Your testimonies I have taken as a heritage forever. For they are the rejoicing of my heart Psalms 119:111 NKJV
Grace and peace to you from our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Wow, another week has started and I am delighted you can drop by.
Welcome to my vault, hope you had a good weekend? For me?… I have enjoyed EURO football and the freedom to meet others. Had a BBQ with the youth outside, after church on Sunday. The first time was at a full church with a live band and we still wore masks and no singing from the crowd, only the band. But I tell you the presence of the Lord was around. We sang from the heart and the room was buzzing.
Laments: According to wikipedia: Laments a passionate expression of grief, often in music, poetry or song form.
The year has caused me to express to our God
Not to complain but to express passionately about the journey
It is hard, in 2019 when I first express it In front of the mirror and I was in despair I saw pains, I could not look at myself for long My face was covered in trouble and sorrow Then I call upon the name of the Lord Lord, deliver me and heal me Gracious is the Lord and righteousness Yes our God is merciful The Lord preserves the simple I was brought low, and He saved me Rest my soul, rest in the Lord
As the new season starts, I reflect on the whole season in the wilderness.
We are walking in a wilderness and not alone and as June comes to an end
I look to my God I look to our Savior My soul remembers and sinks within me This I have recall in my mind Therefore I have hope For some of us our dances have turned to mourning Our crowns have fallen Some out of shame or guilt Some out of fear or despair Some out of self pity or self indulgence But we will hope in the Lord The Lord is good to those that waits for Him For the Lord will not cast off forever Though He causes grief Yet He will show compassion According to the multitude of His mercies For our Lord and Saviour Does not afflict willingly Nor grieve the children of men I will walk before the Lord In the land of the living I believe in the Lord As we walk in the shadows of death We will fear no evil The breathe we have The very breath we breathe The breathe You have given us It is at risk to our lives We can’t even come close to each other in the wilderness Our skins is hot as an oven Our taste is no more Our smell is non existence The elders have suffered and at risk They have ceased to gathered at the gate The young walk with head hung The joy of our heart is ceasing Our dance has turn to mourning The crown on our head has fallen Woe to us for we have sinned Because of this we are alone Because of this our heart faint Because of this our eyes lose focus and dim Why do You forget us forever And forsake us for so long a time? Turn us back to You Lord, and we will be restored Renew our days, as we walk the new path Restore us to You, as we get back to a new normal I call on Your Name, O Lord From the lowest pit You heard my voice Do no hide Your ear From my sighing, from my cry for help You drew near on the day I called on You And said “For I, the Lord your God, Will hold your right hand, Saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you’” You, O Lord remain forever Your throne from generation to generation Praise the Lord I pray that you get inspired to lament to God Find the words and be passionate For our Lord is First and deserves the best That means HOT not lukewarm God is the Lord So in the morning on Sunday I opened my Bible Would you believe the page that was opened Job 40 and I read the words and continued to chapter 41 Looking at my inner self I could not help but resonate with the reply of Job As the words sink into my heart My mind and heart registers I fall on my knees Our Lord can do anything and everything And I utter words that I cannot understand And I have heard of You, Lord by the hearing of the ear But now my eyes sees You I come before You and repent What shall I render to the Lord For all His benefits towards me? I will take up the cup of Salvation I will obey His words I will walk with my neighbour in truth and love Precious is the sight of the Lord O Lord, truly I am Your servant Truly, You have loosen my bonds Praise the Lord.
Thank you again for stopping by it means a lot to me. Pray you have a wonderful week 🙂 We cannot control what happens around us, but we can control our responses. Be bless and know that the Lord loves you ©Hannah M Vandi. And I also pray that this verse refreshes you this week: 'However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace. ' Acts 20:24 NIV
