Notes to my younger myself

Hi babygirl,

In life, you have to know what you want but then that is a process so don’t beat yourself up if you don’t know yet.

God is the creator and He knows why He created you so I suggest take some time out to get guidance from Him. It’s something so little yet so key because the truth is His will would always be done so it’s better to know what it is and walk in it instead of going round in circles and still coming back to it.

I know that one is most sensitive to the voice of God during a fast so that would be my advice, even though you might not get the answer immediately. It could take a while. Try the Daniel fast sometime.

While you’re fasting though dabble into different things here and there and find mentors or read about people that have succeeded in the fields you want to go into. God has given you the skill to do all sorts of things.

Don’t be idle!! An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.

Don’t be shy to ask for advice from older people and don’t be scared to work for free too. You’re in the building stage of your life so anything that will add value, please do.

As you’re being sensitive to the Holy Spirit be sensitive to your environment. Look for problems and try to find solutions to them.

Bind and cast the spirit of laziness and procrastination because they are the worst.

If you fail at anything, do not beat yourself up or sulk or mourn. Hurry and get up so that you can try the next thing. A failure is a step closer to a breakthrough. At least you’ve learnt what you should not do or how you should not go about a thing.

Just because you think you like him/her does not mean they’re good for you. Test all likes!!

Don’t rush into things without knowing exactly what you’re getting into.

Do not choose a partner based on how he relates with you friends’ partners. He is probably not God’s choice for you.

Do not think you will marry him just because he loves God. Not every man of God is your husband.

Do not worry, you will eventually meet your husband. Just make sure you have heard properly from God first.

You will never know how to love your partner if you do not love God. You find out that your love for him increases from loving God. I just understood this today so do not beat yourself up if you do not understand.

Never lie to your parents. NEVER!! You will regret it.

“A man can receive nothing unless it is given to him from Heaven” – John 3:27. Everything you have was given to you by God so feel free to ask Him for the user’s manual.

Everything will work out for your good because you love God and are called according to His purpose. Do not forget the reason everything will work out for your good!! You have to love God and walk in the purpose He has for you. Don’t worry if you don’t know your purpose yet, you will eventually (and you will love it). However you only find out from spending time with God.

You will realize that all you’re going to go through is preparing you for your purpose.

Always show love to others Don’t be scared to go above and beyond. Show love even if, in fact, especially if you know it won’t be reciprocated. It is a good feeling.

Read a lot my dear.

Use your time wisely.

Sleep less.

You will have very good taste in music eventually.

Never compromise on your standards, they are not too high.

You must decrease for God to increase. Do not hold on to yourself. What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul.

You will find a church that excites you to go to church on Sundays.

Speak declarations over your life (including your husband and children babycakes). This is what Jesus meant when He said you should have faith as little as a mustard seed. When you speak the words God has revealed to you over your life, you do not fret or have panic attacks (ahh you will have these) when hard times come because you have spoken and believe the word of God concerning you (in other words, you have faith).

You are  fearfully, wonderfully and perfectly made. You will eventually see it. Just wait.

God is worthy to lean on. Trust in the Lord with all you heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.

You are nothing without God. So do not leave Him.

God’s strength is made known in your weakness. You won’t always have it all figured out or you might not be able to handle all of it. That is when God comes in.

Let your light shine so bright that others see the good work in you and glorify your father in Heaven. This should be your mantra.

Learn to save.

Always give your first fruit to God, not because it is a law, but because you want to. First fruit of your day, income, everything.

You are loved by God, your family, friends, even strangers will love you.

Do not be afraid of man who can kill only body but fear God that can kill both body and soul.

Sometimes you will feel your fire for God burning out, when that happens, come back to read this or anyone of the previous posts or the book of acts.

Drink a lot of water.

Don’t joke with your health.

Never stop improving yourself.

Have a gentle and quiet spirit (Lam 3:27-28).

