180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 155

🙌 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.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 133

😭 I am so TIRED!

Still, my tiredness is evidence that I completed my exam and was able to submit in time. Though I am not pleased with the level of completion, I am thankful that God gave me the strength to process the information and put it on paper.

And I’m always grateful for my family who keeps checking in on me throught the exams. God gave me a beautiful family.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 69

After days of feeling sad, I feel hopeful.

I feel like everything will be alright.

I feel light.

I don’t feel overwhelmed.

It’s like everything clicked into place over the two days.

Grateful for the same things.

He’s a faithful father.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 32

God (Daddy),

Thank you that all things have worked together for my good so far.

Thank you that I am able to pull through because you have given me strength.

Thank you for being a guide, teacher, and father.

I love you and I am grateful for who you are in my life and in this world.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 167

In times of failure, I can be grateful.

Best believe, I did not always respond like this. I used to be discouraged and demotivated when I failed at something. But now, it’s not as easy for me to sink into depression. It’s working for my good.

So, what did I fail?

A few courses. I was finally able to obtain the remaining tuition without taking another loan. This in itself in a testimony which I will share tomorrow. So with the tuition cleared, I got to see my grades.

I passed most with flying colours but the others was a flat fail. But I was honestly able to do a fair assessment of my performance and I was not pleased. You see, that semester was extremely hard with everything going on. And I know it was the same for other students, as I heard them share. Due to the online nature of the workplace now, it became easier to have multiple meetings in one day.

Moreover, the company would never peacefully give me time off to attended classes (trust me, I tried it initially and the response from high level persons, for an entire semester, was more stressful than doing seven courses!) So, I did all my courses without requesting time to attend classes. And so far, I’ve only failed four of the twenty-seven courses. Isn’t God good?

For the courses I failed, I was barely able to attend classes due to meetings being called during those times. And based on my overall workload, listening to all the recordings was not possible. But I did the exams and submitted them even though I knew the result.

But I’m thankful because now I will get time to re-do those courses and actually learn them. I will be able to actually do my best, rather than simply making an attempt. Thanks, Daddy for transforming my reaction and for showing me the “for my good” in failure.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 80

Simply grateful.

This is my simply grateful series. Nothing else seems “right” to talk about for now.

Yesterday, I was thankful for continued health.

Today, I am thankful for daily protection. Usually, I ask Daddy for protection when I’m on my way to work or on a trip. Yet, every single day, without fail, he has protected me every minute.

I can go about life and travel near and far or I can stay at home all day. Regardless of where I am, I’m safe. Not because I have the best security system in the world, but because I have the ultimate Watchman on looking out for me.

Thank you, Daddy. You said I must not be afraid of the terror by night or the arrow which flies by noonday…. None will come near me (Psalm 91:5).


180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 79

While the world grapples with the effects of the virus and sadly we hear of so many persons dying from it…

I am grateful for being virus free so far.

Pray for those who are hurting and have suffered loss because of the pandemic. One thing I’m sure about is that God will hear us.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 76

Whew, yesterday was hectic!! But Daddy showed up!

I can’t begin to explain the work pressure in just one morning. It was unbelievable.

1. I had a class I wasn’t able to attend due to work engagement, so I had to prepare the document for another classmate to present for me. That was unfinished and the work meeting was to start at 9am.

2. Aside from that, I had a training session scheduled from 9am-12pm. Two of my coworkers volunteered to facilitate two of the four sessions. Then one offered to do my two topics since my other meeting would possibly run overtime, but on the condition that I prepare the presentation for the topics. That preparation wasn’t even started at 9am.

Here’s what happened…. 👇

I prayed. I said, “If God could only make one thing cancel!” Well… Nothing was cancelled.

However, the 9am meeting was pushed back to 10am, giving me time to log into to the training and listen in while finalising the school work and send it off. And also, at 9:30am, the push back gave me time to attend a brief urgent meeting called by the CEO.

Then the pushed back meeting was cut short as some of the persons declined the invitation to attend 💃💃. Look at God! So I could go to the training before it ended.

But what about the presentations that my co-worker kept reminding me to send? Amazingly, the first presenter ran way over time, setting back the second presenter! Thus, setting me back. 🙌🙌. Then the client called and asked if we could merge the last two topics into one and present it within 30 minutes. Of course I said yes!

For the presentation, I quickly put together about 10 slides, as I knew the topics. So, I only placed the main and important aspects on the slides. By the time the second presenter ended at 12:07pm, I was putting the finishing touches on my presentation. I informed my co-worker that I’d make the presentation, and I did. I ended in 31 minutes.

Now, that was Daddy causing so many delays. Each delay miraculously made a hectic and impossible day flow super smoothly!

Thank you, Daddy 🙇

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 59

Grateful for the things God didn’t allow to happen 🤗

Imagine if I’d actually eloped right out of high school? I’d either be miserable or divorced…. Or both 🙆

Imagine if during depression I’d gotten my wish to be dead? I’d be dead and not see how joyful my life turned out to be 🙆

He doesn’t give us everything we ask for… My heart rejoices.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 10

Daddy doesn’t need any help to fight his battles.

As I reflected on the first few chapters in 1 Samuel, I realised two things:

1. The ark was stolen from the Israelites in a battle with the Philistines. And not one person attempted to go for the ark after it was stolen. Not one. They simply mourned the loss of the ark and then took up worshipping false gods.

