Walking by Faith

Walking by faith IS walking by sight. The thing is, we don’t walk according to what we can perceive with our 5 senses. Though we may be in a dire situation financially, relationally, emotionally, we are charged to walk forward with the Lord. We don’t often see many people in today’s world operating without a … Continue reading
