Strength and Courage

Now it happened after the death of Moses the servant of the Lord , 
that the Lord spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, 
Moses’ servant (attendant), saying, “Moses My servant is dead; 
now therefore arise [to take his place], cross over this Jordan, 
you and all this people, 
into the land which I am giving to them, to the sons of Israel. 
Joshua 1:1-2 AMP
It takes strength to get out of the water and courage to face humans who are not vegetarians and see you as food.
It takes strength and courage together 
To get things done
It also takes courage to speak up but
You need the strength to speak

When things go wrong
which sometimes happens
It takes courage and strength to face it

So I pray to my God for 
strength and courage 
For it is only from Him I can get it
As I fail and crumble and I am discourage

I am reminder of Joshua 
Joshua was courageous
But He needed GOD

He needed GOD to remind him 
I need constant reminder  Father
To be Strong and courageous 
To lean not on my own understanding

Lord I submit to You 
When You say Your Grace is sufficient 
For me, I don’t always listen 

Because when I walk far away from You 
You are still with me and 
You give me the courage to complete the task 
Not only that but You give me the strength because
When I am weak, I feel the 
Power of You giving me that strength to take the step
A step that I have got myself into

A step that requires strength 
A step that requires faith in You
A step that only Your unconditional Love can get me out off
And LORD you hold my right hand to finish the task each time

Nevertheless You have given me a choice to depend
On You and find strength in You 
For I need You Lord 

Like a baby needs constant care from it mother 
I NEED You Father
As I face the year ahead of me 
I don't know what will happen 

If life has taught me anything
It is unpredictable and I can only depend on you 
To  give me courage and strength 
To take the step and leap of faith

In Christ Jesus 
My Saviour
And  my Redeemer

“Treasure trove of information”

But he answered me, 
“My grace is always more than enough for you, 
and my power finds its full expression through your weakness.” 
So I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when 
I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of 
Christ living in me.
 2 Corinthians 12:9 TPT
It takes courage to look for a treasure
As I was looking into my treasures today, look what came about 
Courage wow COURAGE it takes courage to even type this. 
We all have courage, if you get out of bed everyday that takes 
courage to face the day for no one knows what lies ahead of them.

Courage is not the absence of fear BUT the commitment to overcome it 
Courage is required in our everyday life and must be constant 
Courage is also tiny pieces of fear glued together 

Tips below to help take the leap of faith into your next adventure:

Setting a standard that is scary
Going to University was scary for me, 
but I sat down and applied and got in. 
Was the journey easy? No it was not. 
I had to study when it was the right time
I was also trying to fit in with others. 

My last year was a disaster, 
I forgot my purpose of going to university so I failed 
Yes I failed, one subject and I could not get my degree. 
Did I walk away? No, it took courage to sit down 
and get the Physic degree I wanted.
It also took courage to get a job not related to what I studied. 

In this journey not only did I learn to be courageous 
but I also learned to be humbled. 
I did not have any experience so I asked and sat and listen 
One of many treasures that I hold to heart is 
we serve a big GOD, so setting a goal that is 
unattainable is what He specialises in. 
If I can attain it then it is not courage 
but if I go for something that is scary and makes me think:
Think about it, I walk away, I come back, 
I walk away again, and I come back again and 
I think to myself, oh no I can’t do this, 
then it is worth doing it 

Innovation reward: 
Rewards help with the growth and as 
humans having an incentive makes us want 
to set another mountain to climb.

Rewards helps us climb the mountain
BUT we should not do things for rewards: 
So what do I mean by Innovation rewards?
Taking part in the workplace, church group, 
university and anywhere with small groups
It gives a sense of purpose in life 
It also gives motivation to be part of the team

The key is getting involved where we find ourselves
In any group it is always good to contribute 
By giving ideas:
no idea is stupid, 
if you have thought about it then 
the chances are someone else has and 
it just happens that you have the courage to speak up 

Secondly, also getting a qualification or 
studying more into the topic areas is very good for the brain
Finding ways to improve the mind is a reward

Pursue the right opportunities 
Not every risk is a good one, sometimes it is good to say no
Learning to say no is the wisdom we need for life. 
You can never please everyone, if you try you end up pleasing no one.
If it is too good to be true then it is - one of the easiest clues. 
Opportunities will come, see the wisdom to choose the right one.

Learning to delegate:
It takes courage to let go and relinquish control
Not every job has to be done by you
Having the wisdom to know when to loose the string 
and trusting others to complete the task at hand takes a huge courage 
especially if you are someone who wants to be in control all the time. 

It is not easy but holding the string and letting it go 
very slowly will eventually become naturally to let the string go
This is something I am still getting the grips off
The string is still in my hand 
Because we sometimes put so much pressure on ourselves 
for the illusion of perfection. 
When nothing is perfect, 
we work not for perfection but for progress. 

What is the one thing you have put to one side? 
For tomorrow, tomorrow never comes
So no time like the present to face the giant
It takes strength and courage to 
Sling throw a stone at a giant

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.

