WE ARE THE IMAGE OF GOD.
Look out for the our conversation when we will be expanding on His Likeness, you don’t want to miss it…
We all have been created by God – intricately and purposefully. We are His special creation – made in His image and likeness with delegated authority over all of the earth. This alone makes us royalty.
When we respect ourselves, it is not esteeming ourselves greater or better but it shows an appreciation of who we are in Christ. Our self-respect will not make us respect others less, because we understand that not respecting others will take away from us our own self-respect.
We respect ourselves by the choices we make, we respect ourselves by what we expose ourselves to, we respect ourselves by understanding that our every action can build or destroy. We respect ourselves when we choose to build – first ourselves and first others.
Somehow misunderstood, self preservation is a virtue of those who have come to understand that they have a mandate to fufill on earth.
Ukuzingca in IsiXhosa is normally a virtue that is associated with purity and self respect yet referring to one’s ability to keep themselves as a treasure. Like the Bible says, what you treasure you keep as sacred.
When you know who you are and your purpose you will not preserve yourself for the sake of it. You will understand that, part of being a treasure is having times of usefulness and you will be able to know those times.
What a great gift that with the earthen treasure we are we can achieve so much
#ZINGCE – you are God’s treasure – His masterpiece.
The most profound statement from the Book of Exodus is found in Exodus 3: 14 – I AM who I AM.
The thing is, God is not confused about who He is; with all the roles He plays in our lives, He is still clear of who He is. And it is in the same spirit that we aught to know who we are.
We are born of God and have been empowered by Him – nothing should make us forget that. Do not let your past dictate what you know of yourself – after all, you are still standing.
#ZAZI ukuba ungubani – Know who YOU ARE!!!
Every woman is a catalyst for any little girl to become the same, to answer the question of what will be the consequences of her name.
Our Ntle is full of energy and verve, she holds her head high because of her open and honest approach to life, the way her humility and compassionate nature is a necessary thing. Her dignity and strength, her pure ESSENCE are the consequences to her name.
With each passing day you bloom with grace and finesse because you share your blessings of love with those around you. Your way of life helps us understand the full extent of your womanhood and love.
We celebrate you today MyLady – Ntle, for your impact driven life.
There is no season with no end, Springtime is coming – My Lady, chin up!
There are times when winter just seems so long and bleak it almost steals our hope, remember it will soon pass.
Our Lady Hlu was born this day a couple of moons ago. We thank God for you and we know there is still much to do as you grow in your area of influence.
May the Lord give you more strength and wisdom so you may touch this generation.
With love, from all of us
