1. I am on my way to Lesotho for work. Yay, I got a job!!!! And its not a little job either, its a big job and I have been praying for God to make me sufficient, adequate or just know what I am doing and get it right. And I have been saying 'God make me enough, Make me do well, Make me know'....and today I got a call from the Spirit...'When will you accept that He has made you enough? When will you believe it?' So I have resolved to walk in the blessing now and I am good enough for this job. I can do it in Jesus' name!
2. I was a little sad that I was leaving a lot of my family and "potentials' behind but as it turns out (I got this news about 15 minutes ago after I had written point one) otherwise this post would have been an entirely different post)...I am now only starting on the 4th so I have time to fix and say my goodbyes properly and get my edumacation sorted. God has given me more time!!!! Yay! ''His mercies are new every morning....."
3. I am so relieved that my days here have been increased and now to use them wisely....
4. And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him. And Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to Him, “Yes, Lord.” Then He touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith let it be to you.” And their eyes were opened.
Matthew 8:28-30
This verse here enlightened me when I read it 2 days ago...because I could hear God asking me the same question about a lot of the issues that concerned me about my travel arrangements and my ability to do my job, and 'It' and I kept saying Mwari ndigonesei (Lord, make me able). And of course Jesus asks me the same question He asks the blind men: Do I believe that He can do this???? And I say: Yes Lord and He says: According to your faith let it be to you, Tendayi. Okay, I got a little freaked out by  this because these men had faith that they would see and they saw. Now here comes Tendi with half-measure faith (sometimes) and I thought if I had been one of those dudes and it had been done according to the faith I have at those times, I would have had only one eye opened...so cheers to growing faith that GOD IS ABLE to do ALL things!!!!! Clearly He is, He got my contract amended, a job to start off with, a masters, a man...and all the other different testimonies I have shared. And I am going to experience the fullness of this blessing because I am saying goodbye again to  'half-measure faith'....because I want both eyes opened too!!!! 
5. 23.12.2010. I leave on Monday for Zimbabwe then I proceed to Lesotho in the new year. This week has been about sleeping-in, family, friends, dinner, calls to and fro, karaoke, air-hockey, movies, shopping. There is so little time but I am so grateful for the time I have. My God is goodo!

“Son, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you.” Matthew 9:2b
Among other things, be joyful and grateful that your sins are forgiven. If you think you have run out of reasons to celebrate today: no reason to stand up and yell praises; nor get out of bed with a spring to your step; no particular day to just smile at a friend, a workmate and even your children, please BE reminded that 
Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed,
      Because His compassions fail not.
       They are new every morning;
Lamentations 3:22-23 
Today you have the opportunity to sow that same seed of  forgiveness into someone else' life. The gift of "non-condemnation" for anything they have committed against you/themselves. People always need to be reminded not to beat themselves up over something they have done because Jesus says  
Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more 
John 8.11
Before you say it is not in your capacity to forgive and God will be the judge what what what, I am not saying pass judgment then render forgiveness. I am saying be quick to forgive and to speak about forgiveness to one another for Jesus said to his disciples
Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. 
Matthew 18.18 
Give someone else a reason to be of good cheer today so we can all be on the road to a Merry and Joyful Christmas/Lifetime! 
Afterthought: Santa doesn't give this gift at all. He expects you to be good all year round but the basis of our relationship with the Father of Christ is that we are imperfect and sinners. It is only by the sacrifice of His Son that we are made righteous and can stand in His presence and have our sins forgiven etc etc....oh I am of good cheer today!!!! cue Praise the Lord, let the earth hear His voice, Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord, Let the people rejoice.......


Light at the END-of-the-Tunnel?

