At our home, if you want to know if someone is telling you the truth, we would ask, “Jesus knows?” and if they said, “Jesus knows.” we knew they were not lying to us! There’s something about giving your word! To give our word means that it is truth to you, you mean what you […]
The Best Way to Keep Your WORD before you every single day!
What you may not know about me is that God has given me a Word for the Year for several years of my life now. One year, my word was discipline. One year the word was balance. I believe God has given me those yearly words to keep me focused on what He wanted to do that year in my life.
