“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

Glorify the Son!

And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. I am who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forever more. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death. Revelation 1:17-18

Bible verse to reflect on the glory of Jesus 
Watching the pictures and listening to the bible app
John 17 started and my ear turned in and my heart was alert
It never occurred to me 
the message means so much to us as believers in christ
The words started to sink into my soul 
I stoped everything I was doing and listen with my heart
For when I finished listening I was in tears 
For I let the prayer wash over me 
With an open mind it sank into my soul 
I sat and just let it all go 

As Jesus Christ our Lord spoke the words..
My heart was beating at the realisation of what a powerful prayer 
Before we were born
We already had blessing and chosen by our Father
He already gave us protection

Let the words wash over my mind and soul as I reflect on it again
I do not pray for these alone... 
believe in Me through their word
That they may be one, as You, Father are in Me and I in You...

And I let my heart take it all in and let it wash over me
How wonderful You are Father and Saviour of our Lord Jesus Christ 
Let Your Love Jesus wash over me
And let the words move me into adoration of the Father.

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
To receive power and riches and wisdom
And strength and honour and glory and blessing!
You are worthy O Lord 
For You have redeemed us to God by Your blood
It finally snowed in London on Sunday

“Whisper the Name”

"You are the Christ, the Son of the living God" Matthew 16:13b
Look up to our God
The one and almighty God 
The one who was and is and is to come

He sent us His Son so we can get closer to Him
He will not fail us or leave us in the hands of the enemy
For when things get extremely of control 

we can trust the name of Jesus
Jesus Jesus Jesus

The name that is above any name
The name that demons run from, 
At the sound or a whisper and there is light in the room

The light that shines in the darkness
The darkness can never overtake us
The light that shows us the way to GOD

God, You are a good Father
Words are beyond expressions and the mind cannot perceive
So the heart shall speak the truth

You are the God and reason for us being alive
When we look up and see the sun shining at us
It not only brightens the day but 

It gives us joy that strengthens our bones 
building our immune system to fight for what is right
to bring light in the darkness

Thank You Father for You have not forsaken us
You give us the strength when we  need it 
And You hold our right hand, saying "Fear NOT, I will help You"

In awe and wonder, I stand and look at You Jesus
For You have found me in the dark and we walked to light
In the light I can see the dark from afar 

I will trust in You 
For You have set me free 
I will share the goodness of what You have done for me and continue to do

Thank You Father
Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from the evil one, Amen

ADVENT – HOPE

God saved you by his grace when you believed. 
And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. 
Ephesians 2:8 NLT
2013 Holiday in Vienna, one of the tallest tree I have seen and could not get to the top
Advent: The coming of Jesus to the world. 
As we prepare and remember the real meaning of Christmas. 

Today, I am inspired as I read my Advent devotional 
based on Psalm 130:1-8

The Hope we rely on: What do I hope for? or 
Who do I put my hope in? 
God's Character:

As I get get to know You Lord
The more hope I have
In the beginning You created the world 

You are the God that brings life to everything
You gave life to us and a promise
We broke that promise of a life together

Why? Because we wanted to be god’s 
Not knowing we are already made like You
Created like You
Yet still, You never gave up on us

In this season of pain and suffering 
In this season of lessons 
In this season of doubts
In this season of fear and anxiety

The season of December is different 
Because we remember why we have that hope and 
Why it is different to the world's hope 
Not a hope to cross my finger 
The hope that no one can gives 

The hope that allows us to remember 
The real meaning of Christmas
We will celebrate it 

Christ came to save the world
To give hope to all
To show us what it means to get closer to You Father
To show us that You keep no records of sin

If you did, who could stand?
With You we are forgiven and that makes You so wonderful
We understand that You are not man to hold a grudge 
We can serve You with reverence 

So as December starts 
I am counting on the Lord 
Yes I am counting on the Lord
I have put my hope in His Word

I will keep hoping 
I will keep trusting 
I will wait on the Lord

Yes as we wait for the vaccine to come 
I will keep praying and 
I will wait on Him 
For His unfailing love never ends

What the enemy taught for evil 
You Lord have turned it for good for everyone
We will wait on You Lord as You work 
We will praise You 
We will glorify Your Name.

We say THANK YOU ABBA FATHER
In Christ Jesus,Amen.

Have a wonderful day.
Thank You for stopping by. 

Inspired by the Ragtag Daily prompt

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

Happy Thanksgiving To ALL

Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Everyone thank God, 
for he is good and easy to please. 
Your tender love for us, Lord, continues on forever. 
Psalms 106:1 TPT

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate. I hope the holiday season is joyful to all and whatever you do I send the blessings of God your way by the Holy Spirit your heart will be filled with joy as you celebrate it in a unique and different way. In Jesus Name, Amen.

He provides food for hungry men and animals! 
His tender love for us continues on forever! 
Psalms 136:25 TPT
There is a time for everything
A time to born and a time to die

In this season as I walk the 
usually busy street packed with people
The restaurants are all close 
The parks are less busy 
Except for the dog lovers 

I am thankful that I can walk the street 
I am also thankful for the quiet street 
The time to gaze at the beauty of Your creation

This season has taught me to 
look at the things around me 
It has made me more aware of what I am missing 
What I would Love to have in place

Lord thank You for giving me an opportunity to 
Love all the beauty of the world 
To commune with You 
To share my Love for You to others

Thank You for just been You 
Amazing
Wonderful 
Loving and Merciful

Thank you for stopping by, enjoy the Holidays!
