The Book of Sirach Ch Two v- One thru Four

1 My child, when you come to serve the Lord, prepare yourself for trials. 2 Be sincere of heart and steadfast, and do not be impetuous in time of adversity. 3 Cling to him, do not leave him, that you may prosper in your last days. 4 Accept whatever happens to you; in periods of humiliation be patient. 5 For in fire gold is tested, and the chosen, in the crucible of humiliation. 6 Trust in God, and he will help you; make your ways straight and hope in him.

It is difficult to not write about your own life when Scripture talks to you one-on-one. Many times, the Word of God speaks differently each moment you go back to the same Scripture or hear Jesus speak in a different Gospel. You feel compelled to talk of firsthand experiences each and every time for in your growth by your surrender to His Way you find peace, passion and purpose to live for God First. Not a cliché but His Way of Life. “My child, when you come to serve the Lord, prepare yourself for trials.” The life of Christ is and always will be filled with trials and tribulations where even the darkest of humiliations come to light from not living in God as a child growing into an adult for circumstances can and will lead to these abrupted decisions that placed us in harm’s way either by force or by and act of life’s saturations. You become what you immerse yourself in be it retaliation or de-escalation evils works or Divine providence you choose and they can become very dark and will only be forgiven in a one-on-one decision to ask God by His Son for forgiveness. Instead of telling a story that has been spoken of time-and -time again I decided to write a song about this hope in Him. The way of the Lord can and will fill you with Redemption that overcomes all crimes no matter what the world or any other being will tell you; its between you and the Christ who died for your sin and forgives you if you can give everything to Him first. Amen.

Humiliations crucible come what may

In the midst of life's embrace,

A journey filled with love and pain,

I find solace in the divine grace,

Serving God first, my heart's refrain.

I'll serve Him first, through love and strife,

In every season, through joys and pains,

Patiently soaking in the crucible of life,

In humility, my soul remains.

When love's sweet whispers come my way,

And alluring temptations try to sway,

I'll hold steadfast, not led astray,

For God's love is my guiding ray.

I'll serve Him first, through love and strife,

In every season, through joys and pains,

Patiently soaking in the crucible of life,

In humility, my soul remains.

In the crucible of humiliation's fire,

Like gold I'll be refined and purified,

For God's plan is my heart's desire,

In His presence, I'll always confide.

Though the world may mock and scorn,

I'll bear the weight of humiliation's thorn,

For in serving God, my soul is reborn,

In His love, my spirit is adorned.

I'll serve Him first, through love and strife,

In every season, through joys and pains,

Patiently soaking in the crucible of life,

In humility, my soul remains.

So, let me serve Him, come what may,

With unwavering faith, day by day,

For in His love, I'll always stay,

Serving God first, come what may. 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 a little boy named David Alexander. Praise God thank You Jesus. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Humiliations crucible truth concept**

Trials prepare for when the Lord is served

Steadfast heart sincere impulsivity withdraw

Him cling God first leave Him not reserved

Days last prosper you as a good son-in-law

Happens whatever God helps to accept

Patient in humiliation periods too

Humiliations crucible truth concept

Tested like gold in fire to prove

God trust Him hope straight ways groove
