The Sammy’s are fine and blessed.

The Sammy’s are fine and blessed. I think we are going through the stages of losing our freedom to move around. We have come out of denial, we’ve stopped being angry at the government n the cirona, n we’ve accepted the situation. We are now in the process of negotiating. That is “if only” situation. But we’re also learning new skills.

Remember when Noah’s ark was locked, Noah n his family were very stressed because of the insults they received from the people outside. But they couldn’t come out because God Himself had the key to the ark. Total lockdown. So they accepted the situation. The rain lasted 40 days, but they stayed in the ark for more than 150 days for the land to dry up.
Patience was key as they waited to hear from God.(Gen.7:19, 21:24).

I belief while they were locked up for all those days, a lot was going on. They worked on their communication, they meditated on God’s word and reminded themselves on God’s promises. They gave hope to each other through encouragement.

Let’s make Jesus our refuge. God is our refuge and our strength, a very present help in trouble. We therefore will not fear though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea. Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with swelling thereof (Psalms 46:1-3).

This is the time to mend the family ties. Its time to study the bible, its time to read books, its time to learn new skills, its time to bake cakes n share recipes. Its time to ask madam Lilian Wanjuho to teach us to make mats( online). Its time to clean our houses, as well as declutter the house and put all the things you don’t need aside ready to bless someone. By the way physical decluttering helps declutter our minds. Basically meaning we sanitize our minds of all the heavy things that weigh us down. Making it easy to learn new things and love ourselves and others better.
Lockdown is the best opportunity we have to love ourselves better. An opportunity that we’ve never had since we were born. An opportunity we can’t afford to waste.

We are apart but not alone. We have the helper that we were promised. The Holly spirit. This promise, is still valid.

When you pray kindly mention my name. Mention the name of Sunday school child/children that God may remember them.
Have a blessed night. Love you all with the love of Christ

Covid-19, now what next to the youth?

Covid-19, now what next to the youth?

Young people are a special group in the society. In Kenya, the youth are the majority. In times of war, the young and youth were the ones who went to war. In this pandemic times, everybody is at war. But then, where are the young people? Where are our majority?

By now, we all know the basics of what Covid-19 is and the government and WHO has given various measures and directives on what is required of us, to stay safe.

Most of these directives have without doubt affected our social freedom. For a young person, not going to school, meeting with friends or social gatherings, being locked etc definitely fuels to other concerns eg depression, increased idle time to engage in vices, etc.

Now that we must comply with the directives, how can a young person survive these quarantine times?

1.) You are not alone
Its comforting to learn that, Covid-19 does not affect you alone (only). We are in this together.

So, open up and share the burden on how you feel about it to people near you. Get all the information you need about it. Ask questions.

Bible verses :
Hosea 4:6 – My people perish for lack of knowledge
Prov 5:23- we die because of lack of discipline
Job 36:12- if they do not listen, they perish and die without knowledge

2.) pray for peace and guidance

This is the time. Today is the day! It’s time to stop reading the headlines and start lifting our head and heart to the One who can do something about it( 2nd chronicles 7:14)

While it is good to be informed, it’s also overwhelming to consume all the media surrounding the current situation. Instead choose to use your time to remember the promises found in God’s Word

Other Bible verses
Matthew 11:28-30
2nd Pet 3:9
Phil 4:19
John 14:27
Psalms 139:2-3

3.) Do not fear, instead build your faith

Do not fear. God has not given us a spirit of fear but power (2nd Tim1:7). God is in control. Ours is to trust in Him.

As the Lord is in control of every falling sparrow, so he also is in control of every virus molecule. As Jesus said, “Fear not, therefore” (Matthew 10:31). He’s got this.

“Happy is the one who fears the Lord” (Psalm 112:1). It’s only when we take that feeling—a feeling that many of us are naturally having toward the coronavirus right now—and apply it to God that we find true peace, hope, and even happiness. He alone is a secure rock. He alone is huge and in control. He alone is to be feared. “Oh, fear the Lord, you his saints!” (Psalm 34:9)

Other verses :
2nd cor 12:9
……….

