Some experiences turn you on and capture your attention, while others turn you off or bore you to tears.

They came from God! He gave them to you for a reason, and he wants you to use them to serve others.
How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping it according to Your word. With all my heart I have sought You; Do not let me wander from Your commandments. Your word I have treasured in my heart, That I may not sin against You.Psalm 119.9-11
Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.James 5.16
