“Walking into the unknown”

We give thanks to God always for you all,
making mention of you in our prayers.
1 Thessalonians 1:2 NKJV

Fulrose, started we will know them by the footprints left behind. Sometimes, however, they will come out for two reasons. Firstly their powers need refilling which means they do get hungry easily. Secondly, they cannot control themselves. 

A short silence followed, then a buzz from the sword vibrating as they both looked. 

If what you say is right then we need to be very watchful – and find them, says Nwe

Walking to the outside world, the bright light blinding them, the street filled with life and discussions. Cars passing by, but Nwe’s voice rose slightly above it. A systematic search is needed for the city. She turned and looked at Fulrose, we’ll need help. 

Fulrose’s brows rose and followed Nwe’s gaze. I have known you for two years and never met anyone but you. Where are we getting help from? 

Don’t you worry about that, Nwe replied. If we want help, it will take time to organise. I suggest we start tomorrow morning. Today we get something to eat and some rest. 

A day won’t make much difference, as Nwe continued. But rest and a full stomach will make a difference to my thinking. 

Fulrose nodded slowly, I agree. We, as someone with a sword and power within us have authority to enter and see in the night. Our search will be hampered if we don’t have the sword. We will need to do the search at night, but look for help in the day.

We really will need to be on the lookout, they will also try and disguise themselves. The illusion will not last but I have something for us to disguise ourselves when we travel at night, said Fulrose looking up and smiling at Nwe as they got close to the house and entered.

Athan waved a hand and the illusion vanished. He had followed from a distance, and needed to get close to hear but that would mean risking being seen. When he looked up again as they entered the house, he found Cassa looking at him appraisingly 

What are we going to do with them once we attack now? Cassa asked.

Thanks so much for stopping by. This is a journal of imaginative mind, fiction. 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!

Have a wonderful day 🙂

“Don’t just sit on the Rock”:

It is good that one should hope and wait quietly 
For the Salvation of the Lord

Lamentation 3:26 NKJV
Ecology Park, Southwark. London

Reflect on His Glory:

Holy, Holy, Holy
Lord God Almighty
The True Shepherd
 
Who searches for His sheep 
Who seeks them out

He lives the ninety-nine to find the one
He looks for all the scattered sheep

In the places where they are scattered

He looks even when it is a cloudy day or the dark days 
He brings the light with Him, for He is the light

He seeks out all the lost and delivers them 
He binds the broken and strengthen what was weak

He is a fair Judge who shows no partiality
Wisdom and understanding comes from Him

He gives counsel and might to all who obey Him
It is in Him we find the Spirit of knowledge 
It is in Him that we delight in the fear of the Lord

And in that day and even now 
Oh Lord, we will praise You

Behold You are our salvation

Who came to save us from all preys
Who gives us peace without human understanding
Who gives us showers of blessings in its season

We will trust in You and not be afraid
For Your Kingdom is upside down

Holy, Holy, Holy
The Lord God Almighty
Who is The True Shepherd
 
Blessed be His Name

God bless you in your journey

Secure yourself to the amazing Father

Walk in His promises for Your life
Write them down

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

"For no word from God will ever fail.” 

Luke 1:37 NIV


Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour: Welcome all 🙂

Apologies, It is a late one today. Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
Ecological Park, Bermondsey, Southwark. London.

First Monday in May. 

To everything there is a season. A time for every purpose under the Heavens.

The Vault: Today I want to be outside the vault, I love stories. To hear stories and absorb them requires listening:

Yesterday I spent the whole day outside my house. Walking with a friend and ending in the Ecology Park: This park always amazes me, and if you are ever in bermondsey walk in this park and see the greens even for a city it looks amazing.

Not sure about you, this year seems to be going fast. I have this tradition in me that I give thanks for the month ahead because I am walking by faith and every obstacle that may come my way I give to the Lord. Cast all my cares and burdens to Him 

This is one of my favourite verses and there is something about reading it with a new set of eyes and seeing it in a different light. 

