Trust me once you read the above this post will make more sense 👌🏾
So since many of you liked the song list I did for during a storm I decided to do one for this post as well.
So, buckle your seatbelts and get into the groove and connect with God through these songs😌🙏🏾. I hope you are able to also feel how sweet God’s love is through these songs. Also added the links to make it easier for y’all to access this time 😄🙌🏾
A very common and well-known bible verse…yes☝🏾. I know it’s so short and simple that we sometimes forget to really meditate on these simple words.
“For God so LOVED the world” the whole world not just one individual but all of us. And through that LOVE His goodness is displayed. By giving us his only “begotten son” (Jesus Christ) who through God’s divine plan died on the cross, so that “WHOEVER”. No one person above the other, but whoever “BELIEVETH” in Him should not “PERISH” but have “EVERLASTING LIFE”. God loved me and you so much to die for us and give us everlasting life.🥰🙏🏾
I don’t know about you, but that is the sweetest type of goodness I have ever seen through His love ❤️ . It reminds me of the verse
Psalms 34:8, NKJV “Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!”
I can say through John 3:16, God’s love and Salvation, I can surely taste that the Lord is good.
Furthermore, it doesn’t stop here for us. As Jesus was sent by God, so was the Holy Spirit sent by Jesus FOR US! But that is a story for another time 😏
If this is the first time you are hearing this about God’s love, Salvation and you want to know more visit (The way of Salvation) or contact me through the contact page. I am more than happy to chat with you all
Should I make more posts about the Love of God and Salvation?
Stay Blessed the most stylish way possible, being the you that God made you to be 😊
Storms are challenging to go through, especially alone. Difficult times come to everybody now and then. ⛈
If you haven’t already I suggest reading my post (During A Storm) 👈🏾it’s the many lessons I have learnt during my storms that have strengthened my relationship and faith in God.
For He is a Calmer of Storms (Psalms 107:29, NKJV)
After that have a listen to these amazing songs by the Gospel singer/songwriter Kirk Franklin.

Just for me
The Storm is over Now

My Life, My Love, My All
I hope these songs can encourage someone out of their storms as they have done for me countless times. In these times and listening to these songs, be reminded that your deliverance from these situations comes from God. Allow Him to take control and lead you.🙏🏾✨❤️
Isaiah 41:13, NKJV
“For I, the LORD your God, will hold your right hand, Saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.”
Stay blessed the most stylish way possible, being the you that God made you to be 😊
Recently, I was asked how I came about calling my blog Stylishly Inspired. If you had asked me 4 years ago when I first started this blog. I wouldn’t have had a good answer for you, resulting in this post ending about right here😬.
Back then (in my early youth days 😜), all I can remember was wanting to focus on being unique and delivering the word of God differently. I also loved and still do fashion designing. Thus, played a role in picking the words “stylishly” and “inspired”. It was a bringing together of the 2 things I loved. 1. God and 2. Fashion designing.
Now I can end here and say that Anashe and the Stylishy Inspired Blog lived happily ever after🥳🎉.
Unfortunately, at that young age, I didn’t fully understand what God was doing through me. All I knew was the burning desire I had to share the word of God🙏🏾. About 2 years later, I believe, was when I had a clear sense that my posts were mostly going to impact women. You know I’m a female, speaking to females, who can mostly relate with me, so perfecto fit right!👌🏾💯
It wasn’t until last year and mostly this year that I started having a strong urge to focus on the word that God wants me to spread. I’m naturally a person who blends in the background and don’t necessarily like being the centre of attention that much. I can’t say I panic if the spotlight is put on me but rather avoid it. If you get what I mean
Why I’m saying this? Because this lead to me putting off all the time what God had put in me to speak out. Resulting in an on and off-again relationship with my blog.
When we were on, it would mostly be because it became a NEED for me to post. I don’t know if this makes any sense. All you other Christian bloggers out there, have you ever felt almost pushed to write something? and it bothers you the more you put it off? Because same. When we were off, no doubt the blog would be at the back of my head, I would just kinda cover the urge with a cloak and say “later” because other things in my life were deemed more important🤦🏾♀️.
That’s why this year, especially now, I took some time with God. The urge became too urgent (HA! imagine that🙆🏾♀️). However, in the beginning, I felt unworthy or more felt unprepared to deliver what God wanted me to say. Fear sunk in and I began to question whether what I had to say was really from God or just my own thoughts and feelings🥺. Not wanting to displease God backfired on me and made me more afraid to speak when I had a word or share what I had that week. Moreover, I used the chaos in my life as an excuse not to concentrate on what God was calling me to do🤦🏾♀️.
