Have you ever experienced a time in your life when God seems to have abandoned you, left you alone to fend for yourself even though you know that he knows that you couldn’t handle that situation alone. You feel pained, angry at him and betrayed… Well, I have.
When a preacher of over 30 years gets a message from God, that despite his thriving ministry, he has been limiting God, he sits up to understand HOW? In his understanding of how he limited God, he is able to share through his book, ways by which we limit God and how we can stop it. I don’t need 30 years to know that I have been limiting God in certain areas of my life, so when I saw the title of the book, I was drawn to it wanting to know how to stop putting God in a box.
When the enthusiasm for a new idea fades, when the passion cools, when the odds against you increase and the results diminish, when it looks as if success is impossible, will you maintain your intensity and keep going? Are you tenacious? This is the mark of people who actually achieve their dream.
We all have dreams big and small even intermediate which we hope will all turn out to be the next big thing or bring us 30 billion in the account. So how do we know we are on track? Everyone has said we should dream big, others have said íf we can think it, we can do it (I can still hear it in Mo Abudu’s voice) so how are we sure we can truly do it or are ready to bring our dreams to life.
My first attempt at reading this book was over two (2) years ago. I was still in the intro section when I dropped the book sad & very discouraged. Some questions were asked to get the reader’s understanding about where they were in readiness to achieve their dreams (called the Dream Test) and as I scrolled down I could already tell that my dreams were nowhere near being achieved. I was sad and discouraged (I repeat) or let’s just say I was downcast.
In the light of recent happenings in the nation, we have to wonder if truly anything good can come out of our country- Nigeria; but like in the Bible times, we will always have a few good things to be grateful for.
From the humble beginnings to the Global stage, we truly have some good to showcase and export from Nigeria. Our book for the month will encourage us to be among the few good people left to showcase Nigeria to the world.
I’d have to be MAD to expect different results this year when I haven’t introduced anything new or done anything differently from what I did last year. If I work the same way, at the same pace & with the same people, why should I expect change? Continue reading “I.N.S.A.N.I.T.Y.”→
It will soon be time for new year resolutions, dos and donts going into the new year. As Socrates put it, We ought to first know ourselves before we can know the universe and God. You’d be surprised how little you really know of yourself – Tosan A.
