Is what you do, who you are?

Isn’t it great that God calls us by name? Whilst we seek identity from what we have, what we do, our relationship status, we have a God who has an identity for us that is not based on what we do, but on who He is !🙌🏻

Before any human title we may acquire , it’s important that we know that we are children of God. He is our creator, we are His creation, He is the potter and we are the clay .

“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” Genesis‬ ‭1:27‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Growing up as a teen l tried to gain identity by what l did and by my possession. See having being so insecure, l thought that l had to obtain love from God by my performance.

That was far from the truth!, Nothing in this world has power to define who you are in God. He loved us before we even loved Him, He validated and approved of my existence before l was even born! Nothing that l could do can separate me from His love.

You can become so consumed with what you do so much that you forget who you are. It may be that you are a mother, a father, or have a high status in the community, it may be that you do something in the house of God. Whatever it is you are first and foremost “God’s own”.

Even if you fail at what you do, you will still be a child of God.Even when you lose what you have, God still says that you are His!

This truth, changed my life. I pray that it encourages you!

Much love 💖


Embracing the unpredictability of life..

Discomfort, disappointment , disruption, pain are part of life, so is comfort, celebration, love, joy and success. To go through life only expecting the good leaves room for nasty setbacks when things don’t go as planned.

I have decided to give up the notion of comfort and embrace the unpredictability of life .

I realised that when God says fear not He promises to be with us not take us away from the circumstances but to walk through them with us.

“When you pass through the waters,I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you.”Isaiah‬ ‭43:2‬ ‭NKJV‬‬


“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua‬ ‭1:9‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“Yea, though I walk through the valleyof the shadow of death, I will fear no evil;For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” Psalms‬ ‭23:4‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Dear friends there will be valleys, there will be mountains, we may pass through waters, and may have to walk through fiery circumstances , but God is with us. At times your life may need to be disrupted so that there may be progress.

The challenge is in staying calm in the fire, staying alive, to keep praying and praising when everything is against you. Stay in the fight!

I used to get affected so much by circumstances. Functioning through storms of life has been a real struggle.

However life has taught me that not all things will go as planned. Whatever the situation l must keep on keeping on.


So my goal this year is to never stop , regardless of whatever comes my way. However painful the challenge, the heart break, the discomfort will find me ready and prepared. I have stopped too many times, and that has not kept disruptions from coming my way.

So what am l saying today?, As my Pastor would put it “Hope for the best and prepare for the worst.

Embrace the unpredictability of life.

I hope you are encouraged

Much love 💖


The painted picture..

So l have been a little frustrated about my pictures lately 😂. To be honest l allowed myself to get frustrated by a lot of things this month.That being said I’m grateful for the lessons that l learn in each and every challenge.

With only a few weeks left for October to end l look back and see that God really helped me through some tough times and taught me some tough lessons, revealing to me the need to work more so on my attitude in the stormy ⛈ seasons. The fact that I’m writing again is a miracle in itself.

Anyways as l was frustrated at myself wondering why l always look terrible in people’s pictures 😂, God gave me this amazing revelation that got right to the depths of my heart. I know that it might seem very petty to you but l have suffered from a deep seated inferiority complex for the longest of times and though for the most part l have healed, the devil can use a weird looking picture of me to remind me of my painful past.

So today God said to me “Shalom it’s just a painted picture. It doesn’t show who you really are, how kind you are, how loving you are, how much you desire to do well for others, it doesn’t show all that at all. So why are you frustrated at the painted picture.

  • How many times though do we paint a picture of perfection?
  • How many times to we uphold the picture, praise the picture of all that is happening and forget the effort that was put in getting the perfect picture?.
  • How many times do people put so much more effort on the wedding ceremony and forget that they have to work on the marriage itself.

Don’t be disheartened and discouraged by the picture that is painted to you

by your circumstances, by people around you, by how you look now, by what people say, not even by your mistakes It’s only their version and not really the truth . The truth should set you free. The truth is what God says. The true picture of who you are can only be painted by God.

So let God paint a picture of the true you, don’t concentrate on how others see you.. God has the bigger picture..

I hope you’re encouraged

Love ♥️



Have you ever come to a point you find it hard to pray, you have lost hope, you feel weary nothing is working out?. You find yourself impatient with everyone, unable to love, to be kind, self-controlled or whatever goodness you used to be able to do and be? A time when everything seems hard to do. Can l be honest?, l have been in such times.I found myself asking how did l get here? My connection had weakened, l was no longer plugging into my source of power. I was running on insufficientpower.

