Remember I shared that we would do a challenge to help us incorporate white spaces in to our lives? Click on this

According to the online Merriam-Webster dictionary, WORRY means a "mental distress or agitation resulting from concern usually for something impending or anticipated" Worry is associated with thinking thoughts that are laced with negative things happening. As I was writing these things down, I asked myself - what does God's word say about worry and I looked into Philippians 4: 6-8. That's where the next three steps to dealing with worry come from.

So earlier this week, there was this tweet by @aproko_doctor stating that your wife is your priority and comes before any one else when you are married. There were quite some interesting comments under the tweet. I will highlight two responses and give my thoughts on this.
Sometimes the things that have brought us thus far can only take us so far and not farther. We would need to access higher wisdom to go farther. This is why periodically assessing and evaluating our lives is important. You do not want to be surprised like I was.

Last week, I shared about my dealings with the fixed and growth mindset plus why I started working towards the growth mindset. Simply put, a growth mindset enables you grow and get better while a fixed mindset keeps you stuck and unable to push yourself. In this post, I'd share in more details five practices to help you commit to your growth.
According to Carol Dweck, people with the fixed mindset believe that intelligence is set in stone, would rather not expose their weaknesses and definitely avoid any challenges. People with the growth mindset on the other hand, believe that intelligence or smartness can be cultivated and see difficulties as learning opportunities.
"The good news is that beyond the cookie platters, shopping lists, and decorating is the Son of God made man for us."
What I am truly about would show in what I choose to prioritize and actually fight (as needed) to make time for. My excuses so far, do not hold water and my adjustments (should) start now!
I made a video on Sexual Purity to commemorate World Sexual Purity Day for year 2020. I an here to encourage young Christian adults that you are not alone on this journey.

It is October and the last quarter of 2020 and I quickly wanted to share a reflective exercise with you guys but before I get into it, in case you haven't heard or read anywhere, I just launched an e-book last month and you can click this link to access it for free.
Some days your productivity level might just be on a zero and that's okay. Tomorrow, you can try again. Sometimes it's not as black and white as it seems.
One day as I was in bed, going back and forth between sleep (or something else) versus prayer, lowkey wishing prayer cloak will fall on me, I reminded myself that if I actually put some things in place, I was more likely than not to get gingered to pray. So rather than singing "prayer fall on me" in one corner of my mind, I better set myself up to pray.
Yes we know you are a good chorister but apart from singing, what other activities do you enjoy doing? Christian Brothers have replied oo
Dear Christian Brothers, we know you love Jesus now add some game lol
A purposeful life is one that's fulfilling to you and meaningful to others
He has promised you certain things right? But it is not making sense. You did not think you will spend 1, 2 , 5 or 10 months or years still praying about the issue or worrying over it but He is reminding you that He has not forgotten
You and I will not be one year younger neither would we get the months gone by in 2020 again, so be wise!
