Dance of life

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

For what does it matter
Indeed what does it matter 

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

Be present in all things

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

Walking into the unknown

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

Micah 6:8 NKJV

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

The story continues…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Everything is moving so fast, she continued..,

Oh? What do you mean?

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

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

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

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

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

Athan cursed.

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

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

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

Do you need more time, he shouted out. 

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

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

Thanks so much for stopping by.

I seem to like the short story in the moment 🙂

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

Who knows the mind of a human, only God!

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

Have a wonderful day 🙂

Praises –


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thank you for stopping by
God bless you in your journey

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

Walk in His promises for Your life
Write them down

Say them out loud to yourself or anyone who will listen

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

“Treasure Trove of Information”

'For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, 
but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, 
against mighty powers in this dark world, 
and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.'

Ephesians 6:12 NIV
2016: Ryde-Wotton Bridge

Grace and peace to you from our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Wow, another week has started and I am delighted you can drop by. 

Welcome to my vault, hope you had a good weekend? For me?…

It is another Monday, there is a desirable treasure that when found at a great price, you will hide it and then sell all you have just so you can have it. Is it worth it? Absolutely!

Come let us sit and talk. This is a surprise, my weekend was out partying at a house party. It was meant to be lunch, arrived at 12 and ended up being also a dinner. It was just great to sit and enjoy lunch and dinner with friends.

Sunday was amazing, why? It was the first time we sang together. We were allowed to sing in love and to worship God and Saviour of our Lord Jesus Christ in Psalms and Hymns. 

Thought provoking sermon: Talked about the environment and knowing that God loves the environment. Going back to the beginning of Genesis 1. The simplicity of this chapter allows everyone that opens it to understand what the writer wants us to know. As far as the entire Bible is concerned, we must assume that God is there and He wants us to find Him, know Him and serve Him.

We cannot prove that He exists or not but we can hold on to the basic belief that God wants us to know Him and have faith in Him. Hebrews 11.

One of my favourite verse is John 1:1
In the beginning was the Word and the word was with God, 
and the Word was God. 
He has a heart that feels, 
He has a mind that thinks and can speak His thoughts. 
He makes decisions and sticks to them. 
What an awesome God with personality. 
He is definitely not an it, without Him nothing was made. 
He was not created but the Creator
God is a He and is a very personal God.

That was my take on the weekend. Relaxing and enjoying the present moment.

And also being aware of everything around me making sure I have my full armour on, sometimes I forget and the result can be fatal but I do have a merciful God who heals and corrects and guides.

Something I have come to learn about the armour of God: while you look at wearing it remember that it can be sabotaged by ourselves or the forces around us.

Cambriridge definition of Sabotage: Deliberately destroy, damage, or obstruct (something), especially for political or military advantage.

A way to be aware is Listening skills:

By forming a habit 

  1. Knowing what to do which means being aware
  2. Knowing how to do it meaning skill
  3. Knowing why to do it meaning motivation

Why push the boat out and do things differently?

Why not carry on as normal?

All journeys need to have a start and an end. And to get to the end starts with a single step but that step has to be taken in the right  direction.

Fortunately for us we have so much research and commentators have given us compass bearing and maps. 

This can lead to head bury 

Sabotage can also come from self as well as around us

An Example of self – procrastination 

James 4:14 – “How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog – it’s here a little while, then it gone”

Well, I can safely say I sometimes take my hands outside the boat 
or bury my head in the map. 

What good does it do? 

I don’t have long in this world 
It is not my home
Yet I forget and be a fool
Don't want to be one, for one day 
The fog will disappear like a thief in the night
When I least expect it
There will be no place to run

So I will lean not on my own understanding
But listen with the two ears 
Focus on the Lord daily 
Roll up my sleeves and do something with the talents given
Not brag about tomorrow
And above all remember the Lord in days of my youth 
When I have the strength to do it and willing to do it

Be bless knowing that:

'So also Christ was offered once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for him.'

Hebrews 9:28 NLT

Can I encourage you to enjoy the ride and to not be distracted easily.

Thank you for stopping by it means a lot to me.

Pray you have a wonderful week 🙂
We cannot control what happens around us, 
but we can control our responses.
Be bless and know that the Lord loves you

And I also pray that this verse refreshes you this week: 
I consider my life worth nothing to me; 
my only aim is to finish the race and 
complete the task the Lord Jesus has given 
me—the task of testifying to the 
good news of God’s grace. '
Acts 20:24 NIV


'My people, what have I done to you? 
How have I burdened you? 
Answer me. '

Micah 6:3 NIV
By the River Thames and a created background. What a beautiful sunny day
'“O my people, 
what have I done to you? 
What have I done to make you tired of me? 
Answer me!'

What a week, and looking at the words of God 
What have I done to you? 
Seeing it in the eyes of Jesus 
No words can come out 

The love He has for us 
He is living and active 
He is full of compassion 
And has every right to punish us

Yet He ask the question!
How can I answer? 
Can the clay tell it Master
How to create it?

Yet we seem to be masters of our destiny
We seem to the look the other way 
We seem to have complaints
We seem to want to mould the clay  

So I dare to ask myself? 
Shall a clay tell it creator what shape is required
For no words are spoken 
Until the clay porter gives it the mouth to speak

And our Master says
My sheep will hear my voice 
I will never leave you nor forsake you
Yet I dare to utter words too good for me

So I reflect on the words of the Creator 
I sit and look at the words and mediate 
I will dwell in the land of the living 
I will dwell in the present 

As in the days of my youth 
You protected me against the rebels
I will tell of Your wonders
You made me walk and the doctors 
Has no words to say but you are lucky 
And I know it wasn’t luck
It was the mighty hand of God 
The healing power of our Lord Jesus Christ
My Healer and Protector 

Examine me, O Lord, and prove me
Try my mind and my heart 
For Your lovingkindness is before me
And I have walked in Your truth 
The truth that is a light 
That shows the way to freedom

It is in You I trust
Be my Rock of refuge 
For words cannot answer Your questions
Things are too wonderful for me
For who am I to even look and answer 
For I do not understand anything
I have heard You with my ears 
And I come to You and repent 
By the blood of Jesus Christ 
Who is the First and the Last 
The holder of the keys of Hades and of death
I repent!

I look to You only
I worship You Lord Jesus 
For I do not fear death because You hold the key
You are the God of all 
I love You, LORD
