Dirty Feet

Has anyone ever said to you “what were you thinking?” Or you might have said it to someone yourself. The problem is we have no earthly idea what someone else is thinking, we have no way of reading minds. What if we could know what someone else was thinking, wonder how we would react if we knew they were thinking wrong thoughts about you. What if we knew what someone else was about to do and that something included a wrong action toward you? How would the look on your face be? As you looked them in their eye would you have a different look on your face? In John chapter 13 we see Jesus knowing and forgiving. There is no way that you and I can know what others are thinking let alone know what someone is about to do. Jesus knew His disciples thoughts and what the future held and knowing that He did something we need to learn to do.
John 13:12So after he had washed their feet, Now that’s interesting! The first set of feet Jesus came to was Peter’s the man that in just a few hours would curse Jesus.
John 13:5After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.
John 13:6Then cometh he to Simon Peter: He also washed Thomas‘s feet knowing that this man would question the resurrection? He bows before Judas Iscariot and picks up his feet and washes them, no different than any of the other disciples.  Even knowing that in just a few hours he himself would bring a group to the garden and they would arrest Jesus. Jesus knew that this man Judas would betray Him with a kiss.
Luke 22:48But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?
Jesus knowing what would take place forgave their sin before they even committed it. He offered mercy before they even sought it. You know what? He’s done the same for you and me. He not only loves us He likes us and He forgives us. There is only one sad thing to this event and that was Judas, he left the room.
John 13:30He then having received the sop went immediately out: and it was night.
Judas went out and the Bible tells us that it was night. This was the darkest night of Judas’s life, it was a night where he could have been forgiven and he left. Peter was forgiven, Thomas was forgiven and I believe Judas could have also been forgiven but he refused and ran away from the one who was more than willing to forgive him. We should all learn to have a forgiving heart. I wonder if it was hard to forgive the ones you poured your life into. I guess it would have been but remember Jesus knew what would happen in days to come. He was able to see past that night of betrayal and saw a Peter that would stand strong and lead men to the saving knowledge of a great savior.  I’m afraid we stop way too short for we only see the wrong done to us not what the power of forgiveness will do in the future. We rob ourselves by holding on to a hurt feeling, the idea that I have been treated wrongly. Sure we all can say we’ve been done wrong but have we not treated Jesus wrongly also and He forgave. Now you and I need to mirror the same in our lives.  

Follow the Leader

by waynesosebee on August 14, 2012 · 0 comments

Did you ever play the game “Follow the Leader” when you were a child?  The rules are easy.  One person is the leader and the rest follow, doing the same things the leader does.  Most of the time, the leader takes the group running, skipping, jumping over obstacles, spinning, rolling down the hill, and, most of the time, they end up in some type of laughing mess.  Grins on their faces reveal the sheer joy of the game. Jesus invites us.  “Come, follow me,” He says.  Unfortunately, most adults have lost the love of following the leader.  Instead we require information like, Where are we going? How long will it take to get there?  What do I need to bring?  How long will we be gone?  And, without affirmation of the answer, we refuse to budge. In turn, we miss the adventure altogether. The invitation to follow Jesus is open-ended.  Anyone can come. Anyone can participate, but only if they follow His lead.  Answers aren’t guaranteed, the path is often hidden, but if we want to enjoy the game, we must follow the Leader. 
Jesus picked twelve men as His inner circle they missed a lot that Jesus was trying to teach them, but they didn’t miss the central issue. That’s obvious in
John 6:66  From that timemany of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Vast multitudes are following Him, no matter where He goes. Then He confronts them with the fact that this is going to be about more than miracles and meetings; it’s going to involve the shedding of blood, the laying down of His life, and a price tag for those who follow Him. ‘You do not want to leave, too, do you?’ Jesus asked the twelve.
John 6:67  Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? Simon Peter answered Him,
John 6:68  Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.
John 6:69  And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God. See, they knew that it was all about Jesus and that He was the only One with anything that would last, that was worth living and dying for. That’s what Jesus was saying when He repeatedly said to people, “Follow Me.” He didn’t say “Follow My religion” or “Follow My followers” or “Follow My rules.” He said, “Follow Me.” It’s all about Jesus. And if you know someone who’s away from Him right now, here’s how to pray for them, “Lord Jesus, help them realize how much they miss You.” Satan would love to keep your focus on the Christians who hurt you, or the hypocrites who turned you off, or the sin that’s taken you away. But it’s not Christians you’ve left or church or some religious rules, it’s Jesus you’ve left! Remember how it felt when you were close to Him? Don’t you miss Him? Why not be Like the Prodigal Son, His father was waiting for him to come home. There’s nothing you’ve done that He didn’t take care of on the cross. And His love is unconditional. And maybe you have missed, up until this point, even having one day with Christ in your life. Oh, if you only knew the difference He could make, you’d run to Him.

