In my post over Matthew, I said I was going to try to stay away of the "going through trials" themes, yet I keep coming across awesome books and sermons and they speak directly to my heart.I recently listened to a 3 sermon series over...

After finishing Psalms, I wanted to start reading a different book of the bible. It was put on my heart and mind to re-read Matthew. After focusing on sermons and scriptures on the topic of trials (probably 99% of posts on here) for the past...
