The Reason We Go Astray …

Date October 24, 2017

It’s amazing to me how many times I find myself “off track” in the priorities God has laid down for me. There is no doubt that I want His best and I want it sooner than later. Then, it takes so little to cause me to “rabbit trail” away from those things. Jesus talked about the […]
