#BGIM on Christmas Day.

Hurray. It’s Christmas!!! The Saviour is born. He is Christ, the Lord. The reason for the season.

Merry Christmas to all #BGIM patrons and readers. God Bless You All.

BGIM- SERVE

This week’s #BGIM (Bless God It’s Monday) is centred on what the Saviour came to do as well.

For even the Son of Man came not to be served but TO SERVE, and give His life as a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45 ESV)

Most of us tend to akin service or serving to slaves, servants, subordinates and lowly people. But today #BGIM beseechs us all to serve in whatever capacity we find ourselves for service has always proven to be an approved route to greatness.

Look around you. Look for all the great people around you and go and check their background. You will see that they were and are still people of service. Serving society with one solution or the other. Some for free, some for a reduced cost or the full cost. The most important thing is that people like Kwame Despite (Despite Group Ltd) and Joseph Siaw Agyapong of Zoomlion served society with one solution or the other for which they have now burst forth into greatness.

Those who serve: be it serving food and drinks at an event; serving on various committees at their workplaces, church, mosque, associations; serving in various capacities as leaders of little or large groups, secretaries, organisers and even WhatsApp Group Administrators are surely churning out their skills. They are developing and harnessing those skills unconsciously. And just as they hone those skills, they are preparing themselves for that great door/ opportunity that would pop up when others least expected. And that’s when they will shine through to their life of greatness.

And just as my favourite preacher, Lady Rev. Adelaide Heward-Mills says those who serve will always get privileges that those who do not serve might never get, might have to pay to get or even have to struggle to get. She always says that those who serve drinking water to ministers at their church are the ones who are assured of coming into close contact with preachers like Benny Hinn and T. D. Jakes when they come to Ghana. And the most blessed of all things is when the preachers call out all of these serving kind after close of church to pray for them, impart them and bless them.
SERVE!!!

#BGIM: Bless God It’s Monday- ALWAYS HAVE A LOT IN STOCK

#BGIM- Bless God It’s Monday
ALWAYS HAVE A LOT IN STOCK

We bless God for another Monday where He is ready to pour out His blessings upon us as we work diligently with our hands. (Deuteronomy 28:12)

#BGIM- Always Have A Lot in Stock

It’s said that you don’t know when your breakthrough moment would come unless it comes itself. And when that moment comes, my brother would you prepared? My sister, would be ready to grab the opportunity by the neck with both hands?

The Bible says in the Book of Proverbs that _”if you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is weak “_. At the most crucial time, when you need to have a lot of strength in stock, when you don’t have a lot in stock, you will lose and miss things on this journey of success and greatness.

Last week at school, two incidents happened which buttressed the need to have a lot in stock.

In the Examination and Printing Committee, we usually buy our materials in bulk a week or two to exams. This year after planning to buy a new printer, we bought extra toners for our old and new printer to be bought. Sadly, for us when our printer came, our toner could not match the new model of HP Printer. We started scratching our heads because we knew the manufactured toner in the printer would not be able to last us for the VOLUMINOUS printing and photocopying tasks. But guess what, the extra toners we had for our old printer saved us the disgrace and stress.

Sadly, in our second incident, we got short on official paper on the last day of exams ie. the very final paper. Eish!!! We are dead oo…I still couldn’t understand how come the Official Papers were not enough for the whole school for the first time ever.

Come and see us telling students to answer some of their answers on the question paper; cutting half sheets of used written exams scripts; looking under tables for any official paper that might have been left there a long time ago; looking into last terms remaining materials and so on and so forth till every child got at least a half sheet .i.e. 1-page official paper to write on.

You would say this is not a thing to sweat over. You people should have gone to buy a new roll of paper. Do you know how far it would have taken us to get some? And even if we got some quickly, I always say that on a small scale, the effects of lapses are not as devastating as on a large scale.

If you want to chalk great strides and great successes in life, then please ALWAYS HAVE A LOT IN STOCK

#BGIM: Bless God It’s Monday- BUY YOURSELF TIME!!!

#BGIM- Bless God It’s Monday
BUY YOURSELF TIME

We bless God for another Monday such as this where we would work throughout the whole week diligently and see the goodness and blessings of God upon our lives. (Deuteronomy 28:12)

*#BGIM- BUY YOURSELF TIME*

Time and Tide waits for no man. Time is a precious commodity which when lost cannot be regained/ retrieved. But time is needed in huge quantities by individuals such that the 24 hours God gave us never seems to be enough.

What we do in the 24 hours in a day would tell whether we are prospering, productive progressing or retrogressing in life. Hence, everyone wants to make maximum use of his or her time whilst our responsibilities and tasks always continue to increase.

So the question is, how do we marry increasing responsibilities with the same 24 hour time frame whilst aiming at efficiency and productivity.

BUY YOURSELF TIME!!!

You ask how???!!!
Wake up early; go to work early; settle down quickly and start planning for much of the day; do assignments or tasks that can be done before work commences; quickly work on all your backlog of unfinished tasks from the previous days; stay over where necessary to finish up certain tasks that require urgent attention. Do everything within your power to squeeze little little times for yourself so that you can accomplish most or all of your tasks in a day.

A worker who completes his/her task on time and effectively with good productivity elements and traits is surely due for the next increase in renumeration or promotion.

Have you seen how the mothers buy themselves time? On a Saturday morning where a mother needs to wash the clothes, cook, clean the house and sometimes iron the church attire for the next day church service, then you would see how mothers are smart in buying time for themselves.

At dawn, she soaks the clothes in water as she starts to cut the vegetables and co. for her stew/soup and food. When the food is now on fire, she goes to start her washing. After her first batch of washing, she goes to check the food on fire and quickly sweeps the rooms. She comes to continue washing still with her eye on the food to prevent it from been burnt. After a while, she comes to remove the food from fire, then goes to iron the dresses, followed by getting the mopping bucket and water ready. After going to do her last batch of washing, she comes back to mop all the house before finally going to dry all her clothes on the line. WOOOOWWW!!! Clap for mothers. 👏👏👏👏👏.
And don’t be surprised to see this mother go to a Saturday event like a wedding at 10am oo…

You have to buy time for yourself. Squeeze the little little times at your disposal including the time you spend commuting in traffic and learn to marry ‘marriable’ activities together. BUY YOURSELF TIME!!!
