Do you ever wish that every moment of life was full of laughter and God-given adventures, that fills your soul with joy?
Often, life can seem boring and even mundane. I imagine that the first couple of days the army walked around the wall, was exciting and one big adventure!
But, by the third day, I would have been wondering, “What are we doing here? Nothing’s happening!”
This is where a lot of us are in our walk with God. We can feel like nothing is happening in life and that God has left us hanging!
But, just like Joshua, when we trust God in the mundane times, He is actually laying the foundations of our faith, in order to prepare us for the next step.
Trust Him – even when life isn’t exciting because God IS GOOD and He never ever forgets you.
If you are feeling disheartened, seek God’s peace during this time, because when we try to advance in life in our own strength, we can often miss what God is trying to show us.
Let Him make your path straight
Sin is a horrible truth that unfortunately sentences us to death.
But, Christ has the authority and power to help us break free of the things that we cannot control! Those things like the addictions that this world has to offer.
When I attempted to control my life, everything would go horribly wrong – simply because I couldn’t do anything, that didn’t lead me away from God.
So it came to much relief that when I let go of it all, God restored me.
Christ has the keys that would have ultimately seen me in hell. He conquered the grave and He alone holds the keys to hades and death.
Therefore, I place my faith in the one who gave it all.
I encourage anyone that is still struggling with “something,” – ask God to help you and then let go to see Him work in your life
“I am the living one. I died, but look—I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and the grave.” Revelation 1:18

Hi, my name is Rebecca 🙂
5 months ago, I left a job that I loved, to pursue what I felt God was leading me into.
Nowadays, you’ll find my head buried in the Bible 📖 and getting lost in God’s revelation and truths, to bring you daily encouragements! ❤️
The thing that I love most is that this is my office 😂 PJ’s are therefore a must!!
Although the only downside is when I forget my new “work attire” and head to the school, to pick-up my daughter 🤦🏼♀️
I was speaking to a Mentor a few days ago and we talked about how life can throw a curve ball.
God gives us His promises through the Bible but He will also speak to our individual purposes, in what He wants us to fulfil.
I will never forget when I realised my destiny had been set by God – His “A Plan” for my life. It was exciting and bigger than I could have imagined! Because from that day, it enabled me to make decisions (going forward) based on what I knew God wanted overall.
But, then, my hopes and dreams were halted when the curve ball did come, and I began to think:
The truth is, this life is not about us, and therefore, when I took a step back and began to think about it, was this new direction actually Plan B, or was it God’s Plan A all along?
It came down to – did I trust God to take me away from what I love doing, because this was actually written long ago? God’s plan far exceeds anything I could do myself – whether it was His A, B or C Plan!
God doesn’t promise world stardom but He does promise protection, love, and eternal blessings.
So that is what I am holding onto, as I step into the next chapter of God’s “A Plan” for my life.
Everything that He has foretold, will come to pass. I don’t need to understand – I just need to be obedient.
Listening to Hillsong this morning really cemented that for me:
I lay down my old flames
To carry Your new fire today
So make me Your vessel
Make me an offering
Make me whatever You want me to be
God, I came here with nothing
But all You have given me
Jesus, bring new wine out of me
“You keep every promise you’ve ever made to me! Since your love for me is constant and endless, I ask you, Lord, to finish every good thing that you’ve begun in me!” Psalms 138:8
What we say, probably affects more people than any other action we take.
So it’s not surprising, to find, that Proverbs gives us so many scriptures on our words, and how we should use them.
This is something that I desire – to have a controlled and caring tongue, instead of one that is careless and conniving.
I want to speak life into others by calling out the gold, that God has placed inside of them.
What about you?
How many of us have faced disappointment in our lifetime?
This year has seen many ups and downs for myself personally and we’re only half way through! Yet, when disappointment meets us head on, we have two choices…
We can either try and run away from the truth by covering up our true hearts desires.
Or, we can let God’s promises smash the disappointment in our lives.
If you don’t know me very well, then I love to be by the water, especially the Ocean.
The sound of the waves hitting an unexpected rock or shore, literally fills my heart with praise because it reminds me that every wave I see, is like a promise from God – they are never ending because His faithfulness never ceases.
So I choose to run to God in the times of disappointment. To let Him soothe my soul and bring calmness back to my life.
If you haven’t had the outcome you prayed or desired, stand firm in God’s word because His promises are Yes and Amen – it just might not be, for such a time as this.
“Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.” Hebrews 10:23
The emphasis within this scripture is simple, when we pray and ask what God wants for us, He will listen and give us an answer.
How do you pray?
The Bible tells us that God wants us to dream and ask God for our hearts desires, but it always has to align with God’s will for your life.
After all, He created us for a specific reason!
Have you dreamt with God?
Those are the times that will surpass anything you could have imagined, because when you are confident in your prayers and know without question what lies ahead, those are usually the dreams that God has given you
