180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 174

The last day of June 2022!!

I got the strategy from Daddy! How will I combat the frustration? I’ll keep my head down and just move.

I won’t look up to exhale in the face of frustration. I won’t give up and go lie down. I’ll keep my head down and push ahead.

I’m pressing towards the mark with my blinders on.

I chose to operate in overflow and not overwhelm.

Taking today as a mental and physical break.

I keep seeing deadlines pop up one after the other. Then I’m expected to complete everything at once.

So what do I do? I take a break and regroup. God’s got me. So I’ll wait for him to give me his strategy. I’ll tell you about it soon.

I will not lie… This month has been particularly challenging.

But the word on Sunday was that I should command my soul and body to praise the Lord.

That’s what I’ve been doing and I works. For the duration odd worship, I feel neither frustrated or tired.

Everytime I worship God, I feel good.

My computer has not been working for weeks. I was unable to open any word, pdf, PowerPoint or publisher documents. I was not even able to open some other apps.

I was able to use another computer in a different office. But I wasn’t comfortable as that office holds some important equipment.

So, last week, I took a leap of faith and reset my computer. This morning, I began to uninstall and reinstall. I got the activation keys and entered them until one worked.

I give God the glory for prompting me to reset and then leading me to do the other changes. Now I have my computer again.

God cares about every aspect of our lives.

Today, I realised why.

Let me connect the dots. Last year, Daddy told me that I won’t get the type of guy I want, but I’d get the one I need. I wasn’t too happy with that because I like a specific type. 😏

Then, Daddy asked me if I wanted a specific guy I was crushing on. I remembered how the Israelites wanted fish in the wilderness and nearly died when they got it. So, I told him that in all honesty, I did want the guy but I’d prefer his choice for me. 😨I was not trying to have a miserable life.

Today, I realised that the guy I had a crush on is now living overseas and is preparing to get married to a lady in that country…. while his present girlfriend remains in my country.

I see that I’d be the girl with an overseas boyfriend who has plans to get married to someone else, if I had said yes to Daddy’s question.

Morale: if God says no, work with it. He sees the end from the beginning.

I’ve been running on E (empty) due to exhaustion for the past few days.

Yesterday, I sought permission to work from home today, and I got it! 💃💃 I didn’t have to wake up early to avoid the heavy traffic. I didn’t have to journey for two hours to work and then two hours home. I woke up late and started working on time!

I’m so grateful for these types of blessings. Ask and shall be given! 🙏

Did I ever tell you about my job history? Part 2 (Read Part 1 here)

So, I started working at company 1. I worked as an Assistant Registrar. So I learnt about records management. This is a related but different field from library and information studies, that I pursued at university.

Six months later, I got called for an interview. This interview was for a post for which I didn’t remember applying. 🤐 But I got the job description and I went.

Turns out, the post was a records management post! 😃

My work experience at company 1 helped me to answer most of the questions. AND I was successful and started working there six and a half months after engaging with company 1.

Morale of the story: allow Daddy to tell you what to do. His plans act as a stepping stone to your next level. If I hadn’t gone to company 1, I wouldn’t have know how to answer appropriately for the interview which was scheduled for six months later.

Did I ever tell you about my job history? Part 1

I did my finals in May 2015. They were complete by mid-May actually.

Based on the unemployment trend, I was prepared to stay home for many months. So, I made a plan to spend time in prayer and reading the word while I was home. I would read the bible and pray daily since I was home alone.

I stayed home, unemployed, for ONLY two weeks. During those two weeks, I applied to any position for which I was reasonably qualified. By 1 June 2015, I was working on a one month contract to develop a policy for the digitisation of records.

By July 2015, I had two back-to-back interviews. And I told Daddy that he should let the company he wants me to work with be the one to call me first. Well, company 1 called me and offered my the job. Minutes later, company 2 called saying they tried to call me earlier but didn’t get through. They wanted me but for a different position.

Then I started to second guess the first sign and told Daddy that I’d prefer to go with the job that pays more. Well, I found out that company 1, who called first, paid more.

Morale of the story: if you’re unemployed, use most of the time to fast, pray, and read your bible rather than getting depressed because you’re not working. God rewards those who seek his kingdom and righteousness first.

