Last night we had dinner guests (love it!) and house guests (my in-laws, love them!), and a wonderful discussion took place about God's faithfulness in the hard times. We talked about how sometimes in the difficult places God teaches us things, and that often we are...
Luke 9:3 - "Jesus told them: Take nothing for the journey - no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra tunic."Lately God has been talking to me, again and again, about purpose.
