When my family struggled financially, I noticed something seeping up from my heart: a sickening, dog-eat-dog kind of mentality that secretly resented others I knew who were doing better and sought to compete for little scraps of material provision. I thought I was above these kinds of attitudes—I really did.
Do not judge people. You are not perfect yourself. If you need to ask God to lead you to another church, if you feel that your pastor has failed you then ask for a meeting. Discuss the matter with your pastor and make sure you are at peace.
Gracious God, I acknowledge that You are worthy of all honor, glory and praise. I am thankful for the victorious work of Your Son, Jesus Christ at Calvary for me. I appropriate His victory for myself now as I willingly surrender every area of my life to Your will.
When a mother has this protective love for her son she becomes fiercely protective of his life, crippling his emotional growth and tying him to her apron strings as 'Momma's Boy.' This tendency has been documented even from Biblical times in the story of Rebekah, who encouraged her favorite son Jacob to steal his brother's blessing through impersonation.
“What, capital murder? Me? I have never harmed anyone. Me? Are you sure?” Graves’ pleas fell on deaf ears, despite the lack of any physical evidence linking him to the crime. Thus, he was accused of killing a family he had never even met.
When facing a difficult life transition, our emotions can take over and make us do or say things we may regret later. This is common reaction among people going through a divorce. However, it doesn't need to be that way, especially if we have children.

These attacks following closely on the heels of the attacks in Paris and the destruction of the Russian airline symbolize the obsession with violence and destruction that seems to have taken hold of many. While the number of official "wars" have lessened over the past few years the intensity and brutality of the fighting has dramatically increased.
Today there is no stigma attached to divorce. However, most women feel devastated, confused and betrayed. Some sink into depression and in extreme cases, may even show suicidal tendencies.

Prayer is a must if you are to live a victorious life. God is calling people to build prayer altars in their lives. God is looking for a man who will stand in the gap that evil will not befall men. An understanding of what to expect when you rightly build a prayer altar will energize you to do so.
You would expect the daughter of H.L. Hunt, the late oil tycoon and one of the wealthiest people in the world at the time of his death in 1974, to act a certain way, to move in expected circles, and to maintain an intimidating aura that can shake even the bravest of hearts. This is not the case with June Hunt, the 12th of 14 Hunt children. Witty, charming, kindhearted, and extremely down to earth, her presence exudes peace--not the kind that comes from the world, but the one from the Word of God that surpasses all understanding
In my experience, I have found ego to be nothing more than pride in its bloated state. For example, a cavalier man (no pun-intended to my Cleveland Cavs Fans) is extremely pompous when it comes to his money, position, education and etc.

God speaks to our spirits, deep within us, but when the enemy speaks we can hear that voice in our minds or our souls. Have you ever had an intrusive thought just pop up in your mind? Next thing you know you are obsessing over that thought.
How do you submit yourself sexually and basically give him what he wants when he's constantly betraying you? If he says I don't want to use protection and you refuse to give him what he wants because of the constant disappointments, is that your fault?
Trump's pledge to "make America great again" represents an inspiring brand promise to this conservative segment of the voting population, and importantly hits a very strong emotional nerve with them.
