HOPE when YOU are HOPEless.

Hope when you are feeling hopeless.
I think  I can say we all have been in situations where there seems to be no hope. We don’t have the strength to go on. We feel like giving up.
Have you ever hear the voice saying still have hope even when you are feeling hopeless.
That’s the voice of our Lord say to me keep on believing in me when you don’t see a way out.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and he will make a way.
Sometimes we are being tested like Job. There is no reason for what we face; we May not understand why. we are faithful Christians yet still we lost everything and our faith comes into question by friends, relatives and church members. We sometimes question God why. But like Job the lesson we should learn is don’t asked why but In everything trust God. Sometimes in our asking or question God we lost sight of what is important or we sin against God
Remember “Naked we come into this world and naked we shall return.”
“Our treasure are not stored on earth where the elements can destroy them but our treasures are store in heaven where the elements cannot destroy them.” 
Sometimes we can lose sight of the most important things ” to seek his Kingdom and His righteousness and He will take care of our earthly needs and wants.”
No matter trials we face, we must remain hopeful even when we are feeling hopeless. Be patient like Job. Talk to God and he will respond.
Sometimes He is preparing us for great works. 
Once I was about to asked God “why me?” But I  answered myself “why not me.” 
Instead I pleaded “strength me Lord.”
Be bless.

What VICTORY in JESUS is…..

What VICTORY in JESUS looks like…..
Victory in Jesus is like sunshine after a stormy night.
Victory in Jesus is something to hang onto when you feel like you are drowning in problems.
Victory in Jesus is that safe place you find while the storm around you wages.
Victory in Jesus is while the battle is being fought you and thanking God for victory.
Its knowing the battle is won while still fighting.
Its knowing the battle is won before you even start fighting.
I am about to go into a meeting that I know will be difficult and challenging but I am proclaiming victory before I even go in.
The battle is not mine but the Lords. But I will celebrate the victory.
My anchor holds not in my strength but in My Lord and saviour.
I know in whom I believeth. So I fight in victory not for victory.
Thats gives me all the confidence I need to go into the meeting; not confidence in self but confidence in Jesus.
When I am challenge, I remember David and Psalm 100. ” Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies. So I don’t worry about my enemies they cant hurt me. My big brother Jesus all ready tpld me in Matthew 28:18…. “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.”
We are joint heirs with Christ; so as He is so are we. We have power and authority to speak over our lives and situations. The devil has as much power as we give him because he is already defeated. God gave us the victory when He overcome death. The wages of sin is death. And since we are no longer slaves to sin. The devil has no power over our lives. We are royal priest. Prince and princess. He said in Romans, “And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.”
Let us BELIEVE and take the POWER thats have been given to US.
Let us speak over our lives, our families, our friends, our communities, neighborhoods, our countries and the world at large. Let us speak health, prosperity, love, unity etc.
We have the royal banners lets fly them high. Let us take the charge as Jesus gave us power to in Matthew 28:19: “Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.”
That my brothers and sisters in Christ is victory in Jesus; using the POWER and AUTHORITY given to us.
Grace and Faith

Have Faith when….. #Gracetruthandfaith

cropped-fb_img_15081123658191064197614.jpgGod always come through for you.
I started a new job in September and I wasn’t  paid  until today. I had borrowed some money in September as I expected to get pay in October month end if not September.
The person wasn’t asking for the money or anything but I  know there were plans made for the money in December so I wanted to return what I had borrowed.
Base on the conversation I was having with the person in charge, I  didn’t expect any payment for this month. So sure I wasn’t getting pay. I didn’t check my account. I was so surprise today when I got it.
It could only be God.
He may not come when you call but he is always on time.
He is a great God he is a marvelous saviour. He maybe three months later than I expected but He is always on time. I  tell you  he is beyond great, He is indescribable. Thats how great He is.
I tell as I was here about to right this blog. The person called with a situation and needed the money.
I was able to say ‘I got pay.’ Who could it be but my abba father. My big brother Jesus.
  1. I  didn’t expect it. I gave up on getting it this month because some important documents are still outstanding but when you serve the true and living God. Documents or documents not, if you must get pay you will get it. He is that good. He  can do exceeding above all we ask or expect. As David says Psalm 34:6″ In my desperation I prayed, and the LORD listened;he saved me from all my troubles.”
He heard me and delivery me just in time.
I have learn just to let go and let God. Dont work dont fret. “Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?” When I rest I rest in the promise of Jesus.  I know I can rest in his promise and he will do for me what he did for Joseph. Taking care of all my needs. In the story of Joseph; I never read where he was worried or concern. I  read where he was a success while he was still a slave. How was he a sucess and a slave you might ask. Answer: God was with him.
How do you become a sucess. Let go and let God.
He is a God who never fails. Trust him and he will take you from prison to the place;
to the land flowing with milk and honey; through the wagging waters.
Have faith when you are being sold as a slave, He says they will bow down to you;
Have faith when you are being throwing in the lions den, He will close their mouth;
Have faith when you are standing in the fiery furnace, He is standing beside you;
Have faith when you are being stone to death, He is giving you a standing ovation;
Have faith when you are hungry and the house is empty; He is your shepherd and He fed five thousand with two fishes and five loaves.
Have faith when your bank book is empty and your bills are due, He paid His bills from the mouth of a fish.
Have faith when society rejects you, He made the woman of Samaria an evangelist.
Have faith when you spend all your money, all hope is gone and you are ready to die, He heals the woman with the issue of blood. Have faith when you face the giants in society that everyone is afraid of, all He gave David was a slingshot.
Have faith when you have committed every sin and you think there is no hope, Paul wrote most of the New Testament.
Have faith when you think you are not worthy,  neither am I or was Noah, Moses, Daniel, Paul, Peter,  Abraham, Saul, David your pastor or anyone for that matter. But its not about you or I. I am the righteousness of God through Jesus Christ and so are you.

