Are U Searching For The Right Person? || Here’s Some Advice

Searching

There are so many myths and lies in the world of relationships that it’s no wonder people have suffered so much in this area. One of these myths is the idea of the “right person.”

“Why are you still single?”

“I haven’t found the right person yet.”

Ring a bell?

The idea that there is only one right person in the world which perfectly fits with another is the reason why many people are still single, while others are unhappy in their marriage. Single people dream of the person that will fulfill all the requirements on the list they idealized. Married people fight a battle against their doubts, which question if they married the right person. After all, they have so many problems.

This idea, however, is not plausible mathematically, logically, or spiritually.

Mathematically the numbers don’t add up. Statistics show that there are more single women than men. If we were to compare the number of single men to single women in the world, presuming that your perfect match is somewhere out there, someone’s going to be alone, like in musical chairs.

Logically it doesn’t make any sense. If a newlywed wife loses her husband in an accident and becomes a widow, does that mean that now there’s no point in her looking for anyone else to marry because the “right person,” the only one who could make her happy, died?

Spiritually there’s no biblical basis to this. If Eve was the “right person” for Adam then God made a mistake. It’s interesting that when God created woman, he described her as a “helper suitable to him.”

When the apostle Paul mentioned if a Christian woman becomes a widow, he said “she is at liberty to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord.” (1 Corinthians 7:39) That is to say, not only does she get a second chance but she is also free and responsible to make her own choice — as long as the person is of the same faith. So where does that idea that there is only one right person in the world, and the fantasy that God is the one who chooses the person we’re going to marry come from?

The truth is that we’re responsible for our choices. God gave us intelligence to identify who is compatible and who is not. And He institutes rules to produce a happy relationship. Break them, and there isn’t a “right” person in the world that will make you happy. The key to a happy marriage is not to find the right person; it’s to do the right things.

Do the right things to find a person who is compatible with you:

1. Expand your circle of friend

2. Choose with your head and not your heart

3. Allow yourself to begin a friendship

4. If things go well, begin to date with the intention of getting to know the person better (not to go to bed with them)

5. If when you get to know everything about the person and see living with them for the rest of your life would not work, nip the relationship in the bud, with no remorse.

6. If you see the fundamental qualities you need, then move forward to the engagement and then marriage

It is not magic, luck or a miracle. It is an act of intelligence.

The Lord Jesus’ Great Commission To Those Who Believe His Resurrection 

Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen.  And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.  He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. Mark 16:14-16 NKJV

STOP The “Poor Little Baby” Act

eyeballing-3

Yesterday while evangelizing, I saw a old school friend of mine who I’ve invited to my church several times over the past 5 years. I ain’t here to make fun of him but the truth is that his life is a mess. We spoke for like 30mins and i’ll be honest with you, for 25mins of that, he was playing the “Poor little baby” act.

He complained that the UK is corrupt, he is sick of people in our area coming up to him asking him if he smokes weed, the UK doesn’t want to give him a job, he is on job seekers, teachers lied to him that after school things will get better, he wants to move to Canada because it’s bigger and people are nicer there (which i heard is true) etc…

What got me frustrated to be honest was the fact that every time I offered the solution of: give God a try, since he never has come to a church meeting & see if it helps (as it helped me, that why I was out there evangelizing) he just kept complaining about how his life was messed up and how the country is this and the people are that & he wants to move to Canada.

BASICALLY going around in a circle, proving to me that he has embraced the role of a “Poor little baby”.

Complaining, mitching, crying and refusing to do something new to change the situation will leave you suffering & playing the role of a “Poor little baby” for the rest of your life, while others are out there like myself, who have to deal with the struggles of life and this country and make a way.

you can't live

Imagine if we all had this guy’s attitude, imagine if all the successful people in this country, those that are famous or those who are doing there dream job had his attitude, there would be no one happy in the country and even no one to even run the country.

What if I had different parents? What if I had been born in a cradle made of gold? What if I had been born poor? What if I were famous? What if no one knew me? What if I had never been sick? What if I had never been born?…

There are so many “What ifs” that we even lose count of them all. What do they actually reveal though? Frustration! And what causes them? Unfulfilled dreams, the feeling of living a life that does not belong to you, or not having love, friends, family, a home… and for thinking that life could be somehow different. What if I told you that it can?!

