The cloud of life or the cloud in one's life can be anything that prevents, limits or covers his or her eyes, belief, focus and concentration to see beyond one's immediate or present condition. I chose this word as a way of expressing myself because I think that anything that prevents one to see clearly and directly where she or he is headed is an obstacle to one's vision, pursuits and achievements in life. The cloud above ones life can be a form of limitation in all that he or she does, the cloud in one's life can also be as a result of one's thought and ideology. This can be anything ranging from outside influence, attacks and projections. It can also be as a result of one's flaws, and a direct result of one's inabilities. And other factors that might be said to be clouding one's life might include, the environment, location and social factors.
So I will be talking about them one at a time
1, THE OUTSIDE INFLUENCE:
These includes the challenges, confrontations, wars, spiritual wars, hatred, and projections that are directed at one, from other sources rather than oneself. The manipulations that go on in one's life secretly but very fierce and yet consistent and constant, in the bide to deter that person from getting to where he or she is destined to be. These flood of attacks are meant and directed to sink and overwhelm he or she and to discourage that person from chasing his or her dreams. When they can't stop you, the next move is to limit your pursuit and thereby limiting your productivity. The slandering, the gang up, spiritual and physical intimidation, containment, restrictions and projections that are aimed at confusing you, distracting you, submerging you or even taking you out if that is the only remedy left.
2, THE SELF MADE CLOUD:
These comprises of one's personal flaws, weakness, limitations and inability to rise a
The Frustrations: These includes those things that pile up obstacles on your ways to deter you and make you tired of pursuing your dreams of following up with your calls in life. Do not overlook them though they might be minor issues often overlooked, things not paid attention to or things that we doubt and call them fictions. This part are mostly covered by spiritual attacks, spiritual wickedness, gang ups, manipulations and spiritual assignments aimed at you, to silently eliminate you or cancel you out. If not physically, at least they will try to drain you emotionally, sideline you socially, weaken your desires, motivations, courage and strength, thereby killing your moral to be able to direct and focus your attention and energy towards achieving your goals or aims in life. Because these type of attacks are normally silent, and one might fail to notice the snare or trap within them, so they tend to stress us, push us or even trigger us into making bigger blunders and mistakes in life.
The cloud of provocations: This range from many aspects of the enemies attacks to steal your joy, to cause you grief, anxiety and confusions due to one's inability to think properly as a result of the cloud hovering above us. This might lead to misunderstanding other people due to other people's actions towards us, it might also be as a result of frustration. Or a well planned attack or projection, well calculated that one might fail to see the trap within. Impatience can be another deadly flaw that has the ability to destroy ones view and lead him or her astray. We should be mindful of our thoughts, desires and wants. Fear, anxiety and doubts are also extremely dangerous to ones ability to pursue his or her undertaking and projects in life.

Life as a sojourner, an alien, an immigrant or a stranger is a life full of tales and tests. It is like living in a no man’s land and one is bound to face uncertainties, trials and unforeseen circumstances. Like we all know life itself is a test but I chose to write about life as a stranger for a certain reason. And I will speak from my perspective and within the scope of religious beliefs. I have always had this in mind but something propelled me to write about it. Coming from Africa, a land that has been enslaved and still living in the shackles of slavery but purely mentally I will say. Though it can’t all be limited to mental slavery but like I said I will keep it things with the range of my discussion within the spiritual and religious belief. And even within the spiritual aspect of it I will be speaking from the Christian perspective. Most at times we Africans complain about the colonial era and the effects of slavery, we have always associated that with our present misfortunes both on governmental levels, educational, economical, etc.
Hi everybody, my name is Klynch and I am representing Radio Canal China, I am about to introduce our new live video streaming called I-CONQUER. And also take some time out to encourage those that seek to do that which seems impossible or unrealistic at the moment.
I-Conquer online TV (live video streaming) is the first of its kind here in China. Developed and engineered to success by an African, but with the aim of reaching out to the world as a whole. Our aim is to tell our stories by ourselves and I am so glad to let you all know that you can put yours too plus you can put yourselves on the global stage with just the click of your mouse. Unlike TV, live video streaming can be played and streamed all of the world and the best part of it that you can even watch it on the go. Using your mobile devices, laptops or PCs, plus it is free! It is accessible, unique and easy in every sense of the word.........Read more
Time is the essence and our works the proof and evidence of how we live, what we sow we reap, what we give we get back in return.
Our works comprises of our deeds, thoughts and actions towards others, both those that love us and those that don't.
At times it might seem as if God is totally silent, or at times due to what we face in life we might conclude in a hurry that
God doesn't care. When it seems as if the wicked prosper without stress, when it seems that the unjust get away with their evil
deeds and yet flourish and even the oppressors trample on their victims with nobody to check their actions.
Or when it seems as if the just grief, the poor cry and the needy groan with none to care for them or even speak for them.
So it might seem at times but I came to realize that it isn't always so, because when we think (thought) God is silent,
uncaring and unmoved by our plights in life, the truth is that He is caring and He understands what we go through.
