We don't need our peers approval to be who we want to be.

When I was young it really mattered what people would say about me. when somebody told me that i am smart and cute I would be happy, and that boosted my self-esteem. The same applied when my peers told me that I am stupid, ugly and poor, that destroyed my self-esteem. As a child my happiness depended on people, including my family. I needed to hear what people say about me in order to build my identity as a child. Now the problem is when teenagers and adults as well don't leave this need of being recognized behind as they grow-up.
We easily let people's opinion's to cling on us, and we want to do things so that a certain people can see. The thing is we don't need peoples approval in order to make it in life. Think with me, if you believed and followed everything people said about you, you wouldn't be where you are right now, not everyone believed in me and I bet the same applies to you. So your teacher's, friends, colleagues and even your family can not determine your future. Its your responsibility to do so. Believe in yourself, do what you believe in and don't forget to do what makes you happy and pleases God.

When is the time for change?

How long have you waited? Maybe you have been waiting forever for that right moment to change your life, but you need to understand that the right time to change is right at that moment you are thinking about change, if it wasn't necessary for us to deal with change the idea of changing would have never crossed our minds. Many at times we find ourselves stuck in life simply because we are waiting for the perfect or right time to change or to take the next step in our lifes, the reality is that the is no "right/perfect" time for change, change has never been an easy task from the beginning. take note that "if you find yourself where you were in the past years doing the somethings you used to do, you are stuck in the journey because life is one journey that requires us to keep moving"
The pain or frustrations we face when adapting to change is temporary but the results will forever last. Just out of your comfort zone that's where your full potential, success and strengths lies, all you need to do is to come out and enjoy the fruits of "change". keep on moving looking at the bigger picture

You won the race even before you were born, why stop now?

You were born a winner, the race is yours to win More than 100 million sperms were ejaculated and the race for life began. the fact that the sperm carrying you made it to the ovum before the other 99 million sperms makes you a winner
it was like that from the beginning each and every sperm had one goal to reach the ovum not to carry those that fall along the way or to look out for other sperms, no it was a race and life is a race too dont expect people to be there when you fall. when you fall 20% of the people will rejoice that you have fallen and 80% dont even care whats going on in your life
The minute you realize that you are on your own its the same minute where you will stop depending on people to better your life. dont quit because your dreams dont care how you feel, but you can make it, you win even before you were born

Love changes hearts.

Love changes hearts.

If you want to see change, love people, don't argue with them.

Think about it...

... when was the last time you argued with someone and they later came about and said something like "thanks for arguing with me and pointing out how wrong I was."

It almost makes you laugh to even read those words because it's so ridiculous.

Now think about this...

... when was the last time you just loved somebody, right where they are - mistakes/faults/defects and all - and over time you began to see them warm up to you?

It's that unspoken influence we have when we just accept people the way they are without trying to "fix" them, "help" them, or "enlighten" them.

Not so easy to do sometimes!

I know!

But, the rewards in doing so are big - very big.

By loving people and accepting them just the way they are, right where they are right now, it communicates to them how valuable they are, how precious they are.

It says to them, "You matter."
"You are important."
"You are worthy."

This is what changes lives, changes hearts.

Not arguing.

Loving changes people.

If you want to see change, try loving people, not nagging, debating, or bullying people - just love them.

Who should you start with?

Why not start with the person you see in the mirror and start loving that person and accepting them, honoring them, respecting them.

The next person you should practice this with is those you meet daily - aha! of course!

But seriously, it will take some adjustment if you're not accustomed to doing this.

Rather than jump out and engaging in your previous habits, take a second to slow down, and just start loving people.

Don't argue with them - just love them, right where they are.

Mother Teresa "do it anyway"

This are wise words from a wise women "Mother Teresa". keep them in mind and have a blessed week.

"People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.

If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.

For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway."

Don't give up, never back down

You have a good Shepherd. You are loved and protected, never alone.

Of course in our natural minds it doesn't always seem this way.

But it's still true.

Whenever you start making even a small bit of progress in your personal journey it seems roadblocks, delays, obstacles begin to surface either to stop you, or to slow you down. 

Some of these obstacles may be fears, or feelings of being overwhelmed, or unqualified, or that perhaps it's just too difficult, or just plain "not worth it".

If we see things from this perspective, it's because we're looking at them naturally, not spiritually. 

The truth is none of those obstacles can stop you. 

They will definitely be something you'll have to contend with. We all have individual giants and mountains in our lives that we have to face, but also true that we're not facing them alone. 

We have a good shepherd with us to guide us, help us, and in some cases remove those obstacles completely and do all of the heavy-lifting for us.

So while we may feel all alone, incapable, or afraid, the true reality is we are not.

Our shepherd is right there alongside us, helping us each step of the way - we are never alone.

With this reality in the front of our mind (not the back of our mind), we can move forward in all that's before us, holding, trusting God is with us and is helping us, empowering us.

Don't back down. Never give up. Never fear. You have a good Shepherd. You are loved and protected, never alone.

Change is unavoidable but growth is optional

There is nothing we can do to stop change. It is inevitable. While we live our lives from day to day we are surrounded by changes going on all around us. Best to just make peace with this and accept it.

Growth, however, is not constant. 

In fact, we could go through many changes in our life without realizing very much growth. There is a certain cooperation we must have in order to grow from our experiences. Though our life lessons are ever-changing, we can simply ignore these lessons God has presented to us. If we harden our hearts and close our minds we will certainly not be able to learn and grow, thus wasting the opportunity we've been given.

God, give us grace to our hearts and minds so we don't waste opportunities, having to relearn lessons we could have learned the first time. Help us be teachable and humble so we can grow in your loving ways.

We know we have free will. Best to use that free will to choose to learn from every situation God brings your way.

The power of a young men and two masters

Being young is the most precious stage every individual has ever faced or been in, but also it is one stage that is difficult to let go. Many young people lose their values Christian paths as they transect from childhood to being an adult when we are at this crossroads we are often exposed to so many things that a young person can do, we get exposed to sex, drugs, alcohol etc, but it's also the best stage where we get a chance to experience life and the love that Jesus has for each and every one of us. As a young person, you have the strength that two masters want to use in order to win souls for their kingdoms, apostle John said: "wrote to you young men because you are strong" (1 John 2:14).


The same strength that the apostle is talking about is the same strength that the devil needs to win as many souls as he can to hell, which is why we find so many young people using drugs, being pornstars/ prostitutes, criminals and all the evil things you can mention, but why because God also wants to use this strength to spread the gospel and change people's life'why does he let the devil use so many young people without doing nothing?  the answer is simple it is not that he is doing nothing but its how satan manages to deceive young people with the thought that the work of God is difficult or boring, my friend if you have this in your mind you are missing out but it's never late because the word of God doesn't change

"for I know the plans I have for you," says the lord, Jeremiah 29:11. He still has a plan ready for your life and he is waiting for you to turn to him and let him work in your life, maybe you are thinking as you read that "no God can't be talking to me. I am a sinner and am not worthy to be used by him" you are right you are a sinner and not worthy to serve him but because of his love and mercy and more the sacrifice that Jesus did for us we have been cleansed. Stand up on your feet and tell the accuser that "satan you have no power of my life and I don't owe you anything because my life was bought at a price, I will serve the lord and the saviour of my life Jesus Christ" and talk to God in prayer asking him to forgive your sins and to lead you all the days of your life. in all surrender your life to him and see the greatness of his love.
