And It's Time to Reach Out and Bless a Fellow Reader!

To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.

When God takes something from your grasp, he's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.

It's time to REACH OUT and bless a fellow reader, guys. Time to be our brother's keeper... Time to bless the new week of that reader of your choice. Trust me, prayers go a long a way, especially prayers for someone. It shows selflessness and love and we need a lot of love in our world today.

Today where evil takes the very fore, love is the only medicine we need to defeat this.

So dearies, who do you wanna reach out to tonight?

Lady is Confused - She's in a Bad Marriage; Former Love Who Recently Lost His Wife Wants Her Back Badly

Please post only comments that are useful, helpful, constructive and practical. 
I am 32 and presently in a very bad marriage. I got married in 2008. There is this guy in my church I knew before I ever thought of meeting hubby, who has been a very good friend (platonic ), though he wanted a relationship back then but because I was very young and scared of my parents, I rejected him. 
He wanted a relationship with me again during my UNI days but I refused cause he looks like a playboy to me. 2 years back, he started pressurizing me for a relationship again, though he lives abroad. 
Unfortunately, he lost his wife in January, and for the past 4 months he has been disturbing me to leave hubby for him. Matter of fact, I'm beginning to have feelings for him but I'm so scared. Remember I said he looked like play boy to me back then cause he is too handsome. 
I need mature advise on this as I don't know if I can cope with him or just stay put with hubby and keep on hoping for the best.

BREAKING: INEC Formally Declares Yahaya Bello Winner of Kogi Gov Election

Yahaya Bello, the substitute governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has formally been declared the winner of the Kogi state governorship election.

In the supplementary poll on Saturday, Bello won 6,885 votes to take APC’s unassailable lead to 247,742, while the incumbent governor, Idris Wada, got 5,363 votes, taking PDP’s total to 204,877.

Bello was nominated by the APC to replace Abubakar Audu, candidate of the party in the November 21 election who died as results were being collated on November 22. Audu had polled 240,861, putting the APC in the lead, while Wada secured 199,514 votes. But the election was declared inconclusive because the margin of votes (41,353) between the two leading candidates was less than the number of cancelled votes (49,953) which could theoretically affect the final outcome.

The supplementary election results showed that Bello won in 11 local government areas (LGAs) out of 19 in the state while Wada won in seven LGAs only.
