Coming Back to a Heart Of Worship


Hello guys I know I have been away for a while, off social media for Abit. Well I have been going through a transition in my spiritual journey & also a couple of tests of faith here and there. 

Well I am back to my regular spiritual blogs as well as style blogs! I will try be more consistent because I know some of you love them so, please leave a comment below on what you would like see in terms of fashion based or spiritual blogs as well as entrepreneural blogs. 

I have gone through a season of just ignoring Gods advices and doing what I wanted. Being too lazy to spend time with God. Falling at every temptation the devil brought. But I have had to bring myself to realise that I am nothing without God. I don’t need to stay down again and I am no longer bound by my sin. I had to knock myself out of my lazy funk to spend time with God. I was really battling a spirit of laziness in my spiritual journey as well as school work… And although I wasn’t quite indulging in worldly ways I realised the peace that I used to harbour when I had been so crazy for Jesus had left me I had constant headaches from thinking about my business, school work… May I just say it’s not easy managing a business while you are a continent away… So a lot of that has been on my shoulder but I was taking up all this & forgetting the Kings of Kings who died to give me rest & all I have to do is worship Him and He can bring a big storm into instant calm.

Sometimes we get carried away by our lives and procrastinate on God. What would happen if God procrastinated me? How would I feel? Well I wouldn’t appreciate it very much. 

During this time I realised I went back to occasional cursing which I didn’t do, I was having unclean thoughts, I was allowing things into my heart that I normally wouldn’t, I wanted to be on the edge… And truly this is not a place I would be if only I had spent time with the Prince of Peace & if only when He told me stop and spend time with me Him I would have done it. 

If you are in this position come back to the spirit of worship. What I did is I got to my knees and I wept and I worshiped and I laid myself down for the Risen King and He took away all my sins and He took away all the heaviness. He even gave me a new perceptive on the things I had been killing myself thinking about. Get back to a heart of worship. There is no better way. I can tell what I want I want to get to a place where people see me and they instead see God that is my goal in life. I believe yours should be the same.. I can tell you something someone said about me ( not to blow my own horn) when they visited the MyCoutureKenya Boutique she said “oh and she really loves God” I can tell you that is by far the best compliment anyone has ever given me. I want to be identified with God. I want to be like Enoch who was said to have walked with God. I want to walk with God too! I want to be like David who was said to be a man after Gods’ own heart. I want to be a lady after Gods own heart. Do you? 

Thank you for reading this blog. It’s not like the others it’s more me.. Sharing my experience as Kingdom Child. Leave a comment on a topic you would like me to discuss on. GB

Special for you


Being an entrepreneur you tend to look upto people who are ahead of you in so many ways. This applies to many other ways of in life. Most of the time we either idolise or hate on these people… But today the Lord has put a special message in my heart. 

Maybe your out there seeing people starting things and going ahead of you, who are outrunning you and even get to the destination you have been wanting. I want us to look at today’s verse; Mary Magdalene had gone to the tomb after Jesus had died, when she got there she realised it was open so she went to get the disciples. She thought Jesus’ body had been taken away. 

Peter and other disciples came running and Although they all had started running at the same point Peter was out run. Perhaps it’s because He didn’t want to have to meet Jesus if He was still in the tomb; mind you he had denied Him 3 times…most of us have denied Gods involvement in our lives or our various livelihood, we have most probably praised our own efforts not that of God… And dread if we should meet him … We will just be like ” Hey God what hahapened was…. ” just as Peter may have been preparing to say… At best I would have told the rest to go & I can wait for them Incase they find Him… Haha the shame he must have had… But he still run to see if Jesus was there… Perharps your running on toward to see if by chance you have actually been called to this…

Okay so He got outrun, and so the others get there, and all they see are linens… Yes those you started with have most likely made it to where you all envisioned to be… But you see in the Text that although Peter had betrayed Jesus, He had probably lost all chance of being worthy of being with Jesus again… He was the only one who saw the folded napkin that suggested that  Jesus must have taken the time to fold the napkin… Meaning He didn’t quite leave the tomb in a hurry… Notice although the other disciples got there before Peter, He was the only one who saw this sign… God has preserved a new idea for you… Especially for you to see… Even if you have not been faithful to Him; the word of God states that in 2 Timothy 2:13 that “If we are faithless [do not believe and are untrue to Him], He remains true (faithful to His Word and His righteous character), for He cannot deny Himself.” So don’t be discouraged by the fact that they are already ahead of you in their grades, marketing strategy, pay grade…. God has left a special idea in the tomb that He makes a womb that will bear your special purpose. 

