I hope all is well with you
and that you are as healthy in body
as you are strong in spirit. '
3 John 1:2 NLT
I rejoice always in the Lord
Knowing that I am never alone
And let us never give up on meeting others
I lift my eyes to the Lord
I bow down and worship the King of kings
I exalt the Lord my God maker of Heaven and earth
Your servant sit at Your feet
Your servant want to be in Your presence
Your servant want to worship You Lord
My soul let us look to the Lord our God
My heart let us come to the Holy One
My mouth let us speak of His goodness
'Jesus replied, “I am the bread of life.
Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again.
Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.
But you haven’t believed in me even though you have seen me.
However, those the Father has given me will come to me,
and I will never reject them.
For I have come down from heaven to do the
will of God who sent me, not to do my own will.
And this is the will of God,
that I should not lose even one of all those he has given me,
but that I should raise them up at the last day.
For it is my Father’s will that all who see his Son
and believe in him should have eternal life.
I will raise them up at the last day.”'John 6:35-40 NLT
Does this offend you?
What then if you should see the Son of Man ascend where He was before?
The LORD Lives!
Does this offend you?
Blessed be the Rock of my Salvation
Let God be exalted
Hello Everyone! Scream and shout
The Lord lives indeed
Come to Him all who are thirsty
Come to the waters
For everyone who drinks of the water that
The Lord gives will never thirst again
All who have no money
Come, buy and eat
Yes, come for we are all His children
For money is not valued in His Kingdom
Blessed be the Lord our God
For in times when all things seem chaotic
I know that it is not from our God
For You Lord are not a God of confusion
When there seems to be pressure
From everywhere, the lid on the pot seems to not stand still
That is not from You Lord
I know that You only lead
Through the Holy Spirit
No force, no intimidation
But pure Love and You never give up
So I set time to spend in Your presence
For what is man that You will want to be around us
For my soul is full of troubles
When I sit and want to wallow in self pity
In the darkness, Your light shines
Showing me the way out, giving me a chance
To have life and to not waste away in self pity
Who is mighty like You, O Lord?
You carry me away like a flood
You bring me to the land of the living
That I may praise Your Name
Yes, the Lord Lives indeed
Bless be the Rock of my Salvation
For the Lord has chosen
'And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing.
Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right,
and pure, and lovely, and admirable.
Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
Keep putting into practice all you learned and
received from me—everything you heard
from me and saw me doing.
Then the God of peace will be with you.'Philippians 4:8-9 NLT
Think deeply, plan mentally and consider silence
For we are light bearers and not by itself
How can we light up?
A lamp light needs to be plugged in
Growing up in Africa, we had the kerosene lamp
It needed to filled with kerosene, you need wick,
You need a match and then it gives the light
So what makes me think I can be a light without
The Lord Jesus, His word and The Holy Spirit
Above all, letting go of the Hand of God
What makes me think I can do this alone?
Truly I tell you, like the kerosine lamp
I need a wick, I mean my head screwed right
For sometimes I wander off, but
What a wonderful God we serve
For He is so patient, even I get tired with myself
But He never does, The Lord is always encouraging
He is a very good, it is absolutely good to spend time with Him
To think about God and praise Him always
When I need my voice in my head to stop
going in the direction that it should not be going
All I need is to mediate and think about what is good and true
Finally, I started to get it. Well am not dead
So it is not late, it is never too late
I tell you, think about what you are thinking
Because it can get spirally
And I tell you to unravel it is not impossible
But we don't want to get to that stage
No we do not want that
So whatever is noble think about it
Well that should be easy
I am a child of the King of kings
So it should be easy, now now
Let us meditate on His word, for it is gift
To be noble, to think noble that can
Only be found in Christ Jesus
I don’t have the power, it was given to me
As gift not to be taken as granted
So I rejoice in the Lord my God
He gives us plenty of opportunities
To be a blessing to others
But I must remember to always meditate on His word
For the word of the Lord will never return void
Listen to Him, because He gets the last word
Do not let pride overcome you
For that leads to the darkest path
And before our feet stumble into death
Hear the words of the Lord
Give glory to the Lord
Lift up your eyes and see
Away from everything that doesn’t bear fruit
Things that seems like a good idea
Don’t wander off like a lost sheep
Stay close, He is worthy of our patient
Oh, my heart sings
You are worthy of it all
I let go and focus and meditate on Your word
For the Lord is Holy
Our fathers trusted in You
They trusted and You delivered
You are the same Yesterday, Today and Forever
I love You my God and my Saviour.
