New Beginnings,New Way of Living

Hi to you all😃 And a happy new year !This is my first post in 2018 .My minds been filled with ALOT ! Most of all because this year is of great significance for me . It is in so many ways a new beginning . New work ! New Family !all because of a leap of faith and trusting God .

I pray that we all attempt to do the things we have always wanted to do and truly live out our dreams that God has put in our hearts .

I am a well of knowledge ,but learning can never be more than enough. Every day presents something new and i look forward to each day . We learn even more about ourselves and those around is 😃and i love getting to know new things about the people in my life.

I love you all ! Be blessed 🙏🏼

The Midst Of It

Even in the midst of trials and confusion, of pain ,of crisis of storms .. God is still God .

I mean nothing changes that our God is still on the throne , but there are times when somethings almost shift our position because Gods position never shifts. He is the same yesterday today and tomorrow. He remains worthy , He remains Sovereign , He remains Glorious .Question is what to we do in the Midst of It ..

This is where the issue of faith steps in ..I was diagnosed in 2015 with a condition Endometriosis 2 years ago. What do i do in the midst of it ? Its a chronic pain condition so yeah self explanatory . But i decided to praise God in the midst of it . It doesn’t change that He is God and it doesn’t change that He is Worthy . It doesn’t change that He loves me , that He made me ,It doesn’t change that the whole earth and everything in it bows down to His Name. He is still God and He is worthy so in my darkest moments i cling on to the only sure truth that i know and that is God loves me ,He has plans to prosper me not to harm me and no pain ,no disappointment, no hurt , no tears can change that ..

I remember when i was due for surgery and the doctors were pushing me to the surgery room .. I was so scared ,I felt like I had nothing but Jesus ..immediately the fear went away . I felt safe in Jesus hands ..

In the midst of it it always seems dark with no light ..but the light of God super-cedes any darkness and any fear . So I don’t know what you are going through but I know God is with you for His word says ” I will never leave you nor forsake you ” He is right there . Do you know that? What do you do in the midst of it! praise Him through it ! Bless Him through it Glorify Him through it ! Dance and worship through it !

He is the Only God 🙏🏼Theres none like Him.

I wish I could just share and tell you about the times that He showed up right on time ! That He kept me ! That He taught me ! I don’t know which words to say but its so apparent in my spirit 🙏🏼

God is a pillar of strength ,of love ,of joy . May His love shine bright on you and in your life that you may see His works , His love and faithfulness. You woke up this morning to see this day ,He’s brought you this far . Be blessed

Letting Go is Letting God

Many a times we are always holding on and refusing to let go for many different reasons which we justify in our own reality … I have come to a point in my life where letting go wasn’t necessarily a choice but a must .. At this point in my life God is teaching me to let go of what I feel is mine or who I have clenched and refused to let go … This is Gods time and its always best ! I let go to Let God .. God will show me where to go , He will guide with what to do and He is bringing people into my life ,destiny helpers …

Automatically in letting go , we let God take the wheel. We cant always be in control of every single situation. Be still and know that He is God 🙏🏼 Letting Go comes with letting God and letting God is acknowledging that you need God ,You cant control your life better than He can . Letting Go allows to stand expectant of what God has in store for you 🙏🏼Gods will is Gods best for us 🙏🏼🙏🏼

Loosing your hands also allows you to free them allowing them to be free to receive something else. Its not easy but its necessary .Whatever it is we fighting to keep shouldn’t be in our lives in the first place .If its meant to be there ,theres no need to fight to keep it . Let go of pain,let go of worry , let go of doubt ..Let go! Let go os self pity ,let go of guilt .Let it go! Await on God ,He has a plan for you Have a blessed day ,and let go to let God 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

The Made Up Mind

When you get ready for a trip ,you have to prepare for it. You pack up your clothes, you even pack snacks for the trip , sometimes you plan your rest stops to take a break if its a very long trip . You have an idea on how long it should take you to arrive at your destination , if need be you even use a GPS system . Most importantly you have to make sure that your are well equipped incase there is an emergency along the way .A spare tyre comes in handy in this case ..

Well in this regard our walk with Christ is also like a journey … now some

of us start with such great enthusiasm but I have learnt from my teacher in the Lord thats its not about how you start but rather how you finish . My concern and the topic i would like to discuss now is the time in between the Start and the Finish .What happens in between .

Here are my thoughts and yours are welcome … When you begin a race🏃🏼‍♀️ you cant begin it with a negative mindset or else you lose even before you begin ..There are certain seeds that have to be planted in your mind , those that build you and lift you , those that tell you that win or lose you will give it your best 🙏🏼Before you even begin ,the thinking has to be right .Because what you think is what matters.

Lets take it Ecclesiates 3 ,in summary it says There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens . I believe that once we make up our minds to serve and follow Christ all these seasons will come even if we haven’t made up our minds to serve Christ the seasons still come.

A time to be born a time to die,a time to plant and a time to uproot ,a time to kill and a time to heal ,a time to teardown and a time to build ,a time to weep and a time to laugh,a time to mourn and a time to dance ,a time to love ,a time to hate , a time to be silent and a time to speak .. Even in the midst of it once we say “yes ” to God this is a life-changing “yes” its not an ordinary yes ,but a powerful one that shakes the powers and principalities of darkness and their Kingdom !

When we say this yes, we have to have made up our minds such that we are aware that seasons will come and seasons will change ! Winter will come and so will Autumn , it wont be the same as Summer or Spring BUT when those seasons come we have to remember that God knew them and foresaw them and even told us about them , but our minds have to be made up in the truth of Gods word . God is home no matter how often we get lost or fall we have to remember where home is . We have to make up our minds .

