WHERE IS YOUR POWER?… 9/20/2021 … Monday …

I like to post right after I pray so it is fresh on my mind. Lately, I haven’t been able to get it all in. This week the scripture has a theme of power, not power over, but power with. Power with love, with listening, with caring, with the Divinity. Have you ever thought howContinue reading “WHERE IS YOUR POWER?… 9/20/2021 … Monday …”
