#Future

“This verse, quoted to countless individuals who are struggling with vocation or discerning God’s will, is not written to individuals at all. This passage is written to a whole group of people—an entire nation. For all the grammarians out there, the “you” in Jeremiah 29:11 isn’t singular, it’s plural. And you don’t have to be a Hebrew scholar to realize that “one” versus “many” is a big difference,”  according to Thom Turner, program manager at International Justice Mission. He is a graduate of Rutgers University (MA in English) and Cairn University (BS English Ed., BS Bible), and blogs at THIS LINK.

Turner further adds: “And the verse just before it is perhaps even scarier. For in Jeremiah 29:10, God lays down the specifics on this promise: that He will fulfill it after seventy years are completed for Babylon. In other words, yes, God says, I will redeem you—after 70 years in exile. This is certainly a far cry from our expectation of this verse in what God’s plans to prosper us really mean. He did have a future and a hope for them—but it would look far different than the Israelites ever expected.”

Despite this admonition and prompt to clarity on the now amplified verse, millions of Bible followers still take much solace from the verse for their personal lives while reading into this text the Lord’s hope for a brighter future.  If you are among those who would like to capture that sentiment in a larger than life way, you may wish to visit our AMAZONE LINK.

#Faultless

James, Jesus’ own brother, started out as a skeptic. See how one glimpse of the resurrected Savior turned an unbeliever into a disciple with Beth Moore’s study James: Mercy Triumphs

}:{ Once you get to know both the man and the Book of James, you’ll never be the same again. Bible scholars compare James to the prophet Amos. In other ways, James more closely resembles the Book of Proverbs than any New Testament book. James is a book with many topics — social justice, joy, hardship, faith, reversal of fortunes for rich and poor, wisdom, gifts from above, single-mindedness, the dangers of the tongue, humility, and prayer — all of which are searched by the hashtag #Faultless.

Every survivor looks great, no matter the appearance

Social Current See : Following the survivors on the Facebook page Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
Just made a comment on the FB wall of Douglas Mancebo, who is concerned about his physical appearance (the Kojack look) and advised him:

Don’t sweat the appearance of all your friends because they should not sweat yours. In 2007, I showed up at the wedding to give away my youngest daughter. Had a tumor in my left jaw the size of a orange and was bald as a billard ball. But alive and a few months away from an SCT that keeps me alive almost 6 years later. Those who care about you are just happy to see you. Those who don’t like your appearance can hang out somewhere else.

After I came out of isolation following my SCT and sometimes prior, when I saw people I hadn’t seen in awhile they often said, “Great to see you!”  My usual response was, “Great to be seen!”