2. In spite of no one going to retake their rightful possession of the ark, Daddy fought for himself. The Philistines placed the ark in a room with their god and Daddy kept hitting it over until the third day, he severed it’s head. Then he caused tumours to come upon the people until they placed the ark on a cart tied to a cow and watched it head straight to Israel territory.

He literally doesn’t need us. Yet he finds pleasure in operating through us. I am humbled that even though he can fight his own battles, he choses to use me to fight some with him.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 3

Whew. I have been feeling rather overwhelmed with sadness recently. So I laid in bed and began telling Daddy how unhappy I felt.

Then I stopped. Yesterday, I was able to clear some important expenses that amounted to 34,000JMD. I stopped telling God of my sadness because I realised that I never told him thanks for helping me to clear those expenses.

You see, last month, I looked at the fact that my student loan insurance, university miscellaneous fee, and credit-card bill all needed to be paid in September. All added up to the amount mentioned above. I remember sitting in church contemplating taking out a loan to cover those expenses and help me balance my finances for the next few months. However, I felt God speak to me. Immediately, I opened my e-diary, I wrote the following instructions:

“God will make a way.  Trust him.  Look to him. 
Stand still (do nothing, stop) and see the salvation of the Lord.  Do not be impatient.”

I knew it was an answer to my contemplation. Stand still. I remember responding to God and told him, “okay, I won’t take out the loan”.

Now, my expenses were cleared from a financial plan I had entered and received my returns. All expenses cleared, and no loan was taken out. Sadness aside, Daddy, I am truly and deeply grateful for telling me to stand still and be patient while you made the provisions available.

Thank you!!

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 179

It’s the eve of the finale.

Wow. It would be crazy not to boast about the God who did all this through me, right?

I started this 180 Days of Boasting about God because I read how King Nebuchadnezzar boasted about himself and his kingdom for 180 days. And I was like, “what if we boasted about God that much”?

I remember being 10 days in and I was like, 10 days??? I have 170 left! What am I going to say about God for the next 170 days! There were days when I was bursting my brain, trying to figure out what to share.

But I prayed about it. And it got easier and easier with each passing day. So much so that at times I’d write 2-3 days’ posts in advance.

Now I’m at the eve of the finale and I don’t want it to end. So I boast about the God who gave me experiences with him so that I could share with you. I boast about the God who is so amazing that I just want to keep talking about how loving, patient, and kind he is to me.

I boast about the God who has allowed me to live to share 179 days about his love, his character, his guidance, his friendship, his parenting, and his unfathomable ways.

Daddy, you know that I would have given up if it were left to me. But you encouraged and reminded me to post. You gave me new experiences and reminded me of old ones to share.

Thank you for the new followers along the way who more than doubled since I began. Thank you for the persons who never missed a day reading about you. Thank you for giving me this awesome experience to boast about you, I’m honoured.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 163

God did something that I still can’t believe really happened. I can’t believe it to the point where I have not shared the good news with many persons.

I had unconsciously mapped out my work plans for the year: go to cubicle 2 in the office and be productive. That’s all.

However, in the middle of June, it was announced that the supervisor, cubicle 5, would be leaving for a higher appointment on July 20. I was happy for her. I mentally assessed the candidates as assumed that cubicle 7 would be appointed to act as supervisor. I was fine with this as my plans remained the same: sit at cubicle 2 and be productive.

Long story short, I sat in cubicle 5 on Monday, July 20, 2020. I still haven’t acknowledged the reality of it yet because, as I said earlier, my plans were to sit at cubicle 2 and be productive. But, you see, God’s plans are different and he doesn’t always work with our plans.

I’m grateful for this opportunity to sit at cubicle 5 and I pray daily that whether I’m in that post for a few months or a year, I aim to be productive and do the will of my Father.

His plans are good. His plans are some times unexpected.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 94

Another day of listening to that still small voice, and again it was the right choice.

I woke up and went to my dining table – my new work area and class/study room – at 9:00am. I began preparing for 2 upcoming tutorials as I waited for an online work meeting to begin at 10am. After the meeting concluded, and I finished and submitted my other work task for the day, I decided resumed my prep for class. By this time, it was around 2:00pm. As I read, I felt tired and contemplated resting or pushing ahead so that I could finish one course and start the other.

I decided to go to bed, lie down and nap, until about 4:30pm to get myself ready for the 5pm class. At the appointed time, I woke up and grabbed my phone to find the link sent by the tutor. Instead of a link, I saw an apology for his absence and a notice that he’d resume lessons next week.

I shock my head and said, “after all the time I spent trying to prepare for this class?” Then I stopped and thanked God. I was able to get some well needed rest. God knew that the class would be cancelled. I am grateful for the additional hour to prepare for the 6pm class. I am grateful for the additional time to continue preparing for that topic.

Be obedient to his prompts.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 62

It is said that in the midst of life, there is death.

On my way to a funeral today and I remembered that saying.

But still, I am grateful for life. Thankful for another day to make an impact in the kingdom of God.

I serve the controller of life.

Thank you!

I now have 50+ followers and I want to take the time to say a big, heart-felt THANK YOU!

I do not take your likes, comments, or follows lightly. With every new comment, like, or follow, I tell Daddy thanks for allowing you to find my blog. Thank you!

I love you! Blessings.
