Go deep Part 2

choose wisely

In the previous discussion on this topic, we discussed going deeper, abiding in-Christ.  I referenced an analogy of a sphere of glass windows that I am dwelling in with Christ..  Each window is bombarded with a storm (thoughts) from the outside, and I can open a window if I choose to serve these things… serve the world.

Illustrations

Wisdom and Choice

Choose wisely students of life! “Learn the lesson or retake the course, it’s that simple.” – Nate Elarton

can boast.”  Praise the Lord. Read more…
