Envy is an evil disease. When you see your neighbour prospering, embrace their success. Before they arrived at their current destination, they perhaps had to make unimaginable sacrifices. They probably cried a million unknown tears. They even may have had scars embedded within their soul on the course of the journey. You just may never know the cost of their success. So, rather than envying that individual, why not rejoice with/for them? Why not trust God that He will bless you in the manner He seems fit?
Remember that safe people don’t take pleasure in envy. They are genuinely grateful for the good in another’s life in spite of it all!
If the person around you is making progress, be encouraged by their success. Use their story as a driving force and catapult to achieving your own goals.
PS: Safe People by Psychologists Drs Cloud & Townsend is a must read.
‘… And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!’ So God granted him what he requested. (1 Chronicles 4:10 NKJV).
Increase,bless,these words signify that Jabez was in a much smaller place and desired to breakforth into something greater. He called out to God from His small place for a change. This prayer reminds me that God can enlarge your small place. He can enlarge, increase and make big whatever you commit into his hands. It does not really matter how or where you start from. As long as you are bold enough to cry out in a loud roar and ask for change, He’ll hear you.
Jabez was despised by his own mother who should have been his source of comfort. He however did not relent, but pressed on and called out for change.
As we are at the dawn of another year, wherever you find yourself now, I want you to cry, scream for increase, enlargement and then see how God will make all things beautiful in his time.
Love, Blessings and a Beautiful 2020 2020
PS: Before I go into my reason for writing, I just want to thank God for you and I! God has kept us to the end of 2019 and is ushering us into 2020′ I am so grateful
Life is not just about receiving and receiving.It is also about giving. Whatever type of relationship you have with the next person ,it is important to not only be a taker,but a giver as well. That is what the principle of love is based on.
Be a giver . And when I speak about giving, it’s not just about giving financially. There are so many other ways you can genuinely give without spending a penny. You can give your care,time,service,skill ,your listening ear or even simply a hug or a shoulder to lean on. All of these are amazing ways you can give!
Today ,be determined to be a friend that gives and not only waits to be given. People will get fed up and run away from you if all you are is a taker!
Love and Blessings,
Life is full of eish,and sometimes we lose sight of our purpose and calling. We stray from the path assigned for us and we walk on roads that derail us from our destiny.But,no matter how far wrong you, we have gone, there’s always room for a detour.A comeback! It is never too late to live your purpose. You have purpose.Your purpose is the very meaning of your existence.And because you have purpose, you cannot,you should not and must not ,at all cost wait for man to validate you. With or without man’s validation, walk in your calling and be the you you were created to be! Be your own cheerleader!
Provers 20:5 ‘The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters, but one who has insight draws them out’.
Love and blessings,
They didn’t promote my business. They didn’t value my input. They didn’t commend my work. They didn’t talk about my show. They didn’t !They didn’t! Are you still sitting there moaning that they didn’t ? Well, news is that they didn’t and may never do what you think they should or can do for you!
Don’t sit there waiting for someone else to promote your business,your work ,the things you do; you just might wait for far far too long! Go all out and do the work God has placed in your hands & allow him bless it;that’s the greatest level of promotion -His blessings!
‘’6 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another’’.
Love and Blessings,
I hear it is widely said that if you don’t take risks, you would achieve so little in life. Risks-all of life is wrapped up in risk- taking. When we step out of what we know and put our foot forward into the unknown, it’s a risk we have taken. When we leave one business or job opportunity to embrace another ,it’s a risk we’re taking. Above all, when we meet new people we have never met and allow them into our space ,into our life it’s a risk we’re taking. What will determine the success of your risk-taking is the trust you put in not just yourself but also the people in whose account you’re taking the risk for. Risk and trust work hand in hand.
It’s so easy to remain in your comfort zone and have a merry-go-round life!However, if you want to achieve greatnesses,you’ll need to step out of the shoes of the place you have always known and wear a shoes of the unknown! Don’t be afraid; take risks! Wise Risks!
