When I go to work, I’m going to the Kingdom. I’m not working for the King, I’m working with the King. The Kingdom is not restrained to the walls of the Church. -Kris Vallotton Many days, I used to drag myself to work. But its not that I don’t love my jobs, for I do.

Are you letting your chains break your praise or is your praise breaking your chains? -Word of Life Church Yesterday I almost let my praise be swallowed by my circumstances.
