Mistake/s

D5E513D8-2961-4838-86D9-07C31408FE6A

When I started using a pen at my primary school, and I made a mistake. I would try hard to erase it before submitting it to my teacher.
Sometimes, I would use a chalk to clean my mistake but it later re-appeared.
So I began to use saliva, it worked, but only to leave holes in my books.
My teachers then used to beat me for being outrageously dirty. But all I tried to do was to cover my error.
One day, a kind hearted teacher who loved me so much called me aside and he said, “Anytime you make a mistake, just cross it and move on”.
He said further “Trying to erase your mistakes would only damage your book for nothing”.
I told him in protest that I don’t want people to see my mistake.
My loving teacher laughed and said “Trying to erase your mistake will make more people know about your mess and the stigma is for life”.
•Have you made some mistakes in life? Cross it over and move on.
Don’t expose yourself as a result of trying to cover your mistakes.
Better things are ahead of you. #POWER!

Forgive yourself

F714A4BF-8119-4471-82B0-974929E6059C

No matter how many mistakes you have made, there are in the past. God has cleaned and made you new. Let those who live in your past and keep reminding you all the wrongs you have done not to affect your new you and your faith. God honors our faith not our past. We all make mistakes at one point in our lives but it shouldn’t define you. Also; you cannot repeat the same mistake repeatedly. Stop going back to the bad habits, stop hurting people, your family and loved ones by your words and actions.
Definition of mistake is a wrong action attributable to bad judgment or ignorance or inattention. You might have made bad judgment about a situation leading to make bad decisions or said unpleasant things to your family or friends and hurting your loved ones. When you confess your wrongs to the Lord, He will cast them as far as the east is from the west, and He will remember them no more. (1John 1:9-10; If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us). Ask forgiveness too to the ones you have wronged, it doesn’t make you a lesser human being but it shows your maturing and your sincerity.
Sometimes we cause self-inflict pain in our lives by not forgiving our own self. Yes, you might have hurt by other people but there are lots of situations where we hurt ourselves. We hurt ourselves when we hold on to the weight of past mistakes and failures. We do more harm than good to keep beating ourselves up for the wrong decisions made in the past. We hurt ourselves when we don’t see anything beyond that and become comfortable with the “pain”. I believe God is telling you today to “let it go” forgive yourself. Allow God to start working in you and the healing process resume. Remember forgiveness is for you.
There is nothing to gain by holding yourself in unforgiveness and there is everything to gain by releasing yourself from unforgiveness. You got to let go and make move to a positive direction. Never give up on yourself after a mistake, learn from it.  Forgive and set yourself free.

Communication

80E1C941-8A65-49A0-9D3B-2C44C6A2FD96

Communication in any relationship is important. Our communication with God is extremely as important as well. We communicate with Him through prayer. Communication requires two people to respond to each other. It’s like oxygen when people refuse to communicate it shuts off and closes that open air of communication in a relationship. Life without prayer is dead. Marriage without communication is dead. Social media is not communication, telling everybody who cares to hear about your problems is not communication. Direct communication with your spouse is what is required. Direct communication with God is our daily requirement. Amen!

In Spirit, To the one who is hurting right now; I pray that God wipes away all of your tears and give you peace. Whatever the situation may be, whatever is troubling you, whatever might be causing you pain, whatever may have caused you to hurt, I pray that God will bring healing to you. I pray that you will find room in your heart to allow God to minister to your spiritual needs. Let God arise in your life. May all your enemies be scattered and put to shame. I pray that God will perfect that which concerns you. I pray that God will turn your mourning into dancing again and lift you up on eagles wings. May your strength be renewed. May you be able to smile again. I pray that even though your weeping may endure for a night, may your joy come in the morning. Whatever you are finding difficult to let go of, may God strengthen you and enable you to let go and let God move you on. I believe God is saying you have to move on, you have to let go of the pain, the hurt and the disappointments. He cares for you. I pray that today will be the beginning of change in your life. May God bless you and keep you, may the countenance of the Almighty shine upon you, remain with you and abide with you. May the joy of the Lord be your strength today and always AMEN.
