Wholeness is not a goal to be achieved at some point but rather a spiritual and mental state to be maintained. Wholeness does not necessarily refer to perfection, it’s simply the outcome of knowing who you are, and walking in that confidently and consistently.

On a daily basis and in every aspect of our lives, we’re presented with opportunities to stand out as children of God or to be subject to the human nature and the weakness of the flesh.Choose to respond as the God begotten spirit being that you are. 

Our way of life should be a perfect reflection of our speech. It’s awful if we preach water to others and then serve wine to ourselves. True gospel is living what you preach and doing as you say. 

Let us align our mouths and hearts in one place such that we preach the gospel with two hands of proclamation & demonstration

Finding that one thing that will ignite your search for hope every day is the most crucial part of everyone’s life. So many times people just throw in the towel and just choose to give up on life.You’ve got to ignite that spark of hope every single day. Failure is not your portion.

We cannot give away what we don’t already possess ourselves. Therefore a truly generous person is always expecting more from God so that he has more to give to others. Selfish people only believe for enough to get by themselves. 

Survival living produces a mindset prone to selfishness because “just enough” leaves nothing for others. It takes faith to receive more from God. 

Consider how you would like to become a blessing to more people. That is a God-inspired desire. Have you ever seen a need that you wished some wealthy person would take care of? Become that wealthy person so you can address that need. 

A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal. To find the best way to love someone is not to change them but instead,help them reveal the greatest version of themselves. The strongest people make time to help others,even if they are struggling with their own problems. You will climb highest when you help others up. Helping others achieve their dreams,will help you achieve yours. This will surely bring you success.

You will only feel alive to the degree that you feel you can help others. By helping others,you help yourself. Do small things with great love. We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone!! You don’t need a reason to help someone. Helping a person might not change the world,but it could change the world for one person!!!! In helping others,we shall help ourselves for whatever good we give out,completes the circle and comes back. However, when helping someone starts to hurt you,you may not be able to help them anymore.

When we are armed with knowledge and fueled by passion, creativity bursts forth.
