Fear Not

“You whom I took from the ends of the earth, and called from its farthest corners, saying to you, "You are my servant, I have chosen you and not cast you off"; fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you,... Continue Reading →

The Father Loves You

“In that day you will ask in my name, and I do not say to you that I will ask the Father on your behalf; for the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me and have believed that I came from God” ‭‭John‬ ‭16:26-27‬ ‭ESV‬). It's not uncommon to hear horror stories of... Continue Reading →
