Psalm 111 ~ this generation

Current Solar Flares - Great are the Works of the Lord



Psalm 111:2-10


Great are the works of the Lord,
studied by all who delight in them.
3 Full of splendor and majesty is his work,
and his righteousness endures forever.

4 He has caused his wondrous works to be remembered;
the Lord is gracious and merciful.
5 He provides food for those who fear him;
he remembers his covenant forever.

6 He has shown his people the power of his works,
in giving them the inheritance of the nations.
7 The works of his hands are faithful and just;
all his precepts are trustworthy;
8 they are established forever and ever,
to be performed with faithfulness and uprightness.

9 He sent redemption to his people;
he has commanded his covenant forever.
Holy and awesome is his name!

10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
all those who practice it have a good understanding.
His praise endures forever!



Luke 7:31-35
31 "To what then shall I compare the men of this generation, and what are they like? 32 They are like children sitting in the market place and calling to one another, `We piped to you, and you did not dance; we wailed, and you did not weep.' 33

For John the Baptist has come eating no bread and drinking no wine; and you say, `He has a demon.' 34 The Son of man has come eating and drinking; and you say, `Behold, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!' 35 Yet wisdom is justified by all her children."




Roman Catholic Network has the Daily Quote from the Early Church Fathers: The Song and Dances of the Prophets by St. Ambrose of Milan, 339-397 A.D.

"'Therefore, wisdom is justified by all her children.' 


“We have piped to you, and you have not danced.” Moses sang a song when he stopped the flow in the Red Sea for the crossing of the Jews (Exodus 15:1-18), and the same waves encircled the horses of the Egyptians and, falling back, drowned their riders. 

Isaiah sang a song of his beloved’s vineyard (Isaiah 5:1-7). 

The Hebrews sang a song when the soles of their feet grew moist at the touch of the bedewing flame, and while all burned within and without, the harmless fire caressed them alone and did not scorch (Daniel 3:19-25). 

Habakkuk also learned to assuage universal grief with a song and prophesied that the sweet passion of the Lord would happen for the faithful (Habakkuk 3:13).

The prophets sang songs with spiritual measures, resounding with prophecies of universal salvation. The prophets wept, softening the hard hearts of the Jews with sorrowful lamentations" (Isaiah 46:12)












What is Salvation? How does that occur? Jesus was telling about seeds. He never did finish the story to say if the land was tilled for the seeds to improve in the seasons. However the Psalms like 107 hint changes reveal hearts. Lord, Let Me Be One Of the Number! And you know, when you know that you know, you are a child of God Himself. Peace.


There is a good reason for Jesus not finishing the story.
Salvation just isn't to be taken lightly.

We look at St. Augustine as a saint with warts. We are all called as saints, surely we relate to the true story of Augustine with Verve! And we want to know about people we pray for in their salvation. Like TEENAGERS.

We need to consider the stages of Augustine's conversion. Not just from sin to grace but the steps he took within philosophy. Rejecting the Gospel as meaningless and the Old Testament as a God of ill humor. And becoming part of cult to a change in philosophy again. And again. Eventually meeting ill circumstance and Ambrose, who would encourage him to discussions of the Gospel. Augustine's mother prayed for him and the results were 50 years down the path.

We focus on Augustine as a sexual being. Shakespeare used the word Lightly to mean the trading of Sexual Favors. That's not entirely new this generation, yet we have seen the number of Sexually Transmitted Diseases increase from 3 to 28 and 3 can be lethal of those are quite serious unto death. Really. Diseases lead to Cancers. We pray for God to lead people to discern hearts better and wait for that person who will say I commit my life to love and care for you until you are Home with God. We pray for the Nation to connect more easily to the Person who would be for them in all seasons. In Jesus Amen.






