Letter to my unrevealed husband

Tags

, , , , ,

I don’t know you yet, but the first thing I want you to know about me is, I’m in LOVE WITH JESUS.

I know without a shadow of a doubt that, no person or thing can take His place in my life.

But honey there’s still room for me to love on you, love on you like how Christ has called me to love you.

 I hope my loyalty to Christ shows you that I will surely be loyal to you.

I wouldn’t dare break your heart, because breaking your heart would be like breaking Christ’s.

I hope you understand that one of the ways in which I intend to express my love for Christ, will be through loving you persistently, in both the good and the not so good seasons. Because the more I fellowship with Christ, and desire to know Him more intimately, the better the wife I will be for you. Because I know that He will give me all the strength, the passion, and the abilities which I need to be able to care, love, and provide for you wholeheartedly.

 

I don’t know what you look like, but I know I’ll love your looks, because I know that when God created you, He specifically thought about me. And I know I will have the great privilege of being able to look at a being made in the likeness of my heavenly Father, on a regular basis. I know you resemble my heavenly Father, and I cannot wait to see you eye to eye. But for now I will continue to uplift us in prayer until we meet, face to face. Yes that’s right, I won’t just pray for you, otherwise that would be so selfish of me. But my prayers are also that God moulds me into the women, YOU my husband need me to be.

 

Honey just remember whenever you are feeling alone or deserted, that God is with you, and he will never leave you nor forsake you.

And whenever you have to make a difficult decision, remember to always be attentive to the Spirit of God, for the bible says that you should acknowledge Him in ALL your ways, and He will direct your path. The book of Isaiah also says ‘your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left’. Plus honey I want you to know that even if those around you don’t support you in your decision, the decision you made with inspiration from the Holy Spirit. I do, I support you and I will continue to pray for you, and cheer you on.  

If ever you feel weak, just know that God will make you strong.

Baby even if you fall, just know that you will always get back up again, for God says the righteous man falls 7 times but gets back up.

Whenever you feel like giving up, just remember that you can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens you.

And baby I just want you to feel encouraged, if ever you feel lonely, or tired of still being single, or tired of seeing your friends getting into relationships, and being married, whilst you have no mate. Do not become bitter with God, but rather LOOK TO GOD. Take time out for just you and Him, so you can draw strength from his life-giving water. The bible also says none shall lack her mate, remember that. I pray that thoughts of lust will not overwhelm you, I pray that you will not have to depend on lustful thoughts or fantasises to keep you going through your season of singleness. I say this because Lord knows I struggle with this issue myself, but I’ve found strength from Gods word, and seeking Gods face.

Honey one thing I do ask of you, is that you pray for me, for your prayers are the best gifts you can ever give me. Your prayers are something which I will ALWAYS need.

 

Lord I pray that you continue to guide and protect my husband. I also pray that you make me the wife you have called me to be, exclusively for my husband. God help me to be even gentler, help me to be an individual who is slow to anger, Lord control my speech, and tame my tongue. Help me to be a godly wife, and also a godly mother. Help me to raise my children in a way which pleases you greatly. Help me to love my husband in a way which pleases you greatly.

 

And finely my dear husband I love you, but God loves you more. I can never do what Christ has already done for you, or will do for you. I cannot complete you because Christ already makes you complete, neither can I replace the position which Christ has in your life.  But I sure will, be able to share in the great moments in which God blesses us with as a married union.

Love from

Your wife. Xxx

What they call Sleep Paralysis

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

Have you ever experienced a time in your life where you are in the process of waking up, and you feel a strong presence in the room. You try to scream or shout for help, yet this simple ability you have to speak suddenly disappears, and becomes a mammoth of a task. You try to use the muscles in your body to help you turn over, to help you speak, but you simply can’t do anything. I’d just like to tell you, do not fret, for you are not alone. Personally it is one of the scariest things I have ever experienced in my life, and it’s happened to me MORE THAN ONCE.

I give thanks to God that I have not experienced sleep paralysis again in the last few years, because it is not something enjoyable to encounter. When I faced my episodes of what they call ‘sleep paralysis’, I always felt a very dark presence in the room, automatically I’d always want to shout out the name of Jesus, but could only repeatedly say so in my mind. There has been times where I felt like I was being strangled or raped, even though I’ve never faced or been through such circumstances in my life. While I hadn’t encountered such violence in real life, I felt within me that what I faced in my mind, is what it would be like in actuality. At times I felt like I physically had to fight someone off me, like I was fighting for my life. From this I immediately knew I was under spiritual attack from the devil. As a Christian I firmly believe that there are angels and also demons, as this is exactly what the holy bible tells us. Matthew 25:41 ‘Then shall he say also to them on the left hand, Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels’. With that said, I shall go on to discuss why I believe this topic is so important to talk about.

The main reason in which I want to share my experience with you all, is so that anyone going through the same experiences which I previously faced, doesn’t feel condemned. It is so easy for us to start thinking ‘what have I done wrong’, or ‘what am I doing wrong’. Yes sometimes through certain actions we take, we can provide the enemy with access into our life, but this is not ALWAYS THE CASE. One can also start to think and believe that they are a ‘WEAK’ Christian. You may even think that your prayers are ineffective, and that you do not deserve Gods protection. You begin to feel like you are not worthy enough to come before Gods presence, so you give up on prayer altogether, and think wants the point. This is exactly what the devil wants, he wants to rob you of your confidence of coming before Gods throne of grace. This is the very path which I found myself along, I didn’t even think I had the right to talk within the church, because these attacks kept on happening to me. I felt that in order for me to share my faith and the gospel, my life had to be in perfect order, and free from spiritual attacks. Which is a dangerous and false belief, I mean Paul wrote most of the New Testament from a prison cell (Philippians 1:12-14). He faced a lot of persecution, yet God still used him. You facing a difficult trial does not mean that you cannot be used for God’s glory. I always like to remind myself that even though Satan intends to harm me, God intends it all for good (Genesis 50:20). I also choose to remember ‘when I am weak, then I am strong’ (2 Corinthians 12:10). These scriptures are of constant encouragement to me!

 

I really don’t want you to feel condemned, or suffer silently. I believe the Lord uses such situations to strengthen our character, it also helps us to develop patience endurance (Romans 5:3-4). What we must realise is that when we face trials, and go through challenging life situations there is ALWAYS hope. I just desire for all who face such situations to feel encouraged. The devil likes to instil fear within us, but we should be strong and courageous. The very thing you are afraid of (Satan and his demons), God has given you complete and total authority over (Luke 10:19). So do not let this circumstance make you fearful, do not be afraid of the devil, begin to exercise your authority over him. You must begin to use the name of the Jesus, for demons are subject to the name of Christ (Luke 10:17).

