Girl, where is your focus?

Girl, where is your focus?

We live in a generation that struggles to focus. Don’t believe me? Look around you. There’s distraction everywhere. Ask someone to give you their undivided attention for 5 minutes, and you’ll see how in a minute, their mind starts wandering; in 2 minutes, their phone starts ringing, and before you know it, you’ve already lost their attention.

But little do we realise that our lack of focus is costing us.

Still don’t believe me? Then, you need to hear this


Recently, I was waiting for a train to head to work. As there was still a few minutes for the train to arrive, I decided just to check my phone. I kid you not! The train came and passed by, and I did not even realise it. It was only when I lifted my eyes off the phone to see the indicator that I realised that I had missed the train and would have to wait for half an hour for the next train. Hoping to still make it to work on time, I headed to the next station to catch another train. But guess what? I waited and waited, only to find out that every other train was delayed that day. So, I had to turn back and return home as there was no way I could make it to work.

While I was walking back home, extremely disappointed at my foolishness, the Holy Spirit whispered to me gently, saying, “You know, this Christian life is about continual and constant focus. And you can’t afford to be distracted even for a second.”

I realised how costly entertaining just a minute of distraction can be.

This is what I learnt through this experience-

Loss of focus = loss of time

Just a minute of distraction caused me to lose 1 hour of my time. I lost 1 hour of energy. 1 hour of effort. 1 hour of purpose. Not to mention the condemnation I had to fight while heading back home.

Now think, the enemy can plant one distraction, and if you and I take that bait, it could cause us to lose years. It can keep us going around the same mountain. It can cause us to miss the train God has for us.

Loss of focus = loss of opportunity

There is an opportune time for everything. And there is a grace for everything. And it is important that we steward that grace; otherwise, we end up wasting it.

The Bible says in Luke 9:51, “Now it came to pass, when the time had come for Him to be received up, that He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem,”

You see, even Jesus moved when the time had come, i.e., at the opportune time. And Jesus set His face on the journey He was called for. So much so that later on, when the Samaritans didn’t welcome Him, it didn’t even bother Jesus. He was able to blur out the noise and continue walking. (Luke 9:53)

Again, have you heard of the woman with the issue of blood? Oh, she was a woman of focus!

How is that?

She knew the goal, and she knew what was at stake. Even in a crowd that was pressing against Jesus, she was able to blur the multitude, blur the noise, blur the commotion, and trace a path through it all to reach the hem of Jesus’ garment. Imagine if she was distracted even for a second; imagine if she met someone on the way and decided to engage in a conversation. She would’ve lost her breakthrough. But no! She was focused. And how was that possible? She kept reminding herself of the goal. (Mark 5:28)

We’re on a journey!

Hey, daughter of God, you and I are called on a journey. Today, let this post remind us that we can’t afford to lose the constant touch of the Holy Spirit, even for a second. And we definitely can’t afford to entertain distractions or live a compromised life saying, “oh, it’s just one movie”, or “it’s just one message”, or “it’s just one call, let me try it, and I’ll be right back on the Christian train seeking God.”

It doesn’t work like that.

David, whose one desire was to behold the beauty of the Lord (Psalm 27:4), when he decided to entertain a distraction and shifted his focus to behold the beauty of a woman (2 Samuel 11:2), ended up displeasing God, killing a man and bringing adversity on his whole household.

So wise daughters, let’s realign our focus today.

Let’s not miss the train God has for us. Let our focus be on the word. Let our gaze be on Jesus. And let us blur out the distractions planted by the enemy to steal our time. And let us set our face on the journey, continually reminding ourselves what we are here for and what is at stake.

Movie recommendation: I Can Only Imagine

Movie recommendation: I Can Only Imagine

Love movies? Well, we love movies too. However, not all movies are really good for you because your eyes and ears are the doors to your life. What you see and hear is what you become into.

So, from time to time we will suggest a movie that you could watch! We will share the trailers and the links maybe if the movie is available.

For this month the movie I can recommend for you to watch is “ I Can Only Imagine”.


Psst! Spoilers ahead!