"Matthew 6:25-34- DO NOT WORRY"

Familiarity is a curse in my opinion when it comes to scriptures, hear me out. 
The reasons is 
We lose the meaning behind the message. 
We glance over words 

It does not touch the heart anymore
It stops in the mind 

The doors are shut 
It bounces like a ball in our hand as we play with it mindless

The Bible
The Words spoken 
Are God words
So take it seriously 

Do we listen to the words? 

So reflecting on the words in Luke 1:26-38 and looking at the reaction of Mary (Mother of Jesus) as she listens to what the angel says, she ponders it in her heart and in response to her listening skills comes questions. Questions comes answers

Listen equals reflection and then the right questions to get the right answers.

One of the reasons why  we don’t listen well is that we tend not to apply all of our brain power and heart to the exercise. Listening is an exercise and must be done daily to optimise its skills, or see the growth of it.

Most of the time, half or three-quarters of our brain could very well be doing something else while we are reading or listening to someone speak.

In the content of listening to the bible: there will be other things going on in the same space. 

Maybe there are people walking about
Maybe your phone lights up, telling you that you have received a text
Maybe there’s music in the room 
Maybe there’s television in the background 

Meanwhile you thinking of the to-do list 
The next meeting 
What am I going to say to my friend or family when I see them in the next hour
What will I have for breakfast or lunch or dinner

Do everything you can to tune all of this out
And be completely present 

Studying the word in the right conditions will likely improve your focus. 
And both in preparation for the study

When studying in a group:
I find out that note taking is best when listening

Notes allow you to organise and process information in a way that makes it most likely that you can us this information afterward.

But don’t fall into the temptation of concentrating on the note taking that you forget listening to the words. But make sure you are really listening. Guess what you are not a secretary, you not around as someone who is receiving information for later use. Therefore it is very important to hear what others are saying:

Take notes of what is emphasised 
Make sure you understand what the points the speaker is making and if 
opportunity arises ask questions.

After notes taking, ensure you review the notes immediately 
It helps you retain the information much more effectively than if you don't read the notes for days
As an extra bonus 
You will be able to supplement your notes with anything you might have missed while taking the notes 
because the information will still be fresh in your mind.

Remember God loves you and nothing we do surprises Him. He requires our attention and obedience and that is listening. Not a massive lists of things to do but “Let it be to me according to Your word”

My soul will magnify the Lord
And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Saviour 
I will rejoice in Your Salvation 

No one is Holy like the Lord
For there is none like You
Nor is there any rock like our God

Pray you have a wonderful week 🙂

And I also pray that this verse refreshes you this week: 
Acts 20:24 TLV
'However, I don’t consider my life of any value, 
except that I might finish my course and 
the office I received from the Lord Yeshua , 
to declare the Good News of the grace of God. '

Wonders!

Jesus was handed over to be crucified for the forgiveness of our sins
and was raised back to life to prove that he had made us right with God!
Romans 4:25 TPT
The wonders of God
Are you are not glad that His ways 
Are not our ways 
I am very glad, sometimes I don’t like it

So this week, it just been looking at wonders of the Lord 
The testimonies of all 
The growth of people

I love learning and so this week is learning week
Came to understand what Paul meant 
In the Bible, the Book of Romans 

Sometimes you want to do good 
I know that I should do it
I have no doubt this is the right thing
My mind tells, the Holy Spirit nuge me 
Scriptures come to my mind
Do I do it, NO 

But I don’t understand why I do not do it 
Yes, it is a nod, a shake in the head 
I did it again, I sit in silence and sigh
Why? Yeh I guess I look at my Lord 
I don’t understand, help me God
Not trying to justify 

But something in me just would not let me
For I do what I hate and practice it 

The flesh is weak and governed by the laws
The flesh is ruled by the laws 

For the Lord our God died so that Grace abounds within me
Grace triumph over the laws
For He came not to abolish it 
But to accomplish 
So sometimes it happens 

To teach us 
To correct us, 
To depend on Him 

For His Grace is all we need
For I am dead to sin 
And alive to God
For Christ said it is finish, the death 
that He died, He died to sin once and for all
But the life that He lives, He lives to God 
What a wonderful news 
So I glorify the Name above all names

