MY EXPERIENCE FROM LATE NIGHT TRANSIT BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

MY EXPERIENCE FROM LATE NIGHT TRANSIT BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

The Punishment- Looking Good, The Bail Out.

Route- Ondo City To Ore, Ore to Okitipupa, Okitipupa back to Ore, then, Ore to Lagos in one day. All glory to God for all around journey mercy and safety.

Arriving at midnight, mum said; “you made me stay awake and worried but happy to see you looking good on the outfit anyways”. Lol, you know that kind of smile that you wear when you hear such compliment.

I thought I was going to “stood down” as a punishment till day break but she had something else on mind. She requested that I must take pain killer pills due to the stress.

I pleaded but she insisted. Trust me, she ensured that she watched me closely until the pills went through my oesophagus as she remembered when I was a growing up lad, I often act the drama of throwing pills away even in her presence by pretending to swallow it.

My Explanation For Activating “Flight Mode” On Transit.

Mum didn’t ask for an explanation for boarding night transit. She only recommended that I should trust God to enlarge my coast so I can avoid public mass transit and also avoid land transit.

The only explanation she demanded was why she couldn’t get through to me after the call telling her the time I would be arriving when I was on my way home.

I told her what I always do on transit. After the driver takes off, I always switch my phone to “flight mode” as I imagine myself on air and to avoid in my mind some effects of gallops due to portholes on the road.

It was a wonderful moment gisting with her through the night after my arrival. Love her like “kilode”.

The Surprise I Gave My Bae (My Coldstone Babe)

Little sister was also dear as usual to welcome me, she was able to later get through to me on call while on transit.

She said I shouldn’t forget that which she always demand from me whenever I’m coming home.

Guess what it is? “Plantain Chips”. It was quite unfortunate due to my late arrival, that I didn’t even see anyone selling “Plantain” not to talk of “chips”.

When it’s Bae’s matter on my mind, I always plan for alternative, “Plan B” which is always a surprise to her and she always value it more.

Don’t ask me what the plan B was.

The Lesson.

Ensure you value your family as you have pledged allegiance to your ministry, business and career. Without their supports in one way or the other may be you won’t have gone thus far.

Value, cherish and maximize every moment you share with your family members. Make it memorable and always create time to see them again as you plan your personal schedules.

BEGIN YOUR JOURNEY 1 By David Oghenerobor

BEGIN YOUR JOURNEY 1 By David Oghenerobor

Joshua 18:3 KJV

And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, How long are ye slack to go to possess the land, which the Lord God of your fathers hath given you? 

I have met so many people with dreams and “wishes”. They have expectations of the kind of man or woman they should be. But they don’t look like they moving towards that at all.

I have seen people who want to grow spiritually, they talk about how “One Day” they will pray for 15 hours, or a time will come when they will win 50 souls per month, or how they will become voracious readers. But when you watch them closely today you see that they’ve not started doing anything.

If you fall into that category or you know someone who does, my question is this: WHEN WILL YOU BEGIN YOUR JOURNEY?

In the verse above, the land had been given to the children of Israel, but they were so slack to possess it. Joshua had to persuade them again and again to go take what was already theirs. 

The problem is that many of us feel that may be because God has said this is what we will become then it’s done and we don’t have any part to play. Well, that’s half truth!

God speaks the end of a thing from the beginning. But whether it will come to pass the way he said it, has a lot to do with us.

Isaiah 42:9 KJV

Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

You that wants to grow to pray for up to 10hours, have you started praying for at least 30 mins per day?


You that wants to heal the crippled, have you started praying for the people with headache around you? 


You that wants to hear God, have you started reading the written word?


You say you want to make spiritual progress, who are your friends? 


Or Do you give up on Godly things once it starts getting boring?


WHEN WILL YOU BEGIN YOUR JOURNEY? 

I know you will begin Now!
I love you, you’re blessed.
