BLESSED SCARS

Waking up slowly, she blinked herself to consciousness.
Laura, while still on her bed had vivid flashes on her life rushing through her mind.
She slowly pulled her self off the bed.
" I've been through so much, she thought to herself. I don't know what else to do. nobody seems to understand."
As she knelt down to say her prayers, all she found her self saying was, " God please help me, I don't know what else to do. Have mercy on me and give me the grace to make it through".


When we are burdened with the weight of uncertainty and the feeling of being lost because things are not just working out, it becomes more difficult to remain at peace and be focused. Worst case, when we do not know what to do, or why 'bad' things or not so good things keep happening each time we try to do something - keeping a job gets more challenging, running a successful business proves almost impossible or maybe even not knowing what exactly it is we are supposed to be doing ( Read road-to-self-discovery-part-1 and part-2 ) . It becomes even more chaotic.

Until our true calling begins to show forth, we will remain pregnant with our dreams, and like every pregnancy- it takes time for the baby (gift, dreams, purpose) to grow. some may take longer than others and this is up to God to decide.

We may think we are ready but there may be some character traits God still wants to change in us before we go out there; it may be that negative attitude we can't seem to let go, uncontrollable anger, lack of patience, foul language etc ... the list goes on and on.

The important thing is to be pregnant with something ( dream, talent etc). God is working to get us prepared to handle these gifts/dreams he has placed in our hearts. - He is giving us the beauty treatment.

So let go of pride, and see the blessing in the scars.
The more we overcome by His grace, the stronger we become in the race.

Remain blessed.

Yours Truly,
:)

Overcoming the fight in your HEAD

This post may not resonate with everyone, though I pray it speaks to as many people that read it. I understand that we all have different understandings and believe systems. But! I believe this cuts across all that as this is a common denominator in our lives. This post may be 'deep' for some, and enlightening for others if you fall in the bracket of the former, it is my prayer that God will give you understanding in your heart as you read.


We are under ATTACK. No matter how blessed and successful we are, we are being attacked or about to be attacked.We are in a HEAD fight with the devil, We must attack him with what we "KNOW" . Your head will lead you where your heart will not take you. Your head is the center of your existence, how you relate to people around you and things in your life, so it is very important to protect your head.
 The enemy is fighting you over the control of your mind (life), Everything that he does, every form of attack is a battle for contro…

The fear of Uncertainty

Life doesn't always give us what we want. In most cases, it takes us in the opposite direction of where we are trying to go.  The question is, what do you do when you're on a path you did not ask for and was not ready to tread?.
The thing with sudden and unexpected changes is, no body really wants to leave their comfort zone (even though we know that's where great things happen). We just don't want to stay out in an unfamiliar space for too long, and in the worst case, be dealing with an unfamiliar situation, in a particularly tough and  under unfamiliar circumstances.  I call it, "The fear of uncertainty".

NOT knowing what is going to happen next is a daunting place to be, especially if you like to KNOW  ahead of time and you are someone who likes to plan and be prepared for things so you know what moves you need to make to avoid unpleasant situations.  See, life is funny because nobody really knows what is going to happen next, we all live with the hope th…

The challenge to be "Grounded"

It takes some people longer than others to figure out what they are supposed to be doing with their life.
I know I write a lot about knowing who you are and what you were created to be. I believe this is very important as it is the root  for our existence. Once we discover why we are here and what we are supposed to be doing, every thing naturally flows on from there. So do not be overwhelmed by this, It is my hope that someone is blessed by one of my posts.
I am going to dive right in. I know a lot of people struggle with finding out who they truly are and what they are supposed to be doing with their life. So they jump from one thing to the other, leaving trails of unfinished projects, quitting before the business has time to grow, stranded ideas that began as a "great" idea and they end up thoroughly confused and frustrated. Which will often lead them back to repeat the cycle of Fresh start - excited about something new -New idea- Questions and frustration - Tired and fru…
