Do Not be Afraid!

'Then Jesus said to them, 
“Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; 
there they will see me.” '

Matthew 28:10 NIV
Do not be afraid 
The words that consoles my heart 
The words that are sweet to my ears 
The words that makes the racing heart slow down

But I tell you not to resist an evil person
But whoever slaps you on the right cheek 
Turn the other to him also 
Do not be afraid 

It is amazing the upside down Kingdom of God
As things get back to normal 
Life become busy 
And the good works 
The building of the foundation 
Questions start to happen
Do I stop, just because!

So in the wisdom of the Lord 
I reflect on the journey 
This week, back to normal 
What is back to normal?

I have no idea, but I do know this is normal
People voted yesterday in UK
Yes I voted, I have always done the anti-social
Postal vote all the way 
At the comfort of my own house
Disappoints happening and the news 
And the blames, of the what if
I tell you, do not be afraid

The most amazing thing happened 
And I want to rejoice and scream and shout 
Glory to God in the highest through 
Christ Jesus I ran this week

Yes I am an active member of the society
I love the outdoors so a little story
See I stopped running ages ago 
I just walk and I was freed from this

What does that mean? 

Let us start 
See last week, on my usually walk around 
The park, this was on Thursday I broke into a run 
I don’t know how to express it 
Or what made me do it 
but it felt so good that I must have done 
More than three laps round the field
See I am processing girl and 
still getting to grips with this

Just a backup story 
I use to run early mornings 
As an early bird, we talking before six
and one day this guy was following me 
I didn’t know at the time

I don't know how to explain it, but
In my spirit I felt like I had to stop 
Turn off the headphones and listen 
So I did, and all my sense were heighten up

My heart was racing, 
And all I could say is I will never run again
Help me God, I will never run this early again 
If nothing happens, I was making all this promises
so I started to slow down and got ready

For what was to come, so
I turned just in time to see this strange man
Out of place and the surprise was gone
He stopped in his tracked 
I looked straight at him  
Could not see his face, under his hood 

But my God is so good, so with him standing 
The element of surprise is gone
He was frozen, and 
I turned around and 
I ran as fast as my legs could carry me home 
All the while looking over shoulder to make sure 
He didn’t follow me,

But he couldn’t do anything 
And I saw him turned back the other way 
And that was the end of my running
The enemy taught he has me cornered

The Lord is my Shepherd 
I shall not want  
He is my comforter and healer
And I stopped running it is more than five years now 

Could you believe it, I had forgotten all about it
We do not fight against flesh and blood 
The weapon of our warfare is not canal
My God will supply all my needs 
He will protect me

So I broke into a run and I was free 
Flying like a bird, the sun on face 
And a smile giving thanks to the Lord
I am still smiling for I am free 

It is crazy but I love the way our Lord 
Heals everyone in a different way
And a different time, all I have to do is 
Go to Him and He will give me rest

This all started because 
I made up my mind to read this book
By Kris Vallotton - Spirit Wars
I bought this book more than a year ago 
and never opened it 

I tell you this, because later on 
I got this same book in kindle for free 
What does that tell me? 
Read it young lady but I did not 

Don’t know why but I am glad I opened it

The first day I opened it was on the First of May
Not knowing that it opens the door to walk 
In with the Lord, to take out all the buried things 

This week has been a healing week
Every week is a healing week and 
to do what God wants me to do
Looking at the lies that I have come to believe 

Just getting into the scripture
We do not fight against flesh and blood 
Do not be afraid 

God is so amazing 
I tell you the Lord our God is awesome
When He is ready, when we obey 
It just happens and so I have started to run 
Doing five laps, it is small park 800m 

It feels so good, to start small 
I am so looking forward to doing it once a week

My mind is made up
My heart is bursting with JOY 

Now I can tell you I had forgotten all about this:

The feel of the winds on your face 
The cool breeze
The breath building up 
The faster you run 
The hearts beats ever so fast 

And as you slow down 

The heart slows 
The mind stops 
The legs moves with reach step

Yes I do love the outdoors 
And I have come to realize that we forget 
But God never forgets 

He loves us so much, from day one 
His promise was to free us and 
We have been freed 

Christ the Lover of our soul
The Bridegroom that sees the flaws 
And chose us, and said YES I want 
YOU, come with Me 
And all we have to do is say AMEN
And walk with Him 

I get to imagine the garden 
Running in it and free 
I love the garden 

That is just amazing to me
The LORD of hosts
He is the King of glory
To You, O Lord I lift my soul 
O my God I trust You
And I will not be afraid

“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

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

“Treasure Trove of Information”

"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

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. '

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

Walking into the unknown

For you are all sons of God through faith 
in Christ Jesus
Galatians 3:26

You are right, Nwe whispered. Eyes wide as she searches through the room.  

