You got this!..keep moving and help will come, stop waiting and take charge, help is on the way 🙂

There’s this something about the journey…

I have seen the result of hard work, and I have also studied that in every success story, there is always one thing that doesn’t rhyme; one thing that cause and effect cannot explain as it relates to effort put in, or determination, or any of those things they say bring success.

You may want to call it time and chance but I call it the Favour Factor. Something that God dashes you, it just happens in the journey and either makes you wonder why you’ve been working so hard or it makes your effort so worth the try.

It’s the opportunity, the happenstance, the somebody you meet, the somebody who believes, or the event that takes place just in time, or a gift, a door, an element of favour.

Nobody can fight this in your life. Envy, they might, because it’s usually not fair, but to a virtuous onlooker, your story says that there is still hope for them.

Never ever ever envy the ‘luck’ in a person’s life, there is more than enough undeserved favour from God to go around. Some of us work hard, and for some of us, it drops on our laps, cos as we all know, what works for another may not work for you.

But the truth remains, something will happen, or somebody, that will make that dream eventually come to pass.

Know your call, know your God, forget what people say, keep doing the good work and expect your favour factor, because it must happen. The waiting periods and the journeys may differ but it must happen, beyond your dreams. You’re allowed to keep your hopes up.

WANNA LEARN A NEW SKILL THAT WILL EXCITE HIM?

I’m desperate about my dreams…maybe you oughta be too.

My desire for excellence is birthed out of my desire to give God glory…keep telling myself, “God cannot be put to shame through me” PGF, we’re not here to look at faces.

I can’t say “I will do anything to achieve them…” It’s His work, He’s runs this… But there are a few new things I have done and a few more that I can’t promise you that I won’t do… Cos I don’t want no shouldawouldacouldas, if I fail, the things I will regret the most would be the things I didn’t do, when I could and they would have cost me nothing, or little…no holding back…my dream is my love, and like I do love, I’ll do this, throwing in everything I got, no holding back…a little pride gone but on payday, we’ll remember…we’ll remember…it’s all coming back to me, better…

    2nd Cor 4:17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.

She’s crazy, she’s desperate, it’s alright if God is on my side, Power to get ‘wealth’ huh? What’s all this energy for if I’m going to waste it?… I know what I heard…tell me about Noah’s Ark, Gen 6:15-22

    Trusting time and chance but living faith without worksIf I touch, If I touch…she was desperate…she pressed… Trusting grace, not of works, because all things are working for me, my job is to believe, so bless the WORKS of my hands

All that fragrance on Jesus feet, what was she trying to achieve? Did you just break the ceiling to let in a paralysed man? So just to get more wine, He told you His time hadn’t come yet you gave his disciples the reporting line…hmm…matrix organisation structure… The other lady who went Luke 18-ing on the judge for justice, he didn’t care, he didn’t fear God…but she got it! Moses was so die-hard, plague upon plague till His people were released…who turns back on the first NO these days?

    Dreams don’t die, people lose hope, scoring didn’t become harder, we learnt the rules and stopped thinking outside the box. Remember when you were younger and you thought that all things are possible? That’s how God wants us to keep thinking.

Child-like faith. But now we’re scared of what people will say. If you’re always on the lookout for the opinions of others, they will control you, confuse and mess you up. Many times they don’t even know what they want from you, their choices are controversial, their needs insatiable, you didn’t come to earth but for God’s glory, His purpose for you and His pleasure…..told you already, PGF, you understand the call better, it was you God spoke to, keep moving…Hope maketh not ashamed, you’ll get there…

Abraham didn’t know where he was going but he moved his family out, Joseph only had a dream but he moved his pregnant wife to Egypt, what was David thinking pouncing on a lion to save one tiny lamb? Did Jesus have to be so obsessed and consumed by His mission? To die? For love? For his Goals?

Are you still sitting down? As long as you’re not hurting anyone or breaking God’s heart, make that move. I know we’re meant to soar but there’s something called Pressing toward the mark…determination. Do you have actions behind your faith?

I’m not asking you to birth an Ishmael, I’m saying borrow barrels even though you have just a jar of oil…that’s just crazy…but it tickles God…faith excites God…

We’re created for more, see big, see more, don’t limit God by lowering your expectations…stay humble in your journey but think Greater Works…Believe!

    Heb 3:19 So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief.

Without faith, it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God!!!

We wait, we cast our bread, we watch, we pray, we believe…

Sometimes He says stand still, sometimes He says move… Follow your call and encourage others to do same; more love, less judgement…When you hear a voice saying “This is the way, walk in it”…just walk…that’s the only voice you need for that season, for every season 😀

*Noah’s energy…Noah’s Ark…They laughed but He followed the call, I know what I heard…
