Do you ever feel like God comes up short? Do you ever think that your life would be completely different if God just changed one thing in your life?

I don’t mean that I used to answer yes to those questions. I’ve dealt with all three of those questions this…

“By day the LORD commands his steadfast love, and at night his song is with me, a prayer to the God of my life.” – Psalms 42:8 When I read about God’s steadfast love, I usually feel this growing sense of obligation to get my act together.
