• Some encouragement from Ephesians

    These verses have long been part of my favourites. This version highlights them in a different way for me.

He won’t force this on us.  This week, my post on the fear of having missed your calling hit home…

I hit a low point and wanted to curl up and ignore life for a while.  And then this verse came up. The whole chapter has some gems but this spoke right to where I am at. I am human. I will have times when I am brought low.…
