A little bowl was placed in a water container and water was dropping directly from the tap into the bowl. After a while, the bowl drifted
away from the water channel therefore it stopped receiving water.
Many times, some supposed Christians feel they’ve been blessed enough that they easily walk out from the source of their blessings.
An adage in Yoruba states that “Odo t’o ba gbagbe orisun re, a gbe e” it means, a river that forgets its source will dry off.
This applies to everyone; whether nominal or born again Christians. Once you forget the source of your blessings cum wealth, the blessings will surely dry off.
Likewise, a branch of leave that detaches itself from the tree will not live long, it will surely fade away in no time because it had stopped getting the right fluid and nutrient from the mother tree.
As believers, we need to daily enrich ourselves with the milk from the word of God. However, any believer who thinks he/she has gotten enough enrichment and decides to walk away will become fragile in no time. It means when the wind of challenges come his/her way, there would be no strength to withstand such wind.
Mind you, this walking away doesn’t happen in a day, it is a gradual process. It sets in little by little, it comes with little; pride, anger, jealousy, covetousness e.t.c. You suddenly see no reason why you should read the bible, after all, you can easily quote some scriptures. Hah! In no time, the scriptures will also evaporate.
Prayer becomes a difficult thing to do too, besides, everything is now moving on fine, why then should you pray? You think.
My dear, do not forget to do what you’ve been doing rightly except you think changing strategy is important.
Well, you can change your strategy but do not make the mistake of walking away from your channel and source of blessings.
Hence, depend solely on your only source of strength and inspiration that is; GOD.
The Blessings of God is ever flowing therefore, don’t walk away from the CHANNEL.
My name is Edet Glory Patience, A.K.A (Crownofglory). To the glory of God, I’m a graduate of English Language and Literature – In – English from the Prestigious Premiere University of Education in Nigeria – Tai Solarin University of Education.
I love to see people especially youths move in line with the injunction and commandment of God. Hence, I became an inspirational and a motivational writer, in a bid to reach out to the ‘purposeless’ youths through my writings.
My passion for the things of God moved me to create a WhatsApp group and a blog. To the glory of God, testimonies are abound of how God has been touching lives through my articles.
Therefore, I have never stopped to learn, unlearn and relearn.
To the glory of God, to further explore and climb the ladder of success, I have added some feathers to my cap of success; I am now a Certified Creative Writer, Content Creator/Developer, Copywriter, and a Christian Story Writer. I also have a certificate in 3D Animation. Please, watch out for more certifications and qualifications.
To this end, I will never stop learning, as I aspire to open the eyes of youths who are still blind to the love of God for them.
Furthermore, I have been actively effective in more than 10 WhatsApp groups; where God has been using me immensely to the glory of His name. Some of which are: I belong to The Inspiration Clinic (TIC), ‘A Place Where People Are Inspired To Forge Ahead In Life’, founded by Mr. Olufemi Emmanuel A.K.A. The Inspiration Doctor.
I am also one of the Engine Room Ambassadors for Masters’ Mind Initiative (MMI), a place where ‘Catalysts are Built for Global Positive Change’ founded by Mr. Hollis E. Idabor, A.K.A. Uncle Grab Sense.
I am also a member of the Babes of Unique Dynamites (B.U.D); A Christian Group Where Sisters Are Being Trained To Be Effective Tools In The Hands Of God And To Be Good Home Builders, founded by Mrs. Elizabeth Oyebola Yakubu, A.K.A De – Raconteur.
To mention but a few…
I am also a certified entrepreneur (though, I’m still on the ladder), my business ID is Crown4King Ventures. I am into mini importation; where I buy directly from from Chinese suppliers. I sell Android Phones, Both Men and Ladies’ shoes, Kitchen Utensils, Wristwatches, Ladies’ handbags, Male and Female Wears e.t.c. You can send a DM to place your orders and you’ll get them delivered to your doorsteps in a matter of weeks. Mind you, A Trial Will Keep You Thirsty For More.
Please, watch out for me, as God hasn’t started with me yet.
