What you may not know

James Pack maintains his own website and wrote up quite a profound and honest piece. A very honest and straightforward perception on one’s experience with feeling abandoned.

Confidence in our Christian Faith

For thou art my hope, O Lord God: thou art my trust from my youth~ Psalm 71:5, KJV ~ ~ January 7, 2020 Devotional ~ Discouragement is a natural part of our existence.
