Don't pray for God to take away your habit.
It is not for God to take away, but for you to give it up.


Don't pray for God to take ALL your pains away.
The spirit is whole, the body temporary.

Don't pray for God to grant you patience.
Patience is a by product of tribulation;
it isn't granted, it is learned.

Don't pray for God to give you happiness.
God gives you blessings;

Happiness is up to you.

Don't pray for God to spare you pain.
Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to God.

Don’t pray for God to make your spirit grow.
You must grow on your own!
but God will prune it to make you fruitful.

And lastly, drum roll……..

Don’t pray for all things that you might enjoy life.
God gives you life, so that you may enjoy all things!


DO pray for God to help you LOVE others, as much as God loves you!

THIS WEEK IS YOUR GIFT DON'T THROW IT AWAY


"To the world you might be one person, ….
but to one person you just might be the world"


HAVE A GREAT WEEK EVERYONE!!!!
