“Why not organize the business of living in a big way? Why creep along, as some people do, from one tiny steppingstone to another, instead of striding out boldly? Why be content with poor health, uninteresting work, or restricted conditions, when many other people have already risen above these things? There is a way out of limitation that never fails. It is simple. It calls for no formalities. It requires no money. It is obvious enough when you realize it, but it is strange how many people nevertheless overlook it.
It is this, take God for your partner. If you will really make God your business partner in every department of your life, you will be amazed at the quick and striking results that you will obtain. I have said that this partnership will cost no money, but I did not say it would not cost anything. As a matter of fact it will cost you a great deal, because the price will be your whole life—but it will be worth it.
Of course, if you want God to be your partner, He will have to be the Senior Partner, and you will have to include Him in every corner and every phase of your life. If you are prepared to do this, the result will not be in doubt. Most people would be thrilled to be able to go into partnership with some great industrial or financial magnate; they would feel that their future was assured. But here is a partnership with Infinite Wisdom and Infinite Power awaiting you. Take God for your partner.”
As for me, God is the only shareholder and He has 100% because I know what is His is mine for the taking!!!!
When a new problem presents itself to you, you should immediately know the Truth about it, and then decline to consider it except in the light of Truth.
“To me the butterfly teaches the most wonderful and the most important lesson that we human beings ever have to learn. You all know his story. He is a beautiful butterfly now, but he was not always a butterfly. No, indeed. He began life, and he lived what seemed to him a very, very long time, as a worm—and not a very important kind of worm either—what we call the humble caterpillar. Now the life of a caterpillar is a sadly restricted one, in fact, it could be taken as the very type and symbol of restriction. He lives on a green leaf in the forest, and that is about all he knows. Then one day something happens. The little caterpillar finds certain strange stirrings going on within himself. The old green leaf, for some reason, no longer seems sufficient. He begins to feel dissatisfied. He becomes moody and discontented, but—and this is the vital point—it is a divine discontent. He does not just grumble and complain to the other caterpillars, saying “nature is all wrong.” “I hate this life.” “I can never be anything but a worm.” “I wish that I had never been born.” No, he is discontented, but it is a divine discontent. He feels the need for a bigger, finer, and more interesting life. His instinct tells him that where there is true desire there must be fulfillment because “where there’s a will, there’s a way.” And so the wonderful thing happens. Gradually the worm disappears, and the butterfly emerges, beautiful, graceful, now endowed with wings—and instead of crawling about on a restricted leaf, he soars right above the trees, right above the forest itself—free, unrestricted, free to go where he likes, and see the world, and bask in the sun, and, in fact, be his own True Self—the free and wonderful thing that God intended him to be.”
A friend of mine texted me early Saturday morning inviting me to the David Koma fashion show. I was so excited I mean how could a girl resist such an invitation!! You know me AKA Sandra Clothe’s….lol.
The show was due start a 8 pm on the dot. When we arrived at 7.30 pm there was still queues and queues of people waiting to get in. Well our friend who invited us to the show made us bypass the massive queue…I was thinking oh my days the security is going to stop us in a minute, but they didn’t. Not sure what connections he had but we were taken straight inside, VIP treatment and we had second row seats can you believe it and we didn’t even have a tickets!!! I was thinking to myself gosh I”m highly favored!
While everyone was settling in their seats, I was checking out the room as you do and spotted a few celebs of course, and Donna Wallace accessories editor at Elle Magazine.
The show began 8 pm sharp the model strutting their stuff down the catwalk, the collection was made up of geometric cuts contrasting with vinyl-like discs. Koma’s latex collection brings the “youth quake” of the early 1960s to mind. Following in the footsteps of couturiers Andre Courreges and Pierre Cardin. It was Koma’s quest for revitalization that led him to inject his boxy A line silhouette with circular leather collars, zips that open to reveal cyclical flashes of skin and high space-age necklines in metallic leathers.
Koma’s color pallets of head to-toe black is injected with classic nude that flow into look at me red, space cadet teal mixed in with silver and finished with oil slick midnight blue. These are strong striking colors for a woman who isn’t afraid to mach her clothes to her powerful bold personality.
All in all it was an amazing show check out the the live catwalk show video. let’s hear your feedback.

The greatest Love of all which is the first commandment is “Love the Lord God with all your heart and soul!” The second is “Love your neighbour as yourself” Leviticus 19:18.
You may well be asking who is my neighbour??? well it could be those who are less fortunate than you, the homeless , family, friends, your enemies, yes I said it your ENEMIES, people who have hurt you, people in prison, we should learn to forgive!!
Forgiveness is a big thing. Once you have mastered the art of forgiving you can be free from pain, diseases and stress. Love should conquer all.
Love is more than simply a warm feeling: it is an attitude that reveals action!!
Love is helping when it’s not convenient, by giving when it hurts by devoting energy to others without complaining or fighting back.
This kind of Love is hard to do. That’s why people notice when you do it and know you are empowered by a supernatural force.
You’ve got to remember that God gave the greatest Love of all, his son Christ Jesus who died on the cross, but rose again so we could have life and have it more abundantly.
1 Corinthians 13:1 says: “Love suffers long and is kind, Love does not envy, Love does not parade itself, Love is not puffed up, does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil, does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in truth, bears all things, believes all things, hopes in all thing endures all things.”
The big question is do we hold any of the negative thoughts in our minds?? If so we need to eliminate them ASAP and renew our minds!!! Which is a daily process.
Our society confuses Love and lust, unlike lust, God’s kind of Love is directed outward towards others, not inward towards ourselves. We need to set aside our own desires so that we can give Love without expecting nothing in return.
Be inspired then make necessary changes for 2013!
Remember Genevieve wrote a blog on the Apps for the Mind?
Self Confidence, Faith, Love, Courage, Power. Be encouraged, all these Apps will add value to your life if you are looking for change in 2013.
Well, I decided to take you a bit deeper on the FAITH App. And to Illustrate that, I have the following quote:”Fear knocked on the door, Faith answered and there was no one there!”
Why not download Faith into your minds as an app today!
Hebrews 11:1 tells us that:” Faith is the substance hoped for, the evidence of the things not seen.”
We should not abandon out Faith when we face challenges, trials and persecution. Faith means resting in Christ for what He has already done for us in the past, but it also means trusting Him for what He will do for us in the present and in the future.
Do you remember how you felt when you were very young and your birthday approached? You were excited and anxious. You knew you would certainly receive gifts and other treats. But some things would be a surprise. Birthdays combine assurance and anticipation, and so does our faith!
Faith is the conviction based on past experiences. God’s new and fresh surprises will surely be ours.
Two words to describe Faith: Confidence and Certainty, these two qualities need to be a secured beginning and end point.
The beginning point is believing in God and the end point is believing in his promises, because He is not a man that He should lie, He will do what He says He will do.
Matthew 17:20 states that:” if you have Faith as small as a mustard seed, you can move mountains.” How amazing is that!!
I know sometimes, we get caught up in our daily challenges and obstacles and we do not take a moment to stop and think. And we tell ourselves:” this situation is too big for me to handle”. But is there anything too hard for God?
By Faith, trust in God and let him take total control of the situation. In our minds, it is just easier to panic and get stressed out. Well, decree and declare today that it is not your portion and download the Faith App which can and will move mountains; how easy is that!!
Sometimes we like to take the steering wheel and control our situations. From now on, sit on the passenger’s side, put your seat belt on, chillax and let God take control of the steering wheel.
