Hey Guys!! I hope you had an amazing weekend like I did full of joy and peace. I was seating here enjoying one of the old and gold chewing gums from Kenya called ‘Big-G’, popping my bubble gum and I figured hey! You know what! I want to send a word of encouragement to a beautiful soul out there, who feels like they are under the rut and they see the light in the tunnel but it’s a train coming and now they think uh-oh how am I going to get myself out of this.
First of all before I even begin, let’s establish that your current location is not your final destination and where you are is exactly where you are supposed to be, going through whatever it is that you’re going through and all the time, the issue is not whatever the situation is. The issue is your mannerisms during the growth period. You see when a seed is planted, it doesn’t start panicking, crying, getting comfortable, depressed, mediocre or bitter while it’s a few inches underground. It just springs forth, blooms and grows and produces a Forest.
We are defined as ‘Human Beings’. I never paid attention to this until late last year when I dissected this word and my mind totally redefined everything. I got a revelation that we are humans that are supposed to be. Be still and know that He is God to mention the least. You see? So all along the problem is not Donald Trump, Your ex-boyfriend, Black Lives Matter, Feminism, The back stabber, the naysayers, your alcoholic parents (thank God I don’t have that), the users, you name it. The problem is that we are not being instead we are just humans. We are so distracted, all over the place and pretending to have very perfect lives as seen on social media. These self-imposed life distractions, without us realizing it, become a detriment to our life. Life is not supposed to be hurting, hard and all those other strange theories we use to philosophize life if I was to be asked.
So anyway, on Sunday Grace and I went to church and then we branched through a graveyard, you know ladies and pictures haha! We saw the tall trees springing back to life and thought that they would make such a great background for them pics. In that moment, I instantly (yes my mind is always on speed I have to slow it down forcefully sometimes) recalled the profound and awakening thoughts by Mark Victor Hansen that go like this ‘Graveyards are filled with books that were never written, songs that were never sung, words that were never spoken and things that were never done’ and I’m certain you’re also aware that its considered the richest place on earth and for me to get a clear perspective I have always asked WHY? Why when God says He has begun a good work in us and He will ENSURE that He fulfills it. When He says He knows the plans He has for us, plans to prosper us and give us Hope and a future. He has also said He wants us to be of good health and prosperous. These are quite phenomenal and intrinsic choices of words so why people dying prematurely and the world barely know who they are?
Several things came to my mind. First of all when I thought that destiny is a choice and not chance, I saw a lot of sense in that. I did the calculations and I figured, you actually can’t amount to much if you really don’t understand the user manual i.e the Bible. When you were created, in God’s image by the way, you were gifted with a very powerful body organ which is the mind and then you were given free will. Whatever you choose to do with these is up to you. Then if you apply the word to your life, you’ll see clear instructions:
- Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans- Proverbs 16:3 and In their hearts humans plan their course (NOT GOD) but the Lord establishes their steps-Proverbs 16:9.
It’s only then that God steps in to do His part. My words of encouragement is seat back and reduce or equally terminate the noise in your life. Ask yourself, why you are here? Where are you going? What problem can you solve? The answers to these two will launch you to an amazing place of peace of mind and more importantly give you a sense of directions because ‘when the student is ready the teacher appears’. When you know what you want and where you are going, you will have no time for time wasting, time wasters and premature deaths. By the way today, dying is not necessarily your heart stopping completely. From my observation I can tell you there are a lot of people that died long time ago and they just merely exist and this opinion is coming from a very good place.
God is our life and the length of our days, and so by drawing close to Him, we draw close to the source of our life. By LOVING Him and CLINGING to Him in Faith, we will draw upon His life, which will lengthen our days. As we trust Him and His promises of life, He is able to impart that life to us. Psalm 84: 11, 12 ‘For the Lord God is a sun and a shield, the Lord will give grace and Glory. No good thing including life will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man who trusts in you’.
Conclusively, relax, seat down, realize and actualize why you are here, take it to God in prayer, cut off the distractions, pray without ceasing and God said He is not a man to lie plus we are Christ’s ambassadors. So when we present HIM, He has to make a good name for His kingdom so duh you will overcome and definitely prosper in the sense that you will surprise those who wish you well and shock your enemies.
Don’t be praying God please help me…what should He help you with?? In other words be specific and that will only happen when you have a road map! That’s all for today. Let us sing the songs, write the books, speak the words and leave a legendary mark in the world. I promise you, you are here on an assignment and its definitely not to get by and be mediocre or worry about Donald Trump!! Cheer up, chin up, square those shoulders and dominate. SEE YOU LOVE BUGS NEXT MONDAY. I have robbed some space on Grace’s blog to speak to her people. I’m cool like that haha!!
Oh and I was also the designated photographer of the day so you can have a look at her outfit and yes please rate my photography skills and comment what topics you want me to cover. I’m not claiming to be a genius but I humbly state that I know a lot about a little. Anyway until then, be kind to yourself and set your priorities straight.
Lots of love, Faith Rogers.
