Today’s Menu: THE OLIVE TREE

olive

The olive tree is a significant tree mentioned several times in the scriptures. It can grow in almost any condition and can survive great heat, minimum water, and still bear fruit.

Today’s Passage:
“But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the mercy of God forever and ever. I will praise You forever, Because You have done it; And in the presence of Your saints I will wait on Your name, for it is good” (Ps 52:8-9)

The olive tree connotes tenacity.

You are an olive tree planted in the house of God. Be steadfast, immovable! No matter the condition, you can bear fruit.

In the still of the night, in the hustle bustle of the day, sunrise, sunset, good times, sad times, one thing is sure ” YOUR REDEEMER LIVES”

Go to church this morning with a grateful heart and happy feet.

Happy Sunday.

Yours truly,
Fofo.(@lovecafeseries)

Today’s Menu: A BETTER YOU

embrace

Guess What? It’s January 29th already! The New Year is moving fast and waits for no one.

Today’s Passage:
“Besides, who would patch old clothing with new cloth? For the new patch would shrink and rip away from the old cloth, leaving an even bigger tear than before. And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. For the old skins would burst from the pressure, spilling the wine and ruining the skins. New wine is stored in new wineskins so that both are preserved.” (Matt 9: 16-17)

This year, in order to live the best life God has given, you will need to empty some things from last year

Don’t put new wine in old wine skins – change your bad habits, change your negative attitude, let go of the past, embrace what is good and godly. That way, you’ll not only preserve your days, you’ll live life as God intended.

Think about it! Take action and BE A BETTER YOU!

Have a great day.

Yours truly,

Today’s Menu: SEASONED WITH GRACE

salt-shaker-pouring-400x400

Sometimes, when I need some peace and quietness in the house, I trigger what is called ‘the silence game’; a game where the first kid to break the silence is the loser. With little kids, it works well, for the first 20 minutes (lol..)

Today’s Passage:
Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.(Eph. 4:29)

Being quiet from time to time is a virtue. It helps you process your thoughts, listen to others and yes, even shields us from sin (a consequence of talking too much).

Today, let your words to your boss, colleague, family, friends, subordinates, and even those that serve you, be seasoned with grace.

Speak words that edify not destroy. Make the world a better place.

Have a great day.

Yours truly,

Today’s Menu: FIND THEM

studying-the-bible

Finding something that is missing requires personal effort, time, concentration, a determination to search everywhere, and the patience to seek till you find.

Today’s Passage:
My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your sight; Keep them in the midst of your heart. For they are life to those who find them and health to all their body (Proverbs 4: 20-22)

God’s word is available to us today through different forms of media: paper books, e-books, free on-line apps etc. Give attention to God’s word today.

Diligently seek and you shall find God’s promises concerning that situation, healing, restoration, promotion, favour, grace, conquering sin, whatever the case may be. The Word of God is life.. The Word of God brings healing.

What has God spoken concerning you? Find it and hold on to it today.

Welcome to another green Monday.

Yours truly,

Today’s Menu: THE WINDOW

Woman_sitting_in_a_window

Every house , by design, has at least one window and one door which can be used as a point of exit.

Today’s Passage:
And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, being fallen into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and fell down from the third loft, and was taken up dead….and they brought the young man alive, and were comforted.(Acts 20: 9, 12)

Eutychus sat by the window, slept off and of course fell off. He disrupted the meeting and had to be raised up from the dead. I’m sure if he were alive today to tell us the story, he’d probably tell us he never slept off during service after that incident.

Sitting at the window can also mean staying at the surface, with little or no commitment.

As you step into church this morning, don’t just sit by the window. Be a part of what God is doing , be a city set on a hill that cannot be hid. Be relevant, don’t just join the crowd. Let your light shine!!

Happy Sunday.

Yours truly,

Today’s Menu: A LITTLE……

baby-steps

Today’s Passage:
“For thus says the Lord of Israel, the jar of flour shall not be spent, and the jar of oil shall not be empty, until the day the Lord sends rain upon the earth” (1Kgs 17:14)

When the Shunamite woman woke up that morning, all she had in mind was to manage her last meal with her son and prepare to die. Little did she know that a little empathy, a little sacrifice, a little willingness to share, a little listening ear, a little patience, a little step or act of faith, a little submission, a little obedience would keep her and her son going for many days during that famine.

Today, keep a positive attitude and walk by faith.

Take the seemingly little steps and watch God multiply your efforts.

Have a great day!

Yours truly,

Today’s Menu: The A-Z

dad-talking-to-his-son-in_4de66a624465a-p

One of the earliest things I learnt as a pre-schooler was the alphabet A-Z and I loved chanting it and scribbling awkward shapes with my pencil.

Today’s Passage:

Jesus therefore, knowing all the things that were coming upon him, went forth, and saith unto them, Whom seek ye? They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I AM (He). When therefore he said unto them, I AM (he), they went backward, and fell to the ground. (John 18:4-8)

Imagine the soldiers that would have been sent on the special mission to arrest Jesus; they’ll probably be part of the US SEALS in today’s world. When Jesus said “I AM HE”, the Bible records that the soldiers all fell to the ground. What!! How? Why? What happened?

Jesus is “I AM”….the A-Z, and you can fill in the gap for whatever you need Him to be today.

He can be your Advocate, your Breadwinner, your Comforter, your Deliverer, your Ever present Help, your Faithful friend , and it goes on and on.

What do you need Him to be today? Don’t let your worries overwhelm you.

He is your “I AM”

Have a great Tuesday,

Yours truly,

Today’s Menu: A SUCCESSFUL JOURNEY

wpid-success-is-a-journey

Today’s topic was exactly the same topic preached during our wedding several years ago. Yes, I was listening attentively (lol..)

A successful journey through 2014 requires, not only a well-laid out plan, but JESUS at the centre, the Holy Ghost as our compass, and a determination to succeed (like Usain Bolt does every time he steps on the track).

Today’s passage:
And when he was twelve yrs old, they went up to Jerusalem as was the tradition…as they returned, Jesus stayed back in Jerusalem, but Joseph and his mother did not know…and when they did not find him, they turned back to Jerusalem to seek him” (Lk 2: 42-45)

Joseph and Mary had gone a full day before they realised Jesus was not with them, but as soon as they found out he was missing, they TURNED BACK to look for him. However fantastic your plans may be this week, you cannot make it on your own. Keep the ‘Saviour’ at the centre , He is Emmanuel which means God with us.

Welcome to a green Monday.

Yours truly,

Today’s Menu: HEAVEN’S NEXT TOP MODEL

Recently, the first ‘Africa’s Next Top Model’ was crowned, outshining thousands of other models who enrolled in the competition. The models are usually taken through weeks of rigorous tests, photo shoots etc and one person is sent home every week as there can only be one winner.

In this series, so much goes into finding the perfect female model but as prestigious as the title and fame is, it all ends here on earth.

Today’s Passage:
“In all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility, sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one who is an opponent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of you” (Titus 2:7-8)

God is looking for top models for His kingdom, exemplary examples to join the likes of the hall of fame (Heb 11).

This year, decide to flaunt God’s attributes in you everywhere you are till the world recognizes that you are ‘HEAVEN’S TOP MODEL.

Have a great day.

Yours truly,
