Think of an eagle. Great! Now picture it flying to heights unknown without losing focus. Perfect! Now you are in the right mindset to hear about this book.
As soon as I read the intro of this book I told myself that not everyone can SOAR because it is very different from basic flying. It is an action that does not require a special skill but a special person all together. My skill set is not enough to take me to the heights God has predestined for me hence I need to let Him renew me mind, body and soul to fit into the role. The beauty about all these is that it all starts from the ground. You have an endless room to create your take-off momentum. The questions are “are you willing to overcome all obstacles and rise? Are you willing to defy the odds?”
If you are an entrepreneur or you want to be one this book is a must have. Check it out it is a key to mind opening knowledge.
I never thought I’d sit down and color a book but as soon as I got this one I was hooked. It’s amazing how colors can tell you about yourself. On a good day the colors are beautiful and in sync. On a distressed day the confusion, frustration and all negativity is displayed in the choice of colors. This form of journaling has allowed me to open up more and to be well versed with my inner man. Check out this book and get ready to be changed. It’s also a great way to bond with your kids and the verses in there are great.
Hold up right there! Did you read the title? Now go back and read it again. Good now you think I’ve absolutely lost my mind. I just finished reading thousands of comments off someone’s instagram. I am sweaty, I have heart palpations and I might also be undergoing emotion overload. It started with a meh feeling, then I was laughing, then angry and finally I’m just dissapointed at how much we invest on things that don’t profit us.
This celebrity posted a very vague post, vaguely describing a moment of faliure and in there was also a very generic apology. To me as a regular stalker😊 (Yes I am a certified stalker) this post was just something I would have overlooked. One because his life is non of my buisness apart from the part I enjoy observing their lives and two because his life does not affect mine in any form or manner. As I spent most of my free time (I should have taken a nap instead) reading those comments I noticed that people were so offended and hurt by this man’s action even though he had failed his family and not the public. This got me thinking of how we allow people to have influence over us just because they’re famous. We have actual soul-ties to celebrities who barely care about us. We have attached ourselves to ships that are sailing in the opposite direction of our destined path because that ships looks brighter than your own. I would understand if this person had done something to disrespect others like maybe being racist or sexist or whatever public offence but he was talking about his personal issues. We have integrated ourselves into other people’s lives that even when a family is going through crisis it ruins your life. Some of us the only thing separating you from the Kardashian family is your last name. You already have assigned yourself a place in their house. SMH!
Anyway now that my rant is over and I’ve exposed my stalking tendancies😉 let me drop some wisdom. All that glitters is not gold. Don’t waste time coveting lives of people just because it is displayed perfectly on camera. Use that time and energy to create a life of your own. Don’t get so caught up in other people’s lives that you miss building your own. Remember if you place yourself into my life most probably as I fight my demons they’ll attack you too because you have made yourself a part of me. Be you and when you feel need to see how
other people’s lives are going borrow my stalker glasses. Now go in peace and sin no more😂😂😂 (Okay that last part I’ve been dying to say for a while)

I was talking with one of my girls a few weeks ago about the kind of man we would like to marry and I noticed something so interesting. We have been friends for many years and as we grew this list changed. At first it was mostly physical and financial qualities that we cared about most, then we got saved and we wanted a God fearing man but now being saved and cute ain’t enough anymore. We just don’t want you to be saved but we want people with a relationship with God. Not a casual relationship where you flirt with God when you’re lonely or when your life is messed up but a full-time committed relationship.
We live in a time where if you put salvation or God fearing as a prerequisite that you will end up with the fools who say “I am spiritual but not religious.” Baby even demons are spiritual, the question is simple “What is your relationship with God? ” Most ladies are busy making a list of how we want a man who can be a priest in our houses but are you a woman enough to serve the priest?
Can you submit to him as you submit to God? Guys can God entrust you with her life? Are you sensitive enough to the Holy Spirit to hear His will for you?
As soon as you think of it this way you will realize that you don’t want just a saved guy or girl. You want a person who knows God and has an outstanding relationship with Him. A person who is okay with seeking God to get to you. A person who God can entrust your future to. A person that can prophesy over you, guide you,pray over you, declare and decree God’s will over your life, love on you unconditionally and protect you. Yes being saved is not enough🤔🤔🤔
Psalms 119:11 “Thy Word have I hidden in my heart that I may not sin aganist thee.” This words have been stirring in me a hunger for God even in my daily life. Yes I do struggle with sin but I’m encouraged that with God’s Word I can stay away from sin.
By being around people I’ve learnt that ponography is an epidemic. It is a dirty secret in very many people’s closets. It rarely starts in a dramatic way like you might be thinking. It rarely is introduced to you by a pervet friend or abusive relative, most of the time it’s by accident. Simply clicking on the wrong links or from a pop-up on your screen. The first time I ever saw a porn video was actually as I was doing a school assignment and I clicked on a link and the screen was filled with it. At this point I had a choice to look away or to look into it. I choose the latter. I used the excuse of wanting to learn more about sex (as if sex ed was not enough🤔). In that moment I not only fed my curiosity but also my mind and heart. This aroused things in me that I never thought existed. Lust flared in me like a bon fire in dry weather. One peek couldn’t satisfy the beast I had just brought to life in me. I went through each category and watched all different scenes and even bookmarked some for later. Fast forward to a few weeks later the watching turned to watching and masturbation. The seed of lust that I had planted grew beyond anything I could satisfy. Until I decided enough is enough.
I went to the Bible and allowed God to speak to me. First I reminded myself that my body is God’s temple so it had to be a holy ground. I repented and asked God to forgive me and also to cleanse me. Then I asked God to deliver me from the spirit of lust. The best part was when I started reading the word to myself anytime my mind started to tread back to my previous ways. I can truly atest that the Word has never failed me. It has held me solid till now that I don’t even struggle with the issue. I know by now you are wondering why I had to lay my heart this way✋. I had to assure someone who is struggling in sin that they are not alone and also that there is a way out. I am not the first to be bound neither I’m I going to be the last but from my experience we can learn a few things.(well unless the devil takes a vacation😂) When it gets tough allow God to talk you through it. His word is His voice to you and through it you will be delivered. The word of God is like a double-edged sword, it works for you, with you and aganist your enemies. Don’t allow the devil to win, use the word. Speak like Jesus and say “IT IS WRITTEN” because even the devil knows that Heaven and earth shall pass away but the Word of God shall stand forever.

Recently I wrote a piece entitled The T word and sometime after I came across this book. Trusting God is one of the hardest things for believers because none of us want to give up full control of our lives. When I looked at the cover of the book and noticed that she describes the book as “Find the Joy of Trusting God at All Times, in All Things” I was intrigued. It is not just trusting God but doing it with Joy. Allow me to walk you through the things that stood out most for me. (PS:I could just quote the whole book because it is that good💯)
I wouldn’t have guessed that a simple gesture like trusting would make my life easier. As described in the first chapter “Trust enqbles us to live without weights, burdens or cares.” This simply means that when you put your trust in God you are casting your cares to Him and as the Bible says if we cast our cares to Him He will take care of it. All I keep thinking since I read this book is how great life is when I trust God. I think this right here is the cure of depression because if I lay everything to God I don’t have to worry anymore.
Then Joyce goes ahead and quotes words I always say “You can’t trust anybody these days.” For some reason I was expecting her to give me a tap in the back and say “My child you are indeed very correct” but lo and behold I was so far from being right😏. She has explained in detail how just because you cannot trust everyone doesn’t mean you can’t trust anyone. It is amazing how she has even described how to trust according to the scriptures ( Trust me *pun intended*😉 by now I’m a changed person and this is just chapter 3)
Trusting is not a passive exercise. Sorry guys but just like every gift it is very active. You don’t just trust and sit back, you work on it and for it. “Trusting God means that we cast our care on Him and refuse toworry or be anxious about anything, but it does not mean that we cast our responsibility away” says Joyce. Ain’t it a great thing that we just have to work without wasting our time and energy worrying about the what ifs of life? (By now you should be a new creature🤔 after that lesson).
Lastly I will share my best part because I’m tempted to keep talking about this book all day. She has two chapters entitled In God’s Waiting Room. These chapters have impacted my life greatly because they tackle the aspect of patience in trust. It gets harder to trust when you have to wait on God but in those times you should trust Him even more. I being one of the people who try to ‘help’ God in helping me have found this lessonto be pricessless. She even says thst God has forever to work things out. He is not limited by our deadlined and timelined but He will always show up in His appointed time. The beauty of it is that God will never be late, He will always show up on time to rescue you. Getting your mind to trust God will take you a long way. Thinking moulds our attitudes which in turn moulds our reactions. If you aspire to think positively even through the gruesome waiting period you will come out the other side encouraged and victorious. Wait with hope and obedience!!!
Okay this book just put me into a knowledge coma. You cannot miss to read this life changing book because after all when did it hurt to get better🤔.
