Learn to ignore and overlook many things if you truly want happiness in life, because the easiest way to a miserable life is to try to live for the world and not live for God!!!
Never allow anyone to steal your joy from you. What people say behind your back is none of your business as long as you are true to God for we answer only to Him. Never worry yourself about that.
Sometimes minding your own business does not keep people out of your business. No matter your situation in life people will always talk. You can never stop people from talking about you, what you can do is to stop giving them what to talk about. “But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.” — 1 Timothy 4:7
There is a time limit for every rumor in life. Never allow freelance broadcasters to put your life on hold. Do what pleases God and what makes you happy. Anyone who cannot feel your pain, has no right to judge you in life. Seventy percent of those who talk bad about you behind your back, wish to be like you. Remember that the world first hated Jesus, who was without blemish or sin.
When people can’t be like you, they try to bring you down and condemn what you have. Those without money will sarcastically say money is not everything in life. (Is poverty anything?)
Never allow anyone to put you in a position of depression and self-pity in life. Those whose life has no joy will always find every means to remove happiness from other people’s life. “A miserable heart, means a miserable life; a cheerful heart fills the day with song.” — Proverbs 15:15
If there is the GRACE of GOD in your life, then enemies are inevitable. If no one has ever gossiped or talked bad about you, it means nothing good has ever happened to you.
Never feel bad when old friends become new enemies. They are just tired of pretending to be friends.
Never allow the opinions of people who didn’t see your tears, to stop your laughter in life. You don’t owe anybody an explanation to be happy. Never see yourself through the eyes of those who don’t value you.
To be beautiful means to be yourself. To stand out is to be out-standing. You do not need to be accepted by others. You just need to accept yourself.
Never beg anyone to accept you for who you are. Anything you acquire through begging will require begging to maintain or retain. “And be not conformed of this world, but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind, so you may prove that which is good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.— Romans 12:2
Be humble, but selective. Being selective doesn’t mean you are arrogant or proud, it simply means you know ‘whose’ you are and who you are.—“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers; for what hath righteousness to do with unrighteousness? and what Communion has light with darkness?” — 2 Corinthians 6:14
If you are conscious of your personality, avoid too much familiarity. “A prophet is not without honor, except in his hometown, and among his relatives and in his own household.” —Mark 6:4
Sometimes when you treat people too much like celebrities, they end up treating you like an ordinary person. You are equally important. Never downgrade yourself while trying to upgrade anybody in life. Anyone who sees you like an option, doesn’t deserve to be a priority in your life. “I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” — Psalm 139:14
The dream of a fool is for everybody to become a bloody fool like himself. Avoid negative people if you have a dream. Those without a mission, or purpose will say your vision is just an illusion. Negative minds will never give you a positive life. Anyone who is always reminding you about what is wrong with you, has a personal problem which he/she wants to take out on you.
Most people spend half of their entire life analyzing the faults in other people’s life, when their own lives need urgent repairs. Never worry yourself about enemies and friends, because everybody in your life will eventually fall into one of the two categories.
Some will hate you and some will love you. Loving you or hating you are both in your favour. When people love you, you live peacefully and happily in their hearts. When people hate you, you become the landlord in their head living painfully in their brain everyday and giving them sleepless nights. “Whoever hates me, hates my Father as well.”—John 15:23
The best awaits you in 2018! Remain in His Word, in prayer, humble, seeking His face always and worshipping and praising Him for He is Our God. Amen 🙏🏾
