I WAS SHOCKED I SANG “HE WILL HOLD ME BACK!”

I shared an article yesterday, He Will Hold Me Fast, inspired by a hymnal with the same name about a period of my life. Since yesterday, that song has echoed in my mouth and heart continually.

But this morning, I caught myself singing, he will hold me BACK. It shocked me!

I did a double take and wondered where that come from. Again, I realize, the will to keep a positive attitude, a sane mind and a healthy mental health is not devoid of mental attacks.

Around 2016, I was domiciled in Osogbo and although I was going through a tough patch during the period with little hope of how things would pan out for me, I still was floating.
 
Luckily for me, my parents still sent me pocket money during the time and I tried as much to live on it.

“I’LL FIGURE SOMETHING OUT”

Hello,

I want to welcome you to my month, JUNE! Like I always say, cheers to your greatness this new month!

This morning, can we quickly discuss the unnoticed, unspoken realities of that phrase, “I’ll figure something out.”

It seemed a simple statement at the time you said it, but little did you know, it was a great move by you.

More times than you hoped for or could manage, you had been put in difficult situations… And more often likewise, you hadn’t had ready answers, quick solutions nor silver linings.

Yet, you rose to the occasion, sometimes beginning with those words, “I’ll figure something out.”

HOW MUCH SELF-AWARE ARE YOU?

Quick question, how much self-aware are you?!

Before you think about it, let me tell you a quick story…

Last week, during our Acts & Early Church History class, our discussion sauntered towards miracles (this was the same class we discussed six reasons why Judas could have betrayed Jesus😃). One way sha, black magic was thrown into the discussion.
