Take 5 is a group that started on the Campus of Ahmadu Bello University some few years ago, I can say that God brought these young men and women together and gave them a mission to ‘Minister in melody’, that’s why if you have been in any of their ministrations you will not help but be dazzled with the way the raise worship with sweet melody and great composition.
The “Imela” crooners are at it again, this time around with “Kileoleshe” which was produced by 2 Blaze.
“Kileoleshe” simply asks the question “is there anything God cannot do?” And obviously we know the answer, there’s nothing that our God cannot do.
The mind is a complex cognitive faculty that enables consciousness, thinking, reasoning, perception and judgment. It works with the physical senses to receive information of what happens in our natural world.
It’s a re-creative faculty which responds to thoughts and desires, when these thoughts become regular it somehow begins to materialise in the physical, that is why wise men have said “dominant thoughts rule the day” and “as a man thinks, so is he”. Solomon admonished us to guard our hearts with all diligence for out of it are the issues of life, that is to infer that we are a sum total product of what goes on in our minds.
Every act we partake in, whether good or bad starts from a thought in the mind, so as people who aspire for greatness, we should watch our thoughts and thought pattern which is greatly influenced by what we read, watch and hear, this will help inspire thoughts of positive self esteem and self worth and belief that we can do whatever we want to do through God who gives us strength. The Bible gives us a line of thought which is to think of things that are true, things that are honourable, things that are pure, thinking on these changes our perspective and makes us better equipped to respond to life challenges the way God expects us to.
As said earlier, the mind interacts with our physical world through our senses, so keeping positive interactions and meditating on the Word of God will help steer of our lives towards the God side which will improve our general outlook of life.
There has being a drastic shift in the way the world is been run such that ideologies that were once acceptable are now out of style or virtually non-applicable in our present day world. We live in an era of were there has been strides and innovations in various areas that affect the livelihood of every human, as such it is necessary for every young man (or woman alike) to define themselves, their live goals and what happens to them as a result of such definitions. This led to outlining twenty things that we young people should be able to define about us and also things we should know before we leave the youthful age.
Below is an outline:
1. Discover yourself
2. Learn to use your gifts and abilities to solve your problem
3. You must have caught an idea on how to make money
4. You must have known the definition of love
5. You must have read at least twenty books
6. You should have a pastor
7. You should be known for something
8. You should have a mentor
9. You must learn how to say “I’m sorry”
10. You must have conquered procrastination
11. You should be free to use your mind
12. You should have a bank account
13. You should have an investment
14. You must have developed stability of character
15. You should be able to choose your friends
16. You should have learnt professional dining etiquette
17. You should be able to define your vision
18. You should have an idea or be able to drive
19. You must have the capacity to feed someone else
20. You must be BORN AGAIN
These will be discussed in details in subsequent posts, so keep your mind active and meditate on these.
