Comparison: The Purpose Killer

I'm taking this topic because it is very very common amongst teenagers. One minute you're minding your business and bubbling, the other minute, you're poking your nose in another's business and feeling depressed.
What if I told you that there is no one on earth like you? Do you believe? You might not but believe this, someone else's light does not dim your own. We live in a society where we are quick to judge, quick to condemn, quick to compare, quick quick quick to be envious. Many of us have been victims and then, many of us are the culprits.

Checkout your fingerprints, there is no one in this world who has the same as yours. God is too spontaneous and creative to make two people alike. Therefore, there is no basis or justifiable common ground to compare yourself with another person. Even if you are a twin. Definitely definitely, your talents, gifts, purpose and dreams won't be the same. Reading through my blog, you'd see the whole concept is about PURPOSE. Everything you need to fulfil God's divine purpose on earth has been given to you and we all have unique purposes. So you don't expect God to give you the same giftings. Your height, weight, skin colour, long or short hair, passion, flaws etc all contribute to PURPOSE. Do not compare what you don't need to what someone else has. Trust me, if you needed that person's maths skills, witty brains, sweet voice or artistic hands in your journey through life, God would have given you. He's too faithful to leave you stranded on earth.

Here's what you should do my dear, instead of looking at another person's processed gold, process your own gold. We all have treasures in earthen vessels, it's just that some have worked on theirs and refined theirs so well that they are now shinning. But like I said earlier, someone else's shining does not dim your own. Also, don't try to fit in but stand out in your uniqueness. That is only when purpose can be fulfilled and enjoyed.

God is waiting for you to use what you have to change your world. I am waiting to use what you'll share to the world. You might just have great inventions in you but stop wasting your time looking at what you don't have. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Precious words from our saviour Lord Jesus Christ, found in Matthew chapter 5:16.

Me I am using my writing talent to glorify my Father in heaven. Are you using what He gave you to glorify Him?

Action point: Write out twenty things you like about yourself and Thank God.

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 …

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…

The other view of School

Before I start, don't get it twisted, I love education - I really do! I love reading, I love knowing. I use Google and YouTube voraciously.
Learning makes us wiser and smarter. It makes us to know the minds of great men. Education equips me to be in charge of my earnings. But school? School boxes me in, school tries to put me in an unfair competition with my peers. School teaches me the minds of men whose ideas are now getting outdated. School sets an exam to test my memorization skill and not my true ability. School streamlines my creativity. School tries to make me like everyone else. 


Now you may ask, don't you get educated in school? May I define education for you? The term education has been derived from the Latin word 'educere'. The term 'educere' means 'to lead out', 'to draw out' and 'to bring from'; Each and every child has innate powers. The innate powers of the child should be properly cared, given scope to develop. It should be…
