Growing up, I wanted to be some many things others were that i was not. I wanted to have big butts, hairy skin because then I thought it was sexy as most people who had hairy skin seemed to be getting more attention from people. I wanted to have ample hips (lol). I know right, it sounds cheesy but that was my honest reality because i thought there was some default to my creation… do not get me wrong i knew i was beautiful . i just felt having all these additionals will make me more beautiful. I wasn’t aware that my mind can be manipulated to think otherwise like creation cheated me.
I believe so many persons in today’s age find themselves in this inadequacy trend that the media and others are placing on us or better still we are taking on. We are only as effective as our acceptance of people’s definition or our definition of ourselves. Learning to love yourself is among the greatest victory you will step into in your life time.
Here came my total liberty. But who are you, O man, to answer back to God? Will what is molded say to its molder, “Why have you made me like this?” (Rom9:20). If we wonder at creation which took the creator no time to put together in it’s perfect state i.e the fishes in the water bodies, the birds in the sky, human kind on earth.. He is too purposeful to make you unfit for your purpose. You look the way you are not because He fell short in your make-up but it was perfectly designed to fit your destiny. So to love yourself, know that,
- God doesn’t make mistakes you are just the way you are as you fit into His purpose for you. So before feeling inadequate ask why you were made the way you are and pursue it; appreciating others yet staying true to the amazing you
- Love yourself more because you are a master piece (Ps 16:9-10, Ps 139:13-16, 1Peter 2:9)
- Build relationships with people that bring out your worth not those that devalue you because of their notion of your ” imperfections
- Grow to love God more daily and declare His love daily over you
You are worth loving because you are a product of love. Learn to love yourself more. How do you love yourself ?
I don’t know why things are the way they are for me?
It seems God is not listening to my prayers and I know it is not because I have unconfessed sins.
What can be the problem?
Have you ever been at this cross road? God always sends messages to us or answers to our prayers but the issue is that we are always too noisy within to hear what directives Continue reading

Many people have varied views on and against arranged married. The truth is whether arranged or not, all requires smart work to make the best of it. What about arranged dating ? or in a more 21sT Century style; hook-up?
It sounds like a cliché question yet we see this happen to us or those around us every now and then. It’s basically parents, friends or relations connecting us with a man or guy on the grounds that we get to know them on a more personal note a develop a relationship with them be it healthy and not. Do not get me wrong, God uses people but we must be guided
Arrange dating is usually done for many reasons not limited to the supposed need for love, relationship, sex, money, events partners etc
At one point in time, a lovely cousin thought my singleness was too long gone and need for me to break free from my “ limiting lifestyle” and get a boyfriend as I was neither seen with a guy or talking about one or more importantly social “mediaing” a relationship with boo. So she arranged for me to meet a buddy of hers as he too kind of like the pictures of me he had seen. Good motives she had but given that we were not on the same part of life I should not have looked into the offer because even though then I was sloppy with my Christian race I still knew that certain people “scammers, yahoo yahoo guys or con men should not be the kind I should be around, You know what they say about the company you keep.
Because my love level for God was on the low and also given the fact that I knew our meeting up will not come from my pocket I went along. It was both wasted time and worth reducing just hanging around them but I guess it was for a day as today as I encourage someone to choose better.
The point is this, it is not wrong for people to want to arrange a partner for you if that is what you prefer or want but then, who is the head of the arrangement? How do this person they are arranging fit into your life and purpose? What is their take on the things that are prime to you? We all need help in life but we have to mindful of who is making the arrangement and if it aligns with your lives purposes and if God is at the center of it. If not please walk away. Do not try to save face and destroy your life.
Advice: You can look for it and read all about it in the book of the Eternal One.
