Getting to know my why!

When I started blogging, I knew that God wanted me to,as He had told me both directly and indirectly (through people) to share my faith. However, I struggled with the why. It took a lot of courage to decide to just start and believe that somewhere along the line I will know why. And so I started – but was not consistent (hello life). Last year, I initially took a break because I had a lot on my plate (work, fellowship), and so I was not able to give it my all. Then, when I was ready to start again life happened, and I moved from a normal pregnancy to a high-risk pregnancy, so blogging was nowhere in my mind.

Last year and even the past two months I have really battled with whether I am ready to blog again. And I had to keep reminding myself that it wasn’t about me, it is not about me, and it will never be about me – IT IS ALL ABOUT GOD! So I opened my heart and ears to what God would want me to do. The past four weeks God has literally been revealing my why to me, He has affirmed me – it has been such an encounter that words would not do it justice. I have cried, I have prayed, I have thanked Him but also asked Him if I am really ready in equal measure. But this week, my heart started accepting my why and accepting to be used by God with a much deeper meaning now.

I have always heard people say, “My purpose was birthed in pain,” and I never used to get it. When I launched the blog it was all pretty, nice photoshoot, congratulatory messages – but my purpose was birthed in pain. And so here I am ready to walk this journey with meaning, understanding that this is part of my why. All I have is trust in Him to carry me through this journey and to get all the glory!

I pray that I am able to be consistent and stay consistent and that my life and words will be a true reflection of God.

To forgive does not mean to forget (Reference scripture Matthew 26:31-35 & John 21:15-17) The reference scripture is the story of Peter. In Matthew is when Jesus told Peter that He would deny Him, and in John is when Jesus told him to feed His sheep. This was after He set

Word of the week – 28.02.2022

One of the things I have set to fully understand this year is forgiveness. I have a tendency of holding onto things for such a long time and thinking that I have forgiven simply because I convince myself to “let go” – but that is far from reality. So, early this
