    Thank you Pastor Dave. I appreciate this chart. It has caused me to stop and think about just that, how to pray the negative into a positive. This will be very helpful for me to use in my everyday life both at work and at home and even toward any of the negative things I see within myself. I needed something like this at this very moment in life. Thank you!

      Hi Kim,

      I’m so glad this post was helpful. My posts are pretty eccelectic, but it seems that each post has exactly what someone needs – whether its encouragement, hope, a new understanding or appreciation of the gospel, or the like. I trust you and your family are well and that God is using you mightily in others lives!