Gently ridiculing people rarely keeps them motivated. They will determinedly move away from ridicule. We just don't see that as a tool Jesus employed. Jesus was willing, not to accept Sin, but to Love the Person. Reverend Ed Young tells of his neighbor coming out of the house shrilly screaming "Ed, you are GOING TO HELL! I've read my Bible and you need to get back to Church.!" Ed reports that he ran in the house. And was converted by his roommate Walter, saying, gently if you believe that God is knowable - then the Eternal Promise of that Love and Beauty is worth putting first. God equips us to do His Will for our lives.


Ambrose was the mentor of St. Augustine. St.Augustine was living his life very Lightly. And Salvation came to ... not the righteous, but a sinner. Ambrose loved Augustine and would have enjoyed being like Timothy to St. Paul. Like Mark to Peter. I once was told with love, the people of God are actually living with the people they worship with from here to eternity.





The Kingdom of Heaven IS AT HAND.

Today I was introduced to People who remind you of others. In appearance, in mannerisms, and the realization of knowing we are connected in God. I was taught this is a working of the Holy Spirit. He reminds us to pray for the people He places in our lives. One person who prayed with me reminded me of someone I like and has moved on. The prayer we prayed echoed the prayer I gave for her.

And today I was overcome reading about the woman with the alabaster flask. How Vast is God's love. And came home to find my college friend who is now a Priest had posted to FB the same verse. We are truly connected in His Spirit.

God is that vast to connect us with people many miles apart. Solar flairs have been proven to be part of the ionosphere connecting the electricity of lightning all over the world. God connects us for eternity. Redemption is so vast in God that Joel, Acts and Romans are millenniums apart and tell us when we Call on the Name of Jesus, we are saved.


God is so vast that our troubles and our blessings are not unknown to Him. We Trust God what we have today is from HIM and not an aberration.

All things work together for Good for those believing in the Lord. We believe so readily God is Good when we say sometimes His circle completes in Heaven. And they do. Yet surely we can say a God this Vast and Loving is capable of bringing solutions of Heaven to Earth.

Is God fussy? Jesus was known to be relaxed and at ease, sitting to teach, eating drinking. Jesus never was recorded jumping in front of people who sought Him Screaming, "What were you thinking!" Only Nicodemus received recompense for coming at night instead of openly.


I've been fortunate to be in a new Bible Study learning about answered prayer from the ministries of Judith and Francis MacNutt. They report prayer works when prayers are longer and specific. Reminding us that the Roman Empire was won with healings and answered prayers. Not pleading with God to answer prayers, but asking a Father for His loving care. His Will.

So let's pray. For our Nation to be guided in good solutions promoting us all to thrive. For our loved ones we want to know the love of Jesus, it's wonderful when our children and our loved ones walk knowing the Lord, and the Scriptures record the families that have ups and downs with faith. We pray for the health, all the good health God would give us. Grandmother Anita prayed we would drop whole into Father God's hand like a Camellia. Fruitful until God takes us Home. With mercy.

For the joy of new generations that will arrive in our families. We know this even when we do not see any evidence. For love in future in-laws. For a Family to be Loving and Whole.

I have a specific prayer about a speeding ticket for a loved one rather determined to be proved right. That peace would ensue quickly.

We open our hands to all the Blessings God would give and in the midst of "discussions" pray large prayers of tremendous blessings. And look expectantly to God for His answer and the fulfilling of His Word. In Jesus. Amen.

Psalm 92 ~ It is good to give thanks to the LORD

Matthew 5:14



Psalm 92
(New American Bible)

1
It is good to give thanks to the LORD, to sing praise to your name, Most High,
2
To proclaim your love in the morning, your faithfulness in the night,
3
With the ten-stringed harp, with melody upon the lyre.


4
For you make me jubilant, LORD, by your deeds; at the works of your hands I shout for joy.
5
How great are your works, LORD! How profound your purpose!
6
A senseless person cannot know this; a fool cannot comprehend.


