Own Your Throne

So many times in my career I have doubted myself. I’ve been faced with challenges I never saw coming, took the words “over-thinking” to an entirely new level and almost gave up on the one thing I had sacrificed everything for! Funny isn’t it?

People speak and they try to convince you that what you’re doing isn’t good enough! Someone wise told me – “If it was easy, everyone would be doing it.” Ever since then I ponder on those words every day even at the brink of wanting to throw in the towel. The fight is never easy! And I’m not going to sugar coat anything for you. But don’t give up! If it’s something you want, real bad, you can have it!

I attended Hillsongs Johannesburg on Sunday night and I was so affected by the speaker they had for the night. She spoke so much sense on miracles and how they can happen in our lives at any time we want them to. She spoke about how we need to ask God for the things we want.

It reads in Matthew 6:8

Don’t be like them, for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!

So then why do we need to ask God specifically what we want? When the Bible clearly says that He already knows?

Then it reads in Matthew 7:7-8

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.”

It’s simple! God wants us to ask for it! Just like He did in Mark 10:51

“What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.”

Although Jesus knew that this man was blind, He wanted the man to believe in faith and simply just ask for his miracle.

 This past week has been… Well… I’m not sure they’ve come up with the word yet to describe it… But it was terrible! I sat down with a good friend of mine and needed some of her profound wisdom. She told me something that I probably didn’t want to hear, but needed to hear it. She said, “You aren’t trying hard enough!” And she was right! If I really wanted it like I said I did, I would’ve had it by now. But all the more reason to get out there and prove to myself, over everyone else that I CAN do it, I CAN do all things through Christ who gives me strength and I CAN be whoever and whatever I want to be. I CAN OWN MY THRONE!

  19. I am curious to find out what blog system you happen to be working with?

    I’m having some small security problems with my latest site and I’d like
    to find something more risk-free. Do you have any suggestions?

  20. Heya! I understand this is sort of off-topic but
    I needed to ask. Does operating a well-established website
    like yours take a massive amount work? I am completely
    new to operating a blog but I do write in my journal on a daily basis.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips
    for brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

  21. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a
    little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  22. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this
    topic to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  23. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d certainly donate to this brilliant blog!

    I look forward to brand new updates and will talk about this website with my Facebook group.

    Talk soon!

  24. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought
    this post was good. I don’t know who you are but certainly you’re going to a famous blogger if
    you are not already 😉 Cheers!

  25. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s
    difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.
    I must say you have done a awesome job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me on Opera. Superb Blog!

  26. May I simply say what a comfort to uncover someone that genuinely understands
    what they are discussing over the internet. You certainly know how
    to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    More people need to look at this and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised you’re not more popular given that you certainly possess the gift.

  27. I really like looking through an article that can make people think.
    Also, thanks for allowing for me to comment!

  28. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be
    really something which I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next
    post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  29. The next time I read a blog, Hopefully it doesn’t fail me just as much as this particular
    one. After all, I know it was my choice to read through, nonetheless I truly
    believed you would have something interesting to talk about.

    All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could possibly fix if you weren’t too
    busy seeking attention.