HAPPY FRIDAY – Let the light shine

The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world.
John 1:9 NIV
Wow it is Christmas Next week wow 
Just pure joy to the LORD for it is in Him 
And for HIM that we celebrate the coming of the Lord

God You are so so so GOOD
Words cannot express how we feel about YOU
For in the midst of everything YOU gave us LIFE
LIFE that comes with a LIGHT to brighten the day

The season that is winter and dark
But the LIGHT of Jesus brings so much JOY to people
In this winter season when all is dark 
Your light is shining so bright that we cannot help 
but be very generous to one another

The Light makes us sing for JOY
The Light make us give to others not expecting anything
The Light makes us see the needs around us
The Light cannot be hidden because it is impossible to hide JOY

So O LORD I will Praise You 
Though You were angry with me 
Your anger is turned away and You comfort me
Behold, God is my Salvation

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.

For You feed the birds in the air
The fish in the sea
And the animals on land

Through Your Son Jesus Christ. Amen

My Precious SHOE!

Every Scripture has been inspired by the Holy Spirit, 
the breath of God. It will empower you by its instruction and correction, 
giving you the strength to take the right direction 
and lead you deeper into the path of godliness. 
2 Timothy 3:16 TPT
The Bible, I have come to LOVE
It is not like the shoes I buy
where I wore it once and never again

It has become my everyday shoe
It is the shoe that never wears out
No matter how many times I use it

The sole is always brand NEW
The design is top of the MARKET
It is Priceless and fits every OCCASION

It goes with all my outfits
It goes with all my emotions
It is a lamp that lights my path

It teaches me where to step
It shows me what love is
It shows me that flaws are accepted and loved

It calls me to come as I am
It calls me to drink from the water of life
It gives me the courage

The more I stay with it
The more strength I get
The braver I become

Yes I do love the Bible
Yes it has become my nugget of information
Yes it is sharper than any sword

Guess what- WHAT? I can never stop reading it
Guess what- WHAT? Did you know it is the one BOOK that the magic is real
Guess what- WHAT? It is the one BOOK that gives me practical advice

I have the Holy Spirit to help me
I have the help of the church- the body
I have the benefit of reason - my mind

The Bible help me to get closer to GOD
Leading me to know who JESUS is
Allowing the Holy Spirit to help me and guide me

Yes it is not like any shoe
But a very precious shoe
It has given me a heart transplant because

God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.
Thank You Father that You cared for me
You look out for me always.

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.

Inspired by Paul: 1 Corinthians 2:2–16; Ephesians 3:18, NRSV and Romans 14:4

ADVENT – Little things matters

You will live in joy and peace. 
The mountains and hills will burst into song, 
and the trees of the field will clap their hands! 
Isaiah 55:12 NLT

Southwark Park
Www p5K - Day 15

Who would have taught 
I will still be doing this, 
I didn't and it is  day fifteen
I did not think I will be but then I love challenges

Which is why I said YES 
I must tell you something, come closer
I enjoy looking around and noticing the trees 
And stopping to smell the flowers

Well actually it's looking at the birds and hear them sing
You must try it and the best part is 
Walking but with no headphones on
It feels like a little treat for myself 

And I think I hear a lot better these days 
It is always good to find a way to be kind to myself
Giving little gifts and thanking God and appreciate what I have
I cannot give what I don’t have

This Advent has made me release that 
Little things matter to God 
And He wants me to appreciate it 
Enjoy the people around me and 

Give what I have to others
Be it money or talk or smile 
Love others as He loves me.
For He has given us His Son 

Jesus the name above any other name
At the whisper of that name all demons bow
He is worthy of praise
Thank You Father for as Your ways 

Are higher than mine 
So are Your thoughts than my taughts
I will listen to You 
You know what is best for me

Help me to hear Your voice only
And to walk with You daily
In the Name of Jesus Christ 

Walking in the rain

“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
Therefore I hope in Him!”
Lamentations 3:24 NKJV
Wwwp5K day 14: just my taught as I type on the phone app. 

Thank You Jesus for You alone are
the True Shepherd

Today is a raining day
Yes it is not a weather forecast
Should I say it is
Seems to rain most days this December

Working from home has some perks
Don’t need to run to catch the train
or bus but I do need to have an internet
Not today, wow what do I do with myself

No internet for a whole day
I could get angry or
just get out of the house
Good idea let’s go for a walk

Grabbed my raincoat and camera
Looks like it might rain
Managed a few shot
And as luck will have it

It did start to rain
Should I say poured down
As I stood under the shade of a house
Waiting for the rain to calm down

My mind as usual starts to wonder off
Today is not your day
So I decided to walk back under rain
It was not a pleasant walk

Amazing did not get soaked bad
Got home and still no internet
Well I could write don’t need internet
Could read don’t also need internet

Settle for reading:
“There are six things
the Lord hates— no,
seven things he detests:

haughty eyes, a lying tongue,
hands that kill the innocent,
a heart that plots evil,
feet that race to do wrong,

a false witness who pours out lies,
a person who sows discord in a family.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭6:16-19‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Thank You Father for today another day
To remind me of Your goodness and mercy
To also show me the things that You hate
Help me Lord Jesus to walk with You, amen.

