“God is WITH us” ~ The Giver ~ The Gift and the gifts to lay hold of

                                                                   “One Solitary Life”

“God is WITH us” ~ The Giver ~ The Gift and the gifts to lay hold of

He was born in an obscure village, the child of a peasant woman. He grew up in another obscure village where He worked in a carpenter shop until he was thirty. He never wrote a book. He never held an office. He never had a family or owned a house. He never went to college. He never visited a big city. He never traveled more than two hundred miles from the place where he was born. He did none of those things one usually associated with greatness. He had no credentials but himself…

He was only thirty-three when the tide of public opinion turned against him. His friends ran away. One of them denied him. He was turned over to his enemies and went through the mockery of a trial. He was nailed upon a cross between two thieves. While dying, his executioners gambled for his clothing, the only piece of property he had on earth. When he was dead, he was taken down and laid in a borrowed grave through the pity of a friend.

Nineteen centuries have come and gone, and today he is the central figure of the human race and the leader of mankind’s progress. All the armies that have ever marched, all the navies that ever sailed, all the parliaments that ever sat and all the kings that ever reigned put together have not affected the life on earth of mankind as powerfully as that … One Solitary Life …

History is HIS-STORY

“In the fullness of time” … God’s plan unfolds … the Savior was born

"The Giver"

“God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.” ~ 1 John 4

"The Gift"

“For to us a child is born, to us a Son is givenand the government will be on his shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father,

Prince of Peace” ~ Isaiah 9:6

“The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world. He was in the world, & though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who received him … to those who received him, to those who believed in his name … he gave the right to become children of God … children born not of natural descent, not of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” ~ John 1:10-14

Why Christ came:

“God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself” ~ 2 Corinthians 5:19 

God’s plan to redeem & restore mankind was entrusted to the “One & Only Son” … The birth of Jesus Christ makes eternal life possible through (spiritual) rebirth for “whosoever believes in Him” … this is “Good News that will cause great joy for all people” ~

God is Almighty, All-seeing, All-knowing, All-powerful, All-sufficient, Omnipotent & Omniscient

“Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you … to show you compassion” ~Isaiah 30:18

God loves you … God knows you … and His greatest gift is that you can know Him.

Are you tired of “fake news” Are you looking for TRUTH & “good news” … this is the Gospel:

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” ~John 3:17-17

God knows you better than anyone: your parents or siblings … your best friend … your spouse … even better than you know yourself… In Psalm 139 this truth is beautifully written: “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I am fearfully & wonderfully made. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. You have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise, you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out & my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.”

Glory above & glory below: There are billions of stars … and “God knows each one by name” … In all of creation … there is only one “you” … and he knows you by name.

Do you listen for His voice?

The world is filled with noise. If you are not attentive that noise will dull your hearing … dull your spirit and dull your senses. When Christ was transfigured on the mountain, God the Father said: "This is my Son whom I love; with Him I am well pleased… Listen to Him!" ~Mark 9:7

"He who belongs to God hears what God says" ~John 8:47

As you hear, “listen to Him” and obey … hold close to your heart God’s precious promises. As you know him more and take hold of who you are “in Christ” … this knowledge will be a continual source of peace, provision & protection … edification, endurance and encouragement … growth, strength, healing and wisdom … direction, fulfillment and purpose.

Be whole-hearted” … all of you for all of Him

Cooperate with the Holy Spirit. "Have your mind set on what the Spirit desires ... the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace." ~Romans 8:5-6

“Be expectant” … He “is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think” ~ Ephesians 3:20

“Be assured” God loves you: continually & unconditionally. In His love letters to us … it is written: “I have summoned you by name, you are mineyou are precious & honored in My sight” ~ Isaiah 43

“I am the Lord, your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you … do not be afraid … I myself will help you” ~Isaiah 41:13-14

Jesus has given His Word: “I will not leave you an orphan; I will come to you.” ~John 14

                                                   “I am with you always.” ~Matthew 28

                                                                     God is WITH us

                                                       I have a Friend Who walks with me

                                                       But He’s a Spirit … you can’t see

                                                       He made the worlds in all their glory

                                                       Christmas begins His earthly story

                                                       He knows you by name … like all of the stars

                                                       God is ever NEAR ... though He seems so far

December 23rd 2019 … these thoughts stopped being a “draft” ;~)

I write: “In His Light”~ Fay Vietmeier

If my words make you think … Great ;~)

As “iron-sharpens-iron” … “bee-bantering” is sweet & your feedback is as “honey”

A glimpse of the “Bee” called “me” ;~)

My caring nature makes me an advocate. My curious nature makes me a “queen of questions” … but gifted with the ability to listen ;~) I am a woman of deep faith, a blessed mother, a voracious reader, a blossoming writer, a grateful person, and a lover of TRUTH & beauty …          I treasure family, true friendships and my loyal clients ... enjoy traveling, learning, good movies, good wine and golf. I’m a “heart-to-heart” communicator.

