Horrible Responsibility #9



This series exists to help me refine my reflections about daily life as I seek:
To worship God and relentlessly seek the expansion of his Kingdom on Earth.


God,

Manasseh, the worst of the worst of kings, a man who burned his sons as a sacrifice to unknown entities, this rogue Judahite humbles himself, pleads mercy unto your name... and you were moved.

2 Chronicles 33:3: He prayed to him, and God was moved by his entreaty and heard his plea and brought him again to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the LORD was God. 

I don't question why you had mercy. I need that same mercy, so I wouldn't dare jeopardize it by asking why. Nevertheless, Father, I ask this in wonder and in honest contemplation. How could you be moved by a man's prayers? Lord, you know all things. You are the Beginning and the End, how can anything move you? Does the prayer of a desperate sinner come as a surprise to you? Surely not. Then how can it be that you were moved? Who are you that you count such a man's prayers as something that draws you to change? How can that be? How can the finite influence the infinite?

  7. Les formes se sont modernisées et le design a désormais toute son importance. Les marques commençaient alors à surfer sur la diversité.
    L’ Ordinateur Portable ne se contente plus d’être posé sur une table, il se montre, s’emporte partout et est facilement personnalisable pour mieux correspondre aux besoins et à la personnalité de l’utilisateur.
    C’est le cas de la gamme Vaio de Sony qui apporte, avec ses différentes séries un véritable plus à l’univers des ordinateurs portables.
    « Je recherche un ordinateur portable puissant, polyvalent, personnsalisable et facile à transporter, pour une utilisation au bureau ou à la maison », voilà une définition qui convient parfaitement à la gamme Vaio de Sony. http://www.batterieschargeur.fr
    Apparue sur le marché dès 1996, la gamme VAIO pour Visual Audio Intelligence Organizer compte actuellement cinq séries (F, E, C, S, et la Série Pro qui remplace la série Z). Chaque série de la gamme Vaio correspond à un besoin spécifique de l’utilisateur.

  8. DACH-Chef Thom: Absatz-Einbruch bei klassischen PCs durch Tablets ausgeglichen - "IT-Markt wächst insgesamt"
    Der PC- und Notebook-Hersteller Acer aus Taiwan hat in den vergangenen Monaten massive Einbußen erlitten. Die weltweiten Verkäufe gingen dem Marktforscher IDC zufolge im 2. Quartal 2013 gegenüber dem Vergleichsquartal des Vorjahres um ein Drittel auf 6,23 Mio. Stück zurück, der Marktanteil der weltweiten Nr. 4 hinter Lenovo, HP und Dell sank von knapp 11 auf nur mehr 8 Prozent.Für den Deutschen Wilfried Thom, der bei Acer für die Region Zentraleuropa und damit auch Österreich verantwortlich ist, zeigen diese Zahlen aber nur einen Teil der Realität. "Der Markt hat sich in den letzten zwei Jahren massiv gewandelt", sagte Thom im Gespräch mit der APA. Es gebe eine zunehmende Substitution der klassischen PCs und Laptops durch Tablets und Smartphones, die von Marktforschern wie IDC oder Dataquest noch nicht genügend gewürdigt werde. http://www.akkuswelt.com

  9. Ԝhile skinny guys need more time to recօver and give their
    body's time to gгow, the еndomorρh needs to кeеp his
    body in an "active" mode as much as possible to keep bսrning the fat.
    Looking good and feеling strօng are good things, right.
    Cheаting a little is okаy, but cheating a lot will just be cheating
    yοurself out of great results.

  10. I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter
    a blog that's both equally educative and interesting, and let me
    tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i'm very happy I found this in my search for something relating
    to this.

  11. I leave a response when I especially enjoy a post on a site or if I have something
    to contribute to the discussion. It's triggered by the sincerness displayed
    in the article I looked at. And on this article "Horrible Responsibility #9".
    I was actually excited enough to drop a thought :) I do have 2 questions for
    you if it's allright. Could it be simply me or do a few
    of these comments look like they are coming from brain dead folks?
    :-P And, if you are writing on additional online sites, I'd like to keep up with
    you. Could you make a list every one of all your communal pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed,
    or linkedin profile?
