Confirming Our Time Together! GOD IS AMAZING!

If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. Jeremiah 29:13 The above verse was my K-Love (radio station) verse this morning.  I smiled because it’s what we talked about yesterday!  Not only are we being more responsible with God’s Word in our personal walk with daily meditation, but we are also committed to…
