Food For Thought # 2

“As long as we define ourselves in terms of our pains and problems, we will never be free from them.”

Sunrise

I woke up this morning with a planned thought in mind:
Visit the beach to watch the sun rise beyond the horizon.
I did ❀️
It was breathtakingly beautiful as usual.
Despite this fact the sun was surrounded by clouds.
A little thought in my mind wanted to drift away with me
(focus on the clouds)
I almost wanted to turn my gazed towards the clouds.
Appreciatively I refocused my attention on the sun.
It was imperative that I stayed in touch with why was I there.
I was there to see the sunrise.
Oh my was the sight so magnificent. My mind sifted.
I stood in awe gazing at it and got lost in time just taking
Photos as it progressively rose higher and higher.
This was truly a sight to behold.
In spite of the clouds it rose so gracefully.
The atmosphere was tranquil!
There were people of the same mindset sitting around, some with children, others walking by, and of course there were some in the water…
The birds were flying by without a care in the world.
I felt liberated. I felt at peace. I felt the presence of God!
I felt compelled to do several sets of stretches.
It felt great being out by the beach watching the sunrise
Connecting with nature is non comparable to anything
I could think of at the moment πŸ€”
Peace and Liberation at its best!

Thankful

Almighty Creator,
I am forever indebted to You.
I am because You are.
Apart from You there is no existence.
No words or acts of gratitude could ever
Repay You for all You’ve done.
The very breath that I take is because of You.
How could I not take time out to express my gratitude.
I take this time to dedicate my thanks
To You, Almighty Creator.
Thanks for granting direction in my life.
Thanks for giving my life meaning.
Thanks for Your fortress of protection.
Thanks for my identity that lies in You.
Thanks for being a light unto feet.
Thanks for the Wonderful Shepherd that You are.
Thanks for being my Abba Father.
One I could always call on.
My heart is filled with reasons to thank you.
But yet, a million reasons could never compare
To all You’ve done, is doing, and will do.
Although this is true, I still take this time
To Thank You with all my heart.

At The Beach

There are times our inner man longs for the beach.
It craves for Salah moments, beautiful and peaceful.
Living near the waters would be my hearts delight.
Such a place would mean waking up in the wee hours of the morning.
I would sit and breath in the fresh air that engulfs the atmosphere.
I would gaze into the distance of the sea pass the horizon.
Imagine walking until you reach where the sky and sea meets.
Imagine for just a moment, walking across the ocean…
Into the vastness of the early morning light.
Pure delight…
This is where I pen away. This is where my thoughts run.
The scent, scenery, the sensation, all in one.
What a Magnificent Creator

God’s Promises to us, His dear children

This morning I woke up with this one thought in mind ~ God’s promises to us. He is such a loving and faithful God. He walks with us and commune with us even when we are not always aware of it. He’s so faithful. I’m stuck on faithful here because He is that to me and countless of us. His promises still stands. As I read His word I am reminded of the great things He has done, is doing now and will continue to do for us. I love the word “US.” I say this because I believe if I’m going through something you may be going through something also. When I pray for my family and all that pertains to me ~ You are included and that’s because You matter. God is Faithful and He will remain Faithful beyond eternity. He’s the one that carries us when we can’t carry ourselves. His plan for us is that we prosper and be in good health even as our soul prospers. When I look up at the heavens and see a Rainbow I am forever reminded of His great love towards me and all His promises spoken in His Words. It revives my inner being and I move forward with great stride because He rejuvenates me continually. Believe it or not He does the same for you. He is always there whether you acknowledge Him or not. He loves you with an Everlasting Love ❀ He is not man that He should lie. Put your confidence in Him Always, He will see you through anything that may come your way. He refers to “US” as His dear children. We are heirs of Christ. We have an inheritance because of Him being our Father ~ ABBA………… ❀ You are not alone. Keep dreaming and executing the precious things that is on your heart. Those things that would please Him and your family is worth achieving. Let your light so shine, do not relent in this time that we’re living in. Your continuous movement might just be what someone else may need to see for them to do the same. May the peace and love of God reside in your hearts, your home and in your community in Jesus Name Amen!!!!!
