Remember that living and walking by the Spirit is being under His constant guidance and influence and following Him step by step. We must follow Him constantly and obey His direction. When we obey the Holy Spirit we are crucifying the flesh-– starving it! Read More

Detours

Detours
God’s timing says, “Trust Me” when I want a resolution.
God’s timing says, “Wait on Me” when I think I need “it” immediately.
God’s timing says, “Have Faith” when I grow weary.
