You are enough.

…You will need to prove yourself – show them what you have got…

…They will need to prove themself…

These words were spoken into the world this week (and it was not the first time I have heard them and perhaps not the last) – and each time – a part of my stomach churned – as to say, everything about this is a lie.  But, being in the world and caught up in work – for a moment – I forgot why – why it rubbed me the wrong way.  Simply, it came to my attention that there was a disconnect between the ways of the world and the ways of God.  This notion of needing to prove ourselves comes from the fight of the world.  We live in a world with billions of people, voices, personalities; talents and abilities and at times we may find ourselves fighting to prove ourselves – fighting to be heard and to be seen.  Fighting to prove our selves worthy of a position or place in the world… But, it is God that allows us to grow, it is God that moves us into position and prospers us.  If we humble ourselves God will lift us up.  He will fight for us – He will prove us (so to speak) to the world.

The Holy Spirit brought me back to this and reminded me, ‘you are enough – you are chosen and already approved and proven.’  I thought, if this comment on needing to prove oneself were to arise and be made again – I would say, ‘no one needs to prove anything – this person was chosen and approved for the position – they do not need to prove themselves.  They just need to be themselves.  And they will rise to the top without a fight and without compromising their authenticity… In God’s time, the last will come first and the first will come last…’

Know that the position that God has placed you in, is exactly where you need to be – you were chosen and approved for that role – and may you be reminded that you do not need to fight to prove yourself – you are already proven – you are already enough.

You are enough.  I am enough.

You are enough.  I am enough too.

You lack nothing. I lack nothing.

You have all you need. I too have all I need.

You don’t need to fight to prove yourself – for the moment you do, you will compromise your authenticity – your truth – your own God given talents and abilities.

Focus on what you can do, not on what you cannot do.  I cannot do the things you do, and you may not be able to do the things I can do – we have different strengths and abilities.  And as individuals we are whole, complete and lack nothing.

God knows us and perhaps better than we know ourselves at time.  He strategically places us in positions and places – exactly where we need to be – with the people we need to impact most or even learn from.    On occasion, His plans do not match our plans or ideas of where we want to be – but God’s plans are always greater than ours.  Trust God and His plans even though you may look forward with uncertainty – or more because God has not revealed His plans to you.  Trust the process, for He is in the process.

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ… The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? The Lord is on my side as my helper; I shall look in triumph on those who hate me. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes… For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.  (Colossians 3:23-24, Psalm 118:6-9, Galatians 1:10 ESV)

My dear reader, I pray – in the name of Jesus that you may be filled with joy as you work for the Lord – whatever capacity that is and wherever you are placed around the world.  You are approved by God into that position – there is no need for the approval of mankind – for you have something greater and better…  and if the chaotic state of the world is anything to go by, it will always be difficult to please man – and we may always be fighting for ‘something’, due to the deficits of this broken world.  But it is by the blood of Jesus that we are made right and righteous with God – His approval, His grace, His mercy, His provision, deliverance, and His love is all we need.  He is enough. I am enough. You are enough.

Every season is beautiful.

On Friday, in between patients, I had a conversation with a work colleague – on the weather.  (It was small talk that led into much deeper conversation…) He commented that at 7am that morning it was negative 3 degrees.  I said, I didn’t realise it was that cold until I stepped outside and found gardens and cars in the street covered in frost.  I didn’t realise it was that cold, but I certainly felt it as I walked to work.

That morning, I decided to walk all the way to work rather than walking into town and catching a bus the rest of the way.

In the horizon, to the east the sun had just risen above the hills and mountains – it shone brightly – illuminating a perfect blue sky.  I marvelled in the new day – I marvelled in the glory of the sun – the light of the world.  I noticed the frost on the grass in the parks – glistening and sparkling.  I thought it was beautiful but it wasn’t until I got into town – I had a choice of walking through a park or walking parallel to the park into town and through town library square to get on-route to walk along the river to work.  I took the parallel path.  I paused at the park in awe of its beauty – the grass was covered in a fine thick layer of frost – that stretched as far as my eye could see.  The sun shone through throwing bare trees into silhouette – their branches reaching out to the sun.  (I don’t think my description could ever do the image justice but I knew it was beautiful.  I stopped and took a photo.)  As I resumed walking, I asked: why are showing me this?  What are you trying to say in this Lord?

