Has asking ever been easy for you? I am learning to ask with Faith and Hope

Marie Abanga
Posted February 17, 2019 from Cameroon

I am asking on the faith of Mt 7:7, and with a lot of hope. I took so long to ask because asking has never been easy for me - especially asking from the public like this.

Ask and you shall receive: Marie Angele Abanga is asking for a ticket to London – that is what I receive already spiritually and start celebrating today - ouf that was tough but I wrote it and just repeated it to myself

I was seriously thinking about where I was going to get a ticket to go to London next month, precisely departure on the 15th of March – return on the 10th of April. I was musing and prayer for 3 days last week, and on Friday my spirit said well Mt 7:7. I looked it up and I started crying. I had to calm down and then talk with some before doing this today.

Maybe I am not the only one who finds it so hard to ask - I wasn’t and still am not an ‘I want person’. So, I tried to be still some more to listen if there was an alternative to doing this, but nope if you need you will have to ask before you can receive.

So there I go, I am asking for help to get a ticket to go to London. I checked and that will be around 550.000frs cfa or maybe less if I search other airlines and get it early – although March isn’t a peak travelling season so my hopes are high. That will make approx 916 usd or 611 pounds. I am so hopeful Amen - I mean if I were just offered a ticket wow how amazing and graceful.

I got that UK Visa last October on my faith, and an invitation letter for a summit which was long over before the visa was even granted. It occurred to me before I even got the visa, that the real reason for the trip will be revealed to me later as well as the when I’ll actually travel.

Last month, I was invited in my capacity of founder Hope for the Abused and Battered association, to be a guest speaker at a Women’s Conference on March 30th in London. I am equally hoping to use the trip for much needed networking and partners sourcing for the association.

With a mental health care support center to open; as well as a shelter for victims of domestic abuse, partners and members are definitely needed from everywhere.

I therefore want to already thank all those who will be reaching out through whatever means, to help me get this covered.

I know how cheerful I have always felt giving, may you feel same way too. It is true there is more joy in giving than in receiving, but this time around the joy will be so mutual.

Hello Dear Marie,

Thanks for sharing your post. I don't like asking for help, or things, either. Perhaps it comes with the humanitarian genes...ha:) It's great that you were invited to speak at this conference, to impart your wisdom and to find/create a great network of supporters for your center and work. I think you will get there....

Dear Karen,

Thank you really. Hmm if I tell you how last October my spirit just moved me to found the association and launch my motivational speaker career online, and how I visualized myself speaking to a large foreign crowd this year, and to say the first time abroad will be at a women's conference - am so grateful and blessed

Hello, Marie,

Please do tell me how you founded your association and launch your motivational career. I do hope to learn from your experiences since you’ve written books. I want to write my own books, too.

Yes, you are blessed!

Dear Karen,
I don't know the laws in your country with regards to forming an association, but in mine it is clear and not so difficult once you get legal assistance to draft the necessary documents required by law. With regards to my motivational career, I am yet to register that enterprise but I could just add that to my legal practice I'll see.
With regards to writing my books, I just got the writing bug and I am continuing; the publishing I do it myself via the amazon: https://kdp.amazon.com/
Thank you once more dear
we all are blessed

Thank you so much, Sis Marie. These are very helpful information. You’re unstoppable! Thank you for the link, too. Yes, we are blessed!:)

Dear Sis,
Thank you o. I am full of hope. No sponsors yet, it's still a just me association to be honest - legalized in December 2018. This trip is thus very important for me, but I am so hopeful

Marie,

Your article is so important. It reminds me of who I used to be many years ago. One thing I know for sure is, your being scared or finding it uneasy to ask, is your divine clue that you are not feeling worthy. Likewise, when you feel worthy it is easy to ask for what you want or say what you want. When it was me in that position, I used this to help me get the the "I AM WORTHY", me. Now I am always worthy. It isn't about if someone says no back to me. It is about the reality that I AM WORTHY to ask. Hope this helps . Good luck. Perhaps in the future instead of thinking, this is not going to be easy, you can say to yourself "It's not hard. It's a decision." And just spit it out. Or as I used to say to myself FEEL THE FEAR AND DO IT ANYWAY. Thanks for reminding me how far I have come.

Yes Yes Wendy,

Thank you. I felt the fear and spat it anyway. I did a live video, a blog post, a LinkedIn post and will be putting that up on the website I am building asap. It wasn't easy I can imagine, but it was worth it. Now, I stay inspired by you and borrow the "I AM WORTHY" henceforth to carry along in my mental luggage.
Thank you so much

when you feel the fear and do it anyway, be sure to congratulate yourself big 5ime. that's self esteem. I AM WORTHY is high self esteem talk. Talk to yourself "I am worthy and I finally know it. YAY!" And here's the bonus ....it gets easier with practice. becomes a part of you. it's not about praying or reading the bible. It's about saying and doing it yourself. But God is looking down smiling thinking "Way to go, Marie".
