Every Nation will bow before my name from Psalm 46

Monday, 1 May 2017


Come to me my child
Wont you sit down awhile
Wont you be still
Wont you be silent
And rest awhile
My child

Be still and know who I am
That I am the Son of Man
And will forever be
By your side
All day and night
Be strong

Every nation will bow before my name
Nothing will ever be the same
I will be honoured far and wide
For my Father, He is my guide
Forever and ever
Forever and ever
Amen

Though the heavens thunder
I will never be asunder
From my God
He is my rock
He reigns in me
Forever more

Every nation will bow before me
Each tribe and distant tongue
For soon my time will come
To reign on earth again
Nothing will be the same
On earth again

Just surrender and abide in me
Rest awhile and simply be
For I am the God of Israel
I will claim her land again
I will reign
Forever and a day

Every nation will bow before my name
Nothing will ever be the same
I will be honoured far and wide
For my Father, He is my guide
Forever and ever
Forever and ever
Amen

Be Still

Monday, 1 May 2017


Be still and know that I am here
For always I am forever near
If you call upon my name
Rest assured that I will hear
Be still

Be Still, take time to rest
Listen to the birds in their nest
Just singing their mother’s song
Just know there is no second best
Be still

Be still and take time to grow
In my presence you will know
That I am here forever
Through you my seeds I sow
Be still

For I am your refuge and strength
In times of trouble
In times of need and times of joy
Just know that you will not crumble
For as you seek me
You will find me wherever you are
Just through me you will simply
Be still

Be still, come sit awhile at my feet
Listen, come to me and meet
With me in worship
For through this worship there is no defeat
Be still

Be still and know that I am God
I wont beat you with an iron rod
If you wander array
Under my feet you will not be trod
Be still

Be still and listen to my voice
To grow in me there’s no other choice
Take heed and listen to my words
Take time and with me rejoice
Be still

It's Just Another Day

Thursday, 27 April 2017

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah 

I’m feeling kind of lonely
But that’s not to say
That I am not forever homely
With you by my side
I have nothing to hide

It’s just another day here
What can I say
Please do me another turn dear
And play me another tune
I’ve got nothing to lose

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah 

What can I say – it’s just another day
Nothing changes around here
Cause for now it’s going my way
It’s all for a good cause baby
For now things are good, maybe

Hey ha hey ha  etc
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah etc

With the rushing wind
There’s time to change
I’m forever running
Forever burning
But hey nothing remains the same

Yeah etc

Take Delight In Me: Based from Psalm 37

Thursday, 27 April 2017

Be still my child, hearken unto my voice
Can you not hear, can you not see
So listen to me, take heed and rejoice
Let your heart be still for now and always
To hear my words, you have no other choice

Do not be afraid for I am always here
You are not to worry about other’s intentions
Feel my thoughts coming from the atmosphere
For my child I am here for you now and ever more
I am always with you as I am forever near

Take delight in me my child
Take my hand and walk with me
Through the green glades you will forever be
By my side you will be in the land and prosper
So take delight in me my child

For the strength of the wicked will be shattered
If they do not take heed to my voice
They will forever be bruised and battered
No more will they feel the drops of rain
For it will be that thy people will be scattered

I will I promise make steps for my very own
As I delight in every detail of your being
You will one day I assure you head to my throne
For this day is coming I assure you
For judgement day is coming and the wicked will groan

Take delight in me my child
Take my hand and walk with me
Through the green glades you will forever be
By my side you will be in the land and prosper
So take delight in my child

I will endeavour to keep you safe always
For this I promised from the very beginning
Any evil in this land I will keep far away
Far from you as I treasure your innermost being
This world will one day be a memory a distant phase

So my child take delight in me
For your King I will forever be
No sticks or stones will break my bones
For in me you will worship and you alone

What do you do?

Thursday, 27 April 2017


Do you manage to find time to pray
To me each and every day
Do you find my way isn’t your style
Maybe you just go your own sweet way
What do you do?

Do you manage to read My Word
Or is this for you too absurd
Or do you just sit and be still awhile
Or are you too busy on your mobile
What do you do?

What do you do my child
You see I know you inside out
Maybe to seek me for you is too wild
Or perhaps you’re full of doubt
It’s not just about towing the line
But it’s about taking the time
To walk and talk and be with me
Throughout each and every day

Do you just pretend I’m not there
And go your own merry way
Or do you hang around and just stare
Into nothing but empty space
What do you do?

Do you just think I don’t know
What you do with all your time
Maybe your too busy with your beau
To spend enough time with me
What do you do?

What do you do my child
You see I know all there is to see
You can’t run away and hide
Behind those big fancy trees
Maybe it’s about time
You just faced the truth
It’s not just about towing the line
It’s about your daily life
And giving up your time
And following me
So I ask you one more time -  what do you do?

