FAITH AND HOPE
Faith and Hope Against Fear and Loss.
We hear so many sayings or expressions on a daily basis throughout each and every day as the year goes by..
The question is what do some of them mean, yet really, one could say, what do they all mean and how do they play out in my life. Or do they? What can I do to be in control and to not be tormented mentally?
For you see I believe that words carry power and they are greatly responsible for what we are and then become long term.
We have all heard the expression of “bless you” and yet most of us say it without any regard to understanding the meaning. Yet those two words carry with them a huge power and anointing.
First, a little etymology, we must begin with where these words originated from in terms of usage with man. I know for many you will stop reading here after I mention the origination of these words, the concept of “blessing”.
DISCLAIMER: THIS IS NOT A RELIGIOUS NOR POLITICAL POST:
This is strictly an ETYMOLOGY (WORD) STUDY: So do not ascribe it’s posting as permission for religious or political post to be made by others.
Let’s start with the definition as to dictionaries: you can do your own research!
These are directly from google search:
–to bless= pronounce words in a religious rite, to confer or invoke divine favor upon; ask God to look favorably upon.
–it is like: bestow, commend to God, benedicite, commend, praise, sprinkle with holy water, consecrate, confirm, give benediction, anoint and anoint with oil.
—SYN. –endow, favor, provide grace, bestow, furnish, entrust, present, grant, vouchsafe, afford, accord, give, donate, confer on, lavish on, endue.
Now after this following statement many will leave and stop reading because they do not believe and think this is some kind of religious treatise which it is not. HOWEVER, from ALL the studies made, this word and this concept is stated and said to have originated in the Garden of Eden moments after God created it all. God started out by SPEAKING “saying” and then He saw it was all “GOOD”. After creating man and woman he saw it was good and He BLESSED them, that is, He invoked Divine favor on them. God spoke, He looked and saw it was “good”, He was “happy” and glad, and He saw man in His own Image and He then Blessed them to be fruitful and to rule over all and thus partner with God. But then this man committed high treason, and God saw wickedness come on the earth due to the willful evil acts of men. Now the blessing would not work. But God did not quit. He start to look for anyone that would behave in a righteous way so He could set into force an agreement with them to bless them and through them the world. So then, there was the flood, which has scientific evidence bearing it out as something that did happen. So now Noah comes onto the scene, and God blessed Noah and his family, But then we have the tragic events of the “tower of Babel”. But, again God did not give up because He again started looking around for someone and found a man that He knew would be a willing candidate, that would by choice choose to follow God. It was Abram and so God Blessed Abram who, because he covenanted with God became Abraham, all this is just history in the Jewish and Arab world and it is hard to deny history. Abraham became a righteous man by God’s own standards and through him all men became blessed.
That is the origination of “to Bless” and it is a force in our midst today because God never quits,
though at times you may. He never does and that is the basic concept of “to be blessed”; that is, God never quits in His efforts to help and give divine favor to any man ready to accept it by faith and belief. We are told that God’s eyes go throughout all the earth searching for those that He can bless. This implies a very emphatic concept of what God is looking for from any man to Bless him. There is not a lack of many that believe on a God or those that say He is Lord, however, it seems there is something a little more specific in what God is looking for that resides in the heart of a man or woman giving them candidacy for a “blessing” from Him. In all the studies and searchings it is found that God only removes Himself from those that will not believe nor acknowledge Him as existent.
Thus, we understand that “to Bless” is an act of Faith. It is the force to make happen success and bring hope and joy as a reward to those acting in faith.
Now lets go back to the forces of:
Faith and Hope over against Fear and Loss.
First let us acknowledge that these are basic human behavior traits not spread across to all the animal kingdom of living beings.
Faith is a substantive thing that works at generating hope and the converse is the same for fear and loss. When you have faith it means it comes alive for you and similarily when you have fear it dies. Notice that this force that works in all humans starts with the feelings, the emotions, and then it creeps into the “what if” or the “maybe” stage of the brain and eventually begins to enforce itself on the mind or the thinking. From there it takes on words that become spoken and these are the engines that make things come to pass. So, if you think it, but do not say it then you have begun an effort to control and eventually make happen or eliminate that thing, whether by faith or by fear.
Let’s say you think something not the best about you and your spouse and then you state it.
The result is not the best, there could be an argument and bad feelings get exposed that most of the time do not accomplish anything good. But lets say you shut your mouth and do not give voice to those thoughts, the outcome is after a day or two you have forgotten it all and your spouse was never the wiser, so now peace continues to reign.

Another thing that can be said is that Faith Blesses but Fear Destroys!
Faith shows love and fear shows hate; Faith is uplifting and brings joy; Fear is judgmental and condemning
So listen to people, check out how they write, that is, check out how people express themselves and you will know the core state of their heart. That is, if the core is of faith and hope or fear and loss. Positive joy and gladness or negative distress, fault-finding and complaining. Many of us have heard the expression, “check out your heart” as related to feelings and emotions.
Now how is Company connected to the words “be blessed”. That is easy to answer from the very start.
This company some 15 plus years ago even though under a different name when it started was looking at the idea to “bless” those that joined or enrolled as to become members.
So you see, I say all of this because the heart of Henry the heart of Compumatrix and the Board is to bring Faith, Hope, and Joy at being over comers of challenges; and accomplishers of what for some seemed impossible. It is to make it possible for everyone to succeed in the scope of their dreams. Compumatrix seeks to be one of the integral answers for peoples needs and generate joy and the sense of well being. I remind you of our motto; E, E and E in life. I know it but do you?
