Eager but unprepared

Hmm! Early this year after the “happy new year celebration”I started seeing the phrase “This decade”on social media. In the mood of the festive period I joined them too. My message was very simple “In this new decade most of us will be becoming wives, husbands, fathers and also mothers”.

After the festive period celebration was over, reality set in.
How well have I served the Lord? Do I really know Him? Am I enjoying or just enduring this unique phase of my life? Friends, answer those questions for yourselves too.

We are emotionally anxious but not prepared, most of us (myself inclusive) thought we can just stroll with time and soon our soulmate will be knocking at the door smiling with roses/ring in his hand or with smiles and approvals in her mouth and face. Look, if you are just preparing when you should be ready, you are already late.

This is one of the best phases of our lives and our utmost desire at this time should be “getting busy for the Lord”1 Cor 7:25 But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord:“not waiting for innocent people who will complete us or cover our mess.

Be single means becoming whole and finding out your uniqueness is the real key to happiness in marriage — Myles Monroe, this is a unique phase of our life and it is as though some of us are wasting it.

We all want godly relationships and homes but we do not want to develop godly character! Errant nonsense I call this, because only godly character begets godly relationships. No man wants a liability, an asset is what everyone longs to have.

Let me whisper this in your ears “You can only love a woman/man as much as you love God

One of my brothers in Christ once said and I quote “Forget marriage why not prepare yourself for yourself”, what does that mean? Discover what God will have you do and prepare yourself with His help.

I round off with a quote from Myles Munroe “Until you do not need marriage to complete you, you are not ready for marriage“.

Incomplete

Just believe! Is that a familiar cliché?
It is quite disheartening to know that there are so many people who claim to be believers in our days but not many who live as one. It is an eye sore to see men who cannot be differentiated from the people of the world.

The church is busy proclaiming the incomplete gospel. We tell people to give their lives to Jesus but it seems as though we dont know what that means, maybe that is why we do not tell them what it means.

We enjoy preaching cheap grace, we just tell men to believe….”just believe gospel”is too cheap compared to what Christ did on the cross, we must start pointing men to Christ on the cross, making them understand what it took God to die for them. We must also say to men what Christ said in Matthew 11:28-30 (Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light — There is a yoke) and to the words of Paul in Colossians 2:6 (You accepted Christ Jesus as Lord, so continue to live following him). We must begin to tell men what giving their lives to Christ mean in the real sense of it.

We must stop painting the gospel as one without responsibility, we must stop making men think the gospel is all for goodies, we must let men understand that even in the midst of adversities it doesn’t mean God is not good.

We must begin to also follow Christ fully, we must begin to be responsible for our growth, we must begin to keep adding to our faith as implied in 2 Peter 1:5-7 (Because you have these blessings, do all you can to add to your life these things: to your faith add goodness; to your goodness add knowledge; to your knowledge add self-control; to your self-control add patience; to your patience add devotion to God; to your devotion add kindness toward your brothers and sisters in Christ, and to this kindness add love..). We must keep being committed to the God’s Word and to prayers.

We must become committed to this indeed, then really The Kingdom of God is come and His will be done.We all need help as regards all this and we must beg God for our lives daily. Shall we pray?

Not an Accident II

It was on a cool evening in December and birthday bells were chiming. Everyone were taking pictures in turns and it was my turn on the list for the “order” of photography.As I stepped forward to get a “shot”,I heard the celebrant say to me go away you are too tall. It was as though a razor was driven into a balloon,that was a massive blow on me.

I felt embarrassed,why did God have to make me like this?Is this how I will keep living in rejection and ridicule? I carried the hurt everywhere I went, I don’t want this height again,I am too tall,why I am this tall? Trust me when I say God is good,He came through for me as I stumbled on Rick Warren’s book titled “Purpose driven life”.I will share what I learnt from the book concerning this matter.

The first truth you must reckon with, is that God planned you before your parents even conceived you.You should also understand that God chose recommended every detail of your body,your race,skin and every other of your characteristics.It was not by chance.

Psa 139:15(MSG): You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something.

God is good and very organized, He does not believe in crash program so He plans before time 

Psa 139:16(MSG) You saw me before I was born and scheduled
each day of my life before I began to breathe. Every day was recorded
in your Book!”

What engineered our making by God was His love 

Eph1:4b (MSG) ……he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love.

God values and loves you,this you must always remember 

James 1:18(NCV) God decided to give us life through the word of truth so we might be the most important of all the things he made.

But I don’t understand myself,what can I do?Yes,you do not have the ability to understand yourself. No product know itself than its maker,God knows you and you can only find purpose in Him. 

Rom 12:3(MSG) “The only accurate way to understand ourselves is by what God is and by what he does for us.”

Not an accident I

Good day beloved,How are you today? This is my first post here and my new blog.

I will be talking about something profound today.We are in a world of varying opinions on different matters even to the point of our appearance, some of us like tall people, some short people,some slim people,some fat people,some people who are dark in complexion, some people who are fair in complexion,some love people with round face,some people with oblong face,some people with square shape face,some prefer the curly hair while some prefer the blonde hair.

All this preferences are not a problem in themselves but you know the human is naturally selfish,we love our opinions and we just go ahead to rubbish what others hold on to

Have you ever been at the receiving end? Were you ever dismissed because of your height? Have you suffered discrimination because of your race or colour? Have you suffered rejection for who you are?

If your answer is yes,when this happened to you,what was your response? What did you do?

What do you do when the devil taunt you with some features or details of your life you do not seem to like?

Drop your response in the comments box
