Don’t Lose Yourself

Dear Someone,

If you found this letter and you are having a hard time, feeling like you’ve lost yourself instead of finding yourself, mentally and emotionally drained, and are scared of getting hurt again, that means it is for you. I am sending you this letter in the very final moments of my last evening of this glorious year 2018. I do so with so much gratitude and amazement. It is been an awesome year, and I am so excited to see what 2019 will bring for you and me.

As you know, 2019 will be another blank book, and we can’t but trust that God is going to write our story Himself. 2018 might not have started off great but you need to understand that even though you may still be going through a rough time right now, even though it might look like you have dug yourself deep in a pit that would be hard to get out of, you shouldn’t be looking for happiness from the same place you lost it. You shouldn’t be looking at where you fell, but where you slipped.

Do Yourself A Favour

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you. You that’s lonely at heart. You that’s feeling the pain in your chest from hearing or seeing something that actually breaks your heart. I want you to know that everything happens for a reason known to your Creator. In life, people will give up on you but God never will. Avoid overthinking and trust Him in that situation. Avoid overthinking and allow God to help you through that challenge. Do yourself a favour and learn how to walk away from a mess. Do yourself a favour and learn to say enough is enough. Do yourself a favour and come out of that silent hell you call a relationship. When a connection starts to fade, learn to let it go. When a relationship starts to isolate you from God and true friends, let it go, it’s toxic. Be brave enough to say goodbye, you won’t regret it!

Don’t Mistake DELAYS For DESTINY. 


It’s very easy for the enemy to trap us into hiding in shame and fear. I have seen many people going into hiding because they were dismissed from work for fraud. There are those that have left Church because of one challenge or the other. There are those who are running away from their broken marraiges, abusive partner or from past poor decisions that brought brought shame to them.

Remember Who Was There For You

Dear Someone,

I want you to always remember who was there for you when NO ONE else was. Remember who was there for you when you were at your lowest. Remember who was there for you when you didn’t have anything. Remember who was there for you when you needed a shoulder to cry on. Remember who was there for you when you felt the weakest and not who’s there to have a good time

No matter what you have been through, remember those that were there for you when your world or marriage was like a silent hell. Remember those that were there for you when times were tough. Not everyone actually cares for you the way YOU think they do. Remember those that were there for you when everybody else turned their back on you. Remember those that were there for you when everything around you was falling apart. Remember those that were there for you when no one else wanted to be there and those that answered your call at 2 am when you were loosing it.

Never ignore a person who loves you and cares for you. Keep them close, for such people are rare.

In Him,
~Ali Papa.

I Am Ready

Dear Family,

I have heard your cries. I have heard your petitions. I have seen your tears, your struggles and I feel your pain. But rest in me today. Refuse to be afraid. “I was eyes to the blind, and feet to him who had no power of walking” – Job 29:15 (BBE).

“I promised to save you, and I kept my promise…I am God now and forever. No one can snatch you from me or stand in my way”- Isaiah 43:12-13 (CEV).

I was known for helping people in trouble and standing up for those who were down on their luck. “I was a saviour to the poor when he was crying for help, to the child with no father, and to him who had no supporter” – Job 29:12 (BBE).

I will not leave you as an opharn without help. I am ready to turn some things around for you. From today, my peace, the only one none other can give, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in my son, Christ Jesus – Phillipians 4:7.

Your God of Peace.
