Have Hope

I’m sick and tired of life right now. I don’t want to be in the Prayer Room at all, and I don’t want to live in Kansas City anymore. My soul is unsatisfied; my spirit is restless. But you know what? I have hope. Not much, but it’s as effective as a candle in a […]

Remember It, Please

And He said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.” (Luke 7:48) How comforting those words must have been to hear. Oh wait, Jesus says that to all of us who love Him. Have you ever heard it? Have you ever sensed His affirmation of this fact? Have you breathed the relieved breath of one who […]