Now, Fulrose said in a calm voice, breathe, I have a solution. 

When she released that she was holding her breath she moved closer. How?

Well, this might not work, through the link – Fulrose swallowed – I have access to his life line and it is very risky but I can still sense it. 

Nwe looked skeptical, can you feel anything now? Well I mean I can..

A blade on her side, as Athan whispered… miss me. Are you guys talking about me.. Something was not right as he pulled us away looking at Fulrose. You are coming with me, her heart sank as they had been so focused on the task, each other and didn’t see him coming with more troops.  Fulrose moved with the new guests surrounding them. Do not even think of using it as it would destroy both of us, spoke Athan

As we walked out of the room, with the men walking in front and on the side and back. We got to the entrance that we came in to. 

On the short journey, men moved past us to the gate. A wave of relief washed over him as they got back to the gate, it will be over soon. He would hate to have to fight her on this side without seeing what goes on the other side. 

Open the gate, Athan whispered as she touched the gates and the door opened.

Excuse me, was this your plan all along? Nwe asked. 

She frowned as all the men left the cave into the world. 

No, the plan was to be with Amiya, I – 

But at that moment Fulrose spoke, you planned this all along to trap us here. With a non apologetic rather breathless voice. You followed me to this world as she continued. 

What is she talking about?

I recognise you- I must travel to the outside world and this is awkward as he spoke slowly with no hesitation and moved further away from us. 

Do not distress yourself, I must leave and we will meet again. Next time – 

And he was gone.

If I am right then we have a far bigger problem than the twenty men together running loose in the world. 

This is not good my friend – unfortunately I had blocked all ties to my land and did not recognise him until now. My focus was blurred and now I will make known to you that Athan was arrested for the most heinous crime ever known. We all thought he died only to find that he teleports, moves between worlds and pry on innocent people. 

Nonsense and very absurd, how can you be certain that he is the same man. I did not want it to be true because I have helped release him into our world. 

Lost a minute in thought as the door closed and sealing it with the sword essence across. Then, as though to myself, I spoke. 

We need to find him and also need some help with the twenty men. I have never set eyes on any of them and who knows what they will do. 

Fulrose, started we will know…

Double Celebration

Yesterday was my anniversary of starting a blog
Very crazy for I never taught I will be doing it for a year
The ideas, the creativeness which we all have in us 
So today is just a thank you to everyone 

Crazy and madness I am in person 
Love life and love to dance 
Love myself truly sometimes I have to stop it
It can lead to all kind of crazy 
I smile a lot even to myself 
I have come a long way to be sad 
For the world is temporary and not my home 
I only have one life so I make the most of it

It was one day looking in the miracle 
I distinctly felt the urge to smile at myself
crazy right, but it felt right 
I saw a different me and I felt the joy of seeing the smile 
And I have not stopped smiling 
It years of smiling for it brings joy to others 
The heart wants what the heart wants 
The joy of Lord is my strength 
Blessed be the Lord God
Who is always faithful
Who has helped me in this journey


Last year, I decided to do something crazy
Crazy than normal, well unusual
When I started, I had no idea what I was doing
I still don't just going with the flow from the heart
A big shout out to
A friend of mine Priya, she did the groundwork she said Yes
So she literally did all the work, she was my cheerleader
She taught I will be good at it and convinced me
All I did was found a name and we started the journey
Another thank you to Niketa who read the work at the beginning
She read and we chatted about it, encouraging me

And so this started and here I am on a this journey
A journey that I have loved and still do
I have found my passion and love of the Lord
Well it has grown and changed in ways that I never taught it will
The Lord has been my Salvation
My strength and my motivation

In this journey I have met other bloggers
Who have inspired me and also motivated me to write, thank you
Given me a chance to showcase my God given potential
So yesterday was a year and still think it is crazy of me
God bless you all
And Blessed be the Name of the Lord
Happy Independent day - Sierra Leone (Salone)
Capital City Freetown - the land of free slaves
Yesterday we celebrated independence from the UK  27 April 1961
Sixty years ago, freedown was given 

One of the things I love about Sierra Leone 
Is the people are always happy and smiley 
Regardless of what is happening around them 
We are all crazy people but I do love it

If you ever go to Sierra Leone be warned 
We have two seasons rainy and dry season
May to November is raining season
In the month of August avoid it 
Seven days of rain continuously without fail 
No one knows when 
But any other month it is lovely to visit 
And our dry season is December to May 
I do miss it, 2019 was the last time I visited
Can't wait because all the food are organic 
The goat is killed and cooked in front of you 
Well not killed in front of your eyes 
But you see them going to the back to do it 
You have chicken in the garden

It is a beautiful country is all I can say 
The land of freedom 
The beach is white sand 
The mountains are called Lion mountains
The food is fresh 
Lord God I thank You for Sierra Leone

	

The Garden!





