Life has really been bad lately and this morning things escalated with my son – his car broke down on the highway last night and he just told me about it this morning. We got into a bad argument. This is really sad since our relationship has been one of the bright spots in my life – until this morning we have been getting along great.
After a short time of thinking about how God has taught me so many domestic problems either occur or are augmented by our pride I turned to Him in prayer and it was amazing. Moments later things were better and both my son and I calmed down. I took him to his car and surprisingly it started. I followed him back to our home.

I think all of us tend for forget that by continuing to focus on what we are NOT willing to do does not help… We keep thinking… “I need to… ” or “I wish I would….” etc…
But if we are NOT doing it then we MUST NOT be WILLING to do it or else we would be doing it….
So we need to change our focus on WHAT WE ARE willing do do? and do that…. I am guilty of this too… I do it all the time…. I just think we can not ask ourselves enough that simple question, “What AM I willing to do?”Continue reading
To believe that YOU don't have enough faith is accusing HIM of not supplying enough grace... Do you really believe that Jesus promoted believing more in yourself? - in your faith? - in your ability to believe? ...Continue reading
Humility With Confidence Is A Devil Killer
The enemy is ether jumping up and down on top of us - pounding us into the ground too make us feel lower than dirt OR he is getting under us and pushing us upward - making us feel like we are God. What he, the enemy hates, is when we humbly understand we are sinners and yet place our confidence God. Humility with confidence is a devil killer.Continue reading
