YOU ASK WHY?

Good morning my very wonderful people. I’m trusting the morning is indeed a lovely one. This is the day that the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it! Oh yes. πŸ™‚ So today, I’ll be talking a little about myself. Lately I’ve been having pep talks with self and it is not only helping me have a positive mindset, it is helping me maintain the same. It is helping me understand why situations might be as they are. We all go through stuff, sometimes it really sucks, we sulk and complain, we are bitter yet we do not understand, so we ask ourselves why.

My profession as at now is Customer Service. This will be my 4th year in this field and I thank God so much for the experience and the extensive skill and knowledge. Now, it got me to a certain point that I had done enough. I mean, you see that particular time you get to say “enough is enough?” Well that has been me for quite sometime. Let me warn you that if you are about venturing into this field, it is routine. Every morning you will have to think of how differently you can work so as to make it interesting. So, that’s a 365 days task. Imagine, 4 years! Hehe. I was like, “God, how much longer will I be needing to do this?”

10e5c127c1ee43b002f0b2018fb5e9f5.jpgNow, it was until recently that I got to realize something. I even got to encourage a friend of mine with the same. Often as humans, when we have done something for far too long, it stops getting interesting and becomes rather boring. What’s more painful is that nothing else seems to work. It is at that particular point that all doors and windows seem shut.

So, I began to pray and also asked others to pray with and for me. I joined friends who were in my shoes and felt as bad as i did for not seeing a breakthrough come close. It was beyond much we could comprehend at the time, and the much we could do was pray. The much I could do, was pray. It remained and still is a special intention, because I still trust God for a turnaround. Now, I’m not complaining, I’m telling you my story and at the end, I will help you see the light in this you may be calling a misfortune. Believe me, it is not.

You will agree with me that as the picture explains it above, you would have asked a similar questions. In tears, I questioned but I never saw a forthcoming answer until recently. I felt I wasn’t living my purpose anymore. I didn’t delight in what I was doing. Worry is an enemy of joy. It blinds us from feeling the power within us and how we can make a diamond out of some dull personality. Worry blinds us from seeing the possibility we are already living in. Worry causes us to want to rush rather than make best use of the present moment. Worry drifts us far away from God because in our not seeing the result of our prayers, we end up feeling like He doesn’t really care.

Now, as I was talking to my friend yesterday about this same same issue, this is what came to mind. The very same statement that has inspired my post today.

“Do it. You’ll be great. It all starts with a small step you know? Sometimes I think in looking for jobs, the Lord still wants us to make best use of the gifts, the talents and abilities. So that in waiting, we are still truly happy. Because we are doing what we love.”

So yes, that apparently became my latest discovery. Do we thank life? No. We thank God who in every situations gets to make certain revelations to us at the appointed time it is supposed to. You know God has gifted each one of us differently. He may have gifted you with drawing skills, writing skills, swimming skills, cooking skills, tailoring skills, it is so much. I can tell you for sure that you can make an all rounded person if you were to figure out just how much you can do.

In your heart, you will get that feeling of wanting to do something very often. You probably want to spend some few hours of the day at the studio with your band, making good music. You probably want to spend some few hours on your computer, writing useful articles. You probably want to spend a few hours in your kitchen, making good food. It’s all skill and God has gifted you.

Now, it is probably that time we stopped asking “Why”, me included. That time we probably stopped feeling bad because of being rejected at interviews. Stopped feeling bad for getting regret letters and so so much that’s a negative kind of force from the external. The internal is much more powerful. Begin to get addicted to your passion (in a good and positive way). A kind of addiction that will not only bring self satisfaction (which is important) but also reach out to those around you in an amazing kind of way. As you wait, do what you love and the Lord in His infinite goodness and mercy will bless every area of your life.

As for me, in my waiting, I decided to positively get addicted to my passion of writing. I would not keep going had it not been the positive thoughts I receive from people like you who get to read all round. Sometimes I’m afraid that when I write, I’m not making any sense. I want to delete everything and just let it be, but I go ahead and write anyway. That is because I love it.

