“Love your neighbour as yourself.”
If you meditate on this verse you’ll realize the Bible didn’t say love your neighbour MORE than you love yourself. But love them AS you love yourself.
We live in times where so many people are just giving too much to others and at the end leave nothing for themselves.
For example, there’s people who keep giving so much affection to people who don’t even care about them and they think that’s okay.
Constantly running after people in other to have them love or accept them. They give so so much and at the end are left disappointed because others don’t even care or reciprocate and then they start blaming others and getting all hurt. But when you think of it, the reality is that they’re being treated that way by choice.
We have people who are trying to fit in places where they don’t belong around people who couldn’t care less of what they’re lives would turn into if they stopped trying.
It’s a fair game to respect someone who respects you. It’s a fair game to call people who call you. It’s a fair game to visit people who visit you and that doesn’t mean we can’t give, It simply means our selfs should be treated and loved the way we love others.
Love people who want you to love them!
Be inspired and go figure .
God bless you.
THOSE ON A MISSION: Step out
In life there’s two kinds of people:
There’s you and then there’s them!
But there’s also two types of Christians, there’s those who believe in Jesus and then there’s those who are on a mission for Jesus (men and women of God)
Which one are you?
Which one do you want to be ? And which one has God CALLED you to be ?
If God is calling you to become a man or woman of God, do what He’s calling you to do. Surrender! Please
Think about think and be inspired
God bless you
BREAK UP WITH YOUR DEMONS
It’s almost 2017 and this year has taught me the importance and power of breaking up with my mindset.
If you look at yourself, you’ll realize that there’s already a certain image of your person that’s been either created by a negative situation you faced in your past or by the people you once associated yourself with.
This mindset has unconsciously become your identity and you may not even realize it but it’s the reason to why you’re not reaching a different level or stage of your life. It feels like you’re bounded by this demon and you want to escape but unfortunately, you don’t know how to…
It is important for all of use humans to come to a stage of our lives where we’ll need to fight all these small negative voices that keep bugging us. These voices do not define you. These voices aren’t the truth. These voices won’t help you. There here to destroy you!
And what you need to do is STOP entertaining them. Break up with your demons!
Refuse to enter a new year with the same mindset. As much as it impacted and hurt you, you need to get to a point where you’ll just have to write a whole new chapter and start all over. Regardless of what it looks like to others, do everything in your power to be happy.
I don’t know what it is, a job, a place, a person, an environment, a belief system, a tradition, a culture etc… if it doesn’t bring you peace and no longer makes you happy: BREAK UP WITH IT.
You’re demons will never stop fighting you.
It’s up to you to spot them and break up with them before they destroy you!
I once tried to drown my demons. I forgot they knew how to swim
God bless you
AT THIS POINT OF YOUR LIFE
At this point of your life, if they’re not helping you grow….
If they’re not making you happy…
If they’re not bringing anything positive in your life…
If they’re not building you up…
If they don’t respect you…
If they’re presence in your life doesn’t make it brighter…
Then, DONT MAKE TIME FOR THEM!!!
Stay away from people who don’t believe in you: That’s the beginning of faith.
Stay away from people who don’t appreciate you: That’s the beginning of self appreciation.
Stay away from people who don’t love you: That’s the beginning of self love.
Stay away from people who don’t help you grow spiritually, mentally or emotionally:That’s then beginning of growth.
Stay away from people you don’t need: People who serve NO purpose in your life.
The quality of your current life is strongly impacted by the kind of people you surround yourself with.
In life there’s two kinds of people. There’s YOU and then there’s THEM!!!
God bless you
REALITY IS NOT THE TRUTH
Just because you see something doesn’t mean it is what it is. Just because you feel negative about yourself or a situation you’re facing doesn’t make it a fact.
Just because you’re going through something ugly doesn’t make it your destiny.
Just because you see a clouded sky doesn’t mean the sun is not hiding behind.
I encourage you to not give up on life. Everything will be okay. God will make a way. Give it time and remember it’s only TEMPORARY.
There’s no such thing as a Christian with a PERFECT relationship with JESUS. Everyone falls short but not everyone gets back up.
I encourage you to stand for God. If you fall stand back up. This battle will ALWAYS continue as long as we will be alive.
You are not the sins you do. You are not your mistakes. You are a child of God and theres nothing nobody will ever do to take that identity away from you. Always remember these words:
Gods child will always be His child.
DONT GIVE UP ON GOD
God bless you.
EMOTIONAL VISUAL GOGGLES
Today as I was walking down the streets I was paying close attention to everyone around me. Different people from different cultures and beliefs…just different in many way.
I sat and observered families and friends gathered around tables with smiles on their faces in food courts and I thought that that was actually very beautiful.
But then, I asked myself what if I actually had an emotional visual goggle?
What if I had the power to dig deep down each ones heart and see for real what truly was hidden behind those smiles?
Because the reality is that everyone in life is pretty much trying to survive this journey. We have more people existing and few living…
Everyone is going through something and some of these situations are unknown by many.
People hide their pains because they think its easier to live that way, they don’t wanna be a burden to anyone…some are just completely lost and confused.
But what if you had those emotional visual goggles…what would you do? Everytime you saw how dead someone was inside ? If you saw how destroyed someone was?
Would you be kind or rude? Would you be selfish or caring? Would you care? Would you help? What would you do?
And how would that make you feel to think that someone in this world is a walking dead soul because of something you said or did to them?
We can’t call ourselves Christians and lack empathy!
Life is an ongoing journey that ends once we start existing more than we start living.
