YOU: YOUR GREATEST INVESTMENT.

Not only are you God's greatest investment, You are  also your greatest investment. How do you mean?, you may ask. The holy spirit helps us achieve far more than we could ever do on our own, but if we aren't ready or willing in our hearts, God's will will be so so impossible to achieve. So, you listening to God's spirit as He speaks in your heart can achieve any feat you wish to. ANY, and I mean it. But even God cannot move through us if we don't have sufficient knowledge or lack hunger to know more.
Most people think that their wealth, children or a rich spouse are their greatest investments and they will 'help' them. As we all know, God  is in the habit of pulling down idols. What happens when you get duped or invest in the wrong market or that child or spouse dies or that rich fiancee walks away ? This isn't to scare you, but I say this as a wake up call for you (me included) on the importance of self development.
Luke 12:15 explains that what a man …
Be slow to speak.
But be eager to hear.
Be patient.
Be more understanding.
Make excuses for people's mistakes.
Give everyone a second chance. A hundredth chance. You never can tell when they may get it right.
Be open to learn. Be teachable.
Don't take offense. No matter how hard you are pushed.
Don't complain. You may miss the blessings.
The bigger the problem, the bigger your capacity! You are growing!
Love! Love! Love!

Lessons I have learnt in the last year. I hope they make some meaning to you. Kiss kiss
The greatest problem I have realized of the youths of my generation is that they leave almost everything to chance. And this can be contained in a song I find very silly;) .."Que sera sera, whatever will be, will be". This is not often so! The future belongs to those who are certain about what they want. It is what you want to be, that will be. Have and take strategic plans for your academics, business, marriage and all other things that matter to you. And when the opportunity comes, go for it! Even God blesses those who are ready for the opportunity. They have the capacity to handle the struggles and success.
Turn that song to a positive one by meaning that you shouldn't be scared of the future. For if you take your future by working hard, and bearing the burden that a youth should bear, you can rest in the fact that you've done your part, then depending on God to do His. And He will. Trust me He will. But the onus is on us to make effective use, and even doubling t…
Each man or woman must locate his or her Destiny partners. He or she may not be able to reach his maximum potential or make much increase if he doesn't locate them. I don't mean normal people. I mean friends, who are into you through thick and thin. Who empower and inspire you. Who are ready to work when you bring an idea. They will push it like their lives depends on it.

Normally, God will lead you into marriage with someone who has these distinct qualities.

You need God's help to locate your destiny helpers. And His patience to stay through thick and thin even when they don't leave up to standard. If you give up rather too soon, you may loose them. But if you inspire and believe in them, because you are their leader, and they are helping you, with time the fruits that come out of them will surprise you.
Because of request by some friends, am sending this today ({})
I remember one of my young friend who's married. She used to get into petty arguments with her young husband that all of a sudden, she viewed him to be irritating and 'dull'. As she communed with God, she realized she was giving the devil a foothold that will soon turn to a stronghold. So she looked into her husband 's eyes holding his hands, saying in tears "Jesse, what we have must work. I don't care what happens but it must work."
From that day she knew her faults. She concentrated too much on his bad sides instead if appreciating his good sides. All of a sudden, she had allowed  pride come in  just because she had her PHD in law and he was only a graduate of chemistry education. She had forgotten that it was he who stood beside her and encouraging her all those years they courted, believing in her. She felt her husband had to 'attain ' some standards before he could be submitted to…
