Your failure is not a setback it’s an opportunity to bounce back

Proverbs 24:16 The righteous may fall seven times but still get up, but the wicked will stumble into trouble.

I have discovered failure is not bad, it’s the opportunity for you to grow and better yourself. Failure helps you to recognize the areas in your life that you need to evolve. Do not be afraid to fail because failure perfects you into the person you are destined to be. The more you fail you will acquire the tools that you need to succeed. The most successful people in the world have failed over and over and over again until they got it. There were many Biblical leaders who failed, but did they dwell on them? No they learned from their mistakes and kept on moving forward. Determination and failure leads to success. You fail and you get up and you try again.

Many times you have been so afraid to fail because you are scared of what your friends and family are going to say. You have allowed shame to fill you up and have ended up thinking that you are not good enough ,you fill like a loser which is not true. True failure is not even trying to get back up, but just quitting. God is always near and if you fall He’ll pick you up and dust you off. If God closes a door don’t worry because He has an even better one open for you. Spend time with Him in prayer and allow Him to guide your path.

Fear of failure has been the greatest stumbling block against your destiny and you achieving your dreams because you have been so afraid to fail that you have not been able to learn from your failures and be the best . I want you to always remember this, failure comes to help you be better than you were before. So let go of shame, disappointments, setbacks, let go of the negative voices around you and keep pressing forward and try again.

“A failure is not a loss. It’s a gain. You learn. You change. You grow.”-Michael Barata:

So embrace failure, entertain it, don’t run from it because failure is going to sharpen you and it’s gonna pull out the best out of you. You cannot succeed in life if you’ve not experienced certain failures in your life. In order to achieve a certain goal you going to have to get used to the thing called failure because failure will help you be the best version of yourself.

Don’t be afraid of it. You cannot be good at something without failing at it first. Even the great of the greats will tell you that they failed before they become millionaires or successful. They failed so many times and learned from there failures and that was the best thing that ever happened to them and caused them to be successful.

So I encourage you today don’t be afraid of failure, when you fail get back up again and try again don’t lose heart just remind yourself and know that even the great people we look up to failed before they became successful and achieved their dreams.

Your failure doesn’t mean you won’t achieve your dreams. The most people that have failed in life have been the most successful. So don’t let your your setback destroy you but bounce back from that setback and that means when you fail get back up again and keep pushing forward keep dreaming,keep pursuing those dreams until you see them come to pass.

Do not give up no matter how many times you fail, get back up again and try again because this thing called life you’re going to have to fail and fail so many times until you get it. The Bible says:

Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

The other day I was watching a video on YouTube that the actor Will Smith posted. He was talking about something so profound and powerful about failure and he said…….

Failure is a massive part of being able to be successful. You have to get comfortable with failure because that’s where the lessons are. And practice is controlled failure. So fail early, fail often ,fail forward- Will Smith

Just listening to him speak just took off that burden we always feel when we fail at something. Many times we get so hard on ourselves when we fail. We get so frustrated of the failure instead of learning from it. The more I have matured and gained wisdom I have realized it’s ok to fail. The secret to success is not letting your failure determine your future but it’s Embracing the lessons failure brings and learn from them and try again and win. When you fail always trust God will your life and know he got your back and He will never leave you nor forsake you. Have faith in God and get back on your feet.

Always remember this “Your failure is not a setback it’s an opportunity to bounce back”.

Fear the dream killer

Fear is the enemy of your dreams. It’s that silent voice that pushes you to loose your passion for life, for your destiny and makes you loose belief of who you are. It’s a powerful weapon that Satan uses against your dreams, goals and destiny. The enemy will stop at nothing until he destroys you, your dreams and anything that that God has called you to do. The bible says:

Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour 1 peter 5:8.

Always remember God overcame fear on your behalf, so you don’t have to leave in fear anymore. I know so much has happened in your life that has caused you to be anxious, worried and fearful but Jesus destroyed that curse when He sacrificed His life for you at Calvary. Fear cannot hold you captive anymore because you are protected by the blood of Jesus.

