I Have an Infatuation!

The word of God is described using several metaphors. It is a double edged sword, it is fire and it is a hammer that can break a rock in pieces. The Bible admonishes us to keep the Word of God always on our lips, and to meditate upon it day and night. Since we cannot meditate on something we do not know, we are required to literally devour our Bibles– eat, chew, digest the word of God. Let it live and breathe in you and watch God do wonders in your life. Without further ado, here is some scripture that is currently rocking my world: Seest thou a man diligent in his work, he will stand before kings and not mean men. Proverbs 22:29 This proverb reminds us of the blessings of diligence. The Lord loves those who work hard to multiply the gifts and talents He has blessed them with. This is especially comforting to students as excellence in school work demands exceptional motivation. Hold fast friend! You will stand before kings, you will be the envy of nations, you will be …

He’s still God in the bad times!

I heard this song for the first time two days ago at Daughters of Zion– our Christian fellowship group on campus. The song spoke volumes to my heart, and I’m sharing since I’m on this encouragement roll right now! See here and here. God On the Mountain (Lynda Randle) Life is easy, when you’re up on the mountain And you’ve got peace of mind, like you’ve never known. But things change, when you’re down in the valley. Don’t lose faith, for you’re never alone. For the God on the mountain, is the God in the valley. When things go wrong, He’ll make them right. And the God of the good times is still God in the bad times. The God of the day is still God in the night. We talk of faith way up on the mountain. Talk comes so easy when life’s at its best. Now down in the valleys, of trials and temptations That’s where your faith, is really put to the test. For the God on the mountain is the God in the …

Keep Waiting- Do not create counterfeits!

I saw the quote below on Heather Lindsey’s blog. Heather is a minister, and she and her husband are Pastors of The Gathering Oasis Church. You can name it, claim it, throw money at it, dance around it, scream, shout and wiggle but if it ain’t time for God to open up that door, you may be SO focused on that area that the enemy sends you a counterfeit. That counterfeit will look like God’s best, sound like God’s best, have the best benefits plan & everything will look sparkly & perfect but you will have a little tug in your heart that says.. no. You see, it wasn’t God’s timing for that thing, so you ran ahead of Him & created an Ishmael while ignoring that tug that says no. God’s best in ANY area takes great development, tests to uproot the garbage in you, trusting in the Lord, faith & rest. So, calm your rushed soul. HE has not forgotten about you. -Heather Lindsey I’m not sure why, but I have been really moved by scripture …

WAIT on the Lord- Your appointed time is coming soon!

I read this a few days ago in my devotional. I am currently subscribed to Open Heavens by Pastor Adeboye. It’s a lovely daily devotional- very easy to understand and the daily messages are not too lengthy! I will subscribe for you if you send me your email address. No, really, please send me your email address and I’ll subscribe for you so you don’t have to pay a dime! Moreover, in God’s timetable, there is a time for the fulfillment of prophecy. To be destined for such a glorious position in the agenda of the Almighty God is not a general gift and not by accident. It is usually for a purpose – a divine purpose. When your time of fulfillment of prophecy comes, … God will suspend natural laws and break protocols for your sake. He will make ways for you where there is no way. He will connect you to your destiny-helpers, and your journey to success will be accelerated. – Pastor Adeboye, Open Heavens Hold on, your time of favor is coming! Habakkuk 2: …

Three Things

Hello everyone, I hope you are all well. Fellow East Coast people, I hope the snow isn’t too depressing! For today, I would like to share three things that have been on my mind for a while- emotional pain, blogging, and 50 Shades of Grey. 1. Moriah– I started a blog when I turned 18 two years ago. Somewhere along the line, I became convicted that I wasn’t ready to blog, so I deleted the site. That’s how serious I have always intended to take a blog whenever I did start one. Barely a month into launching this new blog, I am already running out of ideas.

HEALING (January Recap)

First of all, thank you very much for the love and positive feedback on my last post about my sister. Please keep sharing your thoughts with me, as I really appreciate thoughtful, constructive feedback about relevant topics I should write about, and just general thoughts. Today, I want to share a few lessons I learnt in January. I intend to do this at the end of every month to ensure that we have enough material for thorough reflection come December 2015, and determine how to improve in 2016. We’re still creating that Dream Woman, remember! Healing- ‘To Make Whole’ I’d like to use an analogy. Imagine that you have a jug that is filled with water. But you want to fill your jug with orange juice. Try as you may, you cannot fill that jug with orange juice unless you empty the water. This, dear friends, is what the Lord has been teaching me for a few weeks now. Please pardon me if you find this post slightly vague, the point is not to share my …

6 Lessons from my 6 Year Old Sister

‘Do you know the one thing I admire most about you?’, he asked. He had the expression of someone about to spill a succulent secret. ‘You’re very childlike. Don’t ever lose that’. That was the one of the best compliment I ever got in recent times (Not like I’m ancient or anything). I would love to share why with you. It also has everything to do with the fact that I have the sassiest, most confident, and smartest 6 year old sister ever! Here are a few lessons I have learned from children, and especially from my sister:
