1 A Place Called There
Life is so exciting. Our main interest and
desire in life should be to ask ourselves, "Am I
following Jesus? Am I where He sent me? Am I
doing what He told me to do? Am I in the place
that He has led me?"
I am convinced that if we will follow Jesus,
every one of our needs will be met. Maybe you
