I Want A Handsome Man

She woke up with a start.  

Impulsively and almost uncontrollably, she bellowed “The blood of Jesus!”

His face scared her a little.

She had forgotten she got married a day before!

I want a handsome man!

He has to be fine!

I want a TDH – Tall, Dark, and Handsome!

Yes, all these are okay, handsome men are cool.

Besides, who wants to marry a man who makes you scream “the blood of Jesus” when you wake up in the morning as you behold his face?

You want to wake up in the morning, take a look at his face, and be filled with the Holy Ghost afresh, burst out in singing in tongues!

Isn’t that more wonderful?

However, handsomeness is not only about the face but also about the heart!

What is the point of a handsome face sitting upon a wicked heart? Click To Tweet 


And yet, this has been the lot of not a few!

There are handsome men who are wicked.

There are handsome men who are cheats.

There are handsome men who are evil.





There are handsome men that are rapists.

There are handsome men who are adulterers.

But there are handsome men who are good men and faithful men.

That is what you should pray for, that is what you should trust God for, that is what you should aspire for, and that is what you should settle for.

The face is the pulchritude, the heart is the hidden man.

Find out about the hidden man before you fall in love with the face.

His behaviors will not come from his handsome face, they would take source from the heart.

Beware of the heart that despises God.


Never fall in love with such hearts.

Beware of the heart that mocks God.

Beware of the heart that belittles your God.

Beware of the heart that disregards your God.

If he can disregard your God, he will disregard you!


Beware of a handsome face sitting upon an ugly heart.

The ugliness would eventually extend to the face in no time.

Beware of the handsome man who wants you to compromise your faith in order to satisfy his rush of adrenaline.

Beware of the one that can combine an ugly heart with a handsome face.

Fine man, but he beats his wife!
 
Handsome man, but irresponsible!

Lord, give me a spouse handsome within and without.


Lord, give a spouse beautiful within and without.

I pray for you, God will honor your prayers!

You will not regret your actions in Jesus’ name.

You will not spend the major part of your life agonizing and living in pain over a fine face, but an ugly heart.

God will guide you, lead you, and honor you in Jesus’ name.

You will not miss it!

For those who are already married, God will make your union a beautiful one within and without.

Psa 144:12-14 (KJV)  
That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:  [13]   That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets:  [14]   That our oxen may be strong to labour; that there be no breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our streets.


So shall it be in Jesus’ name!

Your home will be blessed.

Your children will be blessed.

The works of your hands shall be blessed.

Dear Single, Where Are You Going?

Dear Single, Where Are You Going?

Reading Time: 2 minutes

SINGLE –

The wisest king of Israel once said that two are better than one because they have a good reward for their labour. That is if they are going the same way

If one falls, the other can help his friend get up. But how tragic it is for the one who is all alone when he falls. There is no one to help him get up. Again, if two people lie down together, they can keep warm, but how can one person keep warm? Though one person may be overpowered by another, two people can resist one opponent. A triple-braided rope is not easily broken. A young man who is poor and wise is better than an old, foolish king who won’t take advice any longer. A young man came out of prison to rule as king, even though he had been born in poverty in that same kingdom. Ecc 4:10-14 GW

But the pertinent question is which two? Is it just any two? It is definitely not so.

God asked a question, and He is still asking in Amos 3:3. Can two walk together except they agree? When God asks a question, it is not because He does not know the answer, but because He wants you and me to think about the question.

Before you enter that relationship, you need to ask yourself four very important questions.

1. Can he/she go with me?

2. Will he/she go with me?

3. Can he/she grow with me?

4. Will he/she grow with me?

If the two of you are not going the same way, then you do not have a business with that person no matter how handsome or beautiful the person is.

Is your decision based on attraction or direction? Your marital journey is sweeter and smoother when the two of you are going to the same place. Your focus and vision are single. You have the advantage of cooperation and joint effort. You are not pulling at each other, distracting yourselves, and moving contrary to each other.

The pain in your relationship may be a signal that you are not going the same way. Please, do not ignore these signals.

If he/she is not born again and you are, it is a dangerous sign. Don’t say yes to an unbeliever or one with a different spiritual standing.

To be continued…

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I receive grace to cut away from relationships that will distract and pull me back.

PRAYERS FOR THE DAY
Lord, help me today to choose to walk with people who are in agreement with my destiny.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action. Mat 18:19 MSG

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Write the names of your 10 closest friends. Strike out the names of those who are not going the same direction as you are going.

BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY
Jer 26-29

What That Lady Really Wants

What That Lady Really Wants

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Here are ways you can express your love to her.

1. Say ‘I love you’ often.

You wouldn’t imagine how important this is to women. They want to hear it all the time! A man wonders why he should keep saying that because he is logical.

A woman thinks if you don’t say it often, with emotion, eyeball to eyeball, you don’t really love her!

For singles, It is okay to express your love to your fiancée but you must not allow verbal expression to lead to physical aggression. You sure know what I am talking about!

2. Tell her she is beautiful.

Women have issues with their bodies especially after giving birth. She worries about her shape, her belly, her face and more. It goes a long way when you tell her and keep telling her that she is beautiful. I say this to my wife all the time and she would still blush and smile like she is hearing that for the first time.

If your fiancé or husband never says that to you, ask him directly how you look in a dress.

Ladies who are not yet in a relationship, understand that you will not appear beautiful to everybody. If somebody says you are ugly, that is a personal opinion. You will be beautiful to your spouse!

The scripture says you are ‘fearfully’ and ‘wonderfully’ made. So it is okay to be ‘fearful’ to some people. Beauty is in the beholder’s eyes. When your spouse sees you, you will be the most beautiful woman on earth. So stop worrying yourself unnecessarily.

