The Intention of My Blog

Welcome, my beloved readers!

In case you're wondering, it's not a typo up there for you see the definition of goodly is:

used as an adjective to describe something
1. of ample or good size, ex: a goodly amount.
2. of a fine appearance, ex: a goodly young man.
3. Archaic. of good quality, ex: a goodly gift.

I am a mother who home educates her children; I would be pleased if you'd look around. You never know if I might have something to your liking. I've blogged about different topics. I hope you enjoy your stay here. May God bless you with peace, a renewing of your mind, and rest as you read my posts.

Thanks to all for your patience as I have been on the mend. I had double heart bypass surgery in February of 2013, and I needed to focus on my recovery, which has been in steady progress. Thanks for your kind consideration.

Thanks for visiting!

God is Great and So Am I: My Contemplation of Verse 25 of the Tao Te Ching

Dr. Dyer's book is Change your Thoughts--Change Your Life: Living the Wisdom of the Tao.

Today I delve into verse 25 of the Tao Te Ching, specifically these portions:

..the Way is great,
heaven is great,
earth is great,
people are great.

Thus, to know humanity,
understand earth.
to know earth,
understand heaven.
To know heaven,
understand the Way.
To know the Way,
understand the great within yourself.

My God is great.  He is my creator.  I must then be great, too.  God is perfect.  He doesn't make mistakes.
I know what you're thinking!  Is she calling herself as an equal to God?  No.  I'm not.  I just have a positive vision of myself.

No. I'm not boasting about myself.  I'm simply saying that God is great in all ways.  He created me.  He creates with greatness.  I am His creation.

I am great.  I am a great creation.  God is a god that does not make mistakes.  He has reasons for everything He does.  He doesn't make anything by accident.

If God is perfect, then I should see myself as a great being.  I'm not saying that I walk around strutting like a rooster.  I must remain humble before people.  I'm not higher than anyone.  God does not have favorites.

I am guilty of one thing.  I trust God.  I have seen evidence of His work in my life.  I have come a long way from my past.  God is still working in my life.

The confidence I have in God has grown over the years.  I came from a past of hardship, and I have been blessed as an adult.  I have much more than I ever had.  I have lots of possessions, healthy children, and a loving husband.  That's a lot of evidence right there.

There is so much more to come in the future.  
I can feel it.

How about you, my friends?  Do you believe in God?  Do you believe God is great?  Do you believe God created you?  God intends greatness for all His creatures, large and small.  I encourage you to be in expectation of His greatness.  Greatness is yours for the taking.

May God bless you, my beloveds, with His wisdom and peace, in Jesus' name.  Amen!

This has been an entry for Wisdom Wednesdays.

I am currently drawing inspiration from Dr. Wayne W. Dyer's book and the 81 verses of the Chinese wisdom book the Tao Te Ching.
