Joy

Joy can come again. Jesus can interlace moments of peace and deep joy amidst our biggest heartaches.

Your Sin Will Find You Out

The verse of today for me is:

“But if you fail to do this, you will be sinning against the LORD; and you may be sure that your sin will find you out.”

Numbers 32:23
