See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

Fame and celebrity.




The worthless are prized highly by the sons of men. - Psalm 12: 9
.
For the wicked man boasts of his heart's desires;

the covetous blasphemes and spurns the Lord.
In his pride the wicked says: "He will not punish.
There is no God." Such are his thoughts. - Psalm 10: 3-4
.
Help, O Lord, for good men have vanished;
truth has gone from the sons of men.
Falsehood they speak one to another,
with lying lips, with a false heart. - Psalm 12:2-3
.
No truth can be found in their mouths,

their heart is all mischief,
their throat a wide-open grave,
all honey their speech. - Psalm 5: 10
.
They wear their pride like a necklace,
they clothe themselves with violence...
They scoff; they speak with malice...
So the people turn to follow them
and drink in all of their words.
Look at them, such are the wicked,
but untroubled, they grow in wealth. - Psalm 72: 6-12
.
God looks down from heaven
on the sons of men
to see if any are wise,
if any seek God.
All have left the right path;
depraved every one.
There is not a good man left,
no, not even one. - Psalm 52: 3-4
.
The worthless are prized highly by the sons of men. - Psalm 12: 9
.
'Lord have mercy on me,
heal my soul for I have sinned against you.' - Psalm 40: 5

    I'm worthless and a nobody to boot.

    Thanks for the heads up.

  2. There is nothing that expresses the cry of the heart better than the Psalms.
    I love the Scriptures.

  3. This is not accurate...

    We are not "worthless"...

    "for God so loved the world that He sent His only Begotten Son"

    "you are worth more than MANY sparrows"


    And on and on...


    We should "little" yes, like St Therese wrote, but never WORTHLESS..


    I have had mortal men tell me that i am junk, I am hopeless, I don't deserve to be loved, that I am nothing, that I am too stupid to learn how to play a guitar..

    They are WRONG WRONG WRONG...

    Listen to Pink's new song "Perfect" There's an R rated and a PG rated version. Mainly for language.

    We are made in the image of God, we are His Creation, we are Perfect.

    God doesn't make "junk." God loves me warts and all, and He loves me no matter what. Men do not.

    Amen.
