In life, you have to know what you want but then that is a process so don’t beat yourself up if you don’t know yet.
God is the creator and He knows why He created you so I suggest take some time out to get guidance from Him. It’s something so little yet so key because the truth is His will would always be done so it’s better to know what it is and walk in it instead of going round in circles and still coming back to it.
I know that one is most sensitive to the voice of God during a fast so that would be my advice, even though you might not get the answer immediately. It could take a while. Try the Daniel fast sometime.
While you’re fasting though dabble into different things here and there and find mentors or read about people that have succeeded in the fields you want to go into. God has given you the skill to do all sorts of things.
Don’t be idle!! An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.
Don’t be shy to ask for advice from older people and don’t be scared to work for free too. You’re in the building stage of your life so anything that will add value, please do.
As you’re being sensitive to the Holy Spirit be sensitive to your environment. Look for problems and try to find solutions to them.
Bind and cast the spirit of laziness and procrastination because they are the worst.
If you fail at anything, do not beat yourself up or sulk or mourn. Hurry and get up so that you can try the next thing. A failure is a step closer to a breakthrough. At least you’ve learnt what you should not do or how you should not go about a thing.
Just because you think you like him/her does not mean they’re good for you. Test all likes!!
Don’t rush into things without knowing exactly what you’re getting into.
Do not choose a partner based on how he relates with you friends’ partners. He is probably not God’s choice for you.
Do not think you will marry him just because he loves God. Not every man of God is your husband.
Do not worry, you will eventually meet your husband. Just make sure you have heard properly from God first.
You will never know how to love your partner if you do not love God. You find out that your love for him increases from loving God. I just understood this today so do not beat yourself up if you do not understand.
Never lie to your parents. NEVER!! You will regret it.
“A man can receive nothing unless it is given to him from Heaven” – John 3:27. Everything you have was given to you by God so feel free to ask Him for the user’s manual.
Everything will work out for your good because you love God and are called according to His purpose. Do not forget the reason everything will work out for your good!! You have to love God and walk in the purpose He has for you. Don’t worry if you don’t know your purpose yet, you will eventually (and you will love it). However you only find out from spending time with God.
You will realize that all you’re going to go through is preparing you for your purpose.
Always show love to others Don’t be scared to go above and beyond. Show love even if, in fact, especially if you know it won’t be reciprocated. It is a good feeling.
Read a lot my dear.
Use your time wisely.
You will have very good taste in music eventually.
Never compromise on your standards, they are not too high.
You must decrease for God to increase. Do not hold on to yourself. What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul.
You will find a church that excites you to go to church on Sundays.
Speak declarations over your life (including your husband and children babycakes). This is what Jesus meant when He said you should have faith as little as a mustard seed. When you speak the words God has revealed to you over your life, you do not fret or have panic attacks (ahh you will have these) when hard times come because you have spoken and believe the word of God concerning you (in other words, you have faith).
You are fearfully, wonderfully and perfectly made. You will eventually see it. Just wait.
God is worthy to lean on. Trust in the Lord with all you heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.
You are nothing without God. So do not leave Him.
God’s strength is made known in your weakness. You won’t always have it all figured out or you might not be able to handle all of it. That is when God comes in.
Let your light shine so bright that others see the good work in you and glorify your father in Heaven. This should be your mantra.
Learn to save.
Always give your first fruit to God, not because it is a law, but because you want to. First fruit of your day, income, everything.
You are loved by God, your family, friends, even strangers will love you.
Do not be afraid of man who can kill only body but fear God that can kill both body and soul.
Sometimes you will feel your fire for God burning out, when that happens, come back to read this or anyone of the previous posts or the book of acts.
Drink a lot of water.
Don’t joke with your health.
Never stop improving yourself.
Have a gentle and quiet spirit (Lam 3:27-28).
Don’t let what people say about you get to you, especially if it is not true. Only God’s thoughts towards you matters.
The Holy Spirit is your best friend boo.
Don’t get bored of reading your bible.
Most finally, NEVER STOP LAUGHING!! Life is not that hard.
I love you so much my darling, which is why I am writing this. You’re amazing.
