A Very heart touching message to a mother by  Matthew Andrews Ayitey. A must read

I celebrate my mum, she’s everything I need for a mother. do celebrate yours too. Because God knows why He placed us where we are.

That woman, Vivian Mansah Akorli. I only wished her ‘mothers day’ once. well, that’s bad of me.

Her last stop in formal education was basic school. she never made it to junior high school. she dropped out of school and faced the struggle of life. she held on to her conviction of a brighter future in the midst of difficult experiences. she’s a strong woman. 

she’s lived with relatives and kept her hope high. she lived a Decent life full of personal discipline and made sure every sacrifice was worth the glorious future. she stood her grounds and made sure she married that one responsible man. Dad, your time will come, because today is about mum. hahaha

she lives a simple life, no fancy and luxurious things. her room has nothing to interest you, but she’s sacrificed them for her children. all she needs is her daily bread, and some few clothing for every day life. she’s given us all we need to come far without considering her toils. that’s the passion of a mum I cherish. I’ve never told her how a great mum she’s. 

when we’re sick, she gives in her all for our recovery. she’s been through more than you see on the outside. she’s happy always cos her children are safe and get their daily bread. she calls me every day in school, I wonder if she doesn’t get tired. hahaha. 

she’s a mum who believes in her children. she’s not strict, but makes sure what we do is worth it. we have our freedom but, I make sure not to disappoint her in all I do. she deserves a good result for her sacrifices. 

I remember the day she was so sick and thought she was gonna die. it was 6 years ago. she poured out her heart to me and told me how much she loved us. she was telling me her final words. I was burdened with sorrow when she recounted her possessions and the few that she kept with others. ooh God give her more years, I cried in my heart. all the things she told me she had were even things that made me cry. they were nothing. two pieces of clothe and some few bowls. then I knew how much she sacrificed for us. she was sick and wishing for longer life to stay with her children. not to enjoy of her labour but to see us through. I prayed and God listened to my cries. 

I’m not a writer, neither do I know what to say at what point or not. but I’m just recounting some memories as they come. some will be reserved for later. 

some think we have it all, but nope. where we are wouldn’t be possible if not for a mum who decided to have nothing for her children to have all. she’s not been to even Junior high school, but her maths about things are always right. anytime you refuse her advice, be sure of failure. my dad will attest to that. hahaha. she gives me hope, she taught me to live for others. she taught me to put others first. she listens to her children more than she thinks she’s right. but at the end of the dialog, you’re bound to follow her lead. Because you get to appreciate her wisdom. 

she’s been through a lot bringing her children far. the good Lord is the only one to reward her best. 

she’s a farmer and I’ve grown to appreciate what she does. I travel every semester from Mafi Kpevekor in Volta Region to School in Kumasi. I carry bags of foodstuffs through it all with joy for two days journey. she tells me, son, better carry the foods plenty for the semester, because you know your place is far and I can’t provide you with enough money to buy foods there. I give her a smile and load my sack. hahaha. 

she’s farm all seasons to get money for our needs. no wonder I won’t let go of farming. hahaha. you’ll read about my farm soon. just keep checking. 

she calls her children if she has a problem. because she said even though we’re young, we’re her family. she trusts that we’ll be there for her and give her any advice or supports due. she believes in who she’s raised us to be. she’ll remain a great mum forever. 

she’s more than a woman. 

I celebrate my mum, her Life is always a lesson. 

God bless you mum.

DO NOT LET SOCIAL SITES fool you. Don’t judge someone so easily. A must read..

There are girls with 500 likes on their pictures who are extremely lonely, and there are girls with 10 likes who have many friends.

There are boys posting so much, who don’t talk at all. There are girls, posting so many pictures with big smiles, yet crying alone in a corner every night. There are rich kids posting pictures of the new places they go, new food they try, and then they are the ones who end up driving alone back home. There are people posting quotes about friendships twice or thrice a day, waiting for someone to atleast talk to them.

There are people posting motivational stuff, waiting for someone to just ask them,”Is everything fine with you?”

There are people, checking in at different clubs/

restaurants and hoping they can find a genuine person once in their life.

There are girls, always smiling, laughing, making joke, yet trying hard to stay alive every day.

There are people posting “Good morning” everyday, who don’t know the reason they wake up daily.

DO NOT LET SOCIAL SITES fool you. Don’t judge someone so easily.

