It was going fine initially, though the profits was not as big as I wanted it to be. Then, along the way, I increased my position size, trade more frequently, sometimes up to 15 pairs.
At one time, one account was down 30% and I was really upset, furious and disappointed. But, I did not give up and continue to trade daily, wanting to hone my skills further. Many experts advised to try a year on demo account and get it double or triple the account. So,I am determined to see that as fruition.
The first thing I did was to write it down - To make 5% profit consistently on my forex account each month. From the above chart, you could see, the first account was already making more than 30% profits while the 2nd one was slightly more than 10%, which means I had achieved what I asked for.
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.Matthew 7.7
I have this bible verse printed and kept a copy in my wallet. Each time, I opened my wallet, I will pull it out and read out aloud to myself, feeling the overwhelming joy and excitement of achieving this goal. The harvest came much earlier than I expected and it was a 6 fold increase from what I asked for.
10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. Malachi 3.10
So God's promise was tested and He indeed kept to his words and surprised you further with lavish gifts that you cannot imagined.
With the fruit of a man's mouth his stomach will be satisfied; He will be satisfied with the product of his lips.
The words that we said to ourselves, our confessions, are indeed earth shaking and powerful. If we allow the external circumstances to control our mind and shaken our faith, then we are being held hostage, falling prey to the darkness and spiralling downwards to despair, low self esteem and definitely away from God. But if, we have faith, though small like a mustard seed and continue to turn away from our situation and remain bold, despite the daily challenges and repeatedly await for the Glory of God to come (which he will every time) then we are on the right path and we can bask in his Glory and share the fruits of our labour.
Remain unshakeable, unstoppable and unwavering in all circumstances, however man wants you to believe them and judge you. Turn your attention away and focus your attention to God, for his words are the truth and will not return to him void.
Hope my experience with God here will propel you to dispel the negativity, disbelief that you may still hold about God and wander aimlessly in the wilderness, not knowing who to trust and lean to. Procrastinate no more and open your heart and welcome God into your life and you will experience his power, joy and love.
