Although… yet I will rejoice!

‘Rejoice evermore!’ A simple commands, just two words but there are times in our lives when rejoicing feels impossible so why would God tell us to rejoice for evermore?

All Grace…

We’re totally unworthy of God’s favour Friends and yet His word is full of rich promises to His people because He’s a loving Heavenly Father and in Christ we are worthy!

David in the Wilderness…
