Teenager After God's Heart

I've made a decision to be a teenager after God's heart. You can make that life changing decision now. You don't have to advanced in age to serve God faithfully.

Ecclesiastes 12:1 Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth, before the evil days come and the years draw near of which you will say, “I have no pleasure in them”


Who is a Teenager After God's Heart?
1.  One who is seeking the will of God
Your life will be sweeter, more productive if you know God at this age. Ask: What am I wired to do?
It is the will of God that you will excel. Stop following the crowd. You are programmed to do something. Find it out. This is the age of decision. Any decision you make today as a teen will either make or mar you. Your fulfillment in life is in finding, knowing and doing the perfect will of God.

2. One seeking the pleasure of God
How happy is God in that thing you are doing? Is God smiling at that thing you are doing? A teenager after God's heart seeks to please God. We have a biblical example, David.

Acts 13:22: After removing Saul, he made David their king. God testified concerning him: 'I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.'

  
Whatever it is you do, seek God's pleasure in it.

3.  One seeking the kingdom of God
Matthew 6:33: But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Kingdom seekers are great achievers. Let us become addicted to the kingdom. If you seek after the kingdom of God, you will find it and be satisfied. There is joy, friendship, oneness, money, fun (yes even fun). Seek God early

4.  One seeking to belong to the family of God with his talent, strength, gift and money.

The Power of Mentorship

We were about to leave.  Everyone had participated in their activity except me but it looked like I was going to miss mine.  Worst of all I wouldn't be there till the end of the of the program.  It was an exciting and insightful experience and boy was I glad my mum had forced me to wake up and go to church so I could attend the Teens Fellowship which my church had been invited to. 
My heart was beating real fast as shyness did a long dance in my mind.  I so badly wanted to meet him.  I knew this was a chance of a lifetime, not one to simply close my eyes and pretend would come back again and maybe if I missed it again it'll still come back like a simple pendulum of opportunities, oscillating in my favour. Taking a deep breath I tapped his shoulders, knelt down to the level of the chair and introduced myself, "Good evening sir, my name is Emmanuella..." Then he put his arms around me and suddenly I felt calm. Yes, I was legit talking to Mr Zion Oshiobugie, The Academ…

The Bigger Picture: Poem Alert

"You're too shortsighted                    To see beyond the wall
                     Even though tall
                     It could still fall

                    You're too shortsighted
                    To see beyond the mountain
                    Is a great big fountain
                    That is for now, hidden

                    You're too shortsighted
                    To see the rain
                    Isn't actually a pain
                    But could be of gain"

This is an extract from a poem of mine. This poem pretty much captures all I want to explain today. We all pass through trials and temptations and during those times its very easy to become short sighted. We loose sight of His love. Its hard to understand what's happening, why its happening or perhaps how exactly it happened. It is in times like these we are meant to trust God, not to understand, but just trust. I hav…

Still I Rise

“You may write me down in history
With your bitter twisted lies
You may trod me in the very dirt


But still, like dust, I’ll rise”
The above is an excerpt from the poem ‘Still I Rise’ by Maya Angelou one of the most renowned poets of all times. I just love this woman (She’s late by the way…tears). This poem is a personal favourite.
In the course of our struggle, success story we will encounter setbacks- fact. We’ll experience disappointments, betrayals, failure. But it’s all meant to make you greater, give you a new strength and increase your wisdom. So do not lament over issues instead give joy and thanks for it is another opportunity to learn something new, break records and refine yourself.


Yes, I am aware it’s not easy during times of difficulty but you have to learn to have a resilient spirit that says, “No matter what happens, how big the obstacle is, how tired I may seem, I will not give up, I will not let the problem overcome me. I shall conquer, possess and achieve greater he…
