Let faith Praise.

Do you believe in Him ?
Somehow this lent I am way too adamant to fall in Love with Jesus again without ever falling out of it.

I haven’t fallen out of love ever,
but I did have my faith on shaky grounds for sometime,
I’m no saint to not fall prey to question Him at times.
But overtime all I’ve come to realize is that faith in itself is so utterly relieving, so freeing and so divinely powerful.
No one forces you to be blind and follow traditions and beliefs of others,
just follow your heart through understanding the depth in His Holy word.
And dont let anyone ever make you feel ashamed about your faith.

Faith is smiling when you wake, welcoming the hurdles with a heart full of gratitude and believing that He is making you a way to walk through this overwhelming phase. And lastly acknowledging that He is the door, the key, the way and the destination.

Faith gives you all the courage you need and all the humility you require to enjoy the finest riches of a simple yet extremely blessed gift of life.

Your faith is yours alone. No one can jeopardize that but you.

And also, even when it’s tough to find your way back to him, keep trying, He is always near.

As a child, when I had questions and doubts, I would pray, ask God to talk to me and randomly open the bible, and it always made me happy. My answer was always there in the pages I opened.
Maybe it was the answer I’d wanted someone to confirm/back up or may be it was a refusal -I needed someone to admonish.
But being the reserve self I was, I wouldn’t open up to anyone but God.
Somehow those were the days that I need to go back to.

Keep your life as private as you can and share it with God.

Less chances of being back stabbed and being misunderstood , having the need to explaining yourself unnecessarily or falling prey to gossip.

I’m not asking you to cut off communication and be a loner. No. Be social and kind and generous and happy to be of help. Reach out and be good at being a humane. But dont empty out your emotional riots into the world , it will worsen your anxieties and rip your confidence, rather take them to God, for there’s no greater help than Him, there’s no one more full of wisdom but Him. ASK HIM. ASK HIM WITH FAITH AND FERVOUR. HE ANSWERS. ASK HIM FOR UNDERSTANDING AND WILLPOWER TO ACCEPT HIS PLANS WITH A GRACEFUL HEART.

Find time to pray. MEDIDTATE. And breathe in peace. Feel immense gratitude for what was, what is and what will be.

Praise him even in adversities. HE will reveal His magnificent self to you in sudden, blissful and majestic ways.
He is always there. Right beside you. Reach out and LET HIM .

For when faith talks you let it be made known, it is , but a gift to be able to appreciate the greatest artist of us all, the Holy Creator.
JESUS is shaping you and your life for the greater good.

I HAVE MADE IT MY MISSION TO MAKE MY BIBLE, EVEN MORE COLOURFUL BY HIGHLIGHTING VERSES THAT SPEAK VOLUMES TO ME. By the end of this year I intend to read it thoroughly and completely. And I have never felt such an immensely beautiful desire to accomplish this before . I CAN AND I WILL.

What about you? How are you trying to get to know Him better ? Share your ways of befriending Him with me, So I can be open to learning Him in new and beautiful ways.

Have a blessed week in the Lord.

Thankful!

I am THANKFUL :

for you and for me,

for love and peace and depth in infinity,

for warmth that surrounds me,

for passion that ignites me,

for each day that takes me forward into a morrow,

for happiness that like a firefly soothes my soul,

for Now, for this moment,

for time,

For everything under heaven that’s priceless and mine.

❤

-Leandra. 

Thanking you for being a part of my journey.


THANK YOU 2017. YOU’VE BEEN A GREAT YEAR OF GROWTH FOR ME.

Girl you got the fire.


Oh! I DEFINITELY DO.

😊😊

No I’m not gonna say “keep your head high girl and blah !” Let’s get this straight. 

“GIRL IF YOU REALLY WANT SOMETHING, work your ass off , work so hard, that ‘luck’ is not a word in your diction, your lifestyle is not about fate and good fortune. Earn your life and live it. Slay your way every day, even in baggy clothes and no mascara, because you are YOUR OWN QUEEN . BELIEVE IN YOUR WORTH, that no one can define you , only you can be your own definition. Love yourself so much, that no one can let the fire within die. Make mistakes. Make tons of them. Because that’s how you will learn your way out. Let people talk, jeez just let them, they need the gossip to thrive. Don’t let that bother you. Stress is caused by giving a damn. No one changes you without your consent. Get this right in your blood. NO ONE CHANGES THE ESSENCE OF YOU. NO ONE. You can keep your head all around the world, wrap it in your arms, but so long you are breathing, make sure you nurture kindness to yourself as well as around. Be brave, and determined. It’s okay to feel lost, and not know the tomorrow. Uncertainty is the key cause of anxiety. Everything will be fine. Even if not. No queen backs down. Fight my warrior. Fight and stand tall. Fight and work hard. Fight and make it happen. Chase your dreams, breathe in happiness, create your peace, and learn the art to not give a damn about tons of things that are is unwanted noise in your vibration. VIBRATE HIGH. SPREAD GOOD VIBES. And at the end of the day if you can sleep with a conscious that screams “Girl you did right. And tomorrow will be even more fantastic. Now let’s go relive those crazy dreams.” You are doing it right. 

