Plus learning new stuff like how to fast, keeping the Sabbath day holy, etc. And of course, there are always other things … Continue reading Learning from my trials

What spoke to me was the "trust God through everything, no matter what" (paraphrased).This is one of the things that God is working with me on now (one of the many). I have not been consistent with much in my life for very long (in … Continue reading Continuous trust
