Personal Developement


Yesterday was a pretty cool day. Better still it was an awesome weekend. I had the time of my life, am wishing every weekend would be this awesome. The ambiance, the people, the events etc. Everything was great

So this morning… I will look back at it and laugh so hard, but not today.

Do i start with what got me through this morning or do i go straight to the story telling??  Hmm??

So i woke up extremely early, very enthusiastic about today. positive, Hopeful, and everything nice. Got to showering, dressed up until i found something missing… As silly as this may sound, bear with me…typical lady… My jacket! It was meant to complement my outfit.

Do you have any idea what a lady has to go through before we get the “days” outfit? We put everything into thought, what shoes go with what jeans, what earrings match the top we wearing etc. stuff like that. So when one thing goes missing you have to start allover again. This in turn takes a lot of time.

My little sister, in high school, has the habit of wearing my clothes, without my permission. So today she decided to wear the jacket. Before i concluded it was her, i had to look for it in the house, from where I left it last night to everyone’s wardrobe. Time is gone already. Am running late, with nothing to wear and am sure there is traffic. I called her up and asked if she was wearing it, she says no. Its not the first time she has given me that answer then later confess. I called her a second time still no, she’s not wearing it. I decide to get my folks involved. My mum feels my pain.

Started causing. When I get so angry I cry if am not throwing things all over the place.

After cooling off, I wore another jacket that didn’t fit my preference. I stayed positive and wanted nothing to ruin my day or rather my week.

Am late, almost literally running to the stage. Fortunately there was no traffic. This bus driver  inconvenienced us by dropping us off at the wrong stage. So now i had to get another bus to get me into town. Got into town, p.s payed extra fare. I had to get another bus to westlands, at least this one didn’t delay me. Now if the day couldn’t get any worse my line gets disconnected. I can’t make phone calls, I haven’t paid my bill. REALLY??!!

I get to the office and the meeting has already started. Why am I late? Was almost in tears, but if am not wrong I must have shed a few on the way.

What got me through the harsh morning? Sundays lessons from the service and bible study. What I learnt?

God tests you in ways He knows you can handle, but you don’t know that yet. FOUNDATION, ROOTS! What is my foundation? If your foundation is on sand then when every trial comes and temptations or challenges, you will surely fall…(Wind and storms) If your foundation is on rock, (Christ) then you will surely stand through every storm. Christ is the firm ground that gets us through everything. Whether under pressure, stressed, confused, just at your downfall then He will keep you going.

He who is in us is greater than he who is in the world. So if we believe that we have the power in us, from God, then we are unstoppable.  When everything was going wrong I called on Him and I felt more assured that He will get me through, and for sure He did. He says that in all situations give thanks. He knows why everything happened the way it did. Every time was pushed to the wall and was breaking down, He kept me sane.

GOD thank you for every instance this morning and thank you for getting me through it all, and getting me to work. I love you and I bless your name.
