Wednesday Word!

bible1

 Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray.

Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down.

It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life

Philippians 4:6-7

The Message Bible translation

Hating Me into Loving Me???

1157586_orig

Him: Sit.List all the things you dont like about yourself

Me (scribbling fast and furiously): Uhm, so that we are not here for the next three months, can you give me a limit? Do you mean things I hate about myself, or things I really dont like about myself, or things….

Him: Let’s just limit it To things that if you could change, you would like yourself a bit more

Me (I still havent come up for air since I started scribbling): Should I only mention things i do at work, or at home, or when I’m in company…

Him:I think we should limit it to the first ten things you can think about.

Me (Looking u dejectedly): Just ten? I’m already on number thirteen. And I got a whoole lot more to…

Him: Thirteen is fine.(He stretched out his hands and snatched the list from my grasping fingers)

Dang. I just thought about number 14. I hate that I have just written all this stuff about myself that is only going to cause this man to look down on me even more than he does already.

Why do I do this to myself. Why?

He slides me another sheet of paper

Him: Now I want you to write ten things you like about yourself

Me: Umm… I have to think…

Him: How do you do it? Go through life, being your own worst critic and disbeliever

Me: It’s not like I don’t love myself. It’s just that I need a little more tweaking…

Him: Tweaking, for what purpose?

Me: So that I’ll be better of course

Him: Better for what purpose?

Me: So that I’ll be able to achieve more

Him: Achieve more for what purpose?

Me: So that I’ll be more at par with others of course

Him: And why do you want to be at par with others?

Me: I guess… so that I’ll love me more

Him: It seems pretty obvious you cant hate yourself into loving yourself

Me: I guess… so  I’m stuck with just hating myself, huh?

Him: You can cut all the prerequisites and just love yourself. Now. This minute

Me: How?

Him: Everytime life asks you what you would change about you, first start with who would not exchange you for the world

Me: Will it work?

Him: There’s only one way to find out. You may go now. 

Me (leaving the room)

Him: Oh. And by the way. Number 12. I love number 12. It makes you different. And number 2. And especially number 4…

God told them, “I’ve never quit loving you and never will. Expect love, love, and more love!

Jeremiah 31: 3b

I Choose…

Immediately I typed out these words, the one thing that readily came to mind was ‘Choosing a life partner’ or ‘voting in the President of  country’. Lol. It would seem those are the  major times I know we really use the word ‘CHOOSE’ over words like ‘decided’ and ‘wanted to’…

Anyway. This is not about choosing a life partner.

But we should talk about it sometime.

Back to my topic. Focus.

How many of us watched the movie ‘Devil wears Prada’? (Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, the Mentalist guy, that fab guy that was also in The Hunger Games whose name I never manage to remember…)

Anyway, I’ll take you to my favorite scene. The one where the  ‘dorky’ Anne Hathaway character snickers condescendingly at the ‘shallow’ fashion people when they hold up two really similar looking belts and ponder on which one to choose from. Ponder on it like they were about to find the cure to cancer. Continue reading I Choose…

The DASH 2016 Charities… one last look

We had 10 awesome and worthy causes this year.

We absolutely believe in all these causes and we hope we made you take a second look at and appreciate these awesome charities and foundations who are making Nigeria truly great. And making Jesus proud.

This is just to take a last look this year at all our DASH 2016 charities. It was awesome working with them.

We will definitely miss them.
