Truth, Conflict and How To’s Crumbs


“Between falsehood and useless truth there is little difference. As gold which he cannot spend will make no man rich, so knowledge which cannot apply will make no man wise.” Samuel Johnson

                                combat      “Conflict is inevitable, but combat is optional.” Max Lucado


“The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past . . . we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you . . . we are in charge of our attitudes.” Charles R. Swindoll


“Usually we don’t think about our physical breathing. But spiritual breathing is something that requires conscious action – a readiness to “exhale” or confess our sin and to “inhale” or trust God to fill us with His Holy Spirit.   Stacy Wiebe


“He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.” ( Prov. 28:13)

    Thanks Liz Really find your Devos encouraging & thot provoking !! Sometimes experience conflicts more than I like! Reading thru the Bible(slowly) with Max Lucado Study Bible. Challenge from our Pastor to the entire congregation we have our own choice of study methods – just don’t give up! We love Charlie Boyd!! Warm greetings to Jay& Millie. How is your health issues? Pat R.

    • Hello my friend. Thanks for your encouraging comment. Sounds like a good plan to read the Bible. I’m having surgery next week on my knee, torn meniscus. It’s outpatient so shouldn’t be too bad. I guess I’ll be back on the treadmill in due time. Ugh!
