Dear Stranger

Too often we say ‘Yes’ to things when we should have said ‘No’. In fact, just thinking about saying ‘No’ can leave people feeling uncomfortable, guilty even, that they would rather suffer silently after saying ‘Yes’. Just to be clear, I’m not talking about saying ‘No’ for the sake of saying ‘No’. I’m talking about those moments when you know in your heart you should have said ‘No’ and you spend every moment afterward putting yourself down, feeling trapped in a decision you wish you could take back.

Well I’m here to tell you it’s OK to say ‘No’. Better yet it’s OK to say ‘No’ and not give an reason. And incase you didn’t know, it’s OK to change your mind. Embrace it. Become familiar with it. When you able to say ‘No’, there is no burden in saying ‘Yes’ . 🙏❤️

My Mother, My Love

My mother, my love
How blessed and beautiful you are
A wonderful woman after God’s own heart
No other, not one will ever compare
Faithful and true you have always been
Each scar, well hidden, a testament to your story and love for me

My mother, my love
On my knees I thank God everyday
That it was in your womb we were formed
As your strength and grace shine through
My only wish is to be half as strong as you
But until then thank you is all I can say
My mother, my love
Stay blessed everyday

Sex Sells right?

I have been going round in circles thinking about the best way to approach this topic, but I do know that many may not agree with me. I’m talking about Transactional Relationships. In other words men dating younger girls for some form of payment, which in recent years, has seen an increase in the reverse (for the sake of this post will focus on the former although it applies to both). In fact it has slowly become a widely known open secrete, which has taken on a degree of normalcy. However before I dive in, I must first place all this in context.

The Importance of a Bible Based Church

“Any halfway clever devil would decorate the highway to Hell as beautiful as possible.”

― Criss Jami

The earliest memory I have of church is sadly of me falling asleep in the middle of service, but at the young age of 4, I had little concern for what the pastor had to say. Yet all these years later, I realized just how important it is to actually listen to what your pastor is saying. On a continent that is said have the most Christians and not to mention thousands of Churches, there is no greater time to pay attention to the message and ask the right questions Continue reading “The Importance of a Bible Based Church”

Love and Kindness

Dear Stranger
Treat people with love and kindness. It is easy to act carelessly and think it does not matter, but even as time passes, people may not remember exactly what you said or did, but they will always remember how you made them feel.
“love your neighbor as yourself”

Leviticus 19:18

Climb The Hills, Conquer Your Mountain.

Dear Stranger

Yet somewhere in all the madness you still remembered to set your New Year’s resolutions. There’s just one problem. In what feels like less than 5 minutes, you broke every single one. What next? Is it already time to throw in the towel? Well here a few tips to help you achieve your New Year’s Resolutions. Continue reading “Climb The Hills, Conquer Your Mountain.”

Let it go!

Dear Stranger

The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.-Steve Maraboli

With less then two days left in what feels like the fastest year ever, I can’t help being overwhelmed by the uncertainty of 2019. To be honest I’m still in a state of disbelief. There is so much I did but even more I did not. Plans, hopes and dreams act as constant reminders, leaving me unsettled and feeling like I failed. How then do I welcome 2019 with a heart set on an unfinished  2018? The answer to that is really quite simple, let it go. Yes, let it all go. Yet the simplest of answers are often the hardest to fulfill.

My sister and I had a big disagreement recently and I was hurt (I’m sure she was too). We were barely speaking and absolutely miserable. More than a week later, God told me to let it go. There was no booming voice or bright light or anything like that. It was just an impression on my heart. Naturally I was like “Nope, it’s not fair, why must I be the one?” As you know, God always gets His way. I kid you not, in every movie, t.v show and song, all I heard were messages about forgiveness and trusting Him and His way. Surfice to say, I did not last 24 hours before I gave in and my sister and I couldn’t be happier. This does not mean we won’t have to talk about it but this way we will be speaking from a place of love and peace instead of anger and hurt.

You see, when you hold onto all the hurt and disappointments, when challenges arise, that is the place you respond from. You will be left feeling defeated and hopeless. You wish to be happy, pray to be, but often feel your attempts only bring a fleeting sense of joy and not the everlasting joy you desperately crave.

So today I encourage you to just let it go. Hold on to the little things that bring true joy to your heart. You can’t change to past, and can’t control the future, but in this moment you can say “not everything is as I had hoped, but I woke up this morning and I made it to the end of the year. I MADE IT!” Then you begin to realize that you are speaking and responding from a place of victory. You will realise that your joy is not dependent on your circumstances but on your state of mind.

Again I say, LET IT GO! Forgive on purpose to be happy on purpose and take a victorious step into 2019.

So then, let us pursue [with enthusiasm] the things which make for peace and the building up of one another [things which lead to spiritual growth].                        Romans 14:19
