Fight with Faith, not with fist.

The fear of the Lord, has left some of our churches.

The respect of the Sabbath is no more, and it is slowly being blended in as just another day.

Our tongues are sharper than our faith, our hearts harder than our struggles.

Instead of drawing others closer to Christ, we’re driving them further into a crisis.
So much pride, hate and jealousy filling the pews of the church, where is the love, compassion and forgiveness?

Church isn’t about showing our face for others, it’s about sharing and strengthening our faith in Christ. It’s about carrying our burdens to the cross, not carrying out our grudges with one another.

Let’s band together and lift our hands up for the Lord, not raise our hands against eachother.

Fight the good fight with faith, not the fist fight with flesh.

The difference.

29101661_10211502168651730_2852245445780963328_oYesterday I was feeling really unworthy of sharing my journey and God’s word after feeling overwhelmed with my daily struggles as a mother and also reading and hearing others negative opinions of my blog.

Although I’m not usually one to care about what people think of me, some times their words can weigh heavy on my mind and sit still on my conscience.

So while having these thoughts of giving up on my blog and deleting my page yesterday, I opened up my bible today, and this fell out.

Some times I pray for things that I want, but they’re not necessarily what I need.

Some times my prayers are automatic and memorized and not meaningful and alive.

This woke me up today!

I dropped this bookmark but this bookmark picked me up!!!

And to those negative people out there, thank you for bringing me to this point of my journey, God bless ❤🙏

Purpose.

I asked myself : “What’s the purpose of my page? what makes it better than the rest?”

I answered : “Who said I was trying to be better than the rest? Why can’t we all be the best?

Why does everything in life have to be a game, where there are winners and losers?

I’m all about elevation, celebration and salvation.

My purpose is to kill satan’s lies and hate with God’s truth and love. I don’t care about likes and follows. I care that someone believes in being saved by the grace of God and smiling at the words of my post, without me trying to do the most.

I want to be the voice of the unheard, the overlooked, the unappreciated.

I want to create a space for Christian women to uplift eachother and share the amazing things God is doing in their lives.

That is my truth, my whole truth and nothing but the truth 🌻

Success.

We all have different versions of success.

You can’t tell me that I’m not successful because I haven’t completed the list of things that makes someone successful in your eyes.

I don’t need to put anyone down to get to the top, cause I’m not trying to head that way.

I’m not the kind of person that wants to be above anyone, or on top of the world.

God knows my heart.

I just want to help anyone that is struggling alone, hurting inside, experienced pain like me, shame like me, been played on like games like me.

Happiness and success means something different to everyone.

Money isn’t success to me.
Big house or heaps of cars is not success to me.

If you have it all and keep it all to yourself, that is not success to me.

Greed is killing our world.
Hate is burning our love and judgement is bruising our peace.

Jesus is my focus, heaven is my goal ❤

Be the teacher, not the judge.

I’m not a fan of the saying “there’s always two sides to every story”. As if to say “once I hear both sides then I can make up my mind on whose side I’m on or who was right and who is wrong?” but who are we to make such judgements?

“He who is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone at her” – John 8:7.

I no longer want to go around making people feel guilty for their wrongs because they probably already feel bad enough as it is. Lord knows I do when I FINALLY realise and accept that I am. Sometimes the guilt can eat you alive and you feel so isolated and alone. Your thoughts become toxic, your enviornment is polluted and your life starts to deteriorate. I know, because I’ve been there. But I can tell you with 100% certainty that without God placing the right people around me, those who know Jesus and are forgiving, understanding and compassionate through my tears and shame, I probably wouldn’t be here to share this journey with you all.

So I ask you my sisters and brothers to be be slow to anger, and quick to help. If they don’t want your help then just pray for their soul that one day Jesus will become their goal. Lead by your actions, not by your words. We can’t embrace others when our fingers are pointing at them with shame, we got to release the stones in our hands for we are all guilty in the eyes of Jehovah.

What’s the point of being right about a person who has nothing left? who has no one to turn to. Be a helping hand, not a pointing finger!

Follow your passion, not the praise.

I tend to let the applause from people get in the way of why started this page in the first place. I told myself from the start, whether I inspire 1 person or 100, I’ll continue on with my journey. But some days I feel like I’m doing something wrong when I don’t get as many likes or lose followers and people message me negative things about my page or myself, but after speaking with my little sister this morning, she inspired this quote by telling me to “Follow my passion and not the praise”.

That hit home for me this morning. That I’ve been allowing the naysayers and the soul slayers deter me from sharing the work God is doing in my life. I’ve also let my pride and vanity hinder my growth by some times making it about myself and not about God.

So I wanted to share a little message of encouragement to anyone that has started a new journey, on a mission, or just unsure where to start, to remember that we “can do all things through Christ who strengthens us” (Philippians 4:13) and no matter what, let that praise go to God. Let your story be for His glory. “For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself.” (Galatians 6:3). We are nothing without God. ❤🙌

Making Christianity, my reality.


“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” – Romans 12:2.


When I first started this journey, I was nervous about sharing God’s word and the work He has done in my life. I don’t know the bible off by heart or even considered intelligent to my peers, all I know is what God has done for me and my life experiences. So I have my days where I feel unworthy, I sometimes worry about what has been said about me or how others perceive me, but the more I get to know Jesus and read the bible, I realize it’s not about pleasing others, it’s not even about me. It’s about God’s will and what He has planned for my life.

