Fellow Believers’ Journeys

Where do you go for peace and comfort in the midst of the turmoil that that kind of news brings to your soul? If you have cultivated a growing relationship with God, great solace is found in His presence, love, mercy and grace…But even with those thoughts tucked deeply in our hearts, we often need to feel that we are not alone…that others have gone through these waters before…that in their stories we can find hope and confidence to face our own journey with strength.
