    A great reminder… ANY day. For some reason when I read this passage this time I was stopped by the words, “to will…” Yes, we can aspire to WORK for God’s good pleasure, but it is another thing entirely to actually WANT TO (or will to). Thanks, Mitch!

    💎- Diamond Hard – 💎

    💎 Goddess is “Finishing The Job” EveryOne; so, perhaps, “God” should Take Several Steps Backwards and Let HER!!! Get on with The Job He made an Almighty (pun intended) Mess Of EveryBody 🤔 ?

      I’m curious about this Goddess you speak of, Yernasia, who she is and what source you refer to when you tell us she is “finishing the job” botched by God.

        💜 Think of it in the context of Men (God) and Women (Goddess) SupaSoulBro; basically Men ARE Warmongers, Causing ALL Sorts of Problems on This Planet that Some Name Gaia and, Money Making/D.I.Y Aside, ARE Fundamentally Lazy only Planting a Seed while Women ARE PeaceMakers Carrying The Seed to Term at Great Stress to Their Bodies while continuing to Work Hard and Cleaning Up The Mess Made by Their Well Meaning but Clumsy Partners…as to “Source” YOUR!!! “Source” is a Book of Many Versions written Largely by Men and Edited by Roman Emperor Constantine Omitting The Dead Sea Scrolls of Mary Magdalena who was The Equitable Wife of Jesus and Led The 12 Female Disciples on a Par with Peter Leading The 12 Male Disciples which I Accept on Faith and Conviction just like YOU!!! Accept whichever version of The Bible YOU!!! Do; so I Suggest Reading The Books written by Ladies that Remain in The Multiple, Male Dominated, Skewed Versions of The Bible especially The Book of Esther that Doesn’t Mention God; as for My “Source” it’s InSide of Me, as Jesus Attested when He said “The Kingdom of Heaven is WithIn” and, incidentally, He wasn’t Christian, neither was Mohammed a Muslim et al…ergo, in Summary, I Was Offered Religion while Being Raised which I Rapidly, Respectfully Rejected because it simply didn’t Resonate with Ne and I Wasn’t Forced to Comply by having The Demons InHabiting Me Exorcised; any more questions or shall We Agree-To-Disagree as YOU!!! Do with The Other, Multiple Religions Across Our Diverse Planet, Gaia 🤔 ?

    my first step Is knowing why or even if, I am squirming. Then I must also open my heart to Him who will show me these things and do business with my Spirit.
