“Treasure Trove of Information”

'He made His wonders memorable. 
Adonai is gracious and full of compassion. '

Psalms 111:4 TLV
Looking at different angles of light: Burgess Park, Southwark, London

Good Morning, Good Afternoon or Good Evening and what a beautiful day. 

A day to give thanks to the Almighty God 

A day to sit at the feet of Jesus and know that He is Lord 

Good to see you and Happy to walk with you today. The Vault calls and sometimes the treasures are best to look at, absorbed, pondered and give a testimony of the goodness.

In Church we continued our series on Revelation: The Lord always gives fresh manna

As I reflect on His words and knowing that 

He sees each and everyone of us
He compliments our work 
He gives us encouraging words 
He gives us warning to change and the words that I seem to see is 

Revelation 2:29 NKJV: He who has an ear, let Him hear what the Spirit says to the churches

The choices and Grace given to us everyday.

Grace is given to us each day 
Grace is not earned 
Grace is enough for today 

With Grace comes energy to move 
The ability to think
The time to prepare, 
The resources to work in life
The patience we need in that time
Grace is always enough to spare for others and yourself on that day

What a wonderful God we serve!
Grace always comes with extra on the day
Because the God we serve is generous and gives us more than enough 

Choosing to abide in God 
Choosing Jesus means having the right attitude 

Having Grace in our lives means having lots of rooms 
No matter how the rooms look or feel 
should never deter us from entering
With generosity and thankfulness 
And also sharing and bringing the light into the room 
Not complaining and disputing 
But holding fast to the Word of life 

We have a good reason to be glad and to rejoice 
Encouraging one another in the Lord 
Seeking the things which are of Christ Jesus, forsaking oneself 

Grace gives us a reason

For we are all God’s workmanship 
All things are gifts from the Father

Rejoice, He is generous and not partial 
We all have a purpose and reason to be alive
Do not tempt the Lord as some did 
And killed by the poisonous serpents

As I reflect and ponder and absorb 
I have come to understand 

How easy it is to take things for granted 
How easy it is to just complain

Also I have come to see that 
complaining makes us age faster

Does it change the situation? 

Well in my opinion, it gives 
Gray hair and unnecessary stress - just my theory 

So the words of our Lord
Written in my hearts and reminds me 
Do not be afraid 
I am the First and the Last

May these words echo in my brain 
May these words become part of my heart 
When I am afraid 
I will remember Your words 
Lord Jesus, give me a new heart 
And a spirit that follows You
Thank you again for stopping by it means a lot to me. 

Pray you have a wonderful week 🙂
We cannot control what happens around us, 
but we can control our responses.
Be bless and know that the Lord loves you

And I also pray that this verse refreshes you this week: 
'However, 
I consider my life worth nothing to me; 
my only aim is to finish the race and 
complete the task the Lord Jesus has given 
me—the task of testifying to the 
good news of God’s grace. '
Acts 20:24 NIV

Adjust my gaze

'So the Pharisees and teachers of religious law asked him, 
“Why don’t your disciples follow our age-old tradition? 
They eat without first performing the hand-washing ceremony.”'

Mark 7:5 NLT
Burgress Park-Southwark Park. London
As I ponder on the words of Jesus:

The people honour Me with lips 
But their hearts is far from Me
And in vain they worship Me
Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men

Why oh why do we like imaginary boxes 
The Lord our God is vast and beyond our comprehension 
The Lord creates and can not be contain in a box 

Yes to Jesus 
Yes to Him alone - 

I have come to understand that saying Yes is 
Saying no to the things that pleases my flesh
And constantly adjusting my eyes that wanders around 

As I continue to  ponder to myself
Is the old life completely gone? 
Not a chance, it creeps in slowly 

Life is accustomed to and feel good moments
Life likes familiarity 

Yes to Jesus 
Means not walking alone 
Is it easy? Of course NOT

See this week, 
we have showers of blessings in London
No surprise, It is always raining

Boy was I glad, 
I didn’t have to water my potted plants
So on Thursday no rain, 

Well I checked up on my plants, 
the leaves are out wow
You will not believe it
 
I see something I did not plant 
Oh dear this is not good
 
Weeds - I saw weeds 
My eyes widely open - 

with questions 
How did you get in here?
What does it mean? 

