Success in marriage is more than finding the right person. It's becoming the right person.

GOD'S COVER LETTER
To: Whom It May Concern . . .
I heard you were considering a new manager in your life.
I would like to apply for the job.
I believe I am the most qualified candidate.
I am the only one that has even done this job successfully.
I was the first manager of human beings. In fact I made them, so naturally I know how humanity works, and what is best to get people back into proper working condition. It will be like having the manufacturer as your personal mechanic.
If this is your first time considering me, I would just like to point out that my salary has already been paid by the blood of my son, Jesus on the cross of Calvary. What I need from you is the acknowledgment that the price is sufficient to pay for all of your sin and your independence from Me.
I need you to believe this in your heart and to tell somebody else about your decision with your mouth.
The next thing I ask for, is the right to change and fix your life so you can learn how to stay close to Me. I will make some major changes and revisions. They are not for you to worry about. I need your permission to execute these changes, in My way and in My time. I will change your desires and give you the strength to make the changes.
Please keep your hands out of the way. Don't try to help me and Don't resist me. I really do need your full commitment and cooperation. If you give me those, the process can go smoothly, without delays.
P.S. I created the heavens and the earth. I AM.
GOD'S RESUME . . .

From the beginning of time. Before the beginning of time. From everlasting to everlasting. I made time.
Created the universe, put the galaxies in place, formed man. Established heaven and earth by My spoken Word and I am currently holding up the world by My power.
EDUCATION AND TRAINING
I AM and I have all knowledge.
Love, Light, and Life (1 John 4:16, 1 John 1:5, John 14:6).

Comfort . . . 2 Corinthians 1:3
Truth . . . John 8:32
Healer . . . 1 Peter 2:24
Strength . . . Philippians 4:13
Forgiveness . . . 1 John 1:9
Provider . . . Philippians 4:19
Mercy . . . Ephesians 2:24
Good . . . Matthew 19:17
Peace . . . Romans 14:17
Willing and ready to take over your life. Able to put your life together again. Will bring all of who I AM into your life. Can start now. Will transform your life if you let Me.
Work in your life has already been paid for through the blood of My Son, Jesus. Your only responsibility is to commit initially and on a daily basis. To trust and obey what Jesus has done and wants to do in your life.

THIS & THAT:
The earth is like a tiny grain of sand, only much, much heavier.
Winter is the season in which people try to keep the house as warm as it was in the summer, when they complained about the heat.

The very first computer that used a stored program and data was built in 1948, and it contained only 1,024 bits! By comparison, a typical desktop computer in 1998 has 32 megabytes, which is equal to 268,435,456 bits.
Before this computer (called "Baby") was built, computers had to be rewired every time they were reprogrammed. Baby's on-screen memory held both data and the instructions in the program, and could be reprogrammed electronically.
Baby was truly a baby, with only 1,024 bits of memory, and it could only run 700 instructions per second, but it was a real computer. Today's best computers have millions of times as much memory and run millions of times faster.
