Today’s Program

Remember this? “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil…”

While it may feel like you failed simply because you’ve been tempted, temptation itself is not sin. The key is what you DO with the temptation. Dr. Randy is here today to help you deal practically with temptation and hear your stories of success.

We’d love to hear from you! Join the Intentional Living conversation at 1-888-888-1717. You can also comment on THIS PAGE (below), weigh in with your thoughts and questions on our Facebook page, and you can follow us on Twitter @TheILCenter.

Consider this:

“The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.”
— 1 Corinthians 10:13

Intentional Blog: The Power of Forgiveness

Good friends are good for the soul, providing positive experiences, motivation and inspiration for life.

On the other hand, friendships turned sour can poison your soul. That’s why it’s so important to forgive those who have hurt you. Forgiveness eliminates the negative effect on your physical and emotional well-being. Forgiveness washes away grudges, resentments and becomes ointment for those unhealed wounds. It keeps you from being swallowed by your own sense of bitterness.

How can you commit to change and forgiveness? (click for the rest of the Blog Post)
