Have you achieved your best in life? Is your life free of hardships, setbacks and stubborn limitations and failure in your life? If yes, no need to read further. Go to sleep and rest.
First of all, having problems is not a problem…
Problems and Obstacles are sign of life. You cannot avoid them while alive. What we can do is that we can change our perspective to deal with them. As Theodore Rubin said, “The problem is not that there are problems. The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem.”
I have experienced dozens of them ranging from stubborn poverty, rejection, addiction, health issues among others and overcame them with time. I had to first win the battle in my mind by setting my mindset right. From the streets I became a professional in my field. I had to conquer the challenges. The greatest man on earth is one that is able to conquer himself(his fears, weakness, setbacks, hardships and self-worth).
I want to challenge you today to get out of your comfort zone. You have so much incredible potential on the inside. God has put gifts and talents in you that you probably don’t know anything about.
The Lord is behind the scenes orchestrating and crafting the chapters of your story. God is not ignoring you, no, no, no, He is busy making a story out of your life.
Even with these hardships around you and in your life, there is a handful of divine providence behind the scene being put into your cup and when it starts running over it will be handed on your laps and will be yours for celebration. You may not figure out why it is taking so long but even the bible encourages us to wait patiently. To endure, persevere and WAIT because it will be instrumental in building your faith and from it a big testimony will be made and will be impacting and encouraging many.
Even when things are dark, the light of God presence can still be present if we open our eyes
I have failed a dozens of times but I keep on rising and forging forward. Don’t let failure discourage and disappoint you.
3 Things that help you keep going after failure:
1.If things go wrong, don’t miss the lesson: When something (or everything) is going wrong in your way, don’t miss the lesson. Because we all do mistakes but important is to stop making the same mistake again and again. Write down the things you will take care when tried next time.
2.Check where you slip, not where you fall: Whenever we start at something, a proper planning is needed. Sometimes we are so motivated that we take decisions based on our emotions. At that point we were not able to see what if things will not work as desired. So before starting something big or investing (relationship, money as well as time) in something, make step by step plans. You should be aware of all the obstacles that may come. And in that case you should have alternative approaches to keep going.
3.Don’t take failure personally: You are not your dream; your dream is just a part of your life. So whenever you fail, don’t take it emotionally for long time and look for the alternatives.
There is a God in heaven who cares for us. He sees even when we slip, trip and fall. Even though His Holy Spirit is always there talking to us in still voice telling us what to do, His grace and mercies is always sufficient even when we make the wrong moves. He heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds.
Keep going my friend and don’t worry about your speed. You are making progress, even if it doesn’t feel like it. Forward is forward, no matter how slow. If you fail and fall, rise up and keep going. What you want exists, don’t quit until you get there.
The best feeling in the world is watching things finally fall into place after watching them fall apart for so long.
If you had a bad day and a crazy week, you gotta build on courage and believe that tomorrow is gonna be a better day. Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow.”
Maybe the enemy has been working hard to destroy, dissolve and disunify your relationship, business, family, investments etc I know a God who can snatch you back from the gnashing teeth of the enemy. I am a living visible illustration of what God can do to those who are weak and giving up. God got your back! He knows, sees and understands what we go through. He is more than able to change and make things better.
Set your mindset right, get motivated, arise and shine. Many of us have a large gap between the thinking and actions. Thinking alone never helps. There are uncounted numbers of people who think a lot. Many people dream and think big. However, rather than taking the next step, they wait for miracles. They wait for more motivation to come. They wait for the opportunities.
If motivation does not come to it, you go for it. If an opportunity does not come, create it. You never realize your true power. All of the great people of their time were like us. Most of them were not born talented. They discovered their motivation. They developed their talent. They motivated themselves and achieved their dreams. That is it. See any successful people. They do not think so much. They think, plan and start working on it.
I want to encourage someone today to think forward regardless of the failure and setbacks. Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it. You must make a move regardless.
Be a POSSICAN(It is possible and can be done ) person. Have a positive mindset and Praise God in the process regardless of what you see or feel. ComPLAIN and you will remain plain, Praise God and you will receive a RAISE.
May any setback that is not ordained by God in your life for His purpose be scattered, demolished and excavated in Jesus name. I declare you gonna sing your sweet song and tell your amazing story of how you rose from that hardship and setback to a great comeback and handful of divine providence, prosperity and success.
IF GOD BE FOR YOU, WHO CAN BE AGAINST YOU????
