Fenny in Concert. Hurry! Limited Space ( by Fenny West)

Fenny in Concert. Hurry! Limited Space

A picture can preach a message and can be more than a thousand words.

fenny in Concert with a crowd

People were in the rafters and it spilled into the open. Even babes could not contain themselves.

Or was it, ‘If the adults will not come I will serenade the  babes to sleep?

You decide what this picture is saying.

 

 

Other possible sayings of this picture

 

Since he cannot preach to people he is preaching to bones like Ezekiel

 

Who is the captive audience?

 

If you cannot preach to one person, you are not qualified to preach to millions.

 

Fenny’s humble beginning.

 

It all started here.

It takes one to reach one.

 

Thank God I have an audience.

 

When the table is all set and the sumptuous sup is causing mouths to water and those invited are making excuses, go to the high ways and by ways, nooks and crannies  and bring in the lame, blind etc until my house is full.

 

Those who humble themselves will be exalted.

Beastly Bravado! ( by Fenny West)

 

Money matters matter.

They can make you wise

Or make you foolish.

They can make you rise

or make you fall.

 

They bring out the Jacob in you

as you begin to wheel and deal in life,

running from pillar to post,

yet with no place to hide;

 

Robbing Peter to pay Paul

until you have an encounter with God,

 

Who changes you

 

from Jacob to Prince with God.

 

Proverbs 22:

1     A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, Loving favor rather than silver and gold.

2     The rich and the poor have this in common, The LORD is the maker of them all.

 

8     Remove falsehood and lies far from me; Give me neither poverty nor riches — Feed me with the food allotted to me;

9          Lest I be full and deny You, And say, “Who is the LORD?” Or lest I be poor and steal, And profane the name of my God.

Prov30:8-9

9          For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich. 2Cor8:9

Believe God for the Best

 

Believe God for the best

Refuse the second best

So long as you have life

Go for abundant life.

 

Greater One is in you

He’s there to bring you through.

Put your hands in His hands

And you’ll enter your land.

 

Don’t say, ’It is too late

That world to create

If you have faith in God

You will see the reward.

 

Go, go my friend, for gold

Refuse what you’ve been sold.

It’s like horse meat for beef

Say, ‘No! This is not beef!

This is not my portion

I rise into action

I go in Jesus Name

Even if I am lame

I refuse to be tame.

God will give me the best

That is my one request.

I know, He is faithful

And He is merciful

And above all truthful.

Jacob Marries Leah and Rachel

15   Then Laban said to Jacob, “Because you are my relative, should you therefore serve me for nothing? Tell me, what should your wages be?

16   Now Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel.

17   Leah’s eyes were delicate, but Rachel was beautiful of form and appearance.

18   Now Jacob loved Rachel; so he said, “I will serve you seven years for Rachel your younger daughter.”

19   And Laban said, “It is better that I give her to you than that I should give her to another man. Stay with me.”

20   So Jacob served seven years for Rachel, and they seemed only a few days to him because of the love he had for her.

21   Then Jacob said to Laban, “Give me my wife, for my days are fulfilled, that I may go in to her.”

22   And Laban gathered together all the men of the place and made a feast.

23   Now it came to pass in the evening, that he took Leah his daughter and brought her to Jacob; and he went in to her.

24   And Laban gave his maid Zilpah to his daughter Leah as a maid.

25   So it came to pass in the morning, that behold, it was Leah. And he said to Laban, “What is this you have done to me? Was it not for Rachel that I served you? Why then have you deceived me?”

26   And Laban said, “It must not be done so in our country, to give the younger before the firstborn.

27   Fulfill her week, and we will give you this one also for the service which you will serve with me still another seven years.”

28   Then Jacob did so and fulfilled her week. So he gave him his daughter Rachel as wife also.

29   And Laban gave his maid Bilhah to his daughter Rachel as a maid.

30   Then Jacob also went in to Rachel, and he also loved Rachel more than Leah. And he served with Laban still another seven years. Gen29:15-30

God always has the best for us, but we have an enemy who wants to short-change us and steal that best, kill that best or destroy that best. He come in various guises. At times it can be a direct affront like he tried to do to Jesus when he tempted him in the wilderness. At other times it could be through people close to us, whom we trust; may be family members or very good friends as he did using Peter to dissuade Jesus from going to t he cross. At other times he uses our weaknesses to steal God’s best for us.

 

However, it is not always the fault of the enemy when we lose God’s best.  The enemy can be in us. We can often be our worst enemies. And when this happens, we run the risk of losing the best of God.

 

Jacob had his eyes on Rachel and served Laban for seven years for her hand, but on the wedding night something unbelievable happened. Laban had all along being forging a plan to rob Jacob of the best he had hoped for. He had seen how God was blessing him because of Jacob and wanted to retain his service for much longer; and so he used the cover of darkness to rob Jacob of his bride.

