INTIMACY WITH GOD

Sure, there is probably a grain of truth in them, but sometimes it’s a pretty small grain!”– Dan Seaborn, 26 Words That Will Improve The Way You Do Family, (2002)
All In God’s Timing
“The best thing you and I can do is to stop looking at our watches and calendars and simply look by faith into the face of God and let Him have His way–in His time.”– Warren Wiersbe, God Isn’t In A Hurry (1994)
