Continued from page 1
God takes it very personal how we treat His children.
Those who receive people in meekness have learned a very special lesson. In right place, at right time, under right circumstance - There is no sin we couldn't be tempted with. Only by grace of God that it isn't me.

Brother against brother is a testimony lost people notice.
Without unconditional acceptance, there is no unconditional love.
Only when we become one with God can we become one with each other; One in heart, soul, purpose, body, mind, and strength.
Some build for today. Others build for eternity.
Peace begins once we realize we're all in same boat And God gave us gifts to help each other find our way.
Plant God's Seed and He'll grow Crop.

Today's Difficulties are Tomorrow's Testimonies.
Your life will always be filled with challenges. It's best to admit this to yourself and decide to be happy anyway.
The sun is just beyond clouds.

Were we to ask God to open our eyes, to see ourselves as He sees us; To examine our heart, actions, attitudes, and motives... God would be faithful to show us how we are hurting His cause.
Once we’ve found our sin and corrected it, We can ask God to show us another and then another.
One step at a time, we’ll be weeding out flesh and Satan’s power over us While winning world to Christ.
We can make a difference once we decide to be difference, Then do it all for glory of God. It begins within "OUR" heart.
