α cup σf wαtєr 

A boy was seated under a tree very thirsty and he needed water but there was no water. Suddenly he saw some drops of water dripping from the tree. He took a cup and started tapping the drops. When water got to half the cup and he was ready to drink, a bird came and knocked the cup down so the water poured. It happened three times and the boy felt very bad. He took a stone and killed the bird. 

After the bird had died, he saw a big snake coming down from the tree. So he discovered that what he wanted to drink was not really water but poison. He felt so guilty that he had killed the bird that saved his life. 

Some times God is like this bird to us. He knows when we are about to take poison but we get so bitter with him when he is trying to help us. May be what you thought was water was poison. Drop the pain because there is better for you. 


Lord help me today to see all the birds around me who keep on kicking the poisonous cups. Keep My eyes open and senses sharpened so I can safely rest your arms in Jesus name.  Amen

Watch your eyes, watch your eyes what they see…

Be It – To See It

Hi Gorgeous,

So yesterday we dealt with speaking words over our friends – true friends. While I was talking to one of my 8D’s, (8 Diamonds – One of the 8 gems I mentor), I was told by the person that they wrote down the declarations and was stirred by what I wrote.  I felt very happy. However, when I realized why she was stirred I felt like sharing, the secret behind such a blessing in my life – my four confidants.

In Bishop T.D. Jakes’ infamous message on the three types of persons you will meet in your lifetime (Confidant, Constituents and Comrades), he says “If you have 3 confidants in a lifetime – you did good”.  Smile.  So I believe, I’ve done very well… based on his statement because I have four.  smile.

After sharing with her, I feel like I wanna give you guys also, the background on how I became blessed with these precious gem of friends. Maybe it may inspire someone today.

I had no friends growing up LITERALLY! I had a few persons I  thought were my friends but I later found out that everybody just used me to get in or out of trouble, or pretty much for ‘my mind’.   I got fed up in my teen years about this cycle and just felt even lonelier because I am an only child. I always said: “I just want a friend who loves me – for me.”  Seemed an impossible dream. While attending a youth gathering in my latter teen years, I heard the preacher say amidst his message: “If you need a true Friend, you can get Jesus as a Friend”.  I found the statement very weird but intriguing. I had never heard that before and put in such a simple manner. “Have God as a true Friend?”, I questioned. “Is that really possible?”  I had a relationship with Him being a Christian and all, but I never had the concept He could be my Friend.

I wondered how to make that happen. Then as if that preacher was reading my mind, he said “Do you wanna know how?”   Eyes wide opened, I said in my thoughts, “yes, yes, yes”. He replied “Just ask Him”  I’m like “huh? just ask? Is it that easy,?” Sounded way too simple. A mean, shouldn’t it be way more complicated? (I have found that we Christians love to complicate things). Well, eventually I prayed a prayer of some sorts. Moved on. Forgot about it.

I can’t say I fully understood what the prayer meant or was supposed to do, but I figure, I would make the first step towards Him. So I ‘befriended’ the Holy Spirit and He me. I was intent on making Him my first best friend for a lifetime. (Best Friend Eternally – My BFE).   I thought about it and decided to take it very seriously.  So I began spending a lot of time with Him and no one else. I made being with Him an exclusive  VIP affair. I stopped going certain places where my “friends” would go and I used that time and just be with Him.  Just hang out.  Nothing planned or preconceived.  Just chat. In the beginning, it was difficult. It certainly felt like I was talking to thin air but I knew He was real. I would talk for hours and hear nothing back. At times I was frustrated but I didn’t give up hope. I figured, He must be hearing so maybe one day He will answer me the way I want Him to. I would tell myself: “After all  He hears when I pray, and He answers, so I know He is hearing me now. One day He will answer me the way I know He can – One on one”.  Hours turned into days, days turned into months and months became years. I got to know Him and he allowed me to get to know myself. After a while, I could hear Him – in my heart – my thoughts. I could feel Him on my body. I could sense Him in my spirit. I felt loved – really loved. Whenever I left the house, I couldn’t wait to return to be alone with Him. We talked about everything and anything, for hours at a time. He is a great conversationalist I have found. We had a lot of fun and laughter together – still do.

The interesting thing is, I didn’t realize these sequence of events, until one day I was sharing about some hardships I underwent and how if it wasn’t for Jesus, and my friends I would’ve never survived. Just then, in that moment – I realized how rich I am to have such valuable possessions in my life. It was in that inconvenient time the Lord showed me in flash the entire thing I’m explaining to you now. It was like rewinding a movie right back to the beginning. I was amazed.

Then he whispered in my heart: “When you stopped searching for friends, and became a friend, I was able to bring the right friends to you”. I stood there before the mass of people listening to me, completely dumbstruck and fumbling, as the whole scenery melted my heart. He continued: “you sowed yourself as a seed of friendship to Me, so I gave you a harvest of True Friendship”.

