“Treasure Trove of Information”


' Israel lives in safety, the fountain of Jacob is quite secure, 
in a land of grain and new wine; indeed, its heavens rain down dew. 
You have joy, Israel! Who is like you? 
You are a people delivered by the Lord , 
your protective shield and your exalted sword. 
May your enemies cringe before you; may you trample on their backs.'

Deuteronomy 33:28-29 NET

As I read the Book of Deuteronomy and 
At the end of Moses life
He gives blessings to the people of Israel 

One cannot help but be very thankful to our Lord 
Jesus Christ through Him we all have this blessing 
Happy are us, who come to our God 
In the name of the Lord Jesus 

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. It is the beginning of August and soon we will start to see Christmas themes. 

Welcome to my vault, hope you had a good weekend? For me wow is what I can say…

On Saturday, spur of the moment. 
A friend invited me to come along to Lavender Garden and 
I was just glad I did and it was just amazing. 

As I walked down the lane between the beds 
The sweet smell of aroma fills my norsil 
As I lie on the floor looking at the sky
The smell surrounds me 
The bees and the butterflies goes by 
It was pure magical to be surrounded by beds of lavender, Imagine that

So Looking at the sky 
One cannot help but bask in the beauty that surrounds us 
The beauty of our God who created the flowers 
The sweet aroma of smell that captives my senses
 
My eyes look at the sky and the lavender plants around me
My nose smells the sweet fragments 
My ears hears the bees as they roam around 
The footsteps and laughs of the people 
What more beauty can define who the Lord is  

The Lord our God will dwell in the dark cloud
For He has built a temple in our hearts 
Through Christ Jesus we are a place that He can dwell in forever
Now therefore be courageous and walk in the land of the living

For the Lord our God is good
And His mercy endures forever

Well it will not be England if it didn’t rain
So we had loads of rain

Now today is another day
It is the First Monday of the month of August and 
today is a day as any other day to give thanks 
God is wonderful and no one like Him 
He hears our prayer and 
He has chosen you and I for Himself as the house of sacrifice
It blows my mind when I think of what the Lord has done, does and will always do

I sometimes forget it is not about me but about God. 
We live in His world and He is the Maker, what more to say. 
The Battle is already won 
We fight on the winning side 
Smile and be joyful in the Lord

When he shuts the Heavens 
There will be no rain 
Nothing you and I can do about it 
So be glad that you have life 

We have a compassionate God 
Who is slow to anger and abundant in Love

Lord, You have been our shelter in all generations

True Wisdom only comes from the Lord 
Seek it and you will find 
Value it and you will not be disappointed
The Lord our God is also a God of Justice
He will punish the wicked 
For no one will escape the day of judgement
Guard your heart above all else 

Worship the Lord in Spirit and truth 
It is better to have little with the fear of the Lord 
Than to have great treasure and an inner turmoil

I tell you the truth, 
Be wise and seek God’s will 
Be hungry for His knowledge 
Sit and worship Him in Spirit and truth 
For fools feeds on trash 
And that only brings turmoil and troubled heart
So I say be wise 
Meditate on His words daily 
He is closer than you think

I Love the Lord
I do Love the Lord 
He Loves me first
He loves me
He loves me
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

Dance of life

'So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you. 
Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires. 
Don’t be greedy, for a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world. '

Colossians 3:5 NLT
Life is a dance and the sound can be different 
What sound do we hear?

After all what gives us hope and joy
And what will be our proud reward and crown
As we stand before our Lord Jesus 

Greater is He that is me than he that is the world 
The dance of life continues as I woke up

Life is sweet and yet can have a bitter taste 
What is man that we should come before the Lord our God
Like a tree and the wind comes and breaks it into pieces 

As I step into the dance floor 
Moving from one hand to the other 
Forgetting our first Love 
Who has never forgotten us

When I was chosen it was love 
When I said Yes it was because He already said Yes

As I swirl around 
My mind keeps replaying things of the past 
And I know it is not from the Lord 
Yet I find myself entertaining the idea

And oh how I Love the Lord 
For He will always Love me and call out to me 
And in a split second only to open the Bible and be reminded 
Of who I am the words penetrate into my heart

The music stops 
The focus shifted 
A different sound was louder 
A teardrop and I was reminded

The words of Paul in Colossians three
Goes straight into my heart
Piercing every bone and bringing the body and mind to attention
For does it matter in this world
I have a new dress on and I don’t wish to get it stained 
It might get dirty as I run the race 
White does gets dirty very easily 
but it is nothing that has not already been removed 


So I say to myself we are new creation 
We are a new creation with new dress on
 
For it is by faith that we walk this earth 
For what does it matter what I am wearing 
All that matters is Christ Jesus and He lives in all of us 
So I will boast and get the dress dirty
I will let love rule my heart 

For what does it matter
Indeed what does it matter 

In this world, Christ overcame it all  
It is Christ that we live for and I put on this lovely dress
That is full of love
Patience that I don’t understand 
The music plays, the sound is different
  
As I swirl around and let the music wash over me 
As I give thanks through Christ Jesus to God the Father
 
Tomorrow is another day
Today is a day to dance with the Lord 
The Lord of justice and compassion 
He has no favourite 
So I will dance to sound of His music

Happy Friday and thank you for stopping by. 
It means a lot to me that you are here today
Have a wonderful day and blessed weekend
Be present in all things

"We cannot change what happens around us but we can change our responses." 
The flesh is weak, don't depend on it 🙂
This week was windy and rainy. 
So imagine my surprise on Thursday  to see the road blocked by a fallen tree. 
Thank God no one was hurt 
Only the poor car
Well can you imagine getting up seeing your car underneath the branches
Thank God for life and things in this world will fade 

Walking into the unknown

He has shown you, O man, what is good;
And what does the Lord require of you
But to do justly,
To love mercy 
And to walk humbly with your God?