“When you lose your connection with God, you lose your access! “

Access to peace, joy, patience, self control, you basically lose your ability to bear the fruit of the spirit.

Isn’t it amazing how 🔸we know how to charge up the phone when it’s on low🔹 we know we can’t get any access without internet connection🔺we can’t make calls with insufficient credit in our phones 🔹 we can’t take any photos if we have no space to store them. Hence if you have no connection you are unable to get access and without access you really can’t do much.Interestingly when we look at nature we see that when we take any organism out of its natural ecosystem it will find it difficult to survive. (If we take a fish out of water it wouldn’t survive)..

♥️I love John 15:4 “Remain in Me, and I [will remain] in you.Just as no branch can bear fruit by itself without remaining in the vine, neither can you [bear fruit, producing evidence of your faith] unless you remain in Me.” JOHN‬ ‭15:4‬ ‭AMP‬‬

The biggest mistake we could ever do is run from God. . God already knows our imperfections and struggles. He wants to help us. He can’t help us if we are running from Him.

I am reminded of all the things that Jesus Christ is to us, 1️⃣He is the True Vine2️⃣ The Good Shepard3️⃣ The Bread of Life 4️⃣The Door 🙌🏻5️⃣ The Way 6️⃣The Truth 7️⃣ The Resurrection …

How can we expect to have truth, life, good direction, goodness, peace …. without Him, when He is all these.

I am convicted to fight for my connection with God..

🔸Prayer is fundamental, it is communication with God.

🔸 The Word of God is our food, let us feed on it and meditate on it.

🔸 The power is in abiding, remaining connected, regardless of how much you feel you have sinned, God loves you.

Keep in touch with the Heavens ..

I hope you are encouraged

Much Love ♥️



With just one day to go for my birthday 🎉, in Australian time ( 16 September). l couldn’t help but wonder how much of the life I’m living is truly what God had intended for me? How much of His purposes am l fulfilling? How much of my goals are His? I realised l could actually live a life on earth and never really be who l was created to be.

We were all created by God, and for His purposes.. “Through Him and For Him🙌🏻, l think that’s just powerful..

There are many instances in the bible where we see God bringing an answer to a problem in the world by bringing a baby into the world. Each one of us has a purpose that God put in us, there is a situation that needs a person just like you to help solve. 🔸We have been loved and chosen beforehand , predestined, called , justified and we will also be glorified.

The birth of an answer 🔹Jesus was born to bring Salvation “She will give birth to a Son, and you shall name Him Jesus (The LORD is salvation), for He will save His people from their sins.” MATTHEW 1:21 AMP

🔸Samuel was an answered prayer for Hannah and a prophet appointed by God “And all Israel from Dan [in the north] to Beersheba [in the south] knew that Samuel was appointed as a prophet of the LORD.” 1 SAMUEL 3:20 AMP

🔹John the Baptist – was born to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. “It is he who will go as a forerunner before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, TO TURN THE HEARTS OF THE FATHERS BACK TO THE CHILDREN, and the disobedient to the attitude of the righteous [which is to seek and submit to the will of God]–in order to make ready a people [perfectly] prepared [spiritually and morally] for the Lord.”LUKE 1:17 AMP

🔸Paul “Paul, an apostle (special messenger, personally chosen representative) of Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed) by the will of God, …COLOSSIANS 1:1 AMP

Jeremiah -““Before I formed you in the womb I knew you [and approved of you as My chosen instrument], And before you were born I consecrated you [to Myself as My own]; I have appointed you as a prophet to the nations.””

‭‭JEREMIAH‬ ‭1:5‬ ‭AMP‬‬

I can’t imagine how our lives would have turned out if these Great people in the Bible had not lived out their purposes in God.

And I am beginning to see more and more the importance of living in the will of God. Generations to come depend on our obedience.

7 Things about me 😊

1. I am a nurse
the first born in a family of two

3️⃣ l love to worship God, I don’t like to be called a singer though, I am a minstrel 🙂

4️⃣ l have a crazy sense of humour 😂

5️⃣ I love ❤️ God, He is my daily bread, the air l breathe..

6️⃣ I enjoy writing and reading.

7️⃣ l believe that l have the ability to relate to different kinds of people, l love to love, to be resourceful and useful.

So l am brought to a time of reflection, and a time of pressing in to God, praying that He may grant us the grace to live out our purpose, giving birth to those things that He has put in us.

