Why are my emotions so crazy?

, , ,

Hello my fellow human beings,
I hope you are all enjoying your day/evening!

As you can see from the title of this post I will be discussing about emotions! Lately I feel like my emotions have taken me on one crazy rollercoaster, but I must say I have learnt a few things whilst been taken for a ride. So imma cut to the chase…

1. Try not to let your emotions govern your day. Don’t let that terrible morning feeling that you ‘may’ experience, set the tone for the rest of your day. You know how we humans can be, one minute we are filled with rage/anger, and the next we’ve fallen head over heels in love with someone (extreme I know but it does happen). And vice versa, we can wake up happy but when we step out of our homes, and step into the realm of public transport we can completely lose it! Even when things don’t ‘feel’ like they are going right, and the day ahead seems very bleak, speak out words of truth, declare Gods word over your life and stay positive!

2. Ladies ladies ladies, I know this statement may offend some of you, but I got to put it out there (I’m talking to myself too), stop blaming your bad attitude or outbursts of anger on hormones😯😯😯! Yup I said it! Over the past few months I would justify my improper conduct on the fact that my period was a week/couple of days away! Personally I feel that such a mindset is unacceptable, I shouldn’t use it as an excuse to be snappy with people, because at the end of the day they are not responsible for the shedding of my uterine wall! If someone physically assaulted someone just because they were having a bad day, nobody would throw them a pity party, because such behaviour is not right. What we must realise is that though we may not physically assault a person, verbal assault (the words we use), can be just as damaging as a punch in the face.

3. Appreciate what you have! Appreciate the wonderful people God has placed in your life! It is very easy to get frustrated by people who are constantly around you, in life we will step on each others toes. But my observation is that we should be grateful that we have individuals around us! We should be thankful that we have family (that’s if you do have family), because having family is truly a blessing! So let us stop focusing on the people, or friends that have disappointed us, let us enjoy the relationships we do have, with the people God has placed in our lives! If this means spending more quality time with younger siblings DO IT, if it means having a one to one with your mum DO IT, if it means participating in an activity with your dad DO IT, if it means having to travel a little further, or spend a bit more cash to meet with the special people in your life DO IT! As the time you lose, you can never get back!

Ephesians 4:26 ‘and do not let the sun go down on your anger’.
Colossians 3:13 ‘Make allowance for each other’s faults, & forgive anyone who offends you’.

 

Peace out y’all have a BEAUTIFUL day (yes I am happy 😊, is it that obvious 🙈)

…..

Love y’all

Learning to be quiet

, , , ,

Hey people how y’all doing?

It feels great to be able to hit you up with another post, I’m also glad to announce that Christian Lady After Gods Own Heart, has been up and running (not running as perfectly as I’d like), for 3 years!!! Woop woop, can I get an Amen and a Hallelujah. And I have to say that it has got a lot to do with you guys my followers/readers/those who just like to pree! Thank you SOOOO much, I do pray that God will bless you with an unusual level of peace.

So swiftly moving forward, I just wanted to share a couple things with you all today, which I believe God has been speaking to me about. The first thing is to be CONFIDENT in the Lord. Be confident in His timings, be confident in how and why He does things. Don’t allow anxiety to rule over your life. I know the concept of allowing someone else take total control of your life is scary, especially when we live in a society which encourages living an independent life, but trust me when I say this, Gods got your back 😄. So stop trying to do it all by yourself, and have faith in the Lords qualities and abilities.

Secondly I’d like to share two scriptures with you, which have really fascinated me! The first Psalm 62:5 (My soul waits for the Lord in silence, for my expectation is from Him) & the second Lamentations 3:26 (It is good that a man should hope and quietly wait for the salvation of Jehovah). The words which caught my attention from these two verses, was the word quiet! Like what does it mean to be quiet? How do you quietly wait before the Lord? Then it hit me, even though I profess with my mouth that I trust God to take care of the situations which take place in my life, my mind is still cluttered with thoughts/plans of how I am going to make things work out. I am constantly scheming! This is far from quiet. I believe being quiet is a mindset thing.

Over the years I have realised that one of the things I find difficult to do, is to be quiet before the presence of God, I always feel like there is a need for talking/noise. But what we must realise is that in life, sometimes God requires us to be still. Being quiet can be a way in which we show God that we trust in Him completely, it’s a great way in which we can learn to exercise our faith. Being quiet also decreases the chances of us complaining, because in life there will be times where we will have to wait for breakthrough. During that waiting period we ought to wait quietly with a thankful heart and avoid complaining altogether!

