Unleashing the power within me.

On the train, going to school, got bored and decided to open my bible app. To be honest, sometimes I open it for the fun, just to keep my streak going. You know the Youversion (bible app) give you streaks for studying the word everyday. Today, I opened the book of Matthew and boom chapter 25. I think I was led my the Holy Spirit because there were some revelations revealed to me. While walking to the train station, I was just talking to myself (I do this quite often when I’m alone). I was evaluating myself and how much progress I have made so far in this year. Yea, I’m sure you would say we are barely in the second month of the year. Well, my motto for this year is “I am not doing mediocre things, because I am better than an average…”. Genuinely searching within myself, I knew I was not working the motto 100 percent, so I have to do better. I said a quick prayer “Lord teach me what and how to do things better than an average”. Now, in the train I’m studying Matthew 25, getting to verse 14 through 30. And I’m like mmmmhhh, preach! You know how we do it when our local pastor trigger our souls with their teachings lol. Well, I begin to get revelations from these verses. Let me share them with us.

1.) We have all been given one, two, three or more talents by the maker; now the question is are we aware of the or these talents? If yes, are we using them as intended by our maker. It is very important we find our talent/gift. My definition of talent is something you are so good at doing, love doing and find joy and passion while doing it. Passion is the beginning of achievements.

2.) You have to believe yourself; verse 19 of the chapter reads that the third servant took that one talent/gift and hid it. From my understanding, I think the servant did not believe in himself to work the talent/gift that was given to him. So he thought he would just let it be. This is what happens when we don’t believe in ourselves. We let our gift just lay dormant within us, when we should be working it.

3.) Believe in your potential/gifts that you have if you know it; if the third servant believed in himself, he would have been able to believe in one gift that was given to him. And he would have been able to work it so it can yield him more gifts or opened doors of greatness and blessings him like the other two servants. The other two servant who worked their got blessed by the King. This is what God does for us when we work with what He has given to us.

4.) Not working your potential/talent/gift is a SIN; verse 30 reads that the unprofitable servant was casted into greater darkness and there was weeping and gnashing of teeth. I’m trying not to sound harsh, but the truth is, if you don’t work your potentials or gifts to life and fulfillment, God will ask you about it on the judgement day. I pray we don’t go to hell because we didn’t work our gifts into fulfilling God’s purpose.

5.) Avoid negative people and naysayers; the type of people we keep around us have influence on us. Stay away from people who don’t believe in you and in your dreams.

6.) Stay away from sin; sins prevent us from fulfilling God’s purpose in our lives. It can also cause us to extend the time of our blessings and breakthrough.

7.) Spend quality time with God; this is of utmost importance. When we spend time with our maker, He is sure to reveal our talent(s) to us. Strengthen our minds, so we can believe in ourself and the talents/gifts He has given to us. Let us know if we are using our talent in the way He intended. Help us filter negative friends from our lives. Most of all help us not to fall into temptation.

Sometimes working our talent/potential/gift is what brings the breakthrough we have been longing for.

Inspired by the Holy Spirit from Matthew 25: 14-30.

My INDESCRIBABLE GOD (part 1)

  
If there was really words for my God, I honestly do not have them.

You see, my brain is not yet reached the point where it can form a THOUGHT that can adequately describe the GREATNESS of my GOD!

My lungs are yet to develop the ability to release the breath of enough agility to breathe out the GREATNESS of HIS LOVE.

My voice is so inhibited, restrained by human limits that it is so hard to sing the praises and worship to HIM.

If there was words for HIM, then I don’t have them. 
My God

HIS GRACE is REMARKABLE

HIS MERCIES are INNUMERABLE

HIS STRENGTH is IMPENETRABLE

HE is HONORABLE, ACCOUNTABLE, FAVORABLE

HE is UNSEARCHABLE, yet KNOWABLE

INDEFINABLE, yet APPROACHABLE

INDESCRIBABLE yet so PERSONAL.
HE is beyond comprehension, further than imaginations, constant through generations, KING of every nations

My words are so few in trying to capture the ONE TRUE GOD.

Using my vocabulary will never do, yet I have to use words as an expression of worship to my SAVIOR.

My SAVIOR, who is worthy and deserving of my praise

My heart extols the LORD, blesses HIS HOLY NAME forever

The LORD has won my heart, captured my mind and bounded both together

The LORD defeated me in my rebellion, conquered me in my sins

HE welcomed me into HIS PRESENCE, completely invited me in

HE made HIMSELF the object of my sight

Flooding me with HIS GREAT MERCIES in the morning

Immersing me with HIS MIGHTY FAVOR at noon

Drowning me with HIS SUFFICIENT GRACE in the night

Yet I still have no words for MY GOD…

BLACK FRIDAY

Size forty one

Yesterday, the sun forgot to shine on Paris
The clouds held rain from Ethiopia
Japan was shaken to its roots
Nigeria remains in denial
And Lebanon cannot sleep

It seems the nights are no longer lit by the stars
Even the moon seems to have fallen asleep
The days are filled with screams of disbelief
At the infinite cruelty of the heart of man

The earth is spinning on itself and rolling over
Like a gambler’s dice carefully tossed
To determine the next nation, the next war,
It’s a game of chance

The prince of this world ravages on
Roaring, seeking whom he may devour
Leaving a trail of broken bones
Stirring up in the hearts of men
The power to hate and propagate evil

We’re tempted to believe the illusion that
Darkness is winning
And God is asleep,
Oblivious to our pain

Like a woman in labour,
Earth groans…

PRAYER!!!

I’m not sure why I chose this Topic. Maybe, because I have been thinking of how to step up in my spiritual growth with Christ and praying is an essential part of it.

