When I Was A Child 

Good morning,


INSECURITY

It is an uncertainty or anxiety about oneself; lack of confidence.

I was having a conversation yesterday with two of my girlies. As we spoke I heard the Holy Spirit say that “did you know that insecurities doesn’t just start from adulthood, it started from childhood.”
(I know you would say dah!)

“What is making it grow into adulthood, is the inability to stop it in its tracks.”

“These insecurities caused you to make wrong choices when you were dating the wrong men.”

“It caused you to choose the wrong friends.”

“It caused the lack of confidence in yourself.”

“Insecurity makes you feel unworthy and unwanted.”

Then He reminder me of when I was a child in year 8,(in secondary school), I used to flick my Afro like a little Caucasian or Asian girl would. Well you can’t blame me, they were the only friends I had at the time and I wanted to be and look like them. 

I thought I had to have long hair to be beautiful and fit in, and because I thought it was a cute thing to do. Though I didn’t have long hair and there wasn’t much I was flicking away from my face, I did it to feel among. 

This meant, I was not secure in myself, in my Afro hair. My mum and grandma would tell me off and laugh at me for my silliness. My mum will tell me “you are  Afro/Caribbean, love yourself and stop trying to be like others.” 

I did stop and started embracing my Afro/self.

It’s is vital as an up coming parent to identify these things in our children, speak to them and correct them. If they are not corrected it will enter into their adulthood and become bigger demons.

We can be the cause of our children’s insecurities. I once read…

“The critical inner voice is formed out of painful early life experiences in which we witnessed or experienced hurtful attitudes toward us or those close to us. As we grow up, we unconsciously adopt and integrate this pattern of destructive thoughts toward ourselves and others.

A childhood insecurity can vary from 0-10, depending on the child’s temperament. As parents we have to help our children and give them a sense of security and confidence that they can hold on to as they grow into adult life, full of joy and happiness. 

We have to set an example, don’t throw away anything they say. Make time to talk to them, set an example by showing them unconditional love. Make them know that they can come and talk to you anytime.

Overcoming insecurities as an adult starts from childhood. Let’s help our children to grow into confident and strong men and women.

As an adult if you feel insecure, go back to your childhood, look back and track back to when you noticed why and how you started feeling insecure. 

Meet with a leader in your church, or speak to someone to help you. Most importantly go on your knees and pray to God to strengthen you and to overshadow you with His love.

Philippians 4:6-7

6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Let us help ourselves and our children to put away childish things. 

God bless and have a beautiful day 😇🙏😘

Yours truly and always,

There Is A Miracle With Your Name On It 🕊

Good morning,

Psalm 77:14, You are the God who works wonders; you have made known your might among the peoples.

So sometime last week during the offering time, as I was praying over the offering, the Lord put in my heart that somebody will receive help to pay off some debts. Now obviously I was not receiving it for myself I just thought I was giving a word to somebody in the congregation.

Fast forward Monday night,as my husband and I where about to go to bed, we were listening to music videos and Tasha Cobbs came on with the song Break Every Chain

Break Every Chain by Tasha Cobbs
As I listened, I remembered so many testimonies so many people had given in church about how God came through, like unexpected money and so on. You know when people come and testify and you just never have anything to say.

As some of you know my husband is a pastor and I mightly assist him in church also. So praying, fasting and knowing the scriptures to use is not alien. I mean I do regular quiet time, I never miss church so why the delay. 

If you like sleep in the church every night, you can be the head of the church and do everything right, but you also still need to wait in line for your miracle. (That’s a lesson learnt)

As my husband went up to bed I decided to stay back and pray, then another song came up “Put A Praise On It”

Put A Praise On It by Tasha Cobbs

I started telling God indeed there is a miracle in with my name on it and I prayed for a moment and I just suddenly stoppped and just kept watching to the music video. By yesterday evening I got a phone call, someone was offering me help towards what I needed help with and I just could not believe what I was hearing.

I was extremely overwhelmed and also shocked for what the Lord has done. 

Then I said to God really??? And he said “yes there are times I move immediately and there are times you need to wait”

Sometimes our miracles come immediately and other times it delays. But there is always a reason why you have to wait another day, because there was a lesson to learn from the waiting period. 

