Wigs Word of God Today 5-21-2013
The trials of life are set before you to gain wisdom void of worry.
My child, when you come to serve the LORD, prepare yourself for trials. Be sincere of heart and steadfast, and do not be impetuous in time of adversity. Cling to Him, do not leave Him, that you may prosper in your last days. Accept whatever happens to you; in periods of humiliation be patient. Sirach 2:1-4
Then He sat down, called the Twelve, and said to them, “If anyone wishes to be first, he shall be the last of all and the servant of all.” Taking a child He placed it in their midst, and putting His arms around it He said to them, “Whoever receives one child such as this in My Name, receives Me; and whoever receives Me, receives not Me but the One Who sent Me.” Mark 9:35-37
Sirach 2:1-11, Psalm 37 & Mark 9:30-37
The trials of life are set before you to gain wisdom void of worry seeking not sin but Salvation from the Truth lasting in havoc by the Heaven we look up to living in peace by God’s Purpose. Here, we must learn to “be sincere of heart and steadfast undisturbed in time of adversity” clinging to God through His Word, His established prayers and His Spirit-led proclamation of His Everlasting Truth. There will be times that humiliation will come from outside forces as well as inner decisions that cause you great shame where it may seem God has left your side but He is there even then when bad decisions cause embarrassing positions where God seemingly lifts your pants after being dropped in public. Be patient and productive for Christ’s Charity and the Will of God will overshadow the desperation seen in disgrace.
We have been pushed to be first by the forces of secular living not embracing the Word of God but the desires of a heart filled with competition not grace enjoying excess not fate. Jesus points out the peace of a child asking for enlightenment by a growing brain living with such humility allowing the beauty of Truth instilling not the competitiveness of being first but the charity of being last lifting the joy felt by helping not hurting loving not languished in a sincere heart granted by God’s grace. Receive them with Christ’s Arms of Salvation and see the modesty, meekness and mastery of Truth. I felt this pull from God to live as a teacher of His Children watching in awe as the forces of Truth allow each to grow and sustain a heart craving faith, hope and love of Truth. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray we trust You LORD in trials seeking not to be first but last for those in need. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop has our constant prayers. Day five of novena prayers for Roxy. Day four of a novena of prayers for Sal, Melina and Page. Novena prayers day four for Sue’s healing LORD. LORD from Psalm 134:1-2 I chant- “O come, bless the LORD, all you servants of the LORD. You who stand in the house of the LORD throughout the nights. Lift up your hands toward the sanctuary, and bless the LORD.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
I am yours in Christ,
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
Protection from evil before it’s too late– Sirach 2:1-11
Justice must serve the LORD in fear
Trials may happen along your years
Steadfast of heart as you seer
The Word of Understanding always near
Adversity will not disturb your mind
A heart and soul of love we will find
Clinging to God with patience in kind
Forsaking Him not lest you go blind
Ways of wisdom will fill your heart
What befalls you a blessing to start
Misfortune crushed by love’s part
Patient in humiliation God as your mark
Fear of the LORD grants His mercy
Lest you fall in disgrace as you curtsy
Love Him with hearts enlightened
Generations studied as love heightens
None has ever been disappointed by His fate
None to rebuff as we learn His Word to relate
Merciful compassion will be our eternal date
Forgiving sins saved by Truth we seek to create
Protection from evil before it’s too late
