Entering Into A New Season

Image may contain: text

So anyways, the LORD tells me that HE will be with me where ever I go. I will still bring with me the anointing. 
Thinking about this seriously.
God’s work is very hard work.
We become the LORD’S favourite when we obey HIS commandments and statutes. HE really knows everything before it happens. HE knows the 2764 of all people.
Yet, HE chooses whom HE wants for HIS purpose. For HIS glory. For HIM and HIM alone.
It is kinda difficult to understand or comprehend all that HE does.
HE knows what we are going to choose even before the foundation of the earth.
Yet, HE knows those that are going to choose HIM and the right choices.
So complicated to comprehend. But, so true. Right.
Used to be given a word to eat. One by one by one by one.
Used to be given a verse, all over Scripture.
One verse by one verse by one.

And then, I fed myself.

And then I started to find out the meaning of Scripture all by myself. Cos I wanted to.
s525284160812489260_p30_i23_w640 I cannot comprehend the darkness.
If you were me sitting under the light. The presence of Christ our LORD, then you would understand. Seeing, I mean.
Like the light up there, shining down. The glory of the LORD.
I’m unafraid of Jesus. HE is my home. My safety. My 2764.
We truly become one with Jesus as HE is one with the Father.
Just dunno how it works as They are divine and I’m just this person.
d1f0cca6cb7aea82f380e0fed32c7443
The old tree right. Throughout my life and in time.
How hard it is to get here in tact.
In the word.
In obedience.
In 2764
The friendship one.
The LORD does not expect perfection.
HE just expects us to give HIM all of our time and 2764
I have good teachers.
EN_Psalm_100_4

Can you see what is ahead of you?
I can.
The LORD shows you what is ahead of you. HE shows you the path that you are going to take. Plain clear.
Think the closer the walk, the deeper into the ROCK. The more fastened you are deeply rooted into the word, this is, Christ our LORD, the Christ, things become clearer.
Options.
The thing is, I know. The thing is, teachers of the LORD, prophets, know, I know. The thing is I see. Sometimes seeing has it’s benefits.
I have entered into this confidence that where ever, whatever. God is with me.

Sophie’s first Master’s Final. It has only been one month. She now has lots and lots of bowling friends. Everyone talks to her. She discusses her game with everyone and tells them about technique. She is never without a friend in the bowling alley now. She is now popular. Busy. No time. Always laughing and smiling. This is what the game is all about. Even at the sociable level. It is my hope, I have told her she goes with a social group to the Open’s all over Asia like I used to and mix with other bowlers of other countries. At the social level. She will be accepted cos of her form. She is a bowler. Well liked and one of us.
She was fifth at one point and she could not think nor move. She froze.
 you neighbour as yourself. Help those who are hurting. Who do not know how to fend for themselves out in the world. Be a good Samaritan. 2764 one another. Share your talents and do not be selfish. Do not take but give. In 2764
Friendship – Phillia
She is so happy she can hardly breathe.
156 average.
Not bad for a first.
We have all been there and done that right. Well, us bowlers. My first game was 76. So, we all start from the very bottom and rise ……….. I started with a 7? average and finished my career with a 213 in a Master’s Final and a 218 in a twelve back to back six game aggregate. Two days. Think that was in Guam.
I took my shot from the left. Just a softer surface. Of course I can scratch her surface but then she won’t be able to control the shot as it flips.
Gonna teach her another two lines next week. Then she’ll have four option as a first shot.
I was trained four times a week on a one-on-one basis and then in tournaments I was to think through shots by myself with all the technique I had learnt. So, I told Sophie, it is best she makes her own decisions after learning the technical part of the game. It’s the best way to learn, by trail and error by yourself.
I bowled in this tournament way back when as well, when I was a beginner.

Share your talents.

Actually, the truth be known, my friends in the bowling centre are giving me face. Cos I’m not only one of them, I’ve worked hard for my country.

The truth be known, my friends in the faith are giving me a lot of face, cos of my calling and my anointing and how hard I have served the faith.

