I BELIEVE

 

 

I-Believe

 

I Believe…
That just because two people argue, It doesn’t mean they don’t love each other. And just because they don’t argue, it doesn’t mean they do love each other.
I Believe…
That no matter how good a friend is, they’re going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.
I Believe…
That true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.
I Believe…
That you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.
I Believe…
That with time, hardwork and dilligence, I will become the person I want to be.
I Believe…
That you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.
I Believe…
That you can keep going long after you think you can’t.
I Believe…
That we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.
I Believe…
That either you control your attitude or it controls you.
I Believe…
That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.
I Believe…
That my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.
I Believe…
That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you’re down will be the ones to help you get back up.
I Believe…
That sometimes when I’m angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn’t give me the right to be cruel.
I Believe…
That maturity has more to do with what type of experiences you’ve had and what you’ve learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you’ve celebrated.
I Believe…
That it isn’t always enough, to be forgiven by others; sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself…
I Believe…
That no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn’t stop for your grief.
I Believe…
That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for whom we become.
I Believe…
Two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different…
I Believe…
That your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don’t even know you.
I Believe…
That even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you – you will find the strength to help.
I Believe…
That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.
I Believe….
The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything.

Colin Powell’s 13 Rules of Leadership

image

1.  It ain’t as bad as you think.

2. Get mad, then get over it.

3. Avoid having your ego so close to your position that
when your position falls, your ego goes with it.

4. It can be done.

5. Be careful what you choose. You may get it.

6. Don’t let adverse facts stand in the way of a good decision.

7. You can’t make someone else’s choices.

8. Check small things.

9. Share credit.

10. Remain calm. Be kind.

11. Have a vision.

12. Don’t take counsel of your fears or naysayers.

13. Perpetual optimism is a force multiplier.

Remember the difference between a boss and a leader ; a boss says “Go!” a leader says “Let’s Go!” – E. M. Kelly

Mercy

mercy-clipart-mercy-graphic

I stood with strong charges,
OFFENCE – Breaking Genesis 2 section 16 &17,
A crime against the Almighty
No one dared to bail me
Detained and adjourned were my dreams,
Amidst hopelessness, I pleaded guilty to the charge,
When suddenly, I heard footsteps, like in a war,
Then I heard the voice of CHRIST saying
MERCY! MERCY!! MERCY!!!
The earth quaked, the nations trembled, the mountains skipped like rams,
The oppressed delivered, victims became victors,
My offence was dropped and freedom became mine,
He reached down into the depths of sin, picked me up, washed me in His blood,
Took away my stony heart and put in a heart of flesh,
Put a robe of righteousness on me and wrote my name in the Book of Life,
He adopted me as His very own and called me Daughter (Son)
Indeed, Mercy spoke on my behalf!
Indeed I am free!
MERCY! MERCY!! MERCY!!!

In His Mercy,

Adenike.
