Most vehicles have a warning system when their fuel tank gets low. To prevent them from running out of gas. Then we stop and refuel it.. For Christians we need prayer , praise, and the word of God as our refueling. We need to keep our tanks full. We should not let our tank get low.

Thank you. I am on a renewed relationship with Christ and I no longer believe the lies from the evil one that I was taught as a kid. I'm still a kid in this new walk with God, but He's ok with it and I'm down for that! smile

Please do not be offended ,but if you feel like commenting on the food for thought weekly post that is cool but just random post was not my idea for this thread . I appreciate comments and it might seem petty but I hope you understand . I really am not trying to offend. It just makes it harder to keep the food for thought postings in order


It is not about what really can and can not be posted here .
In order for me to quickly post the things I need to post it is more efficient to click on the number and pick up where I left off . If someone post a comment concerning the thread that is no big deal . But if there are just conversations going on I have to scroll through everyone's conversation to get to the last place I left off. It is time consuming to post the weekly threads as it is . This is not to deter people from reading the threads just asking that if you want to comment on a particular post such as if it effected you or caused you to reflect on it that is cool and appreciated . It also lets me no that I am not just wasting my time . It is very time consuming to make the post fit without them running across the screen . I have a wife and 5 kids one with special needs "down syndrome" It all boils down to a time factor . It might not seem like much but everyone has there quirks . Thank you

Maybe it would be better if you just tell people what they should or should not post on here then. The term food for thought is pretty random. I did not take offense to you saying what you said the first time but I guess you get upset when someone post on here it seems. I will choose to stay of your thread then. Sorry for any inconvenience my posts caused to you.

let me apologize right now because that is not and will never be my intent. My post are meant for reflection & self examination. If you do not agree with my post or my faith that is fine everyone is at a different place in their life & also has the right to believe in what they want . I will not argue or debate i just want to share what i feel the holy spirit directs me to write. If you feel it is not for you than that is just fine but if it touches you and causes you to reflect and take inventory of your life that is also great . I also believe god gives us all we need to overcome our situations & circumstances .He gives us all we need to accomplish this . It is up to us to do the work. i always try to be honest & come with the truth and yes it hurts sometimes so brace yourself . if you can not handle it than stop now
and turn back. if you disagree with it that is fine feel free to make your own thread please do not read if
you do not take into consideration what this disclaimer explains . now it is on you . peace & blessings and may you be blessed and inspired to go to work




____________________________________________________________

The Truth of a situation or circumstance can NOT
Be discovered through feelings but from Conformation from God
Truth shall be Revealed not by emotion but the very Spirit of God
Consult The Heavenly Father for Truth to be Revealed
Through the situation or circumstance for an Understanding
Otherwise you are leaning on your own understanding


____________________________________________________________

What you actually DO
Says MORE about your belief in God
More so than what you say you believe about God


____________________________________________________________

When you understand the great gift of salvation
And that you have been forgiven
it is a whole lot easier to forgive
Therefore go and forgive
because you have been forgiven


____________________________________________________________

Understanding salvation and accepting salvation
are completely 2 different matters
Your lifestyle will be the evidence

____________________________________________________________

The communication line Must be opened There Must be Sincere Heartfelt Prayer
The Knees is were God Must be found
There is a Force in & through out this
Perfectly formed Universe
He can be found & spoken to through this open communication of Prayer
He Yearns for Deep Deep intimacy with YOU talk to Him

____________________________________________________________

Humble yourself before Almighty God in prayer
Time spent Earnestly Seeking His face
will Result in the most Important relationship
Open your flesh to the ONE
who Can Tame it
For it is well known the flesh will Not Submit
to your own authority
Power comes from on High
& Is readily available for those who Submit
to the One who IS above ALL things


____________________________________________________________

It is Not you but the very Spirit within yourself
That Can Empower you to do Great & Mighty things
You Must Realize that The Spirit is were the Power comes from

____________________________________________________________

Marriage was created to Sanctify one another
Through the Trials & Test you Will face
To show thyself approved
Forgiveness is the Ultimate form of Love
Agape Love
what better way to Exercise this Love than Marriage
To be the head Serving in the same capacity as Christ
is Truly something to behold
To give yourself over to your Wife as to die for her
to become Selfless not Selfish
To enter into marriage is to enter into a Covenant which can Not be broken
even by law
To enter into marriage is to be excepting of this Divine Sanctifying Process


