Inner strength vs. Outward appearance..

God bless you, today I’m going to write you out of the topic “My inner strength vs. My outward appearance. Actually it is the story of Samson and Delilah that is being told in Judges 16: 1-22, 28-30. This topic has been on my heart since the year 2015 (in which my mother past away). I remember asking her to do a sermon together on this but her physical strength was not enough. Though she was tired she was constantly praying for me. I caught her one time in her final days calling, I thought she was calling for me, but when the morphine had worn out she could say some extra words and she would say, I’m praying for you because you are going to be alone. Though she was looking tired on the outside her inner strength kept her.

In the text of Judges 16 we can read about Samson. Some facts about Samson;

  • he was a Nazarite (Numbers 6) meaning he was separated from birth to do the work of the Lord. / Judges 13:7
  • he needed to abstain from wine grapes, with every production of the vine and from every kind of intoxicating drink (vinegar). Numbers 6:3-4 / Judges 13:4
  • during the entire period of their Nazirite vow, no razor may be used on their head. They must be holy until the period of their dedication to the Lord is over; they must let their hair grow long. Numbers 6:5 / Judges 13:5
  • he was forbidden to approach any dead body, even that of his nearest relation Numbers 6:6
  • he had an weakness for woman –> Delilah

Delilah was an asset of the Philistines rulers, she had to see if she can lure Samson into showing her the secret of his great strength and how they could overpower him so they may tie him up and subdue him. Each one of the Philistines rulers would give her eleven hundred shekels of silver. (Judges 16:5)

You see you need to know your weakness to abstain from it, walk away. If you know certain people are not good for you (intoxicating), don’t stay and try to work them. Before you know it they will be controlling you as for in the story of Samson and Delilah.

Four times Delilah asked him how he could be subdued. For the first three times she tested him and proved that he was not telling the truth. But as for Samson he could have been wiser in walking away after the first three times after being tested in what he answered Delilah but he had stayed.

  • First time: Judges 16: 6-7
  • Second time: Judges 16: 10-11
  • Third time: Judges 16: 12-13
  • Fourth time: Judges 16: 15-18

Often we find ourself in the same spot as Samson, we stay try to work it and after a while we are so worn out of our strength, we are just drained by a toxic relationship. The fourth time Samson poured his heart out, and told Delilah everything. Delilah manipulate him by using the following words “How can you say, ‘I love you,’ when you won’t confide in me?” 

After confiding Delilah the secret of his heart Delilah put him to sleep on her lap, she called for someone to shave off the seven braids of his hair, and so began to subdue him. And his strength left him. If you don’t walk away before you know it your are being controlled. Than the text continues in vs. 20-21

20 Then she called, “Samson, the Philistines are upon you!” He awoke from his sleep and thought, “I’ll go out as before and shake myself free.” But he did not know that the Lord had left him. 21 Then the Philistines seized him, gouged out his eyes and took him down to Gaza. Binding him with bronze shackles, they set him to grinding grain in the prison.

Samson is now being taken as prisoner, but here comes the good part. In verse 22 the bible says that the hair on his head began to grow again after it had been shaved. There is a very familiar text in the bible that says let the weak say that they are strong. In his weakness Samson became strong, as his hair was growing back on. Samson prayed to God in vs.28 and asked God to renew his strength, just once more, and to let him with one blow get revenge on the Philistines for his two eyes. And the Lord heard his prayers.

A years ago almost a year and a half I walked away from a toxic relationship, it cost me twice the strength to pull it. I say twice the strength because I tried leaving once before with no success but words kept me longer than intended.. I knew staying wasn’t going to please God, it was not good for my marriage, it wasn’t good for my family, so I decided that I was just going to walk away from it without looking back on what it could be. I shared part of this story in an earlier post (2016) around the time of my divorce trial. But God is faithful, He has mend me and my husband together, the relationship that used to be is now stronger than before with a three strands cord. (Ecclesiastes 4:12) For this testimony read: https://shainadomitilia.wordpress.com/2016/08/22/rebuilding-is-a-process


The text ends saying in verse 30 “ Samson said, “Let me die with the Philistines!” Then he pushed with all his might, and down came the temple on the rulers and all the people in it. Thus he killed many more when he died than while he lived.”

He killed more Philistines than while he lived. In these days we need to set our own desires aside, we need to submit and seek the Lord for new direction in our lives. Our fleshly side has to die so we can be resurrected with Jesus as He was resurrected from the dead after dying for our sins.

I hope this writing blessed you as it did me.

