Make that a Double Please

I don’t know about you, but after a little break away from work, I tend to need a double-portion of strength to return. Therefore, I am grateful for today’s Verse of the Day, reminding me that renewal and rejuvenation awaits those who put their trust in God. “But they that wait upon the Lord shall…

Lit

A light is only good to anyone if it is switched on. One can be surrounded by light bulbs but still stumble around in darkness because all of the lights are off. The Word of God is no different. We can be surrounded by Bibles, but if they’re only serving as dust-collectors, their impact is…
