The eldest brother is self righteous; the youngest brother is worldly and carnal. Sometimes, we’re both brothers in the parable, the prodigal son, and sometimes this wavering…sucks.
“We must cease striving and trust God to provide what He thinks is best and in whatever time He chooses to make it available. But this kind of trusting doesn’t come naturally. It’s a spiritual crisis of the will in which we must choose to exercise faith.” Swindoll Charles R. I am tired of walking …
It is my heart’s desire to not see anyone I care about settle for what is less than them. Jesus gave His life, so you may live. What greater way to honor Him, than to live full of freedom and abundance, embracing the philosophy to never settle!
Sometimes, it really does feel like these rough seasons are here to stay. That there is no silver lining in sight.

If you’re thinking change in your life is impossible, then don’t let Satan or your flesh fool you! A Christian in Christ has no choice but to grow!
Discipline does not feel good at it. Especially, when you feel like you’re being unfairly punished. Why does God use punishment as a tool? How useful is it?
Sometimes, life takes everything out of you! Life drains every piece of you and gives nothing back. Thank Jesus! He is our Sustainer and Refugee in our time of need.