The answer that came to me, was this –  every season is beautiful.  Every season is beautiful.  You may have a favourite season – but every season should be a favourite – for it is still beautiful.  Every season is made beautiful by God the creator.  He is the greatest artist – He makes every season beautiful because He is in that season.  He never goes out of fashion as He is in season – He is sustainable fashion – He goes through all the seasons.  He was in the seasons with our ancestors – He is in this season – and He will be in the seasons to come.  Every season is beautiful because He is in it.

Every season is beautiful.

Your season of grief is beautiful – for He is close to the broken hearted and crushed in spirit.  This season is made beautiful for those that grieve will be comforted.

Your season of solitude or isolation is made beautiful – for you will strengthen your relationship with the Lord and those in your own family – those you are called to be close to.

Your season of losing work and a secure income, will be made beautiful – for you will find a new trust in the Lord and it will be made beautiful as you see how He provides all your needs.  This season is beautiful.

Your season of illness is beautiful, as you seek the Lord in a deeper capacity – it brings you closer to the Lord – it brings your family and loved ones closer – and closer to the Lord.  Your trust is desperate and deeper in Him. You are fierce in prayer. This season is beautiful in all its uncertainty – yet made beautiful in the Lord’s healing and miracles.

Our joy, our suffering and “mundane life” moments are beautiful – every season is beautiful.

Every season is beautiful.

We are so blessed to have a shining light in the world.  When the sun shines – everything is made beautiful – it sends out the darkness.  Even by night, we are not forsaken as we are given the stars and moon to break through the darkness by night.  We’re reminded by the light of the moon that on the other side of the world the sun is still shining, and it will soon be daytime again – and the sun will send out the darkness.  On average we have 12 hours of light and dark – (hours may vary depending on location in the world and time of year…)  Bible Study says the number 12 is considered a perfect number and symbolises God’s power and authority.  So, in lightness and darkness God still has power and authority in that season – even when all seems lost. He still has power and authority to turn that situation around in that season – whether we find ourselves grieving losses or celebrating triumphs.  By day, by night – by 12 – God’s power and authority reigns.

Whatever season we are in and are faced with – remember this season is beautiful.  It may not fall into the world’s definition of beautiful – but know that the season you are in is truly stunning – for God’s power and authority still reigns in that season and while there are 12 hours to a day and night – He is still in it.

My dear reader, you are so blessed, so loved and cherished by your creator.  I pray that you may receive these words, that this season you are in – it may not be the same season that I am in – but know your season is equally as beautiful as the one I am in and it is as unique as your own fingerprint.  You are God’s wonderful handiwork – and so well crafted in His image.  I feel God’s love and peace in all of this – and sincerely hope this is transferred to you too.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted… And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus… May God bless us still, so that all the ends of the earth will fear him… “ ‘The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you… Every good and perfect gift comes from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows… but blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him.  They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream.  It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green.  It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit… So, do not fear for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand …My God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation.  He is my stronghold, my refuge, and my saviour – from violent people you save me. “I called to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and have been saved from my enemies…

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.  He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul.  He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.  Even though I walk the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff comfort me. (Matthew 5:4, Phillipians 4:9, Psalm 67:7, Numbers 6:24-25, James 1:17, Jeremiah 17:7-8, Isaiah 41:10, 2 Samuel 22:3-4, Psalm 23:1-4)

May God’s word of truth be received, planted, and treasured in your heart.  May you call upon and hold on tight to his truth as you walk through this season and valley – and may you know and remember – by day and by night, in light and darkness – God reigns every hour – and when His Son shines, every season is made beautiful. In love and peace – until next time, God willing, W.A.R on in praise and prayer. Xx.

A prayer: Arise, O Lord!

A prayer: Arise, O Lord!

