Hello princes and princesses,
How have you been. I have been MIA (and I’m so sorry) for multiple reasons. One being that I was working on the website and new goodies but the pandemic has interrupted my plans! #Covid19
I couldn’t go another year without pouring my heart out and encouraging at least one soul, so I’m kick starting my return with a testimony. #YAAASSSS
IF YOU KNOW ME YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE AND VALUE TESTIMONIES; none is too little. All the Glory belongs to God so we MUST testify.
Once again God has proven that I need to stop worrying and relying on my self mainly… (yes after all these years in Christ I sometimes still do)😭
This semester has been very very very difficult. Between still healing from the worst heartache of my life, losing family members back to back, having to decline a near dream job, health bugs and auntie Covid-19, my stress level was passed the ceiling.
I was not doing too well at school, because my mental health was weak. But my Spirit was STRONG!!!! Fasting and praying with the church and personally in my own time, kept me grounded and going.
But I was not doing well at school… By the time we had transitioned to online classes I was convinced I was going to fail my semester (failing 2 classes out of 3).
Did I say I was stressed? So stressed that my skin broke out BADLY and my weight climbed faster that a monkey on a tree! 🥵
And then… I got my grades! BOOM! I got two very good grades in two classes and passing (this is huge because I was convinced I was failing) in the other one.
Anyways… Why am I sharing this?
Because I’m reminded how easy it is to want to give up when things gets difficult. But we feel like giving (and do) mostly because we depend on our own knowledge, abilities, capacities. We put our confidence mainly (or worse, solely) on ourself. Calling on God only every now and then when the going gets REALLY tough; when the bible tells us to put our trust in God (Proverbs 3:5). I want to encourage you to stop behaving like that! 🛑 ✋
Put all your confidence in God even when it seems impossible. Do not limit Him, remember what He tells us in Jeremiah 32:27. He is God NOTHING IS TOO DIFFICULT OR IMPOSSIBLE TO HIM.
Not by might, not by power, does not only apply to casting demons away… It applies to every single area of your life!
Do your part, but GIVE GOD THE WHEEL. He will give you the intelligence, the drive, the knowledge, the patience, the courage, and all the skills you need in order to succeed in all of your endeavours.
Some of my favourite verses these days have been:
“Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.” – Psalms 127:1 NIV
“Let not your heart be troubled: you believe in God, believe also in me.” – John 14:1 NIV
When you build, work, study, choose etc., with God, you’re heart will be at peace AND He will make you successful in all your ways.
