#flashblack to 2006/7. Gosh this was the last year of secondary school. I had no idea who I was. I was yet to give my heart to the lord. Was not at all in touch with myself or who I was in Christ.
The teachers told me what they thought of me in terms of my grades. I always had a deep desire and I fought for myself when my teachers predicted me with lower grades based on my performances or background. After all I had only been in this country 6 years. They assumed my grades would be lower, that I wouldn’t make it far. But self-belief helped me to believe in myself, to study hard, to aim for more. It was in those challenges that I actually realised how smart I was.
I did not know that the God had a plan for me. That the enemy was trying to destroy it very early on. Who knew the same girl who was teased for her accent, who struggled with written English, was extremely shy and was very insecure is now a leader in the body of Christ, an author and a blogger, and a speaker whose boldest when proclaiming the gospel.
You see God did, even though I hadn’t encountered him yet. The enemy attacks you sometimes where he knows God wants to use you best. My strongest gift is communication and my purpose is teaching self-value in Christ. The enemy used my circumstances to make me believe I was not valuable so that I wouldn’t teach that to other people therefore not bringing many to Christ.
That lack of self-value weakened my gifts of speaking and writing in that I was extremely shy and afraid of what people thought about me, but also that I was not a good writer. So, you see the devil is a liar, he would make me believe that I was the only one that had those challenges and everyone else was perfect but it is not true.
So in the midst of tests and trails I encourage you to trust God. Love him more than anything and anybody. Go to God for everything before people and he will fulfil you. God has great plans for you. He has called you for such a times as this. You deserve a great life. It’s your destiny. But you have to believe it and believe God.
I love you and I am praying you. have a great day .
