“Treasure Trove of Information”

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 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

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
