egg-credible

Joan Winifred mind food moderation pain reality spiritual food things i learned Transformations

Incredible;)… lately been living off of eggs. My tummy seems not wanting to cooperate much. So, been eliminating the trigger foods out of my diet.

An egg, seemingly, simple food, however, delivers a complex nutritional punch to my gut… in a good way?! Today, (Sunday, April 15th, 2018) Chato informs me eggs have been recalled. Over 200 million eggs recalled for Samonella fears. Check out FDA.

What am I suppose to eat now?? A slice of pepperoni pizza:) uh-huh–yummy now, not sure about later;) Oh, and a cookie!:)

Some seemingly edible (aka “credible”?) mind food served up (on-line and elsewhere) should be recalled too!!
Re: beware worse results than salmonella.

We all hunger, but are we really ready to chow…DUH!;)…aka are we ready to reap/accept the consequences of said mind/body eating reality?? Perhaps, mind troubles are similar to tummy troubles…(DIETary issues). And what about societal-global issues adversely affecting all of humanity??

(Eat at Your own risk of been harmed or helped. And of becoming harmful or help FULL…tum, yum, tum, yum, tummmm!;))

Teachable?? hope so!

conscientious-ness earth education Hope humility insights Joan Winifred knowledge never giving up! positive qualities power spiritual food study things i learned Transformations trust Truth wisdom

Am i teachable?!…thinking this is an important question for self-reflection.
What does it mean to be “teachable” ? Hmmm, hoping this post is a “teachable” moment of/in time:)

a : capable of being taught b : apt and willing to learn 2 : favorable to teaching
(Merriam-Webster On-line definition)

May be? some of us have come across a kid or person who was very eager and enthusiastic to learn. Then, on the flip side, perhaps, we can recall another who is/was balking/unwilling to cooperate whatsoever in the process of learning something new. You grasp what i mean?…If some of us are like sponges, then are some of us like “Patrick”? -lol:)


 

Duh! joanie, the teachable inherit…’Bikini Bottom’?;)… ‘a.naw’ (nah)!…”Earth”…please, notice these “Hebrew” scriptures:)…my highlights…

“But the meek will possess the earth, And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.” (Psalm 37:11)

“The meek will rejoice greatly in Jehovah, And the poor among men will be joyful in the Holy One of Israel.”
(Isaiah 29:19)

He will guide the meek in what is right,*(Lit., “in judgment.”) And he will teach the meek ones his way. (Psalm 25:9)

8 Let go of anger and abandon rage;

Do not become upset and turn to doing evil. *(Or possibly, “Do not become upset, for it can only lead to harm.”)

 9 For evil men will be done away with,

But those hoping in Jehovah will possess the earth.

ו [Waw]

10 Just a little while longer, and the wicked will be no more;

You will look at where they were,

And they will not be there. (Psalm 37:8-10)

i LOVE this…please check it out further readings on Meekness🙂

A mildness of temper, without haughtiness or vanity. The mental disposition that enables one to endure injury with patience and without irritation, resentment, or vindictive retaliation. It is a close companion of and seldom found separate from such other virtues as humility, lowliness of mind, and gentleness. (See HUMILITYMILDNESS.) The Hebrew word translated “meek” (ʽa·nawʹ) comes from the root ʽa·nahʹ, which means “afflict, humble, humiliate.” [excerpted: Insight on Scriptures, Vol. 2, p. 364]

Meekness is NOT a weakness, but a strength…it is not a mock humility; the quality is steel-like…

False humility can actually result in developing haughtiness in the individual, for he may tend to think he is righteous on his own merit; or he may feel that he is accomplishing his ends, not realizing that he cannot deceive Jehovah. If haughtiness develops, he will in time be humbled in a way that he will not enjoy. He will be brought low, and it may be to his own destruction.​—Pr 18:12; 29:23. [excerpted: “humility,” Insight Vol. 1]

Jesus Christ’s Humility. Jesus Christ, when on earth, set the greatest example of a humble servant of God. On the evening before his death, Jesus girded himself with a towel and washed and dried the feet of each of his 12 apostles, a service customarily performed by menials and slaves. (Joh 13:2-5, 12-17) He had told his disciples: “Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.” (Mt 23:12; Lu 14:11) The apostle Peter, present that night, remembered Jesus’ fine example in living up to his words. He later admonished fellow believers: “All of you gird yourselves with lowliness of mind toward one another . . . Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.”​—1Pe 5:5, 6.

Two other Hebrew verbs involving “humility” are ka·naʽʹ (literally, subdue [oneself]) and sha·phelʹ (literally, be or become low). In the Christian Greek Scriptures the word ta·pei·no·phro·syʹne is translated “humility” and “lowliness of mind.” It is drawn from the words ta·pei·noʹo, “make low,” and phren, “the mind.”

