#Purposeful Living

Purpose And Visions (My Speaking Engagement Over The Weekend)

I met Grace for the first time at my Church, “The Oasis”, but I really cannot remember when exactly I noticed her personally.

But I remember that Pastor P (one of our pastors at Church) told me she had a blog and of course like attracts like so I tagged that at the back of my mind.
Then we had a mini get together in my prayer unit and I felt like gifting her my book “10 Steps to Walking In purpose”, so I did.
When I found out she is a corper who is currently serving, I sent her my book “Making A Difference With Your NYSC Year” with a plea for her to review it and that was how she found out that I do a bit of work in Secondary schools and with youths.
And little did I know that she was also feeling led to go into that area.
In her words, the book spurred her on to get into her NYSC personal project to work with youths.

Enter #PUSH Conference.

 

I and Grace..

Frances and Grace..

This last weekend, we all saw Grace’s dream to organize a conference for teenagers and youths come alive.
We were gathered at Satellite Town Lagos, to sow seeds of life into the lives of some young girls and boys and boy, it was Soooooo fulfilling!
I am certain that walking in purpose is the second sweetest thing ever (second to knowing the God who gives us a purpose in Him).

 

Grace invited me to speak on “Purpose and Visions” and the invite came at a time when I was feeling weary in Spirit and even though I was tempted to refuse, I didn’t want to let her down, so I simply asked God to fill up this empty vessel, AKA me, and He did.
I told Him with tears “I have nothing to pour out Lord, please fill me up and help us reap the lives of these young souls for you…”
And I have to tell you that God showed up in those conference days.

 

I am not even the organizer but I felt so fulfilled pouring out into lives so I can only imagine how Grace felt afterwards.
She will be sharing with us on #PUSH Conference here on the blog on Friday.
So if you are someone who God has placed a dream in your heart and you are scared to walk in it, or plagued by worries of finances, support, helpers, etc, do make sure you stick around on the blog this week.

Remember, everything you see on here, has one aim alone, to inspire you to get God’s plan and purpose for your life and run with it.
I have found out that even my book on purpose, the end product isn’t to get money… its to cause an awakening and stir up hearts for Christ.
So I walked into PUSH conference with some copies for sale and suddenly felt like I should give them out for free (God set me up, because if He said so when I was at home, maybe I wouldn’t have carried them to the conference, lol).
But I obeyed of course and what we had was my heart just being so full, and when I heard some of the girls say “we should even use this for devotion, etc”, I just saw myself raising up a prayer to God… to be able to give out the book on purpose to young people everywhere. TO THE NATIONS. TO THE NATIONS.

Signing copies of the books...

Signing copies of the books…

I am certain God is going somewhere with this revolution to awaken hearts to His will and purpose for their lives.
I pray we all join up on this fast moving train.

I managed to get a video of me speaking at the conference and you can watch it below or at my Youtube channel HERE
I hope it also stirs up something on the inside of you.
