Truly Blessed

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!

You are Loved

You are loved by your creator!

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.”

Self Love – Loving Myself As God Loves Me

Self love is healthy!

Learning to love myself has been a journey!

And I am so glad to finally discover the gems within, especially after all the emotional roller coaster!

I am loving who I am discovering myself to be!

What a wonderful world!

It’s how you see, and what you make of what you see!

You must learn to extend the same grace you give to others to yourself friends

You deserve some kindness and compassion too!

That’s right!

Are you going to start being kind and ❤️to yourself?

Unknown

Perspective Upgrade

Happy New Month Friends

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.

Count your own blessings, name them one by one, and you will see that you are blessed and highly favored. Whatever that is lacking can be provided. Thank the Lord for what is already in your hands.

Do not be like Peninnah that became miserable because of Hannah’s Samuel! Thank God for your many blessings! Stop the comparison.

Create Your Own!

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.

Create and invite others to join and enjoy your creation!

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!

Shalom!

Be Happy!

The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things. Henry Ward Beecher – 1813-1887 – American Minister

You need to master yourself. Master your feelings, identify the things that gives you pleasure, the simple things of life that raises your vibration.

Friends, I pray you’ll spend time with yourself, to know yourself, love yourself as God loves you, and then you will be able to find joy in the simplest of things.

Love that person in the mirror, and you’ll learn to love others as yourself!

In God’s presence is fullness of joy! If you have Christ within you, you’ll be happy in every and all situation

You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand. Psalms 16:11

When you are happy, you are bound to bring joy to many friends! No one want to be with the perpetually gloomy one!

Learn the art of being happy! Be in His presence at all times!

Shalom!
