Forgive yourself


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.



Families can be one of the severe pull her/him down syndrome there is in somebody’s life I tell you. Just because they know you, they sometimes assume they have a right to down cast you every time. I witnessed an act of sadness when family members came head on accusing each other of not being supportive to one another. FAMILY no matter what – should always come first. First and foremost; love one another, support each other, celebrate one another, encourage each other and build one another. If your family is fenced with that strong bond of unity nothing can come in and try to destroy or divide. It starts within the family; how can you love a stranger when you don’t love your own family. Show the outside what is in the inside •••LOVE. Charity begins at home.
I encourage sibling bond and love all the time. It’s sad when I talk to young people and I hear stories like “I cannot get along with my sibling/s or I haven’t spoken with my sister or brother for years I mean how is that possible. God designed families, we need to fight for our families not to fight with our families. Talk things over rather than sweep them under carpet. I realized the causes of most family strain sometimes is unforgiveness. In most families there is bitterness, anger, hate and sometimes envy of which it not supposed to be. Once again let’s uplift our families and show support and love to one another.
Colossians 3:13 Bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.
James 4:11 “Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.”
Proverbs 11:29 He who brings trouble on his family will inherit only wind, and the fool will be servant to the wise
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.




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!



Money cannot buy the greatest gift from God


Money can buy many things. In fact it can almost buy everything. Money can by friends if you’re lonely. It can buy planes or boats to transport you where cars can’t. Money can even buy the body’s most vital organs and doctors to perform the procedures. But the one thing that money cannot buy is the greatest gift from God and that is love. Self love is good for what it does but self love can not replace the love that we NEED TO RECEIVE from sources outside of ourselves. People often say that they are content without someone loving them but that’s not the case for the majority of people. As people we often find ourselves chasing after love and the reason is because we will suffocate without it in the same manner that we would without sufficient amount of oxygen. Love is something we need. Take a look at the commandments Jesus said were the greatest. Love God and love your sister and brother. Husband love your wives and wives love your husbands. A lack of love is destroying our world, homes, and communities. Love is desired, required and when it’s acquired the devil gets fearful. Praise God through loving Him, yourself and your sisters and brothers saved and unsaved.
