I smell LOVE in the air. Just a little something for you guys to go through to make sure your VALENTINE’S DAY is as LOVELY as ever. Remember to share the LOVE with everyone.

IMG_2215On the 2nd of Feb. 2016, Mr. Innocent lost the battle with his kidneys which had a few weeks earlier, failed him. Just the Saturday before, he had watched his favorite team draw blanks with an average Southampton soccer side. Arsenal had failed him for over a decade, so what was one more time?

Yeah, I know they disappointed you, they failed to meet up to the pedestal you had placed them on, and well you placed them there. Wash your hands and move on, you’ve got your Destiny in your hands. As it’s so often said, the bigger the Destiny being held, the smaller the allotted space on your hands to hold grudges.

Finding that delicate balance between ‘SHE WOULD NEVER DO IT” and “I NEVER EXPECTED THAT FROM HER” requires factoring in – even our bodies could fail us, (‘could’ not ‘would’) as the common denominator.

I’m not writing this to discourage you from trusting or trusting easily, far from it. I’m telling you to wholeheartedly embrace the notion that people will at some point fail you or disappoint your expectations of them, it’s your reactions to these failures that projects you to a better place. Mr. Innocent is in a better place now, what kidney failure? Hopefully, he watches the open sky bus parade when Arsenal wins the 2016 English Premier League.

I’m penning this in the hope that it springs a cadre of strong reactions in your nadirs of disappointments, LOVE being the strongest reaction of them all.


Here’s what 1 Corinthians 13:5-7 says about love “It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongsLove does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

In three words, the 8th verse absolutely rounds in up in the most audience thrilling conclusions of all time – LOVE NEVER FAILS!

It’s simple, filter your daily relationships, decision making and utterances with a sieve of Godly love and you’d never fail. With that wall of love built up, how then can people fail you?!
