The Missing Ingredient

liveuncaged

Sometimes it happens by neglect. Sometimes, hurry. I’m not sure which it was this time around, but nonetheless I realized it last night. Perhaps my discouragement about my career runs deeper without it. What am I talking about? The Bible. My lifeline, my encouragement, my perplexity, my hope. Why do I let it slip from […]

WOWISH verses

I read these verses today and they resonated with the state of my heart: Lord, You will grant us peace, For all we have accomplished is really from You.
