Every Successful Person Has A Painful Story, So Never Give Up.


Without risk no reward

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. Excellence is not a skill. It is an Attitude. A healthy attitude is contagious but don't wait to catch it from others. Be a carrier yourself. The suit a Pastor wears is not what makes him a shepherd,but the needs he and his ministry are meeting. The seat you occupy in the church does not make you a shepherd, but the needs of the flock you are meeting!

When you are unteachable, you hinder yourself from learning what you need to know to succeed. But staying teachable in every area of ministry will help you become the best you can be in fulfilling the call of God on your life. You can learn many valuable lessons from experienced ministers who are established in the Word and well-acquainted with the Holy Spirit. If you want to walk closely with God and learn to minister in His power,be teachable and open to instructions. For the rest of your life and ministry,make every day an opportunity to learn something valuable in God!

Anyone who spends time regretting the past, loses the present and risks the future. Oh yes, the past can really hurt. But the amazing thing is that, you can either run from it or learn from it. I have grown to realize that History is a vast early warning system. Live life with no regrets and no resentments. Whatever happened in the past, forgive yourself and others. Choose love again.
                                                       
Between you and every goal that you wish to achieve, there are series of obstacles, and the bigger the goal, the bigger the obstacles. Your decision to be, have and do something out of the ordinary entails facing difficulties and challenges that are out of the ordinary as well. Sometimes your greatest asset is simply your ability to stay with it longer than anyone else does. Do what you can, where you are, with the little you have.

Success in the ministry comes when you learn to be faithful and committed,even when it hurts your flesh. For instance,you must be willing to go where the Lord wants you to go,even when you don't want to go there. If you are called to preach,you will have to be committed to preach the Word,even when you don't feel like it!

Celebrate endings for they precede new beginnings. Don't cry because it's over rather Smile because it happened. When one door of happiness closes, another Joyous one opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us. Living a consecrated Christian life is a necessity,not a luxury. All your Bible study and praying won't profit you if you don't live consecrated before the Lord,because you can't persist in sin and succeed in the ministry!

People will become spiritually sick if all you feed them is spiritual dessert. Sometimes people need to hear strong sermons on commitment and obedience! I have come to believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you can eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
                                                        
This hurting world doesn't need ill-prepared ministers who cause problems because they are still carnal and spiritually ignorant! The world doesn't need ministers who get off into error and become religious charlatans,using the ministry as a means of personal profit rather than as an avenue to help hurting people. So be sure you don't launch into active ministry prematurely. There are no shortcuts in God's training programme. RIt's the same way in the natural realm. There are not any shortcuts when it comes to learning anything worthwhile!  When you behave as if you owned the whole world; you are extravagant in your dressing and in the way you spend money,you are inviting poverty!

A school bell that sounds as a disturbance at 8:am also sounds interesting at 2:00pm is just a matter of time. So don't envy anyone. Not everyone walking fast has an appointment. Some have running stomach! If a rose smells better than tomatoes, It doesn't mean the rose can make a better stew. Don't try to compare yourself to others. You also have your own strength, look for it and build on it. All animals that exist, were in Noah's ark. A snail is one of those animals. If God could wait long enough for snails to enter Noah's ark; His door of grace won't close till you reach your expected position in life. Never look down on yourself, keep looking up. Remember that Broken crayons still color. Keep on pushing, you never can tell how close you are to your goal.