Move It

heart divider

The most fearful place to be in is to be in stagnation.
canstock25622455
Not moving. Not going forward nor upward. Just no growth. Once, one of our National Team bowlers was in this place. He only had one shot. He had been all over the world but only had this one line. Just one. All over the world. Our coach came into his office as I was ready for my training time with him. Eric came in and slammed the door. Yelled at me. Are you going to stay in the one place with no change. Just one shot. Not go anywhere. I looked at him and said, ‘Not me. I’m going places.’ Don’t stagnate in the one same place, he yelled and we went off for my training time with him.
I have a huge bible library. Now they are sending me entire books to read. There is always another option. They sent me more hermeneutic books and topical books. It’s interesting. Learn more off the bible. Scripture. Read. Rather than read books that teach about the world, why not God. Even words. We can be sitting on just one word like forever. There are so many other words. Like that guy. He quit. He left as he just could not get past the ten. And to make it even funnier. He did not even know if it was as it was only there abouts. hahahahahahahahaha Poor fellow. We got going. At least I did. There is a difference between not having it and not trying to improve yourself in your talents. Or even life in itself. There is so much to do. So many places in the world. We would like to see more places in the world we have not been to as we are getting old now and would like to see more of the world. Places we have not been to.
s525284160812489260_p32_i25_w640
Some of you are just in the same ole place doing the same ole things. You are not moving forward and upwards. Towards the Christ. There is a vast library written by the greats. You can start your own book. About Jesus and the spiritual things of God. Make haste. Jesus is returning. You may be going round and round the same ole place over and over again. Do something new. It does get boring. Same song. Same words. Same bible verse. Same ole same ole same ole. There is a vast amount of words to pick from. To choose from. To learn about the LORD. To find the very heart of God. Don’t stay on the one old spot like there are no tomorrows. Get out of the rut.
So I’m told.

What A Long Day!!!

s525284160812489260_p30_i23_w640
I had a full day and a lot of fun today. It started with Luke in our PUP study. I concluded that Jesus went for the one. The Lesson asked us to look for the one. Jesus healed people along HIS journey. Demon possessed. The sick. The dead. And it was the one. And then another and then another and another and another. It just went on and on and on and they could not even write it all down. What HE did. The good Samaritan. It’s like the lost sheep. The lost coin. It was all fun. We had a great discussion. 

I then had a real good time with Sophie today. A good two hours. I explained the fundamentals of the game and now after many hours of discussion she has been able to come to conclusions why she erred on her own accord. Now she can join in group discussions with bowlers in SCAA whereas in the past she did not know why she could not hit the head nor pick up spares nor why she backed up. She bowled alone and no one was really interested in getting to know her as a bowler. My heart sank when she told me this. So I decided to teach her the fundamentals of the game so she would be a bowler so she could enjoy the friendships that come with the game. I used to wonder what my coaches were thinking about as they watched me train under their instructions. Now I can relate to their attention to detail on a one-to-one basis, fine tuning is easy to change. One small step at a time. Indeed, we are not creating robots, but minds that think and know the reasons why mistakes take place. I’m really enjoying Sophie and today as Sophie is enjoying me, when I gave her a second option to the head, she ran up to me and gave me a first hug. She was overjoyed with emotion.

Here’s one of Sophie’s first go at 25.
Share my talents.
Janette Baker’s song was ‘The Eye Of The Tiger’ when I first met her and then she won the World Cup for the very first time. Then we had met along the world circuit as years gone by. But then we met in Sao Paolo just before she won the World Cup for the second time.
This was my song, one November, I found the bowling hero in me.
Sophie will find her own song and the hero in  her.
I told her I would teach her to fight next week. Not people.
I had this talk. A sat down one. As for the first time I cried on the lanes. So my coach sat me down for a talk. He told me that I did not have to get it all right or be perfect but only 60% to 70% and I would win a medal of any colour. And that the fight was not against others but myself. A darn good fight as I would doubt and lose focus and everything would then go wrong. Therefore the fight was against self and not others. I was not to go out to fight against  others but to beat my own self-confidence. Then he showed me what to do in the physical. And go and not look back and not stop until the very end. The last pin.
In the years gone by, I have had to be told to stop, as the end has ended in Masters Championships. Ahead. Some. The one in Taiwan I was a full game ahead and Catherine came up to me and said, ‘You can stop now.’ And I did. Then she told me how far ahead I was and that it was unimaginable. I could have gone on. In those days it was sixteen games in the Masters. Straight. After the Singles, Doubles, Triples and Fives. Long week. Endurance. So, you see Janette’s song. The killer instinct. But, alone. No bystanders. No on-lookers. No one around. The battle is against self. The fight.
I’m a champion and I do not have any doubts nor fear of being one.
Think this changes my perspective in my spiritual walk with Jesus.
You see, the hero I found that day in me, was Jesus.
HIS 2764 deep inside my 2764 
and it gave me courage to continue on with Jesus to the very top of the game. I was not alone. The agony of defeat was so painful as I had put my entire 2764 into the game. Think anyone of us three, would tear and cry at the thought of what we had to give up for the game. The cost of the game. This is the reason though my eldest grandson is so good at the game, I would not consider taking him along the same path unless he wants to on his own steam. Your 2764 literally breaks at the loss of the medal. So at the end of the day, we are a people of great courage. Courageous. Nothing fazes us.  

