“Man’s Rejection is God’s Protection”

“Man’s rejection, is God’s protection”

This is a quote that I have been living by lately.

Last week, I was listening to an episode of the Lady Gang podcast featuring Jeannie Mai from The Real. As I was listening, she was discussing a lost opportunity years prior to her success and how that rejection allowed her to find something better and more fulfilling. This quote was enlightening to me and I began to think about all of the times when rejection has spawned an otherwise positive outcome for me.

For example, I had been working in the same seasonal job position from my mid teens into my early 20’s. For the first time in 6 years, I was blindsided when I got an email that stated that my services would not be needed for that upcoming summer. I became frantic and depressed. I took the first job that was offered to me because I was so nervous to be unemployed, even though it wasn’t related to my field. When I went to job orientation, I became suddenly depressed and I knew that it wasn’t for me. I went home and cried but then I suddenly woke up and decided to apply to every job opportunity so that I could focus on my career and not my loss. When I opened my email, the company that I had previously interned at had a position open for me and I jumped at it! I have been there now for 3 years, working in my field of study and loving it.

The rejection in this case was my protection as it allowed me to grow in my career instead of basking in my comfort.

I think about my break up with my ex as well. His rejection was my protection. His rejection allowed me to self reflect and work on the parts of myself that weren’t so great. It also allowed me to learn that self love is the most important factor in life and that we can achieve this through a belief that we have the power to do all things because of a higher power (Call it God or not). I began to believe in the universe and this manifested into me believing in myself. I began to love the others around me more. Mostly, I learned to let go of people and negative situations that no longer served me.

I also learned what I did and didn’t want in a man so that hopefully I will get the chance to get love right in the future.

These were lessons I had to learn.

So, the next time you feel that getting declined for something is the worst thing in the world, always remember this: Man’s rejection is God’s Protection. You won’t see it right away, but you will soon see it manifest into a different and better opportunity.

Day 1: Stormy Weather

“Spiritual growth is being aware when there is a storm happening inside of you, you still remain prayful as it passes by” – Sprinkle of Jesus

Follow me on my Sprinkle of Jesus journey for the month of February. Everyday, I will write out the quote that is sent to me and I will explain its relevance to me at this time in my life.

The storm in me is currently that I am lacking self love and I am overthinking damaging things that were said to me, which has caused my mental health to deteriorate. I need to learn to reach out to God more than I have been in order to find peace within. I have to continue to pray in order to get through this time as my faith and my strength will guide me through.


Forcing Myself to do the No Carb Lunch

A no carb lunch! What a thing is this?! Recently, I have just started out with my healthy eating20170708_180649 journey, and it is my ultimate goal to be able to shed serious weight before the end of 2017. Late start to the goal, but a late start is better than no start!

With this I wanted to show you what one of my typical lunches have been looking like. What I have in my plate are the following:

  • Harissia Seasoned Chicken (PC Brand Seasoning)
  • Vegetable Stir-fry (Onions, Broccoli, Mushrooms, Bean Sprouts)

So far its been super healthy but I do miss my bread and pastas. You can make healthy look and taste good, but you have to be ready to make the change.

Follow me on my healthy eating journey as I continue.

Broccoli and Beansprouts

Broccoli is probably one of the universally used vegetables in the North American diet. Its popularity is astounding and it provides you with exceptional health benefits and an even more pleasing taste. To change it up, I made this simple mix of Broccoli and Beansprouts in a pan covered up, not for long, in order to add a fun spin to my daily vegetable mix. Below is my recipe.




  • One bunch of Broccoli chopped up
  • half a bag of bean sprouts
  • One sweet bell pepper (any colour)
  • 2 tablespoons of oil (vegetable or olive)
  • a slice of a hot pepper (jalapeno or scotch bonnet)
  • one teaspoon of black pepper
  • half an onion
  • 4 sliced white mushrooms (Optional)


  1. Heat pan up with oil inside
  2. Add sliced onion, black pepper and hot pepper
  3. When the pan and additions begin to simmer, add the broccoli, beansprouts, and bell peppers to the pan (add mushrooms now too if you decide to)
  4. Cover and let simmer for 10-15 minutes depending on how hard or soft you want your vegetables to be
  5. Use a spatula to turn around the vegetables when necessary and add water if the vegetables are sticking directly to the pan

This is a great quick and healthy recipe if you’re hungry and just want to keep on a healthy direction. Hope you try this and enjoy!

Quick Kale Stirfry

This is one of my favourite go to recipes for dinner. I am not a vegan or a health nut, but I do believe that it is so important to have vegetables in your diet. This recipe is so easy and tasty too.



  • Chopped Kale
  • Sliced sweet peppers
  • a slice of a fresh hot pepper (jalapeno or scotch bonnet are my faves)
  • mushrooms
  • Sliced carrots
  • 2 tbsp oil (olive or vegetable)
  • 1 tsp black-pepper
  • half an Onion sliced


  1. put pan on stove. set heat to a medium temperature
  2. add oil to pan.
  3. Add onions, black pepper, and slice of hot pepper. Let it start to Simmer.
  4. Once the pan is at a simmer, add the kale, sweet peppers, carrots to the pan. Cover and let steam for 5-7 minutes.
  5. Add sliced mushrooms to the pan. Cover and let simmer for 3-5 min
  6. Check for completion.

If you like your vegetables hard, then 10 minutes total cooking time should do the trick. If you like them a tad softer, then let them simmer for a bit longer!

Hope you try this out for one of your dinners! Its quick and tasty and super duper easy to do!
