You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.
Jim Rohn – 1930-2009 – American Entrepreneur-Author
When the Lord turned the captivity of Zion we were like they that dreamed!
When you travel within, that is, change your mindset, grow spiritually, you will learn to celebrate your successes, dwell on your blessings, be grateful for who God is in your life, and begin to see that you are more blessed than you thought yourself to be!

Here I am about to take the stage with seasoned speakers like Warren Ryan, Christine Handy, Kev Orkian, Marco Robinson and others. You can get your tickets here http://bit.ly/FearlessspeakingJoanSanusi
I met with Warren Inspire Ryan and a host of other learners on this journey. We built a community from all over the world of like minded collaborators, collaborating in ways that I never knew was possible. We became a family and a few of us have met physically too.
We also plan to have a speaking tour of our world together very soon. At the moment, we have our Fearless Speaking Event coming up on June 25, 26, and 27th. It is a virtual event where all of us will share the stage with Seasoned Keynote Speakers like Warren Ryan, Christine Handy, Kev Orkian, Marco Robinson, and others.
I invite you all, friends and family to come and support your very own Joan Sanusi by getting your tickets and get some for your friends and acquaintances. Make it a date to support and cheer me and my teammates on as we step on world stages to make impact.
I implore you to to examine your perspective to life friends. Your joy, happiness and fulfillment depend greatly upon it. There is no wrong or right way, it all depend on what kind of life you want to live.
You see friends, a barren woman, after being ridiculed year after years, praying, and waiting for a miracle finally had a son. Congratulations! Wonderful you will say right? Well, that is great! However, this woman made an observation and it reflected in her prayers. This got me thinking!
You see, Hannah was her name. She finally got a child. Fantastic! She went on a frenzy praising God and so on. She noticed that someone was not happy and made mention of that person.
There are many people with truck loads of blessings that are still miserable. You wonder why? I mean, look at the statistics of people sad and with depression all over. It is alarming. And this in advance nations with seemingly everything, comfort, care, safety. and abundance!
Those who were full hire themselves out for food, but those who were hungry are hungry no more. She who was barren has borne seven children, but she who has had many sons pines away.1 Samuel 2:5
You see Hannah? She saw possibilities in that one son she has. She made a pledge even before conceiving that if God answers her prayers, she would give that child back to him. She knows that whatever is given to the Lord multiplys! Peninnah on the other hand has had many sons and never felt it necessary to give one back to the Lord. The moment Peninnah saw Hannah rejoicing for that one thing she has been blessed with, her own sorrow began.
Perspective is key to your happiness friends. The bible says rejoice with those who are rejoicing – Romans 12:15. You need to know that someone’s joy, gift, blessings, rejoicing etc is meant to evoke same in you, it should remind you of God’s faithfulness to you. It should remind you to thank God, not to start comparison which many times leads to being miserable.
Why should someone’s happiness cause you grief? You have been comparing yourself and marking that list in your mind right? Taking stocks of what you have that the other person does not have? This is the only thing that has been giving you joy? You need to stop! The fact that someone is lacking in an area that you are blessed with has been your only joy? Repent!!
Change your perspective. Stop comparing yourself.You are unique in more ways than you know. And the Lord has blessed you and will bless you more than you could ever think or imagine.
The devil created nothing except chaos. He created no being!. The creator is the Most High God, the Almighty, All, Knowing, All Seeing God. And He created YOU
Therefore, in reaching out to the world, I must let them know of this fact. The Almighty created everyone, and there’s NONE too far lost that cannot be saved. You belong to God already. Psalms 24:1 He is willing to bring you home where love reside.
I mean, until you and I, as Christians stand and speak from this premise, the love of God cannot be shed abroad in our hearts. Romans 5:5.
I know God loves me despite and inspite of me, and he loves me before I acknowledged Him as Lord. God made me fall in love with Him. I love Him now because He first loved me. 1 John 4:19
I need someone to know that you are unconditionally loved by God. You only need to acknowledge His love right now.
Friends, acknowledge God’s love for you. That situation could have been worst you know?
God’s love saved you, made a way of escape, healed you, encouraged you, gave you hope and is preserving you this moment, making room for you to acknowledge Him. Don’t let this moment pass by.
Speak to Jesus from your heart. Ask Him to help you to see Him as He is. Romans 10:10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith, your believe in Jesus that you are saved.
As many as received Him, He gave the power to become sons of God, even to them that believe in His name; John 1:12
There are so much that God want for you, and much more that He desires from you. God want you to know He loves you even before the foundation of the earth was laid.
God made provision for you through His son Jesus Christ. John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. He desires for you to believe and accept this love. It is real!
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Your loving Father has great plans for you as the above scripture stated. You however have to lean into God and His plan faithfully to be all you can be for your creator. Accept God’s love for you through Christ Jesus who died on the cross in your place. Open up your heart today, invite Jesus in as your Lord and Savior.
You will however be doing your self a favor by putting your faith into action – strategically invest in your own success.
God desires you to be proactive about His plan for your life. He is Sovereign and will fulfill the plan He has for you. Whatever dreams you have is attainable and fulfillable only in Christ Jesus! Yield your all! Embrace the love of God!
You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you – Philippians 4:13
God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them. Hebrews 6:10
35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ Read from Matthew 25:32-46
We all know the story of Jonathan and David in 1 Samuel 18 where Jonathan, heir to the throne of his father King Saul took a liking to David, a rival of sort, of his father and the throne. Jonathan ultimately died with his father, due to King Saul’s many sins and falling out of favor with Jehovah. David against all odds got to the throne and one faithful day, he remembered Jonathan. King David repaid Jonathan’s kindness to Mephibosheth, Jonathan’s sons – 2 Samuel 9:1-13
What am I implying? The Lord said seed time and harvest time shall never seize as long as the earth remains. Genesis 8:22. Good and evil remains and they both have consequences. The good you do and the bad you do, you will reap.
Christian’s in many denominations are often led incessantly to break curses, generational curses, ancestral curses, and so on that has been in their family due to the sins of their forefathers etc, without balancing it with request for heaven to repay the good that someone from this same lineage, generation past has done for and unto the Lord!
Many of us has store houses of bounties that the Lord want us to access, however, we are busy closing, and shutting the door of an empty room labelled curses that heaven has emptied out at our rebirth and the many times we have applied and pleaded the precious blood of Jesus!
This is where religion, and false preachers have kept many, in perpetual ignorance. Taking you on and off the same route and cycle of these activities and that activity without recourse. No wonder the scriptures says my people perish for lack of knowledge – Hosea 4:6
Friends, Abrahams blessings are yours because you are his seed by faith- Genesis 22:18; Galatians 3:7 understand, then, that those who believe are children of Abraham. 8 The scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: “All nations will be blessed through you.”. So also, the blessings of past generation can be yours too.
And you, yourself have labored, you have sown some good seeds in fertile ground, you have fed the Lord, comforted the Lord, and you did clothed the Lord in that sister or brother you covered their nakedness – Please note that the Lord owes no one. He will repay your good deeds. You must however, remind the Lord, not that He forgets, however, you must ask that your reward comes speedily even as this year round up.
God will yet open that store house holding your reward IF you ask. Ask and you shall receive – Matthew 7:7. Psalms 65:11 says, God will crown this year 2020 with His bounty, and your carts will overflow with abundance. Amen
