Just Be Available to God

  Just Be Available (Read Part 1 here.) Do you have trust issues? I do. I mean who hasn’t been hurt? Abandoned? Left behind. There are those who say they love us, but then turn their backs on us. And then there is God. He wants us to follow Him and be available to Him … but it’s not as if He speaks to us in a clear, audible voice, right? He wants us to trust Him, but we have so {Read More}
