Why you shouldn't tell

Some are brilliant but can't pay tuition, some can pay tuition but are not brilliant, some are brilliant and can afford to pay but have family issues. My point is that everyone has a challenge at every point. It could be one's career, education, relationship, health, loved one,... The difference is how each person responds to these challenges. Some people choose to get so overwhelmed that suicide becomes an option. Some choose to take the depression route and become patronizers of B.P. medication. Some are known more in places of worship than in their residential areas and offices as they choose to abandon their homes/offices for every religious program. You should watch where you go in the name of looking for God before you get more than you bargained for and get yourself into bigger trouble. You also shouldn't abandon yourself, family and career. Balancing is key.

But of course, God is the answer to our challenges. He is the one we can tell everything and allow to play his part. With him, we can relax fully knowing that everything is in control. We still have our part to play. Like studying for exams or working hard. The whole essence of this post is everybody has issues. Stop telling yours to everyone that has ears. Stop looking sad and dejected. Why do you let people keep asking you "what's wrong?" There may be some people that have to be told. If someone can't help solve the issue or pray along with you, why are you informing him/her? It may not be a secret but it's private. Later you won't let us rest with your insultive and heavily pregnant updates on bbm. Did you expect that your privacy would be respected when you can't respect it yourself? Please calm down, talk to God, make out plans and keep smiling, genuinely.

My next post is going to be on Yoruba traditional weddings, owambe somethings. I assure you, you want to read about it from an Ijebu babe #IjebuTooSabi. Thanks for reading bloghearts, do say hello in the comment section. See you on Tuesday. All my love, Anuoluwapo.

Yes ma'm. So on point. We all have challenges in one area or the other and just as the writer said, lets be balanced and ensure we relay it to God.
One scripture i love to use at such times is Phillipians 4:6-7 (Message Translation)

Don't Fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. Its wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.

Interesting and enlightening. I am not one for status updating but I do vent ALOT. Nope I don't tell people my real problems but I do offload everyday nuances not because I need someone to tell me that my former BFF is a backstabber and how to get back at her; it just puts things into perspective for me so I can act civil when we run into each other : - )