____________________________________________________________

You may have Prayed today
But have you Prayed on your
KNEES

____________________________________________________________

Truth usually will hurt you
Truth will usually cut you to your core
It has to
Truth has to cut through all the falsehoods
& misconceptions
When it cuts through all the compromise & justification
Only than can Truth finally be exposed
Only than Truth can finally be seen

____________________________________________________________


What is your God ? Who is your God ?
is it the God of the bible ?
is it the God of facebook?
the God of work , cars,games,gambling,
sex,pornography,? What is your God



____________________________________________________________

Realize that the way you live your life
Every single day
Is a Direct Testimony about who God is in your life


____________________________________________________________

Fathers if you are not leading your
family in devotion & are leaving it all up to the church
to train Your children in the way they should go
You need to step your game up and Teach Your children
It is NOT the churches job to do the job Christ has placed in Your hands


____________________________________________________________

When you face a crisis in life
What you truly believe about God
will
IN FACT
Be Represented in your Actions



____________________________________________________________


All of your shortcomings all of your past failures
The liabilities in your life
are nothing more than opportunity for God
Put God in all of that and it is called a Testimony
Take God out of that and all you are left with is
A life of shame guilt and condemnation & deservedly so
This is why The Savior came to Save us from ourselves
To do His will Not our own will


____________________________________________________________

A lot of people think that they chose to come to Christ
Truth is He has chosen You
Through all of the sin and wreckage we have caused in our lives
He has given a way out
That out is The Savior Jesus Christ
Free will has enabled us to make a mess out of our life
All the things we blame God for is nothing more than free will at work



____________________________________________________________


We can do Nothing on or own accord
Because the Father shows us what to do
And that is to Honor Christ in doing so
The Father is Honored
When these two things come together we are able
To do Abundantly more than ever thought possible


____________________________________________________________


When we chose to deny self
this allowed God to choose us
not that we chose him
But because He First Loved us




____________________________________________________________

To live life for Christ is to Live life
Period


____________________________________________________________

You can study the Scriptures diligently
& even be able to quote them on demand
Yet if you think you have eternal life you are sadly mistaken
For if you hear & do not obey the word
It is all Rot
One must hear the word & obey it
This is the difference between those who have eternal life & those who do Not


____________________________________________________________


You need no proof of God existence
Because He has placed His laws within Everyone's heart
There is only denial of obedience to these laws
For how does one no right from wrong without even being taught


____________________________________________________________

God chooses his people
When they open their hearts
to something bigger than themselves
When this occurs
He completely Reveals Himself
The God of the Universe loves you
& wants a Relationship with
YOU
He is just waiting to choose you


____________________________________________________________

Living for self now that is easy
Easy and dangerous being lead by the senses
never ends well
Living for Christ is hard but
The Spirit
NEVER
Has told me to do wrong & led me down the wrong path


____________________________________________________________

Why do we tend to hoard things in our souls
Shame -Guilt - Sin -Bad Habits -Hurt-Pain -Unforgiveness
Choosing to hoard things holding on to them as if they were gold
God wants to come in and remove the hoard clean it out
Set your soul free let him organize and declutter the things you are holding onto

____________________________________________________________


All glory all honor to you lord
may you receive all the glory
and that there be none left among men
for you alone deserve all the glory
thank you for your peace your understanding
and most of all your will
thank you for The Christ
who saved me from drowning in my filth
from my sin you set me free
so I humble myself before you to be made low
so you may be lifted up and exalted
lord decrease me so that you may increase
and allow me to be a vessel
to be used by you and for you
I except your calling
I except your will for my life
thank you for this opportunity to serve you
and honor you in Jesus name Amen



____________________________________________________________

Why would you go diving in head first into the sea of Forgetfulness
Swimming out after the things God has placed there
Only to bring it back to the shores of
Shame & Guilt
Leave it ALONE leave it where it Belongs



____________________________________________________________

It is our Suffering that brings us Closer
to Christ
Because through suffering
we find out All that we are Not
We are able to truly see our Dependence on God
Suffering enables us to see God in his rightful place
That is above Everything in our lives



