Yet another epiphany

I couldn't help but share this song I stumbled upon. Yes, I'm still meditating on that Psalm 23. Did I mention its one of my favourite Psalms??? So yeah, thats no wonder I keep stumbling upon these things-songs and scriptures pertaining to it. I have decided to share the lyrics to this song also. Sadly they remind me of a dark time when a beloved of mine made it her business to find lyrics to songs that meant a lot to me, print them and send them to me, in that place where my hands were literally tied to do nothing else.

Im forever saying thank you to my girl @Chaud_TheMag but I will not tire of it, and again I say"Thank you". Just to be clear, the song does not make me sad. In fact, Im thankful for such, as it reminds me of the blessings I have and should be thankful for, instead of focusing on all the things that are wrong in my life. Once again I've found new meaning to this scripture....amazing.....

Psalms 23 :
Your hands reached into the depths of darkness,
Your arms pulled me to the light above them.
Your voice spoke the words that broke my heart,
and Your eyes burn with holy passion, fire, and love.

[Verse 2]
You lead me beside the quiet waters,
You are in the shadows of death's darkened doors.
You make tables right before my enemies,
You take oil and then You pour it over me.

You are my shepherd,
I will fear no evil (fear no evil).

You are my shepherd,
I will fear no evil (fear no evil).

Surely goodness and mercy,
shall cover me.

All the days of my life,
they shall cover me.

Surely I am going to dwell
in the house of the Lord
forever and ever,
forever and ever.

[Verse 2]


Ever and ever,
ever and ever more.
[repeat as desired]

The 23rd Psalm

One of my favourite Psalms. Only because I got to fully comprehend in my latter years what I'd learnt off heart in my very former years. Most of us probably recognise it as one of the most popular Psalms and over generations past, has been alluded to in song and verse alike. Even though its recited countless times, its when one gets an epiphany like this- that like me, you know there's no end to the magnitude of Gods awesomeness.

The Lord is my Shepherd

That's Relationship!

I shall not want

That's Supply!

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures

That's Rest!

He leadeth me beside the still waters

That's Refreshment!

He restoreth my soul

That's Healing!

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness

That's Guidance!

For His name sake

That's Purpose!

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death

That's Testing!

I will fear no evil

That's Protection!

For Thou art with me

That's Faithfulness!

Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me

That's Discipline!

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies

That's Hope!

Thou annointest my head with oil

That's Consecration!

My cup runneth over

That's Abundance!

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life

That's Blessing!

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord

That's Security!


That's Eternity!

Face it, the Lord is crazy about you. I have always known this fact, but its always refreshing to be reminded. Be blessed and I hope somebody has been encouraged. I know I have...

Thank God For Small Mercies

"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death"  Revelation12:10

I popped into Primark at the weekend, and my eyes caught on this panicked looking lady. She'd been lusting after a pair of shoes for a long time and while she had been saving up for them, they went in the sale. She got there to find about 15-20 pairs of sizes 3 & 4 and nothing bigger, and this lady is a 6. She looked and looked and looked, and just as she got to the last pair, she screamed "I love Jesus!!!" She really did scream in gratitude. Even a non-believer can believe it is only Jesus that makes such things possible. Takes me back to when He turned water into wine. Its was as though Jesus transformed a pair of size 3 into a 6 as she was rummaging through each pair from 1-18-just for her, her only one pair of 6...........

I soo wish I'd have taken a before and after picture. Primark would only be too glad to employ her. She painstakingly checked the bottom of each pair and arranged them neatly, according to size and colour, even sorting out mismatched pairs so she can separate the ones she had looked through and the ones she hadn't. She wasn't going to take any chances. It was like a work of art, labour of love, that she had to scream when she got her reward-her one and only pair of size 6's. In that moment, she was too overwhelmed with gratitude. In her state of indebtedness to God, she could not help but shout the name of Jesus. Small grace or not?? You decide. I would have publicly put my sign of the cross, (and sometimes even put my hands together in prayer position while looking up to the heavens) to thank the Almighty for a favour so generously granted.. I wish we all openly had the strength to openly declare what He has done for us, whether you deem it minor, your testimony could mean life to the next person.

     For mercies Small or Big - Im thankful to God.

In keeping with the "New Dawn: New beginnings" post, I thought I'd share this song which i love, love love. It is by Patti LaBelle feat. Mary Mary - Anything. You will soon learn how much I'm a fan of Mary Mary, not only are they a brilliant duo, but the lyrics in their music speaks to me in ways only God can explain. Have a listen, Gods blessings,xxx

Compliments of the New Year

We are already 23 days into the new year, and getting caught up in reorganising ourselves and focusing on new loves etc( I call it recalibrating) as we do,  we haven't put up a post yet to wish you every blessing for 2013. I received one of the most touching messages to date this year and it is such that Im inspired to pen this years very first post.

"When God puts a dream in your heart, when He brings opportunities across your path, do you step out boldly in faith, expecting the best, moving forward with confidence, knowing that you are well able to do what God wants you to do? Or do you shrink back in fear, and say, 'that's too big for me. I'm not qualified. I'm not able. I could never do that'. God wants to do a new thing in your life. But you've got to do your part and get outside that little box. Start thinking big and quit limiting God!" 

We all can be guilty of feeling like "little ol' me can achieve all that??" Being a new year and taking a bold and fresh step into trusting more in the Lord and the capabilities he has bestowed me, Ive got "that list" off of my organiser where its remained just but another page for most of last year. I have started acting upon my endeavours- however big or small. He will surely bless them as He has reassured me through his word that I can do all things through Him: Philipians4:13

Here's to a New dawn everyone. Let this day be your new beginnings ticket (If you haven't done so already). Be a new and better you in 2013. God's Blessings,xxx

Please do get in touch and let us know who or what inspires you. Be it on a day to day basis or in life as a whole. We would like to know.
