FAITH Comes by HEARING

I was going to start with sob stories about some unpleasant experiences that caused a dent in my self-esteem and caused a lot of confident issues but forget that. We all have had bad experiences in life and even the bible tells us that sufficient for each day is its own troubles so we are all bound to face some sort of challenges at one point or the other in our lives.

The question is how we respond to the different situation in our lives. Some of us may be in or may have grown up in very nasty circumstances could have been bullied (like me) or abused or had gone through some sort of bad circumstance that caused you to lose faith in yourself and not be confident in who you are today.

I am a firm believer of the fact that you are what you continuously give heed to and believe. There’s a popular scripture “Faith comes by hearing” and most of us believe what we believe mostly based on what we’ve been taught, seen and learnt from childhood mostly from those who raised us.

God wants us to turn our ears and eyes in the right direction and take charge of the situation in your life, if there’s anything I’ve learnt from experience is that God’s word brings life and healing. For some of you it may mean repeating these words to yourself every day to get yourself to believe that you are not a mistake or a waste of space and you have a purpose on this earth and you’re just darn beautiful because God made you! I have put a few scriptures below that I encourage myself daily with [you can google it if you don’t have a bible]; keep repeating it to yourself and remember God’s word never returns to him void…

[2 Timothy 1:7, Romans 8:28, Psalm 139:13-14, Proverbs 3:26, Philippians 4:6-7, 2 Corinthians 12:9]

WRONG CHOICE!!!

Deut 30:19; I have set before you life and death, Choose LIFE!

Deut 30:19; I have set before you life and death, Choose LIFE!

I had this place I decided impromptu to go and meet up with girlfriends and it was going to involve quite a bit of travelling. Later on that week I thought to myself I haven’t actually prayed about it So I did and asked God and I knew that God had convicted me not to go but then again I had already made up my mind I wanted to go and for god sakes I’ve been stressed all week or maybe I told myself so and I didn’t really see any reason I couldn’t go and have clean fun after all it was just an overnight thing so how much can go wrong in one night right? Well by now we all can tell how it went at the end of the day.

So many things went wrong and I was more at a loss than any gain at all but the one thing I remembered while returning from is that God pointed out to me that at the end of the day He’s going to show me the right path but its left for me to choose what path I wanted to follow. In this case I was more willing to fulfil my own desires than listen to God cuz in my head, His idea didn’t make sense. God is not forceful and gave us all free will for a reason and at some point when things were going wrong I began to ask God if he was punishing me but He said no, that I’m only bearing the consequences of my own actions and choices. it’s just like you willingly put your hand in a fire after you’ve been told not to then on getting burnt do u think you’re being punished by the person who warned you or you are bearing the consequences you brought upon yourself think about it…