So I will encourage you this way darling. In pursuing what you love, do not be afraid to disappoint. Do it anyway. Along the way you will fall, you will receive negative critics but that should not be the reason you remain on the ground. Your patience will be the reason you shine someday. You will shine in brilliance.

I would love to relate today’s post to this word of God: “Habakkuk 2:3

79d9cac692295061f4b0f5d4b0dfa614
Be brave in waiting! πŸ™‚ God surely will bring it to pass.

So thank you very much guys for being with me through this post. You’re the reason I will not stop because everyday, we learn together. Share widely to help another person as it may have helped you. πŸ™‚

From my heart to yours. πŸ™‚

 

HE CALLS ME

That you may know that it is I the Lord, who calls you by your NAME! (From Isaiah 45:3)

b5ee73138dc155081c8cfdbefaedf76a.jpgGood morning beautiful one. Good morning handsome one. Well I have decided to use “individual” kind of greeting because I want you to read the message that I will be passing here as an individual, internalize it and then get sharing it. Alright?

Great! So how has been your weekend? I have been on leave for about two weeks, but I did keep in touch. I’m now back to work and first day feels like I just resumed school from holiday. Well, let that pass and let’s get down to business. Oh yes?

There are two things that came to mind this morning while I was seated in that matatu coming to work. Traffic was crazy by the way. Was it just me? So what came to mind was, “others’ opinion” and “scars” and having combined the two, I came up with “God’s calling”

So here is the thing. Very often our lives have been driven by the opinions of other people. Sad to say, it is something that gets stuck on us like some kinda superglue. Sometimes it’ll be us that get asking either our friends or people that know us too well what they think about us. The response they give us is what we get to go by. We do not think twice. We do not analyze it. We ate satisfied. If it’s good, it is good and if it’s bad, then it is bad.

The scar: Now this is the kind of image that’s imprinted in our minds by that very opinion that people make. It could be something very small, or something very very big. Let us take for example, a friend came and told you, “I have noted that lately, you eat a lot. You’ll probably not stop that habit of eating too much, now that it’s already happening.”

Aha! There we go. That one opinion brews many, many other things like “I’m a glutton.”, “That’s why I’m so big” etc etc. Sometimes a friend may decide to treat you with a lunch date, dinner, but because you have that image in your head of who you are because of that opinion, then you will either decline or go on and eat very little (not to your satisfaction) so you won’t get judged. Eh

Well, that is just but a tip of the iceberg. You know? I want to encourage you and me to stop so much relying on other people’s opinion. What does it matter what they think? I know that is a very tough question I asked because yes, many times it does matter what other people think. I will tell you what you’re needing most other than opinion that derails and worsens your wonderful personality.

I’m thinking of beginning some kind of exercise. And this is something I’d want us to do as some kind of “note to self” or “opinion to self”. Yes. The only thing that should matter when it comes to opinion is what Your Father in heaven thinks. What do you think He thinks?

John3:16 For God so loved Lucy (insert your name, that’s mine) that He gave His only begotten Son. That if Lucy believes in Him, she shall not perish but have everlasting life!

Usually, the scripture above which we all learnt when we were very little is known as God’s love letter, or message etc. If God thinks that you are worth dying for, will it matter what I think about you? If God would give such a sacrifice for your atonement, why would an opinion of someone who thinks you’re not even worth a minute of their time matter?

God calls you beautiful. He calls you beloved. He calls you Princess, Prince, and so so many things we are looking for, from people that will not call or give us that. Wake up and call yourself beautiful/handsome and the best because even if you do not see it, that is exactly what you are. And if you do not believe it, it shall not be until you believe!

So what is it you need from people and what do they need from you? Last week I had a conversation with a good friend of mine, and apparently, we were talking about the opinion of people. Here are the lyrics of a song she suggested, of a song with the title, “I need the prayers”

I need the prayers of those I love,
To help me in each trying hour,
To bear my tempted soul to Him,
That He may keep me by His pow’r.

