BELIEVE In Yourself. #Courage
Those challenges are not there to destroy you. Rather they are there to strengthen you, to help you to discover your potentials. To help you to unearth those hidden potentials To help you to discover the strengths that you may not know that you have. I want you to see it this way, those challenges, those obstacles, those adversity, may be that God is working behind the scenes. It may be that God is trying to direct your steps.
Sometimes we walk away from our path. We all have a path. We all have a destiny. We all have destination . Until you Learn to walk in your PATH, you’ll fail to succeed in whatever you put your hand to do and that is more reason why people fail in life. You have to discover your part and you have to do everything in your power to stay in your PATH. To stay on track. There are challenges and difficulties. There are obstacles everywhere.
I want you to see those obstacles as the Universe way of helping you to discover who you are on the inside. To discover the man or the woman you are on the inside.
I want you to see those obstacles as God’s love urging you to make that leap. Wanting you to come up to the next level. Just like when Jesus called unto Peter, he said; Peter come! But he was afraid to step into the water, to step out of the boat. The boat is our comfort zone and sometimes challenges and difficulties are God’s way of telling you; ‘It is time for you to abandon your comfort zone. It is time for you to abandon that your safe place. It is time for you to step into the water.’ The water here is all the challenges that we go through in life. They are the obstacles, They are the difficulties that most people try to shy away from, try to avoid, trying to dodge but not until you are able to, I call them process.
I call them process because untill you are able to embrace those process. Until you’re able to step into the process. Once you are able to say okay let me fear my fears but let me do what I need to do anyways. Let me face my fears but let me step up to that challenge. Take responsibility. It is easy for us to make excuses and give reasons why we can’t do a thing. We even listen to the lies of the Enemy.
We Listen to the lies of friends that are not good for us and they tell us we can’t do a thing. Listen, never you let somebody tell you that you can’t do a thing. Never you let somebody make you doubt yourself. Never you let somebody tell you that you are not able.
Listening, the scripture made us to understand that the grace of God is there for us and that it is always available. So tap into the grace of God in you. Look within , Look within you, you will find the strength that you need at any given moment that will enable you to overcome that situation. That will enable you to overcome that ugly situation .
You are not alone. You are not alone. You are never alone. The Grace is there for you. But not want untill you tap into the Grace, not until you believe in yourself, the world will not believe in You. Now I know the reason why sometimes Jesus will give signs and wonders. Because people sometimes they need to see signs and wonders for them to believe. And what are your signs and wonders? They are your POTENTIALS. Your GIFTS. Your God-given gifts. Your Talents.
What are you doing with your talents? What are you doing with your gifts? You are not working on yourself. You’re not developing your talents because, you don’t believe in yourself enough to take that steps.
Those TALENTS and those GIFTS are the SIGNS and WONDERS that the world need to SEE in you to believe in YOU. Now you see the importance of believing in yourself. Jesus said; If you ‘believe’, All things are Possible.
Believe in God – believe also in You. Jesus said; Believe in God, believe also in Me. You need to believe in yourself. You need to believe in yourself . It is not enough that you believe in God. And that’s why most of us, we spent time in praying. We spent time in fasting. We are expecting got to do everything for us. We are expecting God to make a miracle. But God does not use magic wand. I’ll say that again; God does not use magic wand. You have to make that step of faith.
You have to step into believing in God and also believing yourself. And how do you believe in YOURSELF. You believe in yourself when you start to take actions. When you start to do the things that you need to do. When you refuse to give up on yourself because of your past errors or because of your past mistakes. Another thing I want to tell you is this, Never you be ashamed of your Past. Never be ashamed of what you’ve been through in the past. Never be ashamed of what happened.
Whatever the ugly experience. Whatever the past errors or past mistakes. Never you be ashamed of your PAST.
The moment you start being ashamed of your past, it becomes a HANDICAP. It will sabotage your future. It will hinder you from making the necessary changes that you need to make in the present so that you can live that life of your dreams. It is God’s will that we live AMAZING life. It is God’s will that we implement on our gifts. That we GROW, that we keep GROWING. That we move from LEVEL to LEVEL.
Sometimes people look at me and they are amazed. They say How do you do these things. How do you get time to do all these things? Where do you get the strength? You know I believe that my life becomes an inspiration to the people that comes in contact with me. My life becomes a motivating factor because I believe in myself. I did not allow what I went through to choose the WOMAN I am today. I choose the woman I want to Be.
I learnt my lessons from all those challenges and what makes the difference is COURAGE. I think that I have more courage than most women out there who had the same experience that I had. Or that are right now going through the same experience. Courage makes a great difference. It is not by power. It is not by might. You need to tap into the grace of God in you. You need to have courage.
