Hello there, thanks for visiting my blog. So, a bit about me; I'm Natalie and I am a Christian, committed to living by God's Word each and every day. I am a proud mother to three beautiful children and creator of The Accidental Mogul - a blog designed to channel my ambitious juices and unleash the writer within! This blog is a reflection of me, so it contains a little bit of everything. I’ll be documenting my walk with my saviour Jesus Christ, as well as my natural hair journey, I'll be writing thought provoking posts, product reviews, hosting giveaway's and of course offering up a generous dollop of everyday mummy musings. I like to hear uplifting and motivational stories, so I’ll be interviewing inspirational people when I can to encourage and inspire others. Sharing experiences is what makes life beautiful, so let's share.

Friday reflection - week 13



The Lord has been placing this scripture on my heart so much lately. 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.' I wasn't sure where in the Bible it was, so I looked it up and found it in Acts 20:35. Such a powerful book of the Bible, which I must delve into more. Ever since I began to obey this verse and chase what God calls us all to do (give, rather than receive) the blessings in my life have just been pouring down on me. For real.

I give, not because of what I can get out of it, but because I want to have a heart like Jesus. I yearn for it, I long to be like Him. I want to please Him and glorify His name on Earth, so by giving consistently I am able to do just that. It doesn't have to be major or monetary just the smallest of sacrifices can make all the difference to someone's life, maybe it's clothing, or your time, or taking a friend out to lunch, babysitting for a friend, offering a shoulder to cry on, paying for someone's shopping, buying someone a coffee anything that takes the focus off of you consistently and places it on someone else. 

Seriously ever since I've begun to pursue a heart that gives, things have been happening to me that are unexplainable. Here I am a stay at home, more or less single mum and yet I honestly do not go without, and I don't just mean financially, but emotionally and spiritually too. I am so at peace with where God has placed me it's crazy, because from the outside looking in, my situation is faaaaar from perfect. But where God guides, He most surely provides and by me obeying Him and being a blessing to others through giving, God is in turn blessing me and I'm not even seeking the blessing. Oooh weee glory to God! 

My sister actually said to me today: 'Is there something we should know Natalie, because I don't see how you can afford this and that when you have no job. All I could say was 'It's all about the blessing'. It's available to us ALL. I'm telling you God is so faithful. Just trust and Obey and He will take care of your EVERY need. I can hands down testify to that fact!!! Praise Him!
