He likes me!

Teach me, Lord , the way of your decrees, that I may follow it to the end.
Psalms 119:33 NIV

No matter what we are going through, God not only LOVES us but He likes us individually and corporately.  Think about it, not only LOVE but LIKES you as you are. Especially our personality which is why we are all different like the colours of the rainbow. Inspired by The Book of Psalms and John.

The rainbow is a symbol of God’s refelection on us to bring His beauty into the world. The flower is just a gift of Love

O Lord God, You are my God
Early will I seek You
My soul thirst for You
My flesh longs for You

Because of Your Loving Kindness 
I have a life worth living
My lips will Praise You
My heart choose to walk with You 

In the morning when I get up 
My mind is already seeking 
to get attention in every direction
From all the wrong places

And they do not satisfy my hunger and thirst
It is only when I get to Your Word that 
I find myself relax, convicted and corrected
Why do I always choose You last?

I hunger and thirst daily for the food around me
But they do not satisfy me
You say fast, and pray and I say tomorrow
Only to find out that fasting is beneficial for the body

Why do I always choose You last
Why do I not listen and obey You
When all the things You say are to benefit me
To bring You glory and honour

I do long walks daily to get all 
The fear and anxiety out of my head
And You say to me come to me 
All who are weary and heavy laden 

And I will give you Rest
You give me the rest I never found in the world
Now when I do my long walks it is to see 
The beauty of Your Creation

That Power only belongs to You God
Also to You Lord belongs Mercy
When I let my hair out
When I smile in the mirror 

When I truly look at myself inwardly
It is because I know You truly like me
My personality with the ups and downs of life
You Father are always smiling down at me

You LIKE me!
Why? Because You say so and I will always trust You

Thanks for reading, it is for you to personalise it and know that GOD actually LIKES YOU. We don’t need proof because..

The Word becomes Flesh and dwelt among us
In Him was life and the life was the light of men
And that light shines in the darkness
And that darkness did not comprehend it

Jesus I Love you!
Yahweh I Love you!
Thank You for choosing me.
Have a wonderful day, knowing that God likes you. 
Hannah-Michaela Vandi - "We cannot control what happens around us but we can control our responses with love"

Heal our hearts!

Good Morning all and today I bring you sunflower a symbol of happiness and optimism.

The weather is getting dark so we all need the Love from our Father and please pass it on to someone that you think will need it.

It is just so amazing at how God’s mercy triumphs judgment!

“Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.” ‭‭2 Chronicles‬ ‭7:14‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Because Your loving kindness is better than life

I humble myself to You

Fall on my face and commit my all to You

“Nugget of Information”

God wants us to enjoy our everyday life

After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord. John 20:20 NIV

2020 has been a year for everyone and it has not finished yet, the disciples saw Lord Jesus in John 20:20 and guess what we are experiencing the power of knowing who our God the Father and Almighty is this year 2020!

coffee shop in Kobenhavan V, Copenhagen a perfect place to relax.

Today’s nugget is the art of forming a habit to suit our lifestyle. 

One of the most overlooked disciplines in our lives is the discipline of choice. I love choices, which you find in most of my writing. 

Today choices are resting and stretching, two of the most overlooked and very vital in our everyday life. 

It is really odd how these two choices are often overlooked and also very important areas of our lives that we overlook until a problem arises.

The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it.

Sydney Harris

Why is stretching important?

Before I get to why? “Stretching can be dangerous when performed incorrectly. “  Stretching is also automatic, look at a baby when you lift them up they stretch. Instinct that we do. It is not only for athletic but for everyone!

One of the things that I have personally learned and in the study of my nutrition is that stretching is good for the muscles. 

Stretching keeps the muscles flexible, strong, and healthy, and we need that flexibility to maintain a range of motion in the joints. Without it, the muscles shorten and become tight. Then, when you call on the muscles for activity, they are weak and unable to extend all the way. That puts you at risk for joint pain, strains, and muscle damage. Most of us sit all day and if your mobility is less and you spend more time sitting or standing all day, it is always good to stretch the muscles that you are using all day and also the ones you are not using to be ready when you need it.

