And we know that for those who love God all things work together
for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
There are some scriptures that we cling to during times of uncertainty. Most of these scriptures are promises that bring us hope. Yet, if we're honest with ourselves there are a lot of days where the same hopeful promise leaves us feeling hopeless. Have you ever proclaimed Romans 8:28 over your life only to be left feelin...
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God
and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
2 Corinthians 13:14
Have the routines of daily life been holding you captive? Has your mind set of routine kept you from walking in obedience? Routines are great and much needed for most of us.