A person can achieve a state of humility by reasoning on his relationship to God and to his fellowmen, as outlined in the Bible, and then practicing the principles learned. A Hebrew word, hith·rap·pesʹ, translated “humble yourself,” means, literally, “stamp yourself down.” It well expresses the action described by the wise writer of Proverbs: “My son, if you have gone surety for your fellowman, . . . if you have been ensnared by the sayings of your mouth, . . . you have come into the palm of your fellowman: Go humble yourself [stamp yourself down] and storm your fellowman with importunities. . . . Deliver yourself.” (Pr 6:1-5) In other words, throw away your pride, acknowledge your mistake, set matters straight, and seek forgiveness. Jesus admonished that a person humble himself before God like a child and that, instead of trying to be prominent, he minister to or serve his brothers.​—Mt 18:4; 23:12.

Or, a person may learn humility by being brought low, humbled by experience. Jehovah told Israel that he humbled them by causing them to walk 40 years in the wilderness in order to put them to the test so as to know what was in their heart and to make them know that “not by bread alone does man live but by every expression of Jehovah’s mouth does man live.” (De 8:2, 3) Many of the Israelites no doubt profited from this severe experience and gained humility from it. (Compare Le 26:41;2Ch 7:14; 12:6, 7.) If a person or a nation refuses to become humble or to accept humbling discipline, such will suffer humiliation in due time.​—Pr 15:32, 33; Isa 2:11;5:15. [excerpted readings: “humility,” Insight Vol. 1]

“noun form pra·yʹtes “

A New Testament Wordbook, by William Barclay, says of the adjective pra·ysʹ: “In classical Greek this is a lovely word. Of things it means ‘gentle’. It is used, for instance, of a gentle breeze or a gentle voice. Of persons it means ‘mild’ or ‘gracious’. . . . There is gentleness in praus but behind the gentleness there is the strength of steel . . . It is not a spineless gentleness, a sentimental fondness, a passive quietism.” (London, 1956, pp. 103, 104) Vine’s Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words states that the noun form pra·yʹtes “consists not in a person’s ‘outward behaviour only; nor yet in his relations to his fellow-men; as little in his mere natural disposition. Rather it is an in wrought grace of the soul; and the exercises of it are first and chiefly towards God. It is that temper of spirit in which we accept His dealings with us as good, and therefore without disputing or resisting; it is closely linked with the word tapeinophrosunē [humility], and follows directly upon it.’”​—1981, Vol. 3, pp. 55, 56.

The word pra·ysʹ is variously translated in Bible versions “meek,” “mild,” “mild-tempered,” and “gentle.” (KJ, AS, NW, NE) However, as expressed in Barclay’s work quoted in the foregoing, pra·ysʹ goes somewhat deeper than gentleness and, when used of persons, means mild, gracious. [excerpted: Mildness, Insight Vol. 2]

Manifesting Meekness, Gentleness, Graciousness, yet NOT a spineless, stupid creature!! 🙂

(to be meek is to be teachable (which implies a continuous state))

The only website I HIGHLY recommend*(see below)… and btw: I am NOT even recommending my own site here!! For the (public) record and typed by my own boney, blistered, bleeding fingers/heart… this work/documentation/blog/writings and quotings/whatever (kind/unkind) descriptions You Dear Readers:) choose to use)…is merely a very imperfect Index Finger pointing to… Biblical Truth!!!

In no way would I want to take the credit away from (True God Yahweh/Jehovah and a Most Worthy Example of how to live/walk this Earth and practice genuine Compassion–Jesus)…and any other, more-skilled than me… Truth Seekers and Scholars (past and present) who have been pointing the way all along and who have helped me in my own personal progress… on this narrow road… few find…

Perhaps, again what do I know, exactly, may be ? our biggest obstacle is ourselves (and/or our arrogance)…(and our own twisting/hurting minds/thinking…our own flawed human thoughts/ideas about things and not things) in need of desperate reformation and transformation…I LOVE the following sobering quote: “Let the BIBLE…RULE SUPREME”

Capito believed that the Bible was the source of truth. “Let the Bible and the law of Christ always rule supreme in theology,” he stated. According to Dr. Kittelson, Capito “insisted that the chief failing of the scholastic theologians lay in their neglect of the Scriptures.”

 

*Please read this article: reformation-truth-seekers… Capito, Cellarius, Campanus.

Peace People:) and Please continue to precisely…

“Distinguish TRUTH from error!”:)…

Aka don’t be fooled!;)
