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…

What if I was Given 5 Talents?

The Parable of the Talents is one that currently has me feeling guilty. Why?  I'm mighty good at being passive, at having logical and acceptable excuses for not doing a task. And I've been able to fight my 'silly' conscience pretty well that I now I fear for my lack of guilty feeling.  (I'm a weirdo.  Yes I know!)

If there's one thing I admire my mum for it's how she gets things done.  How she sees something wrong, and suddenly BOOM!  a strong ambition is born and she's fights with all her heart to fix it.  I on the other hand am a different variety of her genes. I think 🤔.  While I am aware of problems and can write up a beautiful solution to it or ponder deeply about the problem, doing something about it means I've given myself a hell of pep talk (by that I mean my mum or someone else has)  or it's a do or die affair (according to the convincer). This is not to say I'm some bottled up person who stays mute. Nope! I can do stuff ...fix stu…

THE BITTER TRUTH 102 (I FAILED).

I failed not because i want to. I failed not because the society was bad. I failed not because the economy was crumbling. I failed not because my parent had no money.
I FAILED BECAUSE I HAD TO!
Failure being one of the most used adjective is usually used to describe under performance and inability to meet up as expected to a particular task, but we ourselves fail to realize that failure  is not just a disappointment but a CHANCE. 
We all have different definition to describe failure but i define it as a SECOND CHANCE A second chance to rise. A second chance to think. A second chance to realize. A second chance to WIN.
I failed not because i want to, but i failed just because i had to go back to identify with me mistake and make an advantage over it. We all have and are still having our own fair share of failure in some areas, we all have and are also suffering from the discrimination attached to it but we miss out on a simple and clear fact that.  FAILURES ARE NOT THOSE THAT FAILS AND …