I’m always amazed when persons disrespect me and then turn around and ask for my help. It’s even stranger when the disrespect comes after I’ve assisted them.

In a current matter, the disrespect followed and preceded someone getting and requesting my help. And I was not inclined to providing my support this time.

But, Daddy said something in response to my decision.

Daddy said, “You’re not helping him. You’re helping me.”

Isn’t it amazing to think that though we are frail humans, God offers us the opportunity to help him?

I boasting about the God, Jehovah, who includes us in his work even though he doesn’t have to do so.

The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40

No matter what storm clouds may rock this ship of mine,
The light of my Savior leads me safely through the night.
Though my ship may be rocky and my sails may be torn,
I shall rest in the eye of the storm.

My ship is being rocked but I will rest in the eye of the storm.

This was sung yesterday at church and it resonated with me.

I believe that Jesus will guide me through the night.

It’s not always the best feeling when you’re going through a process of change.

It makes you moody, upset, and frustrated. At times depressed.

Yet, you’ll find hope and direction if you look to the end instead of looking at the process. Why? When God is effecting a change, it’s for the best.

I’ve never liked the changing process. However, I like the God who doesn’t change and who always keeps his promises.

I’m coming out of this smelling, looking, sounding, and moving like a new creature.

Restoration began!

A friend of mine reached out to me after saying that she didn’t think I was genuine.

Naturally, I was weary because I don’t like losing close friends. But God said to me that it was part of the restoration process that he is doing in my life.

I’m boasting because Daddy is restoring everything that I lost.

Daddy reminded me yesterday that the road I am is a lonely one. Here’s the song he gave me about 4 years ago:

Chorus: But the Spirit said go. It’s hard to see. (Go). It’s cold out there. (Go). It’s a lonely road. (Go). Is it right for me? (Go). Will I even see you? The Spirit said go, so I push on. I gotta keep going even when my spirit is broken.

I’m going. I won’t stop. I won’t seek support from man.

The Spirit said, “Go.”

Have you ever wanted to give up because you don’t see things working out?

Let me remind you, we walk by faith.

We trust in the God who has already done it. We simply await the manifestation.

Car. Manifested.

Owning a home. Manifesting.

Pursuing my career. Manifesting.

Travelling. Manifesting.

Getting married next year. Will manifest.

Having children. Will manifest.

Retiring in a few years. Will manifest.

Working full time for God. Will manifest.

Note: add your declaration because we shall see the fullness of our faith in due time.

After a long weekend on the mission field… I should be happy but I’m not.

I’m tired. I’m tired of trying but it’s never enough.

I’m tired of being all things to all men and being disrespected.

I really just want to be the me who doesn’t talk to people and doesn’t make friends.

Pray for me. Please.

I’m going to have a talk with Daddy. He’ll know what to do and say to give me the right perspective. While I want to embrace my desire, I’d prefer to be who God wants me to be.

On that note, go to God for his perspective whenever you’re feeling sad. He knows the end from the beginning.

Today, I witnessed 14 persons get baptised 💃💃💃💃

Only 5 persons initially made the decision. But by the end, the others walked into the pool.

Two family friends were in the group. It was so beautiful to see God moving in their lives when persons prayed for them.

💃💃💃💃💃 Give God the glory.

God is great in the earth.

His wonders never cease.

I am in awe of his goodness.

What has God done for you today?

For me, God has directed me and rerouted me. He’s my guide. And I appreciate him.

I was going to buy two snacks for myself. Then I remembered that two persons would be driving with me. So I decided that I’d buy four instead (one for each person and two snacks for me).

But as I was making the order, I kept hearing to buy five. I don’t need five as it’d be too much. However, I bought the five snacks.

I picked up the two persons and gave them their snack. Then one of the two informed me that someone else was coming with us 😮.

When the third person arrived, I gave them their snack.

Look at God. It’s good to be led by the Spirit.

🙌 Simply grateful.

For the past two days, I’ve had to drive past the spot where the man drove into my car’s rear-end. And I declared that I won’t be fearful of fender-benders.

Tonight, while on my way home. I worshipped in that spot.💃💃 God was right there. He was there long before the accident and will be there long after the accident.

And because he was there, the accident was of no consequence. My car, Classic, isn’t even dented as evidence of being collided into by another car.

That’s God. That’s why I’m grateful.
