Today is a special entry into my blog, celebrating another year of so many blessings, so many disappointments, so many challenges, opportunities, unhappy moments, elating moments and yet, all that was God’s plan to lead me to my greatest victories and the promises he has in store for me.
This morning, as I was having the delicious breakfast my husband prepared for me, I reflected back on my life’s path; and the women’s event that took place this weekend popped into my head straight after. At that time God said to me, “this is what I wanted you to do, this is how I wanted you to serve me, well done, you make Me proud.”
I arrived at the venue this weekend where the event took place; and I was welcomed with open arms, with such warmth, love, compassion, a sincere welcome from Vongani Hlaise, who is the founder and director of “Lady in Heels”. I felt refilled and revived when her entire family welcomed me like I was their sister. I was bathing in acceptance without having to work for it, that is when I knew once again, that my footsteps was directed by Him. I walked in authority, in favor of what the Lord wanted me to accomplish and I felt blessed to share my story with these ladies.
Today, I celebrate my 34th Birthday and I realized that my blessings run deeper than what is on the surface, my blessings run deeper than what I “normally” think. I received insurmountable calls from family, more so than I did last year; and God gave me a message with that, He said, “You see the blessings without even looking for the blessings.”
I am blessed with a husband who loves me, that woke up at 4:30am this morning to make me breakfast in bed, with children who promised to buy me a fidget spinner for my birthday, although I didn’t ask for it, with a step grandmother and her children who love me, with a mother-in-law and her sisters who adore more, with a brother who sent me a “please call me” to let me know I need to call him so he can wish me and that he didn’t forget, with cousins who care for me like no other, with aunts who convey how proud they are of me and what an encouragement I am to my cousins, with people I have met in all walks of life to let me know that this special day is remembered.
This is the reason why I boast in this day, because this is the day that the Lord has made.
No matter how “un”- present certain things are that you hope for, it simply does not mean it is not there if you do not see it or experience it, for my God gave me a profound message today….
He said, “You have to believe it before you see it!”
The thanks and love in my heart for all those who has routed me on in silence, your blessings have been received.
