Keeping Hope Alive

How does one keep hope alive after failure after failure or rejection after rejection? Feeling angry or down for a moment is a normal reaction. However, it is important for it to be just for a MOMENT. If not, you loose your PEACE and JOY.  Peace with one self and peace with people around you are so important that it is impossible to live a fruitful life if these essentials are missing. 

According to Isaiah 26:3, “God will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast on him because we trust in him.” And of course when you have that perfect peace, JOY comes from within, you get this in tandem with PEACE.  


Everyone has faced failure/rejection at some point in life, I have had a fair share of mine. At a point, I was even on a streak sef πŸ˜„. I flunked out of a doctoral program and had to take on a job in retail job stocking shelves with two Masters’ degrees. To be honest, I actually didn't mind the job as I am a firm believer that there is dignity in labour. My boss who I didn’t even say anything to about my education background just took a strong dislike in me and made it obvious that I didn't belong there. At that point, her rejection hurt because I was good at the job and went far and beyond to please her. In retrospect, her bad attitude towards me was the fuel that I needed, It motivated me to look for better and that was how I landed my dream job (πŸ€”at that time sha, this story is for another post).

Now to my ausome son, I shared about how much hope I had in the Nemechek protocol, but it made him start acting out in school that after a lot of complaints about the noticeable difference in his behaviour, we decided it was best to take a break from it. The protocol may not be for us, but I have absolute faith that God wants my son to be healed and he will be in his lifetime πŸ™πŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸ½

To my Super Moms raising Ausome children, let’s fight to keep our peace and joy while keeping hope alive, may we continue to put our trust in the God of Hope and out hearts continue to overflow with an abundance of Joy in Jesus almighty name, Amen.

Always πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’• on my mind,

Welcome!

Image by Ron Smith Hope lives here! I am so excited that I finally have the courage to start a blog. I’m always a decade late with trying whatever is trending but like they say better late than never😊. The plan with this blog is to grow my christian faith by applying bible quotes/ lessons to simple real life situations. I’ve had my fair share of struggle with finding a sense of purpose in life, rediscovering my values and studying the bible to develop a closer relationship with God have all been instrumental to the overflowing of hope that I now feel. I’m motivated to inspire that same hope, even if it’s in just one other person. I’m πŸ’― convinced that the bible has all the answers to all of life concerns, the best person to ask about how something works is always the person who creates it. So, join me in discovering from the creator of life our “who”, “what”and “how” in life. Always πŸ’• πŸ’• on my mind, Tejuola

Super Autism Mom

I am neither a writer nor a good story teller and  I know this because I had never enjoyed being either. Normal me struggle with expressing my ideas both verbally and in writing. I’m a visual person I would often say... I understand graphs, pictures, maps and numbers. I’m also very comfortable with stating facts and research. And (Oh) boy! how much I love using concise words such as quotes and proverbs.   So why do I all of a sudden feel the urge to voice out my emotions...I believe it’s a mark of my healing or perhaps, a coping mechanism. I have bottled up so much over the years that I now crave the need to be light . I’m intentionally choosing to let go and completely let God by sharing my journey as an Autism Mom. My goal is to encourage someone else on this journey and like I always say if I’m able to inspire hope in just one person, then I’m fulfilled. Welcome to this page on my blog ...where I hope (no pun intended..LOL) to also raise an awareness about Autism Spectrum Disorder i

A L.O.V.E Mindset

I stumbled upon a well researched article on how churches are failing to support families with children affected by Autism. This wasn’t surprising at all to me as I have had several encounters where I was asked to leave the congregation because my son was too loud. In fairness to other members, they have a right to a quiet enjoyment of church service. But what ends up happening to mothers like me is that we stop going to church altogether, souls that are meant for christ become lost. That was my case for a while. When churches don’t acknowledge “Autism” and all other forms of developmental disabilities or are misinformed, they fail to accommodate. While we all need prayers and healing, the accessibility of church is of immediate importance to families with special needs, “Faith without works is dead”(James 2:15-17). Providing additional supports for example through a special needs department, signages welcoming people with disabilities in the congregation and above all, encouragement b