Prayers are what we need from others and what they need from us. That way, God forever remains in our midst and He becomes what matters to us most. I pray that after reading this, your perspective gets to change, in realizing just how worthy of love you are.

God bless you and thank you very much for reading. Share widely.

From my heart to yours. πŸ™‚

 

NEVER HIS, JUST OURS

Heeeey good people, well, I came across this particular photo somewhere on Pinterest and I was like, “Oh hey, this is so true? ” Hehe. I’m I wrong? Anyway, it has been a few days past and I didn’t get to say anything, but then now I’m here, and I mean, I will always be here. 

Well, I do not want to talk like one who’s love phobic, or to sound like one that knows too much, or to say and not mean it. I will just get to say, that which I know. 

How often have we trusted our decisions 100%? Trusted ourselves so much that we didn’t want anyone telling us anything besides what we already knew and felt? I know it is one too many times… Ah! I’m not even an exception.  Whether or not the decision was wrong, it satisfied us. 

I would love to mention just a few pointers on how, we fail to align our will with God’s own, in our love lives today. Wooooooh…. A little jitters I must say. Doctor love? No. Too much experience? No. Perfectionist? No. A learner? YES! Hehe. You must now think, “She may not have anything to share. After all, we all are learning.” Let us see. 😊. Where are we going wrong? 

  1. We stopped to pray. 

Do you remember that hour? It must have been a day you took. A night, a week. I do not know. That period of time you normally would pray for a life partner? God answered you. He did. And later, He was of no use. You have what you wanted, let God go back where He came from. 

  1. Worshipping the relationship. 

Oh yes! This is too common for us all. When we are finally in and in love, our lives begin to totally get dominated by it. Left, right and centre. Our friends, we don’t need them. Our youth colleagues and the activities, I don’t need it. The church, forget it. Praying? Ah never. 

  1. Too much self trust. 

Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you the way in which you should go. Give you counsel and watch over you. 

Often when I think of those moments of pride and confusion, this prayer and scripture comes to mind. We often want to believe that things should go our way. It is often what we feel that we want. How about God? Does He want it? Is He in agreement. Does He counsel you day by day, asking you to stay and guiding you through a particular path? πŸ™Š

  1. The judge

When you have fallen in love and are now in and in. Have you come to evaluate this other person? Always pointing out their mistakes? How they speak? How they eat etc? Is that how you learn them? Where is room for love if they are now suddenly in your chart so you’d observe? I know. We have all fallen in here. 

God simply finds us fit, and gives us that mandate to take care of those He puts into our care. How? To thank Him for them. To pray for their best always. To bring them through tough moments by speaking hope to them. To pray with them. To love them how we can, trusting God to teach and guide us. Not leading them to sin. Forgiving them. 

So what did I mean, Never His, just ours?

I meant that for so long, God has stopped mattering to us and especially when it comes to love. We don’t trust His will anymore. We have gone blind and done so much that we have regretted later. We probably were with wrong people, other times pushed the right people away, and much much more. When God is in it, we will understand His will. We will have patience. We will know what is best and what’s not. Because, love is patient and kind, love is generous, love does not keep record of wrongs etc. 

You know that scripture in Corinthians yes? Let us always pray this prayer. 

Father Lord, I thank You for hearing me. You are the guardian of my heart and of my life. You have entrusted him/her to me. May I not seek to compromise anything and especially out of selfishness. Instead, may I seek to love as Your word has taught me to. May I not focus so much on self that I forget You. Instead, may I always entrust myself, him/her to Your will, so that you will instruct and counsel us. Most importantly, may Your will be more important than my very own. More than anything else my Jesus, I love You and I thank You. Alleluia. Amen. 

You may share this widely, so That we all get to learn one or two things. I’m so glad you passed by and read. Thank you. 

