LIFE LESSONS 1

Throughout life and its challenges, God has revealed stuff to me and it has gone a long way in helping and continues to help me become better each day. It’s a journey and it’s never ending so you keep learning as long as you live.

*God is the beginning and end of life; you can do so little without Him. Even when you are or think you are succeeding, its vain success without God. (John 5:30 I can do nothing on my own ….NLT)

*God uses those the world misuses and rejects. He uses the seemingly foolish things to confound the wise! (1 Cor 1:27 ‘Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful…’NLT)

* If it aint really your business, shut up. You don’t always have to have an opinion even if you have 120% reasons to. (Mat 12:36 ‘And I tell you this; you must give an account on judgment day for every idle word you speak. ‘NLT)

*Fear and faith cannot live in the same heart or mind. One will suffocate the other. (2 Tim 1:7 ‘For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. ‘NLT)

*Righteousness, peace and joy is the sequence, you can’t have joy without peace and you can’t have peace without righteousness. There is no vice versa about it. (Rom14:17 ‘For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.’ NLT).

*You can’t runaway from your giant. It must be confronted. Confronting your giant teaches you new strategies for becoming a greater warrior! Until you kill your own giant, you’ll never become what God has called you to be. (Psalm 91:13-14 13 ‘ You will trample upon lions and cobras you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet! 14 The LORD says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name’NLT.)

* Life’s battle is either lost or won first in the mind. (Prov 4:23 23 ‘Guard your heart above all else,
for it determines the course of your life.’NLT)

*Don’t cover up your mistakes. Shout out for help. It will do you good.( Psalm 139:23 -24 23 ‘Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.24 Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.’NLT)

Keep your head up!!!

‘Yesterday is but a dream, and tomorrow only a vision; but today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well therefore to this day’ (Indian poem).

One step at at time, enjoy the life God has given you. Somewhere somehow someone is wishing they were you! Be thankful even when it seems it’s all coming up to nothing. God sure works, I am a testimony. Promise yourself to sow seeds of positive thoughts, words and actions. Improve your relationship with others; commit yourself to do those things that will make you a better and more confident person. I’ve seen several changes in my life and I know it isn’t impossible for you too.

Have a rewarding week and remember I love you!!

Letter from God!

Hello My child,

I just thought I would say a word to remind you that I am not far from you.I am nearer than you ever can know or feel.

I am Your Father and I am assuring you that each time you call upon me, I hear you regardless of the multitude calling My Name from all over the earth! You are so special to me and I know how to single out your voice amongst many.

I love you that much, no wonder I am allowing you go through the process. You see,you need to be solid.I need to be sure of your ability to stand firm upon Me, Your rock, even in the fiercest storm without renouncing that I am Your God or giving up on your faith. I have to trust you enough in order to entrust to you more than enough.

My child, I’m here. I’m only working so be patient with me. It’s never ever too late for me or with me. Age to me is a number . Don’t overlook the obvious here, My love. With Me, one day is as good as a thousand years, a thousand years as a day. I am never late with my promise as some measure lateness. I am restraining myself on account of you, holding back the end because I don’t want anyone lost. I’m giving you space and time to change. The branches that don’t belong must go.They must go giving way to new branches; new growth, yes, new growth. New growth in your spiritual, emotional, financial, educational life; new growth in your health, career and every bit that concerns you, loving, precious seed of Mine!If only you will give me a little more time, you will eat the fattest bones. I am able and my Hands are not too short to save or deliver you. Do I open the womb and not deliver the baby? Do I, the One who delivers babies, shut the womb?Be rest assured I am not a wayward God. I don’t start a thing and cut it off mid-way. I complete what ever I put my hands to because I am the Beginning and the End; Alpha and Omega of your life!

The enemy is ringing in your head that you have come to your wit’s end and that there is no way out. Don’t mind him,he comes only to steal, kill and destroy but I have come to give you life in all its abundance.
Your family and friends have given you options which compromises what you stand for. Shortcuts to the next level have cropped up. You have become the mockery of the town and throwing in the towel seems to be the only way through and out. Please don’t fall for any of it son! Even though you feel unloved, rejected or abandoned; you only be still and know that I am God and at the end of your trial, you will exalt me for the testimony. Are you not aware that I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert? I love you more than any man can and would ever so R.E.L.A.X!!!

“I’ll make up for the years of the locust, the great locust devastation—locusts savage, locusts deadly, fierce locusts, locusts of doom, that great locust invasion I sent your way. You’ll eat your fill of good food. You’ll be full of praises to your God; The God who has set you back on your heels in wonder. Never again will I despise you. You’ll know without question that I’m in the thick of life with you, that I’m your God, yes, your God, the one and only real God.Never again will I despise you.

One more thing: All this is for your good. I sympathize with you, I know your pain and weaknesses so I can’t and will never leave nor forsake you.Even to your old age and even to your grey hairs, I will carry and deliver you! Yes, I’m on my way to visit you with Judgment. I’ll present compelling evidence against sorcerers, adulterers, liars, those who exploit you, those who take advantage of you, those who are inhospitable to you—anyone and everyone who doesn’t honour me;I wont put on you more than you can bear.You can handle this!

Will you wait on me?

Lots of love
God,Your Father!

Your destiny is great!

Angels and Heroes by Brian Litrell

A while ago, someone sent me an email and asked ‘Are you a Pastor’? What do you intend to achieve by doing what you are doing?’ I smiled and I thank God for filling my heart with the right words with which to respond.

I’m a firm believer in God because I know no other way to make it without Him!! I don’t send you mails or write a blog because I feel like writing. I do what I do neither because I want to, nor because I’m forced too but because that is what I’m called to do. I’m simply obeying the call and I do so without apologies or fear of who will read this or not!!

As a new week lies ahead, I encourage you  to embrace the love which God freely gives. He is the beginning to a GREAT DESTINY! Your yesterday might not have been beautiful but your tomorrow promises to be better if only you will give way to Him in your life! You may be judged by your present predicament but that is in no way your defining factor. Don’t ever let anyone classify or set standards for your life; you are only what God say you are and nothing less. God’s standard is your measuring rod!!!

Don’t think of giving up; it’s never too late for God to bring about a turnaround, to change the chapters of your life. You’re never too old not to achieve destiny!!! You don’t know what God is working in your favour. Where you are at now is only a temporary season which is sure to fade and give way to a refreshing; Like Mya says in her song ‘After the rain’: ‘After the rain the sun shines then a brighter day; After the rain change comes nothing stays the same; Things gonna change; There’s no more pain after the rain’.

In conclusion. I say: ‘God can bypass every natural and man-made law to change your story. He is able to clean you and change you and dress you up with a new garment. Your destiny is great so please, I pray thee, don’t throw in the towel.’ ”Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland. Isaiah 43:18-19 (NIV).

Have a fulfilled and rewarding week!!!

Love and Blessings,Adja Amy.

You are not a ‘NOBODY’.GOD didn’t make a MISTAKE when He created you in His image and likeness. You are UNIQUE, BEAUTIFULLY CARVED, and guess what, THERE IS NOBODY LIKE YOU!!!

The WIND and RAIN may BREAK you BUT You CAN STILL MAKE A BETTER YOU EACH DAY…YES, YOU CAN! IT’S A JOURNEY!

The difference in achieving purpose or failure, is not in how you look, dress, nor in how much education you’ve had. It’s in how you THINK and SEE yourself in the midst of NEGATIVITY. The MIND- Attitude matters a great deal…
