UNHATEFUL!

​It went like this

It should be easy and quick.

The test I mean.

The test of the unhateful.

Didn’t want to do all of these but i just have to.

I thought I was doing all good to myself and to them.

Ever since I agreed to His love, I’ve devoted myself to reciprocating and showcasing that love to other people too.

Thought it would be fun and easy to do.

Until I realized what talking His yoke and learning of Him truly means.

I realised that all my good to them doesnt even count.

I has a mission to be loved, to be what I want.

To make them see me and like me for who I am.

But they didnt actually knew me for who I was.

I thought they saw me as a good different.

Well, that’s how I see myself.

Until it dawned on me that they did’nt even know

They didnt care to know.

If I was on their side they’ll like me.

If not…

It does’nt change what they feel about me.

Hate, yeah that’s the word hate.

What have I really done wrong?

I’ve practically become stupid!

Still, it doesnt change what they feel about me.

Hate, yeah thats the word hate.

It was in the air. I really did’nt feel it until an organises outburst of anger by them. I really felt intimidated and scared or them.

I really thought I liked them and showed it in every way. I mean I know I did mean to do a few mistakes but I thought theyll like me too despite my flaws. 

I mean I accept and over look every of theirs at least just to show love. The kind of love I’m meant to show as His child. But it did’nt work, all of it. Everything just did’nt work.

 Intimidated, scared…..I was humiliated beyond what I can imagine.

I still held on.

His love has shown me that despite who they are or what they do, love never changes. Mine shoud’nt too. Especially since I’m a representative of that love.

That is why if I want to reiterate their actions by responding the same way they did for me, it never works out. I just end up hurting myself.

This is beyond what the human mind can fathom.

 I don’t even understand why I am doing this.

They don’t either. But they know I have something they don’t.

Something is missing.

There’s a big difference.

Very big one.

And that difference is love in flesh and spirit.

Love in me. Love, the life that I live that makes me different from everyone else.

And that love is;

JESUS!

New Title. 

Hey guys!

Happy weekend to you all.

I’m sure most people are wondering why I deserted this blog for a long time. Well lets just say I let blogging down😥 and I let you all down too. And I keep apologising like I won’t do it again 😒 so much for trying to be consistent.

Lot of things have happened that has rocked the boat of my conviction or needless to say inspiration. But I find it difficult in my heart to let it go. So here I go! I’m here again!

I’m so sorry for all those I’ve let down. To those who have been trailing me for this, thank you so much for having faith in God in me..naa its not me you’ve had you faith on its only God!

For those who have lost interest, well I’ll say you can stick around a bit to get yourself convinced, and I’m sure you will!

 For those who’ll be sticking around thank you so much too! I promise not to EVER (note it’s in capitals) let you down by His grace! (now that’s binding.)

Its time to stand up and answer the call of the gospel😃!

My name is Deborah and welcome to a new era of a new title!

Welcome back😁!

THE VALUE OF CHRISTMAS: WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU AND ME

Two weeks ago during one of our Sunday school classes a question was thrown on the literal meaning of Christmas. A couple of people of which I was a part of answered that it’s a time and season set apart to celebrate the birth of our saviour,  Jesus Christ, cause yeah what else can it mean other than that? But later we were proved wrong. The real meaning of Christmas in its literal sense is Christ for the masses, that is Christ-mas.

Really?!

I began to wonder and ponder on that. Yeah Christmas is a fun season to celebrate Jesus, enjoy ourselves with our families, have fun, make good use of it as the most fun time of the year since the later part of the year follows after it, give out to people if need be, but most importantly thank God for a year well spent, for a bridge built to God, for a Saviour born and for the joy of the season. But, indepthly  there’s more to it; does the joy of the Christmas season last forever till another one or just for merry making and celebrations of decking the halls and thudding “Joy to the world!” just for the happiness attached for that day or days to the new year?

Does the stress, hustling and bustling ward off after so many resolutions made and merriment for the previous year?

My dear people;

Christmas is for the heart that doesn’t forget!

What exactly are we forgetting? 

That Christ is for the masses not just for the cellebrations!

Yes! Christmas doesn’t centre only on celebration. Well even though it somewhat does, it is by the way! With the challenge of the great commission, and the season of the coming of the Saviour we are celebrating, it is the time to rise up with the joy within to spread the news that Jesus is for all! How many people have you preached to this Christmas? Is there something God is impressing in your heart to do for Him? Are you not supposed to bless that family or that work of God? Note that Christ’s coming wasn’t just for the joy of his mother, father or even the host of heaven, it was to alert the world that the only way through which they can be saved has been made! The only bridge to God and eternal life has been built! The only way to heaven has come! We are celebrating not only our Saviour but our only way to live!

