The Parallel and Paradox … ( by Fenny West)

The Parallel and Paradox of the Wooden Art

How incredible insightful and instructive!

The Wood artist sees what we do not see
And painstakingly uses his tool to chip off, cut out, carve out, garnish until the beautiful masterpiece emerges out of the wood to our amazement, admiration and wonder.
This is exactly what God sees in you and I. We may look useless on the outside but there is masterpiece waiting to find expression in us.
And as we yield to the Holy Spirit and the Word of God does His miracle of transformation by chipping off, carving out, garnishing, polishing until the masterpiece which was there, emerges for all to see, admire and glorify God for.
Today, yield to the Holy Spirit to work in you as to work through you. See yourself as a masterpiece awaiting manifestation. Yes, often the pruning can be painful, but see the joy ahead, like Jesus and submit yourself to the Master Crafts-Man Who knows your end from the beginning.

: For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of the sons of God.  Ro8:19
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Eph2:10
John15:1} I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. {15:2} Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every [branch] that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. {15:3} John15:1-3

1John{3:1} Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. {3:2} Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

How Loving and Caring (by Fenny West)

How Loving, How Caring! 

“I heard Him say, “Go there and speak” 
But I ran away, boarded a ship
Like the Titanic, I was bold.
I was wise in my way, in my eyes. 
Unbeknown to me, I leaked and was weak. 
I had betrayed myself, my soul sold. 

And down I went, drowning 
to a point of no return. 
Then I remembered my fault 
And cried out to Him. 
In the depths I raised a hymn of praise, 
I worshipped my Maker for His mercy, 
His wisdom, power, sovereignty. 
Like Paul and Silas, I was not silenced, 
Even in the rain, pain and grave. 

He was moved, quickly forgave
Commanded an earthquake 
To wash me ashore. 
And there I was, 
Even with a pillow 
Under my head. 
How loving, how caring!

Let Him grow More ( by Fenny West)

Let Him

grow more

As you grow less

When you confess.

Let Him increase

Fill to the brim

As you decrease

Brimming with Him.

Bow down to Him

In all your dreams

Yield for a yield

Vast in the field.


Proverbs 15

33 The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom, And before honor is humility.

roverbs 18

12 Before destruction the heart of a man is haughty, And before honor is humility.

Proverbs 22

4 By humility and the fear of the LORD Are riches and honor and life.

Today, There is Melody   
there is melody in my heart, today

What looked so impossible
The Lord made it possible.
(Today, today, there is melody in my heart, today.)

That which was a big trial
Has become a big triumph.
(Today, there is melody in my hear, today.)

He’s turned my opposition,
Into a big promotion.

That which was a big barrier,
Has become a big blessing.

With joy He has filled my heart
So I will praise Him from my heart.

Into my life He brought Praise
So today His praise I raise.

O give thanks unto the Lord
For His mercies forever endures.

He’s a faithful God,
Powerful God,
Merciful God,

 O give thanks to the Lord

We are not counted among the dead

He still gives us our daily bread

He guides us to His desired haven

He has promised us heaven


O give thanks to the Lord

He healed us of all our diseases

Made a way for us the crises

Shielded us from the scourge of the tongue

And turns for our good every wrong.

O give thanks to the Lord

Who forgives us all our sins

And lifts us from diabolical bins

Who crowns us with love

As those born from above


O give thanks to the Lord

Who made us His righteousness

Cleansing us from all unrighteousness

Granting us His loving-kindness

Covering all our nakedness


O give thanks to the Lord

Who ended our blindness

Helps us in all our weakness

Who leads us to green pastures

And holds in His hands our futures


O give thanks to the Lord

Who grants us compassion

And gives us protection

Who renews our youth like the eagle’s

Enables us to leap over hurdles.


O give thanks to the Lord

Who makes our crooked paths straight

And makes Himself our strength

Giving us a higher playing field

And becoming our Bulwark and Shield.









11   You crown the year with Your goodness,

        And Your paths drip with abundance. Ps65:11

1     Bless the LORD, O my soul;

     And all that is within me, bless His holy name!

