As many of you know, this last year was a rough one for my wife and I, but last Friday, the Lord delivered us out of the desert and into the promised land with a dream job. During my time of trouble, I often fell on the verses below to get me through the trials. I published this before, but as I went through it this morning, I realized how important it is to keep your mind focused on God’s word during your times of trouble. Have a great Monday folks.
