Timely Message To The Nigerian Students.
Our Heartfelt Letter to All the Nigerian Students.
Dear Nigerian Student, This is the period of strike and this is a perfect time for depressing thoughts to come up and an opportunity to make you feel useless, jobless, incompetent and not enough. But listen, I have God's word for you today, whatever your hand sees to do, do it with all your heart.
Most times we don't enjoy the present stages in our lives because we are too busy or eager to get to the next stage or because we are too busy comparing ourselves with others. Most of you are actually living your best lives but you don't even know because you are not paying attention to yourself. Now listen, most times the next stage you are longing for is in this current stage.
Guys, whatever the Lord has placed in your hands or simply wherever you find yourself do all you have to do wholeheartedly.
God is the rewarder of those who diligently do that which has been placed in their hands. Believe me everything will add up! Remember what the scriptures says? Deut. 28:12 - The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.
Now listen, it's the work of their own hands, like anything at all! So let's list out everything you are involved with or you are currently doing, give it all you got. If you are an Executive in a Body or an organization or company, give it all you got! If you are working as a School Teacher that's something really huge, give it all you got, if you are a writer give it all you got (Just be consistent in posting on your social media platforms, you never can tell the impact you are making), if you are at home and part of a local assembly or church give it all you got, if you are doing internship give it all you got.
This is the best time for you (male or female) to improve your cooking skills and learn to take care of the things in your care. Finally, if you don't fall into any of this category you will definitely be a student, it's a good time to cover, read your books.
Let me end with the wise words of my dear friend, "In life whatever stage you are in, enjoy it to the fullest." You never know what the next stage will bring and how busy it wil be. So if you are sure there is absolutely nothing around you can do for now, trust me it's a good time to rest. Stop sitting and crying about the next stage, pay attention to the one in your hand.
Don't let the Adversary have control of your thoughts, stop him from suggesting sad and depressing thoughts to you that is just part of his devices.
In Conclusion, Anything the Lord has placed in your hands do it with all your heart. Stop complaining, stop comparing yourself with others! Be faithful with that which you have, God has promised to bless the works of our hands and HE WILL.
