|One nice toasty afternoon|
|Just at the start of Spring....|
So, Nigeria has been in the news daily and it totally saddens my heart to hear tales of kidnap, bombings, killings, lootings, e.t.c. by boko haram. It is so sad, so so depressing. My heart goes out to families who have lost loved ones, my heart goes out to those who have been injured during the bomb blasts and most especially, my heart goes out to the families of the kidnapped school girls. I hope and pray they are returned safely and unharmed to their families, I pray that peace reigns in Nigeria and I pray that every one last member of the boko haram sect and their allies/sponsors be exposed and brought to books in Jesus name.
I saw this update on a friend's wall on facebook and wanted to share it on here. I find it quite interesting & true....written by Chioma O.
Never allow anyone play God in your life. You are the CEO of your life. Run your life with the One who runs things-Papa God Himself. Any attempt to arm-twist you against your will should be resisted. Sometimes, the moment you refuse to give in to them manipulators and stand your ground, they fly off the handle, put up a fight, hiding their insecurities behind judging/condemning you, a sure proof that they never had your interest at heart-it’s all about them.
Even when they claim to be “loving/protecting” you by subtly imposing their decisions on you, be smart, see beyond the veil and don’t fall for it. Tell Mr/Mrs manipulator that you are not game. Love does not force its will on others. Even our Lord Jesus Christ never coaxed anyone into accepting Him and His message. People followed Him on their own volition based on the conviction of the Holy Spirit.
You are the custodian of your life. Your life is a gift of trust from God and you are solely accountable to Him.Therefore, take FULL charge and be in charge. Never seek the approval of men. If God approves you, it doesn’t matter who disapproves you. You and God are a majority.
Man is a free moral agent, having the absolute right to think and make decisions that align with God’s perfect plan and purpose for his life. Therefore, follow your God instinct and do not be apologetic for it nor concede your rights to someone who has no right to speak over your life. Like someone rightly said, insecure people manipulate, secure people activate. On a different note, please do not forget to spare a thought and a prayer for our missing girls.
Wish you a blessed & fun week! :)
