SEEK HIM

Happy New year Sisters,

I trust you had a good and well rested holiday. Welcome to 2018, our year of newness, we haven't walked this road before but we know the One who has.

Meanwhile, the holiday seemed short, it's the 2nd of January and I'm back to work 🤗🙏.

I know it's that time of the year where everyone has new year resolutions. I have come to realise that it's not the 'new year resolutions' that guarantees result. It's seeking God that will guarantee the result.
"Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G you need." Matthew 6:33 NLT
"Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take." Proverbs 3:6 NLT

By seeking him you're putting your plans in His hands and putting your plans in His hands is the only way success can be guaranteed.
Every individual who had good success sought God first: Joshua, Daniel, Joseph, Esther.
Seeking God requires being intentional. No one seek God accidentally. To seek is to actively engage in a search (until the desired outcome is attained).
I understand you want to get running already but wouldn't you rather run with purpose? Knowing where and when to make moves? It would be futility to work and not seek His face first.
God can be sought in various ways: Esther, Nehemiah and Daniel sought God through fasting and prayers. Joshua medidated on God's word.
Seek to hear his voice, seek to see his face, seek to be guided by Him.

In all you do this year, let His kingdom be your priority then all else will be added.


Cheers to our season of possibilities 🥂

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
