Hello loves, happy New month 😊😊😊
Well I’m here once more I’m pretty sure you guys are used to my inconsistency but don’t worry I will work on that. It’s only two months to the end of the year mmmhhh …..I can’t believe how fast this year has gone I’m still taking it all in. This year has been overwhelming both in good ways and in bad ways. Even though the bad outdo the good I have learnt that everything in life is a two way street and focusing on the negative will make us miss out on the positive which is always more important. So this year has been overwhelming in a lot of ways and most conversations I have with someone who asks how I’m doing is normally “I don’t know” which is exactly how I have been feeling of late because purpose of ones life is something so hard to comprehend . Apart from just school, work, family, friends we at times need a sense of direction , a feeling of need to do something that is worth it, something more than a paycheck or a certificate ,something that shows where your passion and aspirations lie.
Purpose is a personal meaning that life has to you and if we don’t know it , it means we don’t know why we’re here and that makes it hard to keep going. As overwhelming as my year has been it has taught me a lot that’s why I said it’s a two way street . Yes there has been regrets, confusion, hard times during these times is when you realise you need something to hold on to ,something to keep you going. During these times this is what I do and hope it helps you too:-
1) Make a 360 degrees turn in your life.
Normally when we seem to see only the negative things is life we must have done 95° or maximum 180° turn but do the 360° see the whole picture because it can’t be that bad . Take yourself back to when you thought you had it all , when you had it all going for you…..the smiles, the good times the little mercies they are all there just do the turn you’ll see…then you’ll know that this one is a phase too and it will pass. Maybe your purpose lies in that 299° that you haven’t turned to, sometimes we need to go back in order to move forward. See what you missed back then since you’ll have a clearer view.
2) Talk to God.
Many of the conversations we have are with people , friends we believe we trust but we fear that once we walk out the door they might talk about us to others because it’s true people change up too quickly. There’s no need for such uncertainties when it comes to God . We should stop focusing on being real with people and start being real with God ,talk to him he’s a better listener than any other person I know. Even when you talk to yourself He is the only third party who listens because He is omnipresent ….let people call you crazy if they may. Just talk to the one who listens may it be a prayer or a normal conversation he hears them all. He is always there when no one else is The feeling of relief after a talk with God is unexplainable.
3) know that someone has been there before.
This verse just confirms that God knows everything about our lives from the moment we were conceived untill when you’ll finish your purpose in this life. So when you’re at crossroads , wondering what to do at whatever phase you’re in always know that someone has been through that road before so walk through it with courage because He made it to the end of the road that’s why you are here and you will make it to the end of the road as well
4) Make necessary changes.
Back in school we had this teacher and whenever he was on duty his parting shot were ” even the bible says when your right hand causes you to sin cut it off , if your left leg does the same cut it off too” and he would go on and on…. but I doubt he even knew the chapter in the bible 😂😂😂.
Whatever you may think is making you lag behind, making you feel like you’re not moving just let it go. Sometimes we hold on so much to things we feel we deserve but in real sense without them we’re better off, sometimes we push things force things and end up frustrated for no good reason….let it go and you’ll realise you are no longer bound by the yoke that had you bondage. And remember surrender is the beginning of elevation just let go and let God.😊
5) Do not conform to comparison.
Imaginatively lets say you put yourself as another person…like I put myself and my whole personality in another person and then start analysing that person….I’m very sure I would like something or let’s say a lot of things about that person and remember that person is myself. So there’s no need to compare yourself with someone else unless it’s in terms that develop you not just because they have nice cars or have nicer hair . There’s something in you that makes you you and if you loose that trying to be someone else you’ll loose your purpose in this world.
We’re different in one way or another that a why your fingers are not all on the same level because if they we’re you wouldn’t be able to hold a pen ….we’re at different levels with different abilities so as to help each other achieve our purpose which we all have. Yes appreciate other people’s gifts and strong holds but do not question yours once you start questioning yours it’s comparing which will either make you feel inferior or superior of which neither serves a useful purpose.
6) Its all connected.
All the cocktails of happenings have a reason to it. Life is a puzzle being completed. It has lessons , that we must all learn, pain that we must all endure, love that makes us human, relationships that makes us stay connected as we journey through the road of discovering our purpose. Do not rush through the process as each piece is important in the puzzle so is each lesson….any lesson skipped will have to be ‘re-learned . Gather each piece as it’s part of the puzzle and you’ll see yourself come out with a colorful rainbow.
7) Trust God’s timing and The process.
God works in many different ways none of us can ever imagine. Look at Saul he was annointed to be king but had to wait 20 years to sit on the throne….but he trusted in the one who annointed him . Yes at some point he did have doubts about all this yet he still trusted in God to fulfill His promise. God is not a human being to lie…He always upholds his promise as long as he put something in your heart , in your hands, in your mind he will nurture it untill it bears fruits no matter how long it takes just trust Him to Get the work done . He has plans for us and all of them are good, all of them are for us to have life and not just life but life in abundance so if He as brought you this far and not failed you…..why would he start now?? No matter what you go through in this life even when your prayers seems to hit a wall ….know the teacher is always quiet when the student is undergoing a test..just hold on to God’s right timing He always delivers
8) Get out of your comfort zone.
They say great things begin to happen when you get out of your comfort zone so just do it. Do what you have always wanted to do if it’s fashion, a relationship, a business idea just do it. Discover new things about yourself get out there spread your wings yes you might fall (fail) but darling what if you fly. Comfort is like a prison yes it keeps you safe from the outside fears but in the inside it holds you captive but when you decide the yoke of bondage in the name of safety will have no power over you anymore. Face your fears and see where God is willing to take you. Growth begins when you step at the end of your comfort zone. The more small acts of bravery you take the more confidence you’ll have to take even bolder steps .
From me to you❤❤❤❤
