I like how "gerlene" put it a couple of comments back, essentially "one day at a time." (Mt. 6:34). Society really attempts to push us to the brink of worry, distress, etc. But with the knowledge of God's Word, & His promises, we have nothing to fear, Amen? Then how "Zscripture" ties into it with these wonderful words of wisdom, from our Father of course. It took me many years of headaches to figure out that all of live's answers, instructions & promises were right in the Holy Scriptures. I appriciate your input as well, "Everglaze." My entire walk with recovery, as well as with the Lord, has been one obsticle at a time. Some of my friends have been delivered with one swoop, but God has a different plan for me. After all, He knows what's best for each of us, Amen? Let me encourage anyone who is struggling with any type of bondage, to STUDY the book of James, especially Chapter 5. And do not be discouraged if you are not immediately delivered, trust in God.
