The amazing, awesome FACT is that I know that I LOVE The LORD!!!
So many reasons!
1. I am beyond blessed, Amen. https://www.emic.org/blog/blessed-beyond-measure/
2. I woke up this morning! Glory Hallelujah! I get to see another day! To God be The glory.
The LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
3. I can breathe! Hallelujah!!!
When I speak my voice is clear. I can speak because God Speaks!!! In God’s image I am made! Glory Hallelujah!!!
We in creation are all that speak! No matter how advanced a species. For some reason, they cannot speak! Evolution?
Yes! Communicate other species do. In our bodies each cell has a function. It is when things go awry that problems arise!
A cancer? A dis-ease (are you at ease? You are blessed ) in which abnormal cells divide uncontrollably and destroy body tissue.
Cancer can start any place in the body. It starts when cells grow out of control and crowd out normal cells. This makes it hard for the body to work the way it should.
Life is a blessing! So many times people are unaware of what constitutes a blessing.
One of the symptoms of the plague was coughing and sneezing, and it is believed that Pope Gregory I (Gregory the Great) suggestedsaying “God bless you” after a person sneezed in hopes that this prayer would protect them from an otherwise certain death. The expression may have also originated from superstition.
Someone sneeze? Bless you is the key phrase!
“Bless you”? What does that mean? Are you truly serious that you are not aware of the etiology?
I am aware that some of you do. For those of us who do not, we will share. For those of us who do. When did it come into existence? Why?
I guess you have to read too!
In Islam the Prophet Mohamad instructed Muslims who sneezes to say “الحمد لله” meaning “Thanks to Allah”, and who ever hears them say that, should reply “يرحمكم الله” meaning “may Allah have mercy on you“, and the person who sneezed should reply “يهديك الله ويصلح بالك” meaning “May Allah Guide you to the right path and calm your mind”, and for repeated sneezes, they keep replying the same reply for a maximum of three times, by then the reply is changed to “عافاك الله” meaning “May Allah heal you“ and the replies stop. This act in Islam is called “تشميت العاطس”.
In Persian culture, sneezing sometimes is called “sabr =صبر,” meaning “to wait or be patient.” And when trying to do something or go somewhere and suddenly sneezing, one should stop or sit for a few minutes and then restart. By this act the “bad thing” passes and one will be saved.
In Greek culture, sneezing was widely recognized as a divine omen. In Book 17 of Homer’s Odyssey, Penelope speaks to Eumaeus in private about the suitors feasting in the halls of the king’s palace, and how surely Odysseus will return and kill them. Suddenly her son Telemachus sneezes and Penelope laughed. A sneeze meant the intercession of the gods to make her statement come true. It was a blessing from the gods, connecting the sneeze to the “God Bless You.”
So, we started with the phrase or heading “I Love The LORD!!!”
WHY? God is my all. My beginning, my end! And by His grace, my in between, Amen.
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Revelations 22:13
Why do I say this?
For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
This is profound! My innermost being? You mean I am not just flesh and bone? I am me, my essence! My innermost being. I am known!
Psalm 139:13-18 is worth a ponder. Read up!
3. I understand many things I once was unclear on!
Then He opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures.
I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in His holy people.
