How Can We Relate?

Though there is so much to be said for the blessings of living a sheltered life. I have experienced and heard from many people that it can have its disadvantages as well.

You can run, but you can't hide!

You Can Run But You Can’t Hide! Have you ever tried to play ‘Hide and Seek’ with God? Are you playing the game with Him right now? If so, how is that going for you? I’m just going to take a wild guess and say, “I bet you’re losing!” If we “run” like Jonah and “do” like […]