Wonders are what you do
Wonders are what I see daily

Wonders is seeing the sunrise in the morning 
Feeling the breeze as I walk in the day

Wonders is seeing sunset in the evening 
And the chill of the breeze in my bones

Wonders never stop in all things 
Wonders is seeing a baby grow up

Wonders is knowing that I am the apple of Your eye
Wonders is knowing I am blessed

So I conclude this madness 
The flesh is the flesh and will be the flesh
So I will not set my mind on the things of the flesh
For it is weak, that I have come to understand

Madness I tell, it is not easy and that is the fun of it 
The Life with our Lord is challenging

I will not lean on my own understanding
I will set my eyes on You Lord 

For in You I have received the Spirit of adoption 
And I will cry out loud Abba Father
For I am joint heir with You Lord

In all the madness why run away from it 
If indeed we suffer with You Lord 
That we may also be glorified together
I Love the sound of that
I thank God through Christ Jesus our Lord

Happy Friday and thank you for stopping by.

“Treasure Trove of Information”

'Think of it this way: 
If a man owns a hundred sheep and one lamb wanders away and is lost, 
won’t he leave the ninety-nine grazing the hillside and thoroughly search for the one lost lamb? '

Matthew 18:12 TPT
Well hello and welcome to the madness of the world. 
The earth was without form and void and darkness was on the face of the deep
The Spirit of God walks and spoke light into beings
The light shines in the darkness and 
The darkness did not comprehend it
The light penetrates into hearts and 
The word became flesh and tabernacled in our hearts 

How wonderful is our God! 


Hope you had a great weekend and also had a day of rest.
I actually napped, very surprised because my watched recorded it 
Could you believe it as I rested my head on the sofa after church
I mean after stuffing my face with crisps the weight of it 
Was so heavy that my mind could not lay awake 
My stomach could not stand in the weight 
So I lie down and the food digested 
My eyes close and the sweet dreams come
It is in Him that we have breath
Welcome to my "Treasure Trove of Information"
Last Monday in April wow 

So I give thanks to the Almighty and Saviour
We can never stop saying thank YOU

The voice of one crying in the wilderness 
Make straight the way of the Lord 
John 1:23b

So in my thanks to the Lord, 
I choose some words that stirs me up
Get me out of my chair 
Make me smile 
Make me dance 
Make me cry 
Nothing like the words of the Lord to bring out all the emotions in me

My heart yearns for the Lord so this is a worship of thanks 
And a reflection of His words 
Walking in the cool of the day with the Lord 
I love to imagine that in the garden

What do you seek?... think about it
Come and see.. The world of madness come and see
Follow me .. no more words needed, no reason needed
Woman, believe Me...for now we worship in Spirit and in truth 

Who is like You Lord, for it is in You 
We have life 
We have the living water
We have the bread of life 

I don’t need to see signs and wonders 
You do make me laugh and smile and provoke my senses 
For sometimes the science in me wonders the words You speak 
So I sit and listen 
Your words raises my eyebrow in wonder and awe 
For I wanted to hear more, what does this mean?
“I am the bread of life”
Okay, what does it mean?

You picked my curiosity for I wanted to eat this bread and have a life with You
You even show me the things that I hide to myself 
You love me in spite of all I have done

Yes the Lord is good
And He has invited us to sit and have breakfast
So I sit and let the words overflow 
As You spoke the words to Simon, son of Jonah
“Do you Love Me more than these?”
Now my first response is “Yes, You know I love You”

The words penetrate in my heart 
“More than these”
For it is a life of growth in Love 
Committed to the journey of life 
Because work, family will come 
Are you committed?
Love grows as the plant grows when watered
Lord, how amazing to reflect 
“Feed my lambs”
For it starts as a lamb 
Greater is He that is in me than he that is the world
In Your power and might 
The lamb is fed and cared for 
The lamb is now a sheep
We tend the sheep
Then we fed the sheep

Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You
Let such as Love Your Salvation say continually 
The Lord be magnified 
But I am poor and needy
Yet the Lord thinks of me
You are my help and deliverer
For You have sent someone to care for me
To feed me and give me shelter
Blessed is he who considers the poor
The Lord will deliver Him in time of trouble

As the wisdom of our Lord is apparent 
I have come to learned what a sheep is

Sheep become stressed when isolated; this stress is reduced if they are provided with a mirror, indicating that the sight of other sheep reduces stress. ~ according to Wikipedia

And so we thank You for community 
For You will always leave the ninety-ninety to find the one
Because we are together
The Lord of hosts is with us 
The God of Jacob is our refuge

Let everyone that has breath Praise the Lord

The Lord fights for us!

'How truly wonderful and delightful it is to see brothers and sisters living together in sweet unity! 
It’s as precious as the sacred scented oil flowing from the head of the high priest Aaron, 
dripping down upon his beard and running all the way down to the hem of his priestly robes. 
This harmony can be compared to the dew dripping from Mount Hermon, 
which flows down upon the hills of Zion. 
Indeed, that is where Yahweh has decreed his blessings will be found, 
the promise of life forevermore!'

Psalms 133:1-3 TPT
Blessed are those who delight in the Lord
For it is in Him we find rest 

Though we see the week unfold
We sit and think and memories unfold 
All the hurt comes to the surface 
Indeed we know the true 

We are but mere mortals 
We cry out to our God to prove the innocence 
Of our loved ones
Though we wished to dispute 
Though they wished to silence

We take the case to our God 
His wisdom is profound 
His power is vast
Who has resisted Him and come out unscathed?

He moves the mountains
So in the midst of trails 
My mind look back to last year 
As I walked and felt the unloving nature of the heart of men

For God has created us 
We are His children 
He moves the mountains without us knowing 
He shakes the earth from its place 

He shines light in the darkness 
He speaks to the sun and it does not shine
He seals off the light of the stars 
He sees the heart of all

I have loved the week 
The sun had shine even with a cold wind
The sun brings a smile to my face 
The sun brings a smile to people’s faces

We look in anticipation and pleaded 
With our Lord for mercy 
We waited for a long time 
Even though we were innocent

We do not believe He would give us a hearing 
And we felt the crush with a storm 
Our wounds multiply as we look and wait 
As we hold our breath  

We are overwhelmed with misery 
If it is a matter of strength, it is only found in Him 
He is mighty, and a matter of justice, 
Who can challenge Him? No one is like our God

Only for a moment as wait 
I forget the troubles of the world 
I reflected on the events of the week 
I have found that events brings memories 

So I focus on my plants 
My plants are coming nicely and 
I decided to add another tree to the list 
Already have a pear and now cherry Duo

Can't wait to see them grow
So the week unfold and verdict is set 
A relief brings back a sigh 
And the journey to restoration starts 

For today we do not forget but let us 
Sing, O daughters of the earth 
Shout and pray!
Be glad and rejoice with all your heart
For we have waited for the Lord 

They have done violence to the Law 
The Lord is righteous in our midst 
He will do no unrighteousness 
Every morning He brings His justice to light

He never fails 
But the unjust knows no shame 
Therefore we will wait on the Lord 
For the Lord is always near to all

The mighty One will save 
He will rejoice over us with gladness
He will quiet us with His Love
He will rejoice over us with His singing

For early in the morning 
I hear the birds singing 
He comforts those who mourn
So our eyes look to the Lord our God

Blessed are the merciful
For they shall obtain more mercy.

Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God,
believe also in me.
In my Father's House are many mansions; 
if it were not so, I would have told you. 
I go to prepare  a place for you
John 14:1-2
My mouse mat, had it since 2002 from Prof. Gunther Von Hagens Körperwelten Fascination Beneath the Surface “the exhibition”

Hello and Welcome. Hope you had a good weekend 🙂

It has been a while since I went into the vault. A little story, I like stories, for life is one big story that happens on a daily basis and it is amazing to be part of this whole journey with Jesus. I love the look of the HEART and I love the spelling of it. You get so many little nuggets out of this one thing. The mind can stop working and you can still be kind of alive but the HEART is the main vessel when it stops that is it.

