One thought on “Crisis

  1. What a great reminder to me in the midst of a deep trial as I finish up a Sunday School lesson and keep repeating the truth of scripture to myself. The itemized list that resulted in my mind and heart as I reflected on His sovereign Spirit brings hope and help in the time of trouble.
