Timely adjustment will mobilise the needed resources in Building Your Self-Confidence.

Posted March 8, 2019 from Kenya

Every achivement in this world  was first projected as a creative idea.The idea,faith and the means of implementing the idea.Having had a complicated childhood that spread over to my adulthood,i had to look for an idea that would help me to get out from the city of sorrow.I read books and listened to sermons.I used to admire seeing people holding the microphone on tv and so an idea came to meto improvise one.I would go to an isolated place by then i was living around the Bomas Of Kenya it has thick vegetation assorted trees,bushes and thickets.I would put the pipe on my mouth and shout out the name of the person and visualise him or her seated  there listening to what i had to say,your time is up from the free space you have occupied in my mind by tormenting me emotionally,spiritually and physically.I would pray to God for forgiveness peradventure i was the cause of the said abuse or torment.I would forgive them and let go.I would repeat this until the burden is lifted,Then i would sow seeds of love towards them and myself too,in confession and deeds.

I walk,talk and act love,which is the nature of God though it has not been easy as some wounds are yet to heal.In one of my lines of duty i would encourage my boss daily as any employee would do to a boss in gathering momentum for a good day.On this particular one,my boss told me what you are telling me is too much lets go.She took me to meet her mother in law who is the mother President Uhuru Kenyatta of the Republic of Kenya and former First Lady,Mama Ngina Kenyatta,it was at the peak of the ICC Case against the President due to the violence that swept the country after voting in 2007.I told Her Excellency Mama Ngina,you are the mother of Kikuyu's and all the other tribes in Kenya.All of us have sinned against each other and God.Therefore as a figure of authority -a mother cry out to God for forgiveness and in His wrath to remember mercy upon all Kenyans. Mobilise and delegate the repentance assignment to all.

Positive adjustments are contagious likewise the negative ones.This will require practice,but it can be done quickly if you will demonstrate faith.The process is to visualise  life after a mess.Create a mental picture of a better tomorrow and good people coming your way.Delete the past in totality.When you elevate your thoughts into greatness you minimise the size of your problem.Always come up over your problems.Don't run from the challange adjust to and learn from it.YOU ARE MY HERO.

Hello Bettina,

You are so wise. It's great that you learned a valuable tool early on to overcome hardship and bring more love and forgiveness into your life. It's not a easy lesson to learn; at least it hasn't been for me. I could've done with this tool when I was young, for sure:-) I agree with not running away from challenges because that's where the real growth and healing occurs.

Hope you're having a great IWD!?
