For in You I will find rest [MF]

20140330-224956.jpg

With great pleasure and honour to share another great poem that is written by my creative friend, Melinda Fletcher. It has touched my heart and many others. If you are in the dark and challenging season in life, you just breathe and this shall pass. When time to fight, you fight. Time to stand, you stand. Time to sit, you sit. Time to rest, you rest. Trust Him to take care of you.

Sometimes it is dark and my view becomes clouded

I feel I’m forsaken with nowhere to run

But Your love is revealed to me Lord through my trial

Your faithfulness shines through the clouds like the sun

 

 For In you I will find rest

In you I will find rest

In you I will find rest

Rest for my weary soul 

 

When I am in weakness you show yourself stronger

The thorn in my flesh is my friend not my foe

I find when it’s hard I’m still better to trust you

Than be lost without you and all on my own

 

For In you I will find rest

In you I will find rest

In you I will find rest

Rest for my weary soul

 

Somehow in my mess you make beauty from ashes

Nothing is wasted with what I’ve been through

Your purpose in this is to gently restore me

And use what has value to bring glory to you

 

For In you I will find rest

In you I will find rest

In you I will find rest

Rest for my weary soul

 

When life is not easy and grief is upon me

When feelings of loss make my heart overwhelmed

You tell me to come to you Lord for comfort

For you understand and will carry my load

 

And In you I will find rest

In you I will find rest

In you I will find rest

Rest for my weary soul

 

I come to the foot of your cross when I’m weary

Reminding  myself of your sacrifice

Beholding you and your love gives me courage

Your yoke is easy and burden is light

 

And In you I will find rest

In you I will find rest

In you I will find rest

Rest for my weary soul

All is well with my soul [MF]

Sharing another beautiful poem by my creative mate, Melinda Fletcher.

Distraction all around me

The cares of this life

People running to and fro

In worry and in strife

 

Pressure ever mounting

So much we must achieve

Knowledge is increasing

Expectations are on me

 

And then there is my body

Growing older every day

More aches and pains and troubles

That I pray to go away

 

Despite all of these troubles

I know what I must do

Despite my circumstances

I need to worship you

 

I need to worship you Lord Jesus

Lift my hands to you oh Lord

Keep my heart focused toward you

And my eyes upon your Word

 

I know deep down you love me

You are the anchor for my soul

Despite the crashing waves around me

It’s you I must behold !

I Declare [2]

Sharing this beautiful poem written by my uniquely creative friend, Melinda Fletcher.
“I must declare the promises
To overcome the doubt
For fear and worry have no power
When I speak them out

I must declare your word out loud
Despite all that I see
For natural circumstances
Try to take my eyes off thee
I must sing out your praises Lord
In everything I do
You already have my answers Lord
In everything you do

And even if I am overwhelmed
By the wind and all the waves
I know that you will rescue me
Through your amazing grace
I’d like not to go through the fire
But even if I do
In your love and faithfulness
You’ll carry me right through

I must stay within your presence lord
Abide within your word
Surround myself with worship
And believe all that I’ve heard

For you promised to be faithful God
Despite how bad I feel
Help me to be faithful lord
To rest and to be still

Help me to trust in you!!!

He will give you faith to remove it
Or grace to go through it
He is True to his word and loves you
Run to Him not from Him!!!
Believe Him. Now is your chance!
Rise to the challenge of faith despite sight!!!!”

Laugh

20140318-200627.jpg

Well, who like to argue with Dr Seuss’s philosophy. I’m sticking to his side. “I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.”

To truly laugh, you must be able take pain, and play with it. – Charlie Chaplin
We all know that life is never a bed of roses. There are seasons and you cannot avoid. During the season of darkness and pain, you literally have to take every once of body to find that joy. You need some people come along side to create the laughter, tell you jokes and see some comedy movies to lighten the hard season. Challenging season don’t last, the strong people last. Soon you will able to laugh and play again without effort.

Sharing this as it cracks me up! Lol Can’t wait to see the movie Noah by Russell Crowe.

HAPPY

20140317-174941.jpg

Good day, Beautiful People!
How awesome to know that talented Celebrity like Pharrell Williams is contributing back to society. His charity From One Hand To Another. So great that he is building a $35million after school centre in his hometown Virginia Beach. That just make me smile, knowing some high risk kids and teens are off the street at a safe place.

Whenever my mate, Jen & I listen to this song, we just forget about the daily grind and start doing the crazy dance. A good idea to release stress.

Love this song: Happy by Pharrell Williams
[Verse 1:]
It might seem crazy what I’m about to say
Sunshine she’s here, you can take a break
I’m a hot air balloon that could go to space
With the air, like I don’t care baby by the way

[Hook:]
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do

[Verse 2:]
Here come bad news talking this and that, yeah,
Well, give me all you got, and don’t hold back, yeah,
Well, I should probably warn you I’ll be just fine, yeah,
No offense to you, don’t waste your time
Here’s why

[Hook]

Hey, come on

[Bridge:]
(happy)
Bring me down
Can’t nothing bring me down
My level’s too high
Bring me down
Can’t nothing bring me down
I said (let me tell you now)
Bring me down
Can’t nothing bring me down
My level’s too high
Bring me down
Can’t nothing bring me down
I said

[Hook 2x]

Hey, come on

(happy)
Bring me down… can’t nothing…
Bring me down… my level’s too high…
Bring me down… can’t nothing…
Bring me down, I said (let me tell you now)

[Hook 2x]

Come on

20140317-174248.jpg

I’m happy all the time, because I choose to be HAPPY! I’m in charge of how I feel and TODAY I am CHOOSING HAPPINESS !
You deserve to be Happy!
Remember: Don’t let anyone or anything or any situation make you forget that.

Learn to enjoy the little things in life. Because one day you may look back and realise they were the big things!

The truth is not joy that make us grateful. It is gratitude that makes us joyful. One of my mission this year is to capture joyful moment.

Wisdom to ponder:
“A cheerful disposition is good for your health; gloom and doom leave you bone-tired.”- Proverbs 17:22 (message)

I declare:

Good Day, Beautiful People!
Your tongue has the power of life and death. Those who love to talk will eat the fruit of their words. -Proverbs 18:21

20140314-194901.jpg

Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit – you choose.

20140314-200800.jpg

Be careful of what you say & speak over yourself. Speak of things you want to see in your future.

Words are alive. So choose wisely.
