Mr. Uzodinma Kanu! On this September 27, the day you were gifted to our world, I celebrate YOU.

I join my friend your courageous wife - Pearl Kanu and your blessed children to honour the gift you are. You remain a blessing to your wife, your children, your clan and indeed your public, including me.

I heard of your values and virtues well ahead of meeting you. When I met you during a book presentation in honour of my beloved husband, you were above the modest description. I saw a man who respected women, and support women to rise above the odds. You were there to support your wife and to show that you were standing strong with me, her friend. You showed up and showed hand via donation.

Your honesty make your record outstandingly unblemished in corporate employment and in entrepreneurship. No man or woman has accused you of taking or trampling... Your life story remains exemplary for your children and all who come to hear of you.

You survived with stories of victories including an accident that almost took your life years ahead. We are grateful that you were granted a painless passage when The Sovereign God called you away from this world. Your wife, children, family, friends and fans rose to celebrate YOU!

You are a man worthy of honour and accolades, who has a legacy of greatness. Proverbs 13:22: “A good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children.” You remain a galvanizer, a rallying point… You were loved and remain loved. We have received the courage to yield to healing, knowing that the memories you blessed us with remain sunshine to us and to our world.

On this 72nd celebration of your birth, we miss your presence but honour your greatness. Sleep on Great Being.

The Sovereign God

Shared by Pearl Kanu on September 27, 2021
The Sovereignty of God

It is a FACT that God is SOVEREIGN by incontestable right. The ultimate source of immeasurable power and transformational authority is unquestionable but limitlessly loving (1 John 4:16, Ephesians 3:18, Lamentation 3:22). Some argue about God’s sovereignty but considering humans are yet to discover how to create breath, brain or bowel, such audacity should be ignored. Assaults on humans like heart attack, diabetes, hypertension,cholera, conjunctivitis are reminders that man is fallible and would bend or break when the natural order of things are tampered with. Nature was tampered with in Eden when humans trusted Satan. This brought historical trauma on humanity (Romans 5:12). What we eat, drink, say, do, where we go, how we live etc. decrease longevity God served humanity at creation. The wise know that God is ABSOLUTELY SOVEREIGN. Why?

Revelation 22:13 “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.” Today we commit our brother back to the earth from which he was created. We return his body into creation. His soul is already with The Creator.

"That God hears your prayer does not mean He will heed. He is not your genie, HE IS GOD. Know and accept His power, purpose, position and place as THE CREATOR." 
                                                                                                    ~ Dr. Omolola Omoteso

May our minds be safeguarded from depression that comes with departure of beloved. I spoke to him. We prayed for healing. We expected healing. Like you, I have questions but who do we ask? Jesus is the answer.

Was it enemies that sneaked in? Did God call him away from life’s labour? In time revelations will unfold and confirmations will follow. If God made it happen, can we question him? Can we change God’s ABSOLUTE SOVEREIGNTY?

Grief does not get better with days but time will shed more light and grant us the liberty to move ahead. We can only do so sanely IF we take on the courage to be consoled, comforted and healed. As loved ones, we have done our part while he yet lived. However the ceremonies to celebrate his life turns out, remember you did your part. What more you could have done, does not exist now. Trying to conjure it will drain and depress you.

Final is never final. Closure does not come with death or with funeral. Words will play back, worries will step in, queries will follow, endless questions may never be answered and those unguided and unguarded may walk into quagmire...

But God remains God. God creates. God completes. God controls. God commands. God calls. God counsels. God connects. God crushes. God concludes. God comforts. God confirms. Remember Proverbs 4:23, and continue to meditate on Psalm 23 especially 4.

We are here because we received the gift of our brother’s life. We are here because a great man departed and earth is depleted because of his absence. We are here because a man of family who held on to faith has been called off to eternity. His epitaph could read, “Here rests a great man.” What will yours read?
