Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law. This is an area where I need to see that my concern for Betty is an “all things” and is working for our good. Help me to see how to love her and support her, how to…

But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my words?” The Jews did not accept the words of Moses and certainly rejected Paul's writing. They did not accept the Word of the LORD, God, the Almighty as spoken by a member of the Trinity. Hearts of…