I was then off to the dietitians. She was such a nice lady. There was hardly anyone else there, like always, even at the Sports Institute. She gave me lots of things I should eat throughout the day. So, I shall do it. She enjoyed me so much she wants me to go back next month again. I enjoyed her as well. She is so nice. And it costs nothing. Nada.

Off to little John was I then and he was off for a bit but eventually came to me and hugged me. A first time. I landed a little kiss on his head. He is such a lovely little boy. He had been away, you see. In China for two weeks. Or more. I cannot remember. Back to his usual. 

I spoke to my friends from my teenage years yesterday. Or last night really. They are so fun. And also Madd, when I was in my twenties. Grandchildren, we have. In hordes.

We are going on summer vacation to Alaska and visit with my uncle in San Francisco. He is from San Leandro. My mum and brothers are from Hayward. They are Californians and I am a Brit. I chose it when I was three. When asked on the bus to the village, as we lived in the government compound, ‘What is your nationality, you pretty little girl?’ To my parents dismay, ‘English.’ So my father called me aside and told me I was Portuguese but I told him I was ‘English’. So when my family decided to immigrate, I stayed. They left. I got a green card but I let it lapse. I was English, after all. Not American. I was raised to know my own path and not just blindly follow. I just follow the LORD, I was raised to. Not man.

Gotta Study More

This is so me since I started reading. Think I was five. I got my first book in school and read the entire book. The book was supposed to be for the entire year but I finished it on a oner. Then when I asked for another one, my mother said, I only had one and sent me to our church library, where I sat and read and read and read. These days my devotionals and bible studies are all that I read. I know nothing about the news of this world. I focus on the news of the LORD. Think to know the seasons and the times of the LORD is more important. Then everything falls into perspective of what the LORD is doing and how far we are from the second coming of our LORD Jesus who is the Christ. Right church. I wrote way back then as well. Lots and lots and lots. My teachers would look at me when I would right ten pages when others could not even ever write a full page. I was writing a book way back then as well. I have to say that after I learned how to type it was much faster than using a pen. I have lovely handwriting. Only cos I wrote so much and thought in those days that if you were going to write and someone was going to read what you were writing you had better have good handwriting otherwise, they would squirm and dump your writing from lack of being able to read it. I have copy book handwriting.

I served in Alpha last night. It was quite long. The video was very long as I’ve watched it so many times before. I do not like repeats. Except love stories. I love love stories. The poor young lady beside me found it quite long as she had had this very long day at work. She is an accountant and with all those numbers going round and round and round and round and people’s money arrangements, it must have been some day for her and then the resurrection.
Actually, I was taught, by video, in a ‘Preach The Gospel’ seminar that we are to take it very small steps at a time. Then it was explained to us by my mentor’s husband who is the senior pastor that people do not need it shoved down them all at once. Tiny steps at a time. People are more comfortable with this method of being reached. So the issue was the resurrection. I was sympathetic. When even just dealing with believing which is big enough that Jesus is God, then we tell someone that they must believe  that Jesus rose from the dead. As believers we, ourselves believe it. Or we can put it even this way. Even as believers we have doubts throughout our spiritual walk about things. So this poor lady just could not get the resurrection. I did not blame her as she has not yet got that Jesus is the Son of God and this actually might deter her from even the basic John 3:16. Now this was taught me that small sips off the spoon is more than enough. Then we shove the entirety …. it does not work. I mean these people have had a hundred years of experience.
1f642
You get my drift. If not, you did not do the seminar.

At least she is coming back but not in two weeks. Three. Though she did look very tired from the beginning and in the end she looked quite exhausted.

Yes, we are defined by the LORD. HIS word defines who we are and supposed to be. Even when we fail it is alright, cos in repentance, we are forgiven when we ask in Jesus’ name. We are forgiven. We may not be perfect but we serve a God who is.
Jesus Jesus Jesus

Been talking to my secondary school friends. It has been fun and my friend in my twenties. It has been a lot of fun as well and Sophie is so in love with the game. She brings back my memories of the game. I do not think I could ever be a social bowler. When you finish at the top of the game, world wise, there is no way anything less than there is possible. Think it stays for the rest of my life. But, it has been a pleasure, serving my country in the fun, but heart-break manner, when I lose.

We are going to go on summer vacation and extend it.

