8.5.2020 – The “Little Things” are “Big Things”

I’m realizing that…often the things we think matter, really don’t matter as much as the things we think are “too little” to matter.

In the moment we take hold of His hand… He begins to prepare, sanctify, purify, dedicate, and reserve usโ€”to make us holy and consecrated for His purpose… He takes us to a place of being “set apart”… “designated or separated for a particular use.” God’s ways are so far beyond our waysโ€”He does things we… Read More 8.4.2020 – He can do Wonders with His Brush ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ–Œ
