In the midst of doubts, confusion, fears, storms, struggles and sorrows – stand…stand on the solid, dependable and eternal word of God. God’s word is His bond and you can bet the ranch on that.
- “There, peeping among the cloud-wrack above a dark tor high up in the mountains, Sam saw a white star twinkle for a while.
