God's Beauty... in Mathematics?

1 x 8 + 1 = 9
12 x 8 + 2 = 98
123 x 8 + 3 = 987
1234 x 8 + 4 = 9876
12345 x 8 + 5 = 98765
123456 x 8 + 6 = 987654
1234567 x 8 + 7 = 9876543
12345678 x 8 + 8 = 98765432
123456789 x 8 + 9 = 987654321

1 x 9 + 2 = 11
12 x 9 + 3 = 111
123 x 9 + 4 = 1111
1234 x 9 + 5 = 11111
12345 x 9 + 6 = 111111
123456 x 9 + 7 = 1111111
1234567 x 9 + 8 = 11111111
12345678 x 9 + 9 = 111111111
123456789 x 9 +10= 1111111111

9 x 9 + 7 = 88
98 x 9 + 6 = 888
987 x 9
+ 5 = 8888
9876 x 9 + 4 = 88888
98765 x 9 + 3 = 888888
987654 x 9 + 2 = 8888888
9876543 x 9 + 1 = 88888888
98765432 x 9 + 0 = 888888888


Brilliant, isn't it?

And look at this symmetry:

1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 =
121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 =
1234321
11111 x 11111 = 123454321
111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 x 1111111 =
1234567654321
11111111 x 11111111 = 123456787654321
111111111 x 111111111 =12345678987654321

Mind Boggling... but not to God. He put it together like this. I wanna know who took the time to FIGURE IT OUT?

Now, take a look at this...

101%


From a strictly mathematical viewpoint:


What Equals
100%?

What does it mean to give MORE than
100%?

Ever wonder about those people who say they
are giving more than
100%?

We have all been in situations where someone wants you to
GIVE OVER 100%...

How about
ACHIEVING 101%?

What equals
100% in life?

Here's a little mathematical formula that might help answer these questions:


If:


A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U
V W X Y Z

Is represented as:


1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

Then:

H-A-R-D-W-O- R- K

8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%


And:

K-N-O-W-L-E- D-G-E

11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+ 5 = 96%


But:


A-T-T-I-T-U- D-E

1+20+20+9+20+ 21+4+5 = 100%

THEN, look how far the love of God will take you:

L-O-V-E-O-F- G-O-D
12+15+22+5+15+ 6+7+15+4 = 101%

Therefore, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that:

While
Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, It's the Love of God that will put you over the top!



God has been working so brilliantly in my life in the past few weeks. I feel like He is just taking me one step at a time, day by day, not showing me where I'll be tomorrow, but saying "Here's where I've got you TODAY!" So I'm following today and trusting Him with each new tomorrow. =0)
