Ever feel stuck, like you’re paralyzed into inaction?Afraid that if you move forward you’ll miss out on what’s here, but if you stay here, you’ll miss out on future blessing. The tension is more common than you think. It’s a matter of choosing between fear vs faith.
Most humans have two ears meant to help us listen. Yet most of us are hard of hearing, even when our ears function well.
