Perspective – Part 2: The Anointing of Joseph and the Grace of Samson (What you need to think and pray about these days)

Perspective during these times
You are going to fall into one of these two buckets and I need to tell you…either one you fall into requires you to REALLY think of a few things and pray about a couple of things. It doesn’t matter what level of faith you’re at.
Speaking of critical, it is important for you to start reading this piece having established ONE MAJOR POINT: You are fundamentally and inherently more powerful than you have been acting. Now it’s time to live in that power a little bit more than you have been living. Ok….let’s get into it.

When You’re Off (Your Life’s) Schedule
