Hey, everyone! I know it has been a while that I’ve blogged! Caught up in the book launch preparations, travelling and just making the most of 2017! More info to come soon!
I just want to take this opportunity to thank those that attended the book launch on Saturday 22nd July 2017. It was my second book launch that I had! Pictures are up on my Facebook and Instagram! I am very grateful so far at how this year is going. We only have 4 months left to go! How are you going to spend yours?
In the meantime, I want to give a heads up to those that may not have been able to attend but would like to purchase a copy of the book. You can as it is on Amazon right now. Here is the link: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Completion-Perspective-Brokenness-Esther-Jacob/dp/1547280433/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1502034805&sr=8-1&keywords=completion+by+esther+jacob
I remember saying at the launch that it is okay not to have everything together, believe me when I say this. In today’s society, there is a slight tendency to look at our lives and want what others have, not understanding the underlying factors that came with the blessing. I know it is easy to look at what others have and desire it but it is crucial to appreciate what you already have and use it to its highest potential.
Yes, 2017 has had its struggles but that is what makes life meaningful. Do not ever write yourself off thinking that nothing will ever be possible. I have surely seen God’s authentic hand upon my life, even when I did not strive hard enough. It is important to keep your life in the preparation and the ‘expectation’ stage. When you expect much, you will receive much, when you expect little you will receive little.
How do you want this remaining year to end for you? Will it be the same as how it started? As for me, I believe that it will be different and influential towards others. Everyone has the right to succeed in their endeavours, but we must put in the hard work now. One key lesson I have also taken from this year so far is that nothing you have worked hard for will be wasted, and what is for you shall be for YOU! There are many distractions that will try to get the best of you, but learn to lay them down. It is easier said than done but the joy and freedom you get by being real with God about how you feel is not to be taken for granted.
Slow down and pray more. Think less and rest more. Do not compromise who you are for temporary satisfaction. Let God complete you in all that you do and remember that being broken is God’s way of showing His strength. Just to give a few nuggets from the book:
- Know your worth
- Never compromise who you are for anybody
- Know that it is okay to be broken as long as you don’t give excuses
- Don’t settle for less than you deserve
- Wait patiently on God and He will answer you
- Don’t leave God out of the equation
- Let Him be your focus 100%!!
- RESPECT YOURSELF!
- Love your flaws
- Cry if you need to…it cleanses mind
- Above all PRAY AND NEVER STOP!
