Smile At Life, It Smiles Right Back At You

Image
There's this thing they say about life. Smile at it, it smiles right back at you in return. Sometimes, life may not smile after you've flashed the first, second or numerous smiles at. Smile unrelentingly until it gets tired of upsetting you. Because it will get tired eventually.

All my life (up until now), I lived in different levels of expectations. There were times I anticipated the perfect prince charming to make my fairy tale dreams come alive, other times, I anticipated an upsurge in my career aspiration.
Were my expectations met? Yes... Nearest to yes, I think. Maybe because it took a longer time to attain unlike I imagined. Later in life, I discovered the secret: Smile at life.

Anchor Scripture: {Jeremiah 29:11}
"I have plans to take care of yourself and give you a future that you planned for

Well, It takes a renewed mind to smile at life and through life's.

The moment I began to smile at life consistently amidst its pains and gains, tasteful and distasteful e…

LAZINESS

Image
The human body is wired to be in a neutral state. Neutral means a relaxed state. The human body craves comfort, skin pampering and the good things of life.

Some of the recent people in my life think i'm a workaholic, if only they knew the "unrenewed'' Ella. lol. I'm a typical sanguine. My walk with the Holy Spirit made me overcome most of the weaknesses of a sanguine.

Oh well, I have my lazy days! Each time i'm in my lazy day feeling, Proverbs 6:4-11 pops up in my head and torments the hell out of me.

Anchor Scripture: {Proverbs 6:6-11}
"Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, which, having no captain, overseer or ruler, provides her supplies in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest.  How long will you slumber you sluggard? A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of hands to sleep -  So shall your poverty come to you like a prowler, and your need like an armed man.''
Imbibing self discipline to overcome la…

It Will Come To You

Image
You may have to rigorously go after it at the inception, but a time will come when everything you've ever desired will find its way to your bosom and there won't be room enough to contain it.

Anchor Scripture: {Proverbs 16:3}
"Commit your works to the Lord and He'll establish your thoughts.''

The start-up is usually the toughest because of the foundational work involved. A lot of plotting/planning, sleepless nights, hard work, innovative and strategic ideas will be committed. This phase will be sustained by the fruit of the Holy Spirit, not its gifts. The fruit of the Holy Spirit includes: love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.(Galatians 5:22-23a) The gifts of the Holy Spirit can be found in 1 Corinthians 12:8-10.

The law of attraction is the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on. It is the universal law that guides every human being who subscribes to the act of focusing. Aim at th…

IGNORE

Image
To ignore means to overlook, and it is not synonymous with ignorance.

Anchor Scripture: {Proverbs 27:12}
"The prudent see danger and hide, but the naive keeps going and pay the penalty.''

Ignoring isn't a sign of weakness, rather, a manifestation of strength acquired through intense discipline.

On the 2nd of October 2017 after a getaway dinner with my fiance (we were celebrating our anniversary), robbers tried to attack us but God redirected the operation of my fiance and gave me a strategy to wrestle with one of the robbers. *Email me to get the full gist.

As I tried to relax my nerve and thank God for a successfully face-off, I noticed my fiance slowing down the car with the intention of alighting from the vehicle to confront one of the robbers who tried getting physical with me. Yes he tried to that! Shaking My Head!
At first, I thought to myself that he was joking. Soon realizing that he meant business, I lunged out yelling, "Get us out of here! Get us out o…

SHUT UP!

Image
From my finding, the new bred generation prefer sycophants that'll white-wash and give them high definition fictional ''amebo''. Apparently, it is tantamount to their survival, thus giving them an imaginary sense of belonging status.
Sincerity and genuinity  has been confused for "eye service'' or ''holier art thou'' attitude.

Well, half truth is no truth.

These days, i'm afraid to tell the entire truth because "badbelles'' are in the habit of quoting portions from my statement. They never do it in entirety. Lately, the voice in my head that yells "SHUT UP!" each time i'm about to open up is on cloud nine. I'm so glad there is a voice.

Anchor Scripture: {Proverbs 17:28} ''Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if the hold their tongue.''
I used to be a talkative in the past (only with my supposed friends) and it still put me in trouble. Now that i'm a lady,…

PLEASE

Image
The word "please" is a subtle cry for mercy. It expresses one's vulnerability. The phrase 'please' has reinstated businesses, work, cordial and intimate relationships. In the same vain, it has clouded the thinking abilities of individuals, thus handicapping them. These "handicap" could entail compromising to illegitimate business deal, subscribing to peer pressure, or in serious occasion, giving up one's moral values. Some have contacted venereal diseases because of please.

It is true that vulnerability is a bridge to connection. But never forget that vulnerability is one of the ways. There are others means of attaining it. Connection in this context means legitimate links to self purpose.

Please can be used in harmless or harmful contexts. Stay woke! Ensure you're using the term "please" to achieve a purpose, not to attack a prey. If the eventual result of the use of your "please'' doesn't align with godly results, t…

You'll Never Walk Alone?

Image
The above epigram/post title "You'll never walk alone'' is familiar among football fans especially Liverpool Football Club fans.

When you walk alone, you go far but when you walk with people you go fast - Joyce Meyer
Anchor Scripture: {Ecclesiastes 3:1}
"To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven.''

There is a time to walk alone and there is also a time to walk with others. If you're still in the "Walking alone phase," nothing will stop you from walking with others at the appointed time.

Ever been in a situation where no one thinks of a certain good, but the moment God blesses you with an idea that'll tend to take you and the organization you probably work in to the next level, almost everybody in the organization begins to resist and antagonize you directly or indirectly?
In such situation, don't feel tempted to bury your ideas in a coffin. *See Ephesians 5:14 (MSG Translation) Never be scared of walking…
