ZChurch message for July 23, 2022 (see full service at https://youtu.be/dmYMINcdCeo)
Thoughts, feelings, and words hold us back or move us forward. Most people have a hard time controlling their thoughts, feelings, and words… No! Everyone has a hard time controlling thoughts, feelings, and words! However, with God’s help, we can change. In this message, Pastor Larry shares a simple technique that will help you take control of your thoughts, feelings, and words.

James 3:2 For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.
1 Corinthians 13:3-7 (The Message) Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self. Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have. Love doesn’t strut. Doesn’t have a swelled head, doesn’t force itself on others, isn’t always “me first,” doesn’t fly off the handle, doesn’t keep score of the sins of others, doesn’t revel when others grovel, takes pleasure in the flowering of truth, puts up with anything, trusts God always, always looks for the best, never looks back, but keeps going to the end. LOVE NEVER FAILS.
