Monday motivation! Faith.

Experience they say is the best teacher, I understood the power of Faith when I was looking for a job.

I was rejected three times, I cried after every rejection but something within me knew I was eventually going to get a job so I kept looking. I listened to motivational messages that lifted my spirit, I prayed and more importantly I never told anyone about my dream. I did get my dream job eventually.

FAITH is believing even when the situation doesn’t look like it. FAITH pleases God! Knowing that your Heavenly Father will make it work out for your own good.

The way to activate Faith is by hearing the word consistently e.g. listen to podcasts, YouTube videos etc. Remember that what you feed grows so feed your spirit man.

Another way to activate your Faith is by reading and meditate your bible. Know what the bible says concerning the situations in your life. For example if you are going through a betrayal Psalm 37:7

Be still in the presence of the LORD, and wait patiently for him to act.Don’t worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes.

Psalms 37:7 (NLT)

Faith releases the power of God!

Monday motivation

You only need to watch a pregnant woman and see the power of God. The science of a sperm and egg meeting to make a human being, and gradually the baby starts to develop little by little amazes me.

If the Almighty God can create the amazing experience in our lives imagine what He can do in your life if only you ask in prayer and have faith. God is not a genie so watch what you ask for because He can see your intentions.

God is all Powerful, all knowing and Infinite.

He doesn’t consult your past to bless your future.

He doesn’t have any rival or equal!

God gives beauty for ashes.

God gives double honour for shame.

When the baby is growing in the womb, the woman is uncomfortable (morning sickness, nausea, spitting) but she endures it all because she knows something beautiful is coming. Your life is just like that of a pregnant woman, those challenges are preparing you for something beautiful.

Make sure you are the type that sees the glass half full not half empty. Remain positive and stay away from people that are negative.

Your change is here!

Trample On Your Scorpions!

We are more powerful than we know. I took my time to meditate on the word “we are made in the image of God” and it made me understand my authority as a child of the most High.

God has given us the power to trample on snakes and scorpions, it is written in the bible and we know the word of God (the bible) is sharper than a double edge sword. What are our snakes and scorpions??

Demons, addictions, sickness, challenges in our family, work and business, witchcraft, sorcery, enchantments etc. Our power lies in our dedication to prayer.

As a child of God you have access directly to Him. Speak into your situation! Use the blood of Jesus as your rod. Never give up in your fight! Until you receive the answer you are expecting keep the faith.

Have an unshakable faith in God! Guard what comes into your mind, stay away from naysayers/negative people.

Fear is a spirit!

Fear will make you not to move forward. How? The what if you ask yourself for every step you want to take will make you believe it is impossible.

Fear makes you question God, fear makes you believe God is not real. The spirit realm rules the physical realm so be careful of what is in your mind. The bible tells us that God has not given us the spirit of fear but of power and a sound mind. The word of God which is found in the bible is sharper than a double edged sword.

Every time you are scared to take that bold step, PRAY and ask for the spirit of boldness.

Every time you are scared! Invite the Holy Spirit.

You are strong and powerful remember we are made in the image of God. Know who you are and whose you are so that you can stand against the spirit of Fear!

Monday motivation

God will always make a way

No matter how bad the situation is

When the world is crumbling around you

Go on your kneels and worship Him

Worship says ‘I trust you’

Worship says ‘I surrender to you’

Worship says ‘I know the plans you have for me are for good

He is Our Father!

Dieu fera un chemin

Peu importe la gravite de la situation

Quand le monde s’ ecroule autour de toi

Agenouillez vous et adorez-le

L’adoration dit je te fais confiance, Dieu

L’adoration dit que je te t’abandonne

L’adoration dit que je sais que les plans que tu as pour moi sont pour de bon

il est notre père

Challenges Bring You Closer To Your Breakthrough

It’s Hard!

I can’t go on like this!

Will things ever change for me!

These are the phrases we use during hard times. As a human being it is normal to feel this way. However you are much closer than you think. Challenges prunes us! It brings out character traits that we will need for that next level.

When I had my first child it was a very humbling experience for me, I became more empathetic towards people especially pregnant women. When people confide in us about their problems we tend to become judgemental and criticize their motives until God puts us in the same situation.

Your attitude during a challenge is definitely your altitude so be careful especially with your words. It is not a permanent situation! It will only get better. Don’t magnify the problem, magnify God in the problem. Remember that what you feed becomes bigger in your life.

Challenges can make you become envious of other people’s victories. Don’t feed that spirit of envy, count your blessings and be happy for their victories.

Challenges push us out of our comfort zone which leads us to our breakthrough. There is always more to achieve.

Being a mother to a girl child

God blessed me with two prophetic girls and when I look at them I am in awe. A Girl Child looks at her mother and takes her view of this world from what she does, what she accepts, her believes and values.

A Girl Child looks to her mother to always be there for her, to be her biggest cheerleader not only when she wins but when she looses too.

A Girl Child studies her mother’s reaction to people and situations which forms her own mentality as she grows.

A Girl Child sees what her mother tolerates and in turn she believes that it is the right step and so she gears towards it too.

A Girl Child watches her mother’s relationship with her father and whatever she sees from her mum she also displays in her own relationships.

There are certain decisions I have made to protect my girls.

  1. I always pray and prophesy into their lives.
  2. I don’t leave them with the opposite sex when I am not around.
  3. My kids tell me everything from what they do with their friends at school to how they feel.
  4. I don’t discuss the plans I have for my kids with anyone except God and their dad.
  5. I am very intentional about their school work, very involved no matter where I am in the world.
  6. I am very intentional about their spiritual life and I make time for it.

People will have opinions on how you should raise your kids. Be careful of the opinions you listen to. It is better to let God guide you using His word, the bible.

Will You Marry me?

A very strong sentence that comes with commitment and responsibility. To some people it’s a dream come true however in reality marriage amplifies what is already inside a person.

Will You Marry me is another way of saying

  1. I am ready to stand by you through the good times and the BAD times.
  2. I am ready to still love you with your flaws and mistakes.
  3. I am ready to be faithful to you.
  4. I am ready to be there for the kids, we will raise them together.

Before you use the sentence” will you marry me” make sure you have spent time with your creator God asking for direction and BE READY to honour the vows you make to your partner.

Not every man will make a good husband/father

Not every woman will make a good wife/ mother

Choose wisely!
