UBER Is So Kingdom

Our 6 a.m. UBER ride culminated in prayer with an Iranian refugee, who chose Christ over Islam. He said we were an answer to his early morning God-request, yet he was the answer to ours. How we missed the tiny, but boldly visible, cross hanging from his rearview mirror, I will never know.  As we […]

Lord, break my heart where Yours is broken and move my feet toward the cracks with a grateful and joyful heart! Amen

Do Not Hold This Sin Against Them
