Now, not that every ‘gets‘ Him, as-in understands; it’s a ‘gets‘ Him, as-in accepts. Both are actually very true statements, however hard it may be to actually prove either. But, the core point is that we consider how odd it is that God has made Himself wholly available to everyone… well… sort of everyone. OK, […]

Many times in my life, I’ve been ashamed, embarrassed, or just plain dissatisfied with my own ‘self’, my own being, my own performance or actions.