Heavenly Father,

Your Holiness – your glory, your majesty – continues to have me in awe and reverence of who you are.  Thank you for bringing me into a new day – thank you for waking me and giving me a second chance – with every new day our slates are wiped clean.  What happened yesterday stays in yesterday.  Today is new, I am new and I am open to allowing you to move in new ways.  Your ways (movement) cannot be contained in a box or through a formula.  You are constant and consistent in who you are – our loving, giving, forgiving and merciful Father – your grace is like no other.

Yet, when you move – when you touch hearts, reveal yourself to others, break chains, heal us from disease and affliction – when you give us break through – you will do it in a way that only you can do it – and no one way is the same.  It will surprise us – amaze us – and sometimes, we won’t see that you were in it until we have passed out of that season into something new.  It is then through reflection – that we can see your hand is or was all over that situation.  We love and praise you Lord for all that you do – whether we see it in this moment or not.  We praise you.  We give you all the glory and all the praise.

We thank you Lord – we thank you.

Again – we bring and raise up the people of the world to you, oh Lord.  All the people of all nations who are hurting, who are suffering in sickness, in poverty, oppression, domestic violence, addictions and bodies ravaged with disease, lies, corruption and in-justices.  The world in this state, is not the world you intended us to live in.  Since the fall of Adam and Eve – we have come to know evil – and the prince of darkness reigns this world – but I will not give him that glory – for the light you shine through your Son is so much brighter than the darkness that dwells in this world.

On behalf of Eve – I repent – I turn to you, oh God – I turn to you in remorse, to say, I am gravely sorry for the actions of our dear Eve.  I am sorry that she listened to the serpent – who instilled doubt in her mind – forcing her to question – did God really say that?  I am sorry she listened and gave in to temptation and ate from the tree of knowledge.  All the world’s problems stem-back and can be traced back to that one moment… I often wonder how different would the world be if she had listened solely to you Lord and not to the lowly slithering snake.

In this musing, a thought rises above all other thoughts – it needed to happen… You say it needed to happen for you had a plan to send your Son, your light into the world… Until that happened, you didn’t leave us nor forsake us – but showed us how faithful you were to those that were faithful to you –  as you were with Abraham or with Noah in protecting him and his family during the great flood.

Lord, the world is still suffering in the shadows of the fall.  I repent – I turn to you in remorse – I turn to you.  I would say, I repent on their behalf – but that alone will not save those that do not know you – that Lord is your job – you save and add to the church.  My greatest prayer is that you may reveal yourself to those that do not know you and are suffering greatly.  Also, reveal yourself again to those that know you – so their faith may be strengthened and encouraged.  I lift them (all people) up to you – I pray that you may reveal yourself to them – pour out your love, grace, mercy, healing and provision onto them.  May they know your greatness – may they know that all they have comes from you.  May they see how you have been working in their life and calling them to know and trust you.  Dear Jesus, the world – the people of the world are longing for your light, your love and compassion.  I pray that your truth will land in their hearts – plant a mustard seed of truth – and may it grow into the strongest and largest tree of truth – and may you be at the centre of it all – and allow for such growth.   For we cannot do life without you – for you are life – you are our redeemer – you breath life into dry bones.

We thank you Lord for all you do, have done and will do.  Our hearts and lives are yours – may you continue to guide us in how you want us to reach and love others in your mighty and glorious name.

And Lord, I pray for my dear brothers and sisters in Christ – I pray for their protection – continue to protect them – us from the evil one – protect us from the darkness of the world.  Break chains and heal our brokenness. Seal our houses and lives with your divine protection.  In Jesus wonderous name I pray, amen.


Arise, O Lord; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the humble… Awake, why sleepest thou, O Lord?  Arise, cast us not off forever… arise for our help, and redeem us for thy mercy’s sake… (Psalm 10:12, Psalm 44:23, Psalm 44:26 KJV)

W.A.R on with praise and prayer – in sickness and in health.

Over the last couple of days, I have been nursing a head cold (primary symptoms runny nose and congested sinuses and headache…) This has consequently resulted in a couple of days off work, and to self-isolate until symtoms resolve.  This time has also involved rest, cold and flu tablets with paracetamol, herbal immune boosters and prayer and rest.  So, while these things are operating at their peak, it has enabled me to write and share a prayer (albeit through fatigue.)


