Words of wisdom from the Word and from my friend and author, Jim Stow!

Inspirations and Thoughts

I’ve heard, and it seems right to me that the evil one tempts us but God tests us. God never tempts us. The difference, as I understand it, is that the evil one tempts us by holding out something in front of us that looks desirable but would be harmful for us, something against what God wants.

Good plan…but necessary so they can discover where the pinching originates.  As the day approached, I prayed more consistently and constantly but my mind kept reminding me of the last time I had one and the tearful screams as that needle…oh, my.
