Fabricated Faith.

If you’re only praying for material things, then you must only have fabricated faith.

The more I read about Jesus, the more I admire His faith.

You not only get a lesson of how to pray, but you also will notice what He didn’t pray for.

Not once did He ask for a house or a donkey to get around on, but He did ask for DAILY bread, the daily essentials.

He didn’t pray for a better tomorrow, or dwell over yesterday.

He knew His Father will provide what He needed day by day, but the prayer was important to communicate with God and to build that relationship with His Father.

We praise Him, give thanks and ask for forgiveness for ourselves and for others.

I’ve been learning to pray for what He wants me to do with my life, while asking Him to remove anything that isn’t from Him, even if it hurts me but to give me the strength and the courage to handle whatever the outcome.

Praying is like exercising.

We need it in our lives to help sustain our health mentally, physically and emotionally.

 

 

 

Treasure our elderly.

As you progress in your life, don’t forget to reflect on your actions.

Don’t forget the actions of those around you that helped you progress.

Don’t forget the sacrifice of your loved ones in your life that have helped you along the way, including Jesus.

Never forget the people that opened their hearts to help raise you and the hands that helped lift you up in prayer.

I wrote this after watching an elderly lady struggling to push her shopping cart to the supermarket on her own and it got me thinking about my nena.

While some take their parents and grandparents for granted, others are praying they still had theirs around.

Don’t forget to check in on them, even if it’s just a phone call.

As we get older, so do they.

Every day with them is a blessing so make every day with them count!

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.

 

 

 

 

Friends. How many of us have them?

textgram_1503204585


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 😊🙌

Weed your garden sister.

Christian women are like flowers in a garden trying to grow and bloom in The “Son” light. But in order for us to grow, we must remember to remove the weeds that are stopping our growth.
Weeds can be invasive and are often very noticeable, with different textures, colors and growth habits. Be careful not to let weeds get too close to you, as they can overtake your garden in a single growing season, leaving it looking sparse and unattractive.
So remember ladies – Weed your gardens and pray everyday, and you’ll grow, grow, grow.
