Feelings vs Responsibilities

image

Sometimes, you have many things to do but you don’t just feel like doing them. You have the option to go with your feelings and refuse to accomplish what you need to do or tackle it and get it done in spite of your feelings.
FACT:
You’ve got to take charge of your feelings and emotions and take care of your responsibilities. Feelings are fickle so you can’t make decisions based on them.
Accomplish your tasks and do not neglect your responsibilities even when you’ve lost every zeal, even when you don’t feel like.
Responsibility is a Discipline, you cannot afford to ignore it.
***
Do not take this lightly, stop procastinating and start working on those goals you’ve set out to achieve this year and above all, humble yourself like the clay and let the Potter mould you into what He wants you to be.
**
Wishing you a Fabulous, Fruitful, Productive week ahead.
     His Grace is Sufficient for You,
                                               MayreeH.

REFINING PROCESS

image

Presently going through a delay or tough time or trial? It’s not time to grumble or complain, get weak and tired, NO!.. it’s time to become steadfast in the Lord and let Him take you through the process or phase bearing in mind that when His Glory is finally revealed through you, you shall rejoice and be filled with exceeding Joy & this Joy shall overflow and be emitted to those around you.
Gold in its raw form is displeasing, unattractive but when passed through the refining process, its value and worth shows forth, it shines, it becomes attractive….
The phase of difficulties, tough times & trials aint a period to think God isn’t with you or He aint doing His job or He’s left you….
This phase is a “SPIRITUAL REFINING PROCESS”.
It is the period where God like a Goldsmith refines you, polishes you, takes you through the fire, just to make you shine at the end.
You come out more matured & stronger, your light sooO shines,  your value and worth shows forth and the radiance of God’s Glory reflects through you.

1 Pet 4:12-13
12: Friends, when life gets difficult, don’t jump to the conclusion that God isn’t on thr job.
13: Instead, be glad that you are in the very thick of what Christ experienced. This is a spiritual refining process, with glory just around the corner.  {The MSG}
             God Loves YOU Super Much,

FLEXIBILITY

image

While we may make smart future decisions, life is full of twists and turns that require us to remain flexible.
Do you get angry when your plans change?
Is it always hard for you to adjust because you like things to work out according to your expectations?
Does a minor change in your schedule throw you off balance?
Is all these a sign of control issue or insecurity?
These are questions we need to ask ourselves.
As we live our lives, there are bound to be alterations in our plans, its either you learn to be flexible or your rigidness will turn to bitterness.
Instead of getting frustrated, depressed,  worked up, bitter…. because things aint going as you’ve planned, why not turn to God, Call on Him…
It’s hightime we realized that our ways are not necessarily God’s ways and His plans supercede all others.
Relinquishment (Letting go) is the way to FLEXIBILITY.
Letting go means, above all paths, plans, people… I will deliberately rest in God’s supervision over my life.
Whether you’re talented at planning and strategizing or you are an hesitant (unable to decide), what will make your journey a success is your willingness to sail the course that God has charted for your life.
Make your plans in pencil and hand God the eraser!
STAY FLEXIBLE!
                      Love You Plenty Much,

WHY TEACHING???

image

When I tell people about my passion for teaching especially the fact that I’m interested in the younger kids, they wonder and ask “why teaching?”
#smiles….
The fact is, it runs in my blood and I just can’t help it. I remember my primary school days when I force my siblings to do lesson with me and when they refuse, i give them all they want and when they still don’t coperate, I beat them. #face covered… Don’t judge me, I wasn’t a wicked sister, just didn’t like that I couldn’t express my passion. Didn’t see it as a passion then though….
After secondary school, it was Medicine or nothing but after 3years of trying, I went for Pure and Applied Chemistry. I used all my strike and holiday periods to teach and I sooO enjoyed it + my mum started a school before my admission (yes, she’s an educationist)… a part of me loved to teach all the time but I always thought “would I be teaching when my mates have better jobs and are pursuing greater careers?”, little did I know that teaching is the greatest and most fulfilling profession. #no beefs plsssss

Let me apologise ahead that this post might be long cos when I’m talking about my passion for teaching…. it’s really hard to stop. I guess my apology is accepted.

