I have to share this lovely post with you all. If you haven't followed My Faith Ministry, check this blog out. This article especially hit home for me, as another hot tempered Christian who has found grace from God in even the most unlikely of times. https://wp.me/paNuo7-11

Struggling to find peace when I look at the world. Can some of my mature brothers and sisters in Christ help me?
I could feel the heat of the day, the echoing of the sun's rays off the pavement as I ran between two fields. Both full and ready for harvest. Something green and tall to my left and bright, golden wheat to my right. While I felt no pain, other than the burning of the scorched blacktop on my bare feet, I noticed I was bleeding.
