4. ADVENTNA NEDELJA

4. adventna nedelja

Sv. Jožef je glavni "junak" v današnji božji besedi. Preprost mož, delavec. Zaročil se je z dekletom iz vasi. Običajno življenje si je načrtoval: poroka, družina, delo. Preprosto delavsko življenje v majhnem kraju.

 

Lepi načrti pa so bili prekrižani z življenjem, ki ni šlo po Jožefovem načrtu. Njegovo dekle je noseče, pričakuje otroka. Lahko si samo predstavljamo kakšna reakcija bi bila v tistem času, v majhnme kraju. Jožef je skušal urediti tako, da bi bil "volk sit in koza cela". Zaročenko bo skrivaj odslovil, da je ne bodo "požrli'' zlobni jeziki. Najprej njo, potem pa še njega. Ni mogel spati ob takem premišljevanju.

 

Včasih nam stvari, ki se zgodijo, ne dajo spati. Pride bolezen, smrt, težave, ki jih imamo sami ali pa kdo v naši družini in nam ne dajo spati. Hvala Bogu, če znamo in zmoremo v takem času moliti. Moliti za to, naj se zgodi Božja volja. Moliti, da bi naredili, kar Bog pričakuje, načrtuje za nas.

 

Včasih načrti niso prekrižani nam ampak komu od naših bližnjih. Se bomo umaknili kolikor se da, ali pa pristopili in pomagali po svojih močeh? Sv. Jožef je sprejel, da bo spremljal svojo nsečo zaročenko in se poročil z njo. Kaj so zato rekli v vasi? Morda je bilo celo lažje bežati v Egipt kot pa živeti v domači vasi?

 

Glej devica bo spočela in rodila sina in imenovali ga bodo Emanuel, kar pomeni Bog z nami. To napoved smo slišali v prvem berilu pri preroku Izaiju. Evangelist Matej piše evangelij posebno z mislijo na spreobrnjene Jude, ki so postali kristjani. Z navajanjem iz stare zaveze pokaže, da se v Jezusu izpolnjujejo obljube stare zaveze.

 

Ampak vmes med obljubo, ki jo je izrekel prerok Izaija in izpolnitvijo v Jezusu Kristusu je minilo kakih 700 let! Ali je res tako čudno, če so se mnogi Judje naveličali čakati in ko je Emanuel končno prišel, niso bili pripravljeni nanj?

 

Naš čas in Božji čas se večkrat ne ujemata. Potrebna sta vera in zaupanje, da bi dali mesto Bogu in njegovemu načrtu v življenju. Sv. Jožef je imel in ima še danes izjemno vlogo, ki je takrat gotovo še ni videl, ko se je v stiski premetaval po postelji in premišljeval in molil kaj naj naredi. Bogu je prepustil, da vodi njegovo življenje in svetovno zgodovino, sam pa je bil pripravljen opraviti svojo nalogo, ko jo je spoznal. Čudoviti zgled in model ravnanja!

 

Naša vera nam pove, da je Emanuel resnično to, kar pove ime: Bog z nami. Ne samo na Božič temveč vedno, posebno v pa v kakšnoh nepredvidljivih, tudi težkih in zahtevnih obdobjih in trenutkih življenja. Za vzgled in priprošnjika si vzemimo sv. Jožefa, ki je molil in bil pripravljen sprejeti bol ple,enito rešitev iz ljubezni do Boga in do svoje zaročenke, torej iz ljubezni do bližnjega.

Trying To Find The Best Diet Pill?

Trying to find the best diet pill may seem like an impossible task, especially with the multitude of diet pills available for purchase. Many people purchase a diet pill only to find out that the pill makes them feel jittery, nervous, or often has no effect at all.

Diet pills frequently contain the same or similar combination of ingredients and rarely contain anything new, innovative, or undiscovered to the supplement / weight loss industry. So, how can you find the best diet pill when most diet pills are made with similar ingredients?

One of the most common problems associated with taking diet pills is that the person taking the diet pill is uneducated about the dosage, effects, and promises offered as they relate to each diet pill. The research at website finds that there are three factors that should be taken into consideration when deciding to take a diet pill.

Dosage:
It is important to take the pill exactly as recommended on the product label. Some people choose to increase the dosage thinking that the product will work faster or better. This is not the case, and many people become sick in response to the large dose. Reviewers at website often suggest that the recommended dosage be cut in half to give the body time to adjust to the stimulant in the diet pill. After the body has adjusted, it is fine to begin taking the regular dosage as recommended on the product label.

Effects:
The effects listed on the product label are there because these are the effects that the product has had on 'some' of the test group. Some of the diet pill testers may be fine taking the product, while others may have adverse effects. The diet pill companies print this information to educate the buyer as well as to protect themselves from lawsuits. The consumer needs to read the label and educate themselves before taking the product. Many people who are sensitive to caffeine are surprised when the diet pill makes them feel nervous or nauseous, but this information is likely printed on the product, so with a little research these affects can be avoided.

Promises:
If you read the fine print on product claims for diet pills and other weight loss supplements, you will see 'results not typical' printed very small somewhere where you are not expected to look. The diet pills advertised on television are responsible for some of the most outlandish claims. The results claimed in these advertisements are often unattainable within the given amount of time outlined in the ad. Don't expect to see results in two weeks like a lot of ads claim.

Wouldn't it be great if you could read reviews for diet pills from actual users of each diet pill? Diet Pill Reviews website has taken the trouble out of searching for the best diet pill. You can read reviews of over 150 of the most popular diet pills available.
