I believe that the things that we are feeling and seeing today can lead to two paths;
-or the chance to KNOW the LORD more.
What ever you might be seeing or feeling today, look at it as a God ordained opportunity to KNOW Him more. I’m not saying it is easy. There are several really HARD things that are facing us today; including sorrow for our family who lost everything yesterday when their house burned down. But let us encourage each other to take what we see and feel and find what we KNOW.
