Living Life by God’s Design – Not by Default: Part 1

We only get one shot at living life – one chance. Why, then, would we ever spend it passively, in a mode of default? According to the dictionary, “default” is defined as “a failure to act; inaction or neglect.” To translate that, living by default would mean a failure to show up for our lives, […]
