God please work out the best plan for my life.

Zechariah 3: 10 “In that day each of you will invite his neighbor to sit under his vine and fig tree.”
God, please work out the best plan for my own life, I read this message and I want to be able to invite my neighbor to sit under my vine and fig tree.  I need Your unconditional favor and love for me.  I don’t see this happing in my life right now, but Lord God I am going to trust and believe that Your word will not return to You voided.
Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.  Lord, I am thanking You for working out the good and best plan for my life.  Yes, I am trusting in You Lord unconditionally.  Lord, please help me keep a guard on my mouth and keep my mind focused on You Lord.
Help me to stay focused on You and teach me to be patient and look to You for the guidance.  Don’t allow me to fall and not get up again.  Please help me.

Clement of Alexandria said “All our life is a celebration for us … God is always everywhere.”  I am believing You Abba Father to he…

Cake diary: Spider-man Cake

Oh yippy, I am done with this cake, it was great fun, 2 tiers, marble cake, I am sure they are going to love it.  Enjoy!!!


1 Samuel 1: 15 The Message
… The only thing I’ve been pouring out is my heart, pouring it out to God.”
This morning in my quiet time I was reading 1 Samuel chapter one in the Message and my heart was broken as I read how Peninnah had tread, Hannah.  I could feel Hannah’s pain when she went into the sanctuary to pray and ask the GOD-of-the-Angel-Armies to bless her with a child.  Eli was watching her closely and assumed that Hannah had been drinking and that she was drunk.  He even approached her and rebuked her for her drunken behavior.
At that moment my heart broke, because of her pain she was crying and she explained to Eli that it was because she had been so desperate and without a resource that she couldn’t hold back her tears and spoke honestly with GOD.
Eli listened to her and when she left he said “Go in peace.  And may God of Israel give you what you have asked of Him.”
No one knows what I am facing and today I feel like Hannah, I feel a little neglected and it seems as if Go…

Cake Diary: Cream Cake Baked on Monday

For Tumi at Hendrina
Nkateko's 10th Birthday

Happy Birthday Nkateko may the Lord bless you richly today!

This Marble cake is 7cm in height and 30cm by 30cm, I used 500g of butter and 1.5 kg of icing sugar to cover this cake inside and out.

It was great fun baking for Tumi, I hope they enjoy the cake.


Proverbs 2: 7 – 10 ESV
“he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity, guarding the paths of justice and watching over the way of his saints.  Then you will understand righteousness and justice and equity, every good path; for wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul;”
Something I strive for in my life is being able to do the right thing all the time, for instance, I was baking a cake for someone and the cake just didn’t seem good enough.  The kids thought it was fine and leave it be.  I did not feel happy and decided to re-bake the cake.  No one would be the wiser but I knew the cake wasn’t up to scratch and I wanted it to be just right.
The point is we need to watch our ways; integrity is something we do every day.  If you are being watched you do your best and when no one is around you sit doing nothing?  No, I don’t do that, it frustrates me when people think I don’t see what they are doing. 
I pray ea…

God forgave me my sin

I believe with all my heart, body, soul and mind that the Lord my God of Israel has forgiven me all my sins.  According to His word in 1 John 1 verse 9 "If [I] we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness."  Now God sees me as a completely new person.  I am clean, washed with pure water; whatever I may have done is forgotten and put away according to Psalms 103 vers 12 "as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed [my] our transgressions from [me] us."  Based on all of the above I take the Apostle Paul at his word as he said in Romans 8 verse 1 "Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,"

Thank You Abba Father, I am Your child and I will embrace Your word in my own life.  I am a new creating and You bought me with the precious blood of Your only begotten Son the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth.  I am a Child of the Living God of Lights.  In the…

God’s Kingdom

Proverbs 26: 12 “Do you see a man who is wise in his own eyes?  There is more hope for a fool than for him.”
Proverbs 29: 7 “The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern.” 
I wonder if you have met anybody who believes they “know it all?”  You know while you are speaking to this person, they will have all the answers.  You will not be able to get two words in edgewise because they are so well versed.  They are probably one of the most dangerous people in this world because the truth of the matter is that these people have a tiny bit of knowledge and because they read something they believe they “know it all.” 
So they only have a little information and with that they believe they have all the answers and no one can tell them anything else.  On speaking with these kinds of people the best is to rather keep quiet and nod and wave, you won’t be able to get their attention anyway.
We all know people who are struggling and going through tough times, w…

You know #God#is#awesome!