So if you don’t celebrate Christmas by rededicating, redeeming your life in Him, your celebration is not complete. If you don’t tell people around you about this birth of salvation, preaching and sharing the gospel, then your celebration is not complete! With Jesus’ coming, no matter what we do or where we are, we just have to keep telling. Christmas or not, it doest change the fact that the devil still looms around propagating darkness and evil into the heart of men but you know what, now is the best time to truncate that! 

As you celebrate, don’t forget to duplicate the salvation message for it is very delicate!

Don’t forget Christmas is the time to spread the word! Spread it now!

Please like, comment and share if you’ve been blessed!

God bless you!

WHEN YOU REALISE YOU’VE LOST EVERYTHING, WHAT ABOUT HIM?

As I sit to reminiscence on my life before, it’s so hard to view how it has been so far. Well, not pretty hard I geussThe fame, lights,  respect, grace,  Aura and feeling of pride to be a student which comes with a responsibility to be the best and bring out the best which I can offer. No matter what,  the struggle to be  the best continues… 

Seconds minutes, hours, days, weeks and months draw closer and I realize and began to think.. What have I done so far to improve ME? 

Then I realised that I’m not even close to success if I’m always on the ME lane, but will be if I’m on the YOU lane. Then I begin to worry again as most times, I worry too much about the YOU, a little less on the ME and abandon  completely!

But I realised that if I can make HIM my everything, I wouldn’t have to worry less about the ME or YOU because, I won’t have to worry at all!

This year I’ve learnt so much to begin to see that God is not an option; he is not on our plan B neither is he on C; he is always our first. When I thought I had lost my ability to writ more I focused on the depressed ME and the dissapointed YOU, but hey here I am! He’s got plans, greater than ours, so let’s all sit back and relax on his word standing on his promises as our HIM becomes our everything!

Dont wait until you realise you’ve lost everything then you’ll need HIM! Hold HIM! Trust HIM! Wait on HIM and HIM alone will be your everything! So enjoy this season all for HIM!😁

                    God bless! #DebbyPeace😇

APLOGIES… HUMBLE APOLOGIES 😢😢😢

I wish I knew the way to go

And I’m so sorry for the times I’ve deserted everyone

I wish I know how to repay you back

😢😢😢

 I am so sorry for being so negligible of this blog!  Words keep coming up, devil keeps striving, but you know when you’re on the Lords side, especially when you let him have his way, all you have to do is to keep still and let him do the winning; I have been guilty of that and he has been dealing with me by his mercies.  In all,  I am deeply sorry.  But I promise to take a step.  Exams are coming up and rapt preparation is involved. I’ll leave you with this piece continuation of the last one and another one before I stay off for another 3 weeks of exam focus.  I promise to resume fully after then.  I’m cooking up something you won’t want to miss and I’m so exited that I can’t wait to let it out. Thanks so much for your love! The Lord reward and bless you greatly! I love you all! 

ALL OF ME.  ALL OF ME.  ALL OF ME? 

I’ve been thinking too much these days.  Recession things, end-time things,  God’s plan things, school things, future stuff and all.  But something came to my mind that I really want to share.  

I heard this song — I think it’s really popular.  ‘ All of me ‘ by John Legend. Some part of the lyrics actually caught my attention. Here it is. 

“ Give your all to me 

I give my all to you 

You’re my end and my beginning 

Even when I loose I’m winning 

I give you all — all of me

And you give me a —ll of you ”

Okay there it is.  Please don’t  start to wonder what I’m doing,  I want to bring something out of it.  Now ‘ all of ME ‘ is like this strong promise a guy makes to his girl to always give his all — money,  time, resources and ‘ life ‘ to her because of the ‘ love ‘ he professes to have for her. We see this everyday;  friends promises, family promises, spouse promises, being forever together… And all of that.  

But here my thinking lies. 

How many of us are really willing to give our all to GOD?  How willing are we to promise to follow Him all our days with all of our lives and to follow and be obedient to his will?  How much of God’s love so you have in you? Oh! The real question  is this;  do we actually Love God enough to give our ‘ all ‘ to him? 

