Do Not be Afraid!

'Then Jesus said to them, 
“Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; 
there they will see me.” '

Matthew 28:10 NIV
Do not be afraid 
The words that consoles my heart 
The words that are sweet to my ears 
The words that makes the racing heart slow down

But I tell you not to resist an evil person
But whoever slaps you on the right cheek 
Turn the other to him also 
Do not be afraid 

It is amazing the upside down Kingdom of God
As things get back to normal 
Life become busy 
And the good works 
The building of the foundation 
Questions start to happen
Do I stop, just because!

So in the wisdom of the Lord 
I reflect on the journey 
This week, back to normal 
What is back to normal?

I have no idea, but I do know this is normal
People voted yesterday in UK
Yes I voted, I have always done the anti-social
Postal vote all the way 
At the comfort of my own house
Disappoints happening and the news 
And the blames, of the what if
I tell you, do not be afraid

The most amazing thing happened 
And I want to rejoice and scream and shout 
Glory to God in the highest through 
Christ Jesus I ran this week

Yes I am an active member of the society
I love the outdoors so a little story
See I stopped running ages ago 
I just walk and I was freed from this

What does that mean? 

Let us start 
See last week, on my usually walk around 
The park, this was on Thursday I broke into a run 
I don’t know how to express it 
Or what made me do it 
but it felt so good that I must have done 
More than three laps round the field
See I am processing girl and 
still getting to grips with this

Just a backup story 
I use to run early mornings 
As an early bird, we talking before six
and one day this guy was following me 
I didn’t know at the time

I don't know how to explain it, but
In my spirit I felt like I had to stop 
Turn off the headphones and listen 
So I did, and all my sense were heighten up

My heart was racing, 
And all I could say is I will never run again
Help me God, I will never run this early again 
If nothing happens, I was making all this promises
so I started to slow down and got ready

For what was to come, so
I turned just in time to see this strange man
Out of place and the surprise was gone
He stopped in his tracked 
I looked straight at him  
Could not see his face, under his hood 

But my God is so good, so with him standing 
The element of surprise is gone
He was frozen, and 
I turned around and 
I ran as fast as my legs could carry me home 
All the while looking over shoulder to make sure 
He didn’t follow me,

But he couldn’t do anything 
And I saw him turned back the other way 
And that was the end of my running
The enemy taught he has me cornered

The Lord is my Shepherd 
I shall not want  
He is my comforter and healer
And I stopped running it is more than five years now 

Could you believe it, I had forgotten all about it
We do not fight against flesh and blood 
The weapon of our warfare is not canal
My God will supply all my needs 
He will protect me

So I broke into a run and I was free 
Flying like a bird, the sun on face 
And a smile giving thanks to the Lord
I am still smiling for I am free 

It is crazy but I love the way our Lord 
Heals everyone in a different way
And a different time, all I have to do is 
Go to Him and He will give me rest

This all started because 
I made up my mind to read this book
By Kris Vallotton - Spirit Wars
I bought this book more than a year ago 
and never opened it 

I tell you this, because later on 
I got this same book in kindle for free 
What does that tell me? 
Read it young lady but I did not 

Don’t know why but I am glad I opened it

The first day I opened it was on the First of May
Not knowing that it opens the door to walk 
In with the Lord, to take out all the buried things 

This week has been a healing week
Every week is a healing week and 
to do what God wants me to do
Looking at the lies that I have come to believe 

Just getting into the scripture
We do not fight against flesh and blood 
Do not be afraid 

God is so amazing 
I tell you the Lord our God is awesome
When He is ready, when we obey 
It just happens and so I have started to run 
Doing five laps, it is small park 800m 

It feels so good, to start small 
I am so looking forward to doing it once a week

My mind is made up
My heart is bursting with JOY 

Now I can tell you I had forgotten all about this:

The feel of the winds on your face 
The cool breeze
The breath building up 
The faster you run 
The hearts beats ever so fast 

And as you slow down 

The heart slows 
The mind stops 
The legs moves with reach step

Yes I do love the outdoors 
And I have come to realize that we forget 
But God never forgets 

He loves us so much, from day one 
His promise was to free us and 
We have been freed 

Christ the Lover of our soul
The Bridegroom that sees the flaws 
And chose us, and said YES I want 
YOU, come with Me 
And all we have to do is say AMEN
And walk with Him 

I get to imagine the garden 
Running in it and free 
I love the garden 

That is just amazing to me
The LORD of hosts
He is the King of glory
To You, O Lord I lift my soul 
O my God I trust You
And I will not be afraid