Don’t let what people say about you get to you, especially if it is not true. Only God’s thoughts towards you matters.

The Holy Spirit is your best friend boo.

Don’t get bored of reading your bible.

Most finally, NEVER STOP LAUGHING!! Life is not that hard.

I love you so much my darling, which is why I am writing this. You’re amazing.

#PhosMoment – Sugarfied

Another #PhosMoment here!!! All the sweet tooth people in the house can I see your hands up?  ✋✋✋✋✋✋✋✋✋

Hi my name is Phos and I’m a sweet tooth. I had been off sugar for a while but relapsed sometime in January and I’m just trying to get it right again. In January, I happened to graduate from the university and was fortunate enough to have a graduation cake. Since it was graduation, I decided to have a cheat day which became a cheat week and then a cheat month. Just tasting sugar once revived the sugar lover in me and I relapsed. 

This is the same with sin. My Bible study teachers when I was younger will tell us that when we tell just one lie, we need like 50 more to cover it up, which is true. This however is not limited to just lies. We wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers and just like on the battlefield, the opponent looks for weak spots to attack – any part of the body that’s not protected, because once a soldier is hit, he becomes compromised. He’s weaker and it’s easier for the enemy to attack him again or even kill him. The devil is out there looking for who to kill, steal and destroy and the moment he finds a weak spot, he takes advantage of it and all he needs is for you to fall once and he’ll make you fall over and over again. All hope is not lost however because the Bible says if we confess our sins, he’s faithful to forgive us of all our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). Therefore if you fall, immediately get up and clean yourself up by asking God for forgiveness and don’t turn a cheat second into a cheat minute or a cheat hour or a cheat day or a cheat week or a cheat month. Get up immediately and clean yourself. For example, watching or reading pornography, one might not know by just clicking a link that he’ll get to such a site and then he gets there and starts watching instead of closing it immediately he found out then someone walks in and asks, what he’s doing and he lies and the lie leads to more lies and all that. The ideal thing however was to close the site once it was found out what kind of site it. It’s easier said than done though. God help us all. 

Something similar happened to me. I decided (it’s a choice) to continue in the sin since I had already started and then I remembered my sugar days and just like that #PhosMoment. Thankfully though, i realized what was happening before it got out of hand. I do not want to imagine what would have happened if it went out of hand so I thought to share so we can encourage ourselves.

What Phos Moment have you had lately?? 

Confessions of a Christian Chick

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew [and] approved of you [as My chosen instrument], and before you were born I separated and set you apart, consecrating you; [and] I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5 (AMPC)

Heyyy best friends!! It’s been a while I know and I’m so sorry about that. At first I was really busy but then I just became lazy. Happy New Month!!!! A number of people told me I’m too coded in this April that passed (although I think I’m an open book). I was voted most likely to elope with bae by my friends, because of my coded ways they say (although, I think someone capable of eloping has to be adventurous, not so much coded) so I decided to start this new segment on the blog. For every time I’m away for more than one week, I have to return with a confession. Introduce something new myself since apparently no one truly knows me 😒😒. Let’s start today’s gist shall we? 

I DO NOT WANT TO KISS MY HUSBAND UNTIL MY WEDDING DAY. 

This is not a commandment in the Bible because I can see how some of you are already bringing out your Bibles for me to point out the book, chapter and verse so I repeat, this is not a commandment in the Bible. The Bible however does say to not fornicate and to flee from all appearances of evil and when God tells me to flee, being the drama queen that I am, I pick race. Also, Cornelius Lindsey said God told him not to kiss his wife until their wedding day because she was not his yet and that made so much sense to me. My boyfriend is not mine yet until we’re married. The Bible even says in 1st Corinthians 7 that it’s not permissible for a husband to deny his wife of his body as the husband has authority over the wife’s body and vice versa so I know that I own him after marriage *evil laugh*. Before marriage however, there is nothing of the such. Its possible that I date someone and end up not marrying him so he’s not really mine. You don’t just go to a car dealer, pick up the keys to a car and drive it home that it’s yours. You have to pay for it and even if you say but you can test drive, remember that once you hit it, dent it, scratch it, you pay for it as well. You can’t eat your cake and have it. 

