In order to grow, it is vital have rain as much as sun however, sometimes the rain can be overbearing and overwhelming. We can also receive more rain than sun in our life which means that we can be over drained, drowned and washed out. Too much excessive rain can cause plants to decay, wilt and perish *(Grant, n.d.)*. The rain in our lives can symbolize unfortunate events, depression and pain. It is important to remember that trouble does not last always. Happiness is a choice. The joy of the Lord shall be our strength. Psalms 30:5 says “For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning”.
Whatever your going through, hold on to his word. Allow the rain to push you to be stronger. Allow the Lord to be your safety float in the midst of the storms and floods. Rain pours on the just and the unjust. Don’t allow the pressures of the rain to choke out your hope, joy, peace and happiness. Don’t allow the rain to close up your heart to stop you from living and loving again. I pray that the rays of sunshine appears in the darkest depths of your mind, body and soul. Better days are still coming and always remember the best is yet to come. Another day on earth is another chance to get it right. He has not given up on you nor should you give up on yourself. The trials and persecutions are only temporary. The rain shall have no reign over you. Again hold on to the foundation of his word which is sharper than a two-edge sword. He is the way, the truth and the life. He is also the light in a dark place.
Allow him to be the sunshine in the midst of your rain. The beauty, growth, strength and blossoming into a greater creation will be all worth it. What you waiting for? Today is a new day ♥
2 Samuel 23:4: “And [he shall be] as the light of the morning, [when] the sun riseth, [even] a morning without clouds; [as] the tender grass [springing] out of the earth by clear shining after rain”.
Matthew 5:45: “That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust”.

Walking a narrow path isn’t easy. It also comes with much obedience, sacrifice, discipline and commitment. When walking this path, it is important to stay focus and faithful even until the end. When you are walking on a narrow path don’t fall into any traps of deception by thinking you’re missing out on something. Allow God to keep you in perfect peace. Keep your thoughts on him. Don’t waste the years of your life by conforming. That’s time and energy that you can’t get back.
The lie that the enemy will try to display is that your missing out on the “fun” (the pleasures of sin). Please don’t believe the lie and the mindset that everyone’s doing it. That is deception. Don’t fall for the bait or trap. Guard your heart and affections. God’s protection is a blessing and it will save you from so much unnecessary trouble. Put on the full armor of God. He will preserve you. He will do whatever he can to protect his best. It’s an honor to be on God’s mind so much, that he’s not willing to allow you to go through that path of destruction. It will always appear as rejection, but it’s really protection so you can truly receive his best in any area of your life. Romans 8:25: says “But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it”. Always remember that the best is yet to come. ♥
Please don’t get weary and bow. Stay out of danger. Someone is counting on you to be different. Hebrews 11:25 mentions that the pleasures of sin are for a season. Stay true to who he called you to be. Despite the pressures of reality, your obedience, devotion, sacrifice and commitment will pay off. The enemy will make a lie appear as the truth. You’re not missing out on anything that you “must” have. Allow God to build your patience so when you finally receive, your foundation will be stronger. Your time is coming 🙂

It’s important to leave all old things behind. All former things have passed away. Remove all negative energy and distractions. If you fall, always get back up. The enemy’s plan is for you to get discouraged and to give up. Always remember that giving up is not an option. He will make a lie more believable and appealing than the truth. Sometimes the lie will appear as the truth, but that’s why you must hold on to God’s word. There will be many times in where it will look as if God has forsaken you, but that’s only lie. Hang on and hold on to God’s promises. Fight for your happiness, joy and peace ♥.
Allow him to strengthen you in your weakest moments. Don’t stop believing in the dreams and visions that he gave you just because it hasn’t came to past yet. He is not a man that shall lie. Allow him to restore your vision even if it has gotten a little blurry. Refresh and renew your mind. Have the fight and strength to get back up. Have the courage to keep going. Through your failure keep going. Through pain and rejection keep going. He is still with you. Your current reality does not determine where you will stay. Fight for your vision, dreams and goals. Enjoy the journey along the way. His plan is perfect although it won’t feel perfect. (Sometimes it will look crazy). He is not only testing your faith, but your patience. It will all pay off. Extreme measures equate to extreme blessings. Don’t wait for no one’s affirmation in order to keep going. It’s still going to work out for your good and his glory ♥♥.

Did you know that Laughter is beneficial to your health? Laughter has the power to relax both your body and mind. It has the potential to boost your energy, strengthen your immune system as well to decrease stress levels. Its important to take the time to laugh. A cup of laughter is greatly needed and refreshing in today’s time. Laughter can be contagious and can shift the atmosphere of any environment. It is written in Proverbs 17:28: “A merry heart doeth good [like] a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones”. Get your dose of daily laughter. Do not allow anyone to drain your energy. Become refreshed with new positive energy. There is always some humor in some of the most troubling situations. Make up in your mind that you shall no longer be broken. Get back up and get your power back. Remember to get your cup your laughter 🙂
We currently live in a world in where the truth is a lie and the lie is the truth. If you are not careful, you can become deceived by what looks right, feels right and sounds right, but it will lead you to a road of destruction. There are so many people compromising with a lie. It is written Galatians 6:7: Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. They are following the ways of world and they are not truly transformed. You cannot tell the difference between the clean and unclean. The Godly and the Ungodly. God said his people must be Holy. Holy means separate. Do not allow the Devil to make you bandwagon with what everyone else is doing and watching. Don’t allow him convince you that the Lord has changed his word in today’s time, for
It is written in Hebrews 13:8 (KJV) Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and for ever.
When you are unsure what is true and you seem to be confused on what is righteous, read the word. Engrave it in your mind, heart, and soul. There is only one path to heaven, and that is through Jesus. Be not deceived through thoughts, opinions, emotions nor philosophy. These are the last days. He shall return very soon.
Everything Is not what it appears or seems. Do not fall into the trap of illusions. It’s going to take more than feelings and the idea of a situation in order to sustain through the tough times. If you make a life decision based on the artificial or idea, it will crumble a part. It’s so much more work, dedication, focus, and commitment than what it appears on the outside. The intensity and urgency of a situation will take much more than just the illusion of feelings and ideas. It will also take more than the desire. Use the eyes of the spirit and not the eyes of the natural. Some times God is protecting you, when you don’t get your way.
Find it not a strange thing when God does not give you what you want when you want it. Don’t follow the trend of what everyone is doing. Don’t allow what others are doing to cloud your judgement. This is your path. Trends eventually fades. You must remain faithful to who you are until the end. What’s for everyone may not be for you at the moment. God has a special plan your life. He always saves the best for last. Focus on his word and his voice. Not the other voices in the background nor illusions.
Who are you? It’s a question that people ask even until the end of their lives. It’s not a question that can be easily answered despite the life experiences that one must go through and endure. It’s not answered by popularity, your past, riches, nor flattery. It’s not something you can seek from the pleasures of this world, which will surely fade and give you unrest. The pleasures of this world will deteriorate your soul as a moth destroys clothes. You can have everything going on from the outside and still feel absolutely empty on the inside. You can look like you have the perfect peace, but your spirit may be broken into pieces. Everything is not what it appears or seem. Your worth cannot be defined through material things and other people’s affirmation. You have to find who you are and not through the words of other people. You are who God says you are. Once you know the truth, it shall set you free. Please know your worth and who you are. Do not compromise your dignity, value, honor, respect and integrity. Only God can give you the answer if you seek him above all else.
It is written in Exodus 3:14 And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.
As so it was with Moses, the Lord will guide your footsteps and directions all of the days of your life. He has the answers to the question, Who are you? No one else has the key to unlock that answer.
