I have been intensely studying the book of Romans lately and it has settled me in ways I didn't realize I needed setting. It has cleared up questions and strengthened my walk which honestly has been a little wobbly lately. I've been letting the junk of this world get in the way of my life … Continue reading G.R.A.C.E.
"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Another is what this gripping song is about; that one day I will be a spectator at the judgement seat of Christ and I will see someone I should have witnessed to, should … Continue reading Words I Never Want To Hear
Ah, how Spurgeon always manages to bring home to roost the truths I have been wrestling with. Tonight was no exception with this tender reminder of just how far Jesus Christ has brought me, and how eternally thankful I am that He made me, bought me, forgives me!
