Muthoni is Home!!!!!

Psalms 98:4 : Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music

Psalms 95: 1: Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.

After 22 months in captivity in Somalia, my friend Muthoni is back home! There are no words to describe how this makes me feel. Words are so inadequate!! I jumped all over my house when I heard the good news on Thursday last week!!! Read her story here Captives Set Free!!

I want to shout this LOUD, GOD YOU ARE GLORIOUS!!!

We prayed, people, we really prayed...each day of the 22 months...we prayed, we pleaded, we cried, we held hands, we sat in silence, some day in fear....some days we were angry...and cursed them damn pirates (forgive us Lord), but one thing we did not lose was HOPE. GOD kept our HOPE alive. He daily let us know that IT WAS WELL with her...HE was incharge and we trusted HIM. HE, to whom all power belongs, we TRUSTED and HE did not disappoint. HE DELIVERED HER HOME UNHARMED. I mean, the girl is fine by all measures! Her mind is alert, she is on both heels and her smile and faith in GOD - priceless?!!! GOD YOU ARE GLORIOUS!!!!

Today I put off the candle I lite on my blog with a strong blow!! and instead celebrate GOD...because...yes again, GOD YOU ARE GLORIOUS!!!! Good people - TRUST FIRMLY IN GOD, HE IS A SURE REFUGE!

THANK YOU so so much dear God. To Muthoni - we love you so much, so so much, so so so much! Welcome Back!!!!!!!!!! we pray for speedy healing and restoration.

This is what I sing, GOD to you.....! YOU ARE GLORIOUS!!!! and I sing very loudly in spite of my vocals ;-)

Sign of Your Goodness.

Came to God, seeking His assurance that he has me in mind as I go through some rough life terrain and the word He put in my heart below put me to rest. 

 Thank You Lord.
 
Psalm 86

A prayer of David.

Hear me, Lord, and answer me,
    for I am poor and needy.
Guard my life, for I am faithful to you;
    save your servant who trusts in you.
You are my God; have mercy on me, Lord,
    for I call to you all day long.
Bring joy to your servant, Lord,
    for I put my trust in you.

You, Lord, are forgiving and good,
    abounding in love to all who call to you.
Hear my prayer, Lord;
    listen to my cry for mercy.
When I am in distress, I call to you,
    because you answer me.

Among the gods there is none like you, Lord;
    no deeds can compare with yours.
All the nations you have made
    will come and worship before you, Lord;
    they will bring glory to your name.
10 For you are great and do marvelous deeds;
    you alone are God.

11 Teach me your way, Lord,
    that I may rely on your faithfulness;
give me an undivided heart,
    that I may fear your name.
12 I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart;
    I will glorify your name forever.
13 For great is your love toward me;
    you have delivered me from the depths,
    from the realm of the dead.

14 Arrogant foes are attacking me, O God;
    ruthless people are trying to kill me—
    they have no regard for you.
15 But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God,
    slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.
16 Turn to me and have mercy on me;
    show your strength in behalf of your servant;
save me, because I serve you
    just as my mother did.
17 Give me a sign of your goodness,
    that my enemies may see it and be put to shame,
    for you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.

Word for 2014


 This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says:
“In repentance and rest is your salvation,
    in quietness and trust is your strength,
Isaiah 30:15 

And David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters; but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.And David said to Abiathar the priest, Ahimelech’s son, “I pray thee, bring me hither the ephod.” And Abiathar brought thither the ephod to David.And David inquired of the Lord, saying, “Shall I pursue after this troop? Shall I overtake them?” And He answered him, “Pursue, for thou shalt surely overtake them and without fail recover all.” 1 Samuel 30 : 6-8

Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”
Luke 1:45

Appreciation for 2013

Another year gone, another blessing to count.

I am grateful to God, He has been ever present!

The verse I held to in 2013 was;

Psalms 92:10

 You have made me as strong as a wild ox;
    you have blessed me with happiness.

and the Lord did give me ox - like strength and lots of happiness in 2013;

  1.  I quit my job and He was my sufficient provider for the months I was out and indeed to the end of the year after I got a new job. The strength to walk away from my old job and strength to persevere in my new job can only be described as Ox strength and that, from God.
  2. I got married and that, at a time, when I was jobless and low on finance. God gathered my family and friends and gave us a wonderful simple wedding - my heart's desire sort of wedding and that, also took Ox strength from God.
  3. Its been 6 months of marriage, wonderful six months and that, truly has been a blessing of happiness. My husband, my family, my in-laws, all reflect your kind love for me....and am truly, so very happy and grateful for the gift of happiness.
  4. Good Health - am happy, Lord, that you have kept all my family and friends in good health. Some have been ill in the year, but you have healed and continue to heal....that's happiness.
  5. Sermons at church have been so timely each Sunday, God, you have fed me with the juiciest of soul foods these year...some swallowed easily...others required lots of chew...all in all....really good spiritual food, am real grateful.
  6. My bible study group, my sister, my friends, my family - Lord, you have brought me much joy by your faithfulness in their lives. Thank you.
  7. And finally, for my friend Muthoni, she remains in captivity, I had hoped the year would not end, that you would deliver her and bring her home....Lord, I bow to your will and timing....though it has not happened, I thank you for strength to pray for her daily, faith to believe that you fend for her needs daily, strength not to give up. I thank you for the happiness we experience, each time we receive news that she is ok.....and for the assurance in my heart, that, IT IS WELL WITH HER.
The year has been good, strength for trials and hard times....happiness for joyful and easy times.

I bow to you, God, YOU have been true to your word and fulfilled it.

I worship you now and always.

I can’t get enough of you!

God—you’re my God!
    I can’t get enough of you!
I’ve worked up such hunger and thirst for God,
    traveling across dry and weary deserts.

2-4 So here I am in the place of worship, eyes open,
    drinking in your strength and glory.
In your generous love I am really living at last!
    My lips brim praises like fountains.
I bless you every time I take a breath;
    My arms wave like banners of praise to you.
5-8 I eat my fill of prime rib and gravy;
    I smack my lips. It’s time to shout praises!
If I’m sleepless at midnight,
    I spend the hours in grateful reflection.
Because you’ve always stood up for me,
    I’m free to run and play.
I hold on to you for dear life,
    and you hold me steady as a post.
9-11 Those who are out to get me are marked for doom,
    marked for death, bound for hell.
They’ll die violent deaths;
    jackals will tear them limb from limb.
But the king is glad in God;
    his true friends spread the joy,
While small-minded gossips
    are gagged for good.

Psalms 63 (Message Bible)

Am I rich?

17 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. 18 Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. 19 In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.

1 Timothy 6 :17-19
