The Power of Friendship

Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their work
If one falls down,
his friend can help him up.
But pity the man who falls
and has no one to help him up!

Also, if two lie down together,
they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?

Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken

The words of the Teacher in Ecclesiastes 4:9-12.

For SY

you came into my life
and saw beyond
beyond my smile to my tears
beyond my calm to my fears
beyond my words to my heart

you came into my life
and made me realise
realise that it's ok to be me
realise that I can trust again
realise I have what it takes

you came into my life
and showed me
showed me what friendship is all about
about giving
and being there

So I thank God for you, for your prayers and your patience. Thanks for being a friend, prayer partner, big sister, supporter's club and counsellor all rolled in one. My prayer for you is that God continually take you from level to level and always give you an UNCOMMON TESTIMONY.

I just want to remind everyone to take time to thank God for the people who He has brought into your life and to thank and appreciate them as well. The people who have cried with you, laughed with you, clapped for you, sat with you and stood by you at the times you needed it the most. They are precious and irreplacable. In a world full of disloyalty, backstabbing and mistrust let's count our blessings for the TRUE FRIENDS that we have.

Remember this is YOUR year of an UNCOMMON TESTIMONY. You are blessed and highly favoured.


N.B I just realise that today marks the 1st anniversary of this blog! I can't believe it, what a journey it has been. I have met so many people and made some true's a real blog family for me. Anyway I think this anniversary deserves a post of it's own! Anyways, to all who take the time to read, comment and pray for me, God bless you. I'm looking forward to the second anniversary!

Monday, 21 January 2008 EXTRAordinary!

It started as a very ordinary day
20th January 2008
Got up, got ready for service
A great one by the way!
Meditating on the message on the way home
When the text came
It said PRAY
I wanted to FEAR
but decided to PRAY

It started as a very ordinary day
20th January 2008
Got to the hospital
Heard all the negative reports
but decided to PRAY
saw the charts
but decided to PRAISE
saw the looks in their eyes
but decided to confess the WORD

It started as a very ordinary day
20th January 2008
After countless puffs of oxygen
three attempts at an epidural
tears and screams
at 9:05pm
the EXTRAordinary happened
T.O.M came into the world
and now Believer is
Aunty Believer

Please just help me praise God. He is just too wonderful. Mum, Dad and Babe are doing well. To all mothers out there, well done! Watching a child come into this world is an experience.

No matter what reports you hear, today CHOOSE to BELIEVE the report of the Lord.

Remain blessed and highly favoured

Don't give up

This morning while reading my Bible, a song came to me. I term it one of my more 'local' praise and worship songs that I sang as a child. It goes like this

everywhere He went
He was doing good
Almighty Healer
He healed the leper
When the people saw Him
they started walking
even TODAY
my Lord is doing GOOD

What really got me was the part that says that even TODAY..this very day..the 19th of January 2008..the Lord is doing GOOD. Sometimes when we have been waiting on the Lord for an answer to a specific need or a particular issue..the beginning of a new year sometimes seems bittersweet. We are happy to come into a new year alive and well but it is a reminder that the clock is ticking and we have been waiting. My encouragement to us is that even TODAY..our Lord is doing GOOD and in His perfect timing..those desires will come to pass in Jesus name.

In the Gospels..we hear about Jesus going from place to place..healing the sick, raising the dead, opening blind eyes, setting people free from demonic oppression and calming storms. Everywhere He went, He was doing good. I encourage you today to cling to Him and never let go..even though you are tired, just come to Him tired. If you can't stand He will carry you. As long as you are with Him, you will see that good. Never give up on that dream, just ask Him to come into the situation and watch Him work wonders.

I'm really expectant for good things this year. 2008 is our year of UNCOMMON TESTIMONY.

Remain blessed and highly favoured

Thank you for loving me
with my weaknesses
with my failures
with my insecurities
with my fears
with my DRAMA
but more than that
Thank you for loving me
to leave me that way

As I was reflecting today, I felt I heard him say..."Just come to me, as you are, where you are". Sometimes we think that when we want to come to Him, we need to be all good and perfect. It's ok to say that we are struggling, that we are unhappy or even afraid. Don't allow anything not even a mistake prevent you from coming to the ONE who loves you most. There's nothing about you He does not know and nothing will make Him stop loving you. Be rest assured when you spend some time with Him, He is willing and able to turn around every situation you may be facing..(yes, no matter how big it is, GOD IS BIGGER).

Have a blessed weekend. You are all BLESSED and HIGHLY FAVOURED.

Happy New Year!!

Welcome to 2008 everyone. I just thank God for His faithfulness in 2007 and I am looking forward to and expectant for great things in 2008!! I trust it will be the same for you. I was just spending some time in the quiet place and I was reminded of a statement that I had always confessed. It's something Bishop Eddie Long always has us say when he comes to preach in my church. It goes..


He said that...........
I am blessed and highly favoured
I am healed from every sickness and disease
I am redeemed, justified and forgiven
I am the head and not the tail
I am a new creation in Christ

because nothing is too hard for Him
because He who promised is faithful
because He watches over His word to perform it
because He is not slow concerning His promise
because His word can never return to Him void
because nothing is impossible with Him
because everything happens at the time God says it will

no more shaking...NO SHAKING
I am anxious for nothing but take everything to Him in prayer and thanksgiving
I am still confident that I will see His goodness in the land of the living

2008 has to be a great year. For me, it is a year of new things. A year of forgetting what has happened before and embracing the new things that the Lord has for me.I am standing on Isaiah 43:18-19. I am trusting God for the impossible and am determined to follow Him every step of the way and trust Him and lean not on my own understanding. It is well.

Remain blessed and highly favoured and once again, welcome to 2008, the best year of your life
