    With the help of the holy spirit, we can go places with this verse of the bible. He is our strengthener, our comforter and our guidance. Let try as much as possible to lean on Him.

    This is my favorite verse. Waiting definitely requires faith! To wait means to stop, be still, don't move, hold on expectantly ,-wait for God's directions, but all the while, serving the Lord, read Bible, and pray. Trust God. He loves you so much!

  • The earth is flat, a flat circle not a sphere. Men's science is wrong and churches have this wrong. If you draw a circle on the ground, is it a sphere? It is flat and you can sit on it. What we learned from men was wrong and God is right. See you everyone on the other side. Bless you all with love and joy.
