No, Not One…

No, Not One… When addiction (sin) runs your life you see others as living life with the same addiction (sin). If one is drinking all the time and the goal is to kill the pain, when others are drinking that is the how their drinking is seen. They must be drinking to kill the pain as well.

The times we don’t want to do something, usually just about anything, is the exact time we should do it. Of course, if there is a sense of danger and the Holy Spirit is saying “run”…

Standing, Sitting and Kneeling…

Standing, Sitting and Kneeling… When are we suppose to stop standing up for what is right? When do we stop doing the right thing and turn it all over to God? Who are God’s Ambassadors here on Earth? If we stand down and simply state something like “It’s all in God’s hands?” what role do we play? Why would God make us in His image, then send His only begotten Son to teach us about healing, how to heal and why? Would the alcoholic get saved if there weren’t another…

‘What Are You Making’… “Woe to him who strives with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth!

F.E.A.R.

F.E.A.R. False Evidence Appearing Real – Fear What does wisdom do for us? Where does our desire to learn originate? What should we do with a vast amount of knowledge? What is worthy of knowing and worthy of ignoring? For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”~I Corinthians 1:18-19 NKJB Throughout…

“A Good Product”…

“A Good Product”… How many leeper’s have you met this week? Did you sit down with any? What about making an attempt to know them as a person or understand how they became so “unclean”?

We have to know we are completely powerless over our lives and our lives are 100% unmanageable without forgiveness through grace and have the humility…
