The battle belongs to you, my God of Peace and Lord
In your love I rest, not in the might of flashing sword
Safe from the trial of distressful battle, my fears depart
Your embrace heals, consoles, all of my wounded heart
You are my strength, comfort, help, and shield
The battle won by trust in your love, as I yield
I rest in you, enjoying the comfort of your breast
Letting all my fears and anxiety go, while I rest
My confidence is in you for victory is sure
You give me vision and provision is assured
The guarantee in you comes in tranquil trust
No need for me to run, fret or frantically rush
You make me peaceful, comforted, whole and complete
Broken places healed, I’m soothed, filled full and replete
You are my rest, restoration, refreshment and health
My prosperity comes by faith and…

It’s strange how certain activities trigger memories that unlock a world I have yet to understand. Physical actions gently push my mind, nudging my world closer to the words that I struggle to comprehend. Words that need to find a place in my heart. Require a practical understanding so I can relate to them in my own way. So I can learn to pronounce, remember and recognise them. To understand what they mean to me and others. I need that word to become visual almost tactile to revival something of it’s self to me. It’s a slow often frustrating way of learning. Taking time with just one word, allowing it to guide me in practical way.
The word Koinonia came into my life this week. I must have heard it before but for some reason I locked onto the word and tried to unpick what it means to me.

There are many doctrines that interpret the Bible to authenticate their belief structures. Therefore, there are different beliefs about spiritual welfare and anointing yourself, your family and your home. I believe God gave us the authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions. Luke wrote in 10:19,
“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
We have the authority to overcome our enemies.
Paul wrote in Ephesians 6:12,
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
Paul clearly stated that there are rulers of darkness that fight to keep us in darkness, harms way, and confusion.
David wrote in Psalm 34:7,
“The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him…

(Philippians 4:13 AMP- I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency.)
When we’re feeling troubled, weak, and torn or let down our first thought or initial assessment is usually not that we’re positioned in a place of eternal strength. In all honesty, our initial response emotionally is usually a sense of brokenness, hopelessness, and despair. But The Word of God says, when we’re at our lowest and weakest point, that’s when we’re able to truly experience the perfection that is His grace; that’s when we’re able too see the strength and glory of Christ come to fruition in it’s greatest form within our lives. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10 NOG- But He told me: “My kindness is all you need. My power is strongest when you…

“Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace: Acts 18:9”
Apostle Paul,in his ministry on Earth, came to a crossroads, where he had to decide whether or not to stop preaching the gospel because of fear. Jesus Christ appeared to him in a vision and allayed his fears; He asked Paul to speak boldly and not stop for any reason. Dear beloved, it is possible that you have also come to a crossroads where you want to stop doing what God has assigned to you. Take encouragement from the opening scripture, and do your assigned task boldly. Don’t stop for any reason and lose your reward. You might be thinking that there is no use for you because of your condition or your circumstances. I have good news for you: There is no useless person in…

This letter is for you. You that is deeply hurt, you that have been loved less by those you expected to love you the most. You that have been let down by your family. You that was gracefully broken at a time you had no control over your emotions. You that have been a victim of real love but in bad timing. You that have received more rejections than acceptances. You that have received more rejections because of your address than your age and weight combined, this letter is for you.

Before you do anything, commit yourself to the Lord and trust completely in Him. Then your thinking conforms to God’s thinking. As a result, what you do will succeed.
Before you do anything,
put your trust totally in God and not in yourself.
Then every plan you make will succeed. (Proverbs 16:3 TPT)

Every so often I wonder if maybe this blog has run its course and, as with all good things, that maybe the time has come for its end. Maybe I should end this one and start another one. Maybe I should stop blogging and write books… maybe an online magazine… or maybe I should stop writing and take up golf.
Oh, maybe not golf; you probably need to be able to see to do that.
I want a YouTube Channel!
Of course, I’d need to learn video editing and… you probably need to see for that too.
I go through this every year around this time; is it a case of “spring fever”? Nah, maybe more like cabin fever; we still have snow multiple times each week! Whatever it is, it’s irritating. Yet I fear this blog is a bit one dimensional because I’m always going through books of the…
