What a beautiful and thoughtful post. Before the renewal of my relationship with Christ I looked past people that were struggling. I had no idea how self-centered I had become. What a difference God makes. I'm now a giving and encourgaing person and I like me better. I know Jesus likes the change in me that He developed. God is so ggod. :)

If the KJ version was all that was available I would not read my Bible the way I do now. I have been reading the Living Bible since it was given to me at a Teen Challenge Retreat in 1973. I neglected it for decades but since I dusted it off in 2002 I try to read it every day. We need to choose a version that works for us and let the Holy Spirit speak to us through it. If you read your bible prayerfully it doesn't matter what version you choose. :)

Wonderful advice. When we pray without ceasing like Paul instructs us in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 we are chatting with God throughout our day. Some people get so wrapped up in where and how they pray that they rob themselves of a real intimate relationship with Christ. It's a shame becasue He wants everyone to know Him personally. Thank you for another inspiring read. :)

I published my memoir knowing that I could experience some blow-back from those that knew me. As a Christian woman that owned a world famous biker bar and was married to an alcoholic, there was plenty of room for criticism. What I got was rave reveiws and folks telling me how much my book helped them. One of the ladies at my church gave me a bad reveiw becasue she said my book shared TMI, too much information. I felt like I had to share our entire story, the good, the bad, and the ugly, so people would appreciate how far we'd come. I still think it was the right thing to do. I'm proud of my book. Thanks for inspiring writers to go for it. God bless, Cat
