This post is for me. But, as they say, if the shoe fits…
Do you ever feel like the world’s biggest hypocrite? I confess, I do.
Do I really believe…
that God can heal chronic pain and illness?
that God can restore broken marriages?
that God can quiet the wind?
that God can save the vilest of sinners?
that God restores what the locust have eaten?
that God can make straight the crooked places?
that God can provide when everything is coming up zero?
that prodigals really “come home”?
Have you ever told someone that you would pray…
and then, forget?