____________________________________________________________


Our sin was Crucified with Christ
The old is dead because of this
Now You can live
the new life Christ has called you to live
Because the old has been crucified in death
Allowing the newness In Christ
to transform our lives and Live



____________________________________________________________

The reason we are to bear fruit
is to bring Glory to God
In bearing fruit the world can See
that we Belong to Christ
This Gives Glory to God when we bear fruit
For it puts before the world
Christ in us on Display



____________________________________________________________

Live in the spiritual realm
For when you do live in the spiritual
Problems are only opportunity to overcome
and weaknesses become your strengths
Living in the senses
A problem is just a problem & a weakness stays weak
Get out of the natural and elevate to the spiritual



____________________________________________________________


Where is your Treasure ? is it here on earth storing up things that will fade away ?
because your heart will divulge your treasure for where ever your treasure is
there your heart will be also
The world NEEDS You
to be an Example for Christ will you be ?


____________________________________________________________

The Gospel of Christ Saved my life
I wish I could put into words what it means to be SAVED
Even though it all does not make sense to those who no not of my Savior
All I can do is ask that you Try Jesus He will Not fail you
He will Save you from the one thing you can not save yourself from
That is Sin the sin that brings a heavy heart to those still trapped & Enslaved by it


____________________________________________________________
-inspiration of the day-
friend emailed me this


The Truth is, we are ...'God's instruments to do his work'... (1Peter 2:9 )
When do you know the True value of an instrument?
When it's in the hands of a Master!
So put your life into the Master's hands
and watch what He does with it
He 'saved us...not because of anything we did...
but because of God's Purpose...before time began
(2 Timothy 1:9 )
And He 'has given each of US a gift from his great variety
to Serve one another' (1Peter 4:10 );
gifts to equip God's people to do His work and build up the church' (Ephesians 4:11-12 )



____________________________________________________________

Suffering through pain and anguish
No matter what it is no matter what the reason
We all have felt this and have experienced it
Yet there is love to be found there connections waiting to be made
Through suffering we can identify with each other comfort one another
In a way that only love can bring together to heal one another
Love on someone today



____________________________________________________________

The power to Forgive is something truly divine
To grasp grace through the anger and pain
Knowing what it Feels like to be Forgiven
The Meaning comes alive in ones soul
Exercise the choice to Forgive
Acknowledge the Power in Forgiveness & Forgive


____________________________________________________________



Is God homeless in your life ?
He wants to make his home
Indwelling inside of You
Do not allow God to be homeless
Invite Him in let him take up residency



____________________________________________________________

When the connection is strong between you and God
Everything else is as it should be
When the connection is broken
Everything is not as it should be

____________________________________________________________

True Christians are Recognizable
So are Imposters
We know us



____________________________________________________________

While you are waiting on God to fix all your problems
God is waiting on you to Exercise your Faith
And Use the Power & Authority over your problems


____________________________________________________________

Living In Gods favor is far beyond
Your best life now
Living In Gods favor is Christ
Living IN You


____________________________________________________________

Keep God at the forefront of your path
and it shall remain Strait
Otherwise the path Will become Crooked


____________________________________________________________

Adjusting your life to the Greater Call
Of Gods plan for your life
Requires Sacrifice
No greater love than for you
to lay down your life for another
This Requires Adjustment This IS Sacrifice

____________________________________________________________

No accountability is danger to self

____________________________________________________________

Faith will produce Results
Actions Speak according to the proportion of your
Faith

____________________________________________________________

Although Christ himself was poor
& even stricken with Poverty
Yet he has Allowed us to be Rich
In Many ways
Not just Material but
Eternally rich

____________________________________________________________

Outside of Gods will
There is No safety
Being In the Will of God
Is Perfection


____________________________________________________________

Walk instep with Jesus
Not
Away from Jesus


____________________________________________________________

Your own will can only take you so far
Gods will
Will take you where your own will
Can Not
But the Reward Is Immeasurable


____________________________________________________________

Staying alone will lead you to places further & further
Away from God
Get out of self and run Towards Christ



____________________________________________________________

You are Not being Used
Because you
Refuse to do
THE WORK
Obedience to The Spirit
is the Only thing that matters
Be obedient
and everything else will fall into place


____________________________________________________________

Man's fallen condition
is in such a state
that you will never truly be happy
with sin in your life
and rightfully so
for what have a man
if not him seeking righteousness
but a life of hell on earth
Do THE WORK