“You do the asking, and I will do the doing.”  John 14: 14
Awesome, today I came to realize God uses each one of us.  I had a strange statement on my blog post, “God does not exist.”  And then “Prove God exists.”
First off I wasn’t sure what to say, then I started with a long drawn out story, and then I realized something I can talk my head off but this person will not understand.  He doesn’t see the point and it isn’t up to me to prove that God exists.  I know God exists because I believe in Him and I have seen Him work in my own life.
On my program today I wanted to discuss a whole string of things concerning, putting God first.  But while I was still speaking to the people my mind changed.  I was listening to a song and then suddenly I heard a violin playing in the song.
Light bulb!  I spoke to the person who feels that God does not exist and I was immediately reminded to speak about my conversion to Christianity.  I was in my early twenties, and we attended a service with Pastor …

Good Morning!!!! #ABBA #FATHER


Sorry guys, this week has been hectic and I literally have been running off my feet.  I just want to ask you to please tune into my program today at 12 CAT.  I also want to share something with you.

I baked a cake and am busy decorating it, "Top Deck" inside meaning chocolate and vanilla cake.  Covered in White fondant with beautiful cake toppings.  I will put a pic up for you to see later.

Here is a question for you today:  "How am I settling for what is good when I could have what is better?"  Where do you find yourself?

Something else I am dealing with my mouth, my attitude and my way of thinking, I wish I was so forgiving as Moses was.  The Prophet Hosea gives us 3 keys to use in becoming happy

are you willing to return to God?do you love God and His commandments?are you waiting for God and do you put your faith in Him?
Wow what an awesome God we serve.  I am working on these questing and keys for my own life.  May…

Hello World! Yvette's Inspirations

Exciting news guys come and listen to my program at 8 CAT tomorrow morning, you won't be disappointed.


Book Review: The Power of Spoken Faith

Name of the Book:                                        The Power of Spoken Faith Author:                                                               Don Gossett / E.W. Kenyon Personal Quality Ration:                           5
[Remember, the Personal Quality Rating is a score that I give to the book on a scale of 0 to 5 based on my personal liking/disliking of the book.  0 is bad and 5 is great!]
Summary This is a novella on spiritual living and the writer enjoys sharing his own life experiences with the reader.  I believe the writer's aim was to help newborn Christians and other Christians to learn how to use the scripture to grow not only their faith but a spiritual relationship with the Lord Jesus.
The writer knows what he is talking about and has written the book in such a manner that the reader can utilize all of the information to the readers best advantage.  I would say this book is a must for all Christians.
Social / Historical Context
The writer is writing from his own l…

I'm like a slice of lime ;-)

I’m like a slice of lime … incredibly refreshing but not meant for the weak.
This is so cute and I tend to agree with this statement, it seems I can be more like a “slice of lime” in more ways than other.
My family understands my confidence, I am not a fearful person, I have learned to stand my “Man” when times drove me to it.  My confidence I find in the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I believe that what Mark said in chapter 11 verse 23 “[You] shall have whatsoever [you] saith.”
So hear my words I am a daughter of the Most High God, no weapons formed against me shall prosper.  My Father in heaven is watching over my life, every need is being addressed by my Lord Jesus Christ.  I stand on God’s word today, that I am His child.  Born again and bought by the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth. 
In all humility I come before my heavenly Father, Abba Father please place a guard over my thoughts, my mind, my words and my heart.  Let my words and thoughts and mind be accept…

Keep my lips away from calamity things.

I listen to people and I have notice that isn’t easy for people to stay positive and to speak positively.  Yes, we live in a world that is broken and people all around us are hurting.  The difficult part is to keep our words away from calamity things.
It is easier said than done, we need to learn to speak words of encouragement, words to help people turn their thoughts and minds away from a difficult situation to a more positive possible situation. It is your job and my job to be the person who doesn’t go around speaking about calamity things.  Sending the disastrous message further, when and if you hear about something that is disturbing don’t you go and repeat it and broadcast it to everyone.  Let it die in your presence; change the message to a positive one. “Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth; thou art taken [captive] with the words of thy mouth.” Proverbs 6: 2. 
Since we have the power over our thoughts and mind, we also have the power over each and every word that lea…

The Challenge is on.

