We’ve spent a week fixing our eyes on God and His hope that He graciously and powerfully gives us. It is a hope that spans all sorts of joys and trials. It is a hope that He upholds by His power & grace and not our own good behavior. Our hope is all-encompassing and steadfast.… Continue reading A Well That Won’t Run Dry
