In the beginning, God created… (Genesis 1:1).
Dear, ALian! Happy September!
Just before I started writing this entry I was musing on what to share with you and I asked the Holy Ghost. He said, “when you start writing, I’ll give you the words.” I was still asking while I opened the app and then as soon as I saw the blank page for new entries the words came—beautiful things do not just appear, they’re created.
You know how excited it gets when He speaks! I’m excited to share this with you.
Genesis 1:1 came as a confirmation of that word. Over time how I’ve always confirmed the voice of God is through scriptures. And so, subconsciously, I don’t take actions on the voices in my heart until I receive confirmation from the Word. You know why already if you’ve read Idols (if not, read here).
With the hustle-bustle of new month and beginnings, no scripture is more apt than this one that lighted on my spirit few seconds ago.
As we begin the last four months of the year, this is your reminder to create. Create! Design. Make. Mould.
Speak into existence what you want to see in these last four months.
Maybe you’ve allowed life happen to you in the past 8 months; it’s never too late to take back control. Create!
You are a life-giving spirit. Create!
You may be asking like Mary did “How will these things be?” “I have huge dreams, goals, plans that scare me.” Well, I have goodnews! See!
They were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone from the entrance to the tomb for us?” Looking up, they noticed that the stone — which was very large — had been rolled away. Mark 16:3,4 (CSB).
You have supernatural help! Hallelujah!
Have a fabulous September!

He will calm your fears.
On Zephaniah 3:17.
This morning, I found this scripture, (more like it found me, because it was screaming “read me”). I would think it’s because last night I went to bed with several concerns and the last thought on my mind was that Jesus is the Saviour, and I am not (I mean, I can barely save myself🤷🏽♀️), so I would rest in His arms.
Cut to this morning, the reality of dawn brought back those concerns and I know I was afraid, but I would not admit it to myself because it’s “christianese” to say that “God has not given me the Spirit of fear…”
So, He asked me “How many places do you find “I will deliver you from your fears” in the bible?”
I said “Several”, then He said “I wouldn’t promise to deliver you from fears if I didn’t think you’d have them. Fears are a human thing, and it’s okay to have them. What is not, is staying in fear. That’s why you confess scripture… Not to deny your current reality, but to create a new one.”
I thought to share, for anyone like me who’s afraid to say they are afraid. God promises to calm your fears. 🤍
Good night. 🤍
Ps: this is an exhausted me typing.
