I celebrated my birthday last week and it was all shades of amazing.
Remembering where God brought me from last week, made me broke down in tears. I will never forget where God brought me from. The shy little girl filled with insecurities to a fearless and secured woman. I can remember vividly at age 12 when I had to wear more than one shorts before wearing my gown or skirt just so that I will not be called skinny. Is it how I isolated myself from my peers so that I will not be called a nerd? I was always reading everything I laid my hands on and growing up, it looked like it was a disadvantage and people made fun of it. At a time, I started to believe the lie that I had to question my uniqueness.
Then I gave my life to Christ at the age of 11 and it seemed as though I sacrificed my youth chasing God and His purposes for my life. I was so obsessed with His person because I think he is the only one that understood me at that time.
Looking back, all I can say is “it was worth it”. I will never regret living for Jesus. It is a priceless experience for me. I will not forget how my friends and I represented God proudly back from secondary school. It was just Him or nothing. We were not interested in any other thing. I will not forget the adventures in a hurry. It was as though God took us on a roller coaster. Then more than 15years later, the feeling is still the same. Fresh fire, in dept experiences, unexplainable mysteries and increased zeal.
What can I say?
The value of living is living for Jesus
I know we are in a generation with little or no regard for the kingdom. As tempting as living outside of the boundaries of Christ may look, it has absolutely nothing to offer. This is not to make you feel bad. This is a fact.
There is more to life than just living carelessly and subjecting yourself to a life of trial and error. You don’t have that time! There is a goldmine on the inside of you and your generation is awaiting your manifestation. Unfortunately, your current way of living doesn’t have generations in mind. That’s why you live a selfish life without impact. As long as you are comfortable and popping, you don’t need to bother yourself. Generations are attached to your name but you rather neglect them than align yourself with Gods purposes for your life.
This is a call to live for Jesus
This is a call to live a purposeful life
This is a call to live an impactful life
This is a call to leave your footprints on the sands of time
This is a call to answer the prayer of generations.
This is a call to stop sleeping on Gods deposit on your life
This is call to take your life seriously
This is a call to answer the call.
Personally, I don’t just want to exist, I want to live.
I want to leave a mark on this earth and a positive one at that.
I want to be remembered that in her time:
- Godly women were raised
- Women had it all
- Women understood the power of generational impact
- Women stopped living for themselves because they understood that their purpose was not about them
- Women took big risks to create everlasting legacy
- Women stopped being vain and focused on things that really mattered
- Women changed the world with their influence
- Generation of women who were deeply in love with God and themselves were raised that they didn’t have to cast their bread among swine just to be loved
- Women came back to their source and solved the issue of identity, that their identity is found in God and not in any man or world system
- Women made hell nervous
- Women lived their best life
- Women became a better version of themselves
- You can’t come in contact with her and your life remains the same
- Women poured out all their God given ability
- Women died empty
We can’t just leave this planet like that without making generational impact. We have to do our best and make kingdom impact so that when we get to heaven; Esther, Tamar, Rehab, Ruth, Deborah, Bathsheba and Mary will be like hey girl, we saw how you did your thing and we are so proud of you.
I challenge you to intentionally live for Jesus!
Cheers to living for Jesus
