23 Years Old - Timeline

Happy Birthday to me, happy birth date to my Dad and Mama!! 

Today's post is totally dedicated to Jesus and His wonderful creation....ME!  

Thank you Lord for the beautiful day you have giving me today. 

23 years ago YOU delivered me into this world with so much love! You knew me and planned me way before then, but specially chose this day, 23 years ago to be when I arrive. 

Thank you for my wonderful parents, who have done their best for me. I appreciate them a lot more today then ever before. Their hard working nature and them just being present in my life has been a lot of things! 

Wow!! It is an absolute pleasure, honour and generally overwhelming to be able to call you Father and know that I am Your daughter!!Thank you for pouring out YOUR love into my heart through Your Spirit! 

I love and adore You and I'm so IN love with You, more today than ever before....the more I get to know You, I grow deeper in love with You all over again! Perfection and HOLY- that's You Lord!! 

I lost my life and have chosen to take Your life and to pick up my cross and follow You forever more. Thank You that you have called me and that I heard! I have lost my life and all, so I may know You intimately Jesus. The song of my heart this day and forever more is fixated on YOU!
What can I do for YOU MY LORD?! Thank you Jesusssss!!!!

I'm so grateful for the truth You have bestowed to me! Thank you for replacing every single insecurity and lie I believed and now given me,You! Thank You for BEING my SURE foundation. 

I'm 23, WOW!

Here's a short timeline of where I have come from and where I am today....chapter 23!
Thank God for saving meeeeee from the road of destruction I was walking down!  I'm so o
verwhelmed by His love and going through my old folders has shown me just how much He really has worked on me! 

I am Surrendered [submitted] To Yahweh & Loving Him Eternally. My style/ mode/ fashion...the focus of my heart is Christ and my style is Him/His word perfected in my heart.
I am fashioned by Him and for Him.

The story doesn't end there...but so far so good. Knowing that I am connected to my Maker, just allows me to have a peace like never before. The next pages are already written by Him, so step by step, by His perfect leading and me being obedient, I shall continue to live out every page just as HE has written it. 

Thank you all for the LOVE, messages and comments, I am reading them all and truly ministered to by your kind words.

It's never too late for you to start out on a journey with the Lord, it's not just for some people, it's for all. If you have started and gone astray, don't get stuck, seek Jesus, HE LOVES YOU!

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.
~ Luke 19:10~

O Lord, you have searched me and known me! 
~ Psalms 139:1 ~

The whole of Psalms 139 has been my meditation for over a month and it has transformed my thinking like never before. GET INVOLVED!

Don't wait for your birthday or any other day to love Him, love Him every day.

Key tips for Uni

I'm back to Uni now! Woop, Woop! Last lap and then I graduate from my Marketing Degree. 
The goal is getting closer and closer indeed! I have some really great modules this year so I'm really excited to get started and involved. 

I haven't blogged in a while due to being busy sorting myself out for Uni, Pathway, transitioning from a move and assisting my friend with her wedding plans, as she is getting married this December! I did share at the beginning of this year that I had a few weddings to attend... but I've still had people say to me, 'your always at weddings'...LOL! All I can say is, PRAISE GOD for the focused people in my life, that will to honour God in their relationships! I salute you all!

On another note, I have moved closer to my Uni and I'm living with a LOVELY family. Culturally we are from different backgrounds, but it has been great, getting to know them and also learning some of their dishes. By the time I leave this place, I will definitely have more dishes under my belt. Yay! (I Like me some food!)

This time round I have done things a tad different, rather than blog here, I have done another Video blog. Thank you for all those that have been asking for me to do so and for the encouragement towards it. We're now live, so please do check it out and share.


This is the outfit I wore the other day. 

For those starting Uni..... The Lord really put it on my heart to share some tips that will help your University experience be one you remember for the right reasons. I was so NOT clued up on a few things when I started Uni, and a video like this would have really helped me to do things in the right way, right from the start.  This is going to be my 5th year on this degree and so I have learnt a great deal. I've had the opportunity to apply some things to my life during Uni, that has helped me get right and stay right, so I just wanted to share some key tips with you.

Hope you enjoy. Have a great day and I shall see you at the next post!

OOTD with Amber

Wisdom IS the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all your getting, get understanding.
Proverbs 4:7

Wisdom defined: The insight into the TRUE nature of things. (Vines)

Truth is found in the Word because He is truth. We can all get insight according to how GOD sees things, if we truly desire to have wisdom. We gain understanding as a result of enquiring further by asking questions to see how we can apply the wisdom to our own lives. 

I have access to His wisdom......and so do you. Ask Him!! 

With great Love,

Nash Amber
