Better Than Jesus?

Did the title grab your attention? Well, what I read the other day in John 7 sure stopped me in my tracks!

 So I saw this meme on the internet, and thought I'd comment about it. And then God begins to peel the layers off and heal in between each so that your heart can once again love and receive love.  It's a real process, for sure. It takes time--for me, several decades.

Ever Feel Like You don’t Belong?

  Most of my life I have felt left out, looked over, and that I didn’t really fit in or belong. Some of this was because I moved so many times during my school years.
