Oh wow!
Isn't that the truth? Like it gets blocked, that's all,from their end... right?
Like the faucet out side that is always on...it's us that blocks it.

A friend said to me, cuz i was asking WHY do all these amazing things happen to me, that I was no more special than anyone else...it's just that I am listening and am open.
I went, "Yeah! That's it!"

And a couple of other things I think...If you sow corn, you get corn, not beans.
I sow good stuff and also EXPECT good stuff.
People say never expect things, then ya don't get disappointed.
I expect BIG time...I don't sit in stillness thinking nothing is going to happen...I expect it to
with palms open or cup empty to be filled.
Ans so the cup does get filled...Jesus said believe you already have that which you
have asked of Him (the Father). Why wouldn't that be absolutely true...Jesus didn't lie.
Ok...and ...leaving no doubt in your mind what so ever, of course, things come out as I asked or proclaimed or decreed.

Diligence industry and persistence are godlike qualities expressed by his children
Those who follow the luck god do not value or express these qualities

I wasn't recommending it, as much as I was just curious.

No.

I AM quite inventive. And I am very kind to the majority of posters here. My scorn is directed solely to narrow-minded, deliberately-obtuse bigots who richly deserve it. And I will stop only when my fingers and/or mind no longer let me continue.

all 6 kids stay in front of the TV, don't even say, Hi....ONE jumps up and says, "Daddy!"
He picks her up and swings her around.*
This remains the scenario for years..now it's time for graduation presents...who do ya
think gets the red convertible?

The dad loves 'em all, tho.


* That's how I identify myself with my Heavenly Father, btw.
He picks me up and throws me in the air.
obviously I am NOT in god's favor as I am still waiting on that $73 million Lear jet and $35 million mansion in Houston.

Zman, my church has regular mission trips all over the world, to care for and serve the poor and needy. I could set you up if you like. We have both long-term and short-term opportunities. You would surely feel blessed after participating.
