Today’s Notes:

1. “Now a certain man was there having been in his infirmity thirty-eight years. Jesus, perceiving this one lying down, and knowing that he has already spent much time, is saying to him, “Do you want to become SOUND?” (John 5:5, 6 – CLV)

2. “Now there was yet a certain man there, having continuously[spent] thirty-eight years within his illness (weakness; infirmity). Jesus, having seen this man presently (or: habitually) lying [there], and intimately knowing (or: knowing from personal experience) that he already continues having[spent] much time [thus], He says to him, “Do you continue purposing to become SOUND IN HEALTH?” (or: “Are you habitually intending or presently wanting to become restored to your original healthy condition?”)”
(John 5:5, 6 – JMNT)

3. “May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together—spirit, soul, and body—and keep you fit…”
(I Thessalonians 5:23 – The Message)

4. “Joy is a return to the deep harmony of body, mind, and spirit that was yours at birth and that can be yours again. That openness to love, that capacity for wholeness with the world around you, is still within you.” – Deepak Chopra

5. “You are whole and also part of larger and larger circles of wholeness you may not even know about. You are never alone. And you already belong. You belong to humanity. You belong to life. You belong to this moment, this breath.” – Jon Kabat-Zinn

6. “Is anyone among you habitually experiencing weakness or normally infirm? Let him at once call to himself the older folks of the called-out community, and then let them speak well-being (or: pray goodness) upon him, anointing (or: massaging) him with olive oil in union with and in [the authority of] the Lord’s…Name…and then faith’s impartation of well-being…will progressively deliver (restore to health; rescue; save) the one being continuously labored to weariness and exhaustion, and then the Lord…will proceed causing him to rise…” (James 5: JMNT)

7. “Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made or dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused.” – Alan Cohen
