Across Prayer Lines

In 2004, I fell in love.
Yes, I was in 1st year Uni, I was 17, I had worked and earned my first pay cheque. So, I had bought my first iPod and I fell in love. I fell in love with an India Arie song on the i-Pod, its called “God is real” (its still on my top 5 best songs ever, it’s still the background sound in the Hexavia/Potters Lounge website till date). I’d share concepts from the song.  #ChurchForTheStreets
I am not a fan of this human made socio-spiritual concept called religion. But I belong to one regardless, but refuse to be a slave to it. When it comes to life and religion, I don’t know what you call a free thinker, but I always think freely and deeply.  I heard free thinkers don’t believe in God,  well I guess I’m not! So I’d  share something inspired by India Arie’s song “God is real”.
This isn’t just religion or me marketing passed down cliche beliefs. From personal encounters and facts,  here’s what I believe in.
I believe this whole universe was designed. No matter how important we sometimes seem, we are mere tools, we are all just playing out a very small part of the script. Don’t feel yourself too much. I believe in divinity and the superseding powers of the heavens controlled by “God”, our creator. I believe in blessings. But for blessings, I’ve come to realise that God’s role is not to do for man what man can do for himself.  Stop transferring your responsibility. You want success then work for it!
Work, follow the right principles, do the right things and at that point, you invoke a higher realm of favour (grace) and in the right time you’d get the right results.
And for grace and blessings,  you were created in God’s image, do you even know what that really means?
It means there’s a part of him in you,  just like us, you should be powerful beyond imaginations. You have it. Use your powers right!
The power within you
The power within you
Stop running from pillar to post for that which is within. Until your prayer line changes from “God Please Bless Me” to “The World Will Be Blessed Through Me”, you will continue to receive peanuts and call it blessings.
Realize there is A SOURCE. Created by and in His image, we are a part of it. Your role is to be A CHANNEL, and not just A RESERVOIR. We are reservoir of God’s work – find and use yours!

The best of mankind are those who live for others in chasing their dreams. We only die once but we live forever. We can all impact people, either horizontally ( that is by reaching more people) or vertically ( not many; one on one but deeply). .

You see my dear, everyone in life has 2 sets of people predefined by life forces to be on our life’s path; those assigned to us and those attached to us. Those assigned to you are your helpers ( mentors, heroes, HNI’s we can either learn from or leverage upon), and almost equally, those designed and attached to us ( we are to help raise up, either as mentees, kids even if they are not biologically ours, interns, staff, wards, pet projects, group of less fortunates ). Every time we either horizontally or vertically increase our impact in the lives of those attached to us, more of those assigned to us shows up. Our failure in life comes from neglecting to identify and do the needful with the two types.

The reason why you don’t know my grandfather is probably because he lived for a few compared to maybe Mandela. But no matter how horizontally or vertically few, let the impact be sincerely felt.

Move from “God Please Bless Me” to “The World Will Be Blessed Through Me” and you’re on a path to quantum leap and greatness.