7
Though the wicked flourish like grass and all sinners thrive, They are destined for eternal destruction;
8
for you, LORD, are forever on high.
9
Indeed your enemies, LORD, indeed your enemies shall perish; all sinners shall be scattered.


10
You have given me the strength of a wild bull; you have poured rich oil upon me.
11
My eyes look with glee on my wicked enemies; my ears delight in the fall of my foes.
12
The just shall flourish like the palm tree, shall grow like a cedar of Lebanon.


13
2 Planted in the house of the LORD, they shall flourish in the courts of our God.
14
They shall bear fruit even in old age, always vigorous and sturdy,
15
As they proclaim: "The LORD is just; our rock, in whom there is no wrong."


Footnotes
1 [Psalm 92] A hymn of praise and thanks for God's faithful deeds (Psalm 92:2-5).

2 [14] Planted: the just are likened to trees growing in the sacred precincts of the temple, which is often seen as the source of life and fertility because of God's presence. Cf Psalm 36:9, 10; Ezekiel 47:1-12.


It's good to give Thanks.

Thank You Father God for these Blessings:

Thanks to a son who would get up with you at four a.m. because you need his Bendadryl for a killer sinus headache. Buy you lunch. Argue with you with sincerity. And speak in a foreign language when your husband mildly fusses at you for your sweat pants. Causing you all to laugh and the vwoom sveaks a vwoeign vanguage. For rent that helps from a son and brings a housekeeper.

For the blessing of companionship of Cal to his dad. For Edward for decades of love, work, provision, support and parenting. Thanks for the loud times - sometimes people hear better at a Louder Volume. Seeing his sympathy shine when life inevitably pours out crud. For sustained health.

For going to a new Bible Study at Church on Healing with Judith and Francis MacNutt. If you don't know the name, this is truly a healing ministry where my mother's friend Pat was healed by Jesus from two medical issues that lead to blindness. For the beautiful and warm sharing in the group that required some open hearts and forgiveness. Which is why the Church is two thousand years old.

For Friends who hug you and tell you words of Love. At least three times today. For getting to pray for two best friends of the family who are experiencing a death and the prayers for God's mercy. For hearing about John, Bro-in-Law, who gave up his evening to move furnishings around for their comfort at a time of great trial. For Bill's ever present humor and strength. For New Friends. For Diligent and Loyal Friends. For Diligent Friends who work hard at communication.

For Jesus. Who gives us the Word of God showing, proclaiming that HE believes in us, sustains us, lifts us, encourages us, asks us to be who we are, causes us to want a Higher Path. Jesus who is the One who says I've gone further for you than all others - fully knowing who you are. Jesus to whom nothing is hidden. Jesus who has seen millenniums and still overcomes. Jesus who strengthens the elderly to taking card tables providing comfort to the wife who is in the crisis she feared for years. (Thanks, Mom.) Jesus who bring us new opportunities. Jesus who brings to fruitful - past events. Jesus who gives Words of Comfort that take us into Eternity.

Jesus who tells us Gratitude is needed when we really want to say ow. Because we start to get tunnel vision instead of allowing Gratitude to Lift US going UPWARD. Jesus takes your day of self-pity and when you list out your gratitudes your realize - ommm you should have done that earlier. Jesus who says Remember Your Blessings. Forgive others - their lives are hidden. Jesus is Right. Jesus Loves. Thank God. Amen.

Romans 2 ~ They show that the work of the law is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness







Romans 2

Therefore you have no excuse, O man, every one of you who judges. For in passing judgment on another you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, practice the very same things.

We know that the judgment of God rightly falls on those who practice such things. 3 Do you suppose, O man—you who judge those who practice such things and yet do them yourself—that you will escape the judgment of God? 4 Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God's kindness is meant to lead you to repentance? 5 But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God's righteous judgment will be revealed.

He will render to each one according to his works: 7
to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; 8

But for those who are self-seeking [contentious] and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury. 9 There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek,

but glory and honor and peace for everyone who does good, the Jew first and also the Greek. 

