Distractions

I’m not using my time wisely. It’s frustrating. There’s so much to do that it gets overwhelming, then I get so overwhelmed that I just can’t do anything. It kind of reminds me of when I was a kid (or maybe I still do this), and I’d try something new. If I couldn’t do it …

Your one

The Pastor reminded us this week to continue to pray for “your one.” The one person in your life (or two) who your heart aches for their salvation. I never heard it called that before, “your one,” but I really like that phrase. It’s assigning responsibility to each of us to pray for one or …
