Post details: "That's exactly the way that I want it." - AMEN!

"That's exactly the way that I want it." - AMEN!

Amen \A`men"\, v. To say Amen to; to sanction fully. ...
a statement to express assent or approval.

A friend of mine taught me to equate the word "amen" with "Thats exactly how I want it."

When you wake up tomorrow and realize that you have no money, try this: "Well ... amen! , Amen. Well, just amen."

When you wake up tomorrow and recollect that people have been slandering you let your heart say: "Amen, Well, amen."

When someone takes too long at the ATM, try saying to God: "Amen. Well ... amen, just amen."

When your image has been torn down by embarrassing mishaps, or hatred, why not release it and simply say: "Amen, Lord, amen."

Problems arise as pressure to push us into God's presence. Do not try to shrink the problems by force. Instead yield to them, and give way. Let them cause you to rely upon Him. Do not struggle for control that you will never have. Don't fret. Say "amen."

You can always tell carnality by the struggle to press back against problems, but maturity in Christians is determined as maturity in plumbs ... the ripe ones will yield to pressure.

"For what can one add to, or take away from, the Word of the Most High? Let My beloved say, “Amen” ... Even, “Amen and amen. Your will be done, oh Lord”." ~ Yahshua

Hi Trent,

I guess I'll know when I'm ripe enough for picking when I say, "Amen. That's exactly the way I want it." and not only yield my will to His but really mean it from the heart in every circumstance.
