“Treasure Trove of Information”

'He made His wonders memorable. 
Adonai is gracious and full of compassion. '

Psalms 111:4 TLV
Looking at different angles of light: Burgess Park, Southwark, London

Good Morning, Good Afternoon or Good Evening and what a beautiful day. 

A day to give thanks to the Almighty God 

A day to sit at the feet of Jesus and know that He is Lord 

Good to see you and Happy to walk with you today. The Vault calls and sometimes the treasures are best to look at, absorbed, pondered and give a testimony of the goodness.

In Church we continued our series on Revelation: The Lord always gives fresh manna

As I reflect on His words and knowing that 

He sees each and everyone of us
He compliments our work 
He gives us encouraging words 
He gives us warning to change and the words that I seem to see is 

Revelation 2:29 NKJV: He who has an ear, let Him hear what the Spirit says to the churches

The choices and Grace given to us everyday.

Grace is given to us each day 
Grace is not earned 
Grace is enough for today 

With Grace comes energy to move 
The ability to think
The time to prepare, 
The resources to work in life
The patience we need in that time
Grace is always enough to spare for others and yourself on that day

What a wonderful God we serve!
Grace always comes with extra on the day
Because the God we serve is generous and gives us more than enough 

Choosing to abide in God 
Choosing Jesus means having the right attitude 

Having Grace in our lives means having lots of rooms 
No matter how the rooms look or feel 
should never deter us from entering
With generosity and thankfulness 
And also sharing and bringing the light into the room 
Not complaining and disputing 
But holding fast to the Word of life 

We have a good reason to be glad and to rejoice 
Encouraging one another in the Lord 
Seeking the things which are of Christ Jesus, forsaking oneself 

Grace gives us a reason

For we are all God’s workmanship 
All things are gifts from the Father

Rejoice, He is generous and not partial 
We all have a purpose and reason to be alive
Do not tempt the Lord as some did 
And killed by the poisonous serpents

As I reflect and ponder and absorb 
I have come to understand 

How easy it is to take things for granted 
How easy it is to just complain

Also I have come to see that 
complaining makes us age faster

Does it change the situation? 

Well in my opinion, it gives 
Gray hair and unnecessary stress - just my theory 

So the words of our Lord
Written in my hearts and reminds me 
Do not be afraid 
I am the First and the Last

May these words echo in my brain 
May these words become part of my heart 
When I am afraid 
I will remember Your words 
Lord Jesus, give me a new heart 
And a spirit that follows You
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

Adjust my gaze

'So the Pharisees and teachers of religious law asked him, 
“Why don’t your disciples follow our age-old tradition? 
They eat without first performing the hand-washing ceremony.”'

Mark 7:5 NLT
Burgress Park-Southwark Park. London
As I ponder on the words of Jesus:

The people honour Me with lips 
But their hearts is far from Me
And in vain they worship Me
Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men

Why oh why do we like imaginary boxes 
The Lord our God is vast and beyond our comprehension 
The Lord creates and can not be contain in a box 

Yes to Jesus 
Yes to Him alone - 

I have come to understand that saying Yes is 
Saying no to the things that pleases my flesh
And constantly adjusting my eyes that wanders around 

As I continue to  ponder to myself
Is the old life completely gone? 
Not a chance, it creeps in slowly 

Life is accustomed to and feel good moments
Life likes familiarity 

Yes to Jesus 
Means not walking alone 
Is it easy? Of course NOT

See this week, 
we have showers of blessings in London
No surprise, It is always raining

Boy was I glad, 
I didn’t have to water my potted plants
So on Thursday no rain, 

Well I checked up on my plants, 
the leaves are out wow
You will not believe it
 
I see something I did not plant 
Oh dear this is not good
 
Weeds - I saw weeds 
My eyes widely open - 

with questions 
How did you get in here?
What does it mean? 

So these weeds are sprouting 
from the gaps between the stones
In life as I ponder, I have gaps too
 
Days when I just want to look inwardly 
Days when I don’t anything but me 

These are the days the gaps are created  
And these gaps makes me lose focus

They bring  doubts and fears 
They make me look with the wrong lens on 
They make me think everyone is against me

As I ponder on what to do
I saw Him and all He wants is to be with me

He is part of my life
Not only when I want Him to be 
He should be with me all the time

Life is not easy, 
the weeds will sprout 
when we are flourishing

When water is good and 
I am soaked in His word 
When I am vulnerable 

It is easy to be distracted 
Watch and pray 
Be alert always 

Yes I decided not to pull all the weeds out
Well I also wanted to see what they will be like 
when the time is right 

I can distinguish them and pull them out
Very exciting news
 
For now they stay
I read up that some can be a good flower 
Who knows, we will see

So looking at the weeds 
In the quietness 

In my own craziness 
I look at the sky 
The sky proclaim the work of His hands

Consider and hear me, O Lord my God
Make my eyes sparkle again
Lest my eyes wonder and fall into the trap of death

So I went for a walk - to burgess park 
It is a very big park, looking at the green trees and just enjoying nature 

I trust in Your unfailing love 
My heart rejoices in Your salvation
 
I will sing the Lord’s praise 
For He has been good to me

As I ponder on the words of Jesus

Egg-New Life

Burgess Park, Southwark, London: I love to find treasures like this
The Lord lives!
Bless be the rock!

The egg is unique 
Some are fertilised and some are not 
All eggs have a protective shell

This shells are awesome 
They can be flexible or inflexible 
Whatever egg it is 
Eggs have an organic vessel

It contains zygote in which an embryo develops 
Until it can survives on it own
A new life is born 
With it own character
And you see it grows to bring joy to others

Sometimes they bring sorrow 
But all life is life and it matters