Okay back to where we were … #now I’m hot (temperature wise)
In my 200Level, I started searching for more information about teaching and education on the internet and I realized I would have to do PGDE after my B.Sc to be able to switch {since I was studying pure chemistry and not Chemistry Education}, then I let it go. I couldn’t imagine going through that (wasting another one year before masters? No way!) but my heart kept longing for it. My Industrial training (I.T) in a pharmaceutical industry made me realize how much I love and prefer teaching to labouratory and analyses.
My NYSC year was the manifestation of this teaching passion I had been trying to bury. I enjoyed teaching at my PPA despite I wasn’t being paid & even took another part-time teaching job all in the quest to satisfy this urge and that was when I decided to go for PGDE before masters if that was what it would take to achieve this dream of mine and be a teacher professionally. #relief
I remember Prof. Adeniyi & few lecturers I met to sign as referees challenging my decision to become a teacher, they were suprised…
I know I’ve said a lot but where I’m driving at is this…….
There’s nothing more fulfilling than following your dreams, doing what you love most, going through the stress and overlooking the reactions and comments  of others. That peace, joy, satisfaction you feel within is indescribable & can’t be bought with money. When you are in love with what you spend the most of your time doing….. I can tell you you’ll be Fulfilled, Happy!
I almost gave up this dream just because some people i tell will always say “its because your mum has a school”, they felt I wanted an easy way out. But i thank God for Wisdom, Maturity & Courage to think bigger than these people, I thank Him for my wonderful, ever-patient parents & few people who kept breathing encouragement to my dream & also for all the opportunities He exposed me to, that helped in confirming my desire to teach.
So my wonderful fabulous people…. what’s that dream of yours, that passion that’s biting you within and you just can’t ignore? Are you ashamed to pursue it probably because it’s not appreciated by the  society? Are u scared your mates will get richer than you? Fine, the economy is tough but you can work towards it, ensuring God leads you. What makes you think you can’t make it appreciated by your own approach and standard? As in… You can be different and stand out? There are farmers and there are FARMERS! The same way there are teachers and there are TEACHERS! As for me, though many teachers make teaching profession seem ugly and poor…. I Stand out and I’m a proud Educator, A Great teacher… and I look forward to moulding more lives, cultivating great dreams and making school, an extraordinary place where it aint all about books but Life, as long as I live.
And if you’re a teacher and you are reading this…. please let’s raise the standard of the teaching profession… by the way we dress, teach, associate with the pupils/ students, etc.
Don’t be like those teachers that make the teaching profession synonymous to poverty.
Be a great model so that the younger generation can say ‘I want to become a teacher in future” without thinking twice.

ACCOUNTABILITY

image

I’ve sincerely missed blogging…
This is going to be a very short post… Happy New month by the way…. Did you set some goals for the year 2014? Its the 3rd month in the year already…. how far have you gone? Are you working on them? Are you still procastinating? Who are you accountable to? Is there someone that you trust & you’re sure wants the best for you? Very optimistic, Firm, Disciplined & an encourager? Ask God for direction, then approach him or her, discuss your goals with the person or send the list of ur goals, if the person isnt near…. You could also ask for his or her goals too…. that way you  both can be accountable to eachother, push eachother, encourage & boost eachother…. I’l suggest a progress report every 2wks or once a month. The progress report will contain how far you’ve gone with each goals, challenges, breakthroughs, testimonies, etc….
That’s just my idea.. share with us your idea(s) of achieving set goals.
So its a new month & a new week already. ……
      No whining
      No Complaining
      No frowning
        ONLY
     HUGS, SMILES &
WARM FUZZY FEELINGS
      ARE ALLOWED.
Remember God Loves you like crazy….. He’s always right there just call on Him.
     Dont forget to share your ideas of achieving set goals. A Splendid + Blessed week to yoU All.
           Love You!

