One of Those Days…

He [Jesus] is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. — Colossians 1:17 So, if I'm not in Him, how can I expect all things to hold together? Folks have said that trusting Jesus is a crutch. So happy to have a crutch that CANNOT fail, break, malfunction, go out of style, be …
