Whats Client Say

I have seen you with me next to a quiet river in winter when all seemed lifeless I have seen you in the countless hours of writing when all seemed hopeless Yet somehow what is left standing is a man When all that is left is my faith in God to help It’s a lesson I had to wait to learn, when all I can imagine is adversity calling me to something better Life seems so challenging, so joyless, when nothing is left but to struggle and all that is left is to hope. excerpt from God’s Love Left Standing (In The Waiting 90 Day Devotional)
