“Nugget of Information”

For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes in Him [whoever adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Him] will not be disappointed [in his expectations].”
 For there is no distinction between Jew and Gentile; for the same Lord is Lord over all [of us], and [He is] abounding in riches (blessings) for all who call on Him [in faith and prayer]. For “ whoever calls on the name of the Lord [in prayer] will be saved .” Romans 10: 11 - 13 AMP

Todays nuggets is about maintaining our connections and positivity with everyone:

It is so very weird, that I must admit when this whole crazy thing started I went to wearing my full armor of God and bashing the enemy with my sword. But as everyone else, I have slowed down until recently. I was reminded of a favorite verse that keeps me on my toes “Sin is crouching at your door you must master it – says the Lord” This verse is my favourite because of how Loving and Amazing God is. He will never scream and say what have done??? but will always encourage us to walk by faith not by sight. We see this in action as Jesus spoke to Martha. 

So as I am encouraged by our  Wonderful Holy Spirit daily, London is going to lockdown from Thursday. The whole world needs prayers, and so much craziness happening in the world. Our Prayers are needed and we need to stand by faith and believe in our God.

But Martha became exasperated by finishing the numerous household chores in preparation for her guests, so she interrupted Jesus and said, “Lord, don’t you think it’s unfair that my sister left me to do all the work by myself? You should tell her to get up and help me.” Luke 10:40 TPT

Become a better you:

To become a better me, the m needs to change to w flip it from me to we.

The truth is becoming a better me is definitely not to complain about what others are doing or not doing. I have been both of these sisters and I prefer Mary, the relaxed one which means 80% of the time I am Martha getting all worked up for no reason and you have to love the answer Jesus gave “Martha, my beloved Martha. Why are you upset and troubled, pulled away by all these many distractions? Are they really that important? Luke 10:41b 

As we go into the lockdown again I am reminded of what is really important to God, and that is choosing to sit at His feet. She is undistracted, and I won’t take this privilege from her.” Luke 10:41c

It is a privilege to sit at His feet, so becoming a better us is doing what He requires us to do and for us to do it. Me needs to be WE and that is the only way the body functions properly.

One habit at time: 

Sitting at the foot of Christ means we are focused and not distracted by the world. It is amazing how much work can be done when we do it one at time instead of multi tasking. 

One hand full of rest and patience is better than two fists full of labor and chasing after the wind. Ecclesiastes 4:6 AMP

Know your value to others: 

We are all one body and very valuable in the body of Christ. Not a single member in the body is less valuable for we are all chosen by Christ and as we hear His voice we become part of that body. He is the head, for without the head the body doesn’t function. Some are seen and some are hidden but we are all one in the Spirit. And very important to God.

Contribution brings satisfaction:

It is true when God says that the greatest is the servant among you, there is much satisfaction in bringing yourself to the table. The gifts God has given us is always for us, if you can sing don’t just sing in the shower but sing for your family. 

Look for opportunities to help others. Everyone has a need that we have in us to serve that need, some needs are just a listening ear or a smile.

One thing I am learning is that everything God gives us to do not only helps others but actually helps both parties participating. 

Impact on your outlook, your resilience and positivity:

Staying in the word of God gives us the resilience that we need and that brings about a positive aspect in life. 

Self respect and self worth is great because if you don’t love yourself you are not going to love someone else. The word of God lets us see ourselves as God sees us. 

When you fly on an airplane, the flight attendant instructs you to “put your oxygen mask on first,” before helping others. … Because if you run out of oxygen yourself, you can’t help anyone else with their oxygen mask. COVID19 is a very long flight and we need to put our mask on first (full armour of God) and that is the only way we are going to help each other out.

I know that this year has given us a challenge to provoke growth in us, remember to wear your mask and armour of God each day.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day.

The Holy Spirit is found in the Bible and nowhere else, always ask God for an encounter with Him and not by how others do it.

BUBBLES:

According to google bubbles defination: “used to refer to a good or fortunate situation that is isolated from reality or unlikely to last.”

Bubbles don’t last but our Humanity will last. In the UK we have our little bubbles or not depending on what is said. 

How we react now will either be regret later or praise?

Things that you can do to change for the future and to know that it is never too late to be committed to the people around you.

We might be in a bubble but we can have a phone call. Sometimes a phone call is all we need. 

Things to do while it is getting darker and the clock has moved forward and you need that motivation to get out of bed, also knowing that anything outside the duvet is not welcome except a cup of coffee or tea.

Get a journal or book near you so that every morning you write one word that will set you for the day. 

