    first try to accept we are human and not perfect. So when fears creep in call on God. Be as patient as you can and let God handle the situation in his time and not yours.

    I was led here because of the sin of gluttony or overeating. It's a sin that I've been plagued with since childhood. It's a sin many Christians endure, yet many preachers aren't talking about this severe sin at their pulpits. I can attest that gluttony brings poverty. The spirit of poverty is upon my family, I'm constantly tired, and I dress in same clothes daily. Please pray for me,

The world says 15 years for two burgarly charges , but yet has no evdience at the scene of the crime or no evdience no one placing him at the crime. The lord lead me to this scritpure God has let me known the scarfice I have made ,will be blessed.

    Buy the truth, and sell it not; be willing to part with any thing for it. Do not part with it for pleasures, honours, riches, or any thing in this world. The heart is what the great God requires. We must not think to divide the heart between God and the world; he will have all or none. Look to the rule of God's word, the conduct of his providence, and the good examples of his people.
