“Treasure trove of information”

"The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.” Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you. All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord ’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.” ' 1 Samuel 17:37,47 

The weekend is over and we are in the last week of January, wow who would have thought I would be in the vault looking around. What do I need today God? How can I be a blessing? It is the last week sitting on the floor and looking around at the treasures for today I need You God and Your Encouragement!

As I walk out with a smile I bring you courage from our God to encourage you to preserve in the coming months.

The week where the habits start to fade, only perseverance can get us over the huddle. So the adrenaline comes down, the resolution seems like a distance away. Now is the time to preserve and stay on course. Habits are formed when we do it daily after the rush and adrenaline. When we don’t feel like it. We must continue that is when the brain will take us seriously.

All logic will say to us, it has not worked, nothing has happened, let us finish it and besides no one knows or cares. 

One thing I do know is that God cares, for you have His breath and that means He cares. He has chosen each of us and that is wonderful news.
This week and months that comes: Be kind to yourself ; Take it slowly, I mean baby steps; Get a routine. Know that it will get hard, for that is life and how you face it determines the end result.

Trust God, let Him renew your strength. For without Him then the problem becomes bigger than us and it becomes a giant. How we face giants, determines how the giant reacts. He can come at us big and strong if we cower in fear. Or we can face the giants, with braveness and authority from our Lord Jesus. Knowing that the Lord that delivered you from your past will do it again, because we serve a living God

This is the week that all the stumbling blocks might be on the way
One thing I know is God is bigger than the blocks
He holds our hands and will walk with us to cross over it

So don’t be afraid
Don't be discouraged for the Lord our God already knows the future 
And all we need is to trust and obey Him 
Believing that He will walk with us
For nothing is too hard for Him

Defy the odds of the scientist, be the few that pass the 21 days and continue in the journey. You hold a baton and need to pass it on. For when you succeed someone gets bless. The Lord’s name is Glorify, in Christ Jesus. Amen

“Treasure trove of information”

But he answered me, 
“My grace is always more than enough for you, 
and my power finds its full expression through your weakness.” 
So I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when 
I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of 
Christ living in me.
 2 Corinthians 12:9 TPT
It takes courage to look for a treasure
As I was looking into my treasures today, look what came about 
Courage wow COURAGE it takes courage to even type this. 
We all have courage, if you get out of bed everyday that takes 
courage to face the day for no one knows what lies ahead of them.

Courage is not the absence of fear BUT the commitment to overcome it 
Courage is required in our everyday life and must be constant 
Courage is also tiny pieces of fear glued together 

Tips below to help take the leap of faith into your next adventure:

Setting a standard that is scary
Going to University was scary for me, 
but I sat down and applied and got in. 
Was the journey easy? No it was not. 
I had to study when it was the right time
I was also trying to fit in with others. 

My last year was a disaster, 
I forgot my purpose of going to university so I failed 
Yes I failed, one subject and I could not get my degree. 
Did I walk away? No, it took courage to sit down 
and get the Physic degree I wanted.
It also took courage to get a job not related to what I studied. 

In this journey not only did I learn to be courageous 
but I also learned to be humbled. 
I did not have any experience so I asked and sat and listen 
One of many treasures that I hold to heart is 
we serve a big GOD, so setting a goal that is 
unattainable is what He specialises in. 
If I can attain it then it is not courage 
but if I go for something that is scary and makes me think:
 
Think about it, I walk away, I come back, 
I walk away again, and I come back again and 
I think to myself, oh no I can’t do this, 
then it is worth doing it 

Innovation reward: 
Rewards help with the growth and as 
humans having an incentive makes us want 
to set another mountain to climb.

Rewards helps us climb the mountain
BUT we should not do things for rewards: 
So what do I mean by Innovation rewards?
Taking part in the workplace, church group, 
university and anywhere with small groups
It gives a sense of purpose in life 
It also gives motivation to be part of the team

The key is getting involved where we find ourselves
In any group it is always good to contribute 
By giving ideas:
no idea is stupid, 
if you have thought about it then 
the chances are someone else has and 
it just happens that you have the courage to speak up 

Secondly, also getting a qualification or 
studying more into the topic areas is very good for the brain
Finding ways to improve the mind is a reward

Pursue the right opportunities 
Not every risk is a good one, sometimes it is good to say no
Learning to say no is the wisdom we need for life. 
You can never please everyone, if you try you end up pleasing no one.
If it is too good to be true then it is - one of the easiest clues. 
Opportunities will come, see the wisdom to choose the right one.

Learning to delegate:
It takes courage to let go and relinquish control
Not every job has to be done by you
Having the wisdom to know when to loose the string 
and trusting others to complete the task at hand takes a huge courage 
especially if you are someone who wants to be in control all the time. 

It is not easy but holding the string and letting it go 
very slowly will eventually become naturally to let the string go
This is something I am still getting the grips off
The string is still in my hand 
Because we sometimes put so much pressure on ourselves 
for the illusion of perfection. 
When nothing is perfect, 
we work not for perfection but for progress. 

What is the one thing you have put to one side? 
For tomorrow, tomorrow never comes
So no time like the present to face the giant
It takes strength and courage to 
Sling throw a stone at a giant
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

Express Your feelings

God’s splendor is a tale that is told; his testament is written in the stars. Space itself speaks his story every day through the marvels of the heavens. His truth is on tour in the starry vault of the sky, showing his skill in creation’s craftsmanship. Psalms 19:1 TPT

Just pure wow of the glory of God, words can not express how it makes me feel when I speak about You my Lord and Saviour. For the Earth only shows a glimpse of Your Majestic deeds. You do things that I never thought to do or imagine.

You made the trees and gave me the hands to work with it
The mind to build things that helps me everyday
Like having a table, chair and a bed to lie on. 
You gave me the mouth so I can speak 
You gave me the ears so I can hear
You gave me the eyes so I can see the glory of Your wonderful works.

Lord my soul cries, as I see the pit I was once in
And so many are still in it
I have left because You chose me

Lord help me to stop crying 

Who knew that all I needed was to touch You
And that made me better

Who knew that all I needed was to focus on You 
And the distractions go away

Who knew that I all I needed was to receive Your Love
And that made me love me and others

Who knew that the community You placed me in
Will one day take me and my mat up the roof to get to You

Who knew the thirst that I have everyday 
Was because I never knew You

Who knew that all I need is just You
Nothing else but You

The way
The Truth
The Life

Having You Lord Jesus
Brings life and the Love that can be shared and 
It rejoices in the truth that brings Peace 
To the heart and gives rest to the soul

Allowing us to wait patiently 
Makes us interact with others in Kindness
And Initiating the goodness of Your Love

Having You is the only way to resist temptation 
And be in control of our self

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart 
Be acceptable in Your sight,
O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer

Thank You for stopping by, May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble. May the Name of our Lord defend you.

Thank YOU Father, Son and Holy Spirit. May Your Name always be glorify.

Have a wonderful day.
Hannah Michaela. We cannot change what happens around us but we can change our responses. Stay safe and be bless, In Jesus Name. Amen.

As always, inspired by the Psalms, through the Holy Spirit.
