THE CONFIDENT WOMAN DEVOTIONAL: WHEN YOU FEEL AFRAID


TEXT: Ezra 3:3-4

Just because ordinary people take steps to accomplish extraordinary things does not mean that they do not feel fear. I believe the Old Testament hero Esther felt fear when she was asked to leave her familiar, comfortable life and enter the king's harem so she could be used by God to save her nation. I believe Joshua felt fear when, after Moses died, he was given the job of taking the Israelites into the Promised Land. I know I had fear when God called me to quit my job and prepare for ministry. I still remember my knees shaking and my legs feeling so weak that I thought I would fall down. I remember the fear I felt then, but it frightens me more now to think of how my life would have turned out had I not faced the fear and pressed forward to do God's will.

Fear does not mean you are a coward. It only means that you need to be willing to feel the fear and do what you need to do anyway.

Pray: Lord, thank You for the many examples in Your Word of individuals who stepped forward in faith despite their fears. Help me to do the same. Amen.

From the book The Confident Woman Devotional by Joyce Meyer.

CHOIR MEMBER KIDNAPPED BABY @ RCCG ABUJA


Oluwatoniloba David Obafemi was kidnapped by Comfort Amos on Sunday, September 23, 2012 at RCCG, Central Parish, Aminu Kano Crescent, Wuse II, Abuja.
Comfort Amos is a member of the church choir where Timothy Taiwo Obafemi (Toni's Father) is the Deputy HOD of the choir. Comfort Amos unusually sat where the nursing mothers sat in church on Sunday and particularly sat beside Mariah Toyin Obafemi (Toni's mother), who is also a Sunday School teacher.
Comfort carried and played with Toniloba and after some minutes requested that she wanted to go give her house-help money for 'offering' in the children's church. She left with Toniloba.

After some minutes, Toyin got unsettled and decided to go look for Comfort. All efforts to track Comfort has since proven abortive.
Wole Shonibare, a church member called Comfort and she confirmed she was in Jabi Park and when she was advised to return the baby, she snapped back at him that she will return the baby. All efforts to speak with Comfort after that have been fruitless. Toni is 9months old while Comfort is 40/41 years old.
She was last tracked to Shendam, Plateau State.

WOMAN’S PREGNANCY DISAPPEARED AFTER 9 MONTHS

For 9 solid months, she was carrying a baby in her womb. Nurses and doctors told her that everything was fine every time she would go for check up. She would even feel the baby kicking right inside her tummy. But when she was due for labour nothing came out!
How strange.

This was the case for two Guruve women who come from Chief Bepura area in Chitauro and Matirira villages respectively in
Zimbabwe.
They were heavily pregnant for 9 months. They never miscarried but their pregnancies just disappeared at the time of going for labour. Their ordeal has cultivated so much terror and fear amongst villagers of this area, mainly amongst women.
Keresina Mushonyi (37) of Chitauro village, and Calistar Matirira (20) of Matirira village, who were both pregnant got the shock of their lives after their pregnancies mysteriously disappeared on the very last minute.
Mushoni, who is married to Richard Madhuro (47), said she just realised a few weeks ago that she was no longer pregnant. She said three months after falling pregnant, she went to Mudindo clinic in Bepura where she registered. She was expecting her fifth child and every month nurses would assure her that all was well.

HOW TO FIND MR RIGHT


So many of the women I meet in their 30s who are successful, interesting and accomplished find themselves alone. They have friends. They have social skills and they are desirable. But the whole dating drama has them in a tizzy. Often their primary strategies for meeting potential mates includes: internet dating, going to parties and bars with friends or getting fixed up with people who come recommended, but so often these attempts end with high expectations and disappointment. Their collective refrain seems to be, "I'll never meet Mr.Right!".
We present to you 10 Tips for Finding Mr. Right:

GET A LIFE
The most important thing is to be Ms. Right yourself. Finding the right man is not going to change you into a better person than you already are. If you are lazy and self-centered, finding a generous hard working fellow is not going to transform you. If you are boring and a one-dimensional person, finding an intellectually challenging man is not going to change who you are. Learn how to be interesting, kind, caring, and unselfish. Model yourself after women you admire. Work hard at changing your character defects. Become more well rounded. Complete your education. Get a hobby. Volunteer and expose yourself to people who are less-fortunate than you are. Travel abroad. Learn some humility by volunteering to serve others. Take a listening class. Get some counseling if you need to learn to be assertive or how to share your feelings. If you have some childhood traumas deal with them now, with someone who can give you professional help. Learn to be happy with yourself, first. No man, no matter how right is going to make you happy. You will only be happy in your new relationship if you are happy inside first.

TOP10MICS CONCERT SLATED FOR NOVEMBER 30 @ EKO HOTEL



The organisers of the most talked about musical concert of last year, TOP10MICS, Koga Studios have taken off form where they left it as they bring the second edition of the highly publicized concert again this year but this time, to the exquisite Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The event of last year was a huge success as it featured top notch entertainers in their respective genres of music such as the African Queen Crooner, 2face Idibia, Trybesmen Chief Executive, Eldee Tha Don, EME Recording Artiste, Wizkid, Chocolate City Act, MI, P Square, Mocheedah, Afrobeat Maestro, Femi Kuti, Port Harcourt’s First Son, Duncan Mighty, Afro Juju Exponent, Sir Shina Peters and Omo Rapala Himself, Abass Akande Obesere. The event held at the famous Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS) in the heart of Lagos Island brought many youths and adults together in their numbers. The question which is on many people’ lips that the organisers are not prepared to answer now is “which artistes would make the event at Eko Hotel this year?”. Names like Dbanj, Davido, Wande Coal, Dr Sid, Chuddy K are being mooted in some quarters while some are even speculating if some of the acts that performed last year would stage a return, but time will tell.
This year’s event promises to be fun and the organisers have decided to add new twists to the concert by bringing top music acts for the Friday, November 30, 2012 concert but they have decided to keep mum on the artistes billed to perform for now but the list of the artistes would be revealed by end of the month. Regular concert tickets will be sold at designated stores and tables would also be sold for the concert.
