change makers

“You can’t get through a single day with out having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of a difference you want to make,” Jane Goodall.

The kind of difference we make is best accomplished as follows, “While we do not look at things which are seen, but at things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal; “Have I not told commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” (cp. Joshua 4:18; 2 Corinthians 4:18).

So then, we can all become difference makers. Help comes from the unseen called Divine Providence. Diverse, and always unique, especially tailored for the Christ follower.

Around two days ago (cp. 2 Peter 3:8), John saw seven golden lampstands and in the midst of the seven lampstands stood Jesus, referred to as the Son of Man.

Clothed uniquely, and characterized as One whom one should avoid getting on His bad side.

John also saw seven stars held high in His right hand. Seeing what could be the militarization of a combat tested ready deity.  His complete demeanor was frightful emitting an aurora of one to be feared. All this to much for John scared for his life, he fell at His feet as dead.

Unexpectedly, He placed Right hand on John’s shoulder and said to him, “Don’t be afraid, I am the First and the Last. I am He who lives, and was dead. And behold I am alive forever more, Amen!” “And I have the keys to Hades (hell) and of death!” (cp. Revelation 1:12-18).

Jesus expanding upon the seven stars, and the seven golden lampstands declared, “The mystery of the seven stars which you saw, and the seven golden lampstands. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the lampstands which you saw are the seven churches.” (cp. Revelation 1:20)

Verse 13 informes us that the one in the midst of the lampstands was Jesus Christ flanked by angels, v. 20.

That was then, so what about the now? Ephesians 1:22, tells us that God appointed Jesus to be the head of the church (you and me). Which is the fullness of Him (the Father) who satisfies all in one.

Some things are timeless, so lets take a journey back in history to the Chronicles where we have this recorded, “The eyes of the LORD run to and fro through out the whole earth, to show Himself strong in behalf of those heart is loyal to Him.”

We know that those stars are symbolic to angels often used by God to serve His interest like you and me. So this is recorded for us, “Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister to those who will inherit salvation?” (cp. Hebrews 1:14).

For He shall give His angels charge over you. To keep you in all your ways. They shall bear you up with their hands. Lest you dash your foot against a stone.” (cp. Psalms 91:11-12).

Experience is a great teacher, and this Padre, can attest to having had multiple angelic experiences. Remember that angles are His ambassadors sent to aid us as necessary. They are not to be worshiped because worship is reserves only for our Creator and Redeemer.

Not one of us? Join our Christ family by following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. And then notice verses 11-13, as they create the universality so many seek. And if our paths don’t meet in this world, they will in the next.

Heavens Bounty

All things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation. (cp. 2 Corinthians 5:18).

Troublesome times for all of us, and it appears its only going to get worse. Scary indeed, but not for those of us, who have experienced His reconciliation through Jesus. From that experience emerges the urge for wanting others to join us. But how, arises the question within us.

It’s pretty simple because the only prerequisite is for you to be you. Someone said, “Silence speaks the loudest.” And there is a scripture that shows us how. Given to Paul, who recorded the following, “Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those of faith and those who are not.” (cp. 2 Corinthians 2:14-15).

What a privilege, God Almighty, who had declared that He doesn’t need anyone in order to accomplish His counsel and purpose. (cp. Isaiah 46: 9-10).

Jesus said, “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from or where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” (cp. John 3:8).

Now then, we are all ambassadors for Christ. It’s as though God is pleading through us be that fragrance for the betterment of society. (cp. 2 Corinthians 5:20).

Just think someday someone will know that God made Him, who new no sin to be sin for them. So that they could become righteous in the sight of God through Christ because of you and me. (cp. 2 Corinthians 5:21).

a history maker

“Our confidence in Christ does not make us lazy, negligent or careless. On the contrary it awakens us, urges us on, and makes us active in living righteous lives and doing good,” Ulrich Zwingle.

Ulrich was one of several 16th century church reforemers. Who fought the darkness of catholicism, often experiencing a brutal torturous death. Usually tied to a stake with easily ignitablede substances. Slowly ignited so as to lenghten suffering before death claimed another saint.

They died because they declared, Salvation is of grace. The Innocent One is condemned and the criminal is acquittted. it is the cross of Christ alone that opens the gates of heaven, and shuts the gates of hell.”

History sheds much light upon the willing suffering of others, for the benifit of one generation to the next.