What you can do
1) engage engage.
Find something to do. Don’t be idle. Start a project (keep chicken), help your parents in the farm, write articles online, try a new recipe, bake, cook, etc. Don’t be idle.
2) encourage others
Open a whatzup group or Facebook page and invite your fellow youth and share. Encourage each other, share bible verses, bible trivias etc.

Conclusion :
We are where we are, in a time like this for a reason. Jer 29:11 says, God has good plans for us.
In the story of Esther 4:14, Mordecai nailed it when he said, “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to the royal palace for such a time as this” (Esther 4:14 NIV). God loved the Jewish people. And, he didn’t create Esther’s beauty and finesse for her and her alone. Esther was placed in a royal position to assist in the delivery of God’s divine plan.

What can you do, oh dear youth, in a time like this?

No part of our lives is untouched. God is in control of every aspect, whether we want him to be or not, and there is nothing that is not subject to him (Hebrews 2:8). And, the best thing we can do for our lives is to search for and surrender to his will.

God bless you.

POSITIVE THINKING

Different people perceive and process information in different ways. And this explains why similar circumstances will bring about different reactions. The meaning we attach to situations can either make us overwhelmed with negative interpretations, or lead to positive thinking. Positive thinking will lead to healthy and optimistic thinking; which causes a good mood. There are many benefits of having a good mood.

  • It enhances self esteem.
  • Boosts school achievement and work performance.
  • Decreases anxiety.
  • Helps maintain optimal social interactions.
  • Improves the immune system.
  • Speeds recovery from illnesses.

WAYS OF ENHANCING POSITIVE THINKING

Positive thinking must be an ongoing and permanent mental activity. It should extend to all life aspects. Consider the following:

  1. Positive thinking about self. Accept yourself as you are. Avoid comparing yourself with others. Accept your limitations and work on your areas of growth. Stop and avoid self deprecating thoughts.
  2. Think positively about the past. Accept the past knowing that you cannot change it though it may have contained quite unpleasant events. Blaming your past on your present is a waste of time and energy. Remember the past and enjoy it, your attitude will improve to a more positive one.
  3. Think positively about the future. The future can be changed with your today’s attitude. Thinking with confidence and hope about tomorrow increases the probability of a much more successful future. Always make plans to prevent negative events instead of becoming anxious.
  4. Think positively about people and environment. Not everything around us is perfect, but there are beautiful things and experiences. Try to understand other people’s problems and help them whenever you can, and your attitude becomes pleasant.

NB: Being optimistic does not mean being careless and irresponsible. Don’t fall into the habit of taking things lightly with the excuse of avoiding worry. Being optimistic is to avoid being overwhelmed with negative interpretations and being able to transform problems into challenges and to understand that something good may come out of adversity.

Filling our minds with spiritual thoughts can be a safe way to attain mental peace

SELF- ESTEEM

A few days ago, my friends and I were having a casual talk on how everybody in our society is behaving in unacceptable way but it seems right to everybody around. There is corruption in every institution, young people having multiple sex partners, church leaders involved in scandals, extra marital activities have been normalized, young and old abusing drugs and many more. I have been thinking about that particular talk and wondering what changed, or what is happening to us. One of the things that could contribute to these kinds of behaviors is low self esteem.

Self esteem is a way in which a person values self.  It is trait that develops from a very early stage in life. We tend to compare ourselves to those around us. We also tend to pick positive and negative messages from our primary caregivers which tend to shape how we view ourselves, and the price tag we place on ourselves. Positive messages like, you are beautiful, you are a brilliant child, you are a fast learner, and many more, instill confidence in a child. However; negative messages such as, Mary is better than you, you are a stupid child, you can never do anything right, your nose is too big and many more, tend to put a child down and lose confidence.

