Shift your focus!

'Then Jesus said, 
“Come to me, 
all of you who are weary 
and carry heavy burdens, 
and I will give you rest. 
Take my yoke upon you. 
Let me teach you, 
because I am humble and gentle at heart, 
and you will find rest for your souls. 
For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”'

Matthew 11:28-30 NLT

Thank God it is Friday! I must say the Lord 
Does love us so much 
For He knows every thoughts He has has towards us 
And when we shift our focus from worry to worship 
The dynamic and surrounding changes 
The Peace from our Lord will never be removed
His Kindness will never depart from us

Thoughts of worship surrounds my head 
As the mountains move 
The hills shift but my God still remains the same 
His mercy was on me

Thinking of the the words He spoke to Elijah In 1 Kings 19

As I reflect on His words and at the end of the week 
All I could picture is 
“What are you doing here, Hannah”

To have muscle, to get tone 
It is not just the weights
Oh how I wish it was just the weights  
But I find myself needing  to make sure 
I get  the right amount of sleep
Stretching so I don’t injure myself 
Having the right amount of nutrients that the body needs 
And ensuring that I drink plenty of water

I have been zealous for You Lord
This week was like carrying a boulder on my back 
Forgetting to take the rest needed
And stretching of my muscles so they are ready when needed 

And as the work week comes to an end
Well not end for good 
But thank God it is Friday
Out of the depths I cried to my Lord 
Lord hear my voice 
Let Your ears be attentive 
To the voice of my supplications

If You count all our sins then 
No one will stand in Your presence 
But there is forgiveness in Christ Jesus 

For I have forgotten, that You are right next to me
I am not alone but You have a whole army waiting to serve You
So I come to the Lord 
With my burden for it was too heavy to carry 
My knees were buckling
My neck hurts and my mind could not focus 
The busyness of the world distracted me from the Light 

The Light that shines so brightly 
With open arms You welcome me Lord 
So I say to my soul wait on the Lord 
For the Lord says wait 
Let us sit down and have a meal

Do not be despair 
For the Lord our God will never fail us
We should wait and when He says move we should move

For who can walk this earth blameless 
For there is no Power without the pressure 
Stand when the pressure comes 
Be still and know that He is God 
For the movement of a can of coke 
Blows up when open

So I say to my soul 
Be still, stand when the storm comes 
For our strength is not on the things around us 
But greater is He that is in us than He that is in the world
For with the Lord there is mercy
And with Him is abundant redemption 

Oh, how I love the Lord Jesus for 
He not only carry our heavy burdens 
And give rest but also teaches 
My soul wait on the Lord
 
Teach me Your way and I will walk in the truth 
Unite my heart to fear Your name 
And I will praise You, O Lord my God 
With all my heart 
And I will glorify Your Name forevermore

but we can change our responses."