 

My penultimate note of encouragement to you people today is… There is GREATNESS in you. The devil knows this truth, better than your own self. He knows that you can accomplish great and mighty things through Christ Jesus who strengthens you, and that is why he will try everything in his power to stop you from believing the truth. He will throw every obstacle he can in your way, to get you to give up. One thing I’ve noticed is that whenever I experienced such spiritual attacks (what they call sleep paralysis), it would always be at a point in time where I was drawing closer to God. Or when God was using me to minister the gospel to others. I believe as Christians that we must be smart at identifying Satan’s tactics, and not let them get the better of us. I always like to look back to the story of Jesus birth, to gain strength concerning the matter of spiritual attack. Satan knew that Jesus Christ was God, and that the baby born in Bethlehem was the King of kings. So he used King Herod to carry out his work to kill all the young boys, with the hope of killing Jesus Christ the Messiah. So you can see that Satan knew that Jesus was GREAT, so he tried everything in his power to try to stop Jesus from fulfilling His potential. And as a result Jesus parents had to flee to Egypt. From this I’ve observed that, the trials we face in life may lead us to unexpected destinations, but this does not make us failures. We should also never allow trials to lead us to giving up, or prevent us from fulfilling our full potential. Christ faced many challenges in life, yet He still fulfilled His purpose, He still chose to lay down His life for you and me. His death on the cross and His resurrection, was Him accomplishing His calling. And through His great act of selflessness all mankind has the opportunity to receive the free gift of salvation.

 

Finally, I believe that God is using my very fear to help me encourage others. I remember when watching Nollywood as a child, I would not be able to sleep at night, because of all the witchcraft they showed in like every scene of the movie. If you grew up in a Nigerian household, you probably understand where I am coming from lol. I used to have sleepless nights after talking about evil spirits, and could not even read Christian books which discussed such matters. But now I am a transformed individual, the very demons I was afraid of, I now know I have the authority over them, authority given to me by Christ Jesus, Amen (Revelations 2:26-28). I am now unafraid to wage war against the kingdom of darkness through prayer and fasting, praise be to God.

 

So people stay blessed, and stay encouraged. Remember you are not the only one who is going through such battles (spiritual attacks), do not keep it to yourself. Always find a Christian brother or sister to share with and confide in, as their prayers and words of encouragement, will be of great help. The bibles says the prayer of a righteous person has great power. And most importantly cast your worries onto God, for you were not designed to carry them yourself. I want you to realise that sharing your struggles with others is so important, especially with God. My greatest advice for you today is NOT TO BOTTLE THINGS UP.

 

Have a blessed week influential people and may God’s grace be with you

Love from

The godly lady after God’s own heart.

prayer

 

 

 

 

 

Hello ladies and a big hello to the gents that may also be reading.

I believe that it’s about time, we as a nation awaken from our slumber. Christians, myself included cannot continue sleeping any longer, we must respond to Gods call, telling us to wake up from our spiritual stupor. Arise O body of Christ, no longer should we stand divided, for in heaven there will be no such thing as denominations, for we will all be called children of God.  When we choose to stand together in unity, then we will accomplish greater things.

In every bad, horrible and negative situation, God always has a way of drawing out the good, the lovely and the positive. He has the ability to turn a dreadful situation, into one that has the opportunity to become pleasant. Sadly I feel that the unity formed within the western world over this past weekend, is because of the result of a horrific tragedy. People who would normally not pray, have started to pray, because many have come to the realisation that even with all the knowledge, advanced technology, and weapons we have, no one knows tomorrow. No one can predict when death will strike (unless God in His sovereignty reveals such information). I would like to express that we should not wait for calamity to hit before we decide to pray, or before we decide to join together in unity. We must do so NOW, because of the love which we have for one another.

Witnessing the death of any person, whether the individual was good or evil, is something which most human beings do not enjoy to see. Even the bible says that God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but He desires for them to turn from their ways and live (Ezekiel 18:23 & Ezekiel 33:11).  The unfortunate thing is that, a lot of the individuals involved in these acts of terror only understand the language of violence. Sadly some people do not respond to words which warn them to stop such evil actions, but what does work is having them detained or removed from society. It is extremely upsetting that many people have lost their lives both willingly, and unwillingly, in order for peace to reign in this world. But this is one of the sad realities which come with fighting against evil. I’d just love to express to you that, every single one of us have a weapon more powerful than that which the wicked organisations have. And it is PRAYER. We as Christians must realise that we can move mountains from our bedrooms. Prayer goes a VERY LONG way, and sometimes I feel that we as believers do not know how much value prayer holds. Our prayers are not merely hitting the ceiling, but they are reaching Gods heart. Prayer puts us on the frontline of battle, because through Christ Jesus we can change the game before the game is even played. Basically our prayers can change situations, by preventing certain events from occurring.

Some of you may laugh at my previous statement, but I just want you to understand the bigger picture. The bible specifically says that we are not fighting against flesh and blood, but against evil rulers (Ephesians 6:12). So whether you believe that the recent acts of violence were committed by ISIS, or people in higher power, there’s one thing which I am 100% sure about. And that is that ultimately, the devil is the one behind all these evil occurrences. Evil people are his puppets and he is the puppet master. I do not want you to take my statement as one which excuses the actions of evil people. NO I do not condone their actions, as most human beings have the capacity, and the ability to choose right from wrong, and should take responsibility for their actions.

I know that as each day goes by the devil knows that his time is coming to an end, and so he wants to take down as many lives with him as possible. The bible says that, the devil goes around looking for people to devour, because he’s so full of anger [he’s compared to a roaring lion] (1 Peter 5:8). Christians I really want us to see the bigger picture here, all over the news we see that people’s physical bodies are being destroyed, but for their souls to be lost as well, is just heart-breaking. People’s lives are being cut short, and many are robbed of the opportunity to know Jesus personally. That in itself should be a cause for alarm. Desiring for the salvation of lost souls should be enough to drive us to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17). We should even go as far as praying for our enemies. Many Christians may know of what a great man Paul was, in terms of spreading the gospel to the masses. I mean he even wrote a lot of the books we find in the New Testament. But how many of you know that he once persecuted Christians, he watched them being martyred, he watched people being stoned to death, he even went out of his way to throw Christians in prison. Yet God turned his zeal to do evil, into a passion to do good. God can change the hearts of wicked men, for with God all things are possible (Matthew 19:26), but we MUST have faith. We must not give up on prayer.

