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

"We cannot change what happens around us but we can change our responses." 
The flesh is weak, don't depend on it.

“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

Happy May Day

May you see this month in its fullness
May you walk in the path  that the Lord has set for you
May you shine with the light inside of you
All this in Christ Jesus’ name. Amen
Freetown, Sierra Leone
Sometimes my mind wonder 
I look around me and see the houses 
I go for a walk and see the trees
I love trees, although I do have tree allergy 

My allergy is early of spring and somehow 
It gets better in the season 
By the middle of spring I feel better 
Well glory to the Father for the beautiful sight of the tree

A tree alone is looked over
A tree with its branches and flowers is adore
A tree full of life attracts others to itself
A tree only provides shades when it is covered with leaves
Freetown, Sierra Leone

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…

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.

“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
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.

Daisy – Delight that we are in spring and summer is round the corner!

Southwark Park
Oh what a sight 
To look and behold the wild
And commonly found wild flower 

They can withstand anything 
They tolerate the mowing, grazing and trampling 
They spring back to life 
Oh daisy, I love to look at your beauty

The beauty in the day’s eyes  
For in the day when the sun 
Rises my eyes will behold unto you
For at night I cannot see you 
Because you take a rest and close up 
So I will come and see your beauty in the daylight
For you bring smile to my face

Your persistent and widespread growth
Brings joy to all who look at you
You have been a joy to the children 
As they join the stalks together to make a 
beautiful chain or a headband 
Oh how when we grow up we forget the delight 
And so all we do is look and walk away

Let my eyes always see the beauty 
The strong and persistent beauty 
The tolerant that you show 
You withstand all the trampling 

I close my eyes and I am in field 
Of daisies and I run and let the sun be on my face
And my hands behold the beauty that is all around me

Thank you for stopping by, stop and see the beauty around

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.

Another Day of Thanksgiving!

Everyone LOOK!
Come and see the breathtaking 
wonders of our God
For He brings both ruin and revival.
He's the one who makes conflicts end
throughout  the earth,
breaking and burning 
every weapon of war

Psalms 46:8-9 TPT
How shall we sing the Lord's song
For it is good to sing praises to our God
For it is pleasant and Praise is beautiful

O Praise the Lord!
For His Mercy endures forever
Blessed be the Lord God Almighty

He created all creatures
Come and see the sky that shows the beauty
The beauty that is beyond words, that makes you breathless

Let us come before the Almighty in awe and wonder
Without electricity or gas, we have no fire
Without gossip we have love for one another

What a wonderful God we serve
Create in us a clean heart O God
To see Your glory and to reflect Your goodness 

Lord You have created the wise, so we see the world
Thank You God for the people that brings wisdom to us all
Thank You that they listen to You and share the Good news

To bring the body closer to You and glorify Your name
Thank You Lord that through Your wisdom a house is built
And our foundation is in You only

Thank You Father for the friendship we build along the way
For it is in this that when one is less able 
We have others to help in need

For a friend loves at all times 
And a brother is born in adversity
Thank You for the body of Christ 

That each part has a purpose 
And each part is different to help each other 
when in need we call upon Your Name

Oh give thanks to the Lord 
Make known His deeds among the peoples!
He is the Lord our God

Blessed be His name
Praise the Lord!
Sing to Him a new song

Egg-New Life

Burgess Park, Southwark, London: I love to find treasures like this
The Lord lives!
Bless be the rock!

The egg is unique 
Some are fertilised and some are not 
All eggs have a protective shell

This shells are awesome 
They can be flexible or inflexible 
Whatever egg it is 
Eggs have an organic vessel

It contains zygote in which an embryo develops 
Until it can survives on it own
A new life is born 
With it own character
And you see it grows to bring joy to others

Sometimes they bring sorrow 
But all life is life and it matters

Thank you for stopping by 🙂
Bermondsey beach, southwark, London: What a beautiful sight, seeing the city.

In the dark

I cry for what has happened 
I could not come to terms with it
I could not see the ending 

My eyes shed tears
My eyes closed 
My eyes saw a clear picture, focused on You

The Lord rebuked satan
The Lord who has chosen all, rebuke you!
The Lord looked at the filthy clothing on the High Priest

And He is Holy for He said to the angels, take off the filthy clothing 
And the Angels took the filthy clothing off

For He was covered with sins and iniquity of the world 
For He came from earth with the soil of dirty 

See I have removed your inequity 
See I have cloth Him with rich robes of Holiness
See I have crown Him with crown that reflect His Kingship

And now I have a High Priest in Holy of Holies
And now I know that no weapons formed against me will prosper
