10th Sunday...It had to be at 10:00am!!!

Song of the week: Donnie McClurkin – Day Of Elijah

Encouragement Verse: I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.” – Philippians 4:12, 13 NIV

Quote of the week:Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many; not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.” --- Dickens

Hmmm! against all odds, I delighted to be able to celebrate my ‘Tenth’ Sunday post. It was not easy but I can rejoice. What can I say? I can only give thanks to God for giving me the grace to reach a milestone.


Change is always good but it can be hard to accept at first. Our human nature always wants to go back to our comfort zone. The secret of embracing change is that there is a lot to behold but we will never know until we do actually agree to CHANGE

So How it began

It began with ‘My Genesis’, a new beginning, a new birth. It was ‘Letting Go’ that let me ‘Flying without Wing’. Now is definitely a ‘Time for Change’ and ‘Out of my Busy Schedule’; I still got the time to write a letter ‘To the one I Love’…because I truly needed closure to be able to get a move on to the direction the wind had began to take me.

Gradually I am ‘Finding my way back’…that ‘When the Past came knocking again’; I knew I needed to take back the keys to my heart and shut that door forever.
It may hurt but I will dust myself of all my past mistakes and in the process, I will be ‘Learning to Forgive’ what the past still holds me guilty of.

Anyways, I am still rejoicing about the first milestone I have accomplished…and counting all my blessings.

Beyond the pale

This Sunday I want to especially, Thank everyone who made life so unbearable for me…Cicely Tyson once said that “Challenges make you discover things about yourself that you never really knew.”

Ok, maybe back then I did not just get it…I questioned God with the ‘Whys?’ and the ‘What?’ because I just could not understand what it was I had done wrong to deserve the happenings. I would even go as far as reminding God about people who had done worst things than I (as if He needed to me reminded) but were having it well with them.
But God is God and is no man…He knows best. He was getting me ready for what was coming ahead…

I am not saying I am perfect now…or saying that trouble moved next door to the Johnsons. What I am saying is that I am seeing past my situation and seeing what God has done and is doing through what is happening and what has happened.

I am who I am today because of the storms I have passed through. Trouble never ends but God gives us the strength to bear each one and the wisdom to get through them. I know I haven’t got to the point God wants me to get to but slowly but surely I will get there. And like a prodigal daughter, God welcomes me back to His throne of MERCY.

I rejoice…

To my Readers: --> ‘Happy New Month...‘May you wake each day of this month with His blessings and sleep each night in His keeping...’