So these weeds are sprouting 
from the gaps between the stones
In life as I ponder, I have gaps too
 
Days when I just want to look inwardly 
Days when I don’t anything but me 

These are the days the gaps are created  
And these gaps makes me lose focus

They bring  doubts and fears 
They make me look with the wrong lens on 
They make me think everyone is against me

As I ponder on what to do
I saw Him and all He wants is to be with me

He is part of my life
Not only when I want Him to be 
He should be with me all the time

Life is not easy, 
the weeds will sprout 
when we are flourishing

When water is good and 
I am soaked in His word 
When I am vulnerable 

It is easy to be distracted 
Watch and pray 
Be alert always 

Yes I decided not to pull all the weeds out
Well I also wanted to see what they will be like 
when the time is right 

I can distinguish them and pull them out
Very exciting news
 
For now they stay
I read up that some can be a good flower 
Who knows, we will see

So looking at the weeds 
In the quietness 

In my own craziness 
I look at the sky 
The sky proclaim the work of His hands

Consider and hear me, O Lord my God
Make my eyes sparkle again
Lest my eyes wonder and fall into the trap of death

So I went for a walk - to burgess park 
It is a very big park, looking at the green trees and just enjoying nature 

I trust in Your unfailing love 
My heart rejoices in Your salvation
 
I will sing the Lord’s praise 
For He has been good to me

As I ponder on the words of Jesus

Trust and relax

'Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? '

Matthew 6:25
Do not worry about anything 
Your life, what you will eat or what you will drink  
I thank my God everyday
In all my prayers, that the Joy of the Lord will always be our strength

Our Father knows what we want and gives before we even ask.
As a result, it has become clear that we should not worry,
Why worry? It is always easier said than done
But the strength is not my own

It is true that we sometimes worry 
But it never brings any results 
So I sit and reflect on the words of the Lord
As the He walks in the cool of the day

In the beginning 
Where Adam and Eve hide themselves
But our God is so compassionate and sees 
The Father that knows exactly what they had done

He gives us chances and will never ever give up 
Where are you?
So this theme is stuck in my head this week.
Where can I hide?

If I run to the heavens, You are there 
If I hide under my bed, You are there
If I run to the pit, You are there
Why?

Because You are the Father that cares
Giving us chances to repent and forgive 

I had my first vaccine, Astrazeneca, 
on Saturday, at 8:15 am. 
It was a nice walk in the morning from my house to the centre
It is not scary, I don’t like needles and it was painless

And I refused to listen to fears and focus on God
I said to myself, I will guard my heart and my ways 
Lest I sin with my tongue

Surely everyone walks about like a shadow
Surely they busy themselves in vain
Surely every man is a vapor

Yes surely I have been told I look at the shadows
I don’t look, but I see it and know I have the light
Shadows are there only when there is light 

With light we have shadows and 
With no light darkness covers the earth
But who do we focus 

Nothing happen, after taking the vaccine. thank God
I took paracetamol before the vaccine 
So I was happy that I had no side effect 

And on Sunday, taught to my myself 
I will pamper myself before church 
After having a nice hot bath

All of a sudden a panic
Mind you I was in a hot bath, but the feeling was different 
In the midst of this, my forehead was heating up 

It was dripping with sweat 
My mind was racing
I stopped to think and also 
push away the negative thought bubbling up

Like a balloon been blown up 
No, no I did not want this balloon to explode
I started to Pray

In all this busyness and distraction 
was a little nudge to sit
Which could have been missed

So I listened and sat down
Very quiet, focused and relaxed  
My breathing was calming down

