You are beautiful

I may not be the perfect girl
I may not look like a pearl
But what I borne in my heart is authentic
What comes out of my mouth brings life

What emanates from my presence is prestigious
And so I'll use this gift from God
to which I'm still not very acquainted
and show you that you too are beautiful inside out
You too are powerful no matter what

You're a genius even though you don't believe it
You're pretty even though those clothes won't fit
Who said you had to conform to some rules?
Thin, fat, slender, chubby girls listen to me and trust me when I say this
You're personalities are too big to be confined in a box of rules
A box telling you how you should look like

Look in the mirror
And fall in love with that reflection
Embrace that person looking back at you
She is unique and one of a kind
She has ideas and opinions others don't have
Her unique laughter would melt the most frozen heart
Her unique fingers are designed to one day interlock with the fingers of that handsome man who sees you for who you truly are

A beautiful, powerful, smart, audacious and charismatic woman

 Created to inspire
Designed to encourage

No matter what they say
Remember that
You are fearfully and wonderfully made.

Sweep me up in your love again

Right now I'm literally sitting in the dark. Not because I want to but because there's no electricity in my area due to a load shedding situation the country I'm in is currently facing.

So here I am, too lazy to light up a candle but at the same time enjoying this feeling of tranquility and serenity. The only thing I'm hearing is the clock ticking and the music from my cell phone, which is why I'm writing to you guys. While listening to the soft and peaceful music I came across this new single by Hillsong. It really spoke to my heart as it talks about the supremacy of God which is something each one of us can relate to, one way or another. I mean I walk around and I see God presence in everything. I look at table mountain (Cape Town) and I fail even to fathom at how huge this God is. So big that not even the universe can contain Him yet humble and loving enough to dwell in my little heart.

The song goes on and talks about surrendering yourself to God and laying your life down for Him which is again so very important. Don't get me wrong, it's never easy to completely surrender everything to God, it's not easy to just let go, I myself am still working on that but He is so Gracious that He'll sustain you if you just let go. Quit trying to earn His love by doing whatever. He loves you, not because of your talent, not because of your appearance but rather because He knew you before the foundation of the earth and He's called you by name (Isaiah 43:1). All you have to do is surrender and let him work on you. Let go of whatever you did in the past, you've repented and He forgave you. Let go of the pain. Let go of that abuse you faced so many years ago. Forgive the people who hurt you and set yourself free. Don't fix your eyes on the waves in the tempest but rather on The One who is able to make the storm obey when He says: "Peace be still". Fix your eyes on what truly matters and let freedom find you. Let Him "sweep you up in His love again" as He's been waiting for you to come back to Him.
So guys I'd really encourage you all to listen to that song. It doesn't matter if you're not Christian or whatever. Just listen to the song. The title is "Touch the Sky". I put the video for you just below this post so you have no reason not to listen to the song. Okay, time to light up these candles now.

She got me a flower

Have you ever woken up feeling hum...not so happy. No one hurt you, nothing annoyed you yet there's just this feeling of unhappiness. You know that "I-don't-care-about-whatever-and-talk-to-me-if-you-wanna-get-a-smack-in-the-face" type of attitude? Yeah. That's pretty much how I was feeling yesterday. 

 Well, that is not a good place to be in, especially for us women and truth be told it sucks when you feel like that. You feel like nothing can really cheer you up. I mean I looove chocolate but not even the thought of getting a Cardburry could make me feel better. I prayed, I listened to music, I read, I painted, you name it! I did pretty much most of the things I enjoy doing on a daily basis but I was still feeling down so in the late afternoon I decided to go for a walk. Didn't help so I went back home asking myself all sorts of philosophical questions.

I finally got inside the complex where I stay and I suddenly heard one of the kids shouting my name and running towards me. Children tend to be "magnetizing" towards me which is why I really enjoy working with them. Anyway that child came running into my arms, she gave me a big hug and said:"I got you a flower!" with one of the biggest and most genuine smiles I've ever encountered. She then handed me the flower. 

