Veteran Nollywood actor Richard Mofe-Damijo took to Instagram page to share this beautiful message that is really inspiring.
I believe the hymn “Count your blessings name them one by one” is to every Christian what the alphabet song is to every child of school age. The big question then is, how many times do we as Christians remember to apply that hymn. I have a friend who I share testimonies with, lately she has been greatly challenged and I have been praying for her and sometimes urging her to share her struggles but she wouldn’t. A couple of days ago she called me and said, she has been refusing the urge to pick up her phone and call me to share her struggles but decided to wait and call me and share her victories instead because she knows they will surely come.
That really resonated with me and got me thinking. There is absolutely nothing wrong with sharing our struggles with trusted friends and family but sometimes instead of picking that phone and calling your best friend or confidant or whoever to lament about your woes, pause say a prayer believe God and wait to share your victories instead because there in lies true success. And, if you can’t wait and must really just call and talk to someone then start by counting all your blessings one by one and conclude by saying “I just called to share how wonderful my life has been”, then be still and know that God is God. Selah! #rmdsaysso #elevatewithrmd
Recall, Richard Mofe Damijo took to Instagram days ago to write a lengthy tribute to singer Seyi Shay for picking herself up with grace after falling on stage while performing at AFRIMMA Awards.
Posting this photo with the singer and ace photographer, Kelechi Amadi, he wrote;
Everyone loves a come back story and so do I. I just love resilience, bravery and dogged determination. I love to see the fallen rise, the beaten win and the spat on shine. I respect a man who rises through the ashes and makes the most out of it and a woman who gets up from a fall like it never happened which brings me to Seyi Shay.
So on sunday the 12th of November at the AFRIMA AWARDS 2017, the talented Sheyi Shay came on stage full of spirit and fire, the crowd went berserk and the entertainer in her took over and as she went down the stage-Boom!!! It happened! An entertainers worst nightmare happened!! The type that when it happens all you want is for the ground to open up and swallow you! No entertainer ever, ever wants to fall on stage and Seyi Shay did, the crowd gasped, I froze BUT Seyi?
She “Shayed” up in style like it was all part of her well choreographed performance and continued like “What fall?” In that moment of brave confidence Seyi Shay became more than a singer to me. Today, Seyi Shay represents strength, confidence, resilience and professionalism, not only because she got up from a fall but because she got up from a fall in the a hall filled with thousands of people and still held her own “like a boss” and without meaning to she taught me that it doesn’t matter who’s watching when you fall, just get up and own it anyway. Remember it is a choice to elevate. #rmdsaysso #riselikeitneverhappened #elevatewithrmd
