Thanksgiving Letter to God

 

 Dear Sisters,

Meerrryyy Christmas! 😁 


I couldn't hold myself back from writing to you this beautiful Christmas eve evening. It has been such an eventful year. In all, here am I writing to you, and there you are reading. What a joy!πŸ™Œ And Jesus alone be praised. 


Sis, I want you to know that I am thankful for you. I am grateful for the Women of the God-Kind community; it has been such a blessing. 


If everyone was asked to describe the year, I bet we all will have our diverse stories. However, I would like us to look beyond the "ought to-haves" "shouldn't haves" and "should haves". I want you and I to focus on the reason for the season -Jesus- and thank Him. 


At the beginning of the month, I began to document my thanksgiving points and realised I had 40 of them today. My goal is to write at least 50 by the end of the year. 


The songwriter that said count your blessing, name them one by one is so spot on. Many events here and there make us forget indeed how good God is, but when we document these things, we would be pleasantly surprised by His goodness. 


So dear Sisters, as we celebrate the birth of Christ and count down to 2021, I encourage you to make a list of what you are grateful for in the year 2020. In fact, thanksgiving is a valid way to recalibrrate,  rejuvenate, and refresh.


Remember, when you are thank-full, your tank remains full. Enter with the password, "thank you!" - Psalm 100


Have a Merry Christmas and a glory and exploits filled 2021. 


Loads of Love πŸ’• , 


Your Sis

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

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

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
