“I hate this coat!”

It was the verse of the day on my Bible App, and I had also just read it in a real 'Bible with paper pages' that morning. It was rolling around in my head and I thought, "I'm probably going to be needing to apply these words at some point today... And the rest of... Continue Reading →
