Hey people,it is one chilly Sunday but it is the day we all go to church or others stay at home listening to gospel and some watch live sermons on television.Well,today I was watching Joel Osteen’s live sermon and I must say it was a blessing to me because he talked about the current situation am going through and it has given me fulfillment and relief.Today our topic is called chain breaking that is what Joel Osteen talked about,so I am gonna write what I learnt and understood and also some of my tips too.
Firstly,what is chain breaking?This is whereby you start releasing all the yorks in your life,you let go of all the burdens in your life and you have freedom of perspect and get rid of the bound perspect.We always keep our yorks thinking it is normal but it aint normal.God created us to be happy,peaceful and fulfilled.He did not bring you into this world so as to undergo trauma,depression,guilt,divorce,hate,bullying and many more burdens.He has a purpose for you and no matter what anyone says or does that purpose has to be fulfilled.Some things are beyond our control and that is why we turn to God to give us fulfillment and hope.You need to have faith and patience for what God has in store for you is more wonderful and precious.All those downfalls you have been through will be turned into blessings and unending success.
Secondly,you need to forgive and forget.Forgiveness is the hardest thing to do especially if you had placed this person at a higher bar in your life.Be it heartbreak,betrayal,disloyalty,back stabbing and many more,you need to forgive and forget.Forgiving that person does not mean you let them in into your life again,no,you are just releasing that bitterness in you.Today I reflected on my life while listening to the sermon and said,it is time for me to forgive all those who wronged me in one way or the other and for those who I wronged too I believe they will see I have moved on from that anger and bitterness.There is nothing as painful as trusting someone with your flaws and then they use it as your weakness.It is so wrong and mean.No one is perfect,we are all sinners before God and that is why we all pray to Him to give us comfort and inner peace.Crying does not mean you are weak, but it helps us release that pain and it makes you calm.Cry it all out and release the pain and bitterness.
Thirdly,starting a new chapter,you need to learn that in life,cornerstones and challenges will always be there but how you react to it is what matters.I decided that proving myself to people and trying to make people be reasonable and rational is not my work but theirs.No one controls your life but yourself.God has given us the necessary resources and as the ruler of your life,you need to make appropriate decisions and take rational actions.Do not make decisions while you are bitter or angry.It will cost you alot of things afterwards.If you tell someone something and they do not see its essence,leave that person alone.How they react to it is none of your business but making yourself better and setting your priorities right is your business.Let the Holy Spirit be your guide.
Fourthly,God is your source of strength and hope and everything.No human being can do the things God has done for you.Human is to error.Even your own blood can judge and criticize you but God will receive you with open arms.For He is merciful and kind.He has the final say and if He says he has a purpose and plan for you,accept it.If you do your part,God will do His.Let no one make you feel lesser of a person.He or she has no power of determining your fate.God is the beginning and end and there is no one like Him.He will stand with you during the storm and also during the sunshine,so just be grateful and always seek Him because he never fails.
Fifthly,take responsibility,whatever you do always know that you are responsible of the aftermath.Do not look at the speck of someones eye and forget about the log in your own eye.Learn to discover your flaws and note that you cannot have inner peace if you do not consider other people’s feelings.Whether one is rich or poor,healthy or sick,strong or weak,respect is a two way traffic.Do unto others what you expect them to do unto you.A faithful friend is a strong defence,and whoever has found one has found a treasure because in this era having that one friend who will stand by you at all costs is not easy.Friendship is not about competing or throwing shades,it is about building each other up and accepting each other.You need to know each others weaknesses and protect each other.Never judge one another.You do not know why that person did what he or she did and you have not walked in his or her shoes so why lament and judge and what will you gain from it?Will it make you a hero?Will it make you earn more money or score higher grades?Always ask yourself these questions before hurting and tarnishing someones reputation.
Sixthly,people always change,you need to know that binadamu ni kinyonga na hakuna ambaye atakupenda unavyojipenda.You need to stop seeking consolence from people and seeking apathy and sympathy.Personally,I used to do that only when I underwent a serious downfall and discovered that I have been wasting myself and making irrational decisions.I discovered that people only stand by you when they need something from you but once that is done,they dissolve like sugar in water.You need to take this downfalls positively and learn from your mistakes.Throwing shades at each other will not help but will cause more anguish and pain .Keep in mind not everyone views life as you do.We all come from different backgrounds and we were all brought up differently,so do not expect people to be like you,talk like you and reason like you.
Lastly,be consistent,consistency is the key to your breakthrough.Always be firm and stable,it is not easy but you need to do that.Some things in life happen for a reason and at a season.You may say,why am I undergoing all these problems?why are they always judging me and insulting me?why am I not happy like so and so?Listen up,never blame yourself for the wrongs of others and never explain your deeds to anyone.Never compare your journey with someone else.Just be you and do you and love you.No one leads your ride other than you.
Have a beautiful afternoon and I leave you with these quotes,silence is the key and it says alot more than you think.Disability and weakness is not inability.Be inspired before you expire.Be a living testimony !
