BE INSPIRED



Happy New week! If it's not starting happy, declare happiness and joy for yourself, yes, you have that power.

There lived a man who had financial difficulties. Business wasn't going well, despite how hard he tried. Then came a Sunday, he went to church as usual to worship. During the exhortation, the pastor shared the following scripture; Ecclesiastics 11: 1 Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days.



The man's business was bread baking. Somehow, he understood this literally. Lol, stupid right? Anyways, he took all his already freshly baked bread still wrapped in the nylon and went out to the ocean and threw them all out there. He thought that maybe it'll come back to him with better luck. Off he went.

Now there was a ship on the high sea. They had been voyaging and encountered problems. The journey home then had many more days until return. They had run out of food and thought for sure that they would die before getting home. They all made peace with thier maker. All of a sudden, bread floated to them; 1, 5, 20 and much more. They checked and it was good and fresh. They packed it all and it sustained them till they got home.

In the ship was a wealthy man. He had also made peace with His maker. He had thought he would die for sure. All his wealth couldn't help him. When they arrived home, he asked for who had the bread that saved thier lifes. Then he met the man and asked him what his bread was doing on the sea. The man narrated the instructions and bible passage read by His pastor on Sunday as a solution to His financial difficulties. So he only obeyed. The wealthy man ofcourse helped him with money, twice the amount he needed and he got back on his feet.

Moral of the story: God's got you.
It may not happen the way you expect but it will happen. See Isaiah 55:8-9
It may not seem like it but God's got you. God said in Isaiah 41: 10 -13, fear not for I will Help you.
Don't allow the devil to use the facts of the circumstances to distort the truth. God's word is the truth and it never lies.
Remain connected.

Have a fruitful week. Thoughts? Please share

Love

WALK OF SHAME...WHAT WOULD HAVE BEEN

Her leg ached.
Her waist ached.
Her neck ached.
Dinma was all shades of uncomfortable and didn't know which part of herself to rely on. She turned her neck in quick rotations in an attempt to reduce the ache but it did her no good. She cursed within. This was supposed to be a fun and happy day, not one filled with aches from all parts of her body. The fact that She had been an usher did no good for her. Two hours is a long time to have been standing. She sighed resignedly. The girl beside her turned and smiled at her sympathetically, she managed a weak smile in return. The Security officials were still perambulating, disappearing and reappearing, she dared not sit. If she wasn't spotted from the podium, the officials would certainly see her. Only one person had been excused to sit because of illness and it had been announced to avoid display of smart stupidity.
She picked the ceremony booklet from her seat for the umpteenth time to check progress. There was still three pages …

DEALING WITH HURT IN RELATIONSHIPS

If you are in a relationship; be it the one you were born into or the one you created, pain is inevitable. Simple reason being that we are humans, mortals, and it is in human nature to cause pain, to make mistakes. Even when it feels like the right thing, like a situation where you lie to protect someone you love, they can still find it hurtful because of differing views. Even if a person dedicates thier life to being and doing good, because of ''differing views'', something they do would come off as hurtful to someone in thier life.
Hurt and pain is inevitable. That's the simple truth. We only just learn how to deal with such times when it comes because it will.
