“Walking into the unknown”

We give thanks to God always for you all,
making mention of you in our prayers.
1 Thessalonians 1:2 NKJV

Fulrose, started we will know them by the footprints left behind. Sometimes, however, they will come out for two reasons. Firstly their powers need refilling which means they do get hungry easily. Secondly, they cannot control themselves. 

A short silence followed, then a buzz from the sword vibrating as they both looked. 

If what you say is right then we need to be very watchful – and find them, says Nwe

Walking to the outside world, the bright light blinding them, the street filled with life and discussions. Cars passing by, but Nwe’s voice rose slightly above it. A systematic search is needed for the city. She turned and looked at Fulrose, we’ll need help. 

Fulrose’s brows rose and followed Nwe’s gaze. I have known you for two years and never met anyone but you. Where are we getting help from? 

Don’t you worry about that, Nwe replied. If we want help, it will take time to organise. I suggest we start tomorrow morning. Today we get something to eat and some rest. 

A day won’t make much difference, as Nwe continued. But rest and a full stomach will make a difference to my thinking. 

Fulrose nodded slowly, I agree. We, as someone with a sword and power within us have authority to enter and see in the night. Our search will be hampered if we don’t have the sword. We will need to do the search at night, but look for help in the day.

We really will need to be on the lookout, they will also try and disguise themselves. The illusion will not last but I have something for us to disguise ourselves when we travel at night, said Fulrose looking up and smiling at Nwe as they got close to the house and entered.

Athan waved a hand and the illusion vanished. He had followed from a distance, and needed to get close to hear but that would mean risking being seen. When he looked up again as they entered the house, he found Cassa looking at him appraisingly 

What are we going to do with them once we attack now? Cassa asked.

Thanks so much for stopping by. This is a journal of imaginative mind, fiction. 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!

Have a wonderful day 🙂

“Treasure Trove of Information”

"For no word from God will ever fail.” 

Luke 1:37 NIV


Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour: Welcome all 🙂

Apologies, It is a late one today. Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
Ecological Park, Bermondsey, Southwark. London.

First Monday in May. 

To everything there is a season. A time for every purpose under the Heavens.

The Vault: Today I want to be outside the vault, I love stories. To hear stories and absorb them requires listening:

Yesterday I spent the whole day outside my house. Walking with a friend and ending in the Ecology Park: This park always amazes me, and if you are ever in bermondsey walk in this park and see the greens even for a city it looks amazing.

Not sure about you, this year seems to be going fast. I have this tradition in me that I give thanks for the month ahead because I am walking by faith and every obstacle that may come my way I give to the Lord. Cast all my cares and burdens to Him 

This is one of my favourite verses and there is something about reading it with a new set of eyes and seeing it in a different light. 

"Matthew 6:25-34- DO NOT WORRY"

Familiarity is a curse in my opinion when it comes to scriptures, hear me out. 
The reasons is 
We lose the meaning behind the message. 
We glance over words 

It does not touch the heart anymore
It stops in the mind 

The doors are shut 
It bounces like a ball in our hand as we play with it mindless

The Bible
The Words spoken 
Are God words
So take it seriously 

Do we listen to the words? 

So reflecting on the words in Luke 1:26-38 and looking at the reaction of Mary (Mother of Jesus) as she listens to what the angel says, she ponders it in her heart and in response to her listening skills comes questions. Questions comes answers

Listen equals reflection and then the right questions to get the right answers.

One of the reasons why  we don’t listen well is that we tend not to apply all of our brain power and heart to the exercise. Listening is an exercise and must be done daily to optimise its skills, or see the growth of it.

Most of the time, half or three-quarters of our brain could very well be doing something else while we are reading or listening to someone speak.

In the content of listening to the bible: there will be other things going on in the same space. 

Maybe there are people walking about
Maybe your phone lights up, telling you that you have received a text
Maybe there’s music in the room 
Maybe there’s television in the background 

Meanwhile you thinking of the to-do list 
The next meeting 
What am I going to say to my friend or family when I see them in the next hour
What will I have for breakfast or lunch or dinner

Do everything you can to tune all of this out
And be completely present 

Studying the word in the right conditions will likely improve your focus. 
And both in preparation for the study

When studying in a group:
I find out that note taking is best when listening

Notes allow you to organise and process information in a way that makes it most likely that you can us this information afterward.

