The art of manifesting is taking your dreams, desires and wishes and making them into tangible things that you want. A lot of people want a larger house, more money, love or a new car. The secret to getting them is visualization and a positive attitude.In Fear and Trembling
It is easy to find a knowledgeable Christian; easy to find someone involved in ministry; easy, in our Western world, to find Bibles – even one with its owner’s name and scrawl all the way through it; easy to find Christians committed to supporting those in the mission field; easy to find Hillsong-type conference-going Christians; comparatively easy to find Christians who put their money where their mouths are – who give a tithe back to their local church; and, easy to find Christians with powerful views on their faith and a theology backing their faith up. What is not so easy to find is a vulnerable Christian; vulnerable before God and all humanity.
Our experience of life reveals a disparity to the truth; we see evil rewarded and piety punished. This is much the reason why people walk from the faith. They see little evidence of the justice of God where it most counts. But there is an answer, and this psalm reveals it.

And everything makes more sense from that designation.Thanksgiving: A Moment of Reflection
