Surrendering Personal Possessions by June Foster

  Surrendering Personal Possessions My husband and I recently decided to travel the US while we still have our health. We sold our house and moved back into our RV, giving up most of our worldly goods.

The Comfort of Full House and Wind Chimes

If you’re on Facebook, you’ve seen the relationship status choice: It’s complicated. Yeah, that’s me. Not my marriage, but me. And Jesus. What makes it so frustrating is Jesus isn’t feeling any complications. He knows. And I’m really having a hard time with that. There are things I know about me that I finally receive. I’m an intercessor. I’m called to stand in the gap and pray. I’m a scribe.…
