71:
'`For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord . 
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts higher than your thoughts. 
For as the rain and snow come down from heaven, And do not return there without watering the earth, Making it bear and sprout, And providing seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So will My word be which goes out of My mouth; It will not return to Me void (useless, without result), Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. '

Isaiah 55:8-11 AMP
Come and let us rejoice in the Lord 
The Lord our God is our redeemer 
His Word is Perfect

His word shall never return to Him void 
In the Lord’s presence there is freedom 
In the Lord’s presence there is fullness of Joy 

Come and enjoy the Lord Jesus our Saviour
Who has chosen us before the foundation of the world 
To be holy and blameless before Him in love

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness
The Power and the glory 
Rich in mercy with an everlasting love

You reign over all
In Your Hand is Grace and Mercy 
In Your Hand is the redemption and forgiven of sins

For we were but strangers before You
Our days on earth were like shadows 
And without hope 

It is in You we find hope 
It is in You we find the passion and purpose of life
Not of works but by Grace we are saved
Thank you for stopping by
God bless you in your journey

Secure yourself to the amazing Father
and the Lord of our Saviour Jesus Christ

Walk in His promises for Your life
Write them down

Say them out loud to yourself or anyone who will listen

Glorify His name especially in the bad weathers
His promises are trustworthy all the time

“Treasure Trove of Information”

And John bore witness, saying, 
"I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him.
"I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptise with water said to me, 
'Upon whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining on Him, 
this is He who baptises with the Holy Spirit.'
"And I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God."

John 1:32-34

Lovely to watch on TV (BBC) the tradition of announcing the New King into a modern world. Bringing the two together.

Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord to you.

Hope you had a good weekend. This weekend I joined the nation to listen to the life of HM Queen Elizabeth II (May her soul rest in peace) and God save King Charles III.

Hearing about her christian faith and I loved to hear the stories that the politicians talked about. Seeing the personal touch she made to all the lives around her. Was great to listen to. 

Her Quotes: 

“Grief is the price we pay for love”~ Queen Elizabeth II
"We all need to get the balance right between action and reflection. With so many distractions, it is easy to forget to pause and take stock." ~ Queen Elizabeth II

Her Christmas messages will be missed:

"It is true that the world has had to confront moments of darkness this year, but the Gospel of John contains a verse of great hope, often read at Christmas carol services: 'The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it'... Despite being displaced and persecuted throughout his short life, Christ's unchanging message was not one of revenge or violence but simply that we should love one another." (~ Queen Elizabeth II - Christmas message, 2015 - From Christian Today)

As I reflected on these words in John and the life of the HM Queen Elizabeth II

One has to look upwards and see The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit

From the beginning was the Word 
And the Word was with God
He was in the beginning with God

He is the Lord and our Shepherd
He brings light into our darkest moments 
He leads us in the path of righteousness 
For His Name sake

He will never leave us nor forsake us

He guides us:
As we walk in the mountains
We rejoice in the Lord 
And as we walk in the valleys 
His rod and staff will comfort us 

God is good and His mercy endures forever. 
Across to the Tower of London, the guns’ sounds could be heard on the 09 Sep 2022. I stopped to listen to the sound – 96 times. This I found out later.

It is good that you dropped by: 

Come and welcome to the vault. Hope you enjoyed your weekend and it is always a Joy when you stop by. 

The vault calls, as I was having a look around and thinking of the food we eat these days. Wanted to look more into Cholesterol. The human body is very interesting, well I find it interesting.

Cholesterol is a fatlike substance found in the blood, and it is made by the liver and also vital for the normal body function

Too much of it can cause serious health problems 

Humans can make all the cholesterol they need mainly from the liver, but extra can be gained from diet – either directly from foods such as eggs and meat or with some people because of the saturated fats, trans fats and some carbohydrates can boost their liver cholesterol production.

Cholesterol is needed to manufacture some hormones, vitamin D and bile acids (ingredient for the digestive juices).

Cholesterol is an essential structural component of animal cell membranes.

The liver regulates our cholesterol level, regardless of cholesterol in the diet, but too rich in certain foods can also make certain people produce too much

The fatty substances are transported in the body and cannot be mixed with our water-based body fluids and that includes cholesterol. Therefore they are bundled in a water friendly capsule to transport around the body. Cholesterol is packaged in a capsule called lipoproteins which comes in two major types. 

