UNANSWERED QUESTS…

A young innocent girl gets raped on her way back home from school. A girl strives tirelessly to impress but constantly gets sexually, emotionally and phsycologically abused to a point of mental anormally, by the man who shouldbe her security- her own father! A beautiful teenage girl with an obviously bright future becomes the scape-goat of financial instability in the home, and is sold for a few bucks to traffickers. A retired middle-aged man who spends his life savings to see his only son through school, suddenly gets the news of his son’s murder in his last month of University education. A man secures a loan for a business that goes completely down the drain, leaving him neck-dip in debt and with no where to turn . A young man, despite his academic determination and resilent efforts to pay his fees, justcan’t graduate from the University after spending 7years on a 4year course. A woman gives birth to a son after 16years of waiting and has him kid napped from Pre-school and eventually killed for rituals, a young girl has her entire family wiped out in a terrible terrorist attack that makesher life a ‘tragedy’, and as if forcing herself to have to stare at the familiy photograph on her room wall and still find courage to’face life’ isn’t enough, she wakes one morning to realise she has cervical cancer!
…. At some point in life, we get both sides of our ropes burning, so much that sucide seems like the best option. We think “I’m done with all of this…guess it’s time to quit!”. Some of us can possibly relate with a few of these instances. But, believe me, no matter your situation, there are people who have had it worse but still got it right!
You can too!
SUCIDE IS NOT AN OPTION! Drugs won’t help, serial sex won’t, neither would masturbation or alcohol. These would only get things worse! IF GOD CAN DO ANYTHING FOR ANYBODY, HE CAN DO SOMETHING FOR YOU! Hand the wheels of the over to HIM! He’ll either give you a fresh start or a refreshed continuation, making something beautiful from that ugly situation (with your best intrest at heart)! We’ll always have unanswered questions, don’t let the one(s) youhave now stop you from trusting GOD! YOU’RE NOT ALONE IN THIS! Believe me, YOU’RE NOT FORGOTTEN! You don’t have to have it all figured out. You either ‘gullibly’ trust GOD or ‘perfectly’ gocrazy. TRUST HIM! HE knew that you were going to be in that messyou’re in right now even before it came along, and has arranged to get you RESTORED! HE’S PREPARED TO GIVE YOU DOUBLE FOR YOUR TROUBLE!
Enjoy!

‘PERMISSIVE’ LAZINESS

When we allow GOD’s grace (GOD’s unmerited favour borne out of HIS geniune love for us) to take its full cause in us,
#the only effort we put into life is our continued willingness to completely follow HIS lead
(infact, “HE works in us to will, andto do [right]”. So, we can say our efforts are actually completely at rest, as even our willingness to follow is triggered by HIM!),
#our lives bring HIM pleasure and we thereby fufil HIS purpose for creating us, with an assurance of this, we can derive another assurance just as pleasing; we can be sure of reaching our ultimate destiny-Heaven, ­ and reigning with HIM.
#even during our “follow trip” here on earth, HIS glory’d radiate in, on, through and around us as our thoughts(will) and actions(do)HE makes right as we trust, follow and obey HIS instructions and promptings, even the rather ‘little’ones like “Don’t you think you should be reading now”, “Go help your mum in the kitchen”, “It’s been three days since we really communed last, you should make out sometime to pray!”, thereby, providing a serene environment in us for HIS glory to shine through and true!
**My favourite part of it all, is that I get to have all of this for literally doing nothing!
The rest of the world can continue toiling, I think it’s time I retired, it’s time I allowed GOD’s grace do the toiling for me (and of course, in me).
In the end, just like Daniel, I’d be ten times better off! I bet you won’t mind coming along with me for this. By the way, I’d love to have partners.
**I think I should add this.
We always love to believe that GOD’s glory shinning through us means we’d turn out to become some world-famous ‘stinkingly’ rich fellow. Well, that would only be a part of the deal for you if you(being a tool in GOD’s hands) require the fame and vast wealth to effectively perform your function(s) in HIS ‘workshop’.
Let’s look at it this way. In a carpenter’s workshop we have many different tools, designed as per their functions. Imagine if every tool were like the saw(beingone of the most popular); they all had nothing but thin zig-zag blades and a (wooden) handle. Won’t that render the nail useless? It would also be cutting through wood planks instead of binding them together! What about the hammer? It would impair the nails, cutting through them rather than driving them into wood, and probably also destroy itself while trying to drive in nails. Not every tool needs a blade and a wooden handle, but everyone of them is equiped perfectly to perform its function(s).
GOD’s grace doesn’t promise you fame. But promises you an admirable identity. It doesn’t promise you vast wealth, but it does promise you prosperity and comfort. It doesn’t promise you world appreciation and recognition, but an excellent life in all areas!
If we all go to ‘the ends of the earth’, who would cater for the other parts?
You don’t have to be the richest or most influencial man/woman to be ‘great’. If you’d stay wherever GOD puts you (taking you as a nail for example), you’d realise you’re just as relevant as if you were that world-famous person (Saw) you’d have desired to be.
Morever if we’d put it to heart that ‘greatness’ (in whatever way we may see it) is only a means to further please GOD and not and end in itself, we won’t be stuck onbecoming ‘stinkingly’ rich or famous. With this in mind, if the vast wealth, fame and the likes end up coming, we know it’s more of an investment than profit, and if it doesn’t, we’d be sure we need just as much wealth, comfort and fame as we have to function perfectly. We’d be sure HE’s given us just as much as we have to be relevant to HIM, ourselves and the rest of the world. We’d still be content with our lives.
GOD bless you!

Wildly Improbable Goals 2013

Live to Write - Write to Live

Last year I wrote about some Wildly Improbable Goals here on Write To Live-Live To Write, and I’m here to do it again.

Remember, Wildly Improbable Goals are the goals you set that seem just about impossible—the ones that get you scared and excited all at the same time every time you think about them.

Wildly Improbable Goals are not the run-of-the-mill goals we set every year. They are not about going back to the gym, eating better, or even writing every day. They are about dreams and possibilities and what-if-I-could-actually-pull-it-off?

It takes courage to articulate your WIGs, to say them out loud, to write them down. But the truth is, you know what they are.  Or, some part of you knows.

Sometimes I ask my clients, “What are you ready to know about…?” (…your life, …yourself, …your business?)

I’ve never had a client who couldn’t answer a question like…

Why we write – a novel answer

Truely, we live to write and write to live!

Live to Write - Write to Live

james deanDo you know why you write?

Not the tactical, logical, left-brain reason; but the deep down, can’t-ignore-this-thing, totally irrational reason.

Do you?

Perhaps you don’t need to know why you write. Maybe you are content to take direction from your muse without questioning her motives. You may find exploration of the driving forces behind your work irrelevant.

That’s your prerogative, BUT …

If you unearth the underlying energy that fuels your need to put words down, you can harness that power to infuse your writing with more passion and purpose. Understanding why you are compelled to pick up a pen or set your fingers racing across the keyboard can bring you a higher level of clarity and confidence. It can help you define and prioritize your writing. It can give you direction.

I have often wondered about the “why” behind my own urge to write. I’ve constructed several hypotheses…
