Would you trust Crazy Bob’s Autos or Flow Honda with the purchase of your next car? If you needed a sitter for the kids would you ask the person next to you in the checkout line at Food Lion or a trusted friend or family member? This Sunday we’ll see that God gives you his word. That’s something you can always trust.
Thorns are maybe what pricked you a couple days ago when trying to prep your roses for your girl. Thorns in life hurt. One of the questions that people often as is why? What is God thinking? We’ll consider the thorn in the Apostle Paul’s life this Sunday.
When JD Rockefeller was asked, “How much money is enough?” he answered, “Just a little bit more.” Are you never quite satisfied? This Sunday come and hear how God has provided for your every need and how he unlocks the key to your happiness.
