Wonders!

Jesus was handed over to be crucified for the forgiveness of our sins
and was raised back to life to prove that he had made us right with God!
Romans 4:25 TPT
The wonders of God
Are you are not glad that His ways 
Are not our ways 
I am very glad, sometimes I don’t like it

So this week, it just been looking at wonders of the Lord 
The testimonies of all 
The growth of people

I love learning and so this week is learning week
Came to understand what Paul meant 
In the Bible, the Book of Romans 

Sometimes you want to do good 
I know that I should do it
I have no doubt this is the right thing
My mind tells, the Holy Spirit nuge me 
Scriptures come to my mind
Do I do it, NO 

But I don’t understand why I do not do it 
Yes, it is a nod, a shake in the head 
I did it again, I sit in silence and sigh
Why? Yeh I guess I look at my Lord 
I don’t understand, help me God
Not trying to justify 

But something in me just would not let me
For I do what I hate and practice it 

The flesh is weak and governed by the laws
The flesh is ruled by the laws 

For the Lord our God died so that Grace abounds within me
Grace triumph over the laws
For He came not to abolish it 
But to accomplish 
So sometimes it happens 

To teach us 
To correct us, 
To depend on Him 

For His Grace is all we need
For I am dead to sin 
And alive to God
For Christ said it is finish, the death 
that He died, He died to sin once and for all
But the life that He lives, He lives to God 
What a wonderful news 
So I glorify the Name above all names

Wonders are what you do
Wonders are what I see daily

Wonders is seeing the sunrise in the morning 
Feeling the breeze as I walk in the day

Wonders is seeing sunset in the evening 
And the chill of the breeze in my bones

Wonders never stop in all things 
Wonders is seeing a baby grow up

Wonders is knowing that I am the apple of Your eye
Wonders is knowing I am blessed

So I conclude this madness 
The flesh is the flesh and will be the flesh
So I will not set my mind on the things of the flesh
For it is weak, that I have come to understand

Madness I tell, it is not easy and that is the fun of it 
The Life with our Lord is challenging

I will not lean on my own understanding
I will set my eyes on You Lord 

For in You I have received the Spirit of adoption 
And I will cry out loud Abba Father
For I am joint heir with You Lord

In all the madness why run away from it 
If indeed we suffer with You Lord 
That we may also be glorified together
I Love the sound of that
I thank God through Christ Jesus our Lord

"We cannot change what happens around us but we can change our responses." 
The flesh is weak, don't depend on it.

The Lord fights for us!

'How truly wonderful and delightful it is to see brothers and sisters living together in sweet unity! 
It’s as precious as the sacred scented oil flowing from the head of the high priest Aaron, 
dripping down upon his beard and running all the way down to the hem of his priestly robes. 
This harmony can be compared to the dew dripping from Mount Hermon, 
which flows down upon the hills of Zion. 
Indeed, that is where Yahweh has decreed his blessings will be found, 
the promise of life forevermore!'

Psalms 133:1-3 TPT
Blessed are those who delight in the Lord
For it is in Him we find rest 

Though we see the week unfold
We sit and think and memories unfold 
All the hurt comes to the surface 
Indeed we know the true 

We are but mere mortals 
We cry out to our God to prove the innocence 
Of our loved ones
Though we wished to dispute 
Though they wished to silence

We take the case to our God 
His wisdom is profound 
His power is vast
Who has resisted Him and come out unscathed?

He moves the mountains
So in the midst of trails 
My mind look back to last year 
As I walked and felt the unloving nature of the heart of men

For God has created us 
We are His children 
He moves the mountains without us knowing 
He shakes the earth from its place 

He shines light in the darkness 
He speaks to the sun and it does not shine
He seals off the light of the stars 
He sees the heart of all

I have loved the week 
The sun had shine even with a cold wind
The sun brings a smile to my face 
The sun brings a smile to people’s faces

We look in anticipation and pleaded 
With our Lord for mercy 
We waited for a long time 
Even though we were innocent

We do not believe He would give us a hearing 
And we felt the crush with a storm 
Our wounds multiply as we look and wait 
As we hold our breath  

We are overwhelmed with misery 
If it is a matter of strength, it is only found in Him 
He is mighty, and a matter of justice, 
Who can challenge Him? No one is like our God

Only for a moment as wait 
I forget the troubles of the world 
I reflected on the events of the week 
I have found that events brings memories 

So I focus on my plants 
My plants are coming nicely and 
I decided to add another tree to the list 
Already have a pear and now cherry Duo

