I’M IN LOVE WITH THIS BEAUTIFUL DAMSEL: SOMEBODY HELP ME BY OLAWADE DAVID.

I’M IN LOVE WITH THIS BEAUTIFUL DAMSEL: SOMEBODY HELP ME BY OLAWADE DAVID.

Waking up this morning helpless and handicapped when my calendar tells me that today is October 31. With a great burden in my heart, I have to tell the whole world how I feel. I have come to realize at this point that I can’t help myself. Someone is driving me crazy.


What happened to me? Am I going insane? Why do I shed tears when I behold her? Is it her beauty I can’t resist? Am I taking advantage of her intelligence? Should I tell her how I feel? What if I take the bold step today to tell her how I feel? How would she feel if I tell her I love her? Should I buy her a gift today?

Hmmm! Somebody help me before I lose my mind. It all began years ago when I discover this great affection for this special one. I knew her while growing up as a teenager, she was around me to seek advice about life and her academics. I helped her in her assignments, I encouraged her to be the best in her academics and when she got to her senior secondary school till she graduated, she always had the best result among her peers. 


I remember that wonderful day when I was privileged to attend one of the speech and prize giving ceremony in her school, I was overwhelmed when they called her name for the award of the best student in her class. Tears almost rolled down my face as I remembered that moment we spent together when I encouraged her to best in her class if she values our relationship.


SHE ALWAYS LOVE MY COMPANY AND ATTENTION

She always love my company and attention as I remember those days as undergraduate when I visit Lagos and am about to leave for the university, her countenance depicts that she doesn’t want me to go back. Every moment I speak to her, I am always lost in her discussion, is it her sonorous voice that accounts for this? That I may not be able to answer but what I know is, I always wish I could continually hear her voice all day long.

SHE IS ALLURING CUTE AND INTELLIGENT


She is alluring, cute and intelligent. Her walking posture blows my mind. Her smiles throws me off balance. I always wish I could behold her smile even while  I write exams. I must be sincere here, I often use her pictures as my wallpaper on my phone and laptop and I secretly tell myself “I love this girl”. If you are opportune to read this article and know who she is, don’t tell her this part oo. I beg you my readers, Lol.

SHE IS DILIGENT

She is diligent. I remember those days when she prepares for exams, she reads all night. I beg her many times to help her body with rest but her enthusiasm for success would not allow her. She is a book worm, “Efiwe” as my people call it in my tribe.

SHE LOVES CHILDREN

She loves children. I remember most times when I come visiting, I see her often times with children. I have met her carrying babies and helping some with their assignments. She told me part of her goal in life is to be a mentor to millions of children across the world by helping the less privilege children, building free schools for them, organizing various competition, helping their parents and lots more. I believe God would take her to the peak of this goal.


SHE IS CARING

She is caring. She is really concern about me, she sends me text messages and call me even when I don’t deserve it. She is concerned about my welfare. She is happy when I am happy and worried when I am troubled. As I do observe how she takes care of children, this thought comes to my mind, “she is a good wife material and one day she would also take care of my children”.

SHE IS TEACHABLE

She is teachable. I have been privileged to teach her  many things. I told her some areas of her life she needs to develop, how to comport herself in situations, how to overcome challenges and lots more. She yielded to them and I have seen her made adjustments. What a wonderful girl she is.

SHE IS A COOK

She is a good cook. This is very important. Often time she has cooked wonderful delicacies for me. I ended up dreaming about the food. Some might say may be it is the food she cooks for me that turns me on but I have discovered that it is beyond the food but the food is an addictive for my love for her. I remember the spaghetti, the Jollof rice, the potatatoes and so on. I think the next time I would be visiting her, I will tell her to cook for me or am I too forward? Am saying my mind though.

WHO IS SHE?
Some reading this article knows her because I have repeatedly told them about her. Some are saying, “hope David is not talking about me”. As the popular lotto slogan goes “it fit be you ooo”. Follow me closely and promise me you won’t tell her that my love for her is driving crazy by the day.

She is my princess, my love, my girlfriend and my crush. I think she knows about my affection for her. Hmmm! Should I tell the whole world who she is? What if she hears about it? What would her parents and friends say? Please don’t say I am out of my mind because am aware am really out of my mind to write this.

She is my lovely younger sister, today is her birthday. I love her so much that ink would fail me to tell about my love for her and who she is to me. Please help me celebrate this wonderful damsel, it is a privilege to be her brother. 