See a few friends. Dance with banners. See grandchildren. Just have fun. Life is a blast y’all.

It’s Just All All All About Jesus At The End Of The Day

Are we not all individuals who are created by the LORD for HIS own individual purpose. Used to HIM and HIM alone. Well, for those who are willing.
🙂
I’ve always been a God seeking woman and an athletic and love going to the front to find out about what is happening. I have always asked questions so that I could get answers. For the things I’m interested in. Bu then I was grown this way from birth. To be the person God wants me to be. HIS and HIS alone. I mean gosh, at the end of it all, when it’s all said and done really, everything on this earth will be destroyed and there will be a new heaven and new earth and we will be with Jesus forevermore. The main point. The main objective. Better get it right here and now for then and then, the forevermore.

 

I listened to this song for four years. It was edifying.
Last Sunday I worshiped in the middle of the altar. I do not do it often but I wanted to listen and see from my  what the LORD was saying. Telling us. From the depths of my  A place only HE can reach and HE fashioned me with HIS very own hands. Be still and know that I AM God. This place. We are all individuals fashioned by HIM destined by HIM to fulfill HIS purpose that HE intends. Present tense.
So there I was listening intently with the eyes of mine  and was so surprised but so glad in mine  
I saw this centre like something fell in the midst of a plain and the ripples went out. I’ve seen this before, in my relationship with Jesus and then I wondered if I had to jump into the centre of it. But I was not to do this and I knew. So, I inquired of the LORD. Of course. Ask and you will know right.
Our worship singer, Marianne, I think her name is. This is her crown.
Awesome right.
I got it already a long long time ago you must all remember.
She’s got one.

Sometimes it’s just this simple.

mota_ru_0032901

And the funny thing, though I was not looking with my own earthy eyes, but mine  my spiritual eyes, she was kneeling down singing when this was all happening. At the feet of Jesus. So touching. So touching to see our children live a victorious life in Christ. Is this not what it is really all about church? I’m in tears here. As older ones in our church it is our hope to see the victory of our children take along the path of holiness which we have taken in the years gone past.
To God be the glory.
We worship at the feet of Jesus and our children are following us along the path of holiness.
And there was Petrina, face gleaming when she spoke. And I saw the glory of the LORD on her face.
Glory be to our Father, HIS Son, Christ JESUS our LORD and Saviour and the Holy Spirit. 

Luke 7:37-38 ESV
37And behold, a woman of the city, who was a sinner, when she learned that he was reclining at table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of ointment, 38and standing behind him at his feet, weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head and kissed his feet and anointed them with the ointment.

Love And Bowling

In conclusion to ‘love’, it is this simple. Dig deep and find truth for yourself. Exegesis it yourself and look up the cross references and compare Scripture and find out the true intention of the author and what the LORD is saying to us all. What I was told. Dig deep.
Divine love is God and HIS alone. HIS nature and HIS character.
HIS love far exceeds ours as HE far exceeds whom we could ever imagine HE is.
Therefore I philia, friendship.
I’m sure it’s good enough.
I eros my husband and Jesus.
Jesus agapes me.

I coached Sophie today and it was so enjoyable. Think I’m in a new season of my walk again. It was lovely coaching tenpin as all that I learnt I shared with her. My experiences on the world circuit. It’s all about the game in the end. She loved learning. She said half a month ago if she was a bowler as her failure to be one for the last two and a half years made her feel that she could not ever look like a bowler nor bowl like one. Indeed, in the beginning I also wondered myself but in the month that followed, she began to display the form I had been taught. The placing of all the body parts. All my experiences to make a 210 average, she could emulate. It was most satisfying. So, today, last week, we observed her scores. Her ability to pick up spares. Strikes. I was a strike queen. She is beginning to take after me. Regrettably she has hurt her two fingers. She cannot lift up the ball with her two fingers like I did and fling it up and catch it with both hands. This would be impossible for her. She misused her two fingers too long. But her thumb and wrist is fine. She is not using a guard so she can freely use her wrist as well. She is able to hit the target as I simplified the game. Made only two moves of the body so it’s easy to be consistent. The power is in the right angle. She cannot use it fully as yet but it will come. I am good at explaining and she is good at doing what I ask her to do. She nearly bowled a 150 average today for six games. She said she had a 130 average when we started. She is looking good and she has got a good shot but she is still backing up. Just noticed her hand is at the top of the shot so she needs to kneel to get it at the back, bottom. Having fun here. Summer is upon us. The flowers are blooming and life is a blast. Happiness and joy fills our lives all around us and in us and there is a deep deep peace that can only be found in Christ and HIM alone.

