While running my Master’s degree programme, I lived in one of the school hostels.
The block adjacent ours was occupied by some guys. There was a particular room on that block, where the occupants were always blasting music anytime there was electric power supply.
One day, I just started humming one of the songs that those guys used to play, which happened to be the one most common played by them at a time they weren’t even playing the song.
My room mate suddenly yelled out at me at the top of her voice. “Mama!” she shouted.
I looked lost as to the reason she called me out that way. She asked me if I knew the lyrics of the song I was gladly humming, to which I answered in the negative. She told me the lines prior the one I kept humming repeatedly and I was shocked at myself. She knew that I don’t listen to secular music so she was surprised that I was humming one.
The song practically diffused into my system because I kept hearing it even though it was against my will. I guess the soft spot was from the fact that the composer mentioned “Hallelujah” in one of the lines of the song.
My friend, be careful about your company.
If your friend is fond of lying, you might soon find yourself lying freely.
If your friend is extravagant, you might soon start living above your means in a bid to keep up with the tides.
People in your life will either have positive or negative effects on your life; there just must be an impact.
Some people will encourage you to draw closer to God while some will pull you farther away from Him.
Some people’s presence in your life will cost you far more than you can imagine. Such persons could be the loophole for affliction entering your life.
Some people will bring storms into your life (remember Jonah?) while others will bring calm and peace just like Jesus.
Prayerfully choose the people you allow into your space.
Choose the people you allow into the ship of your life CAREFULLY!
