Almighty Unchangeable God {TTB12}

Do you ever think about reading the book of Job and then wonder what God will try to teach you through it? What trials you’ll face if you read it? When I saw it coming up on my reading plan for this week, I admit, I was a little concerned. Life has been kind of […]

Dealing with Discouragement

We all get discouraged at some time or another. If you’re human, and you’re reading this, you know what I’m talking about. Maybe you got passed over for that promotion you wanted. Maybe you came down with the flu just when you desperately needed to get something else done. Maybe nothing happened to you, but […]
