SEE REASONS TO SMILE TODAY: IT DOESN’T ONLY LOOK GOOD ON YOU, IT’S A MEDICINE TO YOUR HEALTH AND THAT OF OTHERS BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

SEE REASONS TO SMILE TODAY: IT DOESN’T ONLY LOOK GOOD ON YOU, IT’S A MEDICINE TO YOUR HEALTH AND THAT OF OTHERS BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

Sometimes, when I’m privileged to counsel some folks, when they narrated their ordeals and experiences, I smile from within me as I say to myself “your challenge is more interesting, I wish we could exchange with mine at that moment”. l always remain calm to help see to reasons why they should be of good cheer and tell them likely ways to overcome the challenges as we pray together.

Often times, it appears as though the person that counsels needs more “counsels” from within. The person that solves problems for others has many personal problems that remain unsolved. The person that motivates others may lack motivation himself but he is faithful and staying positive on what lies ahead.

There is always a reason to smile. It doesn’t matter how the circumstances may appear, it is our reactions and dispositions to it that makes the difference.

When we think about our present challenges and want to get moody, let’s replay from our memories moments of good times that God has helped us to experience.

That we play does not mean we don’t have pains too, that we smile in public doesn’t mean we don’t groan in secret. That we laugh with our company doesn’t mean we don’t shed tears with our loneliness.

It’s not a fake life sir, it is the reality of the consciousness that; better days are ahead of us, challenges don’t last, every day is a plus for us and we are learning from all experiences.

Please folks, if you are privileged to be around those in pains even if your present challenges is more than theirs, render a helping hand with your smile, attention and resource. You can be a channel to relief someone of their griefs and pains.

If you can’t help some due to one reason or the other, please don’t add to their pains and challenges by laughing at them or speaking depressing words to them.

Your transformation is the transformation of others. Your motivations can help someone out of his state of depression. Your smile can wipe away someone’s tears. Your play can heal someone’s pain. Your resources can help someone’s poverty.

I love you and believe in your future. Together we would stand to be all that we can be.

Good morning Fam, see reasons to smile today. It does not only look good on you, it’s a medicine to your health.

Listen to me, Masterpiece is smiling at you as you read. Please smile back at me.

ENJOYING EVERYDAY LIFE BY WARI EKI

ENJOYING EVERYDAY LIFE BY WARI EKI

(John 10:9-10)

“Enjoying Everyday Life” is the title of a television series by Joyce Meyer where she teaches people how to make their everyday lives better by applying biblical principles. The phrase is one that has always struck me, and I feel sad that a lot of people, Christians especially, are not enjoying their everyday lives and do not even understand exactly what it means.

A lot of Christians have the belief that we are just to endure and bear this world, merely marking time till we can get to heaven and then we will begin to enjoy. They go through life with their Bible in their hands, a frown on their face and sadness in their hearts. They see the concept of “enjoyment” as a sin, and shun everything that might give them pleasure. They say things like, “this world is not my home, I am merely passing through” while ignoring all the things that God has freely placed around them for their pleasure.

God made us with the ability to feel delighted, so If the ability to experience a particular pleasure is God-given, and the way and time it is enjoyed is God-approved, then there is no harm in doing so. The problem comes when we are focused on enjoying our lives and make that more important than loving and serving God, or when the things that bring us pleasure are contrary to His Word and do not bring glory to His name.

John 10:9 says, “I am the door; anyone who enters through me will be saved. He will come in and go out freely, and will find pasture”

This verse assures all those those who are genuinely saved that they will find pasture, and then verse 10 goes on to say, “…I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows)” (AMPC).

I believe that Christians are supposed to be among the happiest people on earth, because inside of us is the very source of love and joy and peace, and The Bible is full of promises about how our lives are meant to be; verses upon verses about how God is able to do exceedingly and abundantly more than we can ask or think, how He has wonderful plans for our futures, how all things will always work together for our good as long as we love Him.

We need only look at the verses to realize that God very much intends for us to enjoy and appreciate our everyday lives even here on Earth.

We need to come to the understanding that it is God who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment (1 Tim 6:17), so as children of God let us let go of the stigma that we have placed on the word “enjoyment”, and embrace the abundant, fulfilling, joyous life that is ours by virtue of our standing with Christ.

AS YOU PREPARE FOR EXAMS: YOUR LIFE WORTH IS BEYOND YOUR CLASS WORTH, TAKE RESPONSIBILITIES FOR YOUR ACTIONS BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

AS YOU PREPARE FOR EXAMS: YOUR LIFE WORTH IS BEYOND YOUR CLASS WORTH, TAKE RESPONSIBILITIES FOR YOUR ACTIONS BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

AS YOU PREPARE FOR EXAMS: YOUR LIFE WORTH IS BEYOND YOUR CLASS WORTH, TAKE RESPONSIBILITIES FOR YOUR ACTIONS BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

I have spent over 20 years of my life in my quest of being educated from Crèche to post graduate degree. Sometimes I considered how wonderful it would have been if I took cognisance of my purpose and gave more attention to it at every level of my educational advancement in doing a specialization that interests me more.