For awhile now I’ve been trying to get into a habit of starting and ending my days with Christ. It doesn’t always happen and every day isn’t perfect, but every day is a chance to progress and start over. So I like to start my mornings with a prayer, I try to read scriptures in my down time, watch sermons and podcast online before I go to bed and end my day with a prayer.

I can’t tell you how much my life has changed since I’ve started devoting my thoughts and time on Jesus and His promise! He has lifted a lot of burdens and guilt I carried around with shame and worry for so long, things that were holding me back from reaching my true potential, being the best version of myself. I’m so happy to say that God is faithful and true. I’m not loving him because my life is perfect, but because his love is perfect. It’s real and He’s real. Everybody’s saying God is dead yet my spirits being fed, my soul is being nourished and my heart is being blessed.

I’m not worried about the non- believers and the haters, I’m here to share the work God is doing in my life and with my life. I want to inspire others to start their own journeys and to slowly make steps to making Christianity, their reality.

A family that Prays together, Slays together.

“Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.” – Ephesians 6:4.


My sister celebrated her 30th birthday yesterday, which also means the celebration of my parents 30th wedding anniversary.

As I sit here today and reflect on the life my parents have built and the battles they’ve fought together, I praise God for the blessing that is family, and for blessing me with parents who stayed together, prayed together and slayed together.

2 parents and 6 children make up our family. We grew up poor. Our parents sacrificed so much to make sure we didn’t have to struggle growing up and to be honest, I didn’t even know we were poor until I got into high school.

I remember having to wake up early hours of the morning and getting dropped off to my grandmother’s house as a kid, so both mum and dad could go to work. I also remember, and I’ll never forget, that no matter how tired they were, they always made time to get together in our lounge either at nena’s house, or at home before we slept, to sing songs of praise, recite bible verses and pray together as a family and I’m so happy to say, that it still happens in our home today.

30 years later, God has seen their hard work, heard their prayers and continues to bless us kids, their heirs.

My siblings and I aren’t known to be “successful” in the eyes of society or the eyes of those around us, but we are truly blessed through the eyes of our Lord, who has heard our cries and seen our tears. Who continues to guide us through our fears, so our stories can be told as blessings to our childrens ears.

I’m so grateful and fortunate to know that it doesn’t matter if we’re fighting amongst each other, we always stand together against others. No matter the bruising or pain we bring to our parents feet, they always pick it up and carry our burdens with us, disappointed but unashamed. For their love comes from a place of acceptance and understanding, that we are weak but they are strong in faith and wisdom. Wisdom to teach us to learn from their mistakes, and to know that everything in this world is temporary but God is everlasting. So no matter where we are in life to never forget, that God comes first. We can have all the money and status in the world, but if we don’t have Jesus in our lives, we have nothing.

They always remind us that friends come and go, but family is forever. We have to stick together, because the devil will always try to test us, but if we have faith and believe in our hearts that Jesus Christ is our savior, we won’t have anything to worry about. For Jesus walks ahead of us, God watches our back for us and His Holy Spirit is within us.

Happy 30 years of love, courage and perseverance Solomona and Aotea Tyrell ❤🙏.

Love you always,

 

– A. M. TYRELL.

 

 

 

 

She’s royal.

“Now if we are children, then we are heirs – heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.” – Romans 8:17.


I truly believe, every women that walks on this earth, should be treated like a queen. Whether you’re my family member, my friend, my enemy or a stranger, I genuinely feel we all deserve love, appreciation and respect from those around us, but unfortunately that’s not how this world operates.

Sadly there are still men (and women) out there who continue to abuse us, mistreat us, deceive us and never believe in us. Therefore creating doubt, insecurities, bitterness, and many other weaknesses of the mind and bruising of the soul.

But what I want you all to know is, you are the daughter of the most High!

Whether you believe in Him or not, we are part of one body, we belong to His royal family. We don’t need confirmation or validation from any man or women to know that we are royal. For our Heavenly Father Jehovah, is the King of all kings. He is the ruler of earth and the creator of mankind. He reigns over all nations and sits on His holy throne, waiting for His children to return home, from doing His work here on earth.

Jesus said, “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.”  –John 14:1-2

There is a place for you in the Kingdom of Heaven! We only need to believe and receive that Jesus Christ is our Lord and savior. Whatever you’re going through, use your story to give God all the glory. So whenever life gets you down, let our Father hold you up! When people knock you down, let your sisters fix your crown. We are in this together!

We are a family and we are royal.

We are daughters of the most high, sisters through Christ and queens in real life.

You my sister, are royal!

Friends. How many of us have them?

I’m not going to say I’ve never said anything bad behind anyones back before, because that would be a lie. But what I will say is, I won’t let anyone say anything bad about my friend, behind their back.

I consider myself a loyal friend so I don’t really like making any “in between” friends. If I’m not comfortable to share how I feel with you, then I can’t keep it real with you. And if I can’t keep it real with you, are we really friends?

Ain’t nobody got time to kick it with mediocre friends who are only down for a good time, not a long time.

I’ve been let down by people I considered “friends” before, who are always so quick to tell me everything so and so said about me, yet they’re slow to mention they said nothing in my defence.

I had to cut those people out of my life, but I didn’t use a knife 😉 I asked The One who paid the price, to forgive anyone that brings me strife and if they’re meant to be in my life, teach me to be obedient to your teachings, through my prayers and your sound advice 😊🙌
