17th Word

Remember Samuel: the guy whom God called over and over, yet didn’t know who was calling? It was not just that he did not know who was calling; he took him to be someone else. Thank God for Eli’s direction.

Remember the Spirit saying after He had spoken: “he that has an ear, let him hear what the spirit is saying?” It was not a question of “if He would speak,” but if those He had spoken to, would hear.

How long has God been trying to reach you and you have been offline?

When you stay online, God will make you, use you for others and prove his might in your life.

Calling your attention again in this edition of grenepages to some of the issues God wants to discuss with you. Do you have some time? Come online!

This is our 17th issue. Once again, welcome!

Moving Forward With Your Idea

Moving Forward With Your Idea

The idea manager should have healthy attitude in order to make timely progress towards the attainment of the vision.

Take this course

To look at the rear, you need to turn which demands you stopping or slowing down in your forward movement.

6grid2: Not Looking Sideways

Though it is possible to be educated by taking note of your environment, it could serve as an albatross if not well managed.

Looking downwards is counterproductive. When you walk on the streets looking down continuously, chances are high that you will bump into people and objects.

6grid4: Not Looking Upward

The surrounding conditions that might seemingly influence your idea are not static as they vary with time.

6grid5: The Need To Look Forward

There is a wrong and unnecessary demand on the time, health, relationship of your team members when involved in things outside the vision, which they are recruited for or volunteered for.

From Idea To A Movement

05grid

From Idea To A Movement

Ideas have the potential to grow beyond the originator to become independent of his/her direct involvement.

Take this course

Course Content

5grid1: Content

You need to be careful to build around the vision. Build around the content and not yourself.

5grid2: Prayer

Beyond what you can communicate in the physical, your spirit does more to their spirit because your vision is actually domiciled in your spirit.

5grid3: Relationships

Imbibe the vision in people. The vision has to be effectively and efficiently communicated to get people to buy in to the idea, embrace it and run with it as if it is theirs.

5grid4: Involving People

People want to be able to take credit and own their part in the whole vision. Help them to own the vision as they see themselves as stakeholders and not just workers.

5grid5: Continuation

The key in getting and maintaining result is found in continuity. Some practice well but do not continue or continue only for a while.

5grid6: Discontinuation