I’m not against progressing in academic pursuit and I believe anyone who is illiterate and desires to be educated can still become a PhD holder at age 45 if he starts crèche at age 20.

Often time, after exams I hear students say; “they gave me a particular grade” if they performed less than expected and “I have a particular grade” when they performed as expected. Take responsibility for every grade and you can start the field of interest you desire instead of also saying “you were given a course to study”. No one is given a course to study in the university, we were all offered and we could have rejected to consider what we desired.

I’m also bewildered when I discovered that many get unsatisfied with their grades not because they didn’t do well but because their friends did better than them.

Remember, your interests, preparations, motivations and I.Q as far as academics is concerned are different. There are quite a number of things you can do that your colleagues can’t do, show them this expertise of yours that you are better in too.

Everyone has his or her domain and area of interest. Remember, a Lion can’t compete with a Fish in water though it is the king of all animals. An eagle can run faster than a chicken on land though it is the strongest of all birds even with its vision potency.

Let me leave you with the letter of a Singapore principal to parents for an exam that got me thinking all night. I wished every parent could have a copy of it, it would have saved many from struggling in the class room and get fulfilled in the place of purpose.

Take a moment to read the letter below;

“The exams of your child are to start soon. I know you are all really anxious for your child to do well.

But, please do remember, amongst the students who will be sitting for the exams, there is an artist, who doesn’t need to understand Maths.

There is an entrepreneur, who doesn’t care about History or English literature.
There is a musician, whose Chemistry marks won’t matter.
There’s an athlete, whose physical fitness is more important than Physics.

If your child does get top marks, that’s great! But if he or she doesn’t, please don’t take away their self-confidence and dignity from them.

Tell them it’s OK, it’s just an exam. They are cut out for much bigger things in life. Tell them, no matter what they score, you love them and will not judge them.

Please do this, and when you do, watch your children conquer the world. One exam or low mark won’t take away, their dreams and talent. And please, do not think that doctors and engineers are the only happy people in the world.”

I’m David Olawade, preparing to write M.P.H (Masters in Public Health) exams but I have been writing another M.P.H (Masterpiece Publishing House) exams over the years with my daily broadcasts and articles. One of the M.P.H gets me worried while the other excites me, I know deep within me the one that interests me and needs more attention.

To that colleague, who is frustrated due to past failures or poor performances in academic engagements, be calm. What is more important is the consciousness of seeing yourself succeeding in doing what your purpose would have you do.

Put yourself together and engage your passion like never before. Your life worth is beyond your class worth. Your true grade is your purpose grade not your academic grade. If you have the capacity to also do well in the class, don’t be lazy neither should you be irresponsibility to the demands.

AN OPEN LETTER FROM A LUNATIC (MAD MAN) BY RABO ISRAEL

AN OPEN LETTER FROM A LUNATIC (MAD MAN) BY RABO ISRAEL

I’m the guy you always stared at. As I move about, I feel eyes feasting at me, devouring me with their glance. I know I’ve got a reputation for looking tattered and acting out of order.

I know when my name is mentioned all that comes to mind is mental illness and wild behavior, behaviors unassociated with sane men but insanity has blessed me with what sanity could never bring.

It turned me to a celebrity, it’s given me the attention a man in his right senses could never have, I’ve got the popularity an orderly man could never get.

Only Crazy people get attention sane people don’t. Only extremist get heard, average’s don’t. There is an enemy called average trying to be your friend don’t settle for him.

Mandela was mad for freedom, Pele for football, Hitler was crazy over power, Martin Luther, equality.

What do you want? how are you going about it? sanely? Sorry is your name!

Do You need attention? Fame for breakfast? Popularity for lunch? Then Sanity is a disease insanity it’s cure. Sane men attract no one.

To be watched, you’ve got to do what the average man don’t do. You’ve got to train extra, you’ve got to train out of normal order.

You want to be free from addiction how are you going about it? Go insane till you get it.

So next time you see me don’t just stare, get inspired, ask yourself, Have you been crazy enough for what you want? when you are, people will have no choice but to stop and watch you display. They would never stop if you are sane about it.

So roll up your sleeves, get to work go crazy for your work, for what you love, for what you want to become, that’s what will give you attention and bring your name to lime light.

ENGAGING THE NEXT LEVEL MENTALITY: THE RESULTS ARE ON THE WAY BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE.

ENGAGING THE NEXT LEVEL MENTALITY: THE RESULTS ARE ON THE WAY BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE.

