Hidden Treasures

“The Scripture is a box without hinges, keys, or lid, yet golden treasures are hid within.”
~Adams Allison~

The Bible, like a goldmine, is filled with precious truths. Sometimes Scripture is very clear about what it says, but sometimes we need to drill deep and do some excavation work ourselves (by the help of His Spirit of course). However, when you dig, what you find becomes much more precious. (For where your treasure is there your heart will be also).

Today, I started my morning drawing strength from this verse and I want to share it with you.

On Stress Management

“Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?”
~Matthew 6:27~

I read this interesting piece a while ago and I think it is important to share it here, considering how complex life has become these days.

A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”
Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.

She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.”

She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.”

It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses. As early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night. Remember to put the glass down!

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy; meditate on these things.
~Philippians 4:8~

NATION BUILDING: A Tribute To Nigeria At 54

“If this country is ever demoralised, it will come from trying to live without work.”
~Abraham Lincoln~

What better for a leadership to offer its people than the following three;

  • Provision
  • Protection and
  • Piloting.

PROVISION

A leadership that cannot provide basic amenities, infrastructure and a conducive environment for business and investment for its people is not worthy of the people in the first place. This is what determines the standard of living of the people and the strength of the economy.
