My Scars & Wounds

I hurried across campus to get to my new job on time. Oh Texas weather how I loath thee. It was hot as wasabi! I was really not a fan that day since I was “dressed up” for work.

Upon finishing my eleven month journey I sought the Father for direction. What’s next?   He began excavating what was really in my heart and giving me hope for the next season of my life.   He confronted me with my faith. “You say you have faith in M...
