I have and am still learning that darkness is God's training ground. We should not deny that we all battle depression and co-dependency in some fashion and should accept that it's ok. It's normal. This wicked world is operated by the underground ruler. This is why the Word says if we draw close to Him, he will draw close to us. I challenge you to really meditate on what that really means and how it applies to your life situations. To me, it means most of the time we are what I call "drunk" in our own selfish stinking thinking. In order to make ourselves FEEL better, we have to justify our actions; i.e. convincing ourselves to drive home drunk or to quit your job because you're "angry" when you didn't get "your" way. I mean really, didn't Rick Warren state in the first sentence of his Purpose Driven Life book "it's not about YOU". I'm so tired if always thinking abou me. It's getting old. Pay it forward is not just a statement or concept, it's Jesus' way of allowing us to change the world. I'm not even sure I can recall scripture stating Jesus doing anything for Himself?? What do you do selfishly that you will pass down to your kids as well as the rest of your bloodline?

Printing this out. This has been a hot topic of conversation lately among my family, how to pray effectively for an unsaved loved one. Will come back and comment after I have read through them all. Thanks for posting! Relevant to all, every day of every week.

Pray these scriptures in faith knowing that God loves His word! As much as you love your lost family and friends, The Lord loves them way more. The word of God tells us that it is NOT His will that ANY perish, but have everlasting life. So, as we pray for the lost, we are coming into agreement with Heaven and His will
