​Much unhappiness has come into the world because of bewilderment and things left unsaid.” 

― Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Yes I concur to this great writer. People are devastating because of not being honest to themselves and specific on their goals. 

A reference point:

Hannah’s name meant “grace” or “favor.” The thing about Hannah that we know was the cause of great suffering was that she was barren. In the culture of that time, that was devastating. You see, God promised to bless his people when they were in the land, and one of his forms of blessing was children. *So, if a person did not have children—if a woman did not have children–and obviously Hannah was the one at fault, because her husband had children, that meant several things.*First off, it meant that it was a reproach. It was the kind of thing where all your neighbors said, “Well, there’s really something wrong with her, because if she weren’t a sinner then she would have children.” It meant that her personal worth, which was so dependant on her function, was diminished, because she did not function in the only way a woman should function: that was to give sons to her husband. Hmm! What a great trouble of the soul!!


But there comes a day Hannah understood a great thing that differentiate here andther. “T” the only difference and it signifies time. She understood it is time to be honest with herself in finding solution. She knew in her demands that there’s still something she honestly need to say while praying.

You see, Hannah had to come to a decision: was this status quo going to go on forever? Was she forever just going to see Peninnah having one baby after another and she having none; and was she going to be satisfied with that? Or was she going to make an all-out commitment to the Lord and go for broke? She’d come to the end of her resources, and so she comes before the Lord.  I think Hannah wasnt realised before that it was her fault not getting birth and not be honest and specific in her prayer. Because of her name meaning is grace but why the grace not sufficient for her. 

 See what she undergo when she realised. 

Sam.1:11 the words relate her emotional state with honesty. She no longer deceive herself. “O LORD of hosts, if you will only look upon your servant’s misery and remember me…..

Some of us, when we are the point of confusion we mumur instead of beimg honest and being sincered. We don’t think that something needed a change in our lives and need a thorough discussion by you, your spirit and your soul. I think it is time to check time, discover, be specific, be honest and leave them unsaid. Remember when you discover, you are liable to cover a wide range.

Be what you needed to be.
 

Val, a bridge or a wall.

You ​don’t marry someone you can live with – you marry the person who you cannot live without. Bridge and wall are both by-product of a cement, so also hatred and love are both by-product of val. Fast loosing the true foundation of val causes unending injuries. Val is a  foundation of everlasting joy among nations, neigbourhood, lovers, etc. But verily i say, val stands as a bridge or barriers depending on how effective and efficient we use it. It is not a day of vowing promises upon promises but a day of showing effectively its importance.

Is val a bridge?, yes it is. As it is called, val is a day of remembering and defining true affections, unending love towards our associates. Val bridges and mould the pillar of true picture of the world from ages. How it suppose to look like. A day of reconciling and valuing humans of our nature. Jesus shows the true meaning by carrying the cross. A day standing as bridge, a road that links associates, neighbourhood and lovers together to know the true meaning of the world. Make your day, home, life and environment fill of joy, love and affections. If its not working, !ake it works.

Is it a wall?, yes of course. Val can be a day where a step taking becomes an eternal regret. A day where the wall it produces among the so called lovers can simply be compared to the wall of Jericho that place embargo between Israelites and Canaan land.  Val is not defined around promises that can’t be fulfilled. But a day of kindness, love, affection and not a day with a sweet coated mouth of unfulfilled promises. With this, val is painted different colours which make it looses its taste even before arrival. To many, val is a significant of unwanted day they never determined to see once again. 

Why should the greatest day of refreshment become a reckoning day?. No it shouldn’t 

Take away the real story of val, the true love and see how the earth becomes tomb. Dont forget once the val looses taste every other days among friends, associates and lovers becomes a tomb.

DEBORAH THE BRAVE, BARAK THE COWARDICE

Deborah was one of the judges of Israel during a time of oppression. She is called a prophetess and the wife of Lappidoth. The Lord spoke through her as she held court under a tree called “the Palm of Deborah” in Ephraim. The Lord also used her to set her people free and defeat the king of Canaan. Deborah’s story is found in Judges, chapters 4 and 5.

Deborah was Israel’s only female judge. Some scholars have suggested that her position as judge was itself a judgment on the weak-willed men of Israel. Because Israel’s men were unfit to judge, God chose a woman for the job, partly to shame the men who should have taken the leadership. Other commentators believe that Deborah’s role as judge was a sign of God’s comforting presence in the midst of His oppressed and downtrodden people. 

Lesson: if you refuse to carry and extend the glory deposited in you over others, many will be raised to discharge such. Stop wasting talent but embrace it.

When Deborah became judge, the Israelites had been subjugated for 20 years by Jabin, king of Canaan. The commander of Jabin’s army was named Sisera, and he had 900 iron chariots – formidable weapons against Israel’s foot soldiers (Judges 4:3). The Israelites were treated very cruelly by Sisera and his army, and Israel’s spirits were very low. Deborah describes the hardship of living under Jabin and Sisera this way: “The highways were abandoned, and travelers kept to the byways. The villagers ceased in Israel; they ceased to be” (Judges 5:6-7). In other words, people feared to leave their; traveling was very dangerous. 

