“Not one [sparrow] is overlooked by God. . . . You are worth more than many sparrows.”​—Luke 12:6, 7, footnote.

CONSIDER: Seemingly insignificant birds are not inconsequential to God. Not even one tiny sparrow escapes God’s notice; every one is a precious living creature. Humans are far more valuable to God than sparrows are. Humans, as the centerpiece of God’s earthly creation, are made in his “image” and are capable of cultivating and displaying his elevated qualities.​—Genesis 1:26, 27.

“O Jehovah, you have searched through me, and you know me. . . . You discern my thoughts . . . Examine me, and know my anxious thoughts.”​—Psalm 139:1, 2, 23.

CONSIDER: God knows you personally. He knows your most intimate feelings and concerns. While others may not understand your distressing situation, God cares about you and wants to help you. That makes life worth living.

Your Life Has Meaning
“O Jehovah, hear my prayer; let my cry for help reach you. . . . Incline your ear to me; do answer me quickly when I call. . . . He will pay attention to the prayer of the destitute.”​—Psalm 102:1, 2, 17.

CONSIDER: It is as if from the very start of human suffering, Jehovah had been keeping a record of every tear humans have shed. (Psalm 56:8) This includes your tears. God remembers all your trials and tears because you are precious to him.

“Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you . . . I, Jehovah your God, am . . . the One saying to you, ‘Do not be afraid. I will help you.’”​—Isaiah 41:10, 13.

CONSIDER: God is ready to help you. If you fall down, he will lift you up.

p.s. a “real” future sparrow..

“God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life.”​—John 3:16.

CONSIDER: You are so dear to God that he willingly gave his Son, Jesus, as a sacrifice in your behalf. This sacrifice gives you the prospect of living a happy and purposeful life forever.

on the move…

ready to go?
on a “spiritual” ride..:)

here’s an appetizer…aka “brief” readings (till i find/have time to share more; okay? 🙂 )

just a “friend” ly reminder: Hebrew “Yahweh” English “Jehovah”…

There is much more going on in support of Jehovah’s purposes than what we can see. For example, Ezekiel saw the invisible part of Jehovah’s organization depicted by a colossal celestial chariot. This chariot could move swiftly and change direction in an instant. (Ezek. 1:15-21) With each revolution of its wheels, the chariot could cover great distances. In vision, Ezekiel was also able to get a glimpse of the Rider of the chariot. He said: “I got to see something like the glow of electrum, like the appearance of fire all around . . . It was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of Jehovah.” (Ezek. 1:25-28) How awe-inspiring it must have been for Ezekiel to see this vision! He saw Jehovah in full control of his organization, directing its movement through his holy spirit. What an amazing representation of the heavenly part of Jehovah’s organization on the move!

Ezekiel (Hebrew, Yechez·qeʼlʹ) means “God Strengthens.”

That Ezekiel actually wrote the book that bears his name and that it has a rightful place in the canon of Scripture is not in dispute. It was included in the canon in Ezra’s day and appears in the catalogs of early Christian times, notably in the canon of Origen. Its authenticity is also testified to by the striking similarity between its symbolisms and those of Jeremiah and the Revelation.​—Ezek. 24:2-12​—Jer. 1:13-15; Ezek. 23:1-49​—Jer. 3:6-11; Ezek. 18:2-4​—Jer. 31:29, 30; Ezek. 1:5, 10​—Rev. 4:6, 7; Ezek. 5:17​—Rev. 6:8; Ezek. 9:4​—Rev. 7:3; Ezek. 2:9; 3:1​—Rev. 10:2, 8-10; Ezek. 23:22, 25, 26​—Rev. 17:16; 18:8; Ezek. 27:30, 36​—Rev. 18:9, 17-19; Ezek. 37:27​—Rev. 21:3; Ezek. 48:30-34​—Rev. 21:12, 13; Ezek. 47:1, 7, 12​—Rev. 22:1, 2. [excerpted: Bible Book Number 26–Ezekiel, “All Scripture Is Inspired of God and Beneficial”]

Including and excluded…

There are many things that Jehovah chose not to include in his written Word. For example, he did not provide details about how the brain works or how the universe functions, even though such information would have been very fascinating! Rather, Jehovah provided information that we need in order to understand his purposes and to live our lives in harmony with them. (2 Tim. 3:16, 17) How interesting, then, that the Bible does provide glimpses of the invisible part of Jehovah’s organization! We thrill at reading the descriptions of Jehovah’s heavenly arrangement written by Isaiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel and in John’s Revelation account. (Isa. 6:1-4; Ezek. 1:4-14, 22-24; Dan. 7:9-14; Rev. 4:1-11) It is as if Jehovah pulled back a curtain and allowed us to peer into the heavens. Why did he provide this information?

Jehovah wanted us never to forget that we are part of a universal organization.

I prefer looking forward than looking back when it comes to my life.

When it comes to learning, I prefer looking back and forth in the living-relevant book; the Bible. (Find a translation You like and read it. I like the New World Translation Of the Holy Scriptures Revised 2013 for its readability and accuracy. And oh! Yeah cause its unpaid translation committee wasn’t motivated by money unlike those who tamper with truth/text to please financial backers’ biased religious views.)

Two Lips & 1 eye

Acrylic, “tulips” aka two lips and one working eye…2006 (almost went blind in one eye; painting with “healthy” straining/over-worked eye helped me cope/heal).

So! Thankful! for eyesight/outlook of a “spiritual” kind. And to be able to speak:  trial is temporary.

This post is me kinda coping and a reminder to look beyond…(the pain, problem, aggravation, negative, challenge, etc.).

1 fav verse of many:

“And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

Revelation 21:4
