Self –Love and God


Self –Love and God

My eyes piercing through to my soul, acknowledging the distance in which I have come,

My hands embracing, some sort of resistance at first but holding my shoulders reaffirming that it’s going to be ok,

I once felt ugly, didn’t feel important and didn’t know my purpose,

I hated myself sometimes, most times,

Comparing myself with others, trying to fit in, often left me misplaced and alone,

Wasn’t until Christ came into my life that I started to appreciate this woman,

I appreciated the details that made me different

I came to love the uniqueness, in which God made me,

Found my purpose, and still discovering many others,

God indeed makes the difference in our lives, adding purpose and worth, reminding us why we are here, and that we are fearfully and wonderfully made, not only in the physical but also a wonderful life. Our lives should revolve around Him. When you get close to God He sort of changes your self-image, you no longer live to please others but you live to please Him, and you realize He accepts you and loves you no matter how imperfect you may feel or look.

He loves you unconditionally and you are indeed beautiful, with a splendid mind body and soul (better believe it)!

If I am not an inspiration then stop me,

If I am not an inspiration then stop me,

Stop me from chirping my tunes because they lack to make you soar, if my words do not motivate, then hold me captive, I rather am locked behind bars, than live not playing my part

I want to encourage the dancers to dance, and spin to their practice routines and instead of following add a step or two of originality,

To the singer I motivate you to sing, sing aloud, from your stomach, face the crowd, sing until the weary soul comes out from hiding in their shacks of depression, smiling from the comfort that emits from your voice, and sing!

To the writer, write, write from the depths of your soul, write the whispers that the angels decant over you,write the comforts that they tell you to ,for God wants to tell the world how much he loves them, oh how He loves them ,so write as the spokesperson of God.

To the planter, plant, as God blesses your hands plant, to feed the many that God will bring to you, plant!
To the teacher ,teach the lessons you have learnt so well, teach as to not fill your pockets ,but to fill minds and create leaders to change the world.

The world is a plot by which you are asked to play your part well, and I urge you to play the lead in your life, live a trail of lessons, surprises, laughter and inspiration.

Why are you rising

Why are you rising?

Why do you wake every day to face a world of challenges?

Why do you wash your face, and keep trying,

Why do you polish your shoes and press those clothes,

It is because you are valuable and you value yourself enough to work hard for what you want,

It may not be where you want to be, but you know where you are going,

You endure the burdens and extra stress because you got a plan, don’t let your enemies rob you from that plan now,

Do not quit, you are not defeated!

It will become uncomfortable, that just means that you are moving, you are growing, you are rising

You are manifesting your greatness within,

You are rising to become the person you are ordained to be,

Don’t stop now

Keep Rising!

Get up, and Get it together..

Get up, and Get it together..
Today I met this young man, lying in the bus stop, but I knew he wasn’t headed to a destination. His clothes were dirty, dirty, his clothes were dirty, and he held his pants in his hand, getting closer, I recognized the young man.
I recollect meeting him in college and we became acquainted, we were about the same age, but today he was different, face painted in mud, reconstructed, and lost some weight. He didn’t seem like the young, ambitious man I knew back then. So sitting down, asked him what was going on, and expressed his deepest regrets as he told me his story. He didn’t have anyone ,a loner often found in the hands of the law, searching for love but never seemed to find it, had no job, no money, no one he could talk to.
He had goals, he had plans, started college but never finished, he started well but somehow he lost his way, and he was struggling to get back, blamed it all on not having a home, a family.
So many of us today are going through struggles if not like that young man but we are facing a challenge in our lives and we just need someone to talk to, we need help, we need deliverance. Well Jesus is there, and He says to cast ALL your cares upon Him for He cares for you, He can carry your load today, he will listen to your problems and He is able to solve them.
I wish I could have provided that man with a job, but all I could was encourage him to get up from where he was, get himself together and ask God to help him. I encourage you you to do the same, Get up, Get yourself together and ask the Saviour to help you. For with God nothing shall be impossible, but you need to make that first step!!!

Don’t worry about your haters!!

Don’t worry about your haters!!
Whenever you are close to your breakthrough that is when your adversaries strike the hardest. Ever been close to getting a promotion and that’s when your co-workers stress you out the most? It’s like you are going through that fire before you come out whole,you are being refined. Some of us worry about our haters too much, when we shouldn’t because in order for God to bless you your haters have to be present, God says says He prepares a table before you in the presence of your enemies, Give me a token for good that those that hate me may see it and be put to shame, for thou oh Lord has helped me and comforted me.

They are like stepping stones towards your destination, a wind/storm that God uses to propel u forward, all the tears you have cried have sort of washed the Masters feet and He is getting ready to bless you. The longer you endure that fiery furnace the purer you will become, so thank God for the valleys they made you humble, they made you think and change attitudes, you grew, you struggled don’t give up climbing now ,you are near the top. Forget the nay Sayers the end may not be clear, but have faith it is going to get better, your season of blessing is HERE.
