Take away my pride

The Bible says pride comes before a fall. I sometimes catch myself praying for direction and then when my prayers are answered I don’t give the Father the praise He deserves. Some may think it wasn’t God I did that on my own, and my question to them would be, He gave His very life after living in paradise and came to the earth with all the pain, sickness, hurt, and pain. Why is it so hard for His children to be grateful.

How can we possibly not thank Him if we truly believe. We should thank Him even when things aren’t going our way. The sad truth is most Christians don’t even when things are going great. One of my favorite Bible stories is when Paul and Silas were in prison they praised the Lord and the chains broke.

I don’t want to be the one to miss my blessing because I was complaining. I have been going through it this week, and this word was for me too. I wasn’t going to post about it but all day I felt like the Lord wanted me to say it. I love you all and am not bashing anyone just encouraging you if you believe in Him praise Him for the things your believing Ge will do before He does it.

The book of James compares the mouth and tongue as the rudder of the ship it controls where each person life is headed. So complain if you want too but I would not recommend it.


My name is James Carter, and you are visiting breaking bad habits. I believe everyone has habits, good and bad. When I was 34 years old, I woke up and looked in the mirror. I was shocked, I had been drinking every night for so long, that I was fat. I weighed 355 pounds, and ran out of breathe and almost passed out to try and tie my shoes. This was the day I started to wake up. I had a long journey ahead of me, but with prayer, meditation, fasting and exercise I was on my way. It’s been 6 years since then I’ve quit most of my bad habits, and I’m down to below 200 pounds. I have to be honest, that day in 2014 I never dreamed I would have gotten this far. If someone like me can quit, so can you.