Soup for succes

Hey there God bless you. It’s a month ago since I wrote to you. As we are at the mid of the week and God pored His wisdom into me I’ll like to share with you as well. It is a small bible study teaching. I hope you will be blessed by it. Main scripture is 1 Corinthians 16:13 (additional  Joshua 1:7-9)

4 Ingredients to achieve success


1. Be on your guard:

Every challenge/ situation you walk in needs preparation. You need orientation, knowledge and tactics for approach. You need to know if it is a God assigned mission before you walk in and make certain that it’s not a trap and misguidance of satan. (1 Peter 5:8)

2. Stand firm in faith: 

The bible says that faith without works is dead. (James 2:14-26). You need to have faith that it all will work out for good for you that believes.

3. Be courages:

Courage is the opposite of fear. Fear paralyses you, it keeps you from making steps forward and to face the challenge or to approach the situation. As we know the bible says that God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7)

Last but not least;

4. Be strong: You need to be strong physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally.

4.1 Physically: You need a good condition otherwise your constantly tired. When your tired faith runs out.

4.2 Mentally: You need enough rest so you can be in balance. Everything in life needs to be balanced. If you don’t have enough rest you will get weary and eventually have a burn out.

4.3 Spiritually: Always stay connected to the power source; God. You need to have that prayer life going (pray without ceasing). You need to have your worship going, you need to read the word as He poor wisdom into you. You need to put his word in practice. And you sure needs to be still sometimes to hear from Him.

4.4 Emotionally: Know that God is Jehova Rapha, your Healer. He can mend your wounds. Be of sound mind and have dominion over yourself that when you speak, you check first that it is your sound mind that is speaking and not your emotions. Never react out of emotion. Use wisdom.

Be blessed. With loving regards,


Church is not a trend!

God bless you, last week I didn’t write to you cause I was in a deal with God where He was sharing His heart with me and I didn’t want to write to you until I got everything I need to write you about. I will jump right to it. I have to give you the heads up that it may probably get ugly but in obedience towards God I will write it anyways. Main scripture Psalms 84 (I will quote some other Psalms scriptures)

Here is the deal; Church is not a trend. It is not all about getting dressed, having your hair done so you can come to a fashion show to see who is better clothed or what car one is driving in. Church is about surrendering our ego and will and submitting to the plan and purpose of God!!


Church isn’t an convention centre where big events take place. There is no time to think whether you feel like coming to church or not. You need and want to be in church, beside needing to be there you need and want to be involved in God’s business. Not only you come because you need something from but you come cause you are in need of God. You realise that without Him you wouldn’t made it this far. If it was not been for God where would you be today. Serving God isn’t a burden it’s not a obligation you have the free will to choose to serve Him, You serve God cause you want it and is your deepest desire that He get all the glory and honour that belongs to Him.

Church isn’t a theatre where you come and you need to be still cause the show is running. It is a place where you come to give God praise and glory for all that He has done. Sunday is all about God and giving Him the glory. You have the whole week to ask for things, Sunday is a day of thanksgiving and to give back unto Him. He says come into my courts with thanksgiving in your heart. If you don’t want to praise, He don’t need you, He can make the stones to so. But He says let everything that has breath praise the Lord Psalms 150:6. So when you come to church nobody needs to say to praise Him. There needs to be rivers of living water that will flow from within you, cause you believe in Him. Nobody needs to tell you clap your hands and give Him a shout of praise, isn’t that why you came to give Him all that He deserves.


It is so that if you need prayer the elders will pray for you but when it is prayer time in the sanctuary it cannot be so that you are to weary that you can’t uplift a prayer. The bible says pray without ceasing. Don’t get tired of praying. Your problems are not bigger than God. Every tongue needs to confess that He is God and every knee shall bow before Him. You see when you confess God out loud, you are letting the devil and your situation know that what seems impossible for you is possible for God. You are letting the devil and your situation know, that If God is on your side no one can stop you of glorifying and praising His name. There is no other name than the Name of Jesus. Stop looking around and wasting time and start proclaiming things over you life, your family, your church…

Start thanking God for His grace, mercy His everlasting love, for the blessings that he gave unto you. Pray for the needy, bless one and other. Let everything you do it’s out of love. Cause you can do good but if the love of and for God don’t habit in you it’s in vain.

Church is not a playing ground. When it comes to God and His business things are serious we need to help build the Kingdom, make leaders, winning souls. It can’t be so that we come in and out the church and still be acting as babies. We need to grow spiritually and be mature in the things of God. We cannot keep doing the same stuff we used to do. You need to be the light and salt of the earth. Make a difference. Start at home.



