The Nearness of God (Sunday Quote)

Some time ago, early in the morning, I read in my devotional “A Diary of Private Prayer” by John Baillie. As the sun slowly rose the beams of light shone through my kitchen window. The rays broke through some stained glass and hit the… Continue Reading “The Nearness of God (Sunday Quote)”

An Instrument of God
