The wife of the Bauchi State Governor,Hajiya Hadiza Mohammed, recently put smiles on the faces of Christian women at Bayara community of Bauchi when she distributed food items in the spirit of Christmas.
The gesture was done through her pet project known as the Bauchi Sustainable Women Economic Empowerment and Peace Initiative, B-SWEEEP
‘Christmas celebrations are not complete when we have not touched the lives of women who are the pillars of the family.This intervention is been carried out every festive season with the support of the state government who is mindful of the needs of the citizens at such celebrations’’
“This period calls for sober reflection on the teachings of Jesus Christ and the purpose of his birth.You should also use the season to pray for the peace of the state and nation, particularly we are approaching the general election,’’she said
She implored women to instill moral virtues in the lives of their children so that they can be responsible persons in the society and urged to acquire skills to empower thier lives and family.
In her remarks , the state Commissioner of Women Affairs, Rukaiya Ibrahim Kewat,noted that the cardinal responsibility of any government was to affect the citizens through interventions that bring radical improvement for them.
The commissioner, who said that the gesture was aimed at putting smiles on the faces of the women, urged the women associations to ensure that the food items are distributed justly to every woman beneficiary.
If you’ve ever suffered the loss of someone dear to you, you know how deep and dark the journey of grief can be. But here is a young woman who pressed through that deep darkness until she found treasure, which she has brought back to share with all of us…
We have escaped like a bird from the fowler’s snare; the snare has been broken, and we have escaped (Psalms 124:7, NIV).

TEXT: Psalms 124:1-8
Gratitude always takes people above the ground but ingratitude often take people below the ground (which is the grave). If you are not grateful you will be grounded. You are not better than the people that have been grounded so give God praise. Hope you know some of your age mates are living under the bridge hopeless and helpless. A lot more are insane. Many more are dead but you are alive to the glory of God. Only fools don’t see reasons to praise God. The bible says: “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not” (Lamentation 3:22). Every man is consumable if not for the mercies of the Lord. It is the desire of the devil for you to be long dead but God’s mercies kept you. Remember the bible says: “The thief (devil) cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy” (John 10:10). That has always been the mission of the devil against your life but God won’t let him have his way rather the Spirit of God (The Power of God) is always raising His standard against the devil for your sake and the voice of God is always saying; “Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm (Psalms 105:15). Hallelujah!!! See how much the mercy of God is fighting for you because God loves you.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Gratitude takes people above the ground but ingratitude takes people below the ground.
PRAYER: Father, thank You for all You have done for me and my entire family. May Your mercies keep defending us so we won’t be grounded in Jesus name.