Touched by her gesture, I looked at the flower and took it but I couldn't help but notice how small and simple it was yet it created this roller coaster of emotions within me as that late afternoon, that little child was the vessel God used to show me that He cares, that I matter, that He loves me. She could have given the flower to anyone but she chose to give it to me and that right there made me smile. It made my day as my mood all of a sudden made a complete U-turn from this dull and melancholic road to a colorful and cheerful highway.

So I looked at the flower again and that time I went beyond the walls of its physicality and understood that beauty is indeed found in simplicity.

Till next time!

I'm back!!!

Okay guys!

This is very awkward as I remember when I first started this blog I was so excited and I promised myself not to be one of those bloggers who post stuff in I don't know how many years.

Here I am writing after about a year. Many things happened but I don't have any excuse for this. So guys I apologize for my carelessness and I promise that this will never happen again. If I run out of inspiration and have to post about my rabbit –that I haven't gotten yet, then I'll do it. I want you guys to know how serious I am about this. Many may think that I am wasting my time but the private messages of encouragement I get show me that I am actually making a difference and my posts are not just a droplet  in the ocean but I believe –like the Dalai Lama that just like ripples spread out when a single pebble is dropped into water so do my actions have far-reaching effects that not even I can fathom.

So guys, keep reading, keep those messages coming as they do mean a lot to me.

What to wear at a beach party

Fashion is one of my passions and about two years ago I discovered that community website where one could use various products(clothes, shoes, flower, frames, etc) to create image collages and I just fell in love with that website. It's called Polyvore and it's like Twitter but for fashion and decoration. This is one of the many outfits I have created and I hope it inspires you on what to wear in this hot weather.

It's gonna rain

Hey guys!

I don't know about you but I think this year went quite fast, I feel like January 2013 was just a week ago but anyway, I just came back from church, there was a morning prayer and we dedicated the year 2014 to the LORD and just as Elijah did in 1 Kings 41-46, we prayed for rain into all the dried out areas in our lives and I truly believe the rain is coming.

I know there are many of you guys who believe God for great things be it in your family, your job, your relationships, you name it. Today I am coming to tell you that God has heard your cries and prayers and now, you have to get ready for the rain because 2014 is a year of revival, it's the year when we reap with joy what we have so generously sowed so be prepared to see God's hand in all the areas of your life. That what I am believing for because I know time can pass by, people may change and things can become quite rough but I also know that my God is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8)  so what He did for Elijah, He can also do for you and me if only we believe. Can I get a Ameen!!

Stay blessed and happy new year!

Love came down

Hey guys!

I know I haven't posted anything since my first post, I have been so busy and during this time, I learned something; I shouldn't let my busy life prevent me from using what God has put in me to touch His children. So I really apologise for being so quiet. I'll make my best to keep on posting some interesting things every now and then.

Great! Let's get started!!!

Today at my Church we had a Christmas carol service. I was just praying to God that everything would be fine and during the service, things were just going sooo well!! The musicians were doing a great job, the production was amazing and the play of the nativity went really well –I was playing Mary–. I really wanted God to do something during the service but I wanted Him to touch children in particular.

So after the service, every one was happy and smiling and then, I saw that cute little girl coming to me with her mom. Her mom then told me that during the service she kept on asking where Mary was. I took her in my arms and as I was talking to her, I just felt love. That child did not only fall in love with the actors but she fell in love with Jesus. Something happened during the service when the love of Christ Jesus came down, touched that girl and she'll never be the same again!! And I am pretty sure she wasn't the only one having a love encounter with Jesus at the Christmas carol service. Without even realising it, that child open the door to her heart and decided to let Jesus in–which He did. Tonight, once again Jesus honoured His promise when He said:" For where two or three gather in my name,there I am with them."(Matthew 18:20). There, in the midst of us, the love of God came down.

God's love is a mystery, I just feel that many of us need to give the key to Jesus so that He can open the door and make His home in our heart. I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior in 2008 at a youth camp and I still believe that was the best decision of my life. I am not saying that everything has been easy but I can definitely say that God has been with me every step of the way. It's doesn't matter what you did in the past, all God wants is an invitation from you and He'll take you on a journey that  you'll never regret in your life. So don't waste a second and make that decision that will make you understand that you're a son and daughter of the living God, the King of kings who loves you unconditionally.
