Doctor: Madam good morning, sure you are fine and how is your health?
Patient: I am fine doctor, but my leg, the wound refuses to go, this wound has been here since last year and all treatments have proved useless, even your treatment?
Doctor: Well that was the reason, I came to see you. Is this a conducive time to talk, are you okay with me talking here, and do you need any family member around while I talk?
Patient: Yes, my husband.
Husband enters the scene and sits on a chair brought for him.
Doctor: Madam, we have done everything medically possible to ensure that we save your leg and we have run a couple of tests and our latest test show that the artery supplying your foot is severely compromised and is no longer bringing adequate blood to your foot.
Husband: Doctor, stop speaking in riddles.
Doctor: Having exhausted all regular treatment options, I would strongly advise you to consider an amputation of the limb to prevent further complications.
Husband stands up, pacing about…Wife talks to herself.
Patient and Husband: God forbid, back to sender, evil people will not rejoice over us.
Well it required, several counselling sessions, before the patient accepted to amputate her foot and she is better for it. She is alive and moving on with life and if you do not observe carefully, you would not notice she is on prosthesis.
Many others who refuse even when it is obvious, they are suffering from the complications of having a dead or dangerous limb pay with their lives.
Today, my focus is on singles, in dead and or dangerous relationships, but still dragging the relationship forward by all means.
Courage, you must take a shot of this as you step into 2018. No one wants to live in uncertainty, no one likes being in situations where questions asked cannot be answered. No one wants to live in situations where all things are not figured out.
In a relationship, no one likes to invest time and then find out time and resources were invested in the wind. No one loves to sample, sample and sample and then when it is time to be sampled, they are told the sample is out of stock.
Young lady, young man, as the year winds down, take stock of your relationship. What direction is it heading towards? You cannot be headed towards Port Harcourt and your relationship is heading towards Sokoto and you wishfully think everything will just normalize. You cannot be in a relationship where both of you do not even know what direction it is headed and you both think somehow, everything would fall in place.
You cannot be in a relationship with someone that abuses you emotionally and makes you to feel worthless and useless to an extent the person becomes a pill you must take to feel useful again. You cannot be in a relationship where you are used as a practice punching bag for your partner as he prepares for a future phantom match with Floyd Mayweather.
You cannot be in a relationship with a young man, who is a push and start…He does not take any initiative until you make sure “Newton’s first law of motion” happens to him. Without pushing, and many times nagging with your mouth or waist he cannot start anything. You cannot be in a relationship primarily to win people’s approvals.
You cannot be in a relationship where cheating is explained away either by threat, false beliefs, warped trends or wishfully thinking he or she would get better once they pop the question. You cannot use sex as a weapon to trap any person or force them to commit to you.
You cannot be in a relationship where you are virtually in a competition with myriads of ladies and gentlemen and your primary joy or motivation, is that you want to be the last man or woman standing.
And eeeeeeem, you cannot be in a relationship, where you have lost your peace and all your internal alarm bells are ringing nonstop, even when you have done virtually everything to muffle their sound.
As this year comes to an end, it is a time to be courageous and to make decisions that would be beneficial to you and God in the long run…and some of these decisions would involve an amputation.
Receive wisdom and courage to make next year count…Let it go.
God bless you loads.
Seeking for second opinion is not weakness
By Ovundah Nyeche
Pilate wanted to let Jesus go. So he made an appeal to the crowd again. But they kept shouting, “Crucify him! Crucify him!” Pilate spoke to them for the third time. “Why?” he asked. “What wrong has this man done? I have found no reason to have him put to death. So I will just have him whipped and let him go.” But with loud shouts they kept calling for Jesus to be crucified. The people’s shouts won out.
Luke 23:20-23 NIRV
The e-mob, the online offsprings of their ancestors who cancelled Jesus…the template is same…accuse anyone of anything…accuse a man you can’t get of rape and the mob shouts, ‘crucify him’… and willing accusers show up.
Accuse a pastor of rape and killing a girl in his church and the mob shout, bloooooood, blooood we need blood…it is true…that is where he gets his power from…and willing accusers type on social media…many times things not true.
Accuse a business entity of ‘kurukere’…and come all out…cancel them…they are cancelled…accuse a rich man of doing rituals…and the mob shouts burn, destroy, scatter, steal, kill destroy.
Have a heartbreak, get upset, accuse the alleged heartbreaker of ‘Wu Wu not take it’ …flash his or her number online and tell the mob, feed them with blood…shout bloooooood, shout attack and they all go out…with no evidence, no thought, no critical reasoning, no second opinion and they go for blood…and the cycle continues.
Seeking for second opinion is not weakness… patience is not weakness… temperance is not weakness…mercy is not weakness…it seems it is weakness…until you are in front of the mob…a cockroach in the gathering of chickens.

Blue Tongues may spell danger.
By Ovundah Nyeche
The tongue sometimes tells a story…
When you go for a party or an outing and you see people’s tongue blue, it is likely a pointer that drinks are laced with Rohypnol.
Rohypnol is a tranquilizer ( drug used to relieve tension and anxiety) which is 10 times more potent than valium.
It some countries it is used as a sleeping pill.
Rohypnol also is abused as a recreational, or “club” drug, often in conjunction with alcohol to provide a high.
It is used in various forms including; crushing the pills and snorting the powder, sprinkling it on weed and smoking it, dissolving it in a drink or injecting it.
It is called in the streets; roofies, date rape, forget me pill amongst other names.
When drinks are laced with Rohypnol, the person who drinks it may not know as it is odourless and tasteless and because it is a strong sedative and also associated with amnesia the victim will not remember what happened, little wonder it is called forget me pill.
It is one of the commonest cause of surprise pregnancies in young people, especially when the only thing they can remember was that they went to a party or visited someone.
Choose your friends wisely and shine your eyes.
Drugs do not pay.
Stay away from drugs!

Anger, a ‘D’ short of Danger.
By Ovundah Nyeche
I have seen sweet people turn to incredible hulk with little or no provocation, I have seen people who their anger is like bicycle, ‘e no dey hard to start’…yeah some of them believers too.
I have seen people leave a church program in high spirit, blessed and inspired and boom minutes later fight violently with other people, for almost no reason at all…I have seen people turn red with little or no provocation.
I have seen people have their weddings called off because of misplaced outbursts of anger publicly exposed due to the planning stress. I have seen brethren turn their wives to punching and kicking bags and I have seen wives turn their husbands to punching and scratching bags.
And many time help is closer than many people think.
It is good to pray and fast, make up and make decisions to change, but when it
‘Told in Gath, Proclaimed in the streets of Ashkelon— and the daughters of the Philistines rejoice, and the daughters of the uncircumcised triumph’ that you are an atomic bomb looking for where and on whom to explode, it is vital to seek help quickly.
Fortunately help is available, as you pray and fast, it is not unscriptural to seek medical help…to seek Psychiatric help…to begin cognitive behavioral therapy and medications where necessary.
Mental health issues are not wished away, or watered down by ice cream, a new bag, a gift, a hug or make up sex, alcohol or recreational drugs.
Seek help, before you destroy important pillars in your life.
