I recently had a situation where I made a mistake at work. I could prove I made the mistake, and it was going to cost me a few hundred dollars, it was the money I’d been working for all week.

Well I talked to people over and over for three days, on the phone, with customer service, and I kept getting the run around. Today it seemed hopeless, I started feeling emotional about it cause we need the money. instead of lashing out I kept thanking the Lord, even though everything inside of me wanted to yell at the people on the other line, I stayed calm for the most part.

No one seemed to want to help and every time I thought someone on the phone was trying to help I’d get another email saying my request was declined. If anyone knows me, truly knows me you would know this is a big deal. I wrote of this the other day Paul and Silas praising The Lord in chains. The chains are falling off I don’t know who did it cause every time I talked to a new person I’d get a new declined email.

When we praise The Lord, when we are being persecuted or going through a trial chains fall off. When we praise the Lord in these times breakthrough happens. Please be encouraged. I didn’t do it on my own every time I felt my emotions getting high I had to start praying again. The truth is if I had let myself get angry I’m. It sure if anyone would have helped. It may have even been an angel that did, because I never did find out how it got sent. The request I sent were all denied by the world. The Lord sees your hurt, He cares about your pains, and worries. I think the moral is keep giving it to Him, do your part and He will take care of it all.

I just want to take a minutes and thank Him in front of everyone that cares to read about how good He is He will always take care of his own when they keep looking to Him and stop complaining. Praise Him because He is good.


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.