But don’t fall into the temptation of concentrating on the note taking that you forget listening to the words. But make sure you are really listening. Guess what you are not a secretary, you not around as someone who is receiving information for later use. Therefore it is very important to hear what others are saying:

Take notes of what is emphasised 
Make sure you understand what the points the speaker is making and if 
opportunity arises ask questions.

After notes taking, ensure you review the notes immediately 
It helps you retain the information much more effectively than if you don't read the notes for days
As an extra bonus 
You will be able to supplement your notes with anything you might have missed while taking the notes 
because the information will still be fresh in your mind.

Remember God loves you and nothing we do surprises Him. He requires our attention and obedience and that is listening. Not a massive lists of things to do but “Let it be to me according to Your word”

My soul will magnify the Lord
And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Saviour 
I will rejoice in Your Salvation 

No one is Holy like the Lord
For there is none like You
Nor is there any rock like our God

Thank you for stopping by
Pray you have a wonderful week 🙂

And I also pray that this verse 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. '

Wonders!

Jesus was handed over to be crucified for the forgiveness of our sins
and was raised back to life to prove that he had made us right with God!
Romans 4:25 TPT
The wonders of God
Are you are not glad that His ways 
Are not our ways 
I am very glad, sometimes I don’t like it

So this week, it just been looking at wonders of the Lord 
The testimonies of all 
The growth of people

I love learning and so this week is learning week
Came to understand what Paul meant 
In the Bible, the Book of Romans 

Sometimes you want to do good 
I know that I should do it
I have no doubt this is the right thing
My mind tells, the Holy Spirit nuge me 
Scriptures come to my mind
Do I do it, NO 

But I don’t understand why I do not do it 
Yes, it is a nod, a shake in the head 
I did it again, I sit in silence and sigh
Why? Yeh I guess I look at my Lord 
I don’t understand, help me God
Not trying to justify 

But something in me just would not let me
For I do what I hate and practice it 

The flesh is weak and governed by the laws
The flesh is ruled by the laws 

For the Lord our God died so that Grace abounds within me
Grace triumph over the laws
For He came not to abolish it 
But to accomplish 
So sometimes it happens 

To teach us 
To correct us, 
To depend on Him 

For His Grace is all we need
For I am dead to sin 
And alive to God
For Christ said it is finish, the death 
that He died, He died to sin once and for all
But the life that He lives, He lives to God 
What a wonderful news 
So I glorify the Name above all names

Wonders are what you do
Wonders are what I see daily

Wonders is seeing the sunrise in the morning 
Feeling the breeze as I walk in the day

Wonders is seeing sunset in the evening 
And the chill of the breeze in my bones

Wonders never stop in all things 
Wonders is seeing a baby grow up

Wonders is knowing that I am the apple of Your eye
Wonders is knowing I am blessed

So I conclude this madness 
The flesh is the flesh and will be the flesh
So I will not set my mind on the things of the flesh
For it is weak, that I have come to understand

Madness I tell, it is not easy and that is the fun of it 
The Life with our Lord is challenging

I will not lean on my own understanding
I will set my eyes on You Lord 

For in You I have received the Spirit of adoption 
And I will cry out loud Abba Father
For I am joint heir with You Lord

In all the madness why run away from it 
If indeed we suffer with You Lord 
That we may also be glorified together
I Love the sound of that
I thank God through Christ Jesus our Lord
© Hannah Michaela
Happy Friday and thank you for stopping by.
"We cannot change what happens around us but we can change our responses." 
The flesh is weak, don't depend on it.

Walking into the unknown

For you are all sons of God through faith 
in Christ Jesus
Galatians 3:26

You are right, Nwe whispered. Eyes wide as she searches through the room.  

Now, Fulrose said in a calm voice, breathe, I have a solution. 

When she released that she was holding her breath she moved closer. How?

Well, this might not work, through the link – Fulrose swallowed – I have access to his life line and it is very risky but I can still sense it. 

Nwe looked skeptical, can you feel anything now? Well I mean I can..

