When Blessings Curse! + PRAYER: Make Me Chaste!


Elisha  Was To Gehazi A Blessing
But He Turned 
And Did Gehazi Mortally Curse!

This Situation Is Not Peculiar
AND
It Is Not To Mankind A Pioneering First!

David Had The Lord's Blessing
But His Eye Caused His Blessing 
To Work For Him A Curse!

BUT ...

The Man After God's Own Heart
Repented of His Sin
After Lusting After and Laying With What Was Not His!

David Lied 
AND
An Innocent Man Was Murdered
AND
An Innocent Child Died
BUT
By His Deep Shame and Remorse
His Blessing-Turned-To-Curse
Was By The Blessing-God
Reversed!

A Blessing Is Not To Be Taken Lightly!
One Must Examine From Whence It To One Came!

A Lightly-Esteemed Blessing From God
Will Be Besmirched By The Fraud
When Our Consuming Greed 
Insists
That We Are Entitled To Have More
Because: 

"We Are Truly Blessed Of Almighty God!"

and

"We're Too Blessed To Be Stressed!"

God Blesses!
God Curses!
God Blesses and Curses
AND
God Has Set Before Man
The Blessing
AND
The Curse!

So ....

Don't Play The Arrogant and Entitled Fool!
Don't Let Yourself Be To Satan A Ready Tool
For
God's Wrath Will Leave
You Bothered And Hot
AND
That,  My Friend
Is Really, Really, Not Pleasant
Nor Close To Being Cool!



NOTE TO SELF:

Receiving 
A "Blessing" 
From An Accursed Source
Is Not A Blessing!

Its Receipt Will Cause You, Too, To Be Accursed!

Look Upon Those 
Who Have Been "Blessed" By
"Lady Luck"
and
Have Received 
Reams and Streams of Big Bucks
Only To Find Themselves


Holding A Pack of Inedible Nuts!

The Living God's Blessings 
Appear Trivial
and
Insignificant
To This Dying World!

Ignore The World's Baleful Benedictions!

Hold On To God!

God's Blessings
On The Faithful 
are
Beneficial
and
Infinite!

N.B.: What The World Means To Us For A Curse
Becomes A Blessing In The Hands Of The Child Of God!


PRAYER:

Father,
Make Me Chaste
and
Cleanse This Life
Of The Gross Greed Within!
Bless Me, Lord
For I Have The Need
and
I Beseech You
To Help Me
To Keep My Hand In Yours
So That In The Great Day
You Will Take Me Safely Home
To 
Heaven's Blissful
Peaceful Shores!
I Love You, Lord!
AMEN
