Wagner Ekundayo by Omoruyi Uwuigiaren

A cockerel sounded it was dawn as tragedy walked the bare chest of the street and wrote frustration on the face of the earth. The land that spread before me like an old balance sheet under the little nose of a shrewd accountant was covered with men who were as dark as the midnight, broken and shattered, like savages in defenseless post waiting for providence to take her esteemed seat in the scheme of things and humble the bizarre tale that is more hellish than the enterprise of a sorcerer.

They were reduced by the cruel hands of an unjust fate, and had nothing better to do than gazing at our mutual friend, the sun—a hot yellow ball that fed the earth as if there was no morrow. I saw tears gathered in their eyes and were not better than a woman in travail in a cold night. It would have been better they never had a dose of his goodwill, for his goodwill was like a grave, lurking in the pool of loneliness, which was the meal for men of little means and those under the spell of confusion.

One of them whose head is like a poorly decorated coffin wore a frown as if he mistakenly hit his thumb with the anvil. The old little man among them who seemed to be robust due to years of inactivity gave himself much supplication like an army of enlightened pastors in a sanctuary praying fervently as if they were next to God.

To say the least, confusion strolled in and stood like a pillar of salt before the wounded congregation. The vital part of me which was dead and buried on the wings of the ugly day walked into silence few nights after he made a short work of a brown pig on a dunghill in the talking forest. Such was the tale of Wagner Ekundayo.

God is Great by Omoruyi Uwuigiaren

Whether you believe it or not, we are in a world under the spell of principalities and powers. Disaster, famine and violence are signs of the devil's presence. His desire is to write frustration on the face of the old earth."Be sober, be vigilant:because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5v8)." But the limitation that the world is experiencing today, does not mean that God does not exist. "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty (Revelation1v8)."

God is ever ready to lead you to greatness. And, for that to happen, you must live in the realm of holiness. "Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God (Matthew 5v8)."

God is real. Search for Him if you don't want to live in the limited zone of life. "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven,and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land (2 Chronicles 17v14)."

Your relationship with God will determine what you will get from Him! God respect's no one. A man is blessed by his contributions to God's victory. "And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be (Revelation 22v12)." Apart from your character that is a key to winning in the game of life, God is all you need to have all your needs met.
-"Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me?"
-Jeremiah 32v27.
