When I first began my search for truth, God began to speak to me in unusual ways. (At least they were unusual for me at the time).
In January, 1981, American hostages were being held in Iran. The Embassy had been overthrown and all the government workers had been held captive for more than a year…a tense situation indeed.

Day 28 28 Days To Confidence In Prayer

My husband has often taught on this principle. He calls it the “Law of Measure.” It’s as if all of creation holds this balancing scale, and we get to decide how much of God’s grace comes our way by what we do. (more…)
