Flourishing 

Flourishing 

First Post of The Year! Wow.

Happy New Year People! I’m sure the Year has been awesome for you so far.

At the Global New Years Service with Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, Pastor announced that 2017 was the Year of Flourishing✨👑.

He also mentioned that this year is split in three parts:
– Luxuriant Growth 🌴

– Significant Attainment ✅

– Persistent Productivity 💫

– FLOURISH 

You know, I looked up the word flourishing – nothing fancy, just typed it into google and these are a few of the definitions I got: 


This means that this year is going to be full of fast and successful growth. It means everything we do, everything we touch has to turn out well and will do so with immense speed, while keeping the upmost quality of production (including self-growth).

The first definition mentions that this growth is “especially as the result of a particularly congenial environment”. A synonym for congenial is “suitable”. 

So, in order for this healthy development, the correct environment is needed and what better suitable environment for Flourishing than in the Word of God?

One of the things I’ve learnt over the years is to not leave God out of your plans because when He is involved, success is 100% guaranteed. 

“The righteous will flourish like the palm tree [long-lived, upright and useful]; They will grow like a cedar in Lebanon [majestic and stable].” – Psalm 92:15 


– LUXURIANT GROWTH


Luxuriant relates to richness, abundance and thriving. This year, just like the palm tree, whatever the weather, time or place, know that you can and will thrive because the power to do so is within you and God has ordained it to be so. 

We should hold on to His word to allow healthy growth in every aspect of our lives (spiritually, mentally, financially, in love) and let go of things that could stunt growth.

“Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing.” – Psalm 92:13-14


– SIGNIFICANT ATTAINMENT


All those goals and plans and ideas we had for 2016 that for some reason or the other didn’t develop fully? Well that’s about to change. 

This year, be determined to let nothing stop you for attaining your goals, distractions and negativity may come for any or all directions but remember who you are and stay focused on the goal.

Just like the palm tree, that reaches its high point no matter the circumstance, we too can achieve news breaking, world shaking attainments. Believe in yourself and the one who made you and nothing can stop you.

“May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.” – Psalm 20:4


– PERSISTENT PRODUCTIVITY 


This year of flourishing God has ordained for us to be able to produce high-yielding results constantly. Remember that nothing matters that is against God’s Word that can affect your productivity.

Speak in tongues and spend time meditating on God’s Word to improve yourself and your ability to produce persistently successful and desired results.

“But they delight in doing everything God wants them to, and day and night are always meditating on his laws and thinking about ways to follow him more closely. They are like trees along a riverbank bearing luscious fruit each season without fail. Their leaves shall never wither, and all they do shall prosper.” – Psalm 1:2-3.

This year we are continuing the spreading, adding significant attainment and persistent productivity to our development, knowing that we are and everything that we do is useful. We’re spreading and doing it in style.

We shine✨ & We Win👑 
🌴Always 🌴

Keep Shining & Winning!✨👑

And So This Is Christmas

And So This Is Christmas


Every year we get asked “So, what does Christmas mean to you?” And we usually list things such as ‘helping, love, family, joy’ & last but not least ‘Happy Birthday Jesus’. But I recently rewatched one of a Pastors, My Pastors (Rev. Chris Oyakhilome) Christmas messages and he put it in the most simplest, truthful and fun way using an Acrostic format. 

See below please. 😀💃🏾

All these wonderful things for one day!🎉😭

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” – Isaiah 9:6 

Christmas all began because God loved us so much and He wants us to spread, share and show that love to everyone. Jesus came to give us life, that God-Kind of life, full of love and success and lacking in nothing! 

God is a Father, Our Father and all He wants us for us to be Happy and Love Him and Others like He loves us & He sent Jesus to help us to do this. No Father wants their child to Suffer! And Jesus being born and alive in us today is God’s way of making sure that never happens💪🏾. 

So, this is just a short post to say Merry Christmas, don’t forget that CHRIST is the reason for the season and I hope you had a wonderful or are having a wonderful time with the three F’s:

Family, Friends & Food!🎄🎁🎉😅

And I pray that your day is filled with laughter & Joy 😄✨

Remember to always show love ❤️, help others👫 & Share the Gospel – the Good News with someone today🙌🏾!

