Sorry guys, I've been away for a while now, was away from my computer and the internet for sometime (okay it wasn't that long, but ....... anyways, the important thing is that I'm back ;-) and that's what matters!)
This message was sent in by a lovely young lady (Oma Okwara) whom the Lord is using for HIS wonderful work (It's good to know such wonderful people ;-), and I would like to use this medium to say if you have any thoughts, comments, contributions that you think will help someone, somewhere, someday, please feel free to send me a mail and I'll gladly post it up. Enjoy!


Generally, The world in general measures a man's success by how wealthy he is, number of kids he has, how good his marriage is, etc... But it might be very surprising to know that one can achieve all these things and still be unsuccessful.
" A man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions." Luke 12:15

A pen may serve as a pointer. It may also serve as a ruler while drawing lines (err.... I think that applies only to Bic and Eleganza?), but no matter how perfect it is in these other functions, (as long as the ink is still there) the manufacturer still considers it underutilized, until it is used as a pen. There's a purpose for your creation and the realization of that purpose is what determines your success. Take some time out and find out who you are 'cos there's something beyond what you see in a mirror. The well being of the real you is the purpose of God for you.

"All the families on earth will be blessed through you." Gen 12:3
"And Lot, who went with Abram also had flocks and herds and tents." Gen. 13:5
"If you were Abraham's children, you would do the works of Abraham." John 8:3

The above quotations imply that as seeds of Abraham, your greatness and achievements can only be reckoned as success when you are a blessing to others. Blessing may not only be financially, you can be a blessing by saying a little prayer for someone in your closet. Even a smile freely given, or a hand stretched out in help can be all the miracle your neighbour needs. Be a river and not a reservoir. Flow into lives, change things, make impact. Stretch yourself to the limit. A rubber band is useless until it is streched, release all you have on the inside while you live. As long as people are there for you to bless, your blessing continues to flow.

Everyone that is born of God has the potential to suceed. Just as salt is not valued by how white or how smooth it is but by how much taste it can provide, so also, your success is not measured by what you have, but by what you become to others or make others become. Go on and succeed, you have it in you.

I particularly like the clarification drawn from the pen. It shows how much we could go about being useful in many areas of our lives but really not successful in the eyes of our Maker.

This is a lovely piece shared by Oma (and you). God bless you both.