Always think of one thing in the morning that you will do, write it down and that gives you a purpose and meaning to get up. Set the day with one word – ‘healthy’ that could mean physical, mental or eating. But it will be a word to set your day and your focus. It could be ‘worship’ but setting our mind on that word means we focus on one thing.

Call someone: One of the things I have learned is not to wait for someone to call you but be the first to do it. If anything COVID19 has taught us this year it is not good to be isolated. 

Listen: Listening is action and requires our full attention and also a very good skill to have and practice daily. “Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry” James 1:19b 

That also includes listening to what our body is saying to us, like you need to sleep now and we ignore it until we actually can’t function anymore and fall asleep on the couch. Yes that is bad and should be avoided, I know sometimes we think we cannot help it but we can intentionally switch off and have rest. My motto is “Work can replace me if I die, so why kill myself over it” give it your all and have a break as well and don’t fall for the trap that says I will take a break when I need to because five hours later that one email needs you more than the break and you are still sitting down. Take a break regularly especially if you are on the screen always. 

But be careful “Do not love sleep or you will grow poor; stay awake and you will have food to spare.” Proverbs 20:13 NIV

I have purposeful sets alarm for breaks because I was that person I will do and never did it, and this has helped me to focus and know that when it goes off it is breaks time.  Me time to just relax, eat or just close my eyes.

Thanks so much for stopping by and below is a picture of my weekend of fun.

Hannah-Michaela. We can cannot change what happens around us but we can change our responses. Have a wonderful day and be blessed.

He likes me!

Teach me, Lord , the way of your decrees, that I may follow it to the end.
Psalms 119:33 NIV

No matter what we are going through, God not only LOVES us but He likes us individually and corporately.  Think about it, not only LOVE but LIKES you as you are. Especially our personality which is why we are all different like the colours of the rainbow. Inspired by The Book of Psalms and John.

The rainbow is a symbol of God’s refelection on us to bring His beauty into the world. The flower is just a gift of Love

O Lord God, You are my God
Early will I seek You
My soul thirst for You
My flesh longs for You

Because of Your Loving Kindness 
I have a life worth living
My lips will Praise You
My heart choose to walk with You 

In the morning when I get up 
My mind is already seeking 
to get attention in every direction
From all the wrong places

And they do not satisfy my hunger and thirst
It is only when I get to Your Word that 
I find myself relax, convicted and corrected
Why do I always choose You last?

I hunger and thirst daily for the food around me
But they do not satisfy me
You say fast, and pray and I say tomorrow
Only to find out that fasting is beneficial for the body

Why do I always choose You last
Why do I not listen and obey You
When all the things You say are to benefit me
To bring You glory and honour

I do long walks daily to get all 
The fear and anxiety out of my head
And You say to me come to me 
All who are weary and heavy laden 

And I will give you Rest
You give me the rest I never found in the world
Now when I do my long walks it is to see 
The beauty of Your Creation

That Power only belongs to You God
Also to You Lord belongs Mercy
When I let my hair out
When I smile in the mirror 

When I truly look at myself inwardly
It is because I know You truly like me
My personality with the ups and downs of life
You Father are always smiling down at me

You LIKE me!
Why? Because You say so and I will always trust You

Thanks for reading, it is for you to personalise it and know that GOD actually LIKES YOU. We don’t need proof because..

The Word becomes Flesh and dwelt among us
In Him was life and the life was the light of men
And that light shines in the darkness
And that darkness did not comprehend it

Jesus I Love you!
Yahweh I Love you!
Thank You for choosing me.
Have a wonderful day, knowing that God likes you.

I humble myself to You

Fall on my face and commit my all to You

“Be the Friend you want”

Along South Bank walk in the summer

A real friend will tell you what you need to hear. An enemy will tell what you want to hear.

No one is perfect and we all have blind spot which is why it is so good to have people around that tells you as it is.

We might not like it at the time but it is better than someone who just hangs on to every word you say and sees you making the same mistakes and not giving you any correction. Be a friend that doesn’t wait until your friend is in the pit and then run to be the hero when it no good. We all want that friend sometimes it is good for us to be that friend.

Always go directly to the person, If you go to someone else who is not part of the problem or the solution then it is gossip not love. “If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone.

God has not given us a Spirit of criticism, so don’t get carried away and start telling people off or challenging them. Be wise and listen to Him always.

When the occasion rise go to the person and loving, gently and humbly go for their sake because you care. Not because you have an agenda. Be the friend that you wish you had.

Thanks so much for reading.

“I love my mental health in good shape, the enemy is not the boss of me, my mind is not the boss of me. I am the boss of me. God is the head and has given me the authority and power to be me in every situation.” Take this and read it, personalised and make it your own. Take God seriously and don’t take yourself so seriously but have fun. Life is short and we only have one.
