HAPPY NEW YEAR LE FAMILY WE MADE IT….
Happy New Year Guys, I hope this Blog reaches you in Good health. Let us give thanks to the Lord for waking us up today and keeping us though this season.
Before I go into this year, I really want to walk you through my 2020 before we close the door tight and walk into 2021 in its full essence, it is good to reflect. Plus it really sets the tone to give you inspiration, motivation and encouragement of what is to come.
“Walk but Faith and Not by Sight” Well this has never been a truer scripture can describe my 2020- With 2020 starting out with the hope of all of god’s promise of expanding the Life Essence Ministry, I knew it was going to be a tough year! What I did not expect was to be locked up in my home, thinking I might need to take it easy on the low roll. As the “crazies” stocked oiled due to Covid-19 pandemic with their panic buying!
Not only was I locked up in my house, but I had also given up (in faith) my full-time good-paying job in February, to embark on a housing project to support women, literally 2 weeks before we were told there was a national crisis at hand.
So not only was I jobless, the country was at a standstill, how on earth was I going to expand a charity, buy a house and support women now!
What the Heck had I just done???? I asked myself!! Then I had to deal with others and their unwanted opinions ha! People called me mad, crazy, asked me how I was going to survive. Honestly, all I could respond back was, God knows, I am walking out in faith, I am going to be fine, don’t worry about me.
In my head, the conversations with God went a bit like this; “Lord, you have brought me this far, do not leave me. I know I heard from you and I am being obedient. Please don’t make me look like a fool, I know you got this!”
My faith was strong, the drive to do what God had put in my heart was so strong, and I knew that no matter what it looked like in the world.
God was in control of everything, and if He said this is going to happen in 2020- It was going to happen! I laugh now because I can see God’s hand in every, we got the house we wanted, we got the furniture, we got the women-Life Essence Housing and Support was born.
Not only that but I managed to redecorate my own home and buy and Mercs 2020 plate- I don’t tell you these things to brag and boast. Not at ALL, and I’m certainly nowhere near where God wants me to, But this is to show you how our god works, even in a time when we should wither and lose. God can show up and ensure you win-even in a world that is stricken with illness, we can still win!
So whatever God is telling you for 2021-GO GET IT!
Walk Straight into Faith!!!!
“For we walk by faith, not by sight .”
(2 Corinthians 5:7).
What is your personal reflection of this passage? read the passage again slowly and hear what it is saying to you? Reflection: Fill this space with your thoughts…..for example:
Understanding that there is more than what can be seen, God is working even when we can see it.
So, walking by faith and not by sight means we live in accordance to God’s promises, even though we cannot see them. That we shouldn’t get blind dighted by the things that our eyes often focus on here on earth.
What are your personal actions for this new season, what has God said to you personally through this scripture?
Whatever you need to do, do it!
Fill this space with your actions…eg.
Do you need to- Keep Moving, even if You don’t Know where you are going and trust in God?
Do you need to- Do what God has asked you even though you are scared?
For me, I will be starting a New Live Series called Unplugged, why don’t you Join me This Sunday as we set aside some space for the presence of Jesus.
There are some things that you need God to partner with you this year. You need God to move in your circumstances, invite God to partner with you on!
Send up your own personal prayer, remember prayer is the time when you talk to God, doesn’t have to be fancy 🙂 Prayer. If you are finding it difficult to pray you can say the prayer below to help you talk to God.
Father, in the name of Jesus, I call on you to make way for me where there seems to be no way. Lord cause your abundance supply in my life over and over. Lord do a new thing, make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. As in Isaiah 43:19 in Jesus name AMEN.

More Scriptures for walking in faith
And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.
So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
1 Corinthians 2:5
That your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.
