July 2020

July: arguably the best month has arrived, yet I’m still mentally in pre-COVID March. You may or may not feel the same, but I urge you to switch your mentality. God is in the business of turning your disappointments to divine appointments; Your hurt into hope; Your anger into abiding peace. Open your eyes and perceive the new thing God is doing. Don’t remain stuck in the past or in the old way of doing things – this places God in a box and He cannot be confined by our human wisdom & comprehension. So delight yourself in the Lord and He shall surely give you the desires of your heart. God can still redeem that which you “thought” you lost.

Have a Jubilant July!

June 2020

Unbelievable to think we are already in June. It is natural to feel emotionally depleted after the whirlwind of events we constantly face but don’t be disheartened. Jesus said “In this world you’ll have trouble but take courage: I have overcome the world.” So, I urge you to lay ALL your burdens down at Jesus’ feet so He can fill you up with His perfect peace. Hold onto the promise that God heals the broken-hearted & binds up their wounds. My prayer is that in this crooked world we will shine bright & not let the darkness steal our joy & hope.

May 2020

Although we are living in uncertain times there is one thing we can be sure of – God remains faithful. In this month, make God your focal point. If we gaze too much on our current circumstances we become dizzy & feel sick, so divert your attention from the noise of the world (news & the like) and tune into the Living Word of God that states “And it came to Pass”. Our struggles, pain, worries and concerns haven’t come to stay but to build our character. God is not a man that He should lie so saturate your mind with scripture & good report.

Have a Mindful May!

April 2020

You wake up on this April Fool’s Day to find out Corona Virus isn’t a prank after all 😭 tragic. We are in this world as a ship at sea and the circumstances around us make us prone to be tossed around so without an anchor shipwreck is imminent. But I’d like to ask: Will your anchor hold in the storms of life? Where have you placed your Hope? Hope is the anchor for our lives so it’s essential we place it in a force that is strong & steady – The Rock of Ages. There is no reason to be downcast, worried or defeated when your Hope is in God. Place your hope & confidence in God’s Word and your strength will be renewed.

Have a well Anchored April! x

March 2020

Waiting is a foreign concept in today’s fast-paced society, so when we are forced to “Be Still”, it’s frustrating. You may be waiting for some good news, change in circumstance or status or simply waiting for a day/event whatever it is – the wait is worthwhile! Just like a mother needs to wait 9 months to see her baby you need to wait. When a baby is removed prematurely from the womb there are associated issues; so don’t be in a hurry. Waiting time is not detrimental it is developmental! God is transforming you into the best version of yourself.

Have an Ah-Mazing March.

February 2020

No matter what stage you’re in right now don’t underestimate its potential by obsessing over where you want to be or what you want to achieve. Don’t be fixated on the seemingly insurmountable mountains ahead that you end up missing the current blessings & lessons from God. Don’t focus on the storm ahead and miss the learning opportunities amongst the waves. 🌊

Have a Fulfilling February!

Jan 2020

I declare that in 2020, God’s goodness & mercy shall follow you through all the days of this year & decade. May your life be radically transformed by God’s blessings that people wouldn’t recognise you. Most of us are spiritually short-sighted; our vision of the future is blurry. So in 2020 entrust the unknown future to a known God – the one whose promises are YES & AMEN. Let His Word & promises be the laser eye surgery for you to see clearly from His perspective.

Have a Prosperous New Year!

December 2019

Welcome to the final month of 2019!
You may have been hard pressed on every side, perplexed, persecuted, struck down in the past year but through God you are still alive, not crushed, not in despair, not abandoned and not destroyed – there is HOPE. God says in Isaiah – “I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born.” So align yourself with this promise & see how God will work miraculously.

Have a Delightful December & see you soon in 2020!

November 2019

Late in the midnight hour God’s going to turn it around. On numerous occasions in the bible there is action at midnight. As we get nearer to the end of the year I want to encourage you that GOD IS A GOD OF SUDDENLY. We can’t predict when He will show up but we can be certain that He will show up & turns things around in your favour. Trust that God will suddenly show up and turn your situation around for the better – Don’t lose heart.

Have a Notable November!!

October 2019

As we enter the last few months of 2019, it is easy to ponder on the mistakes, wrong turns and setbacks of the year. However, Isaiah 43:19; urges us to forget the past defeat and discouragement in order to clearly see the new thing God is doing in our lives. Make this declaration: I declare that God is about to blow my mind and turn my mourning to dancing.

Have an Outstanding October! xx
