On Your Marks…

Halo there!…How have you been?I MUST apologise first and foremost for not posting on Tuesday as custom.Sometimes a day or two of reflection and reconnecting with God does help a great deal.

Guess what…

During this short break,I just found out that I could do things I thought were out of my reach or should I say beyond me?…Lesson learnt?…of course!

Do not limit yourself. God has put in you so much potential,you cannot afford to be complacent. Paul in Philippians 4:13 boldly declared, “I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength”… You feel inadequate and unworthy?…News flash!…In Gods’ eyes you are treasured and loved.You are the Apple of His eye and through Him you can do all things.Amen!

 stretch beyond your limit 

Are you a professional in your field?…That’s fantastic!The Bible says in 2Timothy 2:15,  “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth”… As a minister of the gospel,an artist,a Doctor,a nurse,a technician,a plumber, a writer…Whatever profession you are in,do your very best and keep studying.Each and every single day something new comes up in your field…Be on the know,stay fresh and guess what you won’t need to be ashamed.😉
Other than our profession,something has been deposited in each of us by our Creator,God…A GIFT(S).What’s your gift(s)?Are you using it/them?The Parable of the talents paints a very clear picture of what this is about.The servant who was given One talent did the exact opposite of what was expected of him…he buried his talent. His master was not impressed and so he recalled the one talent he had and gave it to the one who had the most talents(ten).Why?Because he put the ten into good use!…That reminds me…

Do not despise your days of small beginnings. You might not be on the Google Search Engine or on that huge stage acting or singing but at whatever point you find yourself… Put your talent to good use.You will have to account for it before The Master.The gifts and callings of God are irrevocable (Romans 11:29).They are with us for good.Our duty is to work on them for the glory of God.

There is always a starting point.Bill Gates,Steve Jobs,Henry Ford,Mark Zuckerberg and many more can attest to this.They did not have it all together at the beginning of their journey to changing the world but that did not deter them from starting and to date their impact is felt across the globe.

Strap your shoes on…

It’s time

Paul says,

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run but only one gets the prize?Run in such a way as to get the prize.Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training.They do it to get a crown that will not last;but we do it to get a crown that will last for ever.                 1 Corinthians 9:24

Three things stand out from the above scripture. When you start…

  • Be excellent(run in such a way as to get the prize)
  • Practice consistently(strict training)
  • Let your focus be eternity(we do it to get a crown that will last forever)

On your marks…get set…Go!…

All the best!😉
