LESSONS FROM THE FIRST QUARTER

Looking back, God has been faithful!

Every year is made up of 365.25 days.

I remember waking up on January 1, with a great desire to make the 365.25 days of this year count for me, for God and for eternity!

However, I have faced quite a number of challenges in accomplishing them, but at another level, God has still been helping me break new ground. In fact, this formed part of the reason why I had to take a break!

This first quarter has also been eventful for me, as I have been to quite a number of places, such as the American International School of Lagos, Issele Uku in Delta State, and Ibadan.

I participated in the Hallelujah Challenge, I’m still in the Bible Reading and Evangelism Challenge

The basic lesson I’ve learned is that I must keep improving myself daily, I mean adding value to myself on a daily basis!

Usually, at the end of each week, I ask myself the following questions:
1. What goals did I achieve?
2. What Challenge did I encounter?
3. Did I keep ‘First things first’?
4. What is God telling me regarding this season

Before I go to the next question, I cannot but thank God for my bossom friend -Seyi Suulola, whom the Lord has been using to lift up my hands whenever I’m dropping them. God bless you Seyi.

5. Issues of prayer/How the other person can help (In my own case, Seyi)
6. How are we engaged in Discipling A Waiting Neighbor for Christ?
7. Where are we financially?
8. What’s our plan for achieving DAWN in concrete terms?

You can also ask yourself these questions and experience some of the transformations I’ve experienced in this first quarter.

Seriously I’m glad to be back to blogging, and more so, I’m glad you’re here with me.

And as we wrap up, I prophesy that the second quarter of this year would be more glorious for you. Every challenge you faced in the first quarter would not overcome you, and whatsoever you lay your hands upon shall prosper. You will reap a bountiful harvest of God’s goodness, in Jesus’ name! You are blessed.

Welcome to my world!

Hello! I am Emmanuel Omenayam Ashibuogwu, but you can call me SALT. I am a Christian writer and lover of youths. My passion is to see God's word transform lives. Time management, personal development and purposeful living are my core interests. My goal for writing is not literary or artistic achievement, but to promote spiritual fruitfulness and an irresistible devotion to our purpose for being on this earth. I am a graduate of the prestigious University of Ibadan, Ibadan, Nigeria. A geographer and Urban Planner by profession. I can act different roles in dramas (I hope you are not surprised… lol, well that’s a story for another day). I love to teach and mentor youths through His grace; I am also good at marketing. I advertise, write and of course, PRAY! I would love to meet you all as your lives are being touched for the better, but if we never meet, I pray that my writing would impart vision to your heart, while strengthening your foundation in Christ. See you at the top! You are welcome to my world!!!
