Sometimes, I struggle to take compliments because I’m not sure if I agree with them or I’m being praised for something I don’t particularly value.

No matter how strong we are in our relationship with Our Creator, we all feel confused on our spiritual journey sometimes. With so many opinions and options swirling around, […]
When we’re deeply rooted in God, there’s nothing to do … no motion, no words. In the silence, we can stand tall and strong like oaks, providing shelter for others.