Matthew 13: 34 “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.”
This is so true, I have come to realize that my heart is literally dry, I have truly become so negative that when I open my mouth I will speak negatively.  So for the past couple of weeks, I have literally become aware of my speech.  My words and my thoughts; I am taking my words and thoughts captive to the Lord Jesus Christ.
I know someone, this person has really got a vulgar attitude.  This person really cannot speak edifying words whatsoever.  I can see what is in their heart just by listening to their talking.  The bad thing is I believe that it will rub off on other people.  Something I also noticed is not many people like this person because of their vulgar mannerism.
Proverbs 21 verse 23 reminds us that “Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.”  Now, this is food for thought wouldn’t you say?  Yes, so in the meantime, I have made it my business to watch my thoughts, I also have …

Think before you speak.

Proverbs 25: 11 – 12 MSG“The right word at the right time is like a custom-made piece of jewelry, and a wise friend's timely reprimand is like a gold ring slipped on your finger.” As you know by now that I am struggling to keep a positive attitude and one of my main problems is that I allow my thoughts to run riot with me.  So the main focus for a couple of days on my blog will be on changing my words so that I will be able to attract the right kind of people into my own life.  Working on my vocabulary changing. I realize that God is working each day on me and I need to learn what questions to ask so that I can identify the wrong attitudes within me and bring them to God to change. The questions I am asking myself right now is “What would it take to have a positive attitude?”  Then I also need to identify “What is right about my attitude, which I am missing.”  “What is possible?  What have I not considered?”  It has never been my practice to ask any question since I was a child bu…

I tend to beat myself up often

Blows and wounds scrub away evil, and beatings purge the inmost being.”  Proverbs 20: 30
Working on my attitude and my self-esteem is probably something I do daily.  I constantly check my words, I constantly watch what I say.  My thoughts are being trained not to wonder.  It has been a process I have been going through for a couple of years now.  To my mind, I believe that I am better and that I am getting better and better.  What I really want to say I have become more visual over my thinking.
It struck me when I was reading this book on Confidence that my self-esteem is really low.  I do not consider myself better than other people.  I feel that I should shrink back out of the limelight and wait for people to do their own thing.  Then I do enjoy writing and it gives me the ability to express myself but not enough because I live in the real world.
My biggest critic is myself.  I focus on attitudes and words that I feel are wrong and I constantly fight with myself to change them int…

Identify in what kind of relationship you are in.

Genesis 2: 22 Then the Lord God made a woman … and be brought her to the man.
Firstly, Let me give praise and honor to the Lord God of Israel my Abba Father, King of Kings, Lord of Lords.   Based on this verse I believe that God made a woman to be a “helper to her husband.”  When you get involved with people it is important to check the relationship and people you are getting involved with. 
According to 1 Corinthians 12 verse 10 “… the ability to distinguish between spirits.”  Is one of the gifts God has given us, and regarding distinguishing between spirits I believe it is imperative to check your mate.  Love is blind but the neighbors aren’t. 
Some interesting traits to be aware of are listed as follows: people with a negative spirit, they tend to draw you down.  You should beware of a person with a controlling spirit or vindictive spirit someone whom feels hurt and wants to get back at people or the world; and someone who shows resentment often.  This negative type of person is …

Reminder! If you are able do listen

Hey Guys tomorrow I will be on the radio from 12h00pm to 13h00pm CAT (Central African Time).  I hope you will come and listen, I will be doing my regular book review, this week I will be reviewing Woman to Woman from Joyce Meyer and I am going tell you of two new releases I have spotted on the net.

Also some interesting things I find out.

So please please please  come and listen to me ;-)  thank you ;-)

It’s been a while since I have shared my testimony!

Philemon 1: 6 “The communication of thy faith [will] become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in Christ Jesus.”
Picture this a young woman in 1989 with short dark brown hair and green eyes, walking into an Apostolic Faith Mission Church.  In September of 1989, I was 25 years of age and had two children.  My son Jacques aged 7 and my daughter Odette aged 4.  I was a strict mommy and had thought I had high values.  When we sat in the pews I heard the Lord God speaking to me directly through the pastor.  Sorry, I forget his name, he loved to play the violin which was so beautiful.
God was speaking to me directly that when the pastor made the altar call I had to hold myself down with both my hands so that I would not get up and walk to the front of the church.  The next day I was watching TV with the kids and friends came along to see what we through of the service.  I told them what I experience and my friend then said: “Yvette, that was the Lord God speaking to …

What do you think would make a great marriage?

