Glitter in God’s Eyes (a)

Hi Friend 😊😊😊❤

How are you? Myself, I am well. He has given me Greater Joy. He has kept me. I am most delighted to jot down from my heart once more and my desire and deep hope is that I speak life to you.

Let’s dwell on scripture that I have constantly pondered in my heart over the years. I refer to it every time I am bombarded by different emotions. This is something that I have been allowing God to lead me to a deeper understanding of because I want to be identified by it. Don’t you? Something that is so precious to God must be Treasure, don’t you think? 🌻💛🌻💛

I speak of 1 Peter 3:4 “But let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.”

When I think of gentle, I think of surrender. I think that the kind of beauty that Christ wants to work in us comes from a peaceful place of surrender. Gentleness, meekness and quietness is so precious to God because it reveals that we are restfully trusting in God. We are hoping in God, not in man. We are completely trusting in God and that is why we have peace and we can be meek and tranquil and quiet and not constantly troubled, not anxious, not fretful or frantic. So I would say one reason why it is beautiful to God is because when a woman has a peaceful soul, not fretting about this or that, it shows that God is her portion and she is relying on God 🌼💞🌼💞🌼 We can find this in 1 Peter 3:5 which says, “For this is how the holy women of old hoped in God and used to adorn themselves” …..So hoping in God produces this quality and that is a reason why it is so beautiful and so precious.

🌻🌼🌻🌼🌻🌼

I show gentleness when I am considerate, patient, understanding, forgiving and not easily offended or irritated. Think about the opposite of gentle—harsh, pushy, insistent, demanding and argumentative. Sometimes I think we fear being gentle because we fear we’ll appear weak or vulnerable. We see in Scripture that God is both a mighty warrior and a tender Shepherd. In Isaiah 40:10 and 11 we read, “See, the Sovereign LORD comes with power …He tends His flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in His arms and carries them close to His heart”  In the same way,we can be both gentle and strong💜💙

If we go back to the key verse, it says “Let your adorning be the hidden person” : this points to that place hidden from man, but open and clear to God. The inner person. If I cultivate my secret place with the father, He will mold me from the inside out and everything that comes out of me will be a sweet aroma to Him. This will eventually bear external fruit because my behavior will be affected by these inner qualities. It will bear fruit, But it starts from the hidden place.

In summary, a few things that point me towards this Beautiful Character:

  • To find my worth as God’s child and His amazing love for me.
  • To lean into the truth of who His Word says I am and keep all His promises in my heart.
  • To talk through every little moment of my day with Him instead of taking it out on someone else
  • To be honest with myself about my feelings and navigate through them with what the word says concerning that specific situation and prayer
  • To be still and know that He is God. I don’t have to worry, be anxious or fret over anything honestly because #Trust. He very well knows the desires of my heart and I trust Him to make everything beautiful according to His will. A Blessed Assurance.
  • Prayer and some more prayer.
  • Consistent Bible Study
  • To speak less, listen more, extend grace,forgive quickly and love unconditionally

Godly beauty is something that never fades. When I read that it’s precious to God, I desire that. I want to cultivate a life that brings Him honor and pleasure, don’t you?

Thank you for stopping by. God bless you a whole lot.

Love & Love ❤

Treasures In Depth

A letter to me, the young and naïve me, 6 years ago:
JJ, it’s okay to be different. I know different doesn’t feel good right now and I know you’re doing everything  to hide the difference. But God in His beauty and majesty created you as you are. He brought His perfect creative power in you meaning you couldn’t be any more perfect.
JJ, I need you to seek God. I know you know Him but I wish you’d spend more time with Him, in fellowship and communion with Him because everything you’re gonna do will be from him. Train yourself how to hear his voice so that your steps can be accurately from Him and for Him.
I know you desire to be loved. To be longed for because that’s every little girls dream. I wish I could tell you this journey will be perfect. Far from it, it…

Try Jesus?

In the Bible, there’s a story that is familiar to most of us. There was a woman who was sick and bleeding for 12 years. The bible tells us that she went everywhere looking for a doctor who could help her. She walked for miles searching for help. Can you imagine that journey? She spent her life looking for answers. Not only was she looking for help, but she spent every bit of money she had to try to find those answers. With her condition, she was considered an outcast. She was unclean. She wasn’t supposed to be around people. Think about this woman. She was lonely, desperate and very sick. Then she heard that Jesus was in her town. She knew he wasn’t a doctor, but she was going out to see Him. She had heard that He healed others and FULLY believed that if she could get to Him, she would be healed. The Bible says that in a weakened state, she got up, pressed through the crowd and touched the hem of His garment, and she was immediately made whole.