____________________________________________________________

Concede & Repent
Come Wash Me Clean
Forgiven Yet Again
Allowed to Move Forward with Confidence
Turned from dark to Light
Spiritual Warfare fought and Waged War with self
Conceded & Repented
Set Free



____________________________________________________________

Valid after first denying or resisting it
totally liven in this
mind state of recklessness
In need of this Savior to break through the layers
Layers upon layers upon layers
I no that he is in there
In there somewhere keep digging & digging & searching
Bring forth fruit from within
Repentance from sin the key to the win
There's more than the struggle & pain
So I humble myself Again


____________________________________________________________

Through the struggle & the pain I can see through the Rain
Another day another day
The savior Pierced through the darkness forever into eternity
Satan must get up off of me Back up off me
The Sword The spoken word
Slays the hordes of legions facing me daily
Mentally prepared to do battle with principalities
Yet not seen with the naked eye
Presence surrounding me Your not taking me
I look to the Heavens Grace abounding
In me & through me
Sufficient

____________________________________________________________

God has given us a helper
So we do Not have to be ruled by our feelings & emotions
That helper is The Holy Spirit
Get out of the natural and allow The Spirit to Rule



____________________________________________________________
Sept 29th 2012

I give ALL Glory to My Savior Jesus Christ
who delivered me from alcohol on this day 11yrs ago
I was baptized still drunk from the night before ,
that day I came up out of the water I could feel Gods Divine mercy
his Love surrounded me in me & all around me
I felt God I felt his presence HE IS REAL
That day he took my addiction and dependance of alcohol from me
For if He had not I would be dead
I had been in the hospital 3 separate times with alcohol poisoning
yet still I could not stop
Sept 29th 2001 was the last day I had alcohol
so I would Love the opportunity to invite anyone
struggling with drugs or alcohol into a relationship
with The God of the Universe
HE is REAL He does Deliver
THANK YOU GOD THANK YOU CHRIST MY SAVIOR !!!




____________________________________________________________

This world always over promises
and not only severely under delivers
it Severely Disappoints
But God ALWAYS delivers & Always KEEPS his
Promises



____________________________________________________________

I do not feel adequate if I am not allowing God to use me
To build His Kingdom
For if I am not building His Kingdom
Than I must be building my own little one
There is nothing like bringing people to The King of Mercy & Grace



____________________________________________________________

Getting yourself in position for God to use you
is Crucial
Allowing God to use you
Life is Not about you & your little world
It is However about you being where He needs you to be
To meet others at their Crossroads in this Life
If you are not there they loose out & so do you
You are here to do His Work not your own
Not to mention it is Fulfilling
Unlike doing your own work which ALWAYS feels like chasing the devil



____________________________________________________________

It is an Impossibility to run in the opposite direction
of your Problems
And Expect them to eventually get solved
Run Toward your problem & Conquer it
Otherwise it will continue to Conquer YOU



____________________________________________________________

Although not perfect I strive for perfection
Outside looks great
Inside is filthy as rags
But the heart for Christ is True
I will follow Christ at all cost
But do not let the external facade fool you
I am a sinner Saved By Grace through Faith



____________________________________________________________

It is Obedience that brings forth Gods blessings
Disobedience brings forth chaos and mismanagement
Test this you will find that Obedience brings fruit in your life
Disobedience brings rot



____________________________________________________________

Mysteries of God are unlocked by Obedience
To Experience God in new ways
One Must Adjust ones life to Obedience
When your will Aligns and Adjust to The Fathers Will
Your Life will Dramatically change
Live IN The Spirit for there are No misdeeds done In The Spirit



____________________________________________________________
There is no question that my life is a Direct testament to Christ
And the Power & Authority given unto me by the Holy Spirit
Directly correlates with All that He has done for me
The more Obedient I am to The Spirit
The further God reveals to me about His nature and ways



____________________________________________________________

Make Christ a Priority & your life will Change Dramatically
Keep Him on the to do list & your life will Reflect this
For He is Truly Worthy of ALL our Praise
Give him your Best & he will overflow your life with Blessings



____________________________________________________________

We will never fully understand the Magnificence of God
When have you ever heard of a King leaving his Thrown
When have you ever heard of a King leaving his Glory
This is Unending Unfailing LOVE
This is Amazing Grace
Because he did it for You he did it for me