There are so many ways for us today to live and pass on those truths today. Often it’s just by the way we live from one day to the next. “Thanks be to God, who always leads us to triumph in Christ. And through us, diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ everywhere we go, and among all people that we come into contact with.” (cp. 2 Corinthians 2:14-15, with minor exegesis).

mind over matter

Helen Keller was the first deaf-blind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. She must have been a person with an extraordinary inner substance to coordinate such a feat. Most of us blessed with hearing and sight clearly understand, that earning university is rigorous journey.

And that includes all people who persevere to earn a college degree. Including everyone who persues higher education out of the university.

Ms. Keller made the following comments which most likely are the voices of her inner substance.

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all. The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched. They must be felt with the heart. I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light. When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but we look so long at the closed door, that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.

Ms. Keller after earning her degree lead a productive life. She authored a number of books, was a activists in her community and was a lecturer in demand.

Maybe Helen was a beneficary of the following. “The eyes of the LORD run to an fro through out the earth, to show himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.” (cp. 2 Chronicles 16:9).

Which may have led to the following, “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has entered into the heart of people the things God has prepared for those who love him.” (cp. 1 Corinthians 2:9).

when all fails try again

“You are the master of your own destiny. You can influence, direct and control your own environment. You can make your own life what you want it to be. Should defeat occur, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward that coveted goal,” Napolean Hill.

Best way: A persons heart plans their way, but the LORD directs their steps, Proverbs 16:9.

Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast to your integrity? Curse God and die!” He replied, “You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept good from God and not trouble?” Job 2:9-10.

The steps of good people are ordered by the LORD. And he delights in their way. Should they fall, they shall not be utterly cast down. For the LORD, upholds them with Hid hands, Psalms 37:23-24.

The rebound: Trust in the LORD and do good. Dwell in the land and feel His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the LORD, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD. And, He shall bring it to pass, Psalms 37:3-5.

getting the job done

“What the mind can conceive and believe, and the heart desire. You can achive. Change your thoughts and change the world,” Norman Vincent Peale.

Norman Vincent Peale, was perhaps the twentieth centuries greatest motivator. True or not, it doesn’t matter. Because they were all secondary to the first centuries motivators. Who were motivated to write inspirationally by the greatest motivator of them all, Devine Provodence. With that motivational influence having been passed on to us.

The eyes of the LORD run to and fro though out the whole earth to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose hearts are loyal to Him. (cp. 2 Chronicles 16:9).

Therefore, we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works which God prepared before hand that we should walk in them. (cp. Ephesians 2:10).

Now to Him who is able to do all above all that we ask or think according to the power that works within us. (cp. Ephesians 3:20).

But as it is writen, eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have enterd into the heart of anyone the things God has prepared for those who love Him. (cp. 1 Corinthians 2:9).

For where there is no motivation by the visionaries, the people perish.

the package

Be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Talk health, happiness, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet. Make all your friends feel that there is something special in them. Look at the sunny side of eveything. Think only the best, be as enthusiastic about the success of others as about your own.

Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to greater achievements of the future. Give everyone a smile. Spend so much improving yourself that you no time left to criticize others. Be to big for worry and to noble for anger,” Norman Vincent Peale.

Spirituality is very different from humanality. Humanality relies solely upon a disciplined mind. As does the person of spirituality, but with this advantaged.

It goes as follows, “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who lives, but Christ lives in me. And the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” (cp. Galatians 2:20).

The whole experience can’t be humanly intelactualized. It must be spiritualized. The presences of Jesus lies dormant in us, until we are “Born Again.” That occure through Romans 10:9-10. So if, that has been your experience rejoice. If not follow the prompts within those verses. Which reads, “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved (Born Again). For with the heart one belives unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. And by that act by faith believing, Christ is no longer dormant in your live.

Here is the promise that Christ is alive in you. “For the scriptures says, ‘Whoever believes on Him shall not be but to shame. For whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.'” (cp. Romans 10:11;13).

Then greet the world as advised by, Norman Vincent Peale, and the Apostle Paul, “Now thanks be to God who always leads us triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in everyplace. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those saved and those who are perishing.” (cp. 2 Corinthians 2:14-15).

secrets of longevity

“The body is the soul’s house. Shouldn’t we therefore take care of our house, so that it doesn’t fall into ruin?” Philo of Alexandria 25 BC.

Seems that Divine Providence shared a similar mind set with Philo, but with a serious extension. For He compelled Paul to write, “What! “Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own. For you were bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.

From birth, this our destiny, “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. Since our days are determined, the number of our months are with You. You have appointed our limits, and we shall not pass them. (cp. Psalms 90:12; Job 14:5).

