I just want to say a big thank you for the love on my last post.I really appreciate everyone that went out of their way to drop a word of encouragement.
My Princess and I are doing very well and even though we miss Daddy so much…..God has being our source of strength.
It’s been an overwhelming journey but somehow I am still standing.People keep telling me I am strong and they keep commenting on how I have it all together.Only God sees the internal hurts,fears and pain.
From my last Post I talked about how it was hard for me to study my Bible or even pray.I really wanted to but I just could not I guess because the grief was so overwhelming.I have never been one to struggle with bible study in fact if there is something I struggle with on this Christian journey, it’s prayer.
However,this season it’s been difficult for me to study my bible.Talking to God became my go to tool.Prayer became easier for me as I just found my self pouring my heart to him.As I poured out my heart to God in the place of prayer he will always bring to my remembrance scriptures that I have stored up in my spirit and they are always therapeutic.So even though it’s been so hard for me to study there is a constant bubbling of scripture in my spirit that arises each time I have a need for it.
I never knew I will be faced with this kind challenge, all I wanted was a closer relationship with God hence Dilligent Bible study and it has helped me tremendously.
This scripture readily comes to mind;
“If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.”
Proverbs 24:10 KJV
This is my day of adversity and even though I can’t claim to have been strong all through I can confidently say that I have won most of the battles.
The Devil has thrown his best punch but I am still standing because the word of God has being my source of strength.
Even though the basics of bible study and prayer altar is no more popular in modern day Christianity it is essential for a sound Christian walk.As simple as it might look and sound it is actually true.
Keep studying and talking to your father,you never might be able to tell when you will need it.Remember it is not the Bible Under your pillow that will help you but rather it is the word stored in your heart.
Ps:It’s my birthday today kindly say a word of prayer for me.Thank you.

Having a time to meet with God is really important.It puts structure to your daily walk with him and it makes you consistent.If you want to do it randomly, then you have to be a super Disciplined person and that itself is not an easy feat.
Also, (and this is probably one of the latest birthday wishes on earth) happy birthday mama. You are beautiful, you are strong, you are all-round amazing.
I pray that you experience the grace of Jesus, the love of God and fellowship with the Holy Spirit like never before in this new year. Kings come to your light and gentiles to the brightness of your rising. I love you 💖💖
Thank you for this post.
I have a question: does having a particular time matter? Is it important? Does it make any kind of difference? I know that what matters more is daily reading and praying. But do you think setting a particular time makes any difference?
Thank you so much everyone.There is no VOS without you.
Thank you for the birthday wishes