Finally I believe that it is necessary to be quiet at times in order for our minds to focus on the sovereignty and power of God! When we focus our minds on God fear is removed and stripped away. Fear can have no room when we are in the presence of God who blesses our minds with a peace which surpasses all human understanding. So run with the truth that it is good to be silent at times, it is natural for us to be lost for words because of Gods awesomeness and holiness (Habakkuk 2:20 ‘But Jehovah is in His holy temple, let all the earth keep silent before Him’).

Beautiful ladies do not allow fear to govern your day, be confident in the God you serve, and learn to quiet your mind with the peace of the Lord.

The godly lady sends love to all her sisters reading this post.

God bless

So I have a crush on a guy at work!

, , , , ,

Hey Ladies (& gents who may be reading)

My sincere apologies for the long break I’ve taken, I will try to keep up to date with posting at least once a month, with the help of the Holy Spirit. But I do hope you are all well, and have had (or are having) an AMAZING summer.

So lets cut to the chase, from the title it is pretty easy for one to guess what I’ll be talking about… LOVE/LUST/THAT BUTTERFLY FEELING YOU GET IN YOUR TUMMY. So yup truth be told, as of present, I do have a crush on a guy at my work place. For some strange reason I can’t even act normal around him. The last time I saw him in the corridor I acted like a 5 year old. It’s just so annoying, literally every time I see him it’s like common sense decides to leave my body. And simply put, I CANNOT EXPLAIN WHY I LIKE HIM 😦 [other than the fact that he’s like 6’4, is built like a rugby player, and has an amazing beard]. Yes these are ‘exterior’ qualities I like, but I don’t KNOW the guy. Sounds like infatuation right.

For a while I felt so angry with myself for having these feelings. But then it hit me, as human beings its natural for us to appreciate Gods work of art. Wether it be His beautiful creation, or another human being made in His image. Theres no issue in admiring something, or an individuals quality. Issues occur when we become obsessed and begin to allow that object take Gods place in our life. If you spend most of your time thinking about your ‘crush’, then you’ve turned that person into an idol! How you may ask? Well because your whole life starts to revolve around them, you try with all your strength to please that individual, which is basically an act of worship! Remember we all have emotions/feelings, and we can’t just turn them of. Just ensure that you don’t allow your emotions/feelings to control you, and lead you to sin!

So some useful tips on handling yourself when you have a crush.

1. Avoid the danger of becoming obsessed!!! Every time a thought of that person comes into your head, use it as a moment to pray for them! (Turn what the devil intends for evil around for good Genesis 50:20)! Remember it is NOT a sin to be tempted, Jesus was, yet never sinned!
2. Tell someone about it for accountability sake, so they can join hands and pray with you, so that you don’t fall into the sin of idol worship. And so that thoughts of that person don’t overtake your whole life! (James 5:16).
3. Stay occupied, when your not doing anything but lazing around, its easy for your mind to travel. Get involved in activities that interest you, such as sports, music, volunteering etc.
4. BE YOURSELF! It is very important that you are honest with yourself, do not deny who you are in order to get the attention of your ‘crush’. Try not to do silly little things which you’ll later regret.
5. Talk to God. God delights in every detail of your life (Psalm 37:23), just pour out your heart to Him, tell Him how you feel, just tell Him about everything. Ask Him to help you not to fall into temptation, ask Him to take total and full control over your emotions.

I won’t lie to you and say it will be easy to put your crush behind you, in order for you not to become obsessed with them, but with God all things are possible. I’d advise you to try some of the tips suggested, and see if it works for you!

But one major thing I’d love for y’all to take today, is that no relationship on earth can compare with the relationship you have with God. Getting into a toxic relationship with your crush is not worth it, as it will surely hinder the relationship you have with God!!!

LOVE YOU ALL & GOD BLESS

Why do bad things happen to good people?

Tags

Hey beautiful people, how y’all doing?

Once again apologies for the delayed post, I’d just like to take the time to say a big thank you to every consistent follower of my blog posts, even though I’m not so consistent in posting, love you guys dearly!

One of the main issues which has been tugging on my heart strings, is the very big question which I believe most human beings have! ‘Why do good things happen to bad people’. I have had so many questions to ask God lately after hearing bad news, after bad news, after bad news. It can be very overwhelming when so many negative things happen to you at the same time, you pretty much feel snowed under. I was so angry at the fact that a few young people I knew of passed away, I just couldn’t comprehend why such things were happening.

