God Will Make A Way by Don Moen

By | Uncategorized

This has been such an inspiring and captivating read. Written in a conversational style, the author shares experiences from his life, both good and discouraging, as well as the lessons that we can draw from those experiences. The book gives a good glimpse into the author’s life and into the workings of God in someone’s life from ordinary circumstances to great achievements.

I found this book interesting and inspiring. I was challenged to trust God more, knowing that He is always making a way behind the scenes even when it does not seem that way in the present. I actually read the book in one seating, and it is one that I would definitely read again and again and recommend to other people. It is a great encouragement to people going through tough times, and especially so because it conveys biblical truths, so the hope that is shared will definitely last, because God’s word endures forever.

Please Don’t Do It

By | Uncategorized

During this Valentine’s Season, many girls lose their virginity to people to whom they think they are special. They imagine that there’ll be fireworks and love that lasts forever. That they’ll be special and loved, that it’ll be something oh so awesome.

Well, child, allow me to write this to you. Keeping your viriginity untill when you get married is a gift to yourself. Yes, you honor God when you do it, but you also give yourself a very special gift, a gift that comes with dignity, pride, purity, assurance, self-esteem, self-confidence, and many others.

Having sex before marriage is not really that special. You may think that everyone is doing it and that it’s the in thing to do, and you might feel like you’re missing out if you’re not doing it. Well, let me tell you this, you think they’re fancy? You can be like them in a moment. But they can’t be like you, ever, ever again. Do you want to make that switch? Right now, you have a choice. After you’ve done it, there’s no erasing it. Keep your virginity. Save yourself unnecessary pain and heartbreak.

See, you think it’s going to be all nice and there’ll be fanfare about it. What you don’t know is that you are the one who’s going to experience it in its fullness, the before, the during and the after. You’ll be dreaming about it before you do it, sometimes apprehensively, wondering how it’ll all be, whether you really should do it or not, what your friends will think, whether you’ll finally fit in.

As you do it, let me tell you, you’ll be wondering whether this is really all there was to it. Whether this is the best person to have do it with first. Whether it was all worth it.

After you do it, you’ll begin to worry about whether you’re the only one he’s done it with, might you be pregnant, might you now have an STD, is that all there was to it, was it worth it? And you’ll wish you hadn’t done it.

You might numb these feelings using drugs and alcohol, partying and other lewd behaviors. Or you might hide behind make-up, fancy dressing and loud living to try and silence the noise that’s inside. Child, that ain’t gonn’ work.

The best time to give yourself that peace of mind that you so, so need, is now. The time to avoid nights when you cry yourself to sleep because of guilt, self-doubt, anger, bitterness and indescribable pain is now. The time to avoid regret is now. Please don’t do it. FOR YOUR OWN GOOD.

I know that some of you reading this now have already done it. It’s not okay, no, I won’t say that it’s okay. But there is hope, in Jesus. You can come to Him for refuge and strength, forgiveness and cleansing. And you can start all over again, committing to living a pure life and leaving the past truly behind. He can heal you and walk with you. You may never forget, but the wound can turn into a scar, a painless but inspiring scar – teaching both you and others the right way to live.

Let’s keep talking, dear girls.

Love,

Anngladys Gichuhi,

Founder – Amazing Girl Mentorship Network. 

Movies vs. Goals

By | Uncategorized

Wow. 2019 is here with us already…well, it’s been here for about a month. How has that month been for you? What have you been able to accomplish so far?

Sometimes I’ve gotten so tired – even mentally, that I’ve settled down to watch a good movie. Well, several. The other day I was looking back, counting how many movies I’d watched, and how many hours I’d taken to do that. Then I compared that with the hours/time that I’d spent working on my 2019 goals.

Earlier in the year, I’d seen a post from a fitness trainer who’d said that people had already started giving excuses for not exercising this year.

So I asked myself, how come it’s always possible to find time to watch a movie, but not to work on some other items? Or there’s time to text certain people, make phone calls to others, visit some and simply keep postponing or totally avoiding others?

It really has nothing to do with the constraints of time. Or a busy schedule. It’s really all about priorities and passion. What’s important to you will get prioritized and done. For what you are passionate about, you will find the time and means to get it done. So there really is no acceptable excuse there.

If some of the time spent on leisurely or unproductive things was spent on something more useful that generates desirable results, life would be different.

Let me finish this off with a response that I got from a friend the other day after describing how I hope for a profitable 2019: 2019 will be the way you make it.

P/S: Watching movies is actually in my plans – and since I love movies and series so much, I actually look for ones that are in line with my goals or things that I’d like to learn, and therefore develop and enjoy myself simultaneously.