Below is a basic definition of the heart and a little inspired proverbs in my own words. This is information only! OH yes I do love the HUMAN body very fascinating!

THE HEART:

The heart is a hollow, muscular organ that is developed  by a membranous sac and is located behind the sternum. The size is about the size of a closed fist and is located between the lungs in the middle compartment of the chest and weighs an average of 300 grams. The heart pumps approx 70 ml of blood per beat 70 times per minute when at rest. 

As any other part of the organ, the heart has its own blood vessels that provide blood to nourish it which are called the Coronary system. When blocked or interrupted by an obstruction to the coronary artery can result in heart attack. (Dr. Angelina Walley, M.D. The Human Body – Anatomy and Function)

Heart failure is defined as a condition in which the heart is unable to pump enough blood to meet the demands of the body.

There are few illnesses that are not affected by diet and nutritional status, although some are affected more directly than others. In fact, some of the major diseases of the modern age such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and cancer are linked to poor nutrition.

In 2014 researchers pooled the results of 72 studies that had looked at the link between fatty acids and coronary disease (including heart attack, coronary heart disease and angina). They found no significant evidence that saturated fats increase the risk of heart disease and no significant evidence that omega-6 and omega-3 polyunsaturated fats protect the heart.

The researchers concluded that “current evidence does not clearly support cardiovascular guidelines that encourage high consumption of polyunsaturated fatty acids and low consumption of total saturated fats”.

So I sit and reflect on the human HEART

The physically organ thought of as 
being the seat of the affections

The modern day we see and look around 
But do we see with our eyes 
Do we hear with our ears 
The HEART wants what it wants 

It is in the HEART that we HEAR with our EAR
It is in the HEART that ART CREATIVITY comes out
It is in the HEART the HEAT of our passion is shown
It is in the HEART that only GOD know what goes on

As I reflect on the heart of what matters to God, don't be a fool. 
Life is life, you can be a fool 
If one walks around with head buried in the sand or 
you can be the one that trusts in the Lord and 
walks knowing that He saves not fearing but walking with HIM


In our generations with so many news:

Don’t be empty and fill 
Yourself with empty words

Don’t be lacking 
By listening to the gossip of others or participating in them

Don’t be unsatisfied 
By exploiting the poor, for the Lord sees and protects

Don’t be needy 
By envying the wicked

Don’t be wanting 
By becoming a borrower

Don't feel inadequate
For it is the glory of our God and Father that conceals things from us.

Thank you for stopping by.
This is inspired by the wonderful words of Book of Proverbs. As I reflect on the words of the King and how that reflects to our present moments. 

How do I see things that reflect the glory of our God? 
It is not easy, life in general is not easy. Ups and downs but that is life. 
All madness but I love it. Feel free to reflect and absorb it, we live in a world of quick solutions. 
It is always good to sit and enjoy the food, I mean chew the food, savour it and it will surprise you. 
You can taste all the flavours, it arises from all the sensors we have.

Pleasure of the week!

Ask the Lord for rain in the springtime;
It is the Lord who sends the thunderstorms.
He gives showers of rain to all people,
And plants of the field to everyone.
Zechariah 10:1 NIV
Happy Friday and thank You Lord 
Faithful You are 
The weather was ever changing 
The entire week was warm, cold and raining 

In one day, the mysteries of the world 
Yesterday as I stepped out of my house 
One side was raining on the same street the other side was dry 
My front door floor was both dry and wet 
What a sight 

So I look at the floor and smiled 
Looked at the sky 
The beauty of the creator 
And my entire walk was singing and smiling 
Different songs combined together my own paraphrase version

Your mercy, O Lord is in the Heavens
Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds 
Your righteousness is like the great mountains
Your judgment are deeper than the ocean
O Lord You preserve man and beast
Your faithfulness is forever

Great is Your faithfulness
Great is Your faithfulness
Morning by morning 
New mercies I see
All I have needed Your hand has provided 

