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 ❤

Focus on your own business.

These days, it’s so easy to fall into the trap of comparing lives and becoming envious of what others have when you have platforms like social media, where you get to see stories on snapchat or instagram, holiday pics on facebook and for some reason, that reminded me of window shopping.

Let’s just say we’re all business owners.

One day, you come across a fancy looking shop.

From the outside looking in, it looks very appealing and clean. Perfect in every way, no mess, no stress, every mannequin dressed to impress.

You walk into their store and straight away, you’re attracted to all the great vibes and signs they’re giving you.

“CLEARANCE SALE”, “NOTHING OVER $10” and “BUY 1 GET 1 FREE”.

You start feeling down and sad thinking about your own business, it’s not as fancy and it’s not in good condition or located in a nice area like this one.

So you start investing so much of your thoughts and energy wanting everything in that store for your own shop.

You’re almost sold on everything you see, but the closer you get to read the signs it says:

“CLEARANCE SALE… red marked items only.”

“NOTHING OVER $10….. faulty or damaged.”

“BUY 1 GET 1 FREE….only on selected styles.”

You then realise, this shop isn’t what you expected or what they made it out to be. You wished you had more faith in your own shop with all the doubt and shame you started thinking, when the fancy shop had problems just like yours, they were just better at disguising it.

Moral of the story is – Everything isn’t what it seems.

Some people like to advertise and promote all the great things that are happening in their lives, but put all the things that they’re not so confident about or proud of in small print, where it’s hardly noticable.

The truth is, all our shops could do with a bit of work, but instead of competing with eachother, we need to work together and not be afraid to open up to others and learn from eachothers mistakes.

Every shop is unique and we all have different things to offer, so don’t worry about what others have or do with their business, focus on your own and work on what you can bring to the market.

And remember “Nothing comes to sleepers, but a dream” – George Veikoso

If you want a fancy shop, work hard for it.
If you’re content with what you have, thank God for it.

God doesn’t want us to impress eachother, He wants us to love one another and be more like Jesus.

So don’t let the life your neighbour is living get you down, just focus on your own journey and keep striving for that eternal crown🙏

 

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.

Drive with a purpose.


“Christianity is a journey, not a race, God isn’t asking us to compete for 1st place. So go at your own pace, put a smile on your face and let God save you with His grace”


 

As Christians, we travel through life on a narrow road in hopes to find God at the end.

But throughout our journey, we will hit some traffic from time to time, where we will feel like we’re on a standstill, immobile. Stuck in the same spot for a long time with no progression. But that’s God’s way of testing our faith. He wants to see how faithful we are when things aren’t going our way. He wants to strengthen our souls, through our trials and tribulations and see if we can resist the temptations of giving up.

Some of us, are too busy speeding through our journey, trying to prove that we don’t drive how we use to, we drive straight past our calling. We’re no longer driving on our learners, Jesus is our instructor now, so we want to show everyone we’re full licenced Christians. But we get so caught up talking about how much our journey has changed us, we forget to pull the hand break up in our car and the car goes downhill. That’s God stepping in, giving us a warning, to slow down, be still. Are you trying to please God or others? There’s nothing wrong with sharing our changes and our love for Jesus Christ, but we have to make sure, we’re also still walking in faith, not just talking about our faith.

If you haven’t reached that narrow road yet, ask Jesus to take the wheel. Let Him drive for you, for only He knows the way, the truth and the life. No one can get to God at the end, except through Him.
