  1. Kayla so enjoyed your detailed message.
    Appreciate now a deeper understanding of Divine Grace
    and the importance of Surrendering .

  2. I’m recently retired and I’m still shouting “I DO IT.” I am in the process of rebuilding my website and I need help moving from my wordpress blog.

    Kayla Thank YOU-I definitely relate!

    • YES! I always think, “I can do this myself!” — and it often times goes a bit haywire. Praying you are able to receive the grace God has for you today.

  3. Amen \0/

    Thank you Kayla for this reminder today…and everyday…”embrace the beauty of resting in the One who co-creates alongside you.”

  4. Kayla,

    When life throws curve balls my way I surrender to God. My hope & trust is in Him alone. 2019 I was laid off from a part-time job. Left the office giddy as I knew deep down that God had better things in store for me. Two weeks later I was part-time clerical at the hospital. Fast forward two years and once again my unit is being shut down. They put me in an ICU Covid unit. While there they wrote a full-time position just.for.me. Now a few years later they have given me a new clerical job still in ICU. All during those times I hoped & trusted that God had my best interest.

    Blessings 🙂
