#WIFE: You Won’t Regret It

Trust God-You wont regret it

Keep trusting God.

Give up trying to help Him but don’t give up trusting Him to help you.

Trust Him. In everything. For everything. With everything.

You’ve got nothing to lose but e.v.e.r.y.thing to gain.

You may get discouraged, you may despair, you may be dismayed but choose to trust Him anyway.

Scripture reassures us, “No one who trusts God like this—heart and soul—will ever regret it.” – Romans 10:11 MSG

He is good, His plans are better, He knows best.

Don’t stop trusting Him.

You won’t regret it.

Be encouraged.

Don’t Find X, Trust God

In the equation of life, time (t) may be unknown (x) to us, but it’s not to God, and He’s not like our math teacher asking us to find x, He wants us to know instead, that He is the constant, He doesn’t change, we can trust Him.

Not to mention, all the ‘x’ we found when we were in school, who or how has it helped? Lol, but seriously though, what’s the use of worrying about what you have no control over?

Timing, the bible says, is the Father’s business. (Acts 1:7)

So, rest girl.

Rest in the fact that, you may not know when, but you know the One who does.

Trust Him, trust God.

So They Say Time Is Going

Time

They say time is going.

Well yea, it’s going to get to mine.

It may seem to be tarrying,

but it’s going to get to mine.

There’s no cause for worrying,

for it’s going to get to mine.

My steps, God’s ordering,

guiding me to mine,

there’s no point hurrying,

He’s perfecting  me for mine.

So, though they say time is going,

He says there’s a right timing

and I believe that time is coming.

So yea, time is going,

going to get to mine.

It’s Okay To Not Like Being Single

Single.jpg

It’s okay to have days you are not particularly excited about being single or you struggle with being content in it as you could do with some companionship.

There are days like that, life has its ups and downs and the single life is no exception.

Just please, always remember that in those moments of weakness, God’s grace is available and sufficient, always.

To be joyful in singleness doesn’t necessarily mean you (have to) like being single, it simply means you choose to trust God anyway.

That’s what changes everything, especially your perspective.

It’s written;

“But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.” – Jeremiah 17:7-8

Trusting God, relying and depending on Him, is where the joy comes from, because you know, your God is a Father who’s tender and compassionate towards you,  who has only good plans for you, thinks only goods thoughts of you, has your best interest at heart, greater than you could ever dream and only wants to fill your life with good things.

You may not like this season He has you in, you may not understand how you are 30 going on 31 and you are not even dating anyone, when you thought you’d have 3 kids by now, you may not understand why all your friends are married and have had their 3 kids and you are still livin’ la Vida sola, you may not understand how every one else’s husband has been able to find them but it seems yours is having some difficulties finding his way.

You may not understand it all, perhaps that’s why God says, to trust in Him with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, stop trying to figure it out, just trust Him.

You can trust Him because He is so, so faithful.

You know that, morning came today because a long long time ago, God said that’s how it should be, right?

A long time ago. In the beginning, according to the bible. How long ago was that?

Yet, it has stayed that way, because He said so. Wow!

He is the same One whose word says that, “weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning”.

So, let every morning be a reminder of God’s faithfulness, a reminder that He keeps His word, He watches over it to perform it, a reminder that if this morning came, then the morning, when your joy will come, will also come, because God has said it.

All I’m trying to say is that, you can trust God.

He. Is. Faithful.

His plans and purpose for you, none can thwart and girl, those plans are good.

Yep, the bible says so, see below;

 “I know that You can do all things, and that no thought or purpose of Yours can be restrained or thwarted.” – Job 42:2

“I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.” – Jeremiah 29:11

Let this be your joy, in times when you don’t like being single, trust that it’s working altogether for good, your good.

It’s okay to have a Father-please-remove-this-cup-from-me moment, but I pray you always get to the nevertheless-not-my-will-but-Yours point and keep going.

You’ll be fine girl, we will be fine.

Be encouraged.

#WIFE: 2017 Didn’t Go As Planned?

happy 2018.jpg

Hey guys,

Happy New Year.

2018, exciting right?  Or not so much? Perhaps, because 2017 didn’t go quite as you thought it would, didn’t end on a good note? Tell me about it.

Barely a week to the end of 2017, I had an accident that left me with a broken forehead and serious pains. You’ve got to be kidding me, this is not how I planned to end the year, just laying there, not able to move around, ‘popping pills’, hurting, crying, cranky, emotional…

But hey, it could have been worse. I was whining about how I was ending the year when I should have been thankful that I was ending the year regardless, I mean.

2018 God can

(That’s me. The photo on the left was few days after the accident, I was getting better, I don’t want to show you anything gory 🙂 and the photo on the right is me doing much more better).

Jan. 1st was the last thing on my mind when I was in pains and my face was covered in blood on Dec. 22nd, but truly, “this too shall pass”. I’m here today, with scars, ‘bald’ and all, healing, stronger, in way less pain and I’m again reminded that God delivers, He heals, He cares, He’s there. Not just there but right in there with you, in whatever you are going through,  He’s the one who takes us through, opening doors, making ways, sending help, showing mercy, giving favour, strengthening us, encouraging us… It’s all Him. Such a good God.

He says, “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned or scorched, nor will the flame kindle upon you.” – Isaiah 43:2

So dear reader, 2017 may not have ended the way you wanted it to but you are still here.

You may say, so what? It’s yet another year, I’m still here but I’m not quite ‘there’ yet.

Well, hang in there. Let the new year renew your hope and trust in God, who makes new and is able to take you ‘there’.

I don’t belong to the “new year, new me” school of thought (I’m sorry if that’s yours, maybe we’ll talk about it later), I encourage you rather, to continue to press on.

“Not that I have now attained [this ideal], or have already been made perfect, but I press on to lay hold of (grasp) and make my own, that for which Christ Jesus (the Messiah) has laid hold of me and made me His own.” – Philippians 3:12

If you are not in Christ, as in, haven’t accepted Him as your Lord and Saviour, then you definitely need to do so to become new, but if you are, then please continue in Him.

Continue to love God, walk with Him, trust Him, wait on Him, to grow, to love and live to fullest, the life He has given you (regardless of what it looks like now).

Continue in Him.

May we attain new heights in our walk with God this year and as we seek Him, may our lives continually be filled with the joy, peace and pleasures in His presence.

Happy 2018.

Be encouraged.

#WIFE: Help’s Always Available

help.png

Happy Wednesday.

Hope you are doing okay?

Just want to remind you that you are never without help.

No matter the matter, you can always look up and call on God.

“God is our Refuge and Strength [mighty and impenetrable to temptation], a very present and well-proved help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change and though the mountains be shaken into the midst of the seas, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling and tumult. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!” Psalms 46: 1-3 AMPC

“So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm [I will not fear or dread or be terrified]. What can man do to me?” Hebrews 13:6 AMPC

So dear reader, let not your heart be troubled but let it trust and rest in God’s word.

Be encouraged.
