Amidst growing challenges in recent times, the wife of the Delta State Governor, Dame Edith Okowa has harped on the need for everyone to live with eternity in view.
She made the call during the sixth edition of the annual Mothers Arise programme held yesterday at the Government House chapel, while asserting that a higher spiritual awakening was needed to ensure life-long victory.
Espousing this year’s programme themed, “Faith for all Seasons”, the wife of the Governor emphasized the need for everyone to live with the consciousness of a life after now.
“There is a life after here and if we must live and end well, we must live with eternity in view. Let our actions and inactions be guided by the knowledge of the fact that everyone would be rewarded for their actions, whether right or wrong”.
She used the opportunity to admonish everyone to continue to observe the Covid19 protocol, explaining that the virus, though deadly, could be contained by observing the laid down covid19 guidelines.
The guest speaker, Pastor Blessing Amaechi, in her opening sermon emphasized the need for everyone to exercise faith so as to overcome the challenges of present times.
“You need faith to understand that you were created for a purpose. As women, we should understand that we are the hope of our world.
“If we are able to put ourselves in order and perform the assignment given to us, most of the problems in our world today would be non-existent”
She enjoined women to take their spiritual calls more seriously than before, affirming that God is never tired of showing himself faithful in the lives of the called.
Using several live testimonies, Pastor Blessing charged the heart of everyone present, affirming that with faith in place, nothing is too difficult for God to do.
The annual event which is essentially characterized by prayers and supplications for families, the church, state and nation, attracted top profile women including wife of the former Governor of the state, Deaconess Roli Uduaghan.
Other dignitaries who were present include the state commissioner for Women Affairs, Mrs. Flora Alantan, her Permanent Secretary and Director General, O5 Initiative, Mrs. Oghenekevwe Agas, Director General, Delta State Capital Territory Development Agency, Hon Onyemaechi Mrakpor, amongst others.