There are so many reasons why God doesn't react in the exact way we want Him to, for His ways are not our ways
and His time is not our time. It is important to understand that God is just and loving
in all things and at all times. Though the pressures of life and the difficulties we face at a particular moment
in time might push us to the extreme and lead us to the point that we begin to think otherwise and try to seek solutions
from the wrong source or begin to see things from the wrong perspectives or even pressured to the limit that
we tend to seek answers at all cost regardless of what God's plans are for us in that particular situation. I will say
to any who cares to listen and to anyone who truly trust in God that just as the bible said in Romans 8:28
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according
to his purpose." Our struggles, challenges and the wars that confront us are always blessings wrapped up in pains.
Or as the saying goes " there are blessings in disguises". Even when we don't see them so, or even when we are filled with
doubts and carried away by worries it is important to realise this and walk by faith instead of walking by sight.
And from my own perspective I think that our problems are always ways by which God show us His power, they might be
means of educating, elevating, strengthen and broadening our mind to the ever changing, incomprehensible,
immersed and unending saving powers of God. They might also be ways by which He wants to draw us closer to Him, maybe
ways by which He intends to save us from unforseen disaster, or means by which He wants to redirect our course if and maybe
we are on the wrong path or even to reshape our focus. May we not also forget that our pains might be as a result of
our wrong doings too, and even if it is so, then it is still a blessing that we should be grateful for. For Hebrews 12:6 says
"Because The Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son." And Proverbs 3:12 says
"because the LORD disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in." One should be happy to be loved and remembered
by God, even when the pains are not fun or plesant but the thought of being loved by the Most High God and being remembered
by Him signifies that we are in safe hands and counted as His. So therefore to think that we are left alone to deal with
our problems is a mistake that one should learn to correct and understand that God keeps count of every action we take
and every action taken against us. For the bible said in Psalm 56:8 "You keep track of all my sorrows.You have collected all
my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book". Though it might seem as if it is taking too long for
our prayers to be answered, too long for our needs to be met or maybe we think that the enemy won't get punished for
the evil they do and for the evil they might be doing at the moment but it is not so. For there are so many things we
can not see with our own eyes, many things we can not understand or even believe even when being told or shown.
Also bear in mind that, we are all children of God, and God is always just, so He will treat all with love for 2 Peter 3:9 says
"The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone
to perish, but everyone to come to repentance". Again know that most people will suffer in silence because they know the
weight of the evil that they have done, so they will pretend as if all is well and prefer to die in silence than let
those they have offended know their ordeal. If God was and is still patient with us, then others deserve His patience too,
regardless of how one feels but this is the truth and we can't change it, neither can we judge them. Because God alone
is the only true judge. It is better to depend on God for guidance and ask for His directions at all times not only during trials.
By so doing we will get to understand the deep things that are hidden from our naked eyes and get to know that there are
some things that can only be understood through His divine wisdom and by the help of The Holy Spirit.
I suggest we pay attention when we are undergoing a particular problem or set of problems in life, then one can learn more,
if we are focused. Than we can ever learn if we chose to complain about everything. For life, is in stages and one stage
prepares us for the next, so whatever we learn now will be of great importance for the next stage that we are about enter.
And whatever one fails to learn now, he or she might pay for it in the next stage in life. So again, our pains and troubles
might be as a result of what we failed to learn in an earlier stage.
For somethings must be learnt before one can proceed to the next phase of life or else he or she might keep moving around in
circles without making any head way. In regard to this I say that somethings depend on us, the faster we are willing to adapt to
change or learn, in some cases might determine how fast our circumstances change. So bear in mind that the time and results
we seek might all lie in our hands without us knowing. But this too needs wisdom and God's guidance to be able to understand it.
So therefore I suggest that how fast we learn, or how fast we tend to adapt to change and or even how willing we are to change
might all be the key or set of keys one needs to advance to the next phase of his or her life. When you do good, you get it back,
maybe not at the moment or maybe not as you expected it but believe it, it all comes back to you in one way or the other. So too
is it when you do bad, evil will you get in return. There is no way you can outsmart God, neither will God defraud you. Though
some are favored but none is exempted from punishment, though it might take time but it will come. Be it good or bad.
There is a reason why I chose this topic, do you know that people can get into your head, do you believe that people can listen through and get to hear what you listen to on your headphone? Do you know that people can appear
crazy and insane and yet they are not ? Do you know that people can make what you do go wrong due to your own mindset.
Why is this so? It is so, because it is manipulation in it’s highest form and worst part of it, you can not even explain to people because you might feel ashamed, you might appear crazy and unrealistic but the truth is that you are right but others do not simply see what you see neither do they feel what you feel. And to some it is impossible for such things to happen. How do manipulations work? Manipulations take so many form, happens anywhere and can happen to anyone if one is not vigilant or careful enough. It works spiritually, socially, emotionally, mentally, psychologically and in many other forms. It happens to people without even some knowing that they are being manipulated
First you have to know that at times problems are not actually problems but solutions and lessons wrapped up together. When you are in the midst of friends, co workers, partners or family members that want to use, misuse, confuse, , and refuse to accept the manifestation of your destiny and star but instead they engage in oppressing and suppressing your rise in life. Then the stage is set for manipulations, and it won't be long before the cards are dealt out. This is mostly done by people who do not like you but pretend to, or even when you are around people who fear your talent, gifts, star, charisma, confidence and abilities. Watch out! Even when you are in a business settings, in your work place or even in normal social or communal settings. Remain vigilant and self conscious for their wicked and mysterious devices plots, schemes and tricks that they use to hurt, hunt, bring and pull people down. These includes Spiritual means, physically, psychological.,emotionally, mental, social and so many other means.
