Just like WiFi, Cota is a wireless charger that can power your everyday devices.

We overcome

ask and receive

By Alfred Saforo (alforo@gmail.com)

But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and the more they spread out, so that they were in dread of the sons of Israel.-Exodus 1:12 NASB.

Insight

The Egyptians tried to wear out the Hebrews by forcing them into slavery and mistreating them; but instead, they multiplied and grew stronger.

Challenge

When we are burdened or mistreated, we may feel defeated but our burdens can make us stronger and can develop qualities in us that will prepare us for the future. We cannot be overcomers without troubles to overcome. Be true to GOD in the hard times because even the worst situations can make us better people.

Memory verse

But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.-Romans 8:37 NASB.

Only girl problems

Being the only girl in a family of guys can be pretty amazing but then, it also has its own share of problems. This realisation, for me, was heightened during the festive season.

We all know how busy it gets on the home front during celebrations and holidays; not that women have to do everything but truth be told, we do so much to keep things running and in place and that my people, can be very daunting! I remember being so exhausted from chores, I could barely think, let alone do anything else. You know when you get so tired, you lie down and can’t even sleep? Yeah, that feeling.

With this in mind, I surfed the internet hoping to find suitable quotes or thoughts to go with my growing realisation on “only girl” problems and was disappointed to find nothing much to my taste. Little in fact, that described my situation and nothing in particular to say that there are folks out there who like me, can identify with the downsides of being an “only girl”.

The thinker that I am, I decided to come up with my own stuff. You know, quotes, thoughts and may be, memes that speak to the needs of the “only girl”, that say, it isn’t always blissful, and as wonderful as it may seem, there are responsibilities attached. I  also thought about what could point to the fact that as an “only girl”, you’re not alone because there are many others like you experiencing the same thing.

So basically, if you can relate to being an “only girl” at home, in school, at work or wherever, then hopefully you will find something interesting here from time to time that will educate, encourage and even humour you.

Keep an eye out!

Asking in confidence

ask and receive

By Alfred Saforo (alforo@gmail.com)

Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God; and whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight.-1 John 3:21-22 NASB.

Insight

If your conscience is clear, you can come to GOD without fear, confident that your requests will be heard. Apostle John reaffirms JESUS CHRIST’S promise that whatever we ask for will be given to us. You will receive if you obey and do what pleases HIM because you will then be asking in line with GOD’S will.

Challenge

Seek GOD’S will, ask confidently and you will receive accordingly.

Memory verse

And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.-Matthew 21:22 NASB.

Set, go!

Welcome to 2017 and congratulations on making it, many didn’t, one of the many reasons to be grateful. I like to think it’s no coincidence you’re alive in 2017, there’s a purpose greater than you and I realise and this should be our drive as we begin the journey through 2017.

To move forward, we need to look back, not regretfully but carefully analysing our experiences, learning from our mistakes and basically making peace with our past. With that done, we can set our minds on navigating through the Year with a new mindset.

The Year is fresh and we must take advantage of it. We cannot afford to waste any time being slobby or slothful as people usually do the first month of a New Year. The holidays lasted long enough to do all the ‘chilling’ needed; it’s time to roll up our sleeves and get to work. Now is the time to draw up plans and set goals in line with our expectations for the Year.

Remind yourself to refrain from dwelling on unaccomplished goals of the past Year, this will only drag you backwards and weigh you down. Stay focused on what you hope to achieve this year, if possible set a timeline to measure your progress, monthly, quarterly or bi-annually, as the case may be. Set realistic goals, not lofty ones that will drain you. Take one step at a time and keep an open mind so you’re not discouraged if there are detours along the way.

Be patient with yourself and do not be distracted by others, everyone is running a different race and every path is unique. Keep in mind that no two people are the same, that way you’ll be free from the illusion that you’re better off than anyone and vice versa.

Have mentors you emulate. Those you aspire to be like, who display the qualities you admire and are already at the level you’re working towards  attaining. This does not mean that you idolize anyone or try to be someone else. Rather, let them motivate you to work hard enough to become and achieve as they have. Also, keep the right people around to help lift and inspire you; and do ask for help if need be, as my Mum says, “no man is an island”.

Finally, be consistent and remember that timing is everything. No one can be you better than you so believe that you can be and do whatever you set your mind to do. Pray as if everything depends on it and work like everything depends on it.

Have a wonderful 2017!
