Should I Walk by Faith?

It is often stated that we walk by faith and not by sight. The passage comes from 2 Corinthians 5:7 (KJV). Many are adamant about "walking" in faith. But I'd like to share how walking is not enough.

Single Moment

Single Moment

Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? (NLT) -Matthew 6:27 You know the feeling you get when you start to worry? Anxiety rises up inside and the situation consumes your thoughts.
