Level Up

“So, Jeremiah, if you’re worn out in this footrace with men, what makes you think you can race against horses? And if you can’t keep your wits during times of calm, what’s going to happen when troubles break loose like the Jordan in flood?” Jeremiah 12:5 MSG Have you ever complained to God about someContinue reading “Level Up”

Prioritize Patience

By your patience possess your souls (Luke 21:19) NKJV I was never one who particularly enjoyed patience. I guess that is the “go-go-go” nature within me.
