Bold Step

By | Be Inspired | No Comments

Women are wonderfully made and powerfully equipped, but sometimes, limitations and excuses restrain many from achieving destiny in life. Excuses are one of the disguise devises of Satan to keep human below ability, achievement and destiny. Many have missed opportunities to move forward by giving excuses and procrastination.

The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 3 vs 1 “there is time and seasons for everything”; some fear to break out of their comfort zones because of fear of mistakes or failure; failure is never final, sometimes failure create platform for success; living in past experience and mistakes brings limitation to man’s progression. Many women are given great mission; remarkable abilities and skills; some wish to pursue a career, but yet, nothing is done about it.

Taking a bold step, seeking information, planning and taking actions is very important in breaking through. The words of God says in Habakkuk 2 vs 2-3 “And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry”.

There is always millions of reasons not to do something, but personal decision is required to breakthrough. Prayer and faith are very important keys, they help to sustain momentum in a most discouraging situation. (Hebrew 12 vs 2), but a vision needs to be defined, planned and executed no matter how small. Outgrow yesterday experience, don’t dwell long on old things; don’t let anyone discourage you, but only run your dreams with  positive minded people.

Samuel (1 Samuel 17:1-58) has many reasons to be discouraged, many excuses not to showcase potentials, even from situations around him, family members and friends, and therefore would have missed destiny; but he chose to speak out; move forward, use opportunity, execute potential, practised faith and won the battle.

I am a living testimony; I have also worked with hundreds of women that have passed through or passing through so much in life, but nothing is stopping them from reaching their goals because God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind because we do not by our own ability, but of divine assurance. May God grant you abundant grace and accomplishment as you take the bold step forward from now on.


Retired but not Tired

I am 67 years old; a retired Nurse and a devoted child of God.

I was privileged to attend one of the Women of Faith Foundation workshops in London, the workshop was very inspiring and powerful; I knew immediately I was destined to be there; I took note of every important information discussed and I made decision to follow through.

For the past few years, I have been planning to go back to Africa because I am now retired and only do few things in UK; but I always ask myself, “What will I be doing when I get there?” I am a very active person, I love to be with people, I hate to be idle, but definitely I cant take up official jobs again or sell things.

After some deliberations, I decided to book a session with women of faith foundation; that day, I knew immediately, all my worries are over. After that session, I was more than ready to go to Africa and start living a better, impact and peaceful life. I was assisted to make my desires and thoughts become reality.

Less than 1 year now in Nigeria, doing what I love doing; using my knowledge to support young mothers and Farmers in my community to live a healthier and better life; the group is getting bigger, I am getting stronger and my joy is priceless.

I can proudly say that “I am more fulfilled now than before”.

Going back to school

At the age of 62 I decided to go back to studying. I did Basic Computing; after I completed the course, I moved on to study Computing Application. Few months after that, I wished to start working in health sector, so I enrolled again for Health & Social care and I completed Level 3 with excellent grades.

Since then, I have been working as a Leave-in Carer with an elderly lady; I enjoyed been active and I believe age doesn’t matter in achievement.

I wish to do more and wish to study Law because I believe I am capable; I came again to the women group for help; I was assisted to enrol; after few weeks I was called for interview; at the venue, everyone was impressed with my test result and ability; HURRY! I got admission to study law at the University at age 67.

Leading with love to the right ways

The Lord said concerning Abraham in the Bible, Genesis 18 verse 19 “For I have chosen him, that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing righteousness and justice, so that the LORD may bring to Abraham what he has promised him”; we are descendant of Abraham, the promise of greatness is part of our inheritance, it is every parent’s responsibility to ensure children are equipped and made available for this great promise; In this modern world where love of technology has taken away many people’s devotion from the word of GOD. How often do parents have time for family gathering with children, to discuss the word of God? How important do parent ensure they are available for things of God? How confident are parents that our attitude and reactions to things of the world are not putting these children in the state of dilemma?

Colossians 3 verses 21 says, “Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged”.  I also learn from Isaiah 54 verse 13 that when children are taught by the way of the Lord, great shall be their peace. Most times, we parents rather force children to do things the way we seem right (in other to suit our own ways), but fail to acknowledge the fact that, there are hundreds of things to discourage or distract them; this proof that we can’t achieve anything by our own power but through the Holy Spirit and righteousness in them.

Ephesians 6 verse 4 also added “Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord”; I looked at another meaning for the word exasperate in the dictionary, and it also means ‘frustrate’ or ‘annoy’, does this mean the Bible also recognises that children have emotions and this could be pushed to limit?

On the other hand, God commanded children in Ephesians 6 verse 2- 3 “Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; that it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth”

Conclusively, let parents not ignorantly release children to the world to reshape their destiny, but rather jealously guide them to reach their potential as leaders of the world.