Bad cholesterol (LDL Low density lipoprotein) – it’s function is to deliver cholesterol to the blood where excess can build up. LDL have a small proportion of their weight as protein and they contain more cholesterol.

Good cholesterol (HDL – High-density lipoprotein) – takes the cholesterol out of the blood. HDL contains less cholesterol and other fatty parts and the particles are more denser. 

The cholesterol cycles between the Liver and the blood while performing vital functions. The process relies on a balance between the two: HDL and LDL.

Too much of LDL can cause plaques to start to build up in the arteries which can raise blood pressure and may lead to heart disease. High LDL levels can be a result of poor diet or genes.

HDL particles transport excess cholesterol from the cells, blood and plaque back to the liver.

The LIVER converts excess cholesterol into bile acids and recycles or excretes them.

Oh dear, look around. It is time for me to say goodbye but... hope to see you again.

Thank you again for stopping by it means a lot to me

Pray you have a wonderful week 🙂

May your week be full of The Joy of the Lord
I praise God for your life
May He teach you
His way as you walk in His foot path
In the Name of Jesus
Amen

Remember,
We cannot control what happens around us, 
but we can control our responses.
Be bless and know that the Lord loves you
Lots of Love - Hannah

And I also pray that this verse refreshes you this week: 
'However, 
I consider my life worth nothing to me; 
my only aim is to finish the race and 
complete the task the Lord Jesus has given 
me—the task of testifying to the 
good news of God’s grace. '
Acts 20:24 NIV

Learning to Live LIFE in Christ Jesus

So he answered and said to me:
This is the word of the Lord of Zerubbabel:
‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’
Says the LORD of hosts.
Zechariah 4:6 
On my walk home from work, it was raining and the sun was out so I went looking for the rainbow and found it closer to home. Before the sad news!!

Rest in Peace HM Queen Elizabeth II

Come and see the works of the LORD
He is awesome in His doing 
Towards the sons of men
He is our Salvation

As I look at Paul sitting writing his letter to the Corinth in response to what he read. I am reminded and inspired by 1 Corinthians 6

This week I was challenged as I read the words in 1 Corinthians  6: Sexual immority, sin and the body all in one package. 

As it starts with:

He prepared a table before us in the presence of our enemies. And He anoints our head with oil. Our cup is overflowing. Glory be to the Lord our God. For His goodness and mercy will always follow us. All the days of our lives as we dwell in His House forever.

… the saints will judge the world…we shall judge angels (verses 2-3)

How great is our God 
How wonderful is the Lord of Host 
For He has given us salvation 
Do not neglect so great a salvation 
Which was spoken and now confirmed in Christ Jesus
The Lord has spoken that we will judge the angels 
Do not take it lightly for such angels do not want 
to be ruled by humans neither be judged by them
The have rebelled against the Almighty God 
That means we are a target to defile the Lord of Host
Don’t give him that fulfilment and pleasure 
The enemy comes only to kill, steal and destroy 

Satan does not want to be judged by us humans 
He will do everything to ensure that we do not judge him
His pleasure is that he ruins the plans of God

We are to judge angels 
We are to sit at the table with GOD 

So how much more are the things of this world that we turn a blind eye to? 

Do you not know … (verse 15)

A question that challenged the Corinthian Christians to think about there sexual behaviours with prostitute and the connection to Jesus 

Secondly 

… your bodies are members of Christ (verse 15)

Think about it… you are one with Christ that means you taking the body to commit sexual immorality

You disgracing the body of Christ  

 … he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? (verse 16)

I become one with Christ Jesus 
My body, my soul and my spirit 
Belongs to Jesus Christ 
And therefore I have no right to give it away to any unauthorised person 
An unlawful lord over one’s body

What do I gain by stealing from the bank instead of patiently depositing into the bank until the right time to cash out?

