All I want for Christmas 6


We know Tallen. She’s a part of the ganaijachic family so she really needs no introduction. I’ve reblogged one of her posts and its on ‘Love’ so ‘Love Someone’!

Yesterday’s quickie also has 10 ways to love so enjoy! 🙂

In my little experience and from my observation, I’ve come to see that people are really hurting, lots of people are in a desperate search for love, acceptance and a sense of belonging. Many people are depressed and have heavy hearts because they have no one. This is sooo ironic because there are about 6 billion people in the world!6 BILLION people walking on the surface of the earth and yet, 1 out of 5 people are depressed because of loneliness and the feeling of being unloved. Suicide rates are increasing annually and one of the major causes of suicide is because of this same thing- loneliness and depression!

What am I trying to say here- it’s time for you (yeah, you reading this) to show someone else love. Yeah, I know you’ve got personal issues to deal with but I’ve come to see that we solve our issues best…

2012 to 2013


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 3,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 5 years to get that many views.

All I want for Christmas 5


JOY – Today you guys have me to deal with! 😀
Do I need an intro for myself? Hehehe … Y’all know me (at least to an extent) and love me (I hope 😦 at least a lil’)! And that’s all the intro I’ll do … Enjoy 🙂

———————————————————————————————————————-

You already know I’m talking about JOY! Growing up JOY was defined as Jesus first, Yourself last, Others in between. I was vehemently against this definition – I mean how do you put others first all the time and expect to be happy! That’s the main problem most of us have – What’s the difference between being happy and being joyful?

Happiness is a feeling. You can’t help it. It is determined by the environment and circumstances. Joy on the other hand is there no matter what happens. Joy is a byproduct, an additional benefit, not the end in itself. It is this feeling of contentment despite what life throws at you. It is closely entwined with peace. Like peace of yesterday, you have to be in Christ to experience true joy and in its fullness. It flows into and grows within the person whose life and energies are not focused merely on being joyful!
You don’t chase joy. It is something that you either possess or don’t. If you’re chasing it, then you don’t have it. Joy is not the product of the natural mind but the product of the Holy Spirit. As it is not a product of the natural mind, then looking for it outside the guidance of the Holy Spirit will produce poor counterfeits, if at all any, of what God is and desires to be in us.

Back to my elementary definition. We’ve covered ‘Jesus first’.Joy also involves selflessness. You cannot truly be joyful if you are selfish. One thing I learnt today is that the more you hoard, the worse you stink. Let me explain – A lagoon may stink because it gets water from all sources including gutters that overflow but as it doesn’t give any out, the debris accumulates and it stinks. Be giving and loving and selfless and joy will flow. Ever heard the saying that ‘If you want to feel better about something, help someone.’, paraphrased of course! That covers ‘Others in between‘. Ultimately you have to be in the equation. I mean who’s gonna experience the joy?

This is a lil’ off the top of my head but remember joy’s a decision. You have to choose to remain joyful!

Okay that’s it. You read my thoughts all through so I’ll just summarize all I’ve said:
J – Jesus first
O – Others in between
Y – Yourself last

Have a great week!
