He found him in a desert land, and in the howling waste of the wilderness; He encircled him, He cared for him, He kept him as the apple of his eye. Deuteronomy 32:10 I've been struggling. Hard. Depression is a very real thing in my life that I've known since I was sixteen. It's an… Continue reading 1/22/2019 Devotional
And there you shall serve other gods of wood and stone. And you shall become a horror, a proverb, and a byword among all the peoples where the Lord will lead you away.
