Love Is The Greatest Of All


Dear Sisters,


A lot has happened lately, and of the lessons learnt, the lesson on living an impactful/purposeful life stands out the most.

Lately, I wake up asking for grace to love more. After all that is the fundamental and greatest command - to love God and love our neighbors as ourselves. 



Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ (Matthew 22:37‭, ‬39) 

No wonder Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 13 discusses at length that if we have all things but don't have love, it's vanity - ICorithians 13:1-13.

That is why I come to the conclusion that our purpose is to love. 

One of the most talked about yet complex issue ever is the subject of P.U.R.P.O.S.E 

Ever wondered why some acclaimed 'successful ' people commit suicide? They simply lacked fulfilment, their riches/fame notwithstanding. 

Walking in purpose is the only thing that counts in the end. It is about living out the glory of God in any capacity we find ourselves by showing love.


How often should we work in purpose?

Daily! 

Even when we don't feel we have love to give, we should love.

How do I walk in love purposefully? Rely on the Holy Spirit.

I find myself asking the Holy Spirit to help me show love in all that I do. It could be by speaking or writing soothing words. 

We are placed in diverse communities and can express love to all: 



1. As daughter of God - we love through worship
2. As a WOTGK - we love through our words, checking up on each other. 
3.Wife - To love our husbands unconditionally.
4. Mother - to love through Godly parenting
5. Colleague /business owners : we are admonished to encourage one another, be a blessing to others and to be considerate.

We must acknowledge this call upon our lives and stretch our capacity to love.

The bible is our greatest revelation of what love is. The more we dwell in the Word the more we get aware of what is expected of us by God.

In the end, purpose is not far fetched, it is us living our lives daily as God as commanded us to in various capacities. 

Purpose is not abstract. It is real and actual. 


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
