Our Ultimate Provider!

A few months ago, I moved into my new home and unfortunately my HVAC was non functional and actually dangerous for us to live in. If it had been working, we could have died of carbon monoxide poisoning. I could have gone to court. I had a good case. I even found a lawyer who […]

Rescuer

As I shared recently with a friend-God is our Rescuer. His heart is so good and His desire is for our rescue and salvation. Don’t forget that God sees you, is not against you, and desires to rescue you from sin and trouble. Be immovable because God is on your side!
