BALANCE HOME AND CAREER 3

Helpful tips and steps for every working woman towards being more organized.

1. Find the Right Job: You need to work. Find a job where you can use your talents, something you would like to do even if you have very young children. First, take a look at your options; a full-time or part-time job. Although with a part-time job, you will not make as much money as you would at a full-time job. The few years at home invested in your children will reap tremendous rewards, so consider something you can do from home such as book keeping, secretarial services, selling goods or services from your home. Beauty companies such as Mary Kay, beads and hat making, make-up and so on are all examples of home-based businesses that have made many women successful from the comfort of their homes. If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, then start your own business. Women are earning money from selling their own crafts, fashion, performing desktop publishing or graphic design, telemarketing etc. You may also consider working at a school. Once children are in school, many women become teachers or aides. They are home in the afternoons and on school breaks with their children. If you need to work and your children are in school, think about jobs that allow you to be home in the afternoon and during school breaks.

2. Keep a Right Attitude: Be excited with the journey of life. It is easy to start thinking that everything is too hard and there’s just too much to do. This is a mistake I make too often. If you feel life is too hard, ask yourself – ‘What is missing? What is wrong?’ Ask God to help you refocus on the life he has given you and to find the joy. When you are at home, don’t feel bad about not being at work. Leave office problems at the office, so you will be 100 percent available to your family when you are home. Keep your life balanced as you possibly can.

3. Be Realistic with Your Goals: Remember you cannot do it all. Break the pattern of doing too much. Recognize your limitations and try to delegate more. Asking for help is not weakness, it is sensible management. Think of yourself as the organizer of your day. Plan when you can do certain tasks so you won’t be overwhelmed when it’s time to go home. Balance your tasks between priorities and demands. I define priorities as those things that are important to you which you want to do while demands as those things that are important to someone else which you feel you should do. However, doing only what you want (priorities) is selfish while doing only what others want (demands) is unendurable.

AUGUST 2018 TESTIMONIES

RESTORED BACK TO LIFE
Christ came to my aid and He saved me. I was very ill after delivering my baby and as I lay on the bed I felt like I was going to die but in the midst of it all, I asked God to speak to me even if I was not going to come out of the sickness so that I could prepare myself. I said this because I knew I had served the Lord and I was led to read Ezekiel 7:11. I was in doubt but God proved faithful to His word. I am alive today. Yesterday, as I looked back on my life, I can say that almost all my age mates who served idols are all gone. I am alive today and my children as well. I give all the glory to Jesus Christ, the resurrection and life!

I WALKED MIRACOULOUSLY
I give God all the glory for the privilege to be alive. I put to birth on May 27th, 2018 after I was long overdue. I had my first baby at 42 weeks so I felt this one was also going to follow that trend but it began to take longer and so I prayed to God to let me deliver on the day He has chosen. The night before my delivery, I did not feel too good, I was already 8 centimetres dilated by the time I got to the hospital but when I was examined, they said they know it’s quite rare but my cervix had closed. I eventually delivered the baby after which I passed out. When I regained consciousness, I saw people praying around me. My husband was holding my hands praying for my life. Five days later, I couldn’t walk, I had to be carried from one place to another, I couldn’t even breastfeed the baby and all tests and scans showed that nothing was medically wrong with me. I ought to have dedicated my baby last month but I told my husband that I would walk unassisted into the church to dedicate my baby. I kept declaring it that I am stronger than my enemies and they will not prevail over me. I give God all the glory that I am standing on my feet today against natural terms to dedicate my child.

DIVINE PROMOTION
I have been working with the state government for close to ten years now and the first time I got my promotion was six years after and then another came last month. While I was preparing for the promotion exam, it was the second phase of the RCCG fasting so I determined to fast and pray even as I studied hard for my exam. We eventually wrote the exams and it was indeed a tough one. Nevertheless, I give God all the Glory because the cut off mark was reduced in my cadre. This has never happened in the history of where I work. I know this was so intentionally for my sake. I just don’t know how God did it. I remember while I was writing the exams I placed the handkerchiefs we brought from the convention on my laptop, I also anointed myself with the oil which Pastor Adeboye, Kalejaye and Olukoyede had prayed on and I told God that I could not know these powerful men of God and still fail and to the glory of God I did not. I thank God that when my promotion eventually came, it also met in good health. Praise the Lord!

