Clean hear, not clean sheet

It is not easy to hide your facial expression in the broad day light.

It is impossible to conceal your true identity and state before the all-knowing God.

You do not have to necessarily keep clean sheet and appearance before you can meet the Lord, you need a pure and humble heart.

God is not interested in your fluency, He is rather keen on your sincerity.

Our deeds are naked before the Lord, we do not have to over embellish them with words and emotions before God can see them.

May you always focus on the authentic content of your deeds, not only the flashy packaging of your deeds.

Have a Grace-filled Sunday.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau

Focus on what you can do.

When you have a hopeful attitude towards life, you do not allow yourself to be discouraged by the failures of the past. 
You rather concentrate on what you are capable of doing in the future with the painful past experience as guide and guard. 

The raw materials of ideas, strength and zeal in you today, are far valuable than the end products of failure and shame in the past.

Do not waste your time in trying to correct your shameful past. 

Invest your time in adding value to your worth to reach where you intend to be tomorrow.

May you always be moved by what you can do but do not be discouraged by what you were not able to do.

Have a blissful day.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau


Having a sledge hammer in hand does not give us the mandate to hit any protruding nail we come across.

Not all nails need to be hit deep, some need to be directed to be well positioned.

Being wise, intelligent and having rich experience do not give you the power to be giving directives and even condemning anyone you encounter.

Your advice may be insightful but it will not always be useful and it will not always be needed.

When a tool is not used for the intended purpose and at the right time it becomes useless and even destructive rather than being useful.

May you know when and how to use your gifts for the benefit of all. 

Have a blessed day.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau

Seek what is lasting, what is only lucrative.

When we only feed on delicious but junk food, we do not only obstruct our growth, we put our health in serious danger.

When we build and shape our lives only on popular and attractive but hollow ideologies and observances, we do not only lessen our chances of succeeding, we also mislead and destroy the future of  those who look up to us.

We ultimately become what we feed on. People and messages we listen to eventually direct us.

Be vigilant and  selective on the ideas and  principles you build your life on, they can make or mar your efforts to reach your goals.

May you always seek what is valuable and lasting, not what is only lucrative.

God bless you.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau


Unless the morsel in the mouth is swallowed, we cannot take any additional morsels. 

If our palm is full it is not possible to handle other things.

There are certain attitudes, habits, people and things in life, which serve as stumbling blocks, we will never grow and progress in as much as we continue keep them.

It is difficult and even heartbreaking to shun certain company, attitude and habit but it might pave way for your greatness.

The more we do away with impediments in our lives, the more we position ourselves to receive better and greater things.

To grow, try to let go certain attitude, habit and company which block your chances to succeed.

God bless you.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau

Value, not Volumes

The size of the head does not determine the size of knowledge.
We cannot determine our level of wisdom solely on the accumulated knowledge but also on the appropriate use of knowledge.

Our worth does not depend on the quantity of our deeds but on the quality and usefulness of our deeds.

A good number of ideas and plans do not automatically lead to success, useful and relevant ideas and plans do.

Do not only think of what you can say to others or do for others, take also into consideration the benefits to be reaped from your words and actions.

May you always subscribe to value rather than volumes.

Remain in the love of God.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau

Do not only seek to be inspired, seek to be challenged also…

We do not get the finest palm oil from palm fruits in cold water. We rather get it from the crushing of the fruits and the activity of hot water on the crushed palm fruits.

Motivational and inspiring words are normally read and  cherished than challenging and corrective words, which are normally unattractive.

We will never grow when we always want to be inspired but bitterly hate to be challenged.

We may not progress in life because we only enjoy the company of those who are ever ready to second and even uphold any word and proposal from us without any objection.

We might not be comfortable with those who challenge us but they normally open minds and eyes to some realities and keep us on our toes to bring the best out of us.

Do not only focus on those who will help you to move but also those who will challenge and correct your movement.

God bless you and have a fruitful week.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau


When we begin a battle with the total display and usage of all our weapons and skills, we can easily and quickly defeat a weaker opponent but our inability to defeat the opponent will energize the opponent to capitalize on our shortage of weapons and skills to defeat us.
Our efforts are reduced when we lower our zeal and our interest.

Failure does not only spring from lack of appropriate tools, resources and energy but  lack of skills to make appropriate use of  what we have.

You need a careful and conscious planning to persevere in life. 

Do not just begin, know the distance to be covered and how best you can distribute accordingly, your time energy and resources.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau

You are valuable because of your humanness..

Water is tasteless.

Water is odourless and

Water is colourless.

But water is always one of the basic and essential necessities of life. 

Water is basic to life because of its substance, not because of what is added to improve the taste and colour.

Our worth lies in our humanness, not merely on what we add  to improve our beauty and dignity.

You are valuable because you are a human being, not because of what we have  and where we are.

Never look down on yourself because of what you lack in life.

Value and accept yourself, it is one of the certain means to self improvement and greatness.

God bless you .

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau

Subscribe quality, not popularity…..

‚ÄčA product with high publicity does not make it the best in the market. The content of the product determines its quality not its publicity.

Having a huge audience to listen to your message does not merely  make you a great and finest speaker. Best speakers spring from the quality of their message not the popularity of their messages enjoy.

Do not be carried away by your fame. What makes us famous is what matters most.

As there are fake products with high publicity, there are also unadvertised good products.

If you are fortunate to come to the limelight do not look down on those whose great works are unseen and unheard. 

Do not just trust, accept and support personalities, products, ideologies and messages due to their popularity but due to their quality and relevance.

May you not confuse popularity with quality.

God bless you.
