Who Did You Marry? (Part Four)


Now, I know some of you might have been through the worst nightmare imaginable to man. That, however, does not make your case irredeemable. You are not the first, and you will not be the last to have gone through such. Others have been there and have made something useful with their lives. You are no exception. The only question is what is your response? Are you willing to live yet again? Are you willing to heal?

Those who have healed have given the right definition of their pain. (Did you know you have the power to do that? You can define your pain in a way that empowers you, rather than allows it to define you. You’ve got the power, why are you not using it?) Life happens to us all. Those who win and overcome have defined it as that which happened for them, and not necessarily to them, nor against them. 

Can you believe there is an advantage in your disadvantage? Can you believe there is power in your pain? Can you believe there is beauty in the unimaginable circumstance you’ve been through? Can you believe it is and can work for you, in the today and tomorrows of your life? Aren’t you wiser? Don’t you know better? Aren’t you stronger? Don’t you have a new resolve to live by? 

Having been to the very bottom, is there any other thing you can’t handle? What are you doing with all these? You got treasures from your pains. Don’t let any self-pity deny you of those. It is time to pick up your broken pieces and make masterpieces out of them. There is life after your pain. There is a life after your death experience. It is never over until you fail to try (start) again. The onus is on you. 

What are you doing with this life you have been given?

Believers' Prayer Meeting with St. Akin | R 5 W 5 D 3.


You are welcome to another day in the Upper Room. I am glad you could make a date with us. It is our obedient act in coming to Him who answers prayers - petitions, supplications, intercessions, etc. Why won't we come? Why won't come to draw from the well of our salvation? Why won't we come to Him who has all the answers to all the questions in our life? And, what's more? He longs to give them to us, without reservation. O Lord of life, I come. Let's pray.

Believers Prayer Meeting with St. Akin | R 5 W 5 D 2.



Welcome to another day in the Upper Room. I am glad to be heard, and can never tire of saying so. This is home. This is my place of refuge, my safe place. I am pleased to be here. I am pleased and privileged to have access to this place. It is my source, my place of wealth. It is common for me to be in the presence of Him whom I here to show forth. My fulfillment is found in my representation of His fullness. So, let it be God. Shine forth in and through me. Let's pray.

Do Something Challenging Every Week (3C/25). Part C.

Introduction: 

This is the third part of the third of 25 Ways to Drastically Improve our Self-Confidence. Somewhere in our fantasy and sometime in our lives we all had wished for a life without stress, gravity, friction, or boundaries. Right? Let us for a second imagine such a world. What will we be missing? A whole lot. Nothing will truly work. It will be the definition of chaos like no other. The seeming limitations are actually for our own good. They help us gain roots, grit, and audacity. 

With no friction, for example, we will not be able to stop once we set out any motion. Without gravity, we will all be sucked into space. With no stress, there will be no reason to do anything, whatsoever. Where there are no boundaries, everything is up to assumptions. Assumptions empower the emotions and instincts to run riot. Those are two deadly things to combine. Left to run riot, they can practically make us do ANYTHING we can imagine and even more, including doing absolutely nothing.

Defining The Boundaries:

"Everybody ought to do at least two things each day that he hates to do, just for practice." (William James) And, we know practice makes permanence, second nature. It makes better and better, unto excellence. This need not be haphazard but planned. You don't want chaos, you want an ordered change. So, the first way to push boundaries in your life is to be the initiator. What are the demons in your life, things limiting you from being all you can and want to be? 

There are some things that can be changed, and there are others that cannot be changed. Wisdom is knowing the difference. Let wisdom rule. Not everything that can be changed needs to be changed. There are things that need to be kept as landmarks from generation to generation. These include our core values and beliefs, for as long as they are working for us. Not everything that can be changed is within our immediate control. And, that is okay. Life will not hold us ransom for such. 

Life only holds us ransom for the things that can change, needs to change, and are within our immediate control and influence. These we have no excuse concerning. These are the ones life expects us to win our victories over. These are the ones we are called to practice, exercise, and work out. These are the mountains we want to get down to moving, howbeit, one stone at a time. This is different for each of us, for it has to be such as in the direction of the goals, vision, and purpose we have set and discovered for our life.

Miracles are trailing, overtaking, and overwhelming your life in all the good places. This is your week of testimonies. Do you believe it? Then say what the spirit of faith will say. Start declaring all that you want. Let's pray.

Believers' Prayer Meeting with St. Akin | R 5 W 4 D 5.



Welcome to another day at the Throne Room. I am so glad you could make it. I sure was glad when they said let us go to the house of our God. It is my place of peace, my place of rest, my quiet place, my place of refuge. My strength is in God. He is my muscle. Is He yours also? Let's pray.