____________________________________________________________

The King left his Thrown of Majesty
The King left his thrown of Glory to Serve
He left his Thrown to die so we could Live
Now we have the Privilege to Serve
The bar has been set
Accept the Task given By The King of All authority



____________________________________________________________

Allow the Holy Spirit to Lead
And get out of the way
Because there is only room
For One to lead
Either you are following
The Spirit or your in the way



____________________________________________________________

Choose this day to Serve one another
As The Christ the Savior of the world chose to Serve
He Served unto death
All He ask is that we Serve one another
Be usable today



____________________________________________________________

You do not have the luxury of working on your life later
The work must begin now
because others will suffer
if you are not where you are supposed to be
When they need you to be there
Believe it or not it's not all about you



____________________________________________________________

Choose to do the will of Christ
It is going to cost you
Choosing not to do the will of Christ
will cost you far more


____________________________________________________________

Pray in The Spirit and Invite The Spirit into your day
The enemy does not want you to be in The Spirit
He wants you to be in self
Walk in the characteristics of Christ which is the fruit of the Spirit



____________________________________________________________

We are all born with
gifts ,talents,and abilities
The question is not do we have them
but are we allowing God to utilize them for which He Purpose ?



____________________________________________________________

When I use to get high it would ultimately make me low
With Christ I have joy unspeakable my only dependence is solely in Christ
The ultimate high



____________________________________________________________

Even though man does not always get it right
God through his infallible nature
can still find a way to show his glory
Through all of our fallible ways



____________________________________________________________

____________________________________________________________

Darkness cannot only be penetrated
But It can be Overcome by The Light
The Light Represents
Christ
Is there darkness in your life ?



____________________________________________________________

We are all set apart by God
We all have a light
We all have a purpose
Step out the dark
And into the light
For the purpose which God created you for



____________________________________________________________

Just because you portray strength
does not necessarily mean you are strong
And just because you have the appearance
of being weak
does not mean you do not have
abundant strength from within


____________________________________________________________

True competition will
force one another to push one another
to the Highest Potential
Not force one another down
Competition is Designed to bring out the Best
in people Not the worst


____________________________________________________________

Jesus thank you for your deliverance
thank you for bringing me out if the mire


____________________________________________________________

All good things are not Divine things
You had better know the difference
A good thing is not necessarily a God thing


____________________________________________________________

I am at the Speedway
watching the drunkards leave the concert
All I can say is I praise God
that I am not where I used to be
Not judging at all by any means
just thankful If not for Grace There go I


____________________________________________________________

If the gospel of Christ does not Empower
you in any way
than it is probably not the gospel
of Jesus Christ it is probably your own gospel


____________________________________________________________

Men's souls recognizes The Truth of God's existence
Men's heart recognizes the Truth in God's laws
Man's mind tries to dismiss them both


____________________________________________________________

Truth is a person
For Christ is
The Truth
Christ is the way
Christ is life


____________________________________________________________

Look no longer to your feelings
Do not be bound by your senses
But be fulfilled by the Limitlessness
of Faith in things yet not seen
For Blessed is he who believes and hath not seen

____________________________________________________________
Salvation is Of grace through faith
lest anyone be able to boast and take
credit for the salvation they have received
So freely provided by God's Master Plan
Boasting is equal to pride
and pride has no place
for it sets itself up above God


____________________________________________________________

There are many things that we will not know about God
just because we do not understand the fullness's
of his Majesty does not give us any right
by any means to think that we know more
than the creator of all things


____________________________________________________________

WORTHY IS THE PRECIOUS LAMB OF GOD
THERE IS NONE LIKE HIM NOR WILL THERE EVER BE
HE IS THE KING OF KINGS WHO LEFT HIS THROWN OF GLORY
TO DIE A PAINFUL DEATH FOR OUR SAKE
TO ASCEND TO THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER
SO YOU COULD BE FREE
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR ?


____________________________________________________________

Having material things is not the reason to be called blessed
For many are called to a life of discomfort while serving Christ
Having Christ indeed causes one to be blessed



____________________________________________________________
Before you ask God to rain down more blessings upon you
ask yourself have you taken care of the blessings
he's already placed within your hands?
Before you ask God to shower you with finances
ask yourself have you stewarded
the finances he's already given you?

