PEACE — April 19, 2016

PEACE

Amongst the numerous lessons I’ve learnt in recent months is “The Ability to Stay Calm Amidst Troubles” and I’ve learnt to pray for Peace over everything because surely times will come when it looks like you can’t handle it or go further and the only thing you’ll need is to stay strong and calm in the midst of the storm comforted with the peace of mind that that phase will pass too. We need to know that Peace ain’t the absence of trouble but freedom from fear, worry & anxiety in the midst of turbulent situations. Peace is that feeling of courage a warrior possess right at warfront neither because he is winning nor because his army is stronger than the enemy but fearless because no matter what he’ll stand tall at the end of the war. Peace is knowing all will be well even when it doesn’t look it. Peace is a lifestyle I’ve come to choose for myself.
God bless the day I came across these verses;
John 14:27,  “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not  as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your  heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid”.
John 16:33, “These things I  have spoken to you, that in Me you may have  peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but  be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

Peace out✌

Feminist; The Social Misconception II — April 13, 2016

Feminist; The Social Misconception II

In the last post I started a discussion on the misconception on who feminists are. I’ve read on some feminists and seen some who have great families with a wonderful lifestyles and I’m like someone needs to correct some societal notions on who these people are. I won’t deny that there are some extremists but I’ll like to talk on the ones who knows how to balance and rock it.

  We have women in almost all fields if not all; Politics, Law, Aviation, Fashion, Health, Finance, Military, Sports, Entertainment, Academics, Defence, Engineering, Programming, Agriculture, just name it. I don’t get the reason for the misconception about who a feminist is, this is just a woman who knows better than to waste her gifts and talents tending to only home when a lot of people are out on the street whom she can help make life better for. She is wise enough to take care of home and also smart enough to live a purposeful life. I respect men, in fact, i am not a bra burning extreme sort of feminist, I don’t even agree with a lot of opinions and anger towards men, but I do have sense enough to know I wasn’t meant to be controlled by a man, other than the big guy upstairs that created everyone.

     I know to pursuit my goals, actualize my dreams and be the best at whatever I do. I know to love and be loved, to care, to be submissive, to live like I mean it and succeed. I have God’s auction so I know all things and being his daughter I have the call of living a purpose driven life on me. I know I deserve whatever I want, every available opportunities & rights and it doesn’t just end with equality of gender but the equity of gender where there is fairness and impartiality at every strata of life.
I am an EMPOWERED WOMAN!

Thanks,

Feminist; The Social Misconception — April 8, 2016

Feminist; The Social Misconception

     Feminist, according to Oxford dictionary means; A person who supports the belief that women should have the same rights and opportunities as men. Even from this definition I still don’t get the reason for the social misconception. These are women with goals and purpose. Women who believe in the working together of both sexes to bring about a safer and better world. I believe we are in a generation where women are breaking ground rules, making things right and giving great support to men.
I totally don’t see the point in hating a woman just because she’s got dreams and opinions of her own. She’s got mind and brain to think, she can feel and see, she is talented and hardworking, she is bold and courageous, why then should she be reduced to a sex figure just because of her gender and social expectations. Some people even hate the idea of a woman being in a superior position or taking a leading role, last I checked the contribution of women to the world positively can’t be overemphasized. Is it the listening hear, the soothing words, the caring hands, the comfortable shoulders, the intelligence, the beauty, the ability to multitask, the reader, the leader, a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother and with all these, women still contribute their best.
You’re the most beautiful of all God’s CREATION and you’re PRICELESS. . .

Note: I wrote this piece for a women website sometimes in Feb and I thought I should share it on my blog too. I’ll submit the remaining part later in the week.
