Beauty for ashes

My dearly beloved broken crayons still colour .

Your History doesn’t determine your destiny .

The current situation in your life doesn’t dictate your future.

Your pain serves as fuel for your testimony and your destiny.

Your mourning, your despair, your shame has qualified you to receive beauty, blessings and a double portion of honour.

God is in the habit of making the most out of the worst situation. Bringing out the best in us through the challenges we face.

To all who mourn in Israel,

1️⃣he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, 2️⃣a joyous blessing instead of mourning, 3️⃣festive praise instead of despair.

In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the Lord has planted for his own glory.” Isaiah‬ ‭61:3‬ ‭

Have you experienced shame?

“Instead of shame and dishonor, you will enjoy a double share of honor. You will possess a double portion of prosperity in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours.” Isaiah‬ ‭61:7‬ ‭

God is so good 🙏, Every situation in your life that you thought would be the end of you, He uses it to make you a hundred times better .

There is beauty waiting for you on the other side, Hold on!

I hope you’re encouraged

Much love 💕

Shalom

God is in charge of all seasons…

October has just started and I found myself already wanting it to end. The amount of things happening and things to happen had me overwhelmed and l felt as if God had left me in September.. 😔

As funny as this may seem problems do have a tendency together with the devil himself at work to make us forget that God truly is in control of everything in our lives .

There is peace and wisdom in knowing that God is in charge of everything and every season in our lives. Nothing takes God by surprise, He knows our going in and out coming out. We are His creation, created for His purposes.

When seasons change though, the process may be so uncomfortable. We may find ourselves wondering if God is still in charge in turbulent seasons. As l read Ecclesiastes 3, l understood that there is a timefor everything.

There are things that happen in life and we can find ourselves blaming each other or getting angry at ourselves, yet there really isn’t anything that we could have done to make it change or go away. In fact somethings had to happen. At times we need to praise God for all the doors 🚪 He shut . How would we know God as a healer if we never get sick, how would we know he is a provider if we never have a need. Not that l am advocating for problems but l am encouraging a change of the way we view trying times.

One thing l noticed however is that when seasons change, there is a need to change our mindsets too. Just as we change our clothing to keep warmer or cooler, we need to do the same. Some seasons need more action than others. This season has got me pressing into God more than ever, l am unable to solve any of the situations l am going through by myself.

Anyways 🙂 now that l have realised that God is in charge , l have decided not to worry. It won’t change anything.

I don’t know what you are going through, wether it’s good or bad, l am encouraging you and letting you know that God is in charge.

And there is no one else better to be in control than “The Great I Am”, The God Who Is, The God Who Was, and The God Who Is to Come!🙌🏻🙏

And guess what, He never changes, He loves us and He is working all things together for our good. Isn’t that just perfect 👌.

So l say Amen to His will, Amen to His ways 🙏.May we always be aware of the greatness of The God Who is on our side .

God loves you! Yes you😀

Much love ♥️Shalom
