DIRECTIONS
Think on these things and you will have good, solid directions for daily living. What is it that messes us up? Our unwillingness to bend the knee to the Lord. He is with us and He will guide us but we are filled with pride and selfishness that pull us away from the Lord. Ask the Lord to give you the strength, wisdom, mercy and grace that you need to stand and serve Him.