A blade on her side, as Athan whispered… miss me. Are you guys talking about me.. Something was not right as he pulled us away looking at Fulrose. You are coming with me, her heart sank as they had been so focused on the task, each other and didn’t see him coming with more troops.  Fulrose moved with the new guests surrounding them. Do not even think of using it as it would destroy both of us, spoke Athan

As we walked out of the room, with the men walking in front and on the side and back. We got to the entrance that we came in to. 

On the short journey, men moved past us to the gate. A wave of relief washed over him as they got back to the gate, it will be over soon. He would hate to have to fight her on this side without seeing what goes on the other side. 

Open the gate, Athan whispered as she touched the gates and the door opened.

Excuse me, was this your plan all along? Nwe asked. 

She frowned as all the men left the cave into the world. 

No, the plan was to be with Amiya, I – 

But at that moment Fulrose spoke, you planned this all along to trap us here. With a non apologetic rather breathless voice. You followed me to this world as she continued. 

What is she talking about?

I recognise you- I must travel to the outside world and this is awkward as he spoke slowly with no hesitation and moved further away from us. 

Do not distress yourself, I must leave and we will meet again. Next time – 

And he was gone.

If I am right then we have a far bigger problem than the twenty men together running loose in the world. 

This is not good my friend – unfortunately I had blocked all ties to my land and did not recognise him until now. My focus was blurred and now I will make known to you that Athan was arrested for the most heinous crime ever known. We all thought he died only to find that he teleports, moves between worlds and pry on innocent people. 

Nonsense and very absurd, how can you be certain that he is the same man. I did not want it to be true because I have helped release him into our world. 

Lost a minute in thought as the door closed and sealing it with the sword essence across. Then, as though to myself, I spoke. 

We need to find him and also need some help with the twenty men. I have never set eyes on any of them and who knows what they will do. 

Fulrose, started we will know…

“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

Walking into the unknown!

'Then Adonai descended in the cloud, stood with him there, as he called on the Name of Adonai . 
Then Adonai passed before him, and proclaimed, 
“ Adonai , Adonai , the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, 
and abundant in lovingkindness and truth, showing mercy to a thousand generations, 
forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, yet by no means leaving the guilty unpunished, 
but bringing the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, 
to the third and fourth generation.” '
Exodus 34:5-7

The Story continues….as my imagination runs wild, we see in the eyes of Folrose, Nwe, Amiya and Athan. Welcome to the next part!

Athan, standing still not knowing what to say or how to react, looked past Amiya and straight at Fulrose. In silence they stood what seemed like hours was only a couple of minutes. So inching a little away only to see Amiya pushed to the floor as Athan jumped over, and where do you think you are going? Looking at Amiya who was as white as the daisy flowers that surrounded us,her eyes were wide open and lifeless and her dress was soaked in blood,  he continued. Yes, I knew she would eventually betray me so I took measures when I was out of her sight. Showing off what looks like a vest, it reflects any weapons used against it. See I cast a spell if you try to harm, you will only be killing yourself with a smirked look on his face. So truly she killed herself because of her own selfishness, we had a good thing going and I would have done anything for her.

Then Nwe turned and raised her eyes and looked and observed four men moving to the back of her and two on each side and four in the front. With an attempt to come at once, closing her eyes with a focus on the centre of the sword. Feeling the energy of the room, she could see each energy radiating from each man as they got nervous the energy was stronger. Feeding into the energy surrounding them, the sword became one in her hand and the dance started. Moving with music of the sword she reached the four men at the back with a swift strike and the music stopped. 

For she was now one with the sword, something had changed in the sword, the black flame now surrounded her hand and reflected on her eyes. The dance was different and she could completely let go and move to the music. Hands raised high she moved to the centre and the men got into position for another attack. They had no hope but she could start to see that some were thinking before acting.

Nwe stood and let the music move her mind and body, watching the men’s headlong rush and with a battle cry that was blocked by the sound of the music. She met each dance, some men stumbled, some tried to grope with outstretched hands but it was futile. For the sword has tasted the enemy’s blood, men fell to the fall. As the cries grew the dance grew stronger and the intensity, for she could see her soul was getting stronger with the sword at each death. The progress of the men started to slow as the first set of men fell to the floor, the others were now at a predicament. As it moved with the flow killing all its path some stopped and wondered but could not escape the song, for the sword was blind to the cries. And as its path was down, at last relief overflowed me. Then I looked up and outside Fulrose was at the mercy of Athan as they walked in. 

