June 11, 2007

Discovering God’s Potential Have you ever wondered if God can use you? At some point, most of us have. We sigh, “Lord, there is no way I can serve you.

I had felt the burden for such a haven, and the need to trust God continually for each dollar was overwhelming. I was experiencing worry, doubt, and […]
