Well Done!!

Terrific

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR FAITHFUL FINALISTS!!! You all probably thought we had dropped off the face of the planet, and that we were NEVER going to finish this thing up! But never fear, though we are irresponsibly late with this final part, we have NOT forgotten those of you who have finished this...

Day 24 ~ Grace THROUGH Faith

Tree

I was always asking God for His everlasting grace, thinking I would then put more faith in Him… but instead of grace, I just got frustration. “I need Your grace!”  I would say, but it seemed like my prayer wasn’t getting much farther than the ceiling.  I was getting upset with God (even though...

And Now, We Will Hear From You the People!

Grace

Well, since we smashed so many verses into one post, we are officially done with hearing from our leaders!  So now it's your turn!  A huge "Thank You" to those who have written so far, and an "It's not too late" for those who haven't had a chance yet! :) Here's the first of our posts from you: Ephesians...
