180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 53

When I call upon your name the very atmosphere will have to change!

I am confident in this because when Jesus was on the cross, he said, “It is finished.”

So, I’ll just call on Jesus at this time.

JESUS!

The days are becoming increasingly harder. Honestly.

I am weary.

But I press.

I do this because I know nothing interesting is there for me to even look back at. Now I can honestly say I understand Lot’s wife when she looked back. When your future is uncertain, the past and its familiar patterns may be hard to let go.

But unlike Lot’s wife, I have a personal relationship with the One who orchestrates the future. This is why I press.

Unexpected reactions.

Something happened yesterday. It’s not about my life so I can’t share it. But, someone came up to me, gave me a hug, and reassured me.

The funny thing is that a few persons expected this person to be negative and start to mock others. But, she didn’t. She was sincere in her reaction.

So today, I am truly thankful that while man sees the outward appearance, God is looking at our hearts. If you’re discouraged because of what people said or are saying about you, don’t worry. Be hopeful because God is looking at your heart. He doesn’t see you like people do. ❤❤

This is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it.

That’s my one intention for today. Enjoy life because Daddy went out of his way to make it.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 49

Today I’m grateful for rest days. When God rested on the 7th day, it was an indication for us to do the same.

Imagine, this God who isn’t flesh and blood was resting from all his work. It wasn’t because he was tired. He knows the importance of taking a break.

Though I’m not an adventist, I try to be mindful that I must rest on the Sabbath and not work. If I have to do something, I try to ensure it’s something that is kingdom-centred.

I encourage you to rest as I boast about a God who wasn’t tired but still took a break.

I’ve been saying the Lord’s Prayer all along but never fully understand “give us this day our daily bread”. 😮

I know it’s a request for daily provisions, including the Word of God, for sustenance. However, it’s more than requesting provisions.

In Exodus, the Israelites got the manna from heaven every morning. After a while, they got dissatisfied. They wanted fish like they got when they were captives in Egypt. God sent fish. But with that greed, they started to die.

Therefore, give us this day our daily bread is also a request for what God chooses to provide and not what we desire out of discontentment. In other words, give us the manna and not the fish.

Yesterday was a very productive day at work.

There is a project I’m undertaking and it should end on February 25. That’s next week. When I assessed the timeline today, I realised that I am on track!

So I thank God for small wins. And my prayer for the next few days is to remain on track.

I am extremely grateful for a Father who cares about all facets of my life.

Lord, the petty in me is rising oh.

Give me the strength to do things with grace and love.

Help me not to be petty.

Moral of the story? I serve a God who cares about the little things that concern me.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 45

I was hoping to write a victory report. However, I am still grateful.

In a class that tends to be difficult, I prepared and prayed to pass the competency test. I had the faith that I would pass.

But I didn’t.

The beauty in it was that I had peace. I was not discouraged or saddened. I legit felt good about my effort. I was even preparing to repeat the test.

Who could it be but God!!

Thank you Daddy.

The following song came to mind as I thought about writing this post:

Think about his love. Think about his goodness. Think about his grace, that brought us through…

I started to put the song aside but then I realised it’s the day of celebrating love.

Therefore, I honour God’s love towards me. Daddy has loved me from before the point of conception, to finding me when I got lost, until today. I can trust that his love never fails.

Thank you for loving me way more than I deserve or can even imagine.

Twas grace that taught my heart to fear. (Amazing Grace)

His love teaches me to love.

This year, my aim is to do two things.

  1. Be obedient as often as possible.
  2. Be faithful to God.

Some days it’s easy. Other days it is hard.

But I am learning to love God so much because of who he has been to me.

We love because he first loved us. 1 John 4:19

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 42

I boast of God’s goodness because he has been faithful to me.

He’s faithful because that’s who he is and not because I have “earned” it. Lol, there is nothing I could do to earn the love of man who has the earth as his foot stool.

Literally, nothing.

So, I’m grateful for his amazing grace.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 41

There are days when it feels like nothing is going right.

