TRUST ISSUES

Image
If you're not God, my quintessential spiritual director, bae or my mini-circled confidants, then I have trust issues with you!
Scriptural Passage: {1 Peter 5:8} "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world."

Lately, I've watched drama unraveled sequentially till it attained its melting point. And surprisingly, these acts were put up by people whom I thought were dear to me. 
*Screaming no more! Never letting this sanguine heart of mine fail me. Never again!
It's not okay to be rewarded evil for the good deeds done. It;s not okay for a group of people to plot your downfall and pit your name for no just cause. It's not okay to be treated less than your worth. Most importantly, it's not okay to suffer for nothing especially when it is beneficial to those who don't d…

Naked and Bare...

Image
Don't be distracted by the tautological caption, but there comes a time in one's life where the individual undresses and just lay bare, with aim of offloading the luggage that comes with life's journey.

In the last three weeks, I've been somewhat depressed. Able to think straight? Mission impossible. I'm too selfless to a fault and it is the burden I bear. Being in the midst of negative people who never retire from false judgments keeps me on my feet. I'm careful not to give them the opportunity to penetrate and tamper with my peace. Come to think of it, I have an acute phobia for failure, especially the ones that come with heightened embarrassments. I pray the heavens hastily come to my rescue.

The pressure from meeting various deadlines, many commitments which I ought to get actively involved in and the overall responsibility accrued to being an adult is a torn in my flesh. I don't intend to bore you with no Mummy Tale. But up unto now, no one has been a…

Smile At Life, It Smiles Right Back At You

Image
There's this thing they say about life. Smile at it, it smiles right back at you in return. Sometimes, life may not smile after you've flashed the first, second or numerous smiles at. Smile unrelentingly until it gets tired of upsetting you. Because it will get tired eventually.

All my life (up until now), I lived in different levels of expectations. There were times I anticipated the perfect prince charming to make my fairy tale dreams come alive, other times, I anticipated an upsurge in my career aspiration.
Were my expectations met? Yes... Nearest to yes, I think. Maybe because it took a longer time to attain unlike I imagined. Later in life, I discovered the secret: Smile at life.

Anchor Scripture: {Jeremiah 29:11}
"I have plans to take care of yourself and give you a future that you planned for

Well, It takes a renewed mind to smile at life and through life's.

The moment I began to smile at life consistently amidst its pains and gains, tasteful and distasteful e…

LAZINESS

Image
The human body is wired to be in a neutral state. Neutral means a relaxed state. The human body craves comfort, skin pampering and the good things of life.

Some of the recent people in my life think i'm a workaholic, if only they knew the "unrenewed'' Ella. lol. I'm a typical sanguine. My walk with the Holy Spirit made me overcome most of the weaknesses of a sanguine.

Oh well, I have my lazy days! Each time i'm in my lazy day feeling, Proverbs 6:4-11 pops up in my head and torments the hell out of me.

Anchor Scripture: {Proverbs 6:6-11}
"Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, which, having no captain, overseer or ruler, provides her supplies in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest.  How long will you slumber you sluggard? A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of hands to sleep -  So shall your poverty come to you like a prowler, and your need like an armed man.''
Imbibing self discipline to overcome la…

It Will Come To You

Image
You may have to rigorously go after it at the inception, but a time will come when everything you've ever desired will find its way to your bosom and there won't be room enough to contain it.

Anchor Scripture: {Proverbs 16:3}
"Commit your works to the Lord and He'll establish your thoughts.''

The start-up is usually the toughest because of the foundational work involved. A lot of plotting/planning, sleepless nights, hard work, innovative and strategic ideas will be committed. This phase will be sustained by the fruit of the Holy Spirit, not its gifts. The fruit of the Holy Spirit includes: love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.(Galatians 5:22-23a) The gifts of the Holy Spirit can be found in 1 Corinthians 12:8-10.

The law of attraction is the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on. It is the universal law that guides every human being who subscribes to the act of focusing. Aim at th…

IGNORE

Image
To ignore means to overlook, and it is not synonymous with ignorance.

Anchor Scripture: {Proverbs 27:12}
"The prudent see danger and hide, but the naive keeps going and pay the penalty.''

Ignoring isn't a sign of weakness, rather, a manifestation of strength acquired through intense discipline.

On the 2nd of October 2017 after a getaway dinner with my fiance (we were celebrating our anniversary), robbers tried to attack us but God redirected the operation of my fiance and gave me a strategy to wrestle with one of the robbers. *Email me to get the full gist.

As I tried to relax my nerve and thank God for a successfully face-off, I noticed my fiance slowing down the car with the intention of alighting from the vehicle to confront one of the robbers who tried getting physical with me. Yes he tried to that! Shaking My Head!
At first, I thought to myself that he was joking. Soon realizing that he meant business, I lunged out yelling, "Get us out of here! Get us out o…

SHUT UP!

Image
From my finding, the new bred generation prefer sycophants that'll white-wash and give them high definition fictional ''amebo''. Apparently, it is tantamount to their survival, thus giving them an imaginary sense of belonging status.
Sincerity and genuinity  has been confused for "eye service'' or ''holier art thou'' attitude.

Well, half truth is no truth.

These days, i'm afraid to tell the entire truth because "badbelles'' are in the habit of quoting portions from my statement. They never do it in entirety. Lately, the voice in my head that yells "SHUT UP!" each time i'm about to open up is on cloud nine. I'm so glad there is a voice.

Anchor Scripture: {Proverbs 17:28} ''Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if the hold their tongue.''
I used to be a talkative in the past (only with my supposed friends) and it still put me in trouble. Now that i'm a lady,…
