ACHIEVEMENT THROUGH GOD

Year in and year out we always set goals and resolutions that we hope to achieve throughout the year. But as the year goes by, it gets very difficult for us to follow through with our plans and that can be very frustrating as we discover that achieving goals is more than just saying or writing what we desire; but being committed, focused and consistent. To avoid the frustration, there is a better way for us to achieve our goals and that is through God and there are scriptures that can lead us in the right direct. Let’s look at Philippians 3:14; “I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” 
We have to desire the best so that we can be able to train and exercise harder during the offseason so that we can prepare our minds and bodies to reach our goal for the upcoming season. We have to pray and be disciplined through the waiting period in the God will take us to the Promised Land (the achievement of our goals).
In order for us to achieve our goals we have to make sure that they are in alignment with God’s words and understand His vision for our lives. We should not look at goal setting and achievement in the eyes of the world as that would be defying the laws of our Father. When we set goals according to God’s vision for our life, we will be more focused, creative and be energised to keep pressing on. Most importantly we will be less stressed. 
Achievement through God need us to have deepest desire which will give us energy to carryon. Without desire we can’t really achieve our goals because then they become wishes which never come true. We have always be taught that we can have anything that we want, but truth is, we can’t have everything we want but only what we need.
We must have enhanced faith, not only to belief but to know that all that we do will come to pass. We should expect it and it will happen. The most important characteristic is to change our habit. Make achieving our goal a priority/a habit. We have to keep working on it until it comes to pass. We have to maintain our reality. We also have to cheerful put effort into achieving our goals because we are confident that the rewards will be worth it. Our intention can literally our lives as we make our goals into a reality as our minds will be 100% focused into achieving your goals.

WRITING FOR CHRIST ACCORDING TO HIS GIDUELINES

What does it really mean to write for Christ? How exactly do you write for Christ? Does your story have to be out-right religious or blatantly about God in order to write for Christ?
Writing for God is all about reflecting on his character by Glorifying Him. God is everywhere and anywhere at any given time therefore we don’t always have to state the obvious when we write.
Before we even start to write the article, we should think about the truth. We should be able to tell a story without being fictional but only using your skills and techniques to get the message across. Yes we should be creative but we shouldn’t beat down our storyline. Furthermore, we should pray for guidance before we even start writing your story. We should bring out spiritual or character building principles that the reader can put into practice their life.
Our work has to be good quality and perfect just as our father is perfect. Of course, we will never be able to attain perfection, and getting frustrated with our work will not help things. Sometimes, the only way we can get better, is to let ourselves practice. Practice is the only way we can get better. So we don’t have to be perfect to reflect God. We just have to do our best, and always strive to get better, never resting on our laurels. That honours God.
We should also reflect God through our demonstration of His truth. Anything that is true is of God. Jesus said He is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). God is described as “the Spirit of Truth,” (John 16:3). God is truth; therefore, by writing about and displaying truth, we are writing for Christ; displaying the real and ultimate truth. 
By writing a story with a moral showing that truth is truth, regardless of what people believe, you are writing for Christ.
By writing stories displaying and promoting Hope, Joy, Courage, Perseverance, Humility, Faith, Altruism, Peace, Mercy, Grace, etc. we are writing for Christ because we are reflecting the character of God. We may or may not include God in our writing, by name, but by displaying His truths and saying, “this is true,” we are putting God in our writing, and we are writing for Christ.
Also, if we strive to write for Christ, we will not be writing alone. If we abandon ourselves to God, then He can use us for His glory. He will guide us as we craft and develop our stories.
If you think about it, there are infinite ways to write for Christ and to glorify God. By writing for God, glory will not only be brought to Him, but we will be taking part in the spreading of God’s kingdom on earth. We can spread truth, and free the culture from its pervasive lies.
The beautiful reality is people are starving for these kinds of stories, and not just Christians. Truth and reality are far more wonderful than the fake. By combiningGod’s truth with a high quality story, we can write novels which deeply impact Christians and non-Christians alike.

FAITH

I have found that when I lead with my emotions, I make not so good choices and end up in situations I have never asked to be in. When you are in these situations you are supposed to call on God and have faith that he will get you out of this situation.
I can’t lie, I find having faith is the hardest thing to do in the world to do. Why? Well simply put when you are so used to adhering to ways that you have become accustomed to. You find it hard to break out of your old ways especially when you are consistently hearing from people that you are never going to change and always telling you NO! 
However when the world tells you no God tells you YES. Yes to everything that you want in life but you have to have faith to believe he will do for you. He is your father, he is your provider. I have never thought that i would be writing these blog posts that I am writing and praising God the way that I do in each post. There is an amazing feeling that comes out of this. It is kind of like when you have a crush on some one for the first time and have the only feelings and butterflies in your stomach. Yet it’s a sense of not knowing that feels really great! God does miracles and signs and wonders. I want to see miracles that is what I want to see! I want to see him do things that people do not think it is possible for that to happen 
Why is the world so used to this? It is because society made you that way. We are not of the world, we are not supposed to be that way that is why we are supposed to have faith when all else fails. I get it, it’s not easy but you have to faith because with out faith how is God supposed to answer your prayers. All he wants from you is to have faith and believe he will do everything else so just have faith. Trust me he hears you even when you think he doesn’t he does. 
What does the bible say about having faith? 

Now there was a woman who had been suffering from hemorrhages for twelve years. She had endured much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had; and she was no better, but rather grew worse. She had heard about Jesus, and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, for she said, “If I but touch his clothes, I will be made well.” Immediately her hemorrhage stopped; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. Immediately aware that power had gone forth from him, Jesus turned about in the crowd and said, “Who touched my clothes?” And his disciples said to him, “You see the crowd pressing in on you; how can you say, ‘Who touched me?’ ” He looked all around to see who had done it. But the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came in fear and trembling, fell down before him, and told him the whole truth. He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease.” (NRSV, Mark 5:25-34)

The story of the woman with a hemorrhage also has a lesson. If we approach God with humility and put our confidence and trust in Him instead of in worldly things, our faith will enable our spiritual healing and salvation.
John 3:16 is one of the best known and most beloved verses in the Bible, but it must be read in context to appreciate its full meaning and implications:

14 And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.
16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.
17 “Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. 18 Those who believe in him are not condemned; but those who do not believe are condemned already, because they have not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
19 And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. 20 For all who do evil hate the light and do not come to the light, so that their deeds may not be exposed.
21 But those who do what is true come to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that their deeds have been done in God.” (NRSV, John 3:14-21)