In life, it’s RISKY to take a RISK, but it’s even RISKIER not to take any risk at all. A must read 

Show me a POOR man and I’ll show you a man who
P – Passes

O – Over

O – Opportunities

R – Repeatedly.
A man who sees challenges in every opportunity instead of seeing opportunity in every challenge.
Being a MAN is not a title, it’s a responsibility. It means you have to answer financially in the

M – Morning

A – Afternoon and

N – Night.
You must take great risks to receive greater rewards. 
You must plan and strategize, you must value profit not wages, you must be focused and you must be determined if you want good success. 
Last but not least, You must involve God.
Jack Ma – the founder of Alibaba said: “The worst people on earth to serve are the POOR PEOPLE”
POOR:  meaning  “Passing Over Opportunities Repeatedly”
See the reasons below:
1)Give them for free, they will think it is a trap.
2)Tell them it’s a small investment, they will say you can’t earn much.
3)Tell them to come in BIG, they will say “I don’t have any money”.
4)Tell them to try new things, they will say “no experience; has it been proven to work? Who has gained from it before?”.
5)Tell them it’s a traditional business, they’ll say “it’s too HARD to do”.
6)Tell them it is a new business model, they will say “I don’t do network marketing and how many years has this business model been existing?”.
7)Tell them to run a shop, they will say “I will be tied down, I’ll have no freedom”.
8)Tell them to follow a 1-year business plan, they will say “it’s too long. Please, I can’t wait for so long”.
9)Ask them what can they do? They will say “I can do ANYTHING”.
10)They like to ask friends who are as hopeless as themselves to get their opinions. Even the Bible acknowledges the fact that blind people don’t lead blind people.
11) They think more than a University Professor and do less than a blind man.
Penny wise, Pound foolish.
One major challenge POOR people have is “LACK OF ACTION!”
They enjoy their comfort zone, dwelling and swimming in their “own type of knowledge”.
Anything beyond their reason “can’t work, and therefore it is #fraudulent”
This is the cause!
Proverbs 6:10-11 says: “A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, and poverty WILL come on you like a thief and scarcity like an armed man.”

​FAILURE DOES NOT EXIST…A Must Read..

There are only learning experiences.  Once you submerge yourself into a culture that does not see failure, but only experiences and results, you take away an enormous chunk of negative energy out of your life.
For example, I come up with many different ideas for Engineering problems and new solutions.  Sometimes, these ideas do not provide the results I expected.  Instead of saying “I failed”, I tell myself “I guess I learned something.  I learned that this technique does not work.  I’ll try something else then”.
If you want to achieve highly successful outcomes, you need to alter your view of failures into something constructive that keeps you going until you get the results you desired.
Good evening and always remember “Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.” because failure is not fatal and  success is not final .

​What kind of Christian are you? (1)

From The UCB Word For Today
‘They…recognised them as men who had been with Jesus.’

Acts 4:13 NLT

The Pharisees were self-appointed experts in matters of dietary laws, dress codes, etc. These practices allowed them to decide who was ‘in’ and who was ‘out’. And what’s worse, the insiders became judgmental towards the outsiders. Dallas Willard writes, ‘How many people are repelled by Christians who are unfeeling, stiff, unapproachable, boringly lifeless, and dissatisfied? Yet such Christians are everywhere.’ The truth is, when our lives aren’t marked by genuine joy and devotion to Christ we start looking for superficial ways to distinguish ourselves from the people we classify as ‘worldly’. Jesus didn’t do that! When He was asked to identify what the law was all about, He simply replied, ‘Love God and love people’ (see Mark 12:29-31). Paul writes, ‘If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal’ (1 Corinthians 13:1 NIV 1984 Edition). It’s possible to think you’re becoming more spiritual, when in fact you’re becoming what Mark Twain termed ‘a good man, in the worst sense of the word’. Winston Churchill had a political opponent called Cripps, an arrogant man who was widely disliked for his smug self-righteousness. The story goes that one day Churchill saw Cripps passing by and remarked, ‘There but for the grace of God, goes God.’ One of the greatest compliments ever paid to the apostles is that they were ‘recognised…as men who had been with Jesus’. The strongest argument for Christianity – is Christians drawing life from Christ. The strongest argument against Christianity – is Christians who are smug, judgmental, and complacent. So, what kind of Christian are you?

Don’t Thirst For Attention

Don’t Thirst For Attention

Look, everybody doesn’t deserve you, so stop giving your heart, your body, your mind, to any and everybody.

Just because they tell you the right things doesn’t make them the right one. Just because the first date went right doesn’t make them wife/husband material. Stop searching for it, and let God bring it to you.

Acting DESPERATE for attention is not attractive. Not respecting yourself for attention is not attractive. Begging to be noticed is not attractive. Insecure people do that. Insecure people want attention, secure people demand respect.

Insecure people brag and show off, secure people are humble. Insecure people PRETEND to be perfect, secure people embrace their flaws. There’s beauty in confidence, but confidence isn’t about showing off what you got, it’s more about being secure in what you lack.

Don’t thirst for attention. Remember you don’t have to chase what’s God sent!