It’s only currently that I felt that God has calmed my storms😌 (Psalms 107:29, NKJV). Removed completely that fear of delivering His word because it is He who brings the word, not I.🙌🏾✨
I only write it. And it took me back to when I always read my posts and can see that it’s not me. Hahaha, I mean, yes it is me but the Spirit working through me and I always wonder how I even put together half of the things I talk about
Isaiah 50:4, NKJV “The Lord GOD has given Me The tongue of the learned, That I should know how to speak A word in season to him who is weary. He awakens Me morning by morning, He awakens My ear To hear as the learned.”
But I give glory to God because now I know everything I have gone through with life; the blog was for his purpose and to deliver His word to as many people as I can through my own experiences and not only that but to help other women do the same. Not to be afraid of spreading the word but through faith and your relationship with God, allow the Holy Spirit to work in you and touch others❤️✨.
Stylishly Inspired, simply put, is about every woman in their uniqueness coming together in Christ and inspiring each other. And thus, a continuing story behind Stylishly Inspired. God has only just begun His work with this blog and I’m excited for what is to come💃🏾.
That’s why I always and forever end with Stay blessed the most stylish way possible, being the you that God made you to be 😊
I know it’s been a long minute since I have blogged😅. To be brutally honest, I have been neglecting God’s work for a long while now. Shocking, I know! Nonetheless, I know that no excuse I give is permissible.🙅🏾♀️
I can just be truthful and say that I was in a big storm and hope what I learnt during this storm can resonate with you.
I can go on and on about the struggles, the distractions, the pain, COVID-19. However, God has a different purpose for this post.
It was only recently that I understood that the idea of my storm overpowering me was self conflicted.🤯
Philippians 4:6, NKJV
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God”
How quickly I had forgotten the power in those few words. I had allowed my life to become complete chaos because I chose for it to be chaotic. 👀
Please, read that again because I know someone can resonate with those words. Yes, a lot goes on in our lives and there are plenty of storms, but it’s how we handle those storms that affect us the most. In those times, we forget that we have such a capable God, a calmer of storms. “He calms the storm, So that its waves are still.” (Psalms 107:29, NKJV). I’m giving myself a little smile right now because I know God is not only speaking to me but also to you.
When storms come we can decide to go through alone or with God. Another factor we forget is that in that storm the Devil is greatly excited because that is where we are vulnerable and He will use this opportunity to feed us lies, fear and panic.
John 10:10, NKJV
“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
Let me paint the picture.
Storm comes -> tries to act calm and handle it alone 😮💨-> storm increases -> Okay panic settles in 😰-> nothing is working, here comes fear and anxiety 😫+ devil’s happiness 😈-> Still tries to do everything alone😬😥😰😓, add it all up = chaos😱🤡
It’s scenarios like these that cause us to see our storms much bigger than they are. Causes us to feel so out of place and evidently more further from God. This is not a favourable root to take
Sadly, it happens time and time again. I still fathom why we forget God in these times🥺
As written in the scripture on how Jesus reacted to the disciples when the storm came (Luke 8:22-25, you can go read the whole story if you don’t know it) after calming the storm He said “Where is your faith?”(verse 25). Imagine how He reacts to us reacting to our storms.
I was reminded of the verse
Psalms 55:22, NKJV
“Cast your burden on the LORD, And He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.”
God knew these storms will come and we will feel the way we do. That’s the part that gets me, He knew, He Knew there will be storms and He gave us the stools to overcome. Through His word, clinging more onto Him and trusting Him more❤️.
A champion example of total storms and chaos is David, I mean just read the Pslams. Nevertheless, David always looked to the Lord and indeed time and time again he was delivered👏🏾.
The thing I like about the storms is there’s always an outcome.
It can only go 2 ways
They pull you down
They bring you up
You can keep getting carried away with the storm even after it’s over😵
You can learn from the storm and get stronger.💪🏾😏
I recently listened to a Kirk Franklin song “just for me” which resonates a lot with this message
especially the part…
“But if necessary pain, Is the ingredient for change, Even when life may be bittersweet, It’s working, Just for me”
And those words are so true🙌🏾. At the end of it, all these storms are for your good. God allows them to build you and make necessary changes in your life. Moreover, they allow you to be ready to do what God has prepared for you to do in that season.
If you are in a storm right now and struggling to get out and need God to carry you through. This might be your firsts time getting to know God or you might be rediscovering your faith. There are 2 key steps to accomplish
Being born again
Being filled with the spirit
To understand the 1st please visit (Salvation). For the 2nd please reach out to me and I will be able to guide you, I have not yet posted upon this topic but will soon.
God loves you and wants to help you during these tough times but only IF you allow Him.🙏🏾
Stay blessed the most stylish was possible being the you that God made you to be 🙂
