The song was played for me during a time when I thought I had to be perfect; when I had to be in control to find peace. The venue was a personal formation seminar.
Editor’s note : This is a guest post from Jeff Goins of Goins, Writer . This new year, do something different: stop setting goals. If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results, then making resolutions for another year is a sure-fire way to drive yourself crazy.
