Poverty mindset Vs. identity in Christ mindset

We all go through the different  season of life,  I remember  a time when I literally have nothing on my resources, a time when fasting  seems to be a fad for me , sometimes having nothing to eat for days, when having a meal a day was my most awaited.

It was a season of walking from home to school, from school to church, from church to home. And all I can remember I was doing only two things, first singing praise and worship songs , Second talking to God, At the start of that season while walking I found myself battling with him on why I’ve have to go through it. I was mad with the situation, the hardship, the hunger and demanding his breakthrough, provision and deliverance.

Challenging times  like  it will either make you or break. When the situation is saying give up and leave your dream, you’ll never be able to achieve this with your circumstances. You don’t have anything.

But the voice of truth was far more powerful than all  of those through running on my head. One thing God was pointing so clear so powerful, I am your father, you are my son! your are  co-heir with Christ, you are royal, holy, chosen, destined to do good things, I have all His good promises in the bible.

Faith is recognizing the facts, but holding on to the words of God. Its resolving to trust in him completely, holding on to the identity He said who I am and His mighty promises.

Since most them are not fully acquainted with each other yet, we decided to start with an activity, dividing them into  3 groups , competing with each group with a representative of their choice. The idea was about sharing  3 truths about themselves and 1 lie. they started as group first, before competing with the other team. Image

With me are fellow life coaches   passionate in reaching the next generation Rose Jesrusalem and Marics  Gelladuga who  was effortless connecting with the students and facilitating the games.

I had the opportunity to talk about VISION,  challenged and encouraged them to dream big and help identity those hindrances from reaching long term and short goals as individuals and as a team.

After the discussion, we went back to small group and talk about their vision in life and identifying those that are stopping them from achieving their vision.

After the activity we had the opportunity spend more time to get to know some of the students.

Identity: Salt and Light

 

Who are you? and who do you think you are?

Our generation is face with the challenge of identity crisis, it is beyond sexual orientation brought about the influence of media, the internet, freedom of expression and so soon.

13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
