Into the woods:

'and it sprouted and became a low, spreading vine. Its branches turned toward him, but its roots remained under it. So it became a vine and produced branches and put out leafy boughs. '

Ezekiel 17:6

Walk in the woods: I really do love to walk in strange places so it was no different for me to choose to do this on my birthday, if not for the dangers of the unknown I will be constantly on the walks at all hours my legs could take me.

So I use caution on my walks and am very alert and have no headphones: I walk and hear the songs of the birds and allow me to not miss the things around me. In the midst of the talking I notice the roots of a large tree. Yes talking not by myself for that would be strange and crazy, although I do think crazy is fun and madness is the world. The roots were dry and it was only from the fall I could see the roots. As I ponder at the strangeness and wonders of God. Even a fallen tree has a purpose.

In these new plants different little trees start to grow. 
The tree becomes a sit and a shelter for all that pass by

It needed to fall for it to become the shelter 
It needed to fall for it to become the rock 
It needed to fall for it to know how much love is a cost 

The fall restores faith and hope 
It is in Him that I am made strong in my weakness 

So as I walk I become restored not by works but knowing who Christ is in me 

On the floor I see everything around me 
I am made humble on the floor and I bow to You 
Lord For I see what Loving You is really like 

So I continue my journey 
And ponder this in my heart - create a clean heart Lord in me

Thank You Father for choosing me

Have a wonderful week 🙂

I pray that this verses 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. '

The joy of finding something new

May God Almighty bless you!

Thank God it Friday, this week is a week of discovery 
Nuggets online and objects offline
Every day is  a new day and this week was busy and also
Was a purposeful week 

Yes, the fun of walking 
Walking is such a peaceful experience and 
I am learning to listen to my inner voice 
well I mean quiet it down 

As I sat here and thought of Jacob 
In Genesis 28 and the taught of what was going into his mind 
left his family behind to a new adventure
And how God is so good 

Did he deserve the promise?
If God said so then yes 
As I was thinking about it, 
I don't even deserve this kind of Love

Now the wild child and 
All the unspeakable things that I did and sometimes do
God forgive me, if you wondering what the unspeakable thing is 
then that is between God and I, and should never be spoken out loud

So the short answer is
No I don't deserve it but I do accept it humbly and as I read God's promises 
To Jacob and how through Christ Jesus these promises now applied to us

I am the Lord God...
I will give to you and your descendants
I am with you and will keep you ...
I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken

The Lord is good and a stronghold 
In the day of trouble

So I let that sink into my heart with gladness and praise
For the God I serve is I AM and I WILL
Always in the present and future
For He is not dead or I did not make HIM with my hands

Thank You Jesus for the weekend to come.

Happy Friday and thank you for stopping by.
"We cannot change what happens around us but we can change our responses."

“Stretch one’s leg” – see the treasure

“This is what the Lord says—
Israel’s King and Redeemer, the LordAlmighty:
I am the first and I am the last;
apart from me there is no God.
Isaiah 44:6 NIV
As I walk and gaze at 
the beauty of God's creation
The treasure of having You Jesus and I will sell everything

Thank You Father,
Blessed be Your name
I sing to Him a new song

Walking in the cold of the evening
Thinking: you never know what treasures lie on the ground
One man's treasure can be another man's trash

As I Stand and enjoy the view
Out of the corner of my eye something moved, took the phone out
To get a closer look and risk to my fingers

For it was cold and zoom right in
only to see a man moving and very focused
taking a picture and as I turned to leave gave one looked back at him

Now I want to be that focus on You Lord
Not seeing the distraction around me
Eyes on You only

As I walked back
in the cold of the night
thoughts drifted away in awe and wonder

He is the Lord our God
Glory to His name
Make known His deeds among the peoples

Seek the Lord and His strength
Seek His face evermore!
Remember His marvelous works which He has done

Remember His mercy and forgiveness
In Christ Jesus we are made whole
Let us sing and praise His Holy Name.

Thank you all for last weeks of prayers. Appreciated and God bless.

Good bye 2020: Perfect Vision ??

