Your Place in the Kingdom


Dear Sisters,

I thank God for bringing us all into this new month of September, May it one we would live to remember for good in Jesus Name.
I trust everyone is doing well. I encourage you not to be anxious, all things are working together in your favour. Relax! and let Jesus take the wheel.

Recently, I have found myself in the 'thought- place' of purpose, life assignment and occupying my place in the Kingdom. And I would love to share some of those thoughts with you, I hope it blesses you.

As a child of God we must know that God created us for a purpose only Him can reveal. However, on the journey to that purpose we have several assignments some of which include: being a helper, teacher, apostle, encourager, leader, and so on. Each individual's assignment is unique and none is inferior to another. Unfortunately, today we are often carried away by pomp and pageantry of others' assignments and look down on ours.

Apostle Paul illustrates this using the various body parts. Let's take a look at 1 Corinthians 12:14-20

"Yes, the body has many different parts, not just one part. If the foot says, “I am not a part of the body because I am not a hand,” that does not make it any less a part of the body. And if the ear says, “I am not part of the body because I am not an eye,” would that make it any less a part of the body? If the whole body were an eye, how would you hear? Or if your whole body were an ear, how would you smell anything? But our bodies have many parts, and God has put each part just where he wants it. How strange a body would be if it had only one part! Yes, there are many parts, but only one body."

God evaluates us based on our given assignments - where he has placed us not based on what we think is acceptable or in popular demand. If God has called you to be a 'finger' in the body of Christ, stay there. The body of Christ is waiting for your manifestation as that ordained finger. No one would be a finger better than you because that is what you were made for.
That is your only place of flourishing and fulfilment, no matter how 'insignificant ' it may seem.
We must learn to stay planted where He has called us so we can bear fruits - according to kingdom standard not the people standard.

We must learn to let the word of God guide our daily living not what is trending. Don't forget that what is seen is temporal and the unseen is eternal.
Mind you, what is trending today would be obsolete soon enough. What then would be your fate? But being in your place of assignment would never go out of date because the the giver (God) is current for all seasons.

Remember,  you are here on a purpose and for a purpose.

You can share your thoughts/questions with me in the comment box below, I would love to hear from you.💕


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
