Everything Begins With Our Thoughts And We Will Be Held Accountable For Them

Satan will tempt you with the lusts of the body to keep you from the work you were called to do, which is to testify of Jesus Christ and of God’s love for mankind. Whether those temptations are physically acted on or just allowed to set up housekeeping in the corridors of your mind, it is dangerous, wrong, a sin, and offensive to God. … Read More Everything Begins With Our Thoughts And We Will Be Held Accountable For Them

Freedom Means You Are Vulnerable/With Armor :)

Vulnerable/With Armor; this means that you know who you are and what your weaknesses are or at least that you honor as much as you do know. No one likes to admit that they are vulnerable, that they can be hurt in any way. It is a true component of freedom though. It requires observation, honesty, and a safety net. That is why the … Read More Freedom Means You Are Vulnerable/With Armor 🙂