3. Listen to her when she talks, give her attention, and don’t ignore her presence.

This is very important to both singles and married couples. It is important you listen well. In a particular country, women pay listeners per hour to just listen to them talk. If a woman finds a listener in her colleague, an emotional affair is knocking on the door. Ever wondered how respectable women end up sleeping with their cooks or drivers?

They were neglected by their husbands and they found a companion elsewhere!

The highest form of listening is empathic listening and this is what your fiancee requires. It involves a guy putting himself in her shoes as he listens with compassion.

Give her your time and attention. Don’t let her compete with laptops, blackberries, ipods, ipads and other ‘toys’

To be continued…

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I will not miss it in marriage.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Lord, help me to trust your timing.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Psalms 139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Pray for insight

BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY
Ps 139

How To Get Excited About Your Life

How To Get Excited About Your Life

Reading Time: 3 minutes

You have to be excited about your life, yes, your own life. You have been excited about other people’s lives, their achievements, their talents, their beauty, their intelligence and so on. It’s time you begin to get excited at God’s wonder called YOU.

Look into the mirror, and celebrate the lady or guy you see at the other side. Most times, we pretend to be too busy not to give a few second’s glance to appreciate ourselves.

Behind that busyness is an avoidance to notice how special and unique you are.

Life is in phases and the last minute that just went by now can never be re -lived again. It is gone forever. Whatever phase you are in, it is worth celebrating. Learn to capture moments, pause and celebrate the major character called you.

You are the major character that the whole of heavens is intently looking at. Your best days are not behind you, your best moment is here and here now. Tomorrow is a promissory note, but today is a gift.

Celebrate yourself because you made it through the night season and you are here now. Even if you are not sure how tomorrow will look like, you don’t have to forfeit the today you can see now.

I will confess and praise You for You are fearful and wonderful and for the awful wonder of my birth! Wonderful are Your works, and that my inner self knows right well.

Psa 139:14 (AMP)

Get excited about yourself and build a positive self-esteem and a positive atmosphere around you. Others will perceive this and it will make you attractive to them. When you get excited about your life, you are not living at the mercy of others. What people say or think about you does not really matter.

Some people are approval addicts. They go about seeking people’s approval. People that look forward to other people’s approval are never excited. They are too busy, pre-occupied with who is appreciating them. They are always looking for company.

Learn to be your best company. Some people can’t dance all by themselves in their own company. Some can’t laugh or give a little dance step all by themselves.

Ask yourself, can you recognize yourself if you were in another body? Some people don’t know half about the person under their skin.

You are great and unique. You are beautiful. You are talented. You are smart. You can make the right choices. You are intelligent. You are wise.

One of the reasons celebrating yourself is also good is that it keeps you in check. You cannot be smoking, drinking, gambling, having multiple sexual partners and be celebrating yourself at the same time. They don’t go together. When you get excited about your life, it helps you make better choices and vice versa.

Five ways to get excited about your life.

1. Be a grateful person
A thankful heart is an excited heart.

2. Be real. Don’t live a fake life
Seek help where necessary. Don’t fool yourself covering up or hiding some habitual sins. A double life cannot be an excited life. Seek counsel.

3. Be ready to learn every day
Learn how to live life. There is a better way you don’t know. Learning makes life better.Learn more to have and be able to make better choices.

4. Be excited about knowing God
Until you are excited about God and excited about knowing Him, you cannot be excited about your life. God is the author of your life, a discovery of Him is a discovery of your life.

5. Be ready to make better choices daily
Your choices will make you. Right from the choice of thoughts you permit in your mind, to your words, your actions, your habits and of cause, your character. You can only be excited about your life when you have handled well all these other choices.

Never beat yourself down even when you fall or make a mistake. Be ready to go over the process again and you will see yourself getting excited about your life once again.

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I am wonderfully made

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Lord, give me inner strength

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Psa 139:14 (MSG) I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration—what a creation!

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Pray about God’s plan for your life

BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY
Matthew 22; Mark 12

You Were Wonderfully Created

You Were Wonderfully Created

Reading Time: 2 minutes

This morning, let’s look at one powerful, inspiring, and breathtaking verse in the bible. The verse says that you were wonderfully created.

“I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.”

Psalm 139:14

What is this verse telling you? How do you feel when you read this?

You should feel important and unique that your Yahweh says you are as wonderful as all His works. You were wonderfully created.

Let’s break down this verse

“I praise you, for I am fearfully…

This means that you are meant to instill fear in the enemy’s heart because you are made of God.

“…and wonderfully made”

Never has the world seen a unique and one-in-a-lifetime person like you. The world has never experienced you before. Out of all the billions of people on the earth, none is like you. You were wonderfully created.

“Wonderful are your works:”

Everything God made is wonderful, exquisite, and a blessing to all mankind. This same God made you.

“my soul knows it very well.”

The psalmist acknowledges that even his soul knows how great a creation he is. He knows that God didn’t make him ordinary. God made him be a special type of creation, different from all the other creations of God. Do you also know that you were wonderfully created?

Write this verse down and memorize it. When people try to put you down and say you are nothing, tell them how the mighty God made you the most special of all His creations.

May the reality of how God made you always stick with you. Amen.

Prayer:
Lord, thank You for how special you made me. I am special. I am special.

Action point:
You were wonderfully created. Reflect more on this phrase and on the verse in study. Write down the wonderful things you know about yourself. You can also ask people around you too.

Declaration:
I am wonderfully and fearfully made
