The Blessed Life: Supreme Blessedness

Hello, hope you are keeping well and safe? What a privilege to be alive!

Recently I was reminded of the beauttides; Jesus’ sermon on the mountain. I thought I’d share as I was inspired and encouraged by these verses. I pray it inspires, encourages and refines you, Amen!


The beatitudes are inner teaching given to the few who deeply long to know God. More so, in this time of quarantine, it is important to take time to hear from God and let His Word refine your heart.

Have you ever asked yourself why Jesus took time out to teach the people about the beatitudes?

I believe He was offering blessings to them. Jesus was teaching them the very great, highest…of what it is to be blessed with divine favour. He is also doing the same to you today.

The dictionary defines beatitude as supreme blessedness.

Supreme Blessedness


Bible Passage: Matthew 5:1-12 KJV

Before you read, I want you to open your hands with your palms facing up. Sit for a moment in stillness and ask your heavenly Father to tell you important words you need to hear today. Tell Him that you are open to His guidance…receive it.

Now read the verses.

And seeing the multitudes, He went up into a mountain: and when He was set, His disciples came unto Him: And He opened His mouth, and taught them, saying,

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.


Take each one of the beatitudes and ponder on it. What might God be communicating to you? Listen for God to speak to you. Ask Him for help where you fall short.

Remember, He loves you so much and He is closer than your skin. He wants you to have the blessed life that only He can give.

Enjoy the supreme blessedness 🙂

I love you,

Self-Reflection Mode

“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”

Matthew 7:3-5 NIV

It has been quite a while! I have no excuse but to say I’m sorry. I just haven’t had the motivation to write. However, I’m here now and I thought I’d share some of my many experiences during this unprecedented time.

Self reflection is such a humbling process. Especially, during this time of lock-down. I have found myself doing a lot of these….more so, with the people I love and respect – my family.

One thing I’ve realised so far is this, you get what you give. People would normally reciprocate the energy you give consciously or subconsciously so watch your energy!

What kind of energy are you giving?

Like I said, I’ve had to do a lot of self reflections recently. Let’s keep it real, I can be a moody human and my energy can be very discouraging at times. My attitude, mood can come off as being passive when things generally don’t go my way. However, I expect others to understand this and cut me some slacks.

See, I’m a big fan of this outlook in life; “putting others in your shoes” and giving people the “benefit of doubt” but what you shouldn’t become is that person who constantly acts this way and no one wants to be around because the energy you give is just too toxic and draining!

Yes, it’s good to protect your energy and not let others dampen yours but the honest truth is this; people you love and respect has a big influence over you. Whether you like it or not you have that same influence over your loved ones too. It is your responsibility to watch your energy and produce what you would like to see in others.

“Vibe high and the magic around you will unfold.”

– Akilnathan Logeswaran

It is your responsibility to make people around you feel comfortable and not on the edge all the time. There is too much sadness and hurt in this world, you don’t need to add to it.
Make peace, be kind with your words and actions too. Settle misunderstanding with love and understanding.

I was reminded of 1 Corinthians 13:3-7 NIV

“If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

Love yourself enough today to sit down and do a self-reflection. It is essential to find out why you think and do some certain things. Find out the root cause of your behaviours, habits, actions etc…Then, work on becoming a better version of yourself. God wants you to improve and to be better each day, You have the Holy Spirit who will certainly help you.

“Everybody else needs mirrors to remind themselves who they are. You’re no different.”

May God shine His light on you each day. Your life is too precious!

I love you,



Plan Your Ideal 2019

Write down this vision.
Write it clearly on tablets, so that anyone who reads it may run. 

For the vision points ahead to a time I have appointed; it testifies regarding the end, and it will not lie.
Even if there is a delay, wait for it.
It is coming and will come without delay.

HABAKKUK 2:2-3 The Voice

During the last week of December, I took some few days to reflect on how the year went; In 2018 I didn’t achieve some of my goals. And for the first time, I do not regret anything instead I am encouraged to sling my shot better and focus on my aim. I am determined to press on towards the goal.

