Trust. Follow. Pray. Hope. Peace. Faith. Love.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.
... But the greatest of these is love.
- 1 Corinthians 13:13

I've currently been teaching the children's segment at Ropes Crossing Church. We've been learning about many things like praying, loving our enemies, showing kindness to one another, and following Jesus.

I really enjoy teaching the kids, and always spend far too much (but necessary) time organising, preparing, and creating lesson plans, activities, crafts, and stories. I'm not one of those people (like my husband is) who can improvise an entire 45 minute lesson with just 5 minutes preparation time!!

I've also made thematic shortbread biscuits for church morning tea, and with royal icing, wrote simple words that have a deeper meaning for Christians :)

No matter where we are in our walk with Christ, it's always important to be reminded and encouraged in life (and to also occasionally be the one reminding and encouraging).

"Hand it over to God. Trust in His sovereignty. Pray about it." As much as these biscuits were originally for the children to be reminded about the character of God, I wanted the adults to also be reminded of the unity and peace we have through Christ.

Do not worry about anything, but pray about everything.
With thankful hearts, offer up your prayers and requests to God.
Then, because you belong to Christ Jesus,
God will bless you with peace that no one can completely understand.
And this peace will control the way you think and feel.
- Philippians 4:6-7

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and lean not on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
and he will make your paths straight.
- Proverbs 3:5-6

I am not ashamed of the gospel,
for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.
- Romans 1:16

In Christ alone, my hope is found :)
