Don't run with speed

A few days ago, a friend brought a scripture up for us to discuss (Darlington, God bless you.) And while we were discussing it, I just knew I was going to write my thoughts on it here. For reasons unknown to me I have been postponing it (do you know I used to spell postpone as prospone? Thank God for dictionary and auto correct o), but my mind hasn't stopped brooding on it since and so, here I am, about to type away lessons learned from Heb12:1. Enjoy....

Ask for help!!!

Do you remember what life was likefore Google Maps and smartphones?
Think back to when you were travelling to a destination you had never been before. You would've had some directions prior to setting out. However, 7 times out of 10 you'd still stop a complete stranger and ask for directions just to make sure your on the right path or because the directions and your current location weren't quite matching up. Most of the people you stopped and asked for directions probably hadn't even been to your destination but they were familiar with the area making it possible to give enough guidance to at least get you to the next checkpoint.

I cried on Sunday

I cried on Sunday.
I was in church and during a ministration,  I went on my knees and tears began to pour. I remember thinking after service that there's hardly anytime i go to God's presence 'with an open and expectant heart' and I don't end up crying.
When I was still an infant in a Christ, i used to cry because i felt guilty for my sins. I'd weep, apologising to God, promising not to do it again (hehehe) and then when I felt better I'd start calling him sweet names and asking him to provide and protect but these day's when i go before God, i don't cry because I feel dirty but because He loves me. I know I'm not there yet, I'm still very very imperfect but I tend to focus on His love instead of my guilt and that purifies me more than any apology. Everytime I focus on God and how much he loves me, I just don't do the things I know wouldn't please him but when I focus on my imperfections and begin to 'try' to do good, I fail.

My Birthday Wishlist

In an earlier post, I said my birthday was coming up on the 8th of October (which is 26days away). I'm pretty excited but not really (don't mind me, I just happen to be one of those people that get mixed feelings about birthdays and getting older). Anyway, in honour of my 19th birthday and the people who don't know what birthday present to get me, I  have come up with this wish list (with pictures) to help you all out (yea, I know I'm nice. hehe).

What I want for my birthday.
1) A cute LEATHER back bible that is not King James version please. Preferably, it should be The living translation or The message translation or the New living translation or Good news bible. NO KING JAMES Please.

Nothing will be impossible

I got this mail from Joel Osteen this morning and I just had to share it with you guys. ENJOY!

“ nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.”(Genesis 11:6 KJV)

In the Old Testament, the people were trying to build a tower to the heavens. The scripture says, “Nothing they imagined was impossible to them.”
Their imagination was so powerful that God had to send confusion to keep them from accomplishing something for the wrong purpose.

That same principle is true today. If we can get our imagination working for the right purpose, if we will let God paint a new picture on the canvas of our heart and see ourselves as He sees us — strong, healthy, victorious — then we can rise higher and accomplish everything He’s put in our heart.

It may look impossible, but if you can imagine it, if you can see it through your eyes of faith, God is saying, “Nothing will be impossible to you.”

That means you can overcome addictions by forming a new image on the inside. You can break generational curses by creating the right pictures in your imagination. You can go further than you ever thought possible if you’ll keep the right vision in front of you!

Have a beautiful day.

No idea is too big.

I dont have much to write. I just want to tell you God loves you no matter what. You didnt do anyting to make God love you, you cant do anything to make him stop loving you. Just because you don't have that close consistent relationship with him doesn't stop you from being his child (Not all kids are close to their parents yet they are still their parents kids).

Mental slavery

"Emancipate yourself from mental slavery... none but ourselves can free our mind"
I heard that quote and my mind took a paradigm shift. It sunk so deep and resonated so well within me that I Cant forget what that exact moment looked and felt like.
That day, i realised we limit ourselves,  we set boundaries when there actually isnt any boundary. We hold our minds in captivity, allow what the world says to be our guide and 'think as think we should'. Most of us are held captive as mental slaves. We never allow ourselves to dream or look beyond the ordinary.  We see only the obstacles and not the possibilities. We allow our situations determine us, we allow people think for us, we become solely the product of influence. We never allow ourselves look within us, break free of all 'limitations' and create our own fate/reality.
