Every day we are faced with choices and choosing Jesus is at the top of the list as a Christian. In this sinful broken world will you choose Jesus?

Will You Choose Jesus?

I’ve learned that the greatest usurper to God in my life isn’t the devil, but me

“The older I get the more I realize that perhaps the greatest usurper to God’s authority in my life isn’t the devil but me. And so I want to rule my life on my own directing God to get out of my way. I also seem to not have a problem placing expectations on God and so I want him to show up and I want him to be there for me, just in the right ways as I would need him to, but I take great issue when actually it’s the other way around.”