Set a guard, O Lord , over my mouth; Keep watch over the door of my lips.
Do not incline my heart to any evil thing, 
To practice wicked works With men who work iniquity; 
And do not let me eat of their delicacies. Psalms 141: 3-4 NKJV

Www p5K Day 29,30 

Father, thank You for 2020
The perfect vision to You God
As we start the New Year 2021
Let my mouth think before it speaks
For You have given me one mouth 
And two ears for a reason 
To speak less and listen more
Help me to accomplish Your purpose in my life
In Jesus’ name, amen

Wow the end of 2020 what a year it has been.

January: I had a vision: 20:20 perfect vision 
I had all these plans
Many are the plans in a man’s heart 
But it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails (Proverbs 19:21)

One of the thing that became very clear to me 
As the year draws to close
Did I achieve all the plans that I set out 
No, but it was good to plan

Yes, because an intelligent person aims at wise action
But a fool will always starts off in many direction
Having direction laid the plan of action 
It was a detour because life is never straight 
And no one goes from A to B in a straight line

Knowing where we are headed
Will allow us to stay on solid ground 
Trusting in God for He knows best
Enabling us to choose the most excellent way of all
Moving with the wind.

One of the highlights of 20:20
John 20:20, In John 20:19 Jesus says
Peace be with you
Jesus appeared in 20:20 of John’s gospel 
To the disciples showing His hands and His side 
Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord
Now this year, so many of us have gone closer to the Lord 

We have seen the Lord 
His sides, His hands, His Love, and His healing among many
As I recall 2020 the perfect vision 
We see the dark and light in 20:20 
We see the healing side and know that God is still in the healing business
We see that many died but they will never be forgotten

In this Year it took me back to Ruth and Boaz
As we start to see that this was serious 
and not going away any time soon
I see people helping the less able 
Taking food to the elderly 
Buying a simple milk or connecting them to the internet to have chats with others
Yes I see a lot of Ruths finding ways to help their loved ones 
And strangers. The Love of GOD was present in 20:20 
And Boaz looking out for the ones that are working to make ends meet
It was not a good year with lots of job cuts 
but we had a furlong scheme that helped a little 
and I think it better than nothing
Some lost their jobs
There was so many Ruth’s and Boaz around
Helping others get by
I want to say THANK YOU

This 2020, well Britain has left the EU
What next? Only God knows
We will have to face the consequences of our decision 
Like Saul was chosen and He failed 
Let us pray that this will end with
us NOT in exile for forty years

Questions were asked as the year comes to an end
I have learned so much about myself
To never be discouraged and never give up when I stumble
It takes a lifetime to build a Christ-like character
For as David served the purpose of God in his generation
So will I in my generation

Never give up on yourself for God has not, 
Remember you will be dead if He did
Why give the enemy a footstool?

2021, whatever your plan is.. 
Trust it to God for His plans endures forever and 
He only wants what good for those who love Him

My personal highlights is blogging
I want to say THANK You to everyone
May this year end with you having that vision for life in 2021
Have a wonderful year end and May God smile at you everyday 

However you spend it
Enjoy the year end and I will see you 
Next Year by God's Grace and 
It has been a pleasure to share my thoughts
Thank you everyone
You are awesome!

Thank you for stopping by. May the Spirit cause this season to bring comfort, assurance and gladness as you go about your day. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Walk – Adjust the focus

You were God’s expensive purchase, paid for with tears of blood, 
so by all means, then, use your body to bring glory to God!
1 Corinthians 6:20 TPT

Www p5K Day 25, 26, 27,28: Wow.. the journey of the walk continues...
I am loving every minute of it. 

Hope you all had a wonderful and glorious Christmas and weekend too!

This Christmas was so different for everyone 
For me it was a new experience 
But before I dive in and forget the reason 
I want to give God the Praise

Praise the LORD
I will praise Him with my whole heart
The works of the Lord is great

Why was it different?
I was in a Tier 4 zone, 
to be honest I don’t even understand what it all means
But I do know no mixing of household

First time I slept in my own own bed on Christmas day
What are you talking about? 
Well see every Christmas I will pack an 
Overnight bag and stay at mum’s or my sister and kids

This time I stayed at mine 
And walked to my mum in the morning
Really, why? Because I am insane and I love walking
 
And I wanted to see if the streets will be empty too
I have never done it before on Christmas day
you know walking outside the house 
Well how was it? Hmmm

I was pleasantly surprise that a lot of people 
took this opportunity to walk outside and 
we were all smiling and wishing each other
Merry Christmas!, waving, Merry Christmas!, 
waving and smiling, Merry Christmas!

