2017 SHM Weekly Wisdom Titbit_Week 1_Imagination.

Week 1. IMAGINATION.
Imagination is its own form of courage. God Himself admitted that can do anything you envision possible! To lack imagination therefore, is to be without concrete hope for success.

 
Dream dreams, dream them big.

Imagine yourself getting that job; achieving that goal, that objective.

Place yourself in that role in your mind.

Let the picture of it be seared in your consciousness.

 
That was exactly how God recreated the world as we know it! Stop cheating yourself, IMAGINE! Those who call you crazy now will be the first to celebrate you!
You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!

Financial Issues – How You Can Become Debt Free, Part 1.

  

We now live in a world where you are constantly assailed with a lot of advertisement, (mostly subtle), where you are surrounded by a plethora of consumer goods and items that appeal to the ego, where you are encouraged to hold plastic credit cards that offer the illusion of instant cash access, where you are required (at times by regulation) to carry debit cards even on saving accounts.
The ultimate effect of all the above on the unwary is a gradual descent into debt, often a lot of debt that way outstrips income. And the capitalist financial doctrine is very unforgiving to a debtor – personal, corporate or national!
By careful choice I have been able to avoid the pitfall of dibilitating debt, despite the fact that I have been a successful business entrepreneur since January 1990 (privileged to grow a business from scratch, employing scores of professionals to boot, without ever failing to meet commitments and more importantly without debt!)
So, I can confirm from personal experience that living a fulfilling, debt free life is possible. And so can you!!!
Also, I need you to know that since 1997 I have carried, and continue to carry credit cards denominated in British pounds sterling and American dollars; and of course, Naira debit cards. Despite these ‘traps’, I can still confirm that a fulfilling life, free of debilitating debt is possible!
If you permit, in this series, I would like to share with you tips that continue to work for me.
But before then, let me share with you an experience I had with my mother (now of blessed memory) in 1982. I was an undergraduate then, the first in fact in my family (nuclear and extended), so I had this attitude of entitlement. For those who remember that period, it was a season where Caudroy trousers was the must get for guys. (If not, don’t worry you missed nothing major!)
Long story short – I needed one and asked my Mum for it. She promised to get me one. And because I knew her never to go back on her word, it was settled in my mind. Or was it? Days became weeks that became months and no pair of Caudroy pants! Can’t she see that I stuck out as a sore thumb among my friends? I tried every trick in my arsenal – constant reminders, grumpy, rude mannerisms, subtle and obvious emotional blackmail, ‘hunger strike’ when she wasn’t looking etc. Still, no dice! 
Was I frustrated! And boy, did I show it… She plainly ignored me. And I couldn’t protest to my Dad! Why do you reckon I didn’t approach the Head Master in the first place for my pair of Coudroys?
After a while Caudroy trousers faded in fashion and Denim jeans came on board. Of course my friends moved on to these new items of choice. Then my Mum bought me two (not one) pairs of Caudroy trousers!!! I mean, who does that?

My reaction? You guessed right!
I was least pleased, and contrary to my home training refused to say ‘thank you’! And I made my feelings known! I mean, what for? Who wears these things anymore? You wouldn’t catch me dead going to FAZE 2 (a popular lounge proximate to the University of Lagos, Akoka where boys had fun) in these trousers – not any more! 
And then she dropped the bombshell – IF AFTER THIS LESSON YOU STILL FOLLOW THE CROWD TO ACQUIRE ALL MANNER OF STUFF THAT ARE HERE NOW AND GONE SOON, YOU WILL FIND IT HARD TO SAVE AND REALLY BE FINANCIALLY FREE!
Viola! I got the lesson, prostrated my apologies and thanks as trained and began to enjoy my largesse! Funny thing though, I thoroughly rocked those trousers, and even my Jeans wearing friends made a detour to their Coudroys once in a while! (Don’t ask me what I did in them – wouldn’t even tell you!)
Let us end it here for now. In part 2, I shall take you on a journey of how to live through this season of ‘free’ credit and remain debt free. Part 3 will deal with how to get yourself out of a debt hole you may have fallen into.
It is my wish that you succeed and prosper this year more than before. If you think I may be of any help, please get in touch with me. We will share our experience and help you with tips.

SHM REFLECTIONS_Deceit of Anger

Anger is a useless waste of precious time & a drain on valuable energy. This month beware of this time wasting, energy sapping trap so that your prayers can find expression and manifestation.

Anger leaves a sour taste in the mouth; it pollutes the environment the Holy Spirit needs to work in your life because it radiates negative energy. It exposes one as really powerless, because it takes a real man to side-step this beguiling pitfall.

Avoid anger it like a plague! It is a fool’s temporary release! It is never satisfying. Rather, it is a pull into circuitous rumblings! A Pyrrhic victory at best.

PLEASE PASS ON. YOU MIGHT JUST BE SAVING SOMEONE’S MONTH!

You shall excel IJMN.
We love you!
Happy New Month.

SHM BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS _Book 6_Our Iceberg Is Melting: Changing and Succeeding Under Any Conditions by John P. Kotter, Holger Rathgeber, Peter Mueller (Illustrator), Spencer Johnson (Foreword by)

Book Cover_Our Iceberg Is MeltingMy dear friends, it is because change is inevitable that it pleases me to recommend this month’s Book to you. It is a spiritual law that nothing operates in a vacuum, so if change is inevitable, we need to be prepared how to manage the change that will come; especially as not everybody is ready to embrace even change they need!

That is why this book is such a must read! And the plot is simple – most of the denizens of the Antarctic penguin colony sneer at Fred, the quiet but observant scout who detects worrying signs that their home, an iceberg, is melting. Fred must cleverly convince and enlist key players, such as Louis, the head penguin; Alice, the number two bird; the intractable NoNo the weather expert; and a passle of school-age penguins if he is to save the colony.

Their delightfully told journey illuminates in an unforgettable way how to manage the necessary change that surrounds us all. Simple explanatory material following the fable enhances the lasting value of these lessons.

Our Iceberg Is Melting is at once charming, accessible and profound; a treat for virtually any reader.

SHM Prays_May 2013 – MY DESTINY WILL NOT DIE!!!

Prayer, 10My dear friends, this is our first prayer session in this new quarter of wisdom. I want to bless the name of the Lord for your lives that you are still here and bale to pray along with us. I have the assurance of the Spirit of the Living God that if you pray these prayers faithfully, you shall sing a new song IJMN.

I want to thank God for the testimonies we continue to receive. To Him be all glory, honour and adoration. His praise in the lips of all testifiers will never cease IJMN. For those who are yet to testify, be at peace, this month shall be your month of manifold testimonies IJMN. Let us share in your testimonies. Kindly mail them to salvationhouse@gmail.com; or in box us. God bless you.

Bible Passage for May Prayers:

Gen 28:15 (MSG): “Yes. I’ll stay with you, I’ll protect you wherever you go, and I’ll bring you back to this very ground. I’ll stick with you until I’ve done everything I promised you.”

1. Father, I thank you that I am still alive to realize my destiny in you. May your Holy name be praised forever.
2. Every force arrayed against my destiny in Christ Jesus, the power in the blood of Jesus speaks against your potency from today in Jesus’ mighty name.
3. I refuse to be removed from the divine agenda for my life, by forces past or present, in the name of Jesus.
4. O Lord, shake me to my senses where I have made mistakes. Awaken in me holy anger towards sin in Jesus mighty name.
5. Father, as you promised in your word, thank you because you will shepherd me to my place of destiny.
Please pray this diligently all through this month and you shall see the manifestation of His power.

You shall all excel IJMN!

We love you.