So here are a few suggestions for maximizing those days. Eat foods that are as close to nature as possible, mostly a vegan diet. Add bee pollen and organic cacao powder it’s rich potassium, magnesium and other key nutrients. Exercise and get sufficient sleep. Avoid tap water! Be sure your water is filtered.

Make it a habit to study your Bible. Especially Romans – Philemon because they the Biblical books for this historical age. Ages change creating new histories. This age will have closure like all other ages have had. The next age will be horrifying, and will result with the creation of a new earth by Divine Providence.

be a cultural designer

“I know that God exists! I know that I have never invented anything. I have been a medium by which these things were given to the culture, as fast, as the culture could learn them,” Philo of Alexandria 25 BC.

Pleaded the Psalmist: “Oh, that people would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness, for His wonderful works through His people. For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness. (cp. Psalms 107:8-9).

A state of prayerful worship: Bless the LORD, O my soul; and all that lives within me bless His Holy name. Bless the LORD O my soul, and forget not all His benefits. For He has forgiven all my sins, who has healed all my spiritual diseases, who has redeemed my life from destruction, who crowns me with loving kindness and tender mercies, who satisfies my mouth with good things (Proverbs 24:14), so that my body regains its youth like that of an eagle. (cp. Psalms 103:1-5 with exegesis).

Proverbs 24:13, My son eat honey because it is good, and the honeycomb which is sweet to your taste, so shall be the knowledge of wisdom be to your soul. Exegesis: From the honeycomb bee pollen is extracted. Bee pollen is considered to be a miracle food for good health. “Because the human body has twenty-two elements which are found only in one food – bee pollen. When bee pollen enters our digestive system, its twenty-two elements immediately start to regulate and invigorate metabolism by supplying any missing substance, such as enzymes not provided by other foods. Pollen elements then help control the destructive reaction of toxins, pollutants and drugs. They shield the from the assault that may cause premature aging and loss of precious years of life. As such, the pollen elements rejuvenate the body cells and add more vigorous years to your allotted time.” Source: Bee Pollen and Your Health, Carlson Wade, page forty two, published 1978).

The Psalmist also wrote, “Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom, and from Job, “Since their days are determined. The number of their months are with You. You have appointed their limits, so that they cannot pass them.” (cp. Psalms 90:12; Job 14:5). So live life with vigor which can only be enjoyed from a healthy body.

That body is picturesque of the magnificent eagle. Known for its intelligence, speed in flight, its eyesight and strength. Renowned also for its faithfulness to its mate. Thus the Psalmist through Divine Providence compare the well taken care of the human body to that of an eagle which has the appearance of being agelessness.

simple truths

“There is nothing in the world more difficult than truth, and nothing easier than than flattery. If there is a hundredth of a fraction of a false note in truth, it immediately produces conflicting opinions. But in flattery, even if everything is false down to the last note, it’s still pleasant, and people will listen knowing better, but nevertheless they will listen,” Fyodor Dostoevsky.

Good advice concerning truth and flattery. Let another person praise and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own mouth. A stone is heavy and sand is weighty, but a fool’s wrath is heavier than both of them. (cp. Proverbs 27:2-3).

Open rebuke is better than love carefully concealed. Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful. (cp. Proverbs 27:5-6).

simplified journey

“Only to live, to live and live! People have it all in their hands, and if it all slips through their their fingers its from sheer cowardice!” Fyodor Dostoevsky.

Sheer cowardice, maybe so maybe not! But for certain drill the following Pauline admonitions deep into ones consciousness.

“Now thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among  everyone. Those who are a part of the Christ family and those who are not.

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared before hand that we should walk in them.

Now to Him, who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us.

(cp. 2 Corinthians 2:14-15; Ephesians 2:10 and Ephesians 3:20).

But, with two very necessary ingredients. If we hope for what we not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

(cp. Romans 8:25; Hebrews 11:1).

the satisfied life

“Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, expect little give much, scatter sunshine, forget self, think of others. Try this for a week and you’ll be surprised,” Norman Vincent Peale.

Teacher, what is your best advice? Jesus: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind. That is My best advice. That will allow you to love your neighbor as you love yourself. Those two idioms are world changers. (cp. Matthew 22:36-39).

Now thanks be to God, who always leads us to triumph in Christ. And through us reveals the fragrance of His knowledge in everyplace. For we are to God, the fragrance of Christ among all people, whether Christian or not. (cp. 2 Corinthians 2:15-16).

Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content in it. I know how to be humbled, and I also know how to abound. In Everywhere and in all things. I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to be in need, Because, I can do all things through Christ who strengths me. (cp.Philippians 4:11-13).

How is all the aforementioned accomplished by discipline and dependence. When we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.

Likewise the Spirit also helps with our weaknesses. Because we do not know how to pray as we should. So the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with expressions which cannot be understood.

Now He who searches the heart knows what the mind of the Spirit is. Because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

Therefore, we know that all things work together for good for those who love God. To those, who are doing what He purposes. (cp. Romans 8:25-28).

The contrast between Peale, and the Matthew’ and the Paul’ is that one is based upon human ingenuity, and the latter completely outside of human ingenuity.

One is within the realm of the Soul, or human consciousness. While the other is of the Spirit, ones God awareness by experience. Like a new born child one grows from spiritual infancy to adult spiritual maturity. It’s not an over night experience and unfortunately, few attain adult spirituality, or the world would be very different.

Albert Camus

“The only way to deal with an unfair world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion,” Alfred Camus.

Easily said, but difficult to attain, so here are some tips for progress in that direction.

“If I take care of my character, my reputation will take care of itself. Because, they who kneel the most stand the best chance. The Bible was not given for our information but for our transformation,” D.L. Moody.

And learning that walk, which takes a lot of the aforementioned. Blessed are the people who walk not in the counsel of society, nor mimic the ways of humanity. Nor have ambition to be seated among those who have authority.

Instead their ambition is to absorb the ways taught through out the scriptures.

And as progress is made, they shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water. That brings forth its fruit in its season. They shall not know exhaustion or defeat. And whatsoever they do, shall prosper! Exegesis for critical thinking of Psalms 1:1-3.

angels and beyond

“I can calculate the motion of the heavenly bodies, but not the madness of people, What we know is a drop in the bucket, what we don’t know is an ocean,” Sir Isaac Newton.

That is why people should study the Bible from a hermeneutics exegesis point of view. Meaning a biblical study of theological principles. Because the Bible serves as food for ones body, and nourishment for ones bones. (cp. Proverbs 3:8). Thus being able to calculate the madness of people.

And enjoy, extraordinary experiences like the following. The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them. Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good. Blessed are the ones who trusts in Him! Oh, fear the LORD, you His saints!

There is no want to those who fear Him. The young lions lack and suffer hunger, but those who seek the LORD shall not lack any good thing. Come you people listen to me (King David). I will teach you to hear the LORD.

Who are the people who desire life, and loves many days that they may see good? Keep your tongue from evil, and your lips from speaking deceit, Depart from evil and do good. Seek peace and pursue it. The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous. cp. Psalms 34:7-15).

Remember, The eyes of the LORD run to and fro through out the whole earth, to show himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. (cp. 2 Chronicles 16:9).

This writer is not there yet, but substantial progress has been, or this discussion would never have been launched.

Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister to those who will inherit salvation. (cp. Hebrews 1:14).

He shall give His angels charge over you. To keep you in all your ways. They shall bear you up with their hands lest you dash your feet against a stone. (cp. Psalms 91:11-12)

Do not forget to entertain strangers, for some by so doing have unwittingly entertained angels. (cp. Hebrews 13:2).

flip side of existentialism

“There is no human nature, since there is no god to conceive it. Still, somewhere in the depth of ourselves, we all harbor an unsatisfied  thoughtful sadness that quietly awaits a funeral,” Jean Paul Sartre.

Sartre, and all other existentialist, think people are entirely responsible for what they make of themselves. Existentialism is wrapped up in truth as well as falsehoods. Which of course is the curse of being a mortal being.

First of all, God created the firsts humans male and female. And in His own image, and then gave them global authority. (cp. Genesis 1:27-28). With so few words, we have proof for our natures. Contrary to Sartre’s existential arguments.

Human ingenuity which is the never ending drive for human advancement. It’s so prevalent that its taken for granted. Like a cure for COVID-19 pandemic. God could have given that charge to any other non-human species.

Simply because He is God! He has no boundaries or limitations. This is clearly established when He Had Isaiah write. “I am the LORD, that is My name, and My glory, I will not give to another. Nor My praise to carved images [existentialism]. Behold the former things have come to pass, and new things I declare [human ingenuity], before they spring forth, I declare, before they spring forth I tell you of them.” (cp. Isaiah 42:8-9).

The above aforementioned is in dispute between existentialists and creationists. But what is not in dispute is death. Sartre unsettling  concession concerning the funeral experience is a God instilled reminder concerning death. James put it this way, “Come now, you say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit. But tomorrow may be very different from what is expected. For life is but a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes.” (cp. James 4:13-14).

