A life of surrender

Hey pretty Sisters,

I thought to write to you on “Surrender” today and I would like you to open your heart. If you haven’t felt Him (you know that connection you feel when the Holy Spirit is in you) in a while, or you feel lost, or empty and dry, whichever, I would like you to stay glued to your screen and read every line of this post. I trust the Holy Spirit to minister to you.

The life of a Christian is a life of surrender to God through His Spirit, such that even when we are not fine with His will or we think ours seem better, we are still able to say, “Lord, only Your will be done”.

Can I be frank with you, sis? There is nothing called partial surrender, He is either Lord of all, or Lord of none. When we begin to demarcate the boundaries to which God leads in our lives, we begin to drift Him far from us. The moment we say, You can way your way in my career but not in my relationship with Smith, we eventually end up not hearing Him again- even in our career.

If there is any part of your life with which you are finding it difficult to surrender, Sis, it means it is wrong. You need to check it and listen to what He wants to say to you.

Truth is, when we fail to heed an instruction from the Holy Spirit, it is only a matter of time before He stops speaking to us again. Come to think of it, if you keep talking to me all day and I ignore you, I am certain it is only a matter of time before you stop talking to me. Besides, God has given us something called, “CHOICE”. You choose to either hear Him and obey or hear and ignore.

He wants to be Lord over every aspect of your life- your relationship with the opposite and same sex, career, academics, family, money, etc. 

Faith is not only trusting God to bless you with your heart desire but also trusting Him to lead the way while you follow, knowing He has only your best interest at heart.

Prayer: Dear Father, for everyone earnestly desiring to have Your Spirit back in them, I pray you inhabit them and quench the longing of their soul. I ask that You empower every sister to live a life of total surrender, withholding nothing, with absolute trust that You have only the best plans for us. Amen.

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


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

Purposefully Marching Forward

  Dear Sisters,  Happy New Month! Welcome to March,  the month  where God is moving us  further  in purpose.   I trust that you and yours are doing well and keeping safe. It ' s so good to be on here.    I was studying the ministry of Elisha recently ,  and  I  took not e  of  his dimension of impact.  What a man! He carried  a  double portion of Elijah ' s anointing ,  and Elijah was not small in any   way.  While Elijah and Elisha were very similar, they were distinct in their  purpose  and those they were sent to,  nothwithstanding  the measure of anointing .    Most of Elijah ' s miracles were inclined to life and death. On the other hand, most of Elisha ' s miracles were restoration  based like  healing  people and nations .   Therefore, it can be said that Elisha was a prophet of grace while Elijah was a prophet of judgment. Elijah gave testimonies  against men's sin and evil, while Elisha's testimonies were inclined for  salvation and preach God ' s m
