Ask Him to remind you that in order to really know someone, you must spend time with them... God is no different.
Ask Him to remind you that in order to really know someone, you must spend time with them... God is no different.
Behind all of our prayer requests should be a desire to grow closer to Jesus.
When the future is uncertain and all you see is darkness, you have something you don't have during times of tranquility: the opportunity to trust in Jesus.
Rest assured that your heavenly Father will give you exactly what you need.
“Ask Him to help you to be successful in discovering the different ways each one in your family needs to be loved.” Jane Trufant Harvey