MISCARRIAGES ENDED
I got married in 2015 and ever since we had been having miscarriages. The first pregnancy was lost at four months and the doctor said that it was due to stress on my wife. Therefore when she was pregnant the second time, I was literally the wife and ensured she avoided stress in any form. However, two months later in the middle of the night, there was another miscarriage. The doctor said the cause of this miscarriage was that the baby did not form well in the womb. My wife became pregnant the third time and it progressed well into the fifth month and I was happy that at least this one had escaped. Unfortunately, in the sixth month we saw a sign of miscarriage and rushed to the hospital. My wife delivered the baby herself and when I was given the baby, it was still breathing. My wife kept crying asking the doctor to please rescue the baby with some form of medical assistance but the doctor said that the equipment to do so was not available in Nigeria and that was how we eventually lost the baby. The fourth pregnancy came and we met with Mummy. She referred us to Deacon Tony and we had prayers for three days. We kept on praying as the pregnancy progressed and everybody joined us in prayer including our house-fellowship, sanitation department and men’s fellowship. I give God all the glory that God eventually blessed us with a baby boy on the June 25th. I remember Mummy said it could be that God was preparing a greater child for us, we believed so and today I carry our baby, the wisdom of God. At a stage while we were waiting my father-in-law suggested that we meet a prophet, but I told him that if the God I served could not give me a child, I would rather remain childless. Another pharmacist at Ibadan asked me to bring ₦30,000 for the preparation of some drugs but I refused. Today, the Lord has done it and it is marvellous in our sight.

I OVERCAME
I want to thank God for my life. I remember 8 years ago when I first gave my life to Christ. It wasn’t an easy thing. My parents stopped sponsoring my education because of my decision to be a Christian but I determined that I was going to complete the program against all odds which I did. It took a lot of hard work for me to proceed to my next level of program but God helped me and I completed my schooling. Finally, God used me to bring Christianity to my family. Praise the Lord!

GOD HELPED ME
I came to the church to pray when my daughter wanted to write her WAEC examinations. I told him I did not have connections with anyone and that He alone should help me. To the glory of God, she had A1 in all her papers. I have come to return all the glory to God. Praise the Lord!

SAFE DELIVERY
I want to give all glory to God that the church is not mourning with my family. There is indeed power on this altar. Throughout the period of my pregnancy, when I am not too tired, I come to pray at the altar. I did this even to the last Sunday in April. I was so heavy, I couldn’t even kneel, so I lied down and my prayers were that God should make me deliver safely. Towards the end of my pregnancy, I don’t know why but I just had this fear in my heart even though it wasn’t my first time. I only went for my antenatal check-up when the nurse discovered that my blood pressure (B.P) was at a high level of 160/100, she took me to the doctor immediately and when he examined me, he said he couldn’t handle my case and he referred me to the gynaecologist. By this time, my B.P had risen to 174/100. She asked me to immediately call my husband that she was admitting me. I explained to her that I had alittle child to attend to at home and moreover, I did not come prepared to be on admission. She said I was doing so at my own risk. I sent a text to Pastor, knowing that he would be busy and he replied almost immediately that I should go and deliver safely. I replied Amen. I then called my husband’s friend and we started praying. By the time I got back to the hospital my B.P was 184/100. I was induced and while I was in labour my B.P skyrocketed to 200/100 and even the doctor was saying, ‘Jesus I need your help!’ I just want to thank God because He delivered me safely. Although there were some issues after the delivery, I appreciate God because my baby and I are alive and well today. Hallelujah!

GOD NEVER FAILS
I want to thank God for the salvation of my soul and for sparing my life. God restored my hope when I thought all hope was lost. I was in labour for two weeks and the doctor said my baby was breeched that I would have to undergo a Caesarean Section but I said no. I told the doctor that I would deliver like the Hebrew women of the bible. I came to church and met Mummy at the women prayer meeting. I went back to the hospital and it seemed like nothing had changed. I just kept telling God that I was trusting Him for a miracle. I remember during my pregnancy, people who did not know me would advise me to pray hard for my delivery. I kept on trusting God because Christ came that I might have life and have it more abundantly, that I would not die but live to declare the word of God. Before I went into labour, I came to the church and laid on the altar, I said God if only You can do this for me, I will come back and testify before the congregation of His people. The doctor insisted that I would be operated upon and my cervix was open for two weeks but I told him that this is the day the Lord has made, I would be glad and rejoice in it, and that I would not leave the hospital that day until I carried my baby alive. At this point my husband was pleading with me that I should allow the doctor operate me. I refused and told him that I know the God I serve, He would deliver me. I kept singing praises to God and praying, as soon as I began to speak in tongues as led and my baby came forth with her head, to God be all the GLORY. I also want to thank God for giving us a home. May the name of the Lord be exalted forever!

POSITIVE RESULT
I want to thank God for making last week a very wonderful week for me. I involved myself in something that I got a positive reply, which was a life changing experience for me. I just want to bless the name of the Lord! I am so grateful to God.