It felt like those singing movies that we love watching, 
really? yes and  I wanted to sing but...   
With my voice, you know singing is not one of my blessed gift 
It was a good walk and it felt magical waving, smiling...

After spending time with my family
No drama all just happy to see each other 
Then I got home and put the leftovers in the fridge

What can a girl do now?  
I decided to go out for a night walk, thanks be to GOD
The weather was nice, I mean not raining
So I picked up my Camera and left the house

With my camera for a change because there was no rain
Forgotten the feel and look of my camera 
I haven’t used it for so long
I had got so use to the phone camera 
I had to stand and just adjusting taking shots 
Making sure everything was right
ISO speeds, Aperture and it made me feel alive again 

In the midst of this picture taking 
Refocusing and taking pics and adjusting 
Life has been full of adjustment this year

We all had to refocus, get  the right 
shutter speed, with all the bubbles and the distance from everyone
Wow God it has been terrifying, wonderful, and eye opener
The list goes on and on 
With the emotions ups and downs
But there is one thing that has never change 

You my LORD,
No matter where we are God is always focus on us 
The right shutter speed, aperture
 
His focus is always right the picture is never blurred 
He does not need to adjust any setting 
For He knows exactly where we are and what time to
take that picture and it is always at the right angle

Nothing is a surprise to Him
When I cry, grumble, pray, worship, 
laugh and want to pull my hair out
It does not surprise Him

So I smile at my God because His angle is perfect
And He smiles back for His Son will shine at each one of us 
daily, it might be that it seems the darkness is too
much but He is never out of focus

I might try to run because I lean on my own understanding 
but He is there 
If I run to the deepest and darkest place in my house
closing my door to the world
Not wanting to contract the virus 
Or not wanting to see anyone
He is there in my house

I go out and in the midst of the virus helping the sick 
He is right there with me 
He will always have the right focus
 
So Father today I am adjusting my focus and 
pointing the lens only on You Jesus 
For this year has made me adjust my angles 
The lens was pointing sideways, downwards and 
self focus never in Your direction

I have been so focus on the things of the world 
that the lens have got blurred 
So as I readjust the lens and looking 
I see my bridegroom waiting for me and 
He has never left the spot I left Him

Smiling and walking towards His arms wide opened 
leading me to You Father
What a glorious day that will be when I finally get to the end
First I need to walk this marathon and 
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
 
To receive the power and riches and wisdom
And strength and honour and glory 
and blessing 
What a beautiful smile awaits me
You are worthy O LORD 
To receive the glory and POWER

Thank you for stopping by. May the Spirit cause this season to bring comfort, assurance and gladness as you go about your day. In Jesus Name, Amen.

A Joyful Christmas

“Look,” he said, 
“I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.”
 Acts 7:56 NIV
Www p5K Day 24: Merry Christmas to all

For to us a Son is born and to us a Son is given
The GOOD NEWS that brings a smile to all
For GOD so LOVED the world 
That He gave us HIS ONE and ONLY SON

In wonder and amazement
Smiling, for it brings joy to me each time
Lost for words and all I can do 

GOD is worship You in Spirit and truth
I adore YOU for all the wondrous things You do
Let the world come and see that LORD is good
His mercy endures forever

As the wise men came and the FIRST response was to worship You 
I bow down and Surrender my all to You
I worship You in Spirit and in truth for You alone are Holy

The wise men not only bow and worship You but they gave gifts
Looking at the sky in awe
What must I give You, Lord for being so good to me?
I will surrender my crowns to You, and 

I will pray in Your name because You have saved me
I will walk before the Lord 
In the land of the living

You are worthy, O Lord
To receive glory and honour and power
For You created all things 
And by Your will they exist and were created

Worthy is the Lamb who came down to save us
To receive power and riches and wisdom
And strength and honour and glory and blessing!

