Freedom is nothing but a state of mind. Would you still be happy and content if all your privileges were taken from you? Could you still count your blessings if all you had was your breath to count on? Would you still fight for what you believe in when you lost it all? What is your heart focused on? Is it to please God or man? Is it really so that to be successful in God's eyes is to attain success via money, status, or any other worldly pursuit? The mere fact that God made you means you are a success, he is God after all. I think it's sometimes important to remove our dependency on the world. We are not here to attain things, we are not here to gain popularity either. We are here to fulfil our purpose, those tiny seeds that God placed in us at birth, that we were meant to grow.We were meant to be unbounded by the shackles of this world and to seek joy in God.

Sometimes we get lost though, and definitely, there is a huge difference between knowing the path and truly living it. Yet most even knowing that they are not on the path will not even flinch to change. The tides have always been in our favour. I have come to know that even in my darkest hours there has been love revealed to me, when I cry a smile always emerges, when there's chaos in my atmosphere my calmness is always constant and I'm grateful for it all. I'm grateful because even in the darkness times I know God has a purpose behind it and that I can trust that because he is love and so all he does is out of love for us. It ought to be noted that no matter where you are at, you are not irredeemable, you can choose to be free and live according to his plan.I too have been lost before, but maybe my lost is not the same lost as yours, either way we have all tasted what choking is like. I'm pretty sure none of us what to go back to that! So let's lay our troubles down, surrender  our entire  being to him and allow him to fill us with his saving grace.

We ought to be grateful. We are such a small part of the whole universe, but each of one of us is as necessary and vital as any other because God says it is so. We must be grateful for the opportunity to live by the highest truth, the very truth at the core of our existence which is love.  I don't believe in fear, I feel like believing in such is limiting our potential. Not that I am saying I am completely without fear, it's just that if love is pure, if it is whole and all- encompassing than it can have no opposites, love is everywhere, and so no one can be left out of the equation.

We must be grateful because our time is limited, our bodies finite, our beauty temporary, our knowledge and worldly wisdom is subject to change, our possessions cannot be carried to heaven but the love we have for God is eternal and the love he has for us is beyond eternity. Rest assured that whatever the situation, circumstances, predicament or challenges that face you at this very moment, you have earned the divine right to be where you are. It has been made  perfectly clear that you can handle the hard stuff. As you navigate and swerve through the challenging  places, right now is where you have the opportunity to demonstrate how much you have grown in spirit.

When God laid out the plan for your life, He put greatness in you. He put creativity, strength, determination, everything you need to fulfil your destiny. All you need is already with you! Don't focus on adversity; focus on God. You were created to thrive and to live an abundant life. Take the leap and know that God is positioning you for greatness. How to make your dreams happen? Wake up and show up. Surrender your life to God, let go of all your attachments to the end result because love is all that's needed. If we were to simply begin a practice of gratitude in our everyday lives, we begin to notice all the abundance God has placed within us already, and so instead of manipulating  the world to meet our desires, the world raises up to meet ours. Begin with a grateful heart and abundance will follow.

The love you give is the love you live! Sometimes when we get too attached to the world and we rely too heavily on their opinions of us, we get lost, we start to loose faith in our power and potential. One thing to note is that if God himself created you- and he did, how can there not be greatness within you? How can you refuse to let the light God put in you, shine? How can you deny the world of your magnificence? How can you willingly  participate in your own slow suicide? The most good a man can do in his lifetime, is to seek God, choose to embody and express love always, to live by the truth he knows God approves of and to always stay grateful.
