You may have all the technique and technical stuff down when it comes to Christianity, but are you pursuing for more in God, more in your relationship with Him. Christianity is more than church, it is more than singing a slow song with your hands raised.
God is not interested in the ‘altogether’ part of your life. You know, the neat and tidy areas like the sitting room or parlour that you only let visitors see. He is not interested in the superficial. He is interested in the authenticity of our lives, the messy areas, like that one room or garage in the house with all the junk. If you don’t let Him into the mess, He can’t clear it up.
God dropped what I’ve written below in my heart during my Church’s worship night this evening. I had to quickly write it down messily (see right image lol), knowing that it won’t just encourage me, but it will encourage someone else reading. So here it goes…
God is saying, ‘My Child.
I Am enough for you.
I Am sufficient for you.
I Am the ‘I Am’. Forever in your present and waiting for you in your future.
With Me you have everything.
In Me you have joy, hope and a future.
Fear and worry are not of Me.
Peace is who I Am.
Joy Is who I Am.
Hope Is who I Am.
Love Is who I Am.
Rest In Me. Let My Word be your pillow of comfort and My presence a blanket of peace.
Rest in Me My Child.
You are Mine.
You will have all of Me, if you give Me all of you.
Give Me Your hurt, your fears, your burdens and your mess.
Give it all to Me.
Don’t be afraid to not be perfect. Your perfection comes from Me.
Don’t be afraid not to have it altogether. Your togetherness comes from Me.
In Me, You will live, You will move and you will have your being.
For You Are Mine.’— Kanayo Dike-Oduah
Below is a short 2 minutevideoto complement today’s newsletter! God bless you and I pray that you are encouraged!
Kanayo is a Multi-award winning, Author and Senior leader in education whose experience ranges from being a Deputy Head of Sixth Form, Head of Psychology and Lead Practitioner. Kanayo believes that these 3 elements are the driving force of her ministry and career. D.I.G; Drive, Integrity and Grace.
Having a psychology degree provides me with a broad scope to experience many industries and fields of work. Although, my main aim is to continuously learn and also to share my knowledge and experience with others, within and beyond the constraints of the psychology community. Hence my pursuit to teach!
Hopefully, the readers of this blog will find that it is infested with a scope of psychological knowledge, with the intention of conveying psychology in such a way that it is interesting and understandable to those who aren’t studying it as a discipline. In addition, you will find that I heavily cover various topics aside of psychology such as, Christianity because I am a Christian. I draw both passions together, Psychology and Christianity, observing how they complement and sometimes clash! This blog is where ‘Psychology meets Scripture’.
As well as teaching Psychology, I know God has called me to do something far greater in this world. My passion is for His Word and to encourage others to read the Bible, fall in love with it, but most importantly…fall in love with The Author! My role of teaching is not limited to psychology. I strongly believe God is stirring up the ‘teacher’ office of the Five fold ministry in me.
I’m a doctor by virtue, healing and performing heart surgery with words of encouragement.
I am extremely driven and passionate about getting everyone; both Christians and non-Christians to read, understand and live out the word of God. To achieve this, I’ve created online Bible Challenges, whereby people around the world via social media, read a book in the Bible, one chapter a day and share what they have drawn out from the text. I have numerous Bible challenges, all accessible from my blog (www.doctorkanayo.com) and the YouVersion Bible App where over 250,000 people have completed my devotionals around the world. One Bible Challenge at a time, I aim to change the skewed perceptions of the Bible being irrelevant and to show the true reality that the bible is ‘juicy’, tremendously relevant, fun and easy to read. My one prayer is that my teachings and writings from His word, will touch at least ONE person. That would be a serious mission accomplished to the glory of God!
If you have anything you would like me to blog about, do let me know by either commenting, or contacting me via my contact form.
Thank you for visiting my blog. With love, Kanayo x
