  • Don't praise him for our accomplishments!

    This picture, and tale, has been making the rounds on the internet. I found it on facebook, with the caption;
    "She survived breast cancer and is now having a child
    GOD IS GOOD . Who all agrees ?"

    I personally think the subject needs some clarification of my own brand:

    GOD IS GOOD...??... Oh, please;...Praise and/or blame He does not seek, need, or want from us.

    This woman is amazing, and I would fall in love with her for nothing more than her pluck. She is the epitome of beauty and strength.

    Why does the world find a need to ascribe credit for her might, to God?.. God wasn't pregnant... She was.. God didn't have cancer... She did.

    Why then, do we make less of her courage, and strength, by giving God the credit for what she has accomplished?

    This would be like a prize fighter, with a manager claiming to, or news services giving credit to, having taken every 'hit 'for her, so she could go on to win a prize fight in the 10th round, after a horrid beating that she 'never' really received to begin with, because they did it all for her.

    Accolades proceed from my place in the universe, to this woman of incredible strength and beauty. She has accomplished exactly that which God asks from us all. She has endured the hardships that His creation has in store for us, and triumphed. She has found the true joy of life. She has found the true source of the joy that God wants for us all...life, no grand purpose, just life.

    We need only to learn how to enjoy that which God has given us, and take, as well as give credit for our, and her accomplishments in this endeavor.

    God wants us to; endure...to succeed in life...to excel.... Not to win or fail, and then blame Him for the results.

    This woman is just DAMNED awesome! Let's give her credit!
