Inside Work

  Hey you! It's a been a whiiiilllllleee!๐Ÿ˜ I know, and I apologise. I just kept saying "I'll write next month", until I went 3 months without writing! The dangers of procrastination๐Ÿ˜ถ How have you been though? I trust all is well with you and yours. Today, I'd like to briefly share something that was on my heart at the beginning of the year and I've recently been reminded of. It took me a while to decide on what the topic would be as I wasn't sure how to capture it in one short phrase, but it became clear as I typed this. At the beginning of the year, we were told at my local assembly that it would be a year of wonders, and that God was set to work wonders in our lives. Of course, this got everyone excited as we anticipated the miraculous in every area of our lives. However, as I prayed that my family and I would see wonders, the Holy Spirit began to open my eyes to the fact that the wonders we were expecting wouldn't happen as many think; rather, it

Mind Limitations

  Hiya!๐Ÿค— How have you been? In the last few months, I have been drawn to the power that our minds wield over our lives. I've found out that it's easy to be yielded in our spirits, but our minds are a totally different ballgame. We tell God that He can do whatever He pleases with and through us, but, in truth, our minds are screaming "No!" This is how we limit God in our minds. God works with the capacity that we place in His hands; in this case, your mental capacity or mental space. And I'm not speaking in terms of intelligence or brilliance. It's actually more about how open you are in your mind to what God wants to do through and in you.  How big a dream are you willing to dream with God? Is there a limit to how far you can see, with God? If, for instance, you're believing God for a breakthrough in your business or career, it's very possible that your spirit has already received it but your mind is still keeping it away. It's possible that you w

Free Expert Editing for Authors and Startup Organisations

Hello! Welcome again to the blog!  I believe that your month went beautifully well -- goals were smashed, challenges were overcome, and you impacted at least one life positively. No worries if you still have some goals to smash. March isn't over yet๐Ÿ˜‰  I come with exciting news! Tia Edits is currently running a free editing program for authors (or soon-to-be authors๐Ÿ˜Ž) and startup organisations . Yes, it's absolutely free. The need for this came while I was thinking about how to contribute to startup organisations by helping them push out error-free content. I also decided to add authors to the program because, as an author myself, I know how important the editing stage is to the success of any book. The package for authors includes editing three books from three authors over a period of 6 months, while that for organisations ( startups, small businesses,  online businesses etc.) includes editing the content of 2 organisations twice weekly, over a period of 2 months.  After tw

Have you ever wondered how the negative occurrences that took place in your childhood didn't take you out? Some of us did really terrible things when we were young... I'm trying hard not to shake this table but I actually heard of someone who, while playing, locked himself up in the freezer when he was young! How did he survive it?! God alone knows!  Well, as I was saying before the diversion, some of us did terrible things when we were young but for some others, terrible things happened to us. Some were abused physically, sexually, mentally etc. in their childhood, some had a child/children out of wedlock, some were terribly ill, some experienced difficulties in learning, some had their parents abandon them, and some people (like me๐Ÿ˜‚) were rescued from 'falling' into a relationship that would have landed them where they shouldn't be. Everyone has a different story to tell, but did it ever occur to you that you're standing because somehow those things didn'

CULTIVATE THANKFULNESS

  One year ago today, I was kidnapped.  Yeah, you saw that right... KIDNAPPED.  The whole ordeal lasted for a few hours, some money had to be paid, and I had a few bruises here and there but...the testimony is that I'm here today! Rather than wonder why it had to happen at all, I choose be thankful. Oh, I'm so thankfulllll! Besides, prior to that incident, there had been many other robbery incidents where my life was at stake, but GOD! So this is me saying ABBA, KEEPER, SUSTAINER, THANK YOU! In our local parlance, PAPA YOU DO WELL!!! I'm so grateful Father!  Alright, enough of my gist๐Ÿ˜ Meanwhile, HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU!!!๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ Such a blessed and wonder-filled year lies ahead for you! Your path will drip fatness, you will be led by God's Spirit every step of the way and light will shine on your path. You won't miss a turn neither will you miss His voice. It'll be your year of precision and accuracy in Jesus' name! One thing we must do more than ever t

Purpose & Assignment (Part 2): Learning from the four Hebrew boys and Esther

Image
  Hello! Welcome to another edition of purpose and assignment ๐Ÿ˜ So, here are a few things that caught my attention as I studied Esther and the four Hebrew boys recently. I hope they are of great use to you especially in the coming year. See you at the end...๐ŸŒž ๐ŸŒฒ Gather knowledge (Dan. 1:4). In the story of the Hebrew boys, one of the criteria for the men that the king would choose to serve his government was that they had to be "well versed in all kinds of wisdom ." (KJV) It's one thing to be a master in a certain field but to be versed in ALL kinds of wisdom?This meant that they couldn't be limited to the knowledge they got from their formal education, they had to be avid readers and voracious learners. Bear in mind that this was their own purpose journey and, as such, they risked missing out on God's plan for them if they failed in this criteria.  Important Tip : This wasn't a role God could play for them, they had to do this by and for themselves. Can yo

Purpose and Assignment (Part 1): Learning 10 things from Joseph and Moses

Image
Hello! Welcome to Legacy Series! Let's dive right into learning from Joseph and Moses about purpose and assignment... ๐ŸŒ  Gen. 37:4. Did you know that Joseph's brothers not only hated him for his dreams, but also because of the way he talked ? There's a 'way' visionaries speak. You won't catch them talking down on themselves or their dreams, or even on others. They are not proud or arrogant but they are confident (we'll talk about the source of this confidence later on). They also realise that there is power in the tongue and would rather use this power positively. ๐ŸŒ  Gen. 39:7-10. Focus! Focus!! Focus!!! Distractions are real and they could be anything! Stay focused! Joseph could have been distracted by the appetite for sex just as Judah was in the previous chapter but he knew purpose was at stake. Pleasures would come later but for now, they were simply going to be distractions to him. Have you allowed something derail you from what ought to be your focus?
