PRAYER

I Call It “a time to Gist With Our Father”.

One of the greatest things we have, is the ability to pray.Prayer is a communion between us and God.Prayers bring the will of God to pass on earth.God needs us in his presence everyday .This gives us the ability to focus and give our attention totally to Him.

Prayer is not just a time to tell God what we want from him,it is also a time to reverence Him,tell him how grateful we are,how we love Him,how we so depend on Him and how merciful He is. Let always be free with God,by pouring out our hearts to Him.Prayers gives us the opportunity to influence God to move in our lives.

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom”proverbs 9;10 .the fear of the Lord as most of us think is not being timid or scared of God, it is simply obeying His word and keeping His commandment and this is Wisdom.So we can’t be scared of talking to our father.

There is nothing too small or too big to talk to God about.I use to say “oh,i don’t have to pray about this cos it is way to irrelevant or too small”. But recently I have learned to pray  about everything. It amazing how those little things in my life as i used to call them turned out so differently.So basically there is nothing in our lives that is too small or too big to talk to our father about.Just take it to him in prayers.

when we pray about a particular thing in our life,we are bringing God into the picture.let never give up in praying,He hears us and at the right time,everything will work out together  for our good.

LOVE

love2

 

I used to think that love was just a feeling and trust me, I did wait a long time to ‘feel love’. I wanted everyone around me to show me love so that I could ‘feel it’.

Or was I the problem?

I didn’t feel it! Couldn’t feel it! I felt so empty and believed that I needed to be filled with love.

Then I began to ponder. Maybe my problem was in the definition…my definition of love.

“Do I really know what love is?”

“Was I getting it all wrong?”

I pondered.

 

A LOVE that is not judgmental cannot just be a feeling.

A LOVE that is selfless cannot just be a feeling.

A LOVE that is patient cannot just be a feeling.

A LOVE that cares cannot just be a feeling.

A LOVE that forgives cannot just be a feeling.

A LOVE that protects cannot just be a feeling.

A LOVE that is real cannot just be a feeling.

A LOVE that is compassionate cannot just be a feeling.

A LOVE that is beautiful cannot just be a feeling.

A LOVE that saves cannot just be a feeling.

 

No wonder I looked and searched hard for it in the wrong places because I never really knew what it was.

Reflecting on the life of Jesus has shown me what love really is.

Everything He ever did was centered around LOVE and because of His love walk, I now know what love is.

JESUS IS LOVE!

A WORD FOR SOMEONE

Stop impressing people to depress your self People that matter don’t mind, people that mind don’t matter.

Just because your path is different does not mean am lost. It only means i have my own lane to walk on.

Even if you are on the right lane,you will  get run over if you just  sit there .

Real strength is not just a condition of your muscles but a tenderness in your spirit and that why you got to renew it each day positively.

LIFE

WHAT EXACTLY IS LIFE?

LIFEI found so many definitions.

the condition that distinguishes animals and plants from inorganic matter, including the capacity for growth, reproduction, functional activity, and continual change preceding death.                 online dictionary

the quality that distinguishes a vital and functional being from a dead body. Merriam-Webster 

the period between birth and death, or the experience or state of being alive:  Cambridge English Dictionary.

Those definitions sound scientific or at some point unreal!!! Right? .Life is not generally defined but personally defined. Everyone have  their own meaning of life. The way you define “Your life’’ (remember i said it was personal) is reflected on the way you regard life. I mean have you seen different people attribute meaning to life!!! One would  tell you that  life is beautiful, sweet, and simple and another will say exactly the opposite (ugly, bitter, and hard).

life1

 

 

Life has been given to us freely make the best out of it. I know at some point we have lost lives that are close to us. Recently i lost a very good friend of mine. Being alive is a pace to give your live a meaning. Life may not be full of roses but we can all make lily out of it.  Stop looking at other people’s life to give yours a definition. Stop trying to define the essence of life  it self  but the essence of your life.(now that is purpose) :):):)

And as you beautifully define yours don’t be influenced by the world but by the word.

Define and find it.life4

Excellence

In pursuit of doing what I do WELL. . .
Excellence is doing what you do well. To be excellence is to be the best among the best. Excellence is not a destination.ex It is a state of mind, a life style. It is the ability to do ordinary things in an extra-ordinary way.

