Breeds frustration and jealousy, not fruit. Be the best you can be with the tools you’ve been given. Seeds must first be planted, then grow (through the process), and mature before producing fruit (being productive), and so must we.
Galatians 6:4 The Message (MSG)
4-5 Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.

PRAISE REPORT FROM A LISTENER SENT TO US BY EMAIL…
From around September to the end of November of 2014 I was going through some extremely financial struggles. I became very ill from worry. Me and my two kids were homeless, staying with different people due to my financial situation. One day I found your station and started listening to the music and praying along with you on the Prayer Requests. After my youngest son went to school, I would drive to a nearby park while listening to you on and praying with you. All of you at Immanuel Broadcasting became my family; your prayers penetrated my soul. I stayed in God’s word all morning, evening, and night. Things became so difficult for me and my two sons that we eventually moved to a hotel where we are now staying. You all saved my life and stabilized my soul. If it were not for your words of comfort and the meaningful songs that you play I would have been completely lost. Your motivation and comfort along with God’s Words and Promises has bought me so much peach. Even though we are in a hotel, we sleep well at night. I now have a full time job with a great income. Thanks so much for your words of encouragement. I have never called into your show, but have stayed on the side lines, uplifting all the prayer requests that you all pray daily. I am a spiritual prayer warrior who are on walls interceding on behalf of all on the Prayer lists. Even though I am agreement with all the requests, your words of encouragement also penetrate my soul and bring me great joy. Thanks so much for all that you do. You are really making a difference!

God is still working on the canvas of your life. He’s using every detail by taking the negative spaces, and hi-lites, and working all things together for your good. He is making (you) HIS MASTERPIECE! What brings real value to a piece of art is not the canvas or the paint, but the ARTIST! You are His masterpiece, you are His creation, you are a work in progress. He’s making you valuable and priceless so that when others view you all they see is the work of the Master. When others see you, they aren’t going to see a few bad moments in your life, or a few bad decisions, but they will see the total work God is doing in you and through you. Let your life point to the Artist, and be His picture of grace in the earth!
“…He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that EVERY DETAIL in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.”