​You know what I started thinking about when I read this recently? I started wondering how she got through those 12 years. 12 YEARS! I wonder how many people in that day were in similar circumstances; desperate, sick, tired, hurting—but they gave up. They heard Jesus was coming and said, “I’ve already tried everything. 

Ever just felt that struggle in your heart- that tug that says “I know I’m supposed to trust you God. I know that I’m supposed to honour you and be positive but my circumstances look crazy and I have NO idea how this is going to work out! Listen, If everything was already figured out in your life, why would you need to depend on Him? We were made for Him. GOD places HOLES in your hearts & brings you through seasons where you will be FORCED to depend on Him with everything you got. During those seasons you have two options- you can flow with Him and let Him develop you, or you can try to squirm out of it, depend on yourself or harden your heart against Him. God will always do HIS part, so be sure that you are doing your part.

Your part:

·Spending time with Him daily…reading your bible, praying – Get a bible and devotional that you love and enjoy to study. Set time aside. The same way you set time aside for work, people and everything else-you HAVE to make time for God. I’ve heard that you’ll make something a habit if you do it everyday for 21 days ….and it actually works

· LET go of the idea that you’ll always know everything & be able to figure it out. You just won’t. You have to get comfortable “not knowing” sometimes

·Obey God daily. You can say that you trust Him with your lips but God is looking at your intentions as clearly as He hears your words. So when the test comes, PASS it.

·What are you watching on TV & what music are you listening to, what environments do you expose yourself to? Protect your heart. Things grow there.

When the worry creeps into your mind- talk back to it! TELL worry that God provides everything you need and that by faith, you trust Him. See Matthew 6:33- But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well

​I know that it’s hard to trust God at times. I know that you have your good days and then you have some really rough days . But your focus must be on Jesus alone because if I am not content with just Him, then He won’t bring things into my life so that I can make those things my idols. Our focus must shift from what we think we need to the cross. So, if that door opens or not, it doesn’t matter. Our focus was never on that door opening, it’s in Christ so if opens great, if not , it was not supposed to so I trust Him. Philippians 4:11-13 says – I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength ♥

God loves you 🙂

Thorn

Hi there..it is my hope that you are well. I’m about to share something and I believe that this post is meant for me just as much as it’s meant for you. 

I will talk about thorns. Thorns referring to situations or struggles we face that come in the way of our thriving in the Lord. Here’s a thing about thorns ; they are hard to get out. The more it stays, the deeper it pierces and the harder and more painful it becomes to get it out. The sooner you deal with it, the less severe the consequences and the easier it will be to overcome because it would not have a great hold of you yet. I recently just removed one from my foot 😀 . And the spirit led me to this… I was learning something…I did not realise it until now. 


At first, I felt some pain while walking. It was faint, but I felt it…Because I was in a hurry & running errands, I did not really take the time to check it out, I ignored it. Thought it was just an irritation, a stone or something. Moments later, the pain increased. So I stopped, took off my sandal and shook it then looked at my foot. It was so red and when I touched the surface, I felt a sharp object …protuding from my foot. I tried to pull it out but to no avail. I tried and tried but no! The thing was just not getting out. The more I tried, the more frustrated I got. I couldn’t have a hold of it. I had to limp my way home , settle down, and ask for help from my mum 🙂 .She got it out after doing some needle work on my foot because it was too far in …But it got out.

This got me thinking…How many times have we encountered the same? Well not a literal thorn but struggles….they have been hard to overcome…If you have struggled with one, then you know what I’m talking about. I will give a few examples- Drug addiction; alcohol,cigarettes etc? A physical ailment (disease)? Maybe you struggle with discontentment, always wanting more and more which as a result clouds your mind from realising the blessings you already have which leads to loss altogether, Maybe you’re angry and moody all the time no matter how much you try to be joyful,Is it that wordly music you feed your mind with that you seem to have a hard time letting go of? Maybe a relationship you have no business being in? Struggle with reading the bible? Could it be low self esteem, low confidence…..or shame? Disobedience in the name of minding how others feel? Let us look at Paul; He mentioned a thorn in his flesh too in 2 Corinthians 12:7 “And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure.” I’m not sure of what exactly Paul was struggling with because it is not specified, still researching on that though, but it seems that whatever it was, it troubled him so much.

