Hey hey hey!
Hello everyone! I hope you’re doing great and getting better by the day! I’ve realized that in this life, there’s no middle ground. It’s either you’re moving forward, or you’re moving back. Stagnant water starts to smell when it’s not flowing somewhere else.
It happens to humans too! We start to ‘smell’ when we’re not improving. There’s no way to remain at one spot, move forward today!!!
Since Wednesdays are my ‘lighter notes’; I’d planned to talk about schooling in Ghana without any family around and what independence has taught me.
However, I feel I need to deviate from that today.
Here’s my reason.
My purpose is far greater than me! The reason for our lives cannot just be about us alone. People are connected to our destiny. No jokes!
So, I plan to read 3 books per month this year. I was confused about what book to read in February and God answered me. Out of the blue, I remembered a book I got for my roommate for her birthday last year. I never got one for myself, so I went to dig her book shelve and found it there.
The Lady, Her Lover and Her Lord – T.D Jakes.
I’ve not gotten half way and I already love the book! It’s divided into 3 segments as the title indicates, and the first one is all about the Lady!
A lady must first love herself and heal from past wounds before she can accept that God or any man loves her.
Anyway, suddenly a friend shares with me something she had been going through for a long while. I was amazed!
After helping with as much wisdom from myself, I felt the need to ask her to get that book as soon as possible! This is because what she is going through is exactly what I was currently reading in this book!
You might not see anything special here, but here’s my point again – Your destiny is ultimately larger than you!
God probably wanted me to start this book because He knew that someone connected to me was going to be in need of it!
Are you getting me?
Your life is greater than you!
If all there is to you is you, then you’ve not started walking in purpose!
You have been saved to serve!
Don’t be stingy with your salvation! Give of yourself.
Extend to others, what God has extended to you! Even if it’s a simple knowledge from a TD Jakes book.
But that simple thing you don’t want to share may hold the key to someone’s healing!
Again, I say, you’ve been saved to serve!
Don’t be stingy with your salvation!
Extend the hand God extended to you to others!
Short eey? Lol.
Thanks for reading!
Guess who made her first vlog (video)?
Yes, meee! Lol.
I made it with the hope that I’d be writing about independence and schooling in Ghana today. Oh well, God had different plans!
It’s quite short. Pardon anything you notice that should have been better, like when I said “Pauline, introduce yourself!”
Who does that? LOOL
I love you guys! Let me know your thoughts on today’s post.
God bless you.
Plus, I want us to try something different today.
Have you ever been in a situation where you realized that you went through something, in order to help another person who went through the samething?
Or have you been led to read a book, only to realize it was ultimately to help a friend?
I’d be expecting your thoughts and notes! And if today is your first time of commenting on the blog, I’d connect with you personally by sending a mail, where I request for your number. Yes, I’d like to talk and pray with you on phone!
Whoop! I’m excited.
