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
'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
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
'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!'
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.
'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:
To enrich the diet through development of a diversity of flavours, aromas and textures in food substrates
To preserve substantial amounts of food through lattice acid, alcohol, acetic acid and alkaline fermentations
To enrich food substrates with protein, essential amino acids and vitamins
To eliminate anti nutrients
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
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.
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
Cucumbers are turned into pickles using lattice acid bacteria and brine with five to eight percent salt concentrated
'Your eyes will see the king in his beauty and view a land that stretches afar. '
Oh come let us sing
and make a joyful sound to the Lord
It has been cold this week
What a week? I am not so sure
Are we in spring or winter
For as I opened the blinds to let the sun in
To my surprise it was snowing
In April not rain but snow
So I had time to reflect
Look at the detail of Christ
Few words kept coming across my eyes
Why do you seek? He asked His parents
Man shall not live by bread alone
But by every word of God
The temptation of the world
Cannot be overcome alone
For it is in Christ that we are set free
For though I walk through the valley
Or thrown into the fire I am never alone
Launch out into the deep and let down
Your nets for a catch
So I walk into the deep
A deep end that requires LOVE
Not a feeling for it did pass
For when I had no feeling
I knew what love really was
Love is an action that is incredibly patient
Love does not reason in it heart
But believes the best in people
It goes out of it way to give without expecting a return
So I listen to the music
And I dance to it as it snows outside
And then I braved it outside
Why? I like to walk
With winter coats and hats on for the sun was out but cold
Even with the cold under the sunlight I feel the warmth
It made me smile and forget the troubles
As I cast all my cares and troubles to Him
And as I remember the season of resurrection
Who do you say I am?
The Christ of God
Then pick up your cross and follow me
No looking back
Do not be afraid to follow me
For I will show You who to fear
Fear God, who has the power to cast your
Soul into hell, Yes do fear Him!
In reverent fear
Therefore let Your words be few
Better not to vow than to vow and not pay
For the Lord is faithful
His grace abounds in each of us
He is slow to anger and abandoning in Love
Yes I did decide to buy a foam roller
Then I wonder why this late because they are incredible
Getting a massage, wow so I feel all the aches and pains
In a good way, see I get pleased very easily
Little things make my eyes smile
Oh come let us sing
Praise to the Lord!
“neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:39 NIV
The Story continues….as my imagination runs wild, we see in the eyes of Folrose, Nwe Amiya and Athan. Welcome to the next part, series of short stories!
How are we going to get away with this, running as fast as little legs could carry her. Nwe is been nothing but trouble ever since meeting her, all the adventures they have done together as Florose taught. She continued to run and since leaving home life has been full of adventure.
Remembering the day that she decided to live the manor and venture into the world of humans. In the woods, as she spoke to her dear father and mother. I am going into the human world, looking at the two and in the hopes to be stopped. But they both spoke together, that is great honey. You will love it and make sure you come back in five years. What, and why? Looking at both for some explanation as to why there was a time limit to my stay in the human, as this genuinely puzzled me.
Why would I come back if I like it?
I didn’t want to come back and I certainly was not about to let them know this. I have studied these humans and they seem nice, how wrong was I. Chased by a mad man and woman with dogs and looking for a way to escape.
It has been five years today as I recall the promise made to my parents to go back, never thought I would disobey a direct order under these circumstances. Now I do wish I was in the land of peace and looking at the beautiful forest.
The beautiful forest was hidden from the world and everyone was free, we could see how the humans were destroying the land. It is parallel to ours and we have the forest and large trees, our houses are built on the trees, the flowers and the water falls on every corner to help sustain the plants.
A storm of rage and panic pushed into my chest as we came to the end of the line. Why are you doing this? Mind racing, and why follow me? I have nothing to give. As they both stopped, Amiya looked at me in silent curiosity for a moment, I have my reasons, I’m sorry Athan that you must suffer in this. It was not the plan and not my purpose but something has to be done.
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.
