Keep It Simple

Douglas WymanBlogLeave a Comment

The Basics: DO NOT allow some argument about things we all find hard to decide distract you. Keep it simple and live. As you know all people everywhere do things they know they should not do. It is such behavior that separates us from God’s love and presence. Without God, we cannot ever have life as God is life, and that apart from God is not alive.

Now imagine further that you find yourself imprisoned for…