For God shows no partiality.


12 For all who have sinned without the law will also perish without the law, and all who have sinned under the law will be judged by the law. 13 For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law who will be justified.

14 For when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do what the law requires, they are a law to themselves, even though they do not have the law. 15 They show that the work of the law is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness, and their conflicting thoughts accuse or even excuse them 16 on that day when, according to my gospel,
God judges the secrets of men by Christ Jesus.


17 But if you call yourself a Jew and rely on the law and boast in God 18 and know his will and approve what is excellent, because you are instructed from the law; 19
and if you are sure that you yourself are a guide to the blind,
a light to those who are in darkness, 20
an instructor of the foolish,
a teacher of children, 
having in the law the embodiment of knowledge and truth— 21
you then who teach others, do you not teach yourself?!

While you preach against stealing, do you steal? 22 You who say that one must not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples? 23 You who boast in the law dishonor God by breaking the law. 24 For, as it is written, “The name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you.”

25 For circumcision indeed is of value if you obey the law, but if you break the law, your circumcision becomes uncircumcision. 26 So, if a man who is uncircumcised keeps the precepts of the law, will not his uncircumcision be regarded [counted] as circumcision? 27 Then he who is physically[by nature] uncircumcised but keeps the law will condemn you who have the written code[the letter] and circumcision but break the law. 28 For no one is a Jew who is merely one outwardly, nor is circumcision outward and physical. 29

But a Jew is one inwardly, and circumcision is a matter of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter. 

His praise is not from man but from God.






Romans 2 was a friend to me last Thursday afternoon, as I was reading past the required reading. This passage held my hand during a Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday of new situations, judgements, my mother's visit, my husband and son departing for Disc Golf. And a dying friend and grieving wife. And the joy of my Mother-in-law's Birthday.

God is Alive! He is Alive!
Meeting our needs when we need His Hand. God is telling us of Today.


The Holy Spirit Living in Paul spoke of receiving the Praise of God.

! Corinthians 4
1 This is how one should regard us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. 2 Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found faithful. 3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you or by any human court.

In fact, I do not even judge myself. 4 

For I am not aware of anything against myself, but I am not thereby acquitted. It is the Lord who judges me. 5 Therefore do not pronounce judgment before the time, before the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart. Then each one will receive his commendation from God.


God carries us when life is fraught in need of improvement! Thank You, Father God. Romans 2 tells us when we judge people we put a magnifying glass upon ourselves. Dr. Ed Young, of Houston's 2nd Baptist, completely explained Romans 2 on Sunday. All of Romans 2 Lived!  This was my celebrated hour watching Dr. Young's sermon. God knows our secrets and HE will judge our actions. Joel Olsteen was equally marvelous saying Take the Peace God Gives You, in paraphrase form.


I did go to Church. We always should, I had my mom visiting and we loved the Sunday programing of Churches before we left.




The INCREDIBLE GOOD NEWS is that JESUS takes our Secrets, our Sins and Covers that with His Innocence. We are washed to become White as Jesus says "I took that Sin far from you. I have given you Life." Dr. Young went on to say that the neighbor woman screaming at him over her Bible to clean up or face hell didn't do a thing for him except to go in the house. His college roommate Walter, challenged him gently that Dr. Young - a college man - was living exactly as an atheist. Walter said if you CAN KNOW GOD - that's the most precious and important aspect of Life. Eternal Life. And an atheist changed Dr. Young's life.




Romans 2 tells us we all face our own judgments and our own opinions of ourselves.

What will lift your heart is seeing an embittered heart touched by God.
This will grab your heart and lift you for some time.
Even more lifting when this is - your heart!












A Wonder of God - changes hearts and lives. And God won't stop there.
Stephen had his back prayed for. And healed. Stephen had gone to a specific place to pray, he'd heard another back had been healed.