Athan looked very pleased as any one would look at a child, walking to the fireplace with Fulrose by his side. Along the way, Fulrose filled her in on how everything had gone and ran a few things by her that will be problematic. How was she to kill someone with a spelled vest which might be protecting his entire body. The head doesn’t seem to be protected, says the sword. We can knock him out and don’t do anything that will kill him as Fulrose injected. He has now done something to me that will affect me if you kill him, I will die. What? Yes, what we need is to get his mind of the situation at hand. Something to give him a reason to occupy his mind for a while. Any ideas?

Athan looked around, occupied and was very much looking for something as this could be the distraction we need. What is the matter? As he stopped and looked at both of us. Why are you two looking like that? What are you scheming about? Did she tell you the consequence of killing me?

Continuing to look at the walls..

Thanks so much for stopping by. This is a journal of imaginative mind, fiction. 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!

Have a wonderful day 🙂

Walking into the unknown

“neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:39‬ ‭NIV‬‬

The Story continues….as my imagination runs wild, we see in the eyes of Folrose, Nwe Amiya and Athan. Welcome to the next part, series of short stories!

How are we going to get away with this, running as fast as little legs could carry her. Nwe is been nothing but trouble ever since meeting her, all the adventures they have done together as Florose taught.  She continued to run and since leaving home life has been full of adventure. 

Remembering the day that she decided to live the manor and venture into the world of humans. In the woods, as she spoke to her dear father and mother. I am going into the human world, looking at the two and in the hopes to be stopped. But they both spoke together, that is great honey. You will love it and make sure you come back in five years. What, and why? Looking at both for some explanation as to why there was a time limit to my stay in the human, as this genuinely puzzled me. 

Why would I come back if I like it? 

I didn’t want to come back and I certainly was not about to let them know this. I have studied these humans and they seem nice, how wrong was I. Chased by a mad man and woman with dogs and looking for a way to escape. 

It has been five years today as I recall the promise made to my parents to go back, never thought I would disobey a direct order under these circumstances. Now I do wish I was in the land of peace and looking at the beautiful forest. 

The beautiful forest was hidden from the world and everyone was free, we could see how the humans were destroying the land. It is parallel to ours and we have the forest and large trees, our houses are built on the trees, the flowers and the water falls on every corner to help sustain the plants. 

A storm of rage and panic pushed into my chest as we came to the end of the line. Why are you doing this? Mind racing, and why follow me? I have nothing to give. As they both stopped, Amiya looked at me in silent curiosity for a moment, I have my reasons, I’m sorry Athan that you must suffer in this. It was not the plan and not my purpose but something has to be done.

To be continued…

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

Walking into the unknown

'I will set him over my house and my kingdom for ever; 
his throne will be established for ever.” ’ '
1 Chronicles 17:14

The Story continues….as my imagination runs wild, I let my heart do the talking and mind follow the trail. Welcome to the next part!

Nwe, looking closely at the entrance and seeing that Athan seems to be doing nothing, thinking to herself a sword would be great and having only used one as a practice and mostly in the video games. With this in mind, appeared in her right hand was a slick and thin blade. The handle was elegantly wrapped in red leather and green highlights shone along the handle constructure. 

Looking at Folrose and Athan who seemed very busy and didn’t notice as it disappeared just as it appeared. Maybe she was imaginary or possible hallucinating as she started to move away from the others.

Whispering to herself, Sword! and nothing happened. Sword and again nothing. Are you okay? came the voice of Folrose, pulling her to the side whispering and explaining what happened.

This is crazy, how could we fight with no weapon as I let her head rest  on the wall with frustration and a sigh. A sword appeared again this time it was real and she felt the energy passing through her with a new found strength. Both looked at her and then the sword in her hand and said nothing as she walked past them for an instant it was in control and then she came to her senses. Coming to a halt at the entrance as the scene was not what was expected. 

