“Treasure Trove of Information”

Teach me Your way, O LORD;
I will walk in Your truth;
Unite my heart to fear Your name.
I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart,
And I will glorify Your Name forevermore
For great is Your mercy toward me, 
And You have delivered my soul from the depts of Sheol

Psalm 86:11-13

Welcome to the vault, hope you had a very good weekend. My weekend was good and on Sunday we started a new series which is based on Peter’s letter.

It got me thinking: 

Dear lovely people,

May Grace and Peace be multiplied to you.

It got me thinking: 

We have gone from letters to now emails. 

I do get to write emails to other colleagues and also clients and customers. Our way of communication to others and sometimes these can be misinterpreted and secondly emotionless.  

Sometimes we can forget that another person reads that email. Do we think about how we want them to read the emails? If that was me, how would I want to receive this email? 

Not to forget we are bombarded with so many emails that do us no good. 

Follow me to the vault, for we are to check out one of the electronic forms of communications.  

Electronic mails (or emails or e-mails) we have come a long way and advanced in writing letters to others. 

According to Wikipedia: E-mails is a method of exchanging messages between people using electronic devices. 

Emails came at the right time when physical mails could not be received and it is a medium to receive messages 

The term electronic mail has been in use with its modern meaning since 1975, and variations of the shorter E-mail have been in use since 1979

As I taught about the message from Peter. 

Meditating on the words and pondering on how Peter who walked with Jesus, slept, ate, argued with Jesus. Wrote a letter.

The style of the letter has not changed. 

We start with greetings and then the message and a conclusion with a bye. 

Sometimes emails can be overwhelming with lots of things that I really don’t want to see. I am glad we have spam emails inbox but sometimes some do bypass. 

We receive some that are frauds that look to do anything to defraud us from our money or even our identity. 

It is good to have filters but it is also good to be aware that not all emails are good for us. 

I sit and think, did receiving letters have so much securities 

How times do change?

Does it get better or worst ?

It might depend on your perspective 

Emails are a lot quicker and also it does not depend on both of you the receiver and sender to be online at the same time

It also means you can send to a lot of people at one time only. 

When it comes to saving the environment, we will have to take into account the devices that send and read the emails. 

So I listen to the sermon on Peter and meditate on all that I have heard. 

Praised be to God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.  
By His boundless mercy we have been born again 
To an ever-living hope through the resurrection of our 
Lord Jesus Christ from the dead. 

Lord, You have been favourable to us 
You have forgotten the iniquity of Your people 
You have covered all our sins
You have taken away all Your wrath

Lord, restore to us the Joy of Your salvation
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

'I lay down and slept [safely]; 
I awakened, for the Lord sustains me. 
I will not be intimidated or afraid of the ten thousands 
Who have set themselves against me all around. '

Psalms 3:5-6 AMP 

David gives me hope, if he can sleep so can I. For my God sustains me and Jesus has rescued us from sin and death.

Grace to you and peace from the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. And I hope you have a good sleep this weekend.

What a week? 

It has been cold and I am also learning a lot.

I never used to understand the concept of Corinthians, well I don’t think I do now anyway. Learning to read the Bible from God’s eyes and what He is saying and not making it about me. 

The Bible is worth learning if the enemy can do anything to take away the word of God and create multiples of counterfeit then it is worth investing our lives in it. Because it is very valuable. 

As I come to the end of 1 Corithians chapter 14: it becomes clear: this is about the Corithians and Paul receiving a letter and then responding to the letter. 

It gives us a lamp that lights the path so we don’t make the same mistakes but learn from it.

Spiritual Self indulgence is not the goal 
It is a monstrous evil 
It shows it ugly head in the church 
For it must come to fed always 
It is never there to be edify
It is never there to give to others
So one must kill it

As Paul continues to teach the Corinthians, one truly have to look at Jesus

The wind and wave obey Him 
We all have a choice 

The word of God is not written to disrupt the body 
The word of God is not written to cause confusion 

The beauty about God 
Is allowing us to ask questions 

'All Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] 
and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], 
for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], 
for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, 
both publicly and privately—behaving honourably with personal integrity and moral courage]; '

2 Timothy 3:16 AMP

The entire church service gathering should be regulated 
Not everyone should be talking at the same time
If everyone is talking then no one is listening
The Holy Spirit should lead our thought process. 
And we are given gifts so we can use it and encourage the church to grow in strength.

Paul was teaching the Corinthians on how to behave in the gathering in the church. 
Chapter 14: verses 34-35

Women are not in the church to distract…. 
We are women of God 
Worshipers, preachers, teachers, prophets 
We are are to edify, teach and receive from the body as well as from the Holy Spirit 
With questions, answers can given at the end of the service

The END of chapter fourteen: 
Prophecy - desire it and come in as a blessing to the church. Speak a new message from God to the people 
Edify the church….
Speaking tongues - continue to speak and seek in your devotional and to help in the church. 
There should always be an ORDER in the church - being gentle and listening to one and other

Praises –

89:

'First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, 
because your faith [your trust and confidence in His power, 
wisdom, and goodness] is being proclaimed in all the world. '

Romans 1:8 AMP
Sunset: Center Parcs Elveden Forest
Let us sing to the Lord a new song 
And His praise from the ends of the earth 
For the Lord Jesus, is the King of our hearts

He is the Great I am that I am 
He is the Alpha and the Omega 
He is the  Beginning and the End 

Let all sing praises to His Holy Name
And worship Him in His Holy temple
For the Lord our God goes forth like a mighty man

He has won the battle 
He has prevail against His enemies
He is the First and the Last

Great is our God 
And greatly to be praise
Great is our God
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”

The LORD is righteous in all His ways,
Gracious in all His works.
The Lord is near to all who call upon Him,
To all who call upon Him in truth
He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him;
He also will hear their cry and save them.

