For your glory, be lifted high

I got home and I was reminded of this song.
Be lifted high, for Your glory be lifted high!
I sat in awe of God, how he has transformed my life. The Lord turned my mess into a message, turned my trials into a testimony- I never imagined the platforms I would be given to share his love, to share the hope I carry.
Everyone matters to the Lord, everyone carries a purpose and a plan that the Lord has placed in their hearts for humanity.

We carry answers and solutions for our generation, each and everyone of us is born for a time – unfortunately the rise of “self”, the rise of pride, the rise of narcissism has hidden that solution. When we become inward focused we nullify the existence of others, we go into self-preservation and self-sustaining mode and stop living out the greater purpose that we carry.

I asked Jesus once, what am I living for, the answer he gave me was simple but profound- you living for my glory Fezile. You are living so that I may be lifted high as you continue to focus on me, you are living so that I may be known through out the world that you live in so that they may know that unconditional love exists, that there is a hope that never diminishes…you are living so that I may be known through you. You are living for my glory. It’s all to bring me glory.
So, once the Lord answered me, I stopped focusing on my ambitions, my own plans and said, where you lead- I will follow.

I am in God’s plan, I am in His purpose and I am living for his glory.

When I die one day, I want to be remembered for the hope I brought, for the love I shared and for the light I shone. I love Jesus, he has transformed my life. I wanna be known for that!

Lord, I need you

This week fear has been gripping my heart, I am making a major decision in my life and at times I get so scared, I literally feel like I am unanchored-at times I feel like I am about to sink. I have never done anything like this before but I remember the Word spoken over me-to trust the Lord in all things.

Friends, trusting God feels like walking on water every single time, it’s scary, there’s nothing that holds you in the flesh-you have to be completely and utterly surrendered to His will and purpose.

I am someone who needs a plan A right down to Z and currently my plan is God. Fear grips me because I don’t think I have ever depended on God in such a manner. For the first time I totally understand what Peter felt when he walked on water-I totally understand how he lost sight and nearly sunk-he must have kept thinking: I have never done anything like this before, is this really me walking on actual water?!

The thing is that God always prepares us for our Elisha moments, whereby we have to forsake all that we knew and follow him and trust in Him to take us to a safe and better place.

The journey has challenges, the journey has many trials and stumbling blocks-but the promise is that He is with me and he will never forsake me.

My spirit says : Fez, be still, have peace-walk in the joy set before you.

My flesh says: you will fail, surrender now whilst you have time, turn back, you are making a mistake.

How am I sane in all this warring in my mind you might ask

Jesus has never and will never let me down. That is literally all I pray: “Father, I need you! Father-you promised me you would answer when I call, Father-you remain faithful and you have the BEST plan for my life.”

Guys, I am a testimony, my life is a testimony , I am a living sacrifice forever at the altar of the Lord. I have been tested and tried and I know its supposed to be like that so that when Jesus returns I am as white as snow! This is part of my ministry and I am carrying good things-my future looks bright, though things seem a bit dusky right now-but my God will never put me to shame!

My God is faithful!

I carry God’s favour

I am Fezile, the beloved of the Lord God almighty!

Peace, all is well

Quick update

I really wanna share with you about what’s been happening in my life, I wanna open up – but I’m just now ready.

I experienced quite alot – good and bad and I’m still plagued by unresolved issues.

I miss writing, and I wish I could write about more light – hearted things but personally, I struggle, it’s not my style.

God is healing my heart. I lost friends that were like family so I’m dealing with that-I’ll probably write a post about that – it’s like an open wound, some days better than others but you realise why things had to be the way they were. Why you probably might never be friends again.

I’m going through a career change, had a baby, becoming more self – aware, traveled, studying in between and trying to be an awesome wife!

I’m in a fuzzy space, I floated a bit last year, but I believe I’m now anchored.

I’m really excited about the new phase of my life. It’s a leap of faith but really really exciting, I believe the Fez I believed in, the Fez I prayed to become is back.

Eagles don’t just fly, they soar! 👌🏽

Blessings friends

This is a flaky post, but oh so necessary!

Ok, normally I write these deep posts about life and purpose – but today I thought why not let you in on some of my less intense moments like ice cream!!!!!

Hubby and I were literally having a debate about ice-creams and for me currently it’s tin roof from Woolies.

This isn’t a review, it’s literally me sharing a piece of heaven with you. Writing this has gotten me so happy cause I’m imagining myself eating it and how excited it makes me feel. Mind you, there is some in the freezer but I’d much rather share the experience with you.

Firstly it’s like a fantasy in your mouth – the ice cream isn’t too hard, it’s not too sugary. Then they add chocolate sauce and the surprise is the almonds. Guys, I love almonds so too me honestly it’s perfection really.

Yes, I’ve eaten Häagen-Dazs, but for my palate currently (please note the currently) it’s tin roof for me.

Have a try and let me know what you think, otherwise, please share your favorite ice cream and who knows – it might just end up being my current fave.

No, it has to STOP!

So saddened to post up such a gut-wrenching post like this, but the sad reality friends is that women are continuing to die senselessly at the hands of the very same men who profess to love them. Doing my part to create awareness that no one deserves to be beaten, no one deserves to die all in the name of ‘love’. It has to STOP!

You’ve Never Failed Me!

What do you do when you don’t see God’s faithfulness, when you feel lost ,hopeless and discouraged?

What do you do when all you know is the dryness of the desert-the sand in your mouth and the harsh conditions beating against you daily?

The Lord says call unto me and I will answer-but what happens when the dephts of your soul are crying out and the wells of your tears have run dry and all you can do is raise your hands and hope that the Lord hears you at that point?

I normally have answers for quite alot of things; I normally have a testimony I can tell you about approaching the above mentioned scenario-but sometimes God honestly places you in conditions that’ll feel like you are about to die; He doesn’t do this to kill us-but He does this so we grow and depend on Him daily.

At times I feel like my insides are bursting and groaning to just have the Lord touch me-to just hear his reassuring words-to just feel his embrace, but at times God will remove the tangible aspects of  Himself so that we trust in His Word-in His promise.

I don’t believe our Father watches us whilst we are in pain and continues doing His own thing-it’s not in His nature! The enemy has a way of capitalising on our most vulnerable moments to make it seem as if God doesn’t care-but that’s not true; as deep cries out to deep the Lord is right there ,He may not be responding the way we expect Him to -but He’s still there, He’s watching over us. He’s Listening intently on my prayers. He’s encouraging me to move forward.

As a Christian there’s no formula to living this life-trials and challenges are ever present in our lives but the promise we have is that God remains faithful-even when we aren’t-He remains faithful!

Like I said-currently I don’t have the answers to the scenario I painted earlier but what I do know is that Jesus loves us with an inexplicable and indescribable kind of love and His nature – his very character is that He is faithful.

For now that’s all I have  and that’s the encouragement I can give you pertaining the situation you find yourself in.

God is faithful.

The song below encouraged and ministered to me so deeply-I am hoping it does the same for you

Be blessed my friend.
