  We don’t have to carry guilt. We confess. We repent (turn away from sin). Then, we trust Christ that He paid it all for us on the cross. Even though we many times live with the consequences of our mistakes, we can have peace and experience joy because we are forgiven by Christ. The […]

  What we see as small, God may see as huge. Who we view as unimportant, God sees them as incredibly special.
