Dreams Come True – Part I

Do you have a dream?.Life is full of challenges and so everyone must have dreams to unlock every door shut in his/her life. Dreams have to be our highest lofty aims for a successful  future.

When we talk about dreams in life, it either refers to setting up lofty aims for a better future or the kind of dream which happens to be illusional  scenes that comes into our lives whiles asleep.They are sometimes so vivid that you might think it is real.It is only when you wake up that you will know it is unreal, but that very unreal dream could become real.It is often associated with the spiritual realm.It has meanings that affects our physical lives.Both of these dreams come true, depending on certain factors.

In this very post,I will talk about dreams as goals in life and talk about dreams that appears to us when we are asleep later in part 2.Anyways here is what you should know about dreams pertaining to the spiritual realm.It is a plausible idea for everyone to have dreams and work toward it.When we talk about dreams we must remember the sayings of Martin Luther King Junior, he said “I have a dream”.Yes he was having a dream, a dream for future liberation from oppression. Every one has to dream for a better future, dream big as the ocean and work tirelessly to achieve it.If your dreams are not scaring you enough,it means you are not dreaming big.

A life without dreams or vision is useless,but I believe everyone reading this post has dreams. And as you dream to achieve something, set the day,month, year you want to achieve your goal or let your dreams come true. It might be your dream to marry  next year,buy a car next year,get your master’s degree and so on and so forth. dream and work toward it and surely your dreams will materialize. If your dream fails as planned, never give up,keep on dreaming big and your perseverance will help you see your dreams come true.

There is nothing sweeter than dreaming big and seeing it come true right in front of your eyes. I know you have a dream just like what Martin Luther King said. If you have future dreams and you become reluctant to work toward it,it will never materialise.In that case that wouldn’t be a dream but instead, a fantasy. Work hard and see your dreams come true. This is a piece of inspiration for you today. Watch out for dreams come true part 2.

3 Reasons Why Pets Are A Blessing To Us

Pets are sometimes more than friends and families. They could do the unbelievable to make our lives happy in many ways.God’s creation is simply amazing and we should appreciate it

Home pets are blessings to us in life

I believe anyone who has pets or loves pets will like this post.Yes!,I dedicate this post to you.I have been staying with pets(cats &dogs) for long and I know how adorable they are.So today,I would like us to consider why God created these domestic animals for us.

They existed before us,I mean God created animals before human beings.Since creation, the coördination between  pets and human beings has been friendly and interesting.In this very post I will mainly talk about cats and dogs because they are the most popular pets in many houses today.However, some people go to the extreme of domesticating wild animals like tigers,lions,crocs. etc. as pets.That is a risky kind of game,taming wild animals and staying with them in the house is very risky.I wouldn’t do that. Let me go with my cats and dogs.Recently, while  I was watching television, I saw the cat ranked as the most extreme killer animal in the world, and that is above lions and all the  other wild animals you could name of.Simply because the cat kills its preys at a higher rate than all other predators.

How many pets do you have?,do you like them?,do they play any significant roles in your life?.Birds for instance teach us a lot of lessons in life Now below are some of the amazing moments pets take us through in life.

 1. Friendliness:
Some  pets are more than human friends, they will play with you,make you smile every second to forget about your loneliness or life problems. Dogs for instance are smart enough to understand basic instructions from humans. They can play soccer with you in the field,they can jog with you, they can go hunting with you and do a lot of things to spice your day.They are a kind of pets that can be your best companion if you have no friends.Cats on the other hand sometimes behave  like human beings and can give you amazing stunts anywhere, they can make you laugh till you crack your ribs.Nothing is beautiful than having these two kinds of pets in the house.

 2. Comforts:
Pets like cats and dogs,are able to give  a lot of comforts,they understand human feelings and actions.There was a story I read a few months ago;Whenever the man becomes sad,his dog notices it and do you know how his dog comforts him?.The dog will show his love and condolences to his owner by picking old socks to his owner. Wow!,that’s funny and interesting. The dog believes, gifting his owner socks will cheer him up.They can also lie on your lap,whip the tail and do a lot of signs to cheer you up.They can even tease you to get into action by playing with them to forget about your anxieties or pains.

