The Will to CHANGE....

Your Story taught me a lesson
Never to give in
On hope, my dreams, faith, or life in general
Your will to change inspires me
You sought to have a better life
Tired of living the mediocre life.

Late last year I met this young guy who had a story in which I saw the will of a person to change.
He was born and he also grew up in the UK. He grew up thinking nobody liked him coupled with the fact that his parents were separated so he knew little of a fatherly and motherly care. All they provided him was the money he needed to do the things he wanted The only love he seemed to find is amongst his friend who engaged in a lot of unwholesome activities. He had joined a gang. Gangs are not just meant for fun. He was exposed to gang fights, violence, drugs and other social vices. The marks on his body can tell a lot of stories

At a particular point in his life, he got to a point where he did not find satisfaction in the things he did, he wanted a change but knew nowhere to find it. He wanted to commit suicide but I believe it was God that made this impossible. The change actually started when one of his gang mate was killed and some went to jail for other offences. I really don't know how he escaped that. 
He then realised that his association with this gang would not change anything in him. He craved for a change but he did not know how. His environment was not helping either. All the influences were putting pressure on him to return to his ways. 
During summer in the particular yeah he came to Nigeria with his mum and since then has been around. It was an escape from the influence and his old ways.
Now starting a new life is not easy. Habit are not just things that we can easily drop. But with the help of God this guy got back to school in Nigeria. now he should be studying law in one of the universities.

He is doing very well now. He has his priorities right. He has the oppurtunity to live a life of affluence now but he has chosen not to. He now knows his boundaries and things that can influence him.
Things can change, change is inevitable
But note that change can be for better or worse.
The willingness to change, to life a better life is what moves me in this story. You need to hear him speak. He has been through a lot.
His story taught me a lot. For a person to say "I want to change", This  is a major step but dont stop at saying you must believe in the change. Can you remember the "Change We Believe in"  campaign of President Obama in the last American presidential election campaign? That was a great change in the history of American politics
I have not been involved in social vices. I don't have any habits I'm dealing with. So does that make having some things change about me easier? I don t think so.
The will to change is key. But the natural man resists change. He is used to having things work the way they are. He is used to the status quo.  Tell him its going to change you might just create more problems for him.
There are changes we can control and there are changes that we cannot influence the outcome.
We live in an ever changing world.
Only those with the will to change and are prepared for the change will weather the storm a change might bring.
Change is coming, Be prepared

What is your Perception of Change?

Confronting FEAR..

I'm confronting the fears that lie deep within me
I know it’s just a lie
A False Experience Appearing Real
Painting a vivid picture
Trying to validate its existence
In a bid to see me bow
And lose the strength I gathered in its absence

It actually seems like a real experience 
It tries; it really tries to weaken my judgment
It tries to suppress my motivation, inspiration and expectations
Telling me failure is inevitable
Telling me my goals, dreams and desires are unattainable
Telling me that hurdles, obstacles, mountains and challenges are unassailable

But deep within me
As small as it may seem
My resilience keeps me up
To my faith I hold strong
Telling me not to give up
Hold on
Even with the little strength and conviction left
As small as it may seem
I wont give up my faith
I wont lose my Mind

Written from an experience....

  For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. - 2Ti 1:7

Courage is not the lack of fear but the ability to face it

I would need your comments on this one. How do you control FEAR?