This year, I plan on pressing on towards achieving these goals and more, knowing that delay is never a denial. However, as I reflect back on how last year went I realised maybe I could have been clearer and time specific with some of my goals; by making daily/ weekly/monthly progress evaluation on them.

I generally set goals for every area in my life I want to improve and plan my year accordingly. Through the years, I have realized that writing new year plans can be quite daunting as it forces one to deal with some of the “not so great parts” of the year. However, it can also encourage you to do better in the coming year. And in fact, it forces you to select something specific and visualise your goals. The truth is you become better at achieving your goals.

This year I plan on living out God’s best for my life and to become all that He had intended and destined me to be. I will align myself with God’s will for my life. This is not the year to mess about.

And to do this I have to do things differently.
Albert Einstein once stated

“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”

So in 2019, I have decided to level up! It would require discipline, prioritisation and commitment to make these goals happen but I am ready to put in the WORK!

Proverbs 16:3 says

“Commit to the Lord whatever you do and He will establish your plans.”

Planning your ideal 2019 will require you to…

  1. Reflect and Renew constantly. It’s all about your mindset baby!
  2. Retain habits/things that are working for you already.
  3. Remove; what are things you need to let go of this year?
  4. Resolve; what is missing or lacking in your life? Then make your resolutions.
  5. Respond – Close the gap between the end result you want and where you are now with a plan. Make sure your plan is SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely)
  6. Review and Report – Find someone you are accountable to. Remember Proverbs 15:22!
  7. Be Responsible for your actions

One thing that is constant about life is that change is inevitable.

If you haven’t yet written your plans yet then what are you waiting for? The right moment? It will never come.

Instead, just DO IT! It doesn’t have to be perfect. Follow the steps above and you are good to go.

Do not procrastinate!

Educate yourself – Use resources, look for books out there that talk about your vision. Listen to podcasts, attend seminars or webinars. As for me, I want to own my business in 5 yrs so, I have purchased some books to help me become a manager, and be the best at it! Go to my READS FOR 2019.

Visualise your plans. Vision boards are great tools. Start by gathering words and images that represent your true purpose. Spend some time creating your ideas on the board. Post affirmations, quotes and inspirational words on it. Keep it neat – stay away from clutter. Simplicity is bliss! You can buy boards from Amazon and ideas from Pinterest or Google.

Prayer is the key!

By being persistent in prayer and spending some intentional time in the Word of God will help you achieve all that God has spoken over your life. In Jesus name, Amen!

WORD FOR 2019 – BECOMING

Happy New Year!
I’m so grateful for what God did last year – It was indeed a year of Freedom for me and my family.

WELCOME TO 2019

Back in December while I was asking God for a word for 2019, the Holy Spirit said BECOMING.

At first, I thought it was just me assuming or maybe because the new book from Michelle Obama inspired the word becoming or could it be that it’s the new word in right now. I was reluctant, so I leaned in closer to God for confirmation.

God confirmed this over the past few weeks as I had conversations with my friends and loved ones over the festive period which all pointed back to what God has been tiring up in my heart.

I remember a conversation I had with a good friend/sister of mine. She asked me what the word for 2019 is, so I told her that I believe God is telling me – “2019 is a year of fulfilment of everything He has written over my life when He first made me even before I was formed in my mama’s womb. God is telling me; every season I have ever gone through has been building up for this time, this new age! This is a year of becoming “the me” God has destined and purposed me to become.

This is the year for my POTENTIALS to become PURPOSE and for my PLANS to become ACTIONS!

This is the year I become LESS of ME and MORE like CHRIST

This is the year I become ROOTED in my faith and God will do miraculous things in my life. The year I become a TESTIMONY that points everyone to Christ and God’s GLORY.

This is the year I become older and full of God’s WISDOM and REVELATIONS. This is the year I become the big 30 years on this planet earth!

