Let’s be intentional today to listen carefully, weigh our words intentionally, and release them wisely!
I wonder how many times we miss a miracle because we’re too focused on the sound of our own voice.
I don’t know the areas in which you feel God has been a disappointment, but I want to encourage you to choose to be thankful. It’s uncomfortable because choosing to walk away from disappointment requires trust. Do you trust God enough to give your disappointments to him?