I know that I have used the term ‘evil men’ several times throughout this post, but I’d just like you to understand that the term refers to both men and women, as I am not sexist. But on a closing note, I’d just like to say that I will continue to pray for all those who have lost loved ones, at the hands of evil men. My heart goes out to the millions of people around the world suffering heartbreak, caused by the actions of immoral individuals.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted (Matthew 5:4).

Love from the

Christian lady after Gods own heart.

imagesJBJYRGEJHey mighty women of valour

It’s a very special day today, a day in which people all over the globe remember the fallen dead. The people who have laid down their lives for the freedom of others.

I can sincerely say that from the bottom of my heart I desire for a time to come, where people don’t have to kill one another, in order to make peace. I desire for a time where there is no war, and no innocent civilians being caught in the midst of bombs, and crossfires. I would also love for nation not to go to war against nation. If I could rule the earth there would be no such thing as war, no such thing as one man taken another man’s life. But the unfortunate thing is, there are many evil people out there, in every race, continent, country and tribe. People who think it’s perfectly fine to take another human beings life, just because they feel they have the right to.

But I’d just like to say thank you to those who fought against individuals with such evil, and wicked ideologies. I’d also like to thank those who did not die in the line of duty, and are still here with us today. I know living with the memories of war, and the damages it causes, must be so difficult to deal with. Just seeing images of war on the news, is enough to leave me feeling emotional. But many of you don’t have the option to switch channels or delete images, as the mind is the most powerful storage system. Even if you try to erase one moment in time, your brain cells always have a way of backing up that particular memory file. I know that videos may be constantly replayed in your mind, and my simple thank you may not be enough to prevent these horrific memories from resurfacing. But I hope my thank you, and the thank you of many others, bring those memories to a complete halt, even if it is for a few seconds. And within that halted, still, short or long moment I hope you find joy.

I also choose to remember people who have been killed for standing up to injustice, and those killed for speaking out against corrupt leaders. I say thank you for fighting for the truth. Even though you knew it would cost you the highest price, you still chose to fight till the end. And thank you to the martyrs who chose to defend their faith, you chose not to deny the truth to please other men. You truly stood to the end. Your deaths are not in vain, those of you who fought for the justice, faith and welling being of others. There is now an uprising, humanity is now slowly gathering and standing together. Social media has somewhat helped in our uniting, it has exposed to us the numbers of people who have died tackling unfairness. We as humanity must aspire to join, and stand together for the sake of peace, for when divided we will fall. We cannot stay silent and allow people to keep dying in vain, and I do not mean to say we should fight using violence. NO I am against such acts, but rather we battle by using our voice. Words are powerful and can change destinies (Proverbs 18:21).

And Oh how many of us Christians myself included, forget to thank the greatest man of ALL TIME. His name is JESUS, Counsellor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of peace. The ultimate hero who died once and for ALL (1 Peter 3:18 NLT). He died for humans past, present AND future. Lord Jesus I chose to acknowledge what you done on the cross, and I say thank you. Thank you for without your death, I would not be able to experience TRUE FREEDOM. Salvation. Life after death with the Father. The human vocabulary is so limited, it cannot be used to express your awesomeness in its entirety, but my prayer for now is that this post brings you honour. Jesus I salute you and I also thank you.

Love From

A godly lady after Gods own heart.

We Cannot Keep Quiet About Suicide

Tags

, , ,

Hey ladies

How you doing?

Well I hope some of you answer my question like so… blessed, flourishing, ecstatic, overjoyed, thankful etc. Swiftly moving onwards I’d just like to bring to your attention, that the topic which I will be discussing in this post today, is a very sensitive one to say the least. Over the past few months the Holy Spirit has laid it upon my heart to pray for those who are battling with suicidal thoughts.

For a while now God has been highlighting to me that so many people are lonely. You do not only find isolated people in distant countries that are poverty stricken. I say this because it is a common misconception which a lot of people believe is true. I previously held the incorrect view that it’s impossible for someone to be lonely in Britain. If you don’t have family, you’ll have friends, and if not friends you could go out and find something sociable to do such as, cinema, bowling or go to a restaurant. And if you don’t have access to any of that, you’d have the cyber world as your backup (Although I personally do not believe this is the best option, I appreciate that in this day and age most things have become computerised as well as our methods for communication). The point I’m trying to make is that isolated people are everywhere, you could have someone who is feeling suicidal on your street, in your block, on the next road from you. That person feeling suicidal could even be your best friend or family member.

God did not only stop by encouraging me to pray concerning this issue, He wanted to bring to my attention that suicide is a REAL PROBLEM in Britain. I firmly believe this because He showed me this through an image. It so happened that with the multiple problems my car had, I decided that it was unsafe for me to drive it. Plus my MOT ran out, and it was not worth taking the car to be tested, knowing that there would be an extremely high chance of it failing its test. And if it was to be repaired, repairs would most likely cost more than the car. This left me in a position where I had to use public transport (the train during rush hour is not the one). Upon my first day of commuting to work I saw a poster which strongly tugged on my heart string. The words on the poster pierced my heart, I cannot remember how it was worded exactly but these words stuck with me ‘the leading cause of death in young adults aged 20-34 is suicide’. I don’t know about you, but it really hurt me to read those words, especially because I myself am within that age bracket.

Even though Britain is a nation which is advanced in technology, is one of the wealthiest and most powerful countries on earth, is home to some of the world’s best schools, and arguably has the best health care system in the world. Suicide still seems to have a powerful stronghold upon our nation.

I’m sure that there are some people out there who do not think suicide is a problem in this nation, and will use statistics to justify their reasoning. But this matter is one in which I feel very strongly about, and is something which God has laid upon my heart to pray for! And the truth of the matter is that statistics are not 100% reliable. In fact they can distort our views on what is truly happening. I must admit that I have procrastinated with writing this blog, and the Spirit convicted me, and I thank Him for doing so. The reminder which prompted me to get on with adding more to this post and publishing it, was coming across a post about the British actor Sam Sarpong committing suicide. Yet again my heart began to ache at the news of another person taking their life. Suicide is a REAL PROBLEM, which does not take into consideration race, social background or celebrity status! Suicide can affect anyone and everyone!

