The Storm (Don’t Let Life Knock You Down)


Sometimes we live like God hates us and life has forgotten us, it happens, thats just the storm trying to get up to give up in life, it rains so heavy on us and tries to beat us mercilessly. But what you do as a person during this kind of time really defines you, it tells if you’re a kind of person willing to put up with the rain and go far or you’re to scared to get struck by lightning.
Individually we all have issues we are scared of facing, we just wished sometimes they would just disappear, God knows sometimes I feel like other people’s lives are way better than mine, that they have no issues and they’re perfects, their grades are up, the aren’t sluggish and disappointing, they don’t need to take risk cause everything is working out for them and I think, Why do I have to be the one to suffer, look at everybody out there, they’re progressing, they have no issues, they have no challenges but I’m damn wrong, because you see someone living lavishly, being so flamboyant doesn’t mean that person secretly doesn’t have issues going on in their life, doesn’t mean they’re perfect. Life storms play tricks on you and if you aren’t careful enough, you’re going to end up living a photocopy of some else’s life you think is perfect but ABSOLUTELY is not.
I can’t really tell you what your future is going to be like if you put up with the storm in your life right now, but I can tell you this, if you put up with that issues right now in your life, your life is going be worth it more than what it is now, you’re going to have and I have been there before’ story to tell people in the future and there’s no greater joy than sharing a story of testimony and triumph to people than that, you become an icon of hope.
Life isn’t going to go easy on you again you should know that! You’ve grown up, you ain’t going to be running for protection under mom and dad arms anymore, You’re now at a stage you should be able to take on responsibility in your life… Nobody’s going to get in your storm for you, everybody is alright been hit hard or current is being hit hard. Get your grip in life, put yourself together and go and find out what wonderful purpose God has put in your life.
Life isn’t and will never be a merry-go-round…. Everyday we are alive we are in a fight, fight for a secured future and the moment we decide to give up and give in to life terms and conditions we lose.



Felt used or useless sometimes… scared you’ve disappointed everybody… Hey!! Listen. Nobody really cares how you feel, only you do – It’s life, people are bound to hurt you, to make you feel like giving up sometimes… make you feel like what you do don’t matter, like it doesn’t count; But it does. Listen to me right now; You count in this world OK, you really do, You, might not be that kind of child your parents expected you to turn out to be No! but you definitely turned out to the kind of person God expected you to be…. Even if you don’t seem so now, don’t give up, building a masterpiece takes time. Jesus didn’t die on the cross immediately he was born nahhhh…. He grew, He worked, He took time. It doesn’t really matter how bias a situation may be for you right now, just know this DON’T YOU EVER GIVE UP ON BUILDING YOURSELF!! Don’t tie your value to a person or situation they would disappoint you. Nobody is perfect except God. No relationship is perfect except the one you have with God, why? because no matter what we do to Him he will always forgives us as long as we are willing to turn back to him.

You are a teenager, you have purpose, you’ve been given a reason for existing, don’t waste your life on shallow things, things that are volatile, things that won’t count in the next 5 years, 2 years or perhaps the next 30 minutes. Push for what is right, do what is right not just what feels right …… Please I beg you and I beg you again DON’T PURSUE AFTER PEOPLE, PURSUE DESTINY, PEOPLE WILL DEFINITELY FOLLOW BETTER PEOPLE EVEN. Yes, I know you’ve made grievous mistakes in the past but forgive yourself or else you would never be able to move forward in this life you’ve been given to live. If you tie your happiness to a particular person, I promise you that happiness won’t last and at the end you will end up sad and disappointed.

 Don’t let a person define you, don’t let something anything, money whatsoever define your worth, because, you are worth so much more than you can begin to comprehend. Next time you are ever asked what’s your value what’s your worth… tell them to get you the blood of Jesus Christ cause that’s your worth, He paid that you will fulfill destiny and nothing on earth, under the sun, no matter how hard the thing tries except you.

Here’s the main line: you have a purpose. Live it right.




Get out and work hard, there is not fast route to riches or wealth or success or anything you are seeking… if there was a faster way, trust me it would kill you!!!


GET UP AND GET OUT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Why am I alive? Why am I able to breathe today? Why didn’t I die like most of my mates did?

Big question…??!!

Yeah, you are alive because no matter how many errors you’ve made in the past God still cares for you, He still has a plan installed for you. Yes, I know you get scared, confused and worried sometimes, at times you feeling like you are disappointing everybody, like you’ll never live to your fullest potential. You are scared, but you know what… it’s ok to be scared sometimes…. It shows you are making progress, it shows you aren’t stuck or confined to a certain level or position.

But here’s another issue about fear SIN. Sin brings doubt, it ignites fear, it makes you feel like after some certain progress you just fall back to the ground to start afresh. It’s one thing being successful and it’s another being successful the RIGHT WAY. The quantity of your success doesn’t count or matter or mean anything at all if it has no good quality.

I once heard somewhere in a motivational message that the hardest journey you’ll ever make in this life is the one you make alone, cause trust me, you’ll always start with a huge/great multitude of friends that would say they would be with you every step of the way… but the truth is everybody you see alone the road, in the park, on the bus or where ever are going through also have issues they are trying to overcome, though some are greater than the others the world may say, but none is truly the greatest{No issue is truly greater than another}.

