"Why your eyes so chinky? is it because you've been smoking and drinking?"

Hey Beauties,

It has been an interesting season. For me, it has truly been a blessing. As a Christian, a lock down should be another opportunity for God to come through for you in your life.

Evangelism and shepherding have been interesting in this season. We have been encouraged as a church to use Facebook to invite people to join watch parties where our church service is streaming live. As I was desperately trying to create a dummy profile for one of my guests that could not access her own profile, I used an email address for a Facebook account that I believe I deleted many years ago. I ended up logging into my old one, in the attempt of using my email address to create a new one!!

Shock horror. Turns out the profile was not deleted!!

Many people have Facebook profiles with their oldddd pictures. I had to start again and leave that life behind. This is reminiscent of 2 Corinthians 1:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

After all the years of being a "Party Queen", "Top Model" in the making and going in and out of relationships, with thousands of "friends" on that profile, I knew I had to move on. 

I saw a particular picture of myself 10 years ago, when I had just broke off my engagement and left that guy. I was so thankful and amazed upon reflection, on what He has done in my life and continues to do. Every Queen Esther has a Mordecai, so when I was in the world I always had a guy by my side. Now that I am in Christ the same occurs. So side note, just because you see me with a guy now, does not mean he is my partner! Most of these men were my brothers and played the part of my bodyguard when I was at the club. I saw pictures that I was tagged in and decided to share a few with you.

Believe me when I say that I went hard for the world. I put in so much effort to find the perfect dress, shoes, make up etc. I went out of my way to flirt, cheapen myself than lower than the royalty that I really am. I ran my mouth, engaged in silly arguments and prioritised the wrong thing. By the time I realised, I had not created any real friends and just had raving groups. 

So I will indeed write my books, speak and encourage, live out my purpose and be the woman that God has called me to be! Regardless of whether people support, acknowledge, embrace or become a fan. I know who I do this for!

I wasted some few years in the wrong thing, but God being the awesome God that He is has used it for my ministry, because nothing goes to waste with Him, He gets all the glory.

I want to encourage you that God is changing you, you may not see it now but one day, it will all come flooding back to you. I still have a journey to go, but I am in a really good place. All to the glory of God. I will never forget what God has done for me!! 

Acts 19:20 (NKJV)  So the word of the Lord grew mightily and prevailed.

I love Jesus dearly and will serve Him for the rest of my days.

Acts 20:24 NKJV But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.
