“Treasure Trove of Information”

'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 
John 1:23b

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
Thank you again 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: 
'However, 
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

I Surrender

My heart, O God, is focused and determined. 
Now I can sing my song with passionate praise! 
Awake, O my soul, with the music of His splendour
Psalms 108:1
I do love You Lord 
What is man that You should be mindful off
You are the giver of gifts 

I am ready, so ready to praise Your name
From head to toe, will I dance and sing a song to Your name
As I sit in awe and wonder of the creation of the world 

You bring Joy to my heart, So I surrender to You
Your mercy are new everyday 
Wake, soul, wake up my feet, wake up my body

Let us sing praises to our God 
And dance to His glorious name
The deeper His Love the higher it goes

Lord Today, I seek You 
Only two things I ask of You 
Do not withdraw Your hand from me or turn away from me

For You know my heart, You know me and I cannot hide from You
Create in me a clean heart O God and renew a right spirit with me
Take away any false humility or pride that does not give You any glory

I pray to You my God and Saviour 
For it is You that give all good things 
Let me be gracious in receiving

I surrender to You Father
Through the One and only Saviour
The High Priest, our Redeemer

At my best

'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 
Thank You for stopping by.

The Lord Jesus will remain forever
His throne from generation to generation 
The circle of love is full of everything that life briings

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

“Treasure trove of information”

'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

Prayer – our thoughts

'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
Commendable 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 
Thank You for stopping by.
