An aging King realized that if he died he has no one to take over the throne. He decided to adopt a son. He launched a competition and 10 boys made it to the top. The King said to them, "I have one last test and whoever comes top will become my adopted son and heir to my throne." He gave each boy a seed of corn and told them to take the seed home, plant and nurture it for 3 weeks. The 10 boys took their seeds and ran home to plant their seeds. In one home, the boy and his parents were sad when the seed failed to sprout. The boy had done everything but he failed. His friends advised him to buy a seed and plant it but his God fearing parents who had always taught him honesty refused. The day came and the 10 boys went to the palace. All the 9 boys were successful. The King went to each boy asking – “Is that what came out of the seed I gave you?" And each boy said "Yes, your majesty." The King would nod and move down the line until the last boy in the line who was shaking with fear. The King asked him - "What did you do with the seed I gave you?" The boy said "I planted it and cared for it your majesty but it failed to sprout." The King went to the throne with the boy and said, "I gave these boys boiled seeds and a boiled seed cannot sprout. If a King must have one quality, it must be honesty and only this boy passed the test.” We live in a society where people will do anything for success. God sometimes does not give us things because He wants to teach us a lesson. How many people out there have achieved success the wrong way? How many people send their children to expensive schools and build houses,buy expensive cars with stolen money? How many people are occupying top positions yet they stole the certificates? How many people are successful out there at all costs? HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL BE CROWNED AS KINGS IN HEAVEN FOR BEING FAITHFUL UNTIL THE END? I PRAY THAT I BE FAITHFUL TILL THE END!!! Please be faithful to God no matter what life throws at you, even if life gives you boiled seed.
Whilst i was growing up, I remember there is this particular song i was taught in church which is called ‘The lord is the captain of my boat’ . The word boat can refer to any form of travelling such as car, air,sea,train etc. I always sing this song like a prayer whenever I am travelling. Below are the words. You can come up with a tune for it. I can tell you, after i sing this song all fear is gone because I know ‘The Lord is in control’.
The Lord is the captain of my boat, and he will drive me safely ( x2)
I will not be afraid, I rejoice in the Lord
For he is the captain of my boat
However strong the storm maybe, and He will drive me safely ( x2)
If: A B C D E F G H I J K LM N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z Is equal to; 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 Then H+A+R+D+W+O+R+K ; 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11=98% K+N+O+W+L+E+D+G+E ; 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5=96% L+O+V+E; 12+15+22+5 = 54% L+U+C+K ; 12+21+3+11 = 47% None of them makes 100%. Then what makes 100% ??? Is it Money? NO !!! M+O+N+E+Y= 13+15+14+5+25=72% Leadership? NO !!! L+E+A+D+E+R+S+H+I+P= 12+5+1+4+5+18+19+8+9+16=97% Every problem has a solution, only if we perhaps change our "ATTITUDE". A+T+T+I+T+U+D+E ; 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100% It is therefore OUR ATTITUDE towards Life and Work that makes OUR Life 100% Successful.. Amazing mathematics ، and thats why I love it cus it's like our life. Beautiful message! Stay away from Anger.. It hurts ..Only You! If you are right then there is no need to get angry, And if you are wrong then you don't have any right to get angry. Patience with family is love, Patience with others is respect. Patience with self is confidence and Patience with GOD is faith. Never Think Hard about the PAST, It brings Tears... Don't think more about the FUTURE, It brings Fear... Live this Moment with a Smile,It brings Cheer. Every test in our life makes us bitter or better, Every problem comes to make us or break us, The choice is ours whether we become victims or victorious. Beautiful things are not always good but good things are always beautiful. Do you know why God created gaps between fingers? So that someone who is special to you comes and fills those gaps by holding your hand forever. Happiness keeps You Sweet..But being sweet brings happiness.. Do Share it with all the beautiful People In your Life