Can't wait to see them grow
So the week unfold and verdict is set 
A relief brings back a sigh 
And the journey to restoration starts 

For today we do not forget but let us 
Sing, O daughters of the earth 
Shout and pray!
Be glad and rejoice with all your heart
For we have waited for the Lord 

They have done violence to the Law 
The Lord is righteous in our midst 
He will do no unrighteousness 
Every morning He brings His justice to light

He never fails 
But the unjust knows no shame 
Therefore we will wait on the Lord 
For the Lord is always near to all

The mighty One will save 
He will rejoice over us with gladness
He will quiet us with His Love
He will rejoice over us with His singing

For early in the morning 
I hear the birds singing 
He comforts those who mourn
So our eyes look to the Lord our God

Blessed are the merciful
For they shall obtain more mercy.

Nothing compares to God!

'to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, 
through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.' 
Jude 1:25
capture the moments the flowers blowing in the wind to create an amazing effect in the sky
O Lord, You have searched me and known me
Everything there is to know about me You know
You understand every movement of my heart and soul
You understand every thoughts before it enters my mind

You know my sitting down and my rising up
You know the path I will take before I take it

You know all my ways 
Such knowledge is beyond my grasp
It is so high I cannot reach it
It is like flowers blowing in the wind

Oh how wonderful are Your ways 
The depth of Your riches both in wisdom and knowledge 
Is unsearchable and Your ways are untraceable
For who knows the mind of the Lord
 
Who has understood His thoughts 
Or who have come on anything like the generosity of God

Everything comes from Him 
Everything happens through Him 
Everything ends up in Him
 
For in the beginning was the word and word was with God 
Blessed be the name of the Lord forever and ever

For He is the Lord who
Reveals deep and secret things 
He knows what is in the darkness
And light dwells in Him

Your words are very precious to me
I keep it close to my heart 
I meditate on it
 
If I could count all the good things You have done 
They would be more in number than the sand 
When I wake up in the morning 
Your grace is sufficient for the day

Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God,
believe also in me.
In my Father's House are many mansions; 
if it were not so, I would have told you. 
I go to prepare  a place for you
John 14:1-2
My mouse mat, had it since 2002 from Prof. Gunther Von Hagens Körperwelten Fascination Beneath the Surface “the exhibition”

Hello and Welcome. Hope you had a good weekend 🙂

It has been a while since I went into the vault. A little story, I like stories, for life is one big story that happens on a daily basis and it is amazing to be part of this whole journey with Jesus. I love the look of the HEART and I love the spelling of it. You get so many little nuggets out of this one thing. The mind can stop working and you can still be kind of alive but the HEART is the main vessel when it stops that is it.

Below is a basic definition of the heart and a little inspired proverbs in my own words. This is information only! OH yes I do love the HUMAN body very fascinating!

THE HEART:

The heart is a hollow, muscular organ that is developed  by a membranous sac and is located behind the sternum. The size is about the size of a closed fist and is located between the lungs in the middle compartment of the chest and weighs an average of 300 grams. The heart pumps approx 70 ml of blood per beat 70 times per minute when at rest. 

As any other part of the organ, the heart has its own blood vessels that provide blood to nourish it which are called the Coronary system. When blocked or interrupted by an obstruction to the coronary artery can result in heart attack. (Dr. Angelina Walley, M.D. The Human Body – Anatomy and Function)

Heart failure is defined as a condition in which the heart is unable to pump enough blood to meet the demands of the body.

There are few illnesses that are not affected by diet and nutritional status, although some are affected more directly than others. In fact, some of the major diseases of the modern age such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and cancer are linked to poor nutrition.

In 2014 researchers pooled the results of 72 studies that had looked at the link between fatty acids and coronary disease (including heart attack, coronary heart disease and angina). They found no significant evidence that saturated fats increase the risk of heart disease and no significant evidence that omega-6 and omega-3 polyunsaturated fats protect the heart.

The researchers concluded that “current evidence does not clearly support cardiovascular guidelines that encourage high consumption of polyunsaturated fatty acids and low consumption of total saturated fats”.

