In HIS Presence


Read: Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Meditation verse:

“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things” (Philippians 4:8)


THE POWER OF YOUR LIFE’S PURPOSE AND A HIGHER PURPOSE “Ask yourself “for the sake of what are you able to endure what? Focusing on a higher purpose helps you endure the present challenge? Your life purpose is the assignment you were created to fulfil. Your life’s purpose will serve as a medium for you to serve others, thereby helping you create impact and influence which will enhance your wellbeing. It will keep you motivated and energized, giving you something to look forward to each day, despite the difficulties around you. It will spark off your creative juices. There are no limitations to what one can accomplish in the place of his or her assignment, because you are doing work that you were created for. It will enable create multiple pathways in career and life.


THE OPTION OF THERAPY. If you are really struggling, seek professional help. Do not suffer in silence. Counselling gives you clarity, enables you to see things from a different perspective, helps you develop coping skills and set goals for moving forward. There is a place for prayer and a place for professional counselling by a psychologist, certified counsellor, or psychotherapist.


TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR LIFE. Be responsible for your life and actions. Own your experiences. Cherish the good, change the bad, accept what you cannot change. Strive to become financially independent. Avoid depending on others for your existence. If you do, they will control your life. Own up to your mistakes but don’t let them stop you. Accept yourself whole heartedly. Love up on yourself. Do not be afraid to ask for help if you need to.


Lastly, never ever give up, irrespective of what life throws at you. Keep trying to become, irrespective of the hindrances. There is a next level waiting for you on the other side of that challenge. So, do not give up. Keep going.


IN HIS PRESENCE is written by Oke Chinye.
Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest."

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:
Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.
