'No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, 
but rather tries to please his commanding officer. 
Similarly, anyone who competes as an athlete does not receive 
the victor’s crown except by competing according to the rules. 
The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops. 
Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this. '

2 Timothy 2:4-7

Always reflect on the Word of the LORD, for indeed He gives insight when you least expect it.

Welcome and hope you had a blessed weekend.  It is so good to see you 🙂

I thank God whom I serve
I am always learning something new about God 
I am also learning about people around me
Above all I am also learning about myself
It is blessing to be blessed and to also bless others 

Take the day as it comes, because everyday has its own troubles and His mercy is NEW each day.

Each day, with the Father, 
we are equipped and inspired to face that day. 
In His loving mercy, 
I am corrected 
In His Grace,
I am convicted and directed in the right path

Nothing I do or say is bigger than our Jesus
God with us and He calls us 
Even when I think I am hiding 
When I start to despair 
Or too hard on myself 
He squeezes my hand and reminds me 
That He is GOD and I am His servant 
Yet He calls me His friend

“Friend, I AM doing you no wrong. Did you not agree with me for a denarius? Take what is yours and go your way. I wish to give to this last man the same as to you. (Matthew 20:13b-14)

I do love this parable of the Workers in the Vineyard.

It always encourages me that God is not partial 
His ways are not our ways
And it is not lawful for Him to do as He wishes

He loves all His children 
And each are given a gift
And at the end of the race we look forward to just one thing 
Jesus the Bride 
and on that day His welcome  - “Well done my good and faithful servant” 

As Paul will say I am in chains for the gospel and it is Christ that I preach and I will boast in Him alone.

It is encouraging to know that a few seconds christain and one with Christ their your whole life. The Father always welcome with open arms. So enter His presence every day and receive His Joy. Hold fast to the Word of God. Standing firm on the ROCK that never shakes

On Sunday, 

I was again blessed with the Word of God. “The Good(ish) Kings series we looking at (2 Chronicles 26:1-23 & 2 Chroniches 27:1-9)

Thinking you know better than everyone
Is foolish 
Folly I will say 
It is not how you started
But how you finish matters so much.

The pleasures of the world is vanity
What does it accomplish ?
I have search around 
On how to gratify my flesh 
With wine, my eyes guiding my heart with wisdom
I made my own world great
I go into the gym to look great 
I work so I can gratify the flesh 
Yes I only look great 
And all this indeed is nothing 
For like the wind blows and we only hear the sound 
One can never grasp it or know it direction 
So the labour of the world
For it is grasping of the wind

All things must come and bow before the Lord our God 

Yes, come with me to the vault. At times, things get lost in the box of magic we carry around. As I listen to a sermon, God highlights different things in my box that had gone to the bottom, hidden!

Welcome to my Treasure Trove of Information. It is no different to any other day. Both Saturday and Sunday I Listen to different pastors. The Lord’s prayer was one of the magic pencil that highlights the things that need to come out of the box

It is amazing how the Word of God can fix a problem, it not only highlights but, it does it to heal and not to shame us. 

Come let have a look at forgiveness. Yes Forgiveness – the poison that we drink ourselves:

So I searched and I loved what Mayoclinic says about it.

Forgiveness means different things to different people. Generally, however, it involves a decision to let go of resentment and thoughts of revenge.

The act that hurt or offended you might always be with you, but forgiveness can lessen its grip on you and help free you from the control of the person who harmed you. Forgiveness can even lead to feelings of understanding, empathy and compassion for the one who hurt you.

Forgiveness doesn’t mean forgetting or excusing the harm done to you or making up with the person who caused the harm. Forgiveness brings a kind of peace that helps you go on with life.

And I sit and reflect, and think about what the Bible says about it. My go to: 

The Lord’s Prayer came to mind And it is so true Lord forgive me as I forgive others 

Without forgiveness it does leads to temptation 
The door to unforgiveness opens the door for the enemy to enter 
When he enters and see the house clean 
Goes out and takes seven other spirit into the house
Which can be anything, hatred, jealousies, 
outburst of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, hearsies, 
envy, murders, drunkness 
As God highlighted Galatians five the fruits of the flesh 
The curses from the enemy 
Take your pick 

But unforgiveness is a poison that slowly kills from the inside out

The enemy is always near looking for someone to devour.

Sin lies at the door
And its desire is for you
But you should rule over it 

For the Lord our God has blessed us abundantly 
From the beginning was the Word
And the Word was with God
And the Word was God
And that Word became flesh
And the Word turns darkness into light

And the Word shines so brightly 
The flesh cannot comprehend it 
For greater is He that is in me 
than he that is in the world

For He that is in me brings new cloths to put on 
the full armour of God
And also giving me the gifts of the Spirit

Lord lead me not into temptation 
But deliver me from the evil one
In the Name of Jesus

Oh dear, look around. It is time for me to say goodbye but... hope to see you again.

Thank you again for stopping by it means a lot to me

Pray you have a wonderful week 🙂

May your week be full of The Joy of the Lord
I praise God for your life
May He teach you
His way as you walk in His foot path
In the Name of Jesus

We cannot control what happens around us, 
but we can control our responses.
Be bless and know that the Lord loves you
Lots of Love - Hannah

And I also pray that this verse refreshes you this week: 
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
