'And we know [with great confidence]
that God [who is deeply concerned about us]
causes all things to work together [as a plan]
for good for those who love God,
to those who are called according to His plan and purpose. '
Romans 8:28 AMP
Instead of shame, You clothed us with righteousness
And called us sons and daughters
In Christ Jesus
I will greatly rejoice in the Lord
My soul shall be joyful in my God
For my God has clothe me in the garments of His Salvation
He has covered me with the robe of His Righteousness
In Him I have found light
The sun is not longer my light by day
Nor is the brightness of the moon by night my light
But the Son is now my everlasting light
And all glory and honour belongs to the Father
It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
And to sing praises to Your Name, O Most High
To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning,
And Your faithfulness at night
On an instrument of ten strings
On the lute,
And on the harp,
With harmonious sound.
For You, LORD, have made me glad through Your work
I will triumph in the works of Your handsPsalms 92:1-4
Welcome to my vault, come in, it is very lovely that you dropped by.
Half way in the year
The days are longer yet the winter is not far off
Wait a minute the leaves will start to fall soon
The wine goes down smoothly
Moving gently the lips
Oh let us go outside and enjoy the day
Let us go early to the fields
Let us see the beautiful flowers
The fragrance are pleasant to the soul
All manner of flowers new and old
Let us drink of the spice of life
It is that time of the year to enjoy the longer days with family and friends
Get your Vit D as well
Hope you had a wonderful weekend, this weekend was, ehm, well it was focused on God. Should I say everyday should be. On Saturday we had a guest speaker – Ginny Burgin.
Her testimony and the worship songs, invoked my soul, challenged my thinking. We were very much focused on worshipping the Lord. I am not sure how I can explain it but the songs did not focus on me and that was a different experience. The songs focused on God, in the midst of glorifying the Lord, healing and peace is surrounding us.
Yes it was good to be in the company of others glorifying the Lord our God
It is always good to worship God by yourself in daily work of life and corporately as we meet on Sundays or any other day.
The faithfulness of God
Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God
The Rock that I stand on
We give thanks to You, O God, we give thanks!
For Your wondrous works declare that Your Name is near
Faithful God, You are who You say You are
If the wind and wave can obey my Saviour Jesus
Then my soul we can put to side our feelings
And follow the Lord our God
He is the same yesterday,
He is the same today and
He will be the same forever
Yes my soul, our Lord is bigger than anything we face
And so we were reminder that everything is a process
Like a staircase, we take one step at a time
Let your gaze shift from the things around
To our Heavenly Father
Our Father in Heaven
Hallowed be Your Name
Your Kingdom come
Your will be done
On earth as it is in Heaven
Give us our 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.
Come and welcome to the vault. Hope you enjoyed your weekend and it is always a joy when you stopped by. I was having a look around and thinking of the food we should eat. Things that help our digestion and also help to get rid of the unwanted stuff out of our systems.
Today, just looking at the facts about a high fibre diet
High fibre diets reduce calories while increasing fibre. It focuses on eating plenty of vegetables and whole grains which is in line with the government guidelines on healthy eating.
High-fibre foods also need a lot of chewing, which means you eat slowly and gives the body a chance to register when you are full before you overeat
People on high fibre diets need an increase in Iron because fibre also impairs their ability to absorb iron from food
If possible leave the skin on fruit to maximise fibre intake.
Fibre also helps keep the gut healthy by bulking out and softening your stool and reducing the time it takes to pass through the bowel. This can reduce constipation
However, if your water intake is not increased then it can cause short-term constipation.
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who
are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh,
but according to the SpiritRomans 8:1
Samson and Delilah:
It one of the Judges that I knew as a child and also possible my favourite
I see ones foolishness of walking alone and with no counsel
Alone you are vulnerable and you cannot see the blindspots
Samson had a blindspot like us
Two are better than one
In midst of many blindspot
One can help the other
Though one may be overpowered
Though one may be overshadowed
Two can withstand the schemes of the enemy
Two can empower each other
Threefold cord is not so easily broken
I know that whatever God says He is going to do
He will do it
And so I turn to myself to consider the wisdom and madness and folly
For what can we do if not learn from the mistakes we do or see
The world is full of madness
Then I saw that it is better to have wisdom and be consider a fool to the world
Than to be a fool that walks in darkness
Yet I myself perceived that the event happens to all
My soul as it happens to the fool
It also happens to us
All this is vanity
So I listened to Samson and wondered why?
That is not the question to ask, he says!
Follow me, for we do things that we don’t want to do
I am under the law and we know that the law is spiritual
But I am carnal sold under sin
For what I am doing, I do not understand.