For example, I have been experiencing setback when I send documents for processing. I only see them being returned without being read or requiring minute (unnecessary) changes. On those days, I take my lunch hour seriously. I use the time to detach from work and life. I allow my mind to be free from stress.

What do I do? Watch a comedy online.

You see, when I feel frustrated, its hard for me to hear from Daddy. But when the lunch hour is up, I get back to work with an open mind. That is when I see Daddy showing me what to do.

So, they are asking me to point out something specific? Daddy’s instruction: they didn’t read the document so send it back and point out the sentence that answers/clarifies the matter.

Moral of the story: I no longer try to figure out problems on my own. I turn to my heavenly father who wants to instruct me and guide me (Psalm 32:8).

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 40

I may not have it all together. But Daddy didn’t instruct me to do that.

He told me to be patient with myself this year.

That’s what I will do.

I share my word from Daddy with you, “Be patient with yourself…” this year.

If you aren’t where you want to be, that’s fine. But be patient with yourself.

I rebuked the fear. It left.

I declared courage and boldness. They came.

… … …

The thing is, fear will always return and tell you to give up, try next year, or just don’t even start.

Fear will tell you that you are not good enough, are incompetent, and will fail.

But you see, God didn’t give me a spirit of fear. He gave me the spirit of power, love, and sanity.

Daddy told me to be strong and of good courage. He told me that he gave his angels charge over me.

That’s what I declared over my life after rebuking the spirit of fear. Afterwards, I did feel courageous in moving forward.

Don’t let fear hold you back. Rebuke it. Then declare God’s word over your life.

Deep breaths in and out 🌬

I practise to do that each time I start feeling overwhelmed or stressed. Yes, that’s currently how I’m feeling.

That’s how I usually feel even though I know God will take care of the situation or bring me over the hurdles. It’s human to feel. It’s natural to be anxious.

Daddy understands this. That’s why he encourages us not to be anxious for anything but to put it before him in prayer.

Put it before him today. That’s I’m going to do right now.

Daddy recently told me that I should end Daily Me. This was the instagram live I did on a daily basis (mostly).

In him instructing me on this, he said, “180 Days of Boasting About God.” I couldn’t believe it, but when I checked my feed, I did approximately 160 videos (not counting the ones I either deleted or was unable to save due to technical problems). Then, I counted the months from August to January and it is 6 months!

180 Days is basically 6 months.

I went live for 180 days and did not even realise it. Neither did I realise that in me teaching, I was also boasting about Daddy! But Daddy was up to something.

There is a new plan in store and I am excited to see it.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 36

I’ve been pouring out my heart to Daddy recently.

Like, really pouring out. I felt overwhelmed and discouraged. I kept seeing more being added to my plate without any sign of help. So I prayed that Daddy would remember me.

While watching an Instagram live last night, one of the speakers said something. She said that God was building capacity. Meaning that he was stretching some persons and that we would operate on 2 hours sleep, even when we thought it wasn’t possible.

That was and is my word. I’ve been asking how he expects me to do so much with so little support. I’ve always thought that four (4) hours of sleep was the least I could function on effectively. Why? As I age, I realised that I couldn’t pull the back to back all nighters like I used to when I was younger. So I stopped trying to do it.

But now, I’m ready for my capacity to be stretched.

God remembered Hannah.

God remembered Cornelius for what he did for the poor and in seeking God.

God remembered all that Hezekiah did for him.

This assures me that God will remember me. He will remember me in this struggle, in this depressing time, and in this weak period. I look to God for deliverance and for a speedy response.

Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me. Psalm 31:2KJV

Hey! God….God is good.

Today, I received a delayed Christmas card and sweets from the manager who didn’t like me when I just started working in the organisation.

I can’t believe the change God has effected in the workplace. This gift reminded me that things are not the same as they were initially.

The beauty about this gift is that I am temporarily relocated from that office. Yet the manager still set aside the gift for me and was concerned about how I would get it. She gave it to another staff member to drop off since she had a meeting in my area.

This is God. This is who I serve.
