Spiritual Survival Kit | Knowing When To Speak Up And When To Sit Down

when to speak

In today’s society, oversharing and saying exactly what you feel at the exact moment that you feel it has become the norm. I’m all for a good emotional cleanse and for keeping it real but from a Christian standpoint, there are times where we should speak up and times where we should probably have a seat.

Life is tough, there’s no argument there. But being the loving Father that He is, God has given us everything that we need to win in life, even in the difficult seasons, but we have to find our tools through Him. I want to start this series by talking about the tool that […]