Finishing Strong

by waynesosebee on August 10, 2012 · 0 comments

Have you ever give serious thought about giving up? Quitting? There are many on the side of the trail. They used to run. There was a time when they kept pace. But then weariness set in. They didn’t think the run would be this tough. They got discouraged by a fellow runner. Whatever the reason, they don’t run anymore. They still come to church. They still put a buck in the plate and they still sit in their place, but their heart isn’t in the race. They have retired before their time. This Christian race is no jog, the word race used in Hebrews 12:1 in the Greek is agon from which we get the word agony. The Christian race is not a jog; oh no, it’s a demanding and grueling and sometimes agonizing race. It takes a massive effort to finish strong.
 Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the racethat is set before us,
It’s the next two verses I want you to see for they show us how to stay in the race.
Hebrews 12:2Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of ourfaith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Hebrews 12:3For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.
You see temptations didn’t deter Jesus. Accusations didn’t defeat Jesus and Shame didn’t dishearten Jesus. Ever wonder why? Jesus is the only person to live on earth after He had lived in heaven. You and I will live in heaven after our time on earth. The first thing we learn to do is lay aside every weight and sin that is slowing us down. We then get our eyes focused on Jesus for He knows about temptation. Forty days He was tempted by the devil, did you get it FORTY days?  Why don’t you just quit Jesus, you’re wasting your time, no one really cares. Aren’t you glad Jesus didn’t quit instead He finished strong. I don’t know if you noticed it or not but in those three verses we just read nothing is said about streets of gold or angels. There is no music or feast; why the word heaven is missing, but the power is not. LOOKING UNTO JESUS the AUTHOR and FINISHER of OUR FAITH.  If you and I are going to finish strong it’s a must to keep our focus on Jesus. Is that not what the Apostle Paul said?
Philippians 3:14I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Didn’t Paul finish strong? Quitting is easy anyone can quit it takes little effort to quit. You can talk about the past and of how you used to run and even tell of some of the trophies, but you retired early, your feelings got hurt. Someone complained or whatever, you quit now instead of running you are sitting with only memories of days gone by. Really!! Get real Jesus heard words of accusation from strangers, from His neighbors and yes from His own family but He didn’t quit. I asked the Lord to come into my heart in 1973 I knew nothing about the Bible. My Pastor encouraged me to go to College. I went, three nights a week I went to classes, the College was only about 8 miles from the house. Then we moved now we were 45-50 miles away. I would work all day go by our Church clean up a bit sit down and eat a bag dinner that my wife had made for me while I studied. Then off to school I would go three classes a chapel and then the drive home almost midnight when I arrived. The next day the same; many said quit you’re killing yourself it’s not worth it, really, what’s the price for knowing more about Jesus? It’s Priceless and I’m glad for the opportunity I had. There is so much to get done and I haven’t the time to spend with those that say it can’t be done. How about you? I am excited about tonight when I’ll meet with the RU students then into the third talk the subject “I’m a Person of Action.” A person who moves neither left nor right is destined for mediocrity. When faced with a decision, many people say they are waiting for God.  I understand in most cases, God is waiting for me! See you tonight!!!!!

