When Did I Start…

Popping out of one’s bubble can be hard when focusing on ourselves is so easy. The more we focus on our needs and revolve everything around ourselves the tougher our bubbles become. Some can even become as tough as titanium (actually searched this up, much stronger than steel😬). When the bubble gets to this state we may feel like everything is okay and that we are functioning smoothly🤦🏾‍♀️. However, in reality, we are delaying God’s plan for us and limiting His ability to work through us.

Song of Solomon 8:8, NKJV

We have a little sister, and she hath no breasts:
what shall we do for our sister in the day when she shall be spoken for?”


I was listening to a sermon at church and this verse surprised me 😲. It not your typical verse that you would hear a preacher reference. I began to recall a post I did on this topic 2 years ago (Pop that bubble). And God began to reveal a couple of things.

Allow me to dive 🏊🏾‍♀️ into this scripture a little bit.
To have “no breasts” is to lack something
To have full breasts is to not lack that which we need.
For women in that time, full breasts were a sign of having the ability to properly nurture a child and give them the necessary nutrients.

In this scripture, the shulamite brothers were worried because their “little sister” with “no breasts” and would not be prepared for her being spoken for (back then it was in regards to finding a suitor). “What will we do” they were troubled because she would not be ready because of her lack of breasts. Likewise, God is worried when we bubble ourselves, trust only ourselves and when the times comes lack preparation for Him to speak through us.

The more consumed we are in ourselves and the more we try to do things ourselves, the smaller our “breasts” become. These small breasts symbolise the lack we have of the necessary things that God wants to instil in us to do what He has planned.

The more selfish we become the more we depend on our own power, our own will and become less dependent on God.

But is it not written: “…Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit,
saith the LORD of hosts.” (Zechariah 4:6, NKJV)

And I will reveal the truth about the dangers of selfish bubbles.
When we are in this state especially as Christians, based on experience, when things fail we are most likely to go to God accusatorily. “Why did you let this happen, Lord?” “why me?” “I feel so far from you” “why have you forsaken me Lord..?” am I hitting the right buttons here 🛎.

In these moments we are so focused on ourselves we forget what God has done and continues to do for us. We disregard the small wins in life and blame God for the loss of our bigger desires. We Forget that this very breath, every day we live is by His grace. He decides that we are worthy to live another day and I don’t know about you but that in itself is enough to never doubt God and to be so thankful. We are like the “little sister “with “no breasts” 👀 🙆🏾‍♀️ yea I know tragic truth 😪

A couple of weeks ago this was me 😱shocker I know. and as I was in prayer
God began to remind me “was it not I who…”, “Was it not I that…”. I came to the realisation that I was so focused on what I must accomplish if I could accomplish it that I completely forgot that I had a capable God.🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️
And all I could say in the end was “when did I start…”
When did I start forgetting what God had already done for me?
When did I start relying on myself?
When did I start forming my bubble?
When did I start not thanking God even for a new day?🥺

And with this, I repented and thanked God for this reminder.😭🙏🏾

On a final note, I would like to say, it’s not about me it’s not even about you, it’s about us giving our lives to Him, fully depending on God and allowing Him FULL access to work in us. And that can only happen when we break the selfish bubble around us and allow God in.

Some of you have nearly unbreakable bubbles, you may be a beginner Christian or have never known God before. But if you feel this way that you need to break out of this bubble and allow God in then I invite you to do this sinners prayer and receive Jesus into your heart. That is the first step to breaking that tough bubble.
Sinner’s prayer 🙏🏾

After this feel free to contact me and I am more than willing to help you through this new Journey of your with Christ.

