Sunday 7 May 2023



I was thinking this morning..... It is no news that yesterday, May 6, 2023, in Westminster Abbey, King Charles III, along with the Queen Consort Camilla, were officially crowned King and Queen of England. What many do not know is that the former Prince Charles became heir apparent (next in line to the throne) at the age of three in 1952, and went on to become the longest serving Prince of Wales in 2017. He waited patiently for 70 years, 214 days to be crowned King.

In a world where everyone is in a hurry, waiting for 70 years for a position 'no be beans o.' We all are stars in the galaxy of life, but not everyone is meant to be Sirius also known as the 'Dog Star' (the brightest shining star in the sky) nor Polaris, the star that never moves. Some are like a shooting star that appears briefly and burns out. Others are meant to shine in the shadows of other stars.

King Charles is a star destined to shine brightest in the twilight of his years, but nevertheless, he shone for 70 years as a Prince. You don't have to be a King or Prince to shine. You don't have to be a President, Governor or Senator to shine. You can shine right where you are. The light is in you and not in the position.

The position is like a lamp holder that helps the light shine brighter. If the light is dead, it doesn't matter the position you occupy, King or President, you will not shine. Many have fought and killed for position and quenched their light forever.

If you are meant to shine at night like the moon but forced your way to shine in the day, you will be inconsequential. Many have done despicable things to shine before their ordained time and ended up burning out like a shooting star. Shine when and where you are destined to shine.

Many believe they need titles and political power to shine, but did not realise that Aliko Dangote has neither and he is shining. Some believe they need loads of money to shine but forgot that Mother Theresa had no money but shone brightly.

Whatever level you are, let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven (Matthew 5:16).

Stay hopeful. God's got our back.

Happy Sunday!
