I SURE WAS LONELY.
I SURE WAS MEAN.
I DEFINITELY HAD A HARD TIME READING.
I SAW MY BROTHER DO A HANDSTAND, ON A SKATEBOARD, GOING DOWN A STEEP HILL.
I LOST MY GRANDPA.
I LEARNED TO SWIM.
I HAD SURGERY.
I THOUGHT I WAS DUMB.
I WANTED A TRUE FRIEND, OR EVEN A FAKE ONE.
What could you say? Those are not all true of me, but some of them are true of me.
What would your life story say?
Born with humble means, parents just getting by in finances, yet they had a strong Faith in Gods provision.
School and I did well, I found I was smart in Science and Math.
Going to college, brought great satisfaction and awareness of self.
Marriage, Children, Divorce, and finding a Mentor for my problems/issues.
Learning intellect is only one form of knowledge, finding my parents after 20 years of separation. Finding my roots are where they are for a reason, and that God is faithful after all.
This could be you, me or XYZ. What about you, what are you finding out about yourself, your family, and your values?
I found my value is in my God. IMAGO DEI
WIKI:The primary source and documentation for this concept of the essential nature of human beings is found in Genesis 1:26,27.
The term refers most fundamentally to two things: first, to God's own self-expression through humankind; and second, to God's love for humankind (John 3:16,17). To assert that humans are created in the image of God is to recognize the special qualities of human nature which allow God to be made manifest in humans. For humans to have a conscious recognition of having been made in the image of God means that they are aware of being that part of the creation through whom God's plans and purposes best can be expressed and actualized; humans, in this way, can interact creatively with the rest of creation. The moral implications of the doctrine of Imago Dei are apparent in the fact that, if humans are to love God, then humans must love other humans whom God has created (cf. John 13:35), as each is an expression of God. The human likeness to God can also be understood by contrasting it with that which does not image God.
WOW! That's some pretty important information. Is that what you believe?I do, and I do because God said it, and He is not a man, so He can't lie.
WE messed up the truth. According to how we see. Like:
- Slavery, then and now
- Ad infinitum...
Since we as humans see with human eyes/ hearts/ emotions. We need a God who see's all and loves all. He judges perfectly and justly. He says '...Vengeance is mine, I will repay..'
When you were little, and a terrible thing happen, or a good thing, God was there and was with you in Spirit. He wanted you to know He was there, but often we are not taught this Truth. We get hurt, proud, selfish and then believe God isn't near. I know it might be the hardest thing to hear, but God knows and cares.
He can and will heal broken people and situations. Life isn't like in a movie, all predictable,that's not Gods way.
His way:Unpredictable and full of Surprises, I think this is to show God and His love. Not Man and his selfishness.
When I was little...
1 Cor 13: 4-8, 11-13
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails...
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
We come to Him, like children. Just ask Him.
" Dear God,
I know I am not loving You like you want. I ask that You forgive me and help me to move forward. I repent of all the things that have separated me from You. Dear Lord, I ask that you show me Your love. I ask that you take my sins away, Jesus I believe You are God and You died for my sins. I want to be near You God, and separated no more. Thank you for Jesus, I need you God to direct my path.
In Jesus name amen.'
If you did pray, believe Jesus is God I want to let you know, that God can keep you now for the rest of your life. Write me and we can talk. God Bless you!
