DAY 67 OF 365: WALKING THROUGH THE WORD DEVOTIONAL

every time you carried out any form of spiritual growth exercise, just know you were connecting with the Holy Ghost to build up a reserve for the day of confrontations

Title: THE PRINCIPLE OF EXTRA-LIFE (2)

But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,

DAY 51 OF 365: WALKING THROUGH THE WORD DEVOTIONAL

We serve, sow, invest and it just seems like “…we’ve caught nothing…”. When we look at ourselves or try to match our labour statistics with that of our expectations, it seems like we have nothing to show for it. Do you understand what I’m talking about right now? At such a time, it’s easy to want to stop trying and just throw in the towel, you know, call it quits.

Title: POSITIONED TO CONNECT -2

And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret, And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship. Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.

DAY 20 OF 365: WALKING THROUGH THE WORD DEVOTIONAL

You might use honey as a substitute for sugar. You can use sugarcane(juice) to meet the need when sugar itself is wanting. But, there is nothing (as far as I know) that can be used to sweeten or “salt” salt. Thus, a saltless salt is only good to be thrown into the fire and/or disposed of. The Bible didn’t say we are sugar. It says we are salt. God doesn’t mix His words…

Title: THE-PILLAR-OF-SALT CHRISTIAN

And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed. But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt

Investing in yourself this year may be your best shot at succeeding in the years to come

Galatians 6:8 (Authorized King James Version)
“For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.”

Just a brief thought that swam through my mind earlier. I’m yet to build something elaborate out of it.

THE DREAMER WITHIN (continued)

“See, I’m a living reality because of you. I’m here to pull down those walls with you. Do you know how hard it’s been for me? I mean, I love you so dearly, and to watch your life get harder and harder, and to watch you lose the ability to see or hope again, do you know how hard it has been for me?

I mean, to watch you turn into the type who works like the elephant anr survives like the ant…working harder and harder the more. Seeing you struggle through the storms, unable to hear my voice. Watching you choke under the circumstances and I can’t help you. Not because I can’t help, but because….you just won’t let me. You never thought I could do it. But, I could have helped, or…I would’ve, if only you’d let me.

I never stopped talking, or caring, or loving.
This has been the hardest part: watching you lose sight of me, the pinnacle of your destination and motivation disappearing into the distance.

Why? Because you thought you have arrived at a point where “We” weren’t a possibility no more. A point where you’ll eat everything and catch all the “fun” now, and let the future, your destiny I mean, sort itself out.

Those around weren’t there to love you like they should have. No one cared enough to give the gentle nudge in the right direction. I tried hard to come around, but…you kept pushing me away. You became more and more detached from love, from yourself, and from my reminders and promptings. And instead of letting the flames we both kindled to stay alive, you let it die by giving in to a life of despair. A life without hope, without divine purpose, without love, trust,…without me.

She sighs
Continues

“The passion we both shared was a motivation to others. Everyone was proud and I was grateful for being attached to you.

Now, here I am, locked up at the center of your soul, covered in the dusty memories of a beautiful past. And all I hear from you are complaints upon complaints, and how you couldn’t do, how you couldn’t be , and how you couldn’t have. How nobody is there for you, and how somebody did this or that to you…

You were meant to be a high achiever, a success together. You have greatness, gifts and talents, you’re not touching or even thinking about yet.

The problems you claim are too big and impossible to conquer… They are all beneath your personality.

Your answers, your fire, your passion, your power, they are all within you. I’m willing to help you if only you’ll listen and give in to the force stirring within your Spirit… YOUR DREAMER WITHIN.