“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

It’s very key that you wage war against the spirit of fear and destroy it from its root in Jesus name so that it doesn’t sabotage your life and destiny. You have to stay constantly in Spiritual warfare against the spirit of fear because the enemy is working day and night coming up with strategic tricks/ways to try to destroy you.

For though we live in the world, we donot wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:3-5

You need to be more strategic in your prayer life. God has given you the power to destroy the enemy. Pray without ceasing because every weapon you need to destroy the enemy God has already given it to you.

Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.” Luke 10:19

When the enemy fills your mind with fear resist him with the word of God. Fear comes to stop you from advancing in God. But you can be free from its stronghold in your mind. You can take authority over fear when it tries to rise up against your soul.

Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Eph. 6:11-17

So every time the feelings of fear and anxiety try to come against you, your dreams and destiny declare the following scriptures upon your life and feed your mind with the word of God daily. Thats how you overcome fear!!!

Psalm 23:4

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”

2 Timothy 1:7 

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power and love and self-control.”

Isaiah 41:10

“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Deuteronomy 31:6

Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.

Joshua 1:3-9

I promise you what I promised Moses: “Wherever you set foot, you will be on land I have given you … No one will be able to stand against you as long as you live. For I will be with you as I was with Moses. I will not fail you or abandon you. Be strong and courageous, for you are the one who will lead these people to possess all the land I swore to their ancestors I would give them. Be strong and very courageous .

Psalm 27:1

The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?

Psalm 56:3-4

When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?

Isaiah 41:10

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Isaiah 41:13

For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.

Isaiah 54:4

Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed; Neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame; For you will forget the shame of your youth, And you will not remember the reproach of your widowhood anymore.

Matthew 10:26

Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.

Declare this prayer:

Father, in the name of Jesus I come to You and ask you to forgive me for giving in to feelings of fear. I rebuke the spirit of fear that is working to steal my dreams, destiny, entrap me, steal my faith, rob my peace, joy and feel me with anxiety, in Christ’s name. I choose faith, trust, and love. I fear and trust the Lord only, in the name of the Christ. Amen.

Peace beyond your understanding in 2018

This world as we know it with so much going on it’s easy to be distracted, it’s easy to feel like things are not going as planned or many things are happening around you that rattle your heart and take away your peace.

It’s very important to have the peace of God that surpasses all understanding and this comes by having a daily relationship with God. The world’s peace comes from material things or when things are going well then they have peace but when things take the wrong turn their peace quickly dissipates. In the Bible Jesus makes a distinct statement about peace… He says “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives” (John 14:27). God is here to give you peace in 2018 that no man or material things will give you. Whatever had tried to steal your peace will be no more in Jesus name.

If you like me I believe that you have encountered moments in your life where you were experiencing so much joy, when things were going according to plan and you’re excited but then then you get caught up in a situation where by your environment was not excited for you or you were surrounded by people you never knew were against you until you started to experiencing joy peace and love.

As those good things started to manifest in your life the people around tried to come against your life because you were experiencing so much Joy and there were jealous and couldn’t not stand your joy and they did anything they could to try to steal your joy and peace away .

If this is you then this message is yours. Never give anyone power to control how you feel, your emotions or in this case never give anybody power to control your joy and your peace that they did not give you in the first place. But always trust God for your peace and joy.The Bible says in Proverbs 3:5-6-Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

Whenever things happen in your life that are beyond your control and takeaway your peace before you start sharing your problems with everyone please walk in wisdom and know not everyone is for you and take your concern and problems to God in prayer and He will give you perfect peace that goes beyond all your understanding. The Bible says in Philippians 4:7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

If you have been anxious, worried and have no peace today God wants to give peace beyond understanding. God wants to guard your heart and protect you from anything toxic that would try to take your peace away.

