Act Justly, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly with God

29 May 2020, 15:56 // Hannah Kelly

Hi gals!

This our final Bible Email, and I thought we’d go out with a bang. I was going to write about endings and beginning, but with everything that’s been in the news the last few weeks, it seemed impossible to not address the verse that we’ve been looking at in our Older Youth Bible Studies. 

Micah 6 verse 8 provides an immortal line about the way we are all called to live;


“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.

And what does the Lord require of you?

To act justly and to love mercy

Broken to be Healed

Hi Girls!

I feel like I’m always saying this, but as ever a particular verse seems to be chasing me at the moment. This time it comes from the prophet Hosea. His story is a rough one; God calls him to marry a promiscuous woman and then tells him that all his kids are going to have names like “not loved” and “not my people.” (Before you stop reading this post in despair, the kids get renamed “my people” and “loved!) But the story isn’t actually about him at all. His life becomes a picture of how God will redeem His people. 

Verses 6: 1 - 3 say:

A Time to Hope

Lamentations 3 v 19 - 36 (The Message)


19-21 I’ll never forget the trouble, the utter lostness,

    the taste of ashes, the poison I’ve swallowed.

I remember it all—oh, how well I remember—

    the feeling of hitting the bottom.

But there’s one other thing I remember,

    and remembering, I keep a grip on hope:

Psalm 143

“Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,

For I have put my trust in you.

Show me the way I should go,

For to you I entrust my life.” Psalm 143:8


Hi Girls,

This week I just have a simple reminder of why getting into the Word each day is such a good thing.

Waiting on God

“For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end And will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; It will certainly come And will not delay.” (Habakkuk 2 v3)


Hi Girls!

I’ve been struck recently by the timeline of the Bible. The verse above, taken from Habakkuk 2, comes after the prophet has been wrestling with God over what he sees as the all prevailing injustice and suffering in his moment in history. 

Are we speaking the truth?

Hi Gang, this is Hannah!

Sometimes a verse keeps coming up and I’m not sure why. This is the one that seems to be chasing

me right now.

1 Corinthians 2 verse 13 says “This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught us by the Spirit…”