Out of the ground
The Lord planted a garden
And came I and ruined the garden
Out of the ground 
The Lord made every tree grow
And they are pleasant to our eyes 

I came and cut it down
I came and burned it
I came and built with it
I came and use it as a weapon

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.

Walking into the unknown

'For “the earth is the Lord ’s, and everything in it.”'

1 Corinthians 10:26

It is Earth day, let us see the beauty of the earth as You see it Lord 
Your creation shows the beauty beyond words
The sun brings smiles to our face
The moon lets us know You are with us even in the darkness
The Earth is Yours and everything in it.

Fulrose? It was Nwe’s whisper. Nwe walked as she looked down at the sword, it was oozing a different colour and glowing brightly and blindly. Athan was focused on finding something and distracted. Fulrose, are you alright?

Fulrose pulled a ragged breath, as she was pulled behind Athan with an invisible cord twisted around her waist and tugged her heart. Maybe it was a dream, she wished it was and she knows it wasn’t. Walking close behind him as she has found out the further away from him the heart was pulled out of her chest. She fell on her knees as Athan ran because he had found what he was looking for. Letting out a sigh, It came out like a choking sob, as Nwe came closer to her. What is it?  She was struggling to breathe. What can I do? How can I help? 

Nothing.. Oh Nwe nothing can be done. Her words cut off as a dark form slipped into the room and the air changed. Something is not right as Fulrose slipped in and out of consciousness. Oh Fulrose, you must fight it. He has fallen into the pit and no longer himself. We need to fight together, he’s..

Fulrose started shaking and shook until Nwe taught her teeth will fall off, then she stopped. Wake up! Open your eyes, we have to fight together. The dark form stopped a few meters away, eyes that glowed pure white in the dark. His face looked transformed and not like the Athan we first met. 

Fulrose blinked and got up looking around, tell me what happened? She looked up and then at Athan and stood up. 

Athan spoke up, no one living has ever achieved what we have, for I am now the most powerful being and nothing can stop me. He taught about it as he walked around them, for he wanted them in his sight. He was not fully powerful yet and needed the sword to complete the transformation. We can work together and become an unstoppable team. 

Do you know how we can? Nwe asked. 

He thought about it as he looked at her, listening to the rhythmic heartbeat for a lie but could not find any or she had got good at concealing it. Fulrose has proven a strong opponent and a force to fear. She has broken the cord alone, and is looking stronger than before.

I am restored, said Fulrose. I can feel the magic of the sword and his magic too. 

Nwe came closer, What? 

Not the way you think, my magic is tied to him and then you. The consequence of what he did cannot go unpunished. 

What do you mean? 

Why do you look concerned? It is a good thing. 

I don’t know what you mean. Magic is not something we know about, looking at the sword. You should keep it. 

No, as Nwe was about to give her the sword. It is not mine to keep and see the glow that it gives belongs only to you. We all have our own responsibilities and it will not work if I took yours. In your hand, the sword will devour all flesh it comes into contact with like it did earlier. 

We have to find a way to defeat him…

Nothing compares to God!

'to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, 
through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.' 
Jude 1:25
capture the moments the flowers blowing in the wind to create an amazing effect in the sky
O Lord, You have searched me and known me
Everything there is to know about me You know
You understand every movement of my heart and soul
You understand every thoughts before it enters my mind

You know my sitting down and my rising up
You know the path I will take before I take it

You know all my ways 
Such knowledge is beyond my grasp
It is so high I cannot reach it
It is like flowers blowing in the wind

Oh how wonderful are Your ways 
The depth of Your riches both in wisdom and knowledge 
Is unsearchable and Your ways are untraceable
For who knows the mind of the Lord
 
Who has understood His thoughts 
Or who have come on anything like the generosity of God

Everything comes from Him 
Everything happens through Him 
Everything ends up in Him
 
For in the beginning was the word and word was with God 
Blessed be the name of the Lord forever and ever

For He is the Lord who
Reveals deep and secret things 
He knows what is in the darkness
And light dwells in Him

Your words are very precious to me
I keep it close to my heart 
I meditate on it
 
If I could count all the good things You have done 
They would be more in number than the sand 
When I wake up in the morning 
Your grace is sufficient for the day

“Treasure Trove of Information”

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

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.
