So today was rough I got tired after this video it was a longer one- Matthew 5 had 48 verses in it, I'm thinking maybe for the future I would break these longer studies up into two parts/ but I will wait for feedback before making that decision- please let me know how this video was...I love feedback because it helps to evolve my teachings and how I approach others with the Word of God moving forward!!!
-Many Moons ago I served in Iraq, and lived close to burn pits...To make a long story short I have chronic COPD from breathing in all those toxins and bad odors over the years!!! COPD makes me extremely tired at times, I have headaches mainly due to to low oxygen levels at times: Sometimes I get spells of dizziness along with constant chest pains and pressure: I need to be careful because I'm also prone to pneumonia as well as bronchitis: But the Lord gives the strength to get these studies done!!! Always remember Great is His Faithfulness to us All!!!