One way or another, we all know, “The days of our lives are seventy years, and by reason of strength they are eighty, your boast is only labor and sorrow, for it is soon cut off, and we fly away” (cp. Psalms 90:10).

Both the existentialist and creationist will experience death. But there is life after death. And the outcomes are very different. But that differences is for another discussion.

This writer is a creationist but is thankful for certain aspects of existentialism. Which is the utilization of the mind in conjunction with God for the now and future.

Here is one of those thoughts that can’t be learned. It comes by experience, and it’s about knowing the short comings of existentialism and the strengths of inward creationism. “We do not lose heart even though our outward self is dying, yet the inward self being renewed.” (cp. 2 Corinthians 4:16).

Here’s an account about life before being in our mothers womb. “My frame was not hidden from you, when  I was made in secret. And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. For your eyes saw my substance being yet unformed. And in Your book they are all written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them,” Psalms 139:15-16).

Then our parents came together, as miracles in themselves. Through the oneness of God’s purpose for them and us. “For You formed my inward parts, You covered me in my mothers womb. I will praise you, for I am wonderfully made, marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.” ( cp. Psalms 139:13-14).

For the true creationist, both birth, and death should be celebrations.

“Man is nothing else but what he makes of himself,” Jean Paul Sartre.

But that experience is greatly enhanced in and through Jesus Christ. And this how it’s done, “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus [That you are a sinner] and that you believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” For the scriptures says, ‘Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.'” (cp. Romans 10:9-11).

It doesn’t matter who you are by race, creed, nationality, gender or what one has done, or failed to do. In other words His saving grace is all inconclusive.

Supported with these scriptures. For there is no distinction between people. For the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For whoever calls upon the name of the Lord  shall be saved. (cp. Romans 10:12-13).

There are no rituals. All the above may seem to some so very complicated. Here is the simplicity of that experience. It’s discovered by taking a journey back to the two criminals on crosses with Jesus. Jesus was in the middle of them.

One of the criminals mocked Jesus saying, “If you are the Christ save Yourself and us!” But the other, answering, rebuked him saying, “Do you not fear God, seeing you are under the same condemnation? And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds, but this Man has done nothing wrong.” Then he said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your Kingdom!” Jesus said to him, “Assuredly I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise!” (cp. Luke 23:39-43).

It was over for that criminal for he had been crucified and was dying. But for you, you have a tomorrow. It can start by applying those verses from the book of Romans. Or you simplify your life altering experience by following the example of the condemned criminal.

What happened on that cross is that he believed with his heart, Romans 10:9-11 and also experienced verses 12-13).

With the heart one believes and with the mouth confession is made. That’s when such people can really reach, Sartre’s admonition.

It’s the will of God that we all attain our personal potential. It doesn’t mean greatness, it means being faithful. It’s recorded as follows, “We are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works. Which God prepared, beforehand that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10).

a better us

“In normal life we hardly realize how much more we receive than we give, and life cannot be rich without such gratitude. It is so easy to over estimate the importance of our own achievements compared with what we owe to the help of others,” Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Letters from Prison.

There is something seemingly magical about gratitude from the way it makes us feel. Most likely because gratitude is ordained by Divine Providence. Through out the Bible gratitude is a major theme. Like the recording found in Philippians 4:6-7, Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your request be made to God. And the peace of God which surpasses  all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

It’s all tied together with this plea. Oh that everyone would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness for His wonderful works among the people. For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness. (cp. Psalms 103:8-9).

Leading to this kind of life. For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro through  the whole earth to show Himself strong in behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. (cp. 2 Chronicles 16:9).

And achieving this acknowledgement, form their Creator. The steps of good people are ordered by the LORD. And He delights in their way. Though they should fall, they will not be utterly cast down. For the LORD upholds them with His hands. (cp. Psalms 39:23-24).

“At bottom every person knows well enough that they are a unique being, only once on this earth; and by no extraordinary chance will such a marvelously picturesque piece of diversity in unity as their’s. Will ever be put together a second time,” Frirdrich Nietzsche.

Qualifying Nietzsche’s awareness: How special are each and every one of us? This special. For You formed my inward parts. You formed me in my mother’s womb. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in your book they were all written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there was none of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!” (cp. Psalms 139:11-13; 16-17).

For I the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future of hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when yous search for Me with your whole heart. (cp. Jeremiah 29: 11-13).
