Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side. Later that night, the boat was pounded by the waves, and the wind was against it. Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him, they were terrified. “It’s […]

February 24, 2020, By: Dana Cramer

“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them—yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.” 1 Corinthians 15:10 The ultimate paradox of recovery is this: You have to surrender to win! […]

Fitting In