But then, there is God’s provision to Paul through his thorn in the flesh- 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 , “And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

God had a response for Paul. The answer was not what Paul was initially hoping for, or expecting. But God still had a response for Paul. We often close our ears to God if He responds in a way we were not hoping for, or expecting.

God says, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness : Instead of removing the thorn from Paul’s life, God had given, and would give, His grace to Paul. The grace God gave Paul was sufficient to meet his every need.


There are two ways of taking away a burden. It can be done by:-

1. Removing the load

2.Strengthening the shoulder bearing the load. 

Instead of taking away the thorn, God would strengthen Paul under it, and God would show His strength through Paul’s weakness .

There is no way we can believe God’s grace is sufficient until we believe we ourselves are insufficient.

Thorns have no life. Thorns hold you back. Thorns steal your joy. Thorns are empty. Thorns break bonds. Thorns come from the enemy. But thorns can be overcome. Making the choice to give your life to Christ does not guarantee a free card from these struggles. You will face them tenfold especially. With your own strength it will be impossible to overcome them. Impossible. You cannot do it.
So, how do we deal with thorns?

1. Realise you have a thorn. Accept you have a struggle. Humble yourself and realise you need help

2. Pray and ask God to fight with you through it, and if its something you have no control over, I promise you He will give you sufficient grace and strength you never thought you’d have. I needed help from my mum to remove the thorn in my foot. I couldn’t do it on my own…just in the same way we need  Christ to overcome.

3. Talk to someone; a mentor or a trusted friend. They may have faced the same struggle as you hence more knowledgable. They will make great accountability  as well.

4. The bible- read it and read it out loud. It will restart your heart and refresh your soul. It will strengthen your faith (faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God) and give you a better understanding 

5. Praise: praise God through it. There is just something about praising God. It will remind you of His might. Proclaim that He has already done it for you. Say it again and again. He is faithful and He is faithful to His promises.

His grace is sufficient. 

God loves you so much.

He says…

Dear friend, You belong to Christ, you don’t have to live for approval. You live from God’s approval. Because of Jesus, you are acceptable to God, not based on what you do or don’t do, have done or will do, but based on what Jesus did. You get to obey him because you LOVE him, not because it’s an obligation, a rule…. To love Him, is to obey Him. You may say, “For me to be right with God, I need to be good.

NO! Jesus was good.

For me to be right with God, I need to make a Sacrifice. NO! Jesus was the sacrifice.

For me to be right with God, I need to be righteous. NO! Jesus was righteous for me.

For me to be right with God, ALL I NEED IS JESUS! He tells us in John 14:6  that He is the way,the truth and the life. Noone comes to the father except through Him. 

Also in John 15:5 He says, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do NOTHING.
Jesus doesn’t ask us to come when we’re perfect, when we’re healed, when we’re happy and have our lives together. He asks us to come as we ARE, not as we could be; because when we come to Him as we are, He turns us into what we can be. He will take your brokenness, your shame, your hurt, your past, and use it to turn your life around! Guilt says:I did bad. Shame says: I am bad. Shame steals your identity and it doesn’t come from God . You can be free from it. Jesus uses the most broken people for the most amazing purposes. So bring your chains to the One who can break them. Bring your shame to the One who is shameless. Bring your hurt to the One who can heal it. You don’t need to fix yourself; Jesus will, if you let Him. I promise. Come as you are, and He will give you rest ♥

★ Superior ★

Hey guys. I hope we are all well 🙂 How is your new year? Yaaaay 2017 . God is so mighty. It is no ordinary thing to cross over to the new year healthy and strong. He kept us.
I have an awesome idea today that I thought i’d share before going into the post. Have you ever heard of a happy jar? A happy jar is where you get a jar, a container etc write down notes of every happy and magical moment throughout the year, it could be weekly,monthly or just when it happens and drop it in the jar. I think a journal or diary can work too. Then at the end of the year we will open them and appreciate the moments. I think it is a beautiful idea 🙂 


On to today’s post 🙂

★★★★★

I can’t make a heart beat. I can’t cause the earth to turn. None of us can. And as far as I know, none of our ancestors did :-D. Not by our own strength anyway. I can’t trust wholly in science. It’s just not in my ability to put my complete faith in human intellect. I believe in something more. I believe in miracles. I believe in faith and faithfulness. I believe in family. I believe in peace that surpasses human understanding. I believe in love, The kind that casts out all fear. I believe in acts of kindness. I believe in honesty. I believe in Christ. All these things I believe in cannot be, apart from Christ.