In the hall was a woman at the centre of a platform, with wild dogs surrounding her and on the edges men and where listening to every word she was saying. What happened in the last ten minutes, we thought it was three. 

Turning her attention to us, welcome Nwe we have waited for you as Athan stood behind us with a gun pointing at us and with a pushed from him we both stumbled forward. Then the three men came and moved us and Athan walked past and met her. With a passionate kiss they stood together and she moved speaking to him but looking at us, well done you did well. Was it easy? Yes, said Athan and turning around with a commanding voice spoke to the men, take the sword from her and bring it here. 

As they got closer, the white sword turned black flame and was spitting its flames on the ground. Gesturing to Folrose to move closer to my side and then forming a circle around both of us with the blackened flame. The first man who touched the circle was just as surprised as I was when he turned into a black tar and burst out leaving traces of his bones scattered in all directions. 

Looked up to see my new friend Athan coming to me with this woman. Well, you have no idea what that can do. Give it to me before you hurt yourself and worst my men. As she stretched her arms out, not coming close enough for fear that she might disintegrate. I am Amiya and turning around at Athan, I thought you said she doesn’t know how to wield it? 

Is this why you called me down here to get the sword, said Nwe. 

Yes, said Amiya and it is mine as she wielded two daggers out of thin air and turned to look at me. Looking at the men around her.

Nwe have seen lots of very attractive women before, but none as beautiful as Amiya. She realised that she was staring at her and didn’t see Athan on the other side of the room until Folrose jumped to protect her and was stabbed through the side of flame with a hole to allow room for the dagger only. Holding unto her and carefully laying her on the floor. Raising the sword, Amiya shouted don’t do what you’re about to do. 

Nwe glanced at Athan and then at Folrose on the floor, the pain she felt was overwhelming and was passing into the sword. The black flame was spitting out more flames and she formed a thicker ring round her and the flames were increasing as the anger in her increased. In the centre surrounded by the flame, she sat down next to Folrose. Not knowing what to do looked up and saw them talking but couldn’t hear what she was saying. 

Amiya looked at Athan, I thought she didn’t know how to use it. Walking away to the centre, guess she is a quick learner, said Athan. She paused and looked away from him, having dark thoughts about her husband was now becoming a norm, after what had just happened, she aimlessly played with one of the dogs. It did hurt that the sword was not hers again, why was the colour different?  Does it have different colours? Turning around with a shout, someone needs to find a way to get in. 

She doesn’t remember dieing. The dance sounds, could it be that death was here to collect her. Ever since meeting Nwe, nothing but adventures and troubles and now death. What is life? If she is dead, nothing she can do about it but face it. Looking at Nwe…. to be continued

Who is like HIM?

Then the survivors  came down, the people against the nobles; 
The Lord came down for me against the mighty.
Judges 5:13
Loving the way the trees are blossoming in my park with the flowers springing up 🙂

Lord, You are majestic in every way 
To You belongs all glory and honour 
O my God I trust You, You have been very faithful
Lord You love us so much that You created us in Your image

You created both male and female 
The world is Yours and everything in it
The world change in so many ways but You have never changed

Who is like our God? 
No one compares to You, No one knows much more of the world than You
Forgive us and let us remember Your tender mercies and Your lovingkindness

Your smiles are like the sunshine in the morning 
Your Love is like the sun when it comes out in full strength
Lord I know that I can hide in Your shadows 

Do not remember the sins of my Youth, 
Though they were many, yet You have forgiven me 
nor remember my transgression
According to Your mercy remember me for Your goodness sake

For You are the Lord that is Good and Just 
For You are the God that doesn’t need to be bribed or 
You are not the God to be mocked or 
You were not made with my hands 

And I love that, You are my rock
Nor do you listen to my every taturm but You are gentle and Kind 
You are upright and Just 

Lord You teach sinners the way and Lord Jesus 
You choose and waited for me to come closer 
In the day when sun is hot and the world doesn't want to see me

God, You show up all the time at the right time 
When I am in need of a drink, You show up 
When I am in need of a healing, You show up

