Ex beauty queen and trained pilot, Powede Lawrence, on March, 16, 2017 admonished young ladies who only pray for a good job and a husband to stop being selfish.
She wrote on her Instagram page; ‘
I noticed for a lot of young girls, we spend so much time wasting our youth, doing things that will take us no where closer to God, the only prayer point we take seriously is: “Give me a good job” “God I want to make plenty of money” The ultimate one being: “God I want a good husband” “Oh Lord God give me a good man” all some of us focus on praying fervently about is Husband! Husband! Husband! Not that these things aren’t important. However, you know what is more important? Living a purposeful life and making heaven at the end. Won’t it be better if we start having prayer points like: “Lord teach me better ways to serve you” “Lord give me the grace to use my gifts effectively” “Lord help me make heaven” “Lord start an unquenchable thirst for your word within me” It’s good to pray about marriage, very good, as your choice of a spouse can either bring you closer to God or take you farther away from Him. But don’t you think we are beginning to worship this concept? You waiting (waiting because you’re not looking, he’s looking for you) for a spouse shouldn’t be your motivation to serve God, you shouldn’t want to be married more than you want Christ.A desire for a relationship shouldn’t supersede your desire to make heaven. God didn’t bring you to this world so that you can get married alone, there are other things He brought you here for such as using your gifts to win more souls for Him and a whole lot more. Do you think your destiny is tied to yourself alone? There are people who your life is supposed to impact positively and aid them in achieving their own destinies so just imagine if your not living it to the fullness of its purpose. YOUR LIFE IS TOO SMALL FOR THAT TO BE THE ONLY REASON TO BE ALIVE ON EARTH, YOURE HERE TO INFLUENCE LIVES, DONT LIVE SELFISHLY. #the25thseries#writingjuicesflowingthismorning#advicetoallofus#womentalk’

Read her birthday message below:
“All through my teenage years, I struggled with insecurities, I wasn’t growing as fast as my peers, when every other girl in class was a C cup I was nothing close to an A cup, Iwas literally a “tom boy” cos I felt I didn’t have feminine features. I felt my ears were too obvious, I spent my entire secondary school years trying to make hairstyles that’ll cover them. I also believed my thighs were too big and not proportional to my body, I would starve myself just wishing they would disappear, I remember going for a runway casting and been told that I had to loose my thighs. I almost cried that day. I stood looking at the mirror for some minutes staring at myself, asking myself what I was doing…, From that moment I refused to let their opinion of my body define who I was. I was created uniquely, not to look like everyone else. From that day henceforth, I embraced my so called flaws, I realised beauty came from confidence within and if i didn’t see myself as beautiful, no one else was going to. You don’t need anyone’s validation to love yourself. No one is you, and that is your power. You’re beautiful in everyway. #the25thseries#madein1991alloriginalparts”
