Walk – a way to refocus

I am convinced that any suffering we endure is less than 
nothing compared to the magnitude of glory 
that is about to be unveiled within us.
Romans 8:18 TPT

The Shard, London
Www p5K - Day 7

It is a good thing the Bible 
Never says If you feel like it...
I might not feel like talking  
But God’s word always stands

God, You are 
The King of Kings 
and The Lord of Lords
Jesus, You are 
worthy to be praise

Monday, with a new found realisation 
What the enemy taught for evil 
God will use it for the good of those 
who love Him.

The weather is very cold today
Definitely not a day to go out for a walk
As I walked, it became a revelation 
To me why I spend every free time walking
It is therapy to me, everyone finds different ways 
To cope with this pandemic 
Mine was or is walking 

Since the lockdown
Not a single day have I stayed inside the house 
without stepping outside the front door
I have come to release that 
It takes me away from the house 

And work environment 
And the funeral environment
And the laughter with friends environment
And the Bible school environment
And the Church environment
The House has become every envirnoment

Walking has..
 
made me appreciate what I have
The people around me 
And most importantly God

It clears my head...

Lord I thank You for always encouraging me
To step outside the house 
And get fresh air
You have given me beauty for ashes
The oil of Joy for mourning
The garment of praise for the Spirit 
of heaveniness
I will greatly rejoice in You 
Lord

“Nugget of Information”

For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, 
that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures
we might have hope. Romans 15:4 ESV

London, Covent Garden, 2018
The nugget for the the day is REST

R - review the day both in the morning 
and evening by taking time to reflect 
on what God did and what He will do (expectancy)
If God said to write something down, 
then it must be good for us. 

Remember [with awe and gratitude] the wonderful things
which He has done, His amazing deeds and the judgments
uttered by His mouth [on His enemies, as in Egypt],
Psalms 105:5 AMP

Writing it down means we remember the goodness of 
God and we can also share it with others.
It also brings encouragement and hope  
I always find that my heart swells up when 
I read my old journal of prayers 
and thanks.
Or sometimes it brings back memories: 
oh yes I did ask for that wow God You listen. 

Imagine if Paul did not write how he met Jesus.
The Bible is our example of why we should write 
things down. 

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth,
but you shall meditate on it day and night, 
so that you may be careful to do according to 
all that is written in it. 
For then you will make your way prosperous, 
and then you will have good success. 
Joshua 1:8 ESV

Imagine if Moses had not written anything down 
anything and said I will remember. 
We read it and that tells us who He is.

I like tangible evidence. 

In my time of rest, I will write down what You have done for me. Lord Help me to always remember to write it down Not just for myself but to give You glory and praise. 

Exercise the mind: 
Meditating on the word day and night. 
The world says empty your mind, Jesus says if you empty your mind and not fill it up with the things of God then we call the trouble in not just one but seven. Matthew 12:43-45. Think about it.

God says meditate on my word day and night. 
Do not let it depart from you. 

Thank You Father that Your word is a Lamp to my feet and a light to my path, may I always recognise and look to You in Jesus name. Amen

Sleep:
The first thing we experience when God created us was to rest, when Adam was created on the six day, 
God rested on the seven day and 
that says a lot about it. 

I have always found it fascinating the way 
God has built our body to heal itself naturally. 
Which is why it is nice to journal the thoughts in our head before bed, thinking too much can lead to 
sleepless nights.

It is while we sleep that the body starts to work. If we can't get any sleep then it is always a good idea to get some help. It easier said than done, but seeking advice is better than a sleepless night.  

Time and Thanks:
Time waits for no one and it is something 
everyone has in common. 
Twenty-four hours, use it wisely and it will 
be your friend. 

He has made everything beautiful in its time. 
Also He has put eternity in their hearts, 
except that no one can find out the work 
that God does from beginning to end.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 NKJV

Take time to say thanks to the people around you.
It is a season to be grateful and no excuse is better than “It's Christmas, and I am in the Christmas mood and want to say thank you for this year." 

In everything give thanks to our God.

