“Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase” - Martin Luther King, Jnr
When i first started @christculturedwoman and blogging i had so many doubts with questions like can i do this? I also had a lot of inward conflicts. It takes a lot of courage and trust to give God a blind faith - not knowing his entire plan but still walking in His Will. ——-
Trusting and believing in God in the dark is the one hardest thing to do - He hardly reveals His entire plan to you. But irrespective of how hard it was i still took the first and i have been taking little steps ever since. I may not know where i am headed or the bigger picture, but knowing God is enough - Knowing Him means i will definitely get to my expected.
Don’t let doubts and fear cripple you, take the first step - if you have to see the whole staircase before you take the first step then maybe you really do not have faith in God. (“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.” Hebrews 11:1-2 NIV). ———
Sometimes the best thing to do is not to worry, obsess and doubt. Have Faith that God will see you through and bring you to an expected end. #faithblogger
One word - LOVE!! #shoelovers #heelsaddict #trendykiddies
Everything flows beautifully when you get to know your inner-self.
The past few months have been slightly emotional for me, sometimes i’m up and other times i am down. But then again that sums up Life - it is made up of highs and lows. However, one thing i strive for as a Christian Woman is, never to allow my emotions to determine my faith and relationship with God.
Because truth be told it is easy to be at the mercy of one’s emotions and to be crippled inside. But choosing faith stops me from being a slave to my emotions. Emotions are hardly stable therefore allowing them to dictate my faith affects the stability of my relationship with God.
I go to His presence no matter how i feel because His presence brings truth when i can’t find it, it brings healing when i need it, it comforts and it makes me whole. I know he wants all of me and desires to know everything about me, So i do not run from him when i’m down; i run to Him for his presence to permeate my entire being. I am not ashamed to admit when i am down, it is not a sign of weakness rather an opportunity for God to enlighten what is dark and to strengthen what is weak in me.
I am human, it is ok to melt down but i choose to unpack in the presence of God rather than away from His presence.My goal is for my emotions to bow before the presence of God.
Is it hard to do? Heck Yes!! But i know that no matter what how i’m feeling, God wants me and His presence reassures me day by day. #faithblogger #christianwoman at Virginia Woodbridge
It was an honor to witness the love that is evident between my girl @cupcakesdotty and her hubby this past weekend. Marriage is a gift from God. #mygirlgothitched #edanddotty18 #blacklove

I do not desire to gain the world and lose my soul. The life i live is tied to God’s will where His Grace will always be sufficient for me. #presentoverperfect #christiangirl #christianblog

Find that place of stillness where you can sit with your own thoughts. In that place, you come to an understanding and discover things that are rare in movement and shifting. •
Personally i call that place my whispering spot - it is more of a mental place rather than a physical place, void of opinions and distractions. at Heritage Hunt Golf and Country Club
You do not have to “make it big” to make an impact. Each day, you have the opportunity to make a profound lasting impact with your actions and your words.

As a teenager and a young adult anytime i wanted to do something against my mum’s rules and regulations, she would say “Not under my roof” - and how that used to upset me, like why can’t i just break rules in peace? Lol. But with most parents there is nothing like breaking rules in peace. I was always looking forward to the day i will leave home especially when i had to follow my parents rules and regulations. And my mum would always say when you grow up someday you will understand.
Then i grew up, the Lord blessed me with a home and i think i now understand what my mum meant. The Home i grew up in was not built in a day - It took some sacrifices, patience and whatever was necessary.
I now realize that one of the greatest work i will ever have to do is within the walls of my home which is why i ensure that it revolves round Jesus. My strength and wisdom have limits but God has no limits. A home that is an earthly reflection of God’s love is my ultimate goal.

The details are not the details, they make the design - Charles Eames.
Every tiny detail about you is a part of what makes you unique. God is intentional about everything concerning you, never forget that.
“In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will,”
Ephesians 1:11 NIV
This was my reaction when something was not going as planned the morning of my wedding day. Wedding planning is legit one of the most stressful things i’ve had to do. But i look back and enjoy all the moments. My reaction in this shot was simply - i do not know what to do!
Now, this is the same reaction i have in my current season!!! Everything seems to be up in the air with all my plans falling apart before they are even activated. Ya’ll when i tell you the struggle is real😂
Even though i have trust in God, i also have human moments when i’m like where do i go from here, i give up!! We all have those seasons and i know that i am in a dry/silent season. But i also know never to put God in a box even when i can’t figure things out. Because even if he doesn’t show up on my time, He will definitely show up on His time.
Waiting is one of the hardest part of faith walk but how you wait is very essential to faith. I live in expectancy because i know that it is just a matter of time when God will pour out His rain. He has made a way in a past and that is my point of reference, knowing that He is not done with me.
To anyone feeling like they’ve reached a dead end, Know that God is not done with you. A dry/silent season is not a life sentence; it is only a season and we know that seasons pass. Believe it or not, where God wants you is where you are at right now. If God puts you on Wait; worship while you wait, praise while you wait and most importantly study His word while you wait so that you are not convinced into making moves that are self-seeking.

“Go placidly amid the haste” is one of my fav lines of the desiderata because it reminds me to do life at my own pace guided by God’s purpose for my life.
Comparing your progress to others is an injustice to self. And it also robs you of the the opportunity to be present in your process.

““You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
Matthew 5:14-16 NIV #wordup at Gainesville, Virginia
You simply have to put one foot in front of the other and keep going. Put blinders on and plow right ahead - George Lucas
Three days ago i read a very insightful post about purpose by @everythingnaart. The part that got me and keeps coming back to me was the question “who are you to talking to”? I have been reflecting on this question ever since i read the post (that was some deep stuff)
I believe that we should ask ourselves questions like this on a regular basis because sometimes we get caught up in society’s misconceptions and ideals about “what works” causing us to loose our focus.
Personally, there are days that i am so unmotivated and feel stuck in one place. The journey to purpose is not an easy one, Some days are smooth and you feel good doing what you do and being present in the process. But other days i just feel like what is the point of all this? Is giving every bit of myself to my purpose worth it? I am simply unmotivated on days like that.
On days that i am unmotivated my answer to the question posed by @everythingnaart is what pushes me.
So WHO AM I TALKING TO? I am talking to the woman;
1. who believes and knows that she is more than the world tells her she is
2. who does not conform to the standards of the world and is ready to protect her godly standards, principles and values.
3. To the woman who refuses to be defined by her circumstances and her past
4. I am speaking to the woman who has a thirst that no human but God can satisfy
5. To every woman who is and wants to be drawn to God,
6. To the woman who desires to evolve with Jesus at the center. ————————————————
The woman i am talking to is one of the reasons i avail myself to God, she keeps me going on days when i want to give up. I understand that my purpose is not everyone, those who connect with me are those who connect with a piece of my purpose and calling.
Knowing who i am talking to and who i am called to talk to keeps me focused. So today i challenge you like i was challenged by @everythingnaart to ask yourself “what is my purpose” and “who am i talking to”. It will amaze you how far you can go when you know your purpose.
