Jesus Give Away

Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me! Psalm 66:20 What a privilege we have to pray to the Creator of the Universe, our Loving Father who hears our prayers and answers...not always in the way we want, but always in the way that is best for us and His Kingdom! Pray to him, wait patiently, and see what blessings he has prepared just for you! Joy in Jesus, Miss Luehring
