BLESSED SCARS

Waking up slowly, she blinked herself to consciousness.
Laura, while still on her bed had vivid flashes on her life rushing through her mind.
She slowly pulled her self off the bed.
" I've been through so much, she thought to herself. I don't know what else to do. nobody seems to understand."
As she knelt down to say her prayers, all she found her self saying was, " God please help me, I don't know what else to do. Have mercy on me and give me the grace to make it through".


When we are burdened with the weight of uncertainty and the feeling of being lost because things are not just working out, it becomes more difficult to remain at peace and be focused. Worst case, when we do not know what to do, or why 'bad' things or not so good things keep happening each time we try to do something - keeping a job gets more challenging, running a successful business proves almost impossible or maybe even not knowing what exactly it is we are supposed to be doing ( Read road-to-self-discovery-part-1 and part-2 ) . It becomes even more chaotic.

Until our true calling begins to show forth, we will remain pregnant with our dreams, and like every pregnancy- it takes time for the baby (gift, dreams, purpose) to grow. some may take longer than others and this is up to God to decide.

We may think we are ready but there may be some character traits God still wants to change in us before we go out there; it may be that negative attitude we can't seem to let go, uncontrollable anger, lack of patience, foul language etc ... the list goes on and on.

The important thing is to be pregnant with something ( dream, talent etc). God is working to get us prepared to handle these gifts/dreams he has placed in our hearts. - He is giving us the beauty treatment.

So let go of pride, and see the blessing in the scars.
The more we overcome by His grace, the stronger we become in the race.

Remain blessed.

Yours Truly,
:)

Overcoming the fight in your HEAD

This post may not resonate with everyone, though I pray it speaks to as many people that read it. I understand that we all have different understandings and believe systems. But! I believe this cuts across all that as this is a common denominator in our lives. This post may be 'deep' for some, and enlightening for others if you fall in the bracket of the former, it is my prayer that God will give you understanding in your heart as you read.


We are under ATTACK. No matter how blessed and successful we are, we are being attacked or about to be attacked.We are in a HEAD fight with the devil, We must attack him with what we "KNOW" . Your head will lead you where your heart will not take you. Your head is the center of your existence, how you relate to people around you and things in your life, so it is very important to protect your head.
 The enemy is fighting you over the control of your mind (life), Everything that he does, every form of attack is a battle for contro…

The Promise and the Threat

This came to me while I was contemplating a situation in my life where I was struggling to understand why I sometimes 'worry' over things I have surrendered to God. This is where a lot of us fall and stay down for a long time, unless we become enlightened inside of us to pick ourselves up by our believe and in the God we have placed our trust in.
Because of the way the world is and how we have seen/heard about how people treat each other, the wickedness we see and hear or even experienced, have led us to be quick in our respond to a threat than a promise. This is not because we do not 'know' that God is always willing to rescue us when we call on him, but because we have failed to separate the size of the problem, who is responsible for it and the ability of God.
The human nature is "naturally" wicked and full of revenge and spite thereby offering a fertile ground for unbelief, doubt, fear and worry. because when you have been bad towards someone else its on…