Stooper

by waynesosebee on August 9, 2012 · 0 comments

Jesus Leonardo has spent the last ten years hanging around off-track betting parlors, and looking for winning slips accidentally thrown out. He’s made $45,000 a year. Do you make $45,000 a year?  I sure don’t. Leonardo use to place his own bets. In 1999, he thought he had a loser, so he tossed the slip. After an inquiry of the race, the results changed and he realized he had given up a $900 winner. Searching the trash, he never found his ticket. He did find two others worth $2000. Ever since then he’s been a “stooper” (a person at a racetrack who searches for winning tickets that have been carelessly discarded by others.) I guess you could say Jesus Leonardo saw what others didn’t, and found what others missed. Ok, I’m not trying to get you to dig through the trash. Wait a minute; that is exactly what I want you to do. Let me explain; I’m afraid we give up to quickly on people. Others have thrown them aside saying they will never amount to anything, you’re wasting your time. What if Jesus Christ; (wanted you to know which Jesus I was referring to) thought like that? I’ll give you one example;
Mark 5:1 And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.
Mark 5:2 And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,
Mark 5:3 Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:
Mark 5:4 Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.
Mark 5:5 And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.
No one had time for this man, he was useless. Why he didn’t care about his family or friends! They made rules for him to keep and he never would keep them. He lived with the wrong kind of people and he did wild and crazy things to his body. The last time anyone heard anything about him he was living in a grave yard somewhere; he’s useless he’ll never change. I met a man one night and I thought the same thing, he’ll never change. I can see why his wife left him, his life is ruined, he’s hopeless. Years later, I saw how wrong I was, we are good friends and his family is put back together.  This man loves the Lord and is serving him today faithfully. Did someone think and feel that way about you?  Get out and don’t ever come back. We’re done, you’ll never change. I sure am glad Jesus Christ doesn’t see us that way. He sees what others don’t and goes after what others missed. There was a lady that came to our program. She told me up front that she didn’t want to be there she was made to come and that’s the only reason she was there. I smiled and I talked to her and every Friday night the other leaders did the same. We always made a point to say something nice to her with words of encouragement. It wasn’t long before she started staying after the meeting and eating with us, a smile came on her face and when she did leave, months later she was a different woman and stays in contact to this day. Jesus Christ can change that hard heart. So today who will the Lord send your way that may need a kind word, a pat on the back, a word of encouragement, don’t miss the opportunity.

Galatians 6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men,especially unto them who are of the household of faith. 

Appointment

by waynesosebee on August 8, 2012 · 0 comments

Two major events are going on at the present time, the Olympics in London and the space craft on Mars. We want the gold and we want to know what’s going on 352 million miles away. It’s all exciting to say the least but what if we had another opportunity? The opportunity to let Christ live our lives for a 24 hour period; not our priorities but His, not our passions but His and not what we love but what He loves. Would anybody see a change in our actions? How about our family, our coworkers, our friends, would we have those mood swings, temper problems, lust problems? Wait a minute aren’t we suppose to have the mind of Christ already?
Philippians 2:5Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Yes we are but too many times I think I allow my mind to make wrong decisions, I allow my mood to be the wrong one. My passions seem more important than His passions. Am I guilty of planning for the future and not thinking how the Lord wants my future to turn out; I do that by not praying and seeking His will for my future. Do I think I can plan my future better than the Lord? What silly thinking, I may want to have more but the Lord may want me to have less or it could be I’m thinking less and the Lord wants to give me more. Ok, how can one have the mind of Christ? I believe here’s the answer;
Psalms 119:11Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
 The more of God’s word we have in our heart the more of the mind of Christ we’ll have. So when we go through the day and we don’t allow God’s Word to have rule in our life then we are doing the planning and maybe that’s why we have so many failures. If we don’t take the time to read our Bibles, and we don’t take the time to hide God’s Word in our hearts then we’re doing the planning. I have learned that if I am going to spend time with the Lord and in His Word then I am going to have to put Him into my daily planning and make an appointed time to spend with Him. It’s not when I have time, but I have time because I set it aside for that purpose. If you had a doctor’s appointment at 10:00 a.m. would it be alright for you to arrive there when it worked out for you? I think you know the answer to that. So why shouldn’t we set the time aside for the Lord and allow Him to teach us things that no one else can. It will take time to hide His word in our hearts but the results will be priceless. 