Micah 6:8 NKJV

Life in the Unknown world continues… Welcome to the world of walking into unknown places and life is no different.

The story continues…

Stepping back as he walked to the door, now he knew that she was hiding something but what? That was the real question. She has all she needs to create the weapon and he has the manpower to keep an eye on her. 

Looking back at the first time she was kidnapped, she has definitely grown on him and indeed proved to be more valuable than any of the others. If she wants an escape, he needs to do what has to be done to protect his asset.

Getting to the door, he reaches his mind out and begins to wander off into old and familiar circles. He didn’t mind that, he had agreed to never mixed business and pleasure. 

The gods had won him to not get involved with the women. They seem to be his downfall, and all have the same emotions as he did. He had let his emotions get the better of him. He had been immortal before, and now fallen due to his lack of self control and power to dominate and control the world. He was just as vulnerable as all of them. He can now die and burn and feel emotions and love which seems to him the worst curse of all. 

It is so strange that love seems cruel of all, she doesn’t seem to know the effect and power she has more than Amiya. She is now a daughter and a friend taking care of her since she was a child had grown in him. She will certainly be the death of him and that seems to not bother him. 

He closed his eyes and sent out a mental call to her to check that he can still communicate with her. 

Cassa, as she answered. Apprehensive at first and scared. We are good, he added. It’s a bit late to be making friends now.

Everything is moving so fast, she continued..,

Oh? What do you mean?

Things are just happening and I can’t seem to think quickly or keep up with it. You know my feet just touched the water and now I am swimming, well more like drowning. Keeping with her was more than he could do and not laugh at the same time.

For the first time he appreciated her honesty in the mental world. He looked at her playing with her fingers, head down and…

You are right! He heard himself speak before he could think. What has gone into him? 

Things are moving fast, to tell you the truth I have to do something or else I will lose all that I have worked for and that includes you. 

What has gotten into him? He could sense her dropping the guards down a little. In this place both can’t hide much, all they can do is walk away and knowing that it was possible his only chance to let her be on his side was worth the risk and he had to try. 

Athan cursed.

Sorry but Cassa wins this time. Letting his guard down. 

I better leave you to it and I do trust you. 

Then I better get on with it, I have a long journey to complete, the sword is not going to make itself. Better start now. Cassa added as she cut the link. 

Do you need more time, he shouted out. 

Yes I do need extra two days and also no guards or any watch dogs around too. 

Fine, done. I will speak to you tomorrow evening, Athan added. Closing the door and taking his men with him. Well this is the stupidest thing I have done as he walked away leaving her knowing that she will kill him.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

I seem to like the short story in the moment 🙂

This is a journal of imaginative mind, fiction and also not much editing letting the words flow. Come back next week to see what happens. For as humans we need to be creative, use imagination and be the best version of ourself. Just like our Father wants us to be.

Who knows the mind of a human, only God!

I do love the Lord and I love that you took the time to read my blog. Bless you.

Have a wonderful day 🙂

Praises –

12:

'“And now arise, O Lord God, and enter your resting place, 
along with the Ark, the symbol of your power. 
May your priests, O Lord God, be clothed with salvation; 
may your loyal servants rejoice in your goodness.'

2 Chronicles 6:41 NIV
Then the LORD God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?”

I stand and look at the earth 
I see the herbs and the trees as they bear fruit
For You Lord, You made everything good

I will sing of all the wondrous things You have created
I will say to my soul 
Why do you hide away when things don’t go right?
Why do you hide away when the Lord calls you?

For when the Lord calls it is out of Love
For we shall return to You Lord 
For a thousand years in Your sight 

Is like yesterday when it is past
You have set our iniquity before You
Our secret sins in the light of Your countenance 

For the word You spoke became flesh 
Among us, He dwell giving us Grace
Grace to come before You in boldness 
For no more shame exists 

The earth is Yours and everything in it 
Wondrous works in the land as it bears fruits 
Awesome things in the sea beyond our imagination
The birds in the air never lack anything

As children of God, we never lack anything 
For You calm the storm 
So that its waves are still
And guide us to a place of peace
So we will give thanks to the Lord for His goodness
And for His wonderful works to all

Thank you for stopping by
God bless you in your journey

Secure yourself to the amazing Father
and the Lord of our Saviour Jesus Christ

Walk in His promises for Your life
Write them down

Say them out loud to yourself or anyone who will listen

Glorify His name especially in the bad weathers
His promises are trustworthy all the time

Spontaneous

Wordle 511 : Fiction: Here is an attempt.. Thanks for stopping by and reading. Stay bless 🙂

Rising early was not something 
One should do on holidays
But the heat had kept me up all night 

Opening the blinds 
Praise the Lord God for 
the sky was clear as the doorbell rang
 
Who could that be? 
Too early for breakfast..
No need to speculate with thoughts of what lies ahead
One almost forgot about the continuous ringing of the doorbell
And Whoever it was…
Is not giving up... as it continues

Would you take a hint and go away 
As far as everyone is concerned I am not here
So I looked out the window to enjoy the blue sky 
as the ring now turns to knock...
Alright I am coming...

What a lovely surprise at the door 
My lovely red dress was in his hands 
And a smile to make any girl think 
Thank you and I thought of ignoring the bell
As he smiles and walked past

One could almost forget he is always charming
Yes, I know I am not the only one… 
Far be it for me to look further into the future

One can only dream for I am now rekindle with my dress 
As spontaneous as this visit was 
The sparks did not fly 
Had a date at the theatre
Looking forward to wearing the dress

What an evening as the legendary band came to stage 
The heats was up as the voice got louder
The magic did happen and the sparks did fly 
What an evening!
What a day!
