Peace Be Still

Keep Calm

Are you worried? Anxious? Finding it hard to trust God? Have a read through the following post ‘Keep Calm’. Really recommend it 🙂

” We all trust Him, but we must know that praying and worrying contradict one another. If you pray, don’t worry. But if you worry, don’t pray. You cannot say “God, You are able” and then say “God, I doubt you will do this for me”. Choose to trust Him.” – Tovares Grey

Keep Calm.

He is my crown!

crowned with forgiveness

I was a sinner destined to die

Given to the hands of the oppressor

Left alone to tear me apart

 

I tell you it wasn’t easy

With no one there to comfort

Running here and there

But all I found was an empty well

 

Loneliness was my favourite word

And tears my good old friend

I didn’t have the answers to my hurt

Though I searched everywhere

 

I didn’t know Him

I have only heard His name

But He called me in my youth

And told me “you are Mine”

 

Who is this Man who would want me?

What am I worth to Him that He would love me?

Does He know who I really am or what I’m looking for?

 

But He had this radiant light

That was brighter than the sun

Irresistible were His words

And kept leaping in my heart

 

I didn’t understand what it was

But I desired what He had

Perhaps it’s the thing I was searching all around

Something pure something of beauty

Something to hope for and to be free

 

I was the youngest amongst many

But God didn’t care He still wants me

I stood to respond to the call that was made

And this was the day that I got saved

Oh the joy that filled my heart

Oh the burdens that became light

He has washed me and cleansed me white

By His blood I am His and He is mine

 

Now I can walk this path

With Him by my side

Oh what a happy day

I am the daughter of the Light!

HALLELUJAH

 

 

 

DO YOU TRUST YOUR LIFE DRIVER?

Why is it so hard to let God be God? Why do we try to take His place?

Why do we not trust Him with our lives, even though He’s shown Himself faithful again and again?

Why do we kind of push Him off the driving seat and try to take control of the steering wheel of our lives when we know well enough that we are not good enough to do anything about it?

It’s amazing how we entrust ourselves to public transport drivers and rest fully assured that they know what they are doing. We don’t sit on the front and try to watch everything they do in order to check every detail of their move and see if they are doing it right, we just sit on the back relax and enjoy the view through the windows. Even the bumpy roads don’t scare us off! We trust them, and inside we have this confidence that “they know what they are doing, and these bumpy roads are nothing to them.” But with God I don’t always see that in my life. I try to take charge of it all, figure out what’s the best way to solve this? But this usually doesn’t help me, as His word says, “Be still and know that I am God” Psalm.46:10, I better just be still and fully believe that He is God and He knows how to drive my life through this bumpy road of life.

Its best for me if I come before Him, that I place my burden under His cross and leave it there. Because often I am tempted to pick it back up again and place it on my shoulder. E.g. I pray about something and then the next minute I am getting so worried about it again. But why do I find it hard to trust God even after I have seen all the good things He has done for me?

 Lack of faith! 😦 May God help me!

My Defender!

  1. YES!!!

    Lord my heart is failing me

And all my flesh is wasting away

As I look to the threats of the oppressor

And gaze upon their schemes of murder

 They plan evil day and night

They seek to find faults in my life

They stretch their ropes wide to trip me

And chains of guilt to hold me back

 God would You not intervene

Would You not heal?

Are You not the defender of the weak

And Father of the meek?

Doesn’t Your word say,

You’re “the King of glory in their midst

And a wall of fire all around”?

 Hear Oh God

Hear the cry of my heart

Never let go, lest I die of my fright

You are my ONLY hope, You are my might

A just God, who is leading my fight

 Heal me oh God

Heal me by Your strips

That You took for me and many

On Calvary’s cross

Bind my aching heart and troubled soul

Let Your peace that surpasses all understanding

Guard my heart and soul

Until You come and we hear victory’s shout

Let our hearts stay strong in You our good God! 

 

Rainbow!

God keeps His promises :)

God keeps His promises 🙂

 

Recently I have been feeling quite tired and weak, a very wrong time to be like this in my view as exams approach. But you know what, God is faithful and what ever we see as something wrong He turns it for our good. Today I was feeling weak and inadequate to deal with the exams, so I just decided to get up from my chair, lift my hands towards heaven and pray. 