WAITING

image

Yet those who wait for the Lord
Will gain new strength;
They wil mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired, 
They will walk and not become weary.
                          Isaiah 40:31

4 things happen when we wait:
* We gain new Strength
    We may feel weak or even intimidated when we turn to God but while waiting, we amazingly exchange our weakness for His strength.
* We get a better perspective
     It says “we will mount up with wings like eagles.” Eagles can spot a fish in a lake several miles away on a clear day. By soaring like eagles while waiting, we gain perspective on what we are dealing with.
* We store up extra energy.
    “We’ll run and not get tired.” Notice, it’s future tense. When we encounter situations we dread, we’l tackle it with new strength – extra energy will be ours to use.
* We will deepen our determination to persevere.
    “We will walk and not become weary.” The Lord whispers reassurance to us. He puts steel in our bones.
All these happens when we wait on the Lord.
*****
Though during the period of waiting, nothing is happening visibly, don’t feel like you are waiting in vain or start thinking “nothing’s going to change”. Its d devil at work trying to make you think: Waiting is a waste.
  Don’t believe it! When such thoughts start roaming in your mind, kick it out and look up Isaiah 41:10,13.
“Do not fear, for I am with you;
Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, surely I will help you,
Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”
“For I am the Lord your God, who upholds your right hand,
Who says to you, ‘Do not fear, I will help you.”
☆☆☆
      This really helped me and raised my spirit, I hope it does help you too.
            God though invisible is invincible. His Love for you… Unending.
                         AV A BLESSED DAY

ARE YOU REALLY…..

image

Hehehe…. St Valentine’s Day & everyone is taking it all …..
Valentine’s Day is a day set aside to honour St. Valentine. Back in 269AD, the emperor of a particular kingdom in which St. Valentine was a priest stopped young men from getting married. In those days, most of the young men were soldiers and the emperor felt if they got married and had families,  they would be distracted and be thinking of their wives and children during the war…. but St. Valentine didnt agree with that, he felt they had the right to express their love by getting married. He started wedding couples secretly. The emperor found out, he was arrested,  tortured then executed by beating, stoning & then decapitation (beheading).
So today aint for just you and your boo, everyone deserves to be loved. Remember “God is Love” and as His ambassadors, we should reflect Love… we should radiate Love. Our words, deeds, actions should be of Love.
There’s nothing wrong in having fun today but seriously… if that guy or girl that acts like you aint special is making you feel so special today, Beware!
I saw a question yesterday and it made me laugh… it goes thus, “Are you really your Boo’s Boo?”, funny right?  But seriously be sure You are His or her ONLY Boo.
Another thing…. LOVE IS NOT SEX! Dont let any guy deceive you, today is not the day for sex if you aint married yet, dont let all the gifts and outings distract you or get you carried away that you fall into his bed.
You’re single & you are feeling bad… “no one to take me out or give me gifts???” .. make yourself happy, take yourself out, love yourself, pamper yourself, stay contented. In God’s timing, you wil be blessed with someone who will treat you like everyday is Valentine’s Day.
Have a Fabulous Day…. I Love You all…. God Loves You like Crazy!

LOVE IS SPELT T-I-M-E.

image

The time you give to something reveals its importance and value to you. If you want to know a person’s priorities,  just look at how they use their time.
DO you spending quality time with your creator, spouse, children, family, friends, loved ones or you’re always coming up with the excuse “I’m Very Busy”???
Busyness is a great enemy of relationships. We become preoccupied with making a living, working, accomplishing goals…. that we overlook the more important things.
Noone says working, making money, pursuing goals… aint important but you’ve got to learn to live a life of BALANCE.
There has to be a balance between career and life. Wonder why many people call for their family and loved ones on their sick bed or death bed? Why didnt they ask to be taken to the office?
During trials and life challenges.. who stands by you? Family and loved ones OR your colleagues and boss?
So as we go through 2014, we should learn to live a life of balance. Plan! Create time for loved ones, work, your goals, self, God……
Remember your job, career, profession or buisness was given to you by God, it shouldn’t take your attention so much that you don’t even remember to say “Thank you Lord”. Don’t even make the mistake of praising yourself for your successes… that’s taking the glory that belongs to God.
Be careful how you live your life, order your steps in His Word, place your priorities right and as I always say “make gratitude your attitude”.
Remember:
*The most desired gifts aint roses, diamonds,  car or houses. .. NOPE.. Its Focused attention,  TIME.
*Develop great relationships, show love.
*Life- Love = 0

The Best use of Life is Love. The best expression of Love is Time. The Best time to show love is NOW!

  ****
Working on something specially for women…. its about Balancing your role as a woman, wife and mother. You’ll sure get to know when it is ready.
             God loves you SUPER much,
                                          MayreeH.
