Do you want change? If yes, then become a disruptor.

Do you feel sometimes stuck into a certain rhythm of life where nothing seems to change?

Today, as you read theses words, I want you to think about the word: 'disruption'.

Some situations in your life will never change simply because you do not disrupt them. Those situations are too comfortable and keep growing like unwanted 'body cysts' being fed by your own routine.

I remember the days where I was still working as a waiter with a university degree... I had studied but I was living a life under my true potential. It was not  the fault of society or the government  but it was my own fault.
Every morning I would wake up to a job I was no longer supposed to do, getting on time, working hard at serving customers and going back home tired.
Please hear me well: 'I am not saying that waitering was a bad job, but  I knew that I was called for bigger and better.

The problem was my routine and nothing was disrupting it,until I  brought some changes to my usual routine. So instead of just getting up straight to work, I decided to get late shifts which would give me enough time in the mornings to apply for different jobs. When I arrived at work, I made sure I was connected on the internet to check my e-mails every 30 minutes just in case a prospective employer would sen me an offer. And whenever I was called for an interview, I would cancel my waiter shift to attend the interview and eventually I got a better job.

What am I trying to teach you?

'If there don't seem to be a change in your life, it is possibly because you refuse to disrupt the routine you are living. Become a disruptor if you want change. You can not expect change while still living comfortably in the current situation you hate.

Some people are always single, broke, busted, unsatisfied simply because they have nurtured an environment where their current situations is too comfortable. They make celibacy, poverty, unhappiness too comfortable through their life routine.

Those things that you don't want to see, I command you to disrupt them because they are too comfortable in your life.

And please, stop saying that you are'fine' when you are not.
When someone constantly says that they are 'fine' while they have no job, no sex with their spouse, no money in their account, no happiness...they are also saying that they are fine with the situation they are going through. As a result they nurture a comfortable environment for those things they hate.

Create  discomfort for those things you don't wanna see in your life.

If You want change, it's time to change routine and become a disruptor.

Rebel against those awful things.

Quit the wrong fights. Stay in the right ones.

Stop thinking that all fights have to be fought...

Sometimes we get in front of a fight and we assume that we must enter it and finish the adversary.

There will be times in life where the devil will invite you into a fight expecting you to join him in the ring. But here is my advice to you:

 'Don't just get into the ring! Because the devil intends on beating you on a set of rules he has already established! The fight you are going in, has been rigged. It's a trap.'

God did not call you to fight all the battles of life. And my thoughts go especially to all my sisters out there. Because women have a natural tendency of worrying about all aspects of life.

This is what Paul said:

"I have the right to do anything," you say--but not everything is beneficial. "I have the right to do anything"--but not everything is constructive.'


( 1 Corinthians 10:23)

In other words, some fights in your life could be distractions  to drive you away from what is constructive and useful. You need to have the real discernment to understand what God has called you to do and to leave out the useless stuff.

In you there is energy, power and in your hands there is time. However, if you decide on picking all the fights thrown at you, then you are more likely to waste your energy, time and power on things that did not deserve your attention at the first place.
How will you get back the time spent in the wrong job, the wrong relationship, the wrong career, the wrong ministry, the wrong city....?
Some of us could get so distracted that we even end up living another person's life...

Why is it so difficult for many to understand this truth?

Many can't let go of fights that don't concern them because of pride. They have been told that 'winners don't back away from fights' or they have been told that 'winners never quit' (which is not a Biblical proverb). As a result they are afraid to hurt their pride.

The devil wants you to relay on your pride...so that he can successfully distract you from your real purpose.
Even if you substantially achieve something positive in a fight that did not concern you, you are still a loser because you were distracted from doing the constructive things.



You will be a winner when you fight the battles linked to your God created purpose.

Let people call you a quitter, or a coward, but don't get distracted through your pride.

Keep the focus on the will of God for your life.

Don't hate the successful, but learn from them (motivation of the day)


Sometimes we need to be wise when living aside successful people.

In the book of Genesis chapter 4, there is a strange story of two brothers: Abel and Cain who offered a sacrifice to God. Abel gave an animal and his sacrifice was well received while Cain sacrificed fruits which were not welcomed by God.
As a result Cain got vexed by the fact that Abel sacrifice was more successful than his.