For what I will do, that I do not practice; but what I hate that I do
But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.
The words of Paul in Romans echoes in my heart and a different lens is put on.
And she bound him
Oh Lord she did bound!
The folly of the woman continues
She insists on love yet she doesn’t
Today hear the voice of the Lord
The seductress will call upon your name
and entice you into her bed
Yes she does for her ways may seem right
But she does it to lead you into further darkness
Do not walk past her for all she wants is your life
She sits by the gates and waits
Like a lion ready to devour its prey
Now therefore listen to voice of Lord
And gain knowledge in His presence
Wisdom calls and understanding is only
found in the house of Lord
Samson could run
He knew what she was like
But he didn't
because God had a different plan
God always has a different plan to ours
For His ways are not ours
and whatever the enemy meant for evil
God uses for good
Because the light is far better than darkness
Thank the Lord Jesus for showing us that we can put to death the flesh
Because of His righteousness
Thank the Lord Jesus for His compassion that when we do walk in the flesh
We are corrected and not condemn
Because the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead
Is the same Spirit that lives in us giving us life
Giving us the peace that one cannot understand or fathom
It is never too late with the Lord
As long as there's life then forgiveness is closer than we think
So I know that I have no debt to my flesh
To walk in the flesh
For I am a daughter of the Lord
O LORD GOD, remember me, I pray!
Strengthen me, I pray
Just this once, O GOD
57:'Then my soul shall rejoice in the Lord ; It shall rejoice in His salvation.
All my bones will say,
“Lord , who is like You,
Who rescues the afflicted from him who is too strong for him [to resist alone],
And the afflicted and the needy from him who robs him?” 'Psalms 35:9-10 AMP
My soul come let us glorify the Lord our God!
Stand up and bless the Lord your God
Stand up and shout His glorious Name
Stand up and sing praises to our God
Forever and ever!
Blessed be the Name of our Lord
Which is exalted above all other names
You alone are the Lord
All glory and Honour to Your Name!
You alone made the Heavens
You alone created the earth and everything in it
You alone made the sea and all that is in them
Glory to the Lord that preserves them all!
Your faithfulness reaches up to the sky
Your righteousness is like the great mountains
Your judgement are a great deep
Praise be to the Lord, and let His Name be magnified!
'Wait for and confidently expect the Lord ;
Be strong and let your heart take courage;
Yes, wait for and confidently expect the Lord .'
Hi and welcome! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. WOW it is June already and it has been a while since I visited the vault. Come, let’s sit and I will give you a snap of the weekend. It was a four day weekend as we celebrated the Queen’s Jubilee. Seventy years in service, I don’t know about you but seventy years in one job has got me the hives. God bless and protect The Queen.
I enjoyed the weekend, watched the planes and walked around the streets of London enjoying the festival spirit and we were blessed with no rain. Rain is a blessing to us but I was glad we celebrated with no umbrella or raincoats.
What a weekend it was!
In the early hours of Saturday morning, I hear the sound of music playing as I woke up.
Just as my eyes open all manner of thoughts start to formulate
Learning to live the life I was created and guess what the enemy is around.
So I let my head ponder the path of my feet and surrender to the will of God to establish my day.
And so I lay my head down and listen as SILENT enters the room
Willing myself to just be in the moment enjoying the SILENCE
It was deafening and welcomed
SILENT yet the fear of the future comes
SILENT yet the Lord is my strong Tower
For He knows all my plans
He knows my thoughts before
It registers in my mind
He is the Lord of peace
He is the Lord that gives HOPE
He is the ONLY one that knows my future
And makes sure that I walk in that path
SILENT even when unwanted thoughts comes to over take
The Lord is my Rock
I will cry out to Him
He will not be silent to me
For He is my Salvation
SILENT who made the Heavens and Earth
Our Father, The Creator of the universe
All other things in the world are worthless
Their works are nothing
They are nothing but a wind and confusion
To change the path of the righteous
SILENT let all listen to the voice of the Lord
For in His presence we have freedom
Take time out to LISTEN
For God is speaking are we listening
The Lord our God is a Promise Keeper
And He keeps all His Promises!
'For I know the plans and
thoughts that I have for you,’
says the Lord ,
‘plans for peace and
not for disaster,
to give you a future and
a hope. '
Jeremiah 29:11Thank You Father for another day
Thank You Holy Spirit for guiding my footsteps
Moving in the direction
Thank You Jesus for my salvation
For You Lord are my LIGHT and my STRENGTH
You, Father are my exceedingly great reward
I give You praise and honour
In Jesus Name
