Relaxed Reliance on Him

Posted on

 It seems that the mantra in today’s self-help world is I’ve got this! I’m strong and well-able to make life work myself by eating right, working out, following the principles of the latest and best self-help guru (fill in the blank), and the list goes on and on and on.
