“Doris, the audience are not actually hissing at you; it’s just a lot of people whispering to each other, ‘That’s Doris Cooper, Gladys Cooper’s sister.'” – Noel Coward

My daughter sure knows how to persistently ask for something. Once she set her eyes on anything she wants, she would barrage you with a truckload of ‘pleases’. Even after I say, I’ll give you that later, she never forgets. She would leave for a while and come back again later to ask of you what she wants. Just yesterday, she asked me to give her a crayon and I said to her, “I’ll give you later, you just finish eating.” After eating, she came back and asked for it again and again and again till I left what I was doing to give her THE crayon.
This song has always ministered to me. God steps in right at that moment when we really want a need met. All He’ s asking is ‘what’s that you have in your hands?’. Once you release it, just get ready for a floodgate of increase and abundance. Be blessed!
Our lives are full of needs that we want God to meet. These needs could be healing for ourselves or a loved one, it could even be school admission for ourselves or our kids or it may be that your present need is to meet the ‘one’ so you can finally settle down to start a family. Others may have all the above but need money for the tuition fees, a new job to be able to support the family adequately or even a better accommodation to bring up the children in a more spacious place. The truth is that we all have needs and as our faces are different so also our needs are.
Today’s society has in many ways made nothing out of commitment. You only need to watch a few movies and see how commitment has been tagged old-fashioned and not necessary in this age and dispensation. Many view commitment as so last century and think that when someone they are in a relationship with suggests commitment, it is time to check out. The situation is no better even in friendships, how many people will stay committed to their friends through the thick and thin and how many will remain loyal when the going is no longer as good as it was in the beginning? But really, let’s give it a thought. What is wrong with commitment?
