Seasons Reminder (2.0)

A current season only reminds us that another season will come. Snow time only reminds us that the Spring will come and when the Springs finally arrives, we know that the summer is in the corner.

Seasons Reminder

The rain only reminds us that the flowers will soon sprout. And the hard soil reminds us that we should wait a little more and the rain will soften the hard crust.
It is appropriate that a farmer who has spent the early Spring planting to expect harvesting in the Fall.
A hardworking student gets success. Diligent entrepreneurs experience business growth and profit. A loving husband enjoys his marital home, and a caring wife wins the love of his lover.
The present problems and challenges of life are just a reminder that the glorious season will come, and we will smile again.
Weeping endures only for a moment, but joy comes in the morning.
Challenges are just a reminder that we can patiently find the solution that makes for a better living.
Challenges are a season, and it will pass. When you have the desired results, and the solutions are in your hands, your season of rejoicing is here.

How to turn your exhausted life into an excited life 5.0

When there is no one to encourage you in your challenges, you have to inspire yourself.

When there is no one around to help or to console, and everyone abandons you, encourage yourself. When others let you down, you should not let yourself down. Take these steps in times of crisis. Do not let your guard down. Be strong and courageous. 

Shake off fear and hopelessness. Develop a strong-willed mind and a sound Spirit. In a short time, you will come out as a victor.

As I conclude this series, I would like to remind us of all the lessons– that you can refresh your old memories that bring sweet feelings. Although this seems simple, you have to recollect all of the good feelings you had in the past.

Those who wait on God receive strength and power. You can come to God to obtain this strength that you will need in times of weakness.

God’s promises are unbroken. They will surely come to pass. He is not a man that lies or a man that cannot hold unto his word and fulfill it.

Hope does not give up because there is an assurance that God can do what He says. There is no failure with God.

Seek counsel! At the moment, you feel downcast and weary. You need help that is reliable and able to lift you from your lowly state. There are times you cannot do it all alone, and an extra hand is all you need to be on your two toes.

Do not give up on yourself. If you can breathe, you can live again.

How to turn your exhausted life into an excited life 4.0

In my previous posts, I discussed sweet old memories, waiting on God to re-energized your dampened spirit and Hope, which is an expectation and assurance in God’s faithfulness that what He promises will happen or come to pass.

Today, I am introducing another recipe for the revitalization of your exhausting life. 

Seek counsel! At the moment, you feel downcast and weary. You need help that is reliable and able to lift you from your lowly state. There are times you cannot do it all alone, and an extra hand is all you need to be on your two toes.

Seek counsel. Shun pride and get help. Swallow your ego. Do all you can to get to your feet again. You cannot allow your weary life to go down the drain. 

Many will fall, weary, and tired in this life. Many fagged out and exhausted will give up while those who are wise will seek counsel and gain understanding.

In a race, all athletes run to win the prize, but only one gets the winning prize. Acquire wisdom and seek the expert who knows the strategies for winning a race. Without counsel, failure is inevitable.

You cannot help yourself when you are weak or falling. You need help when you stumble or fail. Mistakes are not final, but a smart person will learn from the mistakes, and a wise person will go to the elderly to gain wisdom.

 Also, it is good to attend to instructions and words of wisdom, and avoid making the same mistakes again and again.

You do not have to walk this life alone. With lots of provisions of vast experience people, you never should walk alone.

 

Without wise leadership, a nation falls; there is safety in having many advisers.

Fools think their own way is right, but the wise listen to others.

Get all the advice and instruction you can, so you will be wise the rest of your life.

Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers.

Carrier of limitless power

As a Christian, you’re a carrier of unbelievable, limitless power. The embodiment of the Trinity resides inside of you. The glory of God surrounds you. The God-head makes its home inside your heart.

You cannot be defeated because Jesus always wins. He wins every single battle.  If He is a winner, so you are! And Jesus can never lose!

This limitless power has an endless supply of resources that can never run out of stock. Remember, God owns the heavens and the earth. Everything is God, and everything belongs to Him.

He is power incarnate and fullness of eternity.

This limitless power a believer has is difficult to explain with words. There are no expressions good enough to describe the power of God that a Christian has at his disposal. 

It’s impossible to describe God fully. Therefore, it’s impossible to explain how much power a believer has. Unfortunately, many don’t know it and couldn’t use the resources at their disposal. Lots of people suffer from a lack of understanding of this truth. The weakest Christian is more powerful than any demon.

You’re a power carrier, and the power you carry is limitless. The moment you know this truth, you become free because the truth you know makes you free. Lack of this knowledge brings you destruction because anyone can perish for lack of knowledge.

Therefore, Rise! Lift your voice in victory. Rejoice and bask in God’s power and love that lives inside you.

