Chan-Lo No Comments

Like most people, I don’t like when things don’t go according to the plans I make and I’ll try everything in my power to MAKE something happen, even if it means frustration and aggravation on my part. This song by Lawrence Flowers is one that strikes a chord by emphasizing where are our energy should be going. Instead of wasting time trying to change and control things outside of our power, setting our minds and hearts on what God has in front of us will allow Him to take care of the rest.