It is not always on my time, but Your time 
For You see the bigger picture

The humble He guides in justice 
And the humble He teaches His way

My heart rejoices in the LORD
Because the Joy of the LORD is my strength

Faithful He is

One thing I ask from the Lord
this only do I seek
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life 
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in His temple
Psalms 27:4 NIVUK
The Lord is always good
The month of February is over 
Somehow it has gone by very quickly
My heart craves to be near You always
To seek Your face and to see Your beauty

This week has been a week I will say 
Indecent proposals and the wavering of the human mind
My mind Lord, You will I seek
One thing that is been very certain 
Is God, You are faithful and You alway provide for everyone

Work does get very busy and somehow I get through it
It was a tough week, and my Lord and Savior has been faithful
For I actually got through the day and week with a smile 
And God has sustained me throughout the week

You know what? I cannot thank Him enough
As the week got harder, I start to fade 
But I remember then, and I say to my soul why downcast
This I call to mind and there I have hope

Hope in the Lord that He is the same God 
The God of Bethel, the God that saved me when all else failed
The Lord is a God of Love and because of this Love 
I am not consumed by work 
For His compassion never fail

And so after work, I switch off 
Yes not just the laptop but the mind from work 
Then I do yoga or stretch depends on the mood
I have found it takes my mind off work not empty my mind
I don't think my mind is ever empty 
Besides I want it to be of God not clean 
For the enemy to have a walk through it 
It is not an empty park but filled with thoughts 
That the Lord sees, knows and still loves me

So, let me tell you about my journey this week
In my temptation this week well an 
In descent proposal, and God will always provide a way out
As I was walking  in the streets of London 
Camera in hand like a tourist enjoying the city 
I have truly come to appreciate the city 
I never looked at it but now I can’t help but enjoy it 

Lovely I think, for it is the workmanship of our Master
That said I smiled at this young man who taught 
I was tourist and I thought he wanted to ask me a question and he thought I needed help 
It was one of those days, totally loved up so I was nice to him
I mean sometimes the human in me don’t want to speak to anyone
And so the journey started and he started to follow me
Well it was nice conversation
The flattering starts and I was very cautious 
As he Insisted on getting me a drink 
Do I want to entertain this idea?
Well we did get a drink and walked listening to him.

In our conversation I mention Jesus and his response was
I am christian, So we went from shop to shop 
Until he suggests, let me come to your house and cook for you.
Now now young man, I might look vulnerable but I am definitely not a fool 
No thank you was my very stern answer and first
Secondly, all I could think off was, oh God help me
Not again, for the Lord is my Helper and in Him I trust

Well there we go my imagination started to run wild
I mean he could be a killer? Who knows the heart of a person except God
And so I walked away and said goodbye 
Going the long way and cautiously looking to see he has not followed me 
And prayed that he will go straight home and not find another willing victim 

It all crazy but one thing I have learned 
The town is full of mad people 
I am one of them living in a mad world 
I love it, we leave and learn. 

Our God is a faithful God 
I am glad His ways are not my ways 
Or thoughts my thoughts 
His faithfulness continues through all generations
And I delight in knowing and finding out who He is 

The sun was out and shining and so the mood changes 
The smile come out
Save me Lord for I am yours 
Oh how I love Your ways and commandments 
I will meditate on Your word daily
Help me to always see You
Lord Jesus I love You
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

LOVE

O Lord, You are my God 
I will exalt You
I will praise Your name
For You have done wonderful things
Your counsel of old are faithfulness and truth
Isaiah 25:1 NKJV
For God is in Heaven and I am on earth.

This week, the love week I call it 
Two are better than one
When it gets cold you can warm each other up

So I ponder to myself, how can one be warm alone?

Meaningless I tell you, but I do love LOVE
It brings a smile to my face
It is all meaningless and great misfortune 

So I decided to be mad this week
Get some music and dancing 
Hands wide open as I swirl around
Lost in the madness of Love and laughter 
Oh what joy the heart has 
I am a rose of Africa 
And the lily of the valleys

Africa has taught me to live in the moment

Here is what I have found as I looked back at the memories 
Life is short, be kind to others
Better to live with no regrets than with what ifs

Madness everywhere but the fun is letting my hair down
Eating in the dark is no good
In the land surrounded by sea 
For the bones will pass your hand to a place unexpected 
Tears fill my eyes not from pain 
But from memories of joy
It is all vanity





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