Lesson learnt: your purpose and glory wasn’t meant for you alone but needs to manifest for those attach to you that 

Here is a man God has called but refuses, Barak. Every one just needs to listen and obey. Take up the tasks. Deborah was a mighty woman, a prophetess ready for anything provided it was ordered by God. She played important role in killing the warrior of Jabin king of Canaan, Sisera. But I will like to emphasis on the life Barak. Verse 6 says ” And she sent and called Barak the son of Abinoam out of Kedeshnaphtali, and said unto him, *Hath not the LORD God of Israel commanded, saying, Go and draw toward mount Tabor, and take with thee ten thousand men of the children of Naphtali and of the children of Zebulun?”*

Before God told Deborah. Am sure he would have personally called on Barak but he intended of not hearing anything. My question: can God call anyone without giving him or her his assurance support. Verse 7 says “And I will draw unto thee to the river Kishon Sisera, the captain of Jabin’s army, with his chariots and his multitude; and I will deliver him into thine hand”. What assurance do we need more than this. 

Yet, he was still scare about God’s assurance. This happen to many lives where they simply neglect God’s word because of the circumstances surrounding. This childish act lock many potentials and dreams in a cage of unfulfilling.

Lesson learnt: Many were caged by their mountains. Try to move the mountains, shift the base. Deborah face it and conquer. Face yours and it shall move. Unlock your potentials and purpose of being here.


Whole lesson learnt

Despite the circumstances surrounding, especially concerning the great warrior ” Sierra”, Deborah summon courage and face the mountain by ready for the war against Sierra and she won. Face your mountain and shift the mountain

Barak was a coward, upon all the assurance he was still scared. Many of us scare for mountain waiting for our manifestation so that it can move. But many saw mountain but could not overcome. What a pity!. Face your mountain and it will shift.

IS THERE MORE TO LIFE?

Whether we are satisfied or dissatisfied with our dealings in life, the utmost goal of majority of us is retirement. Though, we were born just to go through certain life rituals: find a job, get married, buy a house, raise children, change wardrobes, jobs or  careers, retire and then die. But, is that all?

Do we have a sense of personal purpose? Do we simply know why we were born? Did our reasons give us a passion for living?. Answer to my publication ‘ WHY AM I HERE?’. Yes we really need to have reasons for existence. Life is absolutely embedded with meaning. If we envisage only after working for years for gold wristwatch and a pension, then I say life is a tragedy in the making. We only know why we exist when we were meant to be going some where.

No matter how much money we gather, if we don’t have a clear vision of our race, we are truly poor. It is said that if we don’t know where we are going, any roads take us there. Unless you have a clear idea of where you are to go, the chances that you will get there are remote.

ARE YOU FULFILLING PURPOSE? Do you find happiness in discharging duties? are you truly there?

Myle  Munroe said “The poorest person in the world is a person of no dream”.

#4. There’s no joy in victory without running the risk of defeat.

I heard you are boycotting failure. Let me ask, can anyone boycott being pursued by his/her shadow?. Capital NO. Therefore, no success without a failure/ defeat. Always keep in mind that loosing is part of a winning. When you fall down, get up and keep moving. 

It is by trying things you figure out how far you can go.

Don’t be afraid about failure or embarrassed by the failure. All you should care for is not to dwell in it. Be happy because failing is a signal to winning. 

However, a defeat or failure is difficult, painful, frustrating, leaves pieces of you destroyed on the floor and makes you doubt yourself – no matter your age. But never relent, see it as a necessary tool for unquantified success. 

Try it more, but in a new dimension, a new reasoning, a new ideas and with a methodology.

#​3. Take whatever you can from your life because because when life starts taking from you, it takes even your last breath.

Life is like a convergence theory. It catches us up as we grow if we refuse to understand how to take from it. If you don’t take it, you depreciate and the life remain constant, then the expenditure of life catches u up.

Here are the important part u can simply take from it

 PRODUCTIVITY: How you invest your time is a reflection of how you invest your money. The brilliant and wealthy ones cherish investing their time, they see each year, month, week, day and minute as an opportunity to invest. Efficiency is a process, failure to prepare is preparing to fail.

SELF DEVELOPMENT: Your habit can make you or break you. You are what you eat, read, talk, etc. Don’t forget your inner circle is your dream team.

  What you surround yourself with determine your growth in life. Your life is a reflection of how well you know yourself and the life itself. Stay positive

RELATIONSHIP: it is the foundation of the extent you reach in life. The most difficult relationship is the one you have to yourselves. I called it self esteem, without having a positive relationship with yourselves, every other relationship remains unsuccessful. 

Having positives self relationship then friendship and love relationship have their ways.

HEALTH. This is a great resources given to mankind by God. It is your temple treat it better. Too much glucose and the body crash, lack of sleep not too good, and physical training a dose for an healthy body. Manage God’s given resources well.

You don’t get anywhere trying cut off the line. Watch and take it in time before it starts taking it back.

Thanks

#2 When someone hurts you, don’t feel bad because it’s a law of nature that the tree that bears the sweetest fruits gets maximum number of stones.

Give me a successful man and I will tell you number of distractions he/she neglected in maintaining a positive focus in life.  

They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures. They stay focus om their journey rather been wasting time, energy and resources  on stones around. They act on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them. 

Stones will surely come, but to some is a blessing while to others is a barrier.

Don’t give up because of stones if you don’t want to go down. Don’t relax if you don’t want to be released. Don’t slow down because of stones if you don’t want to end low. Press on if you don’t want to be pressed on. 

Stand up out stones if you don’t want to be pushed down. Don’t rest too early if you don’t want be laid to rest too early.

Thanks for reading. Watchout for #3.