This is the year I become CHANNELS of BLESSINGS!

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

Jeremiah 29:11 New Living Translation (NLT)

…for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests,a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.

1 Peter 2:9 New Living Translation (NLT)

And we know that God causes everything to work togetherfor the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

Romans 8:28 New Living Translation (NLT)

What do you want to become in 2019?

by being persistent in prayer and fasting you will become all that God has spoken over your life. In Jesus name, Amen!

How To Share Your Faith [3 Simple Steps]

When you go, tell them this: ‘God’s kingdom is now very near. Heal the sick. Bring the dead back to life. Heal the people who have leprosy. And force demons out of people. I give you these powers freely, so help others freely.

Matthew 10:7-8 ERV

Now, this is a topic I try to avoid speaking on as I too struggle with sharing my faith with others.

As we all know it can be quite daunting and scary at first, paired up with fear of rejection and lack of confidence. This is often generated from a place of feeling imperfect and incompetent which stops us from standing up and sharing the gospel with others.

If like me you struggle with this concept then you are in the right place. I know it can leave you feeling extremely fearful, hesitant and overwhelmed. For many years, I know I should share my faith but talking to strangers who don’t believe in Christ (or even people I know) often evokes skepticism, fear or anger and these words induce feelings of fear and intimidation in me.

And yes even if you are an extrovert or ambivert. No one likes to come across as being pushy or disliked.

Can I share a quick story with you?

This is a story of a pastor’s daughter who was more than 20 years old and had never shared the gospel with anyone because she was afraid. On the 1st of March 2014, in her quiet time, she felt God strongly speaking to her about being Strong and Courageous. It was at His feet He met her and reminded her He is with her and has given her the spirit of Boldness just as He had given Peter and John in Acts 4:13“When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realised that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.”

It was on this day, she made a firm decision.

She went out, resolved that fear was not going to hold her back any longer. She believed God’s promise when He said…

He will personally go with her.

Deuteronomy 31:6.

That person is me. That year I surrendered all to God knowing that He Himself is with me, not His angels but God, the Father is with me as I stood boldly on the streets evangelising even with doubt. Shared my story on social media platforms knowing that I am imperfectly perfect in the love of Christ. Also, I opened up for the Holy Spirit to lead me to strangers who needed to be reminded that Jesus loves them with simple notes and a smile.


This is what the power of God can do to you. So if you are still reading this (I have a big grin on as I typed this) and have never ever shared your faith story but it is your desire to do so then you are in the right place.

You can breathe now! Relax!

 John reminded us in 14:15 ““If you love Me, obey the commandments I have given you – if you love Me, express it by winning souls for Me”

So, with that verse in mind here are some easy, simple steps I consider to be key when sharing your faith with others.

3 Simple Steps in Sharing Your Faith

AF23869D-2CA5-416A-BC90-A6DD69F5D792

1. Pray

Prayer is the key,

prayer is the master key.

Jesus started with prayer and ended with prayer. Literally!

Prayer is the key! So when fear creeps in, pray! When you feel that you are not enough or know enough, pray! Or maybe like me, you are not new to this but somehow along the way you’ve lost the passion for lost souls and you’ve lost the boldness you once had, PRAY!

We must learn how to go to God with everything we feel or think. It is important to get the inside out. When we tell God how we feel exactly in return He will speak to us through the His Word, providing us with signs and reassurance that we so are in desperate need of.

Be committed to prayer. The Bible emphasises on hearing as well as speaking. At the place of prayer, we hear from God. This is where we discern what He is saying to us. He will tell us the secret things, His vision. “And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ”Colossians 4:3

Mission and intercession go hand in hand.

Remember, Jesus started all His missions with a prayer and ended always with a prayer too.

2. Plan 

A structure is important. Preparation is even more important.

