COLOUR YOUR LIFE


“Encourage yourself that you are good enough to be the owner of your own storehouse. Colour your world; redesign your mental pictures about yourself! Dream big and manifest the dreams!”
Israelmore Ayivor

The older you get, the more the pages and chapters of your life increase. When you study the lives of successful people, you will find that most of them have personal stories of humble beginnings – where they struggled with being broke, sacked from work or faced difficulties in one way or the other.

However, one day something happened that revolutionised their circumstances; possibly they encountered someone who offered them a helping hand through some financial opportunities or support. It does not necessarily have to be a big event. It could be an admission to an educational institution or their acceptance by an organisation, which had previously rejected them or they revisited and succeeded at an old idea despite all odds and personal discouragement.

Whatever it was, they decided not to allow their circumstances to control or stop them from moving forward. Instead, through persistence and perseverance, they kicked their dreams into action.

When disappointments happen, we can decide to isolate ourselves and close all doors, leaving little hope for the rebuilding of our broken dreams. The thought of starting again may seem devastating and absolutely painful. When something bad happens, realise that it is not the end; sometimes it can be the best thing that ever happen to you.

Make up your mind that suicide is not a choice! Some have gone through worse things and have recovered from it. Some people even wear their stories on their bodies - like the man with the scar that continues to tell of the fateful night someone broke a bottle over his head during a late night argument.

These days, facial make-up can conceal unsightly scars and enhance your skin. In the same way, coloured pencils can add a touch of beauty to your notepad as you put your thoughts on paper. So if you find it too difficult to recollect any good memories from your past, do something nice - just add colour to the pages of your life by believing the best for your future.

My life goes on and I have decided to colour mine as I move on.

“Orange is one of God's favorite colors--- He stuck it right there between red and yellow as the second color in the rainbow. He decorates entire forests with shades of orange every autumn. It shows up in sunrises at the start of the day, sunsets at the end of the day, and in the glow of the moon at the right time of night.”

Good Morning Pastor. Thanks for the post. It's very inspiring to know that it is possible to move on, no matter what has happened. Life is a gift from God and should be lived with joy and gratitude, no matter what has happened. It will turn out for good. That's what the bible says. Thank you for your beautiful post. I look forward to more of these.

I love colors! I enjoy wearing colorful outfits and appreciate hearing the varying comments people usually have for the same outfit. I have learned that disappointments are actually opportunities to help us look at life from a different perspective. I thank our great God for being my guide as He lifts me from difficulties and I use what I learn to bless others. It is a blessing to see that you have decided to color your life. May God light your path even brighter, and help you see clearer and brighter (Proverbs 4:18) so you can continue to be blessed, and be a blessing to others. Have a fantastic day! Vanessa

Yes Pastor you are very right in moving on, at least it's better than committing suicide! Culture sometimes enhances our men abusing us in marriage because whatever they do we ladies are expected to forgive and forget which is good. But then how long can one continue to wait thinking the abuser will kne dau change and have some conscience and retrace his/her steps. I thank God for your life. I am happy you are safe and sound. You will continue to be my idol no matter what. Lots of Love

Thank you Pastor for that refreshing message. Indeed there is beauty in our lives. This reminds me of the gift a loving father gave his son in the Bible- Josephs coat of many colors that his dad Jacob gave him. I believe in a way it symbolized the various trials he (Joseph)would go through-even being buried, sold & lied on by his own brothers) all put together- the end product was glory, promotion, riches, reconciliation with his brothers & restoration. Our lives are precious in God sight like a gem- sapphire with many beautiful colors. Pastor- the glory of God in in you and all over you. Irrespective of what faces us God says " "I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness- Jer 31 v 3. Humans may let us down, but Gods faithfulness towards us continues forever. You are from a glorious city- full of beautiful colors- (Rev 21 v19), no wonder we all radiate the glory of our Heavenly Father. God bless you Pastor

Dear Pastor, Warm and precious greetings to you in the matchless name of Jesus Christ. Thank you so very much for sharing this inspiring stories. Like you rightly said, if we find it too difficult to recollect good memories from our past we should just go out and do something nice. And add colors to the pages of our lives. I will just do that. I have had difficult and challenging times that it is so difficult to explain or narrate to someone else. Have decided to Take it to God. I love you
