The final day. We have arrived at Day 180!!
OMGeeee. I have mixed feelings.
On one hand, I am elated to reach this milestone. But it’s bittersweet as it means I won’t be sharing here again until next year or at odd times throughout the year.
But on this final day, I boast about the God who gives signs of victory.
So many things are happening now, of which I will share at a later date. But, God showed me victory in a dream.
I dreamt that I had a rod in my hand. And I started to strike the ground with it. I did not stop until the rod was whittled down to a straw in my hand.
Interpretation: I will defeat the enemy to the extent that they cannot make a comeback. 2 Kings 12:19 proves it. “Elisha told him, “Strike the ground.” He struck it three times and stopped. The man of God was angry with him and said, “You should have struck the ground five or six times; then you would have defeated Aram and completely destroyed it. But now you will defeat it only three times.”
Signs of victory. My victory is sure and it will manifest.
Follow me in Instagram @purposeful_inspiration where I do 180 Days of Boasting about God LIVE. I’m at Day 6 today. Until then, thanks for joining me on this beautiful journey. Love you.
On the eve of a journey’s end! What an experience it has been.
My prayer is always for new experiences with Daddy. This year, I got so much more than I could share here.
God has been my peace, my friend, my shoulder to cry on and my shield.
He has corrected me, rerouted me, restored and elevated me.
If I’m not sure of anything else I can certainly say that he will never leave me. This year has taught me that he’s always near.
To my friend, my God, thank you for loving me and choosing me.
Once again, I’m grateful to God for the family he placed me in.
Over 3 months ago, my phone was acting weird. The SD card wouldn’t register and it would send all the stored apps to the phone’s storage. That caused my phone to slow down as the space became full.
I told my sis. She started to source some phones for me but I couldn’t afford it at the time. Especially because I needed to buy a laptop.
Last week, she called me into her room and gave me a phone. 😭 She said she decided to buy it for me so she took her time and paid it off. She didn’t want my phone to stop working and leave me with nothing to use 🥰.
I’m thankful that Daddy gave me such a loving support system.
For those who may feel like you’re all alone, tell Daddy. He’ll either restore the broken relationships or he’ll send in reinforcements.
There’s one experience with God that will never get old…
Jesus died for my sins. He became my Saviour and Redeemer.
When I didn’t see a better life ahead of me, Jesus died to rescue me. I am who I am and where I am because of Jesus.
I have lived in the goodness of God!
As I prepared for my Sunday school class tomorrow, I felt the Holy Spirit instructing me to read the commentary. So, I did.
Luke 9:57-63 speaks of Jesus’ response to persons wanting to follow him. Honestly, I’ve read these stories before but this time was different.
The first man said he’d follow Jesus wholeheartedly. Jesus said that foxes have holes and birds have nest but the son of man has nowhere to lay his head.
For the first time, I’ve realised that I’ve never cautioned anyone like this. It’s important that we know that being a Christian (follower of Jesus) will not be comfortable. We won’t have a set place to rest and settle. This word still applies though most of us are not moving around physically to spread the gospel.
How does it apply?
At every stage of this journey, you’ll get uncomfortable. This normally signals a change of pace or season. You’ll be unsatisfied with where you are and your relationship with God. You’ll want more. You’ll always be in a position to shift.
There is no spiritual state that we can return to when we’re weary, we have to keep going.
As we keep going, we have no safe space (fox hole) to run back to. We’ll be more exposed to spiritual elements and danger.
However, know this, Jesus IS with you if you take this step. We don’t need holes/nests because he’ll be our resting place and shelter. We don’t need a safe haven because we’ll be dwelling in the secret place of the Most High. I know this because I’ve lived it.
I started the “Live” (Insta Live) version of 180 Days of Boasting about God (Click the link to watch on Instagram and be sure to follow me).
Initially, I felt like I’d have been too tired to do the live. Yet, as I logged on, I forgot my tiredness and efforts from the day.
Daddy gave me strength to deliver. I felt physically tired but I found myself being excited.
I was happy to share my experience with God in Day 1 of the live version.
