Day 27: Unboring
I am pretty BORING.
I spend most of my time
with my nose in the BIBLE.
But then again,
that is what saved me.
The moment I saw with my own eyes
that the word "ANXIOUS" was in the bible,
I was blown away,
as "ANXIETY" was my middle name.

"How? you ask. In CHRIST. GOD put the wrong on HIM who never did anything wrong, so we could be put right with GOD" (2 Corinthians 5:20).
So I think I am good with being BORING
because BORING brings me
