Hope is not a strategy, it is a goal!

There is a saying that “Hope is not a plan” and I totally agree. I say it is an end result, a goal. Hope doesn't just happen. A lot of work is required to keep hope alive. 

One of my favourite scriptures still remains Romans 15:13, it reinforces my belief about hope, it gives the recipe for hope as maintaining your joy and peace. Once you find what brings you joy and peace, create a plan to maintain those two at all costs on a daily basis.

I find joy in knowing that regardless of what my AUsome son might not yet be able to do at his age, he will be alright. My plan is to make sure that he is trying his best at all times and that he is happy...life is short. I also find peace in living in the moment. The plan is to appreciate and love him for who he is and not who he should be.

I’m very intentional about feeding my faith and starving my fear. Worry and fear of things that may never happen used to cost me my peace, I command my mind to think about whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and admirable. And all things that are excellent and praise worthy in Jesus name according to Phillipians 4:8.

I’m also now more self- aware that I know I thrive in non-toxic environment. Whatever relationship or environment that will cost me my peace and joy is just not worth it and got to go. 

To my Super AUsome Mamas, may the almighty God continue to give us the grace to create and maintain a daily plan that would enable us keep hope alive in Jesus name.

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

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

Faith: Believing is Seeing

I never really understood the difference between faith and belief until recently. I had always assumed faith was just the biblical way of saying belief, but I have come to realize that it is much more than that. You see, in my opinion, belief can simply be quantified as a Yes/No variable i.e, you either believe or you don’t.   However, faith adds another layer to believing. It’s all about how committed you are to what you believe. It is a continuous variable of which quantity matters, the question with faith is not if you have faith or not, it’s how much of it do you have?  Faith is always active while belief can be passive. You can believe in something and stay on the sidelines, but with faith, you can’t help but be involved, it takes effort on one’s part to get a larger quantity of it. “Talk is cheap” they say, I say belief is cheap. This point was well captured in the book of James 2:19, when it says that even the Devil believes that there is one God. To put it differently, belief i