WHAT SELF-ESTEEM IS NOT

Good or high self-esteem doesn’t make one a bragger, or a bully. It doesn’t make one to constantly remind others on how important you are, how rich you are, how you are better than others, who your family is, how many sexual partners you have. It is not being self centered or being narcissistic, or proud. It is not putting others down, or belittling them to your glory and promotion. It is not doing all the wrong or socially unacceptable things to gain popularity.

People with low self esteem tend to compensate for their inadequacies. Because they were meant to belief that they are not beautiful or handsome, then they get into premarital sex or extra marital sex to prove that they are “loved”. They get into drug and substance abuse; they do things to prove a point to themselves and others, and to fill the empty gaps. They sad reality is that they don’t get any satisfaction; they end up feeling more inadequate, unworthy, and all the negative feelings. And they continue the self hurt. 

WHAT SELF-ESTEEM IS

It is knowing who you are, your strengths and your areas that need to work on to grow. It is the way in which we appreciate and respect ourselves. It is the balanced measure of valuing ourselves. It is asking for forgiveness. Not joking or mocking others, providing family support. It is emphasizing positive features in others. It is recognizing special needs of everyone, controlling your thoughts, keeping fit, forgiving yourself. Self esteem is an honest and positive look at everything that one is and has. It is the ability to ask for help in order to attain self worth and self growth so as to self actualize. This act represents the first step on the path to positive living within the society.

Finding and giving help to our parents, children, youth, leaders, and everybody around us on issues self esteem, will minimize cases of corruption and unacceptable behaviors in our families, churches, community and the government at large. Help and mentorship is available. We don’t have to be an immoral and bent society.

WHOLE PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT

Human beings have four (4) distinct components or facets. If you wish for a life of total health, then you must nourish each and every one of these facets. This will also help you develop as a person and increase your potential in life. You must avoid focusing on one aspect as this will end up with a significant imbalance. The four facets are;

  • The Physical
  • The mental
  • The social
  • The spiritual

1. THE PHYSICAL DIMENSION

This dimension is basic and affects all the others. It is the body image. It is what we first see in an individual. It calls for exercising every day, good sleep, health diet, and avoiding the use of harmful substances in to your body.

2. MENTAL DIMENSION

The brain directs all aspects of existence. Always give yourself mental tasks such as reading, study, critical analysis of issues, and deep conversations. Control your thought patterns and get into the habit of making effective decisions. Control your character through your thinking. All responsible behaviors develop in your mind.

3. SOCIAL DIMENSION

Nourish your social relationships. Devote time and effort to strengthen links with your family, friends, peers neighbors and all the significant others in your life. Good social relations prevent a variety of mental disorders. The joys and pains of life are magnified by the effects of relationships.

4. SPIRITUAL DIMENSION

Serious consideration of this dimension signifies the highest level of personal development. In morality, reflect on good and evil. In aesthetics, exercise a taste of beauty, art and daily cleanliness and orderliness. In the religious area, search for God, the higher power. Reconcile with your creator and enjoy a beautiful and lasting relationship, which is the essence of a beautiful life worth living.

PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH

Most of us love medication. Enormous number of families continues to take between five and eight different medications at a time every day. Yes many need them and perhaps cannot live without them. However; some people are addicted to all types of medications and take them even when not needed to.

It is more important to know how to live to prevent diseases than having great varieties of remedies at hand. Most diseases have their origin in the mind. We need to know how to harbor healthy thoughts, right attitudes, and noble feelings. This way we will be able to free ourselves from many physical illnesses, thus enjoying better health without needing to depend so much on medication.

Hatred, anger, envy, gossip, selfishness, resentment, anxiety, worry, and fear are real poisons for the spirit and the body as much as goodness, inner peace and trust in higher power are preservers of health. Adopting good habits in life is another way of preventing disease. We all learnt the habits that we have. If they are the source of our diseases, which are both physical and mental, then we need to unlearn them, and then relearn new habits that will promote wellness and wholeness.

Life Whisper services provides an environment where you explore your thought, feelings and attitudes so as to make the necessary changes to your wellbeing.
