Where Have I Been?

My Dearest Sisters,

Its sure been a long time and i am so glad to be back. I have missed connecting with you all and i apologise for the brief hiatus.

First, I thank God for this network of the women of the God kind and the success of the just concluded convention. It's been 3 amazing years of God's evident wonders in our midst and truly, He is so mindful of us.

Now to where I have been, It's good news!

On the 13th of September, my family and I welcomed our latest addition - Baby Akorede Nathan and since then I have been trying to get a balance of everything....handling one toddler, nursing a baby, sleep routine, and all that stuff. But what is there not to thank God for? I praise God from whom all blessings flow.

For supernatural childbirth, I am thankful. This is my second birth experience and both were supernatural. I remember when I read the book 'supernatural childbirth' by Jackie Mize for the first time, I couldn't really relate (more like believe) to her when she said going by her birth experience, she wouldn't mind giving birth every year though she had to stop at 4. Now I see what she was talking about. My sisters, experiences are sweet when they are supernatural.

Oh and the victories God gave us during the pregnancy, undeniable!🙏💃 I remember one raining Friday in March, as I drove myself to work few minutes after dropping my toddler off at school, i was involved in an accident. The pregnancy was in the early stages, I panicked and immediately went for a check up and I was told baby and I were doing fine. We were unhurt, unscratched and preserved.

Fast forward to about 5 days after Nathan was born, my Dad was involved in a ghastly accident but Glory to God, he came out unhurt.
These are just to mention a few of His goodness towards me.

The year is coming to an end, I know. It hasn't been has you thought, I know but remember these:
1.Our ways are not his ways.
2. All things work together for the good of those that love God.
3. You might not be where you want but best believe, God has us exactly where He needs us to be for our own good and for His divine purpose.
4. Your unanswered prayers seem so either because the timing isn't right yet or that something bigger is in the pipeline. Just hang in there.
5. In whatever you're facing, find a reason to thank Him. In all things, we are admonished to give thanks.

Have a Blessed week ahead Sis

Love you and remain ever blessed 💕

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