So I worshiped with these few lines in my head 
The whole hour and came home to listen to it-earworm
“Great is Thy faithfulness”
Thank the Lord for internet
The amazing thing is, so many versions online 
But I prefer the old version song

The way to defeat the enemy 
Worship, so I reflect on Yahweh 
I worshiped Him and I have decided to do some potted planting 
I pray for my plants and I was reminded of Jonah 
So I prayed to God to let me see the world in
His eyes with compassion for all creatures 
And the world I live in

So in my head, I started to think
Plants are easy they don’t argue back 
I try to argue, well I try to reason in my heart 
The grass weathers, the plants fade
But the word of God stands forever

All things are the beauty of God 
So I am documenting my plant and not getting attached to it 
They will die, eventually everything dies 
Maybe I should get a dog 
Then it is another responsibility
Will see may be I do want a dog, I like cats
But I don’t want to be the cat lady
Preference is dog if any animal to get my affection 
Sorry cats!

So this week my eyes has seen 
The King in his beauty and I have come 
To view the land that stretches far with all the beautiful flowers
The heavens are telling of the glory of God
And the expanse is declaring the work of His hands
The sky shows the majestic King  
In the beginning was the word and the word was with God 
The earth was without form 
The Lord spoke and behold we look at the beauty of His creation daily

So I smiled to my God 
I dance to my Father 
I sing to the Almighty 
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
To receive power and riches and wisdom
And strength and honour and glory and blessing

Thank You for stopping by. 
It means so much to me and 
May the light in you shine bright always
May the Name of our God be glorify
Have a restful weekend
In the Name of Jesus
Amen
One side rain and the other dry, it was an amazing site. Also seeing the plants grow is truly something to step out of the house for. Got some of the plants as gifts for my birthday and bought some.

Walking into the unknown!

'Then Adonai descended in the cloud, stood with him there, as he called on the Name of Adonai . 
Then Adonai passed before him, and proclaimed, 
“ Adonai , Adonai , the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, 
and abundant in lovingkindness and truth, showing mercy to a thousand generations, 
forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, yet by no means leaving the guilty unpunished, 
but bringing the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, 
to the third and fourth generation.” '
Exodus 34:5-7

The Story continues….as my imagination runs wild, we see in the eyes of Folrose, Nwe, Amiya and Athan. Welcome to the next part!

Athan, standing still not knowing what to say or how to react, looked past Amiya and straight at Fulrose. In silence they stood what seemed like hours was only a couple of minutes. So inching a little away only to see Amiya pushed to the floor as Athan jumped over, and where do you think you are going? Looking at Amiya who was as white as the daisy flowers that surrounded us,her eyes were wide open and lifeless and her dress was soaked in blood,  he continued. Yes, I knew she would eventually betray me so I took measures when I was out of her sight. Showing off what looks like a vest, it reflects any weapons used against it. See I cast a spell if you try to harm, you will only be killing yourself with a smirked look on his face. So truly she killed herself because of her own selfishness, we had a good thing going and I would have done anything for her.

Then Nwe turned and raised her eyes and looked and observed four men moving to the back of her and two on each side and four in the front. With an attempt to come at once, closing her eyes with a focus on the centre of the sword. Feeling the energy of the room, she could see each energy radiating from each man as they got nervous the energy was stronger. Feeding into the energy surrounding them, the sword became one in her hand and the dance started. Moving with music of the sword she reached the four men at the back with a swift strike and the music stopped. 

For she was now one with the sword, something had changed in the sword, the black flame now surrounded her hand and reflected on her eyes. The dance was different and she could completely let go and move to the music. Hands raised high she moved to the centre and the men got into position for another attack. They had no hope but she could start to see that some were thinking before acting.

Nwe stood and let the music move her mind and body, watching the men’s headlong rush and with a battle cry that was blocked by the sound of the music. She met each dance, some men stumbled, some tried to grope with outstretched hands but it was futile. For the sword has tasted the enemy’s blood, men fell to the fall. As the cries grew the dance grew stronger and the intensity, for she could see her soul was getting stronger with the sword at each death. The progress of the men started to slow as the first set of men fell to the floor, the others were now at a predicament. As it moved with the flow killing all its path some stopped and wondered but could not escape the song, for the sword was blind to the cries. And as its path was down, at last relief overflowed me. Then I looked up and outside Fulrose was at the mercy of Athan as they walked in. 

