There was something that I have been waiting for, for a long time. That kept pressing my mind. Slowly it conquered the nook and corner of my heart. There was no hour that I can pass by without the stress of sighing at my waiting. That is when I happened to come across Victoria Osteen's sermon. That set me free!! I started praising!! Go on reading, it might help you too :)

If you have heaviness on you today, if you feel trapped, overwhelmed, discouraged, frustrated or anxious, there is only one thing you need to do, and that is to open your mouth and praise Almighty God! Even if it's difficult, even if you don't feel like it, just open your mouth and begin to declare His goodness. Sometimes we have to stir ourselves up in the things of God.

Today, put on the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness (Isaiah 61:3). Set your heart and mind on the Father. Instead of focusing on your problems, focus on your God. Don't let worry get you stuck, but let praise get you through! Enter His gates with thanksgiving, shake off heaviness and embrace the peace, joy and victory God has prepared for you!

2. Scoop out the banana in the center, gently with a knife. Choose plantains that are not over ripen so that it is easy to scoop out.
