PROCESS





Sisters,

Happy New Month dearest, May this month birth abundant of miracles and yield it's increase to us. I believe God that we would all operate in His unlimited grace like never before.

Today's discussion is not something we are unfamiliar with, however, we often neglect its importance to our walk with Christ.

Lets take a cue frim butterflies: Butterflies go through several stages of metamorphosis. From being an egg to being a larva then a pupa then adult. Each of these phases has it's distinct goal. For example, caterpillars eat a lot while a pupa aims at reproduction.

Let's consider the perfect example Jesus: In Matthew 3 He was baptized, Matthew 4 he was tempted by the devil after fasting for forty days and forty nights in the wilderness. All of these events was before he launched his Ministry. If the Master had to go through a process before He could progress then ours is inevitable. The joy is that we know that these processes leads to being what God wants us to be. For there is no temptation that is uncommon to man - 1Corithians 10:13


Process preceeds procession. For any product to be beneficial it must go through a process first. If you are familiar with the manufacturing industry you would observe that work-in-progress/finished material could be raw material for another product. So, even when it appears we've been forgotten, we are not because the goal of being in that state could be to be a 'material" in another's processing phase.

We must recognise this in our various journeys, that there is a time to build. This is so we do not miss out of the very reasons why we are undergoing the process.

Also, we must know that every precious stone has it's unique refining process. Stop comparing or measuring your process to another's. It would only limit us and prevent us from bring fully equipped for purpose. And while we 'wait' in that process, let us continue to behold His glory - 2Corithians3:18.

The amazing thing about process is that it cannot be 'jumped'. We all must go through our individual process regardless of the continent/country we are in. Processes are not location based, they are purpose based.

Embrace your present process and seek God to reveal the purpose for the process you're currently in. Often times, what we go through isn't for us, it's for others. No product or tree uses itself, it's for the benefit of others.
There is a purpose in that process, don't neglect it.

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
