I am a trader in a local market, we all have individual spaces that look like matchboxes, Yet, I make millions every week. This has attracted so much envy to me, and how I wish I could shout at the top of my voice to my fellow traders that ” My Space is not their space”., “My Kingdom is not your Kingdom, My Crown is not Your crown”. My neighbour, Mrs Joy was my greatest envious rival, Her envy was eating so deep into her, that she wasnt concentrating on her business, so I decided to write her a note….

“My Space is not your space
You have your Space
I have mine
So why the Envy and the Beef
Yes I know we all want the attention
But as stars
We have our different spaces in the Sky

God in his fairness
Has created individual spaces for each person on this earth
So why are you envious of that girl who has that high pitch
Well, that is the Space God has created for her
Maybe your Space is for you to use your croaky voice to create a music style…

Your Space is Your Space
The only difference between you and the other person is their ability to make use of their space in full capacity.

In my little Space, I try to sell everything possible, that way I attract a lot of customers
Why don’t you find your selling point and get the best out of your Space.”

Mrs Joy, read my note and gave a deep breath and all she said was ” Thank you, I understand you perfectly, and I believe this note can be summarized into a Yoruba proverb that says ” THE SKY IS BIG ENOUGH FOR ALL BIRDS TO FLY, WITHOUT CLASHING INTO ONE ANOTHER”

Mrs Joy took the matter very calmly, because I had prayed before approaching her. To my utmost surprise, she added bed sheets and Duvet to what she was selling and In no time, her little space became a Goldmine….

Friends, there is the Glory of the sun, the Glory of the stars, and the Glory of the moon. No one disturbs the other.
Your destiny space is different from mine. Creatively Concentrate on your Space, while I concentrate on mine, that way we all can get the best out of our spaces. ©www.deepthotsonline.com

1 Cor 15:41 “The sun has one kind of glory, while the moon and stars each have another kind. And even the stars differ from each other in their glory”
