Word of the week – 01.02.2021

Trust the Lord with all your heart lean not on your own understanding….

Proverbs 3:5

On Friday I received some news that I was not really ready or praying for – quite the opposite actually. And I remember feeling so crashed – I am an emotional person so I found myself in tears. I immediately talked to my husband, my mum and my small sister. During my devotion that morning as I was studying a book that is part of my devotions – the author expounded on the need to have spiritual counselors and went ahead to identify who they are and who they can be. I smiled because I realized my inner circle is doing well exactly what the author was talking about.

Anyways, so I talked to all 3 of them and the common thing they all said is ‘God knows and His ways are not our ways…but they are best ways’…..so after a while I went back to my prayer journal and I wrote that I choose to trust you God. While in a cab I found myself thinking about what it means to trust God and how can I choose to trust God even when I feel bad? It hit me that the depths of trust, the nature of trust – is revealed when things are not going our way. It’s easy to trust God when after a month of prayer He answers literally everything on your prayer list, but it’s not the same when that doesn’t happen.

In that same book – the author wrote that ‘Christians are known by their fruits’ – and it’s amazing how when I read it I was like exactly – little did I know that a few minutes later I will need to show that trusting in God is good because in the end I believe that His plans for my life are good. So I needed to plant a seed in trust and in faith that it will bear rich fruit that will reveal the depth of my relationship with God – which will stay true and be evident.

So my word for the week and for the month and just for life – is to trust God ALWAYS – even when it doesn’t make sense. When I was studying the verse I realized that trust is about the heart, and the heart decides to feed the mind so that we act in trust – whereas understanding is solely about our mind. And so as we decide to trust in God – it doesn’t have to make sense in our minds, it just has to make sense in our heart – the rest will follow!

Dear God,

We choose to trust you!


Have a blessed week and may this be a great month!

This is something I always say and strongly believe in, but it was a lesson for me in August. Sometimes in life we need people around us to pray for us, to cover us in prayer, to send us all those verses, sermons. And sometimes we need people to pray, yes

Are You Going To: Take Risks, or Walk by Faith?

“Take that risk” – that’s a phrase we hear all the time. But this got me thinking as Christians we are meant to walk in faith, and not take risks.   A risk can be described as “uncertainty about the effects of an act with respect to something that humans value”
