GOD SPEAKS TO US


Hello Beautiful,

I believe you are having an amazing month already. May the God of Israel defend you, preserve you and perfect all that concerns you. Amen!

Today, I would like to share on something so talked about yet misconceived by many. A lot of times we ask, does God speak to us? I have at some point wondered if I was worthy of being spoken to by God despite being born again. The reason for these questions are not far-fetched, I felt God was too big and busy up there to speak to "little me". What a line of reasoning!

Let me tell you how the Holy Spirit (HS) debunked this line of thought for me, he used my most superior boss (Godwin Emefiele) at work to illustrate this:

HS: does Emefiele speak to you?
Me: Yes, through my departmental directors and he does not even know me. From time to time, these directors re-emphasize to us the institution's vision and we are expected to be committed to it.
HS: If your boss who does not know you speaks to you, how much more you, whom I know.
Me: *stunned at His sense of humor*
HS: First, you should remember that you have the mind of Christ so the thoughts and ideas you get, are God given - that is God communicating with you. Also, you have the word of God- the Bible. It remains the primary means God speaks to believers but unfortunately you do not spend as much time as you should with it.

God also speaks to us through his choice men and the anointed materials He puts in their hearts to publish.

I hope that the next time you wonder if God speaks to you, you'll remember these things. God is too mind-full of you not to talk to you.

A question for you though: are you listening to Him?


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