3.Protection:
When you have dogs as pets in your house, you need not to worry much about your security. They can  sound alarm of intruders in your house by barking aggressively.As for security dogs working with the police, they are exceptional.

They are really good in helping to fight against people who deal in illegal stuffs.There is a very heart-touching story about a faithful dog which I want to share with you now.This dog was a family pet,he was very playful and friendly. One day his owner and wife left home leaving behind a new-born baby. The dog had always been caring by showing good behaviours so he was a trustworthy dog to his owner.Whiles this dog was looking after the new-born baby,a fox appeared from nowhere to eat up the baby.But the family dog fought it bravely for a couple of minutes and killed that savage-looking fox,dragged it to the backyard.

When the family returned, the dog wiggled his tail in excitement to meet his owner, but the owner became furious upon seeing blood stains on the cloths covering the baby and the jaws and body of the dog,thinking his trusted home pet has eaten up his baby.Without patience he pulled his gun and shot the dog.After uncovering the baby,he found out that the baby had no single scratch on his body.He became alarmed with intense grieve for allowing his impatience kill his lovely family pet.

After tracing the blood stains to the backyard, he found the dead fox.He had made a very big mistake and it was too late so to honor his brave home pet he gave him a befitting  burial.

In summary, pets are God-given gifts to help us in many ways so we must treat them very well.They are good friends and can protect us in many ways.Although they don’t have wisdom but they can do certain important tasks in our house. I have reared cats and dogs only,that is why I have talked much about them,the pet I want to have next is parrot, :-).Do you have any pets?,feel free to share your thoughts in the comments box.

How Your  Dress Code Defines Your Character

Your dressing has a lot to say about you to people, and the kind of that message can’t me misinterpreted; it is obvious, so everyone should mind  his/her dressing.

How your dress code defines your character in life
How your dress code defines your character in life

When we are born into this world,our parents or families first groom us,they teach us how to dress properly in the house,school,church before we even grow. The family has always being the immediate environment to imbibe moral principles or good manners into us.Here is where character formation or lifestyle begins.The school then polishes the way we should dress and sets us into the life of jobs and social integration.

There are many ways one can dress to attend different occasions and every dress code sends messages to people about you.Whether you like casual clothes or fashionable clothes it depends on how you wear it to send a particular message to those around you.The total appealing appearance of your personality speaks louder to people about you than your own self.People believe,the first thing to notice about someone’s personality or character is the kind of shoes that very person would be wearing.

In life,when you apply for jobs and you are called for interviews, your dress code also has a lot of influences on you.It sends indirect message about your personality and the level of your professionalism to the interviewer.If you dress shabbily, you will likely lose a job that you quality 100%.Your personal grooming can’t be ignored in life. We see many people around us,some look fashionable, some look very casual and some too are indecent. The kind of dress codes send all these kinds of messages to people.

For a Christian, you are always expected to refrain from worldly dressing,instead dress modestly, as the Bible says your beauty shouldn’t come from outside but instead it should come from within you.The bible actually covers all the aspects of life,it has good moral lessons for everyone,even those who are not Christians.God sees the beauty in you and becomes much pleased with you.Don’t dress heavily like a harlot or a prostitute to draw attention,don’t idolize your jewelries nor your expensive clothes nor fragrance. Let your beauty come from within and look very simple with your dressing code.Don’t look too hard on yourself looking for expensive clothes even if you can’t afford. I don’t mean you should not wear expensive clothes. What I’m saying here is; as a Christian you should not let the beauties of life distract you from God.Dont let it overshadow the love you have for God.The carnally minded is always chasing world pleasures and the beauties in life.As a Christian you don’t have ti act like them.

Dressing in a particular way is a choice, so if you find someone looking trendy always and that is not your preference, don’t feel outmoded, maybe you love to be casual or simple just like me,that is your preference so keep it up.But make sure you look decent always. Your lifestyle or dressing speaks a lot about you.Don’t fight to get expensive clothes or jewelries to impress anyone my friend; life is not a competition so live it simple and you will always be happy with yourself, your friends,families, coworkers and everyone who gets close to you will admire you.For we came to this world with our bare hands and surely we will go back to the dust with our bare hands.All the expensive clothes and jewelries will be left behind. However, as you live you can enjoy the fruits of your labour but don’t forget your God,let your inner beauty be greater than your outer beauty. Understand me here that I don’t hate looking beautiful in expensive clothes.Christmas is just around the corner and I know many of you would be going on shopping.