So I sit and reflect on the human HEART

The physically organ thought of as 
being the seat of the affections

The modern day we see and look around 
But do we see with our eyes 
Do we hear with our ears 
The HEART wants what it wants 

It is in the HEART that we HEAR with our EAR
It is in the HEART that ART CREATIVITY comes out
It is in the HEART the HEAT of our passion is shown
It is in the HEART that only GOD know what goes on

As I reflect on the heart of what matters to God, don't be a fool. 
Life is life, you can be a fool 
If one walks around with head buried in the sand or 
you can be the one that trusts in the Lord and 
walks knowing that He saves not fearing but walking with HIM


In our generations with so many news:

Don’t be empty and fill 
Yourself with empty words

Don’t be lacking 
By listening to the gossip of others or participating in them

Don’t be unsatisfied 
By exploiting the poor, for the Lord sees and protects

Don’t be needy 
By envying the wicked

Don’t be wanting 
By becoming a borrower

Don't feel inadequate
For it is the glory of our God and Father that conceals things from us.

Thank you for stopping by.
This is inspired by the wonderful words of Book of Proverbs. As I reflect on the words of the King and how that reflects to our present moments. 

How do I see things that reflect the glory of our God? 
It is not easy, life in general is not easy. Ups and downs but that is life. 
All madness but I love it. Feel free to reflect and absorb it, we live in a world of quick solutions. 
It is always good to sit and enjoy the food, I mean chew the food, savour it and it will surprise you. 
You can taste all the flavours, it arises from all the sensors we have.

Daisy – Delight that we are in spring and summer is round the corner!

Southwark Park
Oh what a sight 
To look and behold the wild
And commonly found wild flower 

They can withstand anything 
They tolerate the mowing, grazing and trampling 
They spring back to life 
Oh daisy, I love to look at your beauty

The beauty in the day’s eyes  
For in the day when the sun 
Rises my eyes will behold unto you
For at night I cannot see you 
Because you take a rest and close up 
So I will come and see your beauty in the daylight
For you bring smile to my face

Your persistent and widespread growth
Brings joy to all who look at you
You have been a joy to the children 
As they join the stalks together to make a 
beautiful chain or a headband 
Oh how when we grow up we forget the delight 
And so all we do is look and walk away

Let my eyes always see the beauty 
The strong and persistent beauty 
The tolerant that you show 
You withstand all the trampling 

I close my eyes and I am in field 
Of daisies and I run and let the sun be on my face
And my hands behold the beauty that is all around me

Thank you for stopping by, stop and see the beauty around

Pleasure of the week!

Ask the Lord for rain in the springtime;
It is the Lord who sends the thunderstorms.
He gives showers of rain to all people,
And plants of the field to everyone.
Zechariah 10:1 NIV
Happy Friday and thank You Lord 
Faithful You are 
The weather was ever changing 
The entire week was warm, cold and raining 

In one day, the mysteries of the world 
Yesterday as I stepped out of my house 
One side was raining on the same street the other side was dry 
My front door floor was both dry and wet 
What a sight 

So I look at the floor and smiled 
Looked at the sky 
The beauty of the creator 
And my entire walk was singing and smiling 
Different songs combined together my own paraphrase version

Your mercy, O Lord is in the Heavens
Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds 
Your righteousness is like the great mountains
Your judgment are deeper than the ocean
O Lord You preserve man and beast
Your faithfulness is forever

Great is Your faithfulness
Great is Your faithfulness
Morning by morning 
New mercies I see
All I have needed Your hand has provided 

So I worshiped with these few lines in my head 
The whole hour and came home to listen to it-earworm
“Great is Thy faithfulness”
Thank the Lord for internet
The amazing thing is, so many versions online 
But I prefer the old version song

The way to defeat the enemy 
Worship, so I reflect on Yahweh 
I worshiped Him and I have decided to do some potted planting 
I pray for my plants and I was reminded of Jonah 
So I prayed to God to let me see the world in
His eyes with compassion for all creatures 
And the world I live in

So in my head, I started to think
Plants are easy they don’t argue back 
I try to argue, well I try to reason in my heart 
The grass weathers, the plants fade
But the word of God stands forever

All things are the beauty of God 
So I am documenting my plant and not getting attached to it 
They will die, eventually everything dies 
Maybe I should get a dog 
Then it is another responsibility
Will see may be I do want a dog, I like cats
But I don’t want to be the cat lady
Preference is dog if any animal to get my affection 
Sorry cats!

So this week my eyes has seen 
The King in his beauty and I have come 
To view the land that stretches far with all the beautiful flowers
The heavens are telling of the glory of God
And the expanse is declaring the work of His hands
The sky shows the majestic King  
In the beginning was the word and the word was with God 
The earth was without form 
The Lord spoke and behold we look at the beauty of His creation daily

So I smiled to my God 
I dance to my Father 
I sing to the Almighty 
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
To receive power and riches and wisdom
And strength and honour and glory and blessing

Thank You for stopping by. 
It means so much to me and 
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
One side rain and the other dry, it was an amazing site. Also seeing the plants grow is truly something to step out of the house for. Got some of the plants as gifts for my birthday and bought some.

