The BIG Answers

So on and off Friday evening and most of the day Saturday I studied, I worshiped, and I prayed. I was seeking God in a way and with an intensity that I never had before. I wanted His answers, not mine. But nothing was happening. Saturday evening, I took a break to do some laundry. While […]
