05-02-2024 Sirach 39 V3233 Good are all of God’s Works




The Book of Sirach Ch 39 v- 32 thru 33

32 That is why from the first I took my stand, and wrote down as my theme: 33 The works of God are all of them good; he supplies for every need in its own time.


The Prophet of Old Ben Sira, also known as Sirach, was a wise and learned man who joyfully proclaimed the greatness of God and His works. In his writings, he expressed his deep reverence and awe for the Creator, declaring that all of God’s works are good and perfect.


With a heart full of gratitude and praise, the Prophet of Old Ben Sira marveled at the ways in which God provided for every need in His own time. He saw the hand of God in every aspect of creation, from the vast expanse of the heavens to the tiniest creatures that dwell on the earth. For him, there was no doubt that God’s wisdom and power were evident in every detail of the world around him.


In his poetic and profound reflections, the Prophet of Old Ben Sira encouraged others to trust in God’s provision and to seek His guidance in all things. He believed that God’s love and care were boundless, and that those who put their faith in Him would never be disappointed.


Ben Sira’s favorite theme was a reminder of the goodness and faithfulness of God. He saw God as a loving and compassionate Father who always looked out for His children, providing for their every need and guiding them along the path of righteousness.


Ben Sira proclaimed the works of God with joy and exuberance, he inspired others to look for the hand of the Creator in their own lives. His words were a source of comfort and hope, reminding people that God’s love was constant and unchanging.


In a world filled with uncertainty and turmoil, the Prophet of Old Ben Sira’s message of God’s goodness and provision was a beacon of light and hope. His words continue to resonate with us believers today, reminding us to trust in God’s timing and to always seek His will in all things. One could argue that Ben Sira was speaking about the One and Only Savior of the world before He became the The Way The Truth and The Life for in every statement you can hear the cry of Salvation being shared with all. 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.

**Works of God are Good**


Oh, how I rejoice in the works of God,

In His goodness and mercy, I am awed.

For all His creations are perfect and true,

In His time, He provides for me without flaw.


The birds of the air, the flowers in bloom,

All testify to His power and His graceful room.

For He cares for them all, from the least to the great,

In His hands, they are safe and always relate.


The sun in the sky, the moon at night,

Shine brightly with His love and His absolute might.

For He guides us all with a steady hand,

In His wisdom, we can always and forever stand.


Let us sing praises to our God above,

For His works are all good, filled with love.

In His time, He supplies for every need,

In His grace, we will always succeed. Amen.

No Suit Needed for Service


No suit to start.

Service talk is work at hand.

God moniker to start

Serve to love, God grand


Service is love.

No money involved.

Agape love from above.

Grace That allows all to be resolved.


Where do you look for service to do?

Roll up your sleeves and be ready.

All service is a worthwhile time.

What you do for God makes you steady.


Sometimes painful.

Embodiment wasn’t true.

Service isn’t fake but gainful.

Love shared and received for you.


Mom wore the pants to react.

Older parents guided me in pride.

Dad was a balancing act in fact.

Taught me who I am to confide.


Pride was tough to overcome.

Losing what I gained as proof.

The Lord to shun

Faults sense of pride of my youth.


I love you guys

Not showing what I need

God allowed my disguise

I overcame my own prideful greed.


House fire changed my persona.

No house And I wasn’t OK

Angry With God, my hosanna.

He protected my family to pray.


Community offered us meals

They made me encouraged to do

To appreciate the good things the fire revealed

Acts of kindness as love of proof


Once a jerk of annoyance

Now a divine jerk to prove

I’m serving as God’s enjoyance

God’s grace overcame my pride of youth


True service begins at home base

Just enjoy who you are as love

Better person from Divine Kool-Aid

Serving humanity for God above


Prayer group needed

The divine within you will click

Put yourself out over greed

Service of love you can’t resist