And if we are blessed to have the miracle answered immediately, then God must know and trust you with the miracle and that was why you received it there and then. It’s called grace and unmerited favour.

Ephesians 2:8, For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.

This is my testimony I just want encourage somebody out there that there is a miracle with your name on it and it is on it’s way.

Now let the rest of my miracles start trooping in, in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen. 

Matthew 19:26, Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

Yours truly, and stay blessed 😇🙏😘💃😊

BREAK UPS

Good morning,

BREAK UPS

by Dag Heward-Mills 

READ: Matthew 19:1-9

19 And it came to pass that when Jesus had finished these sayings, He departed from Galilee and came into the region of Judea beyond the Jordan.

2 And great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them there

3 The Pharisees also came unto Him, testing Him and saying unto Him, “Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?”

4 And He answered and said unto them, “Have ye not read, that He that made them at the beginning made them male and female,

5 and said, ‘For this cause shall a man leave father and mother and shall cleave to his wife, and the two shall be one flesh’?

6 Therefore they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”

7 They said unto Him, “Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement and to put her away?”

8 He said unto them, “Moses, because of the hardness of your hearts, suffered you to put away your wives, but from the beginning it was not so.

9 And I say unto you, whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery; and whoso marrieth her who is put away doth commit adultery”.

God places the responsibility of cleaving on the man. He leaves and cleaves (glues) to his wife.

Genesis 2:24, Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.


Divorce occurs when he is not able to cleave tightly enough to become inseparable. Marriage rests on the shoulders of the man, just the same way divorce also does. 
Whatever happens in the home is the man’s responsibility, although it may not be his fault. When man fell and God came to the garden, He first called out to Adam and placed the responsibility for eating the fruit at his feet. There were no questions for the woman.
Divorce brings about many complications. God, generally, does not like broken fellowship of any sort. The concept of a broken home or broken life hurts God. An unending hurt is inflicted (Proverbs 17:14). A bitter personality is created (Proverbs 18:14). There is a permanent break up of relationship/fellowship (Proverbs 18:19).
Separation is the termination of a commitment with emotional involvement. Divorce is legalized separation. Do not make a marriage vow if you do not intend to keep it (Ecclesiastes 5:4, 5).


Be blessed and let us continue in love. 😇🙏😘

Why Does It Hurt?

Good morning,

I believe you are all well. Didn’t feel like posting today but kept being prompted to write this.

WHY DOES IT HURT?


When someone goes through a heartbreak or break up, it hurts because of the level of investments the person made while in the relationship. 

  • Investments will cost you
  • Investment is the action or process of investing for profit.
  • Investments can end up being at a great loss.

The type of relationship investments are in two categories, Physical and Emotional investment. 
1.) Physical investments are like

  • Cooking,
  • Cleaning
  • Spending time
  • Money spent
  • Giving your body
  • Buying of gifts

2.) Emotional investments

  • When you give your body, emotions are released, attached and left behind.
  • The nurturing
  • The caring.
  • Complete surrendered of feelings 
  • The love given to the person.

When you make an investment, you have to be ready for the risks that comes with it. 

The ability to understanding the risk, means you have to be able to identify your own attitude towards the relationship. By identifying the different types of risk, you can then pick up tips for minimising the chances of things going wrong.

This is why I constantly advice that try not to get carried away and do all these investments too early into the relationship. 

If you do, try and do them at small doses. Try and be sure the other party is also investing in the same quantity as you are.

The funny thing is when you do get married you won’t even practice half of what you do while courting. 

While courting an average girl is trying to show she can be a good wife, so that she will be chosen by the guy. 

Be yourself, he should be able to see those traits in you without going all out. 

Do not over invest until you are certain of the outcome of your investment. 

“LOVE IS A GREAT AND COSTLY INVESTMENT AND A GREAT RISK TO TAKE”.

Psalm 147:3, He heals the broken-hearted and bandages their wounds.

I pray for every broken heart to be healed in Jesus name. I pray you will learn to love yourself and build back the confidence and self worth you posses and deserve as a child of God in Jesus name. Amen.

Have a great day! 😇🙏😘
