Stuff Geoff said:

“It's amazing how quickly we can go from "more than happy" to "mistake."  At it's best, happiness quickly wears off.”

“Do you find encouragement and comfort in your relationship with God? “

“Jesus stepped down from heaven to go to the lowest possible position, then God lifted him up.”  

“Paul lists all the things we should do, then knowing it's impossible, explains the path to joy:  Cooperate with God.”

“We grit our teeth and say, "I'm working! I'm working!"  But Paul tells us we've got it wrong--GOD is working in us.  The key is to cooperate with God.”

“Where do we start?  "Do everything without complaining or arguing, so no one can criticize you," (Phil 2:12-13).”