And God asked Cain:
'“Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast? If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.” (Genesis 4:6-7)

How to make maximum use of your time (advice on productivity and time).

It's already the middle of the year....and here is a question for you:

'What have  you done so far  this year? Does it feel as if your year was productive or a total waste?'

What is productivity?

If you surf on the internet, you may find several definitions of the word 'productivity'  but for me, the word productivity can simply refer to the art of creating or building something with the time we hold in hand.

People often confuse the word productivity with ' just making money'. They might be  right but their understanding is incomplete. It is possible to be productive without making money. For example when a man spends time educating his child , he might not be making money but he 's being productive by raising his child correctly. There are so many examples of productivity not involving making money. 
Let me give you another example:

'I am a writer and blogger, and while I am typing these words, I am not making money but I am productive in a way that someone reading this, is learning something. Therefore I have produced something.'

Handle your life revelations with care (warning).

What is a revelation?

All too often we get confused or narrow minded into thinking that a revelation only accounts for a special dream or a celestial vision.

A revelation is simply the discovery of anything that was hidden and brought to light.

Let me take a simple example:

' Genevieve is a beautiful young single girl seeking a good man. One day, she gets an invite from Paul to go on a first date. She says 'yes' and hopes that Paul is the real deal.  On the day of the date, Paul takes Genevieve to a nice fancy restaurant for dinner. But during dinner time, Paul keeps starring at the attractive body parts of their waitress...Genevieve notices it..something is definitely wrong with Paul.
Genevieve definitely needs to review her date...because she had discovered something about Paul.

How to make 'Psalm 23:1' work for you.

Psalms 23:1 reads:

'The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want'

Though the Bible is beautiful in every way possible, we tend sometimes to cut short the explanations included in it.

It is very easy to assume that we will lack nothing under any circumstances...and yes to a certain extent it is true. You should not be living in lack.

But if we decide to  read the entire verse, word per word, what does the Bible really say?

Hmmmm...interesting question.

The Bible says :

1. The Lord is my shepherd.
2. I shall not want.

The one habit that will make you a better person.

I once shared an apartment (flat) with a family in Johannesburg. Just like the trend required, I could not afford to have my own flat, so it was wise to reduce my expenses by sharing accommodation.

However, living with people does not come without challenge; we share stuff, we sometimes argue or celebrate together but one of the greatest element keeping different people together is in the ability to make concession towards each other.

What do I mean by that?

A few words about sowing and generosity.

Some people  constantly struggle because they do not know how to sow offering gifts.

The most important thing is the building of the Kingdom through soul winning (evangelisation) and soul building (through teaching).

We often get confused to think that all the promises of prosperity included in the Bible are for everybody. Unfortunately when we look closer, we will find out that many of the promises of God are for those who obey God's Words.

For example, when the Apostle Paul wrote in Philippians 4:19:' And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.' , He was not blessing everybody, but he was blessing a group of Philippians who supported him financially. But for you to understand that, you will need to read the context within which the verse was written. To understand Phil 4:19, you will need to read from Phil 4:10-20.
The promise was written for those who show generosity. So if we are stingy and lack generosity, that verse won't work for us.

One thing the Bible says about money,

Please open your Bible (if you have one) and make sure you read the following verse in your own Bible:

'Wisdom is a shelter as money is a shelter, but the advantage of knowledge is this: Wisdom preserves those who have it.'

(Ecclesiastes 7:12)

The above verse makes mention of wisdom as an important tool but have you noticed what it says about money?

The Word of God is our medicine (testimony).

I hate drinking tea...I actually stopped drinking tea for the past 7 months because I found out that it was turning my teeth yellow. You might be wondering why I am saying this but as you read further, you will understand the reasons behind mentionnning 'tea' as a substance I hate.

Last night, as I was coming from work, I stopped at a shop located in my neighborood and I bought a tasteful chocolate muffin. But at night, as I was sleeping, in a dream God ordered me to drink tea today. As I woke up, the dream did litterally little sense to my head but as the day went by, I felt serious digestive cramps in my stomach. I bought some 'ENO' powder to ease the pain but there was no results. As the hours kept going,  the pain was extremely tightening and then suddenly I remembered:
