Hidden Tears of Hurting Years

God of my untold stories,
Thank you for bringing me this far.
God of my unseen victories,
Thank you for healing every scar.

God of my waiting years,
Thank you for your matchless grace.
God of my hidden tears,
Thank you for your warm embrace.

God of my hard-learned lessons,
Thank you for your will and wisdom.
God of my sweetest seasons,
Thank you for this faith and freedom.

For the blessings eyes cannot see,
I am forever grateful.
For the precious blood that set me free,
I am more than thankful.

A few months ago, I went through a severe storm that almost made me drown in depression again.

What kept me afloat was the last strand of my faith in God. I have lost many friends in the process, I felt completely lost and lonely. I became weak and weary. I kept my eyes on mountain tops even in the darkest rock bottom.

Life became a dark tale of pain and pressure but through it all, I held onto God, He kept me safe and made me sail through without losing my joy. In the midst of it all, His love became more real to me, His light guided me, and His joy was my strength. I am still healing. I am still believing in God for total restoration. My faith still stands in the deep.

In all of this, I have learned to be thankful even when I’m going through hell and high water. God knows, God sees, God hears. Thank you for reading.

Be encouraged my friends. Praise Him even in your pains.

November New-No

To enjoy new beginnings,
you must enforce necessary endings.

November bellows, “it’s the 11th-month lovelies!” Congratulations to those who are celebrating their birthday, wedding anniversary and other achievements this month. Feel free to send me invites. I love celebrations.

2020 has been a year with many highs and lows, ebb and flow, yeses and nos. Regardless, the clock and the calendar keep clicking. 

No one is rich enough to purchase the past, and no one forfiets the future because of poverty. Choice is a generally accepted medium of exchange in the market of life. You can’t change the past ten months but you can choose what the last two months of 2020 will birth for you (not how it will be).

Whatever the atmosphere may be wherever you are, I want to invite you to start a journey to newness by speaking life over yourself this month. Say “NO” to anything that breaks you down, and “YES” to the everything that will build you up. Here are my wishes for you this month.