Heavenly Father,

Thank you for this new day – this new day to rest and heal and be in your presence – although I know you are always with me.  Thank you for your love, for your peace, grace and mercy.  You are a great and wonderful – almighty God – we praise you – I praise you in sickness and in health.  I praise you in the valley and from the mountain tops – your glory, your power, your might, your love supersedes anything and everything in this world.

You are bigger than disease – you are bigger and mightier than this virus that is rampaging across the world.  You are bigger and mightier than depression or any ill-mental health condition – you will break the chains that keep us captive and will free our minds and bodies from any and all ailments.  Jesus, our Lord and saviour overcame death – just as He overcame death – we too will be lifted up and overcome barriers; disease and conflicts, we may face in this broken world.


Thank you, Jesus.

Thank you Father.

In you Jesus, I have my freedom.  Yet, I feel in debt to you Lord – that I could never repay you for sacrificing your own life for me, for us.  I feel there is nothing I can do that could possibly come close to repaying you.   But, I will continue to honour, praise and worship you – my heart is yours and may your will be mine.  And may you fill me with your strength and bravery to walk in your will and way – and not the way of the world.  May I continue to turn to you first and not to ways of the world.  Forgive me when I – when we, slip-up in these moments.

Forgive my mistakes.

(… Here, I paused in writing, closed my eyes and allowed thoughts to rise – “I am here. You are forgiven” – rose to the surface of my thoughts and from there the rest flowed…)

I am here.  You are forgiven – this is my grace – my mercy I have and give to you.  You are my love – my chosen love – and in that you are always forgiven.  You are forgiven before you ask for forgiveness.  Yet I will make it known to you – more so when you seek forgiveness.

Thank you, Jesus.  Thank you.

I am here with you. I am here healing you.  Allow yourself to rest.  Allow yourself to rest.  Just know I am here with you.  I am here with you.  I need you to slow down and take some time out with me.  Breath in my presence and breath in my peace.  The world can be busy, but your mind and heart does not need to be busy.  Keep your focus on me – my presence – my peace – my love – my grace.

Thank you – thank you Jesus.

I feel your peace, I feel your presence.

I feel your healing hand over my body and renewing my mind.

Thank you, Father.

Thank you, Holy Spirit.

Thank you, Jesus.

Thank you for being three in one – all my praises – all our praises are yours.

My heart is yours – just as your heart is mine.  I am so glad I found you – I wish I could have found you sooner but I know I found you at exactly the right time – for you, my author and finisher of my faith and story – you have crafted a wonderful story – a story that only I can tell, and in a way that only I tell it… I am so glad that I found you – and my heart only longs for you.

Thank you for loving me – loving me before I knew you – thank you for choosing me – and I choose you too.  I choose to choose you today and everyday thereafter (God willing).  I actively choose you.  I choose to put my faith in you.  I choose to trust you when I may not be able to see the path beneath my feet.  I choose to trust you when faced with uncertainty.

I choose to seek your love and peace when fear may knock on the door of my mind.  Your perfect love casts out fear – your perfect love casts out fear, saying, ‘not today devil – not today.’ Your perfect love casts out fear, making room for peace to dwell in our hearts and mind.

Your love is perfect.

It is perfect when we are not.  Your love does not change while we do.  You love and marvel in us, in every moment – even in those moments we may call, ‘un-savoury’, ‘un-pleasant’ – you love us in all our flawed humanness.  Your love and mercy for us is beyond comprehension.  Your Holiness and greatness is beyond human comprehension.  For all of this, I thank you – all my praises are yours – forever and always.  In Jesus name I pray, amen.



An aside: before I signed off in writing this prayer, I paused and asked – what do you want me to say?  What word do you want me to pass on?  The thought that rose above all thoughts was – love your neighbour as you love yourself…which led me to looking up this verse:  “Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets (Matthew 22:37-38 KJV)…  So, may you be reminded, as you go into the world this week, to love your neighbour as yourself.  Who is your neighbour?  Simply, it is those God has placed in your path – those that live under your same roof, those that share the same space with you whether it is the road you drive or walk on or the shop you purchase groceries from or the colleagues you work with – these people are your neighbours and you’re called to love them as you love yourself – or more, as Jesus first loved you.  Love them with kindness, generosity, openness, compassion, and patience.

