Driven by purpose. Executed in love
The straight-talking truth teller
... I have in Christ by knowing the truth and his word - what an honour and joy!
My name is the route and prayer of it all, Motunrayo Ekundayo means 'I have found another joy/happiness' and 'sorrow becomes joy' and that is my prayer for you that everytime you type, speak and read this site that this manifests itself into existence around you and in to your life.
Unfortunately in life things are thrown at us in the form of pain, disappointment and hurt (honestly the list is endless) and we find sometimes when our faith is weak, thinking we can't be joyful in the midst of those moments or that your tears won’t turn to joy from those circumstances but I am here to tell and show you THEY CAN! We need to stop running from and run to the one who can give us this joy and peace that surpasses understanding and allow the
only one who can to heal you through it all and allow God to build your character through joy, not sadness, bitterness or sorrow that is temporary.
My walk, which the most important walk I will take in this life began when I first began to understand that. I have a purpose and everything I experience or endure (good, bad and ugly) is for my maker's will, but how can I operate effectively let alone excel without first going back to my manufacturer/maker to ask what is my purpose and how do I walk to fulfil it? I believe I have a calling with my gifts of honesty, transparency and communication to help inspire this generation to get back to God's way and I pray you find him as you seek him in my words. This isn't a blog about my life, it's a church, a body of Christ of which you will find him here at the centre of it all and I pray you do.
Enjoy and engage it's here for your benefit, not appeasement! xo

Go to scripture: Jeremiah 29:11
"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive."
ABOUT THE WALK
The journey begins when you begin walking..
See.. having a real and true relationship with God where you speak and he hears you seems so unattainable for some and at one point it did for me too. I never understood why some people had that burning desire and my just was 'okay' and accepted the false truth that we tell ourselves that 'God made me like this, soo I obviously ain't one of them people that has the power to cast out demons'. Excuse me? Skrrr. Nope. No. Wrong. Faith builds strength. Feed your faith. Everyone, yes I mean everyone has the same opportunity to walk in faith not by sight in God's way, truth and light through Jesus by building a relationship with him not following a ‘religion’. My life is literally the epitome of this testimony of God, where the turn around in my life is attainable to anyone who wants it enough to do something about it. This is where I step in. I have always been blunt and a very open person about my life and been called to share it with you in this way as a living sacrifice to God and his kingdom to solely encourage and inspire through my walk for you to seek God in the same way. No matter how far away you believe you are from him trust me it is only a walk away, but you must start walking my loves.
I have created this website to not be a blog, which “The Walk” is only a feature to further illustrate through posts about my studies, testimonies and revelations what a life with Christ as your forfront looks like. This space has been designed to be an interactive space for you to come to daily (yes that means you have to get involved!). As a body of Christ, we need to work together to function and fufil our Fathers ultimate purpose on this earth is, in order to do this we must connect and rise up as one body to do the Kingdom works effectively. I pray and have hope that this expression of church online will allow this to come to pass. Amen.
Enjoy and get involved in the website! It doesn't work if others can't attest to the glory of God to let others see that God isn't just amazing in my life!
See my Youtube video below explaining how I got here!

Scriptures to Anchor Yourself
I am merely a man and unfortunately I can fail you (Isaiah 2:22) which is why God gives us grace, however he does not fail you! The word of God is God himself (John 1:1) and you get to know someone by understanding who they are through communcation - written or verbal. Loose yourself in him, in his word and feed your spirit man and help him anchor yoursevles in the truth. Below are scriptures that you can refer to help stir up faith and remind you through lifes good and bad times that he is able - let this be the same song you sing in both times. Anchor yourself in your walk with him through his word.
"Let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart"
"But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficent for the day is its own trouble"
Matthew 6: 33-34
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God which surpasses understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus"
Phillipians 4: 6-8
“Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”
"The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent."
"So let us each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity for God loves a cheerful giver. God is able to make all grace abound to you, that you always having a sufficency in all things may have an abundance for every good work"
2 Corinthias 9: 7-8
"For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God, who saved us to a holy calling."
2 Timothy 1: 7-8
"Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus."

Testimonies after fellowshiping with ME
"I don't know how to explain it but God opened so many doors today. People who I never thought would give me the time of day reached out and favoured me.. God showed up differently today!"
"Monty is a great source of encouragement. I know God truly wants to do good work through her and her blog. Ever since she told me that she wants to start a blog, there has been a bright light shining out of her.
I know that this website will help the masses, as every time I have a conversation with Monty I get great joy out of it, it always roots back to God & I'm always enlightened."
Even though we do not share the same religion I have been touched by your passion and commitment to serving your God. Your conviction is an inspiration. Seeing how you draw strength from your relationship with God has made me rethink my life and my devotion to my Creator. I thank you, and this Muslim will most certainly walk with you.
"Your courage and strength is making me go back and look at what God wanted me to do in a tough time"
"Sometimes in praying for others you find your own purpose in the process. One selfless act can lead to a deeper understanding of your calling and destiny. While praying words for The Walk, I actually found the title to my next mixtape project which I had been asking God for. Each day I realise I am STRONGER with him than without him."
In fasting for The Walk: "I haven't done a dry fast in a while because of my migraine issues but today I've been able! I even went to the gym without my head acting upI'm so happy!! Walk with me is already releasing it's blessings!"
"Monty's story has i nspired me tot have faith in God's plans for my life above my own. I have been strengthened in my ability to trust the journey of faith that I'm on ad to allow God to comfort me. I've been reminded that growth occurs through dificult times and God will not give me more than I can handle!"
"Even fasting for this blog launch has helped my spirit life, I had never used prayer points for each hour of the day whilst fasting. Going forward I will be doing this as it helped me stay focused on the reason I was fasting!"