Thank You Father, for this year. It had its ups and
downs, I will say possibly more downs than ever. 
But what I have come to know is that You have been there
through it all. I have seen Your faithfulness in my life
and my loved loves. Some are not here anymore, and that
is Your will. God help me to remember that Your ways are
not my ways and Your thoughts are not mine. Forgive me
for trying to manipulate You, for doing what I want
forgetting that You know best and see everything. 
Let me be Humble to remember and give thanks for
everything, In Your Son’s name. Amen.

Season’s Greeting!

“Nugget of Information”

The number of our days make 70 years, 
or maybe 80 years if we are strong enough. 
Yet, even in the best years of our lives, 
we have trouble and pain. 
Our lives quickly pass, and we hurry towards death. 
Psalms 90:10 EASY

Choices – Free or busy:

We are now into the festive season and it feels like it was only yesterday, the year started. This year, is a year to remember of the things we have missed and what we have taken for granted. 

Getting an advent calendar or doing a tradition for the month of December, it is a joyful season to celebrate Jesus, and to celebrate life. I have a tradition that I started last year not sure if it counts as a tradition if I have only done it once but I am definitely doing it this year.

Writing three things that I am grateful for each day leading to the end of the year.  The catch is not to repeat anything. It did get me thinking each day from my coffee in the morning to braiding my hair.  At the end of the day I look back to see if any repeat and it was fun to put my thinking hats on because after twenty days I must confess I did start thinking. We have so many things to be thankful for. Every little thing matters to God.

Our choice is to reflect on the months past and make sure the chains that are anchored to Christ Jesus are secure and to process the season with our heart. Knowing that our strength is not our will power but God’s power through us.

To be in Christ means being truthful to ourselves and how we are feeling is so important at this time because when we bottle it all up, we are bound to explode at the wrong time “on a passby that gets the splash of water”.

Busyness is easy to do,  but making the free time is intentional and has to be done in advance. Looking at our calender or schedules and saying no for the things that matters to us will be a choice.

Spend time with those you love. One of these days you will say either, ‘I wish I had’, or ‘I’m glad I did.’ ~Zig Ziglar


Either way, I choose to spend time with them and look at the past as a stepping stone to the new adventure ahead.

Why I choose to be free?

To be free means lots of opportunities and knowing what matters to us. It also helps us to grow in faith. 

Freedom means 

Spending time with God because He is great:

The biggest bonus is getting time to spend with God. Quality time, even if it is five minutes.

For You are great, and do wondrous things; You alone are God. Psalms 86:10 NKJV

Life is short :

whereas you do not know what will  happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. James 4:14 NKJV

I get so busy and often forget that life is like a smoke and I don’t have any idea what my life will be like tomorrow. So why not enjoy the moment, the job will get someone else “if I was to never show up” in a heartbeat. Now COVID 19 has made some of us stay at home and not see anyone for over nine months, some have lost loved ones. Crazy year, who knew? 

Every moment counts. Thank You Jesus for each opportunity You give me to see my loved ones, please help me to always be grateful for those precious moments. Amen.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and remember ” It is because of freedom that Christ has set us free not partially but completely and wonderfully free.” This is good news.

Happy Thanksgiving To ALL

Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Everyone thank God, 
for he is good and easy to please. 
Your tender love for us, Lord, continues on forever. 
Psalms 106:1 TPT

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate. I hope the holiday season is joyful to all and whatever you do I send the blessings of God your way by the Holy Spirit your heart will be filled with joy as you celebrate it in a unique and different way. In Jesus Name, Amen.

He provides food for hungry men and animals! 
His tender love for us continues on forever! 
Psalms 136:25 TPT
There is a time for everything
A time to born and a time to die

In this season as I walk the 
usually busy street packed with people
The restaurants are all close 
The parks are less busy 
Except for the dog lovers 

I am thankful that I can walk the street 
I am also thankful for the quiet street 
The time to gaze at the beauty of Your creation

This season has taught me to 
look at the things around me 
It has made me more aware of what I am missing 
What I would Love to have in place

Lord thank You for giving me an opportunity to 
Love all the beauty of the world 
To commune with You 
To share my Love for You to others

Thank You for just been You 
Amazing
Wonderful 
Loving and Merciful

Thank you for stopping by, enjoy the Holidays!