Song Of Solomon 2
1I am a rose of Sharon,
a lily of the valleys.
 
He
2As a lily among brambles,
so is my love among the young women.
 
She
3As an apple tree among the trees of the forest,
so is my beloved among the young men.
With great delight I sat in his shadow,
and his fruit was sweet to my taste.
4He brought me to the banqueting house,b
and his banner over me was love.
5Sustain me with raisins;
refresh me with apples,
for I am sick with love.
6His left hand is under my head,
and his right hand embraces me!
7I adjure you,c O daughters of Jerusalem,
by the gazelles or the does of the field,
that you not stir up or awaken love
until it pleases.
 
The Bride Adores Her Beloved
 
8The voice of my beloved!
Behold, he comes,
leaping over the mountains,
bounding over the hills.
9My beloved is like a gazelle
or a young stag.
Behold, there he stands
behind our wall,
gazing through the windows,
looking through the lattice.
10My beloved speaks and says to me:
“Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
and come away,
11for behold, the winter is past;
the rain is over and gone.
12The flowers appear on the earth,
the time of singingd has come,
and the voice of the turtledove
is heard in our land.
13The fig tree ripens its figs,
and the vines are in blossom;
they give forth fragrance.
Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
and come away.
14O my dove, in the clefts of the rock,
in the crannies of the cliff,
let me see your face,
let me hear your voice,
for your voice is sweet,
and your face is lovely.
15Catch the foxese for us,
the little foxes
that spoil the vineyards,
for our vineyards are in blossom.”
 
16My beloved is mine, and I am his;
he grazesf among the lilies.
17Until the day breathes
and the shadows flee,
turn, my beloved, be like a gazelle
or a young stag on cleft mountains.

Today my daughters were wonderful in worship. I focused the eyes of my heart on Christ and Christ alone. 

1 John 3:2 (ESV)

2 Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears[a] we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.

Today’s sermon was on love when Jesus asked Peter if he loved Him, three times and all three times, Peter loved Him in a brotherly love. 
Love is a very hard one all my life as people tell me their stories. 
Once a thirty year old lady told me she was raped by her brother when she was twelve but her mother never knew. She asked me what to do. I told her to tell her mother as this lady was suffering the hurt that her mother loved her brother but he showed her how he loved her by raping her. They were both teens. Another time, I was not in a study as they were dealing with battered wives. A place of pain and suffering. Then once a teen wanted to jump off the building cos his father beat up his mother. And asked his mum to jump with him.
Y’all should know Bon Jovi’s, ‘You Give Love A Bad Name’.
All in the name of love.
He was hurt as well.
I have honestly not felt this kind of suffering and pain except for my first husband’s infidelity. But I soon got over it. He did sit me down once to tell me how useless I was and after that I told him I was not listening to his rubbish as he wronged me, I did not do it ever to him.
We have children who cry as one parent loves one more than the other, they feel and then the mother comes up and says but she bought her all the lovely dresses and then passed it on to her younger sister. Is this not love?
And the story goes on and on and on.
I do not think Peter ever loved Jesus the same way Jesus loves him as Peter was still in the flesh.
We know of those who in love rape kids. It happened to my friend and she got gonorrhea. At twelve. She was never the same person, she said.
We hear of worse things happen to people in this world.
All in the name of love.
Love does not hurt others.
It loves.
The same like ‘bara’ in Genesis can only be done by a divine God, the same with the love of God.
If by any chance you go through the love chapter and do everything in it. Think not right.
We are still living in the flesh and fall short of the glory of the LORD.
We are complete when we see Jesus face to face.
I spoke to my grandsons on this thing called love that I would never do anything that would hurt them. Touch them in any inappropriate way. Nor should they allow others to do so. We helped with our grandsons for years as they lived with us and we guarded them with our lives. They know this. We talked about it. Teach them what is right love and what is fake love.
The poor young lady who screamed the other week in our service about fake love. She had obviously been through a lot about love. Love was her issue.
Boundaries.
Did you do the bible study on boundaries?
I get the repeat from my teachers when others fail to live under boundaries.
Keep a hold of your boundaries. Guard your heart for out of it flow the springs of life.
I love and get hit. I need to guard my heart.
This journey is real tough at times.
Real people with real issues.
I have to say none of the above happened to me. My life was guarded. Except when my husband shot me down as I was not a business woman. I never listened to him again as he was an infidel.
Life is tough but honestly, life is exceptionally good for me.
Jesus loves me, this I know, in a humongous way.
Boundaries please or I will be told off by my teacher for not guarding my heart.
