    Peace

    When a Brother of mine sent this picture, he asked what I’d caption it. It wasn’t till the next day thoughts and feelings of Peace flooded my heart. The picture instantly came to mind.  It started with the picture giving a kind of representation of  “Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.” (Psalm 124:7) in my heart. You know that phrase, “That was close” It can almost explain a dimension of peace…. Like “that was close but not close enough to harm me.” Peace, is not a state of inaction (not doing anything)… But a…

    Breath

    As you already know that every breath counts…  I’m sharing the lyrics of a favorite song of mine… Please meditate and you can download. Taste of Eternity by Bellarive Father we come so aware Of all that You’ve done Of all that You are Nothing above No, none compare So Father, we come here The taste of eternity Is here on our lips With every breath we sing With every breath we sing of Your majesty It’s here in our midst With every breath we sing All else will fade As You draw near All that we want Is all that You are Nothing above No, none compare So Father,…

    Food

    With all the raucous about the #NigerianJollof  you’d think that’s the  only delicacy served in my beloved country. Don’t be decieved, it isn’t… In fact, how we made it to #day #nineteen of  #wordstoliveby without mentioning #Food is beyond me.  Now that hunger pangs have arrived, let’s talk about Food. Because Where do we derive Energy?  What aids body growth?  (Some awkward ones too) What do some so called Foodie use to torment us? What do people turn to when sad? What do they do when glad? The Answer is Food. Eat well and Eat right… I know the lemme just take some sugar feeling (but I tell you count…

    Gratitude

    Live with a deep sense of appreciation (English complicated matters when I checked for definition of Appreciation). But let’s leave it at this, to be grateful, thankful… To recognize the importance, worth merit of an entity. Yeah, in this parts… It’s so fascinating for some to seem Independent and all that… But truth is we all need God and each other.  So yes, express gratitude. And this is me saying thank you to all who have joined me on this journey reading, liking, retweeting, favouriting and commenting on #WordsToLiveBy. You all awesome, really! Peace. #Gratitude #Day #Eighteen #WordsToLiveBy #SeptemberOfWorth

    Purpose

    “So Tomi, have you discovered your purpose?” Yet another (well meaning) person would ask this question.  I’d cringe internally without any answers, no perfect one liner, no complicated speech on how I’ve been sent to save the world.  This was about five years ago. So, one day I got frustrated and typed a search query on Google “How do I discover my purpose?” (Not sure if these were my exact words).  Trust na, I got  answers. Most surprising/shocking for me was an Article… Okay so this writer says (I paraphrased) “To discover your purpose is not hard at all… Get a piece of paper. When you think of  the reason…

    Google

    I had typed a juicy stuff o on my Notebook app , only to cut and paste on the neccessary platform for today’s Word to live by, but guess what I saw. An entirely different article! And for some reason unknown to me, I couldn’t find it. I will retype tomorrow and share it tomorrow… But not without giving a hint… Google played a rather uncanny role in my search for Purpose (find out more tomorrow). Because yes, I google almost everything. And maybe that is why I get impatient when people ask about things Google will tell them easily. And there is school too, how can I graduate without…

    Imagination

    Imagine life without this Nation, what would we do without you? An utopia of some sorts! The very place of comfort yet would never leave man be.  Always scheming, at work…  Cheers to the times I doubted possibilities of what I thought because but you kept showing with swift, meticulous slides how it shall come to be. You kept saying “See… It’s so easy.” You give direction to my perspiration. I mean what can I do without  you really? Your colourful existence gives life to my thoughts, and here I reaffirm that it is true what they say… Every innovation/creation was made twice; first in the imagination and second in…

    Age

    Age gracefully, age colourfully… And as wine, become finer as the years pass. You’d learn that there are one plus more ways to kill a mockingbird. And you’d learn that though one starts out in  life  as a complete amateur, it is possible to get a hand of life’s principles and become skillful at them. To what end then is this? But to live a fulfilled life… Fulfilment however can only be defined with respect to the reason the entity/idea was initiated. Thanks for reading #day #fourteen #age #Wordstoliveby #septemberofworth