O GOD, You are my God
Early will I seek You
My soul thirst for You
My flesh longs for You

In the land 
that is dry 
I am thirsty
For there is no water 
So I have looked for You 
In the sanctuary to see Your Power and Your glory

Because of Your lovingkindness 
I have become one with You
My lips will praise You
I will lift my hands in Your Name 

Even though everything is lawful
Not everything is helpful 
But in You my soul shall be satisfied 
And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips

Praises –

70:
' Blessed and worthy of praise be the God and 
Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 
who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing 
in the heavenly realms in Christ, '

Ephesians 1:3 AMP
Whitstable Beach
Rejoice in the Lord, all His saints 
For praise from the upright is beautiful 

Let us give thanks to God 
For the material things we have 
That is more than we deserve 

Praise the LORD and shout with thunders 
And hallelujahs for the spiritual blessings 

I tell you a new heart is better than a new coat 
Shout for JOY 
To feed on Christ is better than to have 
the best food in the world 
Praise the LORD
Come and sit at HIS feet 
For to be a SON or DAUGHTER of the LORD 
Is far better than to be a prince of princess 
of the greatest King or Queen 
And smile because 
To have GOD for our portion is a blessings 
Infinite blessing than to own a house 

The richest and rarest that we have 
Is the spiritual blessings from God 
They are priceless and cannot be valued 

And guess what we not animals 
We made in the image of God 
We are not made to just eat, sleep, entertain 
ourselves and reproduce - we are NOT animals 
Make a melody to the Lord our Shepherd 
Sing to HIM a new song 
Enjoy the presence of the LORD
For the LORD our MASTER is near 

Every spiritual blessing we receive is in Christ 
GOD wants to bless us with every spiritual blessing available to us 

For the word of the LORD is right 
And all His work is done in truth
He LOVES righteousness and justice
The earth is full of the goodness of the LORD 
Praise the Lord!
Thank you for stopping by
God bless you in your journey

Secure yourself to the amazing Father
and the Lord of our Saviour Jesus Christ

Learning to Live LIFE in Christ Jesus

They looked to Him and were radiant 
And their faces were not ashamed

Psalm 34:5
The fall of man 
The Lord is good and His mercy 
We cannot comprehend

In the cool of day of the day 
The beauty about listening to our LORD
Is that shame and nakedness does not have 
a place in the kingdom 

As I look at Paul sitting writing his letter to the Corinth in response to what he read. I am reminded and inspired by 1 Corinthians 5

It is actually reported that there is a sexual immorality among you,…. (verse one )

Do not fret because of evildoers 
From the first day when we hid ourselves 
From the LORD, naked and ashamed 
Clothe in nothing but fig leaves 
The ground is cursed and crumbling 
Our eyes are opened to the outside possibilities 

Trust in the Lord and do good
For in His loving kindness and faithfulness 
God made tunics of skins and clothe us 
Giving us a chance to fight 
A chance to walk with Him again 
Not to be afraid 

For He is our shield 
And exceedingly great reward 

So for years gone 
Sexually immorality has never changed
Dwell in the land and feed on Jesus' faithfulness
And also delight yourself in the Lord 

Commit your ways to the Lord
Trust also in Him 
Run from sin, Joseph did
Please run, yes run for your life 
Sometimes running is a better option

Sin hurts and sexually immorality is no different 
But I like a deaf man, do not hear
So I am a man who does not hear
But my hope is in the Lord
So I can tell you that being acquainted 
with sexual immorality has a great cost 

Like all other sins they all have a cost
I am ready to fall 
Because my certainty is not found in men 
But in the grace of God 

The Lord has not forsaken me
The Lord is near to me 
For I am not defined by my past 
But I am free and all chains are broken 

The wonderful news is all labels are removed 
The Lord my God is my salvation 
I am welcome in His House

Abraham was not defined by his past mistakes but 
Faith was accounted to him
And so when God sees our faith takes the step 

He meets us before we even reach the House of the Lord 
He changes my perception of the world 
He changes my perception of everything giving me a purpose

As I try to grasp the ways of life 

Sexual immorality leads to brokenness, shame, loneliness, hurt relationships, lost trust, open wounds without proper healing… the list goes on. Sin hurts and sexual immorality is no different 

It also opens the door to our heart

Guarding our heart always involves shutting the door to sin

Is is not funny that with the Greeks sex was common and practice and the Church of Corinthian followed what was practice. And so is the world we live in 

Sex is very common, sexually immorality seems to have slip into the church unknown and become common among us. 

As I end the week

Verse Seven: For indeed Christ, our Passover

Christ is indeed our Passover 
The Passover Lamb whose blood was shed on the Cross 
So that the judgement of God might pass over us 
We might not be ritual about it but we should live like that
Salvation, liberation, joy, plenty and purity from leaven

Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with unleavened bread of sincerity and truth (Verse Eight)

The basic way of Christianity 
Not only do we need to be in good company 
We also need to purify the inside individually as well as corporately 
Never giving  the enemy a footstool 
And also not judging the outside world for that is the job of God
