Finding my worth

You know what?

I have come to realise that as women...young women, it is very important that we understand our worth. As Daddy's Princess, you are far more precious than rubies. You are a pearl of great price who must not throw herself down for pigs to feed on. Do not be the ring on the snout of a pig... you will only be put in a sludge...always.
This morning, on my way to work, I came to an understanding that as an individual, when you know your worth and are unwilling to settle for less, you will be amazed at the incredible and unimaginable options available for you to choose from. I know that the first thing that will come to mind for some of you will be concerning the choice of spouse but when I say this, I mean same for other choices we may have to make in future... like choosing to come to Ghana to develop your country rather than choosing to work in a developed country to make so much money.
Even on the matter of being single and choosing a spouse, Sinach said something I so lo…

PAYING THE PRICE

Hello there,

It has been a while :)
How are you doing today? 
I am blessed by God's Grace. 

On my way to work today, I was listening to a sermon a friend sent me by Pastor Michael Essel on "Maintaining spiritual fervor". The audio brought my attention to a question I had been asking myself for months... "what is this price I must pay?"

You see, since a while back, I have heard preachers say that there is a price to pay in order to grow in Christ. Yes yes, Jesus Christ paid it all but I (or we...) have a role to play also. 

My understanding from what Pastor Michael Essel said is that being new Christians, Holy Spirit has been given to us in full measure but as we grow in our Christian journey, we have to be intentional about Holy Spirit finding or having full expression in our bodies/lives. 

...and this takes work... and a lot of sacrificing to make that happen...

This sacrifice...or price varies per individual... we all know what our prices are... if we will be honest …

Rejecting the King I

"Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah,  And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.  But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the Lord .  And the Lord said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them
1 Samuel 8:4‭-‬7 KJV"
I remember when the above Scripture text came alive in me and Daddy (God) gave me the privilege of experiencing how He felt when the people of Israel rejected Him because they wanted to be like the other surrounding nations. I felt so sad. I heard His words and I felt the sadness behind each word.
Yesterday, I went for choir rehearsals (yes, by God's Grace, I have braced my fears). Something happened that night that has changed…

CALIBRATE!!!

My office printer calibrates more than twice a day and it does so, sometimes, to the displeasure of some of my colleagues at the office. 
I have a friend, his name is Eben, and at least once a week, he posts the word, "Calibrate" on his whatsApp status. For a while, I was curious about what he meant whenever he posted that word on his status...yet, I never asked him. Once, I look up the meaning on calibrate in the dictionary...and I found this: mark (a gauge or instrument) with a standard scale of readings.

It was then that I understood why the printer always calibrated several times in the course of the day. In simple terms, "it was checking itself in order to function appropriately". Well, I can't say why my friend Eben uses the word oftentimes (because I still haven't asked him). 
For me, using this word, "Calibrate" which I also post on my status a couple of times is a reminder for me to check myself and re-align myself spiritually and emotiona…

This 'thing' called LOVE

My love journey has been quite a ride.
I find the gift of writing very therapeutic and considering how unsettling these past days have been, I am inclined to pour everything out through my words with the hope that maybe, I can get some closure on all these... plus, help someone make the right choice.
Enjoy the read...
My bestfriend comes to me and tells me he is embittered towards women because his girlfriend had shattered his heart. I mean, not knowing what to do at the age of 15, I told him I had a crush on him but the reason why I was unable to tell him was because he was already attached to someone else.
(I said that because I didn't know what else to say and I wanted to cheer him up... that was stupid... I know)
Over the years, I tried to come out of this relationship because I knew I didn't love him... I didn't love him as a matter of choice and when I did tell him I loved him, it was more about the feelings and nothing else. On those days that I didn't feel lik…

Thank You Lord: I am not wood!

Hello there,
It has been a while. Within this period, Sharing Life has launched its t-shirt line and I  must say, they are a beauty! Thanks to Derick Ehla of OM4J for the push. Praise the Lord!  Also, the vision for Sharing Life still is taking shape and we give all the Glory to Jesus Alone. Praise the Lord once more!
Within this period also, I must say that I have and perhaps still am experiencing some fluttering in my heart. I tell you 😓. Well what can I say? I have feelings too and it is a blessing knowing that I am not wood. Hallelujah.
As you (or most of you) know, I am single by God's Grace and I must say that it is a good place to be. I enjoy my company and I am a happy child by God's Grace. Praise the Lord! But, for some time now, It looks like my heart has been speeding in many directions. I guess it is part of growth to have such feelings. I mean, the thought of having a beloved who will become my "I DO" looks good and all this leads me to wonder..."Babe, …

My journey with Holy Spirit

This might probably be the longest I will ever publish. Here we go...
Senior High School

I started my relationship with Holy Spirit in St. Louis Senior High School. At that time, my father was going through a bit of a struggle and I didn't want to be a burden to him. I had made a terrible decision to combine my chopbox with a friend's and when my provisions finished, I couldn't call home. I was sad and I remembered that daddy had told me that if I ever wanted to change and be a better human, I should start by reading the "Book of Proverbs".  I came across Wisdom and I prayed for that Friendship and then someway somehow, I believed that I was never alone and that I had a Friend with me and that was when I starting fellowshiping with Holy Spirit.    
Prior to this, I remember when I was in class 6, I heard Someone share His heart with me. He asked me, "Why is it that when people have problems, they tell their friends about it and then their friends give them bad ad…