Psalms 84

If you take the first verse; “How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty!” David wasn’t burdened at all to be in the house of the Lord. He loved to be there, He wanted to be there. He said; “How lovely..” can you say it is lovely to be in the house of the Lord. Or are you so consumed by your own agenda that if it not fit you will skip a sunday?

2 My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lordmy heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.” This is a deep longing for God. He is thirsty for more of God. He is in need of God. He is not the because he needs something of God, but because he is in need of the living God.

3 Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young— a place near your altar, Lord Almighty, my King and my God.” You see if God can take care of the birds, how much more can He do for you, aren’t you more important?

4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you.” You are blessed when you seek God, You are blessed when you praise Him for ever. Proclaiming that He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. The everlasting God, the Creator of heaven and earth and all that is within.

Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.”  You are blessed when you recognise that is not you but God through you. His strength has kept you this far and is keeping you going. You are blessed when you keep His word in your heart. Whatever you obstacle, situation, period you may find yourself in, His strength and word is keeping you on the move.

6. As they pass through the Valley of Baka, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools.” Listen problems doesn’t last for ever. Those who sow with tears will reap with joy. For joy comes in the morning. (Valley of Baka means valley of tears)

7. They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.” While you keep moving forward on the path God has put you on, battling whatever life throws at you, you will see His mighty hands that moves you from strength to strength. It is His power that you kept for His glory.

8. Hear my prayer, Lord God Almighty; listen to me, God of Jacob.” And when you pray He will listen cause you are following His directions. Do not harden your heart when the word of the Lord comes to you. Cause it is out of love that He rebukes you.

9. Look on our shield,[e] O God; look with favor on your anointed one.”  God’s shield you, He protects you and you will find favor in His sight just as David. You are anointed by Him. He has anointed you and your cup will fill and run over. There is an overflow in the Spirit.

10. Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.” It is better to be all the days of your life in the house of the Lord than to be with foolish people who mocker God. David would rather be a doorkeeper than to be elsewhere. The house of the Lord where His presence and power habits.

11. For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.”  God is your shield, He is your glory and he will not withhold good things from those who walk in integrity.

12. Lord Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you.” If you only trust that God is for you and nobody can be against you, you will be blessed. (Psalms 40:4, Jeremiah 17:7-8, Psalms 5:11-12, Psalms 125:1-2)

I know todays writing was long but it is what the Lord has pressed on my heart. My prayer is that it will fall into good grounds and may find roots and grow in you. Be blessed.

With love,

The Lord remembers you

Hey there, Gods blessing be upon you. Today I just want to share  the thought that even when people try to make you feel bad about a situation/decision, they are actually helping you get stronger and to reach higher. You need the envious people in life, they serve as a push to get you where God wants you to be. They help maximize your potentials, to reach higher and to dig deeper.

You may ask; why are people envious? You may even think “I don’t have nothing they may already have!” But again this is a lie. You have the love of God and is grace that is sufficient for you. This causes people to see you as a thread. The scripture for today is based on Peninnah and Hannah, the two wives of Elkanah (1 Samuel 1) The second scripture is Psalms 126 5-6.

Today I’m not focussing on Samuel but on the rival that is going on between these two woman. You see in text you can read that Peninnah was to one able to give Elkanah sons and daughters. Hannah on the other hand her womb was closed by the Lord. She couldn’t have childeren, she was infertile. But because of this Elkanah knew this and loved Hannah very much he would give Hannah a double portion. (1 Samuel 1:5).

Now this is something that intimidated Peninnah, she knew and saw how Elkanah cared for  Hannah, how he loved her. And the fact that se couldn’t have childeren and that her womb was closed was a strong arrow to use against Hannah, to try to breakin’ her down. So Peninnah starts reviling  Hannah and this goes one for years. She provoked Hannah in order to irritate her. You see know a days people will get in fights. They get jealous of what others have that they don’t but Hannah had a lot amount of courage, class, integrity and dignity. This caused her pain, but the pain caused her to weep in-front of the Lord. People now a days will rival on social media, they even use songs to get back at each other. What Hannah teaches is to not lower your standards, it’s not worthy and doesn’t accomplish anything. Even though it hurt. (1 Samuel 1: 7-8)


Hannah was fasting and praying even though in the text saids that she wouldn’t eat. After the meal she stood up and went to the Lord’s house. After all these years I understand she had enough, I can understand her tears, she was tired of being provoked. Hannah was in her deep anguish, Hannah prayed, Hannah wept bitterly (heartbroken and downhearted), Hannah was in misery but then Hannah makes a vow. (1 Samuel 9-11) “If you consider me a son I will give him back to you all the days of His life, and no razor will be used on his head”. And Hannah kept on praying she was even misunderstood by Eli he thought she was drunk cause she was praying in her heart and her lips were moving without any voice coming out her mouth. (1 Samuel 1:12-16)

You see many times we vow before the Lord and then when we get what we wanted and then we forget the promise we made God and then you find out that it no longer the way planned. Example you ask God for a child, you get the child but you forget you promised God that  you will give him back and this child causes you pain, he his wandering the world, hanging out with bad crowds..

