Got my mind made up!

He is more than an answered prayer;

I have had my mind made up that every time a need presses hard on my heart, I will stop and whisper a prayer to the God of universe, of the stars, the sun, the angels and the things we see and things we see not. Faith is better than doubt, and saying a prayer is faith, and it calls in rest. I have injured, wounded and squeezed my heart out of life by worrying. Worry kills slowly, takes life slowly and Christ died once for us to have life, and that life is brought by humble submission to His word, and Stops of prayer to surrender what we can’t handle, what only He can do.

I have offered prayers, there are certain petitions I have repeatedly made known to Him, and I will keep praying, and this grows my faith. I don’t know how long it will take for God to answer but even if it takes longer than pleasant or comfortable, God is more than an answered prayer. He is the Father of all creation; He is the holy God who cleanses me clean even when my sins stink high, He is the God who ignites my heart and puts it on fire with His love. He is the God who whispers comfort in my depths when no one else can comfort me or heal my woundedness, He is the great I AM , who was and is to come. He is God who gave up His son to pave my way to His bosom, my resting place…I am totally satisfied in Him.

I have also made up my mind to drown and suffocate the voice of the enemy, to keep weeding off that faith may sprout and blossom I have made up my mind about what I am going to do and not do. However, I am only human and I have left provision that if my legs would steer off to the wrong path that my Father may hasten to guide me back.

Say a ,and not doubt,

Say it again when doubt knocks

Pray and wade off despair

Pray even with your heart, till strength comes back

Pray even more fervently

This is faith, and faith pleases the Father.

The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:16

 

Grace for the road!

Seeking God

Whom have I in heaven but You?
And there is nothing upon the earth that I desire besides You
My flesh and heart may fail but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
Psalms 73:25-26

It was a time of worship in my church, eyes closed , hands raised and heart reaching towards God. I was hungry and needy, I needed more of Him. It was those times you know that you know if God gave you everything you desire or even placed the world in your hands, you would feel short changed if He withdrew from you. He is my inner most and my greatest desire and nothing else will do! So, as I worshiped, I remembered reading from this lady who had gone to Katoloni prayer center and on the 7th day, the Lord visited her. That story was too beautiful to say the least and it did more than impress beauty, it aroused a deeper aching for God.

And in the midst of worship and my inner dialogue His gentle soft voice fell on my heart, not audible but unmissable. It fell strongly in my heart and I was reminded, “If you seek me diligently, you will find me” “I am a rewarder of those who diligently seek me” “Take one step towards me and I will take many towards you” and that was an invite I had to take.
[Day one of ascending the mountain of God]
I know that I am going to do this, by His grace and by His grace alone. And I know it’s going to be beautiful. Every time I set apart my time to seek His face, He always makes it memorable.

So, for you aching for more of Him, let’s journey together and share if we may.

When we fast, we say to God, “more than our stomachs want food, our souls want You!”
“The weakness for our hunger for God is not because He is unsavory, but because we keep ourselves stuffed with other things”

“Endless nibbling at the table of the world dulls our hunger for God”

God bless you as you seek Him!

After a really long time, I finally got around to blogging again. Every time I read Ann’s blog I feel refreshed and rejuvenated, Clemence’s blog gets me inspired to create beauty around me, now and then in my rounds on the internet I get a good meal of an article, some so savoury that I thank God after reading.

Last year was a very sweet and sour year for me. There was a time of constant pain that felt too much and a time heaven sang over me, lifted me up and placed me on a pillowy cloud. On those dark days, I hanged on to Mwende’s blog I looked forward to every post and I did feed and from her blog I linked up with Wambui of Wambui’s musings and here I fed some more, and those two blogs strengthened me through a dark season.

Now, it’s no surprise that I feel obliged to share ,to give , to muster the courage to believe in the light my Father has lit in me, to believe that Jesus has placed a cistern that flows of living water that can flow to others and heal them, to believe in Him that asks me to reach out and hold hands and form strong chords with other young women, to truly believe that His spirit can weave in these words and minister to someone.

“Self doubt has killed more dreams than failure” I recently read that quote somewhere. I know that self-doubt is self-sabotage and sometimes we doubt ourselves and doubt God’s ability to work through us, to minister healing to the whole lot in the body of Christ that are bent in pain and suffering, to speak grace and tell of His heart that aches to take under His wings the estranged and the lost
I have not a lot together, I know my imperfections and because of them I need grace everyday and it’s also because I am not perfect that I get to see His awesome power overshadow my frailties.

let’s light our candles!
