  1. I always find something wise to ponder over here. This post is exceptional. How much more important to work toward spiritual success than personal in-the-moment gratification!

  2. I have found success as a Christian, when enduring trouble I fill my thoughts and mind in positive word versicles. (I use many, not just a few) I repeat them to my self, so my soul feels the heal and I am strong again in the word of my Lord and saviour. It works wonderfully! Ready to face my troubles.
