Step Down and Step Up - 1

Often times we are busy with one thing or the other and sometimes feel less accomplished(fulfilled).  I (beg to say) that sometimes it’s because there are somethings that we have taken up responsibility for that we really shouldn’t. Somethings that are not exactly as important as what we were really made for.

Some of the time we actually know these things that we aren’t meant to be living in at the moment. They are not necessarily ‘bad’ or negative in the real sense but definitely would slow you down from progressing in your course.
If you don’t step down from them, they’ll keep you from stepping up to the life you are meant to live. The life that brings fullness and satisfaction.
I believe that God desires for us to live full lives, however there are decisions we have to make and stick to in order to experience the fullness of life God has for us.
The children of Eli in the bible had several things they were involved with but in the midst of all these they failed in doing the most important things God had for their lives. Samuel on the other hand chose to pay attention to what he knew God would have him do and things turned out differently for both parties.
Some of these decisions are in the things we do on daily basis and even in major life decisions.  Some of these decisions are not the easiest to make however life will be a whole lot easier or rather better if we do.
I hope you have a beautiful week ahead!!

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…

Growing Intentionally


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.
