Understanding Purpose as a young lady 3

Hello sweet lady, It's just few hours to the end of year 2019. I want to make sure I end this series this year. Be sure that year 2020 has a lot in stock for us. I am already looking forward๐Ÿ’ƒ.  We have been able to establish from scriptures that every man who is in Christ, is blessed and commissioned of the Lord for this purpose -to be fruitful, to multiply and to replenish the earth. The question is what specific role does a woman has to play in this commission of the Lord. Going back to the beginning, we remember that after God created Adam, He realized that it is not good for him to be alone and then He decided to create a companion for him. Scripture referred to that companion as an ‘helpmeet’. So you see, in the assignment of the Lord to humans, the specific role that the woman has to play is to be a helpmeet for the man, that is to help the man in fulfilling God’s purpose. What of a woman who is not yet married? You can help your future husband in the place of praye

Hello sweet, Christmas in the air ๐Ÿ’ƒ We are back on our purpose series. In case you missed out on part 1, check it  here . GOD’S GENERAL PURPOSE FOR HUMANS There is a general purpose for which God created humans, there is a general purpose for which God created women, and there is a specific purpose why God created you. Today, we will be considering God’s general purpose for humans. Let’s start from the beginning. Gen 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful and, multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. After God created man in His own image, he gave them a mandate and an instruction. This is God’s reason for creating man- so that we can bear fruits and multiply upon the surface of the earth. He also wants us to replenish the earth. What does replenish mean? It means to fill up something again, or to

There was no kissing, pecking..... Temitayo

It's testimony time.... Today on our testimony segment, we have two lovelies. It's a beautiful thing when two lovers of God are in love with one another and they keep the bed undefiled, especially in this generation of ours. Hey lady, can I tell you that despite the rottenness, some people are still pursuing after righteousness. Not everybody is doing that thing!!! Watch this space.... Temitayo and Ibitayo Oso Temitayo : What made me decide for a sexually pure courtship were the teachings from my parents, and the church. I also became born again few weeks before resuming SS 2 class, so I knew sex before marriage was a sin. Ibitayo: I was also brought up in a christian home and became born again at a tender age so we were on the same page about pre-marital sex. Challenges along the line There were really no challenges because we had our rules and boundaries. Practical steps you took For instance, there was no kissing, pecking, wearing of anyth

The Comparison Game- I have been there before!!!

Yes I know we are on the purpose series. But then, I cannot just resist the urge to write this. Waking up at this time of the night, I thought to publicize yesterday's post on social media and something caught my fancy. You think it's something serious right?  Wait a minute, I will explain!!!.  Yeee, I saw the picture of some of my friends, that indicated success in their lives at various levels......ooops....and then I began to think, and to think and to compare. The more I thought, the more I saw reasons to continue thinking and the more whatever success I might have achieved at this time looked like trash to me. I blamed God!!! I blamed others!!! I blamed myself!!!. In fact, I blamed my husband and even my children!!!. Thank God for the Spirit of God who reorders our thoughts back to normal,  I probably would have been crying right now, instead of writing. After all the thinking episodes (I guess he probably allowed me to spend some time thinking, so that I ca

Hi Ladies, So today, I want to start a series on 'Understanding purpose as a young lady'. Would be nice to have a very good knowledge of what purpose means before moving into the new year. My desire is that coming year, each one begins to walk in line with God's purpose for her life. What is Purpose? Purpose means reason. The purpose of a thing is the reason for which that thing has been created. Before a manufacturer embarks on the journey of creating something, there has to be a purpose in his mind, or else his whole efforts will be a waste. God, who is our creator, had a purpose in mind at the point of creation. He had a general purpose for which he created human beings and then he has a specific purpose for which he created you, yes you. Our general purpose is to be a disciple of Christ, and our specific purpose is birthed out of submission to this primary calling. To be a disciple of Christ means to follow Christ. Following someone comes easy out of a de

There were several times my body wanted to indulge in sex-Gabriel

Hello young lady, Nothing is as sweet as having a sexually pure courtship....lol So, Poise has an awesome couple on the segment this day. Gabriel and Damilola are all shades of beauty and admiration, and to crown it all, they had a perfectly pure courtship. Ain't they beautiful? Gabriel is a pharmacist by profession and Damilola is the CEO of Arewa cakes and more. Read this!!! Damilola and Gabriel Adedeji Gabriel All glory to God. All I wanted was just to fear God and to do his will, to be an example to as many who think it is not possible to be sexually pure in a relationship or courtship. I was really determined  that I will never sleep with anyone until after my wedding and God helped me fulfil it.    It was not easy though, there were several temptations but thanks to God, I made it. Damilola Gabriel's testimony is same as mine. Thanks to God, I was mentored by the president of MINE teenagers, PST Timi Adigun, whose calling was to raise teens and yo

How to make God's word your life

Hello sweet lady,  Do you know that the most important thing in the life of a believer is God's word. God's word is the instrument for spiritual growth and the sure way to know and enjoy all our realities in Christ. What does it mean for something to be one's life? 1.  It means you came into being by that thing 2. It means that your existence depends on that thing 3. It means that without that thing, you are dead 4. It means that thing is your support system and you must seriously take care of it All these are exactly what God's word is to a believer. The word is our life!!! Our existence depends on God's word You might be wondering, why is God's word our life? 1. We were born by the word 1st Peter 1:23 You see, God's word is very instrumental in salvation. We got born again after we heard the word. That's why there is need  to preach the word to get people saved. As we move about our daily activities, let's be consc

How to hear God

Hey lady, This is a follow up to the article on knowing God's will that I posted earlier on. My husband wrote something that caught my attention, “the way God will lead you when it comes to marriage is the same way he has been leading you before you get to that juncture in life”. There is this hype about hearing God when it comes to marriage matters, such that someone who has never heard God before on other matters will seek to know God's will concerning marriage.  Babe, before you start wanting to know God's will about who you will marry, have you ever tried to know his will about other life matters? For example, if you are to go out or not to go out, your choice of career, etc. If you have not learnt to perceive God’s will about general life issues, then there's no way you are going to be able to perceive God's will when it comes to marriage. Marriage is a part of our life, and not a special part. So, now is the time to learn dear. Start practicing know

How to know God's will in marriage- Seyi Boluwaji

Hello young lady and teenage girl, So, today I thought to extract some parts of an article on knowing God's will in marriage, written by my husband, yipeeeee. I am very certain that you will enjoy it๐Ÿ˜€. God is the author of marriage and he is the best to consult when it comes to making a choice of a life partner. It is the right of a child of God to recognize and know God's will for them in all areas of life including marriage. Knowing God's will comes from a working knowledge of God that comes from an intimate relationship with God through regular fellowship with the spirit and the word. Many people find it challenging to discern God's will for them in marriage because that's the first time they are consciously making attempt at knowing the specific will of God. This ought not to be so, because being led by the spirit is something that should be the way of life for believers  Romans 8:14 . The way God will lead when it comes to marriage is the same way h
