'In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.' 'He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.' John 1:1-5 NLT
Grace and peace to you from our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Wow, another week has started and I am delighted you can drop by.
Welcome to my vault, hope you had a good weekend? For me?…
The Olympics are over and back to the Premier league. I Hope that this season United are at the top.
It was great to watch and listen.
And I got to learn a few things while watching it and listening to it. As I was at work, it was just background noise.
Listening - it might have been background noise but I still could gather a few comments here and there. Leading me to believe that what we listen to matters a lot A background noise is not just that It is like letting the sun in through the window but not going out You still get the sun. It is such a great encourager for the next generation They see and believe that they can Therefore we have a great responsibility To follow God’s example in everything we do because We are all his children. Courage - it takes great courage to face your opponent and the public In this world we will face all trails The devil comes to kill, steal and destroy BUT Knowing that you are not fighting against flesh and blood should take the weight off Giving us the courage to fight Teamwork - we are never alone Having and knowing that we fight a winning battle changes the dynamic of the game Even working as a team we fight to win I don’t know about you BUT I want to receive the prize of well done my good and faithful servant The most lesson for me was that God loves us That everything we do He is interested in it He smiles when we do He cries when we cry He laughs when we do Separating Him from my life brings trouble When I take the Lord with me Cleaning up happens on the go I mean Grace is New every day So no piling up of the plates They are washed clean daily The spell was broken The will of God becomes natural Praying without ceasing Giving thanks in everything With the end of the games All have gone Home separately unless you are a couple BUT God is the company that does not have to leave Lord, You are the foundation That is stronger than anything.
So at Church the sermon was exactly what I needed to hear: Sharing in the community
Sharing through Prayer Sharing through care Sharing and not comparing Sharing and not preparing
Brilliantly done by this lovely lady (Claire) wow did she punch the heavy bag out of the way:
Sharing not preparing is my thing that I was convicted off The Lord prepares the table The Lord invites us to the table The Lord chooses everyone And He wants us to be ourselves Where ever we are He brings the right people And all I need to do is be myself It is great to get up daily, above all it is great to get in the uncomfortable zone. Physically and emotionally. I never thought I would walk daily but I do against all odds. I never thought I would love people but yet I do (still work in progress). I still have things that I need to do that are uncomfortable. But that is life getting uncomfortable makes the heart beat faster and keeps me alive.
Thank you again for stopping by it means a lot to me. Pray you have a wonderful week 🙂 We cannot control what happens around us, but we can control our responses. Be bless and know that the Lord loves you ©Hannah M Vandi. 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
