There is a stillness in the air.

I found my deep sense of truth when I settled in a sleepy valley; I walked the ridges, hills, which bring a swift chill on a spring morning as you walk. Spending time here on my own, I held onto so many questions, I’ve needed answers for so many years. Interestingly while I know it would be beneficial to have answers, I didn’t know how hard it would be to reflect on the answers.

There is something about wandering, the trails of a sleepy valley, it brings out the joy, the spirit of God flows in my heart when I walk. There is a stillness that makes me delve into a deeper level of conversation with God. There is nothing between me and God to disturb our conversation, no outside influences. Just me, the fresh air how great the feeling.

Life becomes so much clearer as I walk; constant chatter from white noise disappears. It’s just me being me; no mask is needed as I walk. It just you or me walking, it can be challenging. During good and bad days, when I’m down walking is hard.

A liberating as walking is, there is always work to do. I see a path as I walk, I wonder where it will lead or if I was meant to travel this path. So many things I let go of as I walk. Disappointments, achievements, yet I create my life. Sometimes opportunities I see for a quick moment, God’s vision for me.

Now as each day rolls into one sometimes, I realise it’s the way life has always been. There’s no more to add or anything else to take away, or to place in a box closing the lid and forgetting that part of life happened. As hard as it is to let go of annoying habits, that have haunted me for many years. Today there are still possibilities. Now life is revealed, and everything has a clear intention.

Many things will change for me over the next few months and into the New Year. I have discovered a new world with God. I know I’m not done yet, there is so much more life ahead of me, I’ve had a taste of life and new experiences

Many things are going to change over this year. Last year with all of my traveling represented a opportunity for discovering the world. I know I’m not done yet but I’ve had a great taste of what that experience is like. My world has changed.

Strength and determination

Strength and determination
As uncertain as destiny
Gathers in our mind
Lightening moments, bolt, shock, stimulate
Frivolous in flight, strength and determination
With my head held hight
Determination gives strength
From soul to soul, across my world
As a birds wings flutter
And the thoughts we utter
As forests touch the wind
Wings flutter, across my world

Dreams galore gather
Clouding my vision
At times bitter thoughts have power
To hide gnawing, corroding, my mind
Destroying the brightest light
Think love in determination
There’s hope in strength anew
Dreaded thoughts, give determination
The right to succeed
Renovating a blessed life
With the sword of faith held high

(C)bjsscribbles

Renovating your heart, Renovating your thoughts

Thoughts how they gather
Words are thoughts
Gathered in our mind
They don’t need wings
To fly
Lightening bolt moments
That gather, from soul to soul
As a birds wings flutter

 

A bitter thought has the power to hide
Gnawing at your heart, hiding
It still has the power to corrode
Destroying your mind

If we think love
There is times when we don’t
Yet we can encourage love
Lighting the world
Renovating your heart
Renovating your thoughts

Matthew 12:25 Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.

Exodus 28:3 You shall speak to all who are wise-hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they make Aaron’s garments to sanctify him, that he may minister to me in the priest’s office.

Ephesians 6-10-18

 

 

Don’t be afraid, Don’t be threatened, peace is about
Be strong in faith
With the Helmet of God, there is strength in Salvation
Salvation in the mind protected by God
The mighty power of the hemet of salvation
Against the rulers that once controlled our mind
Binding the powers of the dark world
So that when the day of evil comes, you can stand your ground
Stand firm now with the breast plate of righteousness in God’s sprit, the belt of truth
Tucked around your waist, stand firm in righteousness and truth
Extinguish evil from your mind, free yourself to be alive
Lets mend the broken spirit with the sword of the spirit
There is a mystery of feelings that God can hear
Only he knows, Pray in the spirit, only God can give you salvation
God has heard so many stories, be alert, that when ever God speaks his words
The mystery of God’s world evolves, Your feet are now comfortable in readiness for all that comes in peace.

Ephesians 6:10-18King James Version (KJV)

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

In pursuit of life

When nothing goes to plan along the pathway to peace
When we think of the pathway to success
life  never comes in a straight path
It arrives, but it’s all over the place
Advance and retreat, Advance and retreat
So many times
That’s how it is for everyone
Two steps forward, two steps backward
I’ve talked about mistakes
Learning from mistakes
When life goes array
Time and time again
Trying, keep moving forward
In pursuit of goals

There was a time
When I sat still
Huddled in a corner
I thought about success
Going about life, in a blurr

Now pursuing life
Your part of life
I feel life each day

When we know where we are going
We will get there, I know I will
I know I’ve paid a price
Nothing has come easy
And it still doesn’t

Pursuing life
Paying the price
Rewards are coming my way
Dreams are being fulfilled

