It is my belief that deep within each of us is a Power to be used for the good of all as indicated by the following people including me.
You are never given a wish without also being given the Power to make it come true. Richard Bach
Never measure God’s unlimited Power by your limited expectations. Our Daily Bread 2010
Call on the Power inherent in you…(My poem, All Things are Possible)
The beginning of Power is consciously opening our minds to God and being receptive to his presence, his spirit, his voice and his will. Charles L. Allen
For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of Power and love and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7
And then there is the poem I wrote in 1998:
THE POWER OF YOU
If you would be more powerful
release your ego
let it soar
let the roar of you subside,
see the power of you
to empower others.
Our Power is not to be mistaken for the power wielded by those who use and abuse it because they feel basically powerless in their own right. That power is actually a weakness.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty Power. Ephesians 6:10
I’m always interested in what others think of God and so it is that I convey the thoughts of some top thinkers today.
The beginning of power is consciously opening our minds to God and being receptive to his presence, his spirit, his voice and his will. Charles L. Allen
To know God is to live. Leo Tolstoy
Never measure God’s unlimited power by your limited expectations. (Our Daily Bread Magazine 2010)
When we hear the sound of silence it is imperative to stop and listen. It comes in the form of stillness. It comes to everyone at one time or another; the key is to be aware and allow it to unfold.
Silence is the element in which great things fashion themselves together; that at length they may emerge, full-formed and majestic, into the delight of life, which they are thenceforth to rule. Thomas Carlyle
Mother Theresa said: “The most important thing is silence. We cannot place ourselves directly in God’s presence without imposing upon ourselves interior and exterior silence.”
And Simon and Garfunkel had this to say about the Sound of Silence. Happy Saturday.
There are so many arguments about God and science, the premise being that science can be proved and God cannot. This brings me to the conclusion that God is the ultimate Scientist and we are the proof.
It reminds me of that old saying, ‘the proof is in the pudding’. This is said to mean the proof of the pudding is in the eating which is also said to mean that you can only judge the quality of something after you have tried, used or experienced it. (Internet May 27, 2020)
I choose to believe I am a child of God rather than a tadpole and that the ultimate Scientist taught earthly scientists everything they know.
A neurosurgeon once stated that the brain is the artwork of God.
Take Stephen Hawking, renowned scientist who was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS) in 1963 at the age of 21. Mr. Hawking’s life expectancy at that time was two years and yet he was seventy-six when he died in 2018.
Hawking once wrote that achieving a theory of everything would be the ultimate triumph of human reason…for then we should know the mind of God. (A Brief History of Time).
A self proclaimed Atheist, Stephen Hawking, to my mind, was living proof that God is the ultimate scientist.
The difference between doing right or wrong could, and often does lead to death. But do the perpetrators actually know the difference? I don’t think so because I don’t want to believe that humans can be that callous and cruel.
Here are a few quotes on doing what’s right:
Do what is right, not what is easy. Roy T. Bennett
The truth of the matter is that you always know the right thing to do. The hard part is doing it. Norman Schwarzkopf
Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching. C.S. Lewis
Knowing what’s right doesn’t mean much unless you do what’s right. Theodore Roosevelt
Two wrongs don’t make a right.
You can’t do wrong by doing right.
Here is a little quote that just came my way. I love it! The wind does talk; the silence does speak; and your heart? Yes, it knows. Happy Saturday.
It is said a picture speaks louder than words.
Today I’m thinking of venturing out to Canadian Tire for a couple of paint brushes. It will be my first retail experience in three months if you don’t count getting my snow tires changed over. Back in the eighties, one of my daughters gave me the following quote in the form of a wall plaque. It will be in my mind the whole time I’m out.
Lord, help me to remember that nothing is going to happen today that You and I can’t handle together.
So many have so much in the way of talents, yet so many are not applying them in their lives. Whatever your talents are they are God-given and not to be set on the back burner. Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:10. Happy Sunday
