Why on Earth Was I Born?


Being a teenager, there are times the reason of your birth crossed your mind. You could not understand the whole purpose of humanity or what role you had to play in it. Neither did you understand why you were not left wherever you were before you came to planet earth.

   God Almighty created earth, then gave man dominion over every thing he made in it. You were born to have dominion. You were born to dominate over resources, circumstances and situations. You also have a specific purpose to which you were created for. The purpose is so crucial that He (God) had to risk sending you from heaven to earth. He also made you perfectly to fulfil the plans He had in mind for you. He is so confident in you because manufacturers do not send products that they are not confident in to the market. That will tarnish their image and their brand. You are God's brand.

You were born for a specific purpose that only you alone can fulfil. You are on a mission that only you can accomplish. You were not born to go to school, get a job, pay bills, marry, have kids, own a car and house then die. NO! Instilled in you are talents, capabilities and infinite possibilities. You have passions which serve as landmarks and sign posts to lead you to your destiny and purpose. 

Do not ignore them. Do not let them die. Ignite your passions/talents, however odd you feel they may be. Unleash your potentials. Do not be confined to your family background, society and education. What you have in you exceeds all of those. Your Creator puts treasures in earthen vessels. Find the treasures!!

 If you don’t know your purpose in life, you’ll make many wrong choices and take detours. You’d also make manyunnecessary mistakes and waste your time.
I always tell people that they need a manual to operate a new gadget they have never used before. Likewise, you, being one of a kind, need a manual to operate and function to your full potentials. Dear reader, your manual is the Word of God. Dig into it today. You will find your true identity there.


ACTION PLAN: From today, take out time to study a devotional daily or the Bible. Ask God to guide you to make the best choices concerning your destiny and His specific purpose for your life.

I am praying for you

Authentic ways to rid anger

It's not surprising to see a gentle, calm person blaring off in anger on slight provocation. In fact it is often believed that the seemingly calm and quiet people are the ones who do unspeakable things when they are angry.This might not be far from the truth. Growing up, I was always the calm one who didn't have issues with anyone offending me but yet I found myself blaring off at someone who has offended me over a long period of time. The rage of my anger would be so fierce that people would conclude that I have been bottling up offences. After I'd finish venting off, I'd go to my room to wallow in guilt and self pity at my attitude. I'd keep asking myself why I lacked self control at the same time, trying to justify my anger. Afterwards, I'd avoid the person who made me angry as much as possible till I was satisfied at the distance kept.

The truth is that, this is not meant to be normal. This kind of anger leads to sin. Ephesians 4:26-32 says '...be angry …

Suicidal Thoughts

Suicidal thoughts are from the devil. He knows that once you kill yourself, you are going to meet him in hell. I know that there are lots of pressures around you and voices in your head to end it all but by the power in the Name of Jesus Christ, whom I serve and whose I am, as you read this blog post, those voices are silenced for life! Can I hear a resounding AMEN? AMEN!     Okay, so now, especially in Nigeria, recently we see on the news, people taking their lives due to their circumstances. One that struck me was that of a teenager in one of our universities. She took her life because her boyfriend broke up with her. Such a beautiful young lady but she wrote in her suicidal note that she didn’t see the purpose of her life. 
    See that? PURPOSE! Suicidal thoughts are all stemmed up from a feeling of lack of purpose to one’s life. It might be not having enough money or getting over a heartbreak. The devil uses that opportunity to tell you that lie that your life does not have any wo…

Rejection

You are not an ice cream, not everybody has to like you.    Rejection can be devastating. Rejection from a loved one, family, job or someone you held up in high esteem but hey, one rejection doesn't change the fact that you are amazing. See, when people reject you, don't blame yourself for "falling short or not being good enough" See it as them having a better option and you having an opportunity to be a better person. If you dwell on your rejection, you'll soon be a bitter person to be with.

    When Joseph in the bible was rejected and sold out to Egypt by His brothers whom he loved and brought food for while they worked, he didn't wallow in Egypt or brand himself as unlovable. Instead, he went from being a slave, to a prisoner, to the palace and finally a right hand man to the King of Egypt. Ultimately, his brothers came to beg him for food. So you see, Joseph was busy prospering instead of being bitter. He worked on himself, fixed his eyes on God and grew …
