Hello everyone, I hope you had a memorable night.
As was announced on the blog last week, there would be a new segment on the blog: Debbie’s Corner anchored by my sister where she will have her own personal space to explore the world of writing one piece at a time. 
In true fashion to keeping our words, we have the first post published on the blog today.

There is more to life. 

There is more to life than just waking up to do the same routine everyday. There is more. 

There is something great in you and you know it. 

There is more than managing to stay alive everyday. There is a purpose for life that gives joy; that gives fulfilment.

There is a reason for your creation. There is a life better than what you live. 

There is a plan in God’s hands that He wants for you, it’s far more than that office you squeeze and enclose yourself in, it is far more than that house you manage to live in. 

There is a life that God wants you to live that would inspire people; that would bring out the best in others. 

There is more to life than just being another tenant when you can be a landlord, there is more to life than being a hardworking staff who collects stipend every month when God has destined for you to be an employer of labour.

There is more to life than buying a mudu of rice every month just to keep body and soul together when God has planned that you would feed the hungry. 

Who says you can’t own your own car, own your own house. Who says you can’t run your firm or even an NGO, who says you can’t help orphans out there, who says you can’t rule your world, who says you can’t change the world. 

There’s more to life than what you see, look beyond the surface, search yourself and find those potentials hidden on the inside of you. 

You are born to be great, you are born to be a winner, and you are born to be successful, born to be an inspiration to others, born to be a source of empowerment to people. You are born to be more than what you are right now.

  1. I've been thinking about the things you wrote here. I was thinking about quitting my job (I work all week except for Sundays, leave the house early(6am) get back late(8:30pm), no time to work/study on the idea I got ) cos it's stressful, I'm not fulfilled but recession and the current situation of the country wouldn't allow me.

    I know there's more to life than the way I'm living mine now. Amazingly, to the glory of God, I have an idea I'm working on but I would have progressed better if I had time but I'm holding unto God and not giving up.

    Thank you Debbie, God bless you.


    1. Dear Tolu, I am happy this post resonated so much with you and that you have a great idea which could change your life. Please do not give up, as long as you persist there's light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

  2. Sometimes, we most take very bold steps to reach that level of fulfilment and trust me the road is not as straight but it is worth it at the end. The 1st step to getting there is actually discovering that you could do more and am glad you have discovered that. I pray for Gods grace for what you are working on and for Gods direction to that place He wants you to be.

    Thank you for reading and commenting, I appreciate.

  3. Dear Deborah,
    I read the article you wrote. I was so impressed with it, and your style of writing generally. So impressed was I that I headed straight to your house after reading the article to give you a big hug. Unfortunately you were not around. I tried to comment on your blog, but I have been having difficulties.
    Thank you for sharing these powerful thoughts. There is actually more to life than a vast majority of us take it. Knowing that we have only one life to live, one is required to make every efforts to live it to the fullest. It is so amazing to watch Deborah, whom I bore in my arms a few years ago grow to be a source of inspiration to many in such a manner. I am proud of you girl. The world awaits you to unleash this great potentials with which you are loaded. Go on and pursue, overtake and recover all. God bless you
    By the way, I think we share a common interest : Writing. My own greatest challenge has been creating time for it.

    1. Amen. Thank you very much sir. I'm glad you enjoyed reading it.

  5. Thanks for the thought. Once we realize this, we shall be unstoppable!