You are victorious!

and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us,

Not yet time to rest

For the Christian, it is not yet time to rest or relax. You’re on a battlefield.

Typically, you have to place yourself in the same position our Lord Jesus was when He was on earth. He didn’t rest nor relax until He conquered death and sin.

Day and countless nights, He would rise to pray before anyone else to avoid unnecessary distractions. Christians must do the same to rise above wickedness and evil prevailing our environment.

The devil is a roaring wild animal looking for weaklings to destroy.

Rise! You have the battle to win, and you must win because the victory is already guaranteed.

Do not rest until it’s time to rest, and it’s not time yet!

Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you.

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

How to turn your exhausted life into an excited life 3.0

In my last two posts, I talked about how you can use your sweet old memories and waiting on God to re-energize your dampened spirit. Today, I am introducing another recipe for the revitalization of your exhausting life.

Hope is an expectation and assurance in God’s faithfulness that what He promises will happen or come to pass.

There is a general confusion between Faith and Hope, but the two are completely different. Hope is one of the greatest attributes. Without it, the bible says we are the most miserable people on earth.

When you think about God’s promises that they are true and that God can never lie, it increases confidence.

God’s promises are unbroken. They will surely come to pass. He is not a man that lies or a man that cannot hold unto his word and fulfill it.

So, when your soul is weary and tired, remember His promises. Remember He said that “I will never leave you nor forsake you” “Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you.”
 Hold unto these promises and repeat over and over until your spirit is confident in God’s ability to fulfill it.

Hope does not give up because there is an assurance that God can do what He says. There is no failure with God.

Take those words of God and practice them daily until it becomes part of you, and do not give them up because Hope says, “I believe God can do what He says He will do. He never fails, and He is not going to let me down. God is able!

Expect from God to help you, and He will perform it if you continue to hold unto His promises.

How to turn your exhausted life into an excited life 2.0

In the last post, I gave an illustration of how sweet old memories can wake up the sleeping giant in you and revitalize your passion. There is another way you can re-energize your spirit.

Those who wait on God receive strength and power. You can come to God to obtain this strength that you will need in times of weakness.

We may become faint and tired, but God never grows weary.
God’s wisdom is infinite or beyond infinite ( I mean you cannot imagine how smart God is), but man has little understanding.
God’s strength is limitless. He is never exhausted and does not get tired.

When your car is running out of gas, you quickly stop at the nearest station to refill.
It makes logical sense that, when you are tired and weary, you should run to God to be refilled and energized.

Talk to God about your exhaustion and ask Him for what you need to keep the passion. Remember, weaklings, are usually left out of the race.

How to turn your exhausted life into an excited life 1.0

There are several ways you can motivate and wake up the sleeping giant in you, but I have thoughtfully crafted this that I believe is useful for all times.
Refresh your old memories that bring sweet feelings. Although this seems simple, you have to recollect all of the good feelings you had in the past.

Old memories of your accomplishments, successes, and breakthroughs can ignite the fire and resurrect the passion you once had.

Such memories can be a successful pass of a graduate or any school examination, your first job, your first paycheck, etc. Such memories often trigger passion and strong desires that can motivate you and push you towards your goal.

If you have lost the desire to pray, remember how God answered your prayers in the past. Remember how you pray regularly and the results of the prayers. Remember how you were zealous for God. This may likely kindle the fire to wake you up from your slumber. 

Recollect your old memories and let them ignite the fire within you by waking up the sleeping giant.

Grace and help for all times

The grace that keeps you standing when you first believe can keep you standing during your crises and tough times. God’s grace is always the same and useful every time and for all situations.

Grace for all times

Remember how committed you were and how excited you were when you first believe. Tap into that same help that grace offers. All you need to gain victory is the same grace and help that was available for you. It was useful in the past; it is very useful now.


He said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” This promise alone can stir the courage and strength you need to keep going.
Today is more challenging than before, and you need the grace to live each day.
Do not lose your confidence in God.
“So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you!”

Stay Connected to Your Calling

Stay connected to your calling. Today, in this world we live in, it is easy to lose hope and faint. It is even easier to get deceived with lies. In the quest for searching for the truth, many lose their true calling. It is easy to lose hope in the face of despair, especially when you have lost a dear person or a thing. It is easy to become gullible if you do not have a strong and firm grip on the truth.

Stay connected to God

Jesus Christ said that because sin shall abound, many people’s love for God will grow cold.
Amidst all these possibilities listed above and more, you can stay connected to God and your true calling by holding on to the truth that kept you till the moment you have your first doubt. The same faith that keeps you before can keep you going.
In a simple word, do not give up on your calling.
Stay strong in the faith you once believe and do not let the troubles of this life discourage you.
Faithful is He who saved you, and He can save you to the end if you do not give up. Staying connected to Him will let you appreciate that God will not leave you; neither will He forsake you in your time of need.