As he told his wife, Donna, they saw glitter. Gold glitter over Steven and the floor. Gold Glitter. Glitter will cling to you. As they got in the car, the glitter was Gone. But not the Glory. God was so tickled at the Joy of Stephen - he sent him a message of Wonder from his best Pastor Bishop to Stephen's heart. You could tell the Wonder that God Loves Stephen so Much - HE is continuing to speak to Stephen. God Loves the wonder of "HE LOVES ME!" And GOD Loves to See HIS Wonders appreciated with an open heart.I was so blessed to hear of this blessing.







Seeing Kindness move people is restoring. This last week I saw a young woman reach out for the life of her younger brother's baby. When she learned that GED classes were available for free, she did agree that four people would have a GED before the next class started. Numbers were collected for two wedding ceremonies. Lives were changed and a young expectant mom said "This is A Good Place. Can we all see the ultrasound?"

God says HE will judge us on our works. These four lives reached upward to bring life forth. They said to each other - "we will remember this day for all of our lives."

Young people are making decisions to GO FORTH UPWARD in God's Plan.







Boast in God and know His will and approve what is Excellent.

Kindness moves people.

Seeing Love, a Very Devoted Wife caring for her terminally ill husband, doing all she can, hearing of their good run. Wishing they'd had more years. The Good Fight has been fought. Glory ahead. Tears today.

Seeing kindness in the Tailor, at Church, having a kind woman leap to get a door.

Having a friend come fix our 3 light switches and now they have a new skill. Thank God.

A Mother-in-Law asking for travel for a Birthday Meal. My time with my mom and her Kindnesses to me. Seeing faces of concern and care. Seeing Edward enjoy his life and talking to our son Cal. Watching Cal get out of his one room apartment. Having my mom help clean his room and get new window coverings - Surprising and pleasing Cal. Watching my son reconnect with his old friends. Having Kyle dog sit for love and seeing new maturity create peace. Getting to talk to my younger son for continuous days at college. Seeing the Gastroenteritis progressing around our area didn't eat him. He asked me for counsel to mend a disagreement. Knowing a disagreement is mended.

Seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life!

Delve into God's Goodness with Gratitude. Make lists, take names of what IS good. Jesus and Joel Olsteen will tell you.

People who are encouragers. The man at Church who said, "I'm behind you. Not to the right or the left!" Hearing God's Word held in Love will lift you for a year. Thank you.

God knew my mom was having difficulty. In a business situation. And my mother's friend Jan used to work in this area. Jan stepped in and mediated a solution. The other side of the table sent a sister. Results were found. Now, we hope Jan, to continue her blessing to my mother's very wonderful boyfriend, Jack. This was a Perfect Solution and the Timing was God's. Thank You God for Jan.


Thank You, God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we pray for the ones we love. Thank you for the results of Your love. We know to Expect you to strengthen our lives for Your glory. Bless us as we go forth in Jesus Christ. Let Your will and plan for our lives be instructed through Wonders and Mercy. Let us be led by you to be effective and pleasing to You. We want to always Hear from You Father God. Blessings to YOU for Jesus. Amen.

Isaiah 12 ~ His Name is exalted




Isaiah 12

You will say in that day:
“I will give thanks to you, O LORD,
for though you were angry with me,
your anger turned away,
that you might comfort me.

2 “Behold, God is my salvation;
I will trust, and will not be afraid;
for the LORD GOD is my strength and my song,
and he has become my salvation.”

3 With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. 

And you will say in that day:

“Give thanks to the LORD,
call upon his name,
make known his deeds among the peoples,
proclaim that his name is exalted!
5 “Sing praises to the LORD, for he has done gloriously;
let this be made known in all the earth.