Arise shine; For your light has come!And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you.Isaiah 60:1 NKJV
See the winter is past Flowers appear on the ground The season of singing has come
I just love seeing the growth of the flowers on the ground as The season of Springs starts It brings a smile to my face It is still cold yet the sun is out
The intimate sounds of the doves can be heard above the trees As I wake up, the voice calls out Arise my darling it is time to walk outside For it is the season to wake up
Your wisdom Father is above all The season of Spring is when most animals awake from hibernation If the animals know when to wake up and move into the world Then how much more with us
For we were created in Your image and likeness Lord Jesus I surrender to You Catch us the foxes, For You are the true Vine And the Father is the Vinedresser
In this season that the springs start The branches starts to bear fruit We surrender to You as You prune and we bear more fruit Cut off the dead branches that are of no use
In the secret place with You Let me see Your Face Let me hear Your voice Let me be silent Let me be attentive
What is man that You are mindful of him Or the son of man that You take care of Him Until the day breaks and shadows flee As I lay my head down I thank you for another day as You cover me with Your blanket as I rest in You
Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has comethe cooing of doves is heard in our land. The Fig-treeforms its early fruit;the blossoming vines spread their fragranceArise, come, my darling;my beautiful one, come with me. Song of Songs 2:12-13
Hello and welcome to month of MARCH
I pray that the Lord makes a way where there is no way, and this month You see Jesus in your travels. You sit with Him, listen and obey what He says to you. Amen.
I cannot believe it but I thank God
A year ago we had the virus that is not to be named
But we have a GOD that is to be named JESUS,
Let everyone that has breath Praise His name
For He has overcome death
He has sustained us
He will never leave us or forsake us
Now the enemy thought He can crumble us
BUT our God is bigger than anything we face.
Thank You Father
Thank You for everything
In Jesus Name, amen
Thank you for stopping by and yes before we look at what we get it is always good to give thanks to the giver that never hold back. The vault is already open, if this is the first time or not you journey with me. Thank you.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, Knowledge of the Holy ONE is understanding.
That is amazing: The fear of the LORD
In my travels, I have come to Love God in reverence. Not a fear of cowardice and terrible but a fear that is full of love and compassion because He first showed me what it means to have and receive HIS love. If something is wrong then I come to Him and when I am joyful I also come to Him. Not always but I am working on it with HIM.
As we enter into the vault and see the things that God wants us to see, let us
Watch and Pray:
The Bible, every time I open the Bible I get to see what God wants me to see. Yes all the time, but some days the cares of the world clouds my eyes. So I don’t see.
The entire Bible to me is fascinating, It is the one book that all study and find a nugget each time. A nugget to bless you and everyone around you.
No one knows the day or hour.
For God in His wisdom has given us mere mortals talents to use in His Kingdom. I love it when I hear the voices of people singing (not the voices in my head), for God says speak as if I am the one speaking.
I want to encourage you to look at the talents you have and master it. For the God we serve is not partial or has a favourite child. Of course not, for He is not man BUT GOD whose ways are not ours.
So in everything pray for yourself, pray for the body and always give thanks to the Father through Christ Jesus.
Using our gifts for the good of the kingdom, involves also looking at Jesus, If you sit with Him there is no way you will not see what He sees.
For when He is hungry we feed Him
When He is thirsty, we give Him water
When He is a stranger, we welcome Him
When we see Him naked, we cloth Him
When we see Him bruised and dying we take Him to the hospital and visited Him
When we see Him falsely accused and in prison, we came to say hello and bring a word of encouragement
Lastly we will always go over and above out of love not because it is good work to do it for all to see but just because we want to pour out our entire wages to see His kingdom advance.
Watch and pray the flesh will always want more self and to starve it we must see Jesus
The spirit is always willing, and the self must be last.
Love God, with all your heart, soul and mind. Love your neighbours as yourself.
Don’t forget to celebrate the little things, the big things. Whatever it is, celebrate with your loved ones.
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