I feel lead to share a personal testimony with y’all, just to highlight that this topic is not all doom and gloom. It is based on a story a colleague at work shared with me. I will not expose any of the names of the individuals involved in the story, in order to maintain peoples confidentially. So my colleague came and told me that he came across a patient who was hospitalised due to a failed suicide attempt. I could not help but to start praising God! My heart was filled with joy in abundance. At that moment in time I felt God telling me that my prayers concerning the issue of suicide, have not gone unheard. So I’d just like to encourage those who have been praying for people battling with suicide, God hears your cry. Before you have even opened your mouth He has answered AMEN! (Isaiah 65:24).

It is so easy for us to describe how amazing Gods creation is, how magnificent and mighty the sea is, but there’s always one thing most people forget. Which is WE are Gods most valuable work of art. We are great and good to look at! Just think of how complex one part of our body is, for example the eye! We must remember we are intricately designed and WE ARE SPECIAL!! We are the only part of creation made in Gods image! People I really want you to understand your value, so I’m going to paint you guys a picture. As a parent (or a human being) you problem find certain animals cute, or a particular piece of nature striking to look at. But I’m sure that even as fascinating as these animals or pieces of nature are, they are incomparable to the beauty of your own child. I’m sure many parents would say that their child/baby is the most beautiful thing in the world to them. It’s a mini them, a human being with their very own DNA in them. And I want to express to you that, that’s EXACTLY how God feels about you! You are His very own, made in His image and likeness! God is so proud when He looks at you! His heart leaps with joy when He looks at you. When He sees you, He sees beauty, splendour, magnificence, and the list GOES ON. And like most parents even when your child messes up you don’t stop loving them. Well I tell you, God is far better than all the great, amazing parents out there. And it doesn’t matter what type of mistake we make, GOD WILL STILL LOVE US! He loves unconditionally.

The devils purpose is to steal our joy, destroy our chances of a bright future, and ultimately take life (John 10:10). Satan loves to cease individuals of the opportunity to get to know Jesus Christ. He is an expert at telling lies, and he has had a few millennia to practise the art of deception. The thing is the devil knows we are filled with greatness, even more so than our own self. There are MANY MANY people out there who do not realise their potential to achieve great things, but the devil does. So his goal is to prevent us from knowing the truth. Unfortunately the devil has succeeded in deceiving some people that the only way to make things better, or completely remove the chances of failure, is to take their life. God has given us the authority NOT to let Satan’s plans succeed (Luke 10:19). Many great achievers where once called failures or had to try several times before getting their breakthrough! Just remember that failing does NOT make you a failure.

I can say that I am extremely passionate about this subject, and have a great zeal within me to do something about it! I want every single human being to know their value! Yes I know I can help by giving to a charity like the ‘Samaritans’, but I also long to play a practical role in tackling this issue. I desire to help England be set free from the bondage of the enemy, by reaching out to people who are battling with suicidal thoughts. I’m not sure exactly how I will go about it, but I have some ideas which I’m laying before God, whilst praying to Him for total direction. I want God to completely govern my thought process concerning this matter! I would also appreciate if you could support me, by uplifting me in prayer. What I have observed is that people do not become suicidal overnight, it’s a process which happens over a period of time, which could be long or short. But I believe it all stems from believing a lie, a lie of Satan! I believe that the best way to tackle suicide, is by preventing people from believing lies. This can help stop the process of individuals developing a suicidal thought pattern. I am someone who feels that, it is far better to prevent something from happening, than to patch up the symptoms.

With that said, my question to you all is, what will you do? We as Christians are called to care for our neighbour and to love others (Mark 12:31). I know you may not share the same passion as me regarding suicide, but I believe it can affect anyone whether directly or indirectly. For example when you are commuting home via the train, and you hear someone has jumped in the tracks, I’m sure all kind of thoughts rush through your mind. Such as ‘How will the persons family cope?’, ‘Did they have any loved ones?’. Lastly I’d just like to say that whatever way you choose to help will go a long way, as the famous saying states ‘Every little helps’. If you do not know how you can help, I’d just love to mention that prayer goes a VERY LONG WAY!

My frustration with Satan’s prominence within the media

Tags

, , , , , ,

  A big hello to all the ladies reading this post, I hope y’all are well (and also to my male folks who just happen to be passing by).

First and foremost I’d just like to say a big thank you, to all who have shown support to this blog. Whether it be by liking a post or sharing posts with friends and family, your love is much appreciated! It’s also another great way in which we can help spread the word of God to the masses.

Now onto the MAJOR issue I’d like to discuss today, following on from the sentence ‘spreading the word of God to the masses’, how have you done so today? This week? This month? I do not ask this question to you today, with the intention to make you feel condemned, as that is NOT my motive at all! My motive today, is to highlight that there is someone hard at work with his several agents, trying by all means to spread a message. And guess what, his message is certainly being spread, seen, and heard by a multitude of people. His message is pure evil and his intentions are also evil. This individual and his followers intend to prevent people from receiving the message of truth! I’m sure you have guessed the person/people I am talking about by now, but if not don’t fret as imma tell you who they are anyway…SATAN and his demons! It makes me SOOOO angry to see the devil go around destroying people lives, and robbing them of the opportunity of knowing God and Gods word. As a soldier of Christ I desire what God desires, which is for none to perish but for all to have eternal life (2 Peter 3:9)!

I personally feel that the devil is really infiltrating the media, from billboards to adverts and cartoons, it seems almost impossible to avoid material of sexual content. He really has a stronghold over the media industry, and I believe it is something we should seriously pray about! My desire is for God’s word to infiltrate the minds of people across the world, and for Christians to have prominent positions within the media industry.