Another Day of Thanksgiving!

Everyone LOOK!
Come and see the breathtaking 
wonders of our God
For He brings both ruin and revival.
He's the one who makes conflicts end
throughout  the earth,
breaking and burning 
every weapon of war

Psalms 46:8-9 TPT
How shall we sing the Lord's song
For it is good to sing praises to our God
For it is pleasant and Praise is beautiful

O Praise the Lord!
For His Mercy endures forever
Blessed be the Lord God Almighty

He created all creatures
Come and see the sky that shows the beauty
The beauty that is beyond words, that makes you breathless

Let us come before the Almighty in awe and wonder
Without electricity or gas, we have no fire
Without gossip we have love for one another

What a wonderful God we serve
Create in us a clean heart O God
To see Your glory and to reflect Your goodness 

Lord You have created the wise, so we see the world
Thank You God for the people that brings wisdom to us all
Thank You that they listen to You and share the Good news

To bring the body closer to You and glorify Your name
Thank You Lord that through Your wisdom a house is built
And our foundation is in You only

Thank You Father for the friendship we build along the way
For it is in this that when one is less able 
We have others to help in need

For a friend loves at all times 
And a brother is born in adversity
Thank You for the body of Christ 

That each part has a purpose 
And each part is different to help each other 
when in need we call upon Your Name

Oh give thanks to the Lord 
Make known His deeds among the peoples!
He is the Lord our God

Blessed be His name
Praise the Lord!
Sing to Him a new song

'A psalm of David. Adonai , who may dwell in Your tent? Who may live on Your holy mountain? The one who walks with integrity, who does what is right, and speaks truth in his heart, '

Psalms 15:1-2 TLV

Good Morning or afternoon or evening. You are welcomed doesn’t matter the time. 

Hope and pray you had a good Easter, the celebration of Christ Jesus, He is RISEN! Now that is good news. I learned something about the Easter egg to look at it from a different point, eggs represent a new life and so does Easter for all. It is not in the Bible but sure like the idea of new life, new hope and knowing that this is not it but life doesn’t end on earth, wow what a glorious day that will be. Praise be to the Father, Jesus Chirst and the Holy Spirit for walking with us in this journey.

Come with me, yes if this your first time then you should know. Life is a story and you can make it fun or miserable. The choice is yours. 

Come let us sit in the vault of treasure today. 

Thank you for stopping by, please note that this is information only. So I reflect on the way we process food and the different ways they are made. So today I look at Fermentation:

What is Fermentation?

Fermentation is used everywhere in the world, throughout history, it is simply the form of food preservation that does not require any heat or artificial energy source.

With no oxygen, microbes (or microorganism is a microscopic organism which may exist in a single-celled form or a colony cells) can convert sugars into acids, alcohol and gas

Why do we ferment foods?

Fermentation in food processing – converting carbohydrates to alcohol or organic acids using microorganisms – yeasts or bacteria under anaerobic conditions

Fermentation microbes are often the same as the ones found in the gut, so eating fermented food can be a way to top up the gut flora.

Fermentation are not only used to preserve foods but Ferment foods are used because they serve: 

  1. To enrich the diet through development of a diversity of flavours, aromas and textures in food substrates
  1. To preserve substantial amounts of food through lattice acid, alcohol, acetic acid and alkaline fermentations
  1.  To enrich food substrates with protein, essential amino acids and vitamins
  1. To eliminate anti nutrients 
  1. To reduce cooking time and the associated use of fuel

Some of foods that are Fermented:

Different methods of fermentation are used in breadmaking, alcoholic drinks and vinegar production, making yogurts and cheeses; pickling fruits and vegetables, curing meats; making soy and fish sauces; softening olives and removing bitterness and the production of chocolate from cocoa beans

Fermented milk:

Milk has a very short shelf-life but when fermented can last for months. This range from yogurt fermented for a few hours to large cheeses prepared over many months.

