More Than Enough

Growing up, I remember whenever it was about to rain, we would line buckets outside, positioning them directly under the roof to get a good amount of water from the downpour. Those buckets were filled most of the time, and we would have to get other buckets till the rain stops or till will run out of buckets. However, there were few occasion that we had to take our buckets in without water, but even in those times, there was the peace we had that we had prepared; the rain just was not enough.

Preparation makes one feel empowered, and beyond empowerment, it is an expression of faith. It takes faith to prepare for what is not seen. A pregnant woman believes she would give birth, so she goes shopping.
Like Noah, he believed God would send the flood, so he built the ark.
Remember the Widow in 2 Kings 4, whose oil multiplied? The oil
multiplied until she had no empty containers then the oil stopped. Had she waited to see the oil multiply before getting containers, she would never have seen the multiplication. As believers, God prides in us when we move by faith, for without faith, it is impossible to please God.

Taking steps at the word of God I have come to realise is one of the secrets to more than enough. Peter had toiled all night, and Jesus told him to launch his net, and after explaining his efforts, he said: “nevertheless at thy word…” What is God telling you to do this season?
Which course is he leading you to take? What unpopular move is
directing you towards? How is He asking you to enlarge your capacity?

Enlarging your capacity before seeing is what qualifies you to
receive. In our kingdom, we don’t see to act, we act to see.
Let me wrap this up with Isiaih 54 verses 1-4 (MSG):
“Sing, barren woman, who has never had a baby.
 Fill the air with song, you who’ve never experienced childbirth!
 You’re ending up with far more children than all those childbearing
women.” GOD says so!
Clear lots of ground for your tents!
Make your tents large. Spread out! Think big! Use plenty of rope,
drive the tent pegs deep.
You’re going to need lots of elbow room for your growing family.
You’re going to take over whole nations; you’re going to resettle
abandoned cities.
Don’t be afraid—you’re not going to be embarrassed. Don’t hold
back—you’re not going to come up short.”

From the above verses, we see God told the woman to first make room for more than enough, only then will she experience more than enough.

Again, I ask, what has God told you to do to experience more than
enough? Get working Sis!

Loads of love,

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
