Purpose in the Waiting

Preparing in the Waiting

There are two periods in my life in which I recall transitioning to a new season. One was a move from Virginia to Texas. I had to leave friends that I consider family and a job I dearly loved.

Direct My Steps

This week I couldn’t decide which character from the Easter story to highlight, so I chose two. These individuals are key, as they worked behind the scenes for important events. Jesus’ crucifixion took place during the Passover celebration. The Last Supper Jesus had with His disciples took place in a large upper room. The Scripture… Continue reading Direct My Steps