A while ago, I went to visit my friend who wanted to see me and on getting there, he started to tell me how he had feelings for me. There was nothing wrong with that but I told him I didn’t feel the same way and that’s how my guy nau wanted to kiss me saying kissing makes people see things differently. Now I don’t know about you, but marriage is a forever business and I won’t want to enter into it eyes closed. My friend explained to me how this (kissing making people see things differently) happens but I wasn’t really listening, I was in shock. My eyes were wide open and my brain was functioning perfectly when I said I did not feel the same way about him so why would kissing change anything? I didn’t sha wait to find out. I don’t want to make decisions with a cloudy mindset. 

The main purpose of a phone is to make and receive calls that’s why no matter what you’re doing on your phone, when a call comes in, there’s a disruption so you either pick the call or ignore it. This does not stop the phone from having other functions. It just recognizes the main purpose as most important or of utmost priority and the others as peripheral. Marriage, in the same way, is first for companionship, to find a helpmate that would help in achieving God’s purpose for your life. God saw that it was not good for Adam to be alone and so He brought Eve. This is the primary reason for marriage. Marriage is first and foremost for companionship and I would want to see if I enjoy the company of my boyfriend without the attractions (distractions)  before I marry him. I want to truly know him, what he stands for and see if we have the same vision in life, basically just enjoy his company so that when I’m pregnant and throwing up and cranky and I might not feel like kissing or touching him, I want to know that I’ll enjoy just being around him. It’s before marriage I’ll check that because marriage is till death do us part. 

Right now, this “not kissing before marriage” is getting really popular but I made the decision when I knew about just Heather and Cornelius Lindsey and I won’t even lie to you that it’s been easy. I don’t have a boyfriend yet and I’ve changed my mind about it a million times so I’m telling you guys (first set of people I’m telling actually) so that you can serve as an accountability group for me. These are some of the reasons my lips are going to lose their virginity on my wedding day. Basically, all the reasons can be summed up into two

1. I want to honor God and put Him first

2. I want to truly know my future hubby before I agree to forever. 

*Bonus reason*

3. It helps in the filtering of guys

So now you know one private thing about me. Tell me one thing about yourself. I’d love to know you better. How do you feel about not kissing till the wedding day? Have you tried it?  Are you trying it?  Or do you know anyone trying it?  I’d love to hear from you. 

Till next time!!

Fitness Blender

For 2017, my theme for the year is wholesome living. This wholesomeness made emphasis to my health. I was diagnosed with a skin condition sometimes last year (misdiagnosed actually) and it got me thinking a lot about my health. Two years ago I had an appendectomy. It’s like something new happens every year so I decided to pay more attention to my health – my skin, hair, body had to be in shape. I can’t afford to die without fulfilling God’s purpose for my life just because I had 10 extra burgers that I could do without. That being said, I found these people on YouTube. Since I’m a YouTube lover, I searched on there for workout videos and I came across these fitness blender guys. I’ve done a couple of their workouts and trust me when I say they’re legit. At the end of each video they say Fitness Blender is a free workout organization, help keep it free by sharing so I’m doing just that.

For my people that say being fit is not in the scripture, look at it this way. When I’m called for mission work to help build a church, I want to be able to carry the bricks and not just be the sand person. I want to be able to go over the mountains and the hills to share the gospel. My body is the temple of the Lord and I have to take care of it.

Their you tube is here and their website here 

Have fun shaping your bodies for the Lord!! Do you know any other workout guys that I can try? I really want abs you guyssss!!

P.s: Yes!! I did not forget that today is Tuesday so I still posted the random Tuesday post.No I have not misplaced my calendar. I posted the weekly Salvation post earlier today though. Check it out here.
