A Grateful Heart

If you know me, then you will know I’m able to keep my focus on one thing for a really long time . I have been commended for this trait by some, criticized and yelled at by others for my seemingly inability to be discouraged from a pursuit, they call it fixation, I prefer to call it persistence (It is positive๐Ÿค” ๐Ÿ˜‚). 

Fixation or persistence isn’t a bad thing, as long as you are fixating on the right thing. Since my discovery of the power in the word of God, I’m now very intentional on what takes up my time and energy. I deliberately choose to focus on my strengths and to appreciate the positives in people and situations. I can testify to how therapeutic it has been.. Whatever you focus on truly expands!


Keep your gaze on only the good!.. fixate all you want๐Ÿ˜œ. Have a heart of gratitude for what you have... watch it expand. And most importantly, fight discouragement because the devil will work overtime to try to refocus you.

My challenge to you today is to count your many blessings and name them one by one(singing) it will definitely surprise you what the Lord has done. That’s for sure...

Always ๐Ÿ’• ๐Ÿ’• on my mind,

Super Autism Mom

I am neither a writer nor a good story teller and  I know this because I had never enjoyed being either. Normal me struggle with expressing my ideas both verbally and in writing. I’m a visual person I would often say... I understand graphs, pictures, maps and numbers. I’m also very comfortable with stating facts and research. And (Oh) boy! how much I love using concise words such as quotes and proverbs. So why do I all of a sudden feel the urge to voice out my emotions...I believe it’s a mark of my healing or perhaps, a coping mechanism. I have bottled up so much over the years that I now crave the need to be light . I’m intentionally choosing to let go and completely let God by sharing my journey as an Autism Mom. My goal is to encourage someone else on this journey and like I always say if I’m able to inspire hope in just one person, then I’m fulfilled.

I am so excited that I finally have the courage to start a blog. I’m always a decade late with trying whatever is trending but like they say better late than never๐Ÿ˜Š.

The plan with this blog is to grow my christian faith by applying bible quotes/ lessons to simple real life situations. I’ve had my fair share of struggle with finding a sense of purpose in life, rediscovering my values and studying the bible to develop a closer relationship with God have all been instrumental to the overflowing of hope that I now feel. I’m motivated to inspire that same hope, even if it’s in just one other person.
I’m ๐Ÿ’ฏ convinced that the bible has all the answers to all of life concerns, the best person to ask about how something works is always the person who creates it. So, join me in discovering from the creator of life our “who”, “what”and “how” in life.

Faith: Believing is Seeing

I never really understood the difference between faith and belief until recently. I had always assumed faith was just the biblical way of saying belief, but I have come to realize that it is much more than that. You see, in my opinion, belief can simply be quantified as a Yes/No variable i.e, you either believe or you don’t.
However, faith adds another layer to believing. It’s all about how committed you are to what you believe. It is a continuous variable of which quantity matters, the question with faith is not if you have faith or not, it’s how much of it do you have? Faith is always active while belief can be passive. You can believe in something and stay on the sidelines, but with faith, you can’t help but be involved, it takes effort on one’s part to get a larger quantity of it.

“Talk is cheap” they say, I say belief is cheap. This point was well captured in the book of James 2:19, when it says that even the Devil believes that there is one God. To put it differently, belief is to…