Those who are willing

Wednesday, 26 April 2017

Those who are willing
To wait upon me
Will gain their new strength
From the love that I breathe
They will fly high
With the wings of a bird
Rush like the wind
With the power of my Word
Stirred up inside
With nothing to hide
No longer ashamed
Delivered from pain

Are you now willing
To give me a chance
For life I have given
Was planned in advance
Your weakness I'll take
And give you back strength
Enough to uphold you
In future events
 I am the God
Who lovingly cares
And I'll take you to
The place I've prepared

The Kingdom of Heaven
Is that dwelling place
From which flows the river
Of mercy and grace
Until the time comes
To call you by name
Rest in my presence
And you will remain
Saved by the blood
A prisoner set free
Willing to serve
And wait upon Me

If I could hold your hand once again

Tuesday, 11 April 2017

If I could hold your hand once again
I would forget all about the pain
I would if I could go on for ever
Seeking to endure or to endeavour

Why o why did you have to go
As you need to know I loved you so
Through the pouring rain and the tears
I would give you back time throughout the years

If only you were here once more
I would go on loving you more than I did before
I would dance away to my heart’s content
For I know for me you were heaven sent

Why O why did you have to go
As you need to know I loved you so
Through the pouring rain and the tears
I would give you back time throughout the years

But now I know you are in a safe place
No more pain or grief will you have to face
Through Jesus’ eyes you are home at last
No longer will you have to face the past

Why O why did you have to go
Wasn’t our love enough I need to know
But now I guess you can put the past to rest
Soon to be a distance memory, it’s for the best

But if I could hold your hand once again
There’s nothing I would change,
Forever you will be the same

Dear Lord

Thursday, 6 April 2017

There are many times
I find it hard to show my love to you
And the going gets tough
and I;m finding it rough
But in the end I know I'm gonna get through

O Dear Lord I need you more than ever

When I'm lying awake
I look back to the time you set me free
and I'm thankful to You
Just knowing it's true
That on on the cross you died for me at Calvary

O Dear Lord I need you more than ever

O Dear Lord I need you more than ever
You know how much I love you
You know how much I need you
I need you now
I need you for all eternity
Oh yes this much I know is true

Not so long ago
I seemed to be running to hide from you
I was churning inside
Not swallowing my pride
Once again I knew I needed you

O Dear Lord I need you more than ever
You know how much I love you
You know how much I need you
I need you now
I need you now for all eternity
This much I know is true

My War Binder

Saturday, 25 February 2017


The above is a photo of My War Binder and if you would like to know how to make one then watch the video below - it really is very simple :)




So what exactly is a War Binder you may ask - well if you have watched the film The War Room then you will know this film is all about prayer - so a group of ladies decided to create a group called War Binder and War Binder Faithful Penpals, this is so that those of us who wanted to could share prayer requests plus get to know and make new friends. The War Binder is basically a Travellers Notebook (which you can get from a store such as Michael's in the USA and Canada) or from Amazon plus you can get notebooks to fit into your binder. You can label the notebooks in the binder with tabs and decorate the binder as to how you wish. This binder is to help you with your prayer life. Now quite a few people have created what is called A War Room using a closet or room in their homes or if you have not got space then you can just use a corner of your room which is what I have done. I have a desk, laptop, shelves for craft plus a book shelf with prayer books and my journalling bible on it and this shelf is above my desk.


So why not go ahead and start your very own War Binder and/or prayer closet today. Spending much needed time in prayer will help you to draw closer to The Lord and having both my own "Prayer" space and War Binder is helping me for sure :)

Have fun plus if you are on facebook and want to join War Binder Faithful Penpals - just request to join, though I will say this is mostly for women at the moment!.


His Glory

Saturday, 25 February 2017

The air that you breathe so silently so perfectly
So beautifully,
Was His gift given so uniquely to you
You are His true workmanship, a gift so truly
Perfected and only one that he alone could do
Just look and see all around you his creation
The birds, the flowers, leaves on the trees
He made everything so that you would know and see
His wonderful glory, so majestic and true
So real, so fabulous, so amazing
Wherever you are, just breathe in His wonderful air
The gift that only He alone could bare

The air that you breathe is exquisite, wondrous
And free
Therefore, just be all that he wants you to be
From the very beginning, you were formed
Along with the heavens, the stars, the earth
He had you in his mind all along
For only He knows where you belong
He knows everything about you,
Every tiny detail from the inside out
Your tears, your pain, laughter and joy
He made you in the very image of Him
His gift to you for which he went out on a limb

The air that you breathe is fragile, exquisite
Made gloriously
As right from the start he knew you would be set apart
He sees nothing but beauty in your very heart
He knows you so well, though you may not feel it
Or see it but it is so true
Do you know Him, can you see Him,
Can you feel Him
Just reach out and feel His love shine all around
For he is standing right beside you
Even carrying you when you need Him too
Just be still and allow his glory to shine through you

His glory that comes through the heavens
A gift for both you and me
So beautiful beyond belief
So majestic, so powerful, so real
There is no other gift on this earth for you that is ideal
He alone is majestic in everything that you see
He has created you for all that He wants you to be
So you see the air that you breathe so silently
So perfectly, so beautifully
Is His gift given so uniquely to you
For You are His workmanship, a gift so truly
Perfected and only one that He alone could do

Looking Out From The Inside

Saturday, 25 February 2017

Looking out from the inside
I had so much to hide
Why O why
I constantly cried
I wondered did this have to be me

