Obedience is the key to good life 

Whatever God directs you to do, whether His direction comes in form of an inner knowing in your heart, or through reading His Word, or through His messenger, you must obey. Whatever God tells you to do, just obey. Obedience is the key to a good life.

If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good things of the land ~ Isaiah 1:19

Trust and obey 🎶 for there’s no other way 🎵 to be happy in Jesus 🎼 but to trust and obey 🎤 Happy Friday! 👯👯‍♂️

Love is a choice 

Don’t wait to feel loving, choose to be loving. Make a decision to walk in love today and every day.

Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love each other deeply, from the heart ~ 1 Peter 1:22

Make a choice to be patient, kind, humble, forgiving, generous… basically loving today. Enjoy!

Scars become stars ✨ 

Sooner or later, we must come to the place where we stop feeling bitter, resentful and sorry for ourselves. There must come a time when we stop living in the past and asking why. Instead we must learn to let God turn our scars into stars

‘Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? ~ Isaiah 43:18-19

Forget what has been, the Lord is doing a new beautiful thing… He is making your scars shine as stars, let Him. Wonderful Wednesday to you! 🍒🍒🍒

“My mom is a Pastor…yay!”

My days are long, my nights very short and I am surprised I am not yet at that point where I complain… and I don’t think I will get there.

See, a lot has happened in the past two years. I have grown a great deal, both physically, I mean, I leaped over into the mighty thirties… I have grown emotionally; today I just smile at things that I would fuss over two years ago. The other day I was thinking about life and I posted, “life did not get any better, I became stronger!” There has also been tremendous intellectual growth ; my boss can attest to this, and I have grown so much spiritually… and here is how.

The other week, we had a Women’s Conference at our church, and I was honored to be the lead interpreter. Have u seen the #1 pointer to  my spiritual growth? You know an interpreter is a preacher in a different language, right?

Now, one morning as I prepared to go for the conference, I asked my babies to help me choose what to wear. So, Adonai chose a dress for me and I asked, “Is this fit for the pulpit?”

“The pulpit?” he asked with shock. He must have been wondering what his mom has gotto do with a pulpit in the middle of the week.

“Yes, I am an interpreter this whole week,” I responded without waiting for any further questions

“Mom, are you a pastor?” he asked. I could read the shock from his little eyes.

“No!” I denied frantically. Those that have been around me for some time know how much I do not like to be associated with that title, and it is all because I just can’t handle the responsibility that comes with being one. I just kent… I kennat!

“Yes you are!” he said all excited, “and I will tell all my friends that my mom is a Pastor!”

Yes, I froze just like you did. I was not about to argue with a five year old about that, we all know who would win in the end. He immediately went out to tell his brother and sister about his great discovery that early morning. He even forgot about the fact that we were choosing for mummy what to wear.

Anyway, me on the other hand, a lot was going on in my head. Firstly, I remembered the pride with which he said “my mom is a pastor” and I thought, “why do I ‘hate’ being a pastor so much?” “Why do I act like it is the worst thing that can ever happen to me?” And since I had no answer to those questions, I decided that from then, when someone addresses me as pastor, I will always remember Adonai’s smile that morning and smile back at them.

Enjoy the journey 

Whatever the present situation in life, whatever you are called to do, wherever you have been told to go, enjoy the journey. Don’t waste one day of the precious life God has given you.

I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full ~ John 10:10

Jesus came that you may have a full life; a life full of His goodness. So, no matter where you are at now, count it all joy and enjoy the journey! Terrific Tuesday to you🍓🍓🍓

The Word brings good success

Reading, meditating on and obeying the Word of God brings about good success.

Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful in doing everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful ~ Joshua 1:8

Read the Word out loud, silently and meditatively. Hide it in your heart, do what it says and have yourself a successful new week!🌼🌼🌼

Rely on the Holy Spirit 

There are days when you need to pray, but you just can’t, not because you are ‘prayerless’, but because you don’t know what to say in prayer. Each time you open your mouth to speak, the very words just bounce back at you. When faced with such situations, do not be dismayed. The Holy Spirit is right there just like ok your ‘prayerful’ days.

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us trough wordless groans. ~ Romans 8:26

When you feel like you can’t pray, just pray, the Holy Spirit is right there to help you in your weaknesses. Keep warm and dry this Sunday ☕️🌂

Rejoice now

Despite your problems, trials and temptations, be assured that you will benefit in the end. So look to the end and rejoice.

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking in anything ~ James 1:2-4

The testing of our faith is not to kill us, on the contrary, it is to make us mature, complete and not lacking in anything. Rejoice now, better days are ahead! Fantabulous Friday 🍟🍟🍟

The Word transforms

Take hold of God’s Word and plant it deep in your heart by reading and meditating on it every day. As you look into the Word your mind will be renewed and consequently you will be transformed.

Do not conform to the patter of this world, but he transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing and perfect will ~ Romans 12:2

Start on a journey of mind transformation today, read the Word of God daily! Have an awesome Thursday 🌹🌹🌹
