God's Love



My Beloved Sisters,

I trust God that all is well with you: spirit, soul and body. I pray that God's grace will continue to uphold us and prepare us for His coming.

Today, I would like to talk about something that's dear to the Father's heart - His unwavering love for us.

I have a 13months old son and each time I look at him, I see the best child ever. I have friends whom we had our babies at about the same time and whenever we talked about our children's milestones each one of us have this 'fire' in our eyes. To me, my child is the best and to them theirs is the best also, their shortcoming regardless.

This reminds me of Isaiah 49:15 ĺNLT) that says "Never! Can a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no love for the child she has borne? But even if that were possible, I would not forget you!"

As if this assurance isn't enough: consider Matthew 7:11 "So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him."

Let the (good) way our earthly parents loves us give us an incline to how crazy God is about us.

I have wondered a couple of times on how I would be able to share without bias the love I have for my son now with his siblings when they arrive. I was told by those who have more than one child that all the love I think I have now is not all that there is to me. I still have loads of love that is yet to be tapped into.

No wonder our God has enough love to go round all his children. The multibreasted One! Oh! how God
 loves you and I.

The question now is: have you received His love? Sometimes we ourselves downplay the love of God towards us by comparing ourselves to others, seeing ourselves as undeserving. What this does is to create friction between you and your creator.

Now I get why Paul described the love of God for us as inseparable, reckless and unending - Romans 8.

What is stopping from you from receiving the Master's love? your inadequacies? Look to Jesus, He is our sufficiency. In actual fact, there's  nothing we did or will ever do to earn His love. Just enjoy it.
It's only a trick of the devil to make you think God doesn't love you enough, the more you make yourself open to receive, the more you get.

You can make yourself open to receive His love in the place of worship.

God loves us like crazy!

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