But then God spoke out to me, saying He has feelings to, He cares just as much as we humans do when a loved one dies (psalm 116:15). God also pointed me to the fact that a lot of the evil taking place around the world is as a result of human hands e.g. murder, rape, war, toxic chemicals being used to make food, cutting corners when building in order to save money at the expense of another human beings life, corruption etc, the list goes on. As human beings we have the responsibility to look after our planet earth Genesis 2:15. The truth is that when we do not look after that which is around us, of course things are bound to fall apart and go wrong.

Also what I’ve noticed is that when tragedy strikes people join together and become much closer than before. Deaths bring family members together who haven’t met together in decades. Terror attacks lead people to give a helping hand to a human being they’ve never seen before, people are touched to give and to pray for others. All this leads me to the passage ‘What the enemy meant for evil, God intended it for good ‘Genesis 50:20. God also had to point me to the fact that there is NO evil in Him, God doesn’t send evil into our lives, which can be very heard for our minds to digestive at times.

It then dawned on me that we shouldn’t be asking the question ‘why do bad things happen to good people’ as it doesn’t solve any problems. What we should be asking is ‘what good can come out of this bad situation’.

We shouldn’t wallow in self pity, neither should we surround ourself with pessimistic individuals. During bad times we ought to look at what we can learn from the situation, see how we can bring peace to others during their challenges and also look for doors of opportunity.

What we must also try to remember, is that when going through challenges we build up our character and endurance 2 Corinthians 6:4-6. Hardships provide us with the chance to trust in God, and we learn not to become solely dependent on ourselves.

Furthermore we must understand that the most brutal murder of all, of an innocent man, brings hope for ALL mankind. Jesus death on the cross brings salvation to all those who believe, free of charge. He was whipped so that we can be healed, and His hands were pierced so our sins can be forgiven Isaiah 53:5. What a bloody yet beautiful site.

Finally I’d just like to encourage the church to be a light in darkness, especially in this day and age where there is so much evil around us. We should be reaching out to the troubled in the community, helping those who have faced tragedies. For churches in England (around London to be precise), how can we reach out to the Grenfell tower victims, or to families devastated by the recent London terror attacks? Also I’d like everyone to keep in mind that you don’t have to wait around for others in order for you to carry out an act of kindness, you can bring positive change as an individual. All it takes is for one person to rise up against injustice in order to make a difference.

Remember think ‘what good can come out of this bad situation’

LOVE you all and God bless

Friendship

The importance of friendship

Hey people, how y’all doing??
I hope y’all are blessed because I sure am!

I just want to drop a quick word of encouragement for my fellow readers on friendship, as it’s what the Lord has been laying upon my heart to discuss!

I believe that friendship is extremely important, friends are sometimes the very people God uses to get us out of our moments of darkness (troubling times). The book of Proverbs (27:17) says that as iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend (NLT version). There may even be times in our lives where it is our close friends who are the ones to run to our aid, quicker than family members. This could be for several reasons, one being distance even the bible describes such an instance in Proverbs 27:10<< go check it out! The fact of life is that we need people in our lives, human beings are created to have meaningful relationships (that is not to say every single person you come into contact will be your best friend for life)!

I just want to speak to you right now from personal experience. Reading through the bible I see, that Jesus had His friends, the 12 disciples, and His 3 closest buddies out of the 12, James, John and Simon-Peter (well in my personal opinion they seemed to be the closest to Christ, as they witnessed His transfiguration etc). Just knowing that Christ had His disciples around Him most of the time, highlighted to me the importance of having friends around you, who can uplift you. If Jesus had friends, I think we should also desire to have good friendships, as we are called to mirror Christ’s ways. Over time I found myself in a place where life got to me, I was to busy to keep up with friends, and pretty much slacked with my communication! And if someone didn’t bother to contact me in a long time, I wouldn’t bother to initiate conversation. I then began to start praying to God to bless me with more godly friendships, something along the lines of “God I need more people in my everyday life that I can relate with, about you”. But then God convicted me, and pointed me to the fact that I already have many friends around me (some of which I can call family), these relationships I took for granted and didn’t truly appreciate. God was calling me to spend quality time with those around me, and further improve the quality of our friendship!