I hope this encourages you to see your birthday 🎉 in a even more special way and challenges you to seek out God’s purposes for your life.

Much Love❤️


The Word of our testimony..

I find it mind blowing, eye opening even, that one can overcome evil situations by the words that come out of their mouths.

Makes me wonder half the time why l never grasp the habit of confessing and speaking into existence the things l want to see in my life.

Come to think of it we serve a God who speaks things into existence

“(as it is written [in Scripture], “I HAVE MADE YOU A FATHER OF MANY NATIONS ”) in the sight of Him in whom he believed, that is, God who gives life to the dead and calls into being that which does not exist.”

‭‭ROMANS‬ ‭4:17‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Whatever comes out of our mouths therefore has the capacity to manifest itself into existence, be it sadness, be it joy either in our lives or in the person who we have spoken it to.

We should not take for granted our mouths, they are divine weapons ! When they are filled with the word of God , they have the capacity to change atmospheres.

It is with the mouths we give praise and worship to God.

“With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of God.” JAMES‬ ‭3:9‬ ‭AMP‬‬

My focus today is on how we can better use the word of God, through the word of our testimony in difficult situations, even in good times.

Overcoming by the word of our testimony

(Confessing it out loud)

1️⃣In weakness – “I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose–I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.]”PHILIPPIANS‬ ‭4:13‬ ‭AMP‬‬ 🙌🏻

2️⃣Feeling timid- “For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control].”2 TIMOTHY‬ ‭1:7‬ ‭AMP‬‬

3️⃣ Discouraged – “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”Joshua 1:9 NIV

4️⃣Feeling unlovednor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the [unlimited] love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” ROMANS 8:39 AMP

5️⃣Things falling apart- “And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose.” ROMANS 8:28 AMP 👌

6️⃣Fighting spiritual welfare – “When He had disarmed the rulers and authorities [those supernatural forces of evil operating against us], He made a public example of them [exhibiting them as captives in His triumphal procession], having triumphed over them through the cross.”COLOSSIANS 2:15 AMP

These are just some of the verses l came across, the Bible is a rich resource, More so, the Word of God, it is alive and active. When we speak it into our lives and circumstances it has the power to do that which it was sent to do!

I hope this encourages you, to testify of the works of God, to speak life into situations, to change your circumstances by your praise..

I am also taking hold of this principle and learning daily to watch over my words.

Much Love ❤️


Joy Unspeakable …

How can one have joy in the midst of life’s ups and downs? At times the enemy uses wounds from the past to keep you from enjoying your life. As you may have already know, l am on a pursuit to live and experience all that was released for me at Calvary when Jesus Christ gave Himself for us. And unspeakable Joy is definitely our portion in Jesus Christ.

There is a joy that is unspeakable, inexpressible, unshakable and full of glory, this Joy we find in the presence of God. In the presence of God there is fullness of joy -Psalms 16:11.

So how do we get this Joy?

🔹There is undoubtedly something in life that we choose to make a source of our joy. Even the people in our lives can be our source or even achievements, jobs the list is unending.

🔸If you however base your joy on people, material things then your joy is conditioned to those things.

♦️You can’t need everyone’s approval before you decide to ignite the spark God has put in your life. You give them power to blow you out too.

🛑Therefore the only constant joy that is never ending, inexpressible, full and glorious is found in God, by us believing in Him, and making Him the source of our joy.

Joy unspeakable is found in the Lord!

1️⃣ Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 | KJV

2️⃣Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer.Romans 12:12 | KJV

3️⃣ Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.Philippians 4:4 | KJV

4️⃣ May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 NIV

Shift your focus from circumstances, from how you feel and focus on God.

If your mentality doesn’t shift you remain under the dark cloud of the painful memories in the past.

The presence of God in us results in fruits of the spirit as indicated above ☝🏽 Galatians 5 :22-23, and Joy is a fruit.

This is just perfect 👌, We already have Joy, it has been given to us by God. All we need to do is to cultivate it and maintain an attitude of Joy regardless our circumstances.

🙏 Pray according to the word of God, Seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit as you ask for God to fill you with his glorious Joy.

🙏Dear Father in heaven, thank you for your unconditional love and your forgiveness. May you fill us with Joy that is beyond understanding, for we trust in you, So that we may overflow with joy and hope in you through the Holy Spirit regardless of the challenges we face. Thank you Lord for you hear us when we call. Amen amen.

May you overflow with the Joy of the Lord

Much Love ❤️
