It is my pleasure to introduce this column, Posts Worth Sharing.
This is a section where posts that are found worthy of sharing are published. These are posts from social media platforms and whatsapp groups.
The post ranges from articles, stories and prayers that educate, encourage, inform, inspire and motivate.
The purpose of this is to make such posts available for others.
I believe this feature help you also.
The posts that worth sharing today are as follows:
This talks about Celebration of Days and the comparison with marriage:
If you marry the right person, everyday is Valentine’s Day.
Marry the wrong person, everyday is Martyrs Day.
Marry a lazy person, everyday is Labour Day.
Marry a rich person everyday is New Year’s Day
Marry an immature person, everyday would seem like Children’s Day.
Marry a cheater or liar, everyday will become April Fool’s Day.
And if you don’t get married, everyday is Independance Day!
Marriage is the only school where you get the Certificate before you start.
It’s also a school where you will never graduate.
It’s a school without a break or a free period.
It’s a school where no one is allowed to drop out.
It’s a school you will have to attend every day of your life.
It’s a school where there is no sick leave or holidays.
It’s a school founded by God:
- On the foundation of love.
- The walls are made out of trust.
- The door made out of acceptance.
- The windows made out of understanding
- The furniture made out of blessings
- The roof made out of faith.
Be reminded that you are just a student not the principal.
God is the only Principal.
Even in times of storms, don’t be unwise and run outside.
Keep in mind that, this school is the safest place to be.
Never go to sleep before completing your
assignments for the day.
Never forget the C-word…Communicate.
Communicate with your classmate and with the Principal.
If you find out something in your classmate (spouse) that you do not appreciate,
Remember your classmate is also just a student not a graduate,
God is not finished with him/her yet.
So take it as a challenge and work on it together.
Do not forget to study the Holy Book (the main textbook of this school).
Start each day with a sacred assembly and end it the same way.
Sometimes you will feel like not attending classes, yet you have to.
When tempted to quit find courage and continue.
Some tests and exams may be tough but remember,
the Principal knows how much you can bear and yet
it’s a school better than any other.
It’s one of the best schools on earth; Joy, peace and happiness accompany each lesson of the day.
Different subjects are offered in this school, yet love is the major subject.
After all the years of theorizing about it, now you have a chance to practice it.
To be loved is a good thing, but to love is the greatest privilege of them all.
Marriage is a place of love, so love your spouse.
More grace from God.
This is a post that give a quick first aid for a snake bite:
Has a snake just bitten someone? Do not lament.
If you have cassava next to you, take the young shoots of the leaves and chew them by swallowing the juice.
the juice will neutralize the venom of the snake and the problem is solved.
And go directly to the hospital.
The hospital is always important
Disclaimer: Make a research if you are not sure of this.
This is a story that encourages you to believe God no matter what you are facing, He is always there.
A man takes his son into the forest. He blindfolds him and leaves him alone.
He is required to sit on a stump the whole night and not remove the blindfold until the rays of the morning sun shine through it. He cannot cry out for help to anyone. Once he survives the night, he is a MAN. He cannot tell the other boys of this experience, because each lad must come into manhood on his own.
The boy is naturally terrified. He can hear all kinds of noises. Wild beasts must surely be all around him. Perhaps even some human might do him harm. The wind blew the grass and trees and shook his stump, but he sat stoically, never removing the blindfold. It would be the only way he could become a man!
Finally, after a horrific night the sun appeared and he removed his blindfold. It was then that he discovered his father sitting on the stump next to him. He had been at watch the entire night, protecting his son from harm.
We, too, are never alone. Even when we don’t know it, God is watching over us, sitting on the stump beside us. When trouble comes, all we have to do is reach out to Him.
Moral of the story: Just because you can’t see God, doesn’t mean He is not there.”For we walk by faith, not just by sight”.