I began to weep in front the crowd of people listening to me. They must have thought I was nuts or just overwhelmed from all my struggles. I really didn’t  realize what I had done all those years ago. I was just tired and weary so I took Him as a last option, but he turned it around all for my good and now I am reaping a harvest straight from his hands. He’s awesome.

You see, I was always talking with God as my Father, but never knew him as Friend. At age 19, I made that decision to ‘befriend Him’ and within 2 years my first true friend was birth. This happened while at another youth event those years ago. He showed me a vision of an assignment he was empowering me to do and then He told me “go and talk with *Pamela because you are going to need her help in the task I am assigning to you”.  I was not amused because as a young immature person with petty issues, I was not fond of Pamela at all. Albeit, I obeyed and within a year we were best of friends. She then became my first human best friend for years… we were inseparable – like sisters. She introduced me to the book “Good Morning Holy Spirit” by Benny Hinn and that took my relationship with the Holy Spirit to a whole other level.

A few years later, the Lord Jesus provided me with the other 3 friends through various random, but divinely orchestrated events. Now my once seemingly impossible dream is a complete reality. They love me for me – ALL MY FLAWS AND EVERYTHING! I am blessed to be such a blessing to God and others. God is good.

So, now you’ve heard the story. Why have I told you? What’s the point?

The main point I want you my reader to take away from my story, is that, when I became the change I wanted – the change I needed came rushing to me. Let me encourage you today, be the change you want to see.  Be the person you want in your life. When you do, those same persons will come right around to you.

Have a blessed day today my gorgeous reader.

*Pamela – not her real name.








I stumbled upon this beautiful pic and just had to share. It reminds me of what Jesus told me a few weeks ago, while in the midst of intense trials. Okay, lemme back up a bit.

A few months ago I went through a very, very, very challenging period in my life. I call it “my prison pit period”. *Shudders as eerie music plays and halts suddenly*  It lasted approximately five months with the last three weeks being the worst of all. It is dwindling right now, but still not completely over. I didn’t know I could’ve survived. I expressed it in my poetic devotional book “Embrace Me” and showed how God brought me through is bringing me through. This book means so much to me, and the lessons I learnt are so valuable, that I want to make it free for all to have in their possession (as soon as I figure out how – really trying to figure out how to do so).  Right now you can grab a copy for less than the price of your coffee :-).

Anywhoooo, in the midst of all the drama and persistent tears, the Lord told me:

“I have given you wings with which to fly, use them”.

“Aum, what Lord?”

Honestly, I still am uncertain what he meant when he told me. (I feel like the disciples who kept hearing: “I’m, going to die and be raised again three days later” and never understood even after he did die – clueless). Yet something about that pic, feels like what I think he must have meant (still do mean?).

So I wanted to share it with you gorgeous readers.

My interpretation of it goes something like this: Don’t be afraid to try (something new or a new way of doing an old thing), you might find if you fall/fail, its the perfect position from which you can learn to fly.

~Love and Blessings

Today’s freebie is my brand new book entitled:

“Giant Gems – Inspirational Quotes and Stories to Motivate, Meditate and Move You.”

This little book (it’s a short read) was birth out of the many life lessons which I have undergone. My own struggles led me to coin a few motivational quotes to assist me in times of despair and despondency.  Unknown to me, as I ministered around or shared these quotes on various social media, persons were helped tremendously and even delivered from certain nefarious situations. As they shared their stories with me, I became very motivated to help others even more, by sharing my own stories of the circumstances under which these quotations were coined. At the end of all those struggles and issues, Jesus fought for me in his love and helped me overcome my challenges and the birth of certain quotations were cemented. Jesus is awesome!

All I ask my loyal readers and bloggers, is that you write an honest review of your read.  Can you promise me that you will please?  Thank you kindly:-)

I pray sincerely that this book will bless you immensely. My desire is that this book will not only inspire you, but motivate and move you to meditate upon the love of the Lord and his power to save.

Angelic Encounter – DGEB

“In one of my first encounters with an angel, I was quietly reading a passage of scripture when the Lord asked me,  “Would you like to know the name of your guardian angel?”   I replied, “Is that possible?” He told me the name of my guardian angel and said, “Go ahead and call his name, if you call his name he will come.”

I was really afraid. Then the Lord interrupted my thoughts and repeated, “If you call his name, he will come to you.”  This he repeated three times. So, I stood and called the name of my guardian angel. The minute the words left my lips, an awesome presence filled my room.  The life and energy emanating from his presence was astounding.

I had never encountered such an incredible rush of energy,  such a dramatic atmospheric shift. It wasn’t a fearful presence for he didn’t come to cause me fear. However, the instantaneous change in the atmosphere filled me with awe and reverence. I did not see the angel with my physical eyes, neither did I see him with my spiritual eyes, but I literally felt a change in the atmosphere. It went from being ordinary to being filled with life, energy and light.  My  heart began to palpitate and I couldn’t help declaring, “Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God!”

It was a wonderful encounter and from that day I had confidence in knowing that my angel was always on guard ready to protect me, and ready to defend me.    God has assigned additional protection to His people through His angelic beings”.
