'“Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher.
“Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless.” 'Ecclesiastes 1:2 NIV
What a statement?
Be angry but do not sin
For sin leads to death
This has never sounded so true
in my heart until this week
Can I tell I had a fab weekend
I don’t do camping,
so a shock to me when
I actually enjoyed it,
guess what it was just one night
Seeing what God has made
Hearing the birds at night as they sing
Walking in the woods and playing games
Was nothing more than a miracle from God
To be a child and enjoy life
is far beyond my imagination
Glory to the Father
He has made it possible
He has been my Rock
And England lost,
disappointed but it only a game
It is amazing we got to the final
What a great job they did
I am thankful for those young boys
They all did an amazing job
So when Monday came,
I see all the racist comments
I must say the heat started to go up
The water on the fire wood
was starting boil over
I could see it splashing into the fire
It was spiraling and I had to take
Some woods out to cool the heat
and let the water simmer
Oh how much angrier can anyone get
For I look to my Lord
I call on His Name,
how much longer can this go on for
Worst things happen around the world
I do not need this,
For so long we have been oppressed
For so long we have been mocked
For so long, my hair is been ridiculed
It was not professional enough
I should straighten it out
O’Lord my God, You have made me
Given me this amazing and beautiful hair and
How can they be so cruel
The memories start to flow out as I hear the chanting
The names that can only come from the enemy
Who is here to steal, kill and destroy
Yes, I forget to turn the heat down
Lord I am grateful that I know
You created me in Your image
You have created and know me before I was born
You gave me Afro hair and I will not change it for anything
You gave me the colour of my skin
I am dark but lovely
Do not look upon me because I am dark
For the Lord has created me this way
To withstand the sun,
To enjoy His creation
To be who I am and that my dear brothers and sisters
Is to worship Him only
I have come into the garden
I have come to plant
I have come to dance
I have come to be merry
For the Lord has given me the joy of salvation
For the Lord has turn my heart of stone to flesh
For the Lord has shielded me from my oppressor
For who am I
I can be angry but the Grace allows me to not sin
I walk and see Reuben angry and sinned against God
He slept with his father’s concubine
Or Simeon and Levi, they had every right to be angry
But they sin against God, killing everyone
For my God says,
I will fight Your battle
Why should I not trust him?
Yes, I will be angry at the way life comes out
Life is in the hands of God
The road is narrow and I will come in contact with
Obstacles but I have my Lord at my right hand
Who says, I will never leave you nor forsake you
To everything there is a season
A time to mourn
A time to dance
A time to keep silence
A time to speak
A time of war
And a time for peace
I know that whatever the Lord does
It shall be forever
Nothing can be added or taken away
So I will not fear man but God
For what God says He does
And God requires an account of what is past
How I love the Lord
For He heals the mind
The most powerful thing I have learned is
To be silent and still in His presence
For the Lord sees, and knows all
Be angry, but do not sin
Let God fight your battle
'Life’s a corkscrew that can’t be straightened,
A minus that won’t add up.'Ecclesiastes 1:15 MSG
Life in the Unknown world continues… Welcome to the world of walking into unknown places and life is no different. Yet we seem to be surprised at what lies ahead.
What is happening now has happened before.
Nothing is new under the sun.
The story continues…
A soft mattress meant a bed, a bed means sleep… one can dream for this was the only truth that she has come to appreciate. Cassa opened her eyes and groaned, remembering where she was.
The delicious meal last night, the agreement with the stranger and now the betrayal. She was instantly awake, her mind going straight ahead to what she needs to do. What will happen soon?
Who was she to trust.. A strange man who seems to not make promises or Athan who will always have something to work on.
If she obeys the stranger —– then would she finally have the freedom —- could she achieve it alone without these two.
“Freedom was in the hands like a smoke and letting go seems easy, holding onto it is impossible.”
She moved with ease out of the room and walked right into him. What was he doing here? And who are you? So many questions, little time for answers..
As she walked in the dark, a path she was very much accustomed to. It was a sanctuary of peace as she walked in the dark for her eyes had become customary to the darkness.
I wonder how he reports back to Athan, no surprise I have a bodyguard to watch my every move. How foolish to think it will be an easy task? This will require some deception and thoughts. Both she was now good at, well one must not boost at the achievement of deception. For deception is trickery and can deceive the decepter.
Smiling, as he stumbled knocking everything in his path. That will give me a head start, picking up the pace. Only to come against two more outside the cave.
He is definitely becoming paranoid in his old age and too cautious.
She nodded and watched as they opened the makeshift door. Stepping into the room as the door closed behind her. She moved into the room, on the table was the instruction laid out. Though it was quiet and dark with light coming from the far end, something was not right.
Holding the instruction, she moved closer to the stove as the heat was burning high. A small thump that might be missed drew her attention back to the room.
Athan moved to the center and filled the room… What is he doing here this morning? Maybe he knows…. One has to stop speculating and thinking ahead but listen first.
This is a journal of imaginative mind, fiction and also not much editing letting the words flow. Come back next week to see what happens. For as humans we need to be creative, use imagination and be the best version of ourself. Just like our Father wants us to be.
Who knows the mind of a human, only God!
I do love the Lord and I love that you took the time to read my blog. Bless you.
'Come together, listen sons of Jacob, listen to Israel your father.'
Genesis 49:2 MSG
And what more shall I say?
Our God is an awesome God
The Lord is my guide in life
For the plans I make it is only
His stamp that can take me to the next level
What a mighty God we serve
For we are sons of our fathers
For we are daughters of our mothers
But we have One Father to listen to
Blessed be the Lord God
Who has made the Heaven and earth
Because of His everlasting love for us
He has given us a King
A King who rules the whole earth
A King who has built a temple
A temple that dwells within us
A temple that is a new creation
Beyond the imagination of the human mind
For we are now holy, and blameless
Because He chose us
And we have come to know the mysteries
The will of His word that abides forever
For we are but a grass
And flowers that stands out
The grass that withers
And the flowers that will die
But Your reign will forever remain
What more can I say
Than our God is an awesome God
