You go in a filthy clunker, and you come out with your sins washed away--a cleansed clunker. But conversion is more than a removal of sin. It is a deposit of power! It is as if a brand-new Ferrari engine was mounted in your frame. God removed the old motor that was caked, cracked, and broken with rebellion and evil...

Marred by hurt and humiliation, we don’t see the situation clearly. We listen too much to the voices that got us into this mess. The abuser still abuses our self-esteem. Our judgments are limited. <BR> <BR> At these times who makes a better judge? You or Jesus? Jesus knows the situation inside and out. He sees from every perspective and feels all the pain. He knows when lines were crossed... Mon, 24 Apr 2017 09:37:37 EST Greetings in the Name of Jesus Hi, my name is Elaine and it is good to see a team that loves the Lord. Thanks for the warm welcome.

But during the first month of King Hezekiah's reign, he reopened the doors of the Lord's Temple and had them repaired.

I just turned 40 and would love to spend this first year in my 40's "cleaning house" of bad habits and replacing them with winning habits. I weigh 193, have pre-diabetes, take medication for blood pressure, and am a couch potato. I teach middle school so I need to be fit and energetic! I'm ready for change, ready to put things right. Look forward to getting to know you. Tue, 5 Apr 2011 11:15:19 EST new member Hi everyone! I just joined the team and am looking forward to meeting you all.

Sun, 26 Dec 2010 08:40:18 EST Surgery Tomorrow I will be having foot surgery at 1 ET. They want me at the hospital at 1130. I am nervous. THey prayed for me at church and annointed me. I know that God is with me. I keep telling myself that. It is the anticipation of how will I be after and how will I handle the anistesia (spelling is awful). Tue, 21 Dec 2010 22:13:05 EST excercise suggestions I would like some suggestions on excercise.

I am struggling with the last 10 pounds to loose or maintain where I am at. I am also struggling with getting back the relationship with Christ like I used to have. I know He has not gone anywhere, I want Him to be my best friend again. Sun, 19 Dec 2010 21:31:17 EST Please help I've been exercising and sticking to the program but after my first weight I only lost 0.8lb. You would think starting at 272.4lb dieting and exercising would make me lose more than that. Now I'm at my parents house and I've been doing so good that I weighed myself on the scale and now it says 280! What's going on with my body. I'm really giving 110% here! Sat, 11 Dec 2010 10:32:45 EST Holy Spirit rules! Hi I'm Candice. I'm 32 yrs old and 271.6 lb. I was praying for God to help me loose weight and he lead me to this website so I could meet other spirit filled believers going through the same thorn in the flesh. I'm trusting God to heal me of this with a powerful testimony waiting for me on the other side. Please write back because I would love to meet other brothers and sisters in Christ.
