You Won’t Die Like This

Life is sweet but the truth is bitter. Life is a bed of roses, but it seems we have fast forgotten that roses have thorns and sometimes what’s beautiful can make us bleed. 

Good things happen to bad people and bad things happen to good people, but no matter how much you feel broken and battered by life, don’t lose faith.

When I became homeless last year, I got to a juncture where all hope was lost, and I told God to take my life if He doesn’t want me on earth anymore. But God, came through and now I can look back and thank God for those tough times.

Please don’t kill yourself, yes I am talking to you, my dear friend, don’t quit! I may not know your name or the flames you are going through, but whether it’s shame or blame – for the things you did or the ones you didn’t do, trust me, there is hope for you.

Your journey may be tougher and your road rougher than you can explain but you are stronger than your pains.

I know this may sound like a cliche but I’ve been there before – the valley of death where strong men feel lifeless, helpless & hopeless. The dungeon where fear and frustration feel closer than a friend. However, that prison is not a place of residence.

God formed you in His image for a time like this, you are not a slave to sorrow, sadness and satanic oppression. You are not created to drown in the dungeon of depression. Stop listening to the lying voices in your head.

You are not your past mistakes or present errors, you are more than conquerors. A champion made to turn challenges to channels of blessings.

Don’t let the deception and distractions of the devil steal your joy forever. God is willing to flood your heart once more with the river of joy.
I know it’s sometimes hard to let go and let God but find strength from within to go on your knees and beg God.

He is the help of the helpless and hope of the hopeless, He can fix your broken spirit and fill your soul with joy and bliss again. From those voices of shame and reproach, God can set you free. You have better and brighter days ahead of your, I pray you to begin to see.

I know there is no quick route to finding bliss but you can’t continue to live like this, and my friend, you are not going to die like this. Wipe away your tears and trade your tears for joy in the pool of prayers and positivity.

The devil wants you to perish in the prison of disgrace but God wants to plant you in the garden of grace.

Please don’t do it, don’t take your life, there is an end to this storm and strife. Death is not a termination but a transition, if you kill yourself I bet you will regret it because what awaits on the other side of suicide is worse than the pains and pressures of life.

Don’t believe the lie that it’s better to die.

If you think you are alone in the fight, you are wrong. Many people including me have gone through this valley and came out strong. Reach out to God and godly people around you, go on your knees and beg God to see you through.

I know it’s sometimes hard to pray because you don’t know what to say but God can hear your heart and the tales of your tears. Talk to Him every way you can, He can hear your silent scream.

God is mighty to save, It’s time to shift your focus and look unto Jesus if you don’t know him yet, it’s time to accept him. He died shamefully and rose again triumphantly so you won’t have to die in shame.

His love is strong enough to lift you out of hopelessness. His light is bright enough to lead you out of the darkness and His life. Cast your care upon Him for He cares for you.

Protesting For Posterity

Protest is not the answer, protest is one of the options and you know what? Justice is the answer! No one wants to see or smell blood but some people may have to pay the ultimate price in the quest for freedom and justice.

Revolution and restoration can only be achieved by a generation that values the principles of integration, aggregation and penetration over competition and recognition. Unity is a weapon of mass restoration.

Freedom is not free. It is either someone has paid for it, someone is paying for it or someone will pay for it. The price of freedom is not always high if people pool resources together. Every cent matters.

Peaceful protest attracts aggression from oppressors. If you can’t join them, beat them. Innovation provides a cooler dimension of aggression. Wisdom trumps strength.

Violence is way better than silence. Silence is the garden where bitterness is buried. It’s only a matter of time, bitterness gets fertelized by frustration, becomes a tree with ripe rebellion that haunts the oppressors. Refuse to be silent forever.

Dead men tell no tales but their blood screams out loud for justice peppered with vengeance. Death has never been the end of life, it’s a transition.

No one will leave this world alive. You have many lives to live, make your death count. There is life after death and there is death after life. Live for something significant if your want your death to be a remarkable transition.

Everyone kills to survive. Every other day, mosquitoes get murdered in cold blood, vegetarians kill green plants, scientists kill viruses. Death has always been a vital part of survival. When good men refuse to kill evil, it becomes a monster and haunts them.

Your life is too small to be the reason God created you and gave you unique gifts. Your purpose is beyond possession and position. God had posterity in mind when He gave you access to prosperity.

You will not only be remembered for what you have done. You will be rewarded for what you have done. Greed and corruption are manifestations of ignorance with a touch of arrogance.

Procrastination is not a thief of time it’s the assasin of great opportunities. Change happens when opportunities are used at the right time. Intimidators are inspired by cowardice. If the oppressor has taken your voice and your vision from you, recovery is by revolt, freedom is by force.

If you don’t want to be a prey, don’t just pray to God, protest against grave oppression. Your voice is your weapon, but it’s not your only weapon. Your tongue is not the only part of your body. Use every weapon at your disposal to secure your disposal. Protest for peace, progress, prosperity and posterity.