It’s a true story of a boy who had a bad father and has gone through abuse and witnessed his mom going through it too. His mom left him and he had not known love nor does he know how to love but he goes on to follow his dreams. But when life gets tough that’s when the enemy replays his past and the words that were spoken over his life come alive. Would he be able to ever forgive his father? Or can God change lives? Can dreams come true? Does God care for the abused? Can God lift the lowly?

Here’s a true story you cannot miss because this is what happens at home. With words spoken by people, our lives have become limited. And with the abuse, we must have gone through God gives us the grace to forgive because He has forgiven us. Watch this movie and let us know your views.

A messed up pencil box and a powerful reminder!

A messed up pencil box and a powerful reminder!

Recently we gifted our five year old a new pencil box. My husband knew my son’s exact choice so he searched hard till he found one – A car shaped, double decker, shiny metal box with his favorite colors.

My son was so happy to receive this surprise gift and show it off to his school friends. He wanted to even sleep with it, he thanked us and was so overjoyed with the gesture.


When the secret was let out

Following week while me and my son were enjoying our evening play time, my mother-in-law came to the room and said she had a complaint about him. The moment my son heard her, the joy on his face was now replaced with fear.

My little boy got to the point of tears, jumped off his chair and started to close my ears and eyes pleading with me to not listen to her.

The moment I saw what had happened to him, I held him close, looked in those teary eyes and reassured him of my love, no matter what he had done.

Finally he gathered courage and told me in an attempt to decorate his new pencil box he colored it and spoiled it. He then tried to rectify his mistake by washing and scrubbing it, but all in vain. When he realized he had messed it, he was very scared. My mother-in-law threatened him if he didn’t listen to her, she would let out the secret which would make me very mad at him. And in fear, he hid the pencil box.

My son was weeping as he asked for forgiveness from me and I in turn hugged him and assured him that I am not upset at all, and all he had to do was to come to mummy just as he is, instead of hiding what had happened.

I then showed him a magic potion I had (nail paint remover) that could remove all stains, and as I wiped the pencil box, it became just as new!

Run to Jesus

My son was so happy, he ran out of the room with the box in his hand as a trophy, showing it off to his grandmother. The same box that had been the reason for him to be condemned was now a reason to celebrate.. Oh he was free, he was dancing to glory, teasing his grandma and enjoying the astonished look on her face!

As I watched my son dancing and rejoicing, I was reminded that this was exactly what God did for you and me. He washed us by His blood. The sin stains were so dark that no blood of bulls and rams could wash us clean. But what we couldn’t accomplish Jesus did it for us, by washing us with His precious blood (Romans 3:25).

Dear sister, as you read this, no matter how badly you feel you have fallen, run into the father’s arms. When you and I fail or fall in the trap of sin, the accuser is watching and condemning us, convincing us to his filthy lies – lies that I would never be accepted, I have lost my sonship, I would not receive any more blessings, God doesn’t love me and is upset with me etc. Don’t allow fear to paralyse you, instead run to His Word. Because every time I run to His Word (Him), His blood washes me clean, whiter than snow leaving no traces of sin or condemnation.

Thank you Jesus!

Hate Waiting? Here’s What You Need To Know…

Hate Waiting? Here’s What You Need To Know…

How has your 2022 been? What are you looking forward to in the new year 2023?

Every year there were some declarations I had made and would trust God to make it happen that year. But every time I asked God for it to happen that year, I would hear God say “Prepare “. And I would respond “But Lord you said that last year too and last to last year also”. And for three years I waited and I had to prepare and I realized later why!

It’s because He is the God of Suddenly. When God blesses you and promotes you or gives you something, it will happen suddenly and you need that grace to keep that blessing otherwise you will ruin it yourself. He needs you to get the old you and your old experience out so you can embrace the new and learn what God has in store for you.


Wait and Prepare

The disciples had to wait 10 days to receive the strength and power of the Holy Spirit. Why did the Lord want them to pray and wait?!

David was a shepherd boy and with the sheep he had, God was preparing him to be a king to rule Israel.

Prophet Samuel served God in the temple, with what he heard and obeyed the priest, God was preparing Him to hear Him and obey God Himself and become one of the greatest prophets.

Waiting time can be exhausting until you realise that God is been preparing you for a launch.

