You might ask what this has to do with the circle of life. Well, we go through stages, don’t we? My stage is now practicing my faith – letting God be God. I’ve read the Book, bought the t-shirt, and it’s time to prove that I believe that my God can never fail – that He is who His Word says He is, and that He does what He says He will do. Period. That’s the circle of my life in Christ. Now I take a deep breath, grab on to my Daddy’s hand, and step . . .
