TILL I ALIGN – ORDER

I didn’t think I’d be back here this soon —  considering the fact that I wanted to continue hiding my posts under my pillow — well let’s do this. This — blogging, writing… is personal. It puts me out there as an open book (Which I don’t enjoy, still trying to get used to), then the aspect where what I write are direct messages to myself, but also allows me to have a voice in different spaces and I love that — a lot.

I was doing a flashback a couple of months ago, on quite a number of events, especially the ones I talked myself into believing I would never overcome. I was wondering and asking why they happened? Guess what the Holy Spirit did — He whispered “For Order“. Why did Jesus come as the bleeding Lamb even though He had the power to come as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah? The Lamb redeems (He had to follow an order for our redemption) 

Whiles reading, I recently came across an article online about how the designs we see architects put up go through series of strategies and a planning phase of alignment which is one of the most important phase of their designs. This alignment process is what determines how that house or design is going to look, if the pillars of a building aren’t aligned then it will only be a matter of time before the building collapses. How would you feel living in a crooked house? I don’t know about you but personally I wouldn’t invite any friend to that house. 

Usually we have this long list coming to ask God for A-Z simply because the Bible says “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you(Matthew 7:7) yet there’s no order and probably behind closed doors there are still things you are struggling with. He is the only gap filler, I don’t know what challenges you may be facing currently (look God cares about all the wounds and scars you are hiding) tell Him about the wounds. Trust me everything you are experiencing now is for order — He is a God of order, look at the creation story for instance. God is bringing you to a place of alignment. Mind you the same bible says “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33). So keep seeking even when it hurts, even when you don’t understand, keep pressing on and asking God to align you because once He aligns you every other thing will fall into place.

Truth is, this is the best prayer any Christian can be praying. I don’t see what else we can be praying for as Christians. If our lives are not in alignment with His will. Jeremiah 29:11 says For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” Tell yourself the truth, I am telling myself the truth that if God should come today I am not aligned, I am still figuring out this walk of faith. I need God to align me. Be encouraged knowing that The steps of a good (righteous) man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.” (Psalm 37 : 23) He is ordering your steps to a perfect end.

For as long as the Holy Spirit is inside of you and brooding — There will be light

Prayer
Precious Holy Spirit, thank you for being so merciful to me. I am in need of you, I realize my life is not in order, please keep brooding inside of me till there’s light. I admit that I am confused about a lot of things. I may not understand everything going on in my life right now but I believe you will perfect all that concerns me. I humbly ask that you keep arranging every phase of my life, Invade my heart till I align with your will and purpose for my life in Jesus Name I pray. Amen.

Stay Blessed!

HE FOUND ME WORTHY!

Lol Finally I get the courage to put my thoughts into words and share them on this platform, considering the years the idea to blog has been sitting idly in my mind like a book on a dusty shelf. The amusing part  is that the idea was t blog about fashion because I believed I had a style. Lol. There were times I created the blog and totally forgot the password, I created an account on Instagram (@fashionroom7) eager to share what I thought was appropriate to wear and whenever I chanced upon a fashion blog, I’ll go like “Oh yeah I want my blog to be like this and that”. However, recent happenings made me rethink and during one of my usual sleepless nights the idea came to me again but this time blog about JESUS “TO SPEAK OF HE WHO FOUND ME WORTHY” I discarded it but it kept coming back to mind. I thought it through on my way to work and while at work because I didn’t think of myself as someone who could do it.I got back home the same day and my first words to my cousin was “I am going to blog about JESUS”. I came across a quote by A.W. TOZER  that reads “What comes to mind when we think about God is the most Important thing about Us” and this scripture does exactly that for me when I think of God.

1 Oh give thanks to the LORD, call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples. 2 Sing to Him, sing praises to Him; Speak of all His wonders. 3 Glory in His holy name; Let the heart of those who seek the LORD be glad…(Psalm 105:1-3)

I am nowhere close to a perfect Christian but the recurring challenging situations I find myself in for the past 2 years made me realize He loved me too much to leave me where I was. This confirmed one thing…

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.(Jeremiah 29:11) 

It is quite interesting the number of times this scripture has been used in church without me realizing its depth till now. This is just to say whatever it is you’re dealing with, it is not to cause you harm or evil but rather to bring you to an expected end. I am very excited and looking forward to sharing with you about JESUS and it is my humble and earnest prayer that whoever comes across this blog will decide to make a conscious effort to have a personal relationship with Jesus and know more about His wonderful works.

God bless You!
