Thought For an abundant day

The Gift We Leave At The Altar

Matthew 5:23-24

Be Renewed By Faith And Not Break

Today I will pray that when I get to the breaking point I will not break. That the Holy Spirit will strengthen me in my weakness, uphold me in my failing, and renew me in my weariness—this is faith. Matthew  8:26 And He said to them, Why are you timid and afraid, O...