All you have to do is don’t stay back, don’t be ashamed to go back to the King, Even if you don’t find His Body, you will find His spirit lingering and and your sign/instruction/breakthrough left for your eyes only, at the perfect timing of the Lord.

My life is perfect why do I need God? 


I have a had the hardest month of my life this past month, I have been in test season this month… And as we all now it’s not easy… I broke quite a lot during this time… But victory belongs to Him. My faith was tested and I even got to the point when I was thinking although I wasn’t going to go back to the world I still didn’t want understand why I was having such a hard time yet now I am saved… I knew that salvation is a journey but I hadn’t experienced it… I was even asking my self when I wasn’t saved everything was much easier… But actually it wasn’t… It seemed easier, because I choose the Devils way to solve my problems.. The Devils way is always easier, he makes sure you find a wrong to take care of your problem because He knows when you reach a hard point we usually automatically turn to God… And When God turns up, we may not in turn turn back to him. So he wunt take a chance… He blindens you to think your okay without God. 

In today’s Verse we see that the people of  Judah were telling Jeremiah that they were okay when they were praying to the gods and they stopped is when everything went wrong. That’s how I felt during my test season… I used to be okay until I got saved but really that’s not the case, salvation is not a destination it’s a journey where there test along the way and each time you succeed you go to a higher level closer to God. So be happy when your tested because after it you will be closer to Him. 

 

As you see A few chapters before this… The people were desperate for Gods word even going to the point of saying that they will obey even if they didn’t Agree with it! Haven’t we all been there? Well I have, but when we get comfortable after the word of assuarance from God. Then we get cocky we think we can do without Him and blaming Him for our misfortune yet it is our filthy ways that make Him angry and He seizes to protect us and leaves us to ourselves, left for bad misfortune to toy with us. I for one don’t want to be left by God, I need Him, I can’t be without Him, I do not have the time nor the power to deal with misfortune. 

One lesson I learnt during my test season was that I had to prove what I had been promise God; my heart & soul. I learnt that Just like Jesus I had to suffer for my choice to be with God. But it is a worthy sacrifice just to get to see this God someday. I am still protected and and at the end of the day if I stay faithful He will save me, but I was still in the world the devil would offer me temporary solutions that take me far from Glory… And these solutions always run out on me, but with God the solution is everlasting, it never runs out on me, it’s always sufficient and it’s a true promise. You now have a full picture, you were not okay when you were not saved, you are now okay with Jesus, He takes care of you now, you don’t even have to solve your problems… Just worship Him, He will do the rest for you.

Just Leave! 

Many of us struggle to leave our unhappy place because we are more comfortable about where we know than where we don’t know. We don’t want want to take a risk of leaving our friendship groups/ ungodly relationships/Job/school/House that we have been apart of for a long time even though we may not be happy in those places or relationships. Mainly because we worry about what people will say, what if we fail, what if it doesn’t work out? So we decided to stay unhappy at the expence of our Joy. 

Before you consider leaving establish whether God wants you to leave that place or He is using you in that friendship group? Trust me the conviction will be present, just pray about it. 

Today’s verse we see a man who wanted to follow Jesus but wanted first to bury his relative; this in many ways could be first you want to enjoy the night life before you let God in; even when that life is draining you and your unhappy. Or it could be you don’t want to stop having sex with your unsaved boyfriend whom your not quite ready to let go of… Or you know God has called you to pursue your passion but you want to stay in your secure job although your unhappy… Jesus in turn told the man to leave his past because those in his past could work it out without him. I am sure the guy maybe thought Jesus was alittle insensitive as all your friends would think if you stop going out with them… but Jesus knew that. If you have been convicted to do something & your sure God has called to do something or has instructed you to change your ways… Truly there is no easy way to do it… Just leave… Just stop… Just don’t go back… What you are to gain with the support of the most High King is more than what your friend who you know talk behind your back can do for you? It’s not easy that’s why you need Him. Pray to Him for self control to stay away from those people or things… Be intentional about your obedience to His command… Plan how you will stay away from those things… Or if it’s a job and you have Been convicted to leave just leave… Remember God cannot give you further instruction on the next Job or where you will get a better healthy friendly relationships if you don’t leave the ungodly relationship or that Job He didn’t even tell you to apply. 

