You are forgiven!You are enough! You are beautiful! You are unique! You are special! You are awesome! You are talented, equipped, endowed, appointed, anointed, accepted, appreciated, approved, admired, and you are a success! Get that right!
Now warm up your voice and sing unto the Lord!
This is food for thought for the seekers! The Void in every soul can ONLY be filled up in Christ Jesus!
An excerpt from Recapture The Wonder by Ravi Zacharias
“Wretchedness and failure understandably breed cynicism. Power and beauty, we assume, bring contentment. One has lost all hope for what he would make of his life; the other has attained the ideal. But the question emerges, Has he really? On the surface it would appear to be true. Yet I have my doubts.”
Just a few weeks ago, I started the journey of becoming a fearless speaker – an authentic and inspirational speaker. 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.
Doubt comes in at the window when inquiry is denied at the door. Benjamin Jowett – 1817-1893 – Tutor – Administrative Reformer University of Oxford
There are some tables that you and I have been prevented to sit at. Not because you and I are, or were not capable, well dressed, groomed, well spoken, or intellectual.
You and I were hindered because our wisdom, our eloquence, and grace will enlighten the ears and hearts of many.
Believe me when I say those at the table right now don’t want that! They do not want the people to be liberated! The more people are in darkness, the more they will be able to hold sway in the affairs of men.
Therefore, create your own table, call upon like minded individuals to sit with you, let the liberation of the ignorant be your focus, commit your all into it and watch heaven make room for you that no man can stop!
In Him was life, and that life was the light of ALL mankind – John 1:4
I know the Word was Christ – John 1:1, and He was life, and that life was and is the LIGHT of ALL mankind!
This tells me that everyman on the face of this earth has life, that life is light which is Christ!
You just need to acknowledge what is already in you! Christ in you! Christ is life, He is light!, Acknowledge Him!
Father, I acknowledge you as my creator, my Saviour, my life, my light, my lover, my redeemer, my hope and joy, Lord, you are my high tower that I run to, you are my shield and buckler, my provider, my sustainer, my everything!
Thank you for this insight, for the many trials, pain, shame, reproach, and the many heartaches, Lord, I am grateful for all that you permitted in my life for my greater good! I love you Lord!
I am acknowledging you as The Sovereign God! You are in charge of my life, the life you blessed me with!
Oh Lord, thank you for the many joys you fill my soul with, thank you for the many blessings, successes too numerous to mention, Daddy, I acknowledge your mighty hand that is upon me, thank you Lord!
Friends, can you see the Lord in the midst of you? He is there! See the mighty hand of God upholding you when you’d rather give up! See the many misses, the lows and the highs you’ve been through?
I just want you to take a break and acknowledge God for who He is in your life, in the midst of that difficulty, He showed up, and He is showing up, and will continue to show up for you!