No one would appreciate your little beginnings but would appreciate the results of your persistency, enthusiasm, commitment and consistency.

Don’t give up on that idea and your intimacy with God. The dividends are on the way, keep pressing.

May be, you have been praying over the months to touch some dimensions of God but it seems you are yet to be close to the reality. Be discerning, God is taking you through a process.

May be, you have been advertising that business or expertise but it seems no one is turning to you. Only time would tell, there is always a story that comes with your success for your worries to be appealing for all ears to hear and learn from.

May be, you have started that ministry over the years, spending and been spent, with no physical compensation. Let patience have a perfect work in you, there is no labor loss in the school of the spirit but the compensations have an appointed time.

May be, the doggedness you have contributed to that idea is making you and the people around you think you don’t know what you are doing. The motivation you need is being sure that you are doing what you know. Be wise, don’t compare yourself with those that seems ahead of you, your lanes are different.

That your prayer life can change the affairs of nations. That your business can attract a global attention. That your career is getting to the zenith soon. That your research can be patent.

Convert your rejections to motivations. You can get an ovation where you have been rejected. You are the solution to the failures of systems.

You are the new order sectors are waiting for to dictate the pace of events, be the standard nations are waiting to reckon with.

No one can do what you are called to do better than you. Our generation needs your anointing, expertise, prowess and talent.

Heads up high, eyes on the goals and minds made up. That’s how we roll fellas, some of us need to be reminded of these. I gat your back always, maximizing your potentials and yielding to God in absolute surrender to His will is a reality.

I tell you, I believe in your future and in the reality of your dreams. I’m concerned about your progress and contributions to this generation, tell our generation “We are here”. We are not moved by our present circumstances and challenges, greater things are ahead of us.

For the love of Revival, Spiritual Re-awakening and Global Revolution.

NO WORRIES, BETTER DAYS AHEAD BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

NO WORRIES, BETTER DAYS AHEAD BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

We have to keep calm and always focus more on what lies ahead than what we are going through. The gap between your weeping in the night and your anticipated joy in the morning is time.

We saw something that we can’t stop beholding. We have set our attention on it to the extent that we can’t spare our present circumstances a moment to worry.

We behave the way we see ourselves in the moments we are anticipating daily. Don’t give in to worries and discouragements this month. What makes the difference is how you react to that circumstance and your dispositions in that situation.

Get your mind made up, head up high and eyes on the goal. Everyday is a plus for you. Remember, the challenges that doesn’t move you will definitely move away for you if you remain focused enough. The situations that can’t change your attitude will definitely change their location from your address.

Happy new month fam. Masterpiece Cares.

WHAT MAKES YOUR DAY FULFILLED?; UPGRADE TODAY BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

WHAT MAKES YOUR DAY FULFILLED?; UPGRADE TODAY BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

I don’t need to ask a man how serious he is about his purpose; I only need to observe closely what gets more of his time daily.

A man can only have a fulfilled day when he spends quality of the time of the day in doing things that brings him closer to the reality of his dreams.

Spend more of your time on and do more of the things that brings you closer to the reality of your plans, purpose and pursuits.

The greatest demon fighting a man in fulfilling his dreams is not that of his or her father’s house, it is the demon of wasted time and years. These demons thrive in ignorance and guess walk but can be overcome by understanding the brevity of time and being sensitive to divine signals per time.

Say no to procrastination. Take that step today, re-strategize, add to your expertise, get counsels and evaluate your progress thus far today. Remember those areas of your life that you have made up your mind not to settle for less and have a deep thought about things you promised yourself to do this year.

Leverage on the supernatural, you can be more consistent this year. Spend time in His presence today, pray more and study the scriptures with a receptive heart. There is a limit to what that your 10 minutes daily devotional can do, you have to upgrade. Start up your day by spending quality time in your secret place and engage your quiet time more.

This will also help you, make up your mind daily to always speak to God and hear God first before speaking or listening to any mortal man. This will really help you to be more productive and in making decisions in time of need.

As you plan daily to nourish and take care of your body, engage your soul with productive positive imaginations and thoughts, focus more on your spirit. Build up your faith and stir up the gift of God in you by praying intensely in the spirit.

I tell you fam, everyday is a plus. There is no better time than the time you have now. To all reading this, promise me you will do beyond the usual today and give attention to some of the areas you think you need to improve and upgrade.

I pray for those who are sick, depressed and tired, healing virtues of Jesus and strength is made available for you. To those who are frustrated again this morning due to lack of fulfilment in doing the job they do, in due time, the Lord will prepare something better for you. May the Lord breath on your finances, businesses and academic.

I believe in your future and in the reality of your future. Together, we will be all that God has made us. I’m concerned about everything that concerns you.

Masterpiece cares. Good morning fam.