So many dead people walking out there. Be the reason to why someone is living.
Be INSPIRED to make the world a better place. BE KIND!
God bless you.
GOD IS NOT A DICTATOR: CHOICES
Back in the days I use to think that everything that happened to us in life was meant to happen.
But then I’ve realized that just because something happened to you doesn’t mean it HAD to happen or just because something is happening to you doesn’t mean it HAS to happen.
Many people are stuck in situations year after year with no progress/escape and using God as an excuse to why they’re so unhappy and miserable.
God is not the author of unhappiness. When you’re stuck in a unhappy situation for years thinking or saying that God put you there and He’s gonna get you out, you’re pretty much saying God chose to make you unhappy; that’s NOT God.
A lack of wisdom is the result to why many people are unhappy in life. We all need wisdom!
We need to choose what’s right for us. God is not a dictator, there’s no such thing as God imposing anything on us especially if it makes us unhappy. We got a choice to make for everything in life. Everything we are today is a result of the kind of choice we made. And choices have consequences.
You are where you are in life by choice. And if you don’t like being there, make a different choice. Different results will only come once you make a different choice. Do something you’ve never done before. Try something new. It’s all worth it.
Refuse to believe that its Gods will for you to be stuck in something ugly.
Make a different choice today or else it will always be this way.
God bless you.
IT’S OKAY TO NOT FEEL OKAY
You know what? Often in life we are told that we shouldn’t feel a certain way because someone has it worst. But if that was truly the case, it would also mean that we shouldn’t be feeling happy because someone else is obviously happier than us.
What this means is that, all the negative emotions that we humans get to feel is SUPPOSED to be felt. We wouldn’t value happiness without sad days. We wouldn’t value peace without anxious days. We wouldn’t value joy without painful days.
So my friend, my advice to you is to let it out. Everytime you’re feeling a certain way EXPRESS it and LET IT OUT. Cry if you need to. It’s normal.
There’s nothing wrong with talking about how you feel.
You’re human and this flesh is weak. It’s okay to not feel okay.
God bless you.
I was talking to a friend who’s having serious relationship issues. I had a 29 years old woman balling her eyes out trying to make more and more excuses to stay in an expired relationship.
You know friends, a person who loves you will never put themselves in a position to lose you. Someone who loves you will respect you and treat you right. Stop being naive and thinking that just because someone says they love you means they do. Look at their actions. The way they treat you is a reflection of how they feel about you regardless of what they tell you.
If you continuously have to tell a grown up adult that their behaviour is not ok, if you constantly have to teach them basics lessons of morality then know that thats a big red flag waving at you to get your attention.
God is love and so is he peace
When you get to a point where love is no longer bringing you peace, comfort or happiness. Know that God is no longer there.
Respect yourself enough to walk away from every single person in your life who doesn’t respect you. At the end of the day it’s their loss not yours.
And the only one you should feel like you can’t live without is God. Everyone else can be REPLACED. It’s all a matter of TIME and CHOICE.
Wake up people, have enough wisdom to leave all these expired relationships. Love yourself more and remember that God has something better in store for you.
There’s only one person who can put an end to something ugly. And thats YOU. Make a choice and change your life. Staying is a choice but so is leaving.
God bless you.
MAKE PEACE WITH YOUR PAST
If you drive a car looking in the rearview mirror, eventually you might get hurt.
Be thankful for the wounds that you have in your heart cause wounds turn into scars and scars into wisdom.
Healing is the process of learning to live while being damaged; The acceptance of being damaged.
So here are few tips:
Face how you feel about what happened. Morn the loss of who you were before (forgive yourself) and acknowledge what lesson you learned from it (wisdom). At that point you will realize you are a survivor of your past and know you are stronger and smarter because of it. After that the pain will ease with time and you will rise to claim your right to happy again. You will begin to see life from a better angle.
And yes you will still have days when it still hits you but you should take advantage of those to find ways of getting rid of the anger thats still in there.
Write what you feel, it’s therapeutic.
because you have the CHOICE… even though it truly does not seem like it, you can chose to OUTGROW what really happened in your past. You have the power to make that change.
God Bless you
Support doesn’t always come from familiar faces.
So don’t be surprised when God places strangers on your path to get you to higher places.
Don’t be surprised if your growth makes your circle small.
Sometimes the best way to add to your life is not to add to it, but to subtract what no longer produces growth.
It’s not about the size of your circle. It’s about the loyalty thats in it.
If people are causing you to be in pieces instead of bringing you peace, you need to tell them peace.
Real people don’t have a lot of friends:
STOP ENTERTAINING PEOPLE WHO DONT ADD ANYTHING POSITIVE TO YOUR LIFE.
God bless you.
POPULARITY IS NOT SUCCESS
I just want to encourage all the people who are walking correctly and serving God with an honest heart but who are not publicly being given credits for it.
It’s sad to know that we live in days where religion has taken dominion over faith. Where people judge from what they see: As long as you display yourself as what they want and expect of you, you’re good to go and easily labelled a child of God filled with the holy spirit.
It’s so unfortunate that it’s occuring this way because a book can’t and should never be judged by its cover. And God doesn’t expect us to be carnal minded. He wants us to be spiritual being and spiritual eyes dont judge from looks. They dig deeper and find treasure.
I encourage you to keep serving God even if people are not talking about what you’re doing. As long as you’re doing it from an honest and sincere heart, God will acknowledge it and bless your good works.
God isn’t moved by popularity. Popularity and fame are vain. God wants us to be Christians in the way we treat each others; In the way we conduct ourselves when NOBODY is watching.
God bless you.
