Overcoming What Is Holding You Back From The Life You Want

We are only a few short months into 2017, but I already feel like I’ve wasted much of it. I just feel as if I should be farther along in this race, but I’m not. And that bothers me. It’s been nagging my mind pretty frequently and is a familiar topic in my prayer life. As I stood in church …

When You Think God’s Promises Are For Everyone But You

It’s funny the baggage we carry through life while leaving other good things behind. The bad stuff really is easier to believe (thanks, Pretty Woman).
