Now Is The Time For You To Help Each Other From Different Parts Of The World.

Hi guys!

I will keep it simple.

How can we assist each other in anyway? Yes not everything as to be financially inclined but it seems is the most challenging issue everyone is facing right now.

What about helping in services and profession. You can help someone in getting a job or linking one to provide a service. Don’t get me wrong, it is not easy but we can try.

I have a lot of financial issues on ground. Rent to pay, debts on ground, even my car am using for bolt to put food on the table and also pay some bills is in a serious mess. All I know is just a phase and things will surely work out.

I am opened to render my services in Advertising, SEO, or farming. Please contact me. If you also want to assist in anyway or led by the Holy Spirit I don’t mind at all. 😁😁😁🙏🙏🙏 God bless you!

I believe we will overcome every circumstances and storm by the grace of God. He will give us the strength and ways to make things change for our good.

Have a wonderful week!

The Single Best Way to Respond to Difficult Times in Your Life

This is a guest post and a reminder that your testimony is here.

We all face difficult times in our lives. I’ve learned that there is one way to respond that is supreme and will help you, preserver, in life.

Some time ago, I was in a season of life that I was ready to be out of as soon as I entered it. If you’re reading this (and you’re human), you know exactly what I’m talking about. Thankfully, I made it through these difficult times, which we always do. But this time was different because I found an alternative way to respond.

I am wired in a way that I always immediately try to fix everything that isn’t right. (Sound familiar?) And during this difficult time I’m referring to in this blog post, that’s exactly what I started doing.

But this difficult time in my life was different from any prior experience…

I couldn’t fix or change what I was going through. As a result, I quickly became exhausted. I put a lot of time into trying to fix everything. Then one morning, I broke. You see, I had been pleading with God for weeks on this matter. But I would continuously ask God for the same thing over-and-over. But this morning, I decided to do something different.

Instead of asking God to fix my problems because I couldn’t, I instead decided to sit quietly and listen for His voice. Sounds simple, but when I just wanted everything “back to normal” or to be fixed in my life, it took a lot to sit quietly and not ask for God to intervene on my behalf to improve my situation.

When I finally got quiet before God, He responded.

I’ll never forget it. I heard God speak clearly, and I wasn’t sitting quietly for hours; no, it happened pretty quick! Do you want to know what God said to me that morning?

“Be still, and know that I am God.”

That is all He said—nothing more, nothing less. I remember sitting there for a moment in shock. Then I was left with those words echoing in my head.

It was a strange moment of revelation and peace. I realized at that moment that my job wasn’t to fix or even change the difficult times I was facing. In fact, there was probably a purpose for what I was going through. What God wanted for me to do was to be still, which means to be at peace with Him, knowing in the end, He would take care of me.

A few weeks later, I stumbled upon a Bible verse that ended up being strangely familiar.

“Be still and know that I am God.” – Psalm 46:10

I had no idea that the very words God spoke to me were also in the Bible! But, it was a similar moment of revelation and internal peace. A moment that I, to this day, am eternally grateful for.

During these few tough weeks of my life, I ended up learning that there are times that we need to take a step back, exalt God for who He is, and be faithful in trusting God through our difficulties. We need to remember that He knows everything we are going through, good or bad. No matter what season of life you may be in, good or bad, I encourage you to don’t be in a rush for the next thing. Take a step back, and refocus on God and His goodness. Thank Him for where you are!

Are you wondering what I was struggling with during this season of my life?

I typically like to give context in my blog posts, but I am intentionally leaving it out today. Not to seem private or secretive, but instead to further prove a point. It doesn’t matter what we’re going through or what we’re struggling with. It could be big, and it could be small, no matter what, though, God is in control. If we can learn to be still and know that He is God, then, in the end, we will make it through what we’re facing in life.

Ultimately, here is the point I want to get across to you today:

God is in the midst of every season of your life, even the difficult times. Be still today; exalt God for who He is.

In conclusion of this blog post, I wanted to end it with a scripture speaking to me ever since I was a child; I believe it relates heavily to what I’m sharing today.
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. – Psalm 26:1-6
I don’t know what you’re going through in life right now or what you may be struggling with. But I know that no matter how good or bad things are right now, the best thing you can do is slow down, be still, and know that God is still God and He is still in full control of your situation.

This piece relates to what am going through in my life. I decided to share with everyone facing a storm in their life.

This is Not What I Envisioned for My Future

Guest post from Crystal Castillo.

“Dream Big!” That’s the message we grow up listening to. We’re encouraged to make big plans for our future. Unfortunately, though, our lives rarely unfold the way we dreamed them to.

Now don’t get me wrong, having big dreams for our lives is good! Envisioning ourselves with successful and prosperous lives is ok! Yet God desires for us to trust the process He has us in, even if our lives look different than we expected.

Trusting God with Our Future

God’s desire for us is to trust not in our circumstances but in the creator of the dreams we long for. When we trust harder rather than dream bigger, we acknowledge that God is in charge of our dreams, not us. However, if we dream big rather than trust hard, we assume our dreams and desires are up to us to fulfill.

God did not create us to depend on our own strength and ability. He intended for us to derive our strength and ability from Him alone.

