Grown Up Conversations – October 7 – Video

It’s October – Embrace the seasons of life – it’s only a season.

Today’s topic: The Village got Awfully Quiet

So many times, we ask God – ‘Why then has all this happened to me?’ Then the Lord answers – “Have I not sent you.” None of us on live an island all by ourselves. Growing up among the villagers teach us to lean on each other making us stronger. God never intended us to live like hermits.

Village life gives us purpose and meaning. When we support each other – incredible things happen. When we compete with each other – the village goes awfully quiet.

Relationships thrive best when there’s open communication. Our relationship with God goes the same way as we do in other relationships – communicate your feelings.

When we arrive at wanting answers to life’s unanswered questions listening to the clues and cues lead to truth. A clue is anything that helps to steer you in solving a problem. And the cue prompts you to know when to act.

When God allows you to take the lead in your village it means he has full confidence that you can get the job done. Leading a family requires you to have a forgiving heart and the fortitude of a solider. The courage to stand in the frontline of a village where the arrows can come from any direction. It requires skill in warfare strategies.

Can you save your family if yours is the weakest clan and the least in your generation? Absolutely! If God is with you! We can accomplish nothing without God.

African Proverb “When there’s no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you.”

May God bless all those who simply want to do better and feel better despite the pain and the load she carries. When you know your potential you become consistent and your vision becomes clearer.

Tunnel vision sees beyond where the village ends and shines the light where others may have fallen. Be strong and do not let your hands be weak, for your work will be rewarded.

Let’s light a candle for all the villagers who need a light to guide them through the dark times. Quote: “A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.”

Learn to appreciate every single person in the village. The village is a place where you don’t meet people by accident. There’s always a reason.

We are all in this together. When we understand that we are all struggling – there’s no competition. How we make others feel about themselves says a lot about you.

Someone once said, “People of vision see the invisible, hear the inaudible, believe the incredible, think the unthinkable, and do the impossible.”
