'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
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 Amen

Be bless and know that the Lord loves you Lots of Love - Hannah ©Hannah M Vandi. 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