Why I blog

I blog to express myself. I blog to share with the world the blessings of having a relationship with Jesus. I blog to encourage others about God’s mercy. I blog to say God is real.  It is my way of sharing my testimony about the goodness of Jesus and what He has done for me.

I love to write, I love to talk about my saviour Jesus Christ  so I combine both my passion into a blog.  My dream for my blog is that everyone who reads it will be inspired and motivated to be the best person they can be and it will draw people closer to the saviour.

My blog is all about  Jesus and how great He is. I want the world to know all the great things He has done in my life.

Love God and live Good.

The not so secret to success

The answer is simple.
The answer is out there for all to see.
It is a gift, there is nothing you can do to gain it.
The question is are you willing to accept it.
What is It you might ask? It is Grace; grace, grace sweet grace. The undeserved, unearned, unmerited favoured of our saviourJesus Christ.
I live my life everyday in Him. I depend on Him knowing there is nothing I can do without grace. Because I have GRACE, I know “with Christ all things are possible.”
He has brought me though some trying times. I know without God’s unmerited favour in my life. I would not be where I am. I would not be the person I am today.
Jesus is my everything, my very source of survival. My strength. My prince of peace. My sustenance. The very air I breathe.
“When friends and family forsake, He will and is there to life me up.” When I had nowhere to turn, He was there reaching for me.
When I felt pressed down and I cried out at nights my Jesus is always there to dry my tears and lift me up with His strength. Jesus carried me though all my stromy nights. He is my lifeline.
He can be your everything too. All you have to do is believe that He came, died and was resurrected. “He came and died for your sins and rose again so you can have life and have it more abundantly.”
“Know that with Him all things are possible, if you believe and have faith that even when there is no way He will make away.”
Then you are a child of the risen king.
Thats is the God I serve. The God of the impossible.
He is the key to great sucess.

How I survived 4 years without a job….

Have you ever been toss and turn over, knock down again and again pull though the grinder.

I have.

I have been battered and bruised, knock down time and time again thrown in the eye of the storm; I cried out to Jesus until my voice was gone. I prayed until I had no prayer in me. I called out until I could call no more.

Four long years I was without a job. Four long years I was tested, I was tossed but I held on to my Jesus.
I left university August 2013. The last month of my university life. There was an hiring freeze in my field of study. I wasn’t worried for the first few months. I was ok. I can relax. Its only for a few months.
I decided to start my family while I waited then my husband (then fiancee) lost his job. It was only for a few months he was to start a new job so no worries.
He never got another steady job until three years later and I didn’t gain employment for another year. I just got my first job; 2017.
How we make it though those year with a young child in this economy only God He knows. We were in the eye of the storm those years. It was rough, it was hard, it was tuff, it was difficult, it was a challenge but we didn’t give up. I never lost hope in Jesus Christ my lord and saviour. I knew He would take us though the storm. I held on to my faith in Jesus.

After all it was David who says “I have been young and now I am old and I have never seen the righteous forsaken or His seed begging bread.” I had a some difficult times but we never went to bed hungry. All our needs were met. We didn’t have everything we wanted but our needs were met. We had to sacrifice somethings but we survived.

Jesus had seen us though the storm.
Now we are on the rise, everything we touch turns to gold. We are striving, God is blessing us. We have been through our trials and test . We faced our giant and are victorious. We have conquered our enemies. I have run my race.
While going through the storm, I held on to Jesus though the water rages; He carried me safely to safety.
Jesus is my rock and my faith is build on nothing but the rock.
Four years without a job. I never had to beg or steal. I was never hungry or in need of anything. Who could it be but Jesus. A God of more than enough.

Jesus gave me my job…..