Thank you for stopping by. May the Spirit cause this season to bring comfort, assurance and gladness as you go about your day. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Happy Wednesday

Your Majesty, you are the king of kings. 
The God of heaven has given you dominion and power and might and glory;
Daniel 2:37 NIV
Www p5K Day 23 - Celebration and Anticipation

So the ark of the tabernacle now dwells within us
We are Yours O’ Lord, You have chosen everyone of us 
All glory and Honour to YOU JESUS
Let Your Glory shine in this time of darkness

As I reflect on that day, it was worst than now
Everyone needed to be registered, To his own city
Yet You did not have a place in the inn to be born
Showing us what matters to You, not the material of the world

But the lonely, that You visited them first to spread the GOOD NEWS
Today we face a situation where no one is allowed to go outside 
Well the restrictions are so tight 
We are faced with bubbles, ever changing rules

The path is never straight forward 
But You Lord have given us the light that never goes out
For my eyes have seen Your Salvation 
Which You have prepared before the face of all people

The light brings revelation to us Gentiles
And the Glory to Your people Israel
Glory to His Holy Name
Let the hearts of all that seek Him rejoice

Seek His face everyday 
Seek the Lord and His strength
Seek Him and you will find Him

Blessed be the Lord God 
From everlasting to everlasting
Let us celebrate the birth of Christ
As I twirl around and smile 

Thank you for stopping by. May the Spirit cause this season to bring comfort, assurance and gladness as you go about your day. In Jesus Name, Amen.

As I look forward to Christmas, the book of Daniel points me to the Lord Jesus and brings me inspiration and refelction of the gospels. How Christ Jesus came to this world! God is so GOOD. Be blessed.

Walk & Enjoy His Love

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. 
Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. 1 John 4:16 NIV

Www p5K Day 22 

Stretching as I sat on the bed
Hands up and thinking Tier 4
Don't even understand what this means
Thank You Lord for another day

This is all so confusing to me 
Glad You are not 
It not long to go until Christmas
I somehow find myself giggling like a child 

It is good for your mental well-being I heard
Is it? Hmm … Well at least I can entertain myself
I think it insane but then Einstein said 
Doing something over and over again expecting a different result is insane

I pray that the lockdown over and over again does not make me insane 
Although I do think I am already insane, but brings me closer to You as I
Find creative way to pass the time
And be productive too

Wow, I am in anticipation and joyful 
Thinking of Your Love for us 
This journey started before the creation of the world
You knew what we will do yet still

You created us, gave us the world
We destroyed the trust 
You forgive us and came and dwell among us
We nailed You to the cross

Yet again You showed us what it means 
To love when You rose from the dead
God You are Pure LOVE
All I can do is sit and gaze at Your beauty

Thank you for stopping by. May the Spirit cause this season to bring comfort, assurance and gladness as you go about your day. In Jesus Name, Amen.

The Individual

And so the Living Expression became a man and lived among us! 
And we gazed upon the splendor of his glory, 
the glory of the One and Only who came from 
the Father overflowing with tender mercy and truth!
 John 1:14 TPT
Www p5K Day 21: Yes it amazes me that The Creator likes me 

You will always go in search of the one.
From Adam, Lord You created just him and giving him
That relationship with You and then Eve came
Making it corporately together to have a relationship as a couple with You
Showing us that individually we matter to You as well as together

You have created us uniquely that no two people are the same
O LORD, You are my God
I will exalt Your Name
For You have done wonderful things
For when I was lost, You found me

Lord thank You for finding the time to sit with me 
By the well and give me the water of life 
For noticing me in the crowd when I was lost
For forgiving me when I don't deserve it

You stop by each time, to have a chat with me 
No one sees but You do in midst of everything 
You hear the whisper even when it so loud around me
And we can hear Your voice if we can only listen

I see You in the crowd and You turn around and smile
With hands stretch out 
For You are the Lord and nothing is too hard for You
For as we celebrate the coming of the Lord
 
Knowing that we are living because we found grace 
Through Your Son Jesus  
We know that You have saved us 
John was not the light 

We are here to show who the light is just like John 
So let Your light shine brightly 
without even a little bit of my shadow in the way
Let the WORD come ALIVE in the WORLD

Thank you for stopping by. May the Spirit cause this season to bring comfort, assurance and gladness as you go about your day. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Walking on the Winning side

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” 
says the Lord God – the one who is, and who was, and who is still to come – the All-Powerful!  
Revelation 1:8 NET
Always be ready to capture the moments
Www p5K Day 20 - A beautiful Sunday, not raining

It is another day, LORD
Thank You for making me see this day
Waking to the news that we are in Tier 4
What does that mean?

