Lord, let us not be tossed and turned by teachings that tickle our ears and make us feel good about ourselves. Help us understand how depraved and wretched we are apart from you and how much we desperately need you hour by hour, minute by minute. Your word is a lamp unto our feet.....all our good works are filthy rags, we are undone, men and women of unclean lips... give us a brokenness, and desire for more of you and less of us! In Jesus name, Amen.
"The children of God all have a cross to bear. A suffering Savior generally has suffering disciples.' ~ J.C. Ryle
