A friend of mine was telling me, the other day, that it had been 44 days since she’d had a Diet Coke. Yup. Counting. I’ll bet you can guess why. Diet Coke is a bit of an addiction for her, and she is taking control of that part of her life in a new way. She’s proud of herself, and those of us in the conversation were encouraging her, but at the same time I was thinking, “Ew. How could anyone enjoy Diet Coke anyway?”
It’s funny, isn’t it? How one person’s temptation is another person’s “I couldn’t care less about that.” Yet another reason not to judge one another.

The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” ~
God uses Moses, a vessel of honor, for His purposes, but He also used Pharaoh.
He used David, a man after His own heart, but He also used Saul.
~ “The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord,
Like the rivers of water,
He turns it wherever He wishes.” ~
My faith, on my best day, is as a mustard seed. How much more do I need Him on my bad days?
~ “if you have faith as a mustard seed,
you will say to this mountain,
‘Move from here to there,’
and it will move” ~
