Woooowww!!! So soon, it’s one year already. A Monday like this last year #BGIM (Bless God It’s Monday) was officially launched and indeed God has been good to make us reach this milestone with our Monday Editions. We bless God for #BGIM.
#BGIM @ 1 Year: LITTLE BY LITTLE
Isaiah 28:10 (ESV) reads “For it is precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little” (Also in verse 13)
Some versions put it as “Do this, do that….”, “…a rule for this, a rule for that…” but all end with “a little here, a little there”
I have realised that the changes and improvements in life that last are not the ones that happen sudden but the ones by that HAPPEN SMALL-SMALL REPEATEDLY.
Small-small repeatedly. Remember little drops of water make a mighty ocean. Sometimes we are so overwhelmed with the doing of BIG things such that when the enormity of the situation or challenge begins to prove too strong 💪 for us, we begin to lose hope of finishing and finally give up.
Every big thing is made of small things. So if we can break the big things into its small parts and work on them *consistently*, we would collectively accomplish /overcome that big thing.
Dr. Larebee told Akeelah in the movie 🎬 “Akeelah and the Spelling Bee” that big words come from small words so in order for her to spell big words she had to learn how to spell all the small words in this world in order to become the Spelling Bee Champion 🏆 she eventually became.
I also overcame a HUGE challenge this past week by the same “little by little” principle. So i can attest to the fact that this principle works. Every huge challenge in this life can be broken into smaller challenges and dealt with.
So the next time, a challenge is ahead of you which seems insurmountable but needs to be done, consciously break it down into smaller tasks and finally clear it. If you have to sweep a large auditorium in preparation for an Event the next time, DIVIDE the auditorium into smaller compartments and sweep them one after the other for which you would see the auditorium swept neatly at the end.
No challenge can’t be overcome by the LITTLE BY LITTLE concept. Try it for it works. God bless you all.
#BGIM Bless God It’s Monday
1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY Edition
I would like to express my sincerest Editorial gratitude to all patrons of #BGIM (readers, sharers, doers, critics and the like).
Special Acknowledgement goes to these 5 people for helping #BGIM see the light of its FIRST BIRTHDAY 🎂.
1. Abena Dede Adonu, the most ardent follower of #BGIM who could be asking me of #BGIM even on a Sunday. The days #BGIM was delaying, she would check to know why. In fact all these she has been doing has kept me on the toes.
2. Joseph alias $r¢ aka 3nnkasa, one of those who requested for #BGIM every Monday by 7am during the early stages of #BGIM. It was the strength required to help a seed germinate even in hard, dry soils.
3. My two best friends, Sammy and Jonathan, who always encouraged me when I started #BGIM even with funny jokes all in an attempt to keep me going on.
4. Finally, I would like to salute my Writing and Blogging Mentor & Trainer, Mama 😂😂😂 Jackie Hanson (The Khayil Woman) who gave little, little juicy pieces of advice all through the year.
God bless them all. Without them, I might not have been able to make the about 50 #BGIM Editions so far.
