Overcoming Addictions

I read about an herbal remedy that contains:
Agrimony, California poppy, morning glory, red poppy, self-heal, scullcap, walnut, and wild mountain iris flowers in 8% alcoholic solution.
This solution is supposed to cure any addiction problem we may have from shopping to drug abuse. It is quite the miracle eh? I guess my profession is useless. I guess we don't need to invest our lives into seeking Truth, investing our lives in our friends, or reaching out to those that just need. It is a crazy world that we live in where people pay 11.95 for their addiction elixir. It has been on the market since 1974==I don't think I will be able to resist buying it! Do you think I am addicted? Grace and Peace...

Blessed are they who have the gift of making friends, for it is one of God's greatest gifts.  It involves many things, but above all the power of going out of one's self and appreciating what is noble and loving in another.   Thomas Hughes

I am a person who is blessed to have friends and one that is smart enough to know that I could use some more.  Thanks to all of you have made my life so much of a better place!

Where did you go?

Now that it is Christmas break you hear from a lot of friends that are home from school. It is really an awesome feeling and really good times. Some of them have had great semesters and a lot have really messed up. It is important to me to encourage all of them that they are so young and nothing is impossible. Nothing has been done that can't be changed without effort. God says in James, "Draw close to me and I will draw close to you." So where did we go? Doesn't matter, just so long as we come back. Doesn't matter about yesterday as long as today we are getting closer. Grace and Peace my friend...

Trust issues

"(Jesus speaking)'Don't be troubled. You trust God, now trust in me.'"John 14:1 NLT

There is a lot to be said when Jesus says "chill out, I got this." This seems to be a way in which we all need to be there for our friends. Don't worry so much! You can trust me and from that trust you know I am here for you no matter what the situation. No matter what, no matter what! Those are the friends I need!

A church's apology for all of us?

We Were Wrong
"We followed trends when we should have followed Jesus. We told others how to live but did not listen ourselves. We live in the land of plenty, denying ourselves nothing, while ignoring our neighbors who actually have nothing. We sat on the sidelines doing nothing while AIDS ravaged Africa. We were wrong; we're sorry. Please forgive us."

A message from SpringCreek Church in Garland Texas. They actually took out an ad and gave a public apology! Pretty bold for a group of Christians to outwardly promote their hypocrisy, but wow, thank God for it.

"I must begin with some words of disclosure. I am a hypocrite. I can be arrogant and cynical. I am sometimes inconsiderate and insecure. My ego often rages out of control, and I battle foolish pride. I can be lazy and foolhardy with my time. I get angry, petty, and ill tempered. I am sarcastic and cynical.
I am a Christian."
An excerpt from the book When bad Christians are good People.

I am with Max Lucado--God accepts us as we are but he refuses to leave us that way-- Grace and Peace my friend.