May God’s grace and richest blessings be upon you.  Until next time, God willing, W.A.R on in praise and prayer. Xx.

Flesh desires or Spirit desires… walk in faith with the Spirit of God.

About six months ago, I received a call offering a graduate nursing position in another part of the state.  At the time, I had felt prompted to add in another section into my draft manuscript.  This section was about belonging to a church and how the enemy will twist the truth – ever so slightly to make you believe that you don’t.  At this time, I can also recall being led to passages of scripture that was about standing firm – standing my ground.  I didn’t know what this meant – until I got the call for work and to move. Even at that time, I couldn’t see that I was being told to wait, to stay put – that I belonged in this town.  Instead, I freaked out and reached out to a body of people – of prayer warriors to pray into this situation for me – and with me – because really, I had no idea what to do.

I had three days to make a decision; to say yes or no to this call.

It wasn’t an easy decision – because on one hand – I could see it was a good thing – it was a career progression; a foot in the door.  However, it would have meant uprooting everything that was starting to become established here; friends, church, my son’s school and friends.  It meant starting everything again, but it also meant we would be moving back to an area that we moved from.  I felt like we would be going backwards rather than forwards by moving back. 

I discussed this with a friend and in a matter of hours, I knew I could not accept this offer.  I allowed the decision to sit until the deadline and sent the declining email.  It felt right, I was not riddled with any kind of unease.  Every now and then, I wondered if it was the right decision – it was out of curiosity more than anything – not out of regret.

Then covid-19 hit us all – and in a big way. 

Quarantine and lock down happened. 

Everything closed up except for the essentials.

The end of April came round – expected start date for my grad-position.  It then occurred to me – it was in fact the right decision to stay put.  Moving and starting a new job in the middle of a pandemic would have been a logistical nightmare – from organising removalists, to finding a new rental accommodation, to a new school – and we wouldn’t have found a new church as they had all closed down too (but moved onto on-line platform).  In that moment, I could see – I was exactly where I needed to be – I belonged here, in this town with our church, friends and support network – even though we were limited to what or who we could see due to lockdown.  We belonged here.

Retrospectively, I can see that I didn’t need to freak out and reach out to friends for a prayer request – as I had already been told what I needed to do, (to stand firm and know I belong here) – it was preparing me for the moment that followed with the (phone) call into action.   But had I truly heard what God was saying to me in that moment, I would not have needed to reach out to others…

Ok, so – fast forward to now and to my last post: ‘Jesus is in this season. He moves amongst us’ which was on… a few things and also included answering ‘the call’ and questioning – ‘will you say, I am welcome here?’ 

So, this is really exciting!

I wrote that post in my journal the night before typing it out to post.  I didn’t really know what it meant – it was purely the flow of the Holy Spirit – and I certainly felt a great sense of urgency as I wrote it and I almost struggled to keep up with the flow.  It wasn’t until the next day, I checked my emails and there was an email from the education unit co-ordinator from the local hospital asking me to contact her.  I had been waiting for months to get into this acute program and suddenly, it seemed like it was about to happen.

I thought, I will finish typing out this post and then will call her.  I did – and it hit me – that whatever she asked, I needed to say yes to it.  It wasn’t just about saying yes to the work, it was about saying, yes to Jesus – it was about saying – yes Jesus – you are welcome here.

In short, I was recruited into a testing clinic for Covid-19 as a registered nurse… (This was something that I was being sent into.) … I said yes to this call. I said yes to taking the kingdom of God with me. I said yes to allowing Jesus into this space. I said yes when I was asked: will you answer my call? Will you say, I am welcome here? 

