The power of choice

Share
Thanks for all your comments and prayers. She and the family are strong, I know the Lord is in control. I've just been reflecting on the power of choice. Like today, I woke up with the choice to be sad and depressed over some issues in my life or to be happy and thankful for the faithfulness of God in challenging times!

Truth be told, I chose the former for the first few hours of the day but after much thought, meditation and listening to Kirk Franklin's "Keep your head" a zillion times I've decided to choose to be happy! Not just happy but rejoicing, rejoicing not in circumstances but rejoicing in the Lord!

I am still here, a year older today (as well as Nyemoni, Andrea Bocelli, W.B, N.A, 30+'s brother!!)hopefully wiser and stronger. I'm an aunt to the most adorable boy in the world (Bobo, na u biko...), I have food to eat, somewhere to lay my head, people that love me and have been there for me but have been taken for granted as I pursued...In life, if we look closely, the things that are actually working for us are more than the things that aren't but because we choose to focus on the issues they become more magnified.

I think I should be more a doer of what I write than a writer! Just to encourage someone that to walk with Christ is never easy, sometimes I feel like in this walk with Jesus, He always takes me on a long path but I am encouraged that it is the right path for me, I just don't know it because I'm looking at it through my eyes.

No matter what you are going through, God sees you, He knows you and He loves you. You need to believe that He loves you. He loves you a lot, He loves you even more than a mother can and you don't mess with a mother's love. So be still and know that He is God. I never tell people not to cry when they are hurt but as the tears fall from your eyes, know that it's never over until God says it's over, it's never OVER until you WIN. And win, we will because we are overcomers.

@ayo, it is well!

Today I choose to MAGNIFY the Lord. O lord, you are very great, forgive me for looking down instead of looking up. There is no one like you, there is no one who can take your place. Almighty God, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, I worship you. Ancient of Days, all-seeing and all-knowing one, I praise you. The wonders you have done, the works of your hands are marvellous in my sight today and forever more.
Sorry for being an ungrateful servant, thank you for being ever faithful. Thank you for strength and thank you because I know that I am a winner you. Amen and amen.

Remain blessed and highly favoured. 2008 continues (whether ekwensu likes it or not!) to be our year of UNCOMMON TESTIMONIES because we have been EMPOWERED to PROSPER!

why do i for some reason think your birthday is the 22nd........ happy birthday sweets, and I hope I am first to come on over and wish you a very happy birthday. You may not realise this, but YOU are a CHILD of destiny... how do I know, cause I am too, and the LORD made sure our paths crossed to encourage one another on this great walk of ours. The Lord is indeed faithful and is able to do all HE has spoken that He will do in your life. Sometimes we ask Him why He has not done it now, but He keeps telling us, HIS love is more than enough. Bask in His love and in His glory. You are not going through all this for nothing, and I know you have crossed over to the abundant life that He created you to live. Have a wonderful birthday, wish I was there, to go do some celebrating with you. You are indeed blessed, you just don't realise how much. soon you will see, why you had to be an overcome......... love you girl......