Remember being unhappy in your current situation doesn’t mean your not supposed to be there or you should quit. It could be God is using you at your work place or in your group of friends ( make sure your influencing them & their not wrongly influencing you), also it could be your in a season of testing. Pray for your answer before you leave… Remember it will not be easy when you leave… Abraham encountered a lot on his way to Canaan and he made foolish mistakes by going off course and going to Egypt instead of being steadfast and believing that God was going to provide during the famine…so stay steadfast, walk by faith and not by sight… He will be walking right with you as you walk away and toward the direction He will be leading you.

Are you self(ie)-obsessed? 

Was reading my devotional today… And I was there looking for a word of assurance from God. Because I felt that He hadn’t been there for me… I am currently enroute to opening my flagship store for my fashion brand My Couture Kenya and I can tell you now that it has been one of the most challenging things I have ever gotten involved in! So I was frustrated as to where was God when I have been trusting and praying for Him to come through and I was there angry; asking Him to give me a sign and telling Him He hasn’t been there, hoping He will give me a message of assuarance today but instead I found out I had been doing it the wrong way… It was suddenly all about me and what I want and none of Him and what He wants…

We are a selfie generation, we are so focuses on us! How our selfie looks how people will like it? How we can get a better angle of ourself that will make us satisfied with our self. We want us to look a certain way towards the masses. We want to look and portray ourselves a certain way to people. We are no longer intrested in how God sees and says about us. Whether we potray what God says about us or thinks of us. 

Even when we are praying we have made it all about SELF not and Him who we are supposedly Living For … That is if you have given your life to Him. In your prayer session do you just ask of Him or do you worship Him in truth and in spirit? Remember prayer is a communion and conversation with God… Are you doing all th talking and asking and asking or are you letting God speak too. 

In today’s verse we see God calling Samuel and see how he responded; ” speak Lord your servant is listening” Is that how you respond to God or are you looking to see who is watching you? What you want done to you? What you want done for you? Evaluate yourself. Prayer is not a ‘want-list’ but worship and communication session with the most high! 

Why is My Life stagnant?  

The Lord put in my heart to just reach out to some of us that feel like we are not elevating in life and we feel stuck and maybe don’t know why? It can be really frustrating to see you plans are stuck and somehow within your power there is nothing you can do about it! It really sucks. Some of us don’t even know that’s why we are in distress. But we are busy distracting ourselves doing things God didn’t tell us to do like; getting a new job and leaving the one God had called us to do; moving from course to course in uni; transferring school to school; moving careers; taking up a new business idea and leaving the stagnant one;getting useless friends that keep you busy in sin; getting into bad relationships that God didn’t tell us to be in… (Insert yours here) so what to do?

The definition of stagnant on Google is; showing no activity; dull and sluggish or a (of a body of water or the atmosphere of a confined space) having no current or flow and often having an unpleasant smell as a consequence. I want us to focus on the second one; there is no flow this no movement and thus it stinks! No one wants to be there… Ok let’s look at what the Israelites who were stuck in the desert for 40 years. Of all the places it was in the wilderness; realise no one gets stuck in a good place it’s always in an unpleasant place. Also the kept going round the same mountain over and over; notice that they were still moving in actual sense so this may symbolise the fact that you keep making your own moves from course to Course or job to job because you can’t elevate in your current state but you notice that even in your new business venture you still are not making more sales… The Israelites had disobeyed God and so they were caused to go round the same mountain. Could your sin be causing you to stay away from God because you feel cannot support you after what you did? Lies! God loves you… You just need to shut down these thoughts from the devil and seek forgiveness from God. He will give it to you! I assure you!