Life is a Journey

I’m under 30. Some people believe that to be very young. Others think it’s the age to have your whole life figured out. I tend to believe the latter Yet I’m learning that life is a journey with each new day.

We should live life one day at a time and not rushed. Embrace one day at a time, depend on God’s daily bread, and don’t worry about tomorrow.

The Unexpected Journey

Although my life did not unfold the way I envisioned it, it has taught me a lot about God. It has taught me about His perfect plans for my life and future and for the lives of others.

I can easily blame myself for my life not unfolding the way I planned it. Sure, I could have done things differently. But at the end of the day, God is sovereign over everything. He is sovereign over the lives of His children.

Through this journey of unexpected detours and redirection, God has helped me see my circumstances from His perspective. I have learned to thank God for not allowing my plans for the future to happen the way I hoped they did. Blaming God for our situation never resolves anything.

Life’s Not Easy

Sweet friend, life was never meant to be easy. If life were easy, we wouldn’t have a reason to pursue God or seek His guidance for our lives. Furthermore, life was not meant to unfold the way we wish it did. Life was designed for us to depend on God. Even Jesus had to depend on God for the way His life would unfold.

The Bible tells us that Jesus did not want to experience the suffering of dying on the cross. In fact, He prayed to God to spare Him from having to endure the pain of being nailed on the cross. Jesus knew what was to come for Him, which is why He prayed and asked God for another way if possible. He believed that anything and everything is possible for God. Jesus was not afraid to express His fears to God.

Though Jesus prayed for an alternative route, He still prayed for God’s will to be done instead of His. God’s will was ultimately the best for all of us. And the same holds true in our own lives.

Without Jesus’s crucifixion, you and I wouldn’t have the privilege of a relationship with God the way we do. His selfless sacrifice paved the way. Jesus trusted God, and His obedience saved us from the consequences of eternal death.

Jesus is the perfect example for us to follow when we feel anxious or scared about our future. As humans, we want our life to unfold a certain way, we want a specific career, we want a certain spouse, and we want what our flesh craves – the opposite of what God wants for us.

Friend, we can trust that no matter what we go through or what our life looks like right now, God will make all things work out for us (Romans 8:28). He used Jesus’s pain and suffering to bring salvation to the world. He too will use our pain and suffering to bring glory to His name and freedom to our realm of influence.
We can rest in knowing that God’s ways are far better than what we believe is good for us.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9

Delayed Isn’t Negative

Good day fam!

So what motivated me today to write about this topic was the day after my wedding weekend, we were heading back to Abuja from Lagos Nigeria. Our flight was supposed to be 10:35am. But we later left the airport around 1:45pm. I got angry and wanted to cause a scene in the airport. Other passengers were diverstated and furious with the airline. We had other plans me and my wife, but we cancelled the appointment. Luckily for us, our flight was announced to board. As I sat down catching my breath, I felt God used that whole situation to speak to me and maybe speak to someone reading this now.
What struck me after thinking about the whole thing, was that everyone immediately thinks very negatively when it comes to delayed flights. Have you ever thought about why those flights are delayed? Have you ever thought that a few more minutes wait on your end may be beneficial to you or someone else? Maybe theres a good reason its delayed. Lets think about it.

Problem A: Weather

Maybe the flight was grounded so the people on the flight or the one before would be kept safe due to weather. If you haven’t noticed weather is completely out of our control, so why do we let it upset us when it changes our plans. God is in control of all things, even the things we believe we are in control over. His ways are greater than our ways (Isaiah 55:8-9). God has greater things in mind and knows what He is doing. He doesn’t want you taking off in a thunder storm, so just trust Him!

Problem B: Mechanical
Im sure you’ve heard this one on the plane. You were told the plane was waiting for someone to fix a mechanical issue, or repair a flat tire, or something different. People of course get upset at this too. It makes me wonder if they would prefer to take off immediately and not fix the problem? God always has our best interests at heart, and while we may believe that we want things immediately, He is more than likely delaying your situation to protect you or those around you.

Problem C: Other Passenger
Now this has been me before so I know it happens. The plane waits to close the door because they know you are coming from a connecting flight and will be a few minutes late. Typically your connecting flights will hold that door so you can make it and not have to find a new flight. But then you get on the plane you just ran for and all those people sitting waiting on you are upset because you are keeping them from where they need to be. God may be doing this in your life right now. Maybe you aren’t sure why God has you moving somewhere, or has you in a certain job when you want to leave. Maybe He is simply waiting for someone else to be where they need to before you can move forward effectively. in short…you are NOT the only person on the planet, and God has more than just you to fit into His perfect plan. Maybe just trust the He knows what He is doing and celebrate with those around you in the mean-time.

You can look at God as an air-traffic controller of sorts. He is responsible for making sure people get to where they are supposed to be, and He is also responsible for the safety of all the travelers. He has to be focused on the safety and accuracy of getting people where they need to go, as opposed to all the “wants” of the individual travelers.

So you may think you are in a holding pattern in your life, but don’t look at it in a negative way. Remember that there is a reason you are delayed, and until you take off you should enjoy the moment and location you are in.

Galatian 5:22-23
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.”

Isaiah 55:8-9
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
