The desire to change my life!

Image
Isaiah 54: 2 Berean Study Bible
“Enlarge the site of your tent, stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, do not hold back.  Lengthen your ropes and drive your stakes deep.”
 It is my heart's desire to become more and more like Jesus. The desire to grow and mature as a Christian woman is full in my heart. The problem I find is there are times that I resist the urge to change. I have read that you cannot change without a little resistance. The question is how badly do I want to change?
I believe that I have changed over the years and I think I am what I want to be right now. The problem is I am never satisfied with myself.
The past eight years I have been adjusting my attitude. I have been persevering, and it has taken a lot of energy on my side.
Focusing my attention on change the past couple of years took a lot of energy. I still haven't changed.
Reading Isaiah 54 verse 2 "enlarge the site of your tent, stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, do not hold back. Lengthen…

You foreordained me.

Jeremiah 1: 7-8 NLT “Go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you.  And don’t be afraid of the people, for I will be with you.”
I have been worried about my purpose in life and if I have been doing what I’m supposed to be doing.  I then realized if God didn’t want me in a certain place things change and I would move on. I realized that I must “not cast away my confidence, which has great rewards.” Hebrew 10 verse 35.  I believe that God knows me by my name.  I also believe that God knows me when I was in my mother’s womb.  God set me apart and that is why I don’t always fit in.
If I think about it God knows everything about me, my past and my present and my future. My days are scheduled and God’s in control. I know that I am different because God has sanctified me and set me apart. That is why I don’t fit in sometimes and I feel like I don’t belong.
God has foreordained me and He has a plan for my life. I don’t what the future holds for me but I do believe God knows and is moving th…

Mandela day

Mandela Day is being celebrated here in South Africa today. Our company has challenged their workers to contribute cash, clothing, blankets, food and books to the needy.

We all went to different locations to distribute the goods and help the people. My heart almost broke when I saw the conditions these people are living in. The poverty and hardships are unspeakable.

God has blessed so many people's lives today, with gifts from our company.  The people I work with are wonderful and I am so impressed with their generosity.

We just wish we could have given more.

God bless the people.



Believing God is changing my life!

Romans 8: 28 ESV
“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good.”
Have you ever wanted to go back into the past and change things?  You know you may have done something that you wish you could change today? It's not going to happen, I know. The fact of the matter is its over and done with the only way is moving forward. I love King David he was a man after God's own heart. When I look at his life; I know he made some big mistakes. He was an adulterer and a murder too.
The one thing that does encourage me about King David is the fact that he loved God. He wrote most of the Psalms.  My soul is lifted up in reading Psalms.
I realise God chose me and I am where I am for a reason. My journey is up and down. I know people stand in judgement and look down on me. I know they have made up their minds about me. I also know God has given me a second chance.
My hope is in God, and I believe whatever; failures I had will change into victories.
I believe God can bring …

Fear can paralyse you!

Image
Psalm 56: 3 – 4 AMP “When I am afraid, I will put my trust and faith in You. In God, whose word I praise; In God, I have put my trust; I shall not fear. What can mere man do to me?”
My emotional intelligence isn't quite up to standard according to me. I am not someone that is fearful, but I have come to realise that I am anxious.  My nerves feel drained.  I felt everything is crushing me. 
It's like an axe hovering over my head. I am just waiting for something to come crashing down on me. I cannot put my finger on it, but I still have this dread feeling. I need to place my trust in God and yet I seem to miss the point. Within hours I am struggling with a lower backache.  It feels like my legs are incapable of moving.  I have allowed fear to infiltrate my life again, forgetting God is in control.
I know that my life is in God's hands and that everything will work out just fine. I am anxious about my future and what it holds.  I don't know why I feel this way. I wish I coul…
