Rev. Kenneth Roberts, Pastor of the Ashtabula Pent. Church of God, located in Ashtabula, Ohio expounds on the scripture James 1:19. You're only as good as you are when you're under pressure. Most people can look pretty good from the outside until they come under pressure and that is when the true person is exposed. When we have God living in our hearts, he gives us peace to overcome the many obstacles that block our path as we travel down the road of life.