You ask God for a job and promise to give back what you earn. But then when you have the job you forget the promise and just to find out that your short on money, you can’t even remember where and when you spend the money. Maybe it is not going that well at the job anymore and you decide to leave or you’ve been fired, left without a source of income..

The blessing is complete and you may find joy in it when you stand on your promise. Let your yes, be yes…

See Hannah had heart for God even though she was not pregnant yet.. she still worshiped before the Lord. Then the went back to their home at Ramah and Elkanah made love to his wife Hannah and The Lord Remembered Her. In the course of time she became pregnant and gave birth to a son and calls him Samuel, saying, “Because I asked the Lord for him”. (1 Samuel 17 – 19) The Lord remembered her. The Lord blessed her with a child. The Lord can open your womb for new talents that helps you towards your destiny, He’s able to impregnate you with purpose.

Psalms 126: 5-6

Those who sow with tears
    will reap with songs of joy.
Those who go out weeping,
    carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy,
    carrying sheaves with them

Hannah was a woman of her word, so she kept her word and dedicates Samuel to the Lord (1 Samuel 21- 28) whom God will use later on for great things. (following chapters)

Even when people cause you pain, they are helping you get where you need to be. God his purpose his being put inside of you. Every pain you feel and every tear you dropped before God, He will remember them all. What He has in store for you that love Him nobody can comprehend.

Be blessed.

He moves mountains!

Gods blessings be upon you. Good morning. Today I just hope to shine some of Jesus His  light in that ugly situation you may finding yourself in.

You see when you read the bible it says that He is the same yesterday, today and forever more. He is not changing; situations change, people change, the system may fail you but He will never change nor fail you. He is an everlasting God and if He is an everlasting God than I have an everlasting blessing, you have an everlasting blessing.

When I think back on all that He has done, all the miracles I received, all that I’ve been healed from, all that He has deliver me from, all that I been blessed with… I know that He can do the same for you. He did not do it only for me but He did it for all those characters you can read of in the bible. This is prove that if He did it for me and them, He surely can do it for you. Just believe that the Everlasting God is bigger, mightier and stronger. He can bring you out, He can deliver you, He is everything you need in the less expected time. He is never late, just when you think is not going to happen hold on to Him and you will see His glory.


If you think the situation is big and there is not a solution for it so it will be. But if you think that God is bigger and you believe with all your mind, heart and strength without doubting his ability.. you will see that everything that seemed big is small.

With faith you can move mountains.

Bible verses that prove to you that He is the one that can do it for you and for me:

Isaiah 40:4 Every valley shall be raised up,
    every mountain and hill made low;
the rough ground shall become level,
    the rugged places a plain.

Job 9:4-5 His wisdom is profound, his power is vast.
    Who has resisted him and come out unscathed?
He moves mountains without their knowing it
    and overturns them in his anger.

Matthew 21:21 21 Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done.

Isaiah 41:15 15 “See, I will make you into a threshing sledge,
    new and sharp, with many teeth.
You will thresh the mountains and crush them,
    and reduce the hills to chaff.

Ezekiel 38:20 20 The fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the beasts of the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all the people on the face of the earth will tremble at my presence. The mountains will be overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground.

I hope you will be blessed. Change your perspective of seeing things. All you need is Him. What seems impossible for men is possible for God. Consult the Holy Spirit for wisdom through every situation you may be going through.

My praise: When I didn’t have the strength, the Holy Spirit was pleading for me and fighting for me. In my most peaceful and quiet place in my interior I was crying out for His help. It felt like I was not able to stand up back, but than He stepped in the most perfect time and change my tragedy into a teaching message. My sadness into joy. He turned it all around. So I believe with you today that God will do it for you.

Hold on and never let go. Be blessed. From my heart tot yours.

2015 New beginnings for greater things…

God bless you,

Today I want to boost you with Jeremiah 29:11 but before I do that I want to explain to you what beginning stands for. If you take the word beginning (Genesis) and define it you will come to the conclusion that it means the point in time or space at which something starts or the point at which someone comes to life.

