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.

 

Day 2206: Letting Go and Letting God

Let go and let God – that’s what I’m trying to do.

 

It’s 9 : 11  AM on day 2206 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read 1 Peter 4:8,  and work on my  25 Smiles Campaign    –raised $7 675 only  $4 825 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 ).

 

 

Recently I’ve been trying extra hard to let go and let God which is harder than one might think even when you do have faith.

Day 2198: Why I’m Trying Not to Worry

With God in me I can get through anything – that’s what I keep realizing.

 

It’s 10: 46  AM on day 2198 of my journey towards independence and I managed to have breakfast, pray, read Psalm 16: 11     and work on my  25 Smiles Campaign    –raised $7 675 only  $4 825 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 that although it’s hard I shouldn’t be so worried about my health because with God in me I can get through anything.

Day 2176: Coincidence and God

Coincidence is God’s way of staying anonymous – that’s what I keep realizing.

 

It’s 12 : 00  PM on day 2176 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Psalm 46: 10 , have breakfast, learn one new thing –air is not a mixture because of scientists freezing it and finding different liquids, it is a mixture because the compounds that make up air e.g. oxygen (o2), Carbon dioxide (co2) and the most important Nitrogen which is an element and makes up 78.09% of air are not chemically bound in the way that compounds are …-   and work on my  25 Smiles Campaign    –    raised $7 500 only  $5 000 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 feeling anxious about a few things until I read Psalm 46: 10 (Be still and know that I am God) I mean what are the chances that mom would pick out exactly that verse from the box of Bible verses my sister gave me –  coincidence is God’s way of staying anonymous.