6 Shout, and sing for joy,
O inhabitant of Zion,
for great in your midst
is the Holy One of Israel.”




Montgomery County, Texas has a reputation for kindness to Hispanic aliens. We have a bounty of Jesus Christ believing and The Word of God honoring Churches. The Police Department has a very good reputation and deals with teenagers - a lot. Our crime rates are on the low side. And we saw the indictment of Adrian Peterson, the Minnesota Vikings star running back, who was indicted on an injury to a child charge here in Montgomery County on Thursday. This is Texas and we tend to be more loud and Republican in this county than liberal.

The District Attorney feels the evidence before the Grand Jury is compelling and he said wait for the trial. Good advice. We pray for Adrian Peterson and his entire family to have merciful justice and heal very well in the Power of God.


James 1:19
This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God.

God is Vast. He just doesn't have to worry if we throw a fit.

How do you deal with someone throwing a tantrum? Depends.

Jesus mentions something Very Wise in Luke 3:7 - flee from wrath. Get the heck out! Out of the way of wrath!

The Holy One writes about having a healthy approach to anger - Be Angry.







Ephesians 4:26
Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger.

I like the fact God says we are allowed to have emotions. Honesty in Scripture.

The State of Texas does not have a problem with spanking with an open hand. The parental discipline generally concerning CPS, or the Police, is the type leaving a mark and/or causes worry of future injury.

What does God, the Holy One, say about this? Let's list a few:

Proverbs 22:6
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Ephesians 6:4
Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.

Proverbs 22:15
Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline drives it far from him.

(Hey, I grew up with "Go pick a peach tree switch and make that snappy.")









Our Boundaries fall in here:

Proverbs 3:12
Because the LORD disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in.
AKA The Golden Rule

Deuteronomy 8:5
Know then in your heart that as a man disciplines his son, so the LORD your God disciplines you.

Luke 12:48
The one who did not know,
and did what deserved a beating, will receive a light beating.
Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required,
and from him to whom they entrusted much, they will demand the more.










WORD. God created Jesus from His Word.

Jesus was known to ask Peter - in his sin  - three times for explanations. John 21. Jesus, also, is recorded as explaining his death three times.

My brother does this with his children to great effect. He repeats back to them in complete effort and sincerity their concerns before he explains a different way - what is required and expected. He is Really Good at this.

Paul VERY WELL understood about the third effort as well...

2 Corinthians 12:14
Here for the third time I am ready to come to you. And I will not be a burden, for I seek not what is yours but you. For children are not obligated to save up for their parents, but parents for their children.









Goliath Pottery discovered in his city Gath

We do not dish out what we would not want to receive! What would you want someone, twice your height, giving to you?

In practical terms, we need a Bumper Sticker.
David met the Giant Goliath and had to pull out three smooth stones. Today - We do make a bumper sticker about that - It's seen a lot. Explaining Goliath - "Be Nice to Your Children, They Will Choose Your Nursing Home."








Now you might ask - is that bumper sticker Scripture?

Yes. It's basic Scripture. Jesus said -

Matthew 5:7
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.

We are big in Texas on childhood - "Time Out."
If you get quiet time to think, you have time to reorganize the child's emotion.

Rarely, then, a spanking, a memorable event - a time to consider - is more important. My daddy sent us to have thirty minutes in our rooms to consider the swats about to arrive. Egad. With the provision he always said - "When I calm down, you are getting x number of swats, go to your room." Daddy would explain that parental swats had to be accompanied by lack of anger or rage.

Swats ranged from three to ten - depending on the severity of the disobedience. Standing is the preferable position for swats.

That makes so much sense, there has to be honest Scripture to encourage that - AND - there is:

Job 35
13 Surely God does not hear an empty cry,
nor does the Almighty regard it.
14 How much less when you say that you do not see him,
that the case is before him, and you are waiting for him!
15 And now, because his anger does not punish,
and he does not take much note of transgression,


When my father calmed down - occasionally and rarely - Daddy would say -
With my Shouts of Joy - The Parental Words "I changed my mind, come talk to me about this."


