Psalm 118:8-9; quote by Martin Luther It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Ephesians 3:20 NLT

The work that the Lord has began in me, He shall surely complete it in Jesus Christ mighty name Amen Philippians 1:6 ESV And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.

Lessons on CHANGE

○ In the church – change your ways of doing things, your behavior and your entire way of thinking base it on the word of God
○ In view of others – where you have messed up ask for forgiveness and change your actions should show repentance is key – when others have wronged you – forgive them and move on because each day has it own troubles
○ In view of relationships – in your home i.e your spouse your children or your parents or your siblings or your in-laws or at your workplace. Whether it’s your wife, your husband, your sister, your brother, your mom, your dad, your mom in-law, your father in-law or your boss, your colleague – don’t expect them to change when the change must first begin with you changing your attitude your ways of thinking, move away from negativity and seek positive ways of dealing with issues affecting you and your loved ones, change your ways of always pointing a finger at the other person while 3 more fingers are pointing at your at that same time
○ In view of a post I received on heritage day to make a change in the world – it all starts with you in your small world your society, your community, your school, your church, your workplace, your city, your country before you can conquer the world. Little does much because it is the little effort that add up to much results. Remember you are not living for yourself alone but also your surroundings.

Now I see the bigger picture of what change needs to happen for all of us – Remember it is never about the other person but it all starts with you and don’t forget to invite God ! Be blessed. By Thami Manamela

Why worry

○ Worrying yourself busy trying to figure out everything and trying to understand why things happen a certain way?
○ Just leave it “yekela” you are wasting your precious time.
○ Do something worth your time.
○ Simply because somethings weren’t meant to be figured out.
○ Some things were meant to cause confusion anyways “vele”

I hope this will help you loosen up and stop over thinking things.

Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? 
Matthew 6:27 NLT

Why worry

Why do you keep worrying yourself all the time – Stop worrying.

○will worry help you solve your problems?
○will worry pay your bills?
○will worry help you love yourself and love others?
○will worry help you get better?

No instead worry will affect your thinking capacity. It will imprison you. It will affect your health. It will distract you from important things to do. It will limit your areas of growth.

Live freely because life is free for you to live!!!

A prayer of a wife for husband

All that a woman wants as a wife is:

  1. to see her marriage prosper
  2. to see her family overcome against all odds
  3. to be her husband’s best friend
  4. to be the best mom to her children
  5. to be the best support to her husband

She never want to see her marriage fail and her husband fail or even see him drown in his own fears that’s the greatest challenge any wife could ever endure.

The best remedy is to cover your husband in prayer and ask God to help him over come his own fears.


Do not be anxious about anything but in every situation by prayer and petition with thanksgiving present your requests to God and the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard?  Philippians 4: 6-7 

Lets us pray

Lord I pray for my husband. I pray that you’ll rescue him from his fears and challenges of life, from negative thoughts that consume his mind.

Father help him not to be anxious anything but in everything give you praise and thanksgiving.

Lord may you strengthen him mentally, emotionally, financially and physically that he may draw strength from you.

Lord I pray that you bless every area of his work. Lord sustain him from all the negative impact from work i.e. management, his colleagues and a stressful work environment.

Lord may you order every step of his life. so that his position of being a great husband, a great father and a great employee is not affected by all the challenges that he may be facing.

Thank you Lord for your blessings and for for hearing my prayer as a wife for my husband in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen

Focus on You

You are never too late to start focusing on your well being, self love and appreciation, your career.

Review your whole life is it what you were intend to be.

Do you look back and say you did all that you could to love yourself?

Did you make time for your self and to focus on your well being?

Did put yourself first when you had to?

will you say you are proud of who you have become?

Never allow yourself to be convinced otherwise or against your true self.

Never accept to be guilt tripped when you give yourself time and self love and appreciation and be misled with selfishness.

start focusing on yourself because no one will look after your interests if you don’t.

Love yourself first and the world will follow suit.

Appreciate yourself first and the whole world will do the same.

Put yourself first and the whole world will know they come after you.

When you pray

○ You pray for situations in your life to change and yet your heart is not ready to receive it

○ You pray for your husband to change yet in your heart you hate him for all the wrong things he has done, you allow bitterness, anger and hatred to fill your heart and it’s blocking love to flow into your heart and peace and the joy of the Lord to fill your heart.

○ You pray for your children to change from doing wrong things yet your heart is not ready to receive them – you can’t even hug your child and you can’t even tell him/her you love them and how proud you are of them and their great achievements.

○ You pray for your boss to change and your situation at work to change but your attitude has not changed and your heart is not even ready to receive it. You speak bad of them, you don’t delivery good work and you do not come in on time and you leave before time, you always absent from work and you do not step up, come in early or on time put in the extra effort to your work as though you working for the Lord.

Be diligent in all that you do whether for the other person or whether for yourself and for your career.

Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, But the Lord weighs the hearts.
Proverbs 21:2 NKJV

○In closing the Lord weighs the heart, when you pray for your husband, children, your boss or whatever situation you want to see change open up your heart allow live, light, laughter, joy and happiness and peace of the Lord to fill your heart and the Lord will bring about the change you want to see happening in your life.

Now we exhort you, brethren, warn those who are unruly, comfort the fainthearted, uphold the weak, be patient with all. See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all. Rejoice always, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 
I Thessalonians 5:14‭-‬16‭, ‬18 NKJV

○I am not saying it will be easy but press on, pray without ceasing believe in the Lord and He is a God of His word,He keeps his promises

Raging Hormones

Sometimes as a human born of the spirit of God but living in the flesh – I get those raging hormones and that I don’t even know how to handle them or how to respond in some instances but because I am a Christian of God and I have seen the light

I just think of the things that uplift my spirit and I keep myself busy with things that motivate me positively and meditate on some scriptures sometimes that just hit the right spot at the right time – just as I need them.

So don’t give up your joy because the joy of the Lord is our strength.

I pray that you find your joy in the must o your confusion and in theist of your pain. I have found my joy in the Lord and I always get positive thoughts on guidance from scriptures
