We are positioned to perfectly witness God’s divine orchestration of our lives so that we might increasingly come to know Him and love Him.
We have a lovely parting gifts from the fall in the Garden – opinions. Opinions are actually imprisoning walls containing me and block my acceptance of God's sovereign move.
