Thanking God That My Plans Did Not Work

When I look at my life, I still try to find my own solutions. I am getting better about letting God handle situations in my life.

When You Trust In God, Even Fire Has No Power To Harm You

This morning, I was thinking about the scriptures verses in Daniel. When Daniel's friends were put in the fiery furnace, they did not know what would happen to them.

The next day, I feel overwhelming… Continue reading Everyone Can Change