And is this Scripture? Of Course. Mercy.

2 Samuel 24:14
Then David said to Gad, “I am in great distress. Let us fall into the hand of the LORD, for his mercy is great; but let me not fall into the hand of man.”


Amen and amen. Let us look to God for the same mercy David knew in Father God. Blessing God for His Grace. Thank You God. Let us take the same time, Father God, in our considerations before our mouth opens and our actions are displayed. AMEN!

Esther 2 ~ suggested


Tomb of Xerxes - it is an interesting shape

Xerxes (Ahasuerus), the Persian King featured in the movie "300" & video games Assassin's Creed and Civilization II & III. In 484 BC, 

Xerxes abolished the Kingdom of Babel and took away the golden statue of Bel. The above photo is Xerxes Cuneiform: "Ahuramazda is the great god, the greatest god who created the sky and created the land and created humans Who gave prosperity to the humans Who made Xerxes king King of many kings, being the only ruler of the totality of all lands. I am Xerxes, the great king"

I just like the Man. I think he might be the parallel of Yul Brynner in "The King and I".



Esther 2 ~ (New American Bible)



1
After this, when King Ahasuerus' wrath had cooled, he thought over what Vashti had done and what had been decreed against her.
2
Then the king's personal attendants suggested: "Let beautiful young virgins be sought for the king.
3
Let the king appoint commissaries in all the provinces of his realm to bring together all beautiful young virgins to the harem in the stronghold of Susa. Under the care of the royal eunuch Hegai, custodian of the women, let cosmetics be given them.
4
Then the girl who pleases the king shall reign in place of Vashti." This suggestion pleased the king, and he acted accordingly.


5
There was in the stronghold of Susa a certain Jew named Mordecai, son of Jair, son of Shimei, son of Kish, a Benjaminite,
6
who had been exiled from Jerusalem with the captives taken with Jeconiah, king of Judah, whom Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, had deported.
7
He was foster father to Hadassah, that is, Esther, his cousin; for she had lost both father and mother. The girl was beautifully formed and lovely to behold. On the death of her father and mother, Mordecai had taken her as his own daughter.
8
When the king's order and decree had been obeyed and many maidens brought together to the stronghold of Susa under the care of Hegai, Esther also was brought in to the royal palace under the care of Hegai, custodian of the women.
9
The girl pleased him and won his favor. So he promptly furnished her with cosmetics and provisions. Then picking out seven maids for her from the royal palace, he transferred both her and her maids to the best place in the harem.

10
Esther did not reveal her nationality or family, for Mordecai had commanded her not to do so.
11
Day by day Mordecai would walk about in front of the court of the harem, to learn how Esther was faring and what was to become of her.
12
Each girl went in turn to visit King Ahasuerus after the twelve months' preparation decreed for the women. Of this period of beautifying treatment, six months were spent with oil of myrrh, and the other six months with perfumes and cosmetics.
13
Then, when the girl was to visit the king, she was allowed to take with her from the harem to the royal palace whatever she chose.
14
She would go in the evening and return in the morning to a second harem under the care of the royal eunuch Shaashgaz, custodian of the concubines. She could not return to the king unless he was pleased with her and had her summoned by name.
15
As for Esther, daughter of Abihail and adopted daughter of his nephew Mordecai, when her turn came to visit the king, she did not ask for anything but what the royal eunuch Hegai, custodian of the women, suggested. Yet she won the admiration of all who saw her.