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

The Sweetness Of A Thank you

My heart was full of joy and my day was made brighter all because of just one statement “Thank you”☺️. How do you feel when someone thanks you? For me the past few days, I have been thanked unexpectedly for unexpected things😳. If you’re like me, I don’t know how to act when I am thanked, I’m rather very awkward 😅 and just simply end up thanking them for thanking me🤣🤷🏾‍♀️. However, at the same time, I can’t help but be filled with a sense of joy😊😁. I bet some of you feel the same when thanked for something, it really just makes your day and you fill more positive and all in all in good vibes for the rest of the day🌸✨. So can you imagine how sweet our thanks is to God?

The sweetness of a thank you has the power to change one’s mood and course for the day. How does our thankfulness to God change His mood? does it give Him that sweetness?
As I began to wonder about this, something happened, I was reading my daily bible scripture and surprise surprise it was a passage on praising God.

David’s Song of Thanksgiving
“On that day David first delivered this psalm into the hand of Asaph and his brethren, to thank the LORD:
Oh, give thanks to the LORD!
Call upon His name;
Make known His deeds among the peoples!
Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him;
Talk of all His wondrous works!
Glory in His holy name;
Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the LORD!
Seek the LORD and His strength;
Seek His face evermore!” (1 Chronicles 16:7-11, NKJV)

“For the LORD is great and greatly to be praised;
He is also to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the peoples are idols,
But the LORD made the heavens.
Honor and majesty are before Him;
Strength and gladness are in His place.” (1 Chronicles 16:25-27, NKJV)

“Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.” (1 Chronicles 16:34, NKJV)

This caused a smile on my face 😏 I knew God was talking 😊because not only did it show how great God is but it also showed the importance of giving thanks to God. I think it is safe to say that the notion of giving thanks to God is mentioned multiple times in the bible and is a standard practice for a Christian to give thanks to God. But how often do we do this?

Especially now when we are facing such hard times in this pandemic. If you’re like me living in Australia, it went from fires 🔥 and floods 🌊 to a pandemic 😷 , I mean seriously! Who has the time to be thankful right?😰

In times like these, we are more inclined to question God as to why such things are happening🧐🤨. We become very consumed with our current situations 😫 trying to find man-made solutions when the key to our victory is in Him😲.
Would it then not be easier to trust God and give Him thanks through the good and the bad?🤔

Let’s dive a bit into the evidence of thanks (offering/sacrifice) by the Israelites that was a sweet aroma to the Lord.

“And the LORD smelled a soothing aroma. Then the LORD said in His heart, “I will never again curse the ground for man’s sake, although the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; nor will I again destroy every living thing as I have done.” (Genesis 8:21, NKJV)

“I will accept you as a sweet aroma when I bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you have been scattered; and I will be hallowed in you before the Gentiles.” (Ezekiel 20:41, NKJV)

“and you make an offering by fire to the LORD, a burnt offering or a sacrifice, to fulfill a vow or as a freewill offering or in your appointed feasts, to make a sweet aroma to the LORD, from the herd or the flock,” (Numbers 15:3, NKJV)

In these passages, people were giving thanks to God through their sacrifices and offerings and these were SWEET aromas to God, it pleased Him. And this provoked action from God. Firstly God promised never again to curse the earth. The others swayed God time and time again to forgive and save the Israelites and to keep His promise that He made with Abraham.

Giving thanks is a sweet aroma to God and it causing blessings in many ways.
Now I’m not saying give thanks expecting to get blessing back, no🙅🏾‍♀️, simply just give thanks to God sincerely showing your love towards Him and trust in Him🙏🏾🙌🏾.
These sweet aromas will allow God to work in our lives and continue to bless us even during these times.

I encourage you all today for the next seven days can you give thanks to God, not asking for anything but just recognising Him for who He is and giving thanks.

Okay I know we cannot sacrifice animals, make fires and offer them as they did back in the day but we can offer our thanks to Him through our lips.

“Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.” (Hebrews 13:15, NKJV)

Note: To make it easier you can start on Monday or Sunday whenever your week begins and give thanks to God for the whole week.

