You don’t know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice - Bob Marley

This week’s inspiration comes from a story I read in one of my daily devotionals…in the story a little girl tells her father she thinks she will never be strong enough for Jesus, her father assured her when the time comes, God will provide her with sufficient strength. Sure enough when she grew up she mustered the strength to help Jews escape Nazis during the Second World war…

strength to overcome

 

 

God's strength

 

I hope these words encourage you today, remember, you have a mighty God who loves you dearly…he will surely provide you with the strength you need to overcome whatever giants you face in life,

2 Corinthians 12:9 (ESV)

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Philippians 2:13 (AMP)

13 For it is [not your strength, but it is] God who is effectively at work in you, both to will and to work [that is, strengthening, energizing, and creating in you the longing and the ability to fulfill your purpose] for His good pleasure.

Love Always,

You can’t Pray For Something and Act less…

you cannot pray for something and act less quote tad r callister

 

Hi luvs,

Happy Sunday,

Can you believe that the holidays are officially over and it’s almost time to get back to business as usual? I’m sure most of you have quite a number of goals you want to achieve this year, whatever our goals are, we all want to be the best version of ourselves and have a better year, in all aspects of our lives.

In the past few days, I’ve seen a lot of many inspirational and encouraging quotes on social media motivating us all to start the year right. But this one in particular stood out to me the most.

“You cannot pray for an A on a test and study for a B. You cannot pray for a celestial marriage and live a telestial life. You cannot pray for something and act less.”

— Tad R. Callister

In today’s world of social media where we’re constantly bombarded by the lives of others. This makes it so easy for us to feel like complete failures and that our lives are not as great as compared to those of others. We do this without seeing the full picture/ without knowing the whole story/ without knowing their struggles or path. We make assumptions on another person’s snapshot. Everyone has a story but we forget this and at times we may fall into the trap of feeling that we’re entitled to a certain lifestyle.

But if we really think about it, do we actually deserve what we want? are we honestly putting in the time, effort and work required into achieving our goals? I know we all live in a very busy and distracting world where time is a luxury. Amongst all the distractions, I just thought that this is a great reminder, that our goals, hopes, dreams and prayers have to be aligned with our actions and our intentions. As you get back to your routine this year, I hope that this is something that will inspire you as much as it inspired me.

Goodluck & have a great and productive week ahead!

Thanx so much for stopping by ♥,

Have a great weekend,

Much Love & Stay Blessed,

Dee

“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others”

-Nelson Mandela

There is nothing I can say to describe how much this one man meant to South Africa, Africa, POC’s or the WORLD. His life spoke for itself. All I can say is Rest Well Madiba, you lived your purpose and have left a mark. Your memory will live eternally.

In Between Goals…

 

life has to be lived and enjoyed

Hi luvs,

I said I’ll be back tomorrow, so here I am :) back earlier than promised. I’ll be travelling again next week tomorrow Monday and will probably be gone for a month this time. In the mean time I won’t be able to do my regular posts therefore things will be a bit random over here. (Most of these posts are pre-scheduled *wink)

When I do get situated I’ll be instagramming (Is that even a word?). If you’re curious as to where I’m heading follow me on instagram @msdeekay2012 …otherwise I will try to do insta-recaps here on the blog at least once a week to keep you guys up to speed on my whereabouts.

Even though this trip was very random and came up really unexpectedly…life happens and when it does live it to the fullest and enjoy every moment. Have a great weekend and a productive week ahead.

‘Till then,

Thanx so much for stopping by ♥,

Much Love & Stay Blessed,

Dee
