Chidinma’s Quotes

“Become more aware of what’s really worth your energy.”

“Learn all that you can but understand that you must learn from others without losing the core of who you are. Don’t get lost in the maze of life, and end up being different from what you were designed to be…”

“The devil cannot create! He has to use what is already created, he corrupts, disrupts, but cannot create. The wise woman learns his devices. Once you learnt what he’s trying to do, use your strength for positive purposes. Stop being seduced into using your abilities for what he’s trying to grow.”

“The harvest field that God wants to create is in your head. Amidst all your troubles, hold on to your field of dreams…”

“Enjoy who you are, there are some benefits that go along with being who you are and where you are, your father is the King and you’re his child.”

“Self-love! Self-care! Take care of yourself!”