10 Bible Verses Glorifying God

Glory to God in the highest🙌🏾🙏🏾✨

This week God has been so good in my life that I just felt an overwhelming sense of glorifying Him. Glorifying about who He is, what He has done and what He will do😩🙌🏾. I don’t know if y’all get like this too but the feeling are so real 😭

Glorifying God is an important part of a Christian’s life and God is very pleased when we give Him his due praise. We sometimes get so wrapped up in our lives and situations that we end up only praying about what WE want and OUR needs and forget to thank God on what we already have and what HE has already done. That’s why it’s important to set aside even a day to just give God glory, praising Him in prayer and song ✨ .

Prayer: Can be telling Him who He is by referring back to what the word (the bible) says about God. And glorifying all the goodness He has done on earth and in your life. 

Song: Singing praises unto Him and worshipping Him. These songs can be ones you know that really emphasis on who God is and how great He is.

Here are 10 Bible verses glorifying God that will help you to understand the importance of glorifying Him and also can be included in your prayers and songs.

  3. “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” (Ephesians 3:20-21, NKJV)
  4. “Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. But do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.” (Hebrews 13:15-16, NKJV)
  5. “And Moses said to Aaron, “This is what the Lord spoke, saying: ‘By those who come near Me, I must be regarded as holy; And before all the people, I must be glorified.’ ” (Leviticus 10:3, NKJV)
  6. “O Lord, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens! Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants, You have ordained strength, Because of Your enemies, That You may silence the enemy and the avenger. When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him?” (Psalm 8:1-4, NKJV)
  7. “I will love You, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; So shall I be saved from my enemies.” (Psalm 18:1-3, NKJV)
  8. “The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.” (Psalm 19:1, NKJV)

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. 🤲🏾

Alone Time With God

Hey, lovely ladies, I am back! A few changes have happened over these past 2 months. All I can say is that I have learnt a few things that I know I must share with you all.

So, Ladies and those gentlemen who have stumbled here WELCOME! I urge you all to feel free in this place, be encouraged in the Lord, communicate and share your opinions.

Today’s topic: Alone time with God.
How is your alone time looking with God?
Strong, medium, weak, non-existent

This is the very question I have been asking myself. I realised it’s easy at first to get motivated to make time for God. For a solid week or so, you will really do the most, prayer, reading the word every day for 1-2 hours. Then just as you’re starting to feel good with the process life decides to get complicated. Now you find yourself struggling to scrap 30min of your time for God. It then slowly turns to barely fitting 5 mins and a short verse in there. Sounds familiar? If so please continue reading.

Why is it so hard for us to commit time to God? Well, it’s something I discovered today as I was writing this. As Humans, it’s easier for us to believe in things we can see “..because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” (John 20:29). Hence making it easier for us to commit to those things. Like with jobs, we can commit to them because we can see the immediate results of them in our bank’s accounts. However, with God, we can’t see Him and the uncertainty of the outcomes with God makes it difficult for us to commit to Him. Even this was evident with the 1st century Israelites’ behaviour. They could see the golden statuses they worshipped but they couldn’t see God this made it easier for them the commit to the others gods such as Baal than God.

This is not the way it should be right? With all God has evidently done in our lives we would assume it to be easier, well no. The Israelites had many wonders performed by God from crossing the red sea, manna provided in the wilderness to enemies handed to them in battle. Still, they turned back from God time and time again.

Commitment really comes down to how much do you love God? Because as far as I’m concerned He loved us so much as unto death (John 3:16). Surely the least we can do to show our love back is by making time to grow and communicate with Him through reading his word and prayer. Just as two people decide to love and commit to one another through marriage that is exactly how we should treat ourselves with God.

Don’t get it twisted I know we are all humans and we make mistakes. Even for myself, I know this is something easier said than done. Well lucky for those who are like me there is a solution. FAITH AND STRENGTH. These are gained by praying to God for the faith and strength to carry on growing with Him one step at a time. Stay blessed!

You don’t need to start with big steps, the little steady steps are the ones that are going to get you there.