So you ask why are you still alive today? well, the answer is simple : Jeremiah 29:11 says it all “ FOR I KNOW THE THOUGHTS I THINK TOWARDS YOU, SAITH THE LORD, THOUGHTS OF GOOD AND NOT OF EVIL TO GIVE YOU AN EXPECTED END”……. Its really funny though, when God has promised us this, we still go about every day of our lives carrying long faces, showing the whole world we have problems, being scared, telling them how fragile we are at the moment, if you let your enemies see your weakness, they won’t pity you!! they will strike harder to make sure you fall completely. But please remember this; it doesn’t matter how many times you’ve felt forgotten, ignored, self-hated, loved less, despised, where you are now isn’t where you will be forever, your current location isn’t meant to be permanent residential area  for you. You are just going through a phase now so that someday, one day, tomorrow you will also have a story to tell, you will also tell somebody I was there before and I made it out, so cheer up and don’t wallow and drown in your own tears – tomorrow is brighter than you can ever imagine. But you have to do one thing……………………………………………..RUNNNNN!!!!!!!

Don’t stick to the status quo

There is something with the status quo that is literally intoxication, you don’t want to move you want to put things at risk. Change is hard change is scary I know but is that how much you want to limit yourself. For you to change you must face the terror of change you must accept that you must fail, because everybody else is scared of doing a thing, if ever body else is scared of crossing the line, don’t hange with them, don’t stop where they stop You, must believe that no one else is better at building a life that suits you more than yourself.


The first thing a human does when he/she sees someone new is looking at appearance. People judge other by their appearance before really getting to know them well.

There is a famous quote that goes “you are addressed by the way you dress”……. And this quote speaks the truth, your appearance makes other think what they think of you.

For sample, when you see someone passing by with a white overflowing gown and a stetoscope hung around his neck, you could tell that person is a medical practisional, no one really needs to tell you that.


There are two (2) dressing methods;

  • Decent
  • Indecent

Sagging, chains round your neck and hand, tattoos all over your body, putting on shoes without completely tying the shoe laces well doesn’t symbolize a decently dress person. Most teenagers classify these dressings as the 21st century dressing where we have the bump short, strapless feminine shirts, so tight pencils trousers. Wearing these things may make you look cool, feel on top of the world…but it’s not going to keep you on top of the world forever. Every minute that passes by designers bring out new styles and designs. Most of the rapes that girl are victim of doesn’t always be the guys fault, percentage of it is on the girl, her appearance, the way she carries herself. Indecent dressing will not only destroy you, it could destroy those around you. – imagine being a church service while the preacher is giving a sermon, you turn to your side and discover a girl sitting close to you with a slim hand-opened shoulder shirt and made her breast partially open, Damn! Through out the rest of that service I bet you wouldn’t be comfortable –. But that’s what the world says is invoked now, the 21st century swagger

Decent dressing doesn’t just only make you look responsible, it makes you feel comfortable. A well dressed person who approaches someone for help would not easily be turned away. Decent dressing identifies you, it brings respect, it also has a swagger of its own. You don’t need to put your trousers below your waist or put chains round your neck like you are a dog or wear deadly tight skinny jeans that would reap in half it you wide you legs to feel in the 21st century fashion show.

The Letter Every Teenager Wants To Write To Their Parents

If we had our chance we would want to tell our parents this…….

Dear Dad/Mum,

There is a point in our life that we feel like being under the spotlight, that we want to be seen and heard by the world, that we want our talents to be appreciated and there are also times we want to hide and remain in darkness for the rest of our lives.

                Parents do complain that we (teenagers) spend countless hours on our mobile phones and laptops, they say that we are squandering our time – that wouldn’t make us productive, but in – some ways they’re right and some ways wrong (depends on personal point of view). The chances of being productive online are high but also the types of non – developmental materials online are also high. Life is Ironic. You can’t put a rotten tomatoes among good tomatoes and expect it to be better and healthy like the other tomatoes it won’t instead it would contaminate the good ones around and that’s how it the contamination would spread to contaminate the rest of the tomatoes but you can also put a good tomatoes in the mist of the bad one in anticipation for the good and freshness of that tomatoes spread and affect the other bad tomatoes No! that one good one would get contaminated/spoilt by the other bad ones faster, within a snap. No matter how you put the bad tomatoes it always contaminates the good ones, it is inevitable.

                We go online, we want to be responsible, we want to turn out great but sites online have been contaminated by these bad tomatoes, Snapchat has been filled with nudity, Facebook has been filled with nudity pages, Instagram, Twitter and there likes.

                You don’t judge us (teenagers) from afar, you don’t stand at the foot of a mountain to determine how many steps it would take you to climb to its peak. I’m not saying that we would disrespect and talk back to you (parents) because you’ve never lived a 21st Century teenagers’ life before No, of cause you should know better than us, but what I’m saying simply is this: When we miss our steps pulls us back, When we fall pick us up and dust our body, Care, Carter and Love us because if you should lose the teenagers of today there is no future for tomorrow. TRY BEING A 21st CENTURY TEENAGER AND YOU WOULD SEE HOW DIFFICULT IT IS GROWING UP.
