For a while I have been in a quandary about life and myself and have been trying to strike a balance between being a woman; being female; being single; being Marcia; and being an Ambassador of Christ. I have had undertones of feeling unworthy of speaking about certain things (in my prayers), and it came to me that, whilst following Christ; whilst renaming and revamping this blog (calling it Relentlessly Unapologetic), I am being relentless by persisting in what I aim to do. My goal is to be on fire for Him, at all times, and to hopefully get others to look within themselves and do the same. We must speak things into existence and realise that life and death is in the power of the tongue. It is by having continuous conversations with my daughter that I am able to allow this to sink in. She won’t allow it and I don’t blame her! Being realistic and transparent, I won’t always be thinking this way but it is my aim to be. Our relationship with The Most High God (and in general) is a process, and one by which we must keep going. Speaking negatively is exactly what You speak into your life if that is what you dwell on and speak about with others. When concerning yourself (or anything), positivity is key. Through it all; through the doubts, noises in my head and all the things against me I am being Relentless and I am Unapologetic about it. The Most High God (with all my failings, weaknesses and everything else) is my first port of call: The Word is the yardstick by which I exist. There is no room for doubt but loads of room for doing what needs to be done.
30 But when he saw [the effects of] the wind, he was frightened, and he began to sink, and he cried out, “Lord, save me!”
31 Immediately Jesus extended His hand and caught him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”
32 And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.Matthew 14:30-32 (AMP)
10 So I am well pleased with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, and with difficulties, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak [in human strength], then I am strong [truly able, truly powerful, truly drawing from God’s strength].2 Corinthians 12:10 (AMP)
I am convinced and confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will [continue to] perfect and complete it until the day of Christ Jesus [the time of His return]Philippians 1:6 (AMP)
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a consecrated nation, a [special] people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies [the wonderful deeds and virtues and perfections] of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.1 Peter 2:9 (AMP)
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing [through the experience of your faith] that by the power of the Holy Spirit you will abound in hope and overflow with confidence in His promises.Romans 15:13 (AMP)
I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose—I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.]Philippians 4:13 (AMP)
Remind Me [of your merits with a thorough report], let us plead and argue our case together;
State your position, that you may be proved right.Isaiah 43:26 (AMP)
28 And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose.
29 For those whom He foreknew [and loved and chose beforehand], He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son [and ultimately share in His complete sanctification], so that He would be the firstborn [the most beloved and honored] among many believers.
30 And those whom He predestined, He also called; and those whom He called, He also justified [declared free of the guilt of sin]; and those whom He justified, He also glorified [raising them to a heavenly dignity].Romans 8:28-30 (AMP)
Through Him, therefore, let us at all times offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, which is the fruit of lips that thankfully acknowledge and confess and glorify His name.Hebrews 13:15 (AMP)
Concerning yourself, what is it that YOU are relentlessly unapologetic about? The time has come when we need to rise up in whatever we have been called to do or be. Is there something that is burning within, that you feel you’re too young, too old, too fat, too thin, too black, not black enough, too white, not white enough, not educated enough…God cares for the whole of us, not just the spirit man. When we step into our particular calling, whatever it may be, He is interested in adapting, building and strengthening, the whole of us. Whatever is your gift, that is what you need to pray about. I have changed the name of my blog and intend to grow into it: Speak things into existence. I suggest you do it too…speak things into existence and step into what will come into fruition; what will be your future and that of those you come in contact with physically or virtually. Take YHWH at His Word.
So will My word be which goes out of My mouth; It will not return to Me void (useless, without result), without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.Isaiah 55:11 (AMP)
I assure you and most solemnly say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea!’ and does not doubt in his heart [in God’s unlimited power], but believes that what he says is going to take place, it will be done for him [in accordance with God’s will].Mark 11:23 (AMP)
Finally, believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart].Philippians 4:8 (AMP)