What is Prayer?. I believe, most people have different definition for prayer but in the midst of all of these different definitions, we would realize that, it emphasizes on one thing “Coming to the presence of God”.

Prayer is the practice of the presence of God. Prayer is the place, where we admit our needs, adopt humility and declare our dependence upon God. Prayer is the needful practice of all Christians. It is the point where, we exercise our faith and hope. Prayer, gives us the privilege of touching the heart of our heavenly Father, God, through His son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Even the bible says “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” (James 4:8).

Now, when is the right time to pray? Wait! Is there really a right time to pray? Honestly, there’s no right time for anything, just pray always! 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 “Pray without Ceasing”. In other words, we should always pray every time and at every place. In your bedroom, while walking, when you wake up, when taking a shower, while driving, on the bus to work, school… everywhere, anywhere and at any time.

Prayer is a way of life, we should continually be in an attitude of prayer at all times. Pray when you have, pray when you lack. Pray when the sun is shinning, pray when the rain is falling. Pray when you are happy, pray when you are sad. Pray when everything is going as planned, pray when things are not going the way you want it. Pray when you are healthy, pray when you are sick. Pray when you overcome temptation, pray when you get tempted and fall in it. Pray when you experience good and beautiful things, pray when you experience bad and ugly things. Pray when you are going through challenges, pray when you overcome challenges. Pray when you win, pray when you loose. Pray for the poor, the sick, the needy, the helpless, the homeless. Pray for your country, the country where you live, your family, your neighbors, the church, your pastor…Pray without hypocrisy (Matthew 6:5-8). Also, we should be careful, what we pray for, learn to pray for the right things and not selfish prayers. I pray, God teach us and lead us right, Amen!

My Scars, My lessons and My Blessings!

Today, I add a new year to my years and I am so excited about it.

Today, I wear my scars with so much pride because they brought me life lessons.

These life lessons I used to be afraid to share but now I’m not afraid to share because they brought my blessings.

Blessings that are beyond my expectations and imaginations and more blessings coming…

Well, let me just share a few with you;

If it was not for crashing my head when living too fast, I would never have learned to take life slowly.

If it was not for the wrong turns, I would never have known which way was right.

If it was not for the fake love I got from people, I would never have learned to love myself.

If it was not for the few friends who betrayed me in the past, I would have never got to know that I should be my own bestfriend.

If it was not for the wrong boys I have been with, I would never have appreciated the good ones that later came through and most importantly, the awesome one that I have right now. (I love you, my darlling).

If it was not for the days of being broke and finanacial hardship, I would have never got to know it was wiser to save for rainy days.

If it was not for rejections, I would never have learned to embrace myself.

If my secrets were not leaked via my friends, I would never have learned to be my own confidant.

If I was not tagged as “fake” “bad” “shady” and the likes, I would never have learned to strive harder to be the realest version of me and to be a better person everyday.

If it was not for the undeserved treatment I got from some people, I would never have known that I deserve the best.

If it was not for God, I would not have know that I needed to pray and praise God at all times.

I could go on and on and on and on…

I know to some people, I am the wrong girl and the person they ever met, but wouldn’t they have been worse if they were in my shoes for some actions I took? (I’m just saying).

And to some, I’m the most awesome person they ever met. Thanks to these people that saw the positive part of me.

Do not be afraid to wear your scars after any defeat. No one can use your flaws against you, If you greatly embrace them. Just because each scar comes with a lesson, and in every lesson there’s a BLESSING!

Be You!

yourself

Do you know that the best thing you can ever do for yourself, is to love yourself and do you. Self love is very awesome! One of the things I have learned about the society is that; you can never always fit in. And the hardest battle you will ever fight, is the battle of just being you. You don’t have to always fit into other people’s way of life just to feel among.

One thing, I know for a sure is that; not everyone will truly understand who you really are. No matter what you do, some people will never take you serious and will always overlook you. Worry less because that is normal! You are not made for everyone. We are different people with different perspectives about life.

You should learn to live by your own values and beliefs. Know your worth and what you are living for. Never feel like you owe anyone anything. Do not give people the opportunity to steal your happiness from you, with their own opinions. Stay real, true and happy always!

The fact remains that no matter what you do and how real you are, some people will still see you as “fake”. They do not see the real you because of what they have heard about you or probably because they refused to get know who you really are. Not to worry child, I always tell myself that, those kind of people are not designed to see the real me and not everyone can handle my type of greatness (You should use this too). Make sure you stay loyal to the people who are worth it but be careful because you might never get that it.

You don’t always have to prove yourself to people neither should you fight too hard to win a spot in anyone’s life. Truth be told, true love and true friendships come natural, you don’t have to fight for it. People who truly want you as part of their lives and not for the sake of benefiting from you, would gladly accept you for you with all your flaws and imperfections. Don’t change so people will like you. Be yourself and the right people will love the real you.

Set the people who treat you with certain limits FREE! LET THEM GO!!!

Move on, if you feel you are not wanted by someone. There’s so much in you, that you would not always need a certain people around to make you feel good, happy or better about yourself. Be good to people always, but do not waste your time trying to prove that to anyone. Save your energy for the ones who truly appreciate you. Surround yourself with like minds and awesome people like you. If you don’t find, stay alone and never feel lonely because you are really not alone.

Love yourself, treat yourself like the best thing that has ever happened to you. It takes a lot to love oneself, but you have to keep loving yourself because self love is a great source of strength and happiness from within. Nothing makes you more confidant and fulfilled than that! You are good enough for you. BElieve in YOUrself, BE YOU!
