|Isaiah 43:18||“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.|
|43:19||See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.|
|43:20||The wild animals honor me, the jackals and the owls, because I provide water in the desert and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen,|
|43:21||the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise|
Proverbs 30:5 “Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
Surrender your life, your marriage, your family your all to the Lord. Behold, He is doing a new thing this season. Can’t you perceive it? How long must we suffer and and live a life below what was fashioned for us? Cant we just surrender and see the glory of the Lord manifested?
Knowing and understanding Gods word and his laws. What does God expect of us? We can only find out if we walk with Him closely. Reading and meditating upon his word. Living in obedience and reverence to God Almighty.
May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope, Lord, is in you. Psalm 25:21
Teach me, Lord, the way of your decrees that i may follow it to the end. Give me inderstanding,so that i may keep your laws and obey it with all my heart. Direct me in the path of your commands, for there i find delight. Turn my heart towards your statutes and not toward my selfish gain. Psalm 114:34-36
The Lord gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things, He knows what lies in the darkness, and light dwells in Him. Daniel 2:21
The Lord confides in those…

Amazing how Joseph landed in jail with favour. The LORD was with him and showed him kindness and favour in the eyes of the prison warden.
The LORD’s love is unequalled. That Joseph was made in-charge of all those held in prison means that he did the duties of the warden himself yet in the eyes of the people, he was just a prisoner like the rest. To God he was different, he was a truly noble servant, a vessel of honour. The prison warden saw this in Joseph.
Interestingly the warden had rest as it is written that he paid no attention to anything under Joseph’s care, because the LORD was with Joseph and gave him success in whatever he did. Joseph did not lie in self pity, anger or murmuring, he blossomed and worked diligently and excellently. He did the warden’s job perfectly well that the warden did not have to supervise him further.
It’s a true challenge to us. Right from the holiness in Joseph’s life that he did not even explain to the master what transpired to exonerate himself; to the diligence of serving the warden amidst that pain.
May the LORD give us success wherever we are and even in our marriages. Joseph could not defile himself nor his master’s bed. He respected the marriage bed of his master and his body as the temple of God. And the bible says that the LORD gave him success. God was pleased. He was with him all the way.
May we conduct our lives in ways that are pleasing to our heavenly Father.

You had to be the one to walk me down the aisle.Not only that, you had walked down that same aisle a few months before, alone, not for the vows, no, but for a divine reason. To request for an altar call.
See, I was ready to give my life to Christ and the service was just about concluding, but there was no altar call. You walked down the aisle for the altar call, and shortly after, I walked down that aisle and came back a changed soul, a forgiven lady, cleansed. Loved.
You loved me and told me of the saving grace of Jesus Christ. You cared enough to have my future secured.
And now, we get to do life together. Been over a decade now and I testify of the LORD’S faithfulness.
My destiny was tied to yours…..Let’s walk on in the faith. Happy Father’s Day love.

I woke up and suddenly was out of your arms…..The time to fly had come. I don’t know how long it took but I know you loved me and still do.
I took the road to search for my destiny. Tripping, falling and rising up, I knew I had to make it. So when the sun rose this morning, I couldnt help but smile. It’s been decades now, and all I know is that I got direction.
I held onto the first love that I knew, I embraced the Lord’s love. And now dad, I look back and thank you, for the love, care and ensuring I went to church. For how else would I have embraced Him?He holds my hand and leads me to my future. He loves me.
I met the Lord, He opened his hands and embraced me. He took me as his own and He truly loves me. He cares for me. He found me at a point of crossroads, when life did not make much sense, when nothing mattered much, when all there was, was a void, he filled the void and the emptiness disappeared. He took me in. He loves me and I love Him. He is my Father.
Thank you dad for doing your best to show me what the world was like, for the sacrifices, for the direction. Love from your daughter Margaret.

Genesis18:17 Then the LORD said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do?18:18Abraham will surely become a great and powerful nation, and all nations on earth will be blessed through him.18:19For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just, so that the LORD will bring about for Abraham what he has promised him.”
This quote of the scripture struck me this morning. The LORD wondering if it was right to hide what He was about to do from Abraham. Yet Abraham was mortal, a man. Abraham had not yet become a great and powerful nation but the LORD knew that he surely would. He knows the plans He has for us, plans for our welfare and not for our destruction. Jer 29:11. God had promised and it was surely going to pass.
Amazing that Abraham was chosen to direct not only his children but his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is just for the promise to be brought about. The call is for me and you to direct and guide our children and households to know the LORD. It is my duty and may God help me in this even as He helps you too!!!

Psalms 143:8 Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you.
Today I look forward to this word of love from my heavenly Father for He is faithful. I trust that you will also receive the blessing you have been waiting for. Goodmorning. Maggie Njenga copyright 2020.
Am not deterred and I look back no longer.
Am forging forward, holding on preciously to the lessons learnt. Whatever comes, I dare not stop again, I dare not wait for the normal to be back.
For my eyes have been opened, awakened to the reality. This is it and this is the new normal. I am alive, in the world at such a time and so I got to walk through it.
This is my life now. New hope awaits, new paths, new ways of life. Not many have ventured through this path before me but I know who I am and I know whose I am. Am pursuing my next.
My dreams did not include this terrain, and surely the tunnel may not be all clear, but that is okay, I only need enough light to take the next step. When COVID-19 makes its exit, I will not regret the days, I will be in my new normal and that is where I want to be.
Am in my little world and am overcoming the pandemic. COVID-19 will not dictate my life. I know whose I am.