Hustle love! Hustle. -Leandra

You are a Masterpiece .

This isn’t a spiritual video.. but worth watching..  

Sometimes we have everything.

Everything to live a normal happy life, yet in it all we are unhappy, because we fail to be grateful and at peace with what we have, we want more.

We find fault in us, our surrounding, others, our life , our fate. We are so critical with everything that it is difficult to enjoy the simplest things, to praise God for the minutest things that are essential, yet we fail to acknowledge them- 

our breath, our loved ones, us, a roof, food, our parents, ourselves. 

What we are, where we are, how we are, is exactly what God has planned us to be like and he has planted us where we stand today. 

He is with us. Be grateful for that. 

God only  creates masterpieces, and you and me are as well.

Carpet of wrong turns.

Hidden carpet of wrong turns ,

take me to the skies,

lead me on , beyond the ways

I couldn’t pass by.

Hear me out, oh Wrong turns!

don’t make my life a lie,

I chose you over 

all that life offered without any spite.

You were so tempting and conniving

Oh Wrong turns!

I was Eve , you – the Serpent,

You bit me, you hissed,

even my tears I risked,

I lost a lot, Oh wrong turns !

Your carpet holds the dead remains,

you snatched away, you gnawed at me,

you left me brutally mundane,

I repent though, Oh carpet of wrong turns!

I repent not thinking wise,

but the lessons you gave,

you made me so brave,

I’m starting to believe, I can rise.

Flying through you , oh carpet of wrong turns !

I’m learning to live my life,

And so now when I choose the right,

I remember how you taught me

from wrongs how to reach out into the light,

So hidden carpet of wrong turns,

within me you reside,

take me over and above my fears,

help me build my might in this fight.

——————-

Choices that we think are wrong. Or have wronged us, in some way or the other, aren’t actually wrong .

There is something right in them. Look harder and someday you shall see what I meant.

I have learnt far more better certain amazing things about life deeply through my wrong turns. No , there wasn’t just once I was wrong, I’ve been wrong a great many times, but I’ve learnt something always and made sure to be wise.

But sometimes it’s not about being wise or practical or living how you are expected to, sometimes it’s about intuition, it’s about feeling something right in the moment, these situations may be right for that moment and wrong in all other, but that doesn’t mean , it’s wrong entirely. For the moment it was created, that choice you made was meant to be, whether wrong or right, everything is fated, it is bound to happen, one way or the other, whatever we choose to live with or depart from, essentially is a part of a much bigger beautiful plan by our God.

So dear there, don’t feel disheartened about being wrong, or choosing wrong , stop feeling disappointed, repent though, work hard to forgive yourself and seek forgiveness where needed, work harder to understand the depths of the lessons hidden in this carpet of wrong turns.

As humans it is pretty normal for us to fall prey to it, don’t be too hard on yourself though, 

learn to let go of this carpet when it’s time, 

learn to heal, 

learn to feel that things happen and life stops for no one. 

Move dear, move forward, 

move into the light that awaits , 

whether right or wrong, you will find a way. 

Stay hopeful. Stay blest.

Much love. 

Dear Future Husband #15

 Honey….

Yesterday was a rough day.

I wonder how was yours.

Yesterday I had not many words to fill a blank page, was way too drained and sad . And I wanted something nice to say.

I did hope this #illustration of us that was done yesterday, speaks to you someday.

Hahah! Please don’t mind me looking elsewhere & not at you😉😊…..

I love dancing, mostly ball room, and usually my bro is my perfect partner, but the times he’s not around, I miss dancing, so I avoid parties, maybe one of those possible places fate could help us meet. 

But since I’m gonna be sticking to my chair even when there’s crazy music, I don’t turn up to such parties.

Apart from dancing, my well wisher pointed out that it would be so wonderful to actually meet you someday and realize that you have indeed read all of my letters all along. 

But that’s just wishful thinking or would that be a wonderful possibility?

