From the Heart: Seeking Hope
Read Psalm 42;
V.11, Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

From the Heart: A Home In Heaven
John 3:3, Jesus said, ”Unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