2     Bless the LORD, O my soul,

     And forget not all His benefits:

3     Who forgives all your iniquities,

     Who heals all your diseases,

4     Who redeems your life from destruction,

     Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,

5     Who satisfies your mouth with good things,

     So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.


1     Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good!

     For His mercy endures forever.

2     Let the redeemed of the LORD say so,

     Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy,

3     And gathered out of the lands,

     From the east and from the west,

     From the north and from the south.


1     I will bless the LORD at all times;

     His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

2     My soul shall make its boast in the LORD;

     The humble shall hear of it and be glad.

3     Oh, magnify the LORD with me,

     And let us exalt His name together.

4     I sought the LORD, and He heard me,

     And delivered me from all my fears.

5     They looked to Him and were radiant,

     And their faces were not ashamed.


1     Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good!

       For His mercy endures forever.

2     Oh, give thanks to the God of gods!

       For His mercy endures forever.

3     Oh, give thanks to the Lord of lords!

       For His mercy endures forever:

4     To Him who alone does great wonders,

       For His mercy endures forever;

5     To Him who by wisdom made the heavens,

       For His mercy endures forever;

6     To Him who laid out the earth above the waters,

       For His mercy endures forever;

       For His mercy endures forever —

8     The sun to rule by day,

       For His mercy endures forever;

9     The moon and stars to rule by night,

       For His mercy endures forever.


4     Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,

     And into His courts with praise.

     Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.

Sad Saturday? No! ( by Fenny West)

I did this for you jesus btwen two criminals 


Sad Saturday?

No, it was Good Friday, the day before. So it is Good Saturday.

It pleased the Father to bruise Him to reconcile man to God. Because of Good Friday, Jesus paved the way with His blood.



10          Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him;

           He has put Him to grief.Isa53:10

When You make His soul an offering for sin,

           He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days,

           And the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand.

11          He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied.

           By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many,

           For He shall bear their iniquities.



We now have access to the Father.

We have been purchased with a great price.1Pet1:18-19

As many as received Him He gave the authority to be children of God.

We are now heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ. We have now been delivered from the powers of darkness. We have been translated from the kingdom of darkness and brought into the His marvellous light- the Kingdom of God. Heaven is now our home.( John1:12, John3:16, Col1:12-13,Rom8:1-2. Ro5:1,

20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ(Phil3:20)

What they thought was His demise was His advantage. He replicated Himself in us. He made us the light of the world; City on a hill, Salt of the earth. They now have to contend with many Christ-like people.

Those demon spirits who were in great glee: ‘We got Him, We got Him!’ had a rude awakening when the righteous demands of a just God were satisfied; when Jesus took His blood to the mercy seat and it was accepted.

Psalm 16:10-11 was fulfilled

10      For You will not leave my soul in Sheol,

       Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.

11      You will show me the path of life;

       In Your presence is fullness of joy;

       At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.


They had crucified an innocent Man and spilled holy blood.

You take Him and crucify Him, for I find no fault in Him.”John19:6


 Because of ‘It is Finished!,’ the Father had to raise Jesus from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit. And Just as Jesus commanded Lazarus: ‘Lazarus come forth!’, the Father commanded, ‘Jesus, Come forth!’

And Jesus came forth!

He went to Hades to release captives; led captivity captive.  He went to Hades and released all the saints Of old: Abraham, Isaac Jacob, the prophets etc etc  and marched them out.


Jesus took the keys that the first Adam had given to Satan, disarmed principalities and powers and made a public spectacle of them. As He was going into Hades, there was a shout: 7            Lift up your heads, O you gates!

       And be lifted up, you everlasting doors!

       And the King of glory shall come in.

8        Who is this King of glory?

       The LORD strong and mighty,

       The LORD mighty in battle.

9        Lift up your heads, O you gates!

       Lift up, you everlasting doors!

       And the King of glory shall come in.

10      Who is this King of glory?

       The LORD of hosts,

            He is the King of glory. Sela

Jesus led a victory parade. He rose on the third day.

