World's AIDS Day.

World's AIDS Day.Marked every annually in 1st December.  I got to know about this day through a student Medical Association in my uni called 'EMSA' (European Medical Student Association). Somehow I got really interested in been actively involved this year in my own little way.

(Though this is coming a little late,its been hanging in my dashboard since 31stNov.)

Just a short overview of what its about:
Its that day of the year that had been set out since 1988 to raise an awearness on HIV and show support for people living with  HIV. Usually a theme is chosen for this campaign following consultation with UNAIDS,WHO and other agencies to prevent and treat HIV/AIDS.
Since 2011 the theme for World's AIDS Day has been 'Getting to Zero: Zero new HIV infections. Zero deaths from AIDS-related illnesses. Zero discrimination.

There's  this red ribbon thats used as a default sign of support:

I especially want to write about Zero discrimination. Discrimination is said to be a bias or prejudice resulting  in denial of opportunity,or unfair treatment regarding selection,promotion,or transfer.It is practiced commonly on the grounds of factors which are irrelevant to a person's competence or suitability.

I believe that every life(human) has to respected irrespective of their age,gender or race,including an AIDS patient.

You can make a decision to support someone living with aids if you ever meet them and make it one person less to getting to Zero(in discrimination).

You can change the mind of someone who is involved in discriminating.

To every AIDS patient out there,probably you have been rejected,discriminated in one way or the other,though I can't be there to physically show support and be a part of your love experience in this new journey but accept your present health state and face the future with a mind of writing a beautiful script of your life. I believe it very possible :), it  very possible. Only decide to rise above; I know its easier said than done,but take it one day at a time.

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…

Associations.

Good day everyone.
I want to share with you today one thing that is very much important in our lives especially in this time and age.  It's about associations.
It is not everyone your paths get to cross that are ordained  to be in your life.  It is not everyone dressed in the robe of what you desire that are the originals or that are meant to remain in your life.
You see, in this time and age where people dress to impress and speak for respect, we need the wisdom of God and the spirit of discernment to dicifer between who is true and who is not. To dicifer between who should remain in our space/sphereand who shouldn't. Just like a human would put on the Mickey Mouse costume, there are people who create impressions that are not necessarily who they really are,there are also those who seem like should remain around our lives but in the real sense, they're meant to be far from us.

Enjoy the read๐Ÿ˜˜.

*******Hi Everyone,
It's an awesome privilege to be here sharing with you guys.
This blog has been a blessing to me personally and I'm so proud of what Dr Grace ๐Ÿ˜is doing here. She invited me to share from my heart and I have been pondering on what to share because I like to avoid situations like this ๐Ÿ˜ƒ but God keeps pushing me and breaking my walls.

I was at a hangout for young leaders yesterday and it was an awesome time in God's presence with God's people. One thing I've learnt in recent times is the beauty of growing together with power minds chasing after Christ and making an impact in our world for the kingdom.
In these days and times, a whole lot is going on and we cannot run this race alone. We need a support system to help us grow int…
