Here’s the thing

  The easiest thing would be to leave. Because it entails just running away. It means just up and leaving everything behind. No need to fix things. No need to mend relationships. No need to make an effort. Just leave everything and be done with it, and move on. The easiest thing would be to…

Life is a Beautiful Mess

‭‭Acts of the Apostles‬ ‭26:4-5, 9-10, 12-13, 19-23‬ ‭NLT‬‬ God created us to be in families, and these families to be in communities, and these communities in turn to belong to local churches.

Acceptance

““He is the God who made the world and everything in it. Since he is Lord of heaven and earth, he doesn’t live in man-made temples, and human hands can’t serve his needs—for he has no needs. He himself gives life and breath to everything, and he satisfies every need. From one man he created…