God will prepare you with the Small You do

If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities (Luke 16:10)

Questions to ask yourself are in what areas I must be faithful so God can hold me accountable for more. In what areas I must work on, or teach myself so I can be prepared?

What are the weaknesses that I must overcome to be ready?

When The Promise Takes Time

Sometimes we think only if we are prepared and perfect then only God will do what He promised us. That is not true. Because God is a Good God and He sends rain to the evil and the good (Mat 5:45). The choice is either to be ready and prepared for it before or learn through hard knocks after the blessing has been given.

If the promise takes time remember even if you are not 100% ready or 100% perfect but God is faithful to do what He Promised. And guess what even though you weren’t ready for it and when your promise has taken place, He will teach you through the process only if you let Him. It may not be perfect and it may take time too but trust God to direct your ways.

Dear sister , no one likes to wait, but remember when God has opened the door no one can shut it. (Rev 3:7). Also, you are not alone in your preparation. The Bible says, “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6 (NIV)

My biggest lesson from 2022

My biggest lesson from 2022

Like most of you, every year I purchase a beautiful dairy and use the first page to set goals for myself. As I enter 2023, I like to go back to the 2022 dairy, spending time, reflecting on the previous year, and preparing my heart and mind for the next. As I contemplate, the most important lesson I learnt which I believe should be the foundation for our lives is: God wants us to not only survive, but thrive under him.

Those who trust in their riches will fall, but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf. (Proverbs 11:28)

So yes, celebrate Jesus… for you thrived in 2022

Lesson 2022

Here are a few lessons that built and strengthened me in 2022:

In the year 2022, I released God was focused on fixing my heart. I remember in the month of March, I started to see the enemies plan unfold in my life; but God had already given me a word in January to prepare me.“Guard your heart, be faithful Sheryl

I learnt to guard my heart by guarding my eyes, mouth and ears. Holy Spirit reminded me to be intentional of what I spoke, saw or heard. Here are 3 keys to guard your heart:

1) Guard your eyes:

Keep away from watching anything that will erupt an emotion that you are struggling with. I had watched myself and identified that romantic and thriller movies had the tendency to go deep in my heart and spring up emotions that I could not handle. Romantic movies would made me expect a similar married life like in the movies, and when that did not happen, I would get disappointed. And thriller movies would make me imagine unseen things in the dark… you know what I mean.

So I quickly cut off from them… If I felt like watching a movie I would watch good Biblical movies.

2) Guard your ears:

I have always been influenced with music, I believe many of us are because God has put worship and music in our hearts. So I made it a point to listen to uplifting worship music or listen to amazing Christian podcasts and books that are available for free.

3) Guard your mouth:

I learnt from my spiritual parents “If you have nothing good to say, don’t say anything”. I reminded my self often, I don’t have to share my opinion about everything and that I will only speak to uplift. My colleague recently introduced me to a GenZ lingo “FOMO” (fear of missing out); that is when the Holy Spirit spoke to me that ‘FOMO” is the biggest battle we all face.

Hey, it’s ok if you miss out on the joke or the latest topic in your office; but don’t miss out on the voice of God.

As I was intentional in guarding my heart, God was rewarding me with His presence by speaking to me through the Bible or a song and many times through the man and woman of God placed over me.Believe me, as the year has ended, I can look back and say, “I have been guarded from making many mistakes”. God has been my refuge and my I have been protected under is almighty wings.

He will never leave you nor forsake you

Girls, as a person I am very private, I don’t share anything about my personal life. However, today here I am peeling that layer of me to glorify the work of God in my life. When I would meet women that did not fall into relationships or habits in there teenage years, in my heart, I always blamed God for not protecting me from falling in wrong relationships or habits.

I would cry out to God so many times, “Why did you forsake me when I was in my teens, why did you never protect me”. I had to go through so many heart breaks and get over over so many addictions when I received Christ, my walk with Him was very different from the other Christian good girls in the church.

Truly truly , I tell you Our God never leaves us, I am a living proof. Even when I made the wrong choices He was with me. He watched over me and at the appointed time sent people in my life to reveal His never-ending love for me. Deuteronomy 31:8 T_he LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you._

Now by Guarding my heart, I continue to stay under the protection that God offers and not just survive but thrive daily.

Girls, so what was your biggest lesson from 2022?
