“Life is like an iceberg. Ninety percent is under the water, invisible to the naked eye.
The only way to understand the supernatural world is through the Bible.
I don’t know how I existed without knowing God, or living in His love 24/7,
or experiencing His peace no matter what the circumstances, or gaining His wisdom in all of life’s choices.
I can honestly say, “I now have no fear of lack, sickness, or even death.””
~ Sid Israel Roth,
Author, Talk Show Host & Telly Award (2010)

that will either code for outcomes that
threaten health and pave the way for disease
or create an internal environment
conducive to longevity and disease resistance.”

The Wolf We Feed

“An old Cherokee told his grandson,

“My son, there is a battle between two wolves inside us all.

One is Evil:

It is Anger, Jealousy, Greed, Resentment, Inferiority, Lies and Ego.

The other is Good:

It is Joy, Peace, Love, Hope, Humility, Kindness, Empathy & Truth.

The boy thought about it, and asked,
“Grandfather, which wolf wins?”

The old man quietly replied,

“The one you feed.””
