Changing Behavior

As we make those changes and work on BECOMING we will feel a greater measure of personal peace and satisfaction. Doing good and being good allows us to more freely feel God’s love.

But those “what if’s” are often the cause for us becoming stuck in the mud. In order to become free from the mud, we need to remove those things that are preventing us from moving forward.
