Pain pass on purpose

Still inspired by the message “ I am carrying nations”

Your pain will give birth to your purpose(TDJ), so today I will be sharing with you in part my pain, passion and purpose.

………………………………………………………………….

It always begins with a story . . . . . . . .

When I was 5 years old my mother told me I am going to big school, my imagination went as far as the cities and places I had never seen before, all I knew was my mind saw “transformation from poverty to well-being “my family becoming well, in each and every form, my community, my people  . . . I saw myself using whatever information, tools and knowledge to impact the community in a positive way . . . . . I knew right there on that day that I have a heart for community……. I felt it deep inside me, at the age of 5.

Amazing thing is this is here is what I also said verbally on the day “I am going to be rich and I am going to build my mother a house , I said this out loud, running and circling what was then a 3 rooms shack that we lived in as a family. . . . . this was  January 1989 right after my mother had registered me at Warden Primary School.

My first pain – experiencing the kids who couldn’t catch up with the other kids at school with regards to grades. That gave me a lot of pain and I always tried to make a lot of effort throughout my school life to help, tutor. This is my area of pain that made me understand that my calling is a teacher. This is at the core of what I do to date . . . and placing people in the areas of their strength is what I thrive in as I manage teams and lead people. There are no slow people, people need their strengths to be better placed/utilized, so that all of us can excel and thrive . . .

My second pain – I observed that I was just one of a handful of students that went to University from my community. In my second year I expected another genius student to join me and when she didn’t I was in state of stress. I had constant headaches and I just couldn’t believe it. This made me wonder what more can we do to assist and it drove a deep desire in me to want change that and this gave birth to an NPO and helping other students get the same opportunities. Giving people access is my absolute passion and when you lead teams and manage people, you must create that bridge that allows people to cross . .  . it’s a life long journey

………………………………………………………………………

These two pains that turned into passion and ultimately connecting to my purpose of “a well becoming society” have contributed to the person that I am today.

The environment continuously evolves but at the core these become my tools of service

I also know that God never puts any dream in a human being without guiding you through. The passion I have to teach my team members daily, to create opportunities for policies that enable continuous learning even in organizations continue to be at the center of my life. . . . . Why …. because I now have the authority to change things. This is why we get appointed into positions of power

There is a lot that I can share on these two pain to help you connect the dots , but here is what Dr. Myles Munroe has to say

.” In life, purpose is defined by the thing that makes you angry. Martin Luther was angry; Mandela was angry; Mahatma Gandhi was angry; Mother Teresa was angry. If you are not angry, you do not have a ministry yet. Myles Munroe

“You will never change anything that you are willing to tolerate” Myles Munroe

 

Pay attention to your pain. Sometimes you can even find yourself lonely in that pain . The reason is God has given you the tools to turn the situation around and not everybody !!!!

Pay attention to the things that you are not willing to tolerate. Seek the gifts and ask the Lord to show you how to help change the situation

Your journey is always yours alone don’t doubt yourself !!!!

 

Connect the dots and serve the Lord and His people with your life !!!!
