Focused people are likely to be termed as rude, unfriendly or unapproachable because they will ignore you till they are done with the matter at hand.
More often than naught you hear a parent say to their ward, ‘FOCUS!’ Knowing toddlers and their propensity to be everywhere at the same time, whilst deriving fun from all those things you think make no sense, it is practically an effort in futility. Ask Peter, and he’d readily recount the inner battles he had, trying to keep his gaze on the Master as he took that first step, as his other senses could feel the wind in his hair, the toss of the wave under his feet. As a matter of fact, it was the turbulence he felt in the place of ‘seeming safety’ (the boat), that sent him seeking a way of escape outside.
How do you focus when the noises within and without is almost louder than the VOICE speaking to you? How do you ‘pretend’ and continue with your trip towards that VOICE, when the trouble is in ya face!!!

Last week I was thinking about the man at the poolside in John 5:2-9 and I thought to myself…yes, this is the situation I’ve found myself and I can’t help me, but how do I maximize this lame-going-nowhere opportunity for the greater good? These are what I came up with, I’m sure there’s more!
1) Begin a talk-show at the poolside, with the families that have come and gone, have them tell the world about their stories (human interest angle) – Reporter.
2) Sell affordable, on-the-go necessary stuffs for people whilst they wait for the stirring of the water – Entrepreneur
3) Chronicle exceptional cases and healing, mine is one by the way – Writer
4) Cultivate and improve my communication/motivational skill – Motivational speaker
5) Arrange a pick-up/drop-off for who is willing – Uber services
6) Preach Jesus as the Way to receiving healing, rather than waiting for the angel because I got mine that way – Minister
What opportunities have you allowed slipped by you because you felt incapacitated? Behold and grab them.

Yes, It’s less than 20 hours and counting down to The Experience of a lifetime #1G1V and you have no reason to be absent from the whole gbedu (as a typical Yoruba person would say) but for me, it will be a mix of Gbedu, Unek, Ikwo, Ekom ye Itoro to Abasi mmi. Andikara Eyong ye Isong ye kpukpuru si dude ke esid.
Ooops I forgot myself there…but then I’m sure the Holy One would give you interpretation if you ask. Its happening live at the Tafawa Balewa Square – Don Moen, Donnie McClurkin, Sinach, Onos, Frank Edwards, Angella Christie, Micah Stampley, Israel Houghton, Chioma Jesus, The Alabaster Box, Nathaniel Bassey, Freke Umoh and yours truly will be in attendance. I look forward to seeing you there but then with a crowd like that, I’m sure we will only connect in the Spirit 🙂
I’m loving the moment already and the excitement is high up to the heavens. I’m expectant and so should you. Well, there’ll be live streaming…hook up if you can and you won’t regret it.
Lets go there!!!!! Ose!
*Unek – Dance, Ikwo – Songs, Ekom ye Itoro – Thanks and Praises, Abasi mmi – My God, Andikara Eyong ye Isong ye kpukpuru si dude ke esid – Ruler of the Heavens and the Earth with everything in it.