I know many times life can be overwhelming and full of the unexpected but take courage no matter what your going through and Know you are not alone in this . God is with you, He said, He will never leave you nor forsake you. So be still and know that His God. Rest in the Power of His presence and He will give you perfect peace.

In 2018 no weapon formed against you shall prosper because God is going to protect you from your enemies and bless you beyond your wildest dreams. Peace be still over everything that has tried to destroy you. You are alive today because God has brought you this far to bless you and not to forsake you. You are more than a conqueror and the peace of God is upon you. This year is yours to experience the greatness and goodness of God’s blessings over your life.

Happy New year!!!🎆🎊

Greater is the God that is in you

Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.” 
1 John 4:4

Many times when we are going through challenges we find it difficult to focus on the greatness of God’s power. When situations overwhelmed us we tend to focus more on whats going wrong instead of being grateful of what God has already done.

I know is hard when you are facing trials and tribulations to trust God and believe that it’s all going to work out. In the midst of trials, hurt, lack and stress of things not going the way you want them to or according to your plan thats when you are supposed to pray to God and trust Him because He is your present Help on times of need.

God is a safe place to hide, ready to help when we need him. We stand fearless at the cliff-edge of doom, courageous in seastorm and earthquake, Before the rush and roar of oceans,  the tremors that shift mountains. Psalms 46:1-3                                                                              

So don’t allow the devil to whisper lies in your ears and mind and convince you that God is not on your side. Whenever your facing difficult situation they enemy will always try so hard to cause you to doubt yourself. The devil loves to play mind games on your emotions especially when you are very vulnerable and believing God for a miracle.                                Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour: 1 Peter 5:8

That’s why you are to equip yourself with the word of God and ask God for strength and protection. So don’t believe the lies of the enemy, believe God because He Will never leave you nor for sake.

The God in you is greater than anything your facing right now. No matter what your going through God is greater than any storm, depression, delays, financial lack, every loss. You may have been believing God for something or a promise from God for years and it has not come to pass yet and you are on the verge of giving up, please don’t because God has not given up on you. His timing is the best.

If God has made you a promise, believe me, it WILL come to pass! Delay does not mean denial! A prayer not answered yet, is not a denied prayer. God promises are not denied, they are fulfilled.

Everything you have endured God has been perfecting and preparing you for the best and prosperous destiny that’s a head of you. When God is living on the inside of you, you can overcoming anything and destroy the enemy with the power of Jesus Christ. In the name of Jesus you have the power to destroy the devil and his mind games because you have the king of kings living on the in side of you and in Him you always have the victory.

In Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord

Don’t allow the enemy to still your power. The devil is against your dreams, your happiness, destiny and purpose he doesn’t wants to see you successful all he wants is for you is to fail so that he can rejoice in your failures and use them against you and make you believe that you are worthless.

The devil is working day and night to destroy you. Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8So trust in God and not your problems or failures but total trust in God and His greatness that is living inside you.Whenever your facing challenges trust in the greatness of God within and resist the enemy and he will flee and he will not come near your dwelling. 

Whenever you are feeling less than , overwhelmed , overpowered, feeling like giving up , instead of mediating on thoughts of defeat read the word of God, let it fill your soul and meditate on it because its a powerful tool against the enemy . You are great and you are going to achieve the desires of your heart and fulfill your dreams because the great God is living in you. For God Says…Behold, I give you the authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and upon all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you. -Luke 10:19

6 Ways on How to walk in your purpose!

When God created us, He placed purpose in the inside of us. As we were created we were predestined for greatness. As you are walking in  your daily life haven’t you seen someone who is living in their purpose and you got inspired. When someone is living their purpose its a beautiful thing to see. 

Purpose is not for the select few, its for all of us, but its going to be up to us to purse it and activate it. When you realize your purpose you will exude happiness. Whenever you are walking in your purpose and you are doing what you are created to do you will experience true bliss and freedom.

If you haven’t found your purpose yet, don’t worry you will, because its your birthright , you where born for this. You are a world changer and you where created for greatness and I believe your going to find it.