I believe the devil is using social media to attack churches. There is a lot of verbal persecution geared towards the church in this day and age. I also find the media to be very one sided, mainly highlight churches faults and sins! I hardly see the media videoing the good deeds/charity work carried out by church folk. Media highlights preachers faults. But one thing we must remember is that God forgives AND forgets sin (Hebrews 8:12). And we know this is true because God says love does not keep a record of wrong (1 Corinthians 13:5). And we know that GOD IS LOVE (1 John 4:8). As Christians sometimes we end up making things worse for the body of Christ, by our speech and actions. By us continuously replaying another person’s sin, we are actually not doing ourselves any favours. Usually constantly speaking of someone else’s faults, leads us to gossiping. We can also prevent others from coming into Gods house, because we leave them feeling fearful. They feel like if they slip up, that’s it, the whole church will know about their mistakes, and they’ll be verbally attacked (having multiple bullets of condemnation fired their way). Anyway who are we to hold unforgiveness when Christ has already forgiven (assuming they’ve confessed their sin)! Also we are to look to Christ, not to our pastor or another Christian brother or sisters. We are not to put man (this also includes women) on a pedestal as only Christ is perfect! Taking that point into consideration it should not surprise us when others make mistakes, because all have sinned and come short of Gods glory (Romans 3:23). That’s the whole point of why Jesus came, because no one is without sin (1 John 1:8 and Ecclesiastes 7:20). Also the bible says a righteous man falls 7 times but gets back up (Proverbs 24:16). I do not say this with the intention of saying it is ok to sin, or live in habitual sin, I’m just trying to give those reading a clear and balanced illustration of the point I am trying to make. We must also understand that praying for a brother/sister/leader in Christ will do more good, than chit chat. To be quite frank chit chat accomplishes NOTHING, and pulls you away from God, as you indulge yourself in the sin of gossiping (Proverbs 10:19, Proverbs 18:7-8 and Leviticus 19:16). Also remember we are called to rebuke in love, so if you are in a position where someone is accountable to you, correct them in gentleness so they will not be discouraged (Galatians 1:6).

The second issue I have identified with regards to the negative attributes of social media, is that the devil uses it as a tool to dictate to people how they should live. I feel that girls in particular are a specific target for the enemy, in this area. We are very much in the firing line of the enemy concerning sexuality and how we should look/dress. Unfortunately society has brainwashed people into thinking that girls have to walk around practically naked, with a lot of makeup on, in order to be perceived as beautiful. This is not to say that men do not go through their own social media battles. What I have recently observed is that guys are pressurised into thinking, they are not ‘manly’ enough if they don’t have a banging body. They got to have those abs and guns otherwise they are not winning. They must have several women falling at their feet. Males I want you to understand that the size of your muscles, does not determine whether you are a man or not. As Andy says ‘You could be a boy until the die you lay in your grave’. Both sexes are also encouraged to jump in bed with everyone and anyone, because life is all about satisfying your own needs and desires. It doesn’t really matter about hurting someone else. The thing is the bible warns us against living to satisfy our sinful nature (Galatians 6:8).  Another trending theme I’ve taken notice of is relationships. The media expresses that, if you’re not in a relationship, or have never been in one, you are simply not a human being. Sounds stupid or harsh when you hear it put in such a way, but that’s just me not beating around the bush, and uncovering the nasty reality of how vile social media can be sometimes.

The beauty feature that has everyone hyped up in our present day, is having a big bum. Society’s perception of beauty has left many women in debt/bankruptcy, due to them having plastic surgery which they can barely afford. Damage to women is not only financial, but also psychological and emotional. Many women and young girls sadly feel that they are not beautiful, or good enough, when lined up against society’s standards and expectations. I would just like to end this paragraph by saying I don’t believe there’s anything wrong with wearing makeup. I just feel issues arise when people feel uncomfortable within themselves, and are solely dependent on makeup/artificial beauty. To the extent where they feel they cannot be seen without makeup, and wouldn’t dream of leaving their house without it on. We must learn to LOVE ourselves, we must learn to love and except that we are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14). I would also like to clarify that there is nothing wrong with having a big or flat bottom, or a large or small chest, praise God for making you the way He desired you to be created and formed. Rejoice in your beauty. There will never be another you!

My third and final observation on the tactics the enemy uses, through social media is bulling. Several people have been bullied via the media. Many people have had an embarrassing moment recorded or pictured, which has gone viral, and has received many horrible and sarcastic comments. This leaves people feeling extremely hurt and can leave people being fearful of going out in public. I must admit that I am also guilty of laughing at someone’s embarrassing moment, which is not a kind or respectful thing for me to do to a fellow human being. It is so great to hear about bullying awareness schemes, but I still feel that some people are unaware of what bullying is. Verbal bullying is a serious problem, as the effects of verbal bullying are not always physical. Many people do not see a crushed spirit or broken heart, especially those hidden behind a smile. Unfortunately social media has paved the way for keyboard warriors to attack and bully who they want, when they want. Name calling or using any form of abusive language over a social media medium i.e. twitter or Facebook IS BULLYING, full stop. Sadly bullying drives some people to the point of despair, where they feel the only way out is to commit suicide. And we know that this is exactly what the devil wants, as he goes about like a roaring lion looking for people to kill, steal from and destroy (1 Peter 5:8 and Romans 10:10). I really want us to understand that bullying is a SERIOUS matter, and that we all can do something to bring a stop to its prevalence within the media. It does not matter if the part we have to play in ending bullying is small or big, what is important is that we actually do something.
I don’t believe that media (social media) is evil, but I believe that Satan is using it for evil (Acts 13:10)! But Gods word says that He turns around evil for good (Genesis 50:20)! You hear that Satan it’s already game over for you! Not all of us fall into Satan’s traps of deception so easily, but there are many people out there who do. So it’s our duty as Christ soldiers to warn others about the enemies’ plans, and to minister to the unsaved. We can all help infiltrate the media with the gospel message, by playing our own part! I decided to devise a short list of ways in which I thought can help us all spread the gospel message via the media. The ways in which we can help spread the gospel are as follows…

1) Post a word of encouragement on Twitter/Facebook.
2) Post images inspired by Gods word and share with family and friends on Instagram.
3) Send encouraging Whatsapp messages.
4) Record/picture the good work which God is doing in your life/church (Do so as the Spirit leads). Never feel forced to share all personal details of your life, as we all like to keep certain things private. I’m aware we all like to keep some matters CONFIDENTIAL (and frankly I don’t blame you, due to the sad fact that some people abuse they way they use the internet)!
5) Pray over the media.
6) Fast regarding media issues.

7) Speak out against bullying, and do not help spread hurtful videos or pictures of people.

8) Christian artists need financial support in order to help promote their work and reach many more people. (This is something I felt God personally ministering to me about). I feel lead to financial support Christian artist by either purchasing their album, OR by donating to their ministry. Just imagine if every Christian in the world donated a penny towards Christian media ministries, it would go such a long way. I’m sure you’ve heard the statement ‘every little helps’, and truly it does. There are 7.3 billion people in the world, just imagine collecting 1p from every person, you’d end up with A LOT I’ll leave you to do the math! But no one should feel forced to give, or give what they do not have. We should give cheerfully as the bible says (2 Corinthians 9:7).