Each time I see you, I always thank God for bringing you my way. You are a blessing to me, am proud of you. Don’t let daddy and mummy know this, I am declaring to the whole world today that I LOVE YOU.

I am sorry if I had thrown someone of balance if you think am writing about you or you feel it was someone and not my sister. The other person I would declare like this is on the way, loading…

Please help me celebrate my sweetheart today. Please help me call her if you can on the number- 09025479072, wish her happy birthday for me and tell her, her brother really loves her.

Thanks readers.

For the love of my sister, my family and the Olawades.

Best Regards,

Olawade David B.

IF ONLY YOU KNEW YOUR WORTH BY Dr. BIEN SUFFICIENT

IF ONLY YOU KNEW YOUR WORTH BY Dr. BIEN SUFFICIENT
One fateful morning, as I stepped out of my house, I met a young lady in her early twenties who was a neighbor of mine. I was still a teenager at the time. What pulled my attention to her were the various marks I saw on her body. These marks were fresh wounds and I could not comprehend what might have happened to her. Immediately, I rushed to her to find out what had happened to her and if I could help her in any way. If there was anything I could not stand while growing up was to see someone in pain, injured or ill. I just wanted everybody to be fine and healthy. My sympathetic mind towards the sick or injured is sure one of the reasons I went into the medical field.

I rushed towards her and was trying to find out what happened. Even though I was young, that motherly instinct was very much at work in me. I expressed my sympathy and offered to help, but she said I should not worry that she has taken some pain relief tablets. She said she was fine and will be going to dress the wound later in the day. My inquisitive nature didn’t allow me to let her be. I really wanted to know what gave her such wounds.

After much questioning and pestering, she opened up and told me her fiancé had done that to her. Out of shock, I screamed, what?! She quickly covered my mouth. I said again, “Your fiancé did what? What on earth gave him the right to do this kind of thing to you? Who does he think he is? What in the world did you do that will give justice to this battering?” As I was questioning her, tears running down my cheek. “What did you do to him?” I asked. “By the way, it doesn’t even matter what you did. He has no right to do this to you. Is he insane? I can’t believe my eyes. And you call him your fiancé? No. He can’t go free with this. What are you doing about it? Why not tell your parents? He should be arrested.”

She motioned me to be quiet before someone else hears about it because she does not want any other person to know. She had been telling others that it was an accident. “Oh my God!” I screamed again, wondering if she had lost her mind. “I love him so much,” she said, “and he has apologized. Besides, he was the one that bought me the drug I took. I offended him that’s why, but I know he loves me. Anytime he beats me like this, afterwards, he buys me gifts and apologizes and our love grows even stronger.”



I was looking at her in amazement with my mouth wide open and I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. As if that was not enough, she told me, “He proposed to me the day after he beat me and I accepted.” “You did what?” I asked her. “I accepted because I think he loves me.

There are not many men out there, so you have to keep the one you have. Besides, I believe if your man does not beat you he does not love you,” she rattled. I cringed when I heard that. I could not help it but ask her this very question that was running through my mind:

DO YOU KNOW YOUR WORTH???

It was obvious she didn’t know her worth. She was ready to endure the beatings just to get married. My question is, if a man will beat you this much during your period of dating, what will he do to you after you are married to him? It’s your corpse they will carry one day. I was so furious and left her in anger.

How many more women or men live in abusive relationships today, just because they want to be married or stay married? How many church leaders, pastors, parents tell their daughters to go back to their abusive husbands because they are afraid of what people will say? Without making sure they put an end to the domestic violence.

My dear lady, you are worth more than that. Don’t settle for less. It is better to be single and alive than to be married and dead. I do not believe in divorce, I do not advocate for divorce neither do I believe in domestic violence or tolerate it. Before you say I do, watch out for these signs and if you are already married make sure you report cases of domestic violence. Don’t wait till you are dead. Life has no duplicate. SAY NO TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND ABUSE!!!

THE STRUGGLE TO BE ACCEPTED BY DR. BIEN SUFFICIENT

THE STRUGGLE TO BE ACCEPTED BY DR. BIEN SUFFICIENT

It is quite disheartening, but yet true, the pitiful things people do just to be accepted. Why do you feel you need to be accepted, and in most cases by those who do not count? You have engaged yourself so much in the pursuit of public acceptance that you have lost your identity. You don’t even know who you are anymore; busy chasing shadows while life passes you by. Is it really worth the stress and struggle?

