8-6-17: A Wise Choice


This Sunday, we delve further into the teachings of Christ with a faithful classic - the feeding of the 5,000 (Matthew 14:13-21).  I'm deeply inspired by this text.  Just when I'm ready to give up on certain parts of, or concerns in my life, I am reminded of the overwhelming fullness that is our Creator.  I pray She will speak a word of comfort and grace to us, providing food for our journeys.
