  • My dear friend Anna,
    Your SS emanate some powerful thoughts as reminders to us that we are first the works the hand woven labor of LOVE from the greater God the master creator. The music is impeccable melody that perhaps strikes each of us a slight different tune but nevertheless uplifts to all of us a few reminders from where we have come from. The rest are all shadows of cloaked theories echoed from the carnal world that deprive the truth.

    On your 6th slide your reference the three chapters from the “Book of LIFE” that I took the interest to revisit and read. These are some hidden treasures of scriptures that I discern to share.

    Romans Ch12: a) live your life as living sacrifices to God b) Serve god with humility your spiritual gifts to mankind c) Exemplify a daily walk as Christ walked on earth. (Rom 12: 20-21) Therefore: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him: If he is thirsty, give him a drink: For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.” DO NOT OVERCOME BY EVIL, BUT OVERCOME EVIL WITH GOOD.”

    First Corinthians Ch12: The message here is about the diversities on spiritual gifts with the emphasis to the Holly Spirit that each of us has received the breath of new life. The manifestation of the spiritual gifts is given to each one of us for the profit of all: Wisdom, Knowledge, Faith, Healing, Miracles, Prophecy, Discerning, Languages, and Interpretations. But one and the same Spirit works all these gifts, distributing to each one individually as Spirit wills. Therefore, we are well equipped with diverse gifts from God as the functioning MEMBERS in ONE body to glorify Christ.

    Ephesians Ch4: The message here is a reminder that we the servants of Christ, thus must walk worthy in obedience to his calling in our lives. This will require that we adapt a lifestyle to walk in Unity with spiritual gifts. For Grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ’s gifts. “When Christ ascended on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts to men.” Eph 4:8. We are a new person’s in Christ thus we renew in the spirit of our mind’s with the meaning to righteousness and holiness Eph 4:23. Do not grieve the Spirit put aside the old nature of lies and perversion “Let each of us speak in truth with our neighbor.”

    It’s time to cast our cares to the God all mighty. Place the boat on the shallow waters and do not worry, for I God am the anchor in your soul to carry the burden to all your fears. Put up the sails and don’t be afraid in times or seasons the chaos of turbulent storms, for they shall all pass behind you, I God will be your defense in all to protect you. In all your shortfalls, failures, mistakes and more I God will bring you through them in a place of peace and harmony to teach you my divine unconditional love I have planted for you. I am the all mighty jealous God do not place earthly idols before me. You were purchased with the precious blood of my faithful servant JESUS the Son of man (2nd Adam) who is now reigning on my right hand of my thrown.

    Thanks for sharing this beautiful message

You Are Special!

  1. 1. By CAPT J. David Atwater, CHC, USN Music: Secret Garden „Awakening” <ul><li>YOU ARE SPECIAL </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>&quot;I don't know why I was even born,&quot; the young sailor confided! </li></ul><ul><li>„ I'm not talented. I've never been what you would call smart. </li></ul><ul><li>And I can't seem to do anything right. I feel like I've spent my whole life letting people down. Sometimes I wonder if even God could love me!&quot; </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>That conversation took place more than a decade ago, but I still remember it as if it were yesterday. That one and a lot of others over the years with the same message: </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;I'm no good; I'm just another loser.&quot; </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Unfortunately, our society places a great premium on looking good, being popular, and being the best -- or at least being &quot;special.&quot; Those who don't quite measure up often feel like that young sailor. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Nearly two thousand years ago, the Apostle Paul described how God has made each of us special, given each person a unique combination of &quot;gifts&quot;. It was an important message. It must have been. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>His letters preserve three different variations on that theme, written to three different communities. </li></ul><ul><li>(You can read his comments in Romans 12, I Corinthians 12 and Ephesians 4.) </li></ul><ul><li>A more recent anonymous author phrased it this way: </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>&quot;You Have A Special Message To Deliver&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>There is an old Jewish-Christian tradition which says: God sends each person into this world With a special message to deliver, With a special song to sing for others, With an act of love to bestow. </li></ul><ul><li>No one else can speak my message, Or sing my song, or offer my act of love, These are entrusted only to me. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>According to this tradition, The message may be spoken, The song sung, the act of love delivered Only to a few, or to all the folk in a small town, Or to all the people in a large city, Or even to all those in the whole world. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>It all depends on God's unique plan for each person. To which we might add: The greatest gift of God, one would think, Is the gift of life. The greatest sin of humans, it would seem, Would be to return that gift, Ungrateful and unopened. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>No matter what your appearance, background or position, </li></ul><ul><li>you're one of God's unique gifts to the rest of us. God loves you, has a special purpose for you, and believes in who you can become. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Lift up your heart. Despite all you may have been told, despite all you may have felt, YOU ARE SPECIAL AFTER ALL! </li></ul><ul><li>Pps A..a </li></ul>