'I have come in my Father’s name,
and you do not accept me;
but if someone else comes in his own name,
you will accept him. '
'How can you believe since you accept glory
from one another but do not seek the glory that
comes from the only God ? '
John 5:43- 44 NIV
There is something profound that happens
to the heart and lets the brain accepts it
the testimonies of the One and Only Son of God
We can search the world for answers
We can have all excuses
But there is only One that has the answers
My heart truly rejoices in the Lord
Dear friends, the answers is not far away
Sit by the fire and enjoy the presence of the Lord
Share in His goodness by the fire
How can one cleanse His way?
By listening to Your word
With my whole heart, I will seek You, Lord
Oh let me not wander from Your commandment!
Your word I have hidden in my heart
For it is a lamp to my feet
And a light to every path I take
I am Your servant, Lord God
Your testimonies I have taken as a badge of honour forever
For they are the rejoicing of my heart
Your testimonies are wonderful
Therefore my soul keeps them
And write them down and never forget
When I think of all the goodness that You have done
Rivers of water run down my eyes
For my heart cannot contain it
I rejoice at Your word
As one who has found the greatest treasure
For Your word is indeed a treasure
My soul keeps Your testimonies
And I love them exceedingly
I keep them and share them
For all my ways are before You
My lips shall utter Your praise
My tongue shall speak of Your word
For when I went astray like a lost sheep
You seek Your servant
You bought me back and redeem my soul
I will lift up my eyes to the heavens
For my help only comes from You Lord
The Maker of Heaven and Earth
Sing to the Lord, all the earth;
Proclaim the good news of His Salvation from day to day
Delcare His glory among the nations,
His wonders among all peoples.
For the Lord is great and greatly to be praised
He is also to be feared above all gods
1 Chronicles 16 : 23-25 NKJV
Hi and welcome to my vault :), hope you had a good weekend. It is always a pleasure that you stopped by: I love to just sit and listen and watch.
I love to see growth.
When I plant it is so amazing to see them grow into what they are meant to be.
Think of how God feels and sees us when we grow into what He has made us to be.
We are all His workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works
Just like I don’t see the root but just the end product
God sees the root and knows how it will grow and shape
He also knows that weeds grows alongside
Guess what? Our root and foundation are stronger than the weeds
Be bless and know that God loves you so much
Jesus reigns overall
I was standing in the vault and this is what caught my attention. We eat a lot of different foods, and it is good to know a little about them: I like potatoes but in the UK they are not vegetable, they are class as starchy foods
FUN FACTS: The Potato Became the First Vegetable Grown in Space with Help from Wisconsin
Starchy foods: Potatoes, bread, rice, pasta and other starchy carbohydrate:
One third of the food we eat each day should be bread, rice, pasta, potatoes and other starchy foods.
Although they can be rather tasteless and bland they are a good source of energy and the main source of a range of essential nutrients including fibre, protein, Calcium, Iron and Vitamins B.
They were first grown as food crops in South America more than 7000 years ago and can be found throughout America, from Canada to Southern Chile.
It was introduced to Europe from America in the second half of the 16 century by the Spanish.
Today they are staple food in many parts of the world and an integral part of much of the world’s food supply.
Also known for its content of being high in starch and a large proportion of this is in the amylopectin which is easy to digest. Therefore potatoes have a high Glycaemic Index (GI)
GI is a measure of how quickly a carbohydrate-containing food raises the blood sugar level when that food is eaten by itself.
GI by itself is not a good indicator of whether food is healthy.
Potatoes are also rich in Vitamin C, antioxidants, Vitamin B6 and Potassium. Most of these nutrients and the fibre are the skin. Apart from water, potatoes consist mainly of starch and also contain some fibre, protein and almost no fat.
Potatoes are prepared in many different ways: skin-on or peeled, whole or cut up, with seasonings or without. The only requirement involves cooking to swell the starch granules.
Different methods of cooking potatoes affect the relative amounts of nutrients which would affect the components by driving off more or less water and also by adding components such as the extra fats during frying.
When boiled or baked, potatoes have relatively the same nutrients as raw potatoes but significantly different in chips and crisps because it is fried in oil and that makes the potatoes absorb fat and reduce the water content.
They are used in a variety of processed food due to low cost
Potatoes Starch: Used as binding agent in some ingredients such cakes mixtures, biscuit
Potatoes are also used to brew alcoholic beverages such as vodka
They are found in a variety of foods and one of the least allergenic foods tested.
Also originated in South America but now popular in many countries are sweet by nature which is from an enzyme that breaks down their starch into maltose, a sugar that is sweeter than table sugar. They contain a large amount of beta carotene, minerals and plant oestrogens.
“Beta Carotene is converted to Vitamin A in the body”
