I was in class the other day and as we began to cut our patterns I got this revelation immediately. In my hands I had this fabric that I had just purchased and I had to start cutting out the main pieces that I needed to make a garment and get rid of the bits that were of no use in this garment making process. I pocked this garment with a lot of pins to secure the patten onto the garment and used some chalk to put marks on it so that i get my measurements right. I pressed it with an iron and continued to work on this garment. At first it looked like a mess and so unattractive until I started putting some stitches and attaching the main pieces together, thats when I saw it beginning to take shape. This garment, stitch by stitch was slowly coming together.
This is the same as our lives. We are like beautiful garments in God’s hands. Sometimes we are battered and bruised by the storms of life. We sustain deep cuts, scratches and broken hearts created by those we work with, those dear to us or by other circumstances beyond our control. Sometimes we lose friendships and possessions that are no longer of use in our lives. As we experience all these challenges and learn to overcome them, God is also moulding and shaping us. He prune us and panel beats us and removes things or people in our lives that are not of use to us. His purpose is to leave the main pieces that are of significance in our walk with Him. When we make it to the other side of the storm we realise that we are stronger and wiser than we were before. This is when we are able to reach out and help someone else facing a challenge. Regardless of the challenges we face and the tough times we go through all things work together for good to them that love the Lord. When we keep hope alive and if we are patient enough and we trust the process, we will see that stitch by stitch, step by step things will start to take shape and come together creating a beautiful piece.
My Top pick of the day: Spirulina!!
This has been one of my favourite organic herbal supplements for over a year now. The reason this supplement has made the cut on WednesdayStar is because i see actual benefits and results from taking it. Since i started taking Spirulina over a year ago, my hair has become thicker, fuller and healthier than it used to be. My energy levels have gone up and my skin looks so much Healthier too. Spirulina has a lot of benefits from boosting your immune system, boosting your energy levels, lowers blood pressure, cleanses your system, has some cancer fighting properties, healthier hair and skin and many more.
I normally buy my Spirulina supply from The Health Shop, Health and All, located in Kwame Nkrumah Ave in Harare Zimbabwe. When im not in Zimbabwe i purchase it from Holland and Barret in the UK.
Please do your own research and if required consult you GP for advice before taking this product.
Hi my name is Tsitsi, welcome to my blog. I love Health, Wellness, Spiritual Wellbeing and all things Peaceful. I have always been quite athletic growing up and enjoyed getting involved in all kinds of sporting activities. I always used to lose weight quite quickly but as i grew older i realised that i had to put a little bit more effort in my workout routine than i used to. I had to take extra care when deciding my meals and also found out that i may need a little help from organic supplements lol! Life in my 30’s is no longer the same as life was in my 20’s. In this blog i will be talking about things that i have found useful, the changes i have had to make, how i discovered what my body does’t like and how to pursue a more peaceful and spiritually sound lifestyle.
I have partnered with a good friend of mine Mac Mukadam who owns one of my favourite shops in Zimbabwe, The Health Shop. Mac has been introducing me and my family to amazing organic products that i have found to be of great help as i embark on this journey to live a healthier lifestyle. I will be discussing some of the products i use from The Health Shop and their benefits. Hope you will enjoy this journey with me.
