Fate

This one touched me…

When you wake up, you plan your day
You list out the things you’ve got to do today
But fate has a plan for everyone
Surprises come as the day is going
You twist and you turn but you keep on rolling
There comes a point when your plan is gone
You may think all is lost but you are so wrong
Fate has a plan for everyone

Ah hey, you never know it all
Sometimes you never see it coming
But all is well

We’re always racing to what is next
But when the Higher Power is guiding us to what is best
Fate has a plan for everyone
The best of plans, the best of schemes
Are nothing but the guesses of mortal beings
So the next time you wake up to plan your day
Remember my words and simply say
Fate has a plan for everyone


I hope you enjoy this one though…

First…

When the ancient Chinese decided to live in peace, they made the great wall of china, They thought no one can climb it due to its height.

During the first 100 year of its existence, the Chinese were invaded thrice. …

And every time, the hordes of enemy infantry had no need of penetrating or climbing over the wall…because each time they bribed the guards and came through the doors.

The Chinese built the wall but forgot the character-building of the wall-guards

Thus the building of human character comes BEFORE building of anything else…..

That’s what our Students need today.

Like one of the Orientalist said:
If you want to destroy the civilisation of a nation there are 3 ways:

1. Destroy family structure
2.Destroy education
3. Lower their role models and references

1.In order to destroy the family; undermine the role of Mother, so that she feels ashamed of being a housewife.
2. To destroy education: you should give no importance to Teacher, and lower his place in society so as that the students despise him
3.To lower the role models: you should undermine the scholars, doubt them until no one listens to them or follows them.

For when a conscious mother disappears, a dedicated teacher disappears and there’s a downfall of role models, WHO will teach the youngsters VALUES?… #copied via Tunde Oyewale’s post

Thank you Jesus for rest in you Lord
Thank you for safety, open heavens and provisions.

Deception…the truth

Hello friends, i think this is a great piece that does a great deal of justice to the current moral quagmire our world has gotten herself into..

(The Six stages of deception)

Deception is a process by which wrong becomes right, and right becomes wrong. It’s a complete paradigm shift of opinions, standards and morals that is achieved softly, subtly and often takes a generation to entrench into society.

If you want to know what I am talking about, find out your mother’s views on things like sexuality and marriage and compare them with yours. The contrast in opinions does not necessarily prove that she is old and antiquated; it may instead prove that you have been deceived.

There are six stages of deception.

● The shocker 
● The outrage
● The discussion
● Tolerance
● Acceptance
● Veneration

If I wanted to popularize the most unimaginable thing in our society, say like bestiality (the practice of having sex with animals), I would follow these steps.

I would select a forerunner to drop the shocking message on an unsuspecting public. “We should start having sex with animals,” he would announce on radio, TV or in a newspaper.

That is the shocker; the bombshell, so to speak. It would inevitably be followed by outrage. The forerunner is abused and demonized by the bewildered public. Every respected leader in society comes out to slam the lamentable reprobate who dared suggest something so obnoxious.

The forerunner defiantly defends the practice. His critics come out even more scathing. But the forerunner knows exactly what he is doing. He is setting an agenda. Many people don’t understand the effect of continuous exposure on the human mind.

I will give an example most of you will understand. If you ask a girl out and she is not interested in you, the best thing she can do for herself is stay away from you or your words. If she continues listening to you, what was initially unthinkable becomes worth a consideration, then acceptable. Many ladies have fallen for guys they swore never to date just because they didn’t understand the law of continuous exposure.

Once the bestiality message reaches the third stage; discussion, the forerunner has done his job. At this stage there is a big debate over bestiality; with most people still slamming it, not knowing that they are falling into a trap.

I know for a fact that homosexual groups abroad were giving money to people fighting homosexuality in Uganda. Then they would also fund those pushing for it. Initially it didn’t make sense. Until I learnt how deception works. What they wanted was to keep the subject of homosexuality in public debate. They know exactly what they were doing. The more people are exposed to it through discussion, the more it becomes less obnoxious in their minds.

That leads to the next stage: Tolerance. At this stage people say: “I am not going to have sex with animals, but if someone chooses to do it, shauri yake (that’s his problem). Others will say: “Who cares what people do behind closed doors?”I have heard these statements being made by people who clearly don’t understand what they are up against. This is the stage at which science kicks in to ‘prove’ that some people are born with an inherent attraction towards animals and they cannot help themselves.

