I don’t know what your story is. I don’t know the battle you’re facing. I don’t know what your dealing with that’s keeping you from freely accepting what God is offering you. I don’t know what it is that’s making you feel like you don’t stand a chance of God actually loving you and forgiving … Continue reading Loved and Wanted
Is there some part of yourself that just drives you crazy? Some aspect of your personality that you wish was different? Comparison is our enemy. That was last week’s topic and this week’s sort of adds to that a bit.

Several years ago, my husband and I did Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University. (I highly recommend it, by the way, though that’s not the point of my post.)
