A black blazer is a must own. It is fun and easy to pair up. It can give a simple but sophisticated look as well. Best of all it can be worn on just about anything and for every style.

You can have it on a pair of short shorts, some rocker leather pants/leggings,  a cute dress and a pair of good jeans.

God's time is the best time

Standard
God's time is the best time

God is the Lord of patience and time.

 

Often we want our lives to go accordingly to what we need and want but we only think of the present and not about the future or even if we do think of the future, we do not know all of the ways, steps, people and situations that will take us there but the Lord knows. Before the He take you before He take you to where you need to be, you need to learn and learning is something that we as human beings naturally do not want to do because, we think that with our past experiences and teachings, they are sufficient enough for us to know what is right or wrong. When God wants you to take another route in your life, or remove the people whom He knows are not the best for you to  walk beside you he will do ANYTHING to remove you from that situation by taking you through heartaches, trying times just because He cares for you, not that He wants to hurt you. Our Lord is the same Lord today. Tomorrow and forever, therefor He can bring you to something temporary but if that is not the right time or right thing He will remove and you have to pray for patience to say:

 

”Lord, I do not know what you’re trying to tell me, but at your time, I’ll get to know”

 

You need to be patient in the Lord.Pray for guidance and wisdom in everything that you’ll do. This will open up your eyes, heart and soul to take in His ways that he has for you and your life.Take a time to look back at what you have been through, the people that have left your life and look around you now. What has changed? Did you not manage to get through that horrible divorce? Get over the death of your loved one? Manage to become SOMEBODY in life? Got through that heartbreak? You did it by your will to listen and seek God but also having faith that He will never forsake or leave you.

 

Every blessing ignored becomes a curse –paulo Coelho

and sometimes God speak to us about life, the ways he want you to take, the people you should have but if you do not have God in your life, believe in Him and live by his righteous ways, you will drift from Him and seek wisdom and answer all by yourself that  can resolve to every blessing that he gives in your life, you ignore it because you have put yourself in a situation where God used to speak to you and you did not listen and that curse becomes a circle of another curse. You will soon lose confidence in yourself and  start thinking, since I have come this far, this is what the Lord wanted to be, but most of the times it is not. This can be proven by people who in their lives thought that they made the best decision and got temporary satisfaction by it, but later on that decision turned out to be not God’s decision and the moment they seek God, he removes them from that decision to begin their life with his decision .

 

When you speak, walk and talk with God, he guides you to exactly what you need in life, you just have to be open to receive his word and live by it, no matter how hard it is, trust in the Lord

And when asked what he could have done by one of the callers from Mansa if he were in Renard’s shoes, Katongo said he is a Christian and would have forgiven Mulenga.

“If I was in Renard ‘s shoes, I was going to forgive Mulenga because God also forgives our sins daily but I being the Captain of the team I led by example and exhibited some discipline both inside and outside the pitch,” Katongo said.

How to keep a good woman happy and loved

Standard
How to keep a good woman happy and loved

As men, we always want to believe that women can with stand everything and anything but a woman does reach a breaking point and when you have lost a good woman, to find the next good woman will take a while. A woman is one of the most complex beings on this earth and we can’t blame them for being so complex because they have to endure being daughters, mothers, sisters and guardians and the way society treats them is not the best and they have built this wall around them that they say something else but really mean something else to not appear weak or misleading in our eyes. Women they truly keep us grounded and stable.

 

Here are some of the advices that EZM Magazine have given for you to practise on how to cater for her better.

 

Attention: Women are more likely to cheat because of the lack of attention that their partner is giving them and will seek it in other men. When she is talking, try to listen as much as possible and pay as much detail as you possibly can. It is the small things that she will say that she will want you to remember and pay attention to. When she says something, always repeat the word, she will know that you are listening.

 

Encouragement: Any man want a woman is who independent, secure and strong in her belief but the world does and will not always give her this chance to showcase her talents or be herself. You can always encourage your woman by telling her how strong she is, why you are with her and she is as strong as the most powerful African queen that there has been.

 

Presents: Women love to be surprised and taken away. If you have a woman who loves music and art, write her a poem, buy her the CD of her favorite musician and if she is into sports, get her something that will encourage her to love the sport and also perform the sport. Women love gifts and presents, you will never go wrong on this one.

 

TLC: The 2nd thing a woman really wants is some love and affection. You have to take a bit extra time to cuddle her,hug her, kiss her and hold her in your arms. No matter how big, small, position a woman will get in life, she only wants to be held in the arms of her man who will ensure her that she is safe and she is where she is supposed to be.

 

I love you: These three words should be constantly said and acted upon. A woman will need to hear you tell her that YOU love her and you should show it in your actions. Once in a while, during that Monday morning or Friday night, text her or call her to say that ” I love you”

 

With these small steps and knowledge that you now have, we hope that it will help you in your relationship