Psalm 145:17-19
Centre Parc Elveden Forest

Grace to you and peace from God the Father and Saviour of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Hope you had a good weekend. 

I had a fun, relaxing weekend away to Centre Parcs Elveden Forest on a strategic planning trip away from London. Praying for each other and also our youths as it was a Youth Leaders away bonding weekend. It was a great time of worship, walking, running and also getting lost in the woods. 

I learned a lot over the weekend. 

One of the things is communications, 

According to google search: Communication is the imparting or exchanging of information by speaking, writing, or using some other medium.

It is amazing how God speaks to us in different ways, dreams, visions, pictures, through another person and through His Word. Whichever form we receive the word of God it is always important to test it and know that it is truth and aligns with the character and nature of God. 

To everything in life there is a season 
In all things, it is good to fear the Lord
And to remember God has made everything beautiful 
In its time 

Today, I sit and considered all that is happening 
In the world under the sun
And look at the tears
The tears of all that is oppressed 
But they have no comforter 
For anything besides God is like wind
That blows away

On the other side are ones with power
But they do not also have any comforter 
For they grasp only the wind

Therefore I praise my God 
For He is faithful even when we not 
In a world of despair 
He is our comforter.
 
My soul without the Lord 
We perish and remember 
Time and tide waits for no man 
God judges the righteous and the wicked
For there is time for every purpose 
And for every work. 

Come follow, the vault awaits. As I was reflecting on my weekend. 

There is time for everything under the sun. Todaylet us look at the magic of decluttering the home:

What better way to start the January with a fresh start by decluttering vibes in the home. 

Reduce stress, boost your mood, sharpen your focus, the benefits are endless for our health, especially the mind. 

Clearing the home might be daunting at first but the first thing to do is 

  1. Start with the easiest things: clothes, books, paper and miscellaneous. Leave all sentimental items last.
  2. Create a list – I mean a declutter checklist. It helps to have different categories and tick as you go along and it does help to see the progress you are making.
  3. Keep the things that you love and that are useful. The rest can be given away, recycled safely.
  4. Gifts – Christmas is over and we all have unwanted gifts. First open the gift and see if you will like it or not. If it is clothing, then try it on, you might be surprised. But if it is not really for you then pass it without guilt. There are plenty of people who will be very grateful to receive it. 

Always start small.

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

Learning to Live LIFE in Christ Jesus

'for God [who is the source of their prophesying] 
is not a God of confusion and disorder but of peace and order. 
As [is the practice] in all the churches of the saints (God’s people), '

1 Corinthians 14:33 AMP 
Edited in Prisma app with Cartoon

The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!

Hope your week was good.

An interesting journey this week 
It is always good to come across treasures 
That can be store in the heart 


Let us give thanks in all things 
My soul let us praise the Lord 
For His mercy is new every morning
And His favour is for life 

Weeping may endure for a night
But joy comes in the morning 
Oh how I love the Lord 
For He has set me free  

One of the many things that struck me is 
“We are the Church” - 
A light that can never be taken out 

A mountain may be removed 
The hills may shake 
But the loving kindness may not be removed from you 
Nor will my covenant of peace be shaken
Says the Lord who has compassion on you
Isaiah 54:10

Out of the compassion of God, I can study His word 
Out of the compassion of God, I have a job 
Favour is everywhere because of the compassion of God.

So as I continue my journey through 1 Corinthians 14: 

It is not only the Corinthian but growing up, I too used to think that having spiritual gifts makes you more spiritually. But it doesn’t 

God in His wisdom, gives the gift at the very start of your journey, or in the middle or the end. 

Before we get to the end of the journey, we should not be child-like in our thinking, but be infant in the matter of evil but also in our minds be mature. And trusting in the Lord our God.

Prophecy and speaking in tongues: 

‘Now, believers, if I come to you speaking in unknown tongues, how will I benefit you unless I also speak to you [clearly] either by revelation [revealing God’s mystery], or by knowledge [teaching about God], or by prophecy [foretelling the future, speaking a new message from God to the people], or by instruction [teaching precepts that develop spiritual maturity]? ‘ (6 AMP)

Paul reveals why Prophecy and the other spiritual gifts  is essential to the lives of Corinth: 

  1. Revelation – revealing God’s mystery 
  2. Knowledge – teaching about God
  3. Prophecy – speaking a new message from God to the people and letting them in to the future 
  4. Instruction – teaching that develops spiritual maturity from the scriptures itself.

Eager for the spiritual gifts but in ways that will spiritually build the church up. 

This is counter cultural to our sense of knowing in the world. 

The kingdom of God is not built on one building block that stands alone 
but it is a series of building blocks to build up the spiritual house, 
holy and pleasing to the Lord with the cornerstone 
which the builders have rejected and now the chief cornerstone, 
elect, precious, and all that believes in Him will by no means be put to shame.

Our goal in the church body should always be mutual benefits at the church meetings. 
And if we are to speak in tongues then let there also be interpretation so the body is edified. 
If you speak in tongues, then you must Pray to God that gives you the tongue to also give you the interpretation. 

Tongues do not benefit the mind because it does not understand. 
But it does benefit the spirit as it gets closer to God. 

I tell you, the word of the Lord is a lamp that shows just enough for today. 

Yes, speaking in tongues is also good when you are alone. 
When you want to give thanks, pray to God, sing to God, Bless the Lord 
for the enemy does not understand or comprehend the words. 
It cannot be used as a weapon against you 
It purpose is speak to God alone. 

Tongues are good for the spirit as the word of God is good for the minds.