I love science as a subject and almost specialised in it in my career. But my heart beats for a superior kind too. There are some things that cannot be explained by human intellect…they are just beyond us.

 The kind of facts I believe in can only be found in the Holy Bible. I believe in creation, the Genesis account of creation. I believe in a Creator. 

I don’t believe that the human mind is capable of complete wisdom. I believe that God is superior. And one way we see His superiority is in His infinite knowledge. He knows all things, He has created all things. His word tells us, “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.” (Rev. 22:13) . This is where we get our wisdom from. From He who is supreme.

Now, what am I trying to say?

WHEN I chose to TRUST in Someone greater than myself, and whose knowledge far surpasses every shred of wisdom I have, my life started. Life starts when we put our trust in Jesus. Life starts when we realize we should be living for His kingdom and not for this world. “And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever.” (1 John 2:17) As this verse states, the world as we know it now will pass away, cease to exist. But the kingdom of God is eternal, and every person who puts his FAITH in God will have eternal life as well. He will abide. Forever. And we will abide with Him. Forever. Try and comprehend that. I can’t. That great big word “forever” that no one in their human nature has ever been able to wrap their mind around or ever dared to believe it could come true. But because God is graceful, He gives us that ability: the ability to hope in “forever.”

God loves you so much and I wish you nothing but an amazing year.

Sons & Daughters

Lately I have been challenging myself on what God expects of me when He tells me to ‘honour’. One of the areas I have been looking on is the honour of one’s parents and those in authority. Do I really understand what it means or is it just mere obedience to their wishes?

image

Parents are such wonderful blessings that God has placed in our lives to nurture us, love us, give us advice and show us wisdom. Being much older than us, they know better, Don’t you agree? Even if you may have just one parent,or neither of them…or absentee ones….God has placed many other people in your life to be spiritual parents. Let us honour them as well as those in authority and our respective leaders as well for leadership comes from God.

But do we fully understand what that means?

What does it mean to honour my father and mother? Is it just obeying everything they ask of me? Or doing my level best to make them proud? Is that it?

Honouring your father and mother is being respectful in word and action and having an inward attitude of esteem for their position, whether devoted to you or not. God values honouring parents enough to include it in the ten commandments (Exodus 20:12) and again in Ephesians 6:1-3, “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your father and mother which is the first commandment with a promise, so that it may be well with you, and that you may live long on the earth” Honoring parents is the only command in Scripture that promises long life as a reward. Those who honour their parents are blessed (Jeremiah 35:18-19). We are called to honour their unspoken as well as spoken wishes. “A wise son heeds his father’s instruction, but a mocker does not listen to rebuke,” Proverbs 13:1. Enough grumbling. Let it be the last time we assume such little actions that have great importance. Your mummy asks you to get something that is 15cm away from her? ….whiiileee you are in your room😂 Run and do it cheerfully.  What matters is that act of obedience. Your daddy does not like you dressing in some type of way? Submit to that. Cheerfully. There is no life in grumbling your way through their wishes and trying to justify your actions. Respecting them is key. It will not only build your character but inspire others too…. your siblings included and those who look up to you.

image

We should seek to honor our parents in much the same way that we strive to bring glory to God—in our thoughts, words, and actions. For a young child, obeying parents goes hand in hand with honoring them. That includes listening, heeding, and submitting to their authority. After we mature, the obedience that we learned as kids will serve us well in honoring other authorities such as the government and employers. However, the same element of submission towards them remains because we are still under their covering. If we desire to please God and have His favour, we should honor our parents. I am fully aware that not all of us have parents we can look upto and wish to emulate, maybe they’re not christians… maybe they are absent… maybe abusive…may not supportive..etc but I ask you to still respect them and ask God to heal your heart from any hurt and resentment. Love is key and you know what’s amazing? God can use you to reach out to them, you know? And that’s…that’s pretty special. Do your part as a child of God and pray for them. Just pray. Prayer is so powerful. Honoring is not easy, is not always fun, and certainly is not possible in our own strength. But God asks us to. “Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord” (Colossians 3:20)…

Let us embrace this. My prayer is that each one of us makes a stand today to completely submit and obey cheerfully as unto the Lord.