To Be excellent is a constant mind set. Never to go below what you are worth. to be able to stand out, what we do must be done extra-ordinarily well.  A product or a service does  not just  become the best overnight. It is the constant effort put in it. Excellence is not just being good at what you do. It is being the best at what you are good at doing.

Making excellence a habit is essential.                                                                                             A habit is something that is hard to give up. It is something that a person does often in a regular and repeated way. Let that thing be excellence. So let not your excellence be an act but a habit

Let it not be a skill but an attitude.           ex5                   A skill is a talent that a person possesses. Attitude is the way a person is determined to use his/her skills to complete the works. so let your excellence be a constant determination to be better with your skills.

A continuous process not an accident.                                                                                       Excellence should be a norm not something that happens unaware. Not a, ‘oh it came out well today”. But a, “it always comes out well”.

Excellence is a gradual process. You might not start being too good at it but you can strive to be excellence at it. Continue to  learn and practice what you do.ex6 Trying to do everything at ones is not a good start. For me it was a major issue until I decided on the particular thing i wanted to do at a particular time. That, gave me more space and focus. Don’t be carried away with trying to do so many things at a go. Find that which you want to do and just keep learning and practicing it. For it is better to be good at one thing than not to be good at so many things.

 

Every day I strive to become better in whatever i do. Not just by praying it but also by pursuing itex7

PASSION . . .

Passion for me is very important. Why? Because I believe our  passion has something to do with our purpose. God never gives us a purpose that  we will not have  passion for or enjoy doing. That brings me to saying that something you force yourself doing is not your purpose.Because the one thing you can’t fake is passion.  

“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” —Oprah Winfrey

We do not  follow our passion because it brings money or something we desire.We do because it  brings out who we are. For example, some people are passionate about helping others.  They don’t get money for it. Now am not saying that your passion will not bring this things but the greatest reward for doing what you are passionate about is Fulfillment. One of the beautiful effects of living your passion is that it inspires other people to live theirs.

Helping Others.

Oral Lee Brown  an inspiration.She embodies the value of helping others and truly shows how to pass those values on.

One morning on her way to work, Oral Lee Brown stopped by a local grocery store to make her usual purchase of some peanuts and a soda. On this particular day, however, a little girl approached Brown, asking for a quarter. Because all she had was a $5 bill, Brown invited the little girl to go with her to the store to get some change. Inside the store, Brown told the little girl she could pick out anything she wanted.

Instead of choosing candy or gum, which would have been the first choice for most kids, the little girl immediately ran for a loaf of bread. Brown asked the girl if she went to school. She quietly responded, “Sometimes,” as she shyly thanked Brown and quickly disappeared around the corner.

That night, Brown couldn’t sleep. She knew she had to find the little girl. She went to the school the girl would most likely attend, but she never found her. Instead, she found many other children, in less than ideal conditions. In an almost impulsive decision, Brown decided to “adopt” a class of 23 East Oakland, California, first-graders. She told them, “Stay in school, and I’ll send you to college.H13

To achieve this goal, Brown, a realtor, began saving money, putting aside $10,000 per year from her $45,000 salary.

Starting that day, Brown did more than simply make a promise to the children; she became an active part of their lives. She became a benefactor, mentor and second mother to those 23 first-graders, beginning with regular visits, Saturday tutorials and parent meetings. She tracked each child’s attendance and grades, bought them Christmas gifts and purchased supplies.

Brown took the students on recruiting trips to colleges and attended nine different high school graduations. Nineteen of the students in that first class enrolled in college, and three others went into trade schools. Those students all graduated from college in 2003 and 2004.

Brown is now on her sixth class of “adopted” students. All told, more than 125 young people have benefited from her generosity. Some of these students—now in college—report that if it hadn’t been for Brown, they would never have been given an opportunity for this kind of education.

In response, Brown says, “Somebody has to train these kids. Somebody has to teach them, and if not me, who? If not now, when? We must do it. It’s got to be done.”
Today, Brown has established the Oral Lee Brown Foundation, with the ultimate goal of opening a boarding school for 450 kids and planting the seeds for them to receive an Ivy League education. With her life’s ambition found in the work of supporting others to achieve undreamed-of goals.H0