Endure

by waynesosebee on August 7, 2012 · 0 comments

I want to look at the word endure for who knows what you and I will be called on to endure this week. Webster says the word endure means Endure- To last; to continue in the same state without perishing; to remain; to abide. Five times in Psalms 118 between the shortage Psalms 117 and the longest Psalm 119 we read these words “his mercy endureth for ever” Verse 1 and verse 29 both read almost the same all except for one word. 
Psa 118:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever.
Psa 118:29O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
God’s mercy will endure; our God is longsuffering which means that he endures a temperament that expresses itself in patience with the shortcomings of others. God doesn’t respond with a short fuse to us, neither does He want us to respond in such a way to others. He has what it takes to endure. Do you and I have what it takes to endure and if we don’t do we want what it takes to endure? We can have an attitude of “well they are getting what they deserve.” What if God had the same attitude toward us? Where would we be today? What if we got what we really deserved what do you think you would get? Our attitude is everything. When we read in our Bibles about Jesus’ actions and attitudes what do we read? Jesus was always looking for those who had problems. Some didn’t realize there was anything that could be done about their problem. A man born blind just thought this is the way life is and I must make the best of it. Then one day here comes Jesus passing by and saw him and the next thing we read is
John 9:11  He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight. What looked impossible was made possible by Jesus Christ. What’s your story? Every child of God has a story to tell! How he or she was blind, lame or deaf and here comes Jesus and ask you the same question as he asked the man at the pool of Bethesda where a man had been laying for 38 years hoping to be healed.  We really don’t know what was wrong the Bible says
John 5:3  In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water. I believe he was lame according to verse 8 but he may not have been. But we know that he was impotent laying there with all the other impotent folks. We may not have been at a pool waiting, but we were with other impotent folks; blind from seeing God’s love for us, lame from walking in God’s will or following after Him at all;   Withering away day by day as we journey in life. But one day this impotent man was asked a somewhat silly question by Jesus.
John 5:6  When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?   The man says
John 5:7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
 I don’t have anybody to help me; Jesus said I am here to help you and then Jesus tells him to do something he can’t
John 5:8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. Look what happened next John 5:9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the Sabbath. No moving of the water, no one helping him down into the water but immediately the impotent man was made whole. That’s the way it happens Jesus doesn’t need help He is longsuffering not willing that any should perish. His mercy endureth forever so therefore we should thank Him, praise Him and glorify Him daily.

Being Watched

by waynesosebee on August 6, 2012 · 0 comments

There were two men who were told if they would go to the sun they would both be paid a million dollars each. As they began to talk about it one was all for the idea but his friend told him that there was no way they could do that for if they tried they would be burned up. His friend then told him “no we want we will go at night.” I’m afraid many are like the second man, some think that if they do their evil deeds in the night that no one will ever see them and therefore never know. Maybe if we were behind closed doors then no one could see so therefore no one will ever know? It doesn’t matter if it is night or day behind closed doors or not, alone or with someone else there is always one who sees but not only does He see He also knows why.
Proverbs 5:21   For the ways of man [are] before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.
For both good and bad ways are before the Lord’s eyes; all the impure thoughts, and desires of man’s mind. He not only sees them, but takes notice of them, and observes them and ponders them in His mind. (Ponders) To weigh in the mind; to consider and compare the circumstances or consequences of an event, or the importance of the reasons for or against a decision.
The Lord knows why we did what we did. We will not be able to make up a tale for our actions for the Lord knows the real reason behind our actions; lust, selfishness, pleasure, laziness, hurtfulness, greed, hatred, anger, getting even there will be no fooling the Lord for the real reason behind our actions.
Psalms 1:6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
Romans 14:12So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
It doesn’t matter what time or what date it’s all being recorded and we will each have to give an account to God. I guess one could say they are always being watched.

Chicken, Eagle?

by waynesosebee on August 3, 2012 · 0 comments

I will seek Wisdom! That is a very interesting statement to say the least. Is it possible to seek wisdom? And if so how does one go about seeking for wisdom? In the book of Proverbs we read:
Proverbs 2:4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as forhid treasures;
Webster tell us this about the word “if” (Regularly, if should be followed, as it was formerly, by the substitute or pronoun that, referring to the succeeding sentence or proposition.) In verse 5 we read this;
Proverbs 2:5Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.
If we will seek after wisdom as silver and as hidden treasures then we will understand the fear of the Lord and find the Knowledge of God. So in order to find wisdom we must seek after it. One must choose their friends with care; show me your friends and I will show you who you are. You will speak their language, wear their clothes, and share their opinions and their habits. If you associate with chickens, you will learn to scratch at the ground and squabble over crumbs. If you associate with eagles, you will learn to soar to great heights. If you are to soar with the eagles you can’t spend all your time with the chickens. If you are going to become wise you must spend time with wise people. The word “Wisdom” is found in 222 versus in our Bible. What is interesting about that is that the word “Wisdom” is found 53 times in the book of Proverbs. Now think about that for a moment; the book of Proverbs; Solomon is the principal author. What is so important about that? Solomon after he was King of Israel asked the Lord this;
1Kings 3:7And now, O LORD my God, thou hast made thy servant king instead of David my father: and I am but a little child: I know not howto go out or come in.
Solomon was honest and came before the Lord with a humble spirit and asked;
1Kings 3:9Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people? What Solomon asked for pleased the Lord;
1Kings 3:10And the speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing.
Solomon, because you were not selfish this is what I will do;
1Kings 3:11  And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment;
1Kings 3:12  Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.
We are told about “Wisdom” in the book of Proverbs by the wisest man that ever lived; don’t you think that if you and I spend time in the book of Proverbs we stand a better chance of knowing how to make wise choices and decisions?
At what age are we no longer affected by those around us; 18, 21. 30? The answer is we are always and forever influenced by those with whom we associate. If a man keeps company with those who curse and complain they will mirror the same.  If a man spends his days with the lazy; those seeking handouts, they too will soon find themselves mirroring the same. Many of our sorrows can be traced to relationships with the wrong people. Spending time with Chickens or Eagles? You can have as much as you want or as little as you are satisfied with!

