DON'T!

 'In the Journey of life,there are winding roads,
mountains wide and valleys low...'


These lines are  from a song I like so much-Called to be by Jonathan Nelson!-you should listen to it. :)

I came across this bible passage and I thought it was great I shared the beauty it brought to my soul...lol.

Romans 12:17-21(especially 21)AMP-
'Do not let yourself be overcome by evil but overcome (and master) evil with good.'

Though young(and learning) but yeah,I can say in life there are valleys and mountains. And they challenge your character,the very person that you are. The very core of your person! 

I have come to understand that the things that challenge us as children of God are to grow us. Every challenge you face as a child of God is a pointer to what you should handle through God's word/help. Talking about living above what would frustrate your emotions and person. People will always do stuff that seem evil or that you perceive as evil. But there's something here that intrigue me-you have a role to play in what happens to you. If you read that verse properly,it says, do not  allow yourself.

Its a conscious effort you make. You choose for yourself not to allow anyone to get life(peace) out of you! Like don't. Don't allow it! Meaning,its a call for you to rise above whatever could take your peace.
So you ask,How? Good question.
-Be sure you are not the issue.
-Sometimes people are frustrated and they tend to pour on others. So you want to be sure to give a listening ear,or an understanding heart(depending on the kind of relationship you have with the person).
-Never function without the Holy Spirit. He knows you and everyone around you. So he can give you wisdom to navigate. You know what I mean? :)

So yeah,you have the key to been joyful and at peace per time. You are strong like that  #winks. But that's the truth!

Doors Do Open

Have you ever felt like you have exhausted all of your options and you can’t seem to find a way out?  Or you know that there is more that can be out of a case you are on? I can’t imagine what the widow whose husband left some debts for her to pay before he died must have gone through.

Wait, you think all that happened is all there is. In the sense, you have pressed all your buttons and made all your moves. Knocked all the doors you know and made the calls. You now think its over. You think there’s no way out again. Be there! You seem to have forgotten so quick that God is the one that makes things happen. Look at the widow whose husband left her in debt. She was broke. No money no possession my sons up for sale kindof broke. Her two sons were going to be taken captive to pay for the debts that was on ground. Of course she was devastated. She had no possession to sell to get some money. The only thing she knew to do was to go meet Elisha who her husband served with. I imagine she had…

FOCUS N or P

I’m sure you are wondering by now, what does focus N or P mean?
Yeah,its worth the think. I’m sure you are familiar with the way a camera works, at least to some extent. The android phone/iPhone users can own this complement. You’ld often realize that some pictures don’t come out ‘fine’ or clear because whoever was behind the phone did not focus it right. Having seen the picture, you be like ‘omg this picture is blurry’. How many have friends who take blurry pictures (winks.)- this is by the way.(I do that sometimes). Youl’d realize that one or two taps on your android phone makes the image much clearer.
For my photographer folks, a gentle turn of that Nickon D3300’s focus ring  and or zoom ring would give a perfect picture. 
Just like a camera can produce both positive and negative images, so also our minds, based on our focus.

In Numbers 13:30-31, Caleb and Joshua happen to bring back a good report as compared to the report of the other representatives that were told to go spy the…