So I just want t leave you with these few tips, we ALL need friends, appreciate the ones you have instead of pushing them to the side in order to find that ideal/perfect friend. (No one is perfect and if you are pushing your friends aside to chase fantasy friendship, that doesn’t make you a good friend at all). And my last point is not to put your trust totally in man, but in God. Even the scriptures show us that Jesus was aware of human nature (we let each other down sometimes) < John 2:24 (NLT).Friends will let you down, as I’m sure you’ve let some of your friends down at some point, but God is the One we we can always rely on, Who will always be there in your time of need, Who is always there to listen. Having friends is essential, but the best friendship we could ever experience in life, is being in a relationship with God!

Enjoy your day, and have a blessed week all.
Thanks for reading, love you guys!!!

Don’t allow fear to hold you back THIS YEAR

Tags

, , , , ,

Apologies for the inactivity on Christian lady after Gods own heart, it ’twas a tough/emotional end to 2016 for me. My mind felt like it was literally being shipwrecked by a wave of differing emotions. But the Lord is good and I can say that I felt the Spirit uplift me during my church’s NYE service.

So anyways imma cut to the chase. ‘DO NOT FEAR’ (Isaiah 41:10). I can fully understand why God repeatedly tells us in the bible that we should not fear (over 300 times). I believe this is because fear is something which every human being faces at some point throughout their lifetime. I would like to encourage you to not allow the fear of failure, to prevent you from fulfilling that which you are potentially destined, to achieve in life. If something doesn’t work out, just learn to move on. The good thing is you now know, not to repeat that same mistake again. Every single mistake you make, brings you closer to your breakthrough. If it means you have to try 1000 times, keep holding your head high all the way through the 999 unsuccessful attempts, knowing that with each attempt you become a better you.

And finally, I would love to encourage you not to live in constant fear of Satan and his demons! You MUST know that Christ has already defeated Satan for you! God is all powerful and is NOT the opposite of Satan. No one can compare to God, as He is the creator of ALL things, He made everything out of nothing (ex nihilo)! Did you know that demons SHUDDER (shudder: Is to tremble/shake as a result of fear)???!! Check out James 2:19 demons fear God.

I hope this short piece encourages, and motivates you to be ALL God has called you to be! Don’t give up on your innate gifting, which is unique to you, and you alone.

God bless guys and happy new year.
Love you all, and thanks for showing your support by reading this message.

The truth about your body.

Hey pretty ladies

Today on walk with me, I’ll be talking about HEALTH. Woop woop. For some reason there are many religious individuals who believe that the body is a necessary evil, which we have to put up with as long as we live on this earth. Some extremists also believe that we should never give our bodies any form of satisfaction! Well I disagree with that viewpoint quite a bit, and I will go onto discussing why!

One when God created Adam from the dust of the earth He said ‘His creation was good’ (creation being Adams body) [Genesis 1:31]. And if the human body is so evil, why would it be the place where God chooses to dwell (1 Corinthians 3:16)? (That is when a a person invites God into their life, professing Jesus as their personal Lord and saviour)! The bible says that our bodies are temples and have been bought by a high price (1 Corinthians 6:20). God doesn’t live in buildings built by human hands (That is not to say the presence of God cannot be manifested in a church building), but God chooses to live within us, once we accept Him as our Saviour! This tells me that the body is not evil, and it is not a sin to want to look after your body! After all If we consistently abuse our bodies, how can we expect God to use us for His glory, if we are continually run down and exhausted because of our unhealthy lifestyle.

I’ve kinda jumped onto the gym bandwagon over the past 6 months (I LOVE weightlifting by the way, just thought I’d share that fact lol), I feel that going to the gym to train my body, has helped me grow in my faith in Christ. It has led me to discipline myself in terms of having self-control when eating food, which helps me overcome gluttony (Philippians 3:19-20)! I have now developed a schedule that I like to stick to, which ensures that I plan my day ahead of time so that I stay organised. I always like to remind myself, that if I have time for leisure, I also should have time for God. I cannot allow my body to tell me I’m to tired to pray when I’ve spent over an hour at the gym (Most times I do pray before attending the gym, but I do like to have that quiet time in the evening, if I’ve had a busy/rushed morning). Training has highlighted to me how precious time is, and has helped me learn to put God first in my life. You may be asking how?, so I’m going to tell you just how!