Personally I remember years back asking God what my purpose in life was, I used to feel a calling in my spirit that I was called to do so much more and make an impact in peoples lives. I didn’t want to live my life doing the same thing, same agenda without making a difference. So as I asked God about it He started to reveal to me these things that I’m going to share with you that have enabled me to walk in my purpose and I hope they will help you to.

jungle & river trails

1. Listen to your gifts, skills and talents

You have to listen to your gifts and pay close attention to the things you are good at because most of the times your purpose lies in the things you are passionate about that give you total freedom and ease. Also pay close attention to what your friends, family and co-workers say you are good at. Sometimes people on the outside tend to see the potential in you that you never thought you got. So use those relationships to help you identify your gifts and purpose.

2.Change your perception

Many times we ask our selves questions about what we are called to do and we keep going in circles and never get anything done. The thing is, you are to redirect your mind and change your perception about who you are because it will change your perspective and open you up to an abundance of creative ideas. You will discover dreams in you that you didn’t know existed. That will create a passion with in you to search and do something great and meaningful. Use the scenes from your life and begin to visualize yourself as this person you’ve been trying to manifest. Whatever it is don’t limit yourself. When you do that you will discover your purpose and when you do you will feel a peace about it and that will propel you to move forward in your destiny.

3. Pray for direction

When you can’t seem to figure out what you where called to do trust and believe in the one that created you in the first place and instilled purpose in you and trusted you enough to walk in it and fulfill your destiny. Pray to God and ask Him to guide you and give you clarity in your pursuit and grant you wisdom and understanding to know exactly what you where called to do. He will answer your prayer. The bible says we have not because we ask not. So don’t live your life in the dark without getting God in the middle of it. Trust me it will be worth it.when you trust God with your purpose and destiny.

4. Live beyond your comfort zone

Stretch yourself and do something you have never done before , something that is not familiar and you will learn something new that will make a great impact on your life. Stretching yourself will help you unlock your hidden potential. So choose to do something different everyday you will discover more about yourself and you will realize there is more to you than you thought. You will discover that your thought process will change and you will have space enough to dream big.

5. Make a positive change with your gift.

Once you have discovered your purpose use your gifts to change and impact peoples lives. Once you share your purpose with others you will find it more rewarding, fulfilling and it will give you great joy. So I encourage you to use your gifts to bless others and allow it to be your mission seeing other people happy with what God has gifted you with. Don’t be afraid to take action and follow your heart to walk in the purpose and the destiny God has given you.

6. Take the limits off of you once and for all

Whatever limitations you have heard over the years that have hindered you from pursing your purpose its time to let go. Allow yourself to dream and visualize the person and the life you want to live. No more second guessing, doubting your purpose. You are worth it and deserve to live a life of meaning and purpose. The possibilities for you are endless. You can do this!

By practicing the above steps everyday they will change and transform your life. I have witnessed this in my own live that I am seeing the vision of the person I’m becoming,  I am confident and I know what God has created me to do. I am walking in my purpose  and it has given me the greatest fulfillment and I can’t wait to see what else unfolds. Seeing other people blessed , living their purpose and fulfilling their destiny gives me great joy. You can walk in your purpose to.

Tips on how to stay calm and peaceful

Lately I have encountered a lot of things, disappointments and situations that have been trying to take my peace away. And some days where better than others . Then I got on my knees and prayed and said Lord I don’t want to feel this way.

I was feeling anxious and overwhelmed by what was happening then the Spirit of the lord reminded me not to be anxious for anything and that encouraged me. And I was reminded of the scripture in the Bible that says in Philippians 4:6-7Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

God was reminding me to be grateful and Not to be anxious and He would give me peace that surpasses all my understanding.

If you needing peace today in the midst of chaos and you’ve been feeling anxious and overwhelmed God is saying trust Him and He will give you peace beyond all understanding.