Jesus gave me my job who can take it.
When I started my job I realized that the institution wasn’t given the go ahead to hire.The person in charge of the institution however bired me. But I wasn’t getting any pay. I wasn’t a member of staff.
Yes our daddy Jesus have a way of putting us where we needed to be no matter what.
A Few weeks went by and I was still not on staff even though I was working but the sector I am in was in a hiring freeze thats why it was so difficult to get a job even when you are neeced but ” if God is for you who can be against you.”
The head of the institution told me she was working on getting me on staff. I said to her in the name of Jesus it will work out. I went to work everyday doing my job to the best of my ability.
I told myself Jesus is my provider put me here and He won’t leave me alone. He will work it out. I just humble myself and leave it in His hands. I even sight a contract not to sue the institution if I was asked to leave even though I started the work.
I didn’t ask anyone’s opinion before signing that contract. I read it and sign. while signing I reapeated to myself.; I sign in the name of the father son and holy spirit. I didn’t know what I was doing but I had faith in my protector; Jesus Christ.
I work for a month before everything was finalized. The week before it was finalized I was told I will be asked to stop working if everything wasn’t finalized at the end of the month. That very morning before going to work; I was saying to my sister if everything wasn’t finalized, I won’t be going back to work. I volunteered for one year already I am not doing it this time. My daddy never fails. Before the week finished I was on staff. Hallelujah. Who could it be but Jesus.
I am now a member of staff. I haven’t been paid yet but by the Grace of God. It will happen soon.

He healed me…

I have always had menstrual gramps. It came with my menstrual from age 12.

I felt some of the worst pained you can ever imagine. I have been through it. I tried everything I have ever heard and nothing helped. I vomited so much sometimes it felt like my triples were coming out.

I remember more than once crawling from the bathroom to my bedroom on my knees; thats how weak I got sometimes. I remembered while in university I fainted and had to be rushed to the nurses office. Thats how bad it got for me.

I had this issue until I was about to enter the world of work. I felt that I couldn’t enter the work force with this issue where I had to stayed home every month for a day or two. I needed an answer.

I needed a solution for this problem. I needed an healer. I needed to be healed.

I was volunteering at an institution but I realized I had to stop every month for a day or two and I thought to myself; it can’t work.

So I took it to the big man. I took it upstairs. I took it to the great I am that I am. I took it to Jehovah Jireh. I took it to Jesus. I began to pray. I prayed and I prayed.

I still had the problem but I continued to believe and pray. I have faith in Jesus Christ. I know he is a healer. I knew He was only who could heal me. Few months before I started working, the pain stopped.

No pained for three months. I was like yes! Thank you Jesus! I am healed but then after those three months the pain came back worst than ever.

It was worst than when it came back after I had my baby and it stopped and came back.

But I did not lose faith, I hold steadfast to the one and true God. The one who went on Calvary for me.

I know by “His stripes I am healed” and I believe that with all my heart.

The pain was back for a few months then it was gone. It has being over five months now and no pain.

In the name of Jesus it will never be back. I have been in my job for a few months now and no pain. Thank you to Jesus Christ my lord and saviour. My healer and protector.

I know what its like to cry…..

I know whats it like to cry out to Jesus and seems like He is too busy for you.
I know what’s its like to be wondering if there is a God.
I know whats it like to wonder if you aren’t good enough to hear from Him.
I know whats its like to be wondering if my problem isn’t big enough or important enough to get Jesus attention.
I know we wonder sometimes.
I am here to tell you that even before you though of crying out to Jesus Christ our saviour for help; He provided the solution.
It was there for you.
But you didnt have the patient to wait for him to fix it.
But you were to busy trying to fix.
But while you were crying out you still had doubt.
Yes; sometimes things happen.
And God uses it to teach us life lessons, make us stronger and draw us closer to him.
Yes, Jesus uses the plots of the devil to fulfil his plans for us.
Yez Jesus is God and He is always fighting for you.
Remember this: no matter you are going though; The lord our saviour will never leave or forsake you.
Sometimes Jesus just want us to enter into His rest. Deu 3:16 “…he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
He did say in Matt. 11:28 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
Yes, you can find your rest in Jesus.

In the presence of God

If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

1 John 1:6‭-‬7 NIV‬‬l‬‬‬‬

Once you are in the presence of the Lord there must be a light because he is the light.

When we fellowship with Jesus, there is a dialogue between both parties. We are in constant communication not just physically but spiritual. We communicate to our saviour though reading of his word, listen anointed music, praying or having a conversation with Him(he does reply).

Once we are in the presence of the Lord we are surrounded by the light and darkness has no dwelling where light is. Yes we will sin as John says verses 8…. but he took our sin so we could become His righteous.
John who was there and witnessed the glory of Jesus and loved the to be wherever was. He called himself the one whom Jesus loved. He recognized his fault’s and know the love of God is the only reason he could be in the presence of Jesus. John knew how perfect Jesus is. Here realized it’s not his worth.It’s all about Jesus worth. Jehovah isn’t looking on your imperfect but He is looking at His son perfection.
When you are in the presence of The Light don’t worry about your imperfection(physical eyes) but look at how perfect(spiritual eyes) He has made you and I in his imagine.
John was one disciple who loved to be in the presence of the lord. He loved the light he was always leaning on Jesus. He knew who Jesus is; He didn’t fully understand but he knew he was a witness to something great. You see it in his writing. He never called himself by his name.
He knew its not about him but whose presence he was in. Peter went in first; then John went inside he looked at the cloths there and he believed. Mary Madeline and Peter saw the same thingsHe did but the bible didn’t say they believed but as John saw he believed. Why; because his name means Grace in Hebrews. Peter names means Rock. Grace and the Rock went set out together, grace reached first and dwell where the lord was; the rock went in and didn’t believe but grace came in after and knew. The saviour has risen.
