Planted Not Buried



Hello Sis,

I trust you are well.

Sometime last year, I wrote about Psalm 1 and how we can be planted but the enemy uses our sensory perception to make us belief that we are dead. After all, the process is similar.

Well this is another reminder to you sis.
Even Though the process to being planted and buried looks pretty much the same, the result differs. Both are covered in the ground. The latter is covered forever while the former regenerates. Something that is buried is of no use while something that is planted is of use and in fact, of more use when it grows. A seed that is not planted will only remain a seed. On the other hand, a seed that is planted is a plant in the making.

The question is, do you want to be a seed or a plant? But know that there is no plant without planting. It's a process we all must go through if we must maximize our full potential. More often the process seems dirty, hard, energy consuming, painful armies or even unpleasant.

Would you rather hold unto a mango seed rather than have the mango itself? Just what I thought, you wouldn't. If we must move from potential to being, we must be planted. Without allowing the devil deceive us into being buried. Every seed has it's own peculiar process and gestation period.

Could it be that 2017 was one of the planting seasons of your life? Could it be that the experiences you had are what would culminate into your testimonies this year.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 says it all, there is time for everything. A time to plant and a time to harvest.
Don't be insensitive to this season of your life. Like the sons of Issachar, they understood times and seasons.

Keep breathing, you've been planted and your profiting shall appear to all in Jesus Name.

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

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
