What has your story gifted you?

  • Strength

"And because of my story and the thing that I've learned to go through and trust God with, I have learned, you know what, I don't have to control it. I don't have to manipulate the actions. I don't have to lead things where they'll work together for me. God makes all things work together for good to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose."
