It is Within Each of Us

“Each man must sooner or later learn to stand alone with his God; nothing else avails. Nothing else will ever make you master your own destiny.” Emilie Cady, "Lessons in Truth"  “He [Jesus] knew, as no other man had, that what God has done God can do, that what was true of Him must be potentially …

91 Things

A friend of mine posted something the other day that I think we should think about. It's been five years since her divorce and a time, I am sure, when she felt her life was completely upside down. She stepped into her "new" future one tiny step at a time without a plan, without a …
