PSA-180117-God’s Wisdom Revealed

gods-wisdom.png


When GOD solves our problems,
we have faith in HIS abilities.
When GOD doesn’t solve our problems,
HE has faith in our abilities.
 
 One may observe God’s accuracy in the hatching of eggs…
those of the Canary in 14 days;
those of the Barnyard Hen in 21 days;
Eggs of Ducks and Geese in 28 days;
those of the Mallard in 35 days;
Eggs of the Parrot and the Ostrich hatch in 42 days.
 
 (Notice, they are all divisible by seven,
the number of days in a week!)
 
 See God’s Wisdom in the making of an Elephant…
The four legs of this great beast
all bend forward in the same direction.
No other quadruped is so made.
God planned that this animal would have a huge body…
too large to live on two legs.
For this reason He gave it four fulcrums
so that it can rise from the ground easily.
The Horse rises from the ground on its two front legs first.
A Cow rises from the ground with its two hind legs first.
 
 How wise the Lord is in all His works of Creation!
 
 Each Watermelon has an even number of stripes on the Rind.
 
 Each Orange has an even number of segments.
Each ear of Corn has an even number of rows.
Each stalk of Wheat has an even number of grains.
 
 Every bunch of Bananas has on its lowest row
an even number of Bananas,
and each row decreases by one,
so that one row has an even number
and the next row an odd number.
 
 Amazing!
There’s more…
 
 The Waves of the Sea roll in on shore
Twenty-six to the Minute in all kinds of weather.
 
 All Grains are found in even numbers on the stalks..
 
 God has caused the Flowers to Blossom
at certain specified times during the day.

Linnaeus,
the Great Botanist,
once said that if he had a Conservatory
containing the right kind of Soil,
Moisture,
and Temperature,
he could tell the Time of Day or Night
by the Flowers that were Open
and those that were Closed.
 
 The Lives of each of us
may be ordered by the Lord
in a Beautiful Way for His Glory,
if we will only Entrust Him with our Lives.
If we try to Regulate our own Lives,
we will have only Mess and Failure.
 
 Only God,
who made our Brains and Hearts,
can Successfully Guide them to a Profitable End.
 
 When you carry the Bible,
Satan has a Headache;
when you Open it,
he Collapses.
 
 When he sees you Reading it,
he loses his Strength,
and when you Stand on the Word of God,
Satan can’t Hurt you!

 
 Life without God is like an Unsharpened pencil – it has no Point.
 
 I pray God bless you in ways you never even Dreamed.
I didn’t think twice about forwarding this one.

Wisdom Of A Senior

There is no senior discount for reading this!!!

Lying around, pondering the problems of the world, I realized that, at my age, I don’t really give a rat’s ass anymore.

If walking is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.

A whale swims all day, only eats fish, and drinks water, but is still fat.

A rabbit runs, and hops, and only lives 15 years, while a tortoise doesn’t run, and does mostly nothing, yet it lives for 150 years. And they tell us to exercise? I don’t think so.

Now that I’m older, here’s what I’ve discovered:

1. I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it.

2. My wild oats are mostly enjoyed with prunes and all-bran.

3. Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.

4. Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.

5. If all is not lost, then where the heck is it?

6. It was a whole lot easier to get older, than it was to get wiser.

7. Some days, you’re the top dog, some days you’re the hydrant.

8. I wish the buck really did stop here; I sure could use a few of them.

9. Kids in the back seat cause accidents.

10. Accidents in the back seat cause kids.

11. It is hard to make a comeback when you haven’t been anywhere.

12. The world only beats a path to your door when you’re in the bathroom.

13. If God wanted me to touch my toes, he’d have put them on my knees.

14. When I’m finally holding all the right cards, everyone wants to play chess.

15. It is not hard to meet expenses . . . They’re everywhere.

16. The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth..

17. These days, I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter . . . I go somewhere to get something, and then wonder what I’m “here after”.

18. Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.

19. It is a lot better to be seen than viewed.

20. Have I sent this message to you before…or did I get it from you?

Deja Vu

If you read this and think you have read it here before it is because you have. This is one of my favorite pieces of wisdom to impart to my readers. If you receive an email with this post and it describes Regina as a ninety or ninety-three year old, I wish you look as good as Regina does at this age.

This is something we should all read at least once a week!!!!! Make sure you read to the end!!!!!!
