If He's telling us not to do something that we decide to do anyway, we'll experience the painful loss of His anointing. Grace equals ability. God gives us grace to… Continue reading Receive God’s Grace

I think if we are more truthful, we will actually get more respect than we do by trying to hide everything, pretending we're perfect.… Continue reading Honesty Outweighs Perfection