Some One Sent?

by waynesosebee on August 2, 2012 · 0 comments

Let me show you something ; I am interested in this verse  
John 11:3  Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.Did you see it? Probably not for we read so fast we miss things. Here in chapter eleven in the book of John we read about two sisters and their brother Lazarus. Lazarus is sick even at the point of death and in verse three Martha and Mary send for Jesus to come to their home.  I have some questions about what is said. Name is not important, looks immaterial, gender is of no concern, and title is irrelevant. So why is this person so important? They are important not because of who they are, but because of what they did. They went to Jesus on behalf of a friend. Their friend was sick and Jesus could help, and someone needed to go and someone went. They went because they were asked to go. We need someone to go, will you go? What they needed was someone who wasn’t too busy.   Someone who knew how to find Jesus; someone who wouldn’t quit mid-stream; and someone who would make sure the message was delivered.  Someone carried the request; someone walked the trail; and someone went to Jesus on the behalf of another. Because that someone went, Jesus responded. How important was that someone? Notice what this someone said to Jesus “whom thou lovest is sick“He didn’t say “The one who loves you is sick.” Prayer is not based on the one who makes the prayer, but on the one who hears the prayer. So when we pray it should be “Lord the one you love is tired, sad, hungry, lonely, fearful, or depressed. After someone made the request the next words we read are 
John 11:4 When Jesus heard that,Excuse me I am about to have a running fit! Heard what? “Is sick“so when Jesus heard the request He stopped and gave that someone attention. That someone could have been you; that someone could have been me. How important is it that we pray one for another? James 5:16 Confess yourfaults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
That’s what you and I are to do Pray one for another; what a privilege. Had that someone not been willing to go we may have never read of the joy that followed in the hearts of Martha and Mary. And who was that someone? We will not know until we get to heaven and meet them but it really will not matter then because there will be so many other someone’s there. I wonder if we will be any of those someone’s. 
Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness;(not yours) and all these things shall be added unto you.  The Lord just taught me how to pray for others
 LORD “whom thou lovest is.

We are where we are because of our thinking. Our thinking dictates our decisions. Decisions are choices. The words “It’s not my fault!” should never come from our mouth. The words “it’s not my fault” have been written symbolically on the gravestones of unsuccessful people ever since Eve took her first bite of the forbidden fruit. Until a person takes responsibility for where he or she is there is no basis for moving on. The bad news is that the past was in our hands, but the good news is that the future is also in our hands. Wonder who taught Adam and Eve to say “it’s not my fault?” Maybe the same one that taught each one of us!
The Adversity:Gen 3:1Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
The Answer: Gen 3:2And the woman said unto the serpent, we may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
Gen 3:3But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
The Allurement: Gen 3:4And the serpent said unto the woman, ye shall not surely die:
Gen 3:5  For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
The Act: Gen 3:6  And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
The Action: Gen 3:7And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
Was Eve Forced into her Action? No! It was her choice, she was the one who made the decision; and the cost was great.  We all have made our Choices, no one forced us, we made the wrong choices too, and we must not blame others.
The Accusing:  Gen 3:11And he said, who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
Gen 3:12And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
Gen 3:13And the LORD God said unto the woman, What isthis that thou hast done? And the woman said, the serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
Accept with understanding that we are responsible for our own problem; don’t blame your parents, spouse, boss, or anyone else for your present situation. It is not your education or lack of education, your color, your circumstance or how much or how less you have in the bank. These are all negative outlets for your decisions. Don’t allow your history to control your future. The attitude should be   I ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR MY PAST; I AM ALSO REPONSIBLE FOR MY FUTURE!  I am where I am today mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and financially because of decisions I have made. My decisions have always been governed by my thinking. Therefore I am where I am today because of how I think. Change the way you think and change where you’re at.  Understand that God didn’t put in us the ability to always make the right decisions. He did put in us the ability to make a decision and then make it right.
