'Think of it this way:
If a man owns a hundred sheep and one lamb wanders away and is lost,
won’t he leave the ninety-nine grazing the hillside and thoroughly search for the one lost lamb? '
Matthew 18:12 TPT
Well hello and welcome to the madness of the world.
The earth was without form and void and darkness was on the face of the deep
The Spirit of God walks and spoke light into beings
The light shines in the darkness and
The darkness did not comprehend it
The light penetrates into hearts and
The word became flesh and tabernacled in our hearts
How wonderful is our God!
Hope you had a great weekend and also had a day of rest.
I actually napped, very surprised because my watched recorded it
Could you believe it as I rested my head on the sofa after church
I mean after stuffing my face with crisps the weight of it
Was so heavy that my mind could not lay awake
My stomach could not stand in the weight
So I lie down and the food digested
My eyes close and the sweet dreams come
It is in Him that we have breath
Welcome to my "Treasure Trove of Information"
Last Monday in April wow
So I give thanks to the Almighty and Saviour
We can never stop saying thank YOU
The voice of one crying in the wilderness
Make straight the way of the Lord
So in my thanks to the Lord,
I choose some words that stirs me up
Get me out of my chair
Make me smile
Make me dance
Make me cry
Nothing like the words of the Lord to bring out all the emotions in me
My heart yearns for the Lord so this is a worship of thanks
And a reflection of His words
Walking in the cool of the day with the Lord
I love to imagine that in the garden
What do you seek?... think about it
Come and see.. The world of madness come and see
Follow me .. no more words needed, no reason needed
Woman, believe Me...for now we worship in Spirit and in truth
Who is like You Lord, for it is in You
We have life
We have the living water
We have the bread of life
I don’t need to see signs and wonders
You do make me laugh and smile and provoke my senses
For sometimes the science in me wonders the words You speak
So I sit and listen
Your words raises my eyebrow in wonder and awe
For I wanted to hear more, what does this mean?
“I am the bread of life”
Okay, what does it mean?
You picked my curiosity for I wanted to eat this bread and have a life with You
You even show me the things that I hide to myself
You love me in spite of all I have done
Yes the Lord is good
And He has invited us to sit and have breakfast
So I sit and let the words overflow
As You spoke the words to Simon, son of Jonah
“Do you Love Me more than these?”
Now my first response is “Yes, You know I love You”
The words penetrate in my heart
“More than these”
For it is a life of growth in Love
Committed to the journey of life
Because work, family will come
Are you committed?
Love grows as the plant grows when watered
Lord, how amazing to reflect
“Feed my lambs”
For it starts as a lamb
Greater is He that is in me than he that is the world
In Your power and might
The lamb is fed and cared for
The lamb is now a sheep
We tend the sheep
Then we fed the sheep
Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You
Let such as Love Your Salvation say continually
The Lord be magnified
But I am poor and needy
Yet the Lord thinks of me
You are my help and deliverer
For You have sent someone to care for me
To feed me and give me shelter
Blessed is he who considers the poor
The Lord will deliver Him in time of trouble
As the wisdom of our Lord is apparent
I have come to learned what a sheep is
Sheep become stressed when isolated; this stress is reduced if they are provided with a mirror, indicating that the sight of other sheep reduces stress. ~ according to Wikipedia
And so we thank You for community
For You will always leave the ninety-ninety to find the one
Because we are together
The Lord of hosts is with us
The God of Jacob is our refuge
Let everyone that has breath Praise the Lord
'So He said, “Come.”
And when Peter had come down out of the boat,
he walked on the water to go to Jesus. '
Matthew 14:29 NKJV
Wow it is Friday and good morning or evening
I do love my Fridays, Why?
Well very good question.
I love the other days in a different way.
Wednesday is midweek and all the stress of the week is now further behind me
For me, I tend to forget that I serve a big God and should call on Him first
As a human which is debatable, sometimes it is the last thing I do
Well I am learning and I love to learn and take actions
So as I look outside the window and it snowed last night
Come see, the floor is white and the cars are all covered with ice
Pretty isn't it
and it been like this the whole of the week, not much snow but I love it
In the morning I have the privilege to see the sun rising from afar
So I step out and ran back quickly in
Why? I forgot, the sun doesn't mean it warm
and inviting me, oh no it is not the African sun
The UK sun is very cold, well enough of the weather forecast and back to Friday
I have two days to relax and not think about work
I can walk for long hours and sometimes I lie in
The bed is warm and nice
My week it was about learning and stepping out of the boat
I decided to be a Peter, what does that mean?
