Leave Me Alone!

Posted by Scott Foster on

I try.I really do. I’ve been working for years on getting to a place where, in and among the stuff that happens every day, I’m in a near-constant state of prayer. Sometimes I’m conscious of it and sometimes not. Sometimes it’s automatic, but most times not. Sometimes, I...