Sometimes it’s hard to understand why things happen in our lives the way they do but always remember God is in control of anything that you are facing and whatever is trying to still your joy. Just remember whatever your going through is the foundation of great and mighty things coming your way.

~Here are some of the tips that I have been practicing that have helped me stay calm and peaceful and I know they will help you to~

Pray when anxiety strikes

When you are feeling anxious, overwhelmed and have no peace pray and surrender you feelings and emotions to God and He will fill you up with the Spirit of peace and calm every storm in your life.

Read and meditate on God’s word

Instead of wallowing in fear and anxiety feed your spirit with God’s word of truth. Meditate on God’s word and in it you will get encouraged, empowered , hopeful and inspired to face whatever has be trying to steal your peace and with God on your side no weapon formed against you shall prosper.

Be patient

Patience is a virtue. When situations hit you have to remind yourself that this to shall pass. Seasons don’t last forever. Whatever your facing now is only going to make you stronger. You are living and walking in the preparation for your destiny. God has great plans for you so hold on to that. We live in a “me” and “now” generation, so the sooner you can learn to remain patient, the easier it will be to stay calm. Sometimes you just have to WAIT on the Lord.

Inner peace

It’s very important to train yourself to be peaceful on the inside and not try to acquire peace from the outside by trying to solve your anxieties with outward solutions. That would won’t last. You will still live in captivity of your emotions. Don’t get confused but remaining calm and peaceful is based on the inside, not by outward circumstances. Regardless of the the drama or crisis situation going on outside, you have control of the emotions going on inside. Just keep telling yourself that you are still in control of everything that is going on inside and that God has not brought this far to forsake you now.

Be Kind To Yourself

Love and be kind to yourself. Speak positively over yourself and encourage yourself. Many times I have said that it is important to like and love the person that is looking back at you in the mirror. Stop putting yourself down with negative self-talk. Respect yourself, your uniqueness , your talents, appearance, strengths and weaknesses. Being kind to yourself allows positive feelings to flow through your mind and that will produce peace in your life.

Forgive yourself and others.

Be quick to forgive yourself and others. When you forgive, it isn’t a sign of weakness and you aren’t condoning the action. Forgiveness allows you to put the situation behind you and turn off the constantly spinning wheels in your head. When you are wronged by another person or you wrong someone, you can’t ever take the words or actions back. Forgiveness is the only way of letting it all go. You will find out that Forgiveness brings about a peaceful calm within your soul. That is priceless.

Be thankful

Always be thankful. I know when you look in the mirror or around you, you will discover they are a lot of things to be thankful for. When you sense feelings of anxiety think of something thing good that has happened to you and be thankful. Thank God that you are a live, well and still breathing. You are going to hit rough patches many times in your journey through life but count it all joy and know that the battle is not yours but the lords. And remember in all things give thanks and know that God is always on your side and that will keep you peaceful and calm.

I pray these tips will help you like they have helped me. If you have any tips that have helped you stay peaceful that you would love to share please leave me a comment below.

Stay motivated and inspired

Fight for your dreams 

~ Never ever give up, no matter what

When talking about fighting for your dreams and believing in yourself and never giving up even when you fail over and over and over again all you Gotta do is you have to get back up again and fight for your dreams, your destiny and everything that you believe in because it will come to pass with great perseverance, consistency and focus.

 Now let’s look at the life of Abraham Lincoln for example it teaches us a lot about fighting for your dreams . Abraham Lincoln fought for his dreams that even when he failed he never gave up until he achieved his dreams.

In 1831, Abraham Lincoln failed in business.

In 1832, Abraham Lincoln was defeated for state legislator.

In 1833, Abraham Lincoln tried a new business, and failed.

In 1835, Abraham Lincoln’s fiancée died.

In 1836, Abraham Lincoln had a nervous breakdown.

In 1843, Abraham Lincoln ran for congress and was defeated.

In 1848, Lincoln ran again, and was defeated. Again.

In 1855, Lincoln ran for the Senate, and lost.