Fermented soya

Soya beans have high levels of protein and oil which is extracted as a kind of milk. Fermented soya also produce diverse outcome similar to milk such as miso paste used in soups and seasoning to tempeh which is a cultural soya bean cake

Fermented cucumber

Cucumbers are turned into pickles using lattice acid bacteria and brine with five to eight percent salt concentrated

Pray you have a wonderful week 🙂

And I also pray that this verse refreshes you this week: 
Acts 20:24 TLV
'However, I don’t consider my life of any value, 
except that I might finish my course and 
the office I received from the Lord Yeshua , 
to declare the Good News of the grace of God. '

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

Bermondsey beach, southwark, London: What a beautiful sight, seeing the city.

In the dark

I cry for what has happened 
I could not come to terms with it
I could not see the ending 

My eyes shed tears
My eyes closed 
My eyes saw a clear picture, focused on You

The Lord rebuked satan
The Lord who has chosen all, rebuke you!
The Lord looked at the filthy clothing on the High Priest

And He is Holy for He said to the angels, take off the filthy clothing 
And the Angels took the filthy clothing off

For He was covered with sins and iniquity of the world 
For He came from earth with the soil of dirty 

See I have removed your inequity 
See I have cloth Him with rich robes of Holiness
See I have crown Him with crown that reflect His Kingship

And now I have a High Priest in Holy of Holies
And now I know that no weapons formed against me will prosper

Thank you for stopping by 
Have a blessed day
It is the preparation day 
Look to the Father and see His Love 
Through His Son Jesus Christ

Happy Good Friday!

Don't burn out; keep yourself fuelled and aflame. 
Be alert servants of the Master, Cheerfully expectant. 
Don't quit in hard times; pray all the harder. 
Help needy Christians; be inventive in hospitality. 
Romans 12:12 MSG

I have missed the plays, the theatre, the live shows: In the UK, in the past years on Good Friday a play is shown in Trafalgar Square about the resurrection of Christ. People come together and watch the show. 2019 the last show, who new!

For He moved into the neighbourhood and they accepted His gifts and hospitality and then we see they crucified Him, betrayed Him, Sold Him and yet still He loved them and us. Now we get to see His glory and let Him move into our neighbourhood.

Good Friday: The day the Lord has made 
This week I call the pursuit and reflection 

For the word became flesh and made His home among us 
That is wonderful as we gaze upon His glory
The glory of the One and Only 
Who came from the Father 
Overflowing with tender mercy and truth

The Son, let all the angels worship Him
Let everything that has breath Praise the Lord
Your throne, O God is forever and ever
As You sit at the throne 
All enemies are now Your footstool

What is man that You are mindful of him
Or the son of man that You take care of him?
I will declare Your Name to my brothers and sisters
Online or offline I will sing Your praises

And again I will put my trust in You
For You came and free all against the power of death
Our lives was born of the flesh and slavery
When You rose from death 

You too the key
And freed us all from the fear of death 
And became the Priest forever 
According to the order of Melchizedek

For You are Holy, Blameless, Pure 
Set apart from sinners, 
Exalted above the Heavens
You have been made perfect forever

I adore You, For He is risen
And my life has never been the same

The Garden

Keep alert and pray that you'll be spared 
from this time of testing. 
For the spirit is eager enough, 
but your humanity is feeble
Mark 14:38 TPT

Taking a break from the Unknown and taking a seat in the garden and watching the Lord Jesus Christ. 

The Garden: I Love the Garden this garden shows me that it is not easy but the will of God will overcome any obstacle I face. I need to stand strong and know that the Lord overcame it all and all things are possible with God. His will is my will. As I reflect on the day that our Lord and Savior was in the garden. Imagine it, watch and pray. See Him in the garden, be in the garden and give glory to the Father.

Lord Jesus was troubled and distressed
His Soul is deeply grieved even to the point of death
Remain in the garden and be alert
For the devil prowls like a lion
and ready to devour you

Oh how wrong was I to not listen
For the flesh is weak
I see the day, I see the struggle and 
I see You overcome the flesh

Yes, my Lord You listen to the Father
Abba Father all things are possible with You
Take this cup away from Me
Nevertheless not what I will but what You will

Lord God, lead me not into temptation
My eyes will fail me
But my Spirit is willing to serve
Lord let Your will be done in my life.

Lord Jesus, of great pain You knew what lies ahead 
You were familiar with sickness 
And in the garden, as You pray we sleep
Lord that did not deter You from the purpose 

You did not give up
Father let Your will be done in our lives.
As the day goes by
I do let the cares and worries of the world 
Get in the way of my prayer life

I sit and worry and sleep because my eyes are heavy 
I rest and sleep because the flesh is weak
Oh how my spirit is willing 
Father give me the strength to run this race 
In the spirit that You want me to
Let Your will be done.