A guy can promise his heart and life out for his lady, accepting her with her ups and downs.  He’ll try to love, care and cherish her even with arguments,  they’ll  try not to break each others promises.  But sadly,  we are human,  we break things — especially promises.

WHEN WILL I EVER FIT IN?! 


http://media.mercola.com/imageserver/public/2011/February/depressed-teenager-2.7.jpg.

IN THE SHADOWS: WHEN WILL I EVER FIT IN?

In life we believe  there are two sects of people. But,  in the life of a typical teenager, you can only be popular  and unpopular.  How feasible is this?  I’ll  explain  this. 

James a normal high school teenager goes on pretty well.  Except  for the fact that Billy and his clique teases  him with every little thing ranging from his style, dress sense,  intellect,  beliefs and every other thing.  They taunt him everyday trying to make him feel miserable  just because he doesn’t fit into their standard. Low self-esteem, inferiority complex  seems to be his lot.   They do this to do many other  guys who they believe  are below their standard; James is of no exception. In frustration, James tries to confront  them on their bad attitude and their so called ‘better than everybody else’behavior whereby receiving more insults both in words and in beatings, not only from Billy and his clique but also from the top  popular guys on Billy’s side making James left in the darkness of loneliness in the shadows of unpopularity. Now,  he doesn’t seem to fit in anywhere and his life has become  miserable thanks to the popular rank, he now contemplates  suicide. 

Do you get the picture now?  What is your advice to  James? Many young ones have become popular  one way or the other in the midst of their peers. They get popular because of a special and unique thing about them. They maybe famous, rich,  talented, beautiful or handsome, brilliant, energetic,  sporty enough to become popular. 

The well,  so to say ‘unpopular’ ones are usually those who are on the common side and normal ones. They don’t really gain much attention or attraction and popularity as some people do.  Most of them are also very special  and unique  in their own way but may not usually express based on differences and maybe,  personal reasons.  Many of these popular  ones tend to tease, control and even bully the unpopular  ones;  other times,  the unpopular ones try to conform and copy the popular ones just to get on their good sides.  So they try to adjust to what they are not used to, try to pretend and hide who they really are and tend to live a fake life to safe them of embarrassments, teasing, fear, depression and inferiority complex.  But,  even though some popular ones do this, there are  some who take it up as a challenge  to become better and be the best they want to be in the sense that being popular  doesn’t make them different a human that they are.  

Maybe you’ve noticed where you belong to.  Yeah, as youth and teens, we see people  like James everyday being tortured sarcastically. We laugh it off for the fun of it,  but deep inside heart of Hearts  there is a big place of depression and downcast.  For the unpopular ones,  actually you are popular. If you know God has your father and he knows you,  then what makes you different from being popular? It’s just like being the friend of the president! Sure you’ll be willing to  flaunt it and be proud of it.  That’s how you are to!  You are a child of the most high! Famous in not only his sight but in all sights!  It takes knowing where God has placed you and how to fit into it.  The nitty gritty of this issue is; many of the so called popular ones are not in the place God has prepared  them to be! Although  there are actually  some getting the fame the right way,  they’ve been blinded by ego and pride because of what they think they posses.  Not all of them are popular or famous in God-kinda-way,  and even though they may enjoy it for a while, it won’t take long before they realise they’ve been on the wrong path since.  They are just popular out of self-will and desire for fame which have pushed them out of God’s plan! We must think dearly of this;  God  has great things in store for you.  Low self-esteem,  inferiority complex shouldn’t get in your way!  You are super-unique and super-special in your own way! You just have to love the God in yourself and let him bring out the best in you!  

For the good popular ones,  God made you special and unique  to make impact on other people and to change your generation  for better.  If you think degrading  another person’s self esteem is how you derive your joy or fun,  you’re on the wrong road.  Tomorrow in your dying bed, you might need the help of someone who you’ve been making fun of a lot and loose that help never to find another because of your past bad acts.  Your footprints of the deeds you’ve done, the lives you’ve impacted is very crucial.  God didn’t give you that which makes you special just for you to be famous, he gave it to you so that you will use it for him and to change lives.

Think of yourself the way God sees you. You have been created wonderfully , allow God to make a difference  in your life.  It’s not about the talent,  not about the strength  not about what you can do.  It’s about how you follow and allow God help you bring out the best in you. Popularity doesn’t measure success, impactation and the lives you’ve changed for the better for the glory of the Lord does. 

You are not to be in the darkness of shadows,  but as a light that shines bright!
