“If you start thinking to yourselves, “I did all this. And all by myself. I’m rich. It’s all mine!”—well, think again.

“On your feet now—applaud GOD! Bring a gift of laughter, sing yourselves into his presence. Know this: GOD is God, and God, GOD. He made us; we didn’t make him.

What a relationship! A deep, abiding relationship! Every time this person crossed the Apostle Paul’s mind, he couldn’t help but thank God for him.

Yesterday my mom fell again walking outdoors at her apartment…She is okay & was released from hospital after a few hours. On the drive to West Bend after we got the call…I found complete peace just loving my God & knowing He was in control of the situation no matter what it was.