 

Leah, under the cover of darkness was led to Jacob and whilst Jacob thought he was having a time of his life on his honeymoon night with Rachel, he never knew that it was Leah. She pretended all along  in the darkness and gave nothing away until daybreak. 

When the sun rose and entered the room, Jacob almost had a heart attack. He could not believe his eyes: Leah, with her unusual eyes was under his embrace instead of Rachel. What is happening! Was it a dream? But it was real. He was not seeing a vision. She smiled at him but it was not a funny joke to Jacob.

 

Jacob approached Laban to find out what was going on and Laban told him casually that it was customary to give the elder daughter away before the younger one, and he had inkling until then. It left a bitter taste in Jacob’s mouth. He may have thought he had met his match in wheeling and dealing. But this was on another level however.

 

Jacob had to make a decision, to storm away in anger and leave Laban  or stay and get the best he had bargained for. He was wise and went for God’s best. He was prepared to make the necessary sacrifices for the best of God.

 

So my friend, is anyone trying to steal God’s best from you? Refuse to allow the enemy from short-changing you. Go for God’s best.

However, knowing God’s best is not always easy. What is God’s best for David may not be God’s best for Darren and what is God’s best for Mary may not be God’s best for Martha. We need to be intimate with God to know His best for our lives. Whereas it is clear that God’s best will not violate His word, there are certain occasions where it is intimacy that will make it crystal clear.

 

 

So find out His best and go for it.

Horses for Courses

Horses for Courses

 

 044[1]

When the horses have galloped

Gallantly into courses

And entered man’s menu

Disguised as beef

What is the beef?

 

‘Never mind if it is a delicacy in France,

But the problem is I am not French.’

What else do we have in disguise?

Dog? Cat? Frog? Snake?

Sailing on Snailmobile

Hopping a ride

On snailway-

A slowmobile,

Not a wise way

Unless direction

In His Wisdom

To teach patience.

 snailway ride

If so let patience

Have a perfect work

So that you will not

Be found wanting.

 

If you are freeloading

What you save in fares

You will lose in opportunities.

 

Profiting from Trials

2     My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials,

3     knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.

James1:

 

“It looks like a great way to get around – as long as you don’t mind travelling at a snail’s pace.

This frog obviously was not in a rush as he hitched a free ride across a pond on the shell of a snail.

Photographer Nordin Seruyan captured the unusual pairing in his garden in central Borneo, Indonesia, after spotting the frog jump on to the snail’s back before it slowly slithered around the pond.

‘I’ve never seen behaviour like this before. I laughed when I first saw it and then quickly grabbed my camera to picture it,’ said the 37-year-old.”

En route slaughter house

Courtesy coming Christmas?

But the fowls are appealing

For a reprieve, stay of execution

Is there any lawyer there who can help?

Because time is running out.

Misunderstanding

 

Whiskey

An angry wife was complaining about her husband spending so much of his free time in the local bar, so one night he took her along with him.
"What'll you have?" he asked.

"Oh, I don't know. The same as you I suppose," she replied. So, the husband ordered a couple of Jack Daniel's and threw his down in one shot.

His wife watched him, then took a sip from her glass and immediately spit it out. "Yuck, that's TERRIBLE!" she spluttered. "I don't know how you can drink this stuff!"

"Well, there you go," cried the husband. "And you think I'm out enjoying myself every night!"

 

In Need of God’s Help

Did you hear about the guy who prayed, ‘Lord, so far today I’ve done all right. I haven’t gossiped, lost my temper, been nasty, greedy or grumpy. But in a few minutes I’m gonna have to get out of bed, then I’m gonna need all the help I can get.’

Bad Timing

Bad Timing
 A parish priest, Father O'Brien, was being honored at a dinner on the 25th anniversary of his arrival in that parish.
 A leading local politician, who was a member of the congregation, was chosen to make the presentation and give a little speech at the dinner, but he was delayed in traffic
 Sooo.....Father O'Briend decides to say his own few words while they await the politician's arrival......
 "You will understand," he said, "the seal of the confessional, can never be broken. What is confessed in there to me, is never repeated on the outside.
 However, I got my first impressions of this parish from the first confession I ever heard here.
 Realize, please, that I can only hint vaguely about this, but when I came here 25 years ago, I thought I had been assigned to a terrible place.
 The very first chap who entered my confessional told me how he had stolen a television set and, when stopped by the police, had almost murdered the officer. Further, he told me he had embezzled money from his place of business and had an affair with his boss's wife. I was appalled. But as the days went on I knew that my people at this congregation were not all like that, and I had, indeed come to, a fine parish full of understanding and loving people."
 Just as the priest finished his talk, the politician arrived, apologized for his tardiness and then started in on his speech.
 "I want to thank you all for letting me say a few words this evening in here, I had the honor of being the first confession he heard at this congregation."
 Now that is bad timing.
