“Be the Friend you want”

Along South Bank walk in the summer

A real friend will tell you what you need to hear. An enemy will tell what you want to hear.

No one is perfect and we all have blind spot which is why it is so good to have people around that tells you as it is.

We might not like it at the time but it is better than someone who just hangs on to every word you say and sees you making the same mistakes and not giving you any correction. Be a friend that doesn’t wait until your friend is in the pit and then run to be the hero when it no good. We all want that friend sometimes it is good for us to be that friend.

Always go directly to the person, If you go to someone else who is not part of the problem or the solution then it is gossip not love. “If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone.

God has not given us a Spirit of criticism, so don’t get carried away and start telling people off or challenging them. Be wise and listen to Him always.

When the occasion rise go to the person and loving, gently and humbly go for their sake because you care. Not because you have an agenda. Be the friend that you wish you had.

Thanks so much for reading.

“I love my mental health in good shape, the enemy is not the boss of me, my mind is not the boss of me. I am the boss of me. God is the head and has given me the authority and power to be me in every situation.” Take this and read it, personalised and make it your own. Take God seriously and don’t take yourself so seriously but have fun. Life is short and we only have one.

“Nugget of Information”

So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him.” Luke 11:13 NLT

Gifts from God, through Jesus Christ – Looking after One’s well being is a gift that we sometimes ignore:

Our Father has given us so many gifts, some are still unopened, some opened not used and some used, or very overused. 

a friend baked this over the weekend and it was just lovely to eat and delicious, spending time with others is a good way to relax and have fun.

Don’t make change too complicated:

Saturday 10 + 10 = 20 very special world mental health day: Someone asked me a very simple question? What is the one thing that has worked for me this year?

This got me thinking on what has been implemented this year that has made an impact to my mental wellbeing. It can be so easy to rush things in life and forget the present moment. “Think about what you think”

Most of us spend so much time in front of the screen that we forget to take breaks in between. This led me to my answer:

Focus on the active minutes: 

In the lock down personally my focus was on active minutes.

What does that mean? Fitbit defines Active Minutes as: “Periods of moderate activity done for 10 minutes or more.”

Spending ten minutes walking around and getting 250 steps every hour. “Any activity is better than none and more is better still” 

You can perform multiple activities of at least 10 minutes throughout the day to increase your total of 30 minutes exercise in the day.

Below are the list of creative ways to get the 250 without seeing it as chore but a fun activity that you get to complete:

For 10 minutes, pick a book or the Bible, read it, or meditate on it while walking around. 

Another 10 minutes, you can also call a friend and talk while walking around. If this friend is a ten minutes conversation person.  

Putting on music and dancing around for 10 minutes to just relax your body and mind and just enjoy the body movement and listen to the sound of the music and words. 

Also you can spend 10 minutes praying, worship and praising, interceding. Great way to spend time with God and listen to him. 

Lastly just listen to your inner thoughts or be aware of the noise around or lack of. This is a great way to walk around with no sound. I find this very important as it has helped me concentrate and be attuned with my emotions. How i’m feeling and what thoughts are going through my head at the time. Just to recognize it and acknowledge. 

So if it’s anything to take away, what gifts have you never used or have overused. Time to look at all gifts and make use of the ones that are still wrapped up and ready to be opened. 

Remember all good gifts come from the Father. 

Thank You for reading and I Pray you have an amazing week and you get to open a gift from God that you have never used or used once and put to the side. 

To you, O God of my fathers,  I give thanks and praise, for you have given me wisdom and might, and have now made known to me what we asked of you, for you have made known to us the king’s matter.” Daniel 2:23 ESV

SKY – “Your limit is You”

Happy DAY!

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. Romans 1:20 NIV

The sky fascinates me, not just the sky but looking at the creation of the world and seeing the creativity of people always brings a smile to me. Whatever you do stop and look at your surrounding and appreciate the beauty that surrounds you and let that wonder take over you. Feel the difference, see the difference and let your imagination run wild.

The sky is your limit, the world is your taking. There is no limit to anyone’s ambitions, creativity, aspirations or the like. The limit is you, when we have doubts and fears it brings limitations to what we can acheive.

The Sky is our view everyday we step out, it is wide and vast this allows us to use our imagination and it can be as big and wide as you can see it. Today is a new day to step into your sky view.

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Psalms 19:1 NIV

The Shield

As we go through these tough times, be reminded that God is our Shield and Reward, through our Lord Jesus Christ. Hold on to it and be encouraged that it will end.

After this, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision: “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your very great reward. ”

Genesis 15:1 NIV
He is the Shield
The Shield that surrounds us 
Even when we are not holding on

The Shield is a consuming fire 
That burns everything in its path
That lights up every darkness 

The shield projects Love
And all we need is to accept it 
This Love cannot be contained

The Shield brings joy, peace as you hold on to it
You cannot understand it
Nor can you fathom it 

The Shield gives choices
A choice to hold on or let go
And He gives strength to all

When things get tough or hard
Be sure to put the Shield up 
The Shield bought us a Saviour

Trust The Shield 
Guard your heart
He is your only reward

When you experience disappointments He walks you through the dark valley and invites you into a life of Joy. Be blessed

Peace that transcends circumstances

Good Morning all, now today this verse means so much to me. This pic is taken this morning on a walk what a beautiful sight. Only to come home to no hot water so had a lovely cold shower and a noise in my house because the tap is broken. So today is a self talk day to Hannah to not let go of God’s hand and smash the tap. No matter what the circumstances we face, in the midst of trails and troubles is when peace is readily seen. Today I send the peace of mind from our Lord Jesus Christ to all and the courage to face everything. In Jesus Name. Amen 🙏🏾 Hope you all have a wonderful day. 😘