Well going to the gym, has provided me with the open door to share my faith with people. The gym staff always tell me, ‘your different from others’, and ‘your so polite, there’s not that many polite people around anymore’. Now this tells me that I can evangelise to people, through living out the word of God! Furthermore people are beginning to notice my weight loss…YAAAY, this causes them to ask me questions on how I did it, which then provides me with the great opportunity to ENCOURAGE people. This is wonderful for me because encouragement is one of the gifting’s which God has blessed me with! So it’s great that I get to develop my gifting, whilst having fun, and bringing glory to God at the same time (1 Corinthians 10:31).

Just a quick note for us gym goers to take on board. Be very careful not to be self-obsessed or idolise your body. This is not a wise idea, because there is so much more to you than the ounces of muscle you have on your body (Luke 12:23). When that muscle begins to shrink, what becomes of your life then? Who will you be??? I know for some people weight lifting is a career, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, just don’t become so big headed, and prideful, as I’m sure you know, pride comes before a fall (Proverbs 16:18). The devil also fell into the sin of pride, he wanted Gods glory, he wanted to be worshipped like God, but in the end his plan failed (Isaiah 14:12-15). Remember that God will never share His glory with anybody (Isaiah 42:8). But hey there’s nothing wrong with admiring Gods creation (your body), and ensuring that it is well groomed and looked after, because the bible does say we are SKILFULLY MADE (Psalm 139:14). And I do believe in order to preserve a skilfully handmade pot (our bodies) , we need to try to live a healthy lifestyle, if we are blessed with the opportunities to do so!

Anyways I hope you enjoyed reading this short post on health, and I pray it was beneficial to you. I also hope that you gained some clarity and biblical truths about the body, as I’m a firm believer of the statement that ‘if you know the truth you’ll be set free’ (John 8:31-32). I’d just like to inform you that I will be doing a follow up post on this topic, which will expose some ways that helped me lose weight. So yeah be prepared for more tips swinging your way! And don’t forget you are made in Gods image (Genesis 1:26), therefore your body is a beautiful sight before the eyes of God!

Peace out.

Fasting & Gyming đŸ˜Ž

Tags

, , , , ,

Hello people
Today I’ll be hitting you up with another health post. Today I’d like to talk to you about fasting and gyming, I’m sure you may have already gathered that from the title of this post, but I feel a gentle reminder is always nice! So there are different types of fasting described in the bible (Matthew 6:16-18)! Partial fasting (abstinence from pleasant food [Daniel 10:3]) dry fasting (abstinence from both food and water [Esther 4:16])and fasting (when liquids are consumed). I like to look as fasting as abstaining from food, and I believe in order for one to commence a dry fast you need to specifically hear from God, as doing a dry fast for an extended period of time, without Gods direction can certainly lead to ill health, and even death.

As a believer I believe that fasting is an essential part of the Christian Faith. Just as Jesus encourages us to pray through scripture, He also encourages us to fast. Fasting should not only be done in emergency situations, fasting should be a way of life, something a believer should engage in regularly! I know this because Jesus very words where ‘when you fast’, not ‘if’, this shows me that I should not neglect fasting, or see it as unimportant! Christ taught people how to pray, and how not to pray. He also done the same with fasting, scripture tells us what not to do whilst fasting (wear a sullen fast, and or broadcast your act of fasting to the whole world). Overall I just wanted to emphasis that fasting is just as important as prayer, as you can see from scripture there is definitely correlation between the two (Matthew 6:5-18)! Another major point I’d like you to take on board is that I am not a physician, and if you are not in the best shape to fast, don’t do so. Especially if you suffer from a medical condition, you really should consult your doctor before fasting. Not everyone can fast because of certain reason, such as ill health, do NOT beat yourself up about, neither should you condemn yourself. God sees your heart, and you can honour Him in other ways! He understands your struggles, and He loves you, remember that.

In my case I fast on a weekly basis, as I believe God has called me to do so. This has a direct impact on my overall schedule, as my fasting days can fall on the day I plan to go the gym. I will be very honest with you, I train easier at the gym, I ensure that I don’t go overboard, and I do take water along with me (as I usually do not do dry fasting)! Surprisingly I find that I work at my full potential on my fasting day, and I get a sudden outburst of strength, which I personally believe is a result of my fasting). My body doesn’t actually feel weaker, and my mind is stronger and more focused! I find though that occasionally if I have not drank enough water on my fast day, I sometimes tend to get a slight headache. If you do encounter such symptoms, don’t worry they’re normal, just make sure you stay hydrated! Obviously everyone’s body is different, so once again if needs be consult your physician, if you intend to workout and fast at the same time. I just wanted to encourage those out there thinking of doing so, that it IS possible!

