Welcome to my blog! I hope to be a resource to help you in your walk with God. Now more than ever we need to get back to the basic fundamentals of moral living and take a stand for what is right and truthful with God as our ultimate authority. His Word is reliable and preserved and can be trusted, so that is the basis for my advice and teaching. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or topics you would like me to cover. I look forward to sharing what God has placed on my heart. See my website at http://www.dawnfoss.tateauthor.com and http://www.dawnfoss.com/ for books and music I have written that will enrich your life!

Ezekiel 22:30: "And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none." Let's stand in the gap together!

Entitlement...or Empowerment?

I heard a discussion today on the radio program, "Discover the Word" about entitlement, and how instead of thinking "I deserve", think, "I am responsible to..." Instead of I deserve a living, I am responsible to work hard and get an education so I can do the work I love. Instead of I deserve to be happy, I am responsible to do the things that will accomplish my goals so that I feel happy. The burden doesn't lie on others; that is disempowering. What is empowering is to realize that you are responsible for the things that pertain to yourself, and you can make a difference. Yes, with God's help and God's grace, but seek Him and His will and then DO it...don't wait for things to happen to you, because that is no one's responsibility except your own.