I am sure many of you will have several more ideas to add to the list, on how we can help spread the gospel, so please feel free to share them with me. But I earnestly hope you’ve enjoyed reading this post, and will join me in fighting against the kingdom of darkness operations within the media. Starting from NOW, let’s not allow the devil to keep causing havoc. Let’s start spreading Gods word NOW!!! Let us start the trend PROMOTING GOD’S WORD (PGW)

Love y’all

Stay blessed beautiful women of valour.

Certain cartoons are poisoning young minds

blog_photo-of-the-week-happy-mothers-dayHi women and girls of valour

I thought that I would do a short write up, on something which has been playing on my mind. I believe that this post will be of particular benefit to females who come into contact with children on a regular basis. For example individuals such as mothers, Sunday school teachers, child minders, older siblings etc.  I say this because I believe that women, especially mothers, have a big influence over their child’s/children’s lives. I have no intention of creating this post to be a scare tactic, but rather to warn individuals to be mindful of what the young ones within their care are watching.

You may be wondering why I feel that females have such a big influence over children’s lives, so I’d like us to look to the word of God concerning this matter (this does not mean that a man does not have a vital role to play in a child’s life. I firmly believe that both parents have equally crucial roles to play, when raising a child). So we all know Proverbs 31 as a scripture relating to how a godly wife should carry herself and what her character should look like, but have you ever took the time to read and meditate on the former part of chapter 31? Here we see King Lemuel reciting words of wisdom, which were told to him by his mother. Proverbs 31:1 says ‘The sayings of King Lemuel, an inspired utterance his mother taught him’. So we can see his mothers wise words inspired him, and also stuck with him throughout his life. They were principles which he could use to live a life full of purpose and obedience towards God. We also see that his mother’s words of wisdom had a part to play in the way he treated others. We must remember that the way we bring up our children does not only affect us, our children can either be a source of blessing or pain to those around them, e.g. people in their local community. An example of this is Proverbs 31:4-5“It is not for kings, O Lemuel– not for kings to drink wine, not for rulers to crave beer, lest they drink and forget what the law decrees, and deprive all the oppressed of their rights”. From this scripture I gather that because of Lemuel’s mother’s words of advice, Lemuel would have been a king who ruled his people fairly, and would not deny the innocent justice. Overall I’d say that Proverbs 31 shows us that being a virtuous woman also includes being a wise mother, who has the ability to influence her child in a godly manner.

We also have the history of the kings of Israel and Judah, which show us that a mother/grandmother can either have a positive or negative influence on her child’s life. 2 Chronicles 15:16 depicts the events of King Asa deposing his own grandmother Maacah, because she made a repulsive image (idol), in order for people to worship. Maacah setting up an Asherah pole could have lead the children of Israel to once again turn from God by committing idol worship, which would break Gods heart. But we see that King Asa did not let his grandmother’s sin, influence the way in which he ruled his people, or his obedience towards Gods word.

Now I believe some of us know of a woman called Bathsheba, but I shall just give you a brief synopsis about who she is. She was the woman whom King David committed adultery with, and later became the mother of a man we know as King Solomon. 1 Kings 2:19 states ‘When Bathsheba went to King Solomon to speak to him for Adonijah, the King stood up to meet her, bowed down to her and sat down on his throne. He had a throne brought for the king’s mother, and she sat down at his right hand’. Now throughout the bible there is a great significance placed on sitting on the right hand of someone important. I’m sure many of us have come across several verses which speak of sitting at Gods right hand. Sitting at the right hand of someone important, is to sit in a position of honour, authority, and rulership. I personally believe that for King Solomon to put his mother in such a position, he would have had to have great trust in her, and her wisdom. Bathsheba would have had the ability to influence her son Solomon greatly. She would have probably been one of the people who constantly give King Solomon counsel. And we all know King Solomon was the wisest King to ever live 1 Kings 4:29-32, and I believe that his mother’s character would have had some part to play, in his development of good character. This is apart from God greatly blessing King Solomon, as God is the one who gives wisdom. Now there are many more examples of a mothers/grandmothers influence over her offspring’s life in the bible, for example Queen Athaliah, but I don’t want to waffle on. I would like to try and keep this post as short as possible *hands over face*, so I don’t overload your brains with too much information. So I may look into creating a follow up post on a mothers influence, God willing.

So now I shall go onto the whole reason I wrote this post… CARTOONS!!! So one day I flicked through some kiddies TV channels as I usually do, and ended up utterly shocked, and surprised at several demons coming out of a possessed cartoon character. But NO it didn’t stop there, this scene was shortly followed by another scene portraying another character being taken over by a demon, and the demon manifesting itself within the character by changing the characters voice. ALARM BELLS started ringing in my head, this is not at all healthy for a child (or adult) to watch, as such things do not bring glory to God. Reason being because such programmes depict witchcraft and black magic, as something fun and exciting.  They paint it out to be like an adventure which kids should desire to discover and experience. They are practically glorifying witchcraft. The really sad and unfortunate thing is that there are many cartoon/children’s TV series which glorify witchcraft, and the bible firmly warns us against dabbling/involving ourselves in witchcraft. Leviticus 19:31 “Do not turn to mediums or necromancers; do not seek them out, and so make yourselves unclean by them, I am the Lord your God”.

I will now go through a few of the many reasons of why I believe as mothers, sisters, aunties and teachers, we should keep an eye out on what our children are watching.

Things to watch out for when watching cartoons.

  • Sexual innuendos.
  • The mocking of Christ Jesus.
  • Distortion of Gods handiwork for example the misrepresentation of human beings i.e. ape like humans.
  • Witchcraft/Black magic etc etc etc.

Why we should watch out for such things?

  • Scary images such as cartoons which illustrate a lot of gore, and images of monsters, and aliens can instil fear within children.
  • The enemy can use the TV to open a door within our children’s lives, e.g. if a child is being constantly exposed to things of a sexual nature, the door of lust can be open. What we allow our eyes to be entertained with can have a big impact on our life. Matthew 6:22-23 “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness”.
  • If a child is persistently bombarded with subtle or explicit images of witchcraft, they can easily come to the conclusion that witchcraft/black magic is ok or normal.
  • And one of my biggest concerns is that children IMMITATE, this is how they learn! So if all they see on TV are actions which do not bring God glory, there is a strong tendency that they will act in ways which do not bring God glory.

Sorry for the rant but I believe it was necessary to share, even if it benefits one family, I know and believe it is worth sharing. I know that in this day and age it has become increasingly hard to monitor what young children are exposed to, as there is evil everywhere, but we have a powerful weapon. PRAYER. Also never feel ashamed to ask the Holy Spirit for guidance on how to raise your children in a godly way.

