Sometimes I just look up and say, “This was no one but God.”
You don’t make decisions because they’re EASY;
You don’t make decisions because they’re CHEAP;
You don’t make decisions because they’re POPULAR;
You make decisions because they’re RIGHT!
Then the servants of the king of Syria said to him, “Their gods are gods of the hills. Therefore they were stronger than we; but if we fight against them in the plain, surely we will be stronger than they…Then a man of God came and spoke to the king of Israel, and said, “Thus says the Lord: ‘Because the Syrians have said, “The Lord is God of the hills, but He is not God of the valleys,” therefore I will deliver all this great multitude into your hand, and you shall know that I am the Lord.’”
1 Kings 20:23, 28
In the darkest moments of our lives, we often feel like God is a thousand miles away. God is with us on the mountaintops, we think, but in the valleys, we’re all alone.
Nothing could be further from the truth. In 1 Kings 20, the Syrian king was told that Syria had fought Israel on the hills and lost because Israel’s God was the God of the hills. So if they fought the Israelites in the valleys, they would win. Of course, the misinformed Syrians lost again because God is a God of the valleys too!
My friend, there’s nowhere you can go where you’re not covered by God’s mercy and grace. Whether you are in the pink of health or terribly ill in the valley of the shadow of death, He is with you and will never leave you nor forsake you. So don’t lose hope. The God of the valleys is your strength. He will uphold you with His righteous right hand and deliver you from your enemies!
Thank you for reading may you see the hand of God in whatever valley you are passing through today. If you want someone to talk to about anything please feel free to reach me out here
She’s still light talks louder and didn’t need you to confirm her pretty
She took off the garment of naive and clothed with confidence
She traded doubt for hope, faith and patience
Jesus had taught her to pick up her broken pieces and rebuild her castle
She was sure her future would gleam sparkle and dazzle
She is not the same girl you all knew yesterday they may look alike in some way but this kind is revised and simplified
SHE HAS CHANGED
You won’t find her weeping tears or living in an era of past tenses take no offence this version is here to stay no pretences
With a click in her step and a bounce in her walk, her voice as soft as a dove Yet mountains tremble at her mere talks
She is not the same thing the devil barked at yesterday they may share the same body But this soul will leave you in shock and dismay
She has been remodelled and reconstructed
SHE HAS CHANGED
She is building a thousand new doors for all the rust ones that shut in her face
She runs faster lives unapologetically
What will stop her perse ?
She is not a conqueror she is something more: she is more than a conqueror
Virtuous Inspirational Capable Victorious she’s a warrior
Those stones you threw at her those knives the devil strike her with
She has armed her new castle with brave soldiers gaurding it above and beneath
She has changed and no longer needs your seal stating approved
With determination and courage she rules because she’s able
Her nose button like
Her smile Graceful
Her mind persuaded
She walked through hell and left hell a tale
She Marched through the coals of fire and didn’t fail
This is her story and needs no further description
HAPPY BIRTHDAY APELELE
Today is one of the most important days on my Calendar my precious sister was born. I am extremely excited about her life and the Christian she is becoming. I’ve had the privilege to see her grow in her Christianity from day one. I thought on her birthday I would summarise it in a poem, because her Testimony is just incredible. I hope you love this piece …may God continue blessing you! Apple

The [uncompromisingly] righteous shall flourish like the palm tree [be long-lived, stately, upright, useful, and fruitful]; they shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon [majestic, stable, durable, and incorruptible].
Planted in the house of the Lord, they shall flourish in the courts of our God.
[Growing in grace] they shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be full of sap [of spiritual vitality] and [rich in the] verdure [of trust, love, and contentment].
[They are living memorials] to show that the Lord is upright and faithful to His promises; He is my Rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him. [Rom. 9:14.]
The truth is regardless of how you feel, when our Lord Jesus looks at you right now, he sees you as a mighty man or mighty woman of courage
My dear reader, no matter what state you are in right now and how messed up your life might be, no matter how many times you have failed and even if people around you have given up on you, the Lord Jesus sees the best in you. He sees your potential, your gifting, your call and your destiny to do great things in this life!
