WHAT IS SITTING ON YOUR PRAISE?
By Gifty Ant
Till this moment, if you ask me what my hobbies are, ‘watching tv’ will be among my top 3.
I am one of those you could call ‘tv addict’. This is not because I am on tv. No. I just love watching tv.
But on 27th December, 2018, it suddenly dawned on me, that I have never watched tv at Adumasa. Yes, all these years I have been going to Adumasa, which is almost 6 years now, I have never ever watched tv.
In fact during this Christmas, I stayed at the little republic for 4 Days straight, without watching tv or listening to radio 🙆🏽. But I lived! I had a great time and it’s been one of my most memorable Christmas.
Meanwhile, as soon as I got back to Tema, I went straight to switch on tvs. Lol. The addiction hasn’t been cured😀🙆🏽 And oh Adumasa has uninterrupted 24/7 power supply, but the chief has decided not to have tv at the palace 🙄. As a tv addict, I had 2 choices. Decide to be miserable and fight over ‘why no tv’ and refuse to go with him to Adumasa, Or decide to find a way to make my stay happy with or without a tv.
I chose the later.
My dear one, what are you allowing to steal your joy?
What are you allowing to blind you of all the goodness of God in your life?
What are you allowing to prevent you from Thanking God?
WHAT ARE YOU ALLOWING TO SIT ON YOUR PRAISE?
If it’s killing you, if it’s harmful, if it’s demeaning and robbing you of your dignity, walk away from it. But don’t let it Sit on Your Praise.
If you have to live with it, if it’s not killing you etc, then please find a way to work with or around it.
We all have to endure some discomfort every now and then. We all have to make some sacrifices for the greater good.
Let it go. Don’t hold your happiness and Praise in ransom, because of someone’s indiscretion, selfishness, wickedness, dishonesty, unfaithfulness, foolishness etc.!!Don’t let it rob you of your happiness, of your progress, your opportunities, your blessings.
It is tough but it’s the only way you can live your life to the fullest.
In 2019, let’s try very hard not to let anything steal our joy or sit on our Praise.