Your style of dressing is decided by public opinion. You have to wear what is in vogue by labels and different designers just to prove a point which is pointless anyways. You just want to feel among in order to be accepted by the society. You are so uncomfortable in your own skin because you have bought the idea from the public of what beauty should be. You fight to fit into the standard of public opinion in order to be beautiful. You want to be skinny, bony, busty, or hippy to be beautiful; not because you necessarily like that, but because the public has said that to you. So, you are struggling so hard to meet the standard.

Don’t get me wrong. I am not in any way promoting obesity in this write-up. My point is, what is your reason for trying to lose weight? Is it because someone said so, or that is the new trend or because you want to be healthy? The reason you do what you do matters more than what you do. Some even go to the extent of doing multiple surgeries, endangering their lives just to be accepted. What a sorry sight!!!

You go to college and you choose a course to study, not necessarily because that is what you want, but because that is what your parents, friends, family, and guardians approve of. The church you belong to is not necessarily what you want and you are not being blessed there, yet you keep on going there because your family or friends attend that same church. You meet someone you like, but you let him/her go because your friends say he/she is not cute or rich enough.

Wow! How much lower will you get on your journey of seeking for acceptance? When will you become your own person? When will you get up and pursue what God has created you to become without living in fear of being rejected?

My friend, it is time to wake up! You have stayed on that mountain for too long. You have already been accepted by Christ, so you need not live your entire life seeking for the acceptance of men. Whoever will not accept you the way you are is not qualified to be in your life in the first place.

I have heard of ladies being in a relationship with guys who demand certain looks or shapes from them or else they will leave the relationship. Are you kidding me? Let them go. They are not for you. Whoever will want you to change just for them to accept you is not always going to be there for you. The sooner you let them go, the better for you. A broken relationship, they say, is better than a broken marriage.

You are worth far more than that. It is time to start living your life and stop following the crowd. You have to be a pacesetter. Let others follow you for once. Are you not tired of following people and escorting them to their destinies without even discovering your own, talk more of living it? You have everything it takes to be successful. So, banish the fear and begin to live.

Those that matter will accept you the way you are and those that do not accept you, do not matter. But first, you have to accept yourself. Believe in yourself and begin to live and not just exist. That is the key to living a fruitful life. There is no greater acceptance than this: YOU ARE ACCEPTED BY CHRIST!!!

KNOW YOUR ASSIGNMENT By Temitope Olawunmi 

KNOW YOUR ASSIGNMENT By Temitope Olawunmi 

On many occasions, we lament and lament on how we don’t seem to be able to live up to our potentials or make sense out of our abilities or talents. You hear some youths say “I can sing, I can act, I can dance and I can write. I am multi-talented and I still don’t know what to make of my talents”.

You know, there are three things that you don’t share with anyone not even your twin, which are your fingerprint, your eyeball and your DNA. When God created us, He had wired everything that we would need to fulfil purpose into our DNA including what we call our talents (Gen 1:28). 
Unfortunately, after we were formed in our mother’s womb and delivered (Jer 1:25), so many us really forgot who were created to be in destiny, because naturally  the mind of a child is a tabular laser, it is empty. So He can’t relate who he was created to be in destiny with who he is now. So he begins to act anyhow regardless of his many talents. The only way we can be in synch again with destiny is by knowing  our assignment.

Our assignment is God’s will for us framed in the moment called ‘now’.While our purpose is God’s will for us framed in the time called eternity. Knowing your assignment is knowing what God wants you to be doing  now.

Today, we find so many young men blessed with a persuasive tongue that speaks sweets words and all they use it to do is flirt with ladies and even decieve them. Many are blessed with the talent  of writing and this is exhausted on writing love letters alone. So many are blessed  with great voices and the best they can do with it is to sing about how hot they’re and how much money they have. Because they don’t know God’s assignment for their talents , they abuse it.

When you have a relationship with God , and you bear  adherence to his leading, you would know how to manifest all of your potentials  because you will know His will. And naturally, your assignment will use up your talent(s) beautifully well no matter how many they’re.
Oftentimes, we’re concerned about discovering purpose ( which I would emphasize next time). However, if you’re able to carry out your assignment(God’s will per time), you will find out that you have succeeded in fulfilling purpose at the end of the day.

For example, the purpose of your parent sending you to school is to get an education, but you were first assigned to KG1 , then KG2 until you acquired a Phd, thereby ultimately fulfilling the purpose of your going to school, you got an education. That’s how assignment leads to purpose.

Indeed, in the journey called life, God expects us to add value to the places we pass through and the people we meet before moving to another phase.

Your assignment is the place where the gloryof the Lord shines upon you and your talent will be utilized at this place.
