For Her Price is Far Above Rubies

Nothing is hidden from God. He knows the innermost thoughts of our hearts. I have prayed for years to be married to a saved, sanctified, loving, handsome, prosperous man.

It Takes Courage to Say “No”

Therefore was the king very wroth, and his anger burned in him.

Me and God Day
