I was so excited about my newly found faith that I wanted to do everything right but that did not happen and when I messed up, I would stop walking with the Lord but one day He called me by my name and said to me; Lizzie do not stop walking.

In a reversal of fortunes the blessed materially are never poorer spiritually.
