Again Jesus went into a synagogue; and a man was there whose hand was withered. The Pharisees were watching Jesus closely to see if He would heal him on the Sabbath, so that they might accuse Him [in the Jewish high court]. He said to the man whose hand was withered, “Get up and come forward!” He asked them, “Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do evil, to save a life or to kill?” But they kept silent. After looking around at them with anger, grieved at the hardness and arrogance of their hearts, He told the man, “Hold out your hand.” And he held it out, and his hand was [completely] restored. Then the Pharisees went out and immediately began conspiring with the Herodians [to plot] against Him, as to how they might [fabricate some legal grounds to] put Him to death.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such there is no law.
1. Thwarting the enemies schemes (1 Corinthians 2:8)
2. Testing our Hearts

Compassion + Creativity + Commitment = Freedom
Compassion - Walk in THEIR shoes
Creativity - Cultivated on purpose
Commitment - Make you word your bond
7 So, as the Holy Spirit says:
“Today, if you hear his voice,
8 do not harden your hearts
as you did in the rebellion,
during the time of testing in the wilderness,
9 where your ancestors tested and tried me,
though for forty years they saw what I did.
10 That is why I was angry with that generation;
I said, ‘Their hearts are always going astray,
and they have not known my ways.’
11 So I declared on oath in my anger,
‘They shall never enter my rest.’ ”[b]
12 See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. 13 But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. ...
MARK 111 WHEN THEY were getting near to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, He sent ahead two of His disciples2 And instructed them, Go into the village in front of you, and as soon as you enter it, you will find a colt tied, which has never been ridden by anyone; unfasten it and bring it [here].3 If anyone asks you, Why are you doing this? answer, The Lord needs it, and He will send it back here presently.4 So they went away and found a colt tied at the door out in the [winding] open street, and they loosed it.5 And some who were standing there said to them, What are you doing, untying the colt?6 And they replied as Jesus had directed them, and they allowed them to go.7 And they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their outer garments upon it, and He sat on it.8 And many [of the people] spread their garments on the road, and others [scattered a layer of] leafy branches...

The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].
1 Samuel 17:45 - 58Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, a spear, and a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have taunted. This day the Lord will hand you over to me, and I will strike you down and cut off your head. And I will give the corpses of the army of the Philistines this day to the birds of the sky and the wild beasts of the earth, so that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel, and that this entire assembly may know that the Lord does not save with the sword or with the spear; for the battle is the Lord’s and He will hand you over to us.” When the Philistine...

Dr. Ron Fudala is a Board-Certified Chiropractic Neurologist.
Since 1993 he has practiced as a Spine and Nerve diagnostic consultant. As a consultant, Dr. Fudala had a unique way of practicing.
He didn’t provide actual treatment to his patients, but rather gave them the guidance to help them make treatment choices that were a good fit for their individual situation and expectations. Working in this capacity required him to be impartial, objective, and knowledgeable about a wide range of conditions, and the various ways that those conditions could be treated.
Many of Dr. Fudala’s consulting years were within the neurosurgical division of a large neuroscience practice. When there, he developed and supervised the practice’s non-surgical and post-surgical spine care program. This program had a heavy emphasis on teaching appropriate self-care and how “smart...
"Take it to the one who has all the answers"
Yep, those conversations that you have with yourself and later wish you never did. Who doesn't have those? Why do we have inner dialogues? And why are they so negative when we're actually talking to ourselves?
I know I have them, and in some life seasons, I've had them more often than I care to remember.
As a child, a friend's dad told me that I'd never be a salesman. I'm useless at it. This one comment traveled with me for several years. Every time I tried my hand at a sales consultant job I would fail. I would tell myself over and over that I can't do this. I'll see the picture in my mind of that day so long ago; that one comment.
I got teased on a daily basis when I was younger because of my red hair and freckles. I carried that into my adult life. Whenever I walked into a room full of people or had a meeting with a new client, I would tell myself that people were staring.
I'm a dreamer, a...
My life as far back as I can remember was a struggle. Our home wasn’t fit for a dog to live in. Drinking water was from a polluted well, or boiled water from the river. Most of the time we ate frozen apples from the tree we froze during the summer months.When my mother died, we became homeless for years. I was told I would never be able to accomplish anything in life. Going to an all white school was not a positive thing for me. It was understood that if you did not catch on to the work then you were left on your own.Drugs and robbery became much of my life. I chose that lifestyle only to survive. It ended shortly after a deal went wrong I was shot six times. Yes you heard right six times. This was the first miracle in my life, because when I looked at my belly there was no bullet holes nowhere.God truly was putting things in order. A beautiful young girl , who would not...
