Life we know can never be as smooth as fresh baby’s skin but full of destructions sometimes.
Every successful person has a painful story, so never give up. A school bell that sounds as a disturbance at 8:am also sounds interesting at 2:pm…is just a matter of time… So do not envy anyone. Not everyone walking fast has an appointment. Some have no where going!.. If a rose flower smells better than tomatoes, it does not mean the rose can make a better stew. Do not try to compare yourself to others. You also have your own strength, look for it and build on it. All animals that exist today were in Noah’s ark. A snail is one of these animals, if God could wait long enough for snails to enter Noah’s ark his door of grace would not close till you reach your goals and expected position in life. Never look down on yourself, keep looking up unto God.
Remember that broken crayons can still use to color. Keep on pushing you never can tell how close you are to your goal. Some may walk, others may run, but remember God Almighty gave the tortoise and the horse the same days to reach Noah’s ark. Your journey might be rough and tough but you will definitely get to your destination. Jacob looked at Joseph and saw a good son, the ten brothers looked at Joseph and saw useless dreamer! The travellers looked at Joseph and saw a slave!! Potiphar looked at Joseph and saw a fine servant Potiphar’s wife looked at Joseph and saw a potential boyfriend! The prison officers saw in Joseph a prisoner !
How wrong were all of them! God looked at Joseph and saw a Prime Minister of Egypt in waiting!! So do not be discouraged base on your presence conditions and by what people see in you!! Be encouraged in what God sees in you!! Never underrate the next to you because you never know what the Lord has deposited in you or any other person. Your domestic worker may be a chief executive officer on waiting for a company which shall employ your child, your gardener may be a president in waiting. Remember David got the anointing of becoming king while he was simple child herding sheep. Esther was a simple orphaned girl yet she was a Queen in waiting. God does not check you family, background or your positions before he blesses you.
He does not care about age, no wonder he blessed Abraham.
He does not about experience, no wonder he chose David.
He does not care about gander, no wonder he lifted Esther.
He does not care about your past, no wonder he called Paul.
He does not care about your physical appearance that why he chose Zacchaeus.
If God can turn night into day, then he can turn your burdens into blessings. Never get disappointed when things happen outside your expectations. Remember that the greatest glory in life is rising when you fall, be strong and have faith. No matter how dark it looks, no matter how long it has been, God will always finished what he has started. Life is always a challenge, but God sustains us all.
“Remember that winners are not people who never fail but people who never quit ” what at all seems impossible for you why do you want to give up on God because of your present conditions, no successful person has had it easy on this earth everyone has a deeper story to tell. So do not let your situation now determine your future but have faith and have that i can do spirit in you for with God all things are possible.
