MORNING MOTIVATION 4 – To the Broken Hearted

I was supposed to be studying my Bible but like most Christians in my generation, I’d gotten distracted by a Facebook notification that popped up on my screen… I closed my bible app, religiously apologized to the HolySpirit and moved on to Facebook. I said ‘Sorry Lord, let me just check this thing sharp sharp.’ and then I giggled because I was trying to bribe Him with my cuteness. I’d been studying 1Corinthians 13: 4-7

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (NLT)

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

The HolySpirit had just taught me that LOVE as defined by this bible passage isn’t just all these things, but it’s all these things, all the time and at the same time! So, Love isn’t kind today and patient tomorrow, NO! Love is always kind and always patient. ALWAYS!! 

I was really excited at the new revelation or the reminder I had just gotten and I thought the lesson was over for the day but then I opened my Facebook to just reply a message and after almost an hour of scrolling through, I saw this… 
And then He said to me… Freda… Don’t blame Love for the mistakes men make– Freda Fred-Addo (HolySpirit inspired)

So someone hurt you… That doesn’t mean love is bad. Let go, and Love again! 
I hope this helps someone heal and learn to move on… 
P.S. – A lot of my posts have nothing to do with my personal life. I love you and I appreciate the care but y’all need to stop asking if I’m alright 😂😂
Moving on… I have a friend based in Kaduna who’s extremely hard working… He specializes in making really fashionable and durable shoes, slippers and sandals for men and I feel like he’s not getting as much publicity as he should for the quality of work he does… Here’s some of his work…

Cheers!!

Morning Motivation 3- Dear Diary

Good morning,
I woke up this morning feeling the urge to share one of my unconventional write ups… The ones that won’t normally make the cut. Not cuz they’re not good or nothing but simply because I wrote them specifically for myself…

Few weeks ago (maybe even months now) my friend who’s very dear to me texted me for one of our usual rant sessions… We’re really close and she’s such an amazing person! That kind of friend that you’d pray for even more than you’d pray for yourself sometimes. She’s extremely awesome!!
Every time she comes to mind and I imagine her in my future, I always picture her with this amazing man by her side!! The kind of man that you’d say ‘deserves’ her. But the boy she’s seeing now is ‘scoin scoin’… Everyone says she could do better and it’s not the kind of ‘you can do better’ that we’d say behind her back, we actually say it to her face! That’s how confident we are that she could aim higher… But you how love can be naa…

Anyway. One day we were talking about one of his ‘misbehaviors’ and I remembered something I’d written to myself a while back… I have these ‘reminder/pick me up’ messages I leave myself… I feel like everyone should do these… It really helps! I set alarms on my phone to remind me to check them once a while and they really help with my decision making process…

I shared this one with her and it helped a lot… I hope it helps you too! Feel free to share!
