Jesus, Proved

I love when I reread portions of scripture and verses that I paid no attention to the first time around pop out. I either think, "Oh, wow!" or "Duh!" It was the former in this case as I read Acts 4.

He Already Thought for Me

I overthink literally, not figuratively, everything.

Even when thick dark gray clouds are spread across the sky, we know the sun is there. We can’t see it, but we know it’s there. The sun rises, moves… Continue reading Sunrises

I'm not kidding when I tell you that in the past month or so, one thing after another has happened to me. It hasn't only been little things, like losing a pair of shoes or twenty dollars, it's been big hardship after big hardship. I've felt every type of negative emotion - sorry, confused, hurt, anger,… Continue reading Great is His Faithfulness
