Marriage

Marriage is love, passion and romance but most of all is friendship and commitment.  We live to build each other up, not tear each other down.  It is me encouraging you and you encouraging me.  It is me been there for you when you needed it the most.  It is me been patient when you are impatient and me been a peacemaker when arguments arises.  It is you providing security for me when I am feeling insecure.

Marriage is compromising even when you are right and he is wrong.  It is communication and socialization with each other.  It is sharing and caring, not keeping hidden secrets, neither telling lies.  It’s not you blaming me and me blaming you.  Its not finding excuses when you know that you are wrong, but to say sorry and please forgive me.  It’s me showing you respect and you giving me back some.  Marriage is togetherness and not division.

Church as usual

I don’t want church as usual,
I don’t want to feel goosebumps on Sunday’s only. I want the Holy Spirit to lead and guide me everyday.
I don’t want to speak in tongues without knowing its interpretation.
I don’t want to speak right only on Sundays and speak evil on Monday.
I want Church to be a place of healing and deliverance, Not a place of slander and gossiping.
Church is not about pleasing the pastor but God. It’s not about wearing fancy clothes, neither big hats. It’s a place to make your heart right before God.
Giving him praise in total adoration.
I want to be righteous everyday tapping into the presence of God.
I want to love everyone even when they treat me wrong.
I want to forgive quickly without holding on to grudges.
I want to bear other’s burden no matter who they are and love them with a genuine heart.

Years Wasted

Why we spend so many wasted years with someone we claim we love and never be married? Too often we sit down with a partner who doesn’t know our true value; and it’s sad to say if we really know our value, we would not be settling when we deserve nothing but the best. We are merely caught up in pretty looks, great sexual satisfaction and comfort but we overlook that life has a lot more to offer.

The question is, if you are good enough to be a sex partner why not commit in marriage?

Today know your true worth and don’t settle when you deserve nothing but the best.

WORDS

Words are powerful, it can harm and even break you.  Words can end a relationship and even attack a person’s character.  Words can bring peace if chosen correctly and it can affect someone immensely.  Words can be attached to our heart, negative words can affect those who are close to us.  Words are what you speak and even think; it can change your future and edifies you.  Words can become things if we speak what we need into existence.

Therefore speak words of blessing and not cursing.  Speak words of love and not hate, words of overflow and not poverty.  Words are spirits and they can live in your heart.  Words when spoken can be echoed.  Life and death are in the words we speak over our-self.  Words can bring people together or even separate good friends.

So today, change your world by changing the words you speak and remember to only speak good words.

Don’t worry

Don’t worry about the things that people may think or say about you.
If you were not a divine gift from God
They wouldn’t make you a priority or a subject of importance.
So focus on you, don’t be distracted in this season.
Look up amidst your circumstances and challenges.
Put God first in everything and he will perfect the rest for you.

I Will Fight

I will fight until I die

I will stand and try

I will fight until my life gets better and my better gets greater.

I will fight until my children are happy and achieved their goals.

I will fight until my enemies become my footstool and are no more.

I will fight to see my mama at peace and living life to the fullest.

I will fight until poverty is turned into wealth. I will fight on my knees and not with swords; lifting up my holy hands as I travail in his presence.

God is still on His throne

  • Don’t quit when things don’t seem right; just know that tomorrow will bring a brighter light. God creates me and you so stay focus and never lose your way. It may seem like your prayers have been forgotten and even a little blurry at times. His time is not my time and his ways are not like mine. He never leaves or forsake us. His answers are yes, wait, it’s not time yet or I have something better for you. At times I cannot see what he has for me, but I know that my latter days will be greater than today.
  • Haggai 2:9
  • God had to remind me when I was separated from my spouse that I must not quit. I was going through some financial strain and couldn’t keep up with my bills even though we were both working. I began seeking God through prayer and fasting and he reassured me that his time is not my time and neither his ways like mine. Sometimes when we are faced with circumstances we tend to want to give up but what we don’t know is that God is setting us up for a blessing. Even though we cannot see what God is doing; it doesn’t mean he is not working it out for us.

    Let us trust God with everything in us.

    Be blessed.

    Take time to heal.

    I have come to the realization that women likewise men always run from one relationship to another after a divorce or break up. When in fact we need time to heal from the past hurt and inner conflict. It is so sad when we do not take the time out to recuperate but bring the baggage from one relationship to another.
    Most of the time we treat our current partner with detestable attitude and behavior without knowing that we are taking out our frustration from previous relationship and causing them pain.
    Yes it is ok to start a new relationship but only after the fact that we take the time to get some counseling, analyze where we went wrong, what we can do to make our next relationship better and also to even forgive our past spouses for the pain and hurt they have caused.

    Fasting

    Fasting is the willing abstinence or reduction from some or all food, drink or both for a period of time. Many people fast for different purposes namely:

    1. Weight loss

    2. To break the bands of wickedness

    3. To uproot generational curses

    4. To be closer to God and even hear more from God.

    5. Fasting can break soul ties and scatter the plans and agenda of the enemy against your life.

    6. It also allows us to express ourselves to God.

    Fasting can heal diseases, set the captives free and strengthen our intimacy with God. It can help us to come out of depression.

    Types of Fast

    1. Daniel fast- this is where you do not partake in any meat but eats fruits, vegetables and drink water. (Daniel 10:3)

    2. Absolute fast (dry fast)- this is when we do not consume any food or liquid of any kind for a period of time (Ezra 10:6; Esther 4:16; Acts 9:9).