Or is it because you have been asking God to instruct you; show you what to do and you will obey just like what the Israelites told Moses; but then you always never follow His instructions. It’s too hard; why should I wait?; why not what I wanted?; but my friend said that doesn’t work? I already tried that? Remember the fisher men that Jesus found that had not gotten even one but when He told them to throw their nets back into the water one more time. They knew that because He was the messiah they had to obey. So they did and got many fish. If they argued with Him saying that we already did that, my friend told me it doesn’t work like that God… They could have missed out on a big catch… You could miss out on your next big thing! He is wise God, and He finds our knowledge primitive, the Word of God says lean not of your own understanding and in all you do trust in the Lord it also says “Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:5‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

Another reason could be God already gave His instructions but you were not in a position to Hear Him? You were busy moving into a relationship you weren’t told by Him to be in. So you were moving from bed to bed with men instead of being pure in His presence listening to the most High King. {See my Blog Here on how to hear & spend time with God } Remember when God told Abraham to leave His Home and go to the land He had given to him. It took Abraham 5 years to follow Gods instruction andGod never spoke to Him till He got to Canaan. Here we learn that He doesn’t give you another instruction till you heed to His last one. So do you feel like God is quiet and is not talking to you anymore? Could have instructed you and you didn’t hear Him or you did but your stubborn? How do you get out if you didn’t Hear Him? Well, seat before the Lord and ask Him to give you the instruction again and be obedient. God gives instructions to be obeyed! 

Okay so let’s stop being stagnant! Let’s stop distracting ourselves with ungodly things!lets stop being stubborn and arguing with God! Let’s walk by faith and not by sight! Let’s not lean on our own strength but of a God that has never being defeated! Let’s always be in a position to hear God… If you want a post on this comment below… Listen to God, Spend time with God and Obey Him! 

How I : study the bible

I thought I should start this series I call How I..? Basically sharing how I do something! What other way to start like How to read the bible? Not only will I share how to read it; but also how to understand and break it down as well us how to apply it and obey it! 

I used to find the bible boring! ( I am being 100% ) because I thought it was a book of stories that I had to read inorder to pass my Christian Religious Education but not until I realised that that the Bible is a manual for us to understand and know God prior to seeing Him in heaven; it’s a compilation of instructions on how to live on this earth, it’s a compilation of God choosen words that He would use to help me overcome this life….  ( I am not trying to deep) … Having this understanding gives me so much thirst to read it. There are 2 things that God has put above all, His Name and His word. Well then why not arm yourself with His word… What could defeat His Holy Word? Ok let’s then arm ourselves. 

Step 1: Position yourself to hear Gods Word:

What do I mean by position? I have previously mentioned that God’s voice is very still not loud. He doesn’t compete with the loud voice of the devil. So in order for you to hear Gods voice you need to be in a quiet room where there are no distractions ( ie: your phone, your child, your friends, Tv, radio) Set the mood in the room with prayer, just shake off your worries, call upon Him name, put some worship song, surrender all to Him Ask Him to guide you to what He Wants you to learn and ask Him to pour into you.( Habbakuk 2) 

Step 2: Pour your story over the Word. 

Put yourself in the story and then paraphrase the words as you jot them down. Ps Do not change the meaning of the word. Write down the key words. What is the principle of the word? Is it talking about distractions? Adultery? Forgiveness? 

Step 3: Pull out the spiritual principle from the paraphrase.

What is God trying to teach or promise you? What character of God does He want you to acknowledge? Is there a promise or a commandment ? 

Step 4: Pose the Questions.

Ask yourself am I heeding to this commandment? Do I believe God is going to deliver on this promise? Do I believe God who says He is? 

Step 5: Plan Obedience and Pin down a date to obey.

Strategise on your obedience. God doesn’t instruct just to be heard but to be obeyed. 

Alright I hope these tips will help you get to know God alittle better. I encourage you to get a bible the you understand. Also you can get the Bible Study app that I have been using to learn more about the Women of the bible and see what God wants me to learn from them. I hope these tips help you during your Quality time with God. Remember the word of God is sufficient. There is nothing that you may be going through that has not been covered in the bible. GB