Stretching the muscles that are not used to always be ready when needed is like when God says meditate on His word daily, so when we need it at the right time it is readily available to use.

Actions: Set a time after work or in the morning to stretch, start with a minute and move up as you go. It also helps you burn a small amount of calorie if you need a reason to stretch, but every little helps. So many videos regarding stretching that you can find to suit your lifestyle and we don’t have any reason to not do it

Stretching the muscle is a fascinating subject, the whole human body is fascinating. The thing that I have learned is that it is usually the neighbouring muscle that is causing the problem. For example if your knee hurts, it is sometimes the calf or even the hip that is causing the knee problem not always the case but most times. Which is why it is good to stretch them out

I found it fascinated to know that the whole body is connected and when one part is hurting the other part is also hurting. 

Next is resting: 

Resting is my favourite and something I need to practice more of, because after a day of rest  you feel so refreshed and energised. Resting is not just sleeping physically but also mentally. 

When I’m trying to believe, I haven’t entered God’s rest. But when I do believe, I have complete rest in Him. Living by faith is not a struggle—it’s rest. And you can enter into God’s rest in every area of your life. – Joyce Meyers

One of the beauty of rest, I can be working and still be at rest in the mind. Rest is essential for us, sleep is very much needed as without it we become a zombie, very short tempered and ready to eat someone alive. 

Take away: 

Change your lifestyle to suit you:

Trust in the Lord our God to give us rest that no one can understand

Stretch your muscle daily so they are always ready when needed. The same goes with mediating His word daily so when needed we are ready for it.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Matthew 11:28-30 NIV
Have a wonderful day.
Hannah-Michaela "we cannot change what happens around us but we can change our responses."

Relax

To end the theme of Mental awareness, today and any day. It is amazing to just glorify the Lord our God if not the stones will, that will not be good.

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
Psalms 19:1 - 4 NIV

The harder we work at something, the more rewarding it is. Taking the time to go for walks makes me feel better. Clears my head and I am away from the house. Whatever makes you feel good, do it. Find the time to relax.

Dont forget that your mind is yours and always do something that will make you happy and the people around you happy. No one likes to be sad all the time, there’s a time and a season  for everything. 

One tip as you enter your weekend, mild dehydration can affect the mood and focus so make sure you are hydrated this weekend. Nothing like a bad mood. We all get it and we can choose to stay in it or we can purposely choose a path that is real, positive or negative. The path is yours to choose. This weekend, I chose real Hannah (your name), smiling if I am happy and if I am sad I will be sad and I am ready for whatever is in front of me. I know the Lord God is right by me walking every step with me. In Jesus Name, Amen. 

“You don’t have to be positive all the time. It’s perfectly okay to feel sad, angry, annoyed, frustrated, scared and anxious. Having feelings doesn’t make you a negative person. It makes you human.” — Lori Deschene

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
1 John 4:18 NIV

Hannah-Michaela Vandi – We cannot control what happens around us but we can control our responses. Have a wonderful weekend and remember to have fun life is short and we only have one.

Freedom

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1 NIV

Walking along the South Bank, London. Love the different shades of colour

Freedom is something that is given to us by God through Christ Jesus, no ONE has any right to take that away from anyone. It also comes with a cost, thousands of men and women have sacrificed their lives to guarantee freedom. With the theme of Healthy Mindset, here is a Psalm on been free

God is a God that gives freedom
He gave us breathe so we can be free
We only have one rule

We broke the rule and listen to the wrong voice
That voice says freedom is 
Throwing off the restraint and doing your own thing

That freedom leads to bondage and chains
True freedom comes from obeying God
He sent His son to show us what it means to be free

Lord Jesus thank You for giving us the Freedom
To know who we are
Thank You for partnering  with us

Knowing that when when we walk in darkness
You bring light and 
Cast the shadow behind us

In the midst of all the pandemic 
We will Praise and Worship You
For You bring healing to our minds

Thank You for choosing us 
In You we have our Freedom
Freedom to know we are a child of God

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 NIV

Thank You for reading. Have a wonderful day.
