The enemy usually works in very subtle ways… Usually, he doesn’t show up wearing his “red devil suit with pitchfork and pointy tail.” …he usually tries to fashion his work—his webs and schemes— in such a way, that they would seem almost exactly like something that would be of God….

When God gave me the URL that started this whole thing back in 2018… “www.lifeinthesecretplace.com” I don’t think I had even a clue—any sense of depth, of what “Life in the Secret Place” really means…and I’m on this journey, that I’ll be on for the rest of my life, to understand and discover what it… Read More 10.13.2020 – A relationship that grows and flourishes from the secret place…
