God’s G-spot!

Last year about this time, I was prepping myself to leave advertising. I was tired of the routine with our biggest client. I was sure that my next move would be to run my own gig…and then I got an offer to be Creative Director at a lesser-known agency. I just couldn’t refuse that offer. Not because of the money, but the challenge. I find challenges so seductive!

I bombed my BECE French because instead of just submitting the simple ‘My Self’ composition like everyone was doing, I cancelled it out and wrote the much more difficult ‘passe compose’ one that hardly anyone touched. I still haven’t learnt.

So I took this offer. Given my years in advertising, it was at least four years sooner than those openings normally come. I suspended my ‘going solo’ plans and bit. The shoes I stepped in were big European ones. It was ridiculously daunting. During introductions, all the clients commented in different ways about how young I look. They were multinational brands with multinational expectations and there was this kponyoor me.

I’d read somewhere that God’s not moved by your tears and logic when you pray. It’s not about the tongues or the ‘Remember whens…’ it’s about the honour. Is He going to get the honor? Is the integrity of the name of Jesus at stake? Quick, He takes the issue personal. When we find a genuine way to connect a request to God’s honour, when the end game of the thing we crave is to bring God glory, He takes it really personal.

So anyway, I said ‘Father, I know you gave me this opportunity because many times I’d asked you to cause to happen in a few years things that normally take a decade, and now that you’ve done it, don’t shy yourself. I tell the whole world you’re my source, so if yawa paes for me, it’s bigger yawa for you. I beg you, guide me paaaah, because by myself, I kent. I just kent. It wont w)ck. Lol.

It’s not been a walk in the park fam, but I’m writing to tell you God’s faithful. He’s taught me to do in days tasks I didn’t think was possible to complete in weeks. I’ve always dreaded being the kind of person whose blessing took him away from his maker. So I dreaded that the demanding nature of this job and the other things he blessed me with this year would keep me from him and from talking to you like this…which excites Him by the way. And that’s why this December, Ewuraesi, Tele and I are planning this intimate hang out for 50 people who really want to hang out with us.

I have failed a few times and haven’t been as punctual in posting as I should be, but you’ve been awesome! And he’s been kind.

Last Friday I got word that I’d won my 4th major pitch this year. These are four big pitches…one of them required pitching in Abidjan and against bigger better known agencies. My favorite one was NESCAFE Africa; it was a David and Goliath story. In my industry, you’re respected not because of who your father is or how many degrees you have. When it comes to it, how able are you to sway clients and come up with exciting ideas? The best way to shut the naysayers up is to continue to shine and win.

It’s so strange to me when people relegate God to Sunday church or the secrecy of a bedroom. He’s just as God in management meetings and in the office. God taught me on the job. Sometimes I speak up in meetings that I should have been intimidated in, those meetings that could retire you prematurely if common sense fails you…and I shock myself.

You know me, I’m not one to seek your fans…I’m doing this because I promised God all the honour, and here’s me giving it. In giving God the honour due Him, we demystify success. We get people to realize that God’s not this weakling who only comes through in the afterlife…He’s just as vim-licious now now now.

Tele has his own testimony…ask him about her.

I’m not ashamed to talk about where my strength comes from; if you wont listen because this God thing is some way, you’ll listen because of the phenomenal things you admire me for. Look at that record shattering basketball player, the two time MVP; Stephen Curry, look at Usain Bolt. Look at Simone Biles and their public display of affection for God. Don’t be fooled, there is an army rising up, an army of incredible super achievers across diverse fields continents and industries, bound together by one thing; the willingness to give God the honour.

It’s not dolu or un-cool to believe in God to make you outstanding and to become outstanding to give Him glory. It’s the in thing! It’s lit. It’s what you do with your swag on tight. Don’t be fooled! Don’t think that fine girls only want pierced lick-lipping bad boys. Kw3r! the favor of God is more attractive than the most wicked tattoo or side burns a.k.a 5-5.

I’m just going to talk about Curry a little because he’s my favorite person in the world right now. Nyatinyati people, with a fraction of his looks and a decimal of his accomplishment feel too good to holler at God, but He is sooooo on FIRE for God, it makes me teary eyed.

Fam, God’s G-spot is His Glory Spot. It’s not yours to keep or share, turn it to him and see how a turned on God shows his ‘gratitude’. Don’t underestimate the weight of your testimony, share it every chance you get. Let’s stop this lie about major success only coming from illuminati, lodge or atheistic affiliations. See there’s an army rising up oo. Me I’m graduating the cadet kraa, lol. Are you going to join it and become a high achiever with no reservation about giving God glory? Say ‘I’m in!’ and give Him some glory.

 

PS: Don’t keep! Share…& then subscribe ok :-)?
