How to Find Hope and Strength by Remembering Who You Are

Image
As a child and an adult, I love animations. My best friend recently reminded me of Disney's classic, The Lion King, and it brought back many memories and a lesson I had forgotten. One of my most memorable scenes from The Lion King is when Mufasa, the main character's father, tells his son Simba, "Remember who you are." This simple phrase holds a powerful message that is relevant not only to the story's plot but also to our everyday lives.    It's important to remember that our circumstances do not define us; our identity in Christ does.   Our days on earth are like trying to navigate a maze blindfolded—you're bound to hit a few walls along the way! Job loss (I can relate), health issues, divorce, financial challenges, all comes with the experience of living. When you get slammed into a wall, it's easy to define yourself based on your circumstances. This is a dangerous path because it can lead you to forget who you truly are. You may start to be

Finding Inner Peace: Nurturing Divine Connection Amidst Life's Turmoil

Image
Peace, a divine gift from God, is often disrupted by external turmoil characterized by our everyday lives. But maintaining inner peace amidst life's challenges is crucial for our holistic well-being. In my journey, I've learned to cultivate and sustain my peace through connection with God. Philippians 4:6 reminds us of God's surpassing peace, accessible through trust and surrender. God's presence, the assurance of God's companionship, offers solace and joy as we go along our journeys and when life disrupts us. By consciously staying connected to God throughout the day, through mindful prayers, one can experience His comforting presence, joy, and the strength to keep going. You can keep your passion for living ablaze, fueled by alignment with God-given purpose. As you go through your day, week, and even year, strive to keep your peace - guard it so nothing disturbs it. Only a peaceful person can experience a purposeful, joyful life. So, if you seek peace, turn to God

Embracing Change: Building Strength in the Face of Adversity

The great thing about being a writer is you can go back and read your own articles and get some advice from yourself. I am sharing highlights from an article I wrote a while ago that's anchoring me at this point in my life. Here are three things to remember: When life throws one of its many curve balls, it leaves you spiraling.    Life's got its highs and lows .  We all go through good and bad times, but the key is to remember that there's always a brighter day ahead after the tough times.   Change is inevitable. It's  how we deal with it that matters—whether we face loss, defeat, or unexpected twists. You can learn from how others adapt and bounce back from these challenges.   Find strength in your faith.   Everything that has a beginning must have an end. For a godly person, the end is always peace. " Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright, for the end of that man is peace" Psalm 37:37 Lastly, it's all about perseverance and patience. Hang in there

Living Your Best Life: Decade by Decade with God's Guidance

Image
  As our life seasons change, what God plans for us and expects us to get involved may change. We must keep listening to his direction and stay alert for his guidance for change, so we are not stuck in the past, hung up on what he asked us to do in a past season that's no longer relevant.   As God's dear children, we must be attentive to hear what he asks us to do now, in this season. That's why being open-minded, flexible, and staying in tune with his spirit is critical to getting direction for the today of our lives and not the yesterday.    I like to think of my life and plan for it in decades, blocks of ten years. It's easier to project for a short enough time to prepare and a long enough time to execute. When I pray, I ask God for wisdom, guidance, and direction for what to do and how to live the best life is calling me to live each decade.    What should I do in my 20s, 30s and 40s? As I look back on each decade, I see how my plans and priorities have

The Significance of God's Name: The One That Breaks Open The Way

Image
As a Christian, one way to understand the essence of God is through His name. When I came across Micah 2:13, I was intrigued by the depiction of God as the One who breaks open the way. This verse has become one of my favourites, and I'd love to share my thoughts.    According to Micah, God is the One who shatters barriers and paves the way for His people. When I read this, two words stuck with me. The first word is "break," and the Hebrew word for "break" is "Shabar." Micah's portrayal of God as the 'Shabar' refers to Him as the One who breaks through any obstacle in our way. He not only breaks through, he Shabars – breaks, crushes, shatters – every impossible situation that stands in the way of us fulfilling his plans for our lives.    The second word that stands out for me is more of a phrase, "opens the way." God is referred to as our way maker, which means He will always create a path for us despite when one doesn't exist.

The Season's Miracle

Once, there was gloom, But now comes honour. The people walking in darkness, have seen a great light. They have increased, and their Joy, too. Because the yoke that burdens them, is shattered. For unto us, a child is born. He is both human and divine. The Royal bearer of Peace for all. It is the Miracle of Christmas. - Based on Isaiah 9:1-7
