The Importance of Water

All hail Alphasoars . . .

We shall highlight a few but most profound importance of water we have found. The importance of water cannot be over emphasized. Its importance is what has made it a general commodity with a bold tag - No Man's Enemy.

In few countries, good and clean water has not been at the reach of person because of its scarcity. This could be caused by natural phenomena of environmental pollution. In those places, they drink whatever liquid they could find and at such risk shortening their life span as they invite disease causing organisms into their bodies.
Good and clean water is one which has no taste, has no colour and it’s free of whatever colour. Humans through scientific research have been advised to take larger quantity of water on daily basis. Three areas I have found water useful is what I shall be discussing shortly.

The Only Place to Find God

All Hail Alphasoars . . .

Where is that place we can find God? Because it seems many people are having a difficult time locating it. Let us ride to see if we can get there - God willing. Shall we?

The only place to find God is not in your local church, your pastor books or even your religion. It is in a place much higher and greater than the Bible you read. So many people read the Bible, the get inspired from it and inadvertently commit themselves to the guidelines listed therein.
The Bible is 'too common' and therefore could be used by all and sundry. Whoever gets to a bookshop and demands for a bible will not be denied one because he is not a church goer or put 'properly' 'a Christian'.

The Bible reveals the way - The Word. It is through the Word that we find God. But where exactly do we find God? It is a question we can answer by carefully asking ourselves "Do I know God". Like Paul the Apostle, His main aim was knowing Jesus and not finding him because it is by the knowing that we could then Find Him.
Simply put, I want to meet someone I have not met before. I would need a clear description of whom and how that person is because by that when I come across him or her, I won't just pass by without knowing.

So the Bible, the Church is kind of a road map that guides you to God. But someone is asking me the difference between knowing him and Finding God.

Three Momentous moments in My Life I Will Not Forget in a Hurry

All Hail Alphasoars . . .

Happy new week to you. Today I shall tell you three incidents that happened to me that I may not forget in a hurry.

Car fire incident

It was November 2006 we have just finished the wedding ceremony of my elder brother and were returning to base. Boarded a taxi and was on top speed. I was young and have not been involved in any accident before. I almost slept off because of tiredness but managed to stay awake.

Almost twenty minutes gone into the journey, all we could see was people waving at us to stop the car. Our taxi has caught fire burning seriously at the bonnet and we never knew.
We got to know when we started having smoke inside the car and finally had to stop the taxi. Lo and behold, the car was on fire and we never knew. 
We came out, and did I mention, my mother was in the car as well as one of my elder brothers. Almost a family oh and the devil want to use us that Ember or year ending to do Christmas.
We came out safe and put out the fire, hopped into another taxi and got home safely at around some minutes after eight in the night.

8 Awkward things worshipers do!

All hail Alphasoars . . .

Steadily we will soar, no matter the economic and political brouhahas that we might be witnessing in the country at the moment.
Today I want to talk a little bit about some eight things that are awkwardly awkward to me that worshipers engage in.

Sighing before praying.
I don't know why, but it seems so awkward to me oh. Your prayer leader will just introduce a prayer topic and tell everyone to pray, immediately before the prayer, you will just hear echo of sighs everywhere. Like seriously, who are you sighing for na? The person you are praying to is he the one that put you into any problem you are trying to pray on.

Shouting when praying
Some people will just start shouting like people who are quarrelling with unrepentant conductor. I wonder why it is so. The last time I checked, MY GOD hears even the most silent prayer. So I ask, do you have to shout. Let's say you are talking to your biological father, you are making a request then you start shouting, like seriously, will even listen to you if he doesn't even give you a resounding slap.

Giving offering when message is on especially when Pastor is preaching 
I don't know if it is bad oh, but all I know is that the BIBLE tells me something very clearly in two separate quotations that 1. There is time for everything and 2. let everything be done decently and in order.
So I don’t usually get it when the person is praying and you are going to give offering. Is the offering meant for God or the Pastor?
I think Ecclesiastes has something to say on this. Read chapter five and the first verse. It says something like, "Walk prudently when you go into the house of God; and draw near to hear rather than to give the sacrifice of fools, for they do not know that they do evil".

How to Cure Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)

Today I shall talk about Attention Deficit Disorder hereinafter referred to as ADD. What it is and how to most probably cure the disorder. Attention Deficit Disorder is a state of disorderliness in management of engagements. It happens when one is not able to totally finish any task he undertakes.
There are many successful people out there and if you take time to study their past history, you’ll discover that one thing is evident in their success story – they undertook many failed businesses. At the end of such discovery, we hail them for that, having gone into several business ventures and failed.

Some of these person could have made it in the first business pursuit they entered but they could not because they set a time-frame for their success and when it seems their time has elapsed they back out and pursue other forms of enterprise. What happens to sticking around till you make it? It might be longer than the time you have set but no, you want it quicker and this eventually leads you to having Attention Deficit Disorder. When this happens to you, it means that you have lost #focus. 

What it (ADD) entails;
The individual does things haphazardly and undertakes multiple engagements and tasks without completing any.

Short Story: Wahala X Palava

All hail Alphasoars . . .

Let us tell a short story today. Read below!
Audu has not been himself lately. He has lost his job and the signals from his home drags him back every time he was about to retire to his house after each unfruitful day’s adventure. For the very past few weeks, his chain of meetings had yielded nothing new to him except for frustrations and ill lucks.
His wife, Halimattu, has also had her own fair share of the forgoing and ongoing frustrations. In fact, the previous two nights, they had gone in without food due to harsh decision by her neighbour who sells food stuffs but refused to lend her items to prepare for the evening meal pending Audu's return from his journeys.

Chief Okanta has been faithful in advising Audu about how to go through life happy, lively and free but had never giving him any financial assistance. Audu remembers him and decided to try his luck today. He already knew full well of what Okanta always offers - unending advise and counseling.

"I have heard you perfectly Audu. Our relationship has lasted these past years, and cannot be despised no matter what. I won't bore you with another series of counseling since your disposition shows that of a dying hungry man in front of a hungry lion". Chief Okanta said after listening to Audu's tales.

"Oka, please just help me" Audu pleaded.

"Just so simple a task, Audu and I shall shower you with all you'll want in riches." Okanta started, "I shall give you enough help as I could but are you ready to do just a simple thing for me?"

"Anything, Chief"

"Alright, I shall give you financial assistance based on the number of wealthy people you know and have made friends with"

"Chief, you are sounding childish a bit, am dying already and you know it"

Airtel: Theft in the Morning!

All hail Alphasoars . . .

Our amiable President is back into the country. He gave some minutes speech earlier today where he addressed the nation on mostly National security and which has sparked outrage and fury from the opposition. They expected him to tell the country how he will turn the polity overnight but for crying out loud Baba went for medical treatment, he wasn't attending Harvard Business School or some seminar of some sort. Give him time. At least twenty more months, lols: D.

I talked about telecommunication networks in this post. But today I have to call out one. Every team wearing red has something in common as it is that atom of instability.
Manchester United FC has kept their red jersey intact but since last two seasons, they have been dancing around the premier league table, like, first today, tomorrow sixth and next the bottom of the table. But we keep praying for them so that the legacy Sir Alex Ferguson left them won't be dead and forgotten in a rush.