Now the good thing is that before you came to life God knew you, before He formed you He set you apart for the greater(Jeremiah 1:5). And then He tells you that He has a plan to prosper you not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11). Well it is a good thing that He is a man of His word and that He will make sure to fulfil all His promises made to you. Because the Bible says that He is no man that should lie (Numbers 23:19) and the scripture also says in Matthew 24:35 “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.” So this is your assurance for this year that God’s word will stand and prevail till the end.

Jer 29;11

So this is a New year to live and to see God’s promises come to life in your live. As you’re walking towards or into your destiny God will set you up for greater things. Even if you don’t see it right now He will do it. You see when you have faith you will not walk by sight. Trust Gods in all your ways and you will see that He is up to do greater things in your life.

2015 is the year for greater things if you let God have His way.

Be blessed.

With loving regards,


Leap on Faith!

God bless you,

Today I want to encourage you shortly with the following; Make sure your trust in God will only grow stronger. Maintain your faith, never think otherwise. The God you serve will make a way where there is no way, He will provide when you thought there was nothing left. He is the same yesterday, today and in all the eternity He will be the same loving and gracious God. Remember you only need a faith like a grain of mustard to move obstacles out of the way..

The bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:7 That you live by faith and not by sight. And as you know faith is believing that something is already accomplished/done without seeing it yet. (it is all take care off, you must only believe it) If you only lived by things you can see life would be short and you will be constantly be struggling to gain things you don’t have and see. But trust in God, the fait is the strong foundation that makes life worth living for.

hebrew 11;1

Hebrew 11:1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”  (you can read the whole chapter)

Be blessed.

With loving regards,


A vital life..

God bless you,

This morning I want to remember you why it so important that we are constantly talking to God. (praying) When you pray doesn’t necessarily mean you have to ask for something. You can be grateful and thankful for what God is doing. Grateful for life because this was not promised to you it is by His grace..Grateful that He will never forsaken you, give your praise to God, Exalt Him, Glorify Him… Now a days we have a attitude that when we need something we know what prayer means. Prayer is not a option to get out of trouble. Sometimes prayer brings relief, you can see with clarity a way out all that stress has covered with darkness. You now have hope.

For Paul praying was not a option it was a vital question. Paul writes in
1 Thessalonians 5:17 that we must pray without ceasing..Also in the book of Romans chapter 12:12 he says:” Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” When your faithful to something you can also say you are committed to it.. Commit yourself in prayer. Talk to God about everything. There is nothing you can say to God that He already didn’t know about.

Ephesians 6;18

You must be driven by the Holy Ghost to connect with the Father, it is not a routine it is a act inspired and driven by the Holy Ghost.
Ephesians 6:18 says “ And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.”

If you look at Jesus, He was disciplined in prayer. His ministry begun with praying and fasting. Matthew 4:4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’

The first church in acts 2:42 lived in a atmosphere of praying;They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.

We must be constantly in prayer. Prayer builds us up. When you pray you are keeping the line of communication between you and God open. Remember that when you communicate with someone you have to give them the space to reply back. Give God the chance to answer back to you.

Be blessed.

With loving regards,



You got to help yourself…

God bless you,

Today I’ll write this to you; If you have been praying for a job, healing, deliverance or something else that that requires your faith in God then the next thing I’ll write to you is that if you have faith and you don’t accompanied it with action then you will not see results.

Example 1: If you need a job and you’ve been praying about it and your just laying on the couch, watching tv and app’ing friends around for nights out…. this is not a active attitude that say’s I’m praying for a job and I need a job. You cannot just stay inside and wait upon the Lord. If you don’t get out there than you cannot see opening doors for you.
Luke 5:1-11 NIV Simon was working (fishing) he worked the whole night but didn’t catch anything but then Jesus came to him the following happend;

“Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.” Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.” When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. Simon had faith and believed God.

Example 2: If you need healing and healing is offer to you but for any reason you decide to not accept medicine that helps controle the sickness than you don’t want healing. You have been praying but your not willing to take the first step.

I know you can tell me about the woman that had a blood issue for twelve years she tried every doctor spend every resource but it didn’t help she needed Jesus. But she didn’t only pray, she tried hard enough to have an encounter with Jesus. So Jesus was passing by there was a multitude but it didn’t stop her. She stretched and touch the garment of His robe. She put her faith in action. She didn’t sit and wait around she took the first step!

Example 3: You need deliverance, your praying God but your not willing to let go from the past and the things that been holding you captive. You pray everyday but doesn’t want to come to church to receive help. How is that faith working so far??

As people we give satan the opportunity to ask you where is your God. He says he provides, heals and deliver… but we as humans don’t put work, action into it.

Willingness combined with faith will drive you into going after your job, healing and deliverance!

James 2;17


James 2:17 NIV says;

17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

Be blessed.

With loving regards,
