The best, most wonderful, precious and amazing thing we can do is pray. But what happens when we don’t feel like it?
Most of my blogs are about prayer. Jesus spent a huge amount of His time in prayer. The answer to all things Christian is prayer. The modern Christian has little else to do but pray… But there are circumstances where prayer just seems out of reach.
We aren’t worthy, we haven’t been answered, we feel let down, we are stuck in a rut, angry at God, need a break, it hasn’t yielded positive results in months. And… etc.
Christians aren’t called to be perfect, but we are made to endure. The song “It is Well”, if you aren’t familiar with it’s roots, was penned by a man who just lost 4 children in a boating accident. He didn’t have the strength to do much. So he wrote. When…

The Fruit of the Spirit – Longsuffering
Anger and animosity can be the result of many negative influences. The evil influence we all are infected with is our own selfish nature. And our human abilities to make major improvements are pitifully weak. We need God’s help!
In Galatians 5:19-21, the apostle Paul refers to our human nature as “the flesh” and our selfish tendencies as the “works of the flesh.” These include “hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders”!