… To this, I say- Jesus you are welcome wherever I go – for I carry you with me. I don’t fly solo – for you are my pilot and it is you I follow. It is you I follow. I carry you with me and you carry me and give me strength when I am weary. You give me the words I need and the ability to build rapport with patients and children who come for testing – you ease their anxiety and make what could be a traumatic experience and turn it into something a little more enjoyable. Your presence flows through me in showing grace and patience when things do not flow smoothly- you give me peace to flow through it!! Even though my focus is on the task at hand and I seem to be far away from you, I know you are still working through me and you’re not far from me at all. Your work flows through me.

Your work flows through me.

Your grace, your patience, your love and your peace flows through me. Thank you for giving me this opportunity- thank you for entrusting me with this job….

On the Saturday, before starting this job, I was led to Luke Chapter 10.  The verses that stood out to me, were about taking the kingdom of God with us – to say, the kingdom of God has come near you – and if someone, rejects you – know it is not you they reject but Jesus and the one who sent Him – the Father… Even, in this – I felt great pressure in knowing that I carry Jesus and the kingdom of God with me.  I thought, what if I mess this up? What if I don’t say the right thing – or miss moments to minister to the people I work with?  A thought that rose above all of that was, ‘your presence alone will be enough’.  But this thought was not just referring to my presence – it was about carrying the presence of Jesus and the kingdom of God with me.

Somewhere here, it occurred to me that I was meant to be working here and I was reminded of what happened six months ago – when I was called into action but told to stand firm.  This time, I was being called into action and being told to – go.  The only difference this time around, was that I didn’t freak out nor did I reach out to others for prayer. I prayed into it myself… but over the last few months, I had developed a stronger relationship with Jesus, the Father and the Holy Spirit – and I knew with certainty that this was where I needed to be for the moment.  I knew He was in it because so much had been bypassed, such as the application process.  I can remember seeing position advertised for testing nurses, however it required at least two years clinical experience.  At the time, I thought I could apply for that and do it but was put off by experience needed – so did not apply and let it go.  But God is in the detail and in the process and sometimes He will fast-track that process.

Even leading up to this moment, I had the dream about being asked if I was ready to go?  I can remember thinking – what is this about?  Is it about work? If so, the answer would be no, I am not ready.  At that time, I was still waiting for my uniform to arrive (the second time around – as I had to send it back as I had ordered the wrong size.)  Also, legally, I cannot practise without professional indemnity insurance – and at the time of being asked: are you ready to go? I hadn’t finalised my insurance –  but shortly after submitting that documentation – my uniform arrived and my application for registration renewal was approved. So, then, in theory, I was then ready to go… Somewhere after that I received the email – my call into action.  I was ready to go (although incredibly nervous).

So, I could see I had a full circle moment – it started with a word – a word to stand firm, followed by a call into action, followed by listening and responding in faith by declining the offer.  To then being given another word – a word to go – followed by a call into action and responding in faith and saying yes.  I look at both of these situations – and in both instances, I could have changed my decision – I could have said yes to the first call and I could have said no to the last call out of my flesh – but… it changes my heart from trusting God to trusting my own choices.  I could have said yes to first choice, I could have said yes to career progression in a supportive environment and yes to regular income.  However, it would have come at a cost and with great difficulty in moving during the middle of a pandemic.  God knew what was going to happen and was telling me what I needed to do – stand firm.  In this second call, I could have said ‘no’ – out of fear – fear of unknown, fear of potentially contracting the virus and not wanting to place my family at risk either… both instances were preceded with a word and an action – I was already informed of what I needed to do and all I needed was to listen, be obedient and step out in faith and trust that God is in it.

To be honest, I have no idea what God’s plans are for the immediate future – what my role is (outside of my clinical role) – or how He wants me to impact others… but what I do know, is that He has plans to prosper me and not harm me – and I rest my trust in him.

I wanted to write this, to pass this onto you – may you be encouraged – and step out in faith – into whatever you have been called into; whether it’s a call into action or to stand firm in where you are. 

And know, God’s timing is always awesome, and your situation will be made beautiful in His time.

May you, my dear, walk by faith and with the spirit of God who leads you. 

“Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.

You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. 10 But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. 11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you….” (Romans 8:5-10 NIV)

Until next time, dear Reader (God willing), W.A.R on with praise and prayer and stay safe. Xx.
