Tell It As It Is.

Over the weekend there was a discussion that came up from the online University that I enrolled in #Purpose University. The discussion stemmed out of the podcast from the director of the school. It was centered on telling one’s story as  one  of the ways of walking in the fullness of one’s purpose on this side of eternity present.

It was made clear that ,most of the time,the things we experience on this journey called Life is indicative of what each one of us is designed to be and do.

Though there were differing opinion on the subject matter, as some of the discussants were of the opinion that not all stories are worth telling, but if we look at it from the angle of using stories for the discovering of our purposes and running them well, Then it is expedient to share our stories,{The good , the bad, and the in betweens}.

Life is full of experiences, and the most authentic life on purpose is that of transparency. 

Why is it difficult to tell our story of shame,defeat, and those ones that makes look somehow with others,it is because we don’t want to be seen as weak, or vulnerable instead we try to always paint pictures of a perfect “goody too shoe” life, that is not always the truth.

Sometimes we are also afraid of taking responsibilities for those seemingly ‘ugly’ episodes of our story lines,the truth of the matter if we are truly living the God-life and totally trust him we will understand that when we own up and take responsibility, the greater the chances of freedom,that freedom leads to the freedom of others as they hear our stories.

Instead of going round and round in circles trying to find your purpose,why don’t you ask yourself, what is my story? what is the pattern of life that is peculiar to me? As you begin to ask these questions, you also find that you are able to help someone else with a similar story of life looking for a clue or two.

In your vulnerability lies also your strength,because it takes a strong person to stand and tell…it as it is! Your story is your take off point for the discovery and the pursuit of purpose.

One of the advantages of telling your story is that it frees you from the burden of keeping it to yourself,thereby causing more pain, depression and which often leads to suicidal attempts.

Telling your story is also a way of confronting your fears, because what you confront can condemn you. sometimes they may be stories of shame,that you don’t want to admit to yourself,let alone tell others because of the label or the stigma that goes with your story, the truth is once you are able to share, you get past the labeling and the stigmatization with time.

Every story can be woven into the fabric of your purpose , to create a tapestry of a life hinged on purpose with every shade of the different seasons of your life. Sometimes certain dark sides may not come as necessary inclusion because they don’t relate to one’s journey but the truth is that your freedom in telling it ,will free others.

What if my story scares people away from me? Your story of truth cannot drive people away, yes, they may not want to warm up to you at first, but with time, they will begin to come , sometimes in disguise, but they will not run away especially because you are now like a fountain spring of succor.

Looking through the pages of the Scriptures , we find purpose driven patriarchs and matriarchs who by their stories brought freedom and great deliverance for the people in their time. Moses was one major reference who at one point in his journey of life was labelled  a ‘murderer’ in trying to run away from that stigma, was the opening point for the great woek of deliverance, God had for him.

What about Apostle Paul, his stories ended up becoming great admonition and succour for the early believers,and it is still relevant through the age.

Our stories can birth great deliverance,cause reformation and bring changes to our world,when we tell the stories as it is,without being  seen as vulnerables,or weaklings.

It’s time to tell your story as it is, own it, be authentic about it, you may be saving a life as you share your exxperience on this journey of life.

Psalm 107:2

Let the redeemed of the LORD  tell their story,those he redeemed from the hand of the foe.

Have you been redeemed from tha hand of foes in the name of Domestic violence, rape,assault, depression, low self esteem,drug addiction,pornography, rejection and all those foes waging war at you?

It’s time to tell your story, someone out there needs it….Now!

There is something in the house.

No matter how scanty or scarce things might be or look like, there is always something somewhere in the house.

History has a countless record of ordinary people who found something out of their seemingly nothing situations and became world-changers as a result of that.

This reminds me of the story of that widow from 2kings 4:1-7, She was in a dire situation which looked bleak and seemed like help was nowhere to be found. Her husband just died and she had just found that they had become bankrupt all of a sudden, and now the creditors were threatening to take her sons as lawful captives…..at least until she can pay up all the debts.

You know the whole story. Often times we think we are in a barren ,bleak place without hope of productivity, but if you will just look within and around you, and you find that there is still something in the house, that can be used to propel you and those around you into a place of relevance and significance.

There is something in the house, either a skill,ability or talent , you have something that God has deposited in you to make an impact and to bring glory to Him.

You may be feeling stuck and controlled by the circumstances  around but God has a great plan to lift you out of that despondency,because there is something in your house, He wants to turn the little insignificant skill,talent into a big deal so that you can actually be an extension of His goodness and love on this side of eternity.

There is something in the house,anchored in  the purposes of God for your life,and because He knows your address,He is ready to turn that ‘little or nothing’ into much when you trust Him all the way.

There is something in the House, Look up to God ,to show you what it is and where it is,and watch Him multiply it as you put it to use.

 

Shalom!

Weary Wanderer.

Life is a journey and on that journey, there are those who just wander around.

Individuals  who just go through the motions, through the cycles of life, without asking questions about life in itself. They seem to see no purpose in life beyond enduring the day to day living. Just getting at the slightest chance life gives.

To them things just happenned , no clue, no plan, no enthusiam, Nothing!

Trust me, I was once like that, clueless about why I am here, no excited about anything, because there was nothing to be excited about. (So I thought)!

Until I got to the point where I became dissatisfied about everything around me, and within me.There must be more to this Life!

I remember this old hymnal from back in the days whose first line goes like this; “weary wanderer, stop and listen!, I can’t remember the other part of the Hymn, but this first line as remained with me for as long as I can remember.

As I began to listen more, I found out , and I am still discovering  that I am made of more, in service to God and fellow Human beings, I am beginning to give full expressions to the “more’ that has been inputed in my DNA even before time began.

I began to embrace and love life more, and to be thankful and grateful for each passing moment for it a rare gift. Maintaining a positive attitude in the face of confronting low self esteem,and lack of confidence is not an easy task.  The story’s changed from ” once-upon-a-time-weary-wanderer ‘ to a vibrant ,confident ,Godchaser in pursuit-of-purpose.

To apprehend all that for which God through Christ apprehended me.

Per adventure, there is a weary wanderer, just like I used to be, reading this right now,the voice of your creator is calling on you to stop! and listen to the plans and purpose He has for you. Jer 29:11.

Maybe you know someone, in this state, Kindly love on them, show them through your acts that in deed life is beautiful,contrary to what he/she may be going through.

Let them know that they are never alone, or forsaken in this journey,show them in love that , they have a great life ahead, so they should not settle down with “going through the motion”.

Weary Wanderer stop and listen , God’s voice is calling you to reason, to life, to purpose.

Shalom,

Wisdom Wednesday.

08-03-2016 11-01-05.PNG

Loving others is the only way to fully live the God kind of life.

As we love and show love to others by our words and action, we join forces with our Heavenly Father to make His intents a reality in the earth realm.

Let the ZOE of God flow through you today,as you meet the needs of others with that gentle touch, a smile at a stranger, a wink.

Go the extra mile with a kind word, a kind act, be an extension of  God’s life  Today!

Let this mind be in you as it was in Christ Jesus!

Have a wonderful Wednesday.