Have you ever found yourself in a dilemma where you forget your water bottle, and your gym has no water in the water tank, and no cups in sight? Yet you still manage to pull through that intense workout! Sometimes you may even wonder how you done it? Such situations cause me to reflect on the fact that in certain circumstances we have have no option but to push through, it’s all in the mind (power is perfected in weakness)! If you believe you can do something you can, if you believe you can still go to the gym on your fast day, then you can!

You can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens you (Philippians 4:13)!

A useful prayer tip

Tags

, , ,

Hey lovely ladies, how y’all doing?

 

Today I’m going to cut to the chase, I’m going to share a tip on prayer with you all, which I find to be extremely useful.

 

Ever had a time in your life where you found praying to be a challenge? Well today I’m going to openly say that I’ve been through phases in my life where I have literally struggled to pray, and I mean really struggled. I can also tell you that a few of my Christian friends have also found it difficult to pray, at certain points in their life. So if you find yourself in such a dilemma, don’t stress, you are not alone, trust me! I believe that for many Christians, prayer is a vital part of their faith, it’s how they communicate with God. Prayer is something that we should be incorporating into our everyday life, as it is one of the things which keeps us on the straight and narrow. Furthermore, the Bible encourages us to ‘Pray without ceasing’ (Thessalonians 5:17), and also states, that ‘we ought to pray without losing heart’ (Luke 18:1). So then why is prayer so difficult for some of us? Well I can tell you one reason why, and that’s because the devil simply doesn’t want us to pray. He wants to silence us, because he knows that our prayers move mountains. And sometimes I have to remind myself that, by speaking aloud the words ‘I can move mountains from my room’.

 

Quite often I find that when I want to pray, or whilst I’m praying, that’s when random thoughts start to pop into my head. Distracting thoughts, thoughts which cause me to start to worry and fear etc. Then I start to get frustrated about the fact that my mind is not concentrated on prayer, and spend a lot of time asking God to forgive me for my lack of attentiveness, to the point I’m almost throwing myself a pity party. Then the Spirit moves me, and causes me to rise up, and then I begin to declare the word of God out loud, in order to silence the lies of the enemy.

 

With fervent communion with God, a solution on how to keep my prayers and mind focused, popped into my head. I’d just like to make it clear that this tip of mine is NOT law, I just thought it would be useful to share with others. It may be of help to some of you, but it does not have to be strictly followed. The practical way in which I found helped give my prayer life a boost, was using the alphabet. I can firmly say that I do not use the alphabet to pray every day, and I have not been doing so lately, but I do believe that it did help refuel my prayer life, for that particularly dry season I was in. My greatest boost came from my number one supporter the Holy Spirit, who constantly encouraged me, and cheered me on during prayer.

 

I will now go on to sharing an example with you, of how exactly I utilized the alphabet, during my quiet time. (Also if you have kids, or teach children in Sunday school, I believe that this tool would be a great way of teaching them how to pray).

Please see table below.

 

 

Prayer point Point beginning with A
A Shop/Business Abercrombie & Finch, Adobe etc.
A Person Anne, Amy, Annie, Arthur, Adam etc.
A fruit Apricot, Apple, Avocado etc.
A country Antarctica, Angola, America, Antigua, Afghanistan etc.
A State/County Arizona (America), Avon (England) etc.
A vegetable Asparagus
An Animal Antelope

 

 

 

 

 

Now you may find it strange that I have prayed over things such as fruits, vegetables and wild animals, but God has actually given us authority over His creation (Genesis 1:26). When he placed Adam in the garden of Eden, Adam’s responsibility was to care for that garden, and everything in it (Genesis 2:15). Therefore, I see it as our obligation to pray over the production of our fruits and veg. To pray against famine, and to pray that farmers have a bountiful harvest, because at the end of the day, farming is where we get much of our food from. And yes we should pray for animals, because extinction of one species, has a knock on effect on the whole ecosystem, and when God created the animals He was pleased with what He saw, because he said ‘It was good’ (Genesis 1: 21 &25). The bible states that a righteous person cares for the need of animals (Proverbs 12:10). I believe it’s possible to care for animals without being a vegetarian, but that’s just a whole new topic in itself.

Overall I hope this post has been inspiring for you all, and that each of you have taking something away from it. But bye for now, take care and God bless.

 

Love Christian lady after Gods own heart.
