A NEW DAWN

When will my Time Come?

Waiting for the breaking of the new dawn might be frustrating, but we must understand the place of time in the breaking of our dawn.

The hours of darkness does not last beyond the night. It is never in the plan of God that anyone should taste sorrow beyond a while.

But, many times we do the things that we ought to when we feel like it and eventually slow down the breaking of our dawn.

Everything in existence is subject to time except God, the creator of time. Yet He doesn’t displace the importance of time in any of His undertaking. Anytime you do not allow time to take its course, you are disrupting the order of nature. Whatever you do not subject to time, will fade away in no time.

Time is a revealer. Whatever is hidden today, time will soon reveal its identity. Whatever you want to validate its authenticity, give it time. It’s not every offer that will usher in your dawn, give it time.

Time is a teacher. There are certain processes we must go through before the breaking of our dawn that takes time. Don’t jump the process, even if it takes time. If you do, no matter how far you’ve gone, you’re still coming back to where you started from.

The breaking of the dawn is time bound. If you fail to sow when you should, don’t expect harvest when others are. If you fail to master the things you should on time, you might delay the breaking of your dawn.

It is true that we want the dawn to break as soon as now, but it is not always so if the time for it is not now. Wait for your time.

Don’t lose hope, it is a matter of time, your new dawn is about to break.

MARCH FORWARD VIII Tick Tock!

I couldn’t believe it was already 4am when I heard the sound of my alarm. I wanted to stand up, but the sweet caress of my bed just wouldn’t let me.

As I dismissed the alarm and turned to the other side of my bed, I recalled the work I wanted to concoct that morning. As if an ant bite my buttocks, I jumped up and told my bed, ‘see you in the night.’

As onerous as it might be to yield to the beckoning of time, it is the most profitable. The beauty of attaining a feat lies more in attaining it in its time.

We must wake up to the consciousness of attaching something to every moment. A man who is conscious of time is conscious of life. Every moment will begin to count to you when you begin to make time count.

Many people are waiting for time, forgetting that time will not lift a finger, but it’s what we do with time that determines what will move with time.

It might take time, but it will take more than time. I don’t argue that it’s a matter of time, but a matter will only remain as it is or get worst if no move is made on time.

Life is a process and processes lies in life. Only the things that go through its processes come out whole and stand the test of time.

Some achievements demand waiting. You might knock on a door for months and even years. In the process, several people will show you other fish to fry, but you must not allow them to terminate your chance to wait and enjoy what lies in the door you want to access. You must learn that it is understanding time to know when you are in your waiting season.

Running ahead of time is disastrous, as it is the easiest way for a man to dig his own grave with his own hands.

Haste is not the same as speed. Doing what you need to do proactively and in the consciousness of time guarantees speed. But, it is not speed if you omit a process; it is being in a haste.

Unnecessary haste sponsor unsafe landing. Every process you jump because you’re in a haste will eventually affect your outcome.

Yet, moving behind time is embarking on a life wasting journey. You’ll be dazed when you open your eyes to find out that the little boy you knew yesterday is already ahead.

Time is a gift designed to be a lift if only we learn to maximize it. The prime of life is not a time to joke with, use it well.

Time is like a dime. If you maximize each second, it is potent enough to become a lot.

Someone is somewhere sitting and lamenting that it is too late to start when possibilities lie in every moment. Someone is saying I will start tomorrow what he can start today, forgetting that tomorroe is the reflection of today.

Like each hour waits for the preceding hour to be unraveled, he who waits for his time, his hour will definitely come and his season shall be seasoned.

You might still be tasting bitterness, but that does not mean sweetness does not lie in a bitter leaf; it is only that the season has not yet come.

As the count of each second usher in the breaking of the day, so will your daily minute effort usher in the breaking of your dawn. Worry not if you’re in your night season, only don’t stop marching, the day will soon break.

See to it, no second must go without something attached to it. Wait for your time, but don’t while away time. Take a step at a time, but you must not deliver lesser than your capacity at a time.

Move, time is always on the move. Spend every moment in the consciousness of time.

Every tick tock marks a progression; every choice, every decision, every step you take, be sure it is a forward march.

Keep Marching Forward!

MARCH FORWARD VII Do It Now

Like a young lady whose mother tag after to the house of the boy who impregnated her, Timileyin entered the house. Several questions were painted on the face of his neighbours, but maybe because I was wonted with his drama, I was unstirred.

But I must open my heart- I had been waiting for a day like this. We had talked about it several times, but he was always giving omnifarious reasons why he can’t do it now.

Though I heard all that was going on outside, I didn’t move an inch until I heard a knock on the door. I thought it was him who had come to say goodbye, but it was one of my neighbours who thought I was not aware.

When I was about to shut the door, right before me was Timileyin. I didn’t want to cry when he said goodbye, but I didn’t know when tears started climbing down my cheeks. I was really going to miss him, but he had to leave to march forward. He had been proposing and disposing the idea even when he knew it was the way out, but he finally did it.

The period between knowing the way forward and marching forward has been to many people more than a decade. Not because it takes that long to march forward, but because even when we know what and how, we still pick a bed instead of fastening our belt.

Sometimes like cowards, we run back the moment we sight a rat on the way, instead of going to where we ought to be. Some other times, we cook up several reasons why we can’t move yet, and keep postponing our season of glorification.

The value of attaining an height is not just attaining it, but when you attain the height. What you should do now will lose its worth if it’s done later, don’t wait till tomorrow. Face it now. Don’t wait till you’re faced with regrets. What you cannot run away from, you must take away.

There is no price tag placed on marching forward that is too high, the farther you want to get to, the higher the price.

Any offer to march forward without the price of hard work and diligence is a pit in disguise. Short cuts will only shorten your life. Do the right thing you need to do to march forward now, not anything.

When you start marching determines when you will march forward. Do not wait till later to do what you should do now! No one kicks the orange he is to eat first as a ball and then pick it up later to eat it.

No one said it will be bread and butter, but that it is not easy does not mean it is not possible. It is only nothing that is served in the plate of ease. You can never get to know it is attainable until you try to go for it. The sooner, the better; do it now! Face your fears now; you might get a tear, but it will end your tears.

Discipline yourself when you need to, deny yourself which you need to, don’t wait till tomorrow, do what you need to, now!

I mean NOW!