The room was quiet 
The mind was quiet
For once it was silent everywhere

But all that dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadows of the Almighty
So I said to my Lord, He is my refuge and strength 

He is my healer, my God in Him I trust.
As I relax on the sofa 
He covered me with His feathers 

Under His wings I was refreshed 
His truth was my shield and buckler

I was not afraid of the terror 
Nor the thoughts that wanted to over take me 
I was calmed and relaxed 

The blanket of the Lord was over me and 
I was alive again, all panic and fever that was inflated 
The air in balloon was open and it deflated slowly

As I relax in the shadows 
I knew then what it means not to worry 

Our Father who art in Heaven
Let Your will be done 
Through Christ Jesus who strengthen us

God is good and loves us so much 
He looks for us, knowing what we have done
He sent His son to pay the sins that we should have paid for 

So, where are you? 
No need hiding because He knows what we have done

He chooses us before the creation of the world
He sees us and came to rescue everyone
This is very much good news

I pray that this weekend and everyday
you experience the blanket of God
A Fathers love is very precious 
For this love brings live into us
In Christ Jesus

By Grace we have been saved through Faith
It is a gift of God, and no one can boast 
For we are all His workmanship

O LORD, You are my God
I will exalt You
I will praise Your Name,
For You have done wonderful things 
Your counsels of old are faithfulness and truth
Isaiah 25:1 NKJV
Southwark Park, London
Why do you look so sad? - 
Gratitude cheers the heart and a medicine for the soul. 
It is the little things that makes a bigger impact
Watch out for the things that directs you to the correct path

All glory belong to Jesus 
Whose love for us endures forever 
Whose love for us frees us from our sins

He is the Alpha and Omega 
The Beginning and The End 

He is the One who is, 
who always was and who is still to come

He is the one that opens and no one can shut
and the one who shuts and no one can open

Worthy is His name 
Worthy is the lamb that was slain 
Worthy is He that is risen

Glory to the Father, for giving us such love
Glory to the Father for sheltering us 
Glory to the Father for giving us everlasting life
Thank you for stopping by
God bless you in your journey

Secure yourself to the amazing Father
and the Lord of our Saviour Jesus Christ

Walk in His promises for Your life
Write them down

Say them out loud to yourself or anyone who will listen

Glorify His name especially in the bad weathers
His promises are trustworthy all the time

01

I will sing of mercy and justice
To You O Lord, I will sing praises
Psalm 101:1
09/05: Sunday Morning, Southwark, London. View from outside my flat:

Love that the sun still shines behind the cloud

Bless the Lord, O my soul
And all that is within me, bless His Holy Name.

You Lord, are more real than the thoughts in my head
How sweet are You, Lord
Your voice is more powerful 
than the sound of waves from a waterfall

How sweet is the sound of Your voice 
How powerful is the sound of Your voice

You are my strength, Your voice is all I can hear
I fall on my face and worship You
Nothing compares to You
I belong to You Father, I give it all to You

When I was in trouble, I call Your name 
And You were my strength

Bless the Lord, O my soul 
And forget not all His benefits
You have always been my strength 
When I could not move 
You helped me up

When I was in bed and could not get up 
You lifted me up and and gave me life

I belong to You Father
Lord, You are more than enough 
Let me see You only
For You are faithful

And all things started by You will be completed
Just as the sun rises and sets

Who makes the sun more brighter than anything
The Lord executes righteousness
And justice for all who are oppressed
He has made know His ways to all who look for Him

As the sun gets to it peak and 
becomes brighter each hour
 
So is Your glory, let me bow down
Let me stand like a statue
Let me be a lampstand 
Let the light shine brighter 

As I fall humbly to the floor in awe and wonder 
As You complete the work that You started 

Even the stars around are nothing compared to You
Let us worship You in Spirit and truth 
No one is like You
Compassionate, loving and the King forever

I belong to You only 
You are my heart desires
