My Workshop Review! God is Good

I held my second workshop on 3rd November 2019. For me, it was an absolute miracle because I sometimes see myself as that shy, introverted little girl who stuttered. How can I lead a group of women through a workshop and get them to understand that there is more to them than they could ever realise.

I did what I could do and allowed God to do the rest. Trust me, I prayed and prayed that each woman would receive something that would challenge them to dust of their complacency and procrastination so they could move forward and be the best that they could be.

God has given all of us something to do. Our gift is never for us but always for someone else. It takes courage to use it for the benefit of humanity because we are always looking at our human limitations and negative experiences. We have to feel the fear and do it anyway. Take that step and believe that we can do what we came here to do and be the blessing to others that God called us to be.

I want to challenge you to take that step because someone is waiting on your gift. Someone needs your bravery and courage. Someone needs to hear your testimony, and someone needs to hear that you overcame and won. Humanity needs your strength and courage to keep going for themselves.

How long will you sit on what God gave you? How long will you allow your self-esteem issues to block you from becoming whom God created you to be? It’s time for a change, its time for you to get started and realise that YES you can do it. Your challenges in life have prepared you for this very moment.

So plan, set your goals, take that step and watch your rewards manifest.

 

 

Joseph ~ A Miscarriage of Justice

This morning I was listening to the story of Jospeh on audio bible and the thought came to me that he was the victim of a miscarriage of justice. He was excited about a dream that God gave him about his future and he shared it with his family. His brothers became jealous of his story and the special coat his father made for him.  This lead to a chain of events that saw him sold into slavery and then later imprisoned for a crime he did not commit at the hands of a woman who desired him.

This whole situation must have been so painful for Joseph and he must have asked many times what did I do to deserve this? But his integrity served him well and his gift made room for him. He became a powerful ruler in Egypt, second to Pharoh and he ruled over the very people who imprisoned him and sold him into slavery.

Have you suffered a miscarriage of justice by friends or family? Have you been accused of something that you did not do? Then take heart from the story of Joseph, your integrity in the situation will serve you well. What was meant to destroy you God will use it to elevate you. What was meant to ostricize you will bring you into the gathering and company of great men and woman.

Everything that has taken place will be used to turn your life around for good. Don’t let fear, resentment, anger or bitterness get in the way. Release the power of forgiveness into your heart and watch God use it to elevate you into your dream and vision as he did Joseph.

Dear Heart, God is not unjust to forget your labour of love. He has and will always be your shield, defender and the lifter up of your head. Don’t let your hands become weak and don’t let your knees became feeble. Pick up that plough and keep it moving because what you plough today will be a great harvest tomorrow.
