Keep on keeping on!!

Hello Hello Beautiful people 🙂

Yet another week coming to an end, this was a tiring and long week for me. I can only say that I deserve a good rest and a perfect treat to have finally survived 🙂

I am sure that a lot of people have had a moment at some point in their lives where they just sit down and ask themselves (why is my life in such chaos?), (when am I getting my breakthrough?), (why do I have to go through this?) well, I am here to tell you that you are not alone, tribulations are part of life and the sooner you STOP and accept that, it is when you put yourself in a better position to deal with life and all the stones that will be thrown at you.

We have created a world where facing troubles can only be escaped through suicide, alcohol, drugs and all the other things. It fazes me so much that as humans, we were born with the instinct to not give up, look at this; a toddler would scream, bang themselves against the wall, kick whatever that is on their way and cry for the longest hours till they get what they want, but as we grow up we tend to lose that ability and kill that instinct.

Why has that happened?

We also tend to throw ourselves miserable pity parties and try to invite as many people as we can so that everyone can join us in our misery. There is nothing that is time wasting as a pity party, they can only drown you and suck every bit of hope you had in you.

No one was ever put on a pedestal and said “Life would be as easy as 1-2-3”, even God Himself never promised a life free of troubles but He promised full supply of strength, steadfastness, endurance, hope and comfort. We do no mercy to ourselves when we keep seeking a trouble free life, the hunt of such a non existent life will do nothing but devastate us.

Remember, each and everyone of us is born with a purpose, it does not matter what kind of faith you have or religion you follow. God has planted a purpose in each and everyone of us, this purpose is so powerful and glorious that the enemy’s job is to kill, steal and destroy it. The moment you are born, is the moment you step into your purpose because you were created to serve a purpose on this earth.

Yes, we cannot live a life where we are as tough as a stallion, we will have moments of breaking down and thinking of giving up but we need to develop the spirit of keeping on. You will be kicked so many times while you are down but always know that there is someone who is going through worse and there is always hope, and that hope is worth fighting for.

In the midst of it all, I am going to be blunt and tell you that (IT IS OKAY NOT TO BE OKAY BECAUSE YOU ARE HUMAN) but “STOP the endless pity parties, stop crying endlessly, get up and lean on God, you can only be made strong by the strength you get from Him.

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, when you encounter trial of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance” James 1 verse 2-3.

This the craziest scripture I have ever read during a time when I was hopeless, in the midst of disappointment, depression  and devastation. How do you turn your misery into joy? My friend when the enemy does not try to knock you out will all sorts of blows you must get worried, he never wastes his time trying to fight a dead soldier, you are alive and he trembles the moment you open your eyes every morning.

Lean unto God and keep on keeping on.

Psalm 27:1 

“The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”

Psalm 138:3 

“In the day when I cried out, You answered me, and made me bold with strength in my soul.”