Looking out from the inside
Often times where I lied
Why O why
All that happened, I couldn't abide
Living on the edge constantly ashamed

There's a sound of raging thunder
Nothing that appeared asunder
Nothing ever seemed the same again
But who's to blame
Wandering around in the darkness
There's no pain that feels quite like this
Who and where and what and how to be
If only this were just a dream

Looking out from the inside
Feelings of being tied
Why O why
There was no one I could confide
Loneliness, despair, rejection - all the time

There's a sound of raging thunder
Nothing that appeared asunder
Nothing ever seemed the same again
But who's to blame
Wandering around in the darkness
There's no pain that feels quite like this
Who and where and what and how to be
If only this were just a dream

It Feels Like Only Yesterday

Wednesday, 18 January 2017



It Feels Like Only Yesterday
It feels like only yesterday
That we were together
And I thought this was meant to be
But how wrong could I be
The thought of you and me
Into the distance memories fade away

The path we were on so broken
Now take a look at us
The love we once shared now shattered
Now nothing really matters
My self esteem in tatters
Moving forward seems so hard to do


How did this happen I wonder?
Now just an empty road
I just cant seem to just let go
The gentle whispers in my ear
I cant feel them but I can still hear
It feels like only yesterday


A love that once was so strong
It felt so right together
Even though we shed tears and laughter
It was for me happy ever after
We could sail away on rafters
Forever and a day, just together

I guess the damage has been done
Our paths no longer cross
I’m lost for words, what can I say
No going back, there is no way
Time to go forward from today
From a distance, you’ll soon be a memory


How did this happen I wonder?
Where did our love go wrong?
Now it’s just an empty song
I know every story has a reason
I now need to put all my trust in Jesus
No more yesterday’s, my only hope is in today

Wednesday Snap Shot

Wednesday, 4 January 2017


Wednesday Snap Shot is a quick peek into my week.

If you'd like to join in on my Wednesday Snap Shot.. copy and paste my post, add your answers (you can also copy the pic).. link your post to my blog and then come back and let me know you shared your week. I'll come and visit you and read about your homemaking week!! :) and you can go to Crystal's Blog here who started the Wednesday Snap Shot HERE


So Far This Week I have also used my Spiralizer and made tons of spiralized veggies which 3/4s are in the freezer to be used over the next couple of weeks - yum :). 


I have also started a bible reading plan with a group on facebook and we are going through the book of 1 John at the moment which is such fun plus we are reading through a book called "How to study the bible" - I have yet to receive mine in the post which will hopefully arrive by the end of this week along with a couple of Christian Women's magazines I have ordered too.

I have also made a card and put in the post cards and pressies for birthdays at the beginning of this month.


On My To-Do List is to do some much needed housework at some point, hoping the hoover won't scare my kitten too much. Plus I intend making some menu plans for the coming weeks

My goals for this week are:

To lose at least 3lbs in weight for Slimming World next week. 
Be more consistent with my bible reading
Read and study Psalm 1 to go through with a friend next Wednesday
To not hide myself away to much at home which I can so easily do.

Projects I'm Working On I plan on working on putting together a "War Journal" this is a series of journals inside what is called a Traveller's Notebook which I shall "pretty up" and make my own with various scriptures and stickers etc. This is the only project I am working on at the moment.

Today's Weather  -1 which it has been for most of the day. it has been sunny near enough all day but with a hard frost on the ground and bitterly cold

The View from where I am sitting: I am facing my  prayer wall which has all kinds of prayers posted :)

What I'm Reading. I am still reading Beauty for Ashes from Joyce Meyer and this is a brilliant book for women. The book is about receiving emotional healing from all kinds of areas that may be needed during your life. It is a good book and one I hope to come back to time and time again. 

I am also reading and studying my bible which is good and though I missed yesterday's reading I am going to make sure that I keep up on this on a daily basis.

What I'm Listening To. My cat moving around on the windowsill and the quiet gentle hum of my laptop. Otherwise you can hear a pin drop in my apartment lol

Something Frugal I've Done This Week. I peeled lots of veggies and added these to a ziploc bag which is in my freezer waiting for me to make vegetable stock at some point in the next few weeks :)


Fitness for the Week. I still have not started walking yet as i said I was going to but I will be I can assure you for definite and this week too hopefully :)


Weight Loss:  Well I started slimming world today and I have 74lbs to lose. I weighed in at 228lbs  which is the heaviest I have ever been so I do plan on losing this weight this year and I was so upset when I got weighed today at SW so I need to do something about it. Yep way to go forward for sure..............

vegetables and more vegetables!

Sunday, 1 January 2017


Here is a bag and a half of vegetable peelings from using the spiralizer today. These bags are in the freezer ready for me to add more peelings next time and then I will make vegetable stock which should make quite a lot.



I have used my spiralizer for the first time today and have made a bag of courgette (zucchini) spaghetti which is in the fridge and will last about four days.

The other bags of mixed vegetables I have spiralized and grated as well and put these in the freezer ready to make wholesome meals with - so looking forward to my new way of eating vegetables :)

Blessings