I stepped out of the boat, my comfort zone
Do things that makes me uncomfortable.
Peter is my inspiration, out of all the disciples
He was the only one who got to walk on water
because he took the leap of faith, even briefly
The others sat down looking but sometimes it is nice to see Jesus
And jump off the boat with excitement awe and wonder
Don't be scared, He will never let us sink
Well I have to finish work, no rest for the wicked
See if I can finish this work and I will see you tomorrow
If God wills, remember to enjoy the day
'The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. ' 2 Corinthians 10:4-5
Hello and Welcome. Hope you had a good weekend or a good day 🙂
Let’s sit outside the vault, now I want to give you something different. Yes! well to be honest, your imagination and I hope you use it because I want you to indulge me or should I say yourself. Never mind, let’s continue our journey and it is outside…..
See the sky, see the birds in the air, see the land in front of you with different trees and let us glorify our Father.
My hope always is to do good to please God, but as human beings we can turn it into an idol. See the dilemma here. Now Jesus says do good not to be seen by others. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in Heaven. Matthew 6:1.
Let your left hand, don’t know what the right does. Now it is hard, they are so close together I open my purse with the left and my right is already looking at what is going on. It then grabs the purse and they both fight for attention. Do you see the dilemma here?
How can I overcome this?
Jesus gave the answer: A model Prayer
Our Father in Heaven
Hallowed be Your Name
Your Kingdom come
Your Will be done
On earth as it is in Heaven
Give us Your daily bread
And forgive us our debts
As we forgive our debtors
And do not lead us into temptation
But deliver us from the evil one
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever, Amen
Wait a minute, the prayer doesn’t involve me.. BUT it does the kingdom of God is for everyone
The prayer starts with the important thing in our life, GOD.
We praise HIM, we worship HIM and we adore HIM. For the kingdom of GOD to come on earth means we need to get closer to HIM. He is not far off, just take a seat with HIM. He wants to have breakfast, lunch and dinner and all snacks we eat.
And the next part is about the US, that includes you and I, this is good news. Incase, you have not noticed the NAME of JESUS doesn’t have an I in it BUT it does have an US – Just Experience Salvation Together (US) in the BODY. So it can be hard as we are around people and sometimes you want to talk but think before you speak and use wisdom. Will this glorify God or will it cause my brother or sister to sin, don’t know about you but I will not want to be the reason for any one sinning.
God lead me not into temptation
Put a guard over my mouth
Give me what I need for today
So that I will not sin against You
Renew my strength
Let Your mercy and goodness follow me
And come to the tabernacle of my heart.
I do love the treasures that God has given each of us. I am talking about the mind. It is a treasure for it stores up things off God or things of the world. The things of God can easily be stolen if we let the world treasure be at the front. If we keep storing the things of the world, they can easily destroy the treasures from God, for the enemy will love nothing more than to come and just destroy, steal all that is from God and what He has given us.
You then forget your purpose in life and as I have come to know the graveyard is very rich with treasures and ideas that never took courage to step out of the comfort zone.
Lay the treasures with God in Heaven
And we find our purpose
Guard our hearts
Take time out and enjoy the sunshine, sit with God.
Enjoy His presence, smile and He smiles back
Sometimes we forget to breathe
No other day than to bask in the presence of our God
I love life, but you have to remember it is a smoke
Think about it, a smoke in your hand doesn’t last long
It disappears in your eyes and sometimes where has it gone
Yes time flies, no one knows what the future holds
Like the smoke that disappears in your hand so is life
Enjoy it for you do not know what life brings tomorrow
I do urge you to trust GOD and do take HIM seriously
For He holds both your soul and body
'We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. '
2 Corinthians 10:5
Father, You are so wonderful.
Thank You for today 🙂
Holy Spirit renew my mind
Saturate my thoughts with Your thoughts
True thoughts, Honourable thoughts
Morally excellent thoughts
Praise worthy thoughts
In the midst of my uncertainty help me to guard my thoughts
And dwell on You
In Jesus name, amen
