God In A Mom

I recently attended the home going celebration of the mother of a dear friend of mine.  (I know this may seem strange but I really like going to funerals.  It's a time of honoring the one who has moved to Heaven and it becomes a time that I reflect on my own life.) Anyway, my [...]

Timing

Anyone else out there guilty of being a tiny bit of a control freak? If we're being vulnerable for a minute, then I have both of my hands raised. If you have your hand raised too, do you ever find yourself struggling to trust God because His plans for you aren't lining up with your [...]
