Day 2580: God-Approved and Self-Approved

If you feel God-approved and if you are self-approved then you won’t feel the need to prove yourself to anyone  – that’s what I want the world to know.

 

It’s 8: 14  AM on day 2580 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray,  read Hosea 6: 6  and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet -raised $3 831 only $8 669 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot (thanks to everyone who has helped out so far) .

 

Recently I realized that if you feel God-approved and if you are self-approved then you won’t feel the need to prove yourself to anyone  (I used to feel the need to prove to people that I was so much more than they thought I was thankfully I don’t anymore because I feel like I’m God-approved and I know I’m self-approved).

Day 2572: God is conspiring for me to succeed

The thoughts we hold in our minds become our realities– that’s what I’ve realized.

 

It’s 9: 13  AM on day 2572 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Proverbs 12:25  and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – Yesterday  Alex Forshaw of My Autistic Dance donated $25 and Russell Williams donated $100 (thanks so much to them both ) which brings the total raised to $3 681 only $8 819 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot .

 

Recently I realized that the thoughts we hold in our minds become our realities so I started thinking God is conspiring for me to succeed instantly I felt happier and slowly things started turning in my favour it’s one of the most fantastic things I’ve ever experienced which is why I have decided to hold that thought in my mind forevermore.

Day 2542: God Backs Me and I Back Me

“She wants to make the impossible possible.” – my dad (referring to me in an interview)

 

 

It’s 12 : 32 PM on day 2542 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Job 38:4-7, have breakfast  and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet –Yesterday Pearl Shongwe donated $50  (thanks so much  Pearl  your support means the world to me <3) which brings the total raised to $3 290 only $9 210 more to raise  by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot.

 

Today I got this idea into my head I don’t know if it’s the safest thing to do but  I’ve decided to believe in the possibility of all my dreams until somebody tells me the pursuit of certain dreams would be the signing of my death warrant  (I believe in this soul on fire living in a body that doesn’t match her personality. I back this girl every day in every way…. I believe in God and me because if I don’t I have not a hope in hell of making others believe in me).

Day 2510: God is Everywhere

God is everywhere – that’s what I know.

 

It’s 12 : 59 PM on day 2510 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read James 5:14,  have breakfast and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised to $2 555 only $9 945 more to raise  by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot .

 

This morning my mother heard me praying in the bathroom and said light-heartedly don’t pray in the toilet to which I yelled back also light-heartedly God is everywhere and continued praying I truly believe God is in every person, place and thing.

Day 2476: God, Faith and Desperation

Where there is God desperation is not– that’s what I realized.

 

It’s 11 : 56 AM on day 2476 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Isaiah 40: 31,go to church, have breakfast and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet –  total raised  $1 335 only $11 165 more to raise in 357 days to help 50 kids with clubfoot.

 

Yesterday I realized that where there is God desperation is not and since I can’t have faith and be desperate at the same time I’m choosing to have a lot of faith.

Day 2365: God, Me and Thieves

You’ve got to thank God for the close calls and near-misses – that’s what I’ve realized.

 

It’s 12 : 05 PM on day 2365 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Proverbs 14: 27,  have breakfast, and learn a new word – Contemporaneous (con·tem·po·ra·ne·ous) adj.  Originating, existing, or happening during the same period of time: “The contemporaneous court cases for the two defendants.”

 

Yesterday there was a break-in somewhere in our neighbourhood and the thieves escaped by jumping over our fence I think someone from the security company even fired a shot thankfully nobody was hurt and I was inside all I saw was the security guy running across our yard and returning to ask my mom to open the gate it has gotten me thinking though I have this habit of sitting outside enjoying nature but yesterday at the time I was inside on my laptop I know that was God watching out for me (thanks God I promise to make the most of this life).

 

Day 2357: Why God Says No

God’s no is always a redirection – that’s what I was reminded of yesterday

 

It’s 10  :  24 AM on day 2357 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, have breakfast, go to church – the sermon was about worry and how we shouldn’t worry –  learn a new word –  Definitions for runnel 1. a small stream; brook; rivulet. 2.a small channel, as for water.

 

Yesterday I was thinking about the fact that if I had gone to the Great Moscow Circus yesterday like I wanted to in January then I wouldn’t have been able to participate in the CANSA Shavathon which also took place yesterday (even when we don’t get what we want things work out for the best – God’s no is always a redirection).

Day 2268: Because God Has Something Better in Mind

When you don’t get what you want believe God has something better in mind – that’s my message to the world.

 

it’s 11: 13 AM on day 2268 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray,   read Colossians 3:17 and work on my  25 Smiles Campaign    –raised $9 161.04 only  $3 338.96 more to raise to reach my second goal of raising $12 500 for Smile Train before Jan 10 2017 (SO SO SO GRATEFUL to everyone who has supported this campaign so far ).

 

Yesterday I realized that something I really want to do was likely not going to happen I cried about it for a long while (I hardly ever cry unless I’m in physical pain or discomfort) but now I’m choosing to believe if I don’t get what I want it’s because God has something better in mind.

Day 2226: God Thinks I’m Pretty Badass

God thinks I’m pretty badass – that’s what I’ve realized.

 

It’s 11 : 14  AM on day 2225 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, have breakfast, go to the doctor (I’ll be fine in about 5 days), have breakfast, read Psalm 42:11   and work on my  25 Smiles Campaign    –raised $8 011.04 only  $4 488.96 more to raise to reach my second goal of raising $12 500 for Smile Train before Jan 10 2017 (SO SO SO GRATEFUL to everyone who has supported this campaign so far ).

 

Today I realized God thinks I’m pretty badass otherwise He wouldn’t give me all this stuff to handle (thanks God I accept the compliment)

Day 2224: God Is Not Just In Church

God is in you, in your actions and in your words not just in church – that’s my message to the world.

 

It’s 10 : 56  AM on day 2224 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Haggai 2:6-7, have breakfast, learn one new thing – Efficacious [ef·fi·ca·cious] adj. Successful in producing a desired or intended result; effective. “Efficacious treatment for the disease.”– and work on my  25 Smiles Campaign    –raised $8 011.04 only  $4 488.96 more to raise to reach my second goal of raising $12 500 for Smile Train before Jan 10 2017 (SO SO SO GRATEFUL to everyone who has supported this campaign so far ).

 

This morning I was thinking about my younger days when I had to go to church to feel like a Christian and to feel the presence of God which is in stark contrast to the way I feel today now I understand that God is in me, in my words and in my actions. God meets me wherever I am and accepts me just as I am.
