Happy 2019 in advance




Hello Sis,

Happy 2019 in advance! Over here in the Winners Family Worldwide, we have begun another year and it is not too late for you to join us.

Are you ready for the year yet or you are still waiting till the next few days or even 31st? As important as your prayer points for the new year are, so are your goals too.

Permit me to share an experience with you, last week, I had all my goals and targets for 2019 well written on paper. Although, I have not strategized on them all.

That same week, I saw an opportunity that presented itself to hit one of those goals. This taught me a great lesson. First, goals open our eyes to see opportunities that could have been considered a 'mere event'.

Second, the earlier the better you set your goals, the faster you begin smashing and accomplishing them.

Do not wait till the end of the year. Sit, map out those goals. In fact, even if you do not have strategies to accomplishing yet, when an opportunity comes, you would be able to recognize it as a blessing and strategy.

What are your plans for 2019?
What improvement of 2018 are you working on?
What skills do you need to accomplish your goals?
What lessons (good/bad) did you learn this year?
What impacts are you set to make in the new year?
What things and areas are you getting better at?

All these should spur you to having clear and distinct goals. Even before its 1st of January, you can start accomplishing the new year's goals.

It is not enough to know them, it is more important to have them written out (Hab 2:2). It is my prayer that God works mightily in us to will and do. Amen.


Love and light.
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
