Perfect Imperfections

Walk with me and be thou perfect


Those are the words from Our heavenly father to a man who later became a father of many nations (Abraham). Let me point out that God told him to 'walk with me'..meaning, come and start a journey with me towards perfection. This is deep. Many of us think God is looking for finished products to work with or someone with less flaws but from His words to Abraham, we see that, the road to perfection is walking with Him with our imperfections. We can also infer that Abraham was not a perfect man before he was called by God.

In your journey through life, your skills, ability, communication skills, network will be limited but it shouldn't stop you from walking with God. Even your character, behaviours, attitude and bad habits will scream out loud but, hey, God still wants to walk with you. There's something called 'On the job training'. That is, working at the same time learning how the job is done. Don't let your limitations stop you from attaining perfection and don't wait for perfect conditions or wait till you're totally perfect (whatever your definition of perfect means) before you step out and shine/dominate.

All it takes to be perfect in the eyes of God is to keep on walking with HIM. Regardless of your secret sins, flaws, mistakes, disorganized life, guilt. All He needs you to do is show up at His presence. He is willing to walk with You, guide you, tutor you, carry you, lead you till you BECOME as He is.

So today, what have you been postponing, waiting for perfect conditions or to be 'perfect' before you execute? Get on it now. Start somewhere and you'll see yourself getting better at it. If it's your fellowship with God, trust me, He'll love and accept you as you are. Speak to Him today and lay your burdens of imperfection on Him while He leads you to perfection.

Action plan: meditate on Matthew 11 : 28 "Come unto me, all you who Labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

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…
