Glimpse to the past!

Sembehun a town in Bo District, in the Southern Province of Sierra Leone
Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth
Before the difficult days come,
And the years draw near when you say 
I have no pleasure in them

While the Sun was coming up
In 2017 was a year that memories came back
It was not something I wanted to remember
Locked away in a box and thrown at the back of the mind

Lord Jesus, You sent the Holy Spirit 
So I can remember all the things of the past
Because healing comes in different form
And to move on I needed to remember 

The God that saved us that day is the same God today
Remember the days of old
Consider this for many generations, 
Write down so you will not forget

As I sat down and looked into the past 
Taken to that day was a young me 
Stood at the door were men with guns and cutlass
Bang goes the door and broken down

Running for our lives and up the stairs we go 
Could hear the footsteps behind us
It was getting closer but we have to get away
Run, run, run, run we did and they followed
Our little legs ran from these strange men in our home

Our home that was safe was no longer safe an intruder was in the house
And there we reached our papa’s room
He was up and was wondering what was going on
He pushed us all to the back of the room when he saw them following us

The intruder was standing in front of us and my papa was shielding us
They looked at us 
That day you protected us because today I remember 
It was You Lord

We are not special, my family is not special to escape 
The enemy unharmed
You protected us, they walked away because You made them
We were in with them and anything could have happen 

Today I remember that not only did you save us 
But you gave us food to eat daily 
You look at your servant and took her out of this and as I remember
Lives lost, family torn apart and children taken away from parents

I am not special yet You saved me
I will remember the old days that You looked upon Your servant 
And helped her and her family
I will give you thanks 

I Love You Yahweh
I Love You Jesus, You choose me and Loved me
Broken down, You changed my hate to Love
You turned my life around and gave me hope 

You made me whole
I will remember
Because the creator sent the Spirit to live in me 
Through Christ Jesus our Saviour

And Your mercy which You give generously to all.
Is within me to remember that You are my Saviour

Thanks so much for reading and today it is based on when we had a civil war in Sierra Leone between 1991 - 2002, and I had forgotten all about it. I guess growing up made me not want to think about it. 
But Abba Father has different ideas when it comes to His children and He is just pure amazing. I will be forever grateful for everything He has done and continues to do.

Eccelesiates is one of my favorites because it is practical and helped me in my healing times and it always brings a smile to my face. 

“Vanity of vanities,” says the Preacher. “Vanity of vanities! All [that is done without God’s guidance] is vanity [futile, meaningless—a wisp of smoke, a vapor that vanishes, merely chasing the wind].” Ecclesiastes 1:2 AMP
Hannah Michaela
Smoke, nothing but smoke. No God means life vanishes like a smoke and never to be seen.
Have a wonderful day and be blessed.

    1. Thanks so much for stopping and the comment.
      This is glimpse to my past which was more than twenty years ago and the healing process was a long one that I can now openly talk about it.

      But what I tell you is true. It will be better for you if I go away. Because, if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I do go away, I will send him to you. John 16:7 EASY

      God has helped me through this whole thing. The Holy Spirit guides us to the truth which sets us free. I faced this with His help, guiding and showing me to the people that can help me in the process of healing. Talking about it to the right people and processing it my own way not what others think or say I should do and that is how He helped me.

      In the face of great pain is when you seek Him and you find Him,
      In the face of great pain is when He becomes our comforter, Adocate, Intercessor, counselor, strengthener and standby.
      In the face of great pain is when our faith is tested

      To be honest, It only God that has healed me and I can not explain how. It is a miracle.

      Healing process comes in different ways and everyone is different. There is no one formula to how anyone gets healed through the Holy Spirit.