____________________________________________________________

The inability of man to conquer his own sin is ONLY nullified by
THE CROSS
One can only be assured that they're wretchedness has been removed
By excepting God's Grace through Faith

____________________________________________________________

Lay down your pride
Become a living sacrifice
For he has saved you and redeemed you
and is worthy of all such praise

____________________________________________________________

Christ you found me broken and lost
Over the years you have put me back together piece by piece
You saved me I am forever yours

____________________________________________________________

It is okay to ask questions
that's not stupid at all
However it is
stupid
By your own choice
to stay stupid
by not asking the questions
to the answers you seek

____________________________________________________________

Do not take Flight when TRUTH is Presented
Instead Stand in the midst of TRUTH
And Allow it to Work in Your
Life

____________________________________________________________

IF your outward Reality does not match
Your INWARD REALITY
Than your Inward Reality needs to be cleared up
For the outside is Not the Reality that matters most
The Inside Must be cleaned up so Christ can dwell there


____________________________________________________________

How can the Greater things that God has Ordained
For my Life get accomplished
If I am so busy
Doing Meaningless things like running around building
My own little Kingdom
There is only room for ONE KINGDOM
and it Most Certainly is Not mine

____________________________________________________________

Although when we pray and believe that we will receive
remember God is in control and if we do not get what we ask for
we will get something far greater
GOD'S WILL
____________________________________________________________

God takes the fatherless and makes them Sons
God takes the orphan and turns them in to a Daughter
He takes the sinner and redeems Their Soul
Who else But the King of Kings
The Christ

____________________________________________________________

I've had a horrible terrible no good very bad day
But Jesus Still Reigns

____________________________________________________________

You shall be Lifted High
For you alone are Worthy
Remove all Self imposed glory from man
For truly ALL GLORY belongs to The ONE
who sits on HIGH
THE ALPHA
THE OMEGA beginning middle and THE END

____________________________________________________________

Being obedient to Holy Spirit can be very difficult because
The Holy Spirit will Lead your flesh to do things it Desperately wants to fight against
Perfect example
The Holy Spirit leading
Christ to the Cross

____________________________________________________________

When you receive The Gift
Of The Indwelling Holy Spirit
Your life should Radically & Dramatically begin to Transition
Into a Completely Different
Lifestyle
Resembling Less & Less
Of your Former way of living

____________________________________________________________
Are you aware that the Holy Spirit has emotions ?
For the word says do
Not Grieve the Holy Spirit of God
Therefore you can with your Decisions Cause
The Holy Spirit to Grieve
Be Mindful of this

____________________________________________________________

God is not going to come down from Heaven to direct your path for You
That is the job Of The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the one who will Lead and Guide you
All You have to do is Follow its Directions

____________________________________________________________

It is not you that draws people to God however
it is the Holy Spirit in you that draws people to God
so that no man shall boast of his own doing

____________________________________________________________

Much like a good Parent uses Discipline
for Disobedience
to bring us back in line with Obedience
so too does God

____________________________________________________________

If YOU are not WILLING to put in the WORK
Necessary to IMPROVE Your life
Than stop Complaining about it

____________________________________________________________

Christ through the Power of the Indwelling Holy Spirit
Has Given Us EVERYTHING we Need to Work out
Our own Salvation
If you are not Using the Direction & Wisdom the Spirit Gives
IT is not God's fault YOU are Not making Progress
It is Your OWN fault for not OBEYING the TRUTH
THE SPIRIT REVEALS

____________________________________________________________

I have realized I have Willingly Allowed Christ to be my Savior
Mainly saving me from self

And by doing so I have Reaped the Benefits of doing so
Such as DELIVERANCE from
Drugs & Alcohol ,Brokenness from Sexual Abuse , Addiction to Pornography,Suicidal
Tendencies and the death of Sin

But in Realizing this I Recognize
That He wants not only to be my
Savior but also Lord of my Life
When I have Allowed him to be
The Lord of my life
He has given me far Greater Insight to His Plan & Will for my life
It is Easier to discern direction
There is abundant Peace Inside of Gods Will
The Moment he is no longer allowed access to Lordship over my life
It is Absolutely Clear when I am only Allowing him Access to the role of Savior
