November

14 November 2017
Don't forget that you're living a new life.

Instead of writing how my November went, I want to write words of encouragement!
-
As I’m writing this, it’s only 14 November, two weeks had gone by pretty quickly. I started this month with gratitude and a refill of grace and love for the work I get to do at work. I genuinely feel that that itself was an overflow of October. October had been tough, tougher that I expected it would be.

Sometimes you feel like giving up on having faith that things can be better, that what you see is what you’re gonna have from now on. That’s such a scary thought, I don’t want to believe that what I see (a puddle of mess) is what I’ll have for the rest of my life. 

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen. – Hebrews 1:1 (NJV)

Cling onto the faith that made you new.  Hold fast to the truth that the world doesn’t define us but Christ alone. Press in with your prayers knowing that He has begun His good works as you speak to Him about your worries.
-
I pray a lot.
As in I mumble a lot to Him.

See your life as a form of worship to God. On good days, I do that very well, giving thanks to the Lord for all things in my life. On bad days, I just want to turn off that radio and cut off all comms with Him.

Sometimes, praying in words stresses me too. Like I’m repeating my circumstances in my mind. Yes, I commit all that to God but sometimes after praying, I still feel that tinge of bitterness.

So I pray in tongues.

Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ – 2 Corinthians 10:5 (NKJV).

Praying in tongues is how I bring my thoughts into captivity to the obedience of Christ. Try it, in the midst of thinking about your worries, finances, work or relationships, start praying in tongues in your mind or praying out loud. Immediately your worries of the world stop spreading within your mind, and you focus on the heavenly language that God our Father has gifted us to have an intimate conversation that Him.

Praying in tongues is the closest I feel to Him at times and I’m so thankful that  I find my way back to Jesus each time I pray in tongues.

-
Remind me that Jesus is ever-present and that He is closer than the air I breathe.

Jubilee, My Restoration

This is great. This has became a biweekly update. I'll be publishing this once I finish up. God has exceeded my expectations and answered my prayers in many ways this year. He has impressed me with His mighty works and blessed my heart exceeding abundantly over the past two weeks of November and I feel so undeserving. 

I'm excited about Christ and unashamed to express it. 

Truly, never give up praying and talking to Him about your needs, wants, hopes and wishes. If you care about these things in your heart, trust that it mattered to Him in a way you cannot possibly comprehend. Because He was willing to give up His only Son for you. (mind blown)
No man is willing to sacrifice his son for you to live. 

But God is no man. He is the lover of our soul.

Over these two weeks, I wanted to get myself out of a certain situation and I've been praying about it. Trust it. Even though I know in my heart God is stretching me and He wants to work in me. Woah, but I'm so stubborn. And that's tiring to be honestly. Letting go is never easy. Losing control is like losing the game. 

But I want to let go and I find Jesus in His Words. 

Do not be aftraid or discouraged because of this vast army. 
For the battle is not yours, but God's. 
2 Chronicles 20:15

2017 isn't over and is not too late to ask for your restoration.
