Joseph: It’s just perfect!

Too often I wait for the perfect time, perfect place, perfect person to do the thing I feel called to. What a waste! God can bless the imperfect places of life, so I don’t need to wait for perfection to act.

Jacob: Say goodbye, Say hello

Covenant sees your past, understands your present , but looks forward to your future (pain and all). Most importantly, it means, God is in it.
