Sometimes Signs From God Are Hard to Understand & That’s O.K.
For it is often in the struggle to hear from God that we STOP
For OFTEN if we do not stop and listen.
We will not hear as we are seeking to live our lives OUR Way and not HIS WAY

Your Personal Tax Return/IRS Form 1040 is Due April 15th for the 2013 Tax Year
If you have not yet met with your CPA to get your taxes done you will want to do so this week as those who are any later than that run GREAT risk of having their returns completed after the 4-15-14 due date.
In the event there is no way for whatever reason the IRS does grant an automatic 6 month extension or until Oct. 15th to file.

Order does not happen naturally; we must invite God to bring order
1 Corinthians 14:33 says, "For God is not a God of confusion but of peace." And then verse 40 says, "But all things should be done decently and in order." When chaos comes into our lives, we must seek the Prince of Peace. As the devotion says, ' Order does not happen naturally.' We must invite God to bring order and believe me, He delights in order! Once things are back in order, we can see His blessings and faithfulness in greater ways than we could ever ask or imagine. Longing for peace in your crazy life? Ask Him. He will give you a peace that surpasses all understanding as He puts things in order!

We ALL are a fool for something.
Is it your pride just like Eve in the Garden of Eden?
Is it your willingness to think “what will a little sin hurt” just like Adam in the Garden of Eden?
Is it your lust like that of King David?
Or is yours right in front of you and you don’t even realize it?
Is your sin that you are spending too much time at the gym and not taking care of your family?
Is your sin in your refrigerator and you are not taking care of your body?