Reading Hebrew 13 verses 1 to 4 in the Message “Stay on good terms with each other, held together by love.  Be ready for a meal or a bed when it’s needed.  Why some have extended hospitality to angels without ever knowing it! Regard prisoners as if you were in prison with them.  Look on victims of abuse as if what happened to them had happened to you.  Honor marriage, and guard the sacredness of sexual intimacy between wife and husband.  God draws a firm line against casual and illicit sex.”
1)God said “Honor marriage”  I believe this means we must stay faithful to each other as a couple.  No one, not mother, father, sister, brother or children should interfere with the marriage between two people. 2)My body is a temple of God, which means I need to take good care of my body and not fill it up with loads of junk. 3)Husband and family always the priority.  Then the rest.  Never allow work to override your responsibilities as a husband or wife.  Don’t make your family strangers. 4)Clea…

Coming into agreement with Abba Father

Amos 3:3 (AMPC) Do two walk together except they make an appointment and have agreed?
As I sit in my study today it is my heart’s desire to come into agreement with my Father God, in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
I am going to use these affirmations today and going forward to create my life and abundance so that I too may be a blessing to my Church and people who are in need.
I affirm with my mouth and believe in my heart that  “I can do all things through Christ Jesus of Nazareth which strengthens me.”  Philippians 4 verse 13.  I also believe an confess that “my God will supply all [my] needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus of Nazareth.”  Philippians 4 verse 19.  I further confess and believe that God did not give me a spirit of fear, but of power and of love, and of a sound mind.”  2 Timothy 1 verse 7.
I confess and believe that “God has dealt with every man the measure of faith.” Romans 12 verse 3.  I also believe and confess with my mouth that “the Lord is…

Why are you Grumbling! Stop it!

Just thinking about this past couple of weeks I do believe I have been grumbling all the time, I am like a growling dog.  In Exodus 15 verse 24 we read “so the people grumbled against Moses, saying, “What are we to drink?””  Because life this past couple of weeks have really been trying and difficult I have been walking around with a stiff neck, and a headache too. You know those feelings of abandonment, being left out and disappointed and feelings of uselessness and not being able to stay focused or even function properly?  These are all that I have been dealing with the past couple of days.  Then this morning I am preparing for a Sunday School lesson and it struck me that I should stop my grumbling immediately. Looking back now made me realize that I have so much to be grateful of and yes I find myself in an almost impossible situation but why should I allow all these negative feelings to overwhelm and take hold of my life. The truth of the matter is I am not in control over everyt…

Building my own Website - hair raising experience ;-)

This is truly a challenge, I have managed to put social media buttons in on one of the pages, and I also have managed to put a contact me email shot in as well.  There is still a number of nitty gritty goodies I need to do and learn.
The main reason for building my Website is to promote my upcoming book which is going to be published this year.  I am looking forward to this because it is my first book that will be published.  I cannot wait.
My Book is a Daily Devotional for 365 days of the year.  I anticipate it will be ready very soon.  Once I have the book published I will, of course, let you know.

It has been a wonderful experience and I am so grateful and happy that the Lord my God has allowed this to happen.  I believe my time is now and I want to grab it with both my hands.  You know we all face difficulties and life can come with some serious curve balls, but I am so grateful that the Lord is here for me.

Financial Increase

2 Corinthians 9: 10 CEV “He will increase what you have.”
Sometimes we have difficulties that we just can do nothing about, for instance, I am jobless currently and I have no resources to assist my husband.  I feel helpless and sometimes I feel so guilty because he needs to carry the burned of looking after me too. 
I was thinking about this verse and you know God is faithful and He is dependable and I believe that He will provide when it’s the right time.  My thoughts on this matter is that God is telling us that He will increase what we have.  I also believe that God know our hearts and minds, He also knows what we can handle at what time in our lives.
The thing is we need to come into agreement with God’s word and stay focused on what we know He is capable of doing in our lives.  The main focus is to also get God involved with our finances, I am trusting God to do something miraculously in my life.
Yes, I am out of a job but hey that doesn’t stop God of helping.  I sometimes wonder…
