    I Know I'Ve Never Been Enough... But I Want To Change

    I know I've been unworthy of help from God. It's not that I don't believe in Him. It's not that I've done the most terrible sin. I think it is because I have never been enough of a child for Him. I seek His help only when I am in a really great trouble. And I hadn't lived up to...

    Unhappy With Where You Are?

    Where we are in life is exactly where we want to be. Not necessarily because it's what we want but because it's good enough. When good enough isn't good enough anymore THAT'S when we start living :)
