From Faith To Faith

Sometimes what propels us to move forward or soar higher are the questions that we are being asked that pop up during ordinary conversations.  Either we answer them directly or take the questions home with us to think and re-think.

Enhancing Relationship!

Sometimes during our busy schedules, we tend to push ourselves to focus on Him that puts us to the end of ourselves just to connect to Him, not knowing that the God of the universe Who loves us dearly and deeply is continually without interruption focused on us 24/7.
