Learning to Live LIFE in Christ Jesus

'The Lord says: 
“These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, 
but their hearts are far from me. 
Their worship of me is based on merely human rules they have been taught. 
Therefore once more I will astound these people with wonder upon wonder; 
the wisdom of the wise will perish, the intelligence of the intelligent will vanish.” '

Isaiah 29:13-14

The Lord is good and His mercy endures forever

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 2 to

Pause and wonder! 

Here I was trying to get some routine going. A week of no routine makes the body relax. 

As I pause, God reveals that it not about routines it is always about relationship

Yes I pause and wonder at our God
The Father is always faithful 
The Father loves it when we pause 
The Father loves it when we acknowledge with thanksgiving and praise to Him

So I wonder 

Am I flexible around Him or do I move further away because He does not fit into my box

He never leaves and He is always there 
Yes I pause and wonder at the beauty around me 
Looking at the sky 
Relationship is a tough cookie to crack and to maintain
But it is worth it as we see the glory of God 
Magnify in our lives

To use the language of Scripture 

Pause and wonder!

Yes I pause and wonder 

Wonder at the amazing God we serve 
Wonder as the light shines in the darkness

Yes I pause and wonder 

Pause and see the darkness becoming light 
Pause and see the storm become still at the sound of His voice 
Pause and bask in His glory
Pause and let your heart be moved towards Him 

Wonder at how He cleans the temple 
Pause and see what He is doing in the temple 
For when He comes to the temple
It never remains the same 
The money, or the worry and the treasures of the world 
He overturns all the tables

Pause and wonder and see that He is bigger than everything 
Pause and be still in His Presence as you wonder at how awesome our God is

Yes Pause and wonder 
For eyes have not seen nor has the mind comprehend the greatness of our God 
Yes pause for God has revealed every mystery to us through His Spirit
 
Jesus Christ, The Gospel reveals this glorious thing that is on Earth as it is in Heaven 
Yes Pause and wonder

Praises –

66:
Take what is yours and go your way. 
I wish to give to this last man the same as to you. 
Is it not lawful for me to do what I wish with my own things?
Or is your eye evil because I am good?
So the last will be the first, and the first last. 
For many are called, but few are chosen.

Matthew 20:14-16
Is it not lawful for Me to do what I wish with My own things?

My God and my King 
How excellent is Your Name in all the earth

I am speechless and in awe
For words have failed me
I talk too much, and listen less
But I am ready to keep quiet and listen 

The Heavens are Yours and the earth is Yours too
The world and all its fullness, You have founded them
You have a mighty arm

Righteousness and Justice are the foundation of Your throne
Your Mercy and Truth are the building blocks in our lives 
Blessed are the saints who knows the Joy of the Lord
They walk in the Your light which never goes out

For You Lord God are the glory of their strength 
And in Your favour our strength is exalted 

You are my shield and exceedingly great reward
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”

'Look at him; give him your warmest smile. 
Never hide your feelings from him. ' 

Psalms 34:5 MSG 

Hi and welcome. Hope you had a good weekend. On Saturday we travelled back on the coach, and Sunday in church blessed by the word of God from 2 Chronicles 24:1-27

It is not how you start but how you finish that matters.

The people turn away from after the priest dies 
God always persevere and He raised up Zechariah 
God never gives up and keeps to His promise always

As I listen to the preaching and our pastor ends with “knowing who you are changes the nation” 

When the priest died the King forgot who he was. We should never foget who we are.

We are LOVED and chosen by the KING
Be gentle and a servant
Resist the lies of what others say and LISTEN to GOD

When we listen to the enemy 
We forget who we are
We become disloyal

In all of this GOD
Our KING would never do that
He is loyal and always receives us with open arms

I took pictures in the quiet of the moment when all was sleeping and just enjoying the rise of the sun. It is such a massive difference looking at the sunrise in the city to outside the city.

Before it becomes scorching in the day,  the radant from the rise of the sun is so warm and welcoming. It does leave you to gaze in wonder at the beauty of the sky. 

In return we look at God the Maker 
Who deserves all the praise 
Shout to  the Lord, all His saints 
Give to the Lord all glory and strength 
Give to Him the glory due to His Name
Worship the Lord in the beauty of Holiness

The Lord sits as King forever
The Lord is great and greatly to be praised

Came back on Saturday and pretty much rested on Sunday: 

Reflecting on the week away as different things were covered. 

Our morning session was just studying 1 Peter 2:4-11

As I reflect on his words and looking at the verses 

Jesus the perfect example showed us what it meant to walk with Him

 He is the cornerstone and on Him the foundation is stronger
On Him the beauty is shown as the blocks are laid 
On Him alone the house is built on a rock

It is wonderful to be part of God’s plan and not an accident
We are His 
Chosen race and very precious to God
Royal priesthood
Holy nation 
His special people

At Night looking at the sky
The stars
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

'The Lord God is the one who brings together all the Israelite people who are in exile . 
He says, ‘I will continue to bring more people to join with them.’ '

Isaiah 56:8

I am away this first week of August and as I sit on the last day of the month of July writing. I wanted to thank you for all the encouragement and the blessing you are to me when you visit, like and comment. Thank you. 

Blessings to you!

The journey with Paul continues… In 1 Corinthians:

Glory only to the Lord Jesus Christ: as I read verses twenty-six to thirty one

You see your calling…

Think about those words to the corinth 
Paul calls the Corinthians to look in the mirror 
God has not chosen them because of their wisdom 
Nor did He choose because of the flesh 

Oh the FLESH - you are mighty nor the noble
The upside down kingdom

Not one is chosen because of the flesh…
The flesh is weak and feeble 
It does decay with time
It also sleeps when you don't need it to 

And so Paul continues

God has chosen the foolish things of the world…

Paul reminds them and brings them back to earth 
Sometimes the flesh forgets and think it is strong 
It can do all things by itself
 
But NO, the word of God is alive 
It reminds us of the ways of the Lord 
It encourages us 
It convicts us 
Sometimes we forget that it not by works
That God is the one that chooses us 
 
I do love the way Paul brings the staff down so to speak: 
 
The Shepherd is the Shepherd and you are the sheep
He choose you not because you are great 
He choose you not because of your nobility
He chooses because He is great

The foolish things in the world is a treasure to God 
He is the Creator of the world 
He does not replicate from an object 
He creates the object itself into a jewellery
Things that are lost and rubbish in the world 

It is good that God doesn’t choose us because we are in the shelf, ready and on display for the world

No, that is not our GOD but our 
God chooses the ones with cobwebs 
The ones hidden and out of place 
The ones that have no use to human race anymore 
Those are the ones He chooses 
WHY?
Because GOD is Great!
And He puts to shame the wise

The upside down Kingdom
The mind cannot fathom it 
 
He calls the weak and ignorant FIRST 
It is also not an exclusive club
Don’t be wise 
For He also calls the Shepard FIRST 
Then the wise men 

Fishermen FIRST (the disciples) then the educated like Paul
This is the wisdom of God and it is not exclusive 
Nor is it set on stones 

His ways are not our ways 
Neither is His thoughts our thoughts 
Do not be wise in your own eyes 
For God is great