God loves you 🙂

VICTORY WITHOUT A SINGLE ARROW SHOT

Hallo 🙂

I would like to share on Hezekiah today pinpointing some parts of his journey. Please read through. His story is remarkable and I am sure it will bless you as it did me. Do you know it? Mmmmh… Have you done your devotion today?

image

“Hezekiah became king when he was twenty-five years old,  and he reigned twenty-nine years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Abijah the daughter of Zechariah. 2 And he did what was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father David had done.” 2 Chronicles 29:1-2

Prior to Hezekiah’s reign, his father, King Ahaz, brought the very worst forms of idolatry into Israel. Israel had gone into a state of spiritual decay at that time. But when Hezekiah succeeded Ahaz as King at a relatively young age of 25, God spoke well of his character. Hezekiah would rule for 29 years. He was God’s anointed man to bring revival, healing to the nation and restoration.

In the eyes of God, Hezekiah was righteous. He was a restorer from the evil his father did in his faithlessness. Hezekiah restored the temple, brought order to the priesthood, and brought righteousness back in the kingship of Israel.

Hezekiah’s righteous nature would not come without its tests. If anyone desires to live a life of honour in Christ, they will face trials and Hezekiah was no different. In the midst of doing what he saw was right by not paying alms to Assyria, the enemy came to make war with Jerusalem. Has an enemy risen up against you? People of God…stand still and see the salvation of the Lord! The battle is not yours, but the battle is the Lord’s!

image

The voice of the enemy was strong and loud as they stood at the gates of Jerusalem with a powerful and intimidating army.  The crowd was speaking against God, against Hezekiah and his abilities as king. The aim of the enemy was to cast doubt and spread dismay to the people. The enemy wants to shake your faith and make you feel discouraged, even angry and discontented. Stand in faith. In the natural, there was no way no hope for Jerusalem and Hezekiah to escape the oppression and violence of the Assyrians. The thing they needed most was their faith in God and His ability, promise and desire to rescue them and fight on their behalf.

Hezekiah remained steadfast. Hezekiah’s faith was not shaken by what he saw in the natural. Hezekiah hung on to the promise that God had given him. Hezekiah continued to follow in obedience despite circumstances rising up against him. Hezekiah kept the course and resisted the enemy. He relied on God and kept his faith. When all hope looked to be lost, the prophet of God came with a Word.  The LORD was going to perform a miracle.

Overnight, the enemy’s army was decimated by the hand of God’s angels. Hezekiah had victory without having to send forth a single arrow shot. There is more to his story but I will stop there on today’s post.

We learn that…

God is faithful. He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him, especially when in times of distress and crisis. He knows it is especially hard to trust Him under trial. When your faith is tested, and you come out on the other side, God has a reward for you.

image

Hezekiah was a restorer of righteousness. He was a true man of faith and dedication that arose during times of spiritual decay.  God has His people set aside for service and He knows where they are! You are set apart. Hezekiah was fulfilling his duties and assignment on earth faithfully.  But the enemy came to disrupt him and his path by throwing confusion, war, and death

Friend,

Your test will become your testimony and the new morning will dawn with the favor of God like the dew of the morning grass. God created and made you to Be His. Just Be His. Being His means you are loved, protected, blessed, favored, treasured, prosperous, prized and always taken care of. Apple of His eye.

God loves you so much ❤

Blessings.

PRAYER BOX

Hi there, I hope you are doing well.

I intend on touching on prayer on this post….. and mention an idea on how to do it …. ayy? 🙂

A Prayer Box

image

A prayer box can come in any form… it can be a box… literally; where you write down your prayer thoughts on paper and store them in a box , a diary/journal, your phone storage/laptop or any other place a person prefers. A place where you write down , keep, store etc.. the desires of your heart and present them to God. A place where you can come back to.

There are several reasons why i’d recommend this;

1. Having the spiritual habit of journaling will help you refresh your prayer life. But don’t make it too complicated. Simply write down what you’re saying to God, and write down what God’s saying to you. Prayer items.

2. If your prayer life is not as willful as you’d want it to be nor growing as much as you’d want and you feel like you’re saying the same prayers over and over, or you fail to mention everything you’d want to, one of the best things you can do is to write down your prayers. It makes it more personal, and it helps you be more  intentional about your prayers.