From my β™₯ to yours with love. 😊

YOU’RE MOVING POWER

You have been born and left alone. You’ve perhaps been saved by Good Samaritans who’ve been able to put you up in a Children’s Home. At the time it is all happening, you aren’t aware of it. That’s because you’re feeding, you’re sleeping, you’re playing, and by God’s grace, you’ve been granted a chance to go to school. 

Time is passing by. You begin to see things unmask themselves. In your school are so many people, some are used to coming with their parents and that’s who they are directly involved to. Sometimes your teacher will need you to send reports to your parents or even have you bring them over to school. 

You have known other children who’ve grown up as you, and you all get to call Matron “mother”. Could she have given birth to y’all? Of course not! It is then that you begin to ask questions. It is then that you begin to feel under privileged. It is then that you begin to pity self. Why? The fact that you have no parent to run to makes you feel like an exception. Like you haven’t been born to succeed. 

Little by little you begin to keep away from your friends. You feel alone. Yes there are others who are in your similar kind of situation, but they’ve found a life. They have found family with you and the rest. They have found a mother who never was there in matron. They have been abandoned yes, but the truth is they are not alone. The family is much bigger and greatly accepts them, and you. 

Your performance in school is deteriorating. You were among the best but because you have a picture imprinted in your mind that you are unfortunate, your performance begins to reflect just that. 

All this time, you are not aware that there’s a light in you dimming. You are not aware that there’s a power in you that’s being put to rest. There’s so much in you that is beginning to stagnate. “Mother” is worried. The teachers are worried. Your friends are worried, but you are not. 

However, there is something that gets everyone including yourself perplexed. It is the School’s price giving day. You don’t expect to get a reward, because you know for sure how badly you have been performing. As usual, there’s performances expected to keep the guests entertained. You offer to sing a song for the crowd. You have never done it before but you feel inside of you, you need to give the audience an exuberant kinda performance. 

So it is your turn. You’re at the front. You think it’s just ordinary that you’re standing there. Perhaps just passing time to get along the distractions in your mind out through this. But baaam!!! The moment you open your mouth to sing, the crowd is all silent. When you are slightly gone with the singing, some are standing and singing along. And by the time you are done, the cheering feels like a deliverance service at an outdoor crusade. You don’t believe it do you? You are crying because you didn’t ever think a person like you would wow a crowd. Well, so you thought. 

Everything then changes for you. Why? You discover that there’s is something inside of you that could make you a whole lot happier. Something really powerful. Something only God can give. 

A lot of us today are walking around like zombies. We are not even happy. We seek to find ourselves. Our balance, our happiness. It’s overwhelming to be somewhere You do not wish to be. Sometimes we would like to atribute the sad life to our background but no. That’s only something we choose to hold on to. It’s an excuse and it is lame. Because you’re moving power. 

Sometimes, it’ll just take you to try something, and in the end you will discover how much you get to love it. It took my example a performances to discover she could not only wow a crowd by her singing, but that she could powerfully move herself from sadness to extreme joy. 

As you walk about, as you sit, try everything out. Your passion could be somewhere. You haven’t been put here to be mediocre as sometimes we choose to be. We have been chosen to shake the world with the power God has put within us. I find so much joy in writing and knowing that at the end of the day, I impart one or two. But I believe there’s so much more unused potential in me that I need to explore. 

Are you ready to give yourself that chance? Are you ready to show us that power you’ve got? Because yes, you do. Forget the events of the past. Focus on now and what you can do, because as sure as your legs are in motion, there’s is power moving from place to place that is within you. 

Thanks a lot for reading. Share this widely so everyone knows that they are powerful in every way.

THEIR HISTORY, YOUR STORY

A very good morning to you wonderful people. I trust you’re well. And that it is all good things. Someone must have been right when they said and told me too often “The sin that’s committed most by us humans, is judgement” true to the statement, it is. There’s no Single day that gets to pass without us making judgement. It’s either good or bad but at the end of the day, it is judgement. So what would we rather do? Be quiet? Well if it is for the best, surely then we need to try to. But some will ask, how about if I’m judging the situation positively? Well, okay… I don’t know. But it shouldn’t lead you to negative judgement. You know? 

