March the lovely month where I get to celebrate many birthdays of great leaders including my biological brother. March is the third month according to the calendar used in Uganda and it signifies completion.
Indeed, I thank God that I was able to complete a certain Research project I was working on in March. It was a tough project that forced my macho brains to work harder.
Even with the tight schedule, I was able to read, have my time with God and people.
Here is how March unfolded;
Loving: My natural lovely dreadlocks. They made it easy for me to work in a field very far away from the city without hustle. All I needed was water to keep them hydrated.
Making: More time for God, this is a constant challenge I take on every month. One can never have enough of God. Each time you spend with Him makes one yearn for more. I am also making more time for myself to rest. I recently discovered that I overwork without resting especially when there are many assignments on my table.
Eating: A lot of Irish potatoes. This is my go-to food any time any day and anywhere in all forms. If I ever visit you randomly and you are wondering what to serve me, just do Irish potatoes. I shall be glad.
Drinking: A lot of water specifically cold water. My body is thirsty especially not after the too much coca-cola I had while in the field.
Listening: To Even Now, a song by William McDowell ft. Tasha Cobbs Leonard. This has been used by God to assure me and above all encourage me that All is well. Most times it is on replay as I take my walks or hope onto road trips.
Watching: Lots of music videos, the art and fashion in them also keeps me hooked beyond the sound
Following: God as He spoke percentages to me through the book of Proverbs. On March 1st my friend and I embarked on a journey to study a chapter from Proverbs every day and it was an only God moment for me throughout the month as I received lots of clarity, wisdom, knowledge, encouragement, and instructions. This is a journey I would encourage anyone to take on.
Creating: Lots of content for my blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. I hope to update my LinkedIn account too.
Wanting: To own either an iPhone or a professional Camera. I want to always take good quality photographs for and of myself. A good photograph is key in my world.
Wasting: Time drinking soda because it just makes me thirsty. Dear Lord, give me better options of drinks compatible with my body.
Bookmarking: Quotes, affirmations, and instructions from my devotional.
Hoping: I continue to do the things I love with and for the people I love. I hope I keep spreading my wings so high and wide till the whole world catches on the fire shut up in my bones. The fire of love and courage.
Wondering: Why I do not have an appetite for food of late. I comfortably skip my meals. This needs to stop though. And my food portions have vastly reduced, maybe God is answering a prayer I once made but might have forgotten…😂
Thankful: For my ability to rest. In my world of an ever-thinking brain, it is hard to get me to rest fully. I am the kind who will carry my work laptop to vacation or the beach. Recently, I experienced this while at the beach till I awoke to the fact that I need to rest and rest. I just shut the laptop and ran to sleep in the sand under the sun. This is one of those areas I need to be more intentional about before I find myself reading a book while on a date😂 with some human. So each time I can rest is a work of God surely because in my strength I can work till I drop dead…
Marveling: At the too much love I received from all my close friends. I was able to see all of them physically within a space of one month and that had not happened in a long while. With two of them, we met on a rugby day, the other we spent an evening together, the other attended church service with me, the other passed by home to visit, and the other took me for massage and shared a sumptuous meal. I feel so loved by them.🤗🤗🤗
Noticing: For the very last time that my relationship with food that is not fresh or was left over came to an end. My stomach reacts badly to food that is not fresh thus making it a no-go zone for me. The next time I visit, if it is not fresh and hot food, please do not risk serving me because I shall boldly say no.
Knowing: That the Lord is my Shepherd in all things and I shall not want.
Making a Toast: Life and New beginnings. Life can be both undulating and in the valley, but above all LIFE IS GOOD!
Smelling: Good News this new month of April. Ps: following up on the last stock-taking, I received a new pair of shoes.
Asking God: For more wisdom, direction, and protection as I continue to help people and systems perform better.
Looking forward to: Blooming where I have been planted, celebrating my mother’s upcoming birthday and the launch of TANGERINE 🍊 a project by my friend Bolaji❤️
April is here and as we start a new quarter,
It is my prayer that you be more kind with yourself and keep steadfast on the journey to make your life and that of others better. More grace and strength to you.
Happy new month.
I love you💞💞💞
From me to you;
Find that one thing you are believing God to come through for you and make mention of it to Him.
I am the Lioness Arising