3. It helps you focus your thoughts. It also helps you worship as you thank God for speaking to you and responding. 

4. I think it’s a BEAUTIFUL thing to have a place to go to and see your conversations with God and that also reminds you of areas he came through for you too 🙂 . It is a form of intimacy with the Holy Spirit that should be treasured. Don’t you agree? When you come to the place where you can know the Lord in an intimacy that He creates, you begin to really know how to pray. Soon you discover that your heart is so yielded to His that you want nothing but what He wants. And you learn to delight yourself in the Lord; then He gives you the desires of your heart. And as you talk with Him, your purpose is to know Him better. Then you will realize the true purpose of prayer.

image

Most of us put fences around our prayers unknowingly. We have offered so many prayers through a sense of duty, and without any thought of being answered(little faith)…..

image

……….that we get astonished when an answer truly comes from God. Consider, as an example of this, an incident that occurred in the early church as recorded in the book of the Acts. Herod was king and began a persecution in which James, the brother of John, was killed, and Peter was put in prison.

We read, “Peter, therefore, was kept in prison; but prayer was made without ceasing by the church unto God for him” (Acts 12:5). The whole story gives us the picture of Peter in prison in one part of the town and a group of believers gathered together elsewhere praying for him. Then, God intervened. Though Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains and with guards in front of the prison door, an angel came and cast a sleep upon the guards and delivered Peter, who suddenly found himself in the street, alone. Peter soon realized that he had been delivered by the power of God and made his way through the streets to the home of Mary, the mother of John, where many were gathered together, praying. Peter knocked at the door of the gate, and a young woman, named Rhoda, came to the door to listen. Peter announced himself, and she was so confused with joy at the sound of his voice that she left him standing on the outside of the unopened gate and ran back into the house with the news of his deliverance. Now, if they had had faith, they would have thanked God for the answer and taken it as a gift from God. But we read, “They said unto her, Thou art mad” (Acts 12:15). When the young girl constantly affirmed that it was true and that Peter was there, the leaders of the prayer meeting said, “It is his angel” (verse 15). This is a commentary of our slowness of heart to believe the promises and the power of God. “But Peter continued knocking” (Acts 12:16). When they saw him, we read further that they were astonished. And even after this, it took some convincing by Peter before they really understood what had happened.

Friends, Let’s not doubt the power of prayer. Pray, pray, pray!!! And then pray some more in faith 🙂

So then,

image

I don’t believe in worrying too much about any situation.  I have learned to trust in Jesus and to depend upon His word and timing. I want you to stop worrying too much too. We have a father who has everything under control. Our role is to simply obey Him and love Him. Talk to Him and have faith, okay? He knows your heart.

*Ps : ‘Here now’ by Hillsong United is an amazing song i recommend a listen 🙂

Stay blessed.

Hallo 🙂

Happy New Year’s Eve…

Even as the year comes to an end …

We find that often, it’s challenging for us to fully trust God, because society has painted the picture of the “perfect timeline”. So, instead of trusting God, we are pressured and often times discouraged. So many people can relate to this right now especially because it’s the last day of the year… probably feeling stagnant in some area of your life? …like… it’s not happening…. and you can’t help but wonder…mmmmmmmmh… don’t do that okay? Don’t. …Though it is natural to want to look ahead, we run the risk of missing the things God needs us to see at this time. Time is never meaningless for Him and if we try to jump ahead, we may not learn the very lessons that will so benefit us in the season to come. He is not ignoring us when time seems to stand still, but rather keeping us in the present so we may prepare for the upcoming season.

Know this…

In Christ alone is perfection found… The
perfection of our timeline and time-frame. Many of us lose patience and even faith in God, because of the microwave
mind-frame that we have. We lose patience and faith because we feel like He’s taking too long with the plan that we want for OURSELVES. But that’s the PROBLEM , it’s NOT the plan and WILL that God has for us, it’s the plan and will that we have for ourselves. Our focus is on us, and this makes our hope temporal instead of eternal.

The BEAUTIFUL thing about God is that His time ISN’T our time. And many times, His plan isn’t our plan . But it’s PERFECT.

So whenever it seems like “it’s taking too long”, we must trust the author of time with the perfection of our timeline.

Keep going and keep trusting.

Confess this over your life…
