I’ve lost a lot in order to become the woman of God I am today. When we draw closer to God, we can end up suffering on many levels–but suffering in the name of Jesus is a high compliment. (1Peter 4:14) “If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.” God is preforming surgery in my life. The process will hurt but the end result will save my life. God is removing things and people I do not need. He is removing any and everything that is not of him. I understand the cutting may hurt but I am trusting the process as he removes these tumors. When God is calling us to serve him he will equip us. When we let go of things that are in the way of us becoming closer to him,he will supply us with exactly what we need. He will convict us of what needs to change in our lives, and this won’t always be easy. There will be external consequences. but internal rewards. And external rewards. And heavenly rewards 🙂 It is hard being separate from the world when you live in it… But God is worth losing everything for. I will choose him over everything. The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?

This Picture 2 years old this is also the first picture I took after moving out of my mom house by the expression and emotions on my face I was tired pissed and fed up ! I did not want to be Controlled judged mocked or follow rules anymore so One day On that faithful February Cold Morning I woke up 6:45 am and said Fuck this Shit! And packed all of my shit up call my friend to come get me and kissed my little sister goodbye and said Be Good😘😢 left without a trace I got a text message from my mom saying oh you moved out? and I said yes the heck I did and hour later everybody and they damn momma blowing up my phone I'm like how thing 1 and thing 2 got my number😂🤔 All of sudden everybody care about me and begging me to come back to my momma house when I left that day I listened To Lenny Kravitz Fly Away a million times and Listened to Mariah Carey CAN'T take that away from me a million times cried and prayed tears of joy !!! And said I am no longer under nobody's rules or control I am independent and I can do what the fuck I want to do always and Forever..... I disappeared for 7 months nobody in the family on both sides didn't know where I was I changed my number changed my appearances a lil bit to go u recognizable and unnoticeable.... I've been planning this stunt in my head for years and it all played out just like how I pictured it and seen it in my mind in my dream and in my vision ...... I refuse to be controlled and let somebody tell me what to do or use me .....my parents barely told me what to do and couldn't control me what makes you think imma let you control me..... them later on my mom ask me why did I left and left without permission and I said well I don't like being controlled and people being mean to me and you said if we don't follow your rules we can leave your house and then ask me to come back after months later and I respectfully said no because I was happy that I was all alone and I spread my wings and loved my freedom.#tbt
Waking up in Zimbabwe for the couple couple of days has been "hectic".Fuel queues,increasing prices everyday, shortages of goods in the market, businesses closing, rates that go up like crazy by the day..We are just dealing with so much uncertainty and it's getting people agitated. I still smile not because my life is all roses and rainbows but because I know whom I belong to.His word everyday really assures me that I will never need to worry or be anxious for anything because he has got Me. We need to all pray for this nation because only God can make right all that's wrong in Zimbabwe.I choose not to worry or be shaken but to stand in faith and prayer for my beloved Zimbabwe #zimbabwe#faithandprayer#prayer#smilesoffaith#itiswell#prayerworks#prayerchanges#faithful#hopeful#hope#summerdays#summerhats#summerishere#loved
When things start happening and you can't take credit for it - that's when you begin to realize it was never about you, but what God is doing in and through you. I don't know about you, but It wasn't until I stepped aside and realized I'm not the main character in this story, I was able to see what God was actually doing in me. I can't save people, Jesus does. There's nothing I can do on my own to make me holy - only God does this in me. Can we fight this spiritual battle with flesh & blood? Nope. God said in my WEAKNESS, His strength is a perfect match to do things for HIS glory - not mine! Humbled. Be centered on how God can get the most glory out your life, and you'll be surprised how God can use us as crooked sticks to draw straight lines pointing to Him.
I've always felt that paschima namaskarasana was a physical way of saying "the Divine has your back". An awkward shape, turning the arms inward and making the palms meet behind the back (truth be told, my hands should be higher, but I'm working on it 😉) takes patience, care and flexibility, all of which just emphasize the metaphor, at least to me. Why? The prayer is the key part of the pose, but it is not in our line of sight. Do we still believe in prayer when we can't see whether or not it's working or things aren't going our way? Turning the arms in such a way takes care and alignment, as if to remind us that the direction we turn toward should be aligned with our truth and carefully chosen. When we seek Divine Guidance (pray, ask for signs, meditate, call it what you want) we might not get the answer we expect or can see; having faith despite our preferences takes patience, flexibility and trust. Here is the best part, though: secret of getting the palms to join, lies in the lift of the heart. By lifting the heart UP, it makes more room for the hands to join. (and isn't THAT the real metaphor right now?) Opening and lifting the heart to make room for the prayer requires trust--trust that we will eventually be shown that although things seem awkward or difficult now and we can't see the answers in front of us now, ultimately everything will always unfold as it should...because the Universe has our back. #namaste🙏⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💜⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💜⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🧘🏻♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💜⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💜⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #yoga#yogaoffthemat#yogaeveryday#mindfulness#prayerchanges#inspirationalquotes#inspiration @accessiblespirituality #spiritualtoolbox#possibility#yogateacher#spiritualawakening#mindfulliving#soulgrowth#innervoice#innertruth