16
Esther was led to King Ahasuerus in his palace in the tenth month, Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign.
17
The king loved Esther more than all other women, and of all the virgins she won his favor and benevolence. So he placed the royal diadem on her head and made her queen in place of Vashti.
18
Then the king gave a great feast in honor of Esther to all his officials and ministers, granting a holiday to the provinces and bestowing gifts with royal bounty.
19
[To resume: From the time the virgins had been brought together, and while Mordecai was passing his time at the king's gate,


20
Esther had not revealed her family or nationality, because Mordecai had told her not to; and Esther continued to follow Mordecai's instructions, just as she had when she was being brought up by him.
21
And during the time that Mordecai spent at the king's gate, Bagathan and Thares, two of the royal eunuchs who guarded the entrance, had plotted in anger to lay hands on King Ahasuerus.
22
When the plot became known to Mordecai, he told Queen Esther, who in turn informed the king for Mordecai.
23
The matter was investigated and verified, and both of them were hanged on a gibbet. This was written in the annals for the king's use.]


This is the king portrayed in modern movies, like "300", and video war games as ruthless and wholly corrupt. The Scriptures show a lot of suggestions are made to the king all the time, but the chapter begins with Xerxes re-thinking his actions.

 This is a man favored with God's help, a plot against him is averted by his choice of new queen & the queen's family. One of the major Scriptural themes in this book, God does not desert the people faithful to Him, and all of His works forward His Plan.

Father God, bless us each day that our words and our work may further Your plans. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Mark 10:17-27 ~ Journey







Mark 10:17-27

17 As He was setting out on a journey, a man ran up to Him and knelt before Him, and asked Him, “Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” 18 And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone. 19 You know the commandments, ‘Do not murder, Do not commit adultery, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Do not defraud, Honor your father and mother.’” 20 And he said to Him, “Teacher, I have kept all these things from my youth up.” 21 Looking at him, Jesus felt a love for him and said to him, “One thing you lack: go and sell all you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” 22 But at these words he was saddened, and he went away grieving, for he was one who owned much property.





Don't you just hate it when there is no possible way to attain what Jesus said. And that Jesus. Always on a journey. Where is He when you need Him?




Jesus really did journey a lot. Three times they rowed and sailed across Galilee. In a day. Sixteen miles times three. Sheesh that Jesus. What a traveler. Om. Jesus really had someone to see. And you'd think, being God and all, that HE would say "Stan - well, I AM will see you on the east side at nine. Fred - east side ten o'clock. Sharp. And Hugo - you are on the west side so - well, babe, if I have to come to you, well, then, I have to. "

Jesus. What a traveler. First He's speaking to people, then praying, then "on the water." Then IN the water. 

Jesus. If you can't ASPIRE TO HIS STANDARDS - He might just sit with you.





Or if you need healing, He might just draw you out of the large crowd and speak with you privately.




In Grief? He might go to your house and into the bed chamber.




Jesus traveled. A lot. And does today. The Word of God IS Living and Active.

That young fellow with good deeds? Jesus just journeyed on.






Galatians 6:9
And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.

Jeremiah 17:10
“I the Lord search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.”

23 And Jesus, looking around, *said to His disciples, “How hard it will be for those who are wealthy to enter the kingdom of God!” 24 The disciples were amazed at His words. But Jesus *answered again and *said to them, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! 25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” 26 They were even more astonished and said to Him, “[b]Then who can be saved?” 27 Looking at them, Jesus *said, “With people it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.”




The Word is Living and Active. God says the Word of God has attributes
Gospel of peace
Stand firm
Belt of truth
Breastplate of righteousness
Shield of faith








The Word of God, as we read - we should be praying at all times in the Spirit, with supplication. 

To that end keep alert with all perseverance Read Your Bible For Other People, making supplication for all the saints.

Seek and You Shall Find.

God is still Working and Jesus with Him.

Days will come when you can not attain to the forgiveness that takes a 12 foot vertical jump. Yet the Word of God is prophetic. Then you greet Jesus like Mary and Martha did. Doing your earnest best.




And Like Jesus you keep journeying in the Word. Because Jesus will go where you are. You just have to attain the point where you have looked in earnest sincerity of complete endeavor. In plain speak, keep reading God's Word - you will find the comfort you need.

As He was setting out on a journey, a man ran up to Him and knelt before Him, and asked Him