I know I will meet you love, even if this wait will be months or years, but when we are destined by the Almighty we shall meet.

It scares me you know, this dating thing, because I don’t want to invest in someone who’s not you. 

Because there’s alot at stake. Emotions, feelings, time, understanding, patience, compromise, sacrifices, prayers….. and so on.

I want to invest all that in you. Someday, when we click, and if you ask for my heart, I will gladly give it to you, because by then , I’ll know, you’ll be the key to help me rebuild and become even more of a woman who belongs to herself first.

The pressures of the society or even family, at times , makes me feel weird, will I be forced to choose ? And if I do, will that be you ?

How will I ever know , love ? There are so many doubts, so many fears.

I’ve been raised by such amazing parents who have never once fallen out of love, their love is the very strength that binds our family together.

Will our love be the ship on which we shall proudly sail towards eternities ?

They say the soul knows who it wants ? And since you shall be my soulmate someday, will your soul recognize mine ?

I wonder love. I only can wonder.

I leave my worries about you in the hands of our match maker.

For he knows, who’s heart I can cherish and who can treasure mine.

I hope and pray dearly beloved, that you are having the most amazing time of your life. May you think of me, as I think of you. 

Haven’t met, yet to meet. Isn’t that a beautiful mysterious  fact of our lives ?

I will wait, my love. I don’t urge you or God to let you come soon. I pray that when you turn up, I am ready to accept you and welcome you, from that day on for forever thereafter.

Stay blest. Stay safe for me. 

For He knows our time will be in His time.

Until next letter,

And until God plans our eternity,

Your favorite dancing partner to be,

Your love.

Dear Future Husband #14

Hey love,

I was chatting with my friend, and she’s like where do I get these words from ? 

Words that I write for you …

Guess what I said ?

Romance hasn’t died in me , even though I’m happily single in the season of waiting . But it might just get over, since I’m pouring it all over here, so probably when you do turn up, my quota of romance might need some serious restocking. 😉

On a good note, I’m being formal I know, but it sounds crazier this way, haughty english style, I’ve been thinking. 

And me & thinking get along too damn well, and  totally out of proportion. 

When we do fall for each other, and we keep falling every day, more and more in love, I will be there to hold you, your hand, and squeeze it in reassurance when you need a boost if confidence. Love, I do not want to be your weakness, but if I am, then I’ll be honoured, but I will be proud to be your strength, and I hope we learn to be this rock of strength for each other.

I don’t see love just like strolling down the beach, getting all steamy and flirty and teasing and being totally love sick, but I see us being able to talk to each other, without the need to look at our phones every minute we are together, without the need of trying to hunt for topics to get rid of awkward silences, without the need of trying so hard to explain so either of us would understand, I see us smiling in comfortable silence, not needing too many words to understand , and respecting each other’s presence.

I know that relationships need work, and it’s not always a dream that would weave a web of magic in reality . We shall face all sorts of situations, where we might need to take decisions that might not sit well with either of us, I might be for it but you might not be and so on. 

But I want you to know , I will hold no grudge. I do not want regrets, but I will not stop you from chasing your dreams or building them, I will help you and encourage you and pray with you. But if it is something wrong for you, I will speak my mind aloud and let you know why.

I will expect the same from you love, correct me when I’m wrong. 

As much as a passion filled romance is thrilling and lovely, I know we will have ours too. But I would want ours to be such that would make some sigh and bless us, and not want to puke and tell us to stop.

You might even get a few letters from me, time and again once we do be with each other, but I assure you , I’m not gonna be the one to bombard my feed and yours with stories of Tom, Dick and Harry that spy on every moment of our life.

Here’s a scene I imagine, because I do see it happen to my parents quite often, they are still very possessive about each other, so there’s like a party we attend, and we are ignorant of the vibes we each give away. You trying to signal that I’m yours and me trying to ward off the attention you get by staking my claim , grabbing your hand, or even gnawing at it. 

Hahaha… It will be funny. Don’t you think ?

I will be a wee bit possessive of you and there will be times I might face jealousy, but I want you to know, that it will not be to cause you irritation, but to only try to soothe my endangered heart. Whilst I hope you will make me believe that we belong, like we are a match made in heaven, I would love to feel all that a journey with you will bring our way.

And from jealousy, to clashing thoughts, to decisions we dont agree together on, may we someday learn to love in our individual spirits to respect the space of each other, and accept at heart that no matter how different we may think or believe, we will live in harmony of our differences and imperfections.

Much love my dearest.

I pray My God takes good care of you,

Until He decides it’s  time for us to meet,

Your future rambling bride.