Athan looked very pleased as any one would look at a child, walking to the fireplace with Fulrose by his side. Along the way, Fulrose filled her in on how everything had gone and ran a few things by her that will be problematic. How was she to kill someone with a spelled vest which might be protecting his entire body. The head doesn’t seem to be protected, says the sword. We can knock him out and don’t do anything that will kill him as Fulrose injected. He has now done something to me that will affect me if you kill him, I will die. What? Yes, what we need is to get his mind of the situation at hand. Something to give him a reason to occupy his mind for a while. Any ideas?

Athan looked around, occupied and was very much looking for something as this could be the distraction we need. What is the matter? As he stopped and looked at both of us. Why are you two looking like that? What are you scheming about? Did she tell you the consequence of killing me?

Continuing to look at the walls..

Thanks so much for stopping by. This is a journal of imaginative mind, fiction. 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!

Have a wonderful day 🙂

“Treasure Trove of Information”

'A psalm of David. Adonai , who may dwell in Your tent? Who may live on Your holy mountain? The one who walks with integrity, who does what is right, and speaks truth in his heart, '

Psalms 15:1-2 TLV

Good Morning or afternoon or evening. You are welcomed doesn’t matter the time. 

Hope and pray you had a good Easter, the celebration of Christ Jesus, He is RISEN! Now that is good news. I learned something about the Easter egg to look at it from a different point, eggs represent a new life and so does Easter for all. It is not in the Bible but sure like the idea of new life, new hope and knowing that this is not it but life doesn’t end on earth, wow what a glorious day that will be. Praise be to the Father, Jesus Chirst and the Holy Spirit for walking with us in this journey.

Come with me, yes if this your first time then you should know. Life is a story and you can make it fun or miserable. The choice is yours. 

Come let us sit in the vault of treasure today. 

Thank you for stopping by, please note that this is information only. So I reflect on the way we process food and the different ways they are made. So today I look at Fermentation:

What is Fermentation?

Fermentation is used everywhere in the world, throughout history, it is simply the form of food preservation that does not require any heat or artificial energy source.

With no oxygen, microbes (or microorganism is a microscopic organism which may exist in a single-celled form or a colony cells) can convert sugars into acids, alcohol and gas

Why do we ferment foods?

Fermentation in food processing – converting carbohydrates to alcohol or organic acids using microorganisms – yeasts or bacteria under anaerobic conditions

Fermentation microbes are often the same as the ones found in the gut, so eating fermented food can be a way to top up the gut flora.

Fermentation are not only used to preserve foods but Ferment foods are used because they serve: 

  1. To enrich the diet through development of a diversity of flavours, aromas and textures in food substrates
  1. To preserve substantial amounts of food through lattice acid, alcohol, acetic acid and alkaline fermentations
  1.  To enrich food substrates with protein, essential amino acids and vitamins
  1. To eliminate anti nutrients 
  1. To reduce cooking time and the associated use of fuel

Some of foods that are Fermented:

Different methods of fermentation are used in breadmaking, alcoholic drinks and vinegar production, making yogurts and cheeses; pickling fruits and vegetables, curing meats; making soy and fish sauces; softening olives and removing bitterness and the production of chocolate from cocoa beans

Fermented milk:

Milk has a very short shelf-life but when fermented can last for months. This range from yogurt fermented for a few hours to large cheeses prepared over many months.

Fermented soya

Soya beans have high levels of protein and oil which is extracted as a kind of milk. Fermented soya also produce diverse outcome similar to milk such as miso paste used in soups and seasoning to tempeh which is a cultural soya bean cake

Fermented cucumber

Cucumbers are turned into pickles using lattice acid bacteria and brine with five to eight percent salt concentrated

Thank you for stopping by
Pray you have a wonderful week 🙂

And I also pray that this verse refreshes you this week: 
Acts 20:24 TLV
'However, I don’t consider my life of any value, 
except that I might finish my course and 
the office I received from the Lord Yeshua , 
to declare the Good News of the grace of God. '

Cold but sunny!

