2019: A Year of Growth

Active Faith // Being Held

Driving home from my community college yesterday, intense pressure from the Lord laid upon my chest. It was a moment with the Lord in awe of seeing His hands at work in my life even more. I know my Father is faithful, and looking back over our journey together always confirms that. I have been […]