HOW?

1st: Stop the “poor little baby” act. Because when we are saying our “What ifs…”, we’re actually hoping that someone will come in and say “You poor thing… you’ve never really had any luck in your life, have you?”.

2nd: Look at what you have, not at what you don’t have! What DO you have? You have Faith, a brain, a body, a life (things that many, unfortunately, have lost!)…

3rd: Acknowledge that SOMEONE disappeared from the face of the Earth with only one goal: SO THAT YOU COULD EXIST AND HAVE AN OPEN DOOR TO ANY OPPORTUNITY YOU WANT IN LIFE!

Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? (…) “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today. Matthew 6:27 & 31-34 NLT

I invite you this Good Friday to your nearest UCKG branch at 3pm for our meeting. It will be a blessing, come along if your really wanna test what God can do for you. God Bless =]

I Hate him; he Is Such A LIAR! || Part 3

I HATE HIM SO MUCH!

The devil daily tries to make me believe that I and i’m pretty sure YOU are an exception/not included in the word of God when it comes to God’s blessings; but when it come to the curses and consequences of sin, we no longer are an exception/excluded to the word of God!

HAVE YOU NOTICE THIS?

There comes a point in everyone’s life where we MUST decide to either face the issue at hand head on asking God to help us or continue being proud, stubborn and hard headed & not ask God for help, convince yourself that life is OK, the suffering isn’t that bad & it’s not that deep etc etc etc… in a nut shell: Continue To Living A Lie.

Like I said at the beginning, I hate being lied to.

satan himself is the father of lies & he still is lying to us all daily to make us miss out on the fullness, blessings, justice, peace and above all, SALVATION of our soul.

Now the question is: ARE YOU GOING TO ACCEPT CONTINUALLY LISTENING TO satan’s LIES THROUGHOUT YOUR LIFE?

THINK about this deeply; DON’T ignore the reality.

What Are You An Expert In?

20080404-expert

Do you see someone skilled in their work? They will serve before kings; they will not serve before officials of low rank. Proverbs 22:29

Everyone has talents, but not everyone develops them. Everyone can be an expert, but most people are content with being mediocre.

You have at least one talent inside of you, probably more: Photography, speaking other languages, cooking, administration, writing, selling, serving, making others laugh, style, sport, gardening; or something you like, have an inclination towards, something you have joy in doing — or something you have a great curiosity of learning.

For each talent that randomly listed above we can name several cases of people who succeed and profit from it. And the money is not even the most important thing to them. The passion and joy of doing something they like with excellence is their best salary.

They not only have the talent, but they did something about it. They began to learn it, practice it, and develop it. They made mistakes, but perfected themselves. And they became masters, experts on the subject.

The good news is that the same path is open to you.

YesYou001

You already have a talent. What you need now is to believe in it and in yourself in order to develop your talent and become a master of this skill.

Without the fear of making mistakes, because an expert is the one who has made so many mistakes that he ended up learning everything that doesn’t work. That is why today he gets it right more than others.

Everyone should be an expert in at least one positive skill. At the very least, those who aren’t should be on their way to being one.

What are you, or on your way to being, an expert in?

What Is A Narrow-Minded Person?

close minded

It is someone who doesn’t open up to new horizons.

They are prisoners in their own stubbornness, closed-minded; they don’t receive new ideas or new opinions very well; their knowledge is outdated; they have limited vision on many subjects; a person whose habits or ideas are fixed or too resistant and difficult to change; someone who insists on doing something a certain way simply out of habit, without considering alternative approaches no matter how practical/logical they are; narrow minded.

Once in a while, you are going to find someone like this.

And when it happens, don’t let that person take you out of your game.

Trust me, it’s not worth it.

No matter how much every cell in your body screams, “Let’s go, we can convince him otherwise!” — ignore them.

Never underestimate the stubbornness of a narrow-minded person.

Don’t waste your breath on fools, for they will despise the wisest advice. Proverbs 23.9 NLT
