Danger is Real; Fear is a Choice

 Funny that as I read my bible this morning, I thought of a quote actor Will Smith said in the movie, “After Earth”.  He told his son “danger is real, yet fear is a choice”.  Sometimes we start on journeys, a slave to fear before we even encounter danger.  We anticipate the danger.  We areContinue reading “Danger is Real; Fear is a Choice”

For weeks I have questioned if God would fulfill his good promises to me.  I mean why would he? He already took two great promises from me.  Would he do that only to fulfill it later? Why?  Sometimes it is so hard to understand why things happen.  It is so hard to fathom how hurtContinue reading

Be like a little kid — and share
