WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS!!!!

I just had to start with that. I’ve been extremely overjoyed since Saturday and that’s why. 😀

Now to why we are here………..

Self-Love

Love yourself the way you want to be loved (the way you want someone else to love you).

Love your neighbour as you love yourself (this is the greatest commandment).

An insight into the later tells us that you can only love others (your neighbour) when you love yourself. How much love you can show to your neighbour (everyone around you) is a function of how much you love yourself. You cannot give what you do not have.

With regards to the former, you cannot truly understand what it means to be loved when you do not love yourself. I’ll explain; when you do not love yourself, you cannot see what others love in you. When you do not have love for yourself, you do not know what it is for someone to give/show you love. It’s like giving a million dollars to someone who has lived all their life in a forest and has no idea what a dollar bill looks like. Now, imagine a painting you’ve studied and come to love; you’ve studied, understood and fallen in love with every brush stroke and even flaws. Imagine someone else falling in love with that same painting. You more than anyone else will be able to understand. That is exactly what it’s like to love yourself before someone else loves you.

Self-Love-Quotes-1

So, basically before you can love others, or “feel loved” you have to first love yourself. And no, loving yourself doesn’t make you selfish/self-centred. It only means you are investing in yourself, so you can have even more to invest in others and appreciate when others invest in you. Self-love is basically where love begins; after your love for GOD.

How do you go about loving yourself?

The basic step is to forgive yourself of past mistakes, let go of any pain, regret, past failures, basically anything that makes you feel undeserving or worthless. And truth is; only GOD can take all that away. Also you need to understand who you are to GOD, to understand that HE has kept you here for a reason hence you are far from worthless.

Learning to love yourself is a process that takes time, but with GOD, it takes minutes.

UNTIL NEXT TIME….. In the words of Whitney Houston: Learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all (after loving GOD)….. XOXO

LET GO

LET GO AND LET GOD…..

Hello Beautiful People!!!! TGIF!!!! (lemme not shout too much I have to be in school tomorrow 😦 ). Anyway, I trust you all had a great week, and even if you didn’t don’t worry it’s over now and next week will be much better. Today we have a post from someone we will definitely be seeing a lot of on here from now on (I’m praying and fasting she keeps to her promise), I have been begging her to come on the blog for only God knows how long. During the week she calls me to say she will send in a post and I was really glad.

Here’s what Osas Uwoghiren aka The genius has for us 😀 ……

As humans, we are territorial by default. Based on past experiences, we tend to put boundaries around stuff we own. These boundaries might be physical like the passwords on our devices, window bars, fences in our homes. They might also be non-physical like the walls we put up against our hearts due to past experiences.

Invariably, we all have BARRIERS in one area of our life or the other. I am of the opinion that these barriers are important to ward off potential danger or hurt as I’ve also had them.   But come to think of it, have we asked ourselves this simple truth… With these bars up, how can we tell when the good things or Mr. Right come our way??

For some, as a result of these bars, they’ve allowed good things pass them by. Majority of us are so caged in that we can’t even tell how the warmth of the sun on our skin feels like. We can’t recognise happiness any more.

LET GO

LET GO AND LET GOD…..

However, what if there’s a way to checkmate the right from the wrong.. The angel from the devil. Well, today’s your lucky day as I present you the one that knows it all. He’s able to see the thoughts and intents of men. He knows the END way before the BEGINNING.. “Oooh, I’ve heard all these before..” you might say. But, I ask you, have you made a decision to let your bars down for him?? to let him come in and take over.. He’s the only one that can help you spot the difference between what’s right for you and what should be thrown in the trash.

ENOUGH of the heartaches, disappointments, shame and disgrace, it’s time to let the bars down and let the all-knowing God take full control of the wheel of your life. I assure you’ll land in paradise sooner than you expect.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Action Point:

Accept Jesus as the anchor and saviour of your life via this simple prayer:

Dear Lord, I accept you into my life today because your word says “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”. Thank you for accepting me into your kingdom. Thank God I’m saved.

We hope to hear from you again soon Osas 😀 .

My thoughts: Barriers are important; very important. In Biochemistry, Biology etc we are taught that cells have membranes that act as barriers to their external environment, but these cells also need some important substances from their external environment. Which is why these membranes are also selectively permeable (they allow certain selected substances through them); there are various channels on the membrane through which certain elements needed by the cells pass through (these channels are also regulated by certain factors). Just as in the cell, when we put up barriers in aspects of our lives, we need certain channels to filter things we might need to let in and things we don’t. I believe that channel in our lives is GOD and the factor that regulates that channel is HIS WORD.

Andddd it was my baby brother’s birthday on Wednesday, i struggled to do a post that day to no avail. Still!!!!
