THEFEMININECHEST: ECHOES OF INSPIRATIONS

NEW BEGINNINGS

What if you woke up and realized that all the dreams you ever had aren't God's plan for your life? What if you hear God telling you to leave everything you've ever known and had behind and start afresh like He did to Abraham?
I personally don't even have the answers to the above questions, I don't even know what I'll do. And that is the problem.
But you know the funny thing? It has already happened to us several times. Many times we've had to let go off some dreams and goals we felt we needed to work towards but in the end, we realized that, that just wasn't it.
No, doubt. It's very difficult for us to embrace new beginnings because of the fear of the unknown.

Mary was a maiden who had her own plans and hopes that every maiden at her time will have. To serve God according to how she had been taught and to get married and live happily ever after but what happened? She woke up one day to realize that her's was a different life, she had been set apart for a different goal of bringing forth and nurturing a saviour. Did she embrace her new beginning? Yes she did!

Paul was a very vibrant young man who stood firmly for what he believed in. His ultimate goal was equal to Adolf Hitler's, to destroy the people he felt were enemies because they stood for different beliefs and values. He put all his energy into reaching his goal until God arrested him on his way to Damascus to accomplish one of his set targets.
On that road, a new goal was given to him and he had no choice than to embrace it.

What about Jesus's disciples? There were fishermen whose dream and goal was to fish only for fish for as long as they lived, until Jesus came and said, hey that ain't the goal, you've got to fish for men for my kingdom.
The tax collectors whose aims were to store up treasures for themselves but Jesus gave them a new goal of feeding the hungry. Amazing! Isn't it? These people embraced their new beginnings inspite of the uncertainties it came with and do you know what did the trick for them? Complete trust in the Lord!

Yes! Complete trust. We cannot embrace new beginnings without trusting in the one who has promised in Proverbs 3:5-6
       "Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
        in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight."

Enjoy the rest of your week lovely ones

#TheReminder: GO GET A COPY

Hey there,
I cannot remember the last time I shared a blog post. It has been a great while. I have been away and doing nothing really except reading so much, school and getting into facebook squabbles(lol). But it is all over now. Time to get back to things that really matter. Aye!

So here is how we are going to start. Here is how we are coming back. As God willed it, my maiden book is almost done and it is titled THE REMINDER. I had a good friend help with the editing and here is a review he wrote. I'd like for you to read it and get to know a little about this book. In the meantime, till i start writing again.


"The book you are about to pay for has a hundred and thirteen pages besides the forward and introduction. It contains a collection of poems, memoirs and narratives from several sources all crafted to tell an elaborate story that is supposed to be a reminder that will strike you to respond to the things we so easily ignore.
In this book, The Reminder, you will find you…

#EchoesOfInspiration: GOD IS A TAXI DRIVER

Last night I met God. He was just getting off the phone with someone.
"in an hour's time" He said roughly, yet calmly, then he ended the call. I bet it was a prayer he was answering. (Thinking about it, that one hour he said, could mean one year oo)

When I saw him. I just knew he was the one I'd go with. He laughed a lot and for some reasons, I was drawn to him.
So after boo negotiated the fare,  I took my good bye kiss which he always, carefully plants on my forehead in the same way you put an egg down.
"Keep the jacket" he said smiling as I opened the door lazily and sat at the back seat

After sitting, I took a moment to scan the seat, as my ears caught the sound of a favorite gospel song playing and I'd never seen a taxi so dirty like the one I sat in.
"Oh what happened here?" I asked calmly though with displeasure.
"Oh a woman I just dropped off" he replied shrugging his shoulders like he really wasn't bothered about it, no, …

WHY BREAKING YOUR VIRGINITY IS PAINFUL

Bonsoir!

I guess you had an amazing weekend. I'm wondering why nobody thanks God for Mondays. I mean, there's nothing like TGIM as there is TGIF... Lol

Everyone knows that a woman's first sex is painful, breaking her virginity is paainful! But do you know why it's painful?

When we buy a "tear rubber" product, what do we do to them in order to use it? As the name suggests, we tear the rubber!

Imagine you were the rubber being torn.. Ouch!
Breaking your virginity is painful because as a virgin, you're a "tear rubber" product. Your hymen that is attached to you happens to be the rubber that gets torn and voila! Sex is sweet afterwards.

Wondering what I'm driving at?? It's simple! START UPS! Start ups are a painful experience from the beginning. You'll be wondering why you're struggling to learn that new skill, why you're suffering to start up that business, why you're struggling to adapt to your new work or school schedule, …
