We have many things to ask for, but we leave

In the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ We
THINGS ARE NOT ALWAYS AS THEY APPEAR.
There was once a man who was ship-wrecked and stranded on an island. Every day he prayed asking God to send someone to rescue him, but to his disappointment, no one ever came.
Months passed and this man learned how to survive on the island. During this time, he accumulated things from the island and stored them in a hut that he constructed. One day after hunting for food and returning back to his hut, much to his dismay he saw that his hut was on fire along with everything else he owned!
All of his possessions were going up in smoke! The only thing he had left were the clothes on his back. Initially he was in shock, and then he was consumed with anger and rage!
In his fury he threw a fist into the air and began cursing God and yelling, “God, how could you let this happen to me? I’ve been praying everyday for months about being rescued and no one has come, and now everything that I have is on fire! How could you do to this to me! Why did you let this happen?”
Later the man was on his hands and knees weeping heavily when he happened to look up and catch sight of a ship coming in his direction. The man was rescued and as they were heading back to civilization the man asked the captain, “How were you able to find me?”
The captain responded, “We were voyaging across the ocean when we noticed on the horizon a column of smoke going up. We decided to go check it out and when we did, that’s when we found you!”
In life we are going to be confronted with challenges, problems, and disasters. But keep in mind that what the devil has meant for bad, God can transform into your good! What is a catastrophe can sometimes be a blessing in disguise.
“The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.”
I HAVE LEARNED THAT SOMETIMES THE DARKEST TIMES CAN BRING US TO THE BRIGHTEST PLACES. –
sometimes, the darkest
times can bring us to the brightest places.
That our most painful struggles can grant us the most
necessary growth; and that the most heartbreaking
losses of friendship and love can make room for the most wonderful people.
I’ve learned that what
seems like a curse at the moment can actually be
a blessing, and that what seems like the end of the
road is actually just the discovery that we are
meant to travel down a different path.
that no matter how difficult things seem, there is
And I’ve learned that no matter how
powerless we feel or how horrible things seem, we
can’t give up.
We have to keep going. Even when it’s scary, even
when all of our strength seems gone, we have to
keep picking ourselves back up and moving
forward, because whatever we’re battling in the
moment, it will pass, and we will make it through.
We’ve made it this far.
We can make it through
whatever comes next.
1. Be very selective when it comes to choosing friends. People now a days don’t know the true meaning of friendship and loyalty.
2. Know your worth. Know when you have had enough. And move on from the people who keep ruining your happiness.
3. What comes easy, will not always last. And what will last, will not always come easy.
4. Letting go is never easy, but sometimes it’s necessary.
5. You don’t need to waste your time on someone who only wants you around when it fits their needs.
6. Stop crying over yesterday and start smiling for tomorrow.
7. Find someone who wants you as much as you want them.
8. In life, there are some people you’re going to have to lose in order to find yourself.
We living in a sick world.
So many lovely hearts got heartbroken still thirsty
for a piece of love. The past left so many wth tears
and yet so many cry when they think of the past
Coz it hurts to live beautiful wth someone ..
Dream passionately and love wholeheartedly yet ur
heart payed back with rejection and betrayal
If the past leaves u wth nothing but tears its the
best time to move on And never lose hope Coz love
comes to those who never lose hope even
It comes to those who believe even betrayed
Love comes to those who still love even been hurt
Don’t let the past ruin the beauty of tomorrow. U
wil never know what Gods holds u. So keep goin
no matter how stuck ur life seem to be.
I promise one day ….u wil find Happines that will
overcome the stress of the past.
Be a good man to your girl,
because there are other men out there who are waiting for you to fail,
for you and her to have a fight bad enough for her to leave you, for you and her to have an argument dramatic enough for her to not want to be with you anymore, for you to make a mistake that’ll be heartbreaking enough for her to be done with you. There are other guys out there who are hoping that the two of you don’t last, who are hoping that they’ll be ones your girl runs to for comfort when y’all are having problems, who are wishing to be in the right place and the right time when she’s feeling vulnerable, who are praying for her to get bored with you so that they can show her how better than you they are.
There are some of your own “bros” that would tell you they’re happy for you, that would listen to you when you tell them how much you care about her, that would be there for you when you’re stressed out about her, and these are the same bros who would be the first to try to bring her home if you and her ever broke up. If you aren’t a good man to your girl, best believe there are other boys out there who never stopped waiting for their own chance to make her happy. Don’t get too comfortable in thinking you’re not going to lose her, don’t get too complacent in believing you can stop fighting for her, and don’t get too lazy in keeping up with your efforts to show her that you deserve her, because every other dude out there does not mind loving her the way she’s supposed to be loved if you’re not capable of it.
