•You’re in a miracle. You are and you are in one.
•Holy Spirit moving makes people mad that want a dead church. They don’t like that things shift and change because they can’t control it. 3 songs, a prayer, and a little bit of truth won’t carry you through the crap of life. You need more. Whether or not you like it is irrelevant. If you’ll take awful medicine because you know it’ll help you, why would you reject the excellent Holy Spirit who can help you out?
•when you disagree with someone, watch what your attitude is. Disagreement is fine and good and can be helpful, but you need to be in a good mind and heart to do so.

★ Matthew 6:1-4 NCV “Be careful! When you do good things, don’t do them in front of people to be seen by them. If you do that, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven. “When you give to the poor, don’t be like the hypocrites. They blow trumpets in the synagogues and on the streets so that people will see them and honor them. I tell you the truth, those hypocrites already have their full reward. So when you give to the poor, don’t let anyone know what you are doing. Your giving should be done in secret. Your Father can see what is done in secret, and he will reward you.
