Week 30

Good day to you, my fair people. I don’t actually talk like that- I just wanted to take the time to bring you round to one little point.

Life is serious.

But, honey, not so serious as to make you forget to let go once in a while and be free to do whatever you desire. Not so serious that you cannot smile, perhaps laugh at something silly. You can actually sit back, raise your feet, sip some tea (or if you are into coffee, then by all means go right ahead), watch some TV, read a good book, start a conversation, draw a picture, seek humour in simple things…do something to remind yourself that life is not all about spreadsheets and hard-to-achieve targets.

I know, I know; some of you may be thinking: does she know what she is talking about? Does she know what I do?

  1. I am a doctor! saving lives is an all-hours job!
  2. It took me 10 years to get this job! I do not have the time to dillydally!
  3. I run my own business- I do not have the time for crossword puzzles
  4. She must be bored with her life- spending time writing useless blogs

Well, yeah, maybe, but when you tell the story of your life to your progeny or whoever looks up to you, they don’t want to hear about how you just can’t get away from the hustle and bustle. Even in job interviews, they ask you about hobbies- what you do when you are not working.

Maybe work is your life- I totally get that. But work at making it not all about work.

Let go, even if it’s just for 5 minutes.

Enjoy life!

TRUE TO YOU

Week 29

Hello everyone. Sorry I have been unreliable for the past weeks, but I am going to try to be consistent. Just pray for me- it ain’t easy!

Today, all I want to say to you, is be true to yourself. you may put on the masks that entice and sway other people.  But when you get home, deep in the confines of your bedroom where your most vulnerable self should be evident…there, be true to yourself. Tell yourself no lies. Give yourself no fake consolation. Smother yourself not with all that nonsense that must be filling your mind all day.

Do yourself a favour: just be you.

WORD 2

Week 20, 21 

Ephesians 6:12 (KJV)  

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
This is very true. Your fight is not against that annoying person next to you. Whether you believe it or not, spiritual powers are always at work around you. But we are grateful to God for His grace to take us through these moments and keep us alive and sane. Have no fear. With Christ in you, you do not have to fear a single thing!
God loves you FATLY!

WORTHLESS? IDTS

​Week 15, 16
I sat back recently and thought about my life, chastising myself for all the goals I set and never working towards them. Literally running out of focus so that in the end, I actually get nothing done. I have become so poor at following my own rules. It’s like discipline abandoned me somewhere along adult road. Soooo frustrating!
But then, Christ died for me. He came down from Heaven in the form of mere man and died for a one Ray who would live on earth more than 2000 years later. I feel useless a lot of the time, but never truly so because God loves me. Because He knows I can amount to something greater than my wildest dreams. Because God has great plans for me: plans to prosper me and not to harm me. Plans to give me a hope and a future.
I may be worthless in the eyes of many, but I’m priceless in the eyes of Him who really matters- Him who created me. Doesn’t matter if I don’t feel like it- I am a great person. I can overcome. I can be better.
And so can you.
Please, if you know someone who might need to read these words and be encouraged, please let them do so. I also want to encourage you personally. You are awesome. Sure, you may not have reached your true potential by now. But time is a kinetic factor. You are getting there, one step at a time.
God loves you king size!

OPEN YOUR HEART

​Week 14
Open your heart

That the bad may flow

Right out of those vessels

Cleansing you from within.
Open your heart

That the good may rush in

Take the place of all sin

Filling you with great light.
Open your heart

Let Jesus come right in

Wave the palms with joy

And humbly let Him in.
Open your heart

Be completely transformed

Be for real changed

When you open your heart.
Have a great week! God loves you!

AN EXCITING READ!

​Week 13
Hi guys! So, this week, I read a book that totally involved my senses and reached my gut.
Tamar Cohen’s “War of the Wives”!
A brilliant read about a woman who has been married for 28 years, whose husband dies, and at the funeral discovers his other “wife” of more than ten years!!!!! Drama, or drama?! Worry not; there are no spoilers here!
I have seen movies about this. It has been a topic for discussion in friendship circles. But I had never read it, much less than that. Tamar takes us into the minds of these two women and shows us the nuances of emotional fragility, lability, darkness, and the other side of love. You hate the characters, and then you sympathise and relate a little, and then you pull out your hair in anger! 
The shrapnel that destroys the loving picture you have, and the children caught up in this whole sticky web! Man, I was just flipping pages and hoping it wasn’t daylight already! But more so, I was immersed, as though it was me experiencing all this, and for me that is mighty high on my list- to feel involved. 
To Tamar Cohen, for entertaining me immensely and making me sleep so late, 4 out of 5 stars, babes! I can’t wait to read more!
God bless you!

CHRISTIANS!!!!!

​Week 11, 12
The church.

Much as many of us know it as a place of worship, we also understand that it’s us, Christians. We are Christ’s bride, the church. 
This week, I have realised something very harsh. I’ve realised that Christians are not angels. They are just “people”. I don’t mean it in a rude way. I am just really disappointed in the fact that we can clean up our outside image to appear Christian, but still go about to gossip, say hurtful things to people, bring others down, pulling prickly strings behind others. I’m very disappointed. I’m a strong Christian; this would never throw me away from my God. The relationship I have with God has a strong foundation, and I wouldn’t just be swayed by a human being.
However, I know that there are many people out there that just don’t have faith in God anymore because His servants are way too wordly and profess Christ only in word. Hypocrites, they call them.
I understand the whole “come as you are” thing. But 2 Corinthians 5:17 says that “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come”. You lay aside your old ways of the sinful nature. You be as Christ is. Yes, it doesn’t take a day…but you try, for you are in Christ.
Am I speaking to anyone here? Does anyone feel so disappointed like this sometimes? Have you given up on God, just because of His ambasdadors? Do you feel like you want to grow in your faith, but the obstacles are too present? Does it make you cry to know/see your fellow Christians act like this?
One thing to remember is that we are the “Bible” that some people read. I know, all that “forces of human nature” business often gets in our way. But keep on keeping on. Don’t make your brother/ sister fall. Do not lead them away. We are fishers of men (Matthew 4:19). We are ambassadors for Christ (2 Corinthians 5:20). Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven (Matthew 5:16).
Let’s change. Let’s be better. Let’s be like Christ. Let’s be truly church.
