I’ve been listening to the song “How He Loves.” It starts by saying “He is jealous for me.” I just want to remind you that He loves you! Despite our daily failures, walking away from Him to pursue our on desires… He loves us! He loves us like we’ve never done anything wrong. There are…

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. Colossians‬ ‭3:2‬ ‭ Just focusing on what Mac mentioned in his sermon yesterday…Focus on the Giver and not the gift. I have been focused lately on healing for me…the ringing in my ears, and sharp pains in my right arm. I…
