This is an issue I continue to fight to overcome. Let’s pray together for healing.
@KAP That’s me, too. Judgemental of everyone and everything, which I justify as discernment. 😔
Sounds like my Italian Father. Couldn’t help himself.

May God give the medical staff the guidance they require to do your op,and may all our prayers be answered that all goes well for you! God Bless.
Hi Bruce, great talk. Last year I gave up my usual glass of wine with dinner. I haven’t really taken it up again, however there is the occasional glass with friends for celebrations. The previous year I took up praying the Litany of Hours. Still do it. So I think this year I am going to pray the Surrender prayer daily in order that I will hand over all my life to God. Pray for me that I may succeed. Helen
I am going to work on being kinder to others in my thoughts and with others
Julie, I hope you don’t mind, but I am going to adopt this after listening to why I give up things for lent. I just added to be kinder “to myself” and others. Have a lovely day, Lisa

I am thankful for the advice concerning Lent. I am thinking of several ways to improve myself in the eyes of God, not just Lent, but beyond.
Loved the explanation. I will make my lent offering more meaningful. Thanks.
I want to purify my heart and allow Jesus to take it over. I want to truly encounter God while strengthening the faith of my brothers and sisters.
to be less self-centred and to control what I look at over the internet
This video was enlightening. I was raised catholic and simply followed my parents’ instructions. I now feel I have a deeper understanding. 😌 I am facing a time of transformation as I’ve just recently been diagnosed with cancer. I am hopeful guidance from your ministry will help me day by day with my cancer journey.

Thank you for this message. I want to change certain behavior patterns and with that pray the surrender prayer every day.
Thanks for this beautiful message. I am staying in South Africa and we are all so negative about the things that is happening in our beautiful country. I am giving up all this negative thoughts and be the smiling sunshine person that I used to be. A good word and a person that is going to be positive. Thanks for crossing my path. May God bless you!!!
Dear Frieda, I love that you are going to go back and be your beautiful smiling sunshine person, Thats what God would want us to be. Not living with our head in the sand but knowing we can trust in Our God for all things. Proverbs 31:25 states” Strength and honour are her clothing(for she knows God gives us them) and she can laugh at the days to come.” because our God holds us in his hands. Gods blessings to you.
