There's someone trying to lead us. It isn't accidental, it's quite purposeful. They desire to motivate us, guide our decisions, and direct our activity.
I've often struggled with claiming the promises in the Word as my own. But what I am learning is it is about me because my life is about He not me.
In my life, I have so often believed I had to manage my health. I've been the high priest of my personal health care. I have done as I saw fit and what I wanted.
