God’s sufficiency is the constant rhythm beating in our lives as believers, yet for some reason we get so stuck in the muddled days that we can’t lift our gaze out of the mire to see the glory we were made for.…

Originally Published in Be Still Magazine, Issue 8 

My sweet Granny’s hands are frail, her skin pale and worn with time. Her eyes are full of patience, and her hair is white with years of wisdom. The heart within her chest beats with the rhythm of salvation, and the blood within her veins pumps with the sounds of grace.…
