I believe that the God in us will lead us and guide us, he clear the pathway, He gave us a map call the Bible, when He speaks to our Spirit, He confirms it with His Word. Because greater is He that is us, that he that is in the world.So we need to rely on the God in us to lead the body which way to go.

Hi creativeone59, I recieved your email and I had to get up from the computer for a moment, when I returned, I don't know whether I hit the wrong button or not but I couldn't find you. But I knew where you were. Amen! We that are in Christ are never lost, there is a way to get where we need to be. Remember Jesus is the way, the light, and He directs our path.

Love Ya.

I like slow, it's a lesson here,"James 1:19, Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath. For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God".The Bible tells us to think before we speak, to me that gives us that split second to hear God, and when we open our mouths, he said he would speak through us. Keep up the good work.

Slow is a good thing - especially the older you get - and it sure beats the alternative!

It,s getting easier to slow down as the years pass, but i know what u mean, sometime i rush ahead and do or think something too fast, if we could just wait on the lord, i have a prayer request, it,s my son Jackie, he has had two back surgeries and he is having a lot of pain in his back now plus his foot is numb, he is a diabetic so i,m really worried about him, they,re waiting on the ins. to ok an MRI.

Thank you so much Benny Faye
