Shall Stand...



Hey sisters,

Seest thou a man DILIGENT in His business? he SHALL stand before kings; he SHALL NOT stand before mean men. Proverbs 22:29 (KJV)

I see the scripture above as a covenant. How committed are you to the things committed to you? In whatever you have at hand, show diligence and commitment even if you do not seem to be motivated. Truth of the matter is, there is always a reward for hard-work. The law of seed time and harvest is real. You can't sow into something and not be rewarded.


At a time at work, I really felt discouraged. I was bombarded with series and series of work from different people. While I worked from resumption till closing, my colleagues were literally less busy and I envied them.

I kind of felt really discouraged because I wasn't getting the motivation I expected from those I worked for and I felt I wasn't well appreciated. But because I had sown my hard-work, I definitely had to reap. I was not only rewarded, I was celebrated and bragged about to senior colleagues. I was surprised and overwhelmed with joy that I couldn't even talk much.

That really gave me a new mindset to see that hard-work is indeed reward-able. So Sis, I want to encourage you. Do not relent at whatever it is that you are doing either spiritual investment, career wise or anything. You won't always get the encouragement you need from people. You have to personally and intentionally encourage yourself.

The scriptures cannot be broken, never! It has never failed, and not for you. You will surely stand before kings, not just mean men. Scriptures encourages us to make sure that whatever our hands findeth to do, should be done well. So, keep at it, for in due season, if you faint not, you will reap.

Whatever is that work, as long as it is not negative, you will not only be rewarded but celebrated in Jesus mighty name. Do not give up and do not discuss with people who will help reduce your morale.

Seed time and harvest is real. You shall not be robbed in Jesus mighty name.

Much love,

Your Sis

As They Went

  Dear Beautiful One, I trust that you are well and that this post meets you in great spirits.  Some time ago, I had a task at work that seemed very convoluted. I wasn't quite sure how to go about it, but as I started, it became clearer what I needed to do and how I needed to go about it. I have come to  realise  that one of the most significant milestones one could ever deal with is starting and because the enemy knows this, he tries to keep us from starting. Keeps us from starting to obey God or cultivating the right attitude or association.    This and other similar occurrences made me begin meditating on the power of starting.  Often  we are faced with so many undaunted decisions and uncertainties and get conflicted about the aftermath of a decision even before we begin. Frankly, we will never know what lies ahead if we never start.  So  the best way to know what lies ahead is to start. Start from where you are. Clarity comes from doing. My pastor usually buttresses this point

DEALING WITH NEGATIVE THOUGHTS

Dear Sisters, I trust God that you and yours are doing well.  Before now, I would b ea t myself up each time a negative thought crosses my mind. This led me to do a lot of meditation on the power of thoughts and how to take charge of them. Of the many things I have now come to understand is that: negative thoughts in themselves are not bad. I know that sounds weird but stay with me, let me explain myself. Allowing these thoughts to remain and control us is where the issue lies.  It reminds me of the analogy of temptation versus sin. It is okay to be tempted, but it is not okay to sin.  When I was meditating on this, I read a devotional that week that reiterated that dwelling on bad thoughts is what causes  believers to fall. For the purpose of context, not all negative thoughts are 'fornication' or 'adultery' related; sometimes, it is not doing the will of the Father. Peter is a good example here when he said Christ would not wash his feet (John 13:8) and when he reprim

THERE IS MORE!

Hello Beautiful, Happy new year! It’s been a while I wrote to you, I trust that you are doing well.  How were the festive celebrations? Pleasant, I hope, except for the part of dealing with the extra pounds gained from the plenty food. 😊 It’s a few days into the new year, and I could not think of a better time to reconnect with you, my sisters. As the year 2021 ended, I was in a place where I did not want the year to ‘finish’. Why you may ask, well, it is because God blew my mind in 2021 – the year was heaven on earth for me – God’s favour was evident in all I did, and it felt so ‘sweet’. Everything that has a beginning must have an ending, so the year was bound to end regardless of my multiple testimonies. And that it had to end sort of began to make me feel unexpectant for 2022. Weird right? I wondered why too, mainly because the testimonies I experienced in 2020 I did not see coming or technically ask for them – it was just God honouring me.  So towards the end of 2021, I deliberat
