SHM Weekly Charge_2013 Week 02_MOVE ON!!!!!!!

My dear friends, by now I am sure you are tired of New Year wishes! So, let us move on quickly. It is now settled that your year will be good because the word has already gone out! So today, I want to take time to urge you this one thing – MOVE ON! What exactly do I mean?

2012 may have brought its disappointments; it may have let you down regarding a few things. My friends, it is time to move on. On the other end of the equation, 2012 may have given you your best testimonies yet – maybe a new house, a new job etc. My friends, I charge you too – MOVE ON!

This is the way of it – you have to keep pressing forward. On the achievement of 2012, build something greater on it – improve on your skills, broaden your capacity level, acquire more competence. Despite that disappointment, press forward. Do not let it define your life, please! Your life is designed for greater and better things. MOVE ON! MOVE ON!! MOVE ON!!!

My dear friends, trust me, no matter your level right now (for good or improving) you are still on a journey. I am sure you have heard it said that success is a journey, not a destination. Let me also tell you this – failure is a journey, not a destination! That is what the Lord mean in John 15 verse 2. What has worked improve on it, what has not worked, prune it. No need to dwell, no need at all.

So, to be able to do this effectively, take all you have experienced in the past year as preparation for fresh challenges, even the not too pleasant ones! Remember that adage that says once beaten, twice shy? Take your lessons, don’t dwell; MOVE ON. What this mean is that if you have not made notes of your challenges and lessons learnt, then go back and do so. Next map out strategies that will help you avoid the same mistakes or help you maximize existing landmarks and opportunities. Of a truth, you shall excel IJMN. Have a great week ahead.

FORGIVENESS = PEACE

Dear friends, according to scripture, we will only receive forgiveness when we afford it to others. Remember also, YOU WILL NEVER BE ASKED TO FORGIVE SOMEONE ELSE MORE THAN GOD HAS ALREADY FORGIVEN YOU. Release someone today and enjoy the benefits of your action.

 

Take a look again at the accompanying picture. What exactly do you see? I see prescription for us, not for those who have hurt us. So as one wise fellow has said, forgiveness is really about us, not about those who have offended us, and who will continue to be like us – mere mortals with shortcomings!

 

Truth is, at the end of it all we all are imperfect people called to love other imperfect people. I NEED TO EMPHASISE THAT – we are all imperfect people, one way or the other – regardless of each person’s practiced façade and well-worn masks and pretentions of perfection. So, if we all are the same (and we are in the eyes of the God of the Bible, for all have sinned and come short of His glory – now or before!), we must appreciate we all need or will need forgiveness at one time or the other. And what you do not give, you will not get. Not my principle, but Jesus’, in Luke 11 verse 4.

 

As you head into the new working week, receive grace to let go, and let God. I will be praying for you, as I trust you will be praying for me too. You were created to excel and excel you shall IJMN.
