God Hears Your Prayers

Prayer is said to be a means of pouring out our hearts to God. This is true but its more than that; it does not only involve telling God our heart desires but also listening to him.
Every culture has a concept of prayer; But not every culture believes that God will hear your prayers. Some think that you have to be a very good person to be heard by God. Others think that you have to say certain prayers with certain words for God to hear. So what is the truth? The Bible says you are a child of God by your faith in Jesus, and God hears your prayers. Isaiah 30:19 says, “How gracious He will be when you cry for help! As soon as He hears, He will answer you.” Have you ever seen a mother rushing to her crying baby? Even though the baby can’t express himself clearly, his mother cares so much to help because of her great love. That’s a picture of God’s concern for you, His child, when you pray to Him.
The God of the Whole Universe Hears Your Prayers
But you have to realize how important it is that the God of the whole universe hears your prayers. This isn’t like talking about your problems to your best friend who can’t do anything to help. Imagine you worked for a huge company. Whenever most people had a problem, they had to go through the line of authority and figure it out themselves. But you are the child of the president of the company, so you can go straight to your dad, the person in charge, who loves you and wants to help you. That’s a small picture of your special relationship with God, the boss of the whole universe and your heavenly Father. Jesus said, “In that day you will no longer ask me anything. Very truly I tell you, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name” (John 16:23). So do not hesitate to come to God
with your problems and concerns. He loves you more than you understand and wants you to ask Him for help. Take a moment right now to talk with Him and thank Him for hearing you.
out to God.
 Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

Thank God for hearing and caring about your every prayer. Talk to Him about something that is bothering you and ask Him to help you.

Earlier today, I asked friends on my Whatsapp time-line the difference between a Hustler and an Entrepreneur. Of course, there was a plethora of answers as different people gave very distinct meanings in response. What surprised me the most was that no two people gave the same answer. Everyone had a distinct point of view.
However, for the sake of clarity and simplicity I decided to curate most of the responses as well as my personal observations into an article.
First and foremost, a Hustler is someone who "make strenuous efforts to obtain" money or profit from different areas or businesses engagements. An entrepreneur however is one who starts a business (or businesses), manages it to produce tangible value and make profit from it. 
You see, it's easy to assume there's not much difference between the two personalities but there are. 
While Kemi, a LASU Undergraduate perceives the difference in the freedom an Entrepreneur enjoys compared to a Hustler, Success, a Bl…

Personal Growth 101

The first time many of us heard the word 'growth' was most likely in basic school where it was described as one of the characteristics of living things. Thereafter, it seemed the word almost disappeared from our vocabularies. 
What is growth anyway? Growth is simply the process you go through to become your true and best self. It is the season between birth and fulfilment. This short piece, of course, can't explain everything about growth but it'll suffice to give you a head-start and set you on the never-ending  journey of personal growth. 
First, we need to understand that life is really all about growth. A man once said "Development of character is the main business of life". How true! The essence of our existence is that we keep growing into our true and best selves.  
It is also important that we realize that growth is intentional. Wee don't grow by simply living, by accident or chance. Growth is intentional. Some erroneously believe we grow automat…

Sharpen your Axe: How Personal Development Can Simplify Your Life

"If I had six hour to chop down a tree, I'd spend the first four hours sharpening the axe." - Abraham Lincoln
An axe is a cutting tool that consists of a heavy edged head fixed to a handle with with the edge parallel to the handle that is used especially for felling trees and chopping wood (Merriam Webster Dictionary). The axe is considered one of the most effective traditional tools for cutting trees. To effectively carry out this duty for which it is made, the edge of the axe must be well sharpened so it could cut through the wood with ease. 
In this context, your axe is the potential, gifts, talents and resources available to you as an individual. Your axe is the tool available to you to solve any problem. This could be your degrees, talents, inherent potential, knowledge or any other thing at your disposal. 
"If the ax is dull,  And one does not sharpen the edge, Then he must use more strength;  But wisdom brings success" - Ecclesiastes 10:10 An axe, when it…
