Wisdom = Obedience

Think of it this way. It is possible to study hard and become an expert on the right technique for doing every meaningful exercise with free weights. But if you never pick up a free-weight and actually do the exercises all of your knowledge will be of no benefit to your muscles or health at all. 

Quiet Presence 

Quiet Presence 

That’s when the old familiar anxiety I haven’t felt in years rose up in me.

Almost involuntarily the cry of my heart came, picking up momentum as it tumbled out of my head.

“Pick me, Jesus. Please, please, please pick me. Not out of pity and please don’t just settle for me. Pick me because You want me on Your team, not because You’re so nice You have to take me.”