Yes, on the day of the resurrection, the sun rose and there was an earthquake and people who died came back to life.

51      Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split,52 and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised;53 and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.Matt27:51-53



On Sunday, the first day of the week, as the sun rose, the Son rose. The stone was rolled away and Jesus came forth.

So Saturday was not a Sad Saturday after all because  Good Friday had come and Sunday was on the horizon. Alleluia!


Exhortation songs as you await the resurrection of your dream that has died or is dying or our vision that has vanished.

When your dream is shattered before your very eyes, Remember that all things are possible to those who believe and with God all things are possible. Do not despair. Dead dreams can live and shall live. Only believe.

All things are Possible ( Live video)


All things are possible, To those who believe. I have prayed the word, And I will receive. The word of God is so sure- Settled in heaven. It will accomplish  That which pleases Him. CH:I believe ( I believe) and I will see. I believe (Yes! I believe) and I will receive. I believe (I believe) and I speak. My confession will bring a manifestation. If God says, ‘Yes!’, (tell me) Who can say, ‘No’ By two unchangeable things  (His word and oath) it’s impossible for God to lie. His promises are Yes and Amen  In Christ Jesus The word gone forth from His mouth,  Will not return to Him empty

Seek Him Dearly and Daily ( by C.H. Spurgeon)

Seek Him Dearly and Daily

all things are urs1 gooing after goods instead of God go after God ecard favour walk seeking Him

“I sought him, but I found him not.” Song of Solomon 3:1

Tell me where you lost the company of Christ, and I will tell you the most likely place to find him. Have you lost Christ in the closet by restraining prayer? Then it is there you must seek and find him. Did you lose Christ by sin? You will find Christ in no other way but by the giving up of the sin, and seeking by the Holy Spirit to mortify the member in which the lust doth dwell. Did you lose Christ by neglecting the Scriptures? You must find Christ in the Scriptures. It is a true proverb, “Look for a thing where you dropped it, it is there.” So look for Christ where you lost him, for he has not gone away. But it is hard work to go back for Christ. Bunyan tells us, the pilgrim found the piece of the road back to the Arbour of Ease, where he lost his roll, the hardest he had ever travelled. Twenty miles onward is easier than to go one mile back for the lost evidence.

Take care, then, when you find your Master, to cling close to him. But how is it you have lost him? One would have thought you would never have parted with such a precious friend, whose presence is so sweet, whose words are so comforting, and whose company is so dear to you! How is it that you did not watch him every moment for fear of losing sight of him? Yet, since you have let him go, what a mercy that you are seeking him, even though you mournfully groan, “O that I knew where I might find him!” Go on seeking, for it is dangerous to be without thy Lord. Without Christ you are like a sheep without its shepherd; like a tree without water at its roots; like a sere leaf in the tempest–not bound to the tree of life. With thine whole heart seek him, and he will be found of thee: only give thyself thoroughly up to the search, and verily, thou shalt yet discover him to thy joy and gladness.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jer29:11

19     If you are willing and obedient,

        You shall eat the good of the land; Isa1:19

18 Bring your father and your households and come to me; I will give you the best of the land of Egypt, and you will eat the fat of the land. Gen45:17

27 So Israel dwelt in the land of Egypt, in the country of Goshen; and they had possessions there and grew and multiplied exceedingly.


5       Trust in the LORD with all your heart,

       And lean not on your own understanding;

6       In all your ways acknowledge Him,

       And He shall direct your paths.


7       The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge,

        But fools despise wisdom and instruction. Prov1:7



Goals that Glorify God ( by Fenny West)

all things are urs1

Goals that glorify God

Centre on His glory

And are anchored on the word

And put first, intimacy.

Intimacy with God is gold.

Need to be first goal;

Making it better;

Making it stronger;

Making it sweeter;

Making it deeper.


Then comes serving others.

Why? We need each other

To go on further,

Rise higher and higher;

Make our lives richer.


Jesus gave the pattern:

Love your God

With all your heart

With all your soul

And with all your might.

Love others as yourself.

1     “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.

5     “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.

9     “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.
