Look To God

Okay, so Rona (coronavirus) has been running mad and causing a lot of havoc😤. Like seriously to the point people are turning into savages and fighting over toilet paper ?!?!? 🤯

The whole world is filled with more fear now than ever and I think we can confidently say that 2020 is not getting off to a great start😕.

From extreme fires and floods in Australia to what looks like the start of world war 3 and now RONA!! I mean come on now we need a break and its only MARCH🤦🏾‍♀️. It’s quite understandable why people are panicking the way they are doing. It’s looking like the end of the world is near.

But hold on, wait a minute, isn’t this what God was speaking of

“When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:13-14)

God is waiting on us to realise that during all this chaos He is the able one. Not by our might or power but through His spirit, we need to humble ourselves and pray for the nations and ourselves. 

“So he answered and said to me: “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, Says the Lord of hosts.” (Zechariah 4:6). 

Only He has the power because all things belong to Him and there is nothing impossible for Him. It’s time we cling more to God and depend on Him in these times. 

I encourage you all to look onto the lord! ✨

“Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; But we will remember the name of the Lord our God.” (Psalm 20:7)

Stay blessed the most stylish way possible, being the you that God made you to be 😊

Happy Anniversay!

You can believe my surprise yesterday when I saw I had a notification from WordPress. I thought “gee it been a long while I wonder what it could be🤔”. It was a happy anniversary notification celebrating 7 years with WordPress.
I was beyond surprised 😱, 7 years when the Lord planted all this.
I started to reflect…what have I achieved in these years? why did I suddenly stop? and why have I been afraid to come back?

Fear is easy to form but hard to break. Fear of the unknown is what sometimes stops us from taking risks, starting something new or even being open to change. It came to my attention that fear has had me for a while now…

Have you ever stop doing something for so long and kept thinking I should get back to that, but began to fear that maybe you’re not as good as before or it won’t be the same as last time? because can relate. Fear and doubt complement each other, when fear creeps in we start to doubt our capabilities, the talents that God placed in us and we suppress them.

The funny thing is no matter how many times we hear this sometimes it takes certain moments in our lives for this to click, for us to realise what we are doing to ourselves. It’s very true what they say “our biggest enemy is ourselves”. I came to a realisation of this as the ‘verse of the day’ alert came on my phone with a verse which reminded me of how fear has managed to make me delay the things God has put in me to share.

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
Fear God and keep His commandments,
For this is man’s all.” (Ecclesiastes 12:13)

We shouldn’t be wasting time fearing men, fearing what the world is going to think of us🙅🏾‍♀️, who should be fearing God and doing what He has called us to do, as each individual.
I don’t know who needs to hear this but it’s time you too break out of your fear shell. It’s time to stop ignoring the calling inside you, you are worthy and you are capable. For it is God who has installed the gifts in you.✨

I know it’s not an easy ride but you don’t have to go through it alone if you feel like this join me on this journey of breaking lose of fear and rediscovering one’s self. If you need to contact me feel free.

Well, stay blessed the most stylish way possible, being the you that God made you to be 😊

New Month Encouragement..Share your Gifts

I was in my car and as I’m sure others love to do, just chilling in there before heading inside when I just thought to record myself encouraging someone about spreading their gifts and talents as this new month begins.

(1 Timothy 4:14, NKJV)
Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership.

I encourage you all to deliver your gifts to the world. 🤲🏾

Stay blessed the most stylish way possible, being the you that God made you to be! ❤️

Pop That Bubble

First of all blessed Sunday everybody!

Let me start by saying this week was not the greatest😫.

Ever been in that position where everything seems to be going wrong in every shape and form. Then when you think it’s all over that’s when the biggest bombshell of pure misfortune happens. Yeah… that was me this week🤦🏾‍♀️.

During these moments it’s so easy to get lost in yourself. You become so consumed by your situation and thoughts that you end up forgetting the world around you. Moreover, if you’re like me and love having full control over your own life then these situations become hard to handle. Sometimes you even lose your way, your clarity and it becomes hard to grasp a clear vision. If you’re nodding your head or saying yes, keep on reading👇🏾.

These type of situations are hard especially if you are a Christian like me because not only do you lose sight of yourself but God. It becomes harder to pray, seek God and even be grateful because all that is consuming you is stress and misery.

Okay, but how does one even overcome this ?!?

Listen, sometimes it’s not about you it’s about something bigger than you. What I mean by this is that we need to poke a hole out of our little bubble and focus on what matters, what God has called you to do. And for those who still don’t know what that is this is the perfect time to seek God for answers. These are times for less YOU YOU and more what YOU can do for OTHERS.

In these times I like to take a step back and think what is it I do for others that not only pleases God but brings me the greatest sense of accomplishment. And for me, it’s reaching out and encouraging at least one person, knowing I’m drawing someone closer to God gives me the greatest joy.

“Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” (Nehemiah 8:10, NKJV)

You’ll be amazed at the realisation that the real blessings are not in what we have but what we give out to the world. This is enough to eradicate all stress and problems✨.

So what is it that God has called you to do for others?

Let’s put ourselves out of the way as the new week begins and let’s do more for others around us. Trust me your week will go from 0-100 real quick💯.

Stay blessed in the most stylish way possible, being the you that God has made you to be!❤️

TAKE THAT STEP!

Ever had that moment in life where out of nowhere you get a rush of adrenaline at like 2 am in the morning and suddenly have the urge to get things done or begin new things 💃🏾. Now, planning is always the easy bit but taking that first step into action is the struggle.

Okay if you are like me and need everything to be like near perfect before you can start something. Then you will know that sometimes this gets in the way because you feel like you’re not in the right mind space yet and need to reschedule everything 😫. This is a serious trap because then you keep delaying and delaying where action is required.

Even the bible stresses the importance of action,

“23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; 24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. 25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.” (James 1:23-25)

At times we struggle to plan and do things because of that fear of beginning something and failing.

Word of truth: This was totally me this morning as I struggled to start this post because it’s been a while and I feared to post the wrong thing 😅. But this ended up being my word of encouragement 😊🙌🏾.

God has given you special gifts and talents, don’t waste them by keeping them hidden in fear. This is a difficult lesson I had to learn and still am because I’m a person who likes to do things perfectly, and hence fear and end up delaying where God is requiring me to act. However, nothing can be perfect, we only become perfect in Christ when we follow His will and just take that first step into the path that He has prepared for us.

So let me ask you this what are you delaying from starting? What is it that God wants you to do? and finally what is stopping you?

Whatever answers you have for these questions I want you to decide to START TODAY! Don’t delay, even the smallest step is an accomplishment 💯.

“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock” (Matthew 7:24)

Stay blessed in the most stylish way possible, being the you that God made you to be!❤️
