I admit that I haven’t yet acquired the absolute fullness that I’m pursuing, but I run with passion into his abundance so that I may reach the purpose that Jesus Christ has called me to fulfill and wants me to discover. I don’t depend on my own strength to accomplish this; however I do have…

Don’t yield to fear or be troubled in your hearts—instead, be courageous!”// John 14:27 TPT Chaos is rampant. Division is the norm. Cruelty is praised.