Have a blessed day beautiful ladies

Idols within Gods house.

We have idols which we do not see

We have idols which we do not see

Good evening beautiful ladies

First and foremost I hope y’all are blessed and are continually seeking the face of God through bible reading and prayer???

The topic which I will be delving into today is idol worship, hence the title. There is so much to discuss regarding this topic, but I will only be going through a minute segment of this vast subject. So you could say we are only visualising the tip of the iceberg in this post, with regards to idolisation.

There have been many a time when I have read the bible and thought to myself “Oh how could the children of Israel be sooo disobedient? How could they commit such a sin against God? What blasphemy”!!! But usually what always happened next was, God would speak to my heart revealing to me that I pretty much did the same thing, just in a dissimilar way. Just because I don’t physically carry along an idol with me to church, but rather hold onto idols within my mind, doesn’t justify my actions, or make it ‘sort of ok’. Sin is sin, period. And sometimes we find that, because we go about carrying out a particular sin differently from our brother or sister, we develop a ‘holier than thou’ attitude. I will now go onto try to explain myself further.

The scripture passage from which my topic of discussion is taken from is 2 kings 21:1-9. I believe that verses 4, 5 and 7 emphasis the point I’m trying to make. Let’s just have a look at verse 7 for a moment. ‘He took the carved Asherah pole he had made and put it in the temple, of which the LORD had said to David and to his son Solomon, “In this temple and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, I will put my Name forever’. Please just use this point in time to take this verse in, YES re-read it, swallow the words, disgust em, and meditate on em… So the dude (King Manasseh) built his own idol, and brought it into Gods HOLY TEMPLE!!! A place where Yahweh said His name would be honoured! How could Manasseh do such a thing? How could he commit such an obscene act?? This would be like someone bringing a buddha statue into the church service, placing it on the ground and without further delay, bowing down to it!!! I’m not too sure why this illustration comes to mind. But ah well I’m sure you’ve caught my drift by now!

But would it surprise you that some of us do the exact same thing? We carry out the same obscene acts which Manasseh did. And it is actually pretty easy for us to do so, and turn such a sin into a habitual habit. Now to clear things up, let us define what an idol is, and what it is to idolise something. We can also go through some scripture to give us more clarity. The Oxford dictionary states an idol is 1) An image or representation of a god used as an object of worship. 2) A person or thing that is greatly admired, loved or revered. So from these definitions we can see that an idol is not only a physical object, but an idol can be a person, or our own personal representation of a god. The oxford dictionary also describes acts of idolatry as 1) The worship of idols, and 2) extreme admiration, love, or reverence for something or someone. So we can see that anything which we love or worship more than God is in fact an idol. This means that literally ANYTHING can be an idol!

The bible specifically says in Exodus 20:3 ‘You shall have no other gods before Me’. I know that many people may think of idols, only as items made from wood and stone as it describes in certain scripture passages like, Deuteronomy 4:28 and Leviticus 26:1. But we have our ‘modern day idols’ as I like to call it. Things like TV, social media, money, work, OURSELVES etc etc etc. 1 John 5:21 (NLT) warns us that we should keep away from anything that may take Gods place in our hearts. God is a jealous God (Exodus 34:14) and He desires to spend quality time with us. He also desires for us to want our relationship with Him to deepen and develop. The problem is, when we have idols we tend to spend most of our time focusing on that thing or person. For example with regards to a human idol, instead of trying to live a life seeking to please God, you try with all your strength to please another human being. We end up devoting so much of our time and energy towards the item which we value so much, it usually becomes the centre of our lives. In reality we cannot have two people or items at the centre of our attention, naturally our life will revolve around one more than the other.  As the bible says in Matthew 6:24 ‘You cannot serve two masters’.

So you may be asking, what has all we’ve just discussed, got to do with bringing idols into Gods temple? Well need I remind you of the times your mind (mine included) wonders off during church service? ‘These people honour me with their lips, but their hearts are far away’ Matthew 15:8. Whilst the pastor is giving the sermon we find ourselves thinking about that guy at work who we’re so obsessed with. We begin to think about spending quality time with him, thinking of how he could make us happy. Or on the other hand we end up thinking about our favourite TV programme, and what is going to happen in the next episode. We can end up thinking about how great an actor/actress is, and what it would be like meeting them in person. Your mind can also wonder to work (this happens to me often), we begin to worry and stress over workload and dreadful shift patterns, having to work with a difficult colleague, and how we need to make more money. We basically magnify the situation (‘work’ in this case), making it appear bigger than God, when in fact there is no one greater, bigger or mightier than our God. Let us just bear in mind, that all this is taking place within the house of God (church), whilst the man or woman of God is speaking words directly from the heavenly Father. (Well I’d hope they are words from God, unless you attend a place where there are false teachers). So we can see that idols within our minds are just as vile as idols visible for the human eye to see. So just like king Manasseh we too can commit our obscene acts of idolatry, but glory be to God, because once we confess our sins, He is just and faithful to forgive 1 John 1:9.

Finally to end this topic of discussion I’d like to leave you with a side note. Our bodies belong to the Lord, our bodies are the Lord’s temple, the place where His glory dwells (1 Corinthians 3:16 and 1 Corinthians 6:19). So idol worship within Gods place of worship, just doesn’t stop within the four walls of a church building. Idol worship takes place within our minds, and it can easily become a nasty daily habit, which one most deal with head on. As the word of God says ‘we must crucify the flesh daily’. Galatians 5:24 says we should nail our fleshly passions and desires to the cross, which in this case we are speaking of, is the human desire to put other things before God. Denying our fleshly desires is not something we should do once in a while, it is a DAILY requirement. We must deny ourselves daily and take up our cross and follow Christ (Luke 9:23).

Overcoming these shrines set up in our minds is not something that we can resolve ourselves overnight. We need the Holy Spirit to help us overcome our battle of idol worship, as well as admitting and confessing to God that it is a sin we struggle with. As this is a long post, I shall look into doing a follow up post, on how to overcome idolatry, sometime in the future God willing.

Anyway my beautiful, powerful and wonderfully made women, ladies and girls, I can only hope and pray this post was informative for you, but also a blessing at the same time. Enjoy your evening.

God bless

The Lover and Admirer I’ve always struggled to pay attention to.

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

Without realising I shut You out of the warmness of my heart
Unaware of the fact that I now left you in a position where you stood knocking.
Knocking outside in the cold, in order to gain access into your own property
For my heart is Yours, it is Your very own possession.

