I'm on an amazing walk with Christ and every day he's revealing so much of His truth to me.

I hope you take your time here, feel God speak to you & share your journey with me as well!

Guarding Your Heart - Okizia Beyond: We need to take caution about what we let creep into our hearts. The heart is the window to our soul, what we feel & think & are capable of. It's so important that we monitor what we say, think, listen to, watch and read! Here is Lawrence Fredericks' testimony on how he guards his heart!

How do I know Lawrence? Well, he’s my fiance of course! Joke Jokes. He’s marrying one of my best friends, Aarah Harris (you can check out her blog post here!), so technically, he is my fiance.  I haven’t known Lawrence long but I have been blessed to see Christ working in & with him, especially […]

It's so important that we monitor what we say, think, listen to, watch and read! Here is Aarah Harris' testimony on how she guards her heart!

Guarding Your Heart - Okizia Beyond: We need to take caution about what we let creep into our hearts. The heart is the window to our soul, what we feel & think & are capable of. It's so important that we monitor what we say, think, listen to, watch and read!

When I think of guarding my heart, I think of : filling it up with food that God will bring praise, glory & honor to God and that will make Him proud. not going to certain places/ events because God doesn’t dwell there. refraining from watching certain shows/movies; listening to certain types of music; watching […]

Spiritual Condition of the Heart -Okizia Beyond: It's so important to know what attitudes and emotions dwell within the heart. It's even more important to invite the Holy Spirit in so that we may understand how malicious the heart can be & allow Him to transform our hearts so that we understand what true love, sacrifice, moral living and a life led by Christ.

The heart fascinates me, for in it there is everything and nothing. I think its the window to our soul. That’s where you first feel – heartache, joy, peace, emptiness, frustration, lust, jealousy, self-loathing, anger, abuse, disappointment etc. You hold the memories in the mind but the heart gives life to them. No wonder the […]
