“My child, lay aside that self-help book, it will not help you. My Book will help you! You will find the answers you are seeking in My Book.”
“My child, . . . do ye still not know that I love thee so? It is My love that will deliver you. There is no self-help book that will bring you freedom and deliverance from your bondage, only My book will. Look no more for your answers in man written books, but choose My book. I will be your deliverance.”

I feel that as I overfed my fleshly desires, your presence left. Didn’t I say yesterday that I wanted to be free of this bondage? Then last night, I was in the kitchen stuffing my face until well after 10p.m. Lord, how can I ever break free from this vicious cycle of defeat? Continue reading CONFESSION
