Creating Treasure

“I have the strength to face all conditions by the power that Christ gives me.” Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭13‬ ‭ All conditions. All is pretty encompassing.

Tolerating Trouble

“We also boast of our troubles, because we know that trouble produces endurance, endurance brings God's approval, and his approval creates hope. This hope does not disappoint us, for God has poured out his love into our hearts by means of the Holy Spirit, who is God's gift to us.” ‭‭Romans‬ ‭5‬:‭3‬-‭5‬ ‭ I'll be... Continue Reading →
