a psalm

A Psalm by Believer when she hit rock bottom and realised the only direction for help was from above

O Lord it is unto you
I lift up my eyes
and my soul and my hands
I lift up myself
For I have sunk to the depths
I smile to the world
But I cry on the inside
I feel overwhelmed
and am heavy with thought (Selah)
But through the darkness
the light of your word shines through
you said you are the I AM
Jehovah Shammah, ever present
Jehovah Shalom, Prince of Peace
Jehovah Tsikendu, my righteousness
Jehovah Rohi, my Shepherd
You are with me always
I can never hide from your presence
so I receive the strength i need
to overcome this day
and I will rejoice
because those who know their God
are strong and do exploits

I Dare you to.........Praise

I will exalt you, my God the King;I will praise your name for ever and ever. Every day I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever. Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; His greatness no one can fathom. One generation will commend your works to another;they will tell of your mighty acts. They will speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty,and I will meditate on your wonderful works. Psalm 145:1-5 (NIV) Bold mine

I asked; "What is praise?". He replied, "praise is an ATTITUDE that acknowledges that all that you are, all that you do and all that you have is all due to the fact that I love you and will always uphold my word concerning you and no, it isn't the fast songs you sing at the beginning of service"!!

I just noticed this morning that the last few psalms have to do with praising the Lord. So many times, the psalmist says "I will praise you". We can only praise God when we meditate on His wonderful works. I tend to worry about so many things and for a while I've not really been in a happy place but TODAY I decided to meditate on His wonderful works in my life.

He has...
redeemed me and adopted me into His family
made me fearfully and wonderfully
kept me alive and well
provided me with shelter and enough food to eat
kept my family safe and sound
created this earth with just the right concentration of oxygen in the atmosphere for me to breathe
given me a job
has answered my prayers
supplied me with talents
put the enemy to shame on my behalf on so many occasions
given me the ability to also be a blessing in a small way
given me the Holy Spirit who takes me from natural to supernatural
blessed me with a pastor who ministers into my life for TRANSFORMATION
forgiven me and taken me back each time I have strayed
connected me with people who have been such a blessing

Not everything in my life is the way that I want it to be, I know I'm not where I should be but I praise Him because when I look back, I can surely say He has been faithful. He has brought me from a mighty long way and I know that He still has a lot in store for me as long as I choose to walk in the way He has prepared for me. If you have time, meditate on Psalm 145, the psalmist does a better job in expressing his praise.

So, I DARE YOU to praise Him today as if you have received the answer to that one thing you have been believing God for. It is well. Remain blessed and highly favoured. 2008 continues to remain our year of UNCOMMON TESTIMONY.

Come and join me sing hallelujah
Jehovah Jireh has done me well

He'll do it again, He'll do it again
Yes, He will do it AGAIN
Just take a look at where you are NOW
and where you've been
He'll ALWAYS come through
For us
He's the same now as then
Don't you know God cannot change
We may not know HOW, we may not know WHEN
But He'll do it AGAIN

This God!

This our God we serve, honestly He is truly interested and involved in the affairs of men. I was just watching Gladiators on Sky (yes o, I'm a big Gladiators fan..i think the new one on Sky is fab!!!)Anyways, one of the male contenders caught my interest (not in the way you may be thinking!!). My first impression was that he had a rather small frame and then when he spoke, the first thing he said was that he was a Christian, he believed in God and that although he looked like David, God enabled David slay Goliath! I was impressed about how he was so vocal about his faith.
Well the games started but the gladiators are HUGE; Tornado, Destroyer, Oblivion aah even me I really felt for the guy because the other contender was more evenly matched physically speaking to the gladiators. As I expected, when it got to the eliminator there was a whopping 11 seconds between them.

When he was asked what he thought about his chances, he said that God's will would be done. Can I confess?? I laughed, the way I imagine Sarah must have laughed when the angels said.."by this time next year, you will have a child". My sister looked at me and said "You never know". I was like, this guy has lost. Not only is he smaller, the larger guy has a time advantage on him. So the race started and as I predicted, the big guy was seriously in the lead but like from nowhere, the small guy kept reducing the gap until they were neck and neck. Suddenly 'Goliath' fell and my guy got into the lead. At the last obstacle, he didn't have any strength to go on and for a minute it seemed like 'Goliath' would win but as if from nowhere, 'David' got the strength to get to the top and my mouth was agape for a few minutes. My sister just looked at me and said, "I told you so". Even the host on the show commented that it must have been God's will that he won.

As we go into a new week, sometimes it may feel like the odds are stacked against us, we are like David and our challenges seem to be like Goliath but we need to remember that we serve a God who is bigger than any situation that we may face. He is a God who can use 4 lepers to defeat a mighty army, 300 men with lamps and trumpets to defeat an army. He does not look at our physical sizes, he looks at the size of our faith. So, go with God. When all your strength is gone, lean on Him. He makes impossibilities possible.

Have an absolutely wonderful week and remember that 2008 continues to remain our year of UNCOMMON testimonies. It is well.

Remain blessed and highly favoured.

If 8 equals New beginnings and 5 equals Grace then today reminds me that between one new beginning and the next the grace of God is sufficient. I was just pondering on some stuff asking God how many times I had to start over. He said as long as His grace remains sufficient, I can start over. Then as I was labelling something and wrote the date, I undersood what He was saying.

I love you Daddy because you can speak ANYWHERE and ANYTIME to ANYONE who is WILLING to listen. Thanks for making my day today. You know I really needed that.

Remain blessed and highly favoured. 2008 continues to remain our year of uncommon testimony.

Praising Him...home style!!


Saturday, 3 May 2008


And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you Exodus 3:14 (KJV)

He is indeed that I AM. He says...

I AM....

the way where there seems to be no way
the light where you seem to be surrounded by darkness
the living water that quenches your thirst permanently
the wisdom you need to unravel the mysteries of life
the refuge that anchors you in the storm
the healing that makes you whole
the word that encourages you in spite of your circumstances
the One who loves you unfailingly, irrevocably and totally
the testimony that puts your enemies to shame
the strength that keeps you going
the shield that surrounds you in the battle

I AM all these and more..you just have to search the Word to discover more. Walk in the knowledge of me that you have and become an overcomer.

There is nothing like taking time to stay in the presence of God, it's a place of comfort and strength. You get what you need to keep going. Life can be difficult but I'm blessed to always have someone and somewhere I can go.

Remain blessed and highly favoured. 2008 continues to be our year of UNCOMMON testimony. Remain expectant.
