With My Whole Heart before the gods
This week’s Bible burst on demigods, worship of pleasure and self, human dignity, and holiness. I thought I was going somewhere with my one-hour reflection, but I ran out of time. Any and all feedback to help me find the good bits me in here that are worth exploring or developing will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
There are gods and there is God. There are words and there is the Word. There is strength and there is strength.
I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.
I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

Although crippled by disease, I'm fully alive in love. I write about the terrible beauty and sacred wonder of life, while living with physical disability and severe dependency. A revert to the Catholic faith through atheism, I'm not afraid to ask life's big questions. I explore what it means to be fully human through my weekly blog and have written a book: It's Good to Be Here, published by Sophia Institute Press.

Therefore, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and constraints, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak, then I am strong.
Not sure if I’m exactly content with hardships and such, yet… 🙂 But I do thank God for showing me where true strength comes from. I always appreciate your visits, Limbi! Stay strong
You are strong, I believe I expressed that sentiment before and I know God moves within you,even through a keyboard and computer screen I can sense spiritually the anointing and power and the love of Christ that dwells in you.
You inspire me truly and your friendship means a lot.
Lots of love in Christ,
You are indeed like a sister to me.
Thank you, my brother in Christ, for your encouragement and friendship, and for inspiring me with your example and witness. Love is powerful in every form – and every forum.
