With ALL thy STRENGTH




REMEMBER: You are dust, 
and to dust you shall return.



REPENT, and believe the GOSPEL+. 
+  +  +


Most HOLY and Most Merciful ABBA... 

We confess to THEE and to one another and to the whole communion of saints in Heaven and on earth and before Your Heavenly Host... 

that we have sinned
by our own fault

in thought, word, and deed; 

by what we have DONE
and by what we have
LEFT UN-DONE. 

 As it is written:

Thou shalt love The LORD thy GOD, The ELOHIM, with ALL thy heart, with ALL of thy soul, and with ALL  thy mind, and with all of thy strength.  

This is the first and great commandment.

So now, we confess to THEE, O LORD:

We have FAILED to love THEE 
with ALL of our strength.
+ + + 

We all want to be "strong" , not weak, in mind, in spirit, in heart, and in body. 
However, human strength at its best is sheer weakness in the eyes of The ELOHIM. We are only strong in the eyes of weak men who are naturally-minded, focused on this transitory and temporary life. Natural strength passes away with the sunset. 

Scripture tell us: 

HIS+ Strength is 
made perfect
in weakness. 

Therefore, the sooner we accept this TRUTH, the more we may draw upon HIS+ Strength.  
The more honest and humble we become about our own natural power,  the more joyous we grow in our weakness. 
 
  And HE+ said unto me,
My+ Grace is sufficient for thee: 
for My+ Strength is 
made perfect 
in weakness. 
Most gladly 
therefore will I 
rather 
glory in my infirmities, 
that the power 
of  CHRIST+
may rest upon me.
  Therefore I take pleasure 
in infirmities, 
in reproaches,
 in necessities,
 in persecutions, 
in distresses 
for CHRIST'S+ sake: 

for when I am weak, 
then am I strong.

2 Corinthians 12: 9-10


+  +  +

 Let us pray:

O LORD My+ GOD, I have been on the wrong track; I have sought human strength and prowess.  I have foolishly set my energies to achieve all that my natural man could achieve in my own strength. 

Help me to forsake the zest for fake, transitory strength and set my energies towards KNOWING YOU+,  instead.

Change my view of weakness. Change my idea of REAL STRENGTH. 

Melt me. 

Mold me.  

Fill me with Your+ Strength.

Use me. 

In my weakness, I come to YOU+.  Establish Your+ strength in my weakness, O LORD,  however it pleases YOU.+   

 In The Name of The LORD JESUS CHRIST I pray .
Amen. 
+  +  +

 Create in me a clean heart, 
O GOD and renew a right spirit within me. 
Cast me not away 
from Thy+ Presence; 

and take not Thy HOLY SPIRIT
from me. 

Restore unto me 
the joy of Thy+ SALVATION; 
and uphold me with Thy free spirit.
Psalm 51
+  +  +


Ashes to Ashes,

Dust to Dust

in sure and certain hope
of the Resurrection

unto Eternal Life

through

JESUS CHRIST
our LORD.
