Am I willing to be “weak” in the thing He asks me to do?

Have you ever decided not to do something because you just didn’t think you had it in yourself to do it?

“Mirroring” God

I love studying and understanding “human behavior”… Perhaps you’ve heard of the term “mirroring“? It’s said that “mirroring” with another person helps one to better “connect” with that person by “imitating verbal or nonverbal behaviors.” The interesting thing is, many times we “mirror” another person during conversation without even realizing that we’re doing it. We’re… Read More “Mirroring” God

You are not “anxiety.”

“When I am afraid,I will put my trust in You.”—Psalm 56:3 Did you notice in that verse, that it says… “when” I am afraid?
