Object Lesson

I then drilled…

Life is a Journey- Not an Obstacle!

Object Lesson

Such obstacles include our own weaknesses, sins, pride, grudges, drama, stress, envy- you name it! Other ‘obstacles’ might really not be obstacles at all, but we might choose to make them that way such as daily scripture…
