Growth Comes with Challenges

Background scripture: Jeremiah 12 “So Jeremiah, if you’re worn out in this footrace with men, what makes you think you can race against horses” (Jeremiah 12:5, MSG)? This week has been a rough one.

Out of this emptiness I have been seeking and asking for too much of my loved ones to fill a void that only Jesus can fill.