You have a poet’s heart ;~) my friend
“little birds you have visited the corridor of my house”
In my decade of reflection upon my patio in my “time-of-captivity” … it was the “little birds that visited” … reminding me to praise The Fountain & Source of Life ... Wisdom, Peace & Truth, Good Shepherd & Giver of all good things.
The gentle breezes I would feel while praying … reading the Word of God … reminding me of His gentle Presence
“God with us”
In His Light & Love … wishing God’s rich wisdom & blessings upon your life, your family & your work ~ Fay

#3 My dear "Queen of Questions and Princess of Wisdom",or "The creative Well-Spring Spirit of Wisdom":
I mean you @Fay Vietmeier
Your wisdom shines in this line "And just as in the physical realm no one can do your push-ups for you". But, you are an inspiration for others to do their push ups.

Looking forward to reading your next post.

@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee
My dearest Professor … you often reveal one of the qualities we share … “an inquiring mind”
This quality in me is why my son calls me the “queen of questions” … I tell him that “he must be the prince of answers” ;~)
To respond to your question would fill a book
I did not grow up in a Norman Rockwell family (these are idyllic, lovely pictures of family life) ... rare a such families
… my childhood was “dysfunctional” ... "broken parents break their children" ... this condition is generational
… as a child my heart was toward God
… in my late teens I fell into a “pit” … I shared a glimpse on my post …
How I found my out:
A change of heart: what I loved … what I valued
A renewing of mind: reordering my priorities … changing my focus
If you change your heart & change your mind: everything changes …
Faith is a transformation journey and transformation is a faith journey
And just as in the physical realm no one can do your push-ups for you
It is the same in the spiritual realm … each heart must seek … each heart must decide its desire

“But God” (two of my favorite words)
Going through a divorce placed me in a “time-of-captivity” … 10 years of reflecting on my patio
(of this I have MANY things to share about self-examining & heart-examining)
Here lies the answer to your question
I have been in the “Refiners Fire”
The eternal became my desire
I have been writing for awhile on this: Do you value what is valuable?
(I hope to share it soon)
More answer to your question lie there

Estimada Fay Vietmeier & Familia.

Del tiempo de las enseñanzas grandes mandatos de Dios y citamos: "Feliz Navidad 2019"

Con grandeza ante "Dios" todopoderoso, grandeza que ha de intuirnos para ir estimulando con su esencia las nuestras, de hacer de los pensamientos su valor en sentimientos. "Grandeza total" de saber que sentimos y percibimos su presencia en la nuestra; de ser el presente al valor del tiempo que mide cada creación hecha acción; al carácter humano en Espíritu, Cuerpo y Alma entre nosotros, de siempre estar allí a nuestro lado para cobijarnos infinitamente.

En la existencia de fe nuestras esperanzas depositadas; todos para establecernos como instrumentos en lo que es y sera vida terrenal. Eventos que van y vienen a ser narrados en su historia viva, dan profunda tranquilidad, se interiorizan en los pasajes de la vida que honran la fuente de ser creyentes. En sus fundamentos otros han alcanzados (completados) grandes propósitos de ser creyentes y practicantes para servir de fuentes que tienen y tendrán deberes consagrados que son y serán citados desde las virtudes humanas; son objeto de valor en sus cimientos que dieron, dan y darán a cada rincón del mundo la palabra de Dios en nosotros (MANDATOS DE LUZ).

Un sueño compartido para citar que anoche soñé con el nombre de San Jose.

Otro reconocimiento en la mañana de hoy 24-12-2019 pequeñas aves has visitado el pasillo de mi casa.

"QUE DIOS BENDIGA A TODOS LOS SERES HUMANOS, EN ESENCIA LOS MAS NECESITADOS"

Merry Xmas and ha[[y Hew Year for you and your beloved ones my good friend @Fay Vietmeier
I just wonder at what age you realized all these "spiritual traits" that led to your very strong faith in God. Was it your upbringing at home, or if it was exclusively or mainly you. You have such great faith in God and this what steers your life.
I must say that many religious writers don't move me and I don't believe in their intentions.You are different and that is why I am asking.