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” 
― Benjamin Franklin 

667f98ea-790e-4219-b627-1a1790722247

Even God has a plan! So before stepping out to share the good news of Christ have a plan in place. Have strategies on how to engage. Speak in context of the environment. Maybe you might want to start with things that can draw there attention, “Things they can relate with e.g. weather, etc.” or  words like “Can I tell you something that’s giving me Hope?” or “Let me tell you my story.” Just like the blind man who went everywhere telling people about what Jesus had done for him. John 9:25 “One thing I do know, I was blind but now I see!”. 

Even though this man didn’t know the bible enough, he was an expert on one topic – his own experience. He was blind and now he could see. We can do the same too. Perhaps, you once felt unloved, unaccepted and rejected before or you struggled with low self-esteem, hate, jealousy, addiction. Whatever it is,  your testimony is powerful enough for God to use. Don’t ever think your story is not as powerful or dramatic enough.

Be prepared! You can start by writing 10 things you’re thankful for. Share it on your facebook page or twitter. You can prepare by writing your story down, or record it, or practice in front of a mirror. Whatever works for you.

Get your message across effectively, remember the rule: “Don’t tell, ask!”

For instance: Jesus died on the cross for you. Do you know why He did that? Find out what the person already understands, give your own testimony and stimulate a desire in that person’s heart to say, ” I want that!”

Be creative and aggressive in a gentle way in your approach.

Don’t preach to them. Don’t pressurise them. Listen and share!

The important thing is not what you say but what the other person understands!

Think of how to address challenges; cultural differences. Use existence methods/ resources. Think of how to engage your community. Go into schools, Elderly care homes, provide free breakfast/lunch for the homeless or the less privileged that lives in your town. Invite your unsaved friends to coffee, brunch/dinner.

Evaluate if the method is working or not. Remember, there is always a way. Just go and sow the seed.

3. Go

First, Be approachable.

We don’t want anyone feeling threatened now do we?

8ff11df1-b12d-4477-83f3-9ad1bc812062

Be relaxed but determined!

Second, Smile!

Beam in the joy of the Lord. It’s contagious. This is when the seed planting starts. The conversation will usually develop naturally from here. Take an interest in people and you will get their interest!

When you’ve been set free you should want others to know so they too can be free. Why? Because you know this is a person Jesus died for too and loves dearly.

People are in search of more. They want something more than what this present world can offer them and yes we have the answer. The answer which can invade and eradicate every emptiness in people’s lives.

God wants to perform miracles through us in such a way that will blow our minds. He will do that which eyes have never seen nor heard of, ever!

However, we must become bold and give our lives away for the master’s use. God wants to use us as a vessel to bring His Kingdom here on earth.

Share your story, your song is a powerful tool and if you’re not good with words, then use your actions, anything! Just don’t do nothing. Do good!  Care and share!

Remember, practice makes perfect.

Be courageous, be led by God’s Holy Spirit. If God is calling you out of your familiar place; maybe to leave everything you know to go out to the unknown. Be brave!

He will make you brave. He is a good Father. He is for you and never against. He is your champion! Like He said, He will go with you PERSONALLY! “So God has given both His promise and His Oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie” Hebrews 6:18

Perseverance and total surrender are needed.

 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
 in all your ways submit to Him,
    and He will make your paths straight.
– Proverbs 3:5-6
 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,
 baptising them in the name of the Father and the Son
 and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything
I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age
– Matthew 28:19-20

This is a command. Jesus is not begging or supplicating but simply commissioning every believer to go all over the world to win souls.

Go and Proclaim!

Pastor Craig Groeschel  in his book the Christian atheist said

When we are open to go wherever the Holy Spirit leads us. He will use us to share the greatest gift of all – eternal life through Christ. And when He does, we may never know on this side of eternity how much of a difference we made, But someday on the other side – we’ll know in full.

Share the Word of God and give your testimony of the beauty of Jesus Christ with the unsaved.

This is the heartbeat of God. He does not have pleasure in the death of a sinner.

Let’s flood the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

I love you,