I gradually became so distant from You my dear admirer
I all too quickly forgot that You far exceed my previous and current admirers.
They could never measure up to You.
Their love letters were NOTHING in comparison to the love BOOK You blessed me with.
Yes whilst they were busy struggling to draft love sentences,
some of which were not sincere

You already had a love story prepared for me.
And that book is the foundation of my life
It is a book of purity and authenticity, there is none like it.

But I chose to prostitute myself without an ounce of shame
I committed this un-dignifying act right in Your presence.
I cheated on You. I shared out parts of me that I promised were for You
MY TIME, MY ENERGY, MY EFFORT.

I became so quarrelsome, I was demanding, I made claims that it was Your right to give me all that my flesh desired.

 I said “I must have him, because I want him”.
Indirectly but yet very clearly stating “You my admirer are simply not enough for me”.

But Your quiet gentle voice never ceased to echo deep within my heart.
The words “But I am enough for you”, always made my heart flutter.

Then I’d start guilt tripping again, because I’d realise how much I’d hurt You
But then I’d be back to my fleshly antics again.
I would hang onto fantasies and fairytales to quench my so called loneliness.
The hope of developing relationships with those I’d admired, very quickly turned into false hope.

This left me bruised and battered. It crushed my spirit. I was left feeling like a useless worn out punching bag.

All my efforts of trying to gain their attention seemed to be to no avail.
Making the effort to smile at them, and to purposely pass their way, seemed to be of no significance to them.

They never paid me much attention.
But little did I realise that the feelings of disappointments I had, were the exact feelings You had.

This is because I did to You, the exact thing I hated people doing to me… completely ignoring my existence.

I ignored you

I ignored your attention

I did to you, what I despised others doing to me.

But the thing which upset You most, was seeing me harm myself by not guarding my heart.
Seeing me hurt
Hurt You.

You wanted my attention But I was always too busy trying to gain someone else’s attention
I desired a man that could pick me up, and carry me in his strong arms, forgetting that You always lift me up when I fall down.
I wanted to be guaranteed the promise that my dream man would always remain faithful to me.

But You already had a better deal in store for me, the promise that You’d never leave me or forsake me.

Your promise of always remaining faithful, even when I’m unfaithful, never ceases to fail.

I wanted someone who was willing to die for me, to take my place so I could live, all because they loved me so much.

But You’ve already done that.

So my Lover and Admirer I want You to know that I am Yours, my heart belongs to You.

From the moment I invited You into my heart, You gained total and complete ownership over my body.

Sometimes I occasional throw myself a pity party over being single, but the fairytale/Disney dreams will always fade away, but my thoughts of You will always be constant.

They are thoughts that will never grow faint, but will be existent within my psyche as long as I live.

So Jesus my Lover and Admirer I want You to know that I LOVE YOU.

My whole being cannot express how much I love You, but I shall always remember that the love I have for You, is nothing in comparison to how much You love me.

Hey godly ladies
It’s been a while (sorry), but I’m back and I’ve come to hit you up with a short but sweet post. ENJOY!!!

Gods plans are ALWAYS best!!!

Gods plans are ALWAYS best!!!

Why I like him How God loves you (us)
1)    Because he looks strong. 1) God is our strong tower (Proverbs 18:10).

God is a mighty warrior (Zephaniah 3:17).

God is strong and mighty (Psalm 24:8).

God is mighty in power (Psalm 147:5).

2) Because He looks like a protector (appears like he could protect me). 2)  The Lord is our protector and fortress(Psalm 18:2).

The Lord protects us from the evil one (2 Thessalonians 3:3).

God is our Rock, Refuge and Shield (2 Samuel 22:3).

God is our strength and help in time of trouble (Psalm 46:1).

Though we may walk through trouble God will deliver us (Psalm 138:7).

God will NEVER leave us, He’s ALWAYS there, now that’s the greatest form of protection you could ever have or get (Hebrews 13:5).

3) He looks manly (beard, great body, he’s taller than me). 3) Jesus has the manliest body anyone could ever have. He’s nail pierced hands cry out forgiveness of sins and salvation!!!

But He was pierced for our transgressions, He      was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds we are healed (Isaiah 53:5).

4)    Because people I know, know him (mutual friends), so they can tell me ALL I need to know about him. 4) God is the only one who truly knows a man’s heart. He sees what we cannot see, and knows what we do not know.

The Lord knows ALL hearts (Acts 1:24).

God does not look at outward appearance, but rather He looks at the heart (1 Samuel 16:7).

5)    He’s smart 5) God is the creator of the heavens and the earth. He created the human mind, and gives man wisdom to create medicines, to paint to draw etc. Therefore God is the smartest person I know.

How Great is Gods wisdom and knowledge (Romans 11:33).

Christ is actually wisdom itself. Now that is just amazing and unbeatable (1 Corinthians 1:30).

God is actually the source of all wisdom, He is the One who gives wisdom to man (James 1:5).

6)    He has a great Job (therefore he’d be a great provider). 6) God supplies ALL our needs (Philippians 4:19).

God sustains our souls, He is the one who keeps us going, by supplying us with all we need (Psalm 54:4).                                                                                  If God can provide for the birds in the air, how much more for us His children [humans made in His image] (Luke 12:24).                                                      We should not be anxious about our needs, because God already knows them all, and will make a way for providing them for you!!! (Matthew 6:31-32).

      .

Sometimes I feel that us being human find it all too easy to come to God with a list of why we want to be a relationship with a particular individual, or why we think God should bring a certain fella our way. Even though our points may be valid we must stop and think ONE are these characteristics, the same characteristic which God has instilled within the life of the mate He has already prepared for me (basically is my will in line with the will of God for my life?).

And TWO which I find to be most important is we should never believe that these characteristics can take the place of our sovereign Lords nature within our lives. They should never been seen as a substitute for God’s love, or used as a remedy to heal empty voids within our lives. We must realise that NO ONE or NO THING can take the place which God has in our lives. That place is designed for God and only for God, so until you realise this, you won’t feel complete wholeness. It is also extremely unfair to put all that pressure on a guy, as they can never be like God or live up to our unrealistic standards (well some of our standards). And I’ll even go as far as saying it is somewhat selfish (even though we may be a selfless individual, we can easily fail in this particular area).

But to sum things up, the main point I am trying to bring across is that we already have the greatest love of all, and we are already in the greatest relationship we can ever be in. And that’s being in a relationship with Jesus Christ, it is INCOMPARABLE to any other.

God bless ladies

I really do hope this post was a blessing for y’all
