The Confessional Lines of a Recovering Over-Achiever

One day when I was shopping, I came across this t-shirt. After reading the words, my heart sank.  Now before I start sounding like a lecture, I do think that is the trouble with society these days.  We somehow have bought the lie that the more we do, the better we are.  The more we […]

When the New Year started, my goal was to post on this site every other week.  Since over two months have passed since I last posted, obviously I have been rather unsuccessful.  I heard a quote once that said that “Man makes plans.  God laughs.”  While I think that quote might not completely be consistent with God’s […]
