Child

We are lost adults

Who mourn over our

Stolen childhood

We wish to go back

Yet time refuses to redeem

Time - has a way of showing off

How quickly it can move on

Our obsolete self stands gazing

at the door of adolescent as

it walks away with our virgin hearts

Exposed before age

Though we age

The little child in us still mourns

You’re not everybody…

 Hi friends, I hope you’re not just surviving but thriving, learning, and growing.

God has been doing some great things in my life, although I can’t seem to get a grip around everything; but you know what they say… ‘When you can’t see His hand, trust His heart’ , and I believe that God’s heart concerning me is that of Good and not evil, no matter how contradictory my surrounding may be to the leading of God’s hand in my life. I’m forever grateful for the good and the seemingly bad.

Now onto today’s topic…

Take a trip down memory lane, your toddler years to be exact. It’s the school holidays, and you’re over the moon because every year during this specific period, you and your cousin meet up at your grandparents house. It’s the best time of the year for you because you don’t always see your cousin. It’s your first day at grandmas’ and she prepares your favourite breakfast (Rice porridge) with sugar and two spoons of Nido milk. After chucking down your first bowl of porridge, you ask for a second round because it’s just that good. After your indelible breakfast you head straight for the playground. Now you and your cousin have a bad habit of running in the house and stealing the Nido milk after every five second at 12 Midday, because that’s when grandma goes to visit her friend. To every story there’s a beginning and an ending. Like every day, you get up in the morning, granny makes breakfast, you ask for a second round and off you go to play.

At 12 Midday, your cousin runs into the kitchen takes her share of milk and runs back with a smile that looks like satisfaction; finally, it’s your turn, you run in the house open the cardboard and take a scoop of the milk. It tastes so good that you decide to take another scoop and before you know it your grandma is standing right behind you, you attempt to run but she grabs you by your t-shirt and yells, ‘where do you think you’re going?’ Sadly, this story ends with you standing embarrassed like a little hood rat on a leash. Grandma sits you down and questions you about stealing milk; to your defence your response is that everybody does that, your grandma stresses the fact that she caught you and not everybody…

Friends I wanna get a little personal with you. I’ve always wanted to get my nose pierced; at first, I was afraid to, but I guess that’s because my dad always threatened to cut off my nose if I ever pierced it and I didn’t want to gain a reputation of ‘the girl with no-nose’. The older I got the more I felt propelled to get a nose ring, but this time my dad’s threats weren’t exactly what was holding me back but rather an inner conflict. Recently, I discovered that it was the Holy Spirit convicting me concerning piercing my nose. My first response was that everybody is doing it. I would often argue that a nose ring doesn’t affect my Christianity or relationship with God. As time would have it, the Holy Spirit has made me understand that, yes, God is after our hearts. He further explained that my body is the temple of God, and that I’m not EVERYBODY.

This is not to say that other Believers with piercings don’t have the Holy Spirit in them; however, I would say that the investment of God in one’s life makes God stricter over that person. Meaning that God’s assignment for our lives will not allow us to engage in certain things no matter how trivial or harmless they may seem. John 14 tells us that conviction is the Holy Spirit’s Job. The Holy Spirit, I believe convicts each one of us according to the Father’s Will for our lives. Hence, what may be acceptable for the next person may be a hindrance for my advancement in getting closer to the Lord ,and may serve as a gateway for the enemy to enter and do what he’s best known for, which is to steal, kill, and destroy.

Although I don’t fully understand the reason behind my conviction about getting a nose ring, one thing is certain, I’m not like everybody and this body is not my own and they are certain things I can and can’t do. Which leads me to ask;  how many of us despite being convicted by the Holy Spirit about something, yet chose to ignore? God speaks to us through our conscious, often, we want a sign in the sky or a vision about a decision we want to make, even though the Holy spirit has already convicted us. instead of leaning in to understand ,and gain clarity about that conviction, we choose to give into the voice of defence. We want to put God at the centre of our decisions, yet we refuse to listen to the Holy spirit, who was sent to live on the inside of us to convict, guide, and remind us of the word and the ways of the Father.

In closing, I believe it’s time we start working on our false humility. God sees our heart and He’s not interested in our physical leisure, but the salvation of our soul. Half obedience is no obedience at all; and God is calling us to fully obey his commands and his opinion concerning our day-to-day decision. I had to understand that my conviction is not a punishment from God rather a guideline as to what is good and beneficial for the prospering of my soul. Your Journey with God is not like everyone else’s journey. Therefore, don’t feed on what everybody else is doing. Don’t be too swift to give into your desires, likewise, don’t shy away from questioning the root of your desires. A good friend of mine once said that God’s investment in our lives differ from person to person ;and that is all the assurance you need to adjust your life accordingly.

If you’ve made this far, I thank you. Please give this blog a star and feels free to leave a comment, I’d love to hear from you.

Remember to be kind out there🤗

Bye for now.

Hiii friends…

I know, I know… it’s been a while but I promise you not a day goes by that I don’t think of y’all or Pray for y’all! I trust that all is well🤗

Today is my BIRTHDAY and I’m so grateful for life! What a time to be alive. Of course, I come bearing gifts.

During the days leading up to my birthday, I was fortunate enough to do some introspection and come to discover certain things that I plan to change and do differently in this new Chapter of my Life. Without any delay hit the play button in the video below. 👇

Life is Hard

by Galilee

I hope that this poem has inspired you to sit down with yourself and challenge the different aspects that continue to hinder you from being All that God has called you to be. Lately, I’ve discovered that I can literally influence the out come of my life by what I say and so I’ve gone on a quest of relearning how I speak by being more mindful of the words I utter. I’m inviting you to do the same.

And on that note, Happy Birthday to meee💞🎂

Until next time, bye for now!

Remember to be kind out there❤

Enchanted Attic

That magical moment, when you just bleed on paper instead of having to talk to someone, I believe is the best form of therapy. It’s a moment of deep reflection, there you meet the pretty and ugly side there is to you. I like to consider it to be an attic, see many claim to know a person, I say, ‘you don’t truly know a person until you’ve visited their attic’. So, this is it, welcome to my attic. This compartment fosters anxiety, self-doubt, and depression, yes I said depression. But fear not, the only reason I’m revealing this compartment is that I’m doing some thorough cleaning. After all, a house is still dirty unless you take out the trash.

Check out the poem below 💕

Bye for now.

Honestly

The Human tendency to pray for something and expect its arrival based on our terms and conditions, further exposes our false humility.

I can attest to praying for something and later complain about the packaging or duration of that blessing, but what can I say? I’m only flesh and blood. So, here’s the deal, God… Cleanse me before you Bless me!

My human mentality proceeded to forget it’s, “Let YOUR will be done”, not “our will be done.”