Keep Shining & Winning!✨👑

A Sailor Went To Sea

A Sailor Went To Sea

            

A lot of times for us young people, when people ask us what we want to do with our lives it’s like “here we go again 🙄” And yes I agree, it can be annoying to be asked that all of your youthful life BUT really though, what are we doing? 

You can be anything and everything you want to be. You may not know it straight away but that is what prayer and The Holy Spirit is there for, to guide us on our right path to success and a victorious life. 

The Holy Spirit will help guide you to make the right choices. He lives inside of us and is ready to help us fulfil God’s best plan for our lives. 


Without guidance from God, law and order disappear, but God blesses everyone who obeys his Law. – Proverbs 29:18

You don’t have to feel lost or confused or as if you don’t know who you are or what to do or like there is not order to your life. 

The best thing to do is allow Him to lead and direct us and that way, we are sure we cannot fail in whatever it is we do.     


Your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left. – Isaiah 30:21 

We shouldn’t rely on just ourselves and our own knowledge of life and situations, but on God. He is the one who gives our lives a meaning and we should trust in Him to make our lives beautiful successes through listening, acting and confessing His word and following His plan. 


Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart. And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. – Proverbs 3:5 

As a child of God, we come from a line of winners, champions, the victors. We have been graced with the awesomeness of God🤔. To put it short – we’re pretty special👀😎 #Justsaying😄

So, never let anyone tell you that can’t do anything or be anything and don’t let anything stop you, including yourself. Dive deeper into what’s in store for you, think about and speak into your future. 

Don’t let only what you can see from your boat be all that there is. There’s always more under the surface …

Keep Shining & Winning!✨👑

Don’t Rain on My Parade

Don’t Rain on My Parade


Have you ever found someone – maybe even close to you – say or ask you these things:

“Yeah, I mean it sounds great, but are you sure you can do this?”

“That’s a nice idea, but maybe you should try something else.”

“I don’t think that’s really for you to be honest.”

“Do you really think that will work? I’m just looking out for you, why won’t you listen to me?”

***

🤔 Uh, hello?? I’m not listening to you because you’re trying to rain on my parade.🌧☔️

Don’t let other people dictate what is and isn’t best for you. (Especially when you know it’s God’s plan for you). That’s the Holy Spirit’s job and I’m quite sure (100% sure actually😅) that He isn’t out of business.

Of course, you can ask for their opinion or even advice, because that person may have a good idea or input towards that thing you want to do. But once you hear the negativity coming out of their mouth you just know that you don’t have to listen to that. Just tell them “Hey, thanks but no thanks.”👍

I know that I can do anything I set my mind to because God’s ability is at work in me.

If it’s not helpful or aligning with what God’s Word 📖 has said about you and the things concerning you then you don’t need that kind of information/advice/input.

Let’s see what the Bible says actually…

“Commit your works to the Lord [submit and trust them to Him], And your plans will succeed [if you respond to His will and guidance].” – Proverbs 16:3

So, as you can see, as long as you trust God, put your faith in Him and come to him with your hearts desires, ‘your plans will succeed’. It doesn’t matter what anyone else has to say about the situation as God’s word is your ultimate guide and counsel.

“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” – Psalm 119:105

Also, remember not to rain on anyone else’s parade🌞, there’s enough success to go around. This is the year of spreading so let us help each other when we can to spread like never before. You are blessed to be a blessing.

Go beyond the limits and start a total take over☄🌎. Everything belongs to you. God told Abraham that he would make him and his seed great. [Genesis 12:1-3] And WE are the seed of Abraham. When accept Jesus Christ as the Lord of your life, all that God promised Abraham, He promised you too as Abraham’s seed.

 “And if you belong to Christ [if you are in Him], then you are Abraham’s descendants, and [spiritual] heirs according to [God’s] promise.” – Galatians 3:29

Whether you want to be a doctor or you’re an aspiring artist/musician. Whether blogging is your passion or fashion is where it’s at. Maybe law is your thing or teaching. You might even have an idea that’s totally brand new (even better!) Whatever it is you want to do, or have started doing – be the best, because you ARE the best.

Start working towards your goals in life with the Holy Spirit as your guide and tell the haters to either change their attitude and join you or step aside!

I know that there’s no room for negativity in my life.✌️

You know, sometimes people may really believe they are looking out for you. Just tell them not to worry. We already have someone looking out for us and He’s already told us what we’re capable of. 😏

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” – Philippians 4:13 


So,

Keep Shining & Winning!✨👑