A political expert has downplayed influence of party Vice Presidents on improving chances of various parties during general elections.
The remarks by Chancellor College-based commentator Ernest Thindwa follow a tendency by parties of choosing Vice Presidents in various regions to boost party structures during polls.
But Thindwa has questioned rationale behind such procedure saying although the measure is aimed at making parties have a national face; parties are still concentrated in regions.
According to Thindwa, the country has only witnessed running mates playing a central role of being king makers during elections by amassing more votes in region of origin.
Never allow the mistakes of yesterday put your
life on hold.
Don’t live your life in pains because your marriage
Never allow anyone look down on you because
you’re still single. A man that wins your love with
money alone may not stay for long.
A man that feels like he’s doing you a favour by
dating you can mess up your life.
A temperamental man that shouts on you might
end up slapping you and beat the hell out you
when you get married to him.
Never start a new relationship without praying to
GOD and don’t ever use prayer where action is
AM I ON POINT???
In its second quarter report for 2018 released today, the EIU’s Malawi analysis also includes the following highlights:
ON SAULOS CHILIMA
“Being an outsider, Mr Chilima will not be a serious challenger in the DPP nominations, and deep divisions impede the MCP’s own chances at the poll. As such, we still expect a Peter Mutharika victory, and our forecast is unchanged.”
ON JOYCE BANDA
“It is too early to know what role Mrs Banda will play ahead of the elections, or indeed if she will face legal action over cash-gate. Either way, though, we do not anticipate her being a serious electoral challenger should she stand for the presidency, and our forecast for Peter Mutharika of the DPP to win is unchanged.
ON DPP MPs ENDORSEMENT OF APM
“Despite the rifts within the DPP, Mr Mutharika continues to hold majority support and we
continue to expect him to stand in the 2019 election. We still expect him to win at this point, but internal differences make this forecast increasingly risky, which we will highlight in the next report.”
ON 2018/19 NATIOBAL BUDGET
“With a three-year funded IMF programme in place, Malawi is no longer a pariah in the eyes of donors, the days of rapid inflation are over and the economy is poised to enter into a healthier growth phase.”
You can’t give what you don’t have.
If you’ve never received the selfless love of God,
what then are you giving your spouse? The best thing you can do for your marriage is to fall in love with God so much that He displaces your spouse to second place position.
BEST INSPIRATION EVER
1. Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.
2. Follow your passion, be prepared to work hard and sacrifice, and above all, don’t let anyone limit your dreams.
3. A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship and he who plants kindness gathers love.
4. Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future.Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, wether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.
5. Passion is one great force that unleashes creativity, because if you’re passionate about something, then you’re more willing to take risk.
6. Life is made up, not of great sacrifices or duties, but of little things, in which smile and kindness, and small obligations given habitually, are what preserve the heart and secure comfort.
10 lies your parents told you as a child you still believe today
1.Sitting too close to the TV will ruin your eyesight
Not only is this not true, but it just so happens that children are better at focusing at up-close objects than adults. So…old people in the back. Beware, however, that sitting close to the TV may be an indication of nearsightedness.
2.Looking inside the microwave while it’s running will deform your future babies
Unless your “Science Oven” has a leak in it, you, your future babies and your frozen Michelina’s should be A OK.
3.Eating carrots will give you night vision
This one’s not all fiction, but it’s not exactly an “if one than the other” situation. The fact is that vitamin A promotes good eye health, and carrots contain beta-carotene, which the body converts to Vitamin A. So, while it won’t increase your visual acuity (at night or during the day), and there are plenty of other foods that deliver Vitamin A (eggs, milk, sweet potato), it’s still the best reason we can think of for you and your kids to finish those carrots. All of them.
4.If you swallow your gum, it will stay in your stomach for seven years
Okay, if you somehow swallow several packs of gum every single day, that might lead to some health consequences – there’s a teeny, tiny, miniscule risk that all that gum will stick to each other and potentially cause a blockage. However, the idea that swallowed gum will stay in your system for seven years, or that it can’t be digested whatsoever, is ridiculous. Your stomach is a pit of acid that digests most things it encounters. The only real reason your parents told you that swallowing gum would leave you with gum in your gut for years to come is because they were worried you’d choke on that gum if you tried to swallow it.
