Fathers take care of your children

Some long to spend just a little time with their children any chance given, some don’t even bother to give time to be with them. As simple as a phone call to child to find out they are ok means a whole lot to a child. The society we living in now the structure and a function of …in quote “family” has changed. There are children who are born out of marriage some due to consequence of cohabitation, adultery or promiscuousness resulting in innocent children being conceived. In that inconvenient scenery, you find some men having children with different women leading to lack of accountability to take care or be there for the child. My viewpoint however, whether a child is born out of wedlock/out of marriage, in the marriage or whatever the case might be, it is the responsibility for a man to take care of their children as well
To the mothers there is no way, no how to say you can be both a father and a mother figure to a child. There is no possible way to do both. Having a positive male role model on a child’s life is crucial as it is needed. Therefore, if a child’s father is willing to have a relationship with the child or children, mothers by all means do allow him to do so. It’s not about either of you, it’s about the children. I don’t understand mothers who use their children as a fighting tool with their children’s father. Why would someone in their right state of mind not allow a relationship between a father and a child, that’s illogical to me unless of cause it’s per court order. Now to dear father’s; whether you are with the child’s mother or not, as a seed of that child you must partake taking your role as a father. Remember that woman never conceived that child by herself, you both took part.
“How is that possible”? –a father promises to pick up a child How on a certain day and doesn’t show up. And not even a phone call of apology. Not calling a child to wish them a happy birthday. How is it for a mother to tell that child that its ok and apologize on your behalf.
I tuned in to this program on the radio station some time ago they were discussing about men who have children outside their marriages and it’s a hush hush situation, up until the child is grown and they take it upon themselves to search for their father. It cannot get any heartbreaking than that. The Word of God says husbands are the head of the house. I don’t believe as the head of the household you bring misery and pain in the family. Fathers be responsible, take care of your children and young man don’t have kids yet if you cannot take care of them. Young woman be responsible to one self, no one has the power of your body than you.

 

OVERSIZED Breakthrough in the work for you

IMG_3179I had quiet moment with our living God earlier. Going through prayer request and something resonated in me; Could it be that your been through is preparing you for a GREAT BREAKTHROUGH (Yes hallelujah!). Think about it for a minute, nothing you go through is unnoticed by God therefore it’s not wasted. Those tears shed every night will be turned to tears of joy. He sees and catches every tear, Psalm 56:8 says; You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one on your book.
He sees your hurting heart that moment you feel alone, God is present in your situation. God cares deeply for you and He even knows the number of your hairs in your head. Luke :7 Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. Going through changes is hard. Changing in schools, changing jobs or changes after divorce.
It is said change is good however going through it sometimes can be hard. I remember after going through divorce, the adjustments I had to make in some certain areas. Every change comes with variety of emotions but you need to stay positive, God is ever present in any situation. It seems hard right now but eventually things will fall into place. God is piecing together the puzzle of your life, it can only get better. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.
There is an OVERSIZED BREAKTHOURGH in the work in your life, bigger than you think it’s going to be. Hold on to your faith.

 

Support one another

IMG_3317

They wanna see you do good, but never better than them. Remember that.” Such a profound quote.

Not everyone has your best interests at heart. We live in a society that relishes tearing each other down. That allows envy, jealousy and backstabbing spirit work through some people. Most chances are; they sadly destroy relationships i.e. family relationships, marriage relationship, friendships etc. Some see your potential and have resources to help you but they will never lift a finger to support you because of competitive spirit. However; God is above it all and will see you through.
The GOOD NEWS is; where God leads He always provides, He will connect you to the right people and can even cause your enemies to support you hallelujah! As you step out, you stepping out in favor and coming in blessings. Whether the enemy approves it or not, when God is in it nobody can destroy it. Your company/business will soar, your projects will succeed, you will flourish in Jesus mighty name.
Go ahead and do your business, wishing well those who have gone before you. The Word of God says in Galatians 5:22-26: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.

 

Losing a loved one

IMG_3536

To those who lost their loved ones: Words seem inadequate to express or to console somebody who has lost their loved one. It doesn’t matter if that person was old or young; child or an adult. Whether it’s a spouse, aunt, uncle, sister, brother, etc. the pain is the same and unbearable. How do you console a mother who has lost their child or who has lost their husband? A father who has lost their child or who has lost their wife. A child who has lost their parents. That is the most painful and difficult experience that anyone can go through.

When I lost my mom, I felt like the other part of me went with her. When I lost my sister and my brothers, I couldn’t comprehend the pain and devastation. Life had to go on after I lost my dad and I didn’t understand why. You would think it will appear on the local news, on every radio station or have a big bill board informing the whole world to stop in a minute in honor of your beloved one who has just departed. No, it doesn’t happen that way as painful as it is life carries on. It is hard, time does not heal all wounds, God does. Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. It’s a process you go through with God on your side. God never promised an easy life, He promised that He will be there with us. He will comfort us, He will give us strength. Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted. Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you, be not dismayed, for I am Your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Isaiah 43:1-3 But now, this is what the Lord says He who created you, Jacob, He who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers; they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; Let’s look at John 11:1-44 Jesus was deeply moved and wept at the loss of His Lazarus. John 11:4 When He heard this. Jesus said, “This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s Son may be glorified through it”.

John 11:25 — “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me, will live even though they die. God has also prepared a new home for us where there will be no more death, tears or pain (Revelation 21:1-4). It is painful in our hearts that we will no longer be with them here on earth however one day we will meet once again in our heavenly home. May you find comfort in the Lord. May He wrap His loving arms around you during the difficult time of mourning.

 

More of You Lord, less of me

Maybe you are tired of being tied. You are desperate for just one touch from the Lord. Your eyes are sore, you cry out to Him; you plead with Him “how long should I suffer, how long should I stand in hope and believe for a change. My strength feels gone, I cannot anymore, I feel numb and empty. I need more of You Lord and less of me. I cannot do it on my own. May I decrease and You increase Lord”.

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Matthew 5:6. Have you ever felt desperate? Maybe you have experienced being desperate to be married, desperate to have a baby, desperate for employment, or desperate to be healed.

The word desperate is defined as having an urgent need or desire. It is something that you want more than anything. How about desperate for God? Did you know only God can create in us a desperation for Him? None of us wake up saying, “I really want more of God.” Our natural minds don’t operate that way. God literally must put in us a desire for more of Him. And when that desire is strong, your pride just goes out of the window and you could care less about what people think.

Picture the woman with the issue of blood feeling desperate for Jesus’ healing power. She didn’t care what anybody thought of her or whether people were looking at her or not. She was desperate. Imagine blind Bartimaeus shouting “Jesus, thou Son of David have mercy on me!” (Mark 10:47). He was desperate and tired of being sick and tired. He wanted a miracle and he knew the only person that could give him one was Jesus. The only person that can give you what you need is Jesus.

Seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you. It takes God to give you the heart of a seeker. It takes God to create in your desperation. You can ass be rest assured that when God gives you a hunger, a thirst, a desperation and strong desire for Him, He is about to satisfy you and be amazingly glorified in your life. Oh, how blessed we are. We are not blessed because we created that desire on our own. We are blessed because He gave it to us and He is about to meet every desire all our desperations per His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
