Know that You are Made Whole

It’s hard to remain confident and assured as a Godly woman in today’s self-deprecating world. It’s easy for women to think they don’t look the part, act the part, speak the part or just “fit” in. Being a woman is my greatest blessing. The call on a woman’s life is much greater than we could ever imagine. There is beauty knowing that we were created when God saw Adam had a need.

We were created whole – without a need. God made us whole. Our success, individuality, self-awareness, self-love can’t be bought, borrowed, defined or found in needing someone or things. It requires us to redefine success on our own terms, God’s term – not the world’s standards.

Stop seeking acceptance from the world and seek it from our Creator who saw the need for our purpose.

lots of love,

Walk on Purpose

Are you obediently walking in your purpose?

Are you staying in your lane?

Are you chasing instead of resting?

Are you allowing God to open the doors instead of busting them down?

Are you allowing Him to order your steps so that your light can shine? Psalm 119:113

Job 42:2 says” I know that You can do everything, and that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You”

Reminder: You’re all together Be-YOU-tiful

Are you too focused on your flaws? When you feel down about yourself, take a good look at your accomplishments – big and small – and you’ll realize there is so much to be proud of. All of your features are unique and beautiful in their own way. Love yourself. Love your accomplishments. Love your portion. You are fearfully and wonderfully made! You are beautiful my darling!

lots of love,

I AM

Good Morning!

Did you know that “I AM” is the greatest statement you can use to describe yourself?

Let’s go….. HI! *waves*

I AM Dayna

I AM a Daughter of the King

I AM a daughter

I AM a sister

I AM an aunt

I AM a Dentist

I AM great

I AM intelligent

I AM beautiful

I AM brave

I AM worthy

I AM strong

I AM successful

I AM able

As 2017 is coming to an end I can’t help but ask myself a few questions during my self- reflection:

1. What excuses am I making that’s preventing me from walking into my purpose / calling ?

2. Am I making God the centre of it all?

3. How am I connected to my creator?

4. Am I surrounding myself with the right people?

5. What can and should I be doing to activate my full potential?

One thing I definitely learned this year is that is very important to stay in my lane. You see dear ones, the grass is not always greener on the other side.

I have also learned:

1. That I should not be afraid to ask for help and accept it graciously.

2. It is okay to be super successful

3. It is powerful to be a woman, oh hey Proverbs 31 woman!

4. It is okay to fail and learn from the mistakes I have made good and bad.

With humility and gratitude, we should all aim to be inspired by our own purpose so as to inspire others.

I challenge you to discover your “ I AM”. Your I AM makes you who you are and I would like to think that makes you unique!

So stay in your lane and put death to comparison whilst remembering God is the creator of all and He is always good!

Bless you.

lots of love,

GC
