Strapless dress+ change of season

STRAPLESS DRESSES

Winter is taking its time to come in South Africa (or rather in Bloemfontein) so I wore this  STRAPLESS tourquise dress the other day. The delay of change of season kinda made me think of something: Nature has four seasons. Each one is different and beautiful and unique. Life has seasons, too.

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. (Ecclesiastes 3:1 KJV




We should greet life’s changing seasons relying upon God’s promise given us through the apostle Paul: “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” (Romans 8:28 NLT) So when it comes to new seasons in life, we can trust that they are normal. If we embrace the new season and see the good in it, life will take on new meaning. The Lord said that He would never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5-6) and He wants to use us in each season for His purposes
So when we have a new season in life, let’s not go backwards or get stuck. Let’s remember David, who entered the battle with Goliath as a disregarded little brother and shepherd boy and left God’s faithful warrior. Let’s see each new season with wonder and awe and see it as an adventure with God, who is able to do more than we could ever ask or imagine by His power at work within us. (Ephesians 3:20-21)

Try to see the good in every season. The wisest man to ever live once said, “God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11 NLT



Even though Winter is taking it's time to come, I know that it is gonna come, have the same confidence in your situation- things will change.
It doesn't matter what season you are going through, God knows that He is doing. He will make everything work out in your FAVOUR.

RELAX..... He knows what he is doing, HE IS God after all....

'God, what are you doing?'

Singleness can sometimes cause you to wonder: 'God, what are you doing?'  During this season I have learnt some MAJOR lessons through spending time with God and really paying attention to what He wants me to know about every season of my life. Anyway here are some of the things God has been teaching me about this SEASON:

I am teaching you to SUBMIT to your future husband
I know that when I do get married, submitting to my husband will NOT be a strange concept to me because as a single woman I am learning to be submissive to God.  I have realised that submitting to God prepares to submit to my future husband. And for the guys, sumbitting to God while they are single helps them to prepare to become great leaders (husbands).

I am teaching you to COMMUNICATE with your husband
The single season of your life is a great time to perfect yourself and your relationship skills. One doesn’t just snap into being a great communicator and problem solver. Years of working issues out with family, friends and in the ministry are all preparation for the great test of living with someone in a committed relationship. Now is the time to nurture good habits personally, domestically, financially and professionally. Now is not the time to fall down on the job of life. Be the best that you can be and that way you are sure to be a gift, not just to your husband, but to all that encounter you.

I'm teaching you to become COMPASSIONATE and LOVING towards others.
I am learning to love with the Corinthians 13 kinda love
Love is patient. Love is Kind. Love does not keep a record of wrong. Love bears all things. If is was not for God, I would still think that is it okay to point out people's mistakes as if I am perfect. It is safe to say I will be a compassion and loving wife.

I am teaching you to KNOW me
God has directed my heart to get to know Him better and that is what I am doing to and I am really amazed at how much He has teaching me ever since I decided to draw near to Him. The following scripture is so true

James 8:8a “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you”
God is such a gentleman, He will never force Himself on us, he wants us to invite Him then only will he come. Knowing God and His heart prepares me to be a GREAT girlfriend and wife. It prepares me to be that great WOMAN OF GOD that I so desire to become.

I am teaching you to TRUST me
Without a 'boo' to call whenever I go through something, I have learned to trust God first above anything. Trusting God has become such a favouite thing to do. I have learnt to put my trust in my FATHER first.

I am teaching you to first look for me in everything.
Just because I am single it does not mean I do not have guys hitting on me and trying to make moves. I do and God has been giving me the spirit of discernment. He is teaching me what to look for in a guy (when the guy does the approaching ofcouse-NOT ME). I am so after God in everything that I do, all these guys that are not passionate about God should really just MOVE along 'cause I am all about God and putting Him first

I am teaching you to be CONTENT in me alone and know where your VALUE comes from.
Any guy that comes in my life will not complete me, they will COMPLIMENT me because I know my value comes from God, my inner peace comes from God and God alone.


                                               
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thy own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Proverbs 3:5-6

See yourself the WAY God sees you.

Hi my name is Cindy and The Lord Most High deemed me worthy of the GREATEST love, the GREATEST happiness, the GREATEST peace, the GREATEST truth.  I am LOVED with the GREATEST love.


I have never quite thought about it but has it ever occured to you that you have a relationship with yourself?  We spend most of our time with ourselves so it is vital that we get along with ourselves. You are like the one person that you can not escape from haha. It is vital that we love ourselves and accept ourselves, now I am not saying this in a selfish, self-centred manner. I am saying this in a Godly manner. We must love ourselves in that kind of love that says: 'I know that God loves me, so I will love what God chooses to love'. We can love ourselves by knowing who we are in Christ.



Whether you believe it or not, much of your happiness in life depends on how you think God sees you. Sadly, many of us have a wrong idea of God's opinion of us. We base it on what we've been taught, our bad experiences in life, and many other assumptions. We may think God is disappointed in us or that we'll never measure up. We may even believe God is angry with us because try as we might, we can't stop sinning.
But if we want to know the truth, we need to go to the source: God himself.  God tells you how he sees you in his personal message to his followers, THE BIBLE. What you can learn in those pages about what He thinks of you is nothing short of amazing.

GOD IS CRAZY ABOUT YOU however it doesn't help that I can tell you what God thinks about you, God has love letters in a form of a book just for you called the bible and that is where you can find out  EXACTLY what he wants you to know for sure.





I love playing with 'my' hair


Everything formed by the hands of the Most High is marvelous all on its own. God’s creations do not need any additions to be perfect - they already are, simply because HE created them. God created ME. I do not need any additions to be perfect - I am already perfect, simply because HE created me. Only what Christ thinks of me matters.

                   fantasies for me and eaten alive’ Audre Lorde.
