I made her… She is different, She is unique,

With love I formed in her mother’s womb, I fashioned her with great joy.

I remember, with great pleasure, the day I created her.

Psalm 139:13-16

I love her smile, I love her ways,

I love to hear her laugh,

And the silly things she says and does.

She brings Me great pleasure. This is how I made her.

Psalm 139:17

I made her heart beautiful

I wanted her to search out her heart,

And to learn that it would be Me in her

That would make her beautiful…

And it would be Me in her that would draw friends to her.

1 Peter 3:3-5

I made her in such a way, that she would need Me.

I made her a little more lonesome than she would like to be…

Only because I need for her to lean and depend on Me…

I know her heart, I know if I had not made her like this,

She would go her own chosen way

And forget Me… her Creator.

Psalm 62:5-8

I have given her many good and happy things

Because I love her.

Psalm 84:11, Romans 8:23

Because I love her,

I have seen her broken heart…

And the tears she cried alone.

I have cried with her, and had a broken heart too.

Psalm 56:8

Many times, she has stumbled

And fallen alone

Only because she would not hold My Hand,

So many lessons she’s learned the hard way.

Because she would not listen to My voice…

Isaiah 53:6

So many times I have sat back

And sadly watched her go her merry way alone.

Only to watch her return to My arms, sad and broken.

Isaiah 62:2

I have to reshape her and remold her…

To renew her to what I had planned for her to be.

It has not been easy for her,

Or for Me.

Jeremiah 29:11

I want her to be conformed to My Image…

This is the high goal I have set for her,

Because I love her.

2 Corinthians 2:14

“I have been crucified in CHRIST; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Changing Seasons


We too, as the trees, should stand strong amidst change

As through seasons we travel and with others we share

We say, On earth nothing lasts forever,

Circumstances change, people change and things go wrong,

Hold on to your faith and life goes on.

LOVEThe path of the heart is free and full of beauty. 

Follow your heart because your heart will know the love that is meant for you.

And If a day goes by without me saying I love you – never let a moment go by without knowing that I do.

Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get, it’s what you are expected to give – which is everything.

My love shines like a sun, sometimes visible and sometimes invisible but it is always HERE.

“Who is among you that feareth the Lord, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? Let him trust in the name of the Lord, and stay upon his God.” Isaiah 50:10.

Do you see weary people in the body of Christ? While the world has serious problems that can wear us down, we can experience joy from God, Who lifts us up. According to the Bible, the joy of the Lord is our strength. Take your stand on the Word of God. Become rooted and grounded, not in shame, discouragement and dishonor but in the LOVE of Christ, being complete in Him. Ask the Lord to work a healing in your mind, will and emotions. Let Him come in and fulfill what He came to do: Heal your broken heart, bind up your wounds, and give you beauty for ashes, joy for mourning, a garment of praise instead of heaviness and a double honor for a double shame.  Determine that from this moment on you are going to reject the roots of bitterness, shame, negativism, and perfectionism and nourish the roots of joy, peace love and power. God’s Word is filled with inherent power. When God speaks, powerful things take place. His Word never returns void; it always accomplishes its purpose. When we learn to speak God’s Word instead of rehearsing how we feel or declaring what we think, we are also releasing power. The Word of God spoken in faith from a believer’s mouth can change circumstances. We may experience negative facts in our lives but God’s Word is truth and truth is more powerful than facts.

During the struggling moment of my life, God has spoken to me and all I need to do is to believe what He has said. His Word is loaded with promises that are for anyone who will believe them and act accordingly. Just as you may have, I had set of unpleasant facts in my life. During my childhood I had been physically and mentally badly abused. I was emotionally wounded and experienced various personality disorders as a result of enduring a very dysfunctional life. I had sour attitude, a chip on my shoulder and was filled with bitterness and un-forgiveness. But Jesus came into my life, and I learned to faithfully believe in His Word.  By faith I draw the bloodline of Jesus Christ across my life and boldly declare that I am healed from the pains and wounds of my pasts. I have been set free to live a new life of wholeness. I continue to praise the Lord and confess His Word over myself, claiming His forgiveness, cleansing and healing every day. I stopped blaming my biological father for what’s happening in our lives and  I started to forgive Him. I stopped blaming myself and feeling unworthy and unloved. Instead I begun to say ‘’ If God is for me, who can be against me?’’  And today I am free from all those things that were definitely negative facts years ago because I know for sure that I am walking in a way where God’s presence and power is abiding me. God who is all-powerful and all-knowing lives within me.

God compares His Word to seed. When we plant the seed by speaking it, praying it, believing it and acting upon it, it will produce what it says. God promise us that it will produce and it will change the darkness life into light. God will not only cover you, He will also bring you into a place in Him where the evil one can’t touch you. Psalm 5:11 says, ‘’ But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them that those who love your name may rejoice in you.’’ God is covering you so that you can survive anything and everything, if you just trust in Him and hold steadfast to His Word. Rejoice! for you’ve got heavenly protection from all your earthly foes! Praise the Lord for He turns the darkness into light. In Jesus name, Amen.

\

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.- Colossians 3:15-17

My Solitude with Christ 

Imagining  myself in the place of Jesus, lying there in the house where I feel safe, comforted, loved and accepted. Picturing  how much harder the decision to leave would have been if Jesus had ignored that restless  so during my solitude I usually “Get up and go out or lock my room to pray fervently  ”  and in the midst of my solitude, God is calling.

” Today, I’m not anti-social.  I’m just enjoying my solitude.”

‘’ Fulfilling God‘s Purpose ‘’

I was living a life that’s filled with woe.

I was holding onto sin that I can’t let go.

Then Jesus beseeches but I said No!

I said to myself, what will it take?

Nizy, please be awake!

 ~*~

Jesus Christ for me has died.

On the cross was crucified.

But I didn’t make up my mind.

I said to myself, what will it take?

Nizy, please be awake!

 ~*~

How many glitches will arise?

Before you finally realize

God meant every word He said.

I said to myself, what will it take?

Nizy, please be awake!

 ~*~

 In my sacred place I talk to Christ

I keep praying  on my own will sight

What massive gaffe do I have to yield?

I said to myself, what will it take?

Nizy, please be awake!

 ~*~

Life on earth is very fast.

Opportunity will soon past.

Only what’s done for Christ will last.

I said to myself, what will it take?

Nizy, please be awake!

~* ~

Until I realize I must give my all to Christ.

I said and pray ’’ Whatever you want Lord’’

Direct my steps and show me your way.

I saw His face smiling and said ”My child, follow my way”

I replied, I’ll take up my cross Lord and follow your purpose!
