The world is becoming a very dark place, but this is not at all a surprise to God. When the newscasts are filled with violence and despair, we must not lose hope. Keep moving forward despite all of the adversities. We must not fall apart because the world is. My team and I are praying for you. Rediscover the joy of God’s presence through worship.

Music and laughter filled the air at the recent book signing luncheon held to celebrate the release of “Giving God Ultimate Love: Over-The-Top Mega Love”, the new book by author Bukky Agboola. Marked with great food and friends reminiscing about God’s faithfulness and love, the luncheon brought together a diverse group of people. Proceeds afterwards went to support a nonprofit organization set up to assist victims of terrorism and violence in the Northern parts of Nigeria.

“But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”1 Corinthians 15:57 (NIV).
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever. Give thanks to the God of gods. His faithful love endures forever. Give thanks to the Lord of lords. His faithful love endures forever. Psalm 136: 1-3 (NLT).
I tasted lemonade for the very first time many years ago and became an instant fan of this tangy lemon drink. The standard recipe for lemonade calls for three basic ingredients: lemon, sugar and water. Once you include these three ingredients, you’ll end up with lemonade every single time. Regardless of the adjustments for individual taste, success also has some key ingredients. We’re all hungry for success in our lives, so here is my simple recipe. Keep growing and keep going. You will experience success when you consistently practice these two principles. Help to create the sweet taste of success for others by sharing your own tips for a successful life in the comments section below. God bless you dear friends!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV).
Be your own brand of Be-You-Tiful! Do you consider yourself lovable just the way you are? In a world that tries so hard to mold us into one generic brand, it’s becoming more difficult to live as the confident original version of ourselves that God intended for us to be. Please share your own thoughts and tips on how we can stay true to our God-given original design, gifts and callings. Thanks for stopping by and come back again soon!
“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139:14 (NIV).
A FREE EXCERPT FROM “I MADE IT THROUGH” BY BUKKY AGBOOLA.
“Here I humbly share another of the faith principles the Lord Jesus has taught me. God’s destiny finds us! His divine interruptions transform our lives when we step out in faith, based on His word, completely trusting in and faithfully serving Him wherever He has currently placed and positioned us. He comes suddenly, interrupting our lives with His divine destiny. I once heard someone describe it this way, “God is like nothing, nothing, nothing; BAM!” In 1 Samuel 9, God’s destiny found Saul as he diligently searched for his father’s donkeys. Instead of finding the donkeys he received a kingdom. It found David while he tended to and protected his father’s flock. Destiny interrupted the young Virgin Mary as she went about her everyday duties. The list goes on and on: Moses while he tended sheep in Midian, Joseph in prison… An unending adventure of faith and wonder awaits you!” Happy New Day!
Dear friends Gratitude determines Altitude. Let’s begin to engage, respond and relate to the people around us with appreciation. Not only as an occasional response to the benefits that we receive, but as an ongoing overriding attitude in EVERY situation. This won’t always be easy. Picture this, a morning cartoon once showed a very long line of people at the “Complaints” window, while there was no one at the “Gratitude” window. Thanking God with music, lifting your hands, shouts of joy like we do for our favorite sports teams, or just singing while lying down on your bed, can create a flow from God to us. Gratitude will lift us and the people around us up! I thank God for you my dear friends.
“Let the faithful rejoice that He honors them. Let them sing for joy as they lie on their beds.” Psalm 149:5 (NLT).
