I remember a time when I prayed about everything, and I do mean EVERYTHING. And I also remember a time when I barely prayed at all. But when it comes to decision making, sometimes praying about it isn’t the answer. [Read more…]
Getting what you want is simple because God doesn’t make life complicated. But, it will require some spiritual work. Are you up for that?
For everything BIG I every wanted in my life, from earning my degrees to buying my houses to childrearing, I knew it would take more than ME, more than myself, my time, my energy, my money (what little I had), to make it happen. Anything bigger than me always required more than I had to make it happen. It took God.
