“The biggest question of all, however, was wordless. Inexpressible. It encompassed an irrational fear that my prayers and my efforts were wasted..” I apologize for the heavy material that follows, but this is what I need to write about this week.

An Awakened Hope

By | Stories | One Comment

There is no circumstance, no sin from which God cannot rescue you, deliver you, redeem you. There is such incredible potential for beauty in the brokenness of our lives.
