03-12-2024 Sirach 23 V0406 Life mine is God the Fathers




The Book of Sirach Ch 23 v- Four thru Six

4 Lord, Father and God of my life, do not give me haughty eyes; 5 remove evil desire from my heart. 6 Let neither gluttony nor lust overcome me; do not give me up to shameless desires.


The Maker of Heaven and Earth is the Lord, Father, and God of my life, and it is through His Spirit that I am able to overcome evil desires, shameful urges, and temptations such as lust and gluttony. As a believer that God is One as the Father, His Son and the Holy Ghost, I have come to understand that He is the ultimate source of strength, guidance, and wisdom in my life.


In the book of Genesis, it is written that God created the heavens and the earth in six days, and on the seventh day, He rested. This act of creation demonstrates His power and authority over all things, including the desires of the human heart. As the Creator of the universe, God has the ability to shape and mold our lives according to His Will, leading us away from sinful desires and towards righteousness.


As a Father, God cares for His children and desires for us to live holy and righteous lives. In the book of 1 John, it is written that we are children of God, and that when we are born of Him, we do not continue to sin because His seed remains in us. This means that as children of God, we have the power to overcome sinful desires and live according to His Will.


Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we are able to resist temptation and overcome evil desires that seek to lead us astray. The Spirit of God dwells within us, guiding us in the paths of righteousness and helping us to avoid the pitfalls of sin. As we yield ourselves to the Spirit, He empowers us to resist the temptations of lust and gluttony, leading us towards a life of purity and self-control.


When we surrender our lives to God and allow Him to be the Lord, Father, and God of our lives, we open ourselves up to His transformative power. He is able to remove the desires of the flesh and replace them with desires that are pleasing to Him. Through prayer, meditation on His Word, and fellowship with other believers, we can overcome the temptations of this world and live a life that is pleasing to God. Practice. Pray. Proclaim.


The Maker of Heaven and Earth is the Lord, Father, and God of my life, and it is through His Spirit that I am able to overcome evil desires, shameful urges, and temptations such as lust and gluttony. By surrendering our lives to Him and allowing Him to work in us, we can experience true freedom from the bondage of sin and live a life that is pleasing to Him. Seek to share this beauty of Salvation where Life Eternal dwells secure. Amen.


Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. The Lord’s Prayer.


At the Savior’s command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.


I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen Son in Law Mark Stern; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Our prayers for our niece Brittany. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

03-12-2024 Sirach 23 v-0406


**Life mine is God the Fathers**


Life mine is God the Fathers

Eyes haughty give not to plunge

Heart’s desire for evil remove even farther

Lust not gluttony for me to overcome

Shameless desires me give up for the Son