This is all so confusing to me
The changes are too much 
What do I do? 
Looking up in the sky 

For You give us what we need at the proper time
You have opened Your hands to satisfy our desires
Lord we do believe in You
It does get hard as the circumstances change around us

As I sit and look at the four corners of the walls
Dearing to believe the magic You have given us 
I look to You Yahweh 
For Your Kingdom is eternal

The testing of Christmas, the light 
One cannot help but wonder what is this about
Blessed be the Rock of my Salvation 
For You have trained me to fight and not be passive

You are the foundation of my life
My rescuing Knight and my shield 
My comforter and my loving kindness
Your marvelous doings are headline news

Lord, come down from Heaven 
Light the place on fire and ignite the flame of healing
Lord, reach from the skies to the deepest of the sea 
Pull me out of the deep ocean of hate

Out of the grip of this virus 
That wants to bring more hate, to the world
O Lord let us sing a new song to You 
The  God who saves us
 
The God who rescues His servants 
The God who is merciful and Gracious
Not quick to anger but full of unconditional Love
Father, You are good to all and take care of all Your Creation 

Thank you for stopping by. May the Spirit cause this season to bring comfort, assurance and gladness as you go about your day. In Jesus Name, Amen.

I wanted to update: Taking a break on Nugget of Info, Wednesdays and Fridays break until 2021. Will continue this kind of unusual Advent of walking with the Lord. Stay blessed.

Dead Town

At this I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers and sisters who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For it is the Spirit of prophecy who bears testimony to Jesus.” Revelation 19:10 NIV
Www p5K - Day 18 and Day 19

Yesterday was Friday, well I’m sure you don’t need the commentary 
But I do love to state the obvious 
Why? Just because it gets your eyes rolling
Let's talk about our day?

What? About another weather forecast? 
To be honest I never knew that the U.K. is a raining country 
I mean I forgot but I seem to see a lot of rain
Taught you love the rain, I do it brings the inner child out of me

Makes me want to run and scream and shout 
Laughing as I grabbed my raincoat I walked out of the house 
The town is like a ghost town 
The silent was so defending I could hear everything around me 
The restaurants all close and no one in sight
The sound was so loud it felt like the roar of a Lion
I could not help but say a little prayer for the business owners 
The staff who are been furlough
What a year? Lord I am very grateful

I know it is bad and Father it is all too much 
The people are losing their living wages 
Let this year end with a new found mindset for each of us
That allows us to see things differently 
That makes us curious and intentional about our life
As we go into tighter restrictions 

Harsh but necessary as the cases rise up
Christmas will now be spent alone 
Not fun but looking forward to it 
It is more than likely to be on zoom

By God’s grace
I think it better than nothing
You are with each and everyone one of us 
Filling that gap that we miss, 
no one is an island and only You can fill the space Jesus 

So I will end with a praise to You and thanks
For it is in You that I can never be thirsty 
It is in You that I have real life 
Where everyone is welcome
 
“Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.
“Praise our God, all you his servants, 
you who fear him, both great and small!”
If the enemy is to be put to shame and hiding 
Then let us WORSHIP and PRAISE the KING of kings

Thank you for stopping by. May the Spirit cause this season to bring comfort, assurance and gladness as you go about your day. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Another normal day…

Praise the Lord , the God of our ancestors, 
who made the king want to beautify the Temple of the Lord in Jerusalem! 
Ezra 7:27 NLT
Www p5K - Day 17

I keep thinking to myself
It might seem I am getting attached to this walking
Well yes it day 17 and we go out daily of course you are
You keep posting every time
Oh we have people around

Hello everyone it is new day
As I got up out of my bed thinking about yesterday
It is a privilege and honour to serve in the house of God 
I would rather be a servant in His house than a queen of the world

To be honest I was a big drama queen 
Very self centred and all about me 
As I grow closer to God the me turns to we
The m is now w flipped, crazy it just one letter

I am still a work in progress
Only God can change the heart of anyone
When He was ready for the world to be on time out
Here we are, all we can do is sit and worship Him

With praise and thanks, Let us sing a song to our LORD: 
“He is so good! His faithful love for everyone endures forever!” 
And we shall shout out loud
Praising the Lord because the foundation of the Lord ’s Temple had been laid.

Jesus is our foundation and King over all
Celebrate and worship the King of Kings
For in Him we have a relationship with God
Let us give thanks for His Love endures forever

Thank you for stopping by. May the Spirit cause this season to bring comfort, assurance and gladness as you go about your day. In Jesus Name, Amen.
