Faith is belief and trust in God, knowing God is real even though you can't see Him. In Hebrews 11:1, it says: Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. When you have faith, there are no ifs ands or buts about what you can do. Any and everything is possible. Consider this: Do you have little faith or complete faith? Little faith gets us nowhere in fulfilling the purpose God has for our lives. In Matthew 17:20, Jesus said to his disciples, "Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to there and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." When you have complete faith, you are one with the Father and Jesus Christ, and you are receptive to the Holy Spirit-you are willing to go through test and trials and not be defeated. It is certainly difficult for man to follow the Lord, but it comes to a point where enough is enough and you learn to abandon yourself to God in total surrender. You give it all to Him, desire His presence daily, and work out what God works in you. You realize that your best isn't good enough without Him. By having complete faith, you trust in God completely to see you through every situation and circumstance and you take on new opportunites he reveals to you. Today are you willing to say: I must be daring enough to invest my faith in the character of God!!!


I like

I like a whole lot of things.

I like the sunshine and rain.

I like the color purple, blue, pink, and green.

I like good food, well seasoned, healthy food.

I like good music and I mean GOOD music, that is in no way derogatory towards women and perversive.

I like wearing lip gloss, yes, you best believe it is popping.

I like staying up late, real late, a night owl.

I like kind of work out.

I like pies, peach cobblers, cakes, muffins, beignets, pancakes, cookies, name it from SCRATCH. I rather not confine my abilities in a box.

I like the hotness...Taye Diggs, Shemar Moore. But in the real world, I like God fearing men who know how to treat a woman like a queen.

I like pink lemonade with a hint of lime.

I like Hoops & YoYo.

I like Care Bears. They rock!

I like butterflies, they represent transformation.

I like shopping.

I like good conservations.

I like a whole lot of things, but my likes have to end for now.

Why start a blog? Why start a blog? I just felt the need to write because I love to write even though I usually don't have time to write casually (only on special papers that is). Well, it is not that I don't have time to write, but I don't make time to write. This is certainly an opportunity to express my thoughts and what nots with an everchanging world that construes the ideals of life and don't see it for what it is, what is it? Yes! Life is more than a fancy, a dream to live, why not live the dream you desire and cherish to hold close? Everyday that is what I intend to take hold of my dreams and make them happen with every twist and turn that may get in the way-it won't stop me. I am unstoppable because I know who I am. I am Chishinga Shira Callender. Yes, are you thinking, who has a name like that? Me. I wouldn't change it for the world. Chishinga meaning creative and Shira meaning strength, I live to be that creative strength, to put essence into everything I do and to be strong and confident and daring to defeat the odds and overcome fears and ride on the vehicle of success. And just how can I do the impossible and think the unthinkable on man's terms? I am a believer in the most high God, a loving, a forgiving GOD. Clearly, I am not just a believer who attends church every Sunday and goes to this, that, and the other to proclaim I am here, look at me. When asked the question, has the gospel constrained you to be a worshipper for the rest of your life? The answer is yes. It is called being a true worshipper, day in and day out. I have learned to put ALL my trust in God-it is my duty to trust in Him and to have unwavering faith. I can't be doubtful and question His presence and workings in mi vida. I have to walk out on the water and look up. Looking down will only bring you down, so I have learned in my college experience thus far and now I know the difference. This is a just a preview into the workings of me. There is more to come, and I'm not afraid to bring it because I am daring enough to invest my faith in the character of God and fulfill the purpose He has put in me so that I may be a blessing to you and you and you.