In 1856, Lincoln ran for Vice President, and lost.

In 1859, Lincoln ran again for the Senate. He was defeated.

Then, in 1860, Abraham Lincoln was elected President of the United States. 

He never gave up no matter what he failed at or whatever odds were against him he persevered and fought till the end and won you can do it to.What matters most is not how many times you fail, but that you never stop trying just like Abraham Lincoln did. Always fight for your dreams till they become a reality. 

~Stay focused and persistent 

Even when everything seems to be against you and you can’t see your way through keep trying and fight for your dreams don’t give up or lose your focus because the enemy will always use your weaknesses against you to hinder you , distract you from fighting for your dreams.

The only reason why we fail it’s because of broken focus . Lack of focus will kill your dreams before they are even born. When you lose sight of your dreams you will never achieve them. Stay focused and patient in your season. Be consistent in your dreams and fight for what you believe and you will achieve it.

~Do let your age limit you from achieving dreams.

Sometimes we tend to complain about our age and think that maybe we are too old or too young to pursue our dreams but age is just a number but your dreams are in you and alive, they want to come out but you have let your age hinder you from pursuing them. It doesn’t matter whether you’re 6 years old or your 20, 30, 40, 60 , 70 years old or older, as long as you have a dream inside of you and believe in it 100% you will achieve it. Do let your age limit you from achieving dreams. As long as you have breath in you , you can achieve your dreams.

~Don’t let the lack of money hinder you from fighting for your dreams.

Most of the time we have talked ourselves out of pursuing our dreams because we didn’t not have the resources to back up what we believed in and that has stood in the way our destiny. Don’t let the lack of money hinder you from fighting for your dreams. When you keep fighting  for your dreams the right doors will open up for you. The more you walk into your destiny God will open doors of financial breakthroughs and opportunities will present themselves to you if you do not give up so quickly .

~Don’t allow negative words spoken over you hinder you from fighting for your dreams.

Even when everybody doesn’t see what you see don’t let them discourage or distract you from dreaming, don’t let their words distract you from believing in your dreams and fighting for them. 

The enemy will use your haters , the naysayers to try to sabotage your destiny but the more they do that keep on believing in your dreams even harder. Don’t allow negative words spoken over you hinder you from fighting for your dreams.Use their words as momentum to prove to them that you can do what God called you to do.

You can do it and you will achieve all your dreams in Jesus name. Believe in yourself and never give up no matter what.

Stay inspired and motivated and dream big

Overcoming insecurities 

Trust that God makes no mistakes: Before you were in your mothers womb God knew you. He knew who you were going to become and He called you beautiful. Everything about you is beautiful, that alone should give you the confidence. There shouldn’t be any room of insecurity about who you are and who God created you to be.
Most of the times, especially women! we tend to look at ourselves and try to find what’s wrong with our physical appearance instead of embracing our uniqueness of who God created us to be. Every time you speak or see something negative about you or you don’t appreciate and recognize who God created you to be, you are actually saying to God that He made a mistake when He created you. God makes no mistakes. You were uniquely created and crafted by God and He made you perfect in His image.

So don’t allow the enemy to create thoughts of doubt about your identity. Resist and remove the insecure thoughts out of your mind and heart that cause you to feel that you are less than and cause you to think your are not enough and make you feel you are not beautiful. You are God’s reflection and everything beautiful God is, you are. The Bible says…I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well…Psalms 139:14.
So be confident and bold and embrace who God created you to be. God wants you to be confident, bold, fearless and free. He wants you to be healthy and whole-fully able to pursue your destiny. And He desires for you to feel good about yourself and your relationship with Him.

Stop comparing yourself with others: Be the original you. God made you an original and He has Great plans just for you. When you are insecure you tend to compare yourself with others and try to keep up with them. It’s exhausting and just leads to frustration. I remember long time ago when I was younger and was discovering who I was I used to compare myself to others until I found God through seeking Him and reading the Bible I discovered I was enough and beautiful just the way I was and my security was in God. Most of all His unconditional love was always present. That was a life changing moment. I leant how to love me, believe in me and God filled me up with confidence and security in Him. He can do the same for you today. Ask Him and He will transform your life.


