“everyone has sinned and is far away from God’s saving presence.”

Romans 3:23 GNB

In other words, or the way I like it to sound is which completely doesn’t distort the initial passage is:

For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.

All have sinned and all have fallen short.  Where then do we get the right to find ourselves better than another?  Where would we be able to say we were better because we were saved or because we were closer to God or sinned less?  Every person has fallen short of God’s perfection.  It doesn’t matter if one person got “closer” to perfection than another, because they too fell short.  God saved us apart from the law because we all are not good enough.  The “holier than thou” attitude is idiotic since we all are in the same depravity.  Who cares if one is less of a piece of scum than another?  We all are depraved sinners.  We all need salvation.  There is no reason why one would find themselves better than another when they realise that we all are depraved and unworthy.

Let’s pray:

Father God, I thank You for the Holy Spirit who fights fiercely on my behalf when I struggle with sin. Lord, make me sensitive to Your correction and sanctification while helping me to walk confidently in my salvation.  Remind me that You will have the final victory over my struggle with sin, because You are alive in me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.



““You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.”

  • Matthew 5:14

“You are destined to shine”

This verse is so powerful ,despite how many times we’ve heard the “we are a light” it’s true and can go so deep.

The world is full of darkness and as children of God he has anointed us with his spiritual light to shine for his glory.. much like the fire that appeared with the apostles when the Holy Ghost filled them (Acts 2:3-4). We are SET APART! God has his blessings on you so don’t worry about what all you have to do but focus your mind on the kingdom of God (Matt 6:33) that will lead to fulfilment of his word and your prosperity.

What amazes me about God is his constant trust and love he has for us. We as a people may screw up every now and then and we may go through things all to learn that God NEVER GAVE UP ON US! and GOD WILL/CAN PROVIDE when in times of need!!!!! All being said that The same fire that was once in us before we mess up is still there ( even tho we may feel dim) the fire still lives in is and we have to acknowledge the fact that “we gotta get back to work for the kingdom of God and do things for his glory”. So in all said : no matter how mad we mess up God still has a plan for you and still has faith in you to bring glory to his name… so keep teaching or whatever you do that God has blessed his holy sprit on you.

(1 Corinthians 12:1-11).

“You have purpose ” so don’t give up the mighty fire within you for a dim moment in life , keep the faith and be confident in your work but most of all stay in prayer so that God will lead and guide us in our work for his kingdom.


Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

Ephesians 3:20

I am not content to be average. I don’t like that word. I don’t want to be average. I don’t intend to be average.


It’s true that in this life we go through challenges, we pass through situations, hardships… But God is above everything, because His power is above all powers.

God can, we can and let’s get this: The ball is on our court. Let’s be  bold, let’s dare to believe and be brave. We have that power because God has given it to us.

I recently read a post from Ashley Gulley  with the title No Guts, No Glory’ and it definitely relates to what I mean by not being content with average. Sometimes, we have to get out of our comfort zones, dare and believe that we can achieve all things because there’s a mightier and greater power in control. When you fully let go, and make God the wheel, you realize then that the actions of the Almighty aren’t just natural but supernatural. The power of God is unlimited. As for me, I decided to believe God is able. Yes he is, he can!!!

Nothing is impossible for God. And believe it or not, I come from far, very far. My journey will never be yours. The only thing I can say is that whatever promise God has made to us, it shall come true. Keep faith and never you limit God by your mouth. Control your tongue no matter the noise around your corner, make sure whatever comes out from your mouth is a blessing for your surrounding

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man it is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God.

Mark 10:27. 

Stay blessed,

19’s Observations.


WATCH YOUR MOUTH!” is a phrase my siblings and I heard frequently from our parents during our developmental years. “WATCH YOUR MOUTH!” was used as a reminder for my siblings and I to stay within the communication boundaries of discipline, respect, honesty, and positivity established by our parents. I can only recall the phrase being used when we went contrary to our parents’ directives or if our words went against God’s commands.

Similar to a parent reminding a child to evaluate their words, God informs his children the power of their words and the importance of choosing words wisely. With our tongues we either speak; life or death, victory or defeat, insecurity or confidence, weakness or strength, trust or doubt, but whatever you say, be prepared to eat the fruit of your words.


There have probably been times in your life when you’ve said things that were hurtful towards yourself and others. When that happens it is vital to seek and receive God’s forgiveness, repent and thoughtfully give attention to your words from that point on.

It all starts with watching our mouth because the words we speak have long-lasting impact directly connected to our present and future circumstances. You’d be surprised how your words are effecting your situation. 

Scripture reveals several accounts regarding individuals either watching their mouths or carelessly using words. In both cases we are shown the effect of the tongue’s power. Words can teach, encourage and uplift. They also can discourage, reject and demean. Words can express gratitude, love, and joy. They also can express selfishness, hate and despondency. Our aim is to speak what God says about our situations and not what our inconsistent emotions want us to declare.

No matter what is going on in your life today, it’s time to “WATCH YOUR MOUTH!” Don’t get distracted by the trial or the mirage that nothing will change, begin declaring God’s word. This is a work in progress that requires discipline, trust, and faith. But once you begin to get in the rhythm of using your words wisely in thanksgiving and praise to God, when the wrong words try to come out, you will be able to take action and bounce back to God’s words. Speak life and watch your mouth!

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”

Proverbs 18:21.


IMG_1907“As for you, my brothers and sisters, you were called to be free. But do not let this freedom become an excuse for letting your physical desires control you. Instead, let love make you serve one another.”

Galatians 5:13 GNB

Just because I can doesn’t always mean I should.

God has given us free will, meaning we are not stuck on a chain by him, we have The ultimate freedom to do whatever, but that does not mean you go crazy or please the world in negative ways, please the lord in positive ways by spreading love, exemplifying him, through you, Amen.

This reminds me of the global conversation about freedom of speech. It is a great liberty to be able to say things and be persecuted for them: our beliefs, our dissatisfaction with elected leaders (who cannot jail and kill us for doing so!), and to express ourselves.

At the core however, is something deeper: the Word. Love one another, with our deeds and words. Real affection, whenever possible, is a choice sometimes difficult to make but at the core of Jesus’s teaching.
