The three monsters: Fear, Doubt and Despondency.

#fear#

Talk about fear. At some point, all of us have had it.

It’s not the problem of fear. It’s the problem of not overcoming fear. 

Fear is a disease. It can progress into a monster called coward.

Fear can make someone miss an opportunity. Fear causes retreat and procrastination; a state of delay to take action. Fear is for the coward.

Because of fear, many talents have ended up in the graves. Graves are the best hub ever of wealth that was not brought into use by those deceased.

When you fear, you invite a state of hopelessness and complexity in seeing the success side of a story. You feel comfortable not to try anything; and this is usually the opposite of any expectation under normal circumstances. 

Even while on smooth road, fear makes you see a rough road.

#Doubt#

Whenever you doubt whether you can do something or not, then be sure that you can’t.

Never and never will you succeed if you are full of doubt. 

DOUBT kicks you OUT of the game.

Because of doubt, you sink in an ocean even when the waves are calm.

Doubt brings your parachute down in an unexplainable manner. You fall with a thud!

Instead of doubt, develop confidence. Think of possibility instead of impossibility. 

#Despondency#

In any hopeless situation, learn to hold on positive thoughts. 

You lose focus when you become despondent. You face doom. You create room for weird resolutions.

Despondency is despair, a state of lawlessness on what best decision to hold on during night times or dark moments so to say.

Despondency is a monster. It should not dominate your life at all. Live positively, think positively and face challenges positively.

Sometimes we fail to be strong during adversity. Right. Human nature attached to this fact. But remember God’s nature as well. The best practice we require in order to drive away these three monsters is to be able to choose God’s nature over human nature and especially in adversity.

Lightning can strike, a landslide can bury millions of us, an earthquake can rock buildings even when we are inside, fire can rage and raze over a hairy forest, locusts can locate a plantation and swarm through, a disease can wipe generations…….and much more.

That’s fine. It happens. But I believe it depends on our courage. I mean the courage to live life amid circumstances. The courage to sleep in bed with enough faith that we shall wake up alive the next day.

That’s life.

On Sunday. Hold me in your arms Lord.

# a song by Benard Chinua

Oh Lord my God, my savior,

You are my refuge, my cover.

My Lord is my power, and my tower.

My only arm and my wing.

Chorus

When tempests fall, HIM I call,

He flies down, holds me up, and I soar,

Below I see my enemies roar,

But in HIS arms I am safe, all in all.



Search me God, know me, 

Make me yours, just me.

Le me stay in your armpit, let me.

Le me be under your shadow, me.

Chorus.

Hold me in your arms Lord X 3

For with you, my life is spared.
Chinua…..

God bless everyone. Happy Sunday.

Relating well with God means wisdom.

God is supreme.

No question about that. He supersedes nature. He is powerful that no man can outwit HIM.

To question God is foolishness.

Absolutely.

A wise person prays, waits for God and appreciates what GOD does. Only a fool says God is a liar and that he doesn’t exist.

Wise people pray

To kneel and pray to God is wisdom, humility and a sign of honor to HIM.

The steps of a good man are guarded by the Lord.

When you hurt people, you hurt God as well.

God’s intention to mankind is reconciliation. He looked for ways of relating well with mankind through HIS Son Jesus Christ.

Wisdom is knowing God and doing what He wants. Wisdom is not despising God. It’s knowing and understanding that you are under authority and that you have no permission to operate on your own. Remember, he is the creator of heaven and earth. He created Man as well. 

Chinua…..

Keep calm, All is well.

#The art and tact of  problems#

When everything goes awry, as sometimes will,

Don’t become numb and dumb.

When you are shaken, don’t mind how you feel,

Develop faith, guard your heart, and don’t jump,

Into a decision, ill fated. Remember you can’t kill,

Your enemy lodging in your camp,

By hastening. Keep calm, all will be well.

The divine power, the unseen power,

Bails us, from the nails and the wiles, 

That problems and situations bring over.

When in darkness, and can’t see, all fails.

But remember, light takes over,

And suddenly darkness flees.

Keep calm. All is well. It’s over.
