You Were Made for This

You Were Made For This .png

Four years ago, I did one of the hardest things I have ever done. I went on a mission trip to the Amazon Rainforest for the purpose of building churches in remote villages.

Our Daily Bread

Daily Bread Devo- Pure Radiant Beauty Give us today our daily bread. {Matthew 6:11

The Lord’s prayer is probably one of the most quoted pieces of scripture. It is uttered everyday by believers all across the world and I know that I have prayed it countless times.

Do you ever feel like God isn’t listening to your prayers? Or maybe, do you believe he is listening but he just doesn’t want to answer you? Unanswered prayers can be discouraging and even debilitating to our faith, but take heart you are not unheard.
