About Me

Hi. Welcome to my "taboo" blog. My name is Steph, and when I first started this, I was still in my thirties. In 2017, I switch decades! I am a Christian, so underlying everything I do and say is the Word of God, and the foundational truths I have learnt over the years. This doesn't mean I'm perfect - I am human. It just means I recognise I need God's help to live this life and try to live out His way, as best I can. So that's me in a nutshell. Thanks for taking the time to read through my blog, I hope you draw strength, hope or encouragement from what you read.

Difficulties... Watch your mouth!

There is power in the tongue! I'm not being overly profound for a Monday morning - the Bible says it! That in the tongue - ie the words we say - there is power. Words can breath life, encouragement, peace, love or they can be destructive, causing hatred, death, dissension.

There is an element of what you say having an affect over what happens to us - I have heard many people say "Oh I'm tired" only to spend the whole day feeling tired and lethargic, or "Oh poor me." Only to have a victim mentality. Otherwise known as "self-fulfilling prophecies"!!

We are spiritual beings... and words affect the spiritual realm in a way most of us never really understand. But as we are created in the image of God, and God created the word through speaking it into being, then it stands to reason that the same principles are at work on our own lives.

With this in mind, last Thursday I had to renounce some of the things I used to say about becoming a Mumma. I used to speak over my life that I would not be able to conceive,or that I feared I may not be able to conceive. I used to say "if" I become a Mumma... instead of "when" I become a Mumma. It was always at the back of my mind a fear that maybe, I would not become a Mumma for various reasons.

I was always fearful, and used to speak out against having a child in the type of world we are currently living in, and how he or she would cope with the quickening deterioration of morals, values and God's principles today - things are so much harder for young people today than they were when I was a teenager - how much worse will it get before God intervenes... and He will!

I was always concerned of having Bubba at the time of the Lord's return, as I read in the Bible "Woe to pregnant and nursing mothers in those days" But if this is the case, then I will trust my Lord for He knows what is best for me, my body and for Bubba.

So, as I was driving home from work last week, I felt the Holy Spirit leading me to renounce the words I had spoken over the years, and then to rebuke any impact they may have had over my future dreams of becoming a   Mumma. So I did.

I didn't feel any different. I didn't suddenly think "that's it, I am now going to have Bubba!" None of those things. But I felt that what I had done in obedience to what I felt the Lord had requested of me will have a positive impact over my future. God knows exactly what He is doing in mine and Hubby6's life - and He knows the perfect time for Bubba to arrive.
