Clear Focus, Part 7: Think Big (#964)
Good morning! In today’s session, we’ll continue our series on having a clear focus.

But, in light of this big event you have going on and everything else, it would probably be rather insignificant. You think of something bigger, and then the challenges of life may not going away, but suddenly they seem much more manageable. So, we’re going to look at thinking big. We’ll to II Chronicles 25….