Discover who you are in Christ: Most of the time ladies when insecurity occurs in our lives it’s because we have not discovered who we are in Christ and we start comparing ourselves to others. What you think is different about you actually it’s what makes you beautiful and unique. Embrace your uniqueness and Know your security is in God not man and material things.

No more fear and doubt: May be some of you started doubting yourselves because of what your friends, loved ones and family members said about you. Maybe they called you ugly, fat and they said the meanest things about your physical appearance that made you doubt yourself. When people attack you physical appearance most of the time they are insecure about who they are and they want to impose their insecurities on you which causes them to act out in a certain way. Remember hurt people hurt people. So forgive them , forgive yourself, love yourself because God loves you. Today is the day for emotional healing in your life. Delete every negative and insecure files out of the memory of your mind and heart and know God calls you beautiful and He loves you just the way you are because you are like God. He created you in His perfect image.

Many times we focus on ourselves when we should be focused on God. We focus on our weakness, faults and everything we have done wrong and feed on that which creates a mentality of failure. Which makes you feel not good enough and you start thinking you can’t achieve anything which leads to more insecurities. No more! ..The Bible says…He said to me: My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me… 2 Corinthians 12:9 

God wants you to feel good about yourself. He wants you to be bold, confident, to be fearless, to walk in His power, believe Him for big things and be secure in Him always.



Trust God with your heart, insecurities, fears and anything that’s hindering you from walking into your divine destiny and let God heal you and transform your life . Because you are beautifully and wonderfully made by God, great is His works.

Many blessings, stay inspired, stay motivated to pursue your dreams and walk into your God given destiny in Jesus name.

No more Excuses against your Dreams and Destiny

Do you have a dream that you been trying to pursue but you never get around it. Are Excuses standing in the way of your dreams. Many times our dreams have not been realize because we have had so many excuses of why we can’t do it because we are afraid to fail so we decided not to even try.

When you have too many excuses in life of what you shouldn’t do or achieve your dreams you are really robbing yourself of  a great destiny God has for you. When you keep on having excuses in your life you will never discover the greatest potential that lies within you. Let today be the moment you decided to give your dreams a chance. Let this be the day you put fear behind you and walk in confidence and purpose.

I have come to realize that many times when we don’t want to pursue our dreams its because we are afraid of what the outcome is going to be and we actually talk ourselves out of it or say to ourselves maybe I’m not good enough or maybe I’m not going to do a great job, that self sabotage will kill your dreams.  As long as you keep on with that mindset you will never do what you want to do you in life but live in fear of the future, isolation from your dreams and you will miss out on living the life God wants you to live and you won’t discover the gifting’s that God has placed inside of you.

You are a jewel that God has placed on this earth to succeed in every area of your life. But many times the devil has lied to you that you’re not good enough and that if you try to pursue your dreams you’re going to fail. All these negative thoughts have overwhelmed and convinced your mind to giveup and not to dream and you find yourself stuck in a cycle that you don’t understand and you want to see change in your life. Today is the day for your freedom, Today is the day you choose you, your dreams, life and purpose because God says you’re good enough and you can and you wil achieve all your dreams

God says you can do whatever you put your mind to, just know that you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. Even in the places where your weak do not be afraid because God will give you strength when your weak. So when you are weak, do not take your weakness as a sign of failure, actually your weakness is a tool that God uses to manifest His strength within you and gives you the power to do great things and fulfill your dreams.

So no more excuses against your dreams and destiny, just faith and believe in yourself , believe God has a plan for you and believe you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you, so go forth and pursue your dreams, do not be afraid of anything, do not be distracted because God’s got you and you are going to accomplish everything that He has placed inside of you for the glory of His name. Have a blessed week.
