I don’t chase love, since the day I chose life, love has been chasing me down. He lights up shadows, kicks down barricades, tears down contentions, walks on stormy seas, and climb up ageless hills coming after me. In Love, I live. In Love, I move, and have my being. Why should I chase the Love that lives in me.
What’s your story? Can you share in just one sentence? Here is mine: “I was broken and buried by life, yet I turned the grave into a golden garden.” Share yours in the comment section. Feel free to make it simple 😁🤗🤗❤❤
Behind every grand glory, I see a million simple stories… A tale of trials and tears gathered through the years. So, before you covet the rainbow, be sure you can snug the storm.
Note that this mobile monument was not built with stones and cement. This skyscraper of success was built with bricks of blunders; every masterpiece you see in this castle was made with messy pieces.
I went through hell and high waters before I got to this garden that glitters. I stand tall among stars because I refuse to squat with my scars. I didn’t become a champion by chance, I chose to get cheered on by challenges.
This sweet smile on my face is nothing but a signature of strength and hope. I sometimes weep secretly seeking the courage to cope. So, before you covet this glory, be willing to live this story.
Hello friends, it’s been a while. I trust you all are doing great. I’ve been in the valley of decision and transition for a while. I’m believing God for more opportunities to share great contents here soonest.
I was inspired to share some lessons I have learnt in the valley of decisions earlier today. I am sure we all have some hard-learned lessons and hard-earned blessings in our darkest hours.
I have come to realise that most times, the people with the sweetest smiles and biggest blessings in public are those who have shed a million tears and made hard choices secretly.
Before we covet people’s fruit we must seek to know the kind of seed, seasons and struggles that produced their harvest. Great harvests don’t just happen. Some folks go through hell and high water before occupying their place in grace.
Some blessings are not just answered prayers or products of ‘grace’ (luck), they are rewards of strenuous sacrifices and hard choices.
God is a God of principles, you can’t manipulate Him with prayers. Some things are activated with strict obedience, diligence and resilience.
This does not mean that prayer is not necessary, in fact, prayer supplies the strength l, wisdom and grace required to sustain the blessings of God.
However, we must embrace the wisdom to combine prayer, faith and action in the right proportion. In knowing this, be encouraged and empowered to excel. I would like to share one of my anchor-scriptures with you.
In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation. 1 Peter 5:10
Shalom. Adeleke Adeite.
Thank you for reading. What have you all been up to lately?
With all the pains and devastating experiences going on in the world, it is now easier to drift into discouragement. A lot of folks feel lost and lonely. Secret tears and valid fears have overwhelmed many souls. Everyone needs a miracle. Our world needs healing, hope and help.
While you are praying for a miracle don’t forget that you are one too. You are a blessing to our world. Don’t magnify your past and present mistakes. Don’t amplify the voice of your pains. You are a perfect portrait of God. You are pregnant with possibilities. How I wish we all can happen for good to ourselves.
Life is not all about highs and lows, there is a point in between the darkest night and the brightest day where you have to create radiant realities. You have all it takes to shift atmospheres. Don’t feel worthless or hopeless. Your struggles are a sign that there is something significant about your life.
Shine your light in the tunnel, don’t wait till you get to the end. Use the key of gratitude to unlock the limitless possibilities within you. Focus on the blessings around you, the beauty within you and the brighter days ahead of you. Your darkest valley is not a place of residence but a point of reference. Keep being the hero of your story.
Ask God for grace to grow stronger while you go through the flood and flames of life. Cry for help if you have to. Retreat if you need to. Seek a professional assistant if you have to. Find every positive possible way to get up and get better.
You may feel buried under the weight of pains and pressure but your life won’t end like this. See yourself as a seed planted to die, decay and flourish eventually. The painful process you are going through does not nullify the beautiful product you will ultimately produce. Cultivate yourself with positive thoughts, right actions and good relationships. Pray fervently and trust God to see you through. You are a winner, enforce your victory. Spread love and light in every little way you can.
Have an amazing day my friends. I love you all. ❤❤❤
One of the easiest lies to tell is “I AM FINE.” A lot of people have this statement as an autoresponder whenever they are asked how they are doing. Some folks try hard to hide their pains because they are tired of being a burden to their friends and family.
Right now you could be working with someone who has lost everything and trying hard not to lose hope. Watch your actions and reactions around them. Be sensitive.
Right now, you could be standing next to someone who is broke and broken yet trying hard not to become complete wreckage. Whatever you do, do it with compassion. Be considerate.
Right now, you could be driving beside someone, who is dealing with secret storms yet trying hard not to give up. Whatever you do, do it with tolerance. Be patient.
This hour, you could be sitting next to someone who doing their best not to drown in the ocean of depression. Whatever you say, say it with kindness. Be compassionate.
Today, you could be waiting in line behind someone striving to heal from a terrible heartbreak or dealing with the grief of losing a loved one. Whatever you say, say it with love Be empathetic.
Speak the language of love and light over everyone. Let peace and patience guide your activities and interactions. Everyone is at different levels of life, fighting different devils.
We don’t know what someone is struggling with, we don’t know how close they are to giving up completely. Hence, we need to look at everyone through the lens of tolerance and kindness.
We sometimes need to pay attention to the plight of others and do all we can to dispense hope, healing and happiness to them. You don’t know how much a simple compliment, a hug, a smile or an encouraging text would do to help someone recover from a life-threatening experience.
Spread kindness everywhere, be an anchor to sinking souls. Dispense compliments generously, be a fountain of healing to thirsty souls.
Love out loud, be a blissful balm to bleeding souls around you.
Be generous with hugs, they have healing powers. Sprinkle sweet smiles intentionally, they are communicable.
In a world where you can be anything, choose to be affectionate, blissful and cheerful. I think that’s as simple as ABC.
