The Gift of Time

By Inside Out with Courtnaye I would venture to say that time is a gift from God. And I don’t know about you, but I’m grateful for it. I actually need it to do all that is required of me in a 24-hour day and in my life. But I also desire it to do the things that I enjoy. How about you? Do you see time as a gift from God? The Bible tells us in Ephesians 5:16, ‘Making the best use [...]

Sometimes it’s hard. Sometimes it’s overwhelming. However sometimes, it’s exhilarating! And that’s totally natural, too. But no [...]

How to Avoid Drifting

By Inside Out with Courtnaye Drifting happens. Yet, it can be avoided if you catch yourself. Just think about it in a natural sense - like driving a car late for an extended trip. You know that you’ve been driving the distance, but then all of a sudden, you find yourself becoming more and more exhausted as the journey continues. Before you know it, you have to fight to stay awake. And maybe, just maybe, if not awake enough, you start drifting onto the [...]
