Posted on June 19, 2020 | By Robby White

Posted on March 31, 2020 | By Robby White

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28 Anytime tragedy occurs there is always a tendency to attribute the results as an act of God. Some even point to Romans 8:28 as the evidence that everything […]

Posted on February 24, 2018 | By Sam Hawkins

Today’s reading from Genesis follows Hagar’s flight from Sarai’s anger and God’s intervention. This account of God’s attentiveness to the needs of a lonely enslaved girl suffering abuse is a powerful statement of God’s concern.
