Stay your course and focus solely upon the foundation of your faith, the path upon which you step, the hand that you know will always catch you, the eyes which will forever be brimming with love.”

“Sometimes you must acknowledge what you are before you can change who you are.”

You have been with me for nigh unto three years and in those years you have seen Jesus’ power raise a man from death, cure a woman from sickness, mend the broken, redeem the sinner, and bless the unloved. Tell me, why do you keep running?”
