The heart of humility

What happens when we put personal ego aside and allow God’s allness and goodness to control the details of our lives?

 This writer was weighed down by her responsibilities and found herself bed-ridden and in severe pain. Read how she humbly turned to God in prayer, was released from this false sense of burden, and regained her freedom, peace and joy.

— Christ Jesus
