My Melting Point

I trust you all remembered to appreciate our father’s yesterday. It was such wonderful feelings to have my many Dads pray for me yesterday, simply because I remembered to say some nice words. Dad’s eh, they are such softies J. And the men of RCCG COD Cambridge too had a wonderful weekend I was told following their successful highly anticipated MEN’s conference, and the turnouts of participants from around the globe. We women definitely missed out, but our turn is coming also on 16th to 18th of September. I can’t wait!

I learnt an important message on Sunday. The Men’s plenary speaker Rev. Kola Ewuosho was constrained to stay for the Sunday celebratory service, so that the rest of us who were not in attendance for the conference had something to take home too. And I learnt an important lesson of my life.

You see, I had lived in Isolation for four of my seven years as a Christian, and had learnt during that time of my life the many messages of perseverance, refusal to give up, the attitude of worship, a closer walk with God, and so many. And yet, I did not learn the lesson of “maturity in dealing with people”.

I am easily offended! And as the man of God reminded me on Sunday, is an action that means others can’t be free around you since you are not free yourself. It took getting used to. I learnt so much in my time of solitude, so much that I pleaded with God not to take me out of the mountains, but I realise now why I had to leave. I realise now, that the world is made up of relationships, and I cannot confidently say I love or I’m in LOVE with God if I don’t relate well with His people. It took the Lord to take me to a place of a meeting with so many minds and characters to reveal the truth of the state of my heart to me. And on Sunday it came to melting point.

Not everything in life is that important to lose your joy over, and your pride, your insecurities, your fear of rejection is not worth compared to the joy and freedom that you have found in Christ. To let it go, to let them go, and to allow you and they be free. I was even more encouraged on Sunday that my failure in the way I deal with people, my acceptance of my failure and my ability to admit it to God and my attitude of change is actually what prepares a way for my success.

Even though I was previously introduced to the Kingdom of God, my acceptance of Jesus Christ as my Saviour, allowed Him to become the foundation of my life. Yes, He taught me many lessons during the many seasons in my life, but I still needed to be a matured Christian. And thus I had to leave the comfort zone of the lovely mountains of Alto Adige, to a place where responsibility was key.

To make a choice to either be easily offended, or choose to see beyond the offenses! To choose to see the offenses as a stepping stone to the manifestation of the greater person God has created me to become. A woman who is conformed in the image of Christ living in Dominion and Freedom that has been given to me, because of the finished work of Christ on the cross. Indeed I will be a fool if I choose to remain a woman in bondage, in bonds and at the mercy of people God has created me to take responsibility of my actions towards. No! From today, I choose not to be offended, and go and sleep a day I feel it’s gotten to a critical point J. But I know the Lord sees my heart, and He will help me in this new decision of mine in Jesus Name. Amen. And if you are like me, make that choice today too, and you will not regret it. The Lord will help us all in Jesus Name. Amen.

I cannot believe my eyes. I have been reading your blog on and off for years and it seems like now you go to the same church as my brother. His name begins with L and he's married to a U and works with the 'terrible ones' (my words). Do you know him?

I am coming to visit soon and I shall seek you out! *huge smile*
