The 7 Life Lessons From My Mother

Hello, this is the SECRET MOMENT with Rotimi Adedokun. I am a pastor, life coach, inspirational speaker, and counselor. Today, I will be sharing with you The 7 Secrets That My Mother Taught Me (Late Mrs. Grace O. Adedokun). If you are new to this channel, please subscribe now and turn on the bell notification button so you can be alert anytime we upload a new video. If you ready let’s get started.

1. The Responsibility Of Good Parenting
Good parent ensures their children are taught. Never bring to this world the children that you don’t have the capacity to train. Your Children’s outlook and personalities are reflections of the type of parent that you are. Only a useless parent careless about the welfare of their children. No child can outgrow parental care. Until your children are established, you should never relax on your responsibilities to them. Train and follow up, follow up, watch them, and watch them until they are successful.

2. Becoming A Good Husband
The joy and the secret of a woman are in the hands of a real, responsible, and mature man. Be everything that your wife needs she said. No woman is beautiful than the level of care that she can receive. If you can give your wife the best, you will receive nothing from her but the best. The beauty of a woman is directly proportionate to the level of peace, care, and joy her husband can make available, bestow, and unleash on her.

3. Build A Strong Relationship And Serve God
Rotimi, I asked God to give me a male child at the low point of my life, at the edge of losing my marriage, and God answers me that was why I named you Oluwarotimi and Samuel. Therefore, you cannot afford not to know and serve God she said. I ask you from God like Hannah and I have dedicated you to Him. You cannot live your life without acknowledging the one who gives it. You must know and serve God; these are the essence of living. John Lennox said the essence of life is enjoyment, my mother said the essence of life is knowing and serving God. I think I will go with my mother.

4. Don’t Trust in Your Parent Wealth, because Greatness Is NOT TRANSFERABLE
Whatever you don’t labor to get or work with your hands will never last. Inheritance is will soon become a weight that will soon crash on those who believe in it. Nothing great in life is transferable. If you ever have a wealth transfer to you, you must be ready to double up and work hard to keep it. Hard work is the real wealth she added. If you want something to last, you must be ready to work for it. Those who still linger around our single-family property in Lagos, Nigeria, know that nothing transferable is enough.

5. Make Hay While The Sun Shines
Whatever that you cannot do on time, will not reward you in real-time. Twenty children cannot play for twenty years, don’t settle with people that you are seeing now. If you want to wear the crown you must separate yourself from the crowd and run your own race. Refuse to be comfortable, look straight ahead of you, and see ahead of others, thereby making you live a more serious and determined life. You are a man Rotimi, she said, you are also my son. I need you to take life seriously and get the best of the season that life presents to you Now. If you want to get the best of life, you must be ready, before success knocks at your door.

6. Always Follow Peace And Be Strong
The hearts of men are desperately wicked. Don’t underestimate people who don’t know God. They don’t have a future, so they are ready to truncate the future of others. Settle with people and be at peace. Don’t use your useful time to fight, when you can use the same time to buildup yourself if you are at peace with your enemy. Know your wrongs, ask for forgiveness, forgive yourself, and detach from your past errors. Don’t hang around people who will amplify your error and downgrade your success. They are on a mission to judge you, don’t give them attention, and don’t allow their expectations to become your outcome.

7. Don’t Loan The Money That You Cannot Let Go
She said you will never know the real person that you are dealing with unless money is involved in your relationship. She continued, money has a mouth, money is a spirit and money can create the problem that your hands cannot handle. Don’t allow money to get between you and anybody. People can do anything for the sake of money. Don’t cheat people and let go if they cheat you. You can never have peace with someone who lost to you in court. Therefore, refuse to initiate a necessary unending war, on a mission to take away your peace.

On This Very Day 2019

Letter to my Mother: Happy Birthday Mummy

I am a believer and I believe in the Word because is God’s inspired. However, anytime I stumbled on the Hebrew 9:27 that says, “It is appointed for a man to die once…” I get angry because I wish that scripture is not applicable to my mother. Unfortunate, God is not a respecter of a person (Acts 10:34).

From my studies, I have come to the understanding that there are five levels of womanhood. They are as follows: Girl, lady, wife, mother, and grandmother. A female is born a girl, grow to be a lady, become someone’s wife by choice, conceive, and deliver a child or children. Producing another mother is what qualifies her to be a grandmother. There are many girls, several ladies, a few wives, but mothers are scarce. Of course, without a mother, the position of a grandmother is not in view. The above is what reminds me of the famous proverb in the south-west of Nigeria, that says, “Iya ni wura, Baba ni jigi.” Translation, “Mother is gold; and Father is a Mirror.” Five years ago, I lost my gold (my mother) and since, I never recover from that shock that my mother could leave this world on a journey of no return.

As it is easy to buy a mirror from the store, but you have to be very prepared to obtain magnificent gold. This is the secret; neither a real mother can be found on the street, nor can it be purchased for money. Good mothers are God’s gift that cannot be quantified by money. May 20th of every year is when I wish I could be around you and celebrate your birthday, but unfortunately, your situation is beyond what I can comprehend. I wish God could spare your life to this day. Although, with God’s help, I have been able to carry myself well and attracted tremendous and many women to my life. Ranges from the former, vice president of Oral Robert University, to the mother-in-law of Pastor David Oyedepo Jr’s wife and other great women of reputations. However, nor could take the place of Grace Oluyanbo Adedokun. In 2012, when I was leaving for the United States of America, I can remember vividly, when she saw me off to the Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos State, Nigeria. She prayed the prayer that Isaac prayed for Jacob upon me. How I wish, she could pray it again.

Mrs. G. O Adedokun taught me life, how to live, and carry myself. She shared things that she never discussed with any of my sisters. Many people have called me their son, but they know their real biological son, while I know my biological mother. This is the secret; a good woman will never forget the day of her labor. The agony and discomfort that she experiences during labor. The unpleasant condition that she finds herself and the unbearable pain before, during, and after birth. When My wife and I had our second and third children, I was left with my wife; nobody could help I have to do all that I saw my mother did to my siblings during their birth. It was then that I released that I don’t have my gold anymore. I can remember when some people called in to give valid excuses for their failure to come to help out. However, I know someone who will never present any reason, but she will ensure that she makes it and come to my rescue; her name is Mrs. Adedokun.

I wish
I wish she still here again
I wish she could even call my name again
I wish she could share some of her wisdom again
I wish she could sell her gold to get me on the go again
I wish she could let go of her needs to meet my own needs again
I wish she could write my name down in the Bible and pray for me again

On this day of every year, I will forever be grateful to God for the womb that conceived me, the breast that fed and the hands that nurtured me. Mama Jeje, Mama Ni Israeli, Mama Oluwarotimi. She is not General Overseer, but her initial is G. O. I pray that heaven will find you worthy, and may your good record speaks for you on the day of Judgement. Your irreplaceable virtues, love, and zeal for the things of God will be forever be remembered, and your personalities virtuous speak to all generation.

From your Only Son. Oluwarotimi (God Stands With Me).

…be inspired, live an abundant life and help others.
