Running From God






I shared with a friend the other day, that I used to run away from God. I felt that if I opened up to him completely, he would “take over” my life and I wouldn’t be in control anymore 😀😀😀. I was also intimidated and overwhelmed by him. No sooner had I grasped a revelation about him[…]
