From Gary... Oh, to be a feather from God!!!


Each of us is different- in this whole world, I have never met another person who was EXACTLY LIKE ME AND NEITHER WILL YOU!!! About now, you are saying: What about identical twins?  Well, we are more than just our genetic make-up, aren't we? Even twins have differing experiences in life, so, because of this even they will be slightly different!!!  And because of our differences we add something to the whole world.  This video impressed me greatly with the value of each component part and its effect upon the whole.  Even some of the comments were interesting.  Here is just one of them:
Olga Gotting This is a life lesson. Choose wisely, be quiet and patient, be prepared to bend, twist and turn gracefully and put all your concentration in achieving a strong successful life for we are as feathers in the wind otherwise.

Olga is right in saying what she does, but I should like to add the following verses from the Bible...

Romans 8:28 NASB
(28)  And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

1 Corinthians 12:4-31 NASB
(4)  Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit.
(5)  And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord.
(6)  There are varieties of effects, but the same God who works all things in all persons.
(7)  But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.

(8)  For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of knowledge according to the same Spirit;
(9)  to another faith by the same Spirit, and to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit,
(10)  and to another the effecting of miracles, and to another prophecy, and to another the distinguishing of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, and to another the interpretation of tongues.
(11)  But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually just as He wills.
(12)  For even as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ.
(13)  For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.
(14)  For the body is not one member, but many.
(15)  If the foot says, "Because I am not a hand, I am not a part of the body," it is not for this reason any the less a part of the body.
(16)  And if the ear says, "Because I am not an eye, I am not a part of the body," it is not for this reason any the less a part of the body.
(17)  If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole were hearing, where would the sense of smell be?
(18)  But now God has placed the members, each one of them, in the body, just as He desired.
(19)  If they were all one member, where would the body be?
(20)  But now there are many members, but one body.
(21)  And the eye cannot say to the hand, "I have no need of you"; or again the head to the feet, "I have no need of you."
(22)  On the contrary, it is much truer that the members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary;
(23)  and those members of the body which we deem less honorable, on these we bestow more abundant honor, and our less presentable members become much more presentable,
(24)  whereas our more presentable members have no need of it. But God has so composed the body, giving more abundant honor to that member which lacked,
(25)  so that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another.
(26)  And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.
(27)  Now you are Christ's body, and individually members of it.
(28)  And God has appointed in the church, first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, various kinds of tongues.
(29)  All are not apostles, are they? All are not prophets, are they? All are not teachers, are they? All are not workers of miracles, are they?
(30)  All do not have gifts of healings, do they? All do not speak with tongues, do they? All do not interpret, do they?
(31)  But earnestly desire the greater gifts. And I show you a still more excellent way.

Every single person out there should strive to be the best they possibly can be!!!  If this be true for everyone, then how much more for those who follow the greatest human being who ever lived- Jesus?? And if this be true for one Christian, then it is true for all. Then, what if they really sought his guidance, did what they could do in this life, and did it with all the love they individually (and collectively) could?  At this point, I probably could be going with infinite possibilities, but I think you probably get where I am going with all this!!!  Each person is like a feather, and that feather does in fact change the world!!! How true- and if the feather is a God controlled one, then be prepared to be amazed!!!!!
