The best person to pray over your soul is you. How often do you pray for yourself? How often do you pour out your heart to God, unashamed? You don't need to cover up anything. He already knows everything about you. Every good and evil deed. He knows that which you have been struggling with. He knows that secret thing that you've been doing for a long time. I remember my co-worker had asked me to pray for her. I suppose she thought that because I was a Christian God would hear me and not her, but that isn't so. Her prayer is just as effective as mine. We're all sinners saved by grace and God knows our hearts. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. Psalm 51:17.
Whither shall I go from thy spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend into heaven, thou art there: If I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, And thy right hand shall hold me. If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; Even the night shall be light about me. Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; But the night shineth as the day: The darkness and the light are both alike to thee. For thou hast possessed my reins: Thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: Marvellous are thy works; And that my soul knoweth right well. Psalm 139:7-14
“Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”Philippians 4:5-7
In the dungeon of the night
I lay my wretched soul,
Bare before its maker, unshamed
Revealing all the deeds I've done
In spirit and flesh
Pleading his mercies
For before His eyes
There is no condemnation
And my darkest secrets
Are as daylight.

“Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not, and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.” ― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow I keep them laughing, They all think that I'm doing okay, So many wished for the life of me, For the face behind my profile picture isn't what they see, Smiley emojis that hide my frown, But when I'm off social media my world comes tumbling down, You see, having many followers doesn't mean I'm not alone, In the real world, I have struggles of my own. Likes, comments, thousands of shares, I wish I knew someone that truly cares, Social media is just a highlight reel , These happy moments are only a cover-up of what I try to conceal, Of all the persons I make happy, I'm the one who is sad, There isn't one to make me glad, Yes, Influencers have their insecurities too and, They're real people like the rest of you! “Maybe we all have darkness inside of us and some of us are better at dealing with it than others.”

Have you ever examined the persons in your life ? What purpose do they serve? Do they make your life better? Are you happier with or without them? Do they mean you well? Do they have your back? Can you honestly say that you trust them? Do they love you or only what you can do for them? If you have nothing tomorrow, will they still be around? These are some deep questions to think about. You should always be open and brutally honest about the persons you allow into your life. Let alone, your mental and physical space. Don't ever take that for granted. In the end, everyone who enters your life is either a blessing or a curse. Whether they are family, friends, or strangers. Be careful who you choose to hold on to. Many of the people that you come across aren't meant to stay in your life, indefinitely and you will encounter problems if you extend their stay. You should never prioritize someone who sees you as an option. You should never lo
Are you among those that are easily flustered by other people's lifestyle? Guess what, this won't do you any good. In the end, you're the one who is losing your focus, energy, and peace of mind! People will live and do as they please! No, you can't control people's behavior, but you can control how you respond. It's time to declutter your mind of all the things that are of no concern to you. Below are seven things you should never stress about when it comes on to other people. “ Instead of worrying about what you cannot control, shift your energy to what you can create.” ― Roy T. Bennett 1. Other people's opinions about you. Stop allowing other people's opinions to rent a space in your head. Stop reducing yourself to other people's perceptions of you. Stop defining yourself with their vocabulary. Stop squeezing yourself into their myopic version of you. No one knows you better than you do. What others think about you is their business and not you
There may be times when you feel as though you are inadequate, or you just don't fit into the world's definition of who or what they say you should be. Guess what, you don't need to fit in. You are enough , you don't need to change yourself to make someone else feel better. You were beautifully designed. Fearfully and wonderfully made. You are one rare gem, throughout the world, there is no one else like you. You are special, you are unique, you are no mistake. Always be yourself for no one else will ever come close to fulfilling your role. 1. “Don’t sacrifice yourself too much, because if you sacrifice too much there’s nothing else you can give and nobody will care for you.” ― Karl Lagerfeld 2.“Dare to love yourself as if you were a rainbow with gold at both ends.” ― Author-Poet Aberjhani, 3. “One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself.” ― Shannon L. Alder 4. “how you love yourself is how you teach oth
Betrayal pricked my heart And left an arrow there Although I could breathe I'd prefer my heart stone-dead To those who hurt me To those I fear would To those, I might take avenge But this did me no justice For my last state Became worse than the first So, I gave my wounded heart wings Whither shall we go my love Till seventy times seven.

Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother who sins against me? Up to seven times?”Jesus answered, “I tell you, not just seven times, but seventy-seven times! Matthew 18:22. “The weak can never forgive.

First dates can be nerve-wracking at times. What should I say? Hope I don't mess up. Hope I make a good impression. What should I wear? Do I look good? And the whole nine yards. While your first date doesn't have to be scripted. You also don't want to sit there and just stare into space. You want to break the ice and start up a conversation. There are many who have flunked in this area and have ended their chances of dating any further at the first date. This is an opportunity for you to know each other a little better. Don't be selfish talking about yourself the whole time. Give the other party a chance to share a little about themselves and show interest in what they are saying. This is not the time to flaunt your achievements, vocabulary, or which big names you are friends with. It isn't time to spill your guts either. You don't have to go about confessing all your deeds and whatnot. You don't know who you are talking to. I have compiled five reasonabl
The future is unpredictable, everything can change in a split second. We are here today, gone the same. We plan, we hope, and expect, we look forward to what will come, both good and bad. Yet, no one knows exactly what the future will bring, we can only prepare for the best and expect the worst. God has given mankind wisdom, how to prepare for the future. All hope is never lost, amidst all the tragedies that we have encountered in our lives, there’s a certainty that things will never be the same and change will happen, whether good or bad. Change impacts every aspect of our lives, including our finances. Below are five reasons you should be generating a side income as a low or average income earner.

Beauty is more than what meets the naked eye. It goes far beyond the exterior. It isn't so much about having a beautiful image but more so a beautiful spirit. Always be your kind of beauty inside and out. Let the world adjust its standards. Don't ever reduce or belittle yourself to fit into its definition of beauty. Be bold, be fierce, be a beautiful soul within and without! Beauty Where your words are gently spoken, Where kindness is smothered in love, Where I'm free to be, Who I was created to be, Without compromise, Without apology, Without any addition, Or subtraction from me, Where my color, class, and creed have no meaning, Where no words of ridicule or expression, Can scar this structure I call my body, There in your heart, Is a place called, Beauty.