I had this revelation today early in the morning. It was hounding me and I kept thinking what is the purpose of it all? I am not going through anything particularly hard that this should pop into my mind...
1. Do you believe Jesus Christ is your Lord and Saviour? Yes
2. Have you received the Holy Spirit? Do you believe the Holy Spirit is within you?Yes
Then there is no light at the end of the tunnel because the light is within you! You are the light in the tunnel. In fact....
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. 
Matthew 5.14-16
 Sure enough about 9 hours later, I found myself battling a vision I had: not fully understanding how it could possibly come to fruition when things seemed like they were moving sooooo slowly. I spoke to a friend, tried to speak to my sisters, got on a chocolate/sweet-popcorn high but could not shake the feeling off until I prayed. I prayed for this 'one thing' that was on my mind. I expressed my gratitude for 'It'. And returned 'It' to the Lord's hands. Then I 'podcasted' some sermons because faith comes from hearing of the Word right and God knows I needed my faith restored/renewed/increased. Something someone said reminded me of this verse that had come to me in the morning. I am the light even when I am in my circumstance...I need to keep shining while I am in the tunnel. Trudging pitifully along is not an option. Being shaken and stirred should not blow my flame out. Doubt and uncertainty are no replacement for a sound mind! I am in a tunnel and I am the light. When I reach the end, the vision will be fulfilled and I will still be the light. So I have learned that some lessons may not appear relevant early in the morn but the Lord always equips me to fight these mind games way before the battle. 


None of the Below and All from Above

Genesis 1.27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them;  male and female he created them. I would like to solemnly declare that the Maya Angelou Phenomenal Woman poem is not a representation of me anymore. Maybe it's what got her through and these verses apply to her life. I now know that not every line in a poem written by a famous poet will be relevant to me even if the words move me blah blah (empathy and compassion=wonderful attributes). But since these words are not written  about me, there is no need to recite these words over and over till they become an anthem because I am burdening myself with untruths about myself. Many times I have read it and thought ooooh yes that's me 'not cute but I still got it" but you know what I am made in God's image! His hand knitted me ~ I am more than cute! What you think is a 'secret' really isn't...it's the God-in-me (available from the Holy Spirit within you which is absolutely free). It is not the arch in my back etc etc. Frankly, whether men fall to their knees or not when I enter a room is not my prerogative ~I want one man to be moved by my presence and instead of falling to his knees in adoration of me, I would prefer he got on his knees in gratitude to God (for me and all his other blessings. Prov 18.22~he who finds a wife finds a good thing not he who sees hot chicks in the street/twitter avatars and is captured by their beauty and must try to get their number/attention at all costs has found a good thing--->NOPE). There will be no trying to touch my 'inner mystery' here but if anyone wants some real mysteries~ the Holy Bible has 66 chapters of them. I love the vessel/temple I inhabit but now I know that even if I possess all these features, physical characteristics that women do anyway...I am not phenomenal because of them. I am phenomenal because I am the daughter of a King! Neither am I the the rose that grew from the concrete (sorry Tupac), I am the woman who is growing from His Word! 



Proverbs 6:2 ...you are snared by the words of your own mouth; you are taken by the words of your mouth...


Joel 2:23-27

Does this say something to anyone else? It really humbled me to know how much work God has put in my life and still He insists on blessing me with more (the latter and the former rain)! And what I reap will be overflowing..and to top it all off He will restore the years I have wasted (eaten by locusts), where I was given to under-performance and all sorts of foolishness that kept me from Him. Today I am satisfied, I praise God, and I will never be put to shame. Amen!

Joel 2:23-27

Be glad then, you children of Zion,
 And rejoice in the LORD your God;
      For He has given you the former rain faithfully,
      And He will cause the rain to come down for you—
      The former rain,
      And the latter rain in the first month.
       The threshing floors shall be full of wheat,
      And the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil.
        “ So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten,
      The crawling locust,
      The consuming locust,
      And the chewing locust,
      My great army which I sent among you.
       You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied,
      And praise the name of the LORD your God,
      Who has dealt wondrously with you;
      And My people shall never be put to shame.
       Then you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel:
      I am the LORD your God
      And there is no other.
      My people shall never be put to shame.
