You Are Born For This

Hello Sis,

Welcome to the last Tuesday of the month. Our best days are ahead of us and the lines are fallen for us in pleasant places in Jesus Name.

A lot of times we go through phases that seem bigger than us. Phases we can't comprehend, phases we think we can't survive or aren't prepared for.

I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ's sufficiency]. Philippians 4:13 AMPC

The good news that we most times neglect is that, we've been made for this. To pass through fire and not smell like smoke. This God is ever faithful. He won it all for us on the cross and fabricated us to go through life and come out conquering.

We might not be operating in this yet because we have not tapped into it. We have not because we ask not because everyone that asketh receiveth. Could it be that we are exhausted in this journey because we depend on our human strength And not the Lord's?

In our kingdom, acknowledgment is the button of operation. Philemon 1:6 says that our faith might be effective we must acknowledge every good work in us through ChristJesus. Yes, Christ Jesus. He is the reason we are here and can live. It is in him we live move and have our being. In him is life and that life is the light of men.

If you take nothing out of this post, take this. No matter what you face or go through, know that you are ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into you.

Father in the name of Jesus, I receive fresh strength to do my life's assignment as a believer, as a mother, as a student, as a wife and in all areas. This is my reality and i am working in it gracefully. Thank you Lord. Amen.

Shalom.

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
