For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith Jehovah, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you hope in your latter end.
This scripture is the theme of my blog. My on-line ministry has gone through many incarnations: web site, blog, commercial, non profit. Initially, I concentrated on the various spiritual gifts given to the church by God. Later, I added sections on weight-loss and technology. None of these topics really inspired me to write: I went months with out writing any content.
I have had a hell of a life. I am tempted to write about them here, but I will spare you.
Through it all it all I have maintained a belief that this universe was created by and is being guided now by a wise and loving God. A God who wants above all that His creation reflect the purpose for which He created it. He made all “good” and commissioned all He made to be fruitful and multiply.
We are programmed by God also to seek a higher life which will put us in harmony with Him (Ecclesiastes 3:9-11). He has set “owlam” in our hearts but as yet we can’t grasp it.
When we deny our internal programming — the way our minds are hardwired — we suffer. We stagnate and die: first spiritually, then physically.
This site is as much for me as for anyone who might come across it. I have determined to reenter the procession of all creation towards God who, in the course of time, will reconcile the whole creation to Himself.
I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.
Beloved, I pray that in all things thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. 3John 2.