As I faced towards the window and lifted my hands  and said, “Father,…” I looked and there was a rainbow in the sky! It didn’t rain today, it was just cloudy/ sunny. Good old British weather. Then immediately a verse came to me… 

“Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet My unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor My covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you.” – Isaiah.54:10

Waw! I was just stood there, amazed praising God. He is faithful and He keeps His covenant. “He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” – Philippians.1:6

GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME!!! 

My Rock & My Peace

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” – Romans.8:28

When things seemed to cripple and all hope was gone

When I felt weak & wondered if God actually heard me at all

Then He showed up in an amazing way

Way that I didn’t anticipate and brightened my day

How many times have I failed Him?

How many times have I lost faith?

Yet HE stayed by my side even in the darkness

He changed my situation with a flick of His fingers

Who can understand His ways?

Who can comprehend how He works?

His ways are higher than ours

And His thoughts deeper than our thoughts

To give us a future and a hope

Even though I cannot see what’s ahead I will trust Him

Because He has proved Himself faithful to those who wait for Him

His love will guide me and lead me in the right path

Though heaven and earth move His promises will last!

Salt!

This morning while I was waking up, this picture came in my head… Salt sprinkled on food. Its amazing how just a tiny bit of salt makes such a difference to a massive cooked meal. The food in itself may taste awful or just tasteless on its own, but when we add salt, it brings out the real flavor of the food. One can argue that its the salt that’s nice and another may say well its the food that’s nice, but actually they both work in complementary. See they both don’t taste that good on their own, but when you combine them, then you get something really nice!

In the same way, in the sea of problems in life, remembering and meditating on God’s goodness brings out the real taste of life to us. Problems on their own are not great; and when all is going so well, our mind calls for a challenge. Don’t resent the problems of life, just simply sprinkle it with the salt of meditating on God’s goodness and it won’t knock you down. I remember one preacher talking about the flower Rose. “How it has beautiful petals and thorny stem, yet we don’t hate it because of the thorns, but still adore it as the queen of all flowers!” 

Also a friend of mine shared the story below on her Facebook status recently and it really spoke to me…

Me: God, can I ask You a question?
God: Sure
Me: Promise You won’t get mad
God: I promise
Me: Why did You let so much stuff happen to me today?
God: What do u mean?
Me: Well, I woke up late
God: Yes
Me: My car took forever to start
God: Okay
Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait
God: Huummm
Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call
God: All rightMe: And on top of it all off, when I got home ~I just want to soak my feet in my new foot massager & relax. BUT it wouldn’t work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did You do that?
God: Let me see, the death angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one
of My Angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through thatMe (humbled): OH

GOD: I didn’t let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.

Me: (ashamed)

God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick & I didn’t want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn’t afford to miss work.

Me (embarrassed):Okay

God: Your phone went dead bcuz the person that was calling was going to give false witness about what you said on that call, I didn’t even let you talk to them so you would be covered.

Me (softly): I see God

God: Oh and that foot massager, it had a shortage that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn’t think you wanted to be in the dark.

Me: I’m Sorry God

God: Don’t be sorry, just learn to Trust Me…. in All things , the Good & the bad.

Me: I will trust You.

God: And don’t doubt that My plan for your day is Always Better than your plan.

Me: I won’t God. And let me just tell you God, Thank You for Everything today.

God: You’re welcome child. It was just another day being your God and I Love looking after My Children…

What a great God we have! So today don’t believe in bitterness of your problems but bring the flavor out of them by sprinkling goodness in to them. The Bible says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” ~Romans.8:28~
Have a blessed day! 🙂

Faithful God!

Look back and thank God!

Often, present situations

Blind me of God’s goodness

Its amazing how I quickly forget

And in the deep seas of my problems I drown

 

Often I shut myself of the needy

Trying to pretend I didn’t see

Their hurt and pain

That ring over me

 

Let me not wonder why?

Let me ask how should I

Face this, with God by my side

For He never ever leaves the meek

He sees the whole of eternity

In one blink!

There wasn’t a day

That I have passed by

On my own by my might

He was there,

Even when I couldn’t see

His Hands guiding and protecting me

 

So my soul trust Him

With all that you have

Believing He is able and He can

Let no other voices tell you otherwise! 

This song says it really well, that God is ALWAYS FAITHFUL! So let us trust Him with all our hearts, He knows what He is doing, we don’t! We see the present, but He sees the whole of eternity in one blink!