This is the sad truth of this wonderful and happy life. Often we judge people by what we see. Who they are, we don’t know. But what they do, at that moment in time that our eyes are on them, we judge so harshly. That’s sight judgement. It gets even worse when we judge by what we hear. There’s no love at all in our words. Take for example, and I’m sorry to use us ladies as examples but the point needs to reach home. When we were younger and still in school maybe, we did make choices. Perhaps we said this “I will not date until I’m with a job”… “I will not go to clubs and pubs, those are not good places”…. “I’ll not be friends with those guys, they drink, they smoke, they are into drugs and etc… ” You see, the choices are good yes, but there’s the aspect of judgement. You categorize people who do what you chose not to as the worst kind. You can’t associate with them. Huh? I know. I have been there. 

You know the kind of question that comes with judgement? “What’s love got to do with it?”Yes. There’s no love at all when we are judging. We are rather justifying ourselves and actions as better and the rest as bad. On to my topic now. “Their history, your story” do you remember that lady that used to be your friend? She got into a relationship and was impregnated. The boyfriend left her in darkness. She is alone, even in that sterile room with doctors all round her. 

Do you remember that boy? Yes. The one who got into drugs while in first year? He couldn’t get through campus. Drugs have turned him insane. Now you are talking about how he would have made better choices.  Sweetheart, what do you know? Do you write their story? 

Here’s the worst part: 

You didn’t know for sure you would get into drugs someday. You didn’t know for sure you would be impregnated and now someone else is talking about the consequences of your choices or actions. Yes.. Where are you at now? Those whom you saw as the worst kind, had their share of pain. At the time, you would only talk. Now their wounds are healed and their brokenness is mended. Their dark past is long forgotten. Their dark past is your current story. 

What’s my point? Let’s give room for love. Let’s allow ourselves understand. For from understanding, we do not even have time to condemn, to crucify or to judge. Do you remember a time we spoke about wounded healers? That’s what we are called to be. Not to judge. That’s for God. You do not know where you will be, at a time when you don’t even expect. Love conquers everything.  

I love you all so much and thanks for reading.

ITS HAPPENING NOW

Hi good people? It is Monday, a wonderful day of the week. Well some if not most like to think of it as the worst, but this is some kind of pacesetter. My weekend has been quite mind boggling. Yes, I mean anxious and happy, and scared at the same time. Let’s say, there’s communication that has been going on in my head for a long time. My heart already made the decision, but my mind’s been taking its time. Difficult, huh? 

Well, what I need to do is a bit huge. I know it’ll turn a lot of things around (That’s the scary but) but I know it needs to be done. I’ve perhaps not believed in myself much to make it happen. So it didn’t land me on a comfort zone. It landed me in a state of a litu confusion. As a result, I have been hurt and made choices I haven’t been proud of later. You know? Maybe I looked at it this way. That I needed to start from 10, down to 0. (zero). It should be the other way round, 0 and up to 10. 

I want it! I want it! Yes I do. But I’m scared. I decided to have a conversation with my friend last evening. We thank God. I received much more than my heart and my mind had desired. There is one thing she mentioned. “When you’re scared of doing something, it means you’re about to do something really brave!” Well I deemed that true because the result could be lethal. But at the end of the day, life does need to be lived differently and not normally. 

Figuring things out. Sometimes we do not want to change because of the comfort of the present. A temporary comfort. We do not want to risk losing that little joy that may not last us much. But come to think of it, is it worth it? Wouldn’t I rather attack this whole thing step by step in boldness and have a joy that lasts me much longer? We all struggle with some things, because we do not want to change it. Because we are afraid we will be alone or people won’t agree with us. PEOPLE! You are not even in the list. PEOPLE matter to you more than you do. 