Im not saying its going to be easy but I’m saying when all is said and done and we’ve given life all we can we have to remember to stand on Gods word and remember where home is . Child of God even when we read the bible none of the apostles even Jesus himself never has it easy but they stood strong because they made a decision .

There is Power in a made up mind ! A made up mind resembles a tree with strong roots ! Nothing can move that tree infact my dad used to say ” Tshidi tumelo ya gago e nne jaaka letlapa le le ikadileng ” ( your faith should be like an embedded rock ) he said even when you build a house you have to build around it because its foundation is so strong .

In my life , its never been easy . I have had my share of pain and hurts , faced the winds , they almost blew me off 🙃but i always come back home . I made up my mind . God is my home , there is no other better one .It wont ever be easy ,but it will always be worth it Be blessed

I am Kept!

Just because you don’t hear him speak doesn’t mean he doesn’t say anything

Just because you don’t see Him doesn’t mean Hes not there ..

At times we are tempted to listen and believe the people we see and hear …but the one who made me constantly reminds me.

Just because everyone has an opinion doesn’t mean they are right .Everyone has an opinion ,question is which one do you listen to ?

He reminds me that my life is not like everyones life ,His plan for me is uniquely grafted so suit me .That is why I was born in the day that I was born ,at that specific time to that specific couple . The one who made me reminds me …☺️

He is in control for He has kept me until now ,He has not brought me this far to leave me but to lift me ,that His name may be glorified🙏🏼

That nothing is out of place ,I am in the place that I am supposed to be at the time that is meant to be . Every single step that i take ,every move I make ,He knew it well before and nothing takes Him by surprise..

Keeps reminding me that i am KEPT ! I have been kept even before I was born He kept me .I am a kept woman of Christ ..In His Presence ,In His arms and in His Glory . He reminds me that there is no place too far from Him . He is always there🙏🏼

My God My Father ..I love you .Thank you for keepingme.

Its Not Impossible, its Im possible

Its not impossible, it just seems that way because your mind is still unable to figure out the “how”. Just because you cannot figure it out doesn’t mean its impossible. Just get started, get the wheel moving  , keep pushing.

For Nothing is Impossible with Christ Luke 1:37

I know from experience that there is always that voice that tries to convince you that you cannot do it and that You just aren’t capable . But you are able through Christ Jesus , and you are capable. If anything, you convince yourself that you cannot because you are afraid of the risk .. but you have to do do it even though you are afraid. Chose faith over the fear and do it anyway.

Dreams inside you, passions inside you burning to come out but you are afraid. Remember God did not give us the spirit of fear but of power and of love and of sound mind 2 Timothy 1:7.

Its not impossible . You can do it , don’t listen to what people are saying. Just remember your dreams.

Be blessed.

 

A light That Shines From Within….

Light, what is the definition of Light

  1. the natural agent that stimulates sight and makes things visible.
    synonyms: illuminationbrightnessluminescenceluminosityshining, gleaming, gleambrillianceradiancelustreglowingglowblazeglaredazzle

Light enables us to see, without light we cannot see, without it we do not know where we are going. Without it there would be lots of chaos because we would abide in the dark.Imagine that?

Definition of Darkness
  1. the partial or total absence of light.
    synonyms: darkblackness, absence of light, gloom, gloominess, dimness, dullnessmurk, murkiness, shadowiness, shadowshade, shadiness, dusktwilightgloaming;

    raretenebrosity
    “lights shone in the darkness”
    2.
    wickedness or evil.
    “the forces of darkness”
    synonyms: evilwickednesscorruptionsin, sinfulness, iniquityimmoralitydevilry, the Devil, hell

    “the forces of darkness”

    Out of these two one has power and dominion over the other etc. Darkness can never overpower light, but light can always overpower darkness. And so the word of God says that we are the light of the world. With the mentioned definitions above imagine what this means.

    It not only means we have power but means that where-ever we go we illuminate the area, we illuminate the person you are sitting next to. Something about you attracts attention to you because you carry with you the light of Jesus Christ of Nazareth himself. The word of God that is alive and sharper than any double edged sword is alive in you Hebrews 4:12.   Remember the same word says in

    John 1:1

    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    Hebrews 4:12

    12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

    Now that we understand the life and power that moves with the word of God which says You are the light of the world .

    Be reminded child of the Most High God!

    Be reminded that there is a powerful light that shines within you

    Be reminded that there is a purpose beyond you

    Be reminded to look to the hill from which cometh your help

    Be reminded of who you are in Christ and when…

    When you doubt yourself and doubt your strength

    Be reminded , that no matter what the circumstances and what you are going through that you are not here as your own will.

    Be reminded that the same spirit that rose Jesus from the dead lives in you

    Be reminded that it wont be easy, its never easy  BUT Be reminded

    Your strength, your pillar , your refuge, your shelter comes from the Lord

    So when arrows are sent your way

    Remember to go on your knees

    Remember the one who breathed life in you

    Remember the one who gave you your purpose

    Remember the one who is the author and finisher of your faith

    Remember

    The one who commands the seas

     

    At the end of the day ,its not about you

    But about the one who sent you.

    Wherever you go! This light goes with you

    Wherever you go! Lives will be changed

    Wherever you go! Eyes will be open

    Lives will never be the same around you.

    May the Glory of God be upon you.

    The Light of God is within you!

    Despite it ALL
