But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

Remember, no matter how high the mountain of challenges you are facing, you can fly above them!

Wise people remind themselves that every day could be their last. In doing so, they make it their commitment to be love rather than fear during the hours of their day. And they continually choose to be extraordinary – even when it is difficult – versus ordinary. – Robin Sharma

You Can Do All Things!

Today as I listened to the Lighthouse Family’s “Life’s a dream” song, I thought about the many people out there who aren’t living their dreams yet. And like the Light house Family, I ask this; “What are you gonna do with your life? When are you going to spend your time the way that you’ve always wanted?”

You see life is quite tricky. It’s easy for you to lose your dreams in the small comforts and pleasure you receive either in your present work, relationship, ministry, or venture. Don’t be caught in that trap! Remember the story of Esau and Jacob in the Bible, how Esau lost his inheritance just for a mere plate of porridge to satisfy his present need? It’s still happening now! Many people are exchanging their destinies for a pay check; many in a desperate need to be married, settle for just any man or woman instead of the opportunity to wait and have their destined partners. Many people due to impatience aren’t in the right ministry God has called them into. What a waste of life!

We all have dreams. At some point or the other in our lives, we have had dreams. Some dream of travelling around the world, others dream of establishing their own businesses and being financially free. Yet for some it is to coach, train or teach other people, and so on. Can you remember yours? Continue reading

Reflection: Everyone Has an Expiration Date

Yesterday, these words; “Life…..a treasured gift never to be taken for granted. For, each one of us has an expiration date.” by Kim Gosselin on her blog, got me reflecting on the number of minutes, hours, days, months, and years I take for granted. There are so many things I should do that I don’t do, I push them forward, telling myself I can do them later, maybe tomorrow, or there is still time, no need to rush and so on.

As I look around me, I see a lot of people living life the way I do, always thinking there still time, or we still have many years ahead of us. And with this mentality, we take things for granted, and don’t cherish some moments, or gifts life gives us. Everyone is on the move always working, always doing, always gathering….Saving for the future, planning for the future, yet our lives will end, as everyday draws us closer to that expiration date!

Are you satisfied with the life you are living? Would you honestly say you are living your dreams this moment? Take a moment and reflect like I did…there isn’t so much time. Continue reading

You’ve Come too Far to Turn Back Now

Why do you want to turn back now after putting so many years, months, weeks, or days of your time, money, and energy into your dreams? Some of us are like a group of people that set out on a journey of 10hrs, and after putting in 7hrs of their time without realizing it, decide to quit and head back home because they aren’t there yet, and can’t see their destination in view. But they forget that it will take much more energy to walk back home than it will require to continue on the journey since they are almost there!

Folks, in that path of yours; whether it’s your marriage, relationship, business, life calling, or whatever pursuit you are embarking on, you have come too far to think of looking back. Do you realize your feet have walked through the valleys of life, you have climbed the mountains of opposition, and challenges, crossed rivers, and so many good people have deserted you because you chose this path? No matter how hard it’s getting now, think about what you’ve been through. Don’t let the enemy have the last laugh!

Keep pushing you are closer than you know it! Continue reading

God’s Working on it. Hold On

There are days in our lives, when everything seem so dark around you, yet God says He has got good plans for us, plans to give us a hope and future. But when we look at our lives there seem to be nothing to show that His word is being manifested; there’s no job, no food, no husband, no wife, no kids, heavily in debts. In my life I have had those days, I believe someone reading this might have gone through that phase, where you go back to God and say, “please Father, show me a glimpse of those good plans.” “I don’t want much, just a little to fix my life up.”

But God is telling all us going through one dark moment or the other, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.”(John 13:7) Just hold on, and let Him finish His good work in your life. It may seem too slow, or too long. But if you hang on and keep the faith, and not be too quick to complain about the trials, sicknesses, and pains you are facing, you will realize God’s noble goal in your life which is; Continue reading