We’ve been put to challenge quite often even by the simplest questions and truly you’ll realize we have had little or no zest at all to keep self happy and satisfied. But for others? It’s 10 to 0. Lol. Let’s have some litu love for self. Let’s change priority. When we are not thinking of us, then we will be stuck at wrong places. Probably with wrong people and doing wrong things while there’s so much to explore. 

I know it is scary. But it’ll be well worth it sometime. Let’s do this. 

Thanks for reading and have a great Monday. From my β™₯ to yours with love. 😊

KEEP AT ITΒ 

Hey lovely peeps! Well, people? Looks like I’m trying to keep at consistency. Well, it’s kinda a bit not easy but the thing is to keep trying. 

So now, have you ever gotten to this point where you want to keep at something, but there’s some forces telling you NO. Well this is some kinda tricky zone. 

I love my job, But No. There’s so much pressure, I hate my job. I love my bestie, oh No. But  she hurt me, she did something to me I’ll never forget. She betrayed me. I loveto wake up early. Oh No, but the last time I woke up extremely early, I slept almost all day at work, I’ll keep at sleeping a litu more each day. 

It’s called the struggle of consistency. I have come to realize that consistency comes with a passion, no matter how difficult the first results are. No matter how many times we keep hitting the wrong notes. No matter how terrible and stupid we look after several attempts. 

Some of these really successful people in life. Do you think they just got there? No. There’s some path you will need to walk. A must. This is the path that will determine if you’re willing to take the risks, with passion in order to achieve at the end of the day. 

If you’re struggling to keep a relationship. Have you tried? Have you had a passion in trying to make it better? If you’re failing in class, do you have the passion to try? To even seek help from friends? Is there love in your heart for what you have, what you do and where you want to eventually be at? 

Love what you do and keep at it. Only stop if it’s honestly far from what your heart would love to pursue. 

Thanks for reading. From my β™₯ to yours. 😊

THE LITTLE THINGSΒ 

Hey wonderful people! It has been how long again? Forever? Yes I know. So I have decided to bring an awakening to a page that was this close to dead. And then someone just mentioned here with me “Thank God for friends. You know who they are in crisis” Today, I have witnessed that power of friendship. 

I had come from an errand and I find a litu tension at home. Before I got home, I decided to pass by a kiosk and bought 3 bananas. I was extremely hungry after an exercise that took a couple of my hours for the day. As I was walking, there was this man behind me whose paper bag was being blown by the wind. I turn a little scared at what that sound was and he is like “Msichana, kwani umeshtuka? Pole ni hii karatasi yangu.” and I answered him “eh, nilikuwa nashangaa ni sauti gani hii nyuma yangu.” I told him it was fine and gave him a banana. He was so happy. 

So now I’m walking towards the house and then a lady stops me. “Madam, huyu ako na njaa. Si umpe ndizi moja?” so I give him my second banana and he is so happy. I felt really good that I brought some joy. Now when I get home, I’m so excited I open the gate smiling, I’m almost calling people’s names from the gate to share my joy. But what do I find? A litu tension. 

I sit quietly and just watch. There’s tension yes but something is keeping me calm. I watch the running up and down and in a very short time, everything is calm. There is gratitude. There is joy and an acclamation of peace. Thanks giving in every call. I asked a few questions and it reminded me of my little act. 

Sometimes we assume these little things. Sometimes we help only those whom we know. Sometimes we may think our help isn’t enough for anybody. Nothing is ever too little. The Lord went ahead and even resolved a personal issue for me. Hehe. 😊

Let me share a litu fantasy of faith I have. I don’t know what Jesus is about to do for me, but there’s something He is doing. I’m just anxious and happy at the same time to see how He goes around this I do not know. I hope I’ll be back here sooner to share the good news. πŸ˜‚

This is what for many, little acts of kindness do. It doesn’t matter whom you help. It matters the impact you have and in return, God favors you. He does something you least expected. 

I had missed you my people. Talk again soon and thank you for reading. 

From my heart to yours. 😊😊
