Inspite of - Despite of - Still Think Positively!
Ping! Ping! My BlackBerry Messenger goes off. A young lady needs some advice and I didn't need to schedule an appointment, I could have answered there an then. While reading through her statement, my eyes gradually creeped to the top of the messenger window, where it held the person's current BB name and Personal Message viewable to all her contacts.
Her BB Name and Personal message caught me by surprise. I immediately admired her message displayed to the world. It caught me by surprise indeed, because I usually don't see many young people displaying what she did. I seldom go through such names as it's time consuming. When I have a bit of spare time and I scroll through person's BB names, many times they show how a person is feeling at a particular time, some of them are meant to send a message to others and some just display someone's name.
Hers was different. It had a well written promise to God that I wouldn't share here. What I was happy to see though, is that Karla Liburd was THINKING POSITIVELY as a young lady full of Godly dreams and goals
As she closed, she mentioned to me that she kept a journal and wanted me to read it and not keep it to myself, but use it to encourage others too. This is what it said.
"Jesus calls us to be examples for Him. The sad thing is that not many people are willing to step up to the plate. It's no ordinary task, but it's something honourable and totally worth it. I'm going to be an Example for Jesus so that others can come to Him. It's kinda like when a school teacher says, "Here is Karla. See how she is dressed? See how she behaves? Look how she always turns her work in on time. Look how she gets good grades too. Be like Karla." It's similar, but God wants us to be examples for Him, not for ourselves. God says, " See my child. She is doing what I asked her to do. She's not perfect and she'll never be, because only I am perfect. But's she's perfect enough for me through grace because she shows me that she loves me and I love her back. She is my Example of how I want my children to live. The good that you see in her is of Me. Do not worship her, worship Me. Come to Me and be an Example for others." I will be an Example for Jesus.
Here was a young lady, not doing what young people typically do on their phones or with their lives. She was setting her goals based on God's Example. She was thinking positively.