'Your eyes will see the king in his beauty and view a land that stretches afar. '
Isaiah 33:17NIV
Southwark park entrance it smells so nice and also you get to see the beauty of the flowers and trees
Oh come let us sing 
and make a joyful sound to the Lord
 
It has been cold this week 
What a week? I am not so sure 
Are we in spring or winter
For as I opened the blinds to let the sun in
To my surprise it was snowing 
In April not rain but snow 

So I had time to reflect 
Look at the detail of Christ 
Few words kept coming across my eyes 
Why do you seek? He asked His parents
Man shall not live by bread alone 
But by every word of God

The temptation of the world 
Cannot be overcome alone
For it is in Christ that we are set free 
For though I walk through the valley
Or thrown into the fire I am never alone

Launch out into the deep and let down 
Your nets for a catch
So I walk into the deep 
A deep end that requires LOVE
Not a feeling for it did pass

For when I had no feeling 
I knew what love really was 
Love is an action that is incredibly patient
Love does not reason in it heart
But believes the best in people 
It goes out of it way to give without expecting a return

So I listen to the music 
And I dance to it as it snows outside 
And then I braved it outside 
Why? I like to walk 
With winter coats and hats on for the sun was out but cold 
Even with the cold under the sunlight I feel the warmth 
It made me smile and forget the troubles
As I cast all my cares and troubles to Him
And as I remember the season of resurrection 

Who do you say I am?
The Christ of God
Then pick up your cross and follow me
No looking back 
Follow me 

Do not be afraid to follow me 
For I will show You who to fear
Fear God, who has the power to cast your 
Soul into hell, Yes do fear Him!
In reverent fear 
Therefore let Your words be few 
Better not to vow than to vow and not pay
For the Lord is faithful 
His grace abounds in each of us
He is slow to anger and abandoning in Love

Yes I did decide to buy a foam roller
Then I wonder why this late because they are incredible
Getting a massage, wow so I feel all the aches and pains 
In a good way, see I get pleased very easily
Little things make my eyes smile

Oh come let us sing 
Praise to the Lord!

Walking into the unknown

“neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:39‬ ‭NIV‬‬

The Story continues….as my imagination runs wild, we see in the eyes of Folrose, Nwe Amiya and Athan. Welcome to the next part, series of short stories!

How are we going to get away with this, running as fast as little legs could carry her. Nwe is been nothing but trouble ever since meeting her, all the adventures they have done together as Florose taught.  She continued to run and since leaving home life has been full of adventure. 

Remembering the day that she decided to live the manor and venture into the world of humans. In the woods, as she spoke to her dear father and mother. I am going into the human world, looking at the two and in the hopes to be stopped. But they both spoke together, that is great honey. You will love it and make sure you come back in five years. What, and why? Looking at both for some explanation as to why there was a time limit to my stay in the human, as this genuinely puzzled me. 

Why would I come back if I like it? 

I didn’t want to come back and I certainly was not about to let them know this. I have studied these humans and they seem nice, how wrong was I. Chased by a mad man and woman with dogs and looking for a way to escape. 

It has been five years today as I recall the promise made to my parents to go back, never thought I would disobey a direct order under these circumstances. Now I do wish I was in the land of peace and looking at the beautiful forest. 

The beautiful forest was hidden from the world and everyone was free, we could see how the humans were destroying the land. It is parallel to ours and we have the forest and large trees, our houses are built on the trees, the flowers and the water falls on every corner to help sustain the plants. 

A storm of rage and panic pushed into my chest as we came to the end of the line. Why are you doing this? Mind racing, and why follow me? I have nothing to give. As they both stopped, Amiya looked at me in silent curiosity for a moment, I have my reasons, I’m sorry Athan that you must suffer in this. It was not the plan and not my purpose but something has to be done.