Consequently, bestiality is included in the UN Human Rights Charter and activists are given a new pursuit. Economic and travel sanctions are used to twist the arms of nations that still forbid it.

Then we start hearing phrases like: “We cannot tell people whom they should love.”

The main purpose of this stage is to ensure that bestiality is legally accepted.

The next two steps are aimed at entrenching it at a social level.

The penultimate stage is Acceptance. At this stage bestiality becomes a conventional alternative way of living. All the outrage has since dissipated. This is the stage at which those still opposed to it are called bestiaphobic (the word will be coined) and they are considered antiquated, old-fashioned, intolerant, dogmatic, religious zealots, bigots…. you’ve heard all those words.

This is the stage at which there are bestiality rights parades in major cities.

Then we are reminded that the same Holy Books that forbids bestiality also forbids eating pork, fornication, drinking etc. Then ‘intellectuals’ think, and use that to rubbish the Word of God, and make it look ridiculous.

The final step is Veneration. This is the stage at which the people who practice bestiality are praised. The liberalist media (which includes almost all international channels) subtly promotes them as ‘cool’, intelligent, exposed. That’s the stage at which celebrities ‘come out’ to reveal that they are ‘proud bestialists’.

Then bestiality begins to win fresh ‘converts’ everyday because many young people will do anything to be seen as ‘cool’ or to be associated with some Hollywood or football star.

That is how you corrupt a whole society.

That’s how previously unthinkable things like atheism and homosexuality and all other forms of sexual perversion have taken root in our society.

Unfortunately, in Uganda, homosexuality has reached Stage four (Tolerance). But in the West, it has gotten to the veneration stage.

You have probably heard of the black homo American footballer who “made history by becoming the first footballer to come out”. What’s historical about someone proclaiming their perversion?

So many other people are being lauded in the media for no other reason other than their homosexuality.

Your mother may not be outdated after all. You may be deceived.

If you found this enlightening, share it with as many people as possible. It might just save them from the soaring plague in our society.

Like a River

I’m not afraid to flow like a river
With time
With change
With the environment
From its source
From its place
From the tops
Through places
Through farms
Through countries
By people
By flowers
By ways
Far and wide
Tall and long
Deep and strong
To give
To impact
To persevere
Gentle
Steady
Excellent
Ever refreshed
Always restored
Flowing forever
Unlike ponds
Unlike lakes
Unlike seas
I’m not afraid to flow like a river

Bideka

“Stop pushing me. I don’t appreciate being pushed. You keep telling me to start. But I’m yet to be ready. Even though my mates have started, the pressure you are putting at me to start is getting me even less enthusiastic about beginning a thing.” these were the words of Bideka when her friend told her about Start. 2015. Three years gone, different businesses had started, grown and far beyond the shores of Nigeria. Thousands have heard about Start. Millions touched by the jobs created. Nigeria’s economy blooming through the ‘one-man’s who decided to START. Bideka wished she requested an invite on http://www.startng.com that year when she saw her friend who started a financial institution that same year. That her friend had grown to be one of the wealthiest ladies in town through a redefinition of savings culture for the average African. Another of her colleague had become a super modelling agent. The one that caught her fancy was the one she heard of that got funding from the pitching session to start the energy company. They were now on the TV as the one of fastest growing energy companies. Bideka’s mind skipped a beat when she tuned the radio and heard the voice of a presenter. The presenter referred to his turning point being the day he heard one of the speakers at Start. 2015 say communication transcends the art of speaking but also giving the listener a life. Tears rolled down Bideka’s face as she finally realised she needed the push in 2015. Every other person seems to have started and left her behind. She knew she couldn’t have been less ready if she decided to be ready. She knew the pressure couldn’t have killed her if she gave in to start. She knew it was the right decision to make if she only begun the race. 
There have been several Bidekas. There are many Bidekas. There would be plenty of Bidekas. The punch lines may only be fifty shades of Bideka. But there are fifty reasons, fifty speakers, fifty stories to Start. There are also one thousand people, one thousand ideas and one thousand places to start. There are three days, three places and three conferences to Start. Start. 2015 is only the beginning. 

‎Bideka is totally imaginated and does not refer to any particular person, living or dead. Any similarity with anyone’s real name should please be discarded.
