Testimony- The rain does not stop falling just because the calabash is full!

My march update is finally here. It’s pathetic that I’m posting this so late into the new month, perhaps my April update should be called Struggle since I struggle so much with discipline and timeliness. I need God because I promise I’ve tried everything- I’ve got to the end of me, but clearly, there’s nothing I can do. (well, naturally) Anyway, today is a happy day because of the things that the Lord has done. If you remember, when I first started blogging I said it was because when I was asking God to gift me with a new laptop, I promised Him that I would use it to His glory. Well, last month, the Lord gave me the laptop of my dreams. He made the finances available not just for me to purchase a brand new laptop for myself, He also blessed me so much that together with a friend of mine, I was able to bless another friend with a brand new laptop of her own. In addition to the two laptops, God also blessed me with …

Cords that cannot be broken

Yesterday, we spoke about Enoch, the man who did not die but was taken into heaven. I too, am wondering how to become like Enoch because honestly, not having to go through death but straight into eternal life with Jesus is probably the beyond amazing! To help us all, today, here is another blurb from pastor Adeboye about cultivating an eternal friendship with God. Do you want to be a friend of God? Then it is time to sit up. It is time to get serious with your salvation. You can’t be a friend of God when you are still tolerating some nonsense in your life, because God cannot behold iniquity. After 24 years of lack of seriousness, God warned Abraham to sit up. No more Lot. No more hanging around with Hagar. There is no one who partners with God and remains the same. They become role models. If you desire a meaningful relationship with God, you can no longer be fooling around with that strange woman. You can no longer be courting that wrong relationship. …

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 …

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 …

Three of the Ways I Am Creating My Dream Woman

Something changed within me when I turned 20. It was the dawning of a new decade- one that may very well witness several milestones in my life- graduation from college, my first full time job, marriage, and children. I thought long and hard about the woman I want to be ten years from now, and suffice to so say that I came up with a pretty impressive list (by my own standards)
