' Israel lives in safety, the fountain of Jacob is quite secure,
in a land of grain and new wine; indeed, its heavens rain down dew.
You have joy, Israel! Who is like you?
You are a people delivered by the Lord ,
your protective shield and your exalted sword.
May your enemies cringe before you; may you trample on their backs.'Deuteronomy 33:28-29 NET
As I read the Book of Deuteronomy and
At the end of Moses life
He gives blessings to the people of Israel
One cannot help but be very thankful to our Lord
Jesus Christ through Him we all have this blessing
Happy are us, who come to our God
In the name of the Lord Jesus
Grace and peace to you from our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Wow, another week has started and I am delighted you can drop by. It is the beginning of August and soon we will start to see Christmas themes.
Welcome to my vault, hope you had a good weekend? For me wow is what I can say…
On Saturday, spur of the moment.
A friend invited me to come along to Lavender Garden and
I was just glad I did and it was just amazing.
As I walked down the lane between the beds
The sweet smell of aroma fills my norsil
As I lie on the floor looking at the sky
The smell surrounds me
The bees and the butterflies goes by
It was pure magical to be surrounded by beds of lavender, Imagine that
So Looking at the sky
One cannot help but bask in the beauty that surrounds us
The beauty of our God who created the flowers
The sweet aroma of smell that captives my senses
My eyes look at the sky and the lavender plants around me
My nose smells the sweet fragments
My ears hears the bees as they roam around
The footsteps and laughs of the people
What more beauty can define who the Lord is
The Lord our God will dwell in the dark cloud
For He has built a temple in our hearts
Through Christ Jesus we are a place that He can dwell in forever
Now therefore be courageous and walk in the land of the living
For the Lord our God is good
And His mercy endures forever
Well it will not be England if it didn’t rain
So we had loads of rain
Now today is another day
It is the First Monday of the month of August and
today is a day as any other day to give thanks
God is wonderful and no one like Him
He hears our prayer and
He has chosen you and I for Himself as the house of sacrifice
It blows my mind when I think of what the Lord has done, does and will always do
I sometimes forget it is not about me but about God.
We live in His world and He is the Maker, what more to say.
The Battle is already won
We fight on the winning side
Smile and be joyful in the Lord
When he shuts the Heavens
There will be no rain
Nothing you and I can do about it
So be glad that you have life
We have a compassionate God
Who is slow to anger and abundant in Love
Lord, You have been our shelter in all generations
True Wisdom only comes from the Lord
Seek it and you will find
Value it and you will not be disappointed
The Lord our God is also a God of Justice
He will punish the wicked
For no one will escape the day of judgement
Guard your heart above all else
Worship the Lord in Spirit and truth
It is better to have little with the fear of the Lord
Than to have great treasure and an inner turmoil
I tell you the truth,
Be wise and seek God’s will
Be hungry for His knowledge
Sit and worship Him in Spirit and truth
For fools feeds on trash
And that only brings turmoil and troubled heart
So I say be wise
Meditate on His words daily
He is closer than you think
I Love the Lord
I do Love the Lord
He Loves me first
He loves me
He loves me
For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptureswe might have hope. Romans 15:4 ESV
The nugget for the the day is REST
R - review the day both in the morning
and evening by taking time to reflect
on what God did and what He will do (expectancy)
If God said to write something down,
then it must be good for us.
Remember [with awe and gratitude] the wonderful thingswhich He has done, His amazing deeds and the judgmentsuttered by His mouth [on His enemies, as in Egypt],Psalms 105:5 AMP
Writing it down means we remember the goodness of
God and we can also share it with others.
It also brings encouragement and hope
I always find that my heart swells up when
I read my old journal of prayers
Or sometimes it brings back memories:
oh yes I did ask for that wow God You listen.
Imagine if Paul did not write how he met Jesus.
The Bible is our example of why we should write
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth,but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Joshua 1:8 ESV
Imagine if Moses had not written anything down
anything and said I will remember.
We read it and that tells us who He is.
I like tangible evidence.
In my time of rest, I will write down what You have done for me. Lord Help me to always remember to write it down Not just for myself but to give You glory and praise.
Exercise the mind:
Meditating on the word day and night.
The world says empty your mind, Jesus says if you empty your mind and not fill it up with the things of God then we call the trouble in not just one but seven. Matthew 12:43-45. Think about it.
God says meditate on my word day and night.
Do not let it depart from you.
Thank You Father that Your word is a Lamp to my feet and a light to my path, may I always recognise and look to You in Jesus name. Amen
The first thing we experience when God created us was to rest, when Adam was created on the six day,
God rested on the seven day and
that says a lot about it.
I have always found it fascinating the way
God has built our body to heal itself naturally.
Which is why it is nice to journal the thoughts in our head before bed, thinking too much can lead to
It is while we sleep that the body starts to work. If we can't get any sleep then it is always a good idea to get some help. It easier said than done, but seeking advice is better than a sleepless night.
Time and Thanks:
Time waits for no one and it is something
everyone has in common.
Twenty-four hours, use it wisely and it will
be your friend.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.Ecclesiastes 3:11 NKJV
Take time to say thanks to the people around you.
It is a season to be grateful and no excuse is better than “It's Christmas, and I am in the Christmas mood and want to say thank you for this year."
In everything give thanks to our God.
Thank You Father, for this year. It had its ups and
downs, I will say possibly more downs than ever.
But what I have come to know is that You have been there
through it all. I have seen Your faithfulness in my life
and my loved loves. Some are not here anymore, and that
is Your will. God help me to remember that Your ways are
not my ways and Your thoughts are not mine. Forgive me
for trying to manipulate You, for doing what I want
forgetting that You know best and see everything.
Let me be Humble to remember and give thanks for
everything, In Your Son’s name. Amen.
“I thank You and praise You, O God of my fathers; You have given me wisdom and might, And have now made known to me what we asked of You, For You have made known to us the king’s demand.” Daniel 2:23 NKJV
Www p5K - Day 6
As I open my eyes, thank You
Father for giving me another.
It is the first Sunday of December
And we are meeting
In the Church with mask and all
Lord thank you that I get to worship
You with others not that the YouTube is
Not great, it is just different with others around.
Together we worship You,
Something was different this time
I was singing from the heart and my mind
was focused on the words as wearing masks
means voice on the inside of my head
So it silent all other taughts
As I went for a walk to meditate on
Your word that I have heard
The word on spiritual gifts
What a wonderful God You are
To consider Your servant and give me a gift
Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.
Your hands have made me
And fashioned me, give me
Understanding that I may learn
You are good, and do good
Teach me Your status
I pray that Your merciful
kindness be for my comfort
Blessed be the Lord my Rock
Who has given me the feet to walk
The mind to think and discern
My lovingkindness and my fortress
My High tower and my deliverer
Praise the Lord, O my soul
While I live I will praise the Lord.
Thank You Father for another day to see
Your glory and the rock that I lean on
Solid, unshakable and everlasting
You never fade away or move
With this I lay my head down
Thinking that it might be an ordinary day
But it was a good day to give You thanks
If I could not think of anything to
Say to You then thank You for waking me up.
If the Lord wills, I will see you tomorrow
Who knows what God has in store for you and I
Good night LORD
