Even Though....


It is often said that starting is good but more important is ending well. The bible even puts it better, "better is the end of a matter than its beginning". Eccelisiastes 7:8
So Sis, to be on this platform at this latter part of the year is a pointer that our latter days shall be greater than the former by His grace.

Therefore, I count it a great privilege.😚

Speaking about the end of the year, it's not uncommon that we begin to take 'stock' and 'evaluate' the year so far.
But here is my admonition to you:
"Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vines; even though the olive crop fails, and the fields lie empty and barren; even though the flocks die in the fields, and the cattle barns are empty,yet I will rejoice in the Lord ! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation! The Sovereign Lord is my strength! He makes me as surefooted as a deer, able to tread upon the heights." Habakkuk 3:17-‬19 NLT

I reckon that the writer of the book of Habakkuk understood that things might not go as planned, his wants might not have been met yet, but still he will rejoice. In the 'worst' of days/times, what has been your disposition? When you are faced with 'even though' kind of situation what do you say or do?

If you were to think of the things God has saved you from and the things you've been through...aren't you glad you don't look like it - because He has made your feet like the deers. So, while it seems to you like you are not there yet, in actual fact, you have been walking on high places. Above principalities and powers. And the only reason you are still standing is because He has made a way.

Sis, I hope this encourages you stay in Joy and hope in God no matter what happens. Where you are at it's not the end though might be a bend. Rejoice!
Look at it this way, the lion that was to kill Samson brought him honey, could it be that that the seemingly looking mountainous situation before you is there to elevate you? After all, you have the feet of a deer.

I know there is a miracle in this season with your name on it and God requires us to wait in Joy. Let us keep our Joy undiluted despite the 'even thoughs' . Remember it is with Joy that we draw from the well of salvation.

Loads of 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


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

Purposefully Marching Forward

  Dear Sisters,  Happy New Month! Welcome to March,  the month  where God is moving us  further  in purpose.   I trust that you and yours are doing well and keeping safe. It ' s so good to be on here.    I was studying the ministry of Elisha recently ,  and  I  took not e  of  his dimension of impact.  What a man! He carried  a  double portion of Elijah ' s anointing ,  and Elijah was not small in any   way.  While Elijah and Elisha were very similar, they were distinct in their  purpose  and those they were sent to,  nothwithstanding  the measure of anointing .    Most of Elijah ' s miracles were inclined to life and death. On the other hand, most of Elisha ' s miracles were restoration  based like  healing  people and nations .   Therefore, it can be said that Elisha was a prophet of grace while Elijah was a prophet of judgment. Elijah gave testimonies  against men's sin and evil, while Elisha's testimonies were inclined for  salvation and preach God ' s m
