    @ Bre... I Thank the Almighty God and the Power of the Holy Spirit for given you His word as succor at the trying time. Let us all take vs 15 of this chapter "Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away". Obedience to this word is a strong weapon as strong as fasting and prayer.

    Everything we need to exist is written in the bible. Our trials and tribulations are not brand new, there are life instruction in the book. We need to read it and apply it daily.

    My father always told me that the difference of thinking and knowing the right thing to do was 18" long, from your brow down to your heart. Your heart is where the answers to all situations should come from. While your intelligence is birth through your brain, your true feelings and acting on the right thing to do comes from the heart. If you respond from your heart than most likely you will be able to act reasonably on any thoughts.