Walk on through

When you walk
Through a storm
Beneath the heaves of storm
Hold your head high
Through the darkness of the storm
Do not be afraid
Walk on through
There is an end to the storm
A golden sky
The sweet sounds of birds
Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Carry your dreams, though they may be
Tossed about, in the storm of life
Walking through the storm carry your hopes in your heart
You’ll never walk alone, God is always at your side
You’ll never walk alone, God is always at your side

(c)bjsscribbles

I feel the wind but the tears

Minutes of uncertainty
The many chilly hours
I desire the warmth
Of your mind
I feel the wind
Your all around me chilly
I take your hand feeling you circle me
And try to catch the wind again
I hide behind your smile at sunset
Day fades into night
Everywhere I look
I try to find you
The sweetest sounds of desire
Would make me sing
I feel the wind but the tears
As the rain comes wiping tears
Behind the walls of the wind
Standing by your heart
Longing to catch the wind
I try to find you

Passenger of life

When we are searching
Looking for direction
Let your heart guide you
Our dreams fall apart
Broken to dust
Times when we have troubles
Trusting, as long as life endures

Let the signs remind us
We are passengers of life
Let the signs remind us
Let go, surrender
I was once lost

Faith had died
There was no spark
The lights had gone out
Courage can fail you
When all the hope of life runs dry
When the flesh and heart fail

Let the signs remind us
We are passengers of life
Let the signs remind us
Let go, surrender
I was once lost

We’ve been here so long
Following the bright shinning sun
Find comfort in God’s promises
Find inner peace, the hunger doesn’t cease.

Thinking about life

Lately I’ve had to do a great deal of thinking about my life, putting parts of life in boxes, sticking them away, or closing the book.  Some people i n life just don’t understand what you do, to start a new life, rebuilding. A lot here do and some special bloggers understand. This is part of what I have been doing this year.

 

 

There is a saying, “You didn’t walk in my shoes”
Our steps are our and ours alone

Many things in my life have changed
It’s been a lifetime, that I’ve cleansed away
Can you imagine, the heart break?
There are many I know who can
The heartbreaking moments
You move through
There are many moments
You think it is impossible to get through

Reflection, just on the past year
The healing of the mind
I’ve made mistakes in my life
Many of them I might add
I’ve covered some important aspects of my life
Moments not shared with anyone else
Closing that book was hard.

I am not perfect now
I never will be
But I still have morals
That brings out the best in me

I’ve thought a lot about my life
What it has really meant to me
So now when I make a mistake
It doesn’t wrench at my heart
I have feelings, my heart has softened

I’ve had moments lately
Where feelings, are hurt
I can move through

I’ve thought about my life
And what people will say about me
My walk in later life
My steps in making a new life
Have taken courage
Strength, honesty, and joy
There have been many shaky moments
That many have understood
But most of the time, people see me

Staying in the moment, staying present
Feelings, thoughts, truth, faith
Are with me, carrying me through
Life goes at a slower pace now
I listen to my heart
That’s made me change
Starting over in life, is fun
Because now it what I see in life
Not what has gone before
There are some that see my changes
As me
But now they are my changes
I changed my vision of life
To become me and all that I am now
Life is just beginning

Peace and Hope

Lately I’ve been wondering, “Why?” I’m exhausted in the last 6 years I’ve done a great deal. I’ve done a complete turn around in my life. Resettled built a home, not literally moved into a small home. God replaced all the things I lost tenfold. I did  not realise how exhausting life can be renewing your life. There has been so much I gathered in 6yrs, so much life.

 

A jolt of energy has happened today
Energy to write, I’ve struggled lately
My sleep takes me on a journey
Something inside me shifts into place
The old ways of life and “being” seem to shed off me
The weight is lighter on my shoulders
I’m floating, today
“I’ve changed
All that I know and known to be true”
The path I’m traveling, I’m not to blame

 

The good and the bad, everything and I mean everything
Are all part of my life, I don’t know why things happened
Or what is going to happen, there’s
Just knowing someone is there
Looking after me, no matter what
God is there

Habits and ways well lived for a long time
Have ways of showing up at inopportune times
Holding you from moving forward
There are times when I’m stuck
Struggling to move forward
I’ve been leaping forward then
I crash in exhaustion

Life takes me on a ride
Full of ups and downs
Life keeps moving
Far beyond my reach
I don’t have much option
It’s life

I have a say in the path I take
Carry within my heart what it knows to be true
Honour the whispers that linger
In my soul
They will carry me on my path
to success

I’ve been continually letting go
I’ve struggled, but I had to let go
Parts of me that are well worn
I don’t need them anymore
From time to time they rise
I have the ability to live above them
I know I can do it

There is the journey of life to take now
The piers where my life stood before
Have been wipe clean

There’s a new day rising
There is only forward now

Peace and Hope
Romans
5. 1 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we[a] have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we[b] boast in the hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only so, but we[c] also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us..

Praise to God for a Living Hope
1 Peter 3-5
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, 5 who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.
