"I'll Trust You!"

Image
I Trust You. Such powerful words to exchange, to let someone know that no matter what happens, what is said, what is done, you trust them.
How many times has these powerful words been abused, taken for granted or felt like they have been trampled on? I've had my share of people breaking my trust a few times. I was not impressed at all. But at the end of the day I had to learn either to walk away from that person or forgive that person especially if they genuinely didn't mean to misuse my trust. Which one do you choose? The famous saying: 'It takes years to build up trust and only seconds to destroy it.'I've always said to actually trust someone is to believe in them, believe in your relationship with each other knowing that they will not do anything intentionally to hurt you.  But the reality about it all, is that we are all just humans, we fail at times and we are not God!
God on the other hand never fails, as much as some may not believe this, its true. He is always …

"Oh You Single Women"

Image
Where do I begin?
To me this subject is always a sensitive one. This topic along with other subjects was discussed in my church Pastorate (Bible group) a few days ago and yes we had a few people (women) ask majority of the single, dating questions. Surprise, Surprise.
See the thing is, what does being a single woman actually mean?
To me, being single means not married yet. Then you might ask, what about Dating? Dating means, being interested in someone who might potentially become your partner, that is to say you ‘like’ them; if not you move unto the next one (this can be very dangerous). But Biblically speaking, dating didn't exist. Plain and simple. Therefore I go back to my first example: Single means ‘NOT’ married.
Being single for me has had its lows & highs. I write this blog not only from my experiences but also from observation.
I’ve had my share of ‘dating’; I’ve even been close to being married at one point. But at the end of the day, something was clearly Wrong or Missin…

"Why settle for less when you can have God's best?"

Image
You may be a humble person to appreciate what you get even if it’s not how you hoped it to be and then just settle down knowing deep down inside, you could have got or done more.

It's about time we took greater steps of hope in believing, even if you haven't got that thing or conquered that situation as you hoped to, the next time YOU WILL. There are great things to achieve in this world that we live in. We just need to stop settling and start claiming...
You may say, ‘well Faith I really did try all I could to keep this relationship going, I've given my all, but yet still, s/he doesn't show me know respect or love’… Uhh that means you are working too hard for someone’s affection which they don’t want to give you.
I believe if in a relationship and you feel you have tried all you can to show someone how you really feel and they are not showing you back, even when you have spoken about it to them and they don’t acknowledge it. Then clearly that person doesn't value your…

"Beauty Cries Out..."

Image
After hearing some unpleasant news from my mum last night. My first reaction was Godddd, really I just don't get it. We serve you, try to walk faithful with you & this happens?
Now for those who knows a little bit about my family history, knows we had a lot shake my family from my parents health, lack of jobs, finances issues etc...But the only thing we knew how to do is cling unto God. So when you hear me mention Him a lot I express my true relationship with Him, this isn't 'religion' speaking but saved by GRACE speaking.
So I woke up this morning had one of those conversations with God, where I just talked, spoke His promises & just prayed...my house at this moment felt so gloom the dim lights didn't help... But in the mist of this battle, in the mist of this lady almost giving up, feeling she'd had enough...I step out my front door & was welcome with a bright day , a fresh smile from Heaven as the clouds opened up....what was this? I've left…

"Confidence/Self Confidence"

Image
Confidenceis generally described as a state of being certain either that a hypothesis or prediction is correct or that a chosen course of action is the best or most effective.Self-confidenceis having confidence in oneself.(From Wikipedia)
Having confidence can seem like a great challenge to take on board, but it is great to see that having self-confidence enables you to achieve and accomplish the best results in life and in any situations you may face.
I remember a last year let’s say August 2011; I wanted to go for a HR and Recruitment Administrator role. Fear tried to creep in and state that I will not be suitable, or the role is too complicated or hard for me to do. However I had to shut these thoughts down and seek the truth within myself to remember who I was including what my talents and abilities where. From this point self-confidence was invited and I said ‘Yes I can do it’. I applied and was given the job in which I learnt so much.
The thing is, with gaining confidence, fear alw…
