A Life Built on Faith

What are you building into your life each day?

So many things I see around me in the natural that are under construction. Beliefs are continually under construction. Advertising is trying to get our attention and to believe “it’s the real thing.”

Faith means to trust and believe. More importantly in whom or what have we put our trust in?

The focus of our attention in this world is forever changing. Having a life built on Faith is trusting the truth of God’s word to be forever settled in heaven and on earth. In heaven is the invisible and on earth is the visible.

We can experience a knowing in our heart that all is well. Our Father is forever satisfied and well pleased with us.

It doesn’t matter how strong we are. We all have down times or what I call needing a mental health day. What’s important is to hold onto hope. Christ in us is the Hope to anchor each thought. A stronghold is only a mindset that has believed a lie.

It’s time to be kind to your mind. No fight is needed even that has been completed. It only takes the letting go of the old to make room for the new. Return your focus to the Light and Love is letting go of those lies.

Lies that no longer serve you anything but stress and worry to feel driven and hurried. The truth is Love and it does feel good. It is peaceable and patient. Patience is the fruit of trust which circles us right back to Faith.

God’s Love is present IN us to know He is patient with us. I believe in strengthening my life built on Faith.

Happy Fall Y’all!

Cristo EN nosotros ha traído el fin de la ley yel pecado …

English translation: Christ IN us has brought the end of law and sin!! THE END to which ALL things relate with AIM and PURPOSE.‎

Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: Receiving the end of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

1Peter 1:8 & 9

Receive THE END of your faith – That which is Finished! Christ Jesus IS the Beginning,  the End, and everything in between.

The Faithful Believing City

Hello City!

Did you know you are the City of God? Emmanuel IN us with us!

The City of Righteousness is called the Faithful Believing City. Isaiah 1:26

The lesson we learn while we are here is Love. How to receive it, believe it, and to share it. Christ is the Righteousness of God and the Life of God Himself in us. The seed is Christ the Love of our Father.

Jesus who was, is and is to come – is the Word made flesh and dwelt among us. Showing us the Love of our Father and His prayer that we would know Him, the love  and the fullness of His being AS ONE and all in all.

 I love this saying, “Nevertheless -alwaysthemore, the more than enough.”

The children of Israel wandered in the wilderness because they did not believe and call it today.

Hebrews 4:3 “We enter into rest when we believe.”

Romans 15:13 “Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Spirit of Holiness.”

* Jacob’s heart “fainted” because he did NOT believe.
* Abraham believed and it was counted to him as righteousness.
* Their countenance was cast down when they did NOT believe.
* When they believed they sang praise.

What are you believing? What you believe you repeat – What are you reporting?

Now to just believe and receive JOY unspeakable and full of Christ-Glory. The word unspeakable means IN a COMPLETION that is indescribable.

The sound of joy and rejoicing is heard in the cities and tents of the righteous and they are satisfied with His fruit unto life everlasting.

He shall reward every man according to HIS Works not ours!!

Now that is Mercy and Grace all over our days and nights!

Always-N-Joy with peace for the journey, Joanne

Harmony and Perfection

Cast your burden upon the Lord and declare, “It is Finished in me.”

To cast our burden is to insist upon harmony and peace of mind. Faith is a certainty from knowing how things should be because of His promise of blessing.

When we begin to remember who we are and what we have life situations can turn around without any worry or anxiety right there and right now. He told Israel I will speak to you between the Cherubim there at the Mercy Seat. Hearing our Holiness is unto the Lord and He hath perfected them forever because we are sanctified as one joined to another.

Harmony and Perfection are the facts, move over and let Him reign. Reign means He is King Now! Heal the sick and say, “The Kingdom has come joined as ONE with YOU today!” The King has come with His Kingdom with Righteousness/Christ, Peace, and Joy in the Spirit of Holiness.

Luke 10:9; Romans 1:4; 14:17; Hebrews 1:8

Established in Grace

It’s a very good thing for our heart to know we have been established in grace. Grace is the Keeper or Watchman of our salvation.

Now by the same Spirit of Grace we enjoy the same level of unashamed relationship with the Father as Jesus does. Why? Because He prayed that we would know the Love our Father has for us and rest being AS ONE.  Think about it…”Whatever is TRUE of HIM, is TRUE of US in HIM right now.” 1John 2:8 & 4:17

Now that is GOOD NEWS! He is forever loving and enlightening us to His love and SO GREAT SALVATION.

I love searching the unsearchable riches of our inheritance. I found this word peace to be another JOINED AS ONE.

The Greek word Peace #G1515 is eirēnē pronounced ā-rā’-nā means PEACE but also more JOINED AS ONE to PEACE to produce harmony — because peace and harmony make and keep things quiet, safe and prosperous and exemption from the rage and havoc of war.

Faith is to trust and believe – whom or what do we trust in? Are we learning to PUT that trust in Father. We learn by seeking (SEE -King) Him and we study to know where and why we can rest. So with the understanding we get  “in the KNOWING” we can keep yielding our members to Him which has so graciously joined us unto His peace and harmony.

“And the very God of peace [G1515] sanctify you wholly; and your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1Thes. 5:23

I can hear the shout, “Get ready to bloom in a Beautiful Way!”

Always-N-Joy-N-Peace, Joanne
