The power of staying at the top.

There are times in one's life were it seems the whole world has come tumbling down on one person, and that's you. These best describes my experiences for quite sometime now. I felt  it really challenging that it seems there are no way its going to come to an end. It started with my finances; little wonder i didn't post article last month because it was quite challenging and money to buy air time in order to surf the net were rather 'plenty', if you understand what i mean. It started with a financial challenge on my business, i had made some financial loses that really affected the capital of my business. While i was battling with how to bounce back in business, the house where i lived was sold without prior notice by the landlord. So i had a challenge of little time to get a new place in a city where accommodation is quite expensive. While on these also, the mother of my precious daughter( my ex-woman) started breathing fire and was calling me all kinds of names because of my inability to meet up with my financial responsibility to my daughter. Believe me, it wasn't funny at all. As if that was not all, the the lady i had wanted to settle down with called it a quit on the relationship. That was an emotional challenge that had me really thinking and almost asking so many questions without an answer fit for the situation. With this i felt i was fast loosing grip on everything i thought i had firm grip over. The challenges as usual affected projects that i had thought i would either complete this year and those i had wanted to see its 'takeoff' at the beginning of this year. These and many more were my challenges or rather as many may put it "troubles".
Challenges comes in the life of every one as long as you breath. Roger Crawford once said "being challenged in life is inevitable..." You can't wish them away or pray them out of your way. In fact Jesus says"offenses will come...", meaning challenges are bound to come weather i or you likes it or not. But the question that comes to mind is how do i handle them if i can't wish them away?
While i was facing all of these challenges, i never allowed negative confessions of the situation on ground to come out of my mouth or even allow my mind wander in the negative direction, nor start complaining to all that cared to listen. Though i was tempted to sit down and brood over the whole scenario. But when that happens i quickly forgive myself, then go to God in prayer, asking for pardon over the sin of 'worrying or living in anxiety'. A times also i had great challenges controlling both what comes out of my mouth and what i ponder over especially what i even read on the dailies and watch on television. I consciously spent my time reading and praying  the scriptures that relates to my challenges, and one of such is the scripture that reads "weeping(or challenges) may endure for a night but joy (and triumph) comes in the morning. And i did equally spend large portion of my quiet time thanking and praising God for all he has done both in the past and the present: as many i could recall. This i have been doing and i as i kept on doing them i started seeing some rays of light in the once end of the tunnel that was very very dark. Do you know that even my family and friends never knew i was going thru some challenges, and how? You might want to ask. I have never worn the challenges on my face, neither did it affect my attitude towards all that i relate with daily. I was always living in joy. I never let troubles, obstacles, barriers or challenges rob me of my peace or joy. If we really want to be triumphant in life, we must never let anything rob us of our joy.
A man by name Bela Davies said "the key to life is accepting challenges. Once somebody stops doing this, he's dead." The fact is, you are not the only one going thru a challenge. So be bold, be joyous, take courage, maintain a positive outlook and positive confession of life and the situations around you and you will definitely pull thru.

I do consciously and often say things like "i will come out of these challenges with great laughter, there can't be loses in my life. Jesus died young so that i will live long, so therefore i can't die young. Jesus also became poor so that i would live in luxury. No weapon of financial, marital, material and business failures fashioned against me shall prosper. All things, including my relationship works together for my good". These and many more were my constant and continual confessions. I'd advice you do the same and have the belief that your night season is gone, and your morning is finally come.
