Tethered

Day 130. Focus – Jesus. Eyes on Him.  How else can I live in peace? Unless my heart be tethered to my Lord, I will lose heart. Unless my feet remain within my Good Shepherd’s pasture, I will lose my way. Unless my eyes remain trained on His eyes of love, I will stray for … More Tethered

Day 124 Psalm 124