Finally, know what kind of dressing best suits you and never imitate what others are adoring themselves with.Let your dressing always be decent to send good messages to people around you.Your dressing alone can give you great jobs and open great opportunities for you in life.

"…And The Truth Will Make You Free"(John 8:32).

The truth has the power to unlock all that is hidden in darkness. Be truthful in life and all the plans of your enemies against you will not materialize.

And The Truth Shall Set You Free in Life
And The Truth Shall Set You Free

It is a beautiful Sunday and I hope all readers of African Paradise World are doing good by the grace of God.He who abides in the truth rejoices in the Lord always.Remember to avoid lies to allow God get close to you and manifest himself in all aspect of your life. As a Christian, you have to know
why it is not good to tell lies
.

The truth hurts but it does us good,maybe not now but someday.This message is a quick reminder to all Christians and anyone who believes in God and his son Jesus Christ to be truthful in life for there is blessings awaiting all those who live in truth. Jesus is the way,the truth and life so we must follow his footsteps.

“But the one who practices the truth comes to the light, so it maybe plainly evident that his deeds have been done in God”(John 3:21).

When you speak the truth,you will likely get enemies because the wicked doesn’t like the truth,because he belongs to the devil who is the father of all lies.When you say the truth and you find yourself in trouble don’t worry,just pray and Jesus(truth) will set you free.Standing firm in truth should be one of the hallmarks of all Christians. Stay blessed.

Abuse Of Power – Suppression In Life

Have you ever been mistreated in life because of your lower class level?. Worry not, for  your reward will come from above.The Oppressor will see you rise like the morning sun and feel ashamed.

Suppression and bullying in life is not good
Suppression and bullying in life degrades our generation

Life has it that, we can never be equal so there are rulers and salves,the privileged and less privileged,the stronger and the weak, employer and employee, the rich and the poor. Together they make one community or one world.The disparity between these class of people sometimes  result in oppression and exploitations.

Each and every one of us will certainly fall within one of these classes of people but in this very post, I will like to highlight and talk about some of the mistreatment the less privileged,slaves,and employees go through in life.How would you feel if your employer is very hard on you and never gives you space to breath?, how would you feel if your master overuse you because you are his slave?,how would you feel if the privileged exploits you because you less privileged?. The feeling is a very awkward one,but here is the case you are subjected to his rulership.You don’t have a say and you can’t negotiate for your welfare or  anything better.

There is this very political quote that says “power corrupt but absolute power corrupt absolutely”.People who show tyrannical attitudes are known as wicked men and many people don’t like them.They infringe on people’s rights without a second thought. Life seems unfair to the oppressed, his wishes are to break free from bondage but that happens to be a mere dream,nothing is not changing and nothing has changed.So is this how life should treat some of our fellow humans?.Modern day slavery has taken in many forms that are not seen by many people because it has been modernised. The rights of women are often restricted, children are forced into hard labour, girls are prostituted against their will.Suppression is killing the innocents. It is my concern to raise awareness about the plights of the less privileged in our societies.You too have a role to play to end this kind of discrimination. Rich men are always getting richer and poor men are also getting poorer. In view of this the rich man will never befriend a poor man,instead he will befriend his fellow rich man.The disparity becomes wider now and then, I and you have a role to play to abridge that gap to ensure respect for humanity,tolerance for humanity and equality among humanity.

If you are an employer, slave master, or a privileged man,give respect to your subordinate, treat your slaves fairly good and respect them as humans.We all want to make the world a better place.A world free of  suppression and intolerance. I hate to see people exploit the less privileged. Some people are hard to change because of their character traits, and the only thing you can do is to pray for them for God to help them change for better interpersonal relationships.The bible says,even if you are a slave, work hard all the time, not only when your master is at sight for the Lord has a special reward for you. One love,one world.