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.

“Nugget of Information”

Then Mordecai left the king’s presence, 
wearing the royal robe of blue and white, 
the great crown of gold, and an outer cloak of fine linen and purple. 
And the people of Susa celebrated the new decree. Esther 8:15 NLT

It is always a great time to celebrate:

One thing I have learned is God encourages us to celebrate and give thanks:

Celebration can be answered prayers: Why celebrate?
It builds our faith increasing our love for God
Also to praise God’s name and celebrate His goodness
A great example of celebration is in LUKE 2 when Christ Jesus was born, 
the angels celebrated:
“Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.”
 Luke 2:14 NLT

This season I will join John (the one that Jesus Loves) invitation:
To ascend and enter Revelation and know that I am the disciple that Jesus Loves
To see the greatness and glory of God
Let Jesus be the centre of my universe
Lay my crowns before the throne and give Him glory
Look at His beauty, and see what He wants me to do and be in obedience 

There is always a celebration in Heaven when one person gives their life to Jesus
When the prodigal son returned to the Father. The Father celebrated:
And kill the calf we have been fattening. We must celebrate with a feast,
Luke 15:23 NLT

Is about showing that goodness of God in our lives 
and how He has called us out of darkness into His wonderful light 
Jesus is always inviting us to come and celebrate with Him.
Today I take that offer.

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.

ADVENT – Peace and prosperity to you!

The king answered Daniel and said, 
“Most certainly your God is the God of gods and 
the Lord of kings and a revealer of mysteries, 
since you have been able to reveal this mystery!” 
Daniel 2:47 AMP
Www p5K - Day 13

The message: “Peace and prosperity to you!
“I want you all to know about the miraculous signs and 
wonders the Most High God has performed for me.

When I was twelve, had an accident while playing 
Out in the fields and my left foot was injured very badly
The doctors took one looked at me after surgery and 
said you are a very lucky young lady
We could have amputated your foot 
Sigh.. shaking my head and just remembering
Wow this is insane I had forgotten all about it
What a God we serve, It was not luck 
BUT the favour of God 
And as I was reading Daniel 4
Thinking of the greatness of God 
This memory came back.
I could not walk for a long time
And now all I do is walk
Walking is something I love to do so much 

Our Father and God is very good 
How great are His signs, How Powerful His wonders! 
His kingdom will last forever, His rule through all generations.
Thank You Father for all glory and honour belong to You.

Thank You Father for the ultimate miraculously sign and wonder - JESUS CHRIST 

I will see you tomorrow
If the Lord wills.

WALK – Two are better than one

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed.
 Ecclesiastes 4:9 NLT
Www p5K - Day 11
Thank God it is the weekend.
Again, on the earth I saw something else that has no purpose.

It was not a raining day as I step outside
Meeting a friend for a long walk
So mentally preparing for the walk
and also the restaurants eating

Mask, checked and off I go
Wow I have not seen her since March in person
Hey standing looking at each other very awkward 
Do we hug or do we not?

So we decided to smile and start walking
Time went by so quickly and our feet were tired after two hours
This is what happens when two women start to talk 
We lost track of time

So we decided to have dinner looking around
for a suitable place to eat and also a quiet place to chat
Not surprise it was not busy in the City of London
and the lights did not give the Christmas warmth

The town does not feel like Christmas
It felt grey and cloudy
This is like Zelena, the Wicked Witch of the West
came and took the green lights with her

I can only see the red lights and they are on
The fun has stopped with only the red lights
But hang on a moment 
There is joy for we have the Son of Man

Who is the light of the world 
He is the First and the Last 
He is the living one
Who was dead and now alive forever and ever

And guess what there is more good news 
He holds the keys of death and the grave
This year is the right time to celebrate 
What He came to do and fulfill

Glory to God in the highest
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!

Www p5K - Day 12

Thank You Father for another day
Blessed is the Lord God
That He has looked on His servant and shown mercy

He has sent Jesus 
To give lights to those who sit in darkness
To guide our feet into the way of peace

The day is over and glory to the Almighty God.
If He wills, I shall see you tomorrow
In the mean time...

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.

Main – Had Grilled Salmon Fillet, served with Chilli and a Salad of Heritage
Tomatoes, Pickles, Green Kalamata Olives and Toasted Walnuts very tasty – would recommend

Desert – Sun dried apricot stuffed with almond, pistachio and cream. Be warn it is creamy if you looking to lose weight and also not eating sugar then avoid it. Otherwise it was delicious

Prosecco – The chating and walking was what made the evening enjoyable.

Also not a word on COVID19 it was a silent agreement.