5.You can’t go swimming for 30 minutes after eating
There’s no doubt that water is a danger for kids at any time, but eating does not exacerbate that danger. A better reason for them to wait to go in the pool after dinner: dishes.
6.Cracking your knuckles will give you arthritis.
Is it annoying to hear tiny child bones repeatedly sucking and popping in and out of their lubricated joints? Undoubtedly, yes. But will it result in permanent damage? No, so long as it doesn’t cause pain.
7.Reading in the dark will damage your eyes
Adults will say anything when it’s time to get their kids to bed. And he may give himself a headache (and you a headache too when he’s less than pleasant the next morning), but reading in insufficient light does not damage eye sight.
8.Every grain of rice left in your bowl is a year of bad luck
Patience is a good thing. Not wasting food is a good thing. Believing the future of your happiness depends on few small bits of starch on the bottom of your bowl is maybe not a good thing.
9.If you eat that watermelon seed, a tree will grow in your stomach
This one is almost true, only, it forgot one crucial step: you have to poop out the seed for the tree to grow. Unless you live in a Skittles commercial.
10.If you sneeze with your eyes open, they might fall out
Sneezes are mysterious things. Do they hurt? Do they feel good? We don’t know, and so it makes sense that we make stuff up about them. Most people naturally close their eyes when they sneeze, but if you hold them open, even though the blood pressure behind your eyes is technically elevated, your eyes will absolutely not pop out of your head.
ONE DAY I DECIDED TO QUIT.
I quit my job, my relationship, my spirituality… I
wanted to quit my life.
I went to the woods to have one last talk with
“God”, I asked,
“Can you give me one good reason not to quit?”.
His answer surprised me…
“Look around”, He said. “Do you see the fern and
the bamboo ?
“Yes”, I replied.
“When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I
took very good care of them.
I gave them light.I gave them water.The fern
quickly grew from the earth.
Its brilliant green covered the floor.Yet nothing
came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on
In the second year the Fern grew
more vibrant and plentiful.
And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed.
But I did not quit on the bamboo. He said.
“In year three there was still nothing from the
bamboo seed.But I would not quit.
In year four, again, there was nothing from the
bamboo seed. I would not quit.” He said.
“Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout emerged from
the earth. Compared to the fern it was seemingly
small and insignificant…But just 6 months later
the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall.
It had spent the five years growing roots. Those
roots made it strong and gave it what it needed
to survive.I would not give any of my creations a
challenge it could not handle.”
He asked me.
“Did you know, my child, that all
this time you have been struggling, you have
actually been growing roots”.
“I would not quit on the bamboo.I will never quit
“Don’t compare yourself to others.” He said.”The
bamboo had a different Purpose than the fern.
Yet they both make the forest beautiful.””Your
time will come”, God said to me.
“You will rise high”.
“How high should I rise?” I asked.
“How high will the bamboo rise?” He asked in
“As high as it can?” I questioned.”Yes.” He said,
“Give Me glory by rising as high as you can.”
I left the forest and brought back this story.I hope
these words can help you see that God will never
give up on
you.Never, Never, Never, Give up.
Don’t tell the GOD how big the problem is, tell the
problem how Great the GOD is!

Nokia Case Study: Something to ponder:
During the press conference to announce NOKIA being acquired by Microsoft, Nokia CEO ended his speech saying this “we didn’t do anything wrong, but somehow, we lost”. Upon saying that, all his management team, himself included, teared sadly.
Nokia has been a respectable company. They didn’t do anything wrong in their business, however, the world changed too fast. Their opponents were too powerful.
They missed out on learning, they missed out on changing, and thus they lost the opportunity at hand to make it big. Not only did they missed the opportunity to earn big money, they lost their chance of survival.
The message of this story is, if you don’t change, you shall be removed from the competition.
It’s not wrong if you don’t want to learn new things. However, if your thoughts and mindset cannot catch up with time, you will be eliminated.
1. The advantage you have yesterday, will be replaced by the trends of tomorrow. You don’t have to do anything wrong, as long as your competitors catch the wave and do it RIGHT, you can lose out and fail.
2. To change and improve yourself is giving yourself a second chance. To be forced by others to change, is like being discarded.
Those who refuse to learn & improve, will definitely one day become redundant & not relevant to the industry. They will learn the lesson in a hard & expensive way.
