"For no word from God will ever fail.” 

Luke 1:37 NIV


Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour: Welcome all 🙂

Apologies, It is a late one today. Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
Ecological Park, Bermondsey, Southwark. London.

First Monday in May. 

To everything there is a season. A time for every purpose under the Heavens.

The Vault: Today I want to be outside the vault, I love stories. To hear stories and absorb them requires listening:

Yesterday I spent the whole day outside my house. Walking with a friend and ending in the Ecology Park: This park always amazes me, and if you are ever in bermondsey walk in this park and see the greens even for a city it looks amazing.

Not sure about you, this year seems to be going fast. I have this tradition in me that I give thanks for the month ahead because I am walking by faith and every obstacle that may come my way I give to the Lord. Cast all my cares and burdens to Him 

This is one of my favourite verses and there is something about reading it with a new set of eyes and seeing it in a different light. 

"Matthew 6:25-34- DO NOT WORRY"

Familiarity is a curse in my opinion when it comes to scriptures, hear me out. 
The reasons is 
We lose the meaning behind the message. 
We glance over words 

It does not touch the heart anymore
It stops in the mind 

The doors are shut 
It bounces like a ball in our hand as we play with it mindless

The Bible
The Words spoken 
Are God words
So take it seriously 

Do we listen to the words? 

So reflecting on the words in Luke 1:26-38 and looking at the reaction of Mary (Mother of Jesus) as she listens to what the angel says, she ponders it in her heart and in response to her listening skills comes questions. Questions comes answers

Listen equals reflection and then the right questions to get the right answers.

One of the reasons why  we don’t listen well is that we tend not to apply all of our brain power and heart to the exercise. Listening is an exercise and must be done daily to optimise its skills, or see the growth of it.

Most of the time, half or three-quarters of our brain could very well be doing something else while we are reading or listening to someone speak.

In the content of listening to the bible: there will be other things going on in the same space. 

Maybe there are people walking about
Maybe your phone lights up, telling you that you have received a text
Maybe there’s music in the room 
Maybe there’s television in the background 

Meanwhile you thinking of the to-do list 
The next meeting 
What am I going to say to my friend or family when I see them in the next hour
What will I have for breakfast or lunch or dinner

Do everything you can to tune all of this out
And be completely present 

Studying the word in the right conditions will likely improve your focus. 
And both in preparation for the study

When studying in a group:
I find out that note taking is best when listening

Notes allow you to organise and process information in a way that makes it most likely that you can us this information afterward.

But don’t fall into the temptation of concentrating on the note taking that you forget listening to the words. But make sure you are really listening. Guess what you are not a secretary, you not around as someone who is receiving information for later use. Therefore it is very important to hear what others are saying:

Take notes of what is emphasised 
Make sure you understand what the points the speaker is making and if 
opportunity arises ask questions.

After notes taking, ensure you review the notes immediately 
It helps you retain the information much more effectively than if you don't read the notes for days
As an extra bonus 
You will be able to supplement your notes with anything you might have missed while taking the notes 
because the information will still be fresh in your mind.

Remember God loves you and nothing we do surprises Him. He requires our attention and obedience and that is listening. Not a massive lists of things to do but “Let it be to me according to Your word”

My soul will magnify the Lord
And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Saviour 
I will rejoice in Your Salvation 

No one is Holy like the Lord
For there is none like You
Nor is there any rock like our God

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. '

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

Happy Friday and thank you for stopping by.
"We cannot change what happens around us but we can change our responses." 
The flesh is weak, don't depend on it.

'Think of it this way: 
If a man owns a hundred sheep and one lamb wanders away and is lost, 
won’t he leave the ninety-nine grazing the hillside and thoroughly search for the one lost lamb? '

Matthew 18:12 TPT
Well hello and welcome to the madness of the world. 
The earth was without form and void and darkness was on the face of the deep
The Spirit of God walks and spoke light into beings
The light shines in the darkness and 
The darkness did not comprehend it
The light penetrates into hearts and 
The word became flesh and tabernacled in our hearts 

How wonderful is our God! 


Hope you had a great weekend and also had a day of rest.
I actually napped, very surprised because my watched recorded it 
Could you believe it as I rested my head on the sofa after church
I mean after stuffing my face with crisps the weight of it 
Was so heavy that my mind could not lay awake 
My stomach could not stand in the weight 
So I lie down and the food digested 
My eyes close and the sweet dreams come
It is in Him that we have breath
Welcome to my "Treasure Trove of Information"
Last Monday in April wow 

So I give thanks to the Almighty and Saviour
We can never stop saying thank YOU

The voice of one crying in the wilderness 
Make straight the way of the Lord 
John 1:23b

So in my thanks to the Lord, 
I choose some words that stirs me up
Get me out of my chair 
Make me smile 
Make me dance 
Make me cry 
Nothing like the words of the Lord to bring out all the emotions in me

My heart yearns for the Lord so this is a worship of thanks 
And a reflection of His words 
Walking in the cool of the day with the Lord 
I love to imagine that in the garden

What do you seek?... think about it
Come and see.. The world of madness come and see
Follow me .. no more words needed, no reason needed
Woman, believe Me...for now we worship in Spirit and in truth 

Who is like You Lord, for it is in You 
We have life 
We have the living water
We have the bread of life 

I don’t need to see signs and wonders 
You do make me laugh and smile and provoke my senses 
For sometimes the science in me wonders the words You speak 
So I sit and listen 
Your words raises my eyebrow in wonder and awe 
For I wanted to hear more, what does this mean?
“I am the bread of life”
Okay, what does it mean?

You picked my curiosity for I wanted to eat this bread and have a life with You
You even show me the things that I hide to myself 
You love me in spite of all I have done

Yes the Lord is good
And He has invited us to sit and have breakfast
So I sit and let the words overflow 
As You spoke the words to Simon, son of Jonah
“Do you Love Me more than these?”
Now my first response is “Yes, You know I love You”

The words penetrate in my heart 
“More than these”
For it is a life of growth in Love 
Committed to the journey of life 
Because work, family will come 
Are you committed?
Love grows as the plant grows when watered
Lord, how amazing to reflect 
“Feed my lambs”
For it starts as a lamb 
Greater is He that is in me than he that is the world
In Your power and might 
The lamb is fed and cared for 
The lamb is now a sheep
We tend the sheep
Then we fed the sheep

Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You
Let such as Love Your Salvation say continually 
The Lord be magnified 
But I am poor and needy
Yet the Lord thinks of me
You are my help and deliverer
For You have sent someone to care for me
To feed me and give me shelter
Blessed is he who considers the poor
The Lord will deliver Him in time of trouble

As the wisdom of our Lord is apparent 
I have come to learned what a sheep is

Sheep become stressed when isolated; this stress is reduced if they are provided with a mirror, indicating that the sight of other sheep reduces stress. ~ according to Wikipedia

And so we thank You for community 
For You will always leave the ninety-ninety to find the one
Because we are together
The Lord of hosts is with us 
The God of Jacob is our refuge

Let everyone that has breath Praise the Lord

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

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

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
