When you are in line with God’s Word in the area of faith, you will be able […]

  • March 29, 2017

Failure Factor 1 Patience – that’s what I really needed. I just wanted to get through the storm. It was so tempting to put on full power and blast through the mess, but that would just waste fuel and increase the stress on the plane. If I patiently kept doing the things that I knew I should do and if I followed the principles I had been taught, I knew our plane would come through this and there would be better weather ahead. (James 1:12) It seemed that patience was tied to controlling my thoughts. It’s when I thought about […]
