I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow.1 Corinthians 3:6 NIV
My parents were united in my upbringing. A seed was planted in 1980, It was watered. Nurtured. But God…but God groomed me to be the woman I am today. I grew up going to Sunday School, I got confirmed at 14 as a full member of the church. I didn’t know the Word of God. I didn’t know God.
I accepted Jesus as my Saviour whilst still at high school, but…like any other child, didn’t take Him seriously. But God knew that the time will come when I would not be ashamed of His Gospel. I am a great fan of Joyce Meyer. Battlefield Of The Mind healed me from self-induced depression, acts of the flesh, living in the dark. Stormie Ormatian taught me the power of prayer. Priscilla Shirer taught me to believe in the God who supplies all my needs.
But God…groomed me. He groomed me to stand boldly and be His true disciple. His ambassador.
When I got married, there were those that thought I would not make it as “I am soft-spoken”. But God groomed me, He told me not to be afraid. To lean on Him. I have made serious financial blunders. But God…His mercies are new each morning. He makes a way in the wilderness. I sought His wisdom. I remained at His feet…and through it all, I’ve learned to trust in Him.
Enough about me…do you trust the Lord? Do you believe that He can clothe you like He does the lilies of fields?
In 9 months I will be 40 years old. And will be reading Psalm 1:1-3 to everyone who lends me an ear.
For I have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.

I love You Lord, For Your mercies never end. Your grace is sufficient. In the name of Jesus. Amen