They always have black magic and witchcraft, infused in mockery, threats, blackmail, humiliation and isolation strategies. Though it all begins with a small circle but they end up employing and having a very large
circle of followers, network, clique and connections. They employ witches, sorcerers, diviners, native doctors,
rain makers, pastors, imams and spiritual contractors , drug dealers, harlots, drivers and taxi drivers and they also use rented cars to aid them to monitor their prey. When they have isolated you from the social network, reduced your friends circle, separated you from your loved ones. Then they now leave you with very little option to choose from and mostly from what they have to offer, both relationship wise and companionship wise. Once you make the wrong choice and chose one of their own as a soul mate or acquaintance to be a shoulder to lean on, then It’s either he or she is a witch or a wizard or someone that will be willing to learn the craft to keep and hold you down.
Then, next they try to figure out your weak points, your dark secrets, flaws, things that you are ashamed of and when you engage in them. Then they try to use black magic, spells and omens to control you and the events around you, Mostly they use your weakness to counter your strength, they try to kill your confidence, to make you unable to function and yet make you think it's as a result of your flaws. They battle you at your weakest moments, trying to subdue you, to silence, humble and make you submit to their demands
Once you fall, they begin to use your weakness, against you, even before you fall or whether you fall or not, they try to predetermine your failure by manipulating you into the next action, ( i.e lording it over you) according to the times.
When you find yourself facing some sort of special problems or situations that tends to make you appear crazy, insecure, isolated and avoided by people or friends that you once trusted, or even still trust and love. Or when you find yourself being humiliated and belittled by people that you actually know that you better than, then it's time to get vigilant, wise and conscious and very careful. Because even your best friends, lovers, partners or even co workers might be part of this big scheme.
FOR THE FULL VERSION LISTEN ON............
MORE EPISODES COMING ON THIS WATCH OUT!
They can trace and monitor you for years, and try to plant electronic devices in your home, to video and record your audio.
Conversations and affairs. They use blackmail, intimidation, threats, but when all these fails they use charms
And even implore the aid of your house help, security guards, best friends,
Life can be hard at times, frustrating, demanding and annoying. Pressures from families, friends, work, society and foes can even make things worst.
Rage might build up, and anger flare up in an instant like one's mind is about to explode. In times like this patience and endurance is needed. Take time out, reflect and think again, instead of diving into the wave of rage and consumed by the fire ignited by your anger. A moment of anger can cost you a misery of a life time, and a moment of patience can save one from disaster. Try to minimize the use of curse words or even worst violent actions in expressing yourself, try walking away from your provocations. Stay away from things, people and places that get you enraged, provoked and trapped although this on it's own can not be a total solution. But still yet it is better to try to divert one's focus away from the source of his or her provocations, pressures and emotional trauma, who knows a bit of fresh air, site seeing, chit chat and hanging out with loved ones can a difference and make one feel a bit relaxed. Better still remember that it's not what others do to you that really matters but how we react to what they do is that all matters, some were meant to be a thorn in others flesh and a source of provocation to whoever they meet and where ever they go. You can not change this people but you can use them to change yourself, this is when and where wisdom comes into play. Outsmart your enemy by using their weapons to your advantage and to their disadvantage. Knowing that whenever you rise above their provocations and manipulations, they get enraged, provoked and trapped in their own schemes, and you get better from falling into their traps and even stronger by rising above their schemes. Thereby leaving them powerless, confused and restless, sooner or later they will have little or no choice but to quit pressurizing you, provoking and manipulating you. Why? Because each time they do they pierce themselves with their own swords and get themselves trapped, depressed, caged and destroyed. You can not curse your way out of life, nor can you always physically fight your way out of life. Whether we accept it or not, there is more to life than the physical aspect it, Life is deeper than that, it goes beyond what the naked eyes can comprehend, for everything is being controlled by the spiritual side of life but I leave for next time. But still yet always bear in mind that a good fighter doesn't fight with anger and rage within. ( though physically you might appear but within cool and calm). So therefore for you to win you must be focused and aim to land your punches at the right spot and targets to earn the desired points you need. Life might be hard and stressful at the moment but victory is assured for those willing to give it their all. I say your best might not be enough, so do what has to be done to get what you desire in life.
I have a dream, I live for a purpose, not one defined or dictated by man or a group of people. My life is like a stream that flows, finding it's way through the curves, turns and edges of life. I search out my paths regardless of what goes down. No man has the power to prevent the time, purposes and plans of God. Even God has given us all the power of choice, Read more
