At the edge of eternity

This past week in the Netherlands I was a guest member of the teen Bible camp run by the missionaries. It was a mentally and physically tiring week, but it was so worth it to get to be with these incredible teens and staff members. Thursday night we ended with a campfire song and testimony...

Love that overcomes

Does it ever occur to you that the foundation of the story of the world is love? Love was carried on the breath of God as He spoke the world into being. He formed each aspect of it with tender care. Love was perfect bliss in the garden of Eden, as God walked with man.... Continue Reading →

Note: This is the first post I ever wrote for this blog, way back around September. But for some reason, every time I stumbled on it in the drafts folder, I felt like it wasn't the right time to share it. Today, however, I was again reminded of the principle in this post, and so...
