At the same time I found myself on this high, the Lord reminded me that it wasn’t always going to … Continue reading Dear Diary, I am not a washed up has been!
About a week ago, I gave a talk to a group of ladies. I asked a question, “What holds you back from God?” A few of them stayed quiet and I reminded them that there is no wrong answer.
